1. Living Room- 5 Types of gorgeous LIVING ROOM LOOKS!
Call it a living room, lounge or a sitting room, there’s no doubting the fact that this room serves the main purpose in the entire house, the purpose of providing a comfortable space where an individual can relax. Let’s take a glance at some of the beautiful looking living rooms that you may want to try out.
The Boho Chic Look
The Boho Chic Look is a playful mix of vibrant colors, textures, patterns and unique décor. With a piece of bold and beautiful furniture, playful patterns, plush cushions, and exotic home décor pieces, a boho-chic living room inspires conversations and makes everyone feel at home.

2. Kitchen- Top 6 Kitchen Layouts
A modern middle-class residential kitchen is typically equipped with a stove, a sink with hot and cold running water, a refrigerator, and worktops and kitchen cabinets arranged according to a modular design.
One-wall. Originally called the “Pullman kitchen,” the one-wall kitchen layout is generally found in studio or loft spaces because it’s the ultimate space saver. Cabinets and appliances are fixed on a single wall. Most modern designs also include an island, which evolves the space into a sort of Galley style with a walk-through corridor.
This efficient, “lean” layout is ideal for smaller spaces and one-cook kitchens. The galley kitchen also called a walk-through kitchen, is characterized by two walls opposite of each other—or two parallel countertops with a walkway in between them. Galleys make the best use of every square inch of space, and there are no troublesome corner cabinets to configure, which can add to a cabinetry budget.
An L-shaped kitchen solves the problem of maximizing corner space, and it’s a smart design for small and medium-sized kitchens. The versatile L-shaped kitchen consists of countertops on two adjoining walls that are perpendicular, forming an L. The “legs” of the L can be as long as you want, though keeping them less than 12 to 15 feet will allow you to efficiently use the space.
With an L-shaped layout, you’ll eliminate traffic: The kitchen will not become a thoroughfare because it’s just not logistically possible. Plus, you can easily add a dining space and multiple work zones to this layout. However, avoid this layout if your kitchen is large and can support other configurations, such as adding an island, or if multiple cooks will be using the space.
The horseshoe, or U-shape, kitchen layout has three walls of cabinets/appliances. Today, this design has evolved from three walls to an L-shaped kitchen with an island forming the third “wall.” “This design works well because it allows for traffic flow and workflow around the island,” says Mary Jo Peterson, principal, Mary Jo Peterson Inc. “You can get more cooks into the kitchen.”
A working kitchen island may include appliances and cabinetry for storage—and it always adds additional work surface to a kitchen. It can provide a place to eat (with stools), to prepare food (with a sink) and to store beverages (with a wine cooler). The island can turn a one-wall kitchen into a galley style, and an L-shaped layout into a horseshoe.
A peninsula kitchen is basically a connected island, converting an L-shaped layout into a horseshoe, or turning a horseshoe kitchen into a G-shaped design. Peninsulas function much like islands but offer more clearance in kitchens that do not allow appropriate square footage for a true island.
3. Dining area with furniture
The dining room table is an important piece of furniture in a home. It’s the place where the whole family gathers together to share a meal. It’s where we usually entertain and serve guests. It’s where we hold special parties, celebrations, holidays and other occasions.
Dining tables come in different shapes, materials, and styles, so there’s a lot to choose from. Generally, the shape of the dining table is the first consideration when buying one, since you’re going to consider what goes with your dining room space.
The most popular dining table shape, rectangular tables are preferred for its functionality and versatility. Typical dining tables can cater for 6-12 people, depending on length. Since rectangles can be extended indefinitely, it’s a more practical shape of choice.
The square is a simple shape for a dining table, and it best suits compact spaces or long and narrow rooms. It is typically seen in small and simple or modern-style houses. Small sizes that seat 4-6 people are advised to create an intimate atmosphere. Any square table that needs to accommodate more than that would take a lot of space, and opting for a rectangular table will be a better solution.
The round tables, like square ones, are ideal for small dining room areas. It’s the best choice if you want to create a more elegant and intimate atmosphere in the dining area, as the round shape helps diners feel cozier, and everyone can see everyone else as people converse with each other. Large round tables can be inconvenient and can occupy a lot of floor space.
The oval dining table provides a lengthier surface like that of a rectangular table but provides the elegance of round corners found in round tables. It’s a good table of choice for narrow dining rooms.
Freeform dining tables have unusual shapes and are typically custom-made. This type includes any tables that do not fit within the standard shapes. “Usual” freeform design tables are triangular, and these are a good idea for small or unusually-shaped rooms.
4. Bedroom- Types of bedroom
The bedroom is one of the most important places in the house but little did we know about the different types of the bedroom as regards its functions and styles. There are several different types of bedrooms with many design ideas available.
The basic design of each bedroom should suit the person occupying it while being functional and comfortable.
The type of bedroom and where it’s located is a major factor in the overall design and décor used when building and decorating the bedroom.
The master bedroom gives adults a place to escape the stress and troubles of the day. They’re generally the largest room in the home and often have an adjoining bathroom. Some are designed with sliding glass doors that lead out to a deck or patio where you can relax and have some privacy. From the classic to the modern design, the main things to consider are lighting, storage space, and comfort.
Guest bedrooms make it possible to have friends and family visit and stay in comfort and style. These bedrooms often have an adjacent bathroom to provide guests with more privacy. Guest bedrooms should have an empty closet with hangers and dressers where the guests can unpack and keep their personal items while visiting. It should also have adequate lighting, a comfortable chair, and a reading lamp. Many guest bedrooms are decorated in neutral colors to create a more comfortable and relaxing atmosphere.
Teens spend a lot of time in their bedrooms, so it needs to have an environment that reflects their personality. Most bedrooms for teens will have an area specified for work, such as homework. Sufficient lighting is important to provide the teen with a proper studying environment. A comfortable sitting chair for reading and studying is a nice touch. Adequate closet space and dressers are needed for personal belongings.
Most dorm rooms are small, but there are different types of dorm rooms. Single-sex dorms allow only the same gender for occupants and can have restrictions regarding visitors of the opposite sex. Special interest or themed dorms cater to students with the same interests. Suites consist of two bedrooms adjacent to a shared living space. Double dorms accommodate two people as roommates. Single dorm bedrooms are not as common but appeal to a private person.
Most homes have separate bedrooms for children. Because they’re smaller than master bedrooms, decorating can be a little tricky. When choosing the furniture for a child’s room, match it to the age of the child to prevent injuries. Avoid overcrowding as well. Kids also need plenty of storage space for toys. This lets them learn how to keep their room neat and clean when not playing.
5. Bathroom Design- Different types of bathroom
Bathroom Designs for the elderly
Bathrooms are an area of the house that can pose a great risk to the elderly and fragile. Luckily, there are features and accessories available to make the room safer, without having anything look out of place. Installing a large, walk-in shower with a seat and adjustable shower head can dramatically reduce the risk of slipping whilst showering, as can non-slip tiles. Grab bars placed around the walls by the shower, bath, toilet, and vanity can aid with sitting, standing and moving around the room, and are available in a variety of colors and styles to suit different bathroom designs.
Master Bathroom-These bathrooms are spacious, grand and often recreate the elegance and luxuriousness of a day spa. Master bathrooms are commonly used by two or more people, so the His & Hers style with double vanities, mirrors, and showerheads is very popular. A bathtub, separate shower, ample storage, and semi-private toilet are also found in the master bathroom; plus additional extras such as TVs and fireplaces, where the budget allows.
Powder Room-Although often the smallest of all the bathrooms, having a powder room can be extremely beneficial. These bathrooms traditionally feature a toilet, sink, vanity, and mirror; which makes them a fantastic inclusion in homes that like to entertain, as they provide an additional bathroom space for guests, or just large families requiring the extra facilities.
Small Bathroom-Traditionally, a small bathroom will consist of either a shower or bathtub, along with a sink, vanity, mirror, and toilet.
