When it comes to mixing metals there are a few things to consider before making the eccentric change. Start by choosing a dominant metal type and incorporate one or two other metals as accents only. Balance cool and warm metal tones and take your colour palette into careful consideration. This is important when keeping the flow of your space classic and uncluttered.
Large Kitchen Islands
A kitchen island is the focal point of the entire room. It serves as a functional and a decorative piece giving your kitchen a warm, cosy feel. Although kitchen islands have been around for many years, what we are seeing now are large islands that are functional and great for storage. Depending on your preferences and space, you can achieve a variety of styles and designs.
Wet rooms have become very popular over the last couple of years and it makes total sense! A wet room is a space in your bathroom where your shower and bath with floors and walls are separate to your toilet and basin area. A wet room is usually designed with a sloping floor which guides any water towards a drain. Accessing all the amenities that essentially get you wet in one area is a great way to create a space that is functional and stylish. Wet rooms also increase the value of your home.
Bold Black and White
A timeless look that never goes out of style. Black and white is a high contrast look that works well on floors, walls and furniture. With monochromatic styles coming into fashion, you simply cannot go wrong with a bold black and white look. Incorporate bright accents with this style.
Rattan and Wicker Furniture
This trend may take you back to your childhood, but the truth is, rattan and wicker furniture has made a comeback. Styled with an array of potted and hanging plants, rattan furniture is the perfect accessory for a space with bohemian influences. This is also a great option for kids rooms or cosy outdoor patios.
