In order to plan your newly renovated or remodeled kitchen, you have to research ideas and plan in order to avoid making either minor or major mistakes. A mistake that is made most commonly is not arranging appliances to save steps or to have the smaller ones close at hand. There are three major appliances that every cook uses and they are the stove, refrigerator and sink. In fact, professional designers have named this the “golden triangle” since all three of these appliance are placed in a triangle that is easy to get to. So when you make your kitchen designs and you should do this before you start the renovation or remodeling, be sure to place the golden triangle onto the design first.
Some things in the kitchen we take for granted and forget to plan for them as the kitchen exhaust fan. Do not take for granted that they automatically come with the stove as they do not. Yet, the exhaust fan is important to not only keep the condensation over the stove light but it takes away unpleasant smells and lets in fresh air.
Interior design keeps on evolving throughout with the help of science and creativity. Peoples habits change, one feeding off the other. One movement that stands out is exactly the opposite, no movement at all.
You are basically designing each room to demand as little transportation as possible of you. Let me break it down. Bathrooms today are getting bigger and more accessorized, even though, stylewise we are trying to hide all our knick knaks. Big tubs, relaxing/spa hangouts are increasing the time we spend enclosed in that one space.
So here’s 2010. A new time is awaiting loaded with colourful visions. But before concentrating on the future forms we need to glance into the rear-view mirror. To know what is ahead it’s important to be aware of the past. Then deciding what stuff stays and goes. I feel we are moving on from these,
Minimalism: People are full of stories and bagage. A house without a colorful storyline is no house.
Trend, A rebellious movement against al kind of “trend obeying” would render the future more unpredictable.
Hopefully moving towards, Space instead of object focusing. Meaning, decorating with the eye on the space/area instead of consentrating on what we have to fill it with.
If you are someone who loves the looks of many hotels around the area you’ve stayed at, why not bring that style into your own home. By adding wooden floors or even molding can bring that feeling to life. There are a few steps which you’ll need to do when decorating your home in a formal style.
Formal homes and spaces usually stand out because of the perfect symmetry of their furniture, windows, flooring, and artwork. These things are usually flawlessly arranged onto a straight axis in perfect pairs all around the room. With formal interiors, there is always one focal point that is constructed to grab one’s attention. This may be a stunning picture window that looks straight onto a perfectly mowed lawn, or a fireplace located right in the middle of a long wall, or even just a beautiful furniture piece.
Formal decorating styles tend to look best in homes with high ceilings, tall or long windows, and other architectural features, like paneled walls and large fireplace mantles. Formal decorations are made to catch the attention of others with the use of ultra-polished windows, doors and woods, as well as one-of-a-kind furniture pieces that are of high interest.
Boxes, beautiful boxes. Lately our lives are easily showed into containers and put away to render our home more organized. But when did organization become the superior model of a home?
Maybe it’s because the front doors exterior is all the more caotic . Anyhow it’s a law that I dont approve of. The intriguing part of different peoples interiors is to see the reflection and connection between the house and the people living in it.
It’s there everyday. Giving you relif and comfort. It’s the Sofa. Somewhat of an anxiety purchase when it comes to furnishing a home.
Why? well as previously stated it’s always there, usually where the action is and therefore becoming an important piece. Beeing more or less expensive we are not changing couch as we are with our accessories.
Start your sofa story with taking a good look at your recent.
Besides the stile swap, what is it that you wished it had?
Is it worn down in certain area or stained?
People say history have a way of repeating itself so you better keep these things in mind. Just because the sofa is sparkling white doesn’t mean you will stop slobering.
