Ten Tips to More Successful Decorating

ADVERTISEMENTS
1. Hang pictures at eye level. People frequently make the mistake of hanging photos too high. Hanging them at eye level for the average person's height will enable them to be enjoyed and also make them work better with the furnishings, such as sofas and chairs.

2. Use accessories in odd-numbered groups. It's just a matter of balance. Odd numbers - such as three or five - work better than even-numbered groupings of four or six.

3. Use wallcovering borders. Borders define your lifestyle. They not only are decorative, but frequently they can be a reflection of your interest. There are novelty borders that depict gardening scenes, sports activities - such as golfing or fishing - or well-loved children's characters, such as Winnie the Pooh or Peter Rabbit. Use borders creatively around doors or windows, at ceiling or chair-rail heights to give personality to your room.

4. Decorate for your lifestyle. If you move frequently, you may want to choose neutral furnishings that can go with any decor. Or buy area rugs and extra fabrics that you can take to your new home. If you have young children and pets, choose easy-to-clean carpets and colors that camouflage dirt and scuff marks.

5. Use paint to minimize home's defects and accentuate positive features. For instance, use light colors to make a room look bigger. Or dark colors to make a room look more cozy and intimate. You can accent a room's feature - such as a pipe or post - by painting it a different color from the rest of the room, or de-emphasize it by painting it the same color.

6. Use wallcovering suited to your home. Choose lightly-colored textures and small prints for a smaller room; opt for larger prints and darker backgrounds for a larger room. Use stripes to give a room the illusion of height. Use wallcoverings to tie rooms together. For instance, a living room and adjoining dining room can be done in the same or similar patterns to give a sense of cohesiveness.

7. Look for coordinating products. Many of today's wallcovering sample books feature a whole gamut of coordinating home fashion products, such as borders, fabrics, comforters, pillow shams, place mats, table rounds, and shower curtains. By selecting a specific collection that features these products, you can put together a whole cohesive decorating package for a relatively low cost.

8. Have a focal point. Your focal point can be virtually anything - a fireplace, a painting, an entertainment center. By having a focal point, you can decorate to accentuate the focal point and give your room a sense of cohesion.

9. Collect photos of rooms you love. If you're not sure how to define your decorating style, start collecting photos from decorating magazines. Look at the photos to determine what is the same about them - same colors, same styles, same types of furnishings. Once you've determined that, you can pretty well draw some conclusions about what styles are right for you.

10. Work from a total plan. When decorating your home, don't just go piecemeal from room to room. Work up a plan for the entire home, including budget and timetable. As you go along, you can be on the lookout for products that work within your plan. Your neighborhood decorating center will be glad to help you devise this plan and work at making it become a reality.

People have transformed nature into gardens for thousands of years. On behalf of gardening, they modify flowers and force the crossing of plants to create hybrids that would never exist. Japanese gardens, however, are different from Western gardens are full of common flowers and plants. Unlike the elaborate gardens of tulips of Keukenhof, Holland, or the meticulous Rose Garden from the White House, Japanese gardens tend to leave more to the imagination and represent nature as it is. They value to those branches of trees twisted and deformed and not bother with irregular stones.

A Beautiful Southern Belle and Picture

ADVERTISEMENTS

Southern house plans wouldn't be southern if they didn't display the generous hospitality known for the region. House plan number SU-5669-2538-1607-I has a long name and a longer list of outstanding features. Without question, this southern belle has a sense of hospitality to the owner and visitors alike.

The stunning and refined look of the exterior is easy on the eyes and very inviting. The style gives an Italian villa on a horse ranch kind of feel. Upon entering, you are greeted with a large two story foyer with formal rooms at either side. The great room is beyond and is open to the large kitchen. A guest room with a private full bathroom ensures that friends and family are welcome.

The main floor also enjoys one more feature that is uncommon to most houses even twice this size; a full, attached guest house. This addition is perfect as an in-law suite, a rental, twenty-somethings, and frequent guests. While guest houses are nothing new, many building codes restrict them as they're often a second building. With this one integrated into the house, such regulations should not apply.

The upper floor houses five more bedrooms, including the master suite. Additional niceties include a rather large utility room, and a recreation room perfect for the little ones or a home theater. The luxurious master suite enjoys a fireplace, a private covered porch, and a large master bath and closet. The bathroom has direct access to the laundry room to save time and effort.

This unique member of our Southern house plans offers a rare luxury with its combination of fantastic features. You and your guests will feel at home in this beautiful southern belle.

Five Trends to Watch for in Custom Kitchen Design

Five Trends to Watch for in Custom Kitchen Design
By: J. Mahoney

From so many sources we have been hit by all the latest in trends for the kitchen. On one thing do most kitchen design professionals agree: kitchens will continue to be larger, more open, and definitely the most important room in the home. The custom kitchen of today should create a space that is open for people to gather.

The perfect custom kitchen design can be suited to your every dream and needs of you and your family, and also to be able to fit the boundaries of your budget.

Below are 5 custom kitchen trends to be aware of when your are planning for your custom kitchen remodeling project.

1. Hardwood Mouldings to Create a Custom Look
Adding hardwood mouldings to kitchen cabinets can provide a richness not found in other features. Mouldings are available in oak, cherry, and maple. They can provide your cabinets with such details as fluted columns, valances, cornices, galley rails and open shelves. These can help to combine function and beauty to your kitchen. Mouldings can also provide a custom look to stock cabinets. Examples of the uses of mouldings on cabinetry include: installation around corners and along the face of cabinetry to minimize the square look of cabinet, using in soffit areas, and installing on top of cabinets to add a crown moulding.

2. Solid Hardwood Flooring in the Kitchen
Solid hardwood flooring makes a great choice for the kitchen because not only is it beautiful, it has practical features as well. It is thicker than other flooring materials which makes it good for insulation, and sound proofing. It will last of many years because it can be refinished many times.
If you just want to change the look and color of your hardwood floor, you can just sand it. You never need to replace the entire flooring.

3. Free-Standing and Unfitted Cabinets
The trend toward free-standing cabinetry from the desire to get away from the cookie cutter look by creating cabinets that look more like furniture, including such features as molding, feet, and valances. This type of custom cabinetry is available in both traditional and contemporary styles. Unfitted custom kitchens are those that are classically designed pieces used to conceal full-size appliances such as ovens, stoves, dishwashers and refrigerators. Custom kitchens with the unfitted look can also create more room for windows, columns, displays, and any other design element that can give a kitchen more character.

4. The Custom Look in Countertops
In designing a custom kitchen it is becoming easier to create the look of custom countertops because of the availability of so many materials being used today. Many of these materials can be mixed, like using concrete embedded with bits of glass and metal. While stone materials, such as soapstone and marble are still highly prized by homeowners, stainless steel, sealed concrete, and engineered quartz are being used in more low-use areas of the kitchen.

Other trends in custom countertops include: solid surface materials and granite look-a-likes that are easily repairable, and are available in many colors. Also popular is the use of ceramic tile, particularly on backsplashes. Other materials that are part of this trend is stainless steel, and butcher block in certain specific areas

5. More Sophisticated Appliances
Kitchen appliances are becoming more and more sophisticated and allowing for greater customization, personalizing, and convenience. This has helped make the kitchen the high-tech center of the home.

The following appliance reflect the changes that are being introduced in kitchen appliances today:

Duel-fuel ranges: The debate over whether to use gas or electric for cooking is an old one. Some manufacturers of stoves offer ranges that are professional-quality, and can feature both the power of a gas cooktop with an electric one.

Refrigerators: Refrigerators today offer such features as: multi-zone temperature control. They are offered in both free-standing units and integrated versions that do not look like a refrigerator, but can be concealed by the use of cabinet fronts into the surrounding cabinetry. Some counter-height refrigerators are even being used in kitchen islands or butlers pantries.

Designer Dishwashers: As with some refrigerators, the dishwasher is offered in the integrated version that can be concealed by cabinet fronts that can wash and store away dishes.
