There are many things to consider about your home when it comes to decorating, but the size of space is without a doubt the most important. Knowing the dimensions of your rooms is crucial, because only then can you start to consider the size of the furniture you will choose, what colours will work on the walls, and the types of materials to use
Obviously, if the measurements of your home are a little on the small side then decorating might pose a bit of an issue. However, it's not impossible! For example, a kitchen that only measures a few square meters can still be decorated with good taste and style. So if you have a small kitchen, don't be discouraged! Check out these 15 innovative kitchen design ideas and take note…
Technology has come in leaps and bounds in the world of architecture, making it easier than ever to conceive of a project before turning the first sod. While we used to rely on two dimensional plans, and the often beautiful sketches of architects, these still required a lot of imagination, and the project didn't always look the same once executed as it did on paper. These days using three dimensional rendering we are able to get a reliable and accurate idea of what a house will look like once built, and that's exactly what we're looking at today.
We have the plans here for a fantastic family home, including the floor plan and rendered images, that will show you in great detail the vision of these ambitious architects. It's a classic two storey suburban home, with a pitched roof and a gorgeous backyard, but with some decidedly modern twists that make this a really special project. So join us as we take a virtual tour through this exciting home!

Townhouses have the dual appeal of living in the city while also retaining a strong family-based atmosphere.

Today, we are excited to bring you a project which showcases just such a beautiful compromise, with an inspired townhouse in the neighborhood of Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. As if living in New York isn't a dream on its own, this stunning home would suit the tastes of a wide array of people in many different settings.
