My husband and I thought a lot about decorating.
So, in my house there are a lot of designer decorations that decorate house. Many people come to my house and think that these designs improve look of house, but in fact they have a more important mission: to solve pain points of house.
In this episode, I'll be playing game, and you'll definitely have a lot to learn.1. Japanese shoji door
At end of dining table is a shoji door that can be pushed and pulled. It seems that it was created to enhance Japanese style in house.
▲The night when shoji gates are closed
But its bigger effect is actually increasing lighting!
The house is a vertical hall, and balcony is far from dining room, so even in broad daylight light in this area is dim.
▲It was dark in restaurant with door open before renovation
But there is a kitchen ventilation window on other side of dining room wall, so a doorway was made in dining room, and design of shoji door was made so that light from window would enter the dining room. room.
▲Open shoji door and you will see a window
The reason door was chosen as shoji door is mainly because it is only door that can light through and impervious to people, which can ensure that this small space is relatively independent and makes living room looks more neat and tidy, and lighting can be taken into account.
▲Shoji Gate at daytime2. Locker with gas valve
You can see that there is a small cabinet on kitchen worktop of my house, many probably guessed that there are gas pipes and gas taps inside.
▲Gas valve, gas pipe cabinet
The goal is only to look good so that gas pipes and valves are not visible.
But it's actually still a knife storage area!
▲Knife stop next to vegetable cutting area
The main reason is that there are children in family and there are potential dangers. Also, when I first made it, there was an iron shelf for attaching pipes, so I just remodeled cabinet to "slim cabinet size". Then put knife .
The location is just near vegetable cutter, very convenient to pick up.3. Above sink in a dry place
Some people might think that sink in my house is turned into a countertop sink to look good.
But in fact it is not! And I don't like countertop sink either, because glass adhesive on countertop sink gets moldy after a long time of use, resulting in hygienic corners.
The real reason is that this dry area is dry area of the master bedroom, chest of drawers is connected to washbasin, height required for washbasin (80-90cm) and chest of drawers (70cm) Required height varies .
▲Tabletop sink + vanity
In order to keep both sides at a comfortable height, a mounted sink has been used.
In addition to preventing moldy problem of glass adhesive, my family also specifically used MS Anti-Mildew Adhesive. At present, it is better than ordinary silicone adhesive, but white adhesive still has a yellowing problem.
Ignore glass glue my husband made, it's like a dog chewing on it!
▲Before, during and after seam cleaning
Tips: To deal with pretty seams and yellowing of glass adhesive, you can use a bleeding cleaner, which is very effective. This is a trick that I have tried many times and cannot learn from others. The image above before, during and after cleaning, taken by original camera, pay attention to details.4. Built-in sink Cora
The second bathroom in my house is made from a one-piece Corelian washbasin, which, I must say, is very beautiful.
▲Integrated swimming pool Konali
But purpose of its choice is not only because of its beauty, but more importantly, The built-in washbasin can solve problem of glass glue molding at junction between overhead washbasin and lower counter basin.
It will be easier to take care of him.
▲The house mold removal photos have disappeared, this is a customer demonstration of mold removal gel I used for new house
Tips: The problem of mold on glass adhesive can be solved with a mildew remover gel. Previously used at home
This method can be used if you're concerned about this aspect, but if you've just decorated glass, it's a good idea to avoid moldy glass adhesive whenever possible.5. Wall-mounted toilet
A wall-mounted toilet in mouth is a symbol of beauty for many designers.
"A suspended structure can lighten up an entire space and make a bathroom look bigger..."
This is true, but people live in our house, so we are more concerned not with how beautiful wall-mounted toilet is, but with how clean it is.
Our family lasted a whole house because back of toilet wasn't cleaned. During general cleaning, creation of this dead corner of hygiene left a psychological shadow on me.
Behind wall-hung toilet there is no seam, no plumbing corners, no moldy gaps of glass glue on bottom, so we decided to use it.
▲Combined toilet spray and disposable toilet brush
Combined with a toilet spray gun and a disposable toilet brush, it can be absolutely clean and tidy.
The toilet sprayer is probably familiar to everyone. This is a high pressure water gun that can be used to flush toilet.
▲Disposable toilet brush
Disposable toilet brush, which may not be very clear to many, head of toilet brush is disposable, with its own cleaning agent, when cleaning, it is fixed on handle of toilet brush, after cleaning, throw it straight into toilet and wash it off, there will be no problem with smell of traditional toilet brushes, and storage space will be cleaner, just hang it up.6. Niche above bath
A niche that is more cohesive than a bathroom rack is also considered a more beautiful design than a bathroom rack.
But in fact, before making alcove, I knew that alcove is beautiful if it is done well, but fluidity is very high, and it depends entirely on skill of mason.
The reason I decided to do this is because: Since a wall-mounted toilet requires a new wall, it's not good to build a false wall, let's connect it to bathtub. At this time, a space is formed above bath, very suitable for an alcove.
▲The ratio of low wall of wall-hung toilet and niche
Since it exists, it is necessary to make sure that niche is arranged.
The craftsmanship of my master, 59 points, if you cut carefully, it will be even better.7. High bed
As with wall-mounted toilet, designer has similar concerns about high bed, which makes space feel lighter and more stylish...
I have to say that height of bed will indeed make it look neater, but purpose of my high bed at home is not for beauty.
▲Bottom of bed is key, don't mind Xiao Guizi who likes to be photographed
To make sweeper unobstructed and bottom of bed can be cleaned at any timeto avoid fluff and dust of house accumulated under bed, which will affect respiratory tract of family and reduce In addition, there are still people about to dig out trouble caused by cleaning under bed.8. Closing sand-colored half-wall with epoxy
This is a unique way to shut up in my family. If you look at whole country, this can only be done in my family.
▲Epoxy colored sand tile cover
The current state as shown in picture, mouth of half tile is closed very well, very beautiful. Let joints between tiles and wallpaper be covered with a strip of epoxy-colored sand.
But actually, before doing this, I had no idea about closure, namely because I tried to find various solutions, and found that 90% of them were closed with metal slats and wooden slats, and remaining 10 % are unreliable methods like painting and not plugging.
My family doesn't want any beading and I struggle. The problem with closing this piece, when I was making beautiful seams, I looked at remaining colored epoxy sand, and suddenly came I thought about epoxy The biggest feature of colored sand is adhesive strength that should not be weakened.
▲It is better to rub and will not crack
So I started drying it. To eliminate black edges, I insisted on rubbing for 3 hours, and finally reached current look. It is not only beautiful, but also waterproof, easy to clean and not afraid of cracking or falling off.9. White shower faucet
Like everyone else, white resin faucet caught my eye for its looks and uniqueness. But that's not enough to impress me.
▲In addition to two faucets in bathroom, I have a third white faucet at home
What really impresses me is thatthe white shower faucet doesn't show scale.
▲Photo from hotel where I recently traveled and stayed
The chrome and black faucet have a very annoying problem, i.e. scale is very noticeable and needs to be wiped down every day (the hotel is cleaned often and it's inevitable), while white one doesn't have this problem even if it's a week No chafing, no scale .
I have been living at home for over 5 months now and experience with white shower faucet is satisfactory and frequency of wiping has been reduced significantly.10. Enamel plate
It is obvious that general meaning of enameled plate is very strong, without seams.
A lot of people who love minimalist décor really like enamelled boards, but when my family made enamelled boards, you could tell they didn't consider look at all.
▲Enamel plate from my kitchen
Mainly because of two characteristics:
First of all, it is easy to clean, enamel chalkboard can simply be understood as small chalkboard you see in office, it is very easy to clean, so I placed it on wall behind stove. . Each time you finish cooking, wipe it lightly with a damp towel and clean.
▲Kitchen wipes for wiping stove
Additional word: it is highly recommended to prepare kitchen napkins for kitchen. Every time you finish cooking, wipe down stove, walls, countertops, and hood. This is a small amount of housework, but can guarantee a long-term cleaning of kitchen. This is much easier and more convenient than waiting for oil to solidify before cleaning.
Secondly, capacity, enamel plate itself is not magnetic, but is made of iron, so as long as there is something magnetic, it can be absorbed by it, which is a bit like a refrigerator, which means, what to store in kitchen after home, you can get rid of stickers and go in direction of magnetic absorption.
▲@Cola wants to add ice, love me to go to Xinjia Enamel Plate Storage
Okay, that's end of this episode about design treasures of my house. All of them are decorative elements that take into account both appearance and practicality. You can learn from them with confidence.
