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.


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.

Add details

Go bold with the paints. Since you are looking to give a large room an illusion of limited space, you can use strong, dark paints. You can also invest in other additional architectural details like ceiling beams, pillars, etc to give your living space a cosy feel.

There is so much you can do with a large room. Make the best use of the available space to give large spaces a decorative look.

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.

The beauty of handmade tiles

Handmade tiles have a unique charm that is impossible to replicate with the factory made tiles. The subtle imperfections, such as uneven edges, disproportionate colours, and rough surfaces add to the overall look and feel of the handmade tiles. The contrasting differences between handmade tiles and factory made tiles are one of the main reasons for their huge appeal in the market.

Handmade tiles have appealing imperfections, and sets up a beautiful rustic ambience, which is why they are highly prized in the niche restaurant and other small establishments. Handmade tiles are made from traditional clay. Additives are added to provide colour and sturdy structure. When these are baked in a kiln, they result in an inconsistent colour pattern that the handmade tiles are famous for.

Once they are cooled down, the glaze will set differently in each tile. Slight cracks may appear on the glaze during the cooling process, which adds to the rustic look. This cracking however, does not result in a weaker/ substandard tile. These cracks form a unique pattern that looks like an art on its own.
