A new laundry

Well is seems that it is not Easter weekend at my house unless we are working on some part of our house. And this year is no different, it appears that some termites have raised their ugly heads within our laundry. The up side of this is that I get a new laundry, so I have been busy drawing up some floor plans and elevations! The down side is that I wish it was my ensuite:)

Planning a new kitchen?

It takes more than just a good colour palette to achieve a fantastic space.  The little details do count when planning a new build or renovation.  This kitchen has clean lines, crisp edges and striking neutral tones, along with streamlined square edge cabinets to create a continuous line which is almost seamless. This sharp, stylish look also incorporates appliances with angular edges, continuity with the stone bench top also being utilised as the splashback and curved accents, such as the round pendent lights and bar stools.  Remember, it is important to use a variety of shapes within a space as it adds interest

These features create a warm, inviting, yet opulent space with uninterrupted rhythm carrying your eyes around the room.

Get the look of this kitchen with: * Bench tops, London Grey from Caesarstone * Cabinets, Vega Feel from Wilson Art * Bar Stools, Hinkley Swivel available through Lee & Allan Design * Pendant Lighting from Beacon * Alfa Exact Under Mount Sink & * Axon Kitchen Tap from Reece

Bathroom Decorating Tips

When building a new home or renovating. Consider these tips for your next bathroom. Try a wet room, where the shower area blends into the greater bathroom space, this will make the bathroom feel larger and you will have less glass to clean!  This is always a winner for me.  However do make sure that the drainage has been fully considered as you don't want to see water falling and pooling outside the shower area.

A wall mounted cabinet will increase the sense of floor space and also ''lighten'' the visual bulk of the bathroom, therefore making the room appear larger.

Why not hide the storage unit above your basin by using a wall mounted shaving cabinet that is recessed into the wall. You gain the added benefit of the mirrors which help to reflect light and storage that is at eye level and easily accessible.

Ceiling mounted showers give a heighted felling of space. They can however be some what impractical for women. Therefore why not consider a Twin Shower, you gain the benefit of a dual shower, height and a touch of opulence at the same time.

Install a niche (or two) in your bathroom.  They are a great way to store your favourite bathroom products and also add a little wow factor to the space.  Try a long horizontal niche running the full length of your shower wall or above your bath.

Finally, your bathroom should not only be functional but should also be a space to retreat from the world and become a bit of a pamper zone.
