Metals, cane or rattan, and plastics have their place, particularly for outdoor and patio furniture. However, none of these has the look of high quality solid wood furniture. For accent pieces, yes, metals and even ceramics and glass can look great. A smoked glass top on a coffee table can be very attractive in the correct setting, but for a main dining table you cannot beat solid wood.
Kitchen sinks and faucets have come a long way since the days of the single rectangle bowl with standard faucets and knobs. Today`s kitchens are not just about function; they are also about beauty and design. Depending on your specific needs and style preferences, there are hundreds of models to choose from.
Small pendants, like mini globes, are great alternatives to installing track lighting. Their lighting is bright but less intense all around, so it is perfect for task lighting in a kitchen or other work area. Hanging small pendants in multiples allows for sufficient lighting. Make sure to hang them above eye level to prevent glare.
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.
Roll-up - Using roll-up shades is a great choice in providing shade to the garden areas which receive intense amount of sunlight during the day. These shades look quite similar to the awnings, but they can get retracted when not in use. They are handy, and are available both in manual and motorized designs.
There are various kinds of bathroom lighting fixtures. Bar lights house tiny trochees mounted on metal bars, of various designs and shape. These bars are fixed to the walls or counters. They provide for either up lighting (to allow light to gush down on mirror cabinets) or down lighting (to bounce light off the ceiling).
Clear glass pendants will naturally diffuse light more effectively in all direction. This makes them perfect for spaces like the kitchen and bathroom. Metals with shiny finishes, such as polished chrome and brushed nickel, can also help reflect light.
