  • How to Improve Your Home’s Curb Appeal

    If you’re looking to sell your property any time soon, the exterior of your home can make a great difference in the way buyers feel about purchasing it.

  • Making the most of your utility room

    We’ll be the first ones to admit that it can be hard to get excited about the interior design of a utility room. A small room at the back of the house often used for nothing but storage, cleaning and household chores doesn’t get pulses racing! Those of us who are lucky enough to have that extra space can appreciate, from a functional perspective, the room’s main purpose; to keep the mess away from other areas of the house.

    It’s an easy decision to make when redecorating our homes to leave the utility room until last. It’s a place that guests rarely see, and we don’t enjoy spending time in there, so why invest any time and money in improving it as a space?

    Look at all of the functions your utility room provides you with and add up how many hours per week you spend in there. It can be quite a significant portion of our time. Why shouldn’t we apply our favourite colour schemes and spend time planning how to make the most of our often-neglected utility rooms?

  • Using Metallic Accents Inside Your Home

    Be inspired by the extremes

    Wherever you look, there is no escaping the current trend for metallic accents through the home. Favoured by professional interior designers but a simple enough trend to create yourself, metallic accents are becoming more popular and the movement is showing no signs of moving soon. In fact, the metallic trend is growing and becoming more dynamic, giving us even more choices in our homes and even creating sub-trends. The first styles that come to mind for most people when they think of metallic in interior design is the minimal and industrial styles that give a cool and quirky factory vibe, or in the complete opposite direction we have the ultimate glamour home, filled with plush textures, glitter, mirrors and metallic surfaces and features. Both are very bold options, but from both of these trends we can choose the flavours we like and don’t like, and use those ideas to create our own metallic-themed interior design scheme.

  • Making the most of your bathroom fittings

    Bathroom fittings are the whole range of smaller fixtures and fitments that make our bathrooms more functional and stylish. Often added to our homes after we’ve chosen and installed our bathroom suites, such as showers, sinks and toilets, we rely on bathroom fittings not only to be able to use our bathroom properly, but to make our bathrooms more comfortable and user-friendly. The biggest challenge is finding the best balance between bathroom fittings in a location and position that will maximise the user experience of our bathrooms, but will also look fantastic and complement our bathroom styles instead of looking like an afterthought or poorly thought out last minute addition.

  • Is it time to close the door on open plan living?

    Around a decade ago, open plan homes were all any interior designer could talk about. Home buyers became more interested in buying open plan homes and homeowners frequently refurbished their homes to make them more open, knocking down many walls in the process.

    Open plan living is no longer a new thing, but that doesn’t mean that it’s unfashionable or unpopular. It became a staple of interior architecture, and something that caused a shift in the past few years in homes across the world, in all kinds of sizes and budgets.

    But now that movement is changing again, and plenty of homeowners and designers are wondering if open plan is the lifestyle haven we had all imagined, or if closed plan is actually the way to go.

  • The Importance of Attention to Detail in Interior Design

    When we talk about attention to detail, in any type of industry, what we usually mean is the art of paying particular attention to the smaller details of a project. By not cutting any corners and taking the care to make sure an entire project is carried out successfully, with the dedication to maximise the potential of even the smallest features, a project will have a more professional and wonderful finish. When it comes to interior design, smaller features might not make the most impact but when all of those smaller features work together and immense care is taken at every level, that’s the perfect recipe for designing a home that is flawless and perfectly finished.

  • Make Your Entrance Stand Out

    houseexterior

    The first thing that any guest in your home or building will see is the front door. While we’re all notorious for claiming we’d never judge a book by its cover, it’s a fact of human psychology that people do rely on their first impressions to make judgements. It’s a survival mechanism that has evolved with us over the years, allowing our cave-dwelling ancestors to quickly assess the danger of any given situation. Continue reading
