It can be a challenging task to redo your small bathroom. When the space is limited, it becomes particularly challenging to incorporate the desired design elements while still maintaining a functional bathroom. So, if your bathroom is small and you need some decorative ideas for it, then you have come to the right place.
1. Add Mirrors: Adding mirrors across an entire wall can instantly double the look and feel of a small space. Mirrors are also effective for reflecting light, so that you can make the most of both natural light and light fixtures. You can always choose from a variety of decorative mirrors to add a touch of style to the bathroom.
2. Create An Accent Wall: If you want to add a splash of color to your small bathroom, you got to place it on the back wall. This technique will not only give your bathroom depth but also add life to it. If you wish to add some pattern, then use it in the same fashion. However, adding too much color can dilute the effect hence concentrate only on one section and keep the rest of the walls simple and light in color.
3. Plants and Flowers: Surround yourself with a bevy of flowers and green plants to create a soothing ambiance of your very own. It is also said that houseplants helps to purify the air. Well, now you’ve got more than one reason to put plants in your bathroom!
4. Wall-mount sink: Install a wall-mount sink to make your small bathroom look bigger. This type of sink is designed to free your floor space and give your small bathroom a unique and stylish look.
5. Colorful Displays: If you want to revamp your bathroom while maintaining a pretty palette, all you need to do is boost your bathroom’s color scheme by adding different colored towels to the wall-hung storage units. To give it a bubbly and lively look, accent a green and blue scheme with occasional pops of coral. Trust me, they look absolutely amazing!

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.
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.
Window blinds are practical and effective solutions to light control and privacy, but cleaning them properly can be a herculean task. Dust easily gathers on blinds just as it settles on an other surface, but with Mobel’s helpful tips and tricks, you can easily take away the stress of cleaning your window blinds.
Venetian Blinds: The horizontal slats on the Venetian blinds gather dust easily. Because of this, the Venetian blinds can at times be off-putting. In spite of all this, there is an easy solution to the weekly cleaning of the blinds which will take very little of your time. There are two simple ways of getting it done. First, keep the blinds open so that the slats are parallel to each other. Take a piece of an old cloth or a duster and gently wipe across each slat to remove the dust. Second, if your vacuum cleaner has an upholstery tool or attachment, you can use it to gently clean the slats without even opening the blinds. But while doing so make sure that the suction power of the vacuum is turned low so that you accidentally don’t pull the slats out of shape.
Vertical Blinds: Unlike the Venetian blinds, these window blinds doesn’t require a huge amount of cleaning. For weekly cleaning of the blinds, close the blinds so that all the slats flatten out making the surface uniform for cleaning. You can then easily wipe the flattened slats with a soft cloth or duster. But remember, while doing so don’t exert much force on the blinds lest they bend or break. When you are done cleaning one side, simply flip the blinds rounds and repeat the process.
It is recommended that you go for a deeper cleaning once every year. To do so, simply leave the blinds soaked in mild detergent for 10-15mins and then wash them under running water. Dry them outdoors. That way you can dry the vertical blinds without marking or creasing.
Roller Blinds: Another kind of blinds which is relatively easier to clean is the Roller blinds. Before picking up that duster, roll the blind all the way down and then gently wipe them using the duster or simply with a piece of cloth. Sometimes you tend to stain your blinds, but you can easily get rid of those stains by dabbing in some gentle liquid detergent on the affected area. Damp a cloth and wash the detergent off. But before doing so, check with your supplier if the type of fabric used for the blind, supports washing liquid.
