Before & After: A Sleek, Modern Update to a Tiny Bathroom — Sweeten

(Image credit: Sweeten )

When Maria and Eric bought their two-bedroom apartment in Queens, they knew the bathroom would need an overhaul. Moldering tile and aging, mismatched features meant the bathroom’s aesthetics weren’t great, but the real issue in this small space was a serious lack of storage. So they set about turning a decrepit space that had seen better days into a bright, modern bathroom — and added a few clever storage solutions along the way.

Home Improvement Tips To Rejuvenate Your Home

Coming home to a cluttered house of unfinished projects or just one needing repairs is an immensely frustrating end to your already stressful day. But with a little bit of effort and money, you can make your home a place that you are happy to come home to each day. Use these tips to upgrade your home!

Punch holes in the paint can rim with a nail. The rim tends to fill up with paint, which will leak over the can and onto the floor when the lid is replaced. By making holes around the top of your paint can you can avoid this issue.

TIP! If you are purchasing a house, have your home inspected by a professional. This way, you’ll be clear on what repairs or replacements need to be made.

The kitchen is a great place to start with home improvements. First, mix TSP and water half and half and scrub the walls. This will spiff them up and have them quickly ready for repainting. Neutral, tan colors work well in all kinds of kitchens. Once you’ve finished re-painting, you’ll be impressed with how dramatic the difference is.

Two-liter bottles can be used in your kitchen as storage containers. You can see what’s inside, be it salt or beans. They can conveniently be stored on a shelf or inside your refrigerator of freezer. You can pop off the cap and the contents will pour right out.

If your home renovation project involves work in the bathroom or kitchen, make sure to shut off the water. Any time your work involves the pipes or water supply in your home, you need to locate the shutoff before starting your work. This step will help you prevent a flood.

TIP! If you have old shoe boxes handy, then you have extra storage for any room. Cover the shoe boxes in fabric, paint or wallpaper to give them a pleasing design.

Locate your gas shutoff valve before beginning a project that involves your fireplace, kitchen appliances or anything else related to your gas line. You should exhibit caution when you are doing this. If you don’t heed our warning, a fire or injury will likely be the result.

Stop bugs from entering your home by sealing cracks. Apply caulking around windows, baseboards and other places that need it. Once the caulking is dry, bugs will be hard-pressed to find a way inside, and air will not be allowed out.

Houses with good curb appeal often sell for considerably higher prices than other similar homes. The thing you have to remember is that not all potential buyers see a view in the same way; some might consider it an expensive indulgence. Do some landscaping if you believe you can improve the view but keep in mind that this is not the only thing you can do to improve the value of your home.

TIP! Use empty two-liter bottles as storage containers for your kitchen. They are transparent and are great for storing sugar, flour and similar staples.

There is nothing that’s as great as getting home after having a hard day to a house that looks great. Follow these tips, and you will soon be making some beautiful home improvements. Continue to work hard on your project, even if you are simply tackling a single project at one time. Your dream home can be yours with commitment.

Great Ideas To See Your Fashion Soar

Being educated properly when it comes to fashion relies on finding what you are comfortable in. You can look at a number of different outlets that feature useful fashion information that is optimized for comfort. Discover how fashion plays into your own life and what it can mean to you.

For an easy and fast fashion boost, wear a belt. There are so many varieties of belts available, from different colors to different sizes and textures, it’s easy to make your look unique. For instance, spice up your skinny jeans with a bright belt. Or, for a more formal look, wear a black belt.

TIP! Jeans are easy to dress up with a button down shirt and some high heels, but this works best if your jeans are black. Save the other jean colors for a fashion statement that is more on the casual side.

Purses can make or break any outfit. If you must carry other bags besides your purse, be sure the bags complement each other. So when you do bring a purse, make sure that it complements your outfit as well as anything else that you bring. You should only ever have a maximum of two bags on you at the same time.

Don’t buy something simply because of a great price. If the item doesn’t go with anything your currently own or it doesn’t fit well, it isn’t worth the price, no matter how much of a bargain you perceive it to be. Instead, it will languish in your closet, reminding you of money you shouldn’t have spent.

Sheer clothes can add a lot of sex appeal to your look, just ensure that you are comfortable wearing these clothes. Wearing clothing items that are sheer in private areas can make you appear trashy rather than classy.

TIP! Don’t overstock your beauty kit with makeup. Just keep a few types of makeup products you use the most.

Stay aware of the current trends in fashion. You can remain in the loop by subscribing to a few fun fashion magazines. They usually share the new trends before anyone else.

When it come to fashionable hair accessories, there are many options to choose from. You can purchase something to hold your hair back, pretty bows that will ramp up the effect of any outfit and more. Having some different types of accessories around is a smart move for the fashion-conscious person. If you have a workout outfit, choose a headband that matches it. If you want to go out for a night of fun, a sequined hairband can finish your look.

If your hair tends to frizz, avoid vigorously rubbing it with a towel after a shower. This can also damage the quality of your hair due to the roughness. Wrap your hair in the towel instead so soak up the moisture. When your hair is no longer sopping wet, untangle the knots using a comb.

TIP! Options simply abound in fashionable hair accessories. For example, you can go into any store and find a variety of headbands, ponytail holders and hair bows.

Some people think fashion is just about clothing. Hair can make or break any outfit that you wear. Taking the time to find the right hair products for your hair will help ensure that the quality of your hair style keeps pace with your fashion sense.

As mentioned earlier, fashion is all about being comfortable with yourself, and you can then truly express who you are. Keep an eye out for new fashion trends that may work well for you. Keep these tips in mind as you try to improve your fashion.
