7 Essential Décor Items Every Bathroom Needs

Like all the other locations of our home, bathroom requires equal importance to look unique and elegant. Fortunately, we live in a time where we have a variety of ideas for bathroom décor to achieve this desired purpose. From DIY bathroom mirrors to green pots and plants, we can beautify our bathrooms more than ever. So, to provide our readers the knowledge of some must-have décor items, we have compiled a list of “7 Essential Décor Items Every Bathroom Needs”, they are:

  • DIY Bathroom Mirrors: A simple décor item for bathrooms is a DIY bathroom mirror. The shape, size and color, all depend upon the theme of your bathroom. If it’s a plain white theme then you can have oval or circular shaped mirrors with their exterior being plain white. Similarly if your bathroom has a vintage design, the mirrors should also be in the confinements of that design.

  • Bold Typography: Typography attracts attention. An amazing way to make your bathroom unique is to place bold typography above and over your bathroom items. Beautiful fonts and colors will also play an important role while making use of this décor item.

  • Hand Towels: A perfect bathroom always consists of hand towels. If you have not placed them yet then you are missing out. Hand towels should match the color scheme of your bathroom and there should be at least a couple of them present at the same time on beautiful hooks or other DIY holding equipment.

  • Storage Shelves: Storage shelves add a completely new perspective to your bathroom. Since they are not so much common for bathrooms, they provide a unique vibe to the guests. Also, storage shelves provide you the comfort of storing laundry items, spare hand towels and all the excess bathroom supplies.

  • Art: Beautiful artwork provides a tranquil sense to your guests. They add meaning to this location of your home and makes it interesting to visit. Place the artwork above the sink or somewhere it will be most visible to your guests.

  • Terra-Cotta Floor: Handmade terra-cotta tiles really make your floor look vibrant and adds a new flavor to the décor of your bathroom. Once again, the colors should be chosen wisely to match the style and design of your bathroom.

  • Green Pots and Plants: Want to add a natural element to your bathroom? Greenery serves the purpose perfectly. Place a few plants around your bathroom to make it look greener and environment friendly.

7 Solutions for Household Clutter

For a smart living and an efficient home, clutter is never helpful. If you have those retired boxes and jars lying around which are not serving any specific purpose, or may be a sock, an old shoe, you need to get rid of all of them. Decluttering is an art itself, it makes you analyze what you should get rid of and then makes you implement it. Also, there are a lot of unique ideas of decluttering which not necessarily require you to get rid of something completely, instead you can use it in a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) project of yours. So just to help out our readers on getting rid of their clutter, we have compiled this list of “7 Solutions for Household Clutter”, they are:

  • Jars for Office Supplies: Jars serve as an efficient storage for office supplies. They give out a unique vibe and you have tons of them lying around, empty and useless. So make good use of them.
  • Shoe Boxes for Books and Letters: If you have lots and lots of books and letters which you are unable to arrange, make use of shoe boxes. We all have many empty shoe boxes and they are the perfect storage for books and letters. Also, for more efficiency, you can categorize books and letters by labelling the shoe boxes.
  • Donate or Sell Clothes Never Worn: It if has been a year and you haven’t worn a dress, looks like it’s about time to let it go. A good way is to either donate or sell such type of clothing to cut down the clutter even more.
  • Ditch the Sock without a Sole Mate: Quite a lot of times after laundry, we find out that a sock’s partner is missing. And it happens so often that soon you have a whole pile of socks’ missing their sole mates. You need to ditch all such socks.
  • Ditch Your Expired Makeup: Did you know that all those makeup items you have in your bag are meant to be used for a particular amount of time. Such as, mascara is meant to be used within three months, lipstick and eye shadow within two years and foundation within about a year. So if any of the makeup items has lasted longer than the mentioned durations, it’s time for them to go.
  • Throw Away All the Expired Food: Look around for the canned food which might have passed their expiration date, if there is any, you need to get rid of it to declutter your fridge and your home altogether. If there is food which isn’t expired but you won’t like to eat, consider donating it to the local food pantry.
  • Give Away All Those Movies You Don’t Like: Do you have VHS tapes of movies which you don’t like or won’t like to watch again? If yes, then you need to give away all such movies, either to friends or simply sell to a used electronics store.

5 Reasons to Install Custom Wood Shutters

Windows are the eyes of your home. These eyes lead the way of a lot of heat, light and unnecessary air into your home, if not properly handled. So comes the use of window treatments, they help us manipulate the incoming light, heat and air. Although each have their own unique and individual properties, shutters seem to stand a class apart from its competitors. So, to help our readers better understand why to choose shutters and specifically wood shutters, we have compiled a list of “5 Reasons to Install Custom Wood Shutters”:

  • Low Maintenance: Unlike its competitors, wood shutters are really easy to maintain. Blinds and Shutters are very difficult to clean and if not properly cleaned, they can become home to dust mites whereas wood shutters can easily be cleaned by using a wet cloth.

  • Better Light and Air Control: Wood shutters once again beats its competitors when it comes to light and air control. The traditional wood shutters are more adjustable than blinds because they allow either light enter and not air, or air enter and not light. This makes wood shutters remarkable and stand out. To make such use of wood shutters, angling the louvers upwards will allow natural light into the room, whereas angling the louvers downwards will allow cool breeze enter without compromising on the lighting of the room.

  • Helps Your Home Become Energy Efficient: Wood shutters are environment friendly, they are helpful to control the room temperature especially when there is a bit of plantation around it. This factor eliminates the unnecessary usage of electricity. Wood shutters are suitable for large picture windows or single pane windows because they do not let out a reasonable amount of heat in the winters and a reasonable amount of cool air in the summer.

  • Adds Beauty and Worth to Your Home: Customized wood shutters add to the beauty of your home. Depending upon the color scheme of your rooms, or home all together, you can always count on placing customized wood shutters on your windows with appropriate designs and colors. Also, according to the IRS, shutters are the only window treatments which are considered to improve the worth of your home.

  • A Wide Variety: Wood shutters come in all the different shapes, designs, sizes and colors. You can have them customized right according to your needs, to match and to add beauty to your home.

10 Summer Home Activities for Kids

Summer season for parents means that your kids are going to stay at home during the summer vacations. To keep your kids active and entertained this summer, you need to provide them some simple and Do-It-Yourself activities. Here in this post, we have compiled a list of “10 Summer Home Activities for Kids” which your kids can enjoy this summer:

  • Do-It-Yourself Tarp Game: A fun and interesting DIY game is the tarp game. All you have to do is to cut hole of various shapes and sizes in the tarp, mark each hole with some points and then hang the tarp vertically in your backyard. To play this game, your kids will then throw the ball to pass through the different holes and score points. Taking turns, this game will keep your kids busy for a long time.

  • Outdoor Board Game: With the use of some tape, you can make a board game on your porch or somewhere outdoors. You would write activities such as sing a song, water dance, do the chicken dance in the boxes of the board game. Kids will use a single or a couple of dice, the total score on the dice will determine the steps the player has to move forward and perform the activity written on the box where the player would have stopped.

  • At-Home Bowling Game: A simple yet interesting game is the At-Home bowling game. This game involves pencil erasers as bowling pins and marbles as bowling balls. It has to be played on a smooth card board to ensure that the marble rolls over properly.

  • Sticky Spider web Game: Use of tape to make a spider web like structure and paper balls are all you need to make your kids busy in the sticky spider web activity.

  • Popcorn Olympics: For this simple activity, all you need to do is make a bowl of popcorn, give your kids straws and piece of popcorn each. Then over a calculated distance your kids will blow into their straws to push the piece of popcorn forward, the one whose piece of popcorn covers the distance first, will win!

  • Indoor Camping: To keep your kids indoors, you can deploy indoor camps. Your kids can have fun crafting their own campfire too.

  • Exploding Paint Bags: You can use zip seal sandwich bags, corn starch, vinegar and liquid watercolors to make exploding paint bags. After mixing these materials, you need to seal the bags and shake them really good. They will soon start popping.

  • Stomp Paintings: If you have some leftover bubble wraps lying around then you can provide your kids a fun stomp paintings activity. All you have to do is to cut pieces of bubble wraps in shape of socks, your kids will then wear them and step into a watercolor utensil to make the bubble wrap covered with color. Then place a large piece of white paper on the floor so that your kids can walk on it while wearing their watercolor covered bubble wraps, resulting in stomp paintings.

  • Balloon Ping-Pong: A game of only three materials; a balloon, a couple of Popsicle sticks and a couple of paper plates. Stick the Popsicle sticks to the paper plates to make their combination look like a Ping-Pong paddle. Use a helium filled balloon as your Ping-Pong ball and have hours of fun.

  • Indoor Slides: If you have a staircase at your home, a fun DIY idea is to turn your old cardboard box into a slide and place it on your staircase. This activity will require a lot of parental supervision.
