Lighting in both cases tend to be in the design industry with a focus on light line, light art, and accent lights. Modern minimalist space usually feature a white or neutral wall with little to no work or window casing trim. Plain wall art and allows large accessories to take center stage. Major walls or glass windows are usually used to create a sense of airiness and maximize natural light. Modern layout usually open concept with a simple division that made the room with furniture, bookshelves, cloth, or low-rise closet.

Modern minimalist house design using geometric forms thick with polished finish and an asymmetrical balance. Textures are kept to a minimum, and the form takes precedence over function. Furniture is efficient in the form and fabric with a cloth or leather in a neutral color or tone-on-tone pattern. Metal accents such as stainless steel or chrome is often seen on pieces of furniture, hardware, or equipment.

The first thing to examine is the counter surface area. Look at where you put everything in your existing kitchen and where in your new kitchen design will these things will go in the new space. Kitchens need a personality and a look and feel that can liven up the senses in addition to being a functional place for the preparation of food. A good kitchen design should have sensible work triangles and the right appliance arrangements so it will be easy to move around.

Lighting

Even if the kitchen has generally good lighting, the counter areas can be somewhat dark. For these areas under-cabinet lighting can help provide more light to work in. In addition to decorative lighting which can match any style, remember to but abundant task lighting over food preparation areas. Mood lighting can accent glass front cabinets and cove ceilings. Accent lights can be located under cabinets, against walls, or other areas. Additional lighting can be added in larger kitchen spaces with wall sconces.

You’ll also want to consider how you light the island and table areas. Here is where you will want to insure that lighting is adequate, and looks great with the style of your kitchen. In the kitchen several requirements need to be met and these must be aided by precise lighting. Thus kitchen lighting is mostly task lighting and ambient lighting and less of decorative lighting. Direct lighting is achieved by using conventional recessed lights, surface lights or light fixtures that are on a pendant or chain

Friends & Faves Link Question


We have a question for you, our wonderful blog readers & followers:

Do you prefer finding blog links to our friends & faves in the sidebar {where they stretch out forever!} OR on a separate page with a link to the page in the sidebar?

We made this change recently, and it looks like less people are 'surfing' our links now that they are on a separate page. So, we thought we should ask if you prefer it the 'old' way or the 'new' way. Leave us a comment and let us know, won't you? If the consensus is that links in the sidebar are preferred, I'll get to work putting them back. {No small feat} We appreciate your help with this - thanks!

Living Room Interior Designs

http://www.interiordesignandremodeling.net/interior-design-remodeling-living-room-Rodrigo-Quinones.jpg

A living-room serves as the main room of the house; it serves as a multi-purpose room, which can be used for entertaining guests, to relax or retire at night and read a book, to watch a movie or TV, listen to music and much more. When playing the prime role in the house, a living-room needs to give the impression of a trendy, up-to-date yet extremely comfortable living space.

A living-room plays a number of roles, serving from an in-home movie theatre to a study room, but the most significant role played by a living-room is that of a TV lounge. This is the reason why, most of the time, the main focus while refurbishing a living-room is kept on the television - its position in the living room, the placement of the sofas or couches opposite to it and other aspects regarding the television. This is good if one considers the living-room solely a TV lounge. If a living-room is used as a multi-functional span then before setting it up, every single aspect of the room is to be taken in.

The living-room can be used for entertainment and also for formal occasions. Therefore, interior of living room should be paid special attention. The living-room reflects your personality and has to be decorated and styled according to your comfort and needs. Following are some living-room interior design ideas:

If you have a chimney or fire place area in the sleeping-room, you can make it the centre of the room. Make a small conversation area, using cushions or small tables and chairs in front of the fire place. Place the television and sofa or couch in the other corner of the apartment. Placing lamps in the corner and using large paintings in the rooms will add to the beauty and warmth of the room.

One should use a combination of light and dark contrasting colours but they should not be shocking. Do not use very dark colours on the walls as it will make the apartment space look smaller and congested.

Placing a love seat by the window in the room will make a good small corner for reading too. Placing matching or contrasting rugs in the room will make it more beautiful. Use simple decoration items. There should not be many large decor items; only one centre piece is enough. The centre piece can be placed on the table in the centre of the room.

The large piece used should be sofas, couches, chairs and bookcases. Another good idea to make use of old furniture is by using covers of rich heavy fabrics. One can also paint the furniture of dark wood colour that gives the room a classic look.

Placing fresh indoor plants can also be very useful. Small potted trees and plants in the sitting-room look refreshing to the eyes and also clean the air. Right items like furnishings and decors can greatly improve the interior of your living room if used properly.
