Gussie Mills Kitchen, 2017-09-27 18:29:51. The trend of making use of old, worn materials or items is a must in green living. As you can see in the above image, a salvaged cabinet comes alive in the kitchen, giving it an interesting piece of furniture that could have been part of a living room in its previous life. By leaving salvaged items a little worn and torn, this further makes them unique creations in the kitchen, while preventing waste in the environment. Stone in the kitchen is always a great natural material, but you can also choose from stone countertops that are made from recycled materials. This takes the green initiative one step further. Stone can be trendy and colorful, as can be seen from the countertop in the above image that is made from recycled wine, beer and Vodka bottles.

Break up the monotonous nature of some tiling designs with a few splashes of red here and there. A simple waist level band of red tiling, set against white, is a good look to go for. This will complement other red elements in the room no matter where they are positioned. Alternatively, a vertical stripe of red tiles behind your shower fitting can create a similarly dynamic look.

Shower curtains are a great option for bathrooms that don’t want to install glass enclosure doors or don’t have enough room for the swing of the door. Many shower curtains install on low profile tracks on the ceiling to enable the curtain to stay open while making your bathroom feel larger. Also consider adding a valance or hang a decorative fabric for a formal approach to your bathtub/shower area. These curtains can also have a liner placed behind the fabric curtain to ensure water doesn’t damage the valance and decorative curtain.

You know the ones – the ones that are so full with oddly shaped items that they’re hard to open and, once open, it takes a while to find the item you actually need. I love how this idea can integrate easily into any style of kitchen. Taking two minutes to install a tension curtain rod in a kitchen cupboard (think: under the kitchen sink) will reap major rewards when you find you now have an organized, sanitary place for your kitchen cleaner spray bottles. You could even use the rod to drape cleaning cloths so you have everything in the same place for some quick cleanup.
Grete Qvist Bathroom, 2017-09-27 16:59:55. This is a very simple but also elegant bathroom. It’s small but instead of being cluttered it feels airy and chic. That’s because the goal was to create a warm and inviting décor. The walls feature a very nice texture thanks to the stone and the floor shares a similar color. Wood was used for some of the details as well as for the mirror frame and stools. Stone can also be a great material for a modern bathroom. This one, for example, features a simple and stylish décor with walls covered in stone and that feature a very interesting texture. The double sink and vanity share a color palette similar to the one used for the walls and the transparent glass door and the mirror create a sense of openness and spaciousness.

In such situations make a virtue of the necessity and accentuate what you would normally prefer to hide, like down pipes and waste pipes. Select brushed stainless steel faucet fixings and a towel rail that matches your basin’s waste pipe. Why not extend the idea and use metalwork for your basin, too? Chrome works well as an alternative to stainless steel. If your powder room is located under a stairwell it can be even more pushed for space than elsewhere. Don’t be put off a clear design ethos just because the ceiling may slope or because the room has an awkward corner to negotiate. Site the toilet at the place where headroom is most restricted. Keep the color scheme light in tone and hang a large mirror to give the feeling of more space. Another good tip it to install a hand wash basin that sits in a corner, so guests don’t have to squeeze past it.
Fleta Wuckert Bathroom, 2017-09-27 17:26:52. In most bathrooms the ability to get ready for your day and have enough space to move around can often be a challenge. Your bathtub and shower area can often be an area that is forgotten when considering space saving, and utilizing a shower curtain can save valuable space. Shower curtains are versatile, can change with your decor and don’t require a lot of space to open and close a shower door. If you have been trying to find more space and make your bathroom look larger, consider a shower curtain with these helpful ideas.

The toys can double as décor for the kids’ bathroom, which ultimately simplifies your life and adds fun color to your space. A word of caution with this strategy: make sure you limit the number of bath toys, so that the shelves don’t become a free-for-all junk drop. Two or three larger toys might just be all you (or your children) need in the tub.
