Cool and Unique Home Renovation DIY Ideas for This Spring

Spring is the ideal time to make changes to your home. The warmer weather brings with it a boost in motivation, and it’s easier to get moving. Each year, people come up with new ideas about how to improve a home and make it unique. If you’re looking for a home improvement or renovation project to take on this spring to give your home a fresh look, you’ve come to the right place. Here are some of the coolest DIY home renovation projects to try. Add Layers Houses typically have distinct floors, that offer a flat layout. By adding layers to the floor, you provide more texture and character in a room. Changing the layout in this way doesn’t have to be a significant challenge or a huge undertaking. It can be accomplished with building well-structured platforms from wood. The layers can be incorporated wherever you see fit. Some opt to build a conversation pit in their rec room as a throwback to the sunken living rooms of days gone by. Others create stadium seating for their sofas. Turn an alcove in the wall into a raised reading nook with some mood lighting and a custom art piece by Instapainting .....

4 Ways to Update Your Home When Redecorating Your Home

Redecorating a home is all about creating a fresh look. It’s also a great time to consider making updates and upgrades, from furniture to decor to appliances. The first step is to make a plan. Unless you have an unlimited budget, you’ll want to decide how much you can afford to spend in each room. Tackle one room at a time, so you don’t get overwhelmed, and remember to have fun creating your perfect spaces. Tasteful Kitchens Image via Flickr by emily @ go haus go Redecorating a kitchen can be as simple or as complex as you make it, with the average remodel costing $21,751. The biggest expenses tend to be buying new cabinetry and changing the layout (moving plumbing isn’t easy). If a full makeover isn’t in your budget, even small changes can make a big difference. Consider painting old cabinets rather than replacing them, or simply changing the hardware. Upgrading countertops or adding a clean, modern backsplash can help create a whole new look for less. Appliance Upgrades Consider functionality when divvying up your redecorating budget. That new smart fridge that texts you when you’re out of milk is great if you can afford it. However, if .....

4 Tips for Decorating and Setting Up Your First Home

So, you’re moving into your first home. Congrats! Now it’s time to take those empty rooms and transform them into your very own space. Whether you have a big, bursting folder full of design ideas and a budget to match, or you’re just starting out and need frugal decor, here are tips for decorating your first home. Make a Plan To avoid getting overwhelmed, pick one room to decorate at a time. Start with the room you’ll spend the most time in; then decide on a decorating style. It’s OK to use different styles in different rooms. Go modern (well-tailored with clean lines) in the living room. Use sleek metal and glass in a contemporary bedroom. Choose cozy and quirky decor for a farmhouse-style kitchen. Budget tip: Start with functional pieces you’ll use every day, such as a sofa, a bed, and a table. The best designs are built by adding pieces as you go.

If you’re over the age of 50 and find yourself suddenly single, it can be hard to know how to get yourself back out there.

3 Ways to Avoid Shoe Pain

Shoes can be painful to wear, but they don’t have to be. Before you endure hours of aching torture and blistered feet, give some of these tips a try. Who knows? Your tootsies might thank you for it. Discover these three strategies for avoiding the pain that can come from shoes. Choose the Right Fit Image via Flickr by Nina A. J. G. Nothing feels worse than a day spent in ill-fitting shoes. From length to width, there are a couple of factors to consider when determining your correct fit. Look for about a thumb’s width of wiggle room between your big toe and the end of the shoe. At the mid-foot area, the shoe should feel secure, yet comfortable, and there should be no slipping at the heel. Shoes that are too large for your feet hurt just as much as shoes that are too small. They don’t provide the support you need and lead to chafing. Small shoes will cramp your toes, and leave you feeling achy by nightfall. While it is possible to stretch shoes a little, some materials have more give than others, so don’t count on it. Select the Right Shoes Different shoes are designed .....
