Staircase

A stairway is a construction designed to bridge a large vertical distance by dividing it into smaller vertical distances, called steps. Stairs may be straight, round, or may consist of two or more straight pieces connected at angles.

Special types of stairs include escalators and ladders. Some alternatives to stairs are elevators, stair lifts and inclined moving walkways as well as stationary inclined sidewalk.

Stairs may be in a straight run, leading from one floor to another without a turn or change in direction. Stairs may change direction, commonly by two straight flights. Stairs may also return onto themselves forming a vertical stairway commonly used in multistory and high rise buildings. Many variations of geometrical stairs may be formed of circular, elliptical and irregular constructions.

What are they made of?

Staircases can now be made from a wide range of materials. The most common is timber set of stairs which can be made out of different woods.Another very popular type of material for staircases is a mixture of steel stairs and supports and glass panels. These create a really modern look along with creating a sense of space.

Different types

Probably the most well-known staircase type is a straight style. These are usually in a single set or are set at an L shape, with one flight leading from the next. Most homes will have stairs like this as standard as they are very easy to install.

Spiral staircases are great if you are short on space. They are good for putting in the corner of the room as they rise straight up. In addition to this a spiral staircase will only need a small amount of floor space and will not cut across the room.

Freestanding stairs will not be attached to a wall and will tend to run through the middle of a room. Often the actual stairs will look as though they are almost floating hence giving it a really unique look.

Single open-under stairs are similar to freestanding stairs, but they are attached to one wall. This means they only have one side that looks ‘open’ and many people prefer this style. Not only do these types of stairs look good they also create the impression of more space, so they can work well in small houses.

With so many different types of staircases it can be hard to make a decision on what you would like. However, it makes sense to think about the practicalities that the types of staircases offer before making a choice. Do this and the ideal staircase for your home will become clear.

Exclusive Furniture

Furniture are the movable objects intended to support various activities such as seating and sleeping, and it is an integral part of any home/ office space

History

People have been using natural objects, such as tree stumps, rocks and moss, as furniture since the beginning of human civilization. Archaeological research shows people began constructing and carving their own furniture, using wood, stone, and animal bones. Complex construction techniques such as joinery began in the early dynastic period. They constructed wooden pieces, including stools and tables, sometimes decorated with valuable metals or ivory. The furniture of the Middle Ages was usually heavy, oak, and ornamented.

Types of furniture

Depending on the uses and requirements we have different kinds of furniture’s used for seating, storing etc.

Seating is amongst the oldest known furniture types. This includes carved and sculpted pieces intended as works of art, as well as the styling of seats to indicate social importance, with senior figures or leaders granted the use of specially designed seats.

A sofa is one of the most comfortable pieces of furniture to sit and relax on.  It is the perfect piece for these types of rooms because it allows for several seating areas built into one piece of furniture.

Significance

Traditionally, furniture has been made of wood. With the industrial revolution, furniture manufactured from materials such as steel, aluminium, glass and plastic, began to appear. These materials may have revolutionized the furniture industry, but wood is undeniably a staple material in furniture manufacturing. Not only is wood everlasting, but it is timeless as well. Whether it is an armoire in the family room or a chair in the dining room, wood furniture manufacturers manage to combine eternal beauty along with a contemporary style.

  • Strength and Durability-Wood furniture is extremely resilient and requires very little maintenance. Wood is a long-lasting natural material which can last for generations with minimum care.
  • Ease of maintenance- Wood furniture is nearly effortless to maintain. Simply wipe the surface of the wood chair parts with a wood cleaner on a regular basis.
  • A decor staple- Adding a piece of wood furniture to a room will completely change its look and feel. Wood furniture offers elegance, charm and sophistication to any room.
  • Modifiable- The beauty of wood furniture is that it can be changed over time. By sanding and staining, or painting, you can refinish wood furniture and give it an entirely new look.

Decorating a large room

The most common problems with interior designers is making a small space look bigger than it actually is. However, it is an equally tedious job to fill the space in a larger room! You don’t have to resort to filling up your living space with unnecessary clutter. Using the right kinds of furniture and placing it in a certain way will help fill up your extra spaces without making it seem too cluttered.

Stay proportional

One of the advantages of having a large living space is that you can install art works. However, you need to ensure that the furniture and the art does not conflict in size. Even when choosing furnishings such as coffee table, lamps, additional seating or other small furnishings, make sure that they fit well into the existing interior layout. You can also use large fixtures such as book cases, shelves and other fittings as a nice contrast to the interior texture.

Partitions

You can create invisible partitions within a room by the way of structuring and use of different types of furnishings. For example you can install a TV in one end of a room and a book shelf at the other end. You can also change the kind of lighting, albeit slightly, to make subtle changes to the different parts of the room. If you want to make the partitions more distinct, you can use Japanese screen partitions and sliding room partitions as well.

Why it’s important to choose ergonomic office chair

Working in an office requires your employees to be seated on a char for most of the day. Over prolonged periods, this can seriously hamper their posture, thus resulting in serious medical complications. It is important to have chairs and office furniture that reduces stress on the spine, which will alleviate the chances of developing back problems.

This is why a company needs to invest in ergonomic chairs for their employees. One of the key factors of an ergonomic char is seat height adjustability. This will ensure that the workers are positioned correctly at the desk, irrespective of their height.

The seat should also offer quality lumbar support, at the bottom of the spine. The lower part of the spine has an inward curve and sitting for long hours with no support to this region can lead to slouching, which alters the natural curve of the spine.

A flexible back rest is also important, and it should also be adjustable in height and flexibility.  The back rest should also offer optimal back support as well, ensuring minimal stress on the back.

Adding bright colours to your interior designs

The most common consensus when it comes to interior design is to use bright/ sharp colours sparingly. Too much bright colours will overpower the surrounding colour combination, and will stand out like a sore thumb. However, when used correctly, additions of bright colours will give your interiors a refined look.

Experimenting with different tones and shades of bright colours is recommended. Modern homes evoke a sense of beauty and house challenging architectural styles, which will benefit from the sharp, contrasting colours. Choose from different shades of the colour to find one that suits you best in order to balance out softer shades.

Bright colours are more suited for the outdoors. Pairing a brightly coloured window pane with a muted outdoor wall paint will give your home an idyllic look. Some people even go as far as painting their doors in bright colours such as red, blue and green, given that the architecture can pull off such a feat.

Adding bright coloured accessories can give your interiors an eye popping look.  A bright orange chair when placed in the right spot, in the midst of muted colours will give your home a more contemporary look.

Creating the perfect bedroom

The ideal bedroom is where serenity and calmness resides. This is where you can be yourself and let go from the hectic schedules of your daily life. It is thus important to create a viable environment where you can sleep and dissociate yourself from everyday hassles. Be it a small room or a big room, a bedroom should always be designed to suit your needs.
Try choosing muted colours for your bedroom walls. This will not “shock” your visual sense when you wake up, unlike the bright walls. Pale blue, gray or ivory are popular choices for bedroom walls. You can choose hardwood floors for your bedroom, but make sure to use carpets. The carpets will help keep the floors considerably warm, even after a cold night.
When investing in a bed, make sure you splurge. The bed is the focal point of the room, and you can go out to choose the most luxurious model you can afford. A good bed will ensure a good sleep and will keep you refreshed when you wake up. Make sure to position your bed in the right direction- not too close to the windows and at a sufficient distance from the air conditioner. This will help ensure that the temperature surrounding your bed is uniform.

Setting up the perfect home office

Working from home provides an unprecedented freedom and eases work pressure. However, having a lazy workspace at your home can actually be counterproductive. Propping on your couch with a laptop and working on your coffee table can seriously hamper your productivity. If you are someone who often works from home, it pays to have a designated home office, can help eliminate minor irritations that hamper your workflow.

When planning your workspace, you need to think of creating a comfortable, yet professional workspace. Good seating arrangements should be one of your first priorities. You do not have to invest in the costliest worktable and chair, but having a good, comfortable chair and worktable is important.

Good lighting is also important. Try to position your workspace as close to a natural light source, such as a window. Also, invest in a good lighting system as well, for working during dark, moody days. Working in a place with optimal lighting will reduce strain on your eyes.

Good ventilation is also important. Invest in a good air conditioning system for those hot, humid days. This will have your work environment in an optimal temperature, thus keeping you from being uncomfortable.
