The bathroom can be one of the dirtiest rooms in the house. Regardless of the fact that you clean the bathroom on a daily basis it is mandatory that every few months you clean it thoroughly. Biggest issues of the bathroom cleanliness are mould, bathroom scale, rust and bacteria.

Mould

The bathroom is a hotbed for mould, because it is humid and usually ventilation in the bathrooms can be poor. In order to prevent the formation of the mould, you have to change those conditions. Leave the window open at least while in the shower.

Keep the surfaces in your bathroom clean, especially from the shampoo, oil and cream remains. Dry your wet towels outside of the bathroom and buy shower curtains made of synthetic materials that not absorb so much liquid.

The way to fight against mould depends on how much mould there is and how long it has been present. If there were a big job ahead of you, you’d better choose the cleaner that contains less hazardous chemicals to avoid inhaling them. Experts point out that the most effective weapon against the mould is water and a microfiber cleaning cloth that has great absorbency. To reach all angles in your bathroom, use an old toothbrush.

If this does not help then the best solution is bleaching. Mix the water and the liquid bleach in scale 3 to 1 and try with that. If this method is not effective, make a stronger concentrate.

If you have cracked all the aces, and hardened mould is still coming back, maybe it is time to change the silicone on the edges of the tub (replace it with sanitary silicon containing fungicide). If you find that the fungus ducked under tiles or that mould breaks all over the walls, maybe then the best solution is a complete adaptation of the bathroom. Use the materials that are resistant to mould.

Scale and rust

Not only do scale and rust look ugly, but they can cause big problems and failures. For thorough cleaning, you do not have to buy expensive set of cleaning agents. All you need is white alcohol vinegar, lemon, water, some eucalyptus oil, sponge, and microfiber cloth. Mix the vinegar, water and 20 – 30 drops of eucalyptus oil to remove the scale from the sink, toilet and the tub, and to give them a new glow.

Remove scale and rust from the taps with the pure vinegar. Soak the cloth in vinegar and leave it on the faucets for an hour. This will make the scale and rust easy to remove with the sponge and cloth.

Bacteria

The biggest source of the bacteria in the bathroom are clogged drains and scaled faucets. Unclog the drains and clean them regularly with the water and vinegar mixture.

Next in line of the risky bacteria sources are towels and sponges. Towels stay damp for a long time and we know that humidity is a heaven for bacteria. You should change the towels, at least, every three days and wash them. Cloths and sponges you use to wash the bathroom too often must be washed and disinfected. In addition, another thing: it is best to use them only in the bathroom.

Cleaning the bathroom for many represents the most hated job in the house. Regularly cleaning of the bathroom is mandatory. If you organize well, you will realize that this obligation will not take much time. Hopefully some of these advices will help you. Put your gloves on and let your bathroom shine.

 

The problem of space is definitely becoming one of the burning issues in many urban areas all over the world. As the number of urban dwellers of Asia and Africa is on the constant rise, the demand for these types of homes and furniture is also growing on global scale. This market is a wonderful chance for innovative design and new business ideas. But why do smaller homes take over the dominance from their bigger real estate brothers?

Work(er)-friendly benefits of small homes

If you live on your own and pursue a promising career, chores will not be too high on the list of your priorities. Modern urban people mostly avoid bothering with things that are impractical or time-consuming. Doing a responsible and challenging job leaves little time for home cleaning. Living with a partner shrinks the amount of cleaning time even more, since you want to spend quality time together instead of scrubbing your tile flooring. Large apartments require more of such care. That is why today less is more in housing terms.

Small but well-organized apartments and houses can be incredibly inspiring for people who work from home. In such homes everything is at the reach of your hand, which can save a lot of time during a workday. So, tiny and small homes have two great roles for busy people: they save our time and motivate us to work more efficiently.

Space-sparing furniture for little homes

Pieces of furniture that are easily folded, rolled away or tucked in a gap in the wall are not a product of the 21st century. The most famous folding bed, the Murphy bed, has been here for more than a century and it has only been improved through different variations. The bed is the king of room space (especially a king-size one) since it takes up the largest amount of space in a small, one-room home. Today folding beds are made to be perfectly incorporated into other pieces of furniture and they are often followed by many other items of such kind, so that you would save even more space. Furniture items in today’s miniature homes can be categorized as fittings, foldables and doubles.

  • Fittings are great space savers, since they practically have all sorts of compartments into which you can put your belongings and keep your place tidy and cozy. For instance, stairs that are at the same time drawers can serve as great areas to fit your books and clothes. Also, several chairs fitting into one another resembling Matryoshka dolls can be a great option for a small home living room.

  • Foldables are probably the most represented items out of these three groups. Tables can be attached to a wall and embellished with a painting, appearing to be a frame. But you just drag the ”frame“ down and you have a nice little dining table. Also, a mirror can become a practical ironing board when folded down. It is a great option for a bedroom. In addition to all these ideas, a bathroom cabinet door can be used as a changing table for babies.
  • Finally, doubles function like any compartment with a false bottom. Your kitchen table can actually hide a pools table beneath its surface. Also, a painting frame can have an additional underlying partition for storing costume jewelry or documents. However, for storing real jewelry and valuables, it is advisable to install a real safe.

Psychological effect of small homes

Although some people claim that they need a large living space to feel good, the thing is that smaller homes often tend to have a better effect on people. Singles often feel terribly lonely in large apartments and couples can go either way, but it is a fact that they will feel closer and more attached in smaller homes. The emotional value of such a place becomes priceless if they have also made it together, like this great couple. And if partners are adventurers, they can make a moving home and live as modern nomads, especially if they work as freelancer via the Internet.

Large homes can offer more comfort, but they also require more money, time and energy, leaving a bigger carbon print on the environment. Modern small homes, on the other side, are based on an alternative way of living, which can have a great effect on people squished with the fast-paced lifestyle of today. You don’t need mansions to be lucky; only your own little haven, sweet modular furniture and time to do what you like in your life.

Candles have always been a practical and beautiful ornament in our homes. Apart from providing an additional, source of mild light, candles also have numerous other purposes. They embellish every room and provide it with the subtle scent, making the air in the room fresh and pleasant. Today, candles of various shapes, colors and scents can be bought, but our choice usually depends on their price. However, what would you say if we told you that you could make a candle on your own? Homemade candles are affordable, since you practically make them out of things you already posses.

The wax is then poured to the candle container, in which was a candlewick was previously placed and fastened by two chopsticks. Finally, you need to leave the candle for a couple of hours to cool.

How to make and decorate candleholder?

Now, here is more creative process. Choosing a perfect candleholder and its decoration is one of the most interesting parts of this procedure. Firstly, you have to determine what kind of a candleholder you actually want to make. You can choose the design and the material you want to use.

One of the most creative ideas is making an indoor candleholder from a small piece of branch. All you have to do is to have an appropriate tool in order to drill it from inside, making enough space for a candle. Since the candle is practically within the holder, its light and scent are reduced. This technique of making a candleholder is quite simple, cheap and it serves its aesthetical function.

You could also make tiny candleholders out of plaster, which looks really nice. However, although it seems as more complicated process, don’t be discouraged. Following the steps for making it, you will definitely succeed.

These instructions will simply help you to achieve your goal, but you can choose any design and method you like. Such candles will bejewel your home, giving it sophistication and mild scent.

Getting things done with my two hands and some tools was always a source of great joy for me. Yes, I am definitely one of those DIY maniacs that will try to fix things a hundred times on their own before calling a professional to do it.

Naturally, I know that the type of table like the one that I made can be found for a lot less money then I paid for the material just to make it, but the hours and hours of fun and satisfaction when you are able to say “I made this!” are priceless.

On the other hand, I think that there is nothing more frustrating than having the urge and an idea to finish a project, only to find out that you don’t have the tools to get it done.

Therefore, here is the list of tools that I cannot live without. This time, I’ll just skip the basic hammer and screwdriver things as they go without saying.

Oscillating Multi-Tool

If I had to choose and save only one tool from my collection from a raging fire, I’d probably go for this thing. My reason would be the fact that it covers such a vast array of things that you can do with it and it is easy to use.

It cuts down on the time that you waste on doing boring things and gives you more time to do the stuff that you like about your project. It is basically a motor that has a lot of extensions and accessories.

Depending on the power of the motor, you can use it for cutting, grinding, scraping, grout removal, you name it!

Cordless Power Drill

When I started making things and fixing things, I couldn’t believe that making a hole in something can be so demanding. But a power drill solves a lot of problems in that area. Since it is that fast, the hole rarely damage the surrounding area which is pretty neat.

Another things that I hated is tripping over the cords, finding the power socket to plug in the drill and reach the place where I want to drill. Needless to say, a cordless drill has been a dream come true for me.

Compact Saw

I love woodworking. Naturally, if you are into woodwork, you need to cut some wood and you need to cut it frequently. So, what you really need is a good tool to make that happen.

A compact saw will make this job perfectly easy to do. It may not be as strong and as useful as the big circular saw, but it has its advantages.

It is small and easy to handle and it can reach places that a big saw cannot. You can easily handle it and easily transport it which is important for me as I mess around friend’s homes as well. Also, the maneuverability is amazing.

Angle Grinder

I am no stranger to metalwork as well. I’m not as much into it as I am into woodworking, but from time to time, some metal pieces just need to be fixed.

Angle grinder is that tool that you use for removing excess material from the metal. As the name suggests itself, it is used to grind metal, to sand it and anything else that comes into your mind.

It is all about choosing the proper disc for the job you need done and taking the power of the motor into consideration.

Quick Painter

Putting a fresh coat of paint is my annual spring routine. It feels like a new home to me when I do it. However, it would be a much harder job without a quick painter.

The painting itself is not that hard, but the mess that happens is what kills the joy of the whole thing.

My quick painter has a container in which you put the paint and then just press the pad against the wall and the paint comes out. It also has the attachment for the angles which is truly a life saver.

Spray Gun

There are many types of spray guns depending on the way they work. Mine is a regular air spray gun. The whole point is that it is under pressure and you fill it with paint or whatnot and it will disperse that liquid on the surface of your choice. I use it to paint my woodwork mostly as I want to avoid the brush strokes.

My friends used it to paint their car. When you think about it, the uses are very diverse, you just need to figure out how to operate it.

I don’t know a DIY lover who isn’t crazy about tools.

This is just a shortlist of the stuff that I have in my tool shed, but if I had to organize a new place for my projects, these would be the things that I’d buy first.

Modern crib is simply not complete without some cool artwork to bring in some style and life to it. It seems that art has never been so available in all its forms, especially when it comes to interior design.

The rules and trends about art pieces are flexible now and there are some very interesting art pieces that could easily find place in some of the modern style cribs.

Here are some examples of this cool modern day art.

Inside Graffiti

Urban style looks really cool. So, it comes logically to try and bring in some of the street art inside. This is a very cool and a very interesting example for it.

This is Chris Brown’s apartment in which he left a really awesome graffiti piece on the wall. Those bright colors are well supported by pretty basic and dark color of the floor and furniture and the light is just perfect for that street charm. The whole apartment is just fun because of it.

Wall Sculptures

When there is enough space and the design of the room allows it, a way to go with the sculptures nowadays is to make them into wall sculptures. In that way, it seems like a fusion of wall painting and sculpture and the texture and the ambiance that such artwork creates makes the home a very interesting place to be at.

This third dimension added to the place on which you expect to find a painting is just the touch of modern at that makes it interesting and more enjoyable.

Artsy Furniture

Modern art is all about blending, redefining, reinventing and making new uses of the old things. Therefore, it is easy to imagine that some forms of contemporary art pieces can very well and very easily serve as furniture.

In that way, you get usable art that brings in style and adds real quality to your everyday life. We all know about the big, red, lip shaped, pop art sofa. Here is something in that direction and how such stuff look in modern versions of home.

You need a really big place to have this sculpture in, but if you consider that it can be used as a bed or a type of sofa at the same time, it seems a bit easier to decide on using it in your home.

However, the really cool design of it justifies the space it will take up.

Another chair like that is this lovely rattan chair. Its form resembles a real sculpture, while it is obvious that it is still furniture. However, not only does it look good, but it also redefines the way you sit and keep your entire body while you talk to somebody.

You have to lean over and turn. This forces you to pay attention to the person with whom you are communicating. This is a far more artistic piece of furniture that it may seem on the first glance because of this function that it has.

Modern Day Animal Trophies

Of course, you won’t go killing animals and severing their heads just to put them on the walls. Something like that would be totally inexcusable.

However, we all know that there used to be such way of decorating homes and it is fun to see the modern version of art that communicates with that old style of decoration and still introduces the modern form, material and look in general. Wyatt Ellison has made this elegant and interesting bear head to be mounted on the wall.

It is just a perfect piece for a modern home that wants art with a good message but not too pretentious so that it can still find its place in a home rather than in a gallery.

Outro

If you want a very elegant and cool look for your crib today, it means that the art that you are bringing in and choosing to be a part of your everyday life has to be thought provoking but it also needs to stay within the limits of the interior design and not overstep it as too much art in home renders it useless and misses out the point of art.

And of home.

Have you ever had a feeling, while observing a particular home décor piece that it will never go out of fashion? Well, that is completely true.

No matter what their initial purpose was, some elements will always embellish your private space, giving it a sense of elegance and sophistication.

These essentials can be either certain pieces of furniture or even some ornamental details. More importantly, their use can be extended to various purposes.

Comfort In The First Place

While some pieces of furniture could look overly aggressive or require a lot of space, the other ones add style and personality to it. Such things are Bruno chair and Chinese garden stool. Bruno chair is of simple contours and it is a great mixture of modern and classical features.

As its design is very plain, it could be used on various occasions, from the office to the dinning chair. However, Chinese garden stool is of smaller dimensions, but very elegant and gives the room an exquisite tone. Also, the diapason of its use varies from a garden chair to a stool or even a footrest.

However, another great option for your room could be a Saarinen-style table, which simply radiates with its beauty and simplicity. Its elegant but at the same time simple looks can be used on various occasions, from a casual place where you can drink your morning coffee to a formal dining table.

It Is The Little Details That Are Vital

The fundamental fact is that there are many other details that would fill your private space in such an exceptional way. Light fixtures have always been a great idea both to brighten and embellish your rooms. One of them is certainly a porter floor lamp, which is a great mixture of modern and traditional design. It offers a lot of diverse purposes, and most importantly, it can fit almost anywhere.

Plug-in sconces could also be a great solution, since they require very little room. They are undoubtedly adequate for places that require moderate lighting, but also serve as an additional source of light beside your bed or at your desk. However, there are also many other ways to brighten and decorate your space at the same time, and the statement mirrors could certainly be a great solution for you.

They are edged with the finest, polished metal in various forms and shapes that are chosen by the customer. Except they look as a real piece of art, they emphasize the beauty of your room giving it a completely new dimension.

Since they can fit anywhere, you can choose to install them wherever you want. If you think that your living room or your bedroom is too plain, Mongolian pillows could undoubtedly serve the purpose. They are fluffy, soft and always bring a taste of sophistication.

However, those with more creative ideas, and of course, with large amounts of money, undertake some more extreme ventures, such as building eco friendly houses.

The interior of the house is really amazing. The rooms are immense and classy, designed and organized by many eminent architects and designers. As Cheatham stated, the most prominent part of her house is the kitchen since she loves to cook, but also to throw parties and have dozens of people around. Natural materials, such as walnut cabinets and gray-veined statuary marble counters make the kitchen look upscale.

Another enormous and beautifully designed room is the dining room, with the astonishing view from floor-to ceiling windows. However, there are many details in the room, such as a long custom table or simple leather chairs that are simply charming. The bench by a famous architect Christian Liaigre takes up a special place in the room. The vivacity of the whole place is achieved by adding elements such as tiny vases that hold fresh orchids.

Moreover, the exterior of the house is also fascinating. In a luxurious patio, which was completely sheltered from the sun, takes one’s breath away. Apart from furniture, there is a beautiful koi pond. Also, the house has large pool and the outdoor kitchen.

The Touch Of The Nature

All in all, there are many facts about the house that simply have to fascinate us. Firstly, the house looks magnificent, and undoubtedly resembles one of those houses from a fairytale. On the other hand, it has refuted beliefs that the eco friendly houses have to be plain, and probably uncomfortable.

Cheatham herself stated that this house is the most worthy and the best of all her residences. Well, you didn’t misunderstand anything. She has several residences, and believes that there isn’t anything wrong about it. Since she doesn’t spend much time there because of the nature of her work, she decided to make the house accessible to everyone who wants to visit it.

So, if you are interested in a tour around this beautiful house, here are several pieces of information. The price of the ticket is 15 dollars in advance and 20 dollars at the door.

So, if all these facts impressed you, don’t waste your time and visit it.

Remodeling a house before selling it is one of the smartest moves you can make. In the last few years, resale values were extremely low, as well as the construction costs, but this year, they are constantly climbing, making this topic even more attractive to everyone.

This is why, if you are planning to put your house on the market, you should remodel it first. Therefore, that is certainly one of the wisest advices, since the remodeling is supposed to have an immense return on investment.

It includes some quite simple and low-cost renovations and reconstructions that would undoubtedly mean a lot to you when it comes to the estimating the value of your home. Your only task is to make a house attractive to a potential buyer.

Safety Above Everything

There are several things you should certainly do if you want to increase the value of your house. One of the best ways to do it is replacing the front door. This has always been considered as a highly effective tactic, which returns more than 90% of the initial cost.

The potential buyer will always look for a home that would be safe for both him and his family. For instance, a steel entry door will always perfectly serve the purpose, both aesthetically and functionally.

Another way of providing the safety to your home is replacing the garage door, which is again, really cheap and cost-effective.

A Place For Relaxation

If you don’t have a wooden deck area, it would be useful to add it onto your house. This part of the house associates the buyers with many positive things like relaxation, peace or hosting the people they love.

Thus, apart from being undoubtedly practical and offering the sense of simplicity to the house, the wooden deck will help you sell a house in a short period of time.

This relatively cheap improvement returns on above 85% of the cost, which is indeed fascinating.

Give Every Room a Purpose

Finally, you could renovate a certain room in your house. It is very important to keep in mind that every room in the house should have a specific purpose, which would intrigue a potential buyer for sure. The best way to realize this idea is to reorganize your attic or the basement.

You could possibly turn your attic into the office or the bedroom, and the basement into the playroom for children. These changes result in numerous positive effects, including the fact that the house automatically expands and becomes even more comfortable for a family.

Another thing you can change is the floor. In the past, carpeting was very popular, but today it is considered aesthetically plain and extremely difficult to maintain.

Therefore, you could replace it with a simple hardwood, which would certainly contribute a lot to the interior of the house, giving it a sense of a simple beauty.

As you have probably noticed, this venture can have numerous immense outcomes. Also, it might help you to sell your home for even a better price than you thought.

More importantly, you can renovate the house and make the abovementioned changes on a tight budget.
