Got you thinking? Good! The bedroom is one of those personal living spaces that sometimes can create peace and tranquility or restless and sleepless nights. Of course, there are many reasons why either of those circumstances develop but if your bedroom isn’t comfortable, it’s likely you’ll wake feeling just a bit off each morning.
Sometimes a remodel is necessary to help create the space and desired atmosphere. Other times a few simple elements can change the mood in your bedroom. Let’s take a look at some of the important components that can affect the quality and quantity of sleep you get each night.
Organization. One of the most important aspects to achieving a great night’s sleep is to have a room that’s well organized. The more clutter in your room, the more likely you are to go to bed with a busy, over-worked mind. If you can create space and a clutter-free bedroom, you’ll find you’ll be resting easier at night.
Start by evaluating your bedroom. Are you using your bedroom as an office too? If it’s a rather large area, that might be okay. But if it’s a small bedroom, having the office in it can be a huge distraction. It can cause you to work too late and to literally take your work to bed with you.
If you have a green thumb, you’re going to love this. A growing gardening spot is the rooftop garden. Whether you’re limited on space or you just want to make the most of an area that’s privately high above everything, the rooftop garden is creating the ideal environment for horticulture.
These rooftop gardens are sprouting up on roofs and balconies throughout the country, making an impressive statement about how important gardening is to homeowners (even those with only little land).
Rooftop gardens range from an entirely vegetated roof cover where the plants or the engineered soil actually take the place of a regular concrete, tile, or shingle roof to a small quaint garden that’s planted in containers. Watch this video to see how one homeowner had Marrokal Design & Remodeling create a rooftop garden for his home in Pacific Beach. Read the full article…
Sometimes it may feel like there just isn’t enough room in a home. That’s when adding some extra square footage via a room addition can be ideal. But what happens when that’s not possible? Is it time to move? Not necessarily.
Creative remodels can add space to your home without actually having to add square footage. It’s more than just re-arranging the furniture that makes the home feel and look bigger. Instead it’s about space-saving designs and architecture that create open and flowing floor plans. It’s also about designing and using spaces in multiple ways.
Formal Dining Room Duals As Homework Area. Today, many people are using their formal dining space for other things, especially if they have a kitchen with an eating space. This formal area is often neglected most of the year except for those special occasions. If that’s the case, turning the dining area into a more universal space can be a great option to allow it to be user-friendly throughout the year.
Some homeowners are opting for doors that close off this area so that it can be used daily for a homework room and still be available for those occasional special gatherings. Adding custom cabinetry for the space to store more necessary items helps make this room more valuable.
Guest Room Becomes Media Center. Guest rooms are another part of the house that can add a lot of size when used for more than just the infrequent house guest. Often these rooms sit empty until visitors come to town. Ideally, your guest room can double as a media or entertainment center. Using an air mattress, pull-out couch, or wall-mounted bed to replace a regular bed will give you more space in the room. Read the full article…
Choosing paint for the inside of your home is a very personal decision but the colors you choose will also affect your guests. Ever walk into a home and immediately feel a little unsettled or overwhelmed? Or how about the opposite effect–you suddenly feel calm, relaxed, and eager to sit down and visit for a while?
It’s likely that it’s more than just the homeowners who are making you feel one way or another. Color psychology is the study of the effects of color on your physical and psychological state. Sound a little new-age? It’s not.
In fact, several ancient cultures such as the Chinese and Egyptians used Chromotherapy or colorology as a method of healing through holistic or alternative treatment. For instance, the color red stimulates the mind and body and is supposed to increase circulation while yellow is supposed to stimulate the nervous system and purify the body. Blue helps soothe any illness or pain. Orange is thought to increase energy levels and heal the lungs. And shades of indigo are still used to help treat skin problems.
So,understand that as you’re going through your remodel, you might not want to turn each room of your home into a “color pharmacy”. Instead, you’re just simply wondering “does this color look right in this room?”
