    with the sofa The bookcase under the window can hold plants and fits well into the space I would put your dining room table and four of the chairs against the kitchen wall rather than putting it in the middle of the room This frees up a lot of space and gives the area a much more open feeling The table can be moved out easily away from the wall when you want to entertain The other two dining room chairs would be used at the desk in the study area and in the sleeping area They are functional for every day use but can be pulled up to the table when extra seating is needed The second bookcase on the side wall in the dining area can hold a small light with a mirror above it This is not only useful close to the entrance of the apartment but it could also be used as a small serving area for the dining room table There is plenty of open space for your floor plants and again it visually defines the spaces The desk works well tucked in the corner It s not only separate from the main living area but on the desk serves both The third bookcase at the bottom of the bed can house a small television and another plant if desired The chair is handy for dressing and clothing and can be stored in the lower part of the bookcase units Throughout the apartment this arrangement of furniture works functionally I hope this has been helpful Let me know if it works for you Sourced from http www sgsinteriors com Back to Article Listing Submit Your Enquiry Submit 1 ENQUIRY and receive Multiple Packages Quotations from All Participating Renovation Companies Select Property Type HDB Apartment Condominium

    should ask yourself are How will I use the room How do I want to feel when I am in the room Do I want it to relax or excite me Do I want the room as a setting for reading and listening to music or do I want to utilize the room for playing games and exercising Rooms even if meant for the same basic purpose can vary Bedrooms are a prime example All are meant for sleeping but a small child s room is often deco rated in primary colors because he or she relates positively to them at an early age The colors selected for master bedrooms are also as varied as the people who sleep there They may be subdued and soft bright and cheerful or dark and sensuous These examples point out an other important consideration Not only must the colors be appro priate for the function of the room but they must also suit the person who will be living there It is important that the colors selected reflect the various per sonalities One ambiance would be terrific for one person and terrible for another Once you have decided upon the function of the room thus perhaps eliminating the use of some colors and bringing into serious consider ation a range of others you set out to decide which would be most expressive of you and your per sonality Look around where you are liv ing now Is there a bowl a certain painting an area rug or a piece of fabric that you have particularly liked for a long time If there is analyze it There may be pattern and design but much more likely you re also responding to the col or Look through magazines and wander through stores Try to respond to the various color com binations used in furniture and clothes displays and ignore the actual styles It may take awhile to train your eye but try to react to the color only and not the pattern or design Is there a certain dress or pat terned scarf you find yourself wearing over and over Do you gravitate toward certain colors because they complement you A room should complement you just the same as any outfit you select to wear It is equally an expression of you You may admire a furniture dis play at a store a newly decorated room at a friend s house or a new dress that someone is wearing but that doesn t mean it s appro priate for you You may like many colors but once you have determined the function of the room and chosen those colors that not only suit the use but also reflect you and your personality the selection of a col or scheme becomes a lot easier and a lot less confusing Sourced from http www sgsinteriors com Back to Article Listing Submit Your Enquiry Submit 1 ENQUIRY and receive Multiple Packages Quotations from All Participating Renovation Companies Select

    t accomplish both ends but the solution is not an ordinary one To me this is an advantage because it s more in teresting I would either buy or have made two triangular shaped tables that can be used separately or to gether When apart they are placed in front of the sofa creating a space in which the angled ottoman can be used without interfering with the triangular tables The angles also align with one another to make it very attractive When placed together in front of the sofa and squared off chairs the two combine to form a large 42 inch coffee table for entertaining If you re able to purchase two triangular tables I would consider brass and glass If you re going to have them made a cherry or lac quered frame with a glass insert would be a possibility Regardless the glass is important to lighten the look so the tables don t appear heavy in the room Often in design what we per ceive to be a relatively minor prob lem because it s only one item in a room is actually a rather major de sign problem because its solution determines the success of the entire room Sourced from http www sgsinteriors com Back to Article Listing Submit Your Enquiry Submit 1 ENQUIRY and receive Multiple Packages Quotations from All Participating Renovation Companies Select Property Type HDB Apartment Condominium Private House Commercial Select Area Size 1 000 sqft Below 1 001 1 500 sqft 1 501 2 000 sqft 2 001 2 500 sqft 2 501 3 000 sqft Above 3 000 sqf Select Room Type Studio 2 Rooms 3 Rooms 4 Rooms 5 Rooms Above 5 Rooms Connect with us Renonation in Facebook Renonation in Twitter Renonation in Google Plus Renonation in

    which will make it far less noticeable Interesting fabrics also can be stretched over wooden frames and used as art or hung from wooden poles Any large splashes of color will brighten the room and detract from the dark paneling Lighting is crucial if the ceiling is lower than the standard 8 feel you may want to use recessed lights to maximize the ceiling height If the ceiling is close to 8 feet or more surface mounted fixtures can be used because there s plenty of head room Surface mounted fixtures give off more light than recessed but for combining function with aesthetics many people prefer a combination of the two Strip lighting under a valance all around the perimeter of the room is very effective and accomplishes two things It makes the room look larger because your eye follows the light to the corners c the room and gives an indirect even distribution of light throughout which definitely helps to counteract the dreariness If you have the appropriate ceiling height track lights may be considered to highlight a wall of art If you don t eyeballs or a similar recessed light that can be directed may be used Brightly colored carpeting would add a feeling of warmth and also help to counteract the dark ness Patterned carpet can be very striking as well as practical It adds interest and tends to hide any eventual stains Paneling can give a hard cold look You may want to accent the two windows as well as add some softness Consider extending a drapery on either side of the windows to totally clear the glass area Then hang a separate drapery from the bottom of the windows to the bot tom of the overdraperies It will not only make the windows appear much

  • Turning a room into a masculine study - Renonation.sg
    all possible stain the trim in the room and consider adding some molding around the ceiling line Medi um to dark stained wood adds a richness and would be very effective especially if you can incorporate some built in bookcases that would be stained to match Because deeply colored walls do not reflect a lot of light the artificial lighting in a room such as this is crucial Your eye instinctively follows light If you balance the light and try to position it as close as possible to the four corners of the room it will be the most effective Consider using brass lamps Not only is brass masculine in feel it also provides a nice contrast to the dark walls and wood Recessed lights in the ceiling indi rect lights in the bookcases and picture lights to shine down on the arty and sconces on the wall are all other lighting possibilities that should be considered You mention that you can t afford much in the way of furniture Be it now or a possibility for the future leather is always a welcome addition to a masculine study and again adds anoth er rich texture If leather is out of the question financially a wool or woolblend would be an excellent alternative choice for an upholstery fabric For the floor covering if you re fortunate enough to have hardwood floors by all means leave them exposed and use an area rug If you choose to install wall to wall good options are those that are patterned such as a plaid textured or tightly woven with no sheen Carpeting with a sheen finish tends to be formal and dressy This would not be the effect you want in a masculine study such as this Traditional prints oils and etchings would be appropriate art for the walls They do not have to be originals Nicely framed reproductions will produce the desired effect In a traditionally masculine room such as this I think draperies mounted on wooden or brass rods covered with a simple wood cornice or a tailored fabric valance are the best choices for your window treatments Wooden shut ters could also be considered and may work nicely in the room I would avoid using contemporary window treat ments Such as vertical louvers mini blinds or pleated shades If you think draperies are your best option don t select a dressy fabric such as an antique satin moire or damask A textured fabric such as a heavily stubbed linen or even a burlap would be far more in keeping with the masculine ambiance to the room A suitable pattern in a cotton or wool could also be a possibility The various colors patterns and textures used throughout the room play off one another yet combine to create a very interesting dramatic and certainly masculine aura for your husband s study Sourced from http www sgsinteriors com Back to Article Listing Submit Your Enquiry Submit 1 ENQUIRY and receive Multiple Packages
