Furniture with inbuilt storage space

This is a great idea which works well in every room. Furniture which has inbuilt space can be used in a multi functional way. You can store magazines, books, extra stuff inside that space and declutter your home. You can even store old clothes which you plan to throw/ give away inside this type of furniture. Modern interior designing brands have brought out living room, bedroom, kitchen furniture with clean simple lines and inbuilt storage space.

Cabinets for each room

Cabinets can be built to look gorgeous and also enhance the functionality of each room. Get your cabinets built to complement the color scheme of the particular room and the overall theme of your home. Go for contrasts and make the cabinets stand out. For example ash colored cabinets will look good in rooms with light green color and pink rooms will get an added glow with cabinets in mother of pearl shades.

Lights which highlight

Opt for lights that make rooms brighter as well as highlight the artsy kind of pieces in your home. Instead of plain boring bulbs and tube lights at specific corners of the wall and ceiling, opt to drape strands of white lights along the curtain rods in your bedroom and living room. Artistic lights can be placed on walls which have collections of framed photographs or paintings. A couple of such highlighted pieces can change the whole look of your bedroom or living room.

Splash backs

If there is one design idea that combines the ultimate in design experience and utility then it is a splash back. A splash back can prevent the walls from soaking in damp and dirt in the kitchen and the bathroom and enliven up the walls in your living room. If you have a dining cum living room then a splash back is the perfect foil to the sink area. Splashbacks are now available in polymer, glass, tile, ceramic and many other material options. The splash back theme should be chosen either to blend in with the décor or to stand out and make a strong statement.

Plants in the Washroom

Install a lot of inbuilt shelves in your washroom for keeping in towels, extra shampoo bottles and bathrobes. Sprigs of rosemary and lavender and plates of pot pourri can keep your washroom smelling nice and fresh and give it an instant glamour lift.

Now that you know about these nifty ideas which add functionality and beauty to each room don’t delay in trying them out.
