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.
The bathroom shouldn't be forgotten when creating a beautiful home. The right mix of textures and materials can make the bathroom a relaxing getaway. Keeping the design concept throughout your home in mind, extend your style into the bathroom with these design ideas. Minimal and timeless styles are in the mix with a few glam designs. Small spaces are made to seem larger with the right color and style combination. While making that beautiful look, don't forget the storage and functionality. These rooms managed to get it all right.
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.
Walk-in showers have a strong spa feel, and incorporating them into a steam room will create your own private spa. You'll be able to use both things and they won't take too much space, the only thing you need is a bench or some seat, if there isn't enough space, you can make a folding bench. Let the seat correspond your bathroom style: if it's a nature-inspired bathroom, you may use a large stone instead of a seat, or go for a wooden seat. It would be wise to include a small window that can be opened when you use the shower alone to let the air circulate.
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.
First of all, choose your style. Dark colors can fit almost any décor style: modern, minimalist, vintage and they are traditional for masculine spaces. Second, choose the colors. Dark and moody spaces do not always mean black, it can be grey, dark green, purple or blue. Molding on the walls looks very good, especially in graphite grey or black. Accent walls are not necessary because they there will be many more other accents in the room.
