master bedroom

A master bedroom is your personal space. It is only natural to make sure that it has all the elements that signify your personal style and makes you feel at home. While your guests may never really see your bedroom, you may still want to maintain a classy decor so your bedroom looks appealing and invigorating. Here are our top tips to make it happen.

A patio decor

If you are the lucky few who has a beautiful balcony overlooking a breathtaking view from your master bedroom, you have truly ample scope for beautifying your bedroom space. Consider using a few potted plants (natural are better but artificial work too) or artificial flower vases to enhance the look and feel of your space. Consider buying wooden patio chairs and a table to elevate the overall appeal of your bedroom.

Refreshing your linens

Refreshing your linens can make a great difference to the overall look of your master bedroom. If your bedroom decor is minimalistic, you can opt for floral prints or geometric designs to make it look a tad more colourful. Of your decor already has quite a few decorative pieces, sticking to some basic solid hues will balance out the overall appeal without letting matters go overboard.

You can also try to triple sheet by layering a thin blanket or comforter between two starched sheets. This not only creates a bed that feels crisp but also makes it look more royalty without much effort.

Flooring and wall

Often in an attempt to use their favourite colours for the bedroom, people opt for colours that essentially do not give a relaxing vibe. When choosing the flooring for your bedroom, consider the best tile store in Vancouver for many options. Invest in a good quality carpet to complete the look. When you want to create a relaxed atmosphere, the bedroom wall colour is an absolutely essential consideration. Make sure to use subtle hues. You can have a panel or just one distinct portion coloured a bit darker to create an interesting contrast, but generally stick to solids. Also, we do not recommend too many contrasts, especially if your bedroom is smaller in size.

Little things

Little luxuries like a side table with an appealing lamp, a little bedside picture of your loved one or even a small bouquet of artificial flowers goes a long way to make your bedroom look classy and elegant. Make sure to use smaller pieces or just one big element. Try to match the decoration to the colour scheme rather than opting for totally out of place decors. Avoid putting too many things on your nightstand as they may clutter the space a bit too much.

Mirrors and paintings

Nothing adds an illusion of space more than a giant mirror. Did you know that simply placing a couple of mirrors makes your room look stylish and bigger? You can opt for some colourful motifs or metallic designs around the mirror to create an artistic appeal. Alternatively, you can opt for a classy and colourful painting to elevate the appeal and look of your bedroom. Make sure to again match the colours to the overall decor.

Doing a kitchen renovation with a tight budget can be difficult but it’s not impossible. While not all renovations are the same, there are common methods you can apply that will help you be prepared and stay on track.

Be Realistic

It’s important not to set your budget too low, especially if you haven’t researched the costs of renovation materials, labour and more. Doing this will only limit what you can do, while also guaranteeing you’ll go over budget at some point. Avoid saving money by cutting corners, as it will cost you more in the future depending on the damage it could cause to surrounding areas or fail entirely due to the poor quality. Evaluate everything you want to do in your kitchen remodel, how much it will truly cost to be done right, and either accept the price upfront or wait a few months and save up.

Be Specific

In order to stay on budget while renovating your kitchen, you need to know exactly what you want to be done, the materials you want to be installed and the timeline in which you want everything completed. This is one of the best ways to properly stick to your budget, as you’ll know what you’re paying for at the beginning and can properly estimate the final numbers. Do this before hiring a contractor so the estimate they give you will be as accurate as possible.

Don’t Stray from the Design

Your budget is likely to get out of hand if you constantly change your mind about what you want. It’s tempting to add fancier hardware or more cabinet space once the renovation is underway, but those unexpected costs will add up over time, increasing your budget. It’s unlikely that you’ll know the new final cost that includes your last-minute additions until you get the bill at the end of the job.

Have a Contingency Plan

Nine times out of ten, a kitchen renovation isn’t going to go exactly as planned. Unforeseen issues like old, damaged plumbing or rotten subfloors can add unexpected expenses to your budget. Be prepared for this by setting money aside to deal with these potential problems. It’s best to add 15 to 20% to your job estimate, as you’re less likely to have to sacrifice a design element when you already have an emergency fund on hand.

Simple Ways for a Quick Remodel

New Paint Job

Sometimes the best way to freshen up your kitchen it with a new coat of paint. This is an inexpensive way of changing up the look of the room without spending too much. You can paint the walls and cabinets to give your kitchen a brand new look.

New Lighting

Installing new light fixtures will change the atmosphere of the room, making it seem more modern or cozy depending on the light itself.

Reorganizing

Changing up your kitchen’s organization features can help to both improve functionality and appeal. Installing new shelving or racks creates the best of both worlds when updating your space.

The Finer Details

Sometimes a kitchen just needs small hints or decor here and there to change it up. This could be anything, from switching out the cabinet hardware to adding plants or a small herb garden.

vintage bathroom

“Old is gold” is a popular saying. Nowhere does this hold more true than in bathroom designs. Tradition is the trend these days. Classic designs are the modern fixation. See how you can create the timeless vintage look to give your bathroom a unique character and improve the value of your home.
What is the Timeless Vintage Look?
While many homeowners love the charm of an old home, most turn up their noses at an outdated bathroom. A timeless vintage look is in fixtures and fittings that stand the test of time.

Your bathroom is an oasis of relaxation. Streamline the design with fixtures that are modern but carry the vintage look so they last long. A word of advice: when you change the look of your bathroom to a classic or vintage style, keep things aesthetic by sticking to simplicity or dramatic accents in an elegant setting.

 

Timeless Tiles
Vintage need not be ornate or expensive. While matte floor tiles are contemporary, lustrous tiles give a classic and expensive look but are cost-effective. Check out natural stone flooring such as marble or patterned tiles. Wood veneers and simple colours, fabrics, materials and elements look good for many years.

Classic Colours
Bathroom colours are best in simple white or neutral shades. Slip resistant large format white tiles look clean and gather less grout. Toilets, tubs and sinks look fresh in white. Soft neutral shades such as beige, cream, cool cucumber green, refreshing turquoise blue or sunny yellow look stunning too. For a bolder, more dramatic vintage look, you may want to consider rich mahogany or dark wood panelling.

Majestic Materials
You can’t go wrong with classic materials such as marble, stone and ceramics that combine a luxurious look with a long-lasting finish. They keep the bathroom cool in summers and warm in the winters. Wood is never out of fashion. It creates a warm, cozy feel, offering total relaxation. Wood also resists high humidity so you can use it in vanities, cabinets or storage shelves.
Distressed wood, stained or whitewashed wood are trendy accessories in bathroom fashion that bring out the old world look.

Old World Style Fixtures
Consider exposed pipes, shower-head and a dramatic brass shower curtain rod. Avoid gold foil and velvet wallpaper because those don’t stand the test of time. A simple design is more durable.

Pedestal Sink
A traditional pedestal sink can instantly change the look of your bathroom from conventional to classic. It creates more space too. An Edwardian-style faucet or tortoiseshell accents on a stunning black countertop can create the look. Install a freestanding clawfoot bathtub to complement pedestal sink.

Painted Wood Cabinets
Wood cabinets in oak or pine can make a bathroom look classic. Painted wood has its own charm too. It is not easy to resurface wood veneer but paint colour and finishes can be easily changed.

Chrome Hardware
Shiny chrome or classic matte brass metalware seldom appear out of style. They are also durable. Consider stainless steel, nickel, silver, bronze, brass, copper or chrome for faucets, showers and bathroom accessories.
