Building Compact Bathrooms into Spacious Ones

Renovating RoomToday, we spend quite a handful amount of time in bathrooms, not because it is a place to bath and relieve, but now, bathrooms have been turned into our changing room, makeup room and a room fit to pamper and prim ourselves. I know there is something very striking about a bathroom full of beauty and hair products, that we can’t contain ourselves from jumping in and taking a long, rejuvenating bath, but what if your bath is creepy and a jumble? Have you considered giving it a makeover? If no, then keep eyeballing the tips I have mentioned below to create a capacious bathroom.

 

Air and Sun

You should not hide your windows with heavy curtains. Keep all windows bare as the natural sunlight coming in will warm your bath in cold weather and the natural light will spread glow to illuminate your washroom, giving the false impression of roominess, plus the air circulation will shun the bathroom from getting damp, smelly and stale.

 

The Basic Structure

If you are going to give your walls a fresh paint then please, use a light color palette as pastel shades devise a sizeable space. Make as much use of glass as you can because glass is thin, stylish and gives the impression of a generous restroom. A more intelligent decision would be to use tiles on walls than a coat of paint, especially the ones that are large, as this will shape your bathroom to give the impression of a substantial region. Don’t use wooden doors; venture for sliding glass doors for a minimalistic take on the bathroom.

Initiate time in forming a non-slippery, porous and clean floor. Don’t even think about wood or marble. In its place, opt for large tiles as they will really have a big involvement in making your lavatory look a lavish one.

 

Sanitary Fittings

Now comes the worthy sink, shower, bathtub and toilet. Invest in good sanitary that is lightweight, narrow, compact and can easily be fitted into corners, because if you will not make the best of the washroom corners, there are very less chances of creating a large bathroom. The look of the sanitary should be nominal, rounded and less bulky. Use sanitary products with (more…)

Tips to Design a Good Workable Library Room

A often used room such as the library is the primary area of your house as it symbolizes the cleanliness of your dwelling. If a library is smelly and dirty, your entire abode will reek of it, so it is very important to put money in library that needs a bit of more attention, more space and above all a good workable area. Like our kitchens where we prepare and serve meals, cut vegetables and wash dishes in the kitchen, so make sure to have it spotless at all times. This time we will ponder over some vital guidelines to craft out an effective library.

1. Design:
Choose on a strategy you would like to build and certify the place is large enough to accommodate a cooktop, a fridge and a sink. Everything should have room for working, cleaning, serving, storing and displaying.
2. Storage:
Try to take up use of every possible spot in the kitchen area. Invest in light weight, small yet spacious cupboards and long counter tops to stop the kitchen from looking muddled.
3. Lighting:
There should be an ample amount of illumination in your kitchen because nobody fancies cooking and baking without enough light. It depends on you whether you want to go for white or yellow lights, but the mix of both can do wonders and the lights can be switched on according to a particular meeting or depending on your mood.
4. Electrical Problems:
Always look for plumbers and electricians to sort out your electricity problems. For example, have enough plugs in the kitchen for the running of appliances. Sometimes, you come upon a quarter where you want to cook but unfortunately that area does not have a switchboard to assist the functioning of an electrical product. Keep check that every imperative electric item is operating.
5. Working Slab:
I personally love kitchens with granite tops, shiny chrome gadgets and stainless steel looking appearance, but not everyone has the budget to splurge on such a luxury. Assemble a working slab that is easy to clean and doesn’t contain the frustrating lines that greases them black very quickly.
6. Floor:
We all love maple colored wooden floors, don’t we? But such kind of floors can easily get filthy, scratchy and slippery. Spend money on floors that are (more…)
