We had the contractors start the parade – looking at the layout of the kitchen and the cabinet construction, the overall construction of the house and the kitchen in particular. The bids came in – slowly at first and then in a deluge. The prices were astounding. This was in the early 1980’s and the low bid was $12,000, and that was for a new sink, paint and “new cabinet facings” (new doors on the existing cabinets!) Now the house was not inexpensive, but these prices were out of sight! Times were much like today, many people out of work and contracts were few and far between.
In Interior Home decorations color and fabric are very important. When we say color, then it is not just wall colors. Select colors for fabrics, linen, pillows, curtains etc. complement it with the wall colors and give your room a vibrant look. The same concept applies to fabrics as well. Today there are so many different kinds of fabrics available. Select fabric that goes well with your room decor.
If your kitchen is a small space, the use of off-white and light colors works best. You can decorate the room with bright colors if you’d like to make the kitchen design space seem larger. Dark colors may make your kitchen appear smaller than it actually is. Avoid darkly colored tiles on your kitchen counters, as they can make it appear smaller also. You can decide to add mirrors in the kitchen to extend the space. A good place for mirrors is opposite from a window. This will not only make your Interior Kitchen design more open, it will reflect the light and make a brighter kitchen. Place some indoor plants in your kitchen, as they will provide a fresh feeling to the interior kitchen design.
The sink is another area to take into account with any Interior Bathroom. Today, we see many homes that feature a stand alone sink instead of a large vanity. While that opens up the bathroom, it also can bring in a problem with storage space. So, an interior designer will look for ways to design and incorporate shelf space that will be needed.
Although it’s hard to achieve the balance between minimal and essential items of furniture, it is important for creating your spacious home. Ask yourself ‘is this really necessary?’ use practical pieces of furniture, choose carefully and then you can enjoy what furniture you have knowing the use of them is being fully utilised. For example a coffee table in the middle of a room can take up unnecessary space. Having a nest of tables that fold away or neatly stack in with each other can be used as and when needed. Sofas that are low-lying make rooms appear bigger, as well as a sofa on legs because you can see the floor underneath, which gives the impression of space.
