Windows and Storage

Windows and Storage

Today we will talk about two very important design aspects of a home, Windows and Storage..Almost always forgotten and abandoned in the initial plans and set aside as we are to busy picking the kitchen countertops, bath-tubs, tile finish, and other very immediate home decor items we should pay much more attention to these two items.. Windows can make or break any design and incorrectly placed windows or not enough can make any project seem dull and last minute changes are very expensive.. 
The same is true for storage.. We are all very busy planing out minimalist house with no clutter... problem is where do we stick all our belongings... Where do the kitchen cleaning supplies go, the food, the mob, broom, etc.. You have all seen today's kitchens, no room for anything yet alone all those items.. In regards to storage we need to get smart and hide it all over the house everywhere there is a hole or nook, make it storage.. Thats the key.. If not your modern contemporary minimal house will soon become a junk yard.. 

Windows.. Very important.. 
Window, is access to air and light in the house. Size will be tailored to the needs penghawaan and natural light. Window is also part of the house which provides an aesthetic element in building a display home. Based on the opening system, the model is divided into a fixed window windows shutter windows, windos blinds, windows with shutter open in the horizontal axis That. When creating a window should be planned from the beginning of planning the house. Making any demands specialized expertise. The windows in the room with a view or an interesting sight such as the dining room, living room and the bedroom was the one who is often styled to appear more beautiful. Beautify the window by adding curtains, drapes vitrase, blinds at the window should also consider many factors. If the view outside was nice and interesting, leave the window open without the addition of curtains or blinds. Choice of cafe-style curtains that shut down half of the window. Thus, the outside scenery can still be seen, but privacy in the room is maintained.
