Recently we have purchased a new two room set house. I am very excited about to decorate it. I want to use one room as drawing room and one as bed room. Can anyone give me idea that how can i decorate my home & kitchen. Which type of wooden work is good for room and kitchen.

Please help me and thanks in advance

Hi
Here you can find Top 5 home decorating tips :1. Remove all sheets from the beds, wash them in laundry detergent specially made for baby’s such as Dreft or Ivory Snow, this will have them feeling soft and smelling wonderful. After washing, hang your sheets out to dry on a clothesline or drape them over some bushes if you don’t have one. There is nothing sweeter than sheets dried outdoors.

2. Flowers, flowers, flowers. Put some fresh flowers in every room of the house, even the bathroom! Flowers don’t have to be expensive, you can go for a walk and pick some outside, make your own wildflower arrangement or pick up some inexpensive carnations from the supermarket. The flowers smell great and add an extra touch to every room.

3. Get a bucket of water and add a bit of wood soap like Murphy’s Oil soap and clean the woodwork around your home. Baseboards, doors and moldings are usually overlooked in day to day cleaning
and can really get dirty. Clean woodwork can brighten up the room considerably.

4. Take down all of your curtains, wash them and iron them with starch.

5. Put some scented candles
in each room and let them burn for a few hours. Food scented candles
like apple pie and vanilla give a homey smell, or choose some floral scents for a romantic feel. Experiment until you find the scent that suits you.

Hey congrats for a new home.As you said its a two bedroom flat, so guess its not too big, so remember not to over do it with many things. This will make your home look even more smaller. So for good quality wood with sanmaika, today u will find a huge variety of choice in them. Go for some good colors and not very very bright once.

Sapna,
First of all congrats for the newly bought home.I too have some tips for decorating your home.You can basically colour one side of the walls of the drawing room with a bright colour and the rest of the sides with some common light colour or even you can texture one side of the walls and then can highlight it with your favourite paintings or with your favourite photographs.If you are fond of greenery, but do not want any mess in maintaining ,then you can go for artificial flowers or plants which truly enhance your home decor and look colourful too.If you have kids or planning to have then you can get one of the walls of the bedroom painted in some favourite cartoon characters or if you' ve got the talent you yourself can paint a sea or a forest.But while you do all this just make sure you are not giving the place a cluttered look specially in the bedrooms because after a tiresome day it feels frustrating to go into a cluttered or a messy room which is actually meant to be peaceful.Regarding your kitchen go for durable,heat resistant and cleaner friendly tiles and flooring.Black granite stone is the best for kitchen platform and ceramic tiles are good.Talking about drawing room the furniture used in it,curtains,and lighting -all these are equally important.The curtains colour should match the colour of the furniture for an elegant look.Speaking about wood plywood is most durable and resistant too,specially for kitchen cabinets but you can use little more expensive wood like teak or rose wood for your bedroom cupboards or other finishings.You even have the option of wrought iron or fibre glass or other synthetic material.All the rooms should have good cabinets and sufficient cupboards to put up a cleaner look of your home.Good Luck.

Dining room wood flooring
Hi, I am changing my home flooring and have decided to go for hard-wood flooring for the drawing room. Which flooring would you suggest that looks really nice and attractive and is practical? I am leaning towards cherry wood. Is it a good pick or not? I look forward to a good advice.... - Sarla [View Message]
Hard wood flooring for your Drawing room
Dear Sarla, hi. Wow hard wood floor is a great idea. Cherry wood is a great choice! It comes in a rich brown to black color range. It will look great in your dining room and living room. You can throw in a rug under your furniture in the seating area. It will preserve your flooring and also look nice and classy.... - Ritika [View Message]
Cherry hard wood flooring
Hey Saral! You should know your wood. Cherry is much softer wood type and it reacts to sunlight as it has a tendency to become darker. Also since it is softer you would have to think about preservation. Do not use it in high traffic area with kids and pets as it will get scratched and ruined in time. Use it sparingly in dining rooms primarily. If your living room is not ov... - Krishna [View Message]
Hard wood flooring for rooms
Hi, what wood flooring should I use for the kitchen, hallways and rooms? They are obviously going to be in use all the time. The kids will run around, and we also have a dog. These rooms are high traffic areas and as much as I like cherry, I know it won’t be a good idea. What flooring should we use? Thanks for your help.... - Sarla [View Message]
Hard wood flooring for high traffic areas
Hi Sarla. I would suggest Hickory as a choice for hard wood flooring for the kitchen and other high traffic areas. It is harder variety of hardwood and it has grain pattern and color that will remain the same for years. It also has rustic smell that stays on and is usually well liked.... - Ritika [View Message]
Choices on Hardwood flooring for high traffic area
Hey Sarla! There are three more resilient choices for the high traffic areas. You can actually look into teak, rosewood and Brazilian cherry wood and see what prices and look suits you the most. Teak is from the deciduous variety and its natural grain is both water and insect resistant. Brazilian cherry is not cherry at all, it is closer to Mahogany. It comes in a rich bro... - Krishna [View Message]
