Using glass: If you are worried about privacy but also do not want the partition to obstruct the natural flow of light, you have a number of options in textured glass, frosted glass or even stained glass that can be cut in the dimensions you need to carve a beautiful partition wall.

A well-defined space serves as much utilitarian value as aesthetic. There might be many instances where you might have wished that a particular area in your home could have been utilized better for want of a clear demarcation from the rest of the house or space. Here are a few tips to create beautiful partitions:

Using MDF boards: Lovely cutwork or jaali work on MDF boards can make for some lovely partition walls. Not only are they easy to create but also score high on aesthetics. They can be mounted on a shoe-rack or a side-board to give that increased area of privacy and demarcation between a foyer and a living or even between a living and dining area.

Using beads: Though a little expensive option depending on the kind of beads used, this can add notches to the glamour factor when used as a partition. Beads come in different varieties such as crystal, steel, bamboo or even plastic. These beads when woven into strings can be used as curtain partitions.

Using glass: If you are worried about privacy but also do not want the partition to obstruct the natural flow of light, you have a number of options in textured glass, frosted glass or even stained glass that can be cut in the dimensions you need to carve a beautiful partition wall.

Paint the right way-Icon Homz

Looking to paint your home and not sure how to begin? Read on for some simple and easy steps that will ensure you land up with a beautiful home and satisfied soul.

Level the imperfections away: Paints do not automatically cover up all the blemishes or unevenness of your wall. In fact they do tend to highlight these, if any. So, make sure you do your groundwork and level off your walls with a putty and primer before you begin the actual painting.

Invest on sample colour cans: Colours do have a way of seeming different on the shade card when compared to the wall. This could be because of the way the room is lit and also with the number of coats. Hence, make it a point to invest in sample cans to try out a shade in the room before deciding.

Equipment matters: If you are going the DIY way, keep in mind that equipment is of prime importance. It is advised to use brush-strokes in the corner areas first and then roll off the rest of the wall to have a uniform appearance.

Amount required: The area of your room along with the number of coats of paint that you want will decide the amount of paint required. Although the local hardware shop can guide you on the exact amount, it is better if make your purchases in batches.

Paint-finish: Decide before hand what kind of finish you’d like to have. The kind of usage also plays a deciding factor. For example you might want to go for a glossy finish in a kid’s room because they are more durable and also easy to clean and have a matted look for your outdoors.

So, now that you’re equipped with valuable tips, we wish you a happy and colourful journey towards a beautiful home.

Dealing with a small living room-Icon Homz

While a large house might figure in most home-seekers’ list, getting your dream dimensions to fit in to the budget and other criteria may not be possible for all. So, if you’ve landed yourself a smallish living area and you are worried about how you’d entertain guests, help is here.

Small spaces, if furnished correctly, need not be a deterrent to host large gatherings. The trick is to use the correct size, colour and placement of furniture and other elements.

Keep the furniture lines clean and easy on the eye: Ornate designs, tall back-rests, a big-frame, all of these spell disaster in smallish areas because they make the space looked cramped up. Instead, go for lighter looking furniture, with lower arm-rests, and delicate design.

 

Use of lighter colours: off-white or white gives a feeling of expanse and can make the room appear larger. Use a combination of light and accent colours for the walls and the upholstery.

Choose right kind of furniture: Your sofa set should not overwhelm the space in any way. Sectionals work wonders for small spaces. Sofa-beds, ottomans that can double up as coffee tables, stools that can be tucked away under the centre table, all are ideas to utilize the space in accordance with the number of guests.

 

Arrangement matters: Having an easy moving traffic is very important when space is sparse. Place furniture in such a way that it does not obstruct the movement.
