    The window is a commercial section aluminium frame with a picture window in the centre and 2 awning windows on the side. Any aluminium window manufacturer will be able to make these for you.

    The wood is simply a laminate flooring that has been glued and secret nailed to the wall as you would the floor. It is very simple yet very effective!

    The floor is an engineered laminate floor. It is a stunning wide board with texture to the touch. It is a commercial grade so wears amazingly well. The product is Kronotex, the range is Mammut and the colour is Capital Oak. A truly beautiful product!

    What does a wall like that cost ?
  • PRO
    CAPITAL BUILDING :: Apartment - Renovations
    Costs will always depend on the products you use and whether you have to pay for the labour. You can always get clever with materials! Work out the flooring cost per square metre for the wall and your labour costs if any per hour and that is a good place to start for your budget - Good Luck with your project!

    We used aluminium angle on the ends of the wall to cover the edge of the boards - it kept the edges neat and it is also subtle so that it just disappears, you really don't notice it!

    The ceiling was dropped as we had to work a way to get the reverse cycle air-conditioning into the best position in the room. Bringing the vents to this side of the room meant better cooling and gave us the opportunity to frame the bed. This photo makes it look bulkier than it is, most people think the bulkhead was part of the design with the bed not a functional bulkhead.

  • PRO
    CAPITAL BUILDING :: Apartment - Renovations
    It is literally any brand of paint and the white that comes straight out of the tin with no tint. Most paint companies have a pretty similar base white that they start with and as they have no tints in it they will give this effect. Good luck with your project!

If you have a beige floor, what color recomend you for the accesories?

  • PRO
    CAPITAL BUILDING :: Apartment - Renovations
    It doesn't matter what colour you start with as long as you work with colours and tones around it that complement it you will get this result. Pick up a tone in one of the materials you are working with and then replicate that somewhere else in the room and you have created a connector. As you can see in this image there is actually a variety of tones in it, we have picked up the tones from various items in the room and used them again. This enables you to broaden your pallet but still create a connected easy on the eye room!

    Thanks Pippa! The fireplace and bedside cabinets are simply made of MDF and painted! I drew up my design and I had our team build it for me. The easiest thing to do is to get a carpenter to make it up for you. It is not expensive, it is the perfect fit and it looks great! The firewood inside is a nylon string line of Driftwood, you purchase them in set lengths, in different widths and colours. I found it in a homewares store but to give you an idea i found this one (albeit shorter lengths) on ebay at http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/BALINESE-DRIFTWOOD-WALL-HANGING-HOME-DECOR-BEACH-7-/181172267269 for you to start your search. Good luck with your room!

  • PRO
    CAPITAL BUILDING :: Apartment - Renovations
    You would simply need to use the same method - glue and secret nailing. Although it will be heavy, so be sure to check you have a good solid structure to attach it to that has the correct supports behind it - Good Luck!

    For the best continuity it would be great if you could use the same product, although from a cost and ease of install it would be easier to use a laminate flooring. My only other thoughts would be to make sure the tile doesn't have a cold look/element to it as you want your bedroom to have a soothing warm feel. Also if you are going to use 2 different products just make sure they have elements/colours that connect them - they don't have to match exactly but they must have a connector. I hope some of these items help you work it out!

Size of wood wall please? How wide should opening be on either side?

  • PRO
    CAPITAL BUILDING :: Apartment - Renovations
    Corners and edges are always tricky with laminate flooring. We have used 2 different solutions in this property. On this wall we used aluminium angle but that worked because the edge was white plasterboard. In other areas - which might be a better solution for you - we used actual timber strips which we stained to suit the colour tones in the laminate flooring. If you can pick up the right tones the timber should disappear in the overall look. Another suggestion would be to not use one vertical strip of timber perhaps break it up into the size of the planks in the laminate flooring and that will help it disappear. Good luck with your project!

    You can certainly keep this look with carpet in your room. The tones that i feel would work would be a light carpet like the colour of the rug in the picture or a deep warm grey. Although if you select your flooring for the wall first then match a carpet to one of the tones in that, then that will also work as you will have a connector between the two!

    That is right, you need to be sure anything you attach is secured to the stud in the wall behind it. This applies to the bedside tables as well as the mirror

    Thanks! I think this may have been a trade brand of paint. Although to get this effect you can use any brand of paint from mid range to top of the line. All the mid to high quality brands these days will stay on your wall. The top quality ones will be whiter and will have better wash and wear properties.
