Great decorating ideas for your kitchen

kitchen decorated in london

decorating kitchen

Your kitchen is probably going to be the busiest room in your house, and that is especially true if you have a large family as there will always be someone who is in the kitchen at any given moment.

For the person who is responsible for the majority of the meals prepared in the kitchen, the kitchen is often seen as a very personal space. That is why it is important to make sure that this busiest and most used rooms in the modern home, is decorated they way that you want it.

Curtains can bring fresh new look

One of the simplest, but often most dramatic of all changes that you can make to your kitchen is to replace the old curtains with new ones. New curtains can change the whole look of your kitchen and even this one simple alteration can give your kitchen a whole new look.

Accessorize

Great decorating ideas for your kitchen include fresh accessories. During heavy use, your kitchen accessories can become old and prone to being damaged. That is why you need to think about replacing your old and worn out accessories with newer ones, as this will also go some way to changing the look and the feel of your old kitchen.

Items such as, kitchen towel holders, bread boxes and even storage boxes can make a dramatic difference to the feel of your kitchen. Another thing you can do is to buy yourself a new state of the art kitchen appliance, such as a new coffee machine or even a bread maker.

A new coat of paint

A new paint scheme could be just the thing to brighten up your tired looking kitchen, and it is amazing just what a fresh coat of paint or a new colour scheme can do to the appearance of your kitchen, especially when done in conjunction with the other ideas already listed here. Instead of painting the walls in one plain colour, you can add a personal touch by adding a border or by using stencils.

Artwork is something which a lot of people neglect in the kitchen, but it is a good way to liven up the walls of your kitchen, whilst at the same time giving it character.

By adding your personality to what is probably the busiest rooms in your home, then you are turning your working space in to more of a living space.

Optimise your office space

office decorating

Whether working in the office or from home, it’s always difficult to make the most of your space. You don’t want to be taking up too much room, but you don’t want to be cramped either. Not to mention the importance of properly storing personal belongings and supplies! This guide will help you make the most of the space you have, as well as helping you choose the proper desk and storage facilities.

Choosing the right desk

You’re going to be sitting at your desk for long periods of time throughout the day so it’s important to choose a good one, consider what type of workspace you need.

  • Firstly, don’t assume bigger is better with a desk, you may end up spending more on a big desk which just ends up using space and gathering clutter than being a productive work place. Look at your current desk or place of work and measure out the amount of space you use and use this to reflect your next choice of desk.
  • With multiple or large computer screens you’re going to need space for a keyboard as well as spare space. Consider getting a desk with a pull out portion underneath; you can store keyboards and other items here while keeping the top of the desk free. Look at different desk accessories and see if you can find any to help you be more productive.

Making the most of your floor space

Create a floor plan of your working space and look at the area you’re working with. Take into account furniture, walkways and other decorations.

  • Give yourself a 150cm (about 60 inches) space behind your desk where your chair would be. This gives you room to move around comfortably and have a pathway too.
  • Try to avoid cramping everything together if you can. And open space helps create an open mind and hopefully a better mind-set to help you work.
  • With wires and electronics, you can usually find accessories to help keep them tidy and out of harm’s way. If you don’t mind spending a little extra, look for wireless options, which tend to be quicker and help keep things orderly.

Using the proper storage

Storage is a vital part in optimising your office space, and fortunately there are thousands of different types and styles of storage facilities you can use.

  •  If you are looking for storage for around your desk, there are great options for shelving and racking systems. If you have space, take advantage of the room underneath your desk! Not only to the keep things ordered but it frees up space on top of your desk, just be sure that you have room left over for your legs to fit comfortably.
  • Properly measure out the space you’ll need to store items and use those measurements to invest in a sturdy shelf! Shelves take up little room and are easy to access, whereas boxes and such tend to take up a lot of room and are difficult to go through when you need something.

 

How to Pick the Right Mirror for your Bedroom

Minimalist-bedroom-with-stylish-mirror-modern-interior

If you are redecorating your bedroom, then you might well be considering adding a bit more style to it by introducing a mirror. The first choice that you will need to make when it comes to buying a mirror for your bedroom is whether you wish to have a vanity mirror, a freestanding mirror, or a wall mounted mirror.

The Various Types of Mirror

For practical use, that is for looking at oneself in the mirror to gauge how an outfit looks, freestanding mirrors are often the best solution, and you will often find these types of mirrors in the clothes shops. A vanity mirror will be one that is attached to a vanity or dresser, and these are often ideal for women that wish to sit down whilst applying makeup.

A wall mounted mirror speaks for itself, although they are a good item if you are looking to add the illusion of space to a small or cramped bedroom. Once you have made your choice, you will then have to decide on which design, shape and colour of bedroom mirror that you want.

Think About your Existing Bedroom Decor

When the times comes to go out and buy a mirror, you will need to think about how it will fit in with the other items of furniture that you already have in your bedroom. The mirror you choose should fit well, otherwise it is just going to look unsightly and out of place, and distract the eye.

Choosing a Freestanding Mirror

For the most part, a freestanding mirror will consist of two parts, and these are the stand, and the mirror itself. Typically, a freestanding mirror will pivot at the centre, allowing it to be adjusted, which will allow you to view your entire body, or just a certain part of it.

When choosing a freestanding mirror, make sure that you get one with a good strong base, and a strong pivot that will allow for easy movement. Also the mirror itself should be thick enough so that it does not warp and thus distort your image.

Choosing a Wall Mounted Mirror

Warping is also something that can seriously affect wall mounted mirrors, therefore, it is important that you find one that has some strong attachments and fixings on it, in order to lessen the chance of warping affecting your image.

 

4 Tips to Decorate your Daughter’s Room

ebony

If you are planning on decorating your daughter’s room in the near future, then you might be stuck for some original ideas. Depending on the age of your daughter, getting the decor just right is going to be somewhat difficult, not to mention complicated.

Just because your daughter is interested and obsessive about something now, does not necessarily mean that she is going to feel that way for a long time. In this article, we will take a look at some of the more common factors to consider when decorating a girl’s room.

Paint and Wallpaper

As a rule, paint is probably a better option than wallpaper if you have a very young daughter. Younger children have a tendency to scribble and draw on walls, and if your daughter is very young, paint should be your first choice.

In fact, a lot of paint manufacturing companies now specialise in offering paints for children’s rooms, which can be wiped clean, should they scribble or just get grubby finger prints everywhere. Wallpaper is a better option for when your daughter is more mature, and there are a lot of options out there

Blinds and Curtains

When the painting or wallpapering has been completed, you can accentuate it by the addition of blinds or curtains, which compliment the colour scheme you have chosen. In fact, a lot of people often choose to have both blinds and curtains for added style and for better privacy.

Furniture

Adding a table and a chair is a great way to make sure that pens and other implements find their way on to paper rather than your freshly decorated walls.

For younger girls, a desk will give them plenty of room to let their artistic side flourish, whilst for older girls, a desk will give them somewhere to do their homework. Another addition that will go down well is bunk beds. Bunk beds are ideal for when your daughter has a friend over for a sleepover.

Lighting

Something which is often overlooked by a lot of parents when the time comes to decorate their daughter’s bedroom is lighting, yet lighting a child’s room correctly can be just as important as any other room. You can opt for bright lamp shades, spotlights and do not forget a night light for those younger children who might find the dark a bit too enveloping.

Why Choose Eco Friendly Furniture?

eco-friendly-furniture-ideas

Due to the fact that more people than ever before are becoming concerned for the environment, the sales of eco friendly furniture are on the increase. Long gone are the days when people would just go out and buy the cheapest or best looking furniture.

In these modern times a lot more parameters come into play when the time comes to choose furniture, and caring about the environment is one of them.

Consumers are a lot more conscientious with regards to where their products are coming from, and this means that people want to make an informed choice about the type of furniture that they wish to put in their homes. In this article, we will take a closer look at some of the benefits of choosing eco friendly furniture.

Environmentally Friendly Manufacturing Processes

One of the big plus points with regards to eco friendly furniture is that the whole manufacturing process, from beginning to end, does not do any harm to the environment in any way possible. You may be under the erroneous impression that wooden furniture is not environmentally sound, due to the fact that it has been made from a tree.

However, this is not always the case, and the wood used for eco friendly wooden furniture is often taken from sustainable sources. This means that when an old tree is cut down to be turned into wood to make furniture, a new tree is planted in its place.

This also helps to prevent deforestation, which is currently one of the biggest threats to the stability of the planet’s delicate eco system.

Plenty of Designs to Choose from

Another aspect of eco friendly furniture that is often overlooked is the fact that just because it is eco friendly, does not mean that it is dull.

There is a lot of choice when it comes to eco friendly furniture and there are plenty of modern, contemporary designs to choose from, as well as plenty of more traditional designs.

In Conclusion

As you can see, there is a lot more to choosing eco friendly furniture than meets the eye, and there is no real need to go out and purchase furniture that is harmful to the environment, just because it looks better and sturdier than the eco friendly variety.

Eco friendly furniture has come a long way in the past few years, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

 

 

 

How to Decorate a Luxury Bathroom

ISp163cohhkz2c1000000000

Bathrooms are one of the most used rooms in any home, and they have come a long way from just being a functional room for washing and bathing. More people are now treating their bathroom as a sanctuary, a place where they can lay back and relax in a nice hot bath and forget their troubles for an hour or so.

Why you should upgrade your Bathroom

More people are looking for ways in which they can spruce up their old, staid and worn bathroom, and transform it in to a place where they can luxuriate and pamper themselves.

A good looking and luxurious bathroom can add a certain amount of chic and style to your home, as well as adding resale value to your home. The average bathroom does not have many different features, so by concentrating on these, you can really change the appearance of your bathroom to something more luxurious.

The Sink

A lot of people overlook the importance of the sink in the bathroom, and it is one of the most used items in anyone’s bathroom.

Choosing the right sink can completely change the appearance and feel of the room, and there are a number of different bathroom sinks to choose from including free standing sinks or ones that are encased within a cabinet.

The Bath

Taking a bath is one of those moments in life that can help you to relax and wash away both the physical and psychological detritus that you have accumulated during the day.

A long soak in a nice deep tub can completely alter your mood as well as cleansing your body, and so choosing a luxurious bath tub is an essential element to any luxurious bathroom. There are many contemporary designs, as well as more traditional designs.

The Decor

In order to complete the look, it is important not to overlook the importance of the decor of the room, such as the colour scheme and the tiles that you use. Good quality tiles can really add an extra dimension to your luxury bathroom, and a skilled tile fitter can transform a bathroom to one that is classy and sophisticated.

As you can see, there are not too many elements to luxury bathroom design, however, it is important that you get the selection of your bathroom items right, if you are going to create the luxurious feel that you want.

Tips to Decorate your Home Theatre

home theatreHome theatres are the latest thing in home design. With the costs of big screen televisions, projectors and surround sound systems falling, people are often tempted to add a home theatre to their property, either by adding an extension, or converting an existing room.

A lot of people already know how they are going to kit out their home theatre with the latest gadgets, yet they are often unsure about how to choose the decor.

How to select the most suitable decor

When the time comes to decorate your home theatre, you will need to make sure that the decor does not detract from the film watching experience of you and your guests.

If you have the money, soundproofing is a good idea, as not only can you have the sound turned up as loud as you want it without disturbing other people in the house, or indeed the neighbours, you will also not have the problem of noise from outside coming in.

Lighting

Lighting is important, and you will want a system that is not too expensive, but is easy to control. Dimmer switches are a great idea, as they will allow you to raise or lower the light levels to suit your requirements.

Walls and Floors

When it comes to the walls, you can avoid using expensive drapes and curtains, by using dark matt finish paint, as this will help to reduce glare. A nice dark burgundy colour is one of the more popular choices, as it a warm and inviting colour. The same goes for the flooring, and dark carpeting is a must.

Seating

As far as seating goes, then it really is a matter of taste and personal preference. If you really want to recreate the cinema going experience at home, there are plenty of companies on the internet that will provide and install cinema style seating.

However, as a lot of people know, these are not always the most comfortable of seats, especially for films that last more than a couple of hours. Instead, why not have a number of different seating options, such as one or two comfortable sofas, some beanbag seating for the children and maybe even a couple of reclining chairs.

Finally

It is possible to decorate your home theatre without the need to spend large amounts of cash, nevertheless, if you do have the money to spend, the only limit is your imagination and sense of style.

How to Decorate your Garden in 4 Steps

garden

For many homeowners, the garden is a place of tranquility and relaxation, an extension of the home where the great outdoors is made homier and fit for habitation. The garden is a living area that deserves to be beautified just as much as the living room, the better for you to entertain guests under the natural light of the sun, or the cool breeze of the night.

It sounds romantic, doesn’t it? However, getting a garden that does all that requires some work. In the eyes of the homeowner and visitor, much of a garden’s beauty comes from how it’s designed, from its layout, choice of flowers and plants, trees, terraces, to the lawns. This amalgamation can be brought to life by butterflies and birds that are drawn to gardens with thriving growth, and can be further enhanced with right garden décor.

Small Changes, Big Effects

The good news is that even the simplest of garden decorations can make a significant change to your garden’s entire look. The art of garden decoration is about making several small changes that come together to create a dramatic effect on your garden’s appearance—even the most elaborate garden had to start somewhere small.

Here are 4 steps you can take when decorating your garden for the first time.

  1. Plan your concept or theme ahead

When decorating your garden, the last thing you want to do is decorate on the fly, making additions because this piece looks pretty, or because you think a certain set of plants will look good in a corner of your garden. Doing this will only lead you to blowing your decorating budget, not to mention there’s a good chance your garden will have a hodgepodge of décor items—not a pretty sight.

If you want to have a smooth decorating process, think of a motif or concept before you even begin decorating the garden. Your garden decoration motif or theme will serve as a blueprint when choosing different kinds of plants and flowers, deciding between landscapes, and working on other aspects of your garden’s design. If an architect refers to blueprints when building a home, you should also do the same when decorating your garden, that is, if you want to keep your sanity.

  1. Choose the appropriate plants for your garden’s décor

If you’re a novice gardener and don’t know which plants to choose for your garden, it’s a good idea to consult with expert decorators of outdoor spaces for tips on which plant types, especially flowering plants, will fit your garden.

Depending on how you want your garden to look like, you could be looking at using an assortment of plants with varying colors and sizes.

A good rule of thumb is to group your favorite specimens in containers and place them at eye-level for you and your visitors to enjoy. Plants like agaves and senecios, which have unusual shapes, are best placed in separate containers instead of flowerbeds, where they disappear into the foliage.

  1. Make proper use of furnishings and ornaments

Garden furnishings and ornaments should be more than an afterthought in your garden. These items have the ability to guide your garden’s layout, serving as a base for your decisions when deciding how to shape your outdoor space. For instance, a wrought-iron gate, though simple, can be an elegant entrance to a beautiful green world, a fountain at the center of the garden is practically visitors to look into the waters and perhaps make a wish, while lanterns hung on trees can raise your eyes to the treetops, creating a larger sense of space. A bench can also inspire a nap, or an afternoon spent reading your favorite book.

In other words, furnishings and ornaments, when strategically placed, not only look pretty but also have the ability to tell people what to do, whether it’s to look up¸ look here, look down, or stay for a while.

But, as with most things in design, the trick is to find a balance, to not overdo it.

Consider the tables and chairs used in a garden. These furniture pieces should blend with other decorative objects in the garden and not overpower them. What this means is that expensive, all weather pieces may not necessarily be your best option, especially when the subtlety brought about by rush-finished iron dining sets works so much better.

  1. Lighting

Outdoor spaces like gardens can prove to be very romantic after dark, that’s if they’re lit by the right kind of light. When going about the business of lighting your garden, it’s imperative that you consider how lighting affects the appearance of your plants, furniture, and even garden stones at night.

Even the most manicured gardens can look terrible when cast under an unflattering glow.

You don’t have to be a professional to choose lamps for your garden—all it takes is research on your part. LED lamps have grown to be a garden favorite because they generate a bright light, and consume very little electricity. It doesn’t hurt either that they come in a wide variety of colors or color temperatures.
