Interior Designs that Suit your Lifestyle http://www.excelsiusinvestments.com/2017/06/01/interior-designs-that-suit-your-lifestyle/ http://www.excelsiusinvestments.com/2017/06/01/interior-designs-that-suit-your-lifestyle/#respond Thu, 01 Jun 2017 16:34:53 +0000 http://excelsiusinvestments.com/?p=25 Continue reading "Interior Designs that Suit your Lifestyle"]]> Home is the place where you put all your guards down to have a wonderful time alone or with your loved ones. It’s a four letter word that should be spelled as COMFORT. This is your castle where you know where the things you need are, and where to do what. Here is where you can laugh all you want or cry your heart out without worrying about how you’d look like. For most people, though, being at home could be a little frustrating because the moment you open the door, all you see is a messy, unorganized space that won’t let you relax for even a minute. But worry not, because we’ve gathered some tips so you can finally say ‘There’s no place like home!’
When it comes to interior design, it’s better to list down your priorities according to your lifestyle before rummaging the web for awesome ideas. Without ‘The List,’ you’ll blindly choose designs or furnishings that look impressive, but might not actually fit your needs.

Kid-friendly Homes for Families
Remember how your mom would always scream and say, ‘Why aren’t you running out of ways to ruin the house?!’ Well, it’s almost always inescapable to have an expensive home decor broken by a playful, growing toddler. Unless yours is a Boss Baby, you cannot really lavish your place with the delicate kind of decors. Make your home as kid-friendly as possible by going for low-maintenance choices, such as metal vases over the fragile ones, iron photo frames without the glass, wipeable rustic-looking paint, wooden window blinds over long drapes, stain-free vinyl or leather fabric, and easy-to-clean hardwood or linoleum floors. Instead of white couches with a soft fabric, go for the most durable furniture that you can afford. These pieces will last for several years even with daily exposure to your hyperactive kids.
It’s also advisable to have a designated play room where all their toys and play equipment are. Let the kids have a say on the decors you’ll put inside so they can feel a sense of ownership. This might make them stay inside that room for as long as they want to play, while your fragile and breakable decors in the living room are free from any of their abuses. Better leave a huge space at the center too where they can be as active as they want to be. Don’t forget to have an arts and crafts area for your future Da Vinci or Michaelangelo.

Home Decorating for Single Ladies
For a typical working gal who wants to have all the conveniences a home can offer, better be honest with yourself about what you need and can maintain and those that you cannot.
It’s always a wise option to go for a pantry-style kitchen with not much appliances. If you’re the type who doesn’t really have time to cook, all you need is a toaster, a small stove, a fridge, and that magical microwave oven. Opt for a huge table that’s near all the aforementioned appliances so you can easily get what you need without having to move a lot.
The living room is where you can get all stylish when choosing what you want to put in. Turn this area into one that reflects your personality. Put that trendy bookshelf where you can display your collection, and that classy or pastel-colored floral sofa you’ve been drying to have. Hang the photos and decors you’d love to see on a daily basis as you relax from a tiring work day. No matter what your style is, keep the area clutter-free and elegant.

Functional and Practical is the Way to go for Most Guys
Yes, these are the top two words that interior designers hear from men who’d like to have their homes ‘fixed,’ not actually decorated. According to an interior designer from San Francisco, USA, Nicole Hollis, sleek and minimalist is the general theme that guys choose for their personal spaces.
They prefer a peaceful and soft ambiance to their bedrooms, without the unnecessary furnishings that would just eat up space. Beds should be filled with cozy and comforting cushions that will make you want to hop in after a long day. Neutral colors are also preferred over playful or bright ones. Guys would always go for furniture and decors that will make their living more comfortable, practical, and efficient. That could mean many a television at the foot of their bed, a clutter-free computer desk, and microwave oven on top of a food-filled refrigerator.
There you go. These informative and practical tips for home decorating will make your personal spaces truly suitable and liveable for the lifestyle that you have. Keep in mind that your home interior design should adjust to your needs and wants, not the other way around. Should you require more professional advise, seek out hueconcept interior to mend your house. They are hardcore designer that bring different ideas to the table. Having say that, be sure to look for a designer that understand your requirement.

Remodelling Prep Tips That Can Save You From a Lot of Stress http://www.excelsiusinvestments.com/2017/06/01/remodelling-prep-tips-that-can-save-you-from-a-lot-of-stress/ http://www.excelsiusinvestments.com/2017/06/01/remodelling-prep-tips-that-can-save-you-from-a-lot-of-stress/#respond Thu, 01 Jun 2017 16:29:19 +0000 http://excelsiusinvestments.com/?p=21 Continue reading "Remodelling Prep Tips That Can Save You From a Lot of Stress"]]> Sometimes in life, we tend to look for something better or for a new discovery that can jumpstart our excitement. It can be a new phone with a larger memory, a faster car that can seat your whole family, or a higher position at work that can improve your lifestyle. In fact, the same can be also said for your house. Whether you’ve given it a lot of thought, your home could use some remodelling to infuse new life in it. Furthermore, remodelling your property can increase its level of comfort and value. But before you take that leap of faith, here are a couple of tips to ensure your remodelling plans go off without a hitch.

1. Research, research, and research more

Just like with every major life decision, you have to do some research first before you set anything in stone when it comes to your remodelling plans. For starters, you may have to invest some time on the internet for quality remodelling ideas you can adopt. You can start by opening up your Pinterest account and check out a whole world of remodeling concepts that may entice you. Plus, you can also ask your friends and loved ones if they have any remodelling tip they can contribute. Even if they have none, they can give you a lead on where to source out that rustic bookshelf you’ve been eyeing or a contractor who can install wood floors in your home. In all of this, don’t forget to list the ideas that you like, contact numbers of remodellers who can help you out, or the places where you can get the materials you need.

2. Set a realistic budget

We all know remodeling a house can really empty your bank accounts faster than you expected. And if you’re not careful, you’d end up bankrupt and swimming in debt before you know it. You don’t believe us? Well, here’s a report on the average cost of home remodelling back in 2016 to help you decided. So before you commit to any remodeling plan, get that pen and paper out first and list down your budget. Write how much money you have, how much money you need, and the total expenses you’re gonna incur. Furthermore, give yourself some financial leeway and increase your budget for any unexpected expenses. In this way, you’re not gonna be surprised when something needed comes along you way.

3. Consider your family and your lifestyle

Now, before any remodeling work should be done in your home, think carefully if this project will cause any noticeable difference for your family. For example, turning your kids’ playroom into your home office can be really disappointing for them but it would most certainly add income to your household. That’s just one of the many examples of things that can happen, and you should look at all angles to ensure your remodeling plans will help you live better, and not the opposite.

4. Secure your belongings and valuables well

So, you’ve finally found skilled contractors who can accomplish your remodeling plans huh? That’s all good and great but do remember, you don’t know these people well enough to entrust the safety of your home. Better create a working schedule wherein you can be there to monitor them as they do their thing. Keep all your valuable items and documents in a safe, or a place that cannot be easily accessed by anyone. Plus, you can also move your furniture and appliances to a certain part of your home so they won’t be affected by any remodeling work being done.

5. Make the necessary adjustments

As we’ve tackled earlier, it’s almost safe to assume there are gonna be adjustments made when it comes to your remodeling plans. When that happens, do not freak out and panic. If you did your homework, you should have accounted for these adjustments when they do appear. Nothing is set in stone and in this case, you should also be prepared when the material you want needs to be shipped or an additional contractor needs to be hired to finish the work on time. In all of this, just remember not to go over your budget, and be reasonable with the remodeling choices you make.
