Here are the 10 tips to creatively design your Living Room:

2. Light and Airy: Living room being the largest room leads to the temptation to fill it up with a lot of furniture’s. However, it will only reduce the space and make it look more cramped. Hence try to be more realistic - whether it is required or not when placing it.

3. Seasonal: Always try to add something new every season or replace something to add a new feel and a change of the old look. Need not be something really expensive, something like a coloured cushion, a small wall hanging or a wall paper would do.

4. Movement: Try to move the furniture’s position every few months so that it can make the room look new and sometimes make it feel more comfortable. This way you can utilise the room completely.

5. Ottoman & Pouf’s: Try to keep a couple of pouf’s or Ottomans, they not only provide additional seating but also being small in size do not occupy much space in the living room. Additionally, they give a trendy look. The little white seating with yellowish zig zag designs are the pouf’s used here:

6. Wall Decorations: Choose one section of a side of a wall to add some paint pattern, wallpaper or a different colour to make the living room look in fashion.

7. TV: If you are planning to place a TV in the living room try positioning it in a corner or a side where there wouldn't be a lot of movement around and it would be uninterrupted like having a walk way in-between or a balcony.

8. Cosy & Warm: Furniture with the feel of wanting to relax and cuddle up will be the best choice. They make us feel home at the end of the hectic day.

9. Simple & Elegant: If the word simple is you and minimalistic is your style. Then try to give the below look to fulfil your choice. The room has no fuzzy designs, jazzy colours or too many trendy accessories.

10. Lighting: Instead of the regular tube lights and a bulb, try adding a layer of low lights which can be very soothing and welcoming. Position light sources so they form roughly a triangle to ensure good distribution of illumination. Table lamps will provide a more relaxing and a calm mood.

5 Tips To Creatively Design Your Kids Room

7/05/2015 FlatGradings 0 Comments


Many people in India often write about interior designs, but most of them forget to cover one important group –Kids !!!

Most parents & guardians will agree to the fact that providing children with a wonderful living space in which they can thrive, learn and play is of paramount importance. A child’s surroundings can have a huge impact on how they grow and develop, so parents should always try to make their children’s living spaces as comfortable and fun as possible within their means.

Here are the 5 tips to creatively design your Kids Room:
1. Colours: The age of your kid is important for this point. If they are slightly older, around 5 or 6 years, try to avoid baby pink and light blue shades. Chose a medium tone for the wall, not too dark or too bright, because surely you wouldn’t want to scare the kids. Most importantly, try to take an opinion from the kids if they have a favourite colour. In case of a new born or a baby on its way, you could try subtle shades of yellow, green rather than the traditional light pink and blue.

2. Textiles: When adding curtains and bedspreads you could put some more fun elements and colours which are lacking on the walls. Not too bright, however attractive enough to make the kids want to go to bed. If these fabrics are going to be changed every now and then, try to pick out a variety to provide the change.

3. Furniture: Try choosing those which have a long life and would match the kid as he/she grows old. Make sure they do not have sharp edges, are not metallic and flashy. Add a dressing table which could be utilised even as they grow older rather very small ones. Try to add a vintage rocking chair which can be used to put the baby to sleep.

4. Storage: As they grow and replace their old clothes, storage space is very important to not leave the room cramped and messy. Cupboards with layers can be easier for kids. Make sure these closets are not too tight or too loose that they swing around harming the kids. Also check them regularly if they need to be fixed.

5. Toys / Library / Accessories: This is the little entertainment aspect for the kids. While designing the room, make sure the kids have adequate space to keep their toys in order after playing. Also, a small library to keep the books once they are read. This not only teaches them to keep the place tidy but also helps the kids avoid getting injured by keeping the toys on the way.
