This is why it’s important to consider the colours of rooms and furniture when outfitting them. Just the right shade on the walls, and tone of the furniture’s finish can make you feel warmer, happier or less anxious. Here we look at how you can tailor a room to an ideal mood for its purpose.
If you’re planning an interior design project to complement existing items of oak furniture – or are buying new oak furniture for the featured room – there’s one key question you should bear in mind throughout the process.
What colours go with oak furniture?
Here we take a look at a few ways of modernising and updating oak furniture, so it remains at the very heart of your home.
DIY can be a fun and productive way of upgrading a house or living area without the expense of hiring tradespeople to do it for you. However, sometimes over-eagerness can get the better of us and what should be a simple job often goes awry due to lack of preparation.
With a little forethought, a DIY project can be a gratifying creative outlet with practical applications. Here, we show you how to measure a room correctly, so you needn’t have any awkward moments on your next DIY undertaking.
Conservatory spaces can be a bit weird, in as much as they aren’t quite the same as other rooms in the house. The all-glass exterior makes them some sort of hinterland between inside and out, and decoration can be tricky with few places to hang things or arrange items without blocking out light.
However, with a bit of clever thinking and an out of the box approach, there are plenty of small conservatory interior design ideas that can be utilised to really open that space and, once again, make it somewhere welcoming and enjoyable to spend time in. Here, we look at several creative ways to do that.
The living room is the hub of the home, the nerve centre, if you will. It’s the main area for socialising, relaxing, and entertaining but being a room with so many purposes can mean that creating an ideal layout is not particularly easy.
Here we take a look at how you can create different atmospheres from your space with a few living room layout ideas, and see how the placement of living room furniture can really change a room.
Oak furniture has been eternally popular due to its sturdiness and quality but being a natural product, it’s also liable to damage and suffer age-related wear and tear. Many people are understandably reluctant to throw out their worn furniture because of the quality of the grain but don’t know what to do with it otherwise.
This is where upcycling may be a useful option. It goes beyond simply restoring oak furniture and presents a different use for it that still allows you to keep it in the home.
Storage is a perennial problem in the modern home with more and more accessories and items to help us with daily life – but limited space with which to manage it all can prove a problem. As such, there are a few clever buys and nifty storage hacks that can help give you a few organisation ideas.
