Create a beautiful and welcoming entrance to any home by decluttering the main entrance. Remember the quote, “First impression is the last impression”? 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. If there are any slippers lying scattered, clear them. If there are stray and dried leaves near the entrance, clean it and arrange two chairs outside the main door. This will instantly beautify the porch and make it more welcoming.

Living room is ideally the first room guests will walk into once they enter your house. So, waste no time and delegate some of the tasks to your siblings, children, spouse or roommate, whoever you share your house with. Get rid of the old & worn out newspapers and magazines, broken items, towels and extra items of clothing tossed on your couch. Shove them away in the storage spaces. Next draw the curtains, straighten the carpet, fluff pillows, arrange the furniture and your living room is all set to welcome your guests.

Make sure that the washrooms sparkle. Give the wash basin and commode a quick scrub!  Splash a generous amount of toilet cleaner into the pot, remove used clothes and put them in the laundry bag and don’t forget to put fresh towels for your guests to use. Finally, show off your taste by displaying your toiletries neatly on the shelves.

 Get the Guest Room Ready

All About Bean Bags and Ottomans

A new apartment is a blank canvas, but while decorating the new place we often overlook the importance of the ottoman and it’s friend, the bean bag. They serve functionality and make a huge décor impact.  What’s even better about these little wonders is that because they are smaller in size they tend to take less room, are typically less expensive and are great to experiment with. You can always try something unconventional in fabric and color- what may be flashy on a large piece of furniture may look spectacular on a bean bag or an ottoman.

Since bean bags are filled with very light weight foam, they can be easily moved from one room to another with ease, just pick it up and move. Bean Bags are a hit mostly among kids and teenagers. If you have a favorite video game which you love to play, just pull the bean bag, sit on it and get started with your game. Also, if one is low on budget, the bean bag is a great piece of furniture to furnish one’s Living Room inexpensively without compromising on style or comfort.

This piece of furniture makes a perfect hall seat to put your shoes on and if you plan to go for storage ottomans,you can create extra space for your home.

5 Tips to a Great Dining Room Decor

Great friends and great food, what else does one need in life? Well maybe one more little thing… a great place to share them in! A dining room interior decor that is both cozy and comfortable in ambience and stylishly unique in decor is the call of the day! MoBEL brings to you 5 tips so that you can take pride in your beautiful dining room décor and create.

Shapes Do Matter!

If you have a long and narrow room, go for a rectangular Dining Table since it would help fill out the space and create the warm ambience that you desire. Round tables on the other hand encourage conversation. However, if you usually require more than six people’s seating, the diameter might become too big for easy conversation flow. A pedestal structure can also work well in this case since it gives more room and leg space and allows for comfortable seating of more people.

Whatever be the shape and size of the table, make sure each person has at least 24 inches of table space to comfortably have his / her meal in. Moreover, a distance of 3 feet should always remain from the table to the wall or the nearest furniture so as to allow people to move in and out of their chairs easily.

The Seat Story Redefined…

While the usual thing to do is to match the Dining Chairs with the table in terms of the look and upholstery, a recent trend is the mix-n-match fad. Throwing in an antique chair with a contemporary set up or pairing a wooden table with wicker or leather chairs are all doing very well in adding that flair and creating a style statement in your dining space. Trying out a long bench on a side instead of chairs are also an in thing that might be a hit with your friends!

dining chairs

The Rug-ged Surface!

In a Living Room where the space largely comprises of hard surfaces, adding any fabric or textile helps to create a softer mood and bring on warmth. A rug can do the trick beautifully for a dining space. Use a stylish rug under the dining table to straight away demarcate the dining area from your living space. It should ideally extend till about 2 feet from the dining table so that the chairs are still on the rug when your guests are seated. Other options to introduce fabric and patterns include upholstered chair covers or colorful cushions on wooden chairs.

And the Light-ning Strikes!

Hang a pendant lamp or even a chandelier over your dining table to create drama in your dining experience! Remember to install a dimmer so that you can create just the right mood when you want! Also, other tips to increase lighting and make your dining space appear larger, specially during the day time is to put a large mirror across the wall against the window.

Finally the Accents!

Lastly, one of the tips to make your dining space a fashion statement that reflects taste, style, and class is to give a finishing touch to your décor by placing carefully chosen accent pieces. This might be a vibrant wall colour as a backdrop to your dining set up, or a neutral wall accented by a dramatic piece of artwork, a beautiful centerpiece on your table or even a family heirloom put up to bring a personal touch to the place.
