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.

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.

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.

Whether it be a big one or a small one, there are many ways to make your bathroom look and feel elegant. Simple touches can easily transform a room but before you add anything, make sure that your bathroom is rid of all of the clutter.

Adding elegant pieces to the room will add to the classy vibe. One of the most simple and effective way to change the room is to add a beautiful large framed mirror. This not only becomes the focus of the room but it also makes the room seem bigger. Add fresh flowers or ferns. It gives the room a fresh feeling.

Thailand news: A plan to simplify environmental approval for condo project pleases the developers. Go Green is the new theme when it comes to condominiums. The new amendment to the Environmental Impact Assesment (EIA) means that no developer can start putting up condos without the approval of EIA. Under rules backed by environmentalists and groups of residents whose neighbourhoods have been endangered by mushrooming growth of condo blocks, no condo unit can be transferred to the buyer if the project does not pass an EIA. Ever since this happened, The EIA is now overwhelmed with the bulk of applications from developers who fear that their projects would be stopped if they do not follow. The rule states that seek approval from a panel of environmental experts before construction begins. Once the report is approved by the expert panel, developers are required to submit the approved report to local authorities to get a licence. I am sure mother nature will be pleased with this.
