Planning an efficient path like this through your kitchen, and based on the way you and your family use your kitchen, will streamline your life in ways you hadn’t even imagined. Those little details can add up to a big relief when you aren’t bumping into things and constantly moving back and forth to prep all your meals.
Another important aspect to consider when designing your living space is durability. Due to the high traffic your living room will likely experience, it is worth spending a bit more on higher-quality furniture and floor furnishings to realize extended use and not necessitate constant repair, refurbishing or cleaning. Choose fabrics that are both pleasing and durable. In addition, choose colors that transition well when you set out new décor items each season.

Flooring. There are many options for bathroom flooring so first consider our tips for selecting a material for your floors, which will help you choose what works best for your space. In general, larger floor tiles and patterns are subtle and better for small bathrooms. If you put ceramic tile on the floor look for a grade of 1 or 2, a water absorption rating of less than 7% and a coefficient of friction above .60, which are slip resistant and stand up to water. You’ll also want a more impervious tile for the floor because of exposure to water. Vinyl feels better on bare feet than ceramic tile and it’s one of the more popular flooring choices due to it being inexpensive and practical (safe, easy to install and maintain). One feature that buyers are looking for in today’s market is radiant heated flooring, which not only ensures warm feet in the colder months but also makes the floor dry faster, reducing the chance of slips or falls. It’s also energy efficient.
It’s good to think about resale value when making changes to a bathroom, especially because white and off-white are the most popular color schemes in that room. That said, your bathroom is a space that all of your guests will likely see at some point; so if you want to make a statement, this is the place to do it. Think about it the same way you would your kitchen backsplash: You want it to be timeless and clean, and to not turn off potential buyers.
A few key pieces of furniture: If your space has floor to ceiling windows and panoramic views, a lot of furniture will clutter your space and compete with the views. Try to limit your furniture to a few key pieces of furniture, such as a sitting chair, dresser, and bed for a bedroom. In a living room space, consider a couch, coffee table and a few complimentary chairs to pull the room together. To take advantage of the views, limit how much furniture is placed directly against the windows, as it will also make the room feel smaller.
