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.
Advantages Of TV Stands. TV stands are very flexible since they can be placed anywhere in the room and can be moved from one location to another if you ever decide to re-arrange the furniture or redecorate. The majority of TV stands available feature several shelves or cupboards making them the ideal solution for housing all of your other home entertainment equipment such as DVD/ Blu-ray players and satellite boxes in one place.
Disadvantages Of TV Wall Mounts. You can only mount your TV in certain places. Modern LCD and plasma TVs are still fairly heavy so you need to make sure the wall is strong enough to support your TV. Never fasten your mount to plasterboard because it is too weak and your TV will soon come crashing to the floor; instead you should only secure the mount to solid brickwork or wall studs.
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.
Advantages Of TV Wall Mounts. Using a wall mount means you can finally get rid of that bulky TV stand that is currently sitting in the corner; they are a fantastic way to reclaim some of your valuable floor space. There are literally hundreds of different models available so you are sure to find one with the exact features that you require. TV wall mounts really do add a touch of cutting edge, contemporary style to any room and can instantly transform old fashioned or out dated decor.
Ambient lighting can be accomplished be placing small halogen bulbs at the back of the painting or decoration pieces housed in their cabinet sections. The textures chosen for this should be as follows. The wall should be painted with a very smooth finish emulsion, wallpapers should be avoided here, and the decoration pieces with their shelves should be dull and matted. They should not be shinny and glittery. Basically their security level should be kept in check.
Decorative shelf brackets are an often underrated element in eye-catching shelves. It’s all too easy to overlook them while concentrating on the shelf itself, or the shelf edging, but it would be a mistake to do so. Sometimes, instead of replacing old shelves all you need to breathe new life into them is to invest in decorative shelf brackets.
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.
