Ceilings are often forgotten in the scheme of decorating a room, but that square footage has so much design potential to offer your space. Molding, trim, wallpaper, and paint techniques can add tremendous interest to the room. Crown molding will give the illusion of height if you have a lower ceiling. In rooms with higher ceilings, we often use tray or coffered ceilings to make the space cozier.
An unpolished, nontraditional color spectrum and aesthetic is changing the way we think about premium quartz surfaces. When Caesarstone introduced the Metropolitan Collection in May, it broke through barriers, effectively reflecting the authentic textures of oxidized steel, poured plaster, and raw concrete—an industrial-chic style that is a prevalent movement in the design world today.
“The Metropolitan Collection is a breakthrough in quartz surfacing," said Nick Harris, Vice President of Marketing for Caesarstone US. “Our product developers were inspired by the unique effects of industrial manufacturing, resulting in new designs that capture depth and movement and bring to life a sophisticated urban aesthetic with the functional benefits of Caesarstone quartz.”
The junk drawer is the quintessential organizing project, and while it's definitely helpful to get all that random crap under control, there's another space that gives us way more anxiety: the kitchen cabinet under the sink. First of all, we find ourselves having to dig around in there way more often than any junk drawer. One day we're in search of a fresh sponge, the next it's the bottle of Windex. Second, the square footage is much larger, and therefore the mess is much larger. "The main reason it gets gross under the kitchen sink is because it is both a deep and high space. That’s a perfect storm, organizationally speaking," says Ann Lightfoot, founding partner of professional organizing company Done & Done Home. So, how can we whip the space into shape and get back to living our lives? Ann and pro organizer Laura Cattano broke it down for us.
