When it comes to home improvements, sometimes, you don’t know what you’re letting yourself in for. After what would seem like a bright idea, a home improvement project may end up becoming more difficult than you had initially expected.
As one of Malta’s leading interior design companies and furniture boutiques, we have listed five solutions to the five most common interior design problems people have asked us to help them with.
Can I angle the bed from the corner of the room?
When trying to make everything fit in a small room, the question often arises “can I angle the bed”? However, angling the bed actually takes up more space and at LOFT, we wouldn’t recommend it.
While we don’t rule anything out when designing a room, for small spaces, we think it should be avoided.
How can I rejuvenate the kitchen cupboards?
We often get asked what the quickest and easiest way is to freshen up the kitchen.
From changing the tops and handles, to painting the cupboard doors, there are plenty of options to jazz things up.
For a quick, cheap and easy fix, just give the walls a lick of paint in another colour, or try our stunning geometric wallpaper by Coordonne.
What’s the best way to decorate a small space?
This is a big question but the most obvious answer is to use the small space to your advantage. First of all, don’t make the assumption that a small room needs small furniture. Well placed bigger furniture will be more functional and will make the room look bigger. Small things have a big impact in a small space, so don’t be afraid to add accents and create character easily.
Will everything work together?
When looking to kit out a room with all new furniture and accessories, it can be hard to imagine it all in your head, and to know whether or not everything will fit together.
So for this, try a professional’s trick.
Find pictures of all the items you want to buy then print them or cut them out from magazines and stick them all side by side on a piece of card to make a mood board. That way you can step back, look at the mood board, and know whether or not everything will work together.
How do I decorate with wallpaper?
Wallpaper is a great way to quickly spruce up and change the look of a room. With thousands of colours and patterns to choose from, wallpapering really is a simple and effective way to jazz up any room. At LOFT, we have a wonderful selection of Cole & Son wall papers. Pop in to take a look.
