‘Living’ Bathrooms

Colored Metal Fixtures

Silver stainless steel fixtures are a thing of the past. You could replace them with brass, bronze or colored metal in black or gold to add a unique touch to your kitchen or bathrooms. Unlike the timeless silver furnishings, these will add a very contemporary appeal to your place.

You simply cannot have a modern makeover by playing safe. Create unexpected focal points in your living room or bedroom by adding accessories in pop colors like neon pink, orange, red, etc. these are not only aesthetically pleasing but also add a happy welcoming touch to your place.

Large Format tiles

Replace those small boring tiles with some large format tiles on the walls as well as the floors to add a sense of grandeur to the place. Though it might sound like a small enhancement, it is going to make a big difference to the ambiance of your household.

Geometric Patterns

Being sleek and minimal is an important aspect of everything modern. And nothing can help you better than the classic geometric patterns with this. You could use geometric wallpapers and sleek, sharp-edged furniture to bring a formal and sophisticated touch to your living room. You could also do away with the traditional round edged countertops or tables and replace them with sharp-edged ones or butcher block countertops.

Art and Nature Will Lead the Way

It is true that not every one of us has a great sense of art, but you can never go wrong in incorporating an artwork in your living room or bedroom. Placing it somewhere that falls directly in front of the eyes as one enters will give the place a character of its own and is sure to leave a lasting impression on your guests.

indoor plants

Like art, bringing nature into your home will never leave you disappointed. More and more people today are opting for a little less tech-crazy ambiance, turning to nature instead for peace and positivity.

You can keep plants in almost any portion of your house, be it the kitchen, the living room or the bedroom to bring in a touch of natural colors.  If you have enough space to spare, having a sunroom to escape the chaos and hustle of the household and rest in the lap of nature will be a dream come for most of us.

Theme coordinated cabinets

Cabinets are an important feature of your kitchen. And the best is that you can not only play with their color but experiment with their shape as well! From concealed cabinets for smart storage to those high reach ones that enhance the vertical dimension of your kitchen, you can transform the look and feel of your kitchen using cabinets!

You can have your cabinets in bold, quirky shades to make your kitchen a more vibrant, lively space or use textured cabinets omake it look less industrial and more homely! In case you are using glass cabinets, it would be a great idea to paint on their insides and surprise your guests.

Fireplaces will never run out of class…

This is a classic feature that you can simply never go wrong with. Over the years fireplaces have come to be a mark of comfort as well as sophistication. In fact, nowadays, people treat the fireplace as the center of their living rooms instead of the television to spend some quality time with their loved ones.


If you wish to avoid the maintenance required by a wood-burning fireplace, as well as the pollution it creates, you could opt for gas fireplaces which offer a pleasant substitute and are available in a range of shapes and sizes and are also easy to maintain.
