To give the space a character and customize it more, the owner placed a vintage suitcase on a stand as a storage piece and hung a basket for towels. This is really a cute idea to repurpose a couple of old objects and make your space more personal.
There is no right or wrong when it comes to personal comfort, but for this review we split the difference and searched for the best mattress at a medium firmness. For comparing prices, we looked only at queen-size mattresses, the less expensive of the regal options.
A contemporary atmosphere is hidden in the details. For an exhilarating effect,choose an open canopy bed to go with your large windows. This way the light can flow freely and flood every corner of the room without interruption, just like the example above, designed by Cleare Interiors.
For more counter space, this kitchen utilizes a huge natural wood island with its own sink. The bright yellow where gives the kitchen a very youthful glow. With a small breakfast area and plenty of cabinetry, this urban kitchen would be perfect for a couple. A more modern option for kitchen islands, this one uses a bright white countertop and funky chairs.
There's nothing quite as liberating as taking a shower in the great outdoors, but if your location or typical weather forecast doesn't allow this luxury, then how about one of these dual aspect windows that look both out and up, forming a cutaway of your room for an outdoor effect. This master suite really has it all: a serene sleep area, a walk-in closet, and a truly enormous shower taking center stage. Another great application of LEDs make this shower room stand out, but lets hope the inhabitants of the next skyscraper over don't own binoculars.
Decorating with grey is a clear thing as this color is good for everything: walls, ceilings, floors, furniture, upholstery and accessories, just vary the shades to get what you like. If you want something airy and neutral, choose dove grey, if not – charcoal grey is right what you need. Black will also look good and contrasting with grey and yellow; if you want a lighter look and airy feel, add white or cream. As for yellow, this color is more difficult to use it right and not to get a tasteless result or not to make your living room too bold. If you already have a gray living room, you can add just some yellow accents that can be changed for other when you are tired of them: a console table, a couple of frames, a mantel, pillows and throws. You can also add some bold yellow artworks and stools or ottomans to enliven the room.
Sometimes choosing a theme for a room can be the best inspiration for getting it to feel exactly how you'd like it. For bedrooms, one great theme is going with a country vibe that will make you forget the bustle of life outside the bedroom door. Keep the walls sunny and bright by choosing a pale yellow paint color and decorate with landscape photographs and light wooden furniture. Use antique touches, like a delicate chandelier and curvy nightstands to make sure the room doesn't feel too old-fashioned or frumpy.
While the idea of attic living sounds fabulous, ensure that you are ready for the transition from the main floor. While many people enjoy their master bedroom at the top of the house for the serenity, many don't enjoy the climb up the stairs. If you have small children, you may not want to be far removed on another floor. While if you have teenagers and a large family, the attic may be exactly what you need! Assess your family lifestyle and the layout of your attic in relation to other parts of the home to decide if a master bedroom attic will fit.
When choosing nightstands, be mindful of the space available. Smaller spaces may not be able to handle more than one bedside table. Mix it up, if you are so inclined; the matching nightstand rule was made to be broken.
The next step is to determine how much work, cost and house renovating it will take to convert your attic into a master bedroom. For older houses, the heating, ventilating and air conditioning will have to be run to the attic and possibly plumbing pipes. For many home owners, the expense of having to run new services to the attic is minimal in comparison to the benefit of added space and functionality. Before you get started, ask a contractor or a home improvement professional to assist you in estimating the costs. Remember return on investment (ROI) could bring you back more money than you invested into the initial conversion.
