Red loft conversions!

One of the biggest uses of the colour red is with loft and basement conversions. I mainly work as a builder with a loft conversion Manchester based company, but I often work as a freelancer with multiple other companies as an interior decorator. As I have discussed in my most recent blog posts, the colour red can do a lot for your home despite the room that you put it in. Red can really work well for a loft conversion depending on the project that you have. One of the most common loft conversions that home owners decide to pursue are for home entertainment rooms and bedrooms. In fact, red is becoming more and more popular for bedrooms because it is one of the only gender-neutral colours within the world. While a colour like blue seems suitable for boys and pink is more suitable for girls, a colour like red is a better option for someone who doesn’t want to specify the room design based on the gender of their children.

Many people decide to colour loft bedrooms that are designed for children in red because they are unaware of what gender their children would be during pregnancy, and they want to see the general design and look of the room after the conversion is completed. They may also decide that red would be the best colour because despite if they have a boy or a girl, they may love how the room looks and once the child is born they decide to keep the room the same. Whether you have a boy or a girl, once the child is within the room they would love the colour either way. This is even more accurate if once again, your child is growing up in a Manchester United household!

Another good use for the colour red is within a basement if you are planning to build a fitness room or something like a boxing room which is becoming increasingly popular for fitness addicts. Many people are starting to build boxing rooms within their basement filled with bags and a ring to practice their own cardio and fitness. Other times, people enjoy training and sparring with friends in the room, and the colour red gives everyone who is taking part of the event a competitive and sporting edge. This is also included when you consider the excitement that many get when they look at the colour red. It provokes a slight adrenaline rush when looking at the colour itself.

There are always little aspects that you may be unaware of that the colour red can give any home and any individual. While the colour red promotes specific feelings within you, this is the same for any colour. Every colour promotes a response within your brain and surrounding yourself in the colour that will promote the energy or vibe that you need or prefer is a good way to put focus on that specific aspect of your life. For example, green and dim yellow is the perfect colour for relaxation. If you are looking to relax or for comfort, then surrounding yourself in those colours is a good way to promote comfort within yourself.

The importance of red flowers!


Red is a colour that has become overlooked within homes, but not in the way you may first believe. While I have spoken multiple times about the benefits and differences red can make on homes like swimming pools and rooms within the home, there is something red that always compliments a home no matter what colour it is surrounded by. Red flowers within any home or even commercial property can make the largest difference on anyone who is inside. Red flowers within a home for example can make such a significant difference on the mood of the home owner or guests within the house itself. Red can be a colour that makes someone who looks at it excited, while for others it can represent anything from romance and lust to relaxation and pure comfort.

A good example of this would be roses. Placing roses within any room in a home such as the kitchen or living room really brightens the area and the mood up. Roses can provide any home with an atmosphere that is both calm and inviting, while also being romantic and exciting. Any type of red flower can provide this for a home, but roses have become the most popular for couples or families that want to provide a bit more romance or atmosphere within the home itself.

There are a variety of red flowers that are available for the inside of any home, but there are also many different flowers that can be planted and grown within the garden or front of any home itself. While I would go into more detail about the many flowers, I am planning to save the flowers themselves for a separate blog post to hopefully inspire some home owners or designers to purchase and place these flowers themselves. However, I would appreciate it if any of my readers will let me know some of the flowers that they love within their homes or gardens too, so don’t be afraid to leave a comment in today’s post!

If you can, I would really appreciate if you could read some of the blog posts that I have made over the past few days, and some of the posts I will be making in the future including the second part to this one too!

Manchester is Red!

Manchester is known for being a city that is considered behind the times, and much less stylish or attractive than other cities such as London. I personally believe that Manchester is the most beautiful and inspiring city within the United Kingdom. There is one dividing aspect within the city of Manchester when it comes to designs, however. This main aspect would be colour. As is obvious by this blog, I am a red in every sense of the word. I am a Manchester United fan, and I am in love with the colour red, which is why I created this blog post to begin with. However, the other half of the city is “Blue”, because of their support of Man City. Football is so passionate and important within the city that it defines entire generations and the preferences of furniture, colour and even food at times just for the sake of their football club.

I will always be a red lover, despite the fact you may think I am whining about the colour! My love for my football club is what first attracted me to the colour red, and it became my favourite colour throughout the rest of my life. Now that I have become both a builder and a home decorator of sorts, I am now using the inspiration and love that I have for the colour red to help create innovative and elegant styles within the homes that I build and renovate. There are so many furniture, paint and design options for every room and home, that the colour red can be suitable for any type of room within a home. The colour red is suitable for the kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and even the living room depending on the use – or even overuse – in the room itself.

One of my favourite uses for the colour red when decorating a home is for the use of the kitchen. A black and red colour combination inside a kitchen can make the home look elegant, but also give the hint of a clean kitchen that is comfortable and welcoming for both the home owners and guests that visit the home itself. It is also a modern and contemporary colour combination within kitchen these days, especially when combining the combination with glass table and kitchen tops. The glass gives it an additionally striking and attractive overall look within the room itself.

Red is also a useful colour for a living room if you are looking for a darker, or more distinctive feel within the home. Whether it be the red and black combination, or even a white and black combination, it gives a colour combination of two opposites that are both striking for separate reasons. The red and white combination gives the living room a “Strawberries and Cream” look, while the black and red colour combination looks like a “Black Forrest Gateau” look. Both colour styles provide the homes living room with a look that is literally tasteful, while also being enjoyable and attractive to look at.

I hope you enjoyed today’s blog post. If you get the chance, please read through the posts that I have made in the last week or so, and make sure to read some of the posts that we will be creating in the future weeks!

The red swimming pool!

One of the most interesting projects that I was able to work on that involved the colour red was building and maintaining a red swimming pool. This is as weird of a project as it may sound when first reading it, but it will make sense within time. There were so many aspects that went into the project itself, such as the feasibility of the project itself and a realistic chance to maintain the swimming pool itself. While it may sound too complex and difficult for a home owner or a builder to create a swimming pool that is always a certain colour while also being safe to use on a day to day basis, we did manage to come up with multiple features and additions that allowed the swimming pool to stay red in terms the water and the landscape itself.

The home owner who wanted the red swimming pool was a player for a Manchester based football team, so it was important to him that the swimming pool and the garden itself matched the theme of the “Red Devils”. This really is as insane as it sounds, and for that reason I am going to give as little detail or information as possible, so you do not know who the home owner is. The home owner is a huge Manchester United fan, and he wanted his kids to grow into Manchester United fans too. While I am not one to judge on what a home owner would like for their own designs, I do understand the thought process of the design itself and I really enjoyed taking part in the process itself. It was enjoyable to complete, and after the swimming pool had been constructed I thought that the project itself was elegant and stylish, since it had the chance to make the swimming pool look like it was a blood bath.

The swimming pool was actually very easy to complete in terms of the red colouring. The stage of construction was to complete the swimming pool by placing red panels within the walls of the pool. The red panels and tiles made sure that the water had given the pool an illusion of red, while also ensuring that the Manchester United crest was painted into the tiles at the bottom of the pool itself. It was visible to all those who were either looking down on the pool, or inside the pool itself. On top of the red tiles and panels, I also placed small but strong red LED lights within the pool, and the lights had also given the impression of the water being a reddish tint. We were also considering adding non-toxic red colouring into the pool itself, but once the water had already been filled into the pool, it gave the water a red look while the lights are on to the point that the colouring was not necessary for the home owner.

I hope you enjoyed todays blog post. This is one of the most interesting and unique projects that I have ever worked on and had the chance to take part in. While I am sure that similar projects have been completed throughout the world, this is the first time I have ever seen a similar project and it was the first time I had ever gotten the chance to work on one, so it was enjoyable.

I hope you liked this post, and make sure you read the ones we will be posting later! Also, make sure to read my first post yesterday too!

The Colour Red!

Red is an interesting colour around the world. I have often wondered what meaning there is behind colours. Red is one of the more interesting colours since it is one of the only colours that colour-blind people cannot see. It is also a colour that is considered a sign of horror and bad omen in some places around the world, while being considered a sign of good luck in other parts of the world. Red is also one of the most common colours in the world, and it also has a strange psychological effect on people. These are all things that I plan on making a blog post about in the future. One of the small psychological futures that has been documented within the last few years is how attractive red is as a colour to the eye. I plan on doing a blog post about this specifically, but if someone was to choose a colour out of a selection of options, red would be the prominent and the one that is picked on average before any other colour.

Red is also a prominent colour throughout the world. One of the main examples of how prominent red is as a colour is the film Schindler’s List. When watching the film, the only colour that is prominent throughout the film is the colour red, while everything else being in white and black. The whole film is devoid of colour but when you see the colour red, you know that it is of importance. That is why red furniture is such a stand out in people’s homes. It makes the home feel so much more striking to the eye than any other colour that is available. While it may not be the most attractive colour or the most elegant, it is the most prominent.

There are so many different colours that are available to any home owner when it comes to the design of homes itself. While colours such as brown, white, black and purple are intuitive and make a home look stylish and elegant, red is the colour that makes any piece of furniture stand out. One of the best furniture options for the colour red is a rug. A very prominent red rug makes any room feel much more striking to the eye than any other colour, and your eyes become naturally drawn to this red rug. If you have a very fine timber for your hardwood floor, then the red will only compliment the floor and lead anyone within the home to look at it. This is a small trick that realtors use on potential home buyers because they know the customer will naturally look at whatever piece of furniture or foundation the realtor will want them to look at.

If you use hardwood floors that are created from a rare or beautiful timber, the floor itself is enhanced by the rug. It is such a small detail that so many overlook, but psychologically it is important for any home designer or interior decorator to be aware of when they create a new home or renovate an existing home with a new design. There are so many psychological values what builders and construction companies should be aware of, and I have created this blog to make the industry aware of the effects red can have on homes and designs. I hope you enjoyed todays blog post, and I hope you stick around to see more in the future!
