Mother’s day does not always have to be about material gifts like flowers or jewelry. Sometimes the best gift you can give is the gift of time and an extra set of hands to help with household tasks. Some of these things are especially suited for a younger person, while other are just nice ways to show your mom that you care. Either way, they are small things that will make your mom feel special on her big day. Tech Support If your mom is older, maybe she’s just coming around to using an iPad or getting onto Facebook for the first time. These tools seems like second nature to most of us, but can be intimidating to those who are new to them. For Mother’s Day, help your mom set up her new technology or maybe fix something that’s been broken. Taking on a job like this requires a Continue reading

While it might seem excessive to recreate something you already have inside the house, there are ways to achieve the outdoor kitchen you want without breaking the bank. Fake it ‘til you make it If you already have granite or other types of stone in your indoor kitchen, you know how expensive they can be.

A fresh coat of paint is one of the quickest, easiest and most cost-effective ways of sprucing up a space! The biggest challenge, even for experienced designers, is picking the right paint colors. It seems easy enough: you go to the paint store, pick a color from that little bitty chip, take it home and slap it on the walls. In reality, after hours of prep and painting, you may find the color that looked so great on paper looks horrible on the wall. So, short of hiring a paint guru at $150 an hour (really,) here are ten tips for choosing the right paint color:
We form strong feelings about colors. These associations impact how we feel in a room, and thus how we behave. The color of your kitchen can dramatically impact the kind of activities it sees. Have you ever noticed most fast food chains incorporate red and yellow into their design? Red, yellow and orange are associated with happiness, which in turn helps stimulate appetite.

First, envision what the rest of your space will look like. Once you have an idea, you can begin researching and dreaming, but stay flexible – the perfect complement to Continue reading

The cabinets provide the kitchen with a large measure of visual impact, and the look of the cabinets helps determine the overall aesthetic of the space. There are several types of cabinets that each achieve similar looks. So how to choose? Face Frame or Frameless There are two major types of cabinetry. The first is the face frame, in which the face of the cabinet box is constructed with a 1.5” frame on the front of the cabinet box, to which the cabinet doors are mounted. The spacing between the doors is called the “overlay” and a narrow, or “full” overlay achieves a more contemporary look. The second construction method is frameless, sometimes called European by the old-timers, harkening back to an age when American beer was yellow and everything imported had instant Continue reading
