Decorating a home is a very professional business, and it is very difficult for friends who are decorating for first time. Learning decorative knowledge before decorating is especially important. Today I will summarize some practical decorating ideas.
1. Leave bottom of shoe cabinet empty
A shoe cabinet should be a must-have item in home, so no matter where shoe cabinet is, bottom should remain empty. 20-30 cm is normal, it is convenient to put on indoor shoes, such as slippers. This way, when you go home, you can put your replaced shoes in empty space and avoid clutter in your shoe closet.
2. Refrigerator suitable for a restaurant
For convenience, some people put a refrigerator right in kitchen so that it is convenient to take ingredients when cooking. However, if kitchen space is relatively compact and cooking will raise temperature, heat dissipation of refrigerator will be affected and service life will be shortened. It is most convenient to put refrigerator in dining room. The location of refrigerator directly in dining room does not need to be deepened, otherwise it will affect heat dissipation.
3. It is best to open a balcony in living room
If living room has a balcony, it is better to open it. Once balcony opens, balcony will become an extension of living room, which will be more open and atmospheric, and lighting will be better. After the balcony is opened, it is necessary to work hard on waterproofing, heat preservation and soundproofing.
4. No complicated ceiling
In order to create best visual effect, many people consider ceiling design. It's best not to choose an overly elaborate ceiling design because a complex ceiling not only costs more money, it also lowers height of floor, making the overall space look more depressing.
5. There must be a switch in kitchen outlet
There are many electrical appliances in kitchen, such as microwaves, induction cookers, ovens, rice cookers and so on. For safety reasons, these electrical appliances must be unplugged after use. Such frequent disconnection from mains is not only troublesome, but can also lead to loss of life of socket and plug.
6. The design without main light is fashionable and beautiful
It is better not to install a crystal chandelier on ceiling, especially since crystal chandelier is very large and hangs in middle of living room, which will seriously lower height of floor and make living room depressing. In addition, a crystal chandelier consists of many small light bulbs, if dust accumulates, it will be especially troublesome to care for it.
7. Create a light strip under wall cabinet
Communal kitchens have a light in middle of ceiling. When cooking at night, light is projected from back, and there will be shadows on workbench, which will affect cooking and cutting. Under wall cabinet, it is best to install light strips or other fixtures that can perfectly solve problem of shadows.
8. Cabinet must be installed up
Whether it is a bedroom wardrobe, porch wardrobe, balcony wardrobe, kitchen wall cabinet, etc. It is recommended that cabinet be upstairs, if there is a gap, this will not only affect visual effect, but also easily accumulate dust. If you're worried about being too tall, you might want to consider installing a top cabinet.
