Sometimes its not just Jeremy and Sarah that you need to accommodate, but a 3-year-old Jeremy and a 4-month-old Sarah can definitely add another layer of design anxiety. The first thing to tackle is the furniture layout. If you have a baby, chances are you’ll be in and out of the room at night to tend to the baby. If possible, place their beds in opposite corners or walls with the crib being most accessible to the door. Obviously structural elements such as windows and heaters can dictate otherwise but your design objective is to give each child the most comfortable night’s sleep without one waking the other.
Designers are always looking for ways to incorporate color into spaces. And for a good reason: Shots of bright color add visual interest and a playful feel to any room. One new way people are using color is with colorful grout. Once simply a way to seal the spacing between tiles, grout is taking on a fashion sense all its own. By dyeing the actual grout bright colors like teal, yellow and pink, a tile design can have a fun accent color that adds some artistic flair to a space. Read on to learn how to work with the new design trend of colorful grout.
A popular idea for fold-away kitchen storage is cabinets that pull out instead of swinging open. This often gives an increased amount of storage, since you can use the whole space under the counter more easily. Traditional shelving in cabinets has a primary problem. What usually ends up happening is that you use the front part of the space because that’s the easiest to access. Then, if you do use the back part of the cabinet space, you end up with items in the back of the cupboard that don’t get used because you forget they’re there. With a roll-out system, you can see clearly in the light of day what you have in your cabinets.
