Home Living : February 7th 2012
6 HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, February 7, 2012 MB BEDS AND BATHS THE B ALL OF SELLING BATHROOMS AND BEDROOMS CAN MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE Janita Singh A beautiful bedroom can help sell your home. PILLOW TALK When it comes to doing up your bedroom, comfort is everything. So when selecting your mattress, make sure to do your homework. Use lighting that is soft and subtle and helps create a relaxing atmosphere. And do not forget the linen and pillows. Good quality cotton is nice to sleep on and allows the air to circulate freely, and the higher the thread count, the higher the quality. EVERY room in your home can affect how easily your home sells. But the two areas that can either make or break the value of your home are the bedrooms and bath- room. While the kitchen is considered the heart of a home, a bathroom and bedroom play equally import- ant roles. And just like the kitchen, bathroom design has come a long way. The current trend is to create a spa-like bath- room, with fixtures that are stylish and high-tech. The designs can be as individual as you like, but clean, sophisti- cated lines and an emphasis on creating a relaxing space are popular trends. It is important to keep in mind that the style you choose and the materials used are consistent with the overall theme of the house and architecture. As well as the aesthetic el- ements, it is also important to consider what advantages fixtures bring to any bathroom. Today, there are so many available to suit every mood, style and pocket. Besides the shape, baths also come in different materials and colours, but it is always wise to choose one that not only comp- lements the overall design of the room, but is easy to clean and maintain. Getting the bedroom right is important for health and happi- ness. Making the right choice about the bed and bedding means the difference between a good night's sleep and bags under your eyes. The bed needs to suit your decor and be suitable for the scale of the room. Make sure everything works in harmony. LOUNGEROOM GET A SOFA THAT SUITS LIFESTYLE SOFAS are great and no matter what your priority is when it comes to buying one -- be it comfort, making a statement, practical seating or ideally a sen- sational combination of the lot -- no living room is really complete without somewhere welcoming to park your behind. Getting a sofa that works with your lifestyle and reflects your personality shouldn't be a prob- lem because the choices are endless. Red hot tip: Buy modular sofas. These are popular and work well in almost all living spaces. Go for quality over fashion. When it comes to finding the right piece to suit your lifestyle, you should think about how you live and where you want to place your sofa. For example, if you live in an apartment and have limited space, you may want a light piece. As for fabrics, a natural fibre mixed with manmade is great for durability. Another trend in sofas these days is to have a chaise for luxurious lounging.
