TOP IDEAS

Homes+ (Australia) - - EXPERT ADVICE -

When creat­ing mul­ti­task­ing spa­ces, think about the light­ing. Usu­ally a mix of over­head, mood and task light­ing is best. When selecting kitchen stools, look for ones with a small back­rest; if this space is be­ing used by chil­dren for home­work it’s bet­ter in the long run. A comfy sofa bed pro­vides prac­ti­cal seat­ing as well as in­stant guest ac­com­mo­da­tion. For a cup­board-turned-home of­fice, choose a chair to fit un­der the desk so you can close the doors. When in­stalling blinds or cur­tains, con­sider how the space will be used. They should com­pletely block out the light, as well as ad­dress sound and heat/cold to en­sure they work well for a va­ri­ety of uses.
