Interior design: A comprehensive study through the years

From as long as the beginning of time, we have been a race that loves decorating. A home isn’t a home without a touch of interior design to it. Every creation has been influenced in one way or another. Art, music, and architecture have been some of the greatest influencers for interior designs.

Interior design through the years.

Through the years, interior design has changed. With technology influencing our ideas strongly, the current trend is a little on the negative front. From the ancient cave paintings to the flute columns of the early Western civilization, design elements are strong and clearly evident.

In the past, there has been a clear distinction in style and taste. Now, however, these styles are no longer that prominent and obvious. Every area imitates a certain pattern. These make things stand out in almost a comical way at times, while at others, they make a clear mark on the place.

The growth of interior design as a discipline is a showcase of changing outlooks, mindsets and preferences of the people. The fusion of architecture and interior design concepts of the East and the West is increasing and giving birth to trendy, ergonomic designs. Art and tradition are coalescing too. Modernity in design is an incessant exploration for the next best thing.

The trends that are followed now

Bringing the outdoors inside is a trend that is being strongly followed now. Using non toxic materials, health friendly designs and colours that induce a happy environment are the go to things for this season. Now, less is more. Clutter is eliminated. The spaces are left free for thoughts to flow.

The most important aspect of interior design is to remember where you’ve come from. Using influences that have a strong historical impact call for originality in designs. Every home is unique and when the interiors are done just right, the uniqueness is strong. Visit: www.theelevate.in to get a glimpse of how you can design your interiors the way you’d like them.

Designs that give you the most out of small spaces.

Living in small spaces can be tough. Sometimes, it becomes even harder to find furniture to decorate your small spaces with. To make the most of your tiny home or space, it’s important to seek out purposeful pieces of furniture and accessories—i.e. items that are both space efficient and multi-functional.

Making the most of small spaces.

Furniture pieces that work double shifts are always a refreshing and welcoming for small spaces. From the footrest in the corner to the bench on the side, there are several ways in which you can use space to your advantage.

Having a lamp in the center of your room increases the illusion of space. The light from the lamp brightens up the area manifold and makes it look larger than life. When you live in house that’s not large in the technical standard of the word, you want to make sure that every room looks beautiful.

In cases like this, there is a strong need to make sure that the kitchen is not just a utilitarian. It becomes the center of your home and everything you do in it, becomes essential. An antique lamp and a gorgeous piece of furniture make this statement for you.

Increase the functionality of spaces around your home.

Every nook and cranny in a home becomes a way to further beautify the spaces around you. Use small side tables instead of big coffee tables, which eat up the space inside the room. Being able to move things around makes you feel less beholden and cramped.

Everything makes a difference in a small space. The transformative ability of light works wonders in a small space. The dancing lights give the illusion of a larger space than what is already there.

Every home is designed keeping in mind the amount of space that is available. At Elevate, we understand the limitations that space imposes on you. Keeping this in mind, we have every kind of furniture you could need to make your home beautiful. Visit: www.theelevate.in for furniture that fits in both large and small homes.

Create decorative niches with custom furniture

When you’re looking at buying furniture, it’s always a good idea to get a clear and strong grip on the different kinds of furniture available. Custom furniture has become exceedingly popular as designing your home becomes an extremely simple task. Here are a few reasons why you should look at investing in custom furniture rather than in ready-made furniture.

Why use custom furniture to decorate your home?

Easy to own and maintain: Do you want cupboards with a unique design but not able to find it? Do you want a spacious storage area for your bedroom but nothing seems to click? Do you want a sliding door for your cupboard but the aesthetics just don’t match? All these questions have one simple answer! Customized cabinets. The beauty of custom furniture is that you can make and design your furniture the way you want it, with a fair amount of your style and designs in each piece.

Custom Furniture

Just the right design: Designing a home with ready-made furniture can be very tricky. Not all pieces would match, giving the room a really weird look. With custom furniture, you can design your home EXACTLY the way you want it. You could have a huge bed in the middle of the room and another unique side table, giving the room a wonderful look.

Quality: When investing in furniture, looking at quality becomes a very serious and daunting task. You can never tell if the pieces are made perfectly. Thankfully, things have become easier with the advent and increasing popularity of custom furniture. When you’re designing your home with custom furniture, buying separate pieces and putting them together ensures that the quality of the end product is flawless and perfect.

A fitting finish!

What is the point of every home looking identical to the other? You may source your furniture from different places but the end result always makes your home look like another’s home. Ready-made furniture destroys the uniqueness, making things dull and mundane.
Often overlooked, but one of the most significant aspect of buying furniture is whether it would work with rest of the decor in your house. With custom furniture, you can create something that matches the walls, the floor or the other furniture pieces.

Elevate is the jewel among Hyderabad’s furniture showrooms

Hyderabad is home to several furniture showrooms. However, only a handful cater to the upmarket segment. Among these, Elevate is without doubt one of the premier luxury furniture destinations.

Furniture Showroom

Founded in 2013, Elevate is an expansive and best furniture showroom occupying a ground plus three-floor space on Road 45 of the Jubilee Hills area of Hyderabad.

Sofa sets and accessories

The ground floor welcomes you to Elevate with the Leather Editions section, which comprises several brands of sofa sets and accessories, including Natuzzi. The Natuzzi range is made in and imported from Italy.

The Natuzzi display area also includes a Protecta and Natural Leather section, where you can pick and choose the leather upholstery for your sofa or accessory. Protecta is leather that has been protected and finished to accomplish a consistent, uniform look. As you may well be aware, genuine leather naturally has scars, insect bites, wrinkles and veining. Protecta leather can be easily repaired and repairs are also less obvious, compared with the unprotected Natural leather range. In addition, Protecta upholstery resists fading much longer. Protecta leather sofas and accessories are best-suited for pet-friendly homes with an active entertaining lifestyle.

The Natuzzi range includes standard, full reclining & combination sofas . . . sofas featuring high-grade stainless steel legs . . . and low-back, corner, curved, sectional, ottoman & chaise cushion and loveseat sofas.

Ideas for Small Kitchens – For Classy Petite Cooking Spaces

It’s the room where you whip up some crazy yet interesting combos, where you satiate yourself and most importantly, it’s the room with the refrigerator. Be it any time of the day (or night), the kitchen has been the source of many stories, witnessed countless recipes and breathed in numerous memories.

Just as you compile and assemble ingredients for a dish, we believe a lot of thought and effort goes into designing a fitting and practical work station, which is your kitchen.

It’s quite easy to work with larger spaces. It’s the small kitchens that present a challenge. And that’s what makes the task more exciting!

Here are some classy ideas for small kitchens.

Small Kitchens – Large Interiors

First, you must choose the objects that are a must-have for your cooking space. As one glove need not fit all, it would be unfair for you and your kitchen, if it were designed to match every other small kitchen like a mass produced object.

The benefits of small modular kitchens are plenty. But, it’s their large interiors which makes mapping out ideas for small kitchens rather interesting.

Peek-a-Boo Storage

Storage spaces made to slide in and out are one of the most vital requirements for small kitchen owners. Elevate’s ideas for small kitchens include fittings from Hettich, a German company.

Hettich’s high quality products provide unique designs of drawers, sliding and folding doors, tables and cabinets.

Adventures of Small Kitchen Islands

Adding a kitchen island in small kitchens might be unheard of due to the space issue. However, a smartly built kitchen island can in fact be home to more storage space.

Depending on the space available, your kitchen island can be hollowed to store a variety of objects. Drawers for cutlery; shelves for pots and pans, racks for mats and plates; the possibilities are endless.

Journey to the Hollow Drawers

As drawers are a must have for small kitchens, you need not work with just one layer. Adding racks to these hollow spaces allows room for a variety of utensils and also helps keep your kitchen organised.

The Perfect ‘Top’pings

If you really like a majority of your kitchen surface to remain flat and neat, this idea will suit you best. Instead of bringing home a gas stove, opt for an induction cooktop that doubles as a kitchen counter. Be cautious for when it is or isn’t hot though!

Now you have some ideas for small kitchens to start with. So, go ahead and start using your minimum space to their maximum potential.

Modular Wardrobe Designs – The Smart Way around Small Spaces

Why take the Modular path?

While moving into a new house, all you need is convenience. In the clash between convenience and appearance, it’s the former that always wins. But, here at Elevate, we’ve managed to cater to both factors.

Modular Wardrobe Designs – Who do they appeal to the most?

The short answer to that is everyone. However, let’s narrow that down. From single professionals living in their first apartment, to newlyweds planning their first home. From siblings sharing a room, to homeowners revamping their neglected guestrooms, it all starts with a small space. What follows next, is convenience.

Prioritize – The knick-knacks from the basics

It all first started out with steel wardrobes. The towering bulks with their noisy handles definitely serve as portals to a nostalgia trip. But, these storage spaces stuffed to the brim were also known for taking up quite a bit of room space.

The best part about these modular wardrobe designs is that they’re custom-made. They’re built to fit you and your room. Not only do these smart settings save space, they also save time. They’re built to fit your unique lifestyle. As per your convenience, your modular wardrobes can be designed to give you access first to either your clothes, documents, gadgets or other essentials.

Modernize with Modular Wardrobe Designs

A standard bedroom consists of a study area, a bed, a dressing table and a wardrobe. But in the case of smaller rooms, the items are reduced to a single bed and a wardrobe. If you’ve ever had to consider settling for a smaller bed or storage space, it’s time to reconsider.

Not only do specific modular wardrobe designs take care of the issue of storing your belongings, they do so by making it work in limited spaces. That way you won’t have to settle for minimum comfort or lesser items.

Roll Out the Experts

Elevate offers solutions that are both chic and unique. Armed with Santarossa’s stately designs, and Ego Designs’ grand settings, your upgraded small space will be nothing short of a work of art.

Sleep Fashioned Through Science

The gateway to your dreams. The safe place where you recharge.
The place that gets you. The place where you belong.

If it is your bed that popped into your mind then you’re absolutely right, for there is no other place that could be as romanticized as the place where you rest your weary head. Yet, how is it that we treat our favourite eight (we know it’s lesser) hours of the day? Well, now you can give a break to your aching bones for it is time to elevate your standards of sleeping.

The result of multiple collaborations among doctors, clinicians and orthopaedic surgeons, Sealy’s designs have been known to deliver when it comes to comfortable and healthy nights of sleep.

Float
A comfort system is implemented to determine the right amount of layers perfect for all body types. Not too hard and not too soft, this layer system is designed to mould itself into a precise and comfortable shape beneath you.

Alleviate
Sealy’s mattresses also come equipped with a Pressure Relief Layer which is fashioned to focus on the parts of the body that requires a pressure relief; be it the joints or the muscles, this layer helps release all the kinks and cramps. It also adjusts itself to provide the required amount of support to the lower back and hips.

Calibrate
Slouching when awake is harmful for one’s posture, but falling into that position while sleeping has been known to aggravate the damage. Sealy’s Posture Channel design serves as support for muscle relaxation and allows the limbs to rest.

Pause
While comfort is vital, longevity is another factor that one hopes for while seeking a good night’s sleep. With Sealy’s Uni-cased construction, found only in their Posturepedic Mattresses, the motion reduction technology minimizes movement and disturbances almost to a negative.

These are but few features of this brand’s proven patented technology and it only strives to get better with further research and better development. So, shall we Sealy the deal for no more restless sleeps?
