Bring Fresh New Look to Your Home with New Furniture

Replacing old and worn out old furniture is essential part of maintenance. No furniture however good is the basic material made from or the high quality upholstery used can last forever. Wear and tear happens and renovating successfully what can be salvaged can only postpone purchase of new furniture as sometimes renovation may be more costly.

Replacing all old furniture may look daunting cost wise and effort wise also, but many a time planning for replacement of all the furniture in one room at least is essential to make the look homogenised and colour co-ordinated. Getting the same upholstery colour or wood finish will be very difficult over various periods of purchase.

If we manage to plan for similar color scheme, and style of the furniture, we can renovate the rooms separately one at a time without having too much trouble to colour coordinate the rooms. With attention to the wall décor colour scheme and furniture style and upholstery details, we can make the same colour scheme run through the entire house.

What are all the items you can add to make the house look like new? Adding an accent chair or an accent recliner to add to the seating arrangement can enhance the ambience of the living room tremendously. A beautiful coffee table or a console table also can add to the general look of the room nicely.

Bed frames of solid wood are most suitable for your bedroom. A good solid and sturdy bedstead will support the mattress very well and give long years of service without any problem. You can have relaxed and restful times that will make you ready to face another challenging day. A firm supporting bed can assure you a back-pain free sleep.

Entertaining is a great favourite activity with people who have a large circle of friends. Beautifully upholstered dining chairs can make the dining room so appealing and inviting impressing your guests and visitors and make the dining experience rich and very happy. Along with beautifully done sideboards and étagère, your dining room furniture may look beautiful.

Here are some beautiful furniture items from Councill. The beautiful dining chairs and table will add grace to any dining room. What a beautiful bed you can have for your bedroom! I am sure you will certainly like those accent chairs or sofa sets. Please check out what suits you and take it home!

Beautiful Wooden Flooring Ideas


Beautifully finished flooring can bring a touch of class and warmth to your home. Well-made flooring will bring focus on all the good points in your décor emphasizing a harmonious overall effect that can make a good looking home into a beautiful home. Wood floors add value to your property as well and bring appreciative praise from all the visitors.

What kinds of wooden flooring you can use in your home? Wooden flooring can be used indoors and outdoors and they can be solid wood, linoleum flooring or vinyl flooring; or you can have wooden floorings made of engineered wood or laminated wood both of which look very much like solid wood flooring even to the most tiny detail in look and feel.

Laminate flooring can look so much like a photocopy of real solid wood. It is a hybrid kind of a floor, a mix of engineered, hardwood and vinyl flooring. It is quite versatile and easy to maintain and stays clean. It is very economical and very quick for installation. But though it looks exactly like a hardwood floor, it is but synthetic and that is the reason many do not greatly like it.

Laminated flooring can be perfect for your home and office and they are much longer lasting than a carpet and easier to maintain. The finishes are stunningly varied. It can even resemble a stone floor and the top layer is always well protected with a clear protective layer that can stop any spills from seeping into the floor. It is synthetic multi-layer flooring.

It is important to have quality protective sealing as this will make the flooring look better for longer time. Spills must be mopped up immediately and water should not be allowed to stand for longer duration. Today laminate floorings are treated for environmental safety concerns and these do not release any volatile organic substances that may pollute the surroundings.

Engineered wood floors have multiple layers of ply that are effectively layered and pressed together with strong adhesives. The top layer will be a hardwood layer of veneer which is again glued to the core layer. These are more resistant to moisture than laminate flooring and even better than solid wood flooring. The top layer can be refinished for a quick makeover very easily and economically.

Marvellous Looking Mirrors Add Space And Beauty to Interior Décor

Elegant looking high quality mirrors add charm and style to your home décor. Living rooms, bedrooms, and bathroom – wherever you want to add a touch of class and extra trimming, ornately framed mirrors can come handy. Ornately framed standing mirrors, mirrors fixed to the wall, over a dresser or floating mirrors – all mirrors add ambiance and space to the room, making the room bigger and brighter – reflecting the available natural and artificial lights. Mirror is a wonderful way of adding detail and character to a room without overcrowding the room. Strategically placed mirrors can actually make a room more spacious and roomy. Especially if you place the mirror opposite French windows or open doorway, it can make the room look brighter and prettier with reflected ambient natural light and a cool touch of outside greenery that adds to the beauty.

We can select the frames of the mirrors to suit the décor of the room. If you have a beautifully furnished drawing room with jazzy luxurious Victorian furniture, an exquisitely ornate mirror in gold can look gorgeous. Think how beautifully a couple of wall bracketed lights or ornamental sconces on either side can bring out the beauty of gold-tinted leaf pattern crafted frame of the mirror adding to the beauty of the room! Another room to greatly benefit from mirrors is a bathroom. You cannot deny the importance of a good quality mirror in the bathroom over the vanity, washbasin and dressing area. The best mirrors for the bathrooms are illuminated bathroom mirrors. These do double duty in the bathroom – of providing extra ambient light and work as excellent reflecting surfaces for makeup, shaving, hairdressing and other personal hygiene needs.

Attractive Mirrors to Add Lustre And Beauty

Mirrors are very important part of home furnishings. After you have got the kind of furniture you want for the home, you can think of mirrors as additional accent features to make the home more lit and spacious. There are diverse ways you can use mirror to embellish your home and use the magic that mirrors make it happen with lights – both natural and artificial.

Mirrors have the effect of expanding space – almost doubling what is available. If one of the walls is entirely made of mirror, you will always feel that the room is bigger than actual due to the reflected space and more so if the room is well lit. Placing lamps strategically along the mirror will give an added effect to the dimensions, in a very pleasant way.

Though putting up decorative mirrors against the windows or patio doors is a very good idea, make sure that the mirror does not always reflect harsh sunlight – it can make the room rather warm and stuffy. If the window or patio door opens to a green area or a flower bed – that can make an aesthetic decoration with beautiful green leaves and flowers reflected in the mirror.

Today the trend is to keep large scale mirrors in the living room or bedroom just adjacent to the walls. Mirrors ornately decorated, or with etching done as borders are the hot favourites now. The antique finish frames make the mirrors look glamorous and really grand-looking. Keeping it along a free wall of living room adds character and dimension to the room.

Another particularly favourite place to keep a nicely framed mirror is on the mantle shelf or above the fireplace. This will form the focus of the entire living room and give a warm reflected look of all the living room furniture, decorative items etc. Reflecting the light and interiors, it will make the room look larger and warmer as well more gorgeous.

Huge mirrors kept hanging or against the wall are believed to bring good fortune to the home owner and family. Especially in dining rooms, they bring wealth and prosperity. Likewise in bathrooms they are the source of positive energy and as soon as you get up in the morning and go into the bathroom, the positive energy will charge you to manage the entire day effectively.

A seasoned Paper Stone product has a softer look and more glowing richer lustrous look and appears extremely elegant and attractive.
