Mirrors have the honorable addition of being able to reproduce what it reflects, therefore if you happen to have a very tiny piece of toilet and a sink side by side, we suggest you to place and long horizontal piece of glass just above these pieces, in order to get the best of visual tricks. Mirrors are not also a good way of enhancing your bathroom area but also are a nice functional addition.

Let´s begin with sizes, when it comes about bathroom, the proportions are a vital, and it highly influences decoration and can increase or reduce your bathroom physical areas.
According to some interior design companies, in order to get the best of space inside a house, flooring tiles and wall bathroom tiles should match. This addition can help you with harmony creation and in the case you need a visual but also spacious home area, continuity is vital and an important element. Therefore, we suggest you to get tiles that go with minimal contrast, lighter colors like BLANCO from our brand KRONENHAHN, line CASONA.
Opt for going with ¨less is more¨, when it comes about small sized bathrooms. Regarding the bathroom, aesthetics is the reflection of what your daily life can be and when there is less you gain in space.

You start.We Finish!
To me, kitchens are those special rooms in the house where people create simple or very elaborated meals that nutritiously fuels the bodies, minds and souls of love ones and friends all over the world; so if life is created in the bedroom, then it is definitely lived in the kitchen. With all the technology improvements we are experiencing these days, it is very easy to provide homeowners with constant stream of inspiration that encourages them to plan a refreshment or a total re-do of their kitchens. Since the most important room of any home is constantly evolving regarding designs and trends, incorporating trendy updates has become an essential improvement project, which will bring your kitchen into its best 21st century version.
Today it is important to understand that even though kitchens were not always where families congregated for breakfast or a light meal, over the course of the past 20 years these rooms started to become living spaces, where people spend more time than just cooking and therefore it is highly worthy to strive to create a kitchen that looks its best. The following are my favorite ways to add updated style to your kitchen this year; I believe this post is just in time for you to include it in your 2017 list’s resolutions.
Open Shelving Has Come To Stay
Take your kitchen style further with the latest trend many homeowners are following. Separating the kitchen and the dining room is getting obsolete; instead you can skip your kitchen islands entirely and bring elements of the living and dining rooms into this magnificent area. Open shelving kitchens have the amazing ability to showcase beautiful dishes, drink ware, serving pieces and of course those new pieces such as living room furniture that would definitely make from your kitchen a very livable space where family and guest can hang out and not just cook.
Avoid the Standard Kitchen Hardware Design
Remember that your kitchen’s hardware is just like the jewelry for this important area of your home, fortunately in 2017 there are incredible options out there to pick than ever before. Do not stick on nickel brass bar pulls from the big box store, it is time to be bold and choose something else, something special and detailed on hardware, some of the most common choices are: hammered finishes or leather trim. And for your sink design, there is a marvelous alternative; imagine an extra sink that will banish daily complains from family and guests about not having enough counter space. Double sinks mean two people pleasantly cooking or doing the dishes, this is probably the ideal pick for families who like to cook together.
#thowbacktuesday Every Single Day
Retro appliances style is back and I particularly love the idea. We all know that stainless steel appliances have been the focal point in kitchens for so many years and there is not something quite appealing than industrial homes kitchens. However rounded edges fridges which are now taller and have a skinnier appearance are superb, clean, cool and modern because they harmoniously blend in retro style and functionality, white kitchen with this type of appliances will look just great!
Wide-ranging Hardware Finishes
Monochromatic kitchen style may look amazing but in 2017 you can opt for not going with this kitchen style, instead strive to choose appliances and accessories with different finishes for instance, bronze accents in your kitchen are getting special attention whether if you place them in minor details or let them play a starring role in your kitchen. This color make your appliances pop up, consider vases trays, drawer pulls and light fixtures, all of them set up by bronze accents, your kitchen will turn into a truly one-of-a-kind space.
Sometimes homeowners consider granite as a fussy and pricey option for their kitchens, so why don’t opt for concrete or engineered countertops? Concrete countertops are totally taking over this year, not to mention that is not so expensive, durable and cool. Going to the other extreme, you can also choose engineered countertops as they are nonporous, yet still offers that amazing look and feel of natural stone.
Two Tones in your Kitchen Cabinets
If you are a homeowner who finds it difficult to pick only one color for your cabinets, then let me tell you this year things are changing as you can mix up your kitchen’s palette. Whether you love the classic black and white layered look in your kitchen, or you would like to use any other complementary colors for your upper and lower cabinetry such as navy blue, soft gray, you will absolutely create an interesting contrast.
Kitchens are the heart of the homes, and I like to believe it is true. Moreover, much of the importance of this functional room depends on the family and their lifestyle; newer kitchen designs has begun now to open up to other rooms and as a result, homeowners started to enlarge their own kitchen spaces to follow this great trend in order to enjoy of both lifestyle and resale purposes.
Whether you own a small or a large kitchen, it is key for you to know that today’s kitchen is way more than a kitchen, and therefore functionality is as important as the often upgrades you can give to it; this room is ever evolving based on each family’s busy and varied lifestyle. In addition, kitchen appliances are constantly changing and this is why you need to keep yourself updated with the new products, concepts and designs that emerge into the home marketplace every year.

Living rooms are perhaps the most used spaces in any home, in this area you and your family spend quality time whether in front of the television or simply having a fruitful conversation with each other. Your living room is also where you receive your loved ones and guests in order to catch up with them. Planning the design of this significant area of your home should be then of prime importance; your family needs to contribute with their ideas of how their living will look and you can play the role of an interior designer, remember that the way your living looks will depend essentially on the type of furniture that you want to place in this room of the house.
Before to start visiting any showroom or purchasing your furnishings, you should visualize your living and ask yourself a couple of questions like what kind of mood do you want to have in your living room? What furniture material best suits your living room’s needs? Or who is going to use the living room? Once you are aware of these answers, the designing project gets easier to execute; furniture spacing and layout is key to achieve both comfort and function. Buying the sofa you will place in the living is therefore a big decision since this is a central spot in any household. With all those amazing options in the furniture market, there are plenty of comfortable and stylish sofas; today I would like to share with you some dos and don’ts you may want to keep in mind before taking your final decision on your next sofa, a choice that also represents a large investment of income.
Do’s When Buying a Sofa
Strive to always have a clear sofa goal in mind: this way you analyze what is the goal you will achieve with such an important decorating piece. There are so many different types of sofas out there in the home market, they absolutely can address specific requirements for your day to day life, but it will be really helpful to think carefully what will be the use you will give to the sofa. Requirements are as varied as people’s needs; there are couches which are deep and very soft, this is a different address if you are looking for a firm sofa with tight back that offers you the possibility to help you maintain a correct posture.
Make sure to check the hood: to study the sofa’s poor or well construction as well as the materials is made of. Run one of your hands over the back of the sofa, and find out if it is poor quality; in case you feel it has a hollow back, then this is a clear indication of a poor construction, because good sofas are generally well padded back so the perform a long lifespan.
Measure your doorways: as insignificant as may sound, this should be the first thing you need to do; by measuring the sofa dimension you make sure that will get through the doorways, around the corners and up the stairs at your house or apartment. Measure the entrances of your house, and the possible doorways. Once you are at the store, measure the width, depth and height of that dreamy sofa you would like to take home.
Strive to keep learning about sofas, even when you already purchase yours: aspects like covering your sofa for protection purposes with an appropriate fabric, because you have kids and pets at home are necessary to know since with that knowledge you ease your life as you keep a clean sofa that is protected from spills and dirt. Be also aware of the fact that sofas come in a wide variety of styles and sizes (curvy, round, straight), will help you make your smarter choices.
Don’ts When Buying a Sofa
Avoid the idea of buying a sofa only because is cheap: remember that the better is the quality of the sofa you have decided to invest in, the longer you will enjoy its lifespan. If you ask me, I rather invest in a good sofa built with great materials than a couch that costs less but will lead me to replace it a few months after I purchased. An average quality sofa easily lasts as long as 10 years, while a top quality- end sofa will go over two decades.
Do not forget that proportion counts: this happens especially with a sectional or an L- shape sofa, which can often overwhelm the living room. On a sectional, try to do a tight back instead of loose cushions; this will help keep the overall profile from becoming overwhelming, you can keep the back objectively low (32”), and in this way you are making the sectional feel a little less daunting.
Do not always opt for neutral stylish look: since the other elements in the room can offer color cues, in order to establish calm, choose a sofa with a upholstery that is solid and is the same color as the walls and curtains.
As I mentioned earlier, choosing a sofa is a crucial decision since this piece of furniture will be placed at the main showcase of your house. In terms of finances, purchasing a sofa requires quite an amount of money, however if you strive to find a top quality one, be sure that it will stay in the house for long years before you need to replace it. As you can read it is very important for you to plan well what type of sofa to place in the living room before buying it, these dos and don’ts definitely can help you to avoid living with a bad choice for years to come. I would like to invite you to visit our website, where you can choose among all of our affordable and beautiful sofas line.
