Make the Most of Awkward Spaces
If your bedroom doesn’t have much wardrobe or closet space to speak of, you can take advantage of a bare wall or unused alcove to expand your storage. Built in wardrobes designed to fit a space, no matter how small or oddly shaped, maximizes your storage in an attractive way. Nontraditional areas to place your wardrobe include:
? Along a bare wall. Shelves, clothing racks and drawers take up little space along a wall. If you want the storage hidden, sliding or swing-out doors can blend seamlessly into the wall.
? Take advantage of an L-shaped bedroom by turning part of the “L” into a large wardrobe, complete with doors.
? If space is really at a premium, have built-in shelves or drawers installed beneath windows or into a bed platform to create custom wardrobes.

Modern House Design
Villa Bussum was designed by GROUP A, situated in a lush, leafy neighbourhood in Bussum; a small town near Amsterdam. According to the GROUP A : ” By using slanting walls and roofs the abstract building volume feels comfortably embedded in the landscape. A cut-out corner facing the street in front of the house, clearly indicates the main entrance. On the eastern side of the villa, a secluded garden and a second entrance can be found. A comfortable porch and a 15 meter wide panorama window face the garden, and double up as a transition between the villa and the garden at the back of the house. Both gardens in front and at the back of the house are linked to each other by a sloping path. This descending path extends itself to underneath the cantilevering villa, thereby providing garden access for the basement floor. ”

If you are making plans to build a new home or if you are going to be remodeling an older one, there are a wide variety of flooring options for you to select from. When you are deciding what type of flooring to choose for your home, you must consider much more than how it looks. While this is obviously an important factor, you need to consider the purpose the room will be used for.

You will also need to consider the cost of the floor, if it is comfortable to walk on and if it blends well with all of the surroundings. Here are a few flooring materials as advised by My Floor in Brisbane to consider for a modern home:
