Choosing Furniture

Categories: Helpful Tips | September 17th, 2014 | by Kitch | no comments

The size of your home doesn’t determine how classy it is. A small place can easily be transformed into a classy abode as long as you know how to maximize the space and how to choose the right furniture. When living in a condo, a common dilemma is that the living space doesn’t meet the space requirement. So if you find yourself in the middle of the same problem, here are some easy steps to take to make your living space not just livable but also something to be proud of.

The first step is to study your floor plan and choose the key areas where you will place your important furniture such as the bed, the couch and dining table. Now if you are moving to a new space with no furniture, shop around for pieces that can serve dual purpose. A popular example for this is a couch that transforms into a bed. When living alone or no more than two people, go for small pieces. A small table for the dining is much better. Also consider the color, go for lighter colors because lighter shades make the space look bigger.

Categories: Information | June 28th, 2013 | by Asia | no comments

There’s nothing more romantic than enjoying a candlelit dinner with the most special person in your life while being serenaded by the melodic strings of a keyboards piano.

Indeed, if you have a fine taste in music, a piano would be your obvious choice for a musical instrument. Why not? Classic, check! Musicality, check! Style, check! Whether it’s a classy baby grand piano or a modern digital one, the long and short, black and white keys are sure to create a stunning melody that’s always pleasant not only to your ears but to all your senses. Arguably, there’s no better musical instrument that can evoke emotions from anyone than a piano. Whether it’s a slow and meditative tempo to help soothe your feelings, a fast and sharp tune to awaken your emotions or a sad and contemplative harmony to ignite passion in you, the piano strings can capture any mood flawlessly.

If piano is your type of instrument, hold your horses before buying one. With so many options for you, you may end up buying the wrong kind. The first thing you need to know is that there’s a suitable piano depending on the level of your skill in playing it. If you’re new at playing piano or still a beginner student, most piano teachers recommend a full range piano or the 88-note key bed.

If you have your own space or a condo, then you may want to consider trying out the best storage for your area. You may choose from a wide array of cabinets that are available in the market today, however, one of the best choices to date is the customized cabinet.

Customized Cabinets

True, having your cabinets and storage will leave you with perfect-fit and tailor-made ones. A custom manufacturer can provide solutions to unusual space configurations as well as match existing architectural and design themes. It can also provide you with a much wider selection of finishes and colors and can guarantee you really quality results and full-proof  storage solutions.

If these are enough to convince you to hire one, then you must know that it will definitely cost you more than those only displayed on the shelves. However, if budget is not of much concern, then this will be the best choice for you.

Have A Grown Up Condo

Categories: Information | April 9th, 2013 | by Kitch | no comments

 

Having a grown up place easily makes it a classy one. It doesn’t take so much to make a place classy and comfortable. If you do not know where to start, start by tidying up. Cleaning a room is the easiest transformation you can do without spending a buck. Cleaning your condo doesn’t just mean sweeping the floors and dusting. Take out all of the things you do not use and get rid of them. Do not hold on to old stuff that will only add to the clutter.

When it comes to furniture, there’s no need to buy new ones. You can have your old ones re-painted and re-upholstered. Pick basic colors. Mix dark ones to light shade walls. What will transform rooms is having a really good lighting. Get rid of too bright hospital lights. Stick to pretty lamps that will make your room feel warm.

For a sample guide, have your whole room painted white. Take your furniture and paint it brown/wood shade. Accessorize your room in a minimal way. Have two or three beautiful pieces around that suits your personality. Don’t over do it.
