Window Blinds and the concern of privacy

Your windows are ideal for and will look best with inside mount blinds like you planned. If your recess is less than 2.25″ and you expect your inside mount shades to project out a little after they are installed, you may consider ordering the valance that comes with these blinds as outside mount. Zen interiors cater to your needs when it comes to window blinds.

This valance cap will then come a bit wider than the shade itself and have 3″ pieces that will return to the wall. These pieces can be trimmed down to fit your needs or left off altogether. The valance exceeding the width of the shade would look better than one projecting out past the recess and into the room at the same width of the shade itself.

It is important to note that many people decide to inside mount these shades. Quite often people overlook that these shades are being mounted where they took out their screens last winter. Mounting them inside where you think you have room often means you have made your screens worthless.

Roman shades will definitely work. So will almost any other treatment.Ready-made, single width drapery panels with grommets on a wood pole would go a long way on these windows. All though they are not functional and do not offer privacy, they would go well with a basic wood blind or cellular shade on the windows.

But Romans would look like nice too. I just find them to be less than ideal when people want privacy + light in the daytime. Also, the way light illuminates the fabric and does not where they are laying on molding is not always attractive and bugs a lot of people after install. This can be avoided with black outlining used in the roman, but then you have a pitch black living room in the daytime.

Solar shades–how do you feel about them in terms of value, especially vs. light filtering shades?

Solar shades help a lot. The solar shade is going to do more for you as far as stopping intense light/heat and making the space more livable. And if you are into a more modern look, this decision is a no-brainer.

Interior decoration with our collaboration

 Zen Interiors offers world class interior design services that helps to give your homes a new makeover hat gives your living spaces a stylish new look

Style and living blend in completely, and this gets reflected by the homes we build, the choices we make on building our homes. The first condition to creating an interior is to select something that defines your personality. If someone is more of a comfortable person, he or she can decorate the home in shades of light colours. If someone is more naturally inclined, he or she may try shades of green and yellow. If someone is more of an office classic, he or she can experiment with shades of grey and blue.

The main idea is to make the smaller rooms more spacious, by painting them with lighter colours and painting your personality into them. Use of larger windows and mirrors cause the illusion of large rooms too. Mirrors and light increase the illusion also.

Every room is a work of art and tells a story of its own. If there’s an antique in your room, it narrates a tale of inheritance and history. If there’s your favorite couch beside it, that will tell a tale of how you could not resist a pricey item and you couldn’t get over it. The past and present could easily settle into one room and coexist wonderfully.

With fabrics, rugs, carpets, cushions, and colours, there can be a throw of colours and hues. Adding green plants, lanterns, hanging pots and lamps bring about more vibes to the rooms. Adding reading nooks, ethnic kitchen designs, antique shelves, bring about huge differences.

3 tips to pick designer wall tiles for your bathroom

At Zen Interiors, our experts will help you to find the best wall tiles for your bathrooms to give it a stylish new look that meets your general style

  1. PICK YOUR MUST HAVE TILE FIRST.

Commonly when we begin a washroom redesign we have one tile that we long for incorporating into our plan. At times it is an extremely exceptional or one of a kind decorative wall tile and other times it is as straightforward as realizing that you need white metro tile. In any case, take that fantasy tile and utilize it as the beginning stage for the other tile you will decide for your washroom plan.

  1. Try TO KEEP IT TO NO MORE THAN 3 DIFFERENT TILES.

Taking your first (must have) decision as a beginning stage, utilize it to settle on the choices for alternate tiles you will incorporate into your outline. On the off chance that your must have is an extremely one of a kind shading or design and will be the point of convergence of your plan, pull more unpretentious hues from it to use in your emphasize tiles. On the off chance that however your first decision is extremely plain (like a white tram tile) you might need to include a component of enthusiasm with a beautiful highlight tile or even a littler scale white penny tile to switch it up and include intrigue.

Often, you will pick a story tile, a divider tile for the shower/tub encompass or even the majority of the dividers in your lavatory, and a complement decorative wall tile that will be utilized as a point of convergence. This is only a rule. Try not to be hesitant to break the guidelines a smidgen.

  1. STICK TO ONE SHOW STOPPER.

There are such a significant number of excellent tiles out there and a lavatory is an ideal place to flaunt some of your identity and go for broke with a fun shading or example on your tiles. Be that as it may, on the off chance that you will let it all out, keep it to one work of art. This will make your look ageless and truly make the wow factor that you are going for since it won’t contend with alternate components in the room. (A significant number of these super unique tiles can be expensive, yet in the event that you are working in a little territory like a lavatory, they may very well be the go overboard you require since you won’t require a lot of square feet.)

Your mid zone can be spacious or little, it’s dependent upon you.

Shopping for stairs? We’ll help

At Zen Interiors, our experts help our clients to find the best staircases that suits their home interiors, and adds a charm and style to their abode

Hunting for domestic staircases can be a pain. There are many sorts of stairs that we can build or add railings to. This rundown portrays some of the more famous stair types:

Straight Stairs

This is the most common type of staircase setting found in most homes and offices.

Benefits straight Stairs:

  • Straight stairs have a tendency to be the least demanding to go here and there or ascend/descend  as we say in the business.
  • They are normally the least demanding to construct however this depends on the level of detail in the plan.
  • Straight stairs only need be connected at the top and the base (no middle supporting structure is required).
  • They function admirably with moderate designed homes because of their inherent simplicity.
  • By choosing more slender treads, open risers and thin metal stringers, straight stairs can be made more transparent than different sorts of stairs enabling less obstruction to the view past.
  • No landing is required if the quantity of risers are kept under 16 or the general vertical stature is under 12 feet.
  • Its moderately simple to assemble railings and handrails for straight stairs.
  • Measuring for railings is less complex also.

L Shaped Stair (or often called quarter turn stairs)

The L molded stair is a variety of the straight stair with a twist in some segment of the stair. This twist is typically accomplished by including an arrival at the twist change point. The twist is frequently 90 degrees, be that as it may it doesn’t need to be. In the event that the landing is nearer to the best or base of the stairs it is sometimes called as a long L stair.

Points of interest of L formed Stairs:

  • L Stairs can be all the more outwardly appealing.
  • They give a visual hindrance between floors so they can include some privacy.
  • Also L Stairs can assist to some degree with sound transmission between floors if the stairs are contained inside dividers.
  • Some believe that they are more secure than straight stairs as the focal landing decreases the quantity of treads one could fall in a given flight.
  • The landing can give a place to stop and rest while ascending.
  • They can be situated in an edge of a room if this works better for your plan.

 

U molded Stairs (or some of the time called half turn stairs or bend stairs)

U Shaped stairs are fundamentally 2 parallel flights of straight stairs joined by a getting that requires 180 degree hand over the walk line. This is a more complicated sort of the domestic staircases and if often used only because of the visual appeal.

5 Interior Design Tips for Commercial Office Spaces

1. Keep the Work Environment Light… with Natural Light

Anybody that has ever worked in a basement level workspace (or has seen the Tom Hanks 80’s classic “Joe versus the Volcano”) realizes that an office situation without common light can weigh heavy on staff mind. While most workplaces today do have the window space accessible to attract this light, not every person exploits it. Studies have demonstrated that exposure to normal light enhances working environment efficiency, so even from a “primary concern” outlook it bodes well. Open up the space surrounding the windows with the goal that it is permitted to radiate through. However, with regards to utilizing common light for plan and “feel”, it’s not just about more. Controlling the light that enters an office is basic to catching the correct tone. To finish this, consider having customized blinds introduced, set to alter for the regular movement of the sun.

2. Make Space, or its Illusion, in Smaller Offices

You might work with restricted area. While the space is somewhat tight for your loving, you can make the impression of a totally open breadth. Controlling regular light will help do the trick, yet there are different techniques to add to the blend, including the following:

Paint with lighter tones

Deliberately put mirrors

Limit office furniture to the basics

Utilize office decorations with no windows

3. Coordinate Color Conducive to Productivity and Good Spirits

There are many studies on the effect of shading on working environment efficiency. This article outlines the general discoveries great, expressing that blues and greens make a relieving environment, that orange and yellows can advance hungers and agitation (separately), that reds can invigorate mind wave activity yet prompt uneasiness, and neutral hues (brown, beige, grey, and so forth.) can quiet yet be depressing if darkened excessively. Since shading can have such an effect on profitability, it is essential that if you plan on incorporating a solid shading sense of taste into your office space, you must take advice from an expert interior designer first.
