Woven Roman Blinds

Roman blinds are still one of the most popular types of blinds being sold today. They are distinguished by the gathering that occurs as the blind is raised. As the blinds are pulled up the fabric folds up into pleats usually by virtue of horizontal rods that are inserted at regular intervals resulting in neat, uniform folds.

But not all roman blinds are made from fabric with a popular selection created for the casual appearance in a room in the form of the woven roman blind. Often made from thin bamboo strips, they are tightly woven together to form an eye-catching matchstick weave. Alternative materials used to create woven roman blinds include rattan, jute, reeds and other grasses and each of them provide a wonderfully organic look and feeling to the room. They look delicate thanks to the thin pieces that make up the body of the blind but they are actually quite durable.

These blinds are easy to install with a quick hanging method and can be trimmed to size if the window is narrower than the blind and you want it to hang inside the window frame. When left in their natural state woven roman blinds may well be a brown color ranging variously from light to darker brown. But the wooden appearance can be camouflaged somewhat with a can of spray paint and some imagination.

Woven Roman BlindsWoven roman blinds can be given all sorts of funky looks with patterns or designs added to the front while still giving the appearance of plain brown from the outside. They can also be woven in intricate designs to make the weaving itself part of the decorative apeal.

Speaking of the outside bamboo woven roman blinds can be used just as effectively in outdoor situations as they can in indoors. Screening off a patio or any other outdoor area should not be a problem and the bamboo will stand up quite well to the weather conditions. The only caution with using these blinds is that the cord be tied off or placed high and out of reach of children.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re going for elegance or casual simplicity woven roman blinds provide you with both options and are available in all sorts of patterns and colors. It must be remembered that due to the nature in which the blinds are woven they will allow a certain amount of light through. If the window they will be covering is facing the afternoon or morning sun it would be a good idea to buy them already lined.

A bamboo runner rug can be placed in the hall or any other main thoroughfare and you can be comfortable in knowing that it is a rug that will provide non-slip qualities to the floor. Due to the nature of the bamboo the rug will stand up to heavy traffic and won’t wear noticeably over a reasonably long period of time.

Bamboo runner rugs come in a surprising array of colors from dark through to light brown, some of them tending towards golden while the darker browns looking like dark chocolate. With such a healthy range of hues there should be a bamboo runner rug that will suit most traditional styles of rooms plus quite a few contemporary themes.

For a room that hints at touches of wood, the wood-like appearance of a bamboo runner rug will complete the picture. There is a definite chance of a welcoming statement that can be made with a long bamboo runner rug and in the right location they can look downright attractive.

With every chance of providing interesting decoration in the room, a bamboo runner rug is unusual enough to be eye catching without diverting attention away from other, more decorative pieces.

Depending on the size and length of the runner rug that you are considering buying a bamboo runner rug can be found for anything between $50 and $200. The color of the bamboo itself can be accented or contrasted with any kind of edging material to give the rug added character and interesting appeal.

One of the positive aspects of using bamboo as a decorating medium is that bamboo is a fast growing grass that is in plentiful supply. This means that it is a product that renews itself relatively quickly. You don’t have to remove the entire plant in order to harvest enough bamboo to provide you with plenty of materials to work with. In effect, a bamboo runner rug is an environmentally friendly product.

The most common type of wall mount kitchen faucet that you are likely to see is the dual handled faucet. A satin nickel finish is also quite popular and the cross handles are a favorite for ease of use reasons. Where there is some room for personal preference to come in to give it your own touch is in the shape of the faucet spout.

Wall Mount Faucet 1

Rather than choosing a wall mount faucet with cross handles you may want to go for a more traditional style of faucet handles. Something like the lever handles could be more your thing. In this example the lever handled wall mount faucet has been manufactured with a chrome finish.

Wall Mount Faucet 2

Oil rubbed bronze is a particularly popular finish to use with kitchen faucets, particularly when putting together a rustic or farmhouse style of kitchen. Pictured here is a very traditional, old-style looking faucet that incorporates the oil-rubbed bronze finish with the traditional looking lever faucet handles.

Wall Mount Faucet 3

We've seen chrome, we've seen nickel and we've seen bronze, so here is another variation in finish. This time it's brass and this brass has been given the treatment to help bring out the shine in the metal.

Wall Mount Faucet 4

But the wall mount kitchen faucet that you choose doesn't necessarily have to be bound by the lure of the traditional idea of a kitchen faucet. A more modern wall mount faucet will also look effective. Here is a modern faucet that has been given a clean lines appearance with as little embellishment as possible.

Wall Mount Faucet 5

Just because the faucet is wall mounted doesn't mean that it has to have two handles. This is merely the more common type of traditional faucet set up. A more modern faucet may very well consist of a mixer that is mounted on the wall for easy application. A mixer faucet that is mounted on the wall can bring a few other features along with it or features may be easily added to the package.

Wall Mount Faucet 6

Finally there are wall mount kitchen faucets that are given as much practicality as possible. Here we have an articulating kitchen faucet in which the faucet spout consists of multiple moving joints so that it may be positioned exactly where you need it. Whether that's filling large pots or lowered so that food preparation is made simpler.

Wall Mount Faucet 7

As mentioned at the start of the article, the wall mount kitchen faucets displayed and discussed here are merely provided as a guide to give you some idea of the choices that you will be faced with. Within each of the styles shown are all kinds of small design features to givethem their own personal appeal.

Decide on your needs and on the type of faucet that looks appealing to you, then go out and buy your ideal wall mount kitchen faucet.

These tables are fabulous for seating large numbers of people, they are usually as solid as they come and they look great no matter what the surrounding décor looks like.

Generally a trestle dining table can be characterized by the way I which the legs are located with a solid block at one end of the table and another block at the other.

Moving on to more exotic types of wood there are quite a lot of example of cherry trestle dining tables. Cherry is a hard wood and it would provide a table that was built to last while maintaining the most beautiful of finishes out of all the types of wood you will come across. If you’d like something a little lighter you may go for a maple trestle dining table. Again, maple is a very reliable type of wood and well suited to the job of a dining table. Also available are tables made of mahogany, hickory or teak.

But trestle tables aren’t only made out of wood. It’s a style of table and the trestle style has been adapted for use with materials such as glass. A glass trestle table will look similar to a wooden trestle table only in the hardware under the table top, which would operate in the same way that the wood ones do.

Make sure you have taken careful measurements of the room where you trestle dining table is going to be situated. They are often a large type of table and you don’t want the room to be overpowered by the sheer size and presence of your new trestle table.

Buy Net Curtains For Casual Appeal

Window treatments are always a difficult part of decorating a room, largely because if they are done right you hope that they will be barely noticed. If they help other parts of the room stand out and they are creating the right balance of light and privacy then you know you have made the right choice.

One of the lighter screening types of curtains is net curtains. They are important because they provide you with a little bit of privacy yet they are sheer enough to allow some of that important light into a room. They are a casual type of curtain that will catch any breeze that happens to make its way into the room and will wave comfortably creating a relaxed mood.

Net curtains provide a few benefits when they are hung in front of the right windows. They are visually appealing bringing that quaint, prettiness to the room. They are able to be customised, ordering them to be made so that they match the rest of the room. They are also quite inexpensive making them a cheaper alternative to dress the windows.

Don’t think for a minute that net curtains are all the same because the truth is that there is a wide range of net curtains available with subtle textures and woven patterns in the netting allowing you a range to choose from. A set of lace net curtains should appeal to most tastes with the intricate designs a feature that adds much needed texture to a part of the room where such things are sometimes lacking.

The following is a part of the range of sheer and net curtains that are available to buy at Amazon. They represent a range of designs and styles.

Here are just a few of the better known patterns that you can get when you buy net curtains. The embroidered net curtains are always popular with the patterns made with either simple understatement or bold showiness. You may also get jardinières, voile panels, café curtains and window sets each of them in a net curtain that will look lovely.

In general you will have to hang your net curtains using the traditional stitched seam pocket that has been threaded onto a curtain rod. However there are a growing number of net curtains that have been made as eyelet curtains making them even easier to hang than they already are.

Do Brushed Nickel Faucets Stain?

The short answer is, yes they do. They are prone to become discolored with water spots, particularly if you live in an area where you are served by hard water. Hard water can leave a white stain on the faucets due to a build up in the minerals in the water. This build up is often hard to remove by simply wiping.

Taking a solution such as a citrus cleaner or rubbing alcohol diluted in water should remove this scummy residue quickly and easily if you rub it with a cotton ball.

Some people advocate the use of diluted vinegar and water and trying to softly scrub the faucet with an old toothbrush. It would have to be gentle enough so that it doesn’t damage the nickel finish.

Try to make it a habit of checking your brushed nickel faucets as well as the shower heads and knobs. If the water you use is hard enough to create noticeable marks on the hardware it will only get worse if left to harden over time.

Although the claim is that smudges and fingerprints will not affect your brushed nickel faucets, this is not 100% true. They will show up over time but they can be easily removed and measures can be taken to make it more difficult to reoccur.

If you find that there are fingerprints on your brushed nickel faucets you can simply prepare a weak ammonia solution and then wipe down the faucets using a soft cloth. To discourage the fingerprint marks from returning it is possible to use a neutral-color wax on the surfaces.

The first reason that you would choose a granite sink over a sink made with some other material is that it is aesthetically pleasing to the eye. The darkness of the granite makes a profound statement to the eye and many people will find this an extremely appealing aspect. You may choose to match the granite counter top exactly so that the entire sink and counter look as though they are one, or you may choose to contrast a dark granite sink with a light colored counter top.

Granite Sink 1

Granite sinks come in single or double bowl configurations and are made in an array of sizes. They are also quite deep down to a depth of 9 inches. Anything deeper than that is not comfortable ergonomically. They may also be made with multiple depth levels in the one unit. So the larger bowl may be a couple of inches deeper than the smaller bowl.

Part of the appeal of a granite sink is that it is very easy to keep it clean, particularly if you have installed a non-porous granite sink. The stone can simply be given a rinse with the top every so often. For small spots that stick to the sink, a solution of vinegar and water will quickly clear the stain. If the stain is larger and more difficult to remove, a solution of baking soda and water that is scrubbed into the surface gently will have the sink looking new again without much fuss.

Granite Sink 2The variations in the kind of granite available are another feature that many people will like. Although granite is often a dark stone, there are kinds of granite that is almost white in color. For most people the bigger drawing attraction with a granite kitchen sink was that the dark sink stood out from the rest of the kitchen. A white granite sink is still a very striking and also gives you the other benefits of all granite sinks.

One of the really attractive types is a farmhouse granite sink that gives you the large, deep basin that is common in a farmhouse sink but you get to show off the entire front wall of the sink. The exposed side of a farmhouse granite sink creates an eye-catching feature in the kitchen.

Finally, a granite kitchen sink wins hands down on the counts of durability and ability to withstand hot and cold temperatures. Due to the nature of the stone a sink made of granite will provide you with a hard, resilient surface that will resist chipping and scratching.

A granite sink meets the needs of anyone who wants to install a sink that looks different to the standard stainless steel sink. It will give you a sink that will perform strongly day after day, remaining clean and hygienic without a lot of effort.

Modern Rugs Are Essential Accessories

Once all of the major details have been seen to when going through a home renovation or a major redesign, it’s the little details that will give the room its edge. One of the important so-called minor details includes items such as accent rugs.

We use rugs in our home for a variety of reasons. They may cover a floor that is less than perfect, they may add a splash of color to the room or they may help to define the boundaries of a room. All of these reasons are valid for all kinds of rugs from accent rugs to runner rugs and they make tremendous accessories for defining the tone and style that you have given your home.

Modern rugs help to create the contemporary style of a room, utilizing up to date patterns and colors that range from plain to eclectic. In general modern rugs are being created with an artistic flair that aims to allow you to personalize your home while matching your existing color scheme.

Whereas traditional rugs are handmade over a long time, a modern rug is factory made and is made in large numbers. The techniques used to make each kind of rug are similar but only to the point where the end result is a woven rug. For this reason, a modern rug will cost far less than a traditional handmade rug.

The rug you put on your floor is going to be an item that is used to accessorize the furniture that already exists in the room. Modern rugs feature bold colors and they are made to endure a lot of traffic. They are also an economical way to furnish the home.

There are many places where you can pick up a quality modern rug. Naturally, a flooring store is going to have a selection, as are the larger department stores and specialty carpet stores. For the best choice your first call should be to a specialist carpet store because they are going to have many great examples that could yield the rug you’re looking for. Know the exact colors that you feel are important and must be represented in the rug you want to buy.

Whether the modern rug you buy is made from natural fibers such as wool or a synthetic material your main objective is to emphasize the other furniture in the room by highlighting their tones through the colors and patterns in the rug.

Combining Beds With Storage

When you have to deal with an undersized bedroom and you’re wondering how you will ever fit a bed and all of the cupboards and chest of drawers required to meet your storage needs, you will have to turn to some of the more creative types of beds to answer your needs. Beds that contain storage options underneath serve two purposes and they can still give you a look that meets a high quality in terms of style.

Let’s take a look at three different styles of dual function beds: platform beds, loft beds and cabin beds.

A platform bed is a bed in which the mattress is laid directly on wooden slats or panels rather than a box spring. A characteristic of this kind of bed, and one that has helped it to become particularly popular, is that the design consists of simple clean lines. Whether you buy a wood frame or a metal framed bed, there will be something that will fit in with the surrounding décor.

Due to the height at which the platform of the bed sits, there is usually plenty of under bed storage available with this style. There are quite a few models that come with built in drawers to add even more significantly to the bed’s functionality. Platform beds are generally available in either double or single sizes.

Take a look at some of the platform beds available to buy. More information is available about each bed listed.

The next bedroom space saver is a loft bed. These kinds of beds are the sorts of things that many kids dream of sleeping in, mainly for the thrill of going to sleep at a great height. A loft bed may contain a desk or wardrobe underneath providing a handy solution for a bedroom that is too small to fit these pieces of furniture. In short, a loft bed is the top deck of a bunk bed without the lower bunk underneath.

There are a number of loft beds available that will give you a choice of a bed that will suit everyone.

[phpzon]loft bed, 4, HomeGarden[/phpzon]

Another bed that provides storage underneath is a children’s bed, known as cabin beds. This type of bed is raised off the floor however it is not raised to the extravagant height of a loft bed. Cabin beds give your child the experience of sleeping at height, but only to the height of the top of a standard chest of drawers. In fact, a chest of drawers generally sits beneath a cabin bed giving you the space saving advantage of putting a sleeping unit and clothes storage on the same area of floor space.

The following is a selection of available cabin beds with plenty of information about each.

Ultimately your personal needs and taste in furniture are going to help make your decision for you, but knowing what is out there is the first step to take.
