How to use the mirrors to have a sensation of larger rooms?

December 17, 2012

The rooms of the small dimensions may be a little bright, uncomfortable and very limiting. But they can look big, bright and spacious if you put mirrors in some particular locations. In this way,, they reflect the natural and artificial light, offering the illusion of depth. The mirrors can be strong and big, but the mirrors can easily be broken, so make sure that you have a home insurance to cover eventually damages.

Walls

Take the most of natural light entering the room by placing a mirror on the wall opposite the window. The mirror will reflect the sunlight into the room. But if the window is large compared to the size of the room, a mirror on the opposite wall can create glare. In this case, it is better to hang the mirror on the wall perpendicular to the window. The effect is the same if you use a large mirror or a number of small mirrors nearby placed.

If you have a small dining room, the bedroom or bathroom, you can cover an entire wall of mirrors or mirror tiles. From floor to ceiling mirrors can be found in a bedroom or on closet or cover the doors, if it covers the entire wall is too expensive. A cheaper option in a dining room is to cover the top half of a wall with a mirror or mirror tiles and place the dining table next to it. This trick is often used in small cafes and restaurants.

If there is space between the wall and the window frame or between the inner walls, the mirrors can be hung on both sides of the walls and on both sides you can place the applique lamps reflect the mirrors. This will give the impression of two additional windows. However, you should be careful not to overdo the effect. Do not hang mirrors on both walls.

Have a mirror above a fireplace is a classic trick to give the illusion of space. The light reflected in the mirror balances the dark inside the fireplace, but also reflects the light of the flames.

The mirrors on the ceiling are not accepted by everyone, some people find that the mirror from the ceiling has an intimidating tone and worsen the environment. The mirror is not a good idea in kitchens and bathrooms, with time labels may come off with the vapors and the heat that is generated in these two spaces.

Surfaces

The mirrors can also be positioned on the surfaces, on tables, on chimneys, although on some surfaces may not seem a good solution, and can be too exaggerated in a space or surface, so it may be preferred that the mirror is not placed over the entire surface of the table , but only on the final part of it, on small surfaces, such as beliefs or drawers.
The mirrors which are located inside the cabinets, in the libraries can give a small feeling of space, but always limited, and will always be best traits of an area illuminated from one side.

 

 

Kitchen: ideas and solutions

December 9, 2012

Among the domestic space, the kitchen is perhaps one where you tend to spend most of the time. In these pages we want to give some ideas to design and decorate the kitchen according to taste, needs, capabilities and available space.

Wood and glass to divide

The modern kitchen is separated from the living area by a sliding glass door and a fixed panel of the same material. These are separated by a double-functioning element.

Kitchen at all light

The kitchen furniture, arranged in form of letter L is willing to have gloss lacquered beige doors, while the roofs are frosted glass. The wooden floor is cut at 45 ° from ceramic gray tiles gray in corespondency with the working area.

Techno elements

In the past almost exclusively used in professional kitchens, stainless steel is now the protagonist in the compositions of contemporary taste and hi-tech. Hygienic and resistant to impact and corrosion, is offered in various finishes – smooth, striped, satin or brushed – even combined with each other.

A highly strength material

Stainless steel is marked by different acronyms depending on the percentages of chromium and nickel in the alloy. For the kitchen is used steel 18/10 “austenitic” characterized by a particular composition and marked with the letters Aisi 304. This material has high mechanical strength and corrosion resistance and is suitable for contact with food. Lends itself to molding deep, that is, to the realization of elements of complex shapes. For durability, the steel requires a careful maintenance. Daily cleaning should be done with neutral detergent or with soap and water, and do not need to use steel wool or abrasive products.
If the steel is not dried well,it forms streaks and patches of limestone. In some cases, the material may be subjected to painting treatments, which forms a protective film and do not allow to leave traces on working areas.

Contemporary tradition

Suitable for rustic or a tavern, fully kitchen wood is warm and welcoming. Is one with the dining area, which is ideally separated from the counter used as a work surface. The furniture can be completed by the iron candlestick, from tools and pots and pans hanging on the copper grids compartment. And it is designed for moments of conviviality, for example, for wine tasting with friends.

Showcases and cabinets

The furniture of the kitchen are arranged in a U so as to maximize the space. The composition is equipped on both sides with base and wall units with glass doors. The module is flush with the sink under the window, but the valve does not impede the opening because the frame has glass sliding doors.

With free-standing modules

It is inspired by the professional models, steel kitchen consists entirely of free-standing modules. Two container elements next to each other form a single work bench. The objects of everyday use are left exposed in order to have everything near you when you need it.
