Fawnia Leroux Exterior, 2017-05-05 09:08:29. Somehow, the idea of living in a concrete house doesn’t sound that appealing and that’s because of the cold nature of this material. Concrete is not warm or soft or pleasant to the touch like wood is for example and that gives it a bad reputation in a certain sense. But what we don’t take into consideration in those cases is the versatility, durability and in a way also the beauty of concrete. All of these are characteristics which can be exploited in great ways by architects and designers and these dream concrete houses are perfect examples.

In the case of this residence in Barcelona, Spain, the most important element was the landscape and thus the views. The house was built by Isern Associats on a very steep site which allowed it to frame magnificent views of the valley. A limited budget was also one of the challenges that the architects at JRKVC had to overcome when designing this house in Slovenia. The client wanted the house to be small and to have a design inspired by traditional rural architecture but with an ultimately modern character. The glazed facade with two tiers of windows is a defining element of the design.

For example, where will you keep all your plates, the knives, the spice jars and what about all the other items you’ll be needing? You can’t just throw them all in one place. The key to a practical and functional kitchen design is being organized. A pegboard can be a very useful thing in the kitchen. It allows you to store lots of things like pots and pans close at hand. You can also customize it however you want and, for example, add shelves. It’s a relatively easy DIY project.

Cork trees regrow every nine years, while trees such as maple take up to 30 years or more to replenish, thus using them are kinder to the environment. In the kitchen, cork works well when set against modern colors, such as lime green. They provide the perfect background for a bit of color saturation. Although it might not be considered eco-friendly at first glance, mounting your kitchen faucet to the wall can make a huge difference in the layout of the room. It allows for more space, which is especially advantageous in smaller kitchens. This maximizes your efficiency, allowing for more people to work at the sink simultaneously, which can also save you water.

Play with bedroom paint to create a pleasant atmosphere: maybe paint just one wall a different colour or make the ceiling stand out. Then, when work is finished, you can enjoy a good night’s sleep in your perfect bedroom. Sleigh beds have curved or scrolled footboards and headboards, resembling a horse-drawn sleigh, hence the name. Made from different materials like wood, steel, iron, aluminum, rattan or leather, sleigh beds have come a long way from the early design days of the first half of the 19th Century.

This colour scheme is perfect for the current cold months. In direct contrast to the previous colour scheme, we now have a cool palette. You can’t deny how elegant and classy this kitchen looks. When going for a frosty feel it’s best to use highlights rather than an overall shade of pale blue.

A lighter shade of bamboo works well to make the kitchen appear light and bright. Volatile Organic Compounds (or VOCs) are toxic gases that are released from wall paint, so a good green move is to choose paints that are low or completely free of VOCs. Also choose building materials such as VOC-free glues and adhesives to ensure a healthier kitchen. Using what you already have to update your kitchen can be a simple way to jump on the eco-friendly bandwagon. Mismatched chairs look trendy and fun, while breathing new life into items of furniture that you did not want.

Store your collection somewhere convenient like on a shelf in the kitchen island or somewhere handy where they don’t clutter the room. Having a wine rack in the kitchen is very practical. Of course, you’ll want it off the counter. A great idea is to have wine storage compartments in the island but you could also find some space for them in the cabinets or even inside a wall. It’s very useful to have dedicated drawers for things like knives, utensils, dishes, spices and other things which come in packs and sets. It makes it easier to be organized and the kitchen also looks more clean and professional this way.
