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.
The exciting part of creating a super fun bedroom for your young brood is accessorizing and customizing design elements to match their budding personalities. Select design elements that make the room feel like it belongs to both of them. Personalize accessories throughout the room such as wall art or coat hooks. Marquee lights with their names or first initial add a pop of energy and excitement to any space. Likewise, subtly add gender specific themes in one or two accessories, but keep them color coordinated. For example when accessorizing with red, try a throw pillow with a red fire engine for him, and a pillow with a red flower or heart for her. Storage that is complementary to the design scheme but specific for each gender (think charcoal for boys and yellow for girls) can also seamlessly pull a room together.
When choosing your colorful grout, don’t feel limited to standard paint colors. The shiny gold grout in the photo above demonstrates how well metallic shades work in a bathroom. This style stands out when matching the grout to bathroom fixtures. To make the metallic grout pop, aim for a light or muted shade of tile. Metallic grout doesn’t have the colorful intensity of the other neon shades above, so it needs to be paired with shades that won’t compete for visual attention. With so many shades of colorful grout out there, and so many ways of incorporating it, options are endless. Will you pair dark grout with light tile? Neon grout with dark tile? Metallic grout with floor tile? However you’d like to use colorful grout, we’d love to hear about it below.
