Open spaces deliver challenges and opportunities simultaneously. Here you are, moved into this new and better home that is open from the front door to the kitchen!
What to do?
On the up side, you can choose your dining area. Get creative and see what area feels like a relaxing space; one that has the best view and some access to the delivery of the food will create an easy flow and feel natural.
This floor plan typically defines the builder’s idea of the dining area by the placement of the chandelier. That’s not a game changer; three screws are all that anchor the existing light to the space it currently. You can move it and add a new light that better suits the new use of the space.
Lighting is easily changed from room to room if you love the one you’re with; or with a replacement if you don’t.
A note of caution; before you rush out to … Read the rest
Once that has, you will begin to feel more at home and settled. The aim of this article is to show you how to make your new home more modern without breaking the bank.
If you have moved into an old home, you will probably see old patterned wallpaper on the walls. This will mean that the rooms will look smaller and a bit drab. Therefore, the first thing you should do is strip the walls of the old-fashioned wallpaper, and start again.
At the moment, the most prevalent trend is to have a feature wall. Feature walls make rooms look bigger and it will cost a lot less money to wallpaper one wall and not every wall. Once you have chosen the wallpaper, you should pick a colour from the wallpaper and use that colour on the other walls.
If you can’t find a colour that you like, you can never go wrong with white paint, and this will … Read the rest
We have all seen climbing walls, and now there is one especially made for a pool. It attaches to the inside and towers up and over the water. The best part is if you fall off you simply fall back into the water, and there is no need for ropes or pulleys like on other climbing walls.
If you like relaxing in your pool (and who doesn’t?) you’ll love the newest floatie, this one is the shape and size of an over sized chair or small sofa. The giant pool sofa easily sits an adult or a couple of kids for blissful floating all day, every day.
While you’re relaxing you’ll want a snack, right? Well, now they have remote controlled floating coolers that you can get to your side in seconds. There are also floating coolers on the market that drift along and keep your beverages close at hand.
If you like your tunes but don’t want to risk … Read the rest

I understand there are parents out there who can not have a stay-at-home mom or dad in the family; and I applaud these families for doing the best that they can, the best way they know how. I don’t want to appear as if I’ve intentionally excluded those who can not work from home, or appear disconnected somehow from you. Having been a working mom myself, I know all too well of the sacrifices one makes to provide for her kids. That being said, let’s continue with the article. Shall we?
When I talk about a “decorating diet”, I’m suggesting getting rid of the items around us that make things complicated. You can either hold a garage sale, and let someone else love your finds as much as you once did; or you can just simply pack things up, and store them away in the attic. The point is that by clearing away every unnecessary item, you are giving yourself … Read the rest
