In a small bathroom, less is always more. If you include a vanity, you will probably need to choose a very small unit. Depending on your needs, you can choose the style (cabinet or drawers or a combination) that is most suited to your needs. Recessed medicine cabinets (set into the wall, with an unframed mirror) are ideal in small bathrooms.
Bedroom wall decoration is an artistic concept for which you must understand the concepts of diffuse coloring, secularity, glossiness and the effects that various colors bring about into the environment in relation to space. Different textures give a different feel to the surfaces of materials and choosing a good texture could make the difference between a shaded mated look and an unruly lackluster look. In addition to this, one final concept has to be touched upon that is lighting. All these concepts are explained briefly and will give the reader an idea of what materials, colors and textures to choose.
Some people like the idea of dividing even a small vanity with cabinet on one side and drawers on the other. Larger items can be stored in the cabinet and small items can be organized in the drawers. If you have small children, you can also place locks on the drawers used to store potentially dangerous items and cleaning substances.
Disadvantages Of TV Stands. TV stands can be quite bulky and often dominate the room when floor space is at a premium. When using a stand, you often have to arrange the furniture based on the available space left over, rather than on the optimal viewing position. Unless you are lucky enough to have a dedicated home theatre room that is off limits to kids and pets, your TV and other equipment is likely to be at risk from being knocked over. Stands can be quite fragile and it only takes a small bump in order to tip them over and send thousands of dollars worth of equipment crashing to the floor.
You can even go to another level and create brackets that match the theme of the room. For example, try glued-together kitchen utensils for an eye-grabbing set of brackets in the kitchen. Or how about gluing old video cassettes to a thin metal bracket for a shelf next to the TV? You can also take cheap brackets and decorate them. Try attaching CDs onto brackets for a striking stereo shelf or sticking ribbons and bows on a plain shelf bracket in a little girl’s room? The sky’s the limit. Go wild with some decorative shelf brackets.
Traditional Furniture Styles. Instead of focusing on ornately decorated furniture, choose simpler pieces that will beautifully blend your modern apartment and traditional decorating style. Combine clean lines with opulent fabrics to incorporate the best of both decorating worlds. Choosing smaller pieces will also help keep your apartment looking sleek and spacious. Accessorizing a sofa or loveseat with a few throw pillows or a comfortable throw is also a great way of combining comfort and style. Dark colored wood can help add a traditional look. However, by choosing pieces that feature simple lines instead of carved detailing, you’ll also add a sleek and stylish look.
No matter what kind of wall art you choose to hang in your home. Be sure to get one that you enjoy looking at. Before purchasing wall decor, make sure that that the size is ideal for your wall space. Take note of colors around the room and get artwork that contains some of those colors. Avoid hanging artwork with the same color as your wall to make the artwork stand out.
Size is important too. It’s important for the bracket to properly support the shelf that it’s holding up. A common mistake is to buy brackets that are either to big or too small for the shelves. If they’re too big then they’ll stick out, and if they’re too small then the shelf could be unstable and dangerous. The projection of the bracket (the part that sticks out from the wall and holds the shelf) should extend to within an inch of the outer edge of the shelf.
Bridging the Design Gap. If you think that a modern living room can’t be decorated in a traditional style, think again. In fact, adding traditional touches can add a sense of warmth and charm that is often missing in many contemporary styles. Although you might not want to decorate in a strictly traditional style, there are certainly ways of blending sleek sophistication with traditional charm and grace. For example, you can bridge the design gap by choosing traditional furniture styles in cool colors such as gray, blue and sage, which will work wonderfully with the room’s modern architectural features.
Or, use the rich warm color palette that is so common in traditional decorating styles, such as burgundy, gold and deep green, combined with modern touches such as stylized metal wall art. Hang traditional oil paintings in sleek metal frames to seamlessly combine the two decorating styles. Preserve the beauty of your city skyline view by using window toppers in rich shades. Art Deco pieces are also quite useful for combining traditional and modern decorating styles. By combining traditional and contemporary styles, you can create a comfortable and attractive eclectic look that will be uniquely your own.
