Well Organized Laundry Rooms That Take The Hassle Away

Wash day is a chore and the key to making it as little of a hassle as possible is to design it in a well organized way. Whether your washing machine is set away in a tiny utility room or occupies a spacious basement, ensure that every square inch of the area is used in the most coordinated way. With limited shelving space, keep your working area as tidy as you can to avoid clutter.

A built in counter top over a washer and a dryer, for instance, will allow you a convenient storage surface which you can use for sorting your laundry. In a smaller laundry room, design it so the space is well lit with task or accent lighting, particularly if no natural light is available.

How to Maximize Your Wall Power

You might think that walls are not the most important part of a room’s décor, other than what color they’re painted, but this is not true. Walls can become a powerful part of your room’s image. Here are some tips to achieve more eye-catching walls.

Wallpaper Wonders.

Use of wallpaper that has a trendy design can help to transform a space, whether it’s big or small. Wallpaper in the bathroom is especially striking and it adds a nice touch to this room that is usually left neutral. In fact, it works so well because of this tendency. If you are going to use a wallpaper that is very patterned, make sure you keep it the focal point of the entire room to prevent décor overkill.


How To Use Gray In A Kids Bedroom

Kids are as individual as adults, so designing a bedroom for one based around a neutral color, such as gray, should be treated in a unique way every time. The great thing about gray, in a child’s room, is that it will create a base color for other tones to stand out. If your kids’ room is too focused on one primary color then the overall look can be overwhelming. This is more typical in children’s bedrooms than guest rooms because, usually, the color theme is based around gender.

If you want to take the level of vibrancy down a tone, or two, mix and match pink or blue with gray. The real advantage of gray is that it works in a very natural way with a wide range of pinks and blues. From soft rose pink to hot fuchsia or powder blue to aquamarine, a mid toned gray will anchor the look in away that does not compromise or clash with your other color choices. And you can mix gray into any kid’s room in a wide variety of ways.
