Home Decorating Hacks

Let your sofa have a ‘conversation’ with your chairs. It’s a simple trick you can find at hotel lobbies and even rooms to invite people to sit and have a conversation. The furniture are arranged ‘U shape’ or ‘H Shape’. In the ‘H shape’, two armchairs which sit side by side is facing the sofa. In the middle is a coffee table. While the ‘U shape’ places the coffee table in the center, the two armchairs on its left and right side, and the sofa at the middle. All chairs and the sofa are facing the coffee table.

Another furniture tip is that don’t push the furniture against the wall. Doing that sets the limit of the room. ‘Floating’ furniture gives the illusion that the room is a lot larger.

Let natural light in. Want to save on lighting expenses but still make your home fabulous? Go for natural light. Sunlight not only provides good lighting but disinfects your home. It’s also invigorating foe some to get much needed rays. This also means who no longer

Carpet Ideas for Different Rooms

Here is why you should consider adding a carpet in your home:

Warmth – most rooms in the house may have tiles. During colder seasons, tiles make the house quite cold. If you don’t have underfloor heating a carpet will do just as well and save you money on the electricity. The fibres in the carpet accumulate and retain heat thus creating a natural heater. As you know, warm air rises so the carpet will constantly circulate that heat.

Style – carpets create a fashion statement. Choosing your favourite carpet will add a personal touch to the room. They can also add with some colour and life to an empty room.

Cut – many of these lovely items can be cut to the desired size to fit in a room. Many designs will not get distorted if a portion is removed from the edges. Extra edging such as a fringe can also be added to soften the look.

Completes a Room – as stated before, something covering the uniform floor could brighten up the room.

Dinner Table Decoration

Choose a colour theme that looks appealing to you. If it is not a specific occasion and is just a family dinner on a Sunday, then you can play around with different colour ideas. The colour of the tablecloth should be different to the colour of the serviettes or napkins unless the napkin is placed on the plate.

If you are going to put a centrepiece in the middle of the table it then it should be the focal point of the dinner table. On many dinner tables, the food will be placed in the centre for everyone to serve themselves. If this is the type of setup you are planning on having then perhaps the centrepiece is for another day.

Centrepieces should not cover the face of the person opposite you. It either needs to be higher than the heads of the guests or only 20cm from the surface of the table. It could get uncomfortable for your guests to speak and not see the person’s face that they are speaking to.

Contemporary Interior Design

When designing a home from scratch, it is imperative to go with a long-lasting approach to resist the test of time. Some of the aspects that must be considered are the quality of the resources used, the general project, and the locality of the project. Even if it is tempting to track, implement modern trends, there is a need to exercise caution. Some designs easily become out-dated. Even more, it is also essential to make the most of the interior space and to create allowances for future growth.

Customization is a second important aspect. Instead of going for ready-made furniture that take up too much space, having customized beds and couches with customized storage areas will not only save quite a large space, but improves the flexibility. Creating additional storage, as much as the circumstances allow will certainly increase the overall value of the property.

The choice of colour is another is personal choice, especially if there is a plan to change the appearance of property in the future. Generally, bold colours attract too much attention, but neutral colours have positive appeal to every one of us.

Nowadays, homes with neutral paint colours have relatively

Blackout Curtains

First of all, what are blackout curtains? A lot of people are under the false impression that blackout curtains are completely black, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. Blackout curtain linings are actually usually made of white fabric. They are made with tightly woven material that blocks all kind of outside light from entering the room.

This can have all types of benefits. Per example, I use to work as a night guard at a local hospital, and I had a lot of issues getting some quality sleep when I came back home because my curtains weren’t blocking the light properly. A lot of people work night shifts these days and finding blinds that can do the job can be really difficult, since most blinds are made for aesthetic reasons, not efficiency.

Another reason why you should consider getting blackout curtains is because of their amazing energy saving properties. Blackout curtains can help you save on energy bills in all kinds of ways. Per example, they can help you save on air conditioning by preventing sunrays from entering the room during hot summer days, hence keeping the room cooler naturally.

About Home Decor for Claustrophobic

Light colored or neutral walls and floors add a feeling of space to the environment. Leave windows uncovered and decorated with blinds that can be opened during the daylight hours and closed at night for privacy and/or consider curtains that frame the windows rather than cover them. Too many pictures on the walls can close a room in. Too much furniture can shrink your space and make it feel crowded. The furniture pieces should not only be small in number they should be light or neutral in color with maybe one or two colorful accent tables. Light gray furniture comes to mind accented with splashes of blue and orange pillows.

Lets move on into the dreaded kitchen, a place that seems to be especially susceptible to that closed in feeling. If one can afford it, a skylight is extremely helpful in providing light and airiness. White cabinets and light neutral counter tops with just a few often used items strategically placed can add a lot of space to the room.

Children’s rooms can be helped by offering convenient places to store unused toys and games. A desk and a bookcase in an older child’s room will

Properly Budget for New Designer Kitchen

Plan your budget – before you get to consider how you can save on your kitchen remodel project, you need to plan your budget. You need a clear idea of how you can afford to spend, or else any visit in a showroom will be in vain. A list of all the things you want to have in your kitchen is the first step in that regard. You can then have a consultation with a kitchen designer to get a rough idea of how much everything is going to cost.

Be very upfront of your budget – whenever you are working with a designer, you should be very upfront about the amount you can afford. They should be able to work with what you have and outline what areas you should focus on. If you have already devised a list of items that you want to have in your kitchen, definitely bring it with you.

Follow a budget plan – allocating a certain amount of money to certain aspects of your designer kitchen is a great way to stay ahead in the budgeting game. For instance, the most money will probably go for the constructing when

Log Cabin Decorating

When choosing furniture for your space, look for pieces you would find in a mountain cabin. Things that are earthy and woodsy. Large upholstered sofas in fabrics of earth tones and roomy oversized chairs in worn-looking leather can bring a homey and cozy feel to your room. Coffee tables, end tables or kitchen tables that are made from the woods used in log cabin decor will fit right in. For bedrooms, you will create an inviting look and feel by using log beds with thick quilts and large colorful pillows. Add a log dresser and bed side tables with soft lighting and you’ll have a room that is relaxing and tranquil.

Lighting is a key element in creating ambiance in your home. With high ceilings, a large chandelier would be the perfect way to make a statement in either your living room or the entry way. To compliment your rustic look, incorporate some table lamps or floor lamps made from wood or metal. Wall sconces add perfect lighting for that comfortable cabin feel. Elk antlers and deer antlers are now very popular in decorative lighting and have a wonderful look.

Get Cushion Scheme Right

  1. Number of cushions

When it comes to the number of cushions to be placed, one should always go with the thumb rule of ‘odd is key’. If you have a three seater you must place five comfortable cushions on it, to get the balance right. The only obvious exception being a single seater would only require only one cushion, anything more than that would mean crowding the space and would ultimately look ugly.

  1. Interspersing colours

The main thing about adding cushions to your living space is getting the colour scheme right. What’s essential here is how the colour of the home décor scheme blends with the colour of the cushions that I am adding to my couch or sofa. The thumb rule here being you must take the colour of the couch as the base colour and the hues of the cushions being a complimenting colour.

  1. Alternating hues

You may even go one step further in breaking the chain of the same colour cushions in a set. Though this requires a great sense of aesthetics to get it right, what you can do is have different colours of cushions in the

Designing Home Office

Measuring your workspace is important if you are going to shop some office furniture. You should choose the right size for your office desk. If you choose a very small small desk it can be uncomfortable to work. Or choosing a very big desk will mean smaller space for everything else. Do you want a sit-down or a stand-up desk? A modern or a traditional desk? When you choose the perfect desk type and size you can determine where to put it.

Your home office has to have a comfortable and supportive office chair. So many people are choosing a style over the functionality of a chair. This is wrong because your back can suffer due to the longer sitting. It is important to invest more in a chair that best suits to your needs.

When it comes to painting your walls you don’t have to use a complicated colour palette. Improve your mood by picking your favourite colour and use a lighter and softer tint of it. Then hang a few personal photographs on the wall. Motivational quote or beautiful wallpaper can boost your creativity and productivity.

Natural lighting is essential in any room.

Bedroom Decor

The door has a path that needs to be considered when rearranging furniture in your bedroom. About a meter needs to be left around the area of the door for comfortable movement. Your bed should be either in the centre of the room or pushed to the side to leave space for the door.

Considering plug points is also important. Many people take their phones to their rooms to charge at night. Often, we place the phone on our bedside table for easy reach. Either you need to have an extension cord that runs along your wall or you need to be closer to the plug point. You also need to make sure that nothing is covering the plug point for safety and practical reasons.

Pushing the bed against the wall or to one side of the room is perfectly fine. Pushing the bed towards the curtains has rules, though. Your curtains should not be trapped behind the bed making it impossible to open them. You might also tear them if you pull too hard when opening and closing them.

Having your furniture pushed to one side of the room might be comfortable for you

Art of Minimalism in Modern Decor

1. Make it Count-

Consider your home to be a beautiful puzzle. Let the decor be such that every product fits within it in a perfectly balanced way. Let there be no extra piece, however pretty it may be. Anything that doesn’t serve a purpose of fulfilling that puzzle is a piece that doesn’t count and so should simply be disregarded.

2. Quality vs. Quantity-

One must rather have key pieces which make a statement rather than multiple baubles that do nothing but create noise. Getting carried away by sweeping trends may sound quite alluring at first but will only prove to be a waste in the longer run. Instead, invest in timeless decor products. For example, of all the options of storage boxes online, it is advisable to buy vintage storage boxes rather than many other boxes for decoration. This will ensure that your accents look classy for years to come. Remember, the principle of quality over quantity to always maintain a cleaner, de cluttered home decor.

3. Left door in, Right door out-

Often we get so caught up in buying all the pretty things that come our way, we forget
