One of the best pieces of storage furniture for use in living rooms and dens, is the entertainment center or armoire that is used not only for housing a flat panel tv and other digital accessories, but also for storing books, personal items or a computer. You can select a massive storage unit that can fit across an entire wall of the living room for exceptional storage. Smaller units also provide great storage. Many of these products hold their value over time as well and can be passed down to the next generation as an heirloom.
Most of us own a bedroom that we would ideally like to be bigger and whilst knocking down walls to make a room literally bigger might not be realistic, there are certain design `tricks` we can utilise to make a bedroom appear bigger. Eliminating the clutter in a bedroom will help create more space, likewise so would positioning dual-functioning items of furniture in the room, such as a sofa bed. Using two different types of flooring can also make a room appear to be deceptively bigger. Tricks like placing a rug on one side of the floor and leaving the other side exposed can generate the feeling of more space. Light has also played a pivotal role in the perceived size of a room and in a small room try to flood as much light as possible into the room to make it appear to be larger. Decorating the ceiling can be another good way to divert the eye from the smallness and bring another dimension to a bedroom.
Long gone are the days of trying to illuminate your home`s exterior with a single post or wall light. With the resurging popularity of the "outdoor room," strategically placed and chosen exterior light fixtures are critical to your home`s perceived value and overall look. Installing exterior light fixtures for a "layered" illumination and choosing ones that complement your home are among the most important curb appeal factors.
A pendant light is also known as a drop or suspender. It is a lone light fixture that hangs from the ceiling, suspended by a cord, chain, or metal rod. Used by themselves, pendant lights present a striking feature to a room. More often they are hung in multiples in a straight line over countertops, dining tables, or bathrooms. They can also be hung in a group at varying heights to create an artistic lighting look in the corner of a room. Modern pendants are energy saving low voltage models using halogen, LED, or fluorescent bulbs. They come in a huge variety of sizes and vary in materials. They can be metal, cloth, glass, or plastic.
Ideally, the light should be directed at the person and not reflected off the mirror. This can be achieved by positioning the two lighting fixtures in opposite directions so that light is reflected on the face from both sides. Lighting fixtures can also be placed on the wall directly over the sink, at a distance of at least 2 feet from the sink.
Carpets can acquire dirt, and become stained, rather easily. In high traffic places such as schools, universities, hotels, nursing homes and shops it is important to keep this type of flooring looking clean, otherwise your flooring will rub off negatively on your organisation.
Awning - Awnings are more permanent fittings. Awnings are mainly made of a metal frame. You can attach them to the house over the windows or large patios. The fabric used in making an awning is generally a canvas. The canvas gets slipped over the frame before getting sealed. Awnings are a great option for people who want to have an indoor feeling outside the house. They are also useful in shading the windows, and thus keeping the house cooler without wasting electricity.
