Frame for Keys:

Basic key hooks or key hangers are boring. Jazz up your key hangers by taking the outer shell of a photo frame and use it to frame the key panel for a unique look.

6 Modern Bedroom Decorating Ideas

Bedrooms that are stylish and elegant can also at the same time be bold, bright or romantic. There are numerous ways in which one can stylize Bedroom Interiors and offer a cozy personalized retreat. Modern bedroom interior can be glam, contemporary, bright, minimalistic, romantic or even classic. It all depends on the taste and style of the owner.

Bedroom Set

Glam: If glam is the look you prefer, make sure to keep the surfaces uncluttered and don’t forget to add a combination of rich textures, warm materials and soothing colors. To take it one step further, add a few pools of light fixtures and you gift yourself a perfect escape for a cozy haven of relaxation. The ambiance created by this type of bedroom strikes a perfect balance between elegance and class.

Contemporary: A bedroom which is relaxing and tranquil can offer a wonderful getaway. If contemporary bedroom decor is the style which best suits your taste, here’s how you can decorate it. The symmetry of the interior and the décor are the 2 most important details to pay most attention to. Decorate the room by teaming up crisp white linens with monochrome accents. To make this bedroom more “contemporary”, hang floor length curtains on either side of the window frames. Wondering how that’s going to help? It will instantly create the illusion of elevated height and larger windows. Additionally, it also maximizes the light and breeze coming into the room thus making it light and airy.

 
Bright & Colorful: If you want your bedroom to represent your bold and bright personality, then accentuate it by painting the walls bright. A bright yellow wall will immediately bring the interior bang up-to-date, thus freshening the room and bringing the whole space to life. Bright and colorful rooms also bring in with them a happy feel to the room. Add a set of mismatched frames and a chandelier to contrast perfectly with the bold wall giving it oodles of personality and character.

 
Minimalist: If you are a firm believer in the ‘tidy home, tidy mind’ spirit, then you will certainly feel at home with minimal spaces. The mantra of a minimalistic bedroom décor is having only essential furniture and bright white walls to make the most of light. Throw in some contrasting beddings and rugs to add vibrancy to the room.

 
Romantic: To create the perfect romantic bedroom décor, the first thing which needs to be done is to get rid of your existing furniture and make room for a bed with clean lines. Elegant bedding is the perfect companion for a romantic bedroom interior. Finally, add a mix of warm colors, solid furniture and infuse your favorite fragrance to give your room a touch of romance.

 
Classic: Refined elegance is what sets a classic bedroom décor apart from the herd. Choose simple color palettes if you plan a classic décor for your bedroom. A combination of blue and grey makes for a wonderfully subtle master bedroom. This design is about artistry and sophistication. Add boldly ornate décor pieces like a chandelier and combine with pastels to render your bedroom a classic unique look.
Transform your bedroom into a stylish haven with these Modern Bedroom Décor Ideas.

Well, the entrance is the first place where a visitor or guests step foot into, so it is essential to set the tone of your space at the very onset. Clean the entrance.

Fold it away:- Folding furniture has a repute of instantly transforming a congested space into a well-organized and multi-functional room. The furniture market has a wide array of Sofa-Beds which takes less of space and can easily be folded away when the need for a bed ceases. For quality sofa beds and other furniture, shop at Mobel Furniture, India’s leading furniture store. Another space-smart idea is installing a built-in mirrored closet. It not only visually doubles the space of the room but hides loads of storage.

Advantages of Installing Wooden Flooring

Wooden flooring is an often recurring dream for most Home Décor enthusiasts. The rich brown color with the natural sheen looks incredibly sophisticated and chic. The ethereal beauty offered by wooden flooring is sure to cast an instant warmth and patina to any home. Can you recall the time when you were tagged along with your parents to visit a distant relative or family friend and you noticed the flooring made of wood? The footsteps were so prominent as you crossed the hallway. It rings a bell right? Old fashioned houses still have wooden flooring. However, these days, the alternative to wooden flooring is laminated wooden flooring. Lets check out the top 4 advantages of installing wooden flooring.

 Wooden Flooring

Looks: The look that a wooden floor offers is incomparable to any other form of flooring.     The best thing about wooden flooring is that it goes with every type of Home Décor accent available under the sun. The phrase “beauty lies in simplicity” goes best for wooden flooring.

Value: It goes without saying that this type of flooring looks like a million dollar affair, and should you ever plan to sell your house, it will instantly crank up the value of your     home several notches up. Now, that’s awesome, isn’t it?

Timeless Beauty: If taken proper care, Wooden Flooring can last a lifetime. They don’t get easily worn away by the ravages of time. And if hardwood happens to fall victim to partial     wearing( which hardly happens), rest assured that repairing them will not suck the     life-force out of you!

Easy Maintenance: Yes you read it right. Maintaining and caring for wooden floors isn’t as difficult as it looks. Go for vacuum or regular cleaning on alternate days and don’t forget to use a wood cleaner whenever you think the floors could do with a little polish.     Laminated wooden flooring is way easier to clean than hardwood flooring, for     unlike the hardwood, the laminated flooring bears the brunt of scratches and moisture.

As Keats had rightly said “A thing of beauty is joy forever”, the beauty of wooden flooring is sure to spruce up your family pad instantly and stay with you for generations to come.
