Hottest Trends in Remodeling

RemodelingTrendsEnglandFurniture

When remodeling your living space, it can be fun to draw from trends that you see on television and online. Tastefully incorporating trends into your design vision can be hard to master, which is why finding an interior designer can be a great help. If you’re planning your space solo, here are some trendy ideas that can spark your imagination to reach the room’s potential.

Exposed Wood Beams
They’re beautiful and can even help make your house architecturally safer. Exposed wood beams on your ceiling add an element reminiscent of farmhouse living. Often, you can find inexpensive reclaimed wood or opt for synthetic versions that look like the real thing. Both vaulted and cathedral ceilings look great with exposed beams, but you can integrate them into any room.

Exposed Brick
Today’s trends take homeowners back to basics. Older buildings often have exposed brick hidden away behind dry wall, so before demo day make sure to check for this hidden treasure. If you live in a newer space, you can always incorporate an accent wall or columns made of brick for a rustic feel.

Thick Crown and Base Molding
Creating contrast between the ceiling and floor can help to make the room look bigger. The easiest way to do that is with thick crown and base molding. It doesn’t have to be intricate, but it adds an extra layer of interest to the space. Make sure to keep the color white and have a contrasting color on the walls.

Gray Paint
This unexpected final touch came about recently, but gray tones can go modern or rustic. You can play around with the tone of the room, but ultimately it has a classic feel. Even gray furniture can help you complete your look–this gray sofa is the EZ Motion Reclining Sofa with Nails EZ1C01N. There are hundreds of fabric options offered by the England Furniture Company that can help you stay on trend and create a beautiful home.

Summer Design Tips to Brighten Up Your Home

England Furniture Bright Living Room Summer Tips

Now that you’ve done your spring cleaning and are ready to enjoy the summertime, here are some tips to brighten up your home and splash into a warmer season. While a complete England Furniture overhaul isn’t for everyone, these tips are for redecorating budgets both big and small.

Light curtains
Let sunlight dance around your home while maintaining privacy. Opt away from the blinds and heavy window treatments this season. Use a sheer curtain fabric in a light color and more solid colors on the sides to frame the window.

Store away the heavy blankets
In the summer it can be comfortable to wrap yourself in a lighter blanket. The look of heavy throw blankets on couches in the living room can give off the wrong feel, so try out a lighter blanket. There are many ottomans from the England Furniture Company that you can use to save those heavier blankets for the fall!

Add some flowers
Fresh cut flowers add life to any room! If you’re prone to allergies, there are ways to make faux flowers look alive. Adding a bit of water to the bottom of a vase can take ordinary fake flowers up a notch. Adding just a few real flowers can tie the look together to make it more believable. Flower arrangements almost always have some greenery in them, so don’t be afraid to add in a few small accents of real green leaves.

Bright pillows
Accent pillows are your couch’s favorite accessory. These pops of color can pick up on a hue in your new bright drapes or threads in your new blanket. This fun accent is an easy way to bring life to any color couch.

Beachy scented candles
Seasonal candles add another dimension of summer to a living space. While the rest of the room can look visibly bright, candles add an extra summery scent.

England Furniture Reviews Some Furniture Arrangement Tips

England Furniture Arrangement

When it comes to arranging furniture there are many ways one can precede. That does not mean, however, that one can’t make some mistakes. While experts agree that the surest way to create a flawless room is through trial and error, there are a few rules you should keep in mind. England Furniture Reviews how to arrange furniture:

1. Hang Paintings or Mirrors in Relation to the Rest of the Furniture
Paintings or mirrors should ground everything around it. Don’t hang them too high. Typically place them around 24 to 36 inches above a piece of furniture, although that rule vary a bit depending on the height of the artwork or mirror itself.

2. Light Your Room Entirely
Lighting is one of the most essential elements in any space. Spread your light sources around a space and make sure every part of the room gets lit. If, for example, you have a lamp next to your bed, place two more strategically in the room to create a triangle of light.

3. The Coffee Table Should Be Big
Large coffee table, as with rugs, can help to expand and connect a room and an big coffee table contributes more to a room in terms of both aesthetics and function and aesthetics. The coffee table should be placed around 12 to 24 inches away from your sofa.

4. Go Big and Under with Area Rugs
Small rugs make a small room even smaller and they make a large room look disconnected. Your rugs look better when they’re bigger and all the furniture is on them. Place your rug underneath at least the first set of legs of your bed – or under your couch and chairs – to create a cohesive look.

5. The Higher the Curtains, the Better
Go high with your curtains! In many cases it’s best to hang them from the ceilings to the floors. This will make your ceilings appear a lot higher and it expands the room.” Curtains that are too small come off like an afterthought.
