Whisper Tungsten Rug | Review

Whisper Tungsten Rug | Review

With spring finally here our winter blankets and hot water bottles can soon start to be packed away. The sun is now starting to make a very welcomed appearance and we can now start enjoying the spring air and lovely sunshine.

With the sun shining brightly and all the winter warmers being packed away, we are now wanting to add colour, not only in the garden but indoors too. We are wanting to brighten up our spring and add sparkles of colour to our home to make it nice, bright and welcoming.

Interior Design

We are currently in discussion about our interior design at the moment as we are making plans to have a wall removed downstairs. This would help to add light to our living room as well as give us more kitchen space. Our kitchen at the moment hardly has any space and sadly isn’t designed to it’s full potential. We feel we could make much better use of the space to make it a much more useable kitchen. We do have our own design in mind and it is on our to-do list but other home projects have to take priority.

In the meantime we are adding splashes of colour in other ways to our home, by changing pictures that are hung on our walls to more brighter ones, adding bright spring flowers to a vase, changing our cushion covers and having a change around with items on display.

Splashes Of Colour This Spring

There are many other ways you can brighten your home and add splashes of colour to make it more cheerful looking and inviting. Adding a rug or two is another way. We recently added a beautiful grey rug to our living room from Land Of Rugs. The rug is called Whisper Tungsten and is a stunning colour.

Whisper Tungsten Rug | Review

The Tungsten rug has helped to add a splash of beautful colour to our floor. Helping our flooring look more refreshed. The rug has a superfine silky pile that gives off bright and deeper silver grey hues when ruffled or viewed from different angles. We have placed the rug in front of our fire place where the rug will get plenty of natural light so we will get maximum effect.

With the lights on low or with the light effect from our electric fire it adds a real luxury feel on the rug and to the room. The rug has 100% polyester wispy feathery pile, that also has a glossy finish to it. The rug is hand tufed and has a beautiful 40mm silky pile to it.

Land Of Rugs offer a wide range of rugs to suit colours, styles and budgets. Rugs to suit modern and triaditional tastes.

The Whisper Tugsten comes in a choice of six different sizes with prices starting from £39. We do have a 10% discount code to share with you. If you enter B2DISCOUNT with any order you may wish to make, Land Of Rugs will kindly reduce your order by 10% and you could also add an instant transformation to your home too, just like the Whisper Tugsten done to our home.

The Finishing Touches Every Family Home Needs

The Finishing Touches Every Family Home Needs

A few things to consider

Modern living is fast-paced, ultra-connected and always on, and our homes are adapting to our new way of life. Along with fashion and technology, the world of architecture and design is becoming influence by the new demands we place on our time. There are many aspects to this – from a trend towards more open-plan living to moving towards lighter spaces, to increasing ac installation to deal with warmer summers and even the clean lines of contemporary furniture design. If it’s time to bring a more modern look and improve your home, here’s where to begin…

Increase The Natural Light

Traditional, subdivided darker interiors with small windows have given way to everything light and airy when it comes to the design of our homes. If you have a chance to redo the floorplan, make sure you work it around sources of natural light, and consider adding Velux windows to open up the roof space as well. You can always opt for opaque glazing if you want to retain privacy but keep the natural light flowing.

Go Neutral With A Touch Of Drama

A lighter, brighter scheme needs neutral tones to really increase the sense of space, but lift these and add impact by choosing a beautiful, bright accent colour or two. A bold green or a petrol blue – even a bright magenta – all work fantastically well with neutral decor. You can also lift a neutral scheme using metallic accents which add interest or go for lots of different textures to achieve a calming yet sophisticated scheme.

Try Bare Floors

If you’ve always gone for fitted carpets in your home, ring the changes with a beautiful hard floor instead. Engineered wood floors, polished concrete or clean tiling look very chic but are also hard-wearing and practical, especially if you have kids. You can opt for underfloor heating if you want to keep your space warm. One seamless floor finish through an open plan space can look great, and you can add textured area rugs to seating areas to cosy them up.

Add Some Technology

The role of technology to help in running the home has exploded over the past few years, so if you’re planning an update then it’s wise to work a few tech updates in there. Wireless controls that connect to WiFi for electronics, appliances, heating systems, home security and lighting can all make life easier and can be integrated with voice control via a system such as Alexa. This approach can really bring the family home up to date and give you greater control over the household bills as well.

Use Natural Materials

The most beautiful contemporary home design makes great use of natural materials for a sleek finish. Elements such as natural woods, slate and stone finishes, quartz or granite worktops and leather furniture give a timeless refinement and are generally highly durable as well as looking amazing. Achieve a great look by mixing older pieces with very modern design for an effortless space that feels organic.

Bring Your Home Into The Modern Age

Bring Your Home Into The Modern Age

Ideas to help bring Your Home Into the modern age

Your home is your place of solitude. Your home is the place that you love to make your own, and one way we think you should be doing that is by bringing it into the modern age. We’re talking in terms of design, technology, and everything to do with the outside of the home. There’s just something about a really modern looking home that makes it feel fabulous, and it’s a look so many people are going for. But, unless you’ve bought a new build home, you aren’t exactly going to find this easy. The transformation might be big, expensive, but it will be one of the most rewarding ones that you have ever done. We want to show you a few simple ways that you can bring your home into the modern age, so have a read and see if you would like to do any of them to your own home!

Bring Your Home Into The Modern Age

Using Modern Decor

Modern decor really does have the power to change the whole feel of your home. Plus, it’s one of the cheapest changes that we’re going to suggest that you make. So, the main thing you need to think about is the colours you’re using, and the accessories that you’re putting in. At the minute, we think that modern is nice and bright, and the best colour to achieve that with is white. You could go for a white wall look, with one grey feature wall, and have grey accessories. It’s such a smart and modern look, and a lot of homes are going for it at the minute. All you would need to do would be to secure yourself some fancy grey wallpaper, or even just stick to paint, and change the colour of the carpet to grey. If you then go for grey furniture and silver accessories, you’ve completed the perfect look in either your bedroom or your living room! Plus, it doesn’t take that much effort to try and sort it.

Having A Modern Renovation

A renovation is a scary thing to a lot of you because of money, but once it’s done it lasts for years, and the value it can add to your home is going to be so good for you when you come to resell. Mccormack Plywood Kitchens is just one company you should check out if this is something you would be considering. If you’re going for something as big as this, you need to make sure that it’s perfect for you, and that it’s nice and modern. Most kitchens are, and you can visit a showroom to decide which one you would like. We like the darker coloured kitchens at the minute!

Get Some Modern Technology

Technology is obviously one of the best ways that you can bring some modern to your home. One of the coolest that we think you could try is home automation, because you can control your home from your phone. It’s not only cool, but super practical if you’ve left the heating or lights on when you leave the home!
