Ray of light!

Well designed lighting is essential for a comfortable and attractive home. We love redecorating our homes, in big ways and small. However, before venturing into fancy lights, it is important to take all the practical aspects into consideration. Whether you are creating a lighting scheme from scratch or rethinking your arrangements, assess your space and decide before calling in an electrician. Use a trained electrician for rewiring and to discuss plans thoroughly before work commences. Your options range from ambient lights, ceiling mounted down lights, lamps, concealed lighting, task lighting, pendants, chandeliers, wall and recessed lighting. It is also important to devote time to finding products that complement furnishings and other style elements in your room.

Choosing the right flooring can be a daunting task. First, there’s the mind-boggling array of options. Then, there’s the fact that floors make an enormous visual impact on your interiors. On top of that, you have to consider the punishing wear and tear they’ll be subjected to. So you have to decide what kind of flooring will best suit your home’s style and practical needs.

Before you get started, know what’s available in the market, so you get a fair idea of the price points, the finishes and the brands on offer. You can even refurbish your floors without going through the hassle of breaking up the existing layer and installing something new. Simply opt for tile on tile options that you can lay out on the existing surface.

Your choice should depend on a number of factors, like the room’s specific requirements for moisture proof, non-slip, scuff proof, water resistant or another specific type of floor. Consider the traffic that the room experiences – you must consider the durability before you make your choice. Opt for large slabs/tiles for your living areas. This will help lend an expansive feel to your home. Darker colors can look dirty sooner than lighter ones – while unusual colors like blues, pinks and greens add punch.
