Improve the look of your kitchen table with simple tips

Friday, April 27th, 2012

Kitchen decor tips, kitchenYour simple and plain kitchen table could be good when it comes to utility but it is hardly of any use when it comes to adding to the décor of your kitchen. You may change the plates, the glasses or even the tablecloth but that would not serve the purpose if the table were plain and boring. You can use the table runners for getting a new look. All you need to do is place a tale over the runner and see how wonderfully it works for the look of your kitchen. If you have a boring table, try to decorate it with nice candles. Nobody will pay much attention to the boring table when there are lovely candles decorated over it. However, if you have invited your guests for a casual gathering, you may not want to go with the candles, as they would be too loud for the occasion.

How to create that cozy spot in your home

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

No matter how comfortable our own house is to us, we always want to provide out guests and visitors the same feeling of comfort, they should feel welcome from the moment they step in.

In order to create a cozy spot in your house, choose the corner of the house that you think can be the coziest. After the spot has been chosen, curtains can be added in earthy colors. The side of the wall near the cozy spot can be painted a different color as well. Colors play a very important part, avoid bright colors as they excite the sense other then calming them. Rugs of different sizes can be thrown around along with a bunch of colorful cushions for that laid back comfortable feel.
