Benefits of a Kitchen Remodel

If your kitchen is outdated and you are planning a remodel, having it done the right way will not only make your life easier but it will also help to increase the value of your home.

Of all the rooms in your home, your kitchen is probably the one you travel through the most. If you don’t have enough space and your appliances are less than desirable, those visits can become stressful. Let’s face it, it’s there you prepare meals, clean them up and spend quality time with family members. If you aren’t able to work easily because you don’t have enough counter space or it get too crowded with more than one body, redoing the kitchen will provide you with lasting benefits.

Energy Efficient

Older appliances can do more than just not function properly, they can also be costing you more money on your gas and electric bills. Replacing them with new energy efficient models will give you access to the latest improvements and features while also reducing the cost of your monthly home budget. Not only that, if you purchased your home before you had children or when you were first starting a family the size of your refrigerator, microwave and even your oven may no longer be sufficient. Increasing the storage capacity of your refrigerator and upgrading to an industrial refrigerator will allow you to buy in larger qualities and stock up on frequently used items. This will also save you money on fewer trips to the store by having the ability to buy in bulk.

Style tips to steal from amazing cathedrals

If we look back at the history of the British Isles we can see how our vibrant and sometimes volatile past has shaped the country we live in. Just take a look at the ecclesiastical buildings that punctuate our urban and rural landscapes, they tell many stories of turmoil as well as acting as sanctuaries for the people living around them.

There are 69 cathedral cities in the UK. By virtue of having a cathedral they are therefore known as cities, and with that title a sense of culture and importance is attributed. So wherever you are in the UK it’s hard to ignore these bastions of power that spike on our skylines and have dominated our surroundings for centuries.

As a non-religious person I guess it could seem strange that I have such a love for cathedrals and find them so inspiring. On a subconscious level they may be influencers of my interiors taste. Whether that is a moody grisaille colour palette, a Renaissance style opulent table display, theatrical use of draped fabrics or love of pews and bench seating. Cathedrals seem to be even having a moment in popular culture, as a number of films set in medieval Britain (featuring cathedrals) are released this year. ‘Tulip Fever’ was filmed at Norwich Cathedral, amongst other settings, and will set more hearts on fire than Alan Partridge’s under pants. Released in February it stars actors including Judi Dench, Cara Delevigne, and Skandi beauty Alicia Vikander. Its sumptuous yet rustic interiors and sexy floral appeal are sure to inspire people to deck out their homes in a similar becoming way.

Contemporary Interior Designs

Renovation & Interior Design of a penthouse of 65 mq. / by Maurizio Giovannoni Architetto

Contemporary interior designs are perfect for anyone wishing to transform their home into a comfortable and welcoming abode. This interior décor style is growing in popularity mainly because of its versatility and ease of assimilation in any space.

Chances are you’ve heard about contemporary design but are hard-pressed to identify it from other interior décor styles. According to the dictionary, contemporary means belonging to or occurring in the present. Apply this definition to interior design, and contemporary refers to a style that is in vogue at any present moment. These designs are ever-evolving, and what might have been contemporary a decade ago is now outdated.

Contemporary interior designs are casual, sleek, and inviting. They give you the freedom to experiment and come up with a home that reflects your own personal style. Additionally, this style is incredibly adaptive, so it can blend well with others to create a truly unique interior for your home.
