What are basic points to design kitchen cabinets?

An important element in kitchen is cabinets for more storage space and hygienic clutter free life. The lower cabinets and the overhead cabinets should be planned according to the requirement and the space limits. Space plan the kitchen to turn it well arranged, ventilated with ease of movement . Tall units and loft will ensure more storage facilities. Furnish the overhead cabinets shutter with see through plain glass with inbuilt sensing spot lights so that friendly usage is ensured. Thali baskets, corner units, drip trays can improve the utility aspect of each space when used sensibly.

Basic requirement for bedroom design.

FWhen you start decorating a girl's room, you should involve her in the design choices as every girl will have opinions on the things that will make their bedrooms special. One of the quickest ways to change a decorating scheme is to change the colors you use in a room. Fresh paint livens the room and can change the character of a space quickly. You can start from a nice pastel pink color and add details in darker hues. Unlike more formal living space in your home, when you are decorating a girl's room you can have a lot of fun with the art and accessories.

How can one choose different colours to account for perfect combination and ambiance?

Select three shades of the colour you want: where you think you want to be, and one shade lighter and one shade darker. Do this with paint, wallpaper, or fabric swatches. Put the samples in two places: next to the window and in a darker corner. Look at them at different times during the day and at night. Then make your decision. In general, it's important to have continuity throughout the entire house. Use one or two colours throughout the house, and then mix in other accent colours. That gives continuity, but at the same time allows the various rooms to have different personalities.

Interior Lighting

Lighting design is a process. It is the process of integrating light into the fabric of architecture. Regardless of the space to be lighted— a bank, a church, an office, a gallery, a restaurant, a store, a classroom—and regardless of the light sources available for use, the process is always the same.


Knowledge of the basic principles of electricity is necessary for understanding lighting circuitry, electrical distribution, power consumption, operating costs, switch control, and dimming control.


Almost all lamps require a method to curtail glare; in addition, many need a method to modify distribution.


Lighting design is a process. Specifically, it is the process of integrating light into the fabric of architecture.


Perception of the world around us is based not on the quantity of light entering the eye, but on the quantity of contrast.


Because the sense of sight is contrast sensitive, the brightness contrast of a space determines its emotional impact.


Specifying the direction and distribution of light in a space yields the desired brightness contrast.


Color is not a physical property of the things we see it is the consequence of light waves bouncing off or passing through various objects.


The goal of daylight design is to provide visual variety with controlled brightness contrasts.

Light Control

Directional sources, commonly called reflector lamps, such as AR, MR, PAR, and R lamps, have built-in optical systems. All other electric light sources require external devices to modify their distributions in order to be useful in architectural applications.


It is impossible to see a foot candle. What is seen is luminance, which is a function of the amount of light falling on a surface and the reflectance of that surface, modified by the surrounding conditions and adaptation of the eyes.
