Decorating a Home Office/Spare Bedroom

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips

The term spare room is kind of a misnomer. For most homeowners any extra space is a luxury that is quickly gobbled up and turned into something: a playroom for the kids; a guest room; a home office.  This room shows a smart way to combine a home office and a guest room into one stylish space.  Home office/bedroom doesn’t mean shoving a desk in the corner of the guest room or squeezing a queen size bed into the office.  This room is a true multifunctional room that is the best of both.

 

Rather than having a big bed in a small room, a convertible day bed/sofa is used.  While this won’t accommodate two guests, it will work for a single guest.  During the day or when the room is not being used as a guest room, the sofa provides a comfortable place to lounge and relax.

 

The work desk is also very stylish and can be cleared of work papers and laptop for a guest’s visit. Having a few file cabinets or a bookshelf with doors to hide work and home finance paper work would optimize the storage in this space. The storage ottomans as coffee table are portable and easily moved around the space.

 

Neutral colors make this space guest friendly.  The patterned area rug adds interest and coziness.  A few pieces of art on the walls would help warm up the space and keep it from feeling too sterile. Even personal family photos would be nice hung as a gallery wall.

Creating Floors that are Hard to Forget

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips

As guests enter a home, they automatically look down at their feet to ensure solid footing over the threshold. The first thing they will notice in your home will be your floors. As their eyes move up towards the interior of your home they will notice how the furniture, decorations and walls complement your flooring motif.

Carpet, vinyl, laminate, wood, tile, marble or granite are all common flooring choices. These basic flooring options can be individualized to achieve a variety of looks. Multiple types of flooring can be integrated to create a modern look which changes seamlessly between rooms. Rich wood tones with accent pieces can be used to highlight architectural features of the home. Tiles can be laid to create intricate patterns which lead the guest’s eyes through the room. Comfortable carpet laid in the family room can create a relaxing, comfortable place for your family to sit and enjoy each other’s company.

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips

Now that many people are more aware of being environmentally conscious in their day to day life, selecting the right materials for the home has become a key issue.

  • It’s a natural product
  • It has an enduring life cycle so it doesn’t have to be replaced
  • Recyclable
  • Can be reclaimed

There is also the added bonus of stone flooring being easy to care for and maintain. Take a look at a few beautiful natural stone floor options that Ambassador Floor Company offers:

Flooring that Flows from the Inside Out

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips

To create a seamless flow in your home that reaches beyond the inside walls to the surfaces of your outdoor spaces you simply need to do one thing, take the floor outside. Just because the roof stops, does not mean the flooring has to! It is the perfect way to stylishly blur the lines between indoor and outdoor space.

Why would someone want to blur the lines between indoor and outdoor space? Great question. Because it visually expands the space and can provide a sense of freedom. When the floor just visually keeps going it creates a feeling of more room to roam and explore.

 

Are you interested in having a floor that blurs the lines between the indoor and outdoor spaces in your St. Louis area home? Ambassador Floor Company is here to help! Just give us a call at 636-728-1600.

 

 

 

 

4 Tile Patterns to Dress up your Floor

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips

Once you have selected new tile for your home remodeling project, the next task is figuring out how you want the tile laid out. Just to get you started, here are four ideas featured on Houzz.com.

1. Checkerboard. Whether you prefer the classic black and white or two other colors that go with your interiors, you can have them set straight or on the diagonal.

 

2. Running bond. You may have heard this pattern called brick or offset pattern. The tiles are offset by half the width of the tile.

 

3. Basketweave. The woven effect on this floor is created with squares and rectangles.

4.Pinwheel. Also called Hopscotch, this pattern is made by a small square tile that is surrounded by four larger ones.
