Rounding of stairs or corners
To create more flow in a space, it is wise to round off your sharp corners. This way, you gain more space and make a design feature that you benefit from aesthetically and practically. It’s a win-win all around.
Create interesting storage solutions
Storage is the key to a well-functioning home. Well-designed storage will mean that even a modest space can be optimised, as Carly did here. By adding her touch of getting her sketch carved out into the wooden doors using three different types of wood. This is an old traditional technique called marquetry.
Creating an Outdoor Rug Effect With Floor Tiles
Whether you have a small patio or a large alfresco entertaining area, creating an outdoor rug with tiles can be adapted to just about any size of space. This creates a vibrant seating area visually. Just like an area rug will help delineate and zone various areas in your home, a central patterned floor tile will do the same, drawing your eye to a particular area for seating, entertaining or anything else.
How best to create a home gym
When designing a home gym, one must include residential features. Carly incorporated wooden flooring, cosy lighting and warm wooden features that make it a stylish home gym where you can work out and relax in a more holistic space to do yoga.
Everything you need for the ultimate guest bedroom
A guest bedroom should feel inviting. Carly used very soft and calm tones to create this. There is storage for all the luggage under the bed. Hidden phone charging for convenience. Instead of using Art on the walls, the tapestry was used instead, which absorbs sound.
