Creating irresistible bedrooms

Posted by admin on July 22, 2013 at 1:51 pm. Filed under: Modern Bedroom Furniture

Creating the perfect bedroom can seem like a daunting task, but by bearing a few simple principles in mind, you can achieve spectacular results.

The only trouble is, once you’ve succeeded in transforming your boudoir into a stylish, luxurious haven from the rest of the world, you might struggle to tear yourself away from it in the mornings!

Big, bold beds

Beds are the most important items of designer furniture in these rooms, so it’s really important that you choose one that looks the part and exudes comfort and luxury. For the best results, it could pay off to opt for a big, bold version that forms a great focal point within the space. Of course, the item must fit comfortably within the square footage available. There’s no point in stuffing a huge bed into a relatively small room. This isn’t just impractical, it also looks bad.

The best statement beds make great use of colour and design. By opting for a sleek, modern version, you can show you know what’s what when it comes to interior design.

Clear the clutter

Bedrooms ought to be relaxing, so there’s simply no place for clutter. Tripping over books and underwear as you navigate your way across your boudoir is far from ideal. Untidiness is a sure fire way to destroy the look of your entire room. Also, it’s not exactly relaxing trying to nod off amid all this chaos.

This is where effective storage comes in handy. These days, there are plenty of attractive and practical units available, so there’s no need to put up with this problem.

Take your pick

Here at Pandon Home we offer an impressive selection of products and may have exactly what you’re looking for to give your bedroom a revamp. Whether you want to invest in a leather bed, bedroom cabinets or anything else, you can just take a look around our website.

Other handy hints

Glamorous beds and practical yet funky storage solutions may be two of the most important categories of furniture for this part of the home, but they’re not the only areas you should focus on. For example, it might also be a good idea to invest in some stylish, thick curtains. These products have a big visual impact and they can also help you get enough shuteye. Particularly at this time of year when the nights are short, it’s important to be able to block light out of your sleeping area. Also, over the summer you can shut your curtains during the day to help keep the temperature down and, in the colder months, thick curtains help to minimise drafts.

In addition, it’s worth thinking about those small extras that can help to give bedrooms personality. Cute artwork and framed photos can make a real difference, and you might want to splash out on some more cushions and throws for added luxury.

Whatever you’re after, remember quality is key. The last thing you want in your boudoir is tacky, poorly made items.

 


 

Simple home makeover tips

Posted by admin on July 12, 2013 at 1:53 pm. Filed under: Contemporary Furniture

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when you start home improvement projects, especially if you want to smarten your place up from top to bottom. There’s just so much to do! However, by following these top tips, you can break the task up and make it more manageable.

Our design ideas are designed to give maximum benefit for minimum effort. Here at Pandon Home we know that consumers are busy and need practical, straightforward interior design solutions that fit around their schedules and don’t bust their budgets.

A sofa with real personality

Your living room may be the social epicentre of your house or flat, so it’s important that it looks fab and boasts appealing modern furniture. To liven the space up a bit and inject some new life into it, why not invest in a statement sofa? We offer a selection of products that exude style and personality.

For example, our OSLO corner sofa is a must-see if you want to add some panache to your lounge. Its differently coloured sections make it a superb focal point. Especially if your living room walls and flooring are understated, this vibrant piece may be just what you’re looking for.

Clean lines

Contemporary design is all about clean lines. If there’s one way to wreck the look of rooms, it’s by cluttering them up with books, clothes, DVDs and other items. To ensure you don’t fall into this trap, it may be a good idea to invest in additional storage.

For example, our Baton TV unit in walnut could make a great addition to your lounge. You can use it to hide all those little bits and pieces that can spoil the appearance of the room. The product also looks fantastic in its own right. With statement grooves cut into its doors, it has an exotic appeal.

Think outside the box

It’s easy to get stuck in an interior design rut and to really revamp your property, it’s important to climb out of this. By thinking outside the box and kicking convention to the curb, you can achieve stunning looks.

With this in mind, it’s well worth taking a look at the round swivel coffee table we offer. This modern take on the traditional coffee table has a top surface that revolves with a simple swivel action. Finished with a high gloss lacquer, it is a real head-turner. Modern coffee tables like this are such a quick, easy and inexpensive way to jazz up your abode.

Revamp your walls

As well as investing in new high gloss furniture it’s important to think about the perimeters of your rooms. If your walls are looking a little tired or you’re just plain sick of their colour, it could be time to reinvent them with a lick of paint or some new wallpaper.

OK, so DIY like this can require a little effort, but it’s worth it. Of course, if you don’t have the time or inclination to slip into your overalls, you can always get the experts in to do it for you!

 


 

Effective space saving solutions for the modern home

Posted by admin on July 3, 2013 at 1:59 pm. Filed under: Contemporary Furniture

Space comes at a premium on the real estate market and if certain rooms in your home are lacking in square footage, you can rest assured you’re not alone. Estate agents may be adept at playing down the impracticalities of so-called ‘bijou’ spaces, but they can be a real pain to live with.

However, as long as you’re savvy, you can take maximum advantage of contemporary furniture to help you get around many of these problems. Designers and engineers around the world are constantly coming up with new, attractive and practical products that make squeezed living easier.

Put all your options on the table

Even simple items like coffee tables can be used to surprising effect. OK, so these products are great for keeping magazines, newspapers, books and of course coffee cups on, but they can serve other purposes too.

Our BATON coffee table in walnut is a perfect example. This statement piece looks fabulous in the centre of rooms and, as well as utilising its surface, you can make the most of the interior space it hides. Whether you choose to store DVDs, books or anything else in it, this product could be perfect in your home. With grooves cut into its veneer, it can help to give your lounge an exotic look.

Dining in style

It’s also well worth checking out our range of buffet dining storage products. These items are perfect for housing all manner of items. It’s amazing how much you can fit into them, including plates, glasses, crockery and much more. Especially if your kitchen is on the small side, contemporary dining room furniture like this can be a real lifesaver.

Vertical space

Another great space saving tip is to make the most of any vertical space you have. For instance, rather than opting for short bedroom storage products, why not check out the six drawer chest we offer? This won’t take up any more room on the floor than its shorter counterparts, but you can fit much more in it.

Our white, high-gloss version offers sophistication and its simple, unfussy shape complete with rounded lines helps it to meld into the background.

Corner sofas

Seating may be an issue in your home. When you have guests over, you might find yourself having to reach for unsightly ‘emergency chairs’. However, by investing in leather corner sofas, you might be able to avoid this problem. These items make superb use of space and can seat a surprising number of people.

Of course, when you don’t have guests, you can simply recline on them and luxuriate on their spacious cushions.

A little imagination

In an ideal world, you’d no doubt have all the square footage you wanted in your home. However, even though we don’t live in such a world, it’s still possible to create practical, attractive rooms as long as you invest in suitable furniture.

To check out all the items we have to offer, just take a look around the rest of our website. With a little imagination and our online catalogue in front of you, you should be able to come up with the ideal solutions.


 

Dining Room Furniture Tips

How To Bring Harmony To Your Living Room

The humble coffee table has been an integral part of every living room in Britain ever since the Victorian era. Today, this enduring essential of the furnishing world is even more popular, as modern coffee tables are available in a wide array of stylish, beautiful and functional variants.

Whether you’re furnishing a new home from scratch or revamping your existing living room with modern furniture, there are certain key considerations which you need to keep in mind when buying a coffee table. Indeed, if you are to achieve a truly harmonious interior in your living room then you will need to address two vital issues: style and scale.

Style

The first thing you need to do when choosing a new coffee table for your living room is make a note of what design style will most complement your other furniture. If your room is relatively traditional then you may want to opt for a nice wooden table made of oak or walnut. Alternatively, if your living room is deliberately contemporary then you may prefer to choose a modern glass and chrome table as this will offset the room and mix it up a little. In general, contemporary living rooms call for sleek and uncomplicated lines. Oval or round glass tables with chrome bases are perennially good options in modern rooms as are tiered wooden tables with sturdy bases.

Scale

The scale of your coffee table, along with the scale of your living room, will have a huge impact on your choice. If your room is comprised of large leather corner sofas and chairs then you would do well to choose a table that is comparable in size. A large rectangular table made from a good sturdy wood like oak or walnut would do nicely. However, if your living room already contains some heavy wooden furniture pieces then you may need to instead consider buying a coffee table that will lighten the weight in the room. A large glass table would be a good choice in this respect as it will maintain the established sense of scale yet balance out the heavier furniture. In fact, a glass table in a living room which is predominantly furnished with wooden pieces room can look very stylish indeed!

Of course, it is important to bear the size of your living room in mind when thinking about scale. If you have a small living lounge area then you’d be better off opting for a glass table as the transparency of the glass visually enhances the space of the room and gives the impression of lightness. If your living room is large on the other hand, you should choose a coffee table which will mirror that. A small table will become anonymous so instead opt for something large, perhaps tiered or with drawers.

Without doubt, keeping the twin aspects of style and scale firmly in mind will help you to choose a coffee table that will bring harmony to your living room.


 

Dining Room Furniture Tips

Posted by admin on June 20, 2013 at 10:45 am. Filed under: Dining Room Furniture

It seems that everyone is falling over themselves to cook for guests these days. Indeed, it is a fair bet that someone you know will invite you to some kind of dinner party or tasting session sometime in the next fortnight.

But why is this? What is responsible for this explosion in all things culinary?

Well, you will probably not be surprised to learn that our old friend television must take some – if not all – the credit for creating this phenomenon.

For sure, programmes like BBC’s ‘Masterchef’ and Channel Four’ s ‘Come Dine With Me’ have been a huge hit with viewers. To be sure, these shows are like fuel to a fire for culinary enthusiasts as they fill their heads with ideas and inspiration for how they too can treat their guests to an evening of fine food, witty banter and perhaps even a little bit of melodrama.

If you are not getting invited to these events then you are probably the one who is hosting them. Indeed, you may well be one of the aforementioned culinary enthusiasts who love nothing more than whipping out a hand-held blowtorch and giving your creations a gentle little flambé.

If so then good for you.

Of course, there is a serious side to hosting a dinner party. After all, you genuinely do want your guests to have a good time and go home saying good things about your food and your home.

Whilst we here at Pandon Home can do very little to advise you on the type of food to serve your guests, we can provide you with some helpful guidance about your choice of contemporary dining room furniture.

Choose Furniture to Suit Your Requirements

When you are looking for modern dining room furniture don’t just opt for the first table and chairs that take your fancy, as they will probably not be the right design for your interior, room or requirements. Rather than rushing in and making an impetuous decision, think about your dining needs in detail. For example, if you regularly have plenty of guests round for dinner parties then you will likely need quite a large table to accommodate everyone comfortably. Extending dining tables can be particularly good options in this respect as you can make them larger or smaller to suit your requirements.

Take the Size of your Dining Room into Consideration

If you do in fact decide to opt for a large dining table then make sure you consider whether or not it will fit into your dining room without looking out of place. After all, a large dining table in a small room will end up looking awkward and create a cramped setting for your guests to eat in. If this is a concern then you may find moving existing dining room furniture, such as chest of drawers and bookcases, out of the way as this will provide you with the space you need to enjoy your large dining table in its true splendour!


 

Laze Around In Style This Summer

Posted by admin on June 14, 2013 at 10:45 am. Filed under: Outdoor furniture

Like most other people at this time of year you may well enjoy spending time out in your garden with family and friends, soaking up the sun and making the most of the mild evenings. Indeed, playing games with the kids, eating al fresco meals and lazing around with a good book are simple yet rewarding activities which can make you feel very content indeed.

Of course, if you want to laze around properly then you need to have the right kind of outdoor furniture to do so. After all, lying on the grass with the ants and bugs for company will not make you feel content – it will make you feel itchy!

Therefore, it is important that you invest in some outdoor furniture pieces which will allow you to really relax and indulge in the many pleasures which summer has to offer.

However, with so many different kinds of sun loungers, luxury hammocks, patio tables and chairs, outdoor bean bags, swing seats and garden couches now available, determining which kind of furniture will suit your needs can be a needlessly difficult task.

Fortunately, we here at Pandon Home are not just one of the UK’s leading stockists of high quality designer furniture; we are also very generous people who love nothing more than sharing our expertise with anyone who is willing to listen!

So, if you’d like to know a bit more about choosing the right outdoor furniture for your garden this summer, just take a few moments to read through our handy hints below.

Cost

When it comes to cost, the same general rule applies to garden furniture as to most other home purchases – the more you spend, the higher in quality your purchase will be. This is not to say that inexpensive options should be avoided altogether though. Indeed, it can often pay dividends to keep an eye out for special offers where outdoor furniture sets have been dramatically reduced, especially if you are keen to keep to a budget. Certainly, if you were fortunate enough to see, let’s say, a two piece rattan/aluminium sun lounger and table set reduced from £499 to £299 – you would surely have to be mad not to take advantage of it!

If Only…

Funnily enough, we here at Pandon Home do in fact have just such a piece available for purchase at the moment! Indeed, our two sunbeds with table set is a fantastic deal as the sunbeds are an absolute vision in stylish brown rattan and come complete with a super-stylish and resolutely robust aluminium structure. The table too is a fine example of high-class cool as its tempered glass top and rattan finish ensure it will look effortlessly chic with your glass of Pimms (or Fanta) resting on it.

Treat Yourself

Being able to chill out for a few hours on this kind of contemporary outdoor furniture will allow you to really enjoy your lazy time in the garden this summer. So go on…treat yourself!


 

The Unique And Timeless Appeal Of High Quality Hardwood Coffee Tables

Posted by admin on May 28, 2013 at 1:17 pm. Filed under: Contemporary Furniture

A coffee table is an essential part of any living room and hardwood coffee tables offer both practicality and style. Whether we use it to rest our mugs, books, magazines, laptops or remote controls on, solid wood is arguably the most elegant and functional material of all from which superior coffee tables can be made from.

The Benefits of Hardwood Coffee Tables

The living room is the place where we spend most of our time relaxing. As the coffee table is one of the most functional and heavily used items of furniture in this room (along with the sofa), it is important to have one which is both hard wearing and durable. Hardwood coffee tables meet these requirements entirely as they are incredibly robust and any marks or scratches can be easily put right. Solid wood is also beautiful to look at and can fit in with almost any decor, including traditional or contemporary homes. And, as wood has been used in furniture-making for centuries, it is fair to say that hardwood coffee tables will never go out fashion.

We here at PandonHome sell a beautiful range of hardwood coffee tables (which includes solid walnut and oak coffee tables) in contemporary designs that can either complement other living room furniture items (like contemporary side tables) or be used as individual statement pieces.

Walnut Coffee Tables

Walnut has a dark base colour and lighter markings which makes it a highly attractive material for hardwood coffee tables. Walnut is also a very hard and dense wood; therefore it is a particularly good choice for living rooms which experience a lot of traffic. The walnut coffee tables we have available here at PandonHome are not just rich and exotic in colour and tone; their contemporary styling also ensures they are able to compliment practically any minimalist or designer decor. Amongst our offerings we have solid walnut coffee tables with convenient drawers and shelving to store away clutter as well as tables without drawers to create a simple, linear look.

Oak Coffee Tables

The durability and appealing grain markings of oak has made it a popular choice for living room furniture for a long time. We here at PandonHome have a range of uber-chic styles including solid oak coffee tables with shelving or drawers which can serve as a useful tidy for newspapers, magazines and remote controls. With classic appeal and an innate ability to bring the best out of both modern and traditional settings, oak coffee tables are likely to retain their popularity for many generations to come.

PandonHome

Our aim here at PandonHome is to present our valued customers with the most unique and modern designer furniture on the market so that everyone has the opportunity to create the home of their dreams. So, if you are looking for beautifully designed, modern coffee tables which will make your living room look and feel sensational, make sure you come to us here PandonHome.


 

Three Important Things To Consider When Choosing A Coffee Table

Posted by admin on May 20, 2013 at 1:13 pm. Filed under: Contemporary Furniture

A living room without a coffee table is like a millionaire heiress without a tiny dog – it just doesn’t look right! The truth is, coffee tables are invaluable additions to living rooms as they serve several distinct yet vital purposes; from completing a design look to providing some much needed storage space.

The question is: which type of coffee table will look best in your living room?

Should you go with a wooden one with chunky legs or a metallic number with a glass top? Should it be a rectangular, white coffee table or a round black one? The options are so many and varied that opting for one table above all others can seem quite overwhelming.

If you are at all struggling in this respect then you may find the following tips to be very helpful. Indeed, considering the following three things will break down the maze of decisions and help you to find the perfect coffee table.

Shape

The first thing you need to consider is which shape of table will best suit your living room space. To determine this, you will need to ponder a few variables, such as: do you have children or pets, and; is your lounge area large and spacious or is it small and narrow? A round or oval coffee table is a sensible choice if you have children or pets as the curved edges mitigate the risks of toddlers (and pets) getting hurt if they bump into it. If you opt for a square or rectangular shaped coffee table then make sure you leave at least 30 inches between it and your TV cabinet as this will ensure you have enough room to walk between the two pieces.

Material

Modern coffee tables are available in a wide range of materials. There are industrial varieties, such as metal; integrated options, such as glass combined with brass or steel, and there are woods, such as walnut, oak, and cherry. Wooden coffee tables are arguably the most popular as they are supremely durable and have immense aesthetic appeal. Walnut coffee tables look especially impressive in properties with designer furniture as this type of wood effortlessly compliments practically every kind of contemporary decor.

Style

Formal, informal, modern or vintage; these are all styles to be considered when purchasing a new coffee table. If you favour a contemporary look, then you may find a super-sleek walnut gloss table or metal table with glass to be high on your list. If country casual is more your thing then a rustic oak table might be a better option. Or, if you’re looking for something that will make your living room look and feel more romantic, you may feel inclined to go for something a little more sensuous, such as a round table with wood turned legs.

So now that you know what to look for, you just need to make your purchase. Fortunately for you, you’re already in the perfect place..!


 

How To Choose The Right Coffee Table For Your Lounge

Posted by admin on May 18, 2013 at 1:12 pm. Filed under: Uncategorized

Most homes simply do not feel complete without a coffee table in the living room or lounge. That said, many people choose their living room table without taking too much time to think about how it will affect the overall decor of their lounge area. This means that far too many homes have coffee tables in them which are miss-matched or ill-suited to the rooms where they are placed.

If you are thinking of buying a stylish new coffee table then there are three interior design principles which you need to consider before parting with your cash: form, function and space.

Form

In essence, form simply means determining the design direction you wish to create in a particular room. Of course, the type of design direction you want to achieve is entirely up to you; however, once you have decided how you want your room to look, you must stick with it and adhere to what will compliment it. For example, a white coffee table will compliment a monochrome-effect lounge area far more than a bright yellow table.

Function

Function is a vital aspect to consider when choosing modern coffee tables. To determine your functional requirements you need to identify your family’s living habits in the living room. For example, are you a ‘sit back and relax’ type family that loves to kick off your shoes and put your feet up on the coffee table? If so, then it stands to reason that a glass table will probably not be a good choice. Indeed, an easy to clean, solid wood table will probably be a more suitable option.

On the other hand, if you are the type of family that enjoys spreading out on the sofa with a good book (or Kindle) then you will likely need a table that does not measure higher than the top of your sofa seat cushions. After all, there is nothing worse than staring at a table line while endeavouring to relax horizontally!

If you have small children running about the place then tables made from solid wood are again a more sensible choice than glass. Moreover, solid wood coffee tables with rounded edges are normally safer than sharper edged variants as they will do less harm when they are challenged to an impromptu game of ‘chicken’ by a toddler.

Space

Space is perhaps the most important aspect of all to consider. Two smaller tables placed side by side can often work better that one large bulky coffee table in small lounge areas. Similarly, glass coffee tables can be good choices in relatively small rooms as they appear to take up less space.

So there you have it; before shopping for coffee tables, ensure you determine your form, establish the living habits of those in your home and identify your available space.

Clear the clutter with attractive storage

Posted by admin on April 23, 2013 at 9:41 am. Filed under: Contemporary Furniture

It doesn’t matter how much effort and skill you put into designing the interior of your home, the whole look will be spoiled if your rooms are filled with too much clutter.

That said, it can be tricky to keep your house or flat tidy all the time. It’s amazing how quickly rooms can start to look chaotic and you might find yourself in a constant and often losing battle to tame the mess.

The savvy approach

However, if you’re savvy, there’s a simple way to address this problem. By investing in more storage products, you should find it easier to combat the clutter. As long as all your possessions have homes in cupboards and drawers, you won’t find yourself tripping over them.

Of course, it’d be a shame to plonk unsightly shelves and other items around your home simply because they’re practical. Thankfully, you don’t have to. It’s now simple to get your hands on fabulously stylish contemporary furniture that is both functional and stunning to look at. Here at Pandon Home we should have everything you need – and all at the click of a button!

The bedroom

Your bedroom might be one area you’re particularly keen to keep tidy. It should be a restful space when you can sink into peaceful slumber. We offer an array of bedroom cabinets and other items that can help you create the ideal boudoir.

For example, perhaps our MDF night stand with white high gloss lacquer would make a great addition to your sleeping area. It’s petite and cute, and thanks to its two draws, it’s a great place to put books, cosmetics and other items.

If you’re after something a little larger, maybe our six draw chest, which is also MDF with white high gloss lacquer, would be ideal. Indeed, why not treat yourself and go for both?

It’s also well worth taking a look at our chalk bed with storage. This comes with convenient drawers and it also looks and feels amazing. This product is proof that when it comes to contemporary bedroom furniture, you really can have it all.

Dining room

Another fantastic product that’s well worth a look is our buffet dining storage. This has real elegance and class, and it can make the perfect backdrop to sophisticated dinner parties. Meanwhile, it’s ideal if you are limited for space in your kitchen because it allows you to store glassware, crockery and other items away from your cooking area.

Lounge

When it comes to your lounge, perhaps a new TV cabinet would be great. These items are the ideal place to keep your games consoles, digital TV boxes, DVD players and other technology.

If you’re not careful, your living room can quickly be awash with DVDs, CDs, remote controls and other items. By investing in a stylish TV cabinet, you can make sure all of these items are neatly tucked away out of sight.

To check out our full range of products, just take a look around the rest of our website.
