There is nothing quite like the joy of a meal that turns out just like you wanted it to. If you love to cook, the kitchen is your happy place. Cooking up a storm gives you calm, relaxation and gratification.
Your affinity for the kitchen could easily become a stressful experience, though. Over time, appliances start to get dated, faucets get faulty and the space becomes less pleasant to cook in. Factors such as advancement in age or having children in the home can also make the space no longer suited to your needs.
All is not lost, there are affordable changes you can make to salvage your kitchen without having to tear it apart. Read on.
Even if you might not necessarily be the type to be bothered by a cramped living space, there is no denying that it is often tied to stress. You might not think it’s a big deal, but if you happen to have a stressful day at work, coming home to a cramped space can add even more frustration to the stress of your day. The worst part is that for many, there is no real way to be stress-free by adding more physical space, when someone lives in an apartment, or perhaps one of the ever-popular tiny homes!
Fortunately, you do not have to worry about making any drastic changes to get the job done. There are ways to make cramped homes feel less like the walls are closing in and more accommodating. Here are just a few stress-free methods to follow along with!
Giving your bathroom the royal treatment

It is always an exciting moment when you make the decision to redecorate your home, but you might find it difficult to know exactly where to start. From replacing tired flooring to choosing your new colour scheme, there are many things to look forward to, but each stage in the process will require you to make some big decisions.
Below, we have put together some of our top tips for redecorating your home. From the benefits of wood floors to the power of plants, follow these tips to complete your home décor.
One of the tips that you can consider when it comes to your home décor is to make sure you choose flooring for your home. There are many different flooring options, which can make it difficult to find the right one for you. Remember that, while they may look plush and comfortable at first, carpets have a habit of getting tired very quickly and, in the long term, may not be the cost-effective option they appear to be. If you are looking for flooring but you are not sure which option will be right for you then, take a look at the wood flooring options to give you a better idea of what you can get.
I’m not sure if I’ve ever talked about this here on the blog before, but I’m the daughter of a building contractor. Some of my earliest memories are of visiting construction sites with my dad. He’d stop and grab me breakfast on those early mornings, and we’d go check his sites. Bonus for me if there were piles of fresh sand I could play in or stacks of concrete blocks I could climb! In fact, from concrete blocks on construction sites to concrete blocks stored in our backyard at home to my dad having his own mixer and mixing and pouring concrete any time he wanted…well, I’ve been around concrete a bit in my time. But it’s fascinated me recently how versatile concrete REALLY is! Have you ever considered concrete for YOUR home?
Concrete is the most preferred choice for flooring in high-traffic areas. It has a longer life when compared to other materials. However, concrete is susceptible to moisture and chemicals.
You can protect it and extend its durability with polyaspartic coating. As a protective layer, this coating enhances the resistance of a floor to chemicals, wear, and humidity. Also, it increases the aesthetics and color of the floor surface.
The beginning of the new year is the perfect time to get a fresh start on cleaning and organizing your home. As many of us know, after rounding out 2019 with all of the back to back holidays, your house can start to feel as though it has taken on more clutter than ever before. But the question is, how do you properly manage and store your belongings without having to do a complete purge? Is there a way to implement effective storage solutions without breaking the bank? Thanks to useful storage hacks, making room for your supplies doesn’t have to be as daunting as it sounds and you can finally reclaim your living spaces from all of the clutter.
Every weekend when you take that long-awaited trip to the grocery store, you come back with all the essential supplies you need for the week and those big, huge packs of paper towels and toilet paper. Obviously, those are two incredibly important items in any household but where in the world are you supposed to store those massive packages? The easiest solution you can try only requires a hanging shoe shelf organizer. They typically cost around $10 and are easy to set up in any closet. They are perfect for storing rolls of toilet paper or paper towels and keeping them organized and out of the way.
For a more hands-on hack to store specifically paper towels, you can install four hooks and two bungee cords against the wall. Place two hooks at the bottom of the wall and the other two up high enough so that the bungee cords will have some tension when they are stretched. Hook the bungee cord to the hook so they are both vertically positioned. Then, just start stacking your paper towel rolls horizontally up the extent of the bungee cord. Allow the bungee cord’s tension to hold the paper towels in place and then, forget about it. This hack is perfect for the inside of a pantry or cleaning closet to keep paper towels stored neatly and out of the way.
