“I've been following your site for quite some time and I find your ideas incredible. And now the time has come for me to ask for some advice. It is about my living room's arrangement. The space in question is rectangular shaped with a door on the bottom left corner, facing a fireplace located 3 meters across the door. On the fireplace's right there is a patio door. A second patio door is located on the right side of the rectangular space and on the left side are the kitchen and the dining area. Arranging furniture is very difficult due to the patio doors and the fireplace's position. I hope my description will make sense to you. Thank you in advance and I'll be waiting for your advice.”
In the living room, I have two grey sofas and I am not sure about the color of the rug and the draperies. The living room is rather small and I believe that a grey rug could make space look even smaller. One wall is lilac and the others off-white. I would really appreciate your advice, I feel kind of lost... Anna
At first we should underline that grey color is the king of neutral colors and it practically matches with all colors. So your real dilemma is the other colors of the room. Unfortunately, you don’t give any information about the style of the living room, your preferences, the brightness of the room and the type of furniture.
Now in relation to the rug and its color, we think that you should match it with the sofa. If you want to highlight the rug then opt for a darker tone but if you want to highlight the sofa opt for a lighter tone. Although we don’t know the exact tone of your sofa’s grey, we think that you should choose a lighter tone for the rug. Grey sometimes becomes depressing. An interesting combination could be a light beige rug with the grey sofa.
If you are planning to remodel your bathroom, then a series of tasks might be necessary, such as the dismantling of floor and wall tiles, the installation of new cabinetry or even the complete rearrangement of sanitary fixtures. However, a total makeover is not always easy or possible as it also depends on the plumbing system and on the position of drainage.
What factors affect bathroom layout, especially the position of toilet, sink and bathtub.
In relation to the arrangement of sanitary fixtures there are several restrictions such as the plumbing system. For example, if you want to relocate the sink from one a wall to another you should first check if there are water and drainage pipes in the new wall. In case there are not, which is very possible, then you’ll need to install them. This means extra time-consuming tasks such as tile dismantling and pipe installation and also the increase of the total cost. In relation to the toilet drainage, it is also difficult to change its position.
Another factor affecting fixture layout is the shape and dimensions of the room. For example a long narrow space might need an arrangement that will make the room look more proportional and square. You should also check for storage solutions in any recesses.
What you must consider before changing the bathroom layout.
A total bathroom makeover is not always easy or possible. Every solution has pros and cons that should be always weighed. First and foremost you need to analyze the available space and how do you use the bathroom. Then you should focus on your needs and check if the current layout is suitable for them. Think for example what bothers you in the current bath, what do you consider problematic and what needs to be changed. How many times you enter the bathroom and use the amenities? Do you need more storage? Does the bathtub occupy a lot of useful space? What amenities take place in the bathroom? Would you replace the bathtub with a shower? Would you like to have a double sink instead of a single sink?
The industrial heritage consisting of the multitude of industrial infrastructure during the Industrial Revolution and the years after played a prominent role in contemporary culture and society development as a cultural object, which needs recognition, preservation and development.
Cork is a renewable material and during the last years became an increasingly popular flooring product. Cork flooring is resilient, therefore provides a comfortable surface to walk upon or stand for many hours. Moreover, cork surface will return- or bounce back- to form after being weighted. If for example, a piece of furniture causes an impression on cork, the floor will be restored to its original form after the removal of the furniture. In general, cork is a soft and flexible material with resistance to several stresses, even to high heels. Other popular resilient materials are vinyl, linoleum and rubber.

The previous weekend 15th-17th May 2015 buildings of great architectural interest opened their gates to the public in Athens. Thus, the public-not only residents of Athens but also visitors - was given a great opportunity of guided visits by volunteers in private and public buildings. Not only had they had the chance to realize the meaning and the value of architectural design, but also to find out more of Greek architecture. The city and its buildings appear different than in everyday routine.
