Do you wish you could mimic the ambiance and luxurious atmosphere you would only find in a boutique hotel? These tips can get you one step further to creating the perfect, relaxing oasis in your own home.
A pivotal part for all rooms, colour is the primary factor that sets the tone and atmosphere. The right hue can even induce sleep. For hotel-inspired luxury living, the palette requires a certain sophistication. Fuschia pink walls just don’t quite cut it.
Opt for contemporary neutral paint for the large pieces in your room, for example headboards, wardrobes, and curtains. Especially when it comes to your wall colours. Our go to colours range from off whites, greige, mushroom, stone and taupe. These hues have a beautiful depth and a soothing quality.
It’s always worth injecting a bit of contrast or colour into your scheme. Dark wood, deep bronze or black accents work well with lighter, muted neutrals as they ground the design and offer ‘weight’. Add punch through bedside tables, fireplace surrounds or statement lighting. Smaller accents – candles, framing or hardware – also work incredibly effectively. It’s amazing what a matte black handle can do to lift a wardrobe door.
When deciding to build a new home, there are a lot of things to consider, including the pricing strategy you want to proceed with. Most home builders will offer clients the option between a fixed price and cost plus contract. Deciding which one is right for you can add to the stress of home building, so at Gibson Contracting our team works with every client to assist them with this decision so that it becomes one more flawless step in the construction of your new home.
Fixed Price Contract
For clients that have a set budget and can prioritize their home options, a fixed price contract is the best option. With that being said, all things aren't equal when choosing a contractor. At Gibson, we don't compromise the integrity of a home to present a lower bid than competitors. We present our fixed price contracts with the Gibson standard of using superior materials and installation methods.
The most significant advantage of a fixed price model is that it allows the homeowner to know in advance what the house will cost. You will be aware of the total cost before the project even begins and not have to worry about market price fluctuations.
The main disadvantage of the fixed price model is that it typically requires clients to prioritize their home desires and possibly make concessions to keep within their set budget.
