2018 - A New Year for A New Home


What are your New Year resolutions for 2018? Is buying a new home one of them? Well, hold that thought. How about revamping your current home into a whole new house? Sounds good, right? Let's get started.

1. A Modern Lick of Paint

Lavender is in season this year. I wonder where this color has been all along because suddenly, lavender paints are running out of stock. Painting your home makes a whole lot of difference. The trick is to do something different yet creative. But don't go overboard with color.

Tip: You can rarely go wrong with bright and neutral colors.




2. Let the Light In

Look around your home and identify "sunlight spots". If there is a way you can let this light in, by all means, do it. A big, open replacement window works magic. The secret is to add extra touches like a few potted plants or window sofas to make use of that space. And if security is not a problem for you, invest in broad windows panes for the other rooms as well. Not forgetting rooftop windows; although this largely depends on your roofing design. 

Tip: The larger the windows, the more the light.




3. Make a Fashion Statement with Decor

It's time for the old decor to go and let in new ideas. How about starting with your sunroom or conservatory? Here is what you can do;
  • Use a bright color to naturally reflect the sunlight and make your room look brighter.
  • Add colored throw cushions (a bright color mixed with a dark one blend better).
  • Use a small fluffy carpet or any neatly woven rug beside your furniture.
  • Minimize the use of furniture to add more living space.
  • Use DIY decor vases to add style.
Tip: These ideas are excellent for sun-rooms and lounges, but you can also apply them to other rooms.

4. Fix the Broken Fixtures

Broken fixtures make your home look old and uninviting. Broken door knobs, handles, and the likes must go. Some of these repairs can be minor, but they will make a huge difference in your home.

Tip: To reduce the budget try a few DIYs to repair simple fixtures like door knobs.

5. Spread the Love to Your Bathrooms

Showers are the least considered rooms when doing renovations: Maybe because they tend to be hidden in the corners. This year, don't forget your bathrooms. Add a few stylish mirrors and decor to awaken them. Include custom made storage units as well.




Tip: Re-purposed wrought iron shelving is the new trend. They make your bathrooms look rustic.

July Celebrations Outdoors: Summer Entertaining Made Easy

Summer is finally here; a season to be carefree, laid-back, and relaxed, right? If you frequently entertain during the summer months, you may be thinking this time is anything but relaxing! After all, planning parties and hosting events for friends and family is no easy feat. If you're worried about the time, money, effort, and stress that have previously accompanied summertime get-togethers, read on for some helpful tips to make your summer bash the best yet!


Enlist help.  Whether this be from family members in your house, a close friend, or even guests coming to your party! Delegate small tasks before, during, and after the event to reduce the workload on yourself and help keep the responsibilities and the mess at bay. Aunt Sally likely won't mind bringing out appetizers to the poolside while you make drinks, and your spouse can greet guests at the door so they make their way to the hub of the party faster. If your get-together is large, consider asking a friend to cohost w…

Summertime in your Sunroom

So, you're thinking about adding a Four-Season sunroom onto your home. Sunrooms let light into your home and into your life. There are many ways to make your sunroom unique to you all year round. Summer is a time of warmth and growth, why not for your home too?
Nature brought inside  The biggest and most obvious way to decorate your sunroom in the summer is to add flowers. You can also add plants, vines, and water features. The Four-Seasons official Pinterest page has many summer ideas, especially nature related ones. It's an easy and common way to bring life and color to a sun-bathed space.
Artwork in your home  If plants or flowers aren't your thing, or you can't seem to keep them alive, you can go for artwork. A sunroom is a perfect space for art in 3D forms. I don't mean sculptures though. If Sculptures are your thing, then go for it! I'm talking about less expensive and smaller 3D art though. Like pillows, blankets, and other moveable decorations. The bes…

Summer Sunroom Fun: An Old Fashioned Independence Day Celebration

The 4th of July is a fantastic opportunity for friends and family to gather together. And because it is summertime, what could be better than an outdoor party? Your sunroom provides an essential component of the perfect backyard celebration.

 Even though your guest may eat and mingle in your backyard, set up the food table and paper goods inside your sunroom. Having the food table in the sunroom means there is easy access both to a kitchen area as well as the yard, but it also provides some protection from direct sunlight, wind, or bugs that may want to join your party.  Your sunroom can become a unique expression of the holiday. Do you want a "small-town" feel for your 4th of July party? Use galvanized tin buckets or wooden crates to hold paper goods and utensils. Decorate the table with red, white and blue bandannas, and put tea lights or candles in Mason jars as evening approaches. Decorate the sunroom windows with banners or pennants made from scraps of vintage fabric.
