Go for the satin finish and the luxe look that can be paired up with any colour scheme.

Satin glass is commonly used for decorative purposes. As the name suggests, the glass has a satin finish as it is chemically treated. The translucent satin glass is used in vases, lampshades, light bulbs and decorative art. The matte, opaque finish ensures the glass does not mark with stains, dirt or dust. The glass allows light to pass through, giving it an exquisite look and also obscures the light to provide privacy.

Reinforce your doors and windows with home security or safety glass.

Home security can be achieved by installing a security glass which can be laminated or toughened. It is a perfect safety solution as it is known for its strength and resistance.

Its use can be for any type of interior or exterior but it is low on durability. With 80 to 90 percent light transmittance, the clear glass is perfect for chandeliers, lamps and decorative art. You may need to use fade resistant film or sun control film on the glass for light control.

Say no to noise pollution with the double glazing acoustic glass.

Acoustic is a laminated glass with outstanding noise reduction properties. The acoustic glass is gaining popularity due to the massive increase in road traffic.

A warm ball of light through your windows 

Well-lit rooms with ample amount of light penetrating through the windows will help you jump start your day. While placing your bulky furniture pieces, ensure you don’t block the natural light entering the room by keeping it near the windows. Sheer curtains can add to the beauty of the room by gently allowing the light to pass through, thereby, creating a diffused effect.

Home design trends 2017

Thachcher_Coverpg (2)-min

Here are the top home design trends you need to know.

Give your kitchen a shiny, golden tone.
The satin brass finishes in your kitchen will give an elegant look in your cooking place, with its mix of gray, stainless and brass accents, like a very large piece of jewelry in your kitchen. You will have a beautiful cook place with a nice ambiance. The faucet will give you a feminine element with the curve of the hood and the brass accented star-like knobs.

Transform your life with voice activated assistants.
These technological marvels connect seamlessly with smart devices like Chrome cast, Nest and Philips Hue, Wemo, Honeywell, Nest, Samsung Smart Homes. You can use your voice to set the perfect temperature or turn down the lights or power up the hot tub and restyle your life with technology.

Go artistic with your vanity cabinets.
Indeed, thinking outside the square can turn up. Make use of your old antique bureau, old file cabinets, old crockery unit, and hutch, a second life by just adding a sink, faucets, and plumbing. These vanities are stylish and artistic and will give your bathroom a sophisticated look and elegance to your bathroom.

Stop planning and start storing
However, when smartly planned, storage can do a lot more than storing your dishes, cookware, and food. Free up your room with a multi purpose storage wall and start freeing up your counters and work spaces.

Have some fun with the classic color
White and Off-white goes well with each other and it is a beautiful color combo that suits the bedroom. It adds richness and gives a soothing effect when we enter the room. After all, we all long for a warm tone when we enter our room in the evening after a busy day. This color echoes positivity all around the room and goes well with old white and lime white. Using variations in white can add textures and layers and gives the room an ethereal feeling.

Add some nature to your life.
Green is a positive shade. It also symbolizes passion and vitality which is a perfect color for our homes. Fresh green plants are wonderful choices to go with. You can either choose a money plant or a croton to decorate your home. You can also choose a dark wooden floor and give a contrast look to your kitchen. Introduce colors through accessories with beautiful rich green fabrics and

Multipurpose laundry room.
Laundry rooms are about washing clothes, but they don’t have to be just for that. Special amenities can add a multi use dimension to the room. This type of laundry room nails all the desired elements- folding table, hanging rod, and plenty of storage. Warm gray walls, wooden countertops, and canvas laundry baskets will create a relaxed, welcoming vibe. A beautiful pull out ironing board is in a drawer beside the washer and dryer. And the drawers above the laundry baskets are actually drying racks which are a very useful element. This type of laundry room has a lot to like: plenty of storage and folding space, lots of natural light and soothing finishes.

First impressions are everything.

  • Nothing freshens up a room like a bunch of flowers — they’re aesthetically pleasing and will keep your entryway smelling wonderful. If you feel investing in fresh blooms every day is too much for you, go with silk flowers or ornamental plants that will have the same effect, but last forever.
  • Add a personal flair to your interiors. You can have a beautiful piece of art, or idols and figurines to give your entryway a porch look. You can even have a small gallery wall to showcase your memories. Also, place your antique collection and flaunt your collections. You can add on decorative wall mirrors which will give your home positive vibration.

Bathe in the glory of nature
Having a refreshing bath is all that we need and having a bath in outdoors is the best way to refresh yourself but it’s not so very easy to bath outdoors every day. So, to make yourself feel more comfortable and refreshing you can set up your bathroom with a glass door effect with complete privacy. This type of bathrooms can offer you a wide range of advantages and easy way to install it by adding on geometric mirrors, Zen spa, and unique tubs. There are plenty of different variations you can try including a freestanding bath area and shower area, and simple design accessories that suit your exterior.

The space-efficient units are roomier than ever
For smart home automation, counter depth fridges are the best choice to go with.
Refrigerators have gained popularity in these years, that is good for food storage but not for space efficiency. Counter depth refrigerators are the best choice for having a streamlined look. Take a look at the measurements and the design which goes well with your kitchen space.

These were just a couple of our top picks with a lot more where these came from! Make sure you choose the ones that suit your style and home space best. After all, it only works if your habitat suits your habits!
