Room dividers are more than simple accessories to temporarily divide a space. They are modern. They are functional. They are stylish. And they can solve many design problems within both small and large spaces.

A Fresh Take on What to Do With the Basement

Most basements have at least one or two chaotic aspects. It is the afterthought space in the home and typically in desperate need of organization, structure, and style. Let’s sort through the piles of sports gear, art supplies, and tools and take a look at 5 fresh ways to create a beautiful, efficient, and usable basement.

1. Create a Modern Multifunctional Retreat

Basements usually take the form of one big room. This structure resembles a modern home’s open floor plan, giving you flexibility to divide the space into functional zones that work best for you. Do you need a lounge area? Workout space? Dining room and bar for entertaining?

We love accent chairs. This one element can make a statement, liven up a space, define the mood, and create interest. It is also a way to be a little daring and take a risk without creating a permanent solution. If it doesn’t quite do what you thought it would, take it away and try a new style.

Let’s look at types of accent chairs and how they work to enhance your space:

The Dos and Don'ts of Wicker and Rattan

What is wicker? What is rattan? Is there a difference?

Simply, rattan is a plant material used in creating furniture and accessories that are classically designed and perfected by a handmade organic feel. Wicker is inspired by nature, but can be any woven material. Therefore, some wicker is rattan, but not all rattan is wicker.

Why Your Bedroom Needs a Theme

When you hear “themed bedroom” does your mind jump to a child’s space filled with Disney characters? If you answered, “yes,” you are not alone. Some people believe taking a theme beyond the preteen years creates a showy over-the-top look. We disagree. While not as overt as having Mickey Mouse featured on your wall, the best bedrooms revolve around a central focus. A well-designed theme makes the room feel personal, cohesive, and well-planned.

Let’s explore how adult bedrooms benefit from themes and how you can create your own unified space for style, uniqueness, and comfort.
