The Industrial Kitchen Installation

The stark contrast of dark wood cabinets with white laminate countertops creates a clean look. If you are aiming for an industrial appeal in your kitchen installation, then opt for stainless steal hardware and appliances. Lack of colour in a room can make it feel uninviting, but low-hanging lights are a softening touch.

The “Upbeat” Kitchen Installation

On the other hand, bright blue paint and glittery chandeliers give this kitchen installation a dramatic flair. If you are going to make bold choices in colour and light fixtures, then try balancing the décor with some basics, like wood floors. In this case, the kitchen installation includes a shelf with family photographs, and a bowl of fruit, two simple additions that make ‘flamboyant’ also inviting.

Contrasting Colours with White in a Kitchen

Opting to use white (or any lighter tones) in your kitchen installation is a great way to open up a small space. You can still add dark or bright colours, as in the accents of blue in this photo, without making the room feel condensed. Tinted blue glassware is a great example of how to inexpensively and functionally add colour. Most laminates, flooring and appliances are available in white making it the most popular and simple kitchen installation colour.

The Contemporary Kitchen Installation

Muted tones throughout this more modern kitchen installation make for a sleek look. The tan cabinets blend effortlessly into the wooden countertops, creating smooth accents that complement each other without drawing the eye abruptly to one part of the room. Regardless of what colour or style you choose, stainless steel hardware is an affordable (and easy to clean!) choice.

The Country Kitchen Installation

The final photo is an example of a kitchen installation focusing on a more country style, with the peach coloured walls and the copper-coloured range hood over the stove. The black island unit and cabinets are bulky, fitting the sturdy look of a ranch-style home.

Painting and Decorating Affects a Bedroom’s Emotion

Cream Bedroom Full Refurbishment

‘Chromatherapy’ is a philosophy that deals with the effect that colour has on one’s mood. The principles date back to early Arab and Egyptian civilizations, which observed that sunny warm yellows brighten one’s mood, and cool blue skies have a calming effect. When painting and decorating your bedroom, it may prove beneficial to consider how your colour scheme not only changes the aesthetic elements, but also could effect the emotions you feel in that space.

Types of colours that effect your mood

Before determining how you want to paint and decorate your bedroom, consider that there are three main emotional colour breakdowns. First, there are COOL colours like blues and greens, which are known to create a relaxing and tension-easing effect on one’s mood. There are WARM colours like reds, yellows, and oranges, which promote a more invigorating and energetic effect. Finally, there are those colors that are a mixture of both cooling and warming elements, like purple.

In the following collection of bedroom photographs, notice how the painting and decorating colours may affect you.

Painting and Decorating your bedroom with cool colours

Tan, white and blue are calming cool colours. Brown is an earth tone that grounds you, while light blue is reminiscent of a sky, and opens up the space. White makes any room feel bigger, promoting a more positive outlook. Painting and decorating with cool colours can affect the emotion between partners, who retire to the bedroom for a place to relax and reconnect.

A soothing bedroom for your child

Pink is a nurturing colour, associated with maternal comforts. If you want to evoke calm reassurance in a little girl’s bedroom, it’s a perfect choice. Pink painting and decorating is not limited to just a child’s bedroom; use gentle, pink accents in the living room for an added soothing touch.

Paint the bedroom RED!

The darker the hue of any colour, the bolder the emotional effect is said to be. Red, when used in painting and decorating is known for its stimulatory affects, possibly even increasing adrenaline, and is often associated with passion. It’s definitely a strong choice for a bedroom, and may be ideal if you want your bedroom to be a place of energy and stimulation.

Painting and Decorating with a balance of Warm Colours

Warm colours provoke conversation and even a playful atmosphere, and are sometimes related to emotions of joyfulness. Incorporating many elements of warm colours (like the burnt orange blanket, red chair and carpeting and wooden furniture) into a white-walled bedroom creates an aesthetic balance of emotional elements.

Bathroom Installation – Bathroom Style Inspiration

Bathroom Installation

The bathroom is a function driven room in the home – you need a toilet, a sink and a bathtub or shower (or both). Obviously, that doesn’t mean aesthetics cannot play a big role in your bathroom installation. Your design will depend on the type of bathroom you are designing, whether it’s a spa bathroom, a simple guest bathroom or maybe a multimedia bathroom (replete with plasma TV’s and surround sound audio!).

If you are looking for fresh ideas to inspire your bathroom installation, we have some suggestions.

Contemporary Bathroom Installation

There are many kinds of accessories to choose from when designing your bathroom installation, from heated floors to whirlpool spa tubs to a steam room shower. This contemporary bathroom has a big, beautiful shower with plenty of room for a more spa-like experience. The earth tones multi-coloured tile evokes a calm and relaxing mood. In true contemporary style, this bathroom installation is a good example simple design and décor.

Get Playful with an Orange Bathroom

This bathroom is very spacious, with bright tiling and creative patterns. The wall separation allows for a ‘his and her’ joined bathroom that allows for privacy as well as open communication. Many busy couples use the time in the morning while they get ready to discuss matters, and so they prefer a bathroom where privacy doesn’t mean being separated.

Using Cool Colours for a Lovely Bathroom

The bathroom is generally a small space already crowded with beauty and hygiene products and bulky towels; therefore, getting creative with your installations for optimal space usage is key. By installing the sink and toilet straight into the storage cabinets, the minimal space is maximized, even allowing for a luxurious bathtub. The white furniture and sunlight from the window mixed with colour elements in the curtains and flowers make this bathroom installation feel simultaneously inviting and calming.

Inspiration for a Romantic Bathroom Installation

The rich composition of warm colours in their deepest hues, a classic claw foot soaking tub and a single yellow Renaissance-style chair give this bathroom an elegant appeal. The mood is luxurious without being decadent, as there are few amenities or accessories.

A bathroom Installation can be Bold and Blue-tiful

This futuristic bathroom feels almost space-aged with its shimmering tile wall-paneling, bright blue and white contrasting colour scheme and linear overhead lighting. The high ceilings and bold geometry of the shower are softened by a plush shag rug and large portable ottoman. Form and function (note the table for washing products in the shower) are married to create a dynamic bathroom.

Full Refurbishment of a Living Room

This little gallery of home refurbishment images can help give a little inspiration for your own living room refurbishment. Though lavish or expensive looking, much of the effect in these different refurbishments can be accomplished in a room of any size.

beije classic luxury living room

The “sunk” ceilings in the image above work wonders for a home with high ceilings. This style of ceiling is quite easily accomplished with false beams created from plasterboard (they are hollow). Spot lights in the ceiling are best used with dimmer switches and the contrast of the painting and decorating gives the room depth. Consider adding a bit of cherry wood panels like shown here to add some extra colour to the room and a large asian rug will make it feel cosy and warm.

Black and White living room

Thinking of a modern refurbishment? The trick in this is to create drastic contrast. Using black interior tiles (popular 1×1 metre tiles look best) and dark wood contrasted with a bright splash of paint. Contemporary refurbishment styles are easily achieved.

modern gray living room

This is another great example of a contemporary living room. As you can see the exposed brick was simply covered with a durable paint by the painters and decorators (so no peeling or chipping) and again, the floors are tiles. You can posh it up with some trendy looking furniture to give a great effect.

modern white living room

This living room refurbishment is a style we appreciate and is probably one of the most popular looks in London. The painters and decorators have gone with a single colour on the walls. If you notice the walls have blinds and bespoke blind boxes have been placed over the blind rollers so they are no longer and eyesore. Wood floors throughout make it feel fresh but warm.

yellow contemporary living room

This very Summery living room is quite standard. The floors would do best with underfloor heating (for cold periods) and you can see that the painters and decorators used a single white colour for the walls. Engineered wood flooring can be installed like this at low cost and the rest is up to you!
