Lounge Furniture

Posted on 2nd June by admin with Comments Off

While shopping for furniture for your new home, the first item that you would like to cross off the list would be the living room furniture. True these should definitely be on the topmost in the list and it gives you immense psychological satisfaction once you have crossed the hurdle of getting the living room furniture. Now if you are one of those people who would just love to lounge in the living room, then you should look into some kind of innovatively designed furniture for this express purpose instead of the formal sofa set, coffee table or center table and side tables.

Many of us certainly do prefer to lounge in our living rooms, for after all this is the place in our homes apart from our bedrooms that allows us to sit back and relax and enjoy a tete-a-tete with the family. Maybe you would like to just sit back and relax and watch you favorite TV program or even enjoy curling up in you favorite lounge chair in the living room with a book. This means you have to choose your furniture that allows you to do just that. Formal sofa sets would serve the purpose if you entertain a lot and have many visitors, but a lazy boy, a comfortable reclining sofa or a barcalounger would be the ideal sitting furniture for your own comfort.

If your living room is large enough, you can choose a mixture of both – formal seating and seating that allows you to lounge in comfort. Most lounge furniture is ideally suited for living rooms rather than bedrooms.

Take a look at this wonderfully designed lounge furniture. This design is an award winning one which is both artistic and an ideal functional piece that is very comfortable. With its lovely flowing lines and cutting edge design, you can do a lot more than merely sit. You can recline on it comfortably or even lie down on it. With its adjustable back rests adding to the comfort quotient this is certainly one of the best picks when it comes to lounge furniture.

Space-saving home office

Posted on 28th May by admin with Comments Off

If you’re low on space but need a home office, there are several ways to make it fit into your home without sacrificing style. Space is the primary issue for most home offices. Often, a home office needs to be multifunctional. Whether your home office doubles as a guestroom, craft room or even a family room, you need furniture that’s versatile and functional. Additionally, your office furniture should never make you feel cramped. Remember, the more practical and efficient your workspace, the more practical and efficient your work habits will be.
You can create a hidden home office with a few simple tricks and a bit of creativity.

For starters, the desk. This is often the largest part of a home office, which is great if you’ve got room to spare. But for those of us who need to save space, a large executive desk is a pain. So how do you fit the desk into a small home office?

You can try affixing a board with two fold out legs to your wall. Using hinges, you will be able to fold up the desk when not in use to give the appearance of more space.

Or, you can use a small student desk on wheels. This will allow you to push it against the wall when you’re not using it, and pull it out in front of a window when you need to work.

Painting your office white will also give the illusion of space. White reflects light, so light from a window or lamp will seem all the brighter and fill the room.

And instead of buying that bulky, thick shelving unit, you might want to consider affixing shelves to the wall. This way you can go floor to ceiling – increasing your storage capacity, always a good thing in a small space – and you won’t have an overly large back or side to deal with, only the shelves.

Exotic Cupboard Called Magistral Cabinet is another extravagant work by famous artist and designer-experimenter Sebastian Errazuriz. The surface of capacious vertical cabinet placed on itself more than 80 000 bamboo sticks which form looks like a pencil.

Making a studio apartment modern

Posted on 12th May by admin with Comments Off

Just because you have a small space does not mean that you cannot create a completely modern home that you are proud to show off. Sometimes, having a smaller area to work with is actually easier to decorate because you don’t have to be worried about the design of one room flowing to the next!

Welcome the Sun – Natural lighting will amplify the size of your room. Heavy curtains should be avoided at all costs in small spaces.

Flexible Furniture – While you want to be able to entertain your guests at a full-size table, this will only take up a lot of space when not in use. Using a drop leaf table is the perfect solution. Also, don’t underestimate seating cubes or footstools that provide a modern appeal and can double as a coffee table or an extra chair when needed.

Shelving – Small spaces can really benefit from shelving, not just for aesthetic purposes but for storage as well. Use decorative boxes that accent your decor to hide things you have no room for.

Minimal Furniture – That overstuffed sectional may look fantastic on the showroom floor but it will dwarf your room size. Keep furniture minimal with nice clean lines.

Don’t Forget Rugs – For whatever reason, many people feel that need a large space to lay down rugs. This is not true! You can even lay contrasting rugs over one another to give your studio apartment an ultra chic look that will leave your guests wondering if you hired a professional to design your interior.

Whether this is your first apartment or if you are simply downsizing, get comfortable in your space! You will find you may love the smaller area more than you ever imagined with the right accents.

Choosing the right kitchen island

Posted on 6th May by admin with Comments Off

During new construction or a remodel, the kitchen is one room that can greatly benefit from the latest products and features. Energy-efficient appliances, sleek new cabinets that automatically close, and a kitchen island are a few of the most desired features. Adding an island to your kitchen is the most effective way to give the space a facelift without actually performing surgery on the entire room. Not only are they aesthetically-pleasing, they are actually meant to make your time in the kitchen more enjoyable and productive. Choosing the right placement, shape and style will ensure that you get the most use out of your kitchen island.

Size – The island should be appropriately scaled to the size of the kitchen. One that is too big will result in an area that’s just too crammed but a tiny island in an enormous room will appear misplaced.

Placement – You should be able to move around your island and flow from the stations in the room that you use the most. If you’re using your island to prep dinner, there should be a clear path to the stove.

Storage – Do you need extra storage? If so then your kitchen island should have cupboards and drawers to make use of this valuable space.

Seating – Have a large family or do a lot of entertaining? Choose an island that will be comfortable to set tall seating around for additional place settings.

Islands are really just an extension of your personality. Choose one that fits your needs and that will compliment your space and you may find yourself spending a lot more time in the kitchen!
