Beautiful Summer Colour Combinations

Beautiful summer colours bring a room out of the doldrums and make you smile! With an eclectic mix of colours which radiate summer shades, living rooms become stylish interiors which ooze chic style.

Mixing and matching patterns is right on-trend and a great way to keep your living room bang up to date without having to spend a fortune; you can even cover the seats of your sofa and chairs in a completely different colour, pattern and type of fabric to create a fresh new look – a marvellous way to extend the life of your furniture along with embracing the trend of up-cycling effectively.

Add table lamps modern, bright and in a contrasting colour to add interest to a room and don't forget to add an abundance of fresh flowers to add the summer touch which can be picked from your garden! With the Chelsea Flower show in full swing this week it makes the quintessential flower inspiration easy to follow!

Mix stripes with floral fabrics, chevrons with blocks of contrasting plain colours within the same colour range and it's easy to achieve a beautiful room which is full of character and chic charm.

Stay True To Your Own Individuality

Mix and not matching creates a chic style which suits modern family homes and lifestyles. Stripes are known to make rooms appear taller which gives the illusion of more space and light.

With discount fabric warehouse stores online its easy to collect materials of all colours, patterns and fabrics to make an abundance of cushions to pile onto sofas, chairs and beds to create a homely look.

I think it makes a real change to focus on reality rather than dreaming of the impossible! Interior designers undoubtedly create great interiors, however for the vast majority these designs come with a hefty price tag – the trick is to use the ideas, tweak them a little and create your own interior style which reflects your independence and personality not your budget.

With little skill you can transform your living space into a haven rich with colour, pattern and chic style. Just remember to stand true to the style of your home and leave the homes of the rich and famous as places to visit in person or via the internet and pinch ideas from!

Be open to trying new styles, experiment and broaden your horizons so that your home becomes envied!

Innovative Ways To Brighten Your Kitchen Cupboards

We know that bold patterns are right on-trend this year, along with people being more pedantic over the choice they make for using sustainable materials. As such why not use bright bold fabric to cover your kitchen cupboards?

An inexpensive and very different approach to up-dating kitchen cupboards! With the ability to buy fabric online then are a whole plethora of beautiful designs and patterns to choose from. Opt for medium weight fabrics to enable you to simply stick it to the cupboard doors.

You should also look for fabrics which don't fray otherwise you'll have to turn a small hem all the way round which, unless you're very careful won't give you a nice flat and even surface edge. PVC fabric may be the best choice as these are also wipe clean, have a thicker density which won't be spoilt by glue seeping through.

Ask staff in a fabric warehouse for suggestions if you're unsure or drop their customer service team an e-mail for advice.

You have to admit this is an ingenious and inexpensive way of bringing a whole new trendy look to your kitchen! You could even use the same fabric for a table runner or make your own Roman blinds for a balanced and cohesive look.

Make Your Own Statement Headboard

Statement headboards are right on-trend and you don't have to be an expect in interior design or DIY to achieve the look!

All you need is a little inspiration from the designers by looking at interior design blogs, then browse for gorgeous fabric online and rustle up your own version, as long as the headboard is big and the colours you choose compliment your d├ęcor anything goes!

Use MDF board and simply cover it with your chosen fabric, a staple gun will come in handy or if you prefer a softer headboard to lean against stick a layer of foam to the board before you cover it.

To create a professional look to your bedroom buy enough fabric to make matching boudoir style cushions or use it to make your own Roman blinds, so that the colours and patterns blend together. However, don't forget the centre of attention should be the headboard, so don't go overboard an the accessories otherwise there will be too much competition for centre stage which can lead to a unbalance and unharmonious look.

To bring another of this year's trends into your bedroom opt for big bold prints which are ideal for creating statement headboards!

Have An Eye For A Bargain!

Having an eye for a bargain is hot on everyone's agenda, especially if you've just moved into your first flat or home. As we all know a bargain is only a true bargain if you actually need the object you're buying, it's not the same as a 'wish list'!

I classify window dressing as a necessity not a luxury! Therefore to get real value for money you need to scour curtains for sale from a discount fabric warehouse and snap up genuine bargain which will you can use, and if necessary re-use, time and time again.

Look for reversible curtains as these will enable you to change the look of a room as well as giving your neighbours something new to look at if you don't have nets or blinds!

Also look out for curtain linings thermal style to give you added comfort and help reduce heat loss via your windows, which in turn will help lower your fuel bills! Do a little savvy shopping and you'll find that you can be frugal without having to scrimp on having a stylish window dressing!

Opt for patterned curtain fabrics as these will not restrict your interior style as you'll be able to pick out colours from the fabric to use as an accent to create a harmonious look.

Let's Think Of A New Interior Design Style Name

Shabby chic remains to trend and it's one of interior design styles you either love or loathe! I think the problem may be that many people think the style is a good excuse for having an untidy home – just call it 'shabby chic'!

However, in reality shabby chic is it's own distinctive style which takes as much planning and thought as any other design style. It may be the case that a new name needs to be found for those rooms which are crammed full of clutter, somehow 'clutter chic' doesn't have the same ring to it!

Then of course there's the rustic look which is also used for many interiors which aren't truly rustic, just unfinished! As with shabby chic, rustic interiors also need to be considered carefully to achieved the desired look.

Maybe these unfinished homes should just be given the tag 'lived-in look'? as many people don't have the time, money or inclination to make the most of their homes.

Creating any style needs to be well planned and yet to achieve most you don't need to spend a fortune. Opt for bamboo roller blinds or wooden blinds cheap, cheerful and can create a stunningly simplistic style to windows.

E2. Nitrocellulose System
Atau lebih dikenal dengan nama umum NC. Jenis 1 komponen tanpa hardener. Sistem pengecatan NC menjadi standar minimal untuk ekspor, dikarenakan bahannya anti toxic /tidak beracun. Hasil akhir serat kayu tetap terbuka (open grain). Daya tahan terhadap goresan tidak begitu kuat. Furniture lama yang memakai pengecatan metode ini lebih mudah dikoreksi atau direvisi (re-finishing). Hasil akhir lebih bagus daripada melamine system.
E3. Polyurethane System
Lebih umum menggunakan nama PU System. Jenis 2K yang lebih terintegrasi. Memakai pengencer thinner khusus agar hasil lebih maksimal.
