4 Tips in Decorating a Living Room to Give It a Modernistic Look

    The living room is arguably the most important room in the house. It’s the place where the residents hang out. It’s also the most visible since it serves as a reception room for guests. Therefore, it’s important that it’s designed and decorated in a way that gives it a lively and vibrant ambiance. One way to do that is to give it a modernistic look. Below are some tips on how this can be achieved:             1) Take a minimalist approach Modern designs are often associated with minimalism. It often involves utilizing spaces and neutral colors like beige, ivory, white, black, gray, and taupe. A general rule in minimalist decoration is that the floor and ceiling should be as empty as possible. This means no usage of rugs, carpets, or large chandeliers. For sources of light, wall-mounted lamps can be used.               2) Use furniture made of shiny artificial materials like stainless steel, glass, cast iron, and aluminum There should be a balanced combination of these materials. For example, if the center table is made of clear glass, the chairs and other furniture should feature steel or aluminum designs. For couches, a regular sofa with plain colors like black, brown, red, or green would suffice. Looking for these items isn’t that hard. You can find them in a traditional Singapore furniture shop or you can search for them online.             3) Hang or display modern art pieces such as paintings and sculptures Modern artworks are very important features of home decoration....

A Piece of Furniture Advice: Wood Aftercare

Everyone loves to buy furniture in Singapore about as much as they love getting a new piece of wooden furniture in their house. The only problem with getting wooden furniture is that sometimes it is hard to care for. Luckily, there are things that one can do in order to protect their precious wooden furniture and to keep it looking new for a very long time. One of the more obvious solutions to keeping wooden furniture looking new for a long time is to clean it. Using warm water and an extremely mild soap should be able to do the trick. Something that is highly important to remember is not to soak the wooden furniture while cleaning it. It will ruin the wooden furniture almost immediately, which is the exact opposite of the desired outcome. Lightly cleaning the wooden furniture will definitely ensure that the wooden piece will continue to look as beautiful as it did whenever it was first bought.   Another thing that can be done to keep wooden furniture looking new is to lightly wax it after it has been cleaned with warm water and a mild soap. Applying wax to the wooden furniture seals in the newly cleaned wood so that nothing can break inside and ruin the wood. In addition to creating a barrier for the wood, the wax will also leave a glossy finish on the wood. This will make your furniture continue to look new all because of that clean, shiny glow that it will radiate.   Sometimes after laying a hot coffee mug or another warm item on wooden furniture, it can...

The Heart and Soul of Your Home

Think about what brings families and groups together. Food is often a central point for festivities and celebration. It has been said that the kitchen is the heart of the home. So, the dining room must be a home’s soul. Here are five trendy ideas for purchasing and positioning dining room furniture in Singapore. 1. The table Reserve half of the decorating budget for this room as it is the largest piece of dining room furniture. A quality table will outlast a cheaper product by decades. It is important to purchase a piece proportional to the space. If the room is massive, a larger and weightier table is appropriate. For a more modest space, consider a lighter table (in both colour and material) or one that is expandable. 2. Buffet  Guests, holiday parties, and family gatherings may be more fun at home. This will require storage space and extra serving space. While extra storage may go under-utilized, it is best to plan for it in advance. A large buffet table, repurposed dresser, or entryway table can serve the purpose. Keep the space casual and relaxed with a distinct colour or material. The buffet should coordinate without matching the dining room table. Buy furniture online to save time and money. This is especially helpful with accent pieces like a buffet. Simple measurements will help to ensure the most accommodating piece is purchased. 3. Rug  Pull guests into the soul of your home by using a rich and textured rug. This will serve as a centralising agent for the entire room. Balance the rug pattern or colour to coordinate well with other rooms of...
