Upgrade Your House With Smart Home Systems
It's 2018 for crying out loud! For technophobes not taking advantage of the benefits of smart home systems, it's time to seriously consider these upgrades. From entertainment and lighting convenience to increased home security to balanced climate control, the benefits of smart home technology have impact throughout the entire household.
As an owner of a Dyson Air Purifier Fan, without a doubt, the impact and convenience of this technology is significant!
Escape To A Rooftop Patio Oasis
Stop the presses! We're onto something here! So picture this, it's a warm evening, you finally get the kids to bed, you and your spouse grab a bottle of red and retreat to your rooftop patio to get up close and personal with the moon and embrace one another's company with a scenic view; now we're talking!
Not just for apartment buildings, rooftop patios and decks are becoming an increasingly popular residential amenity.
Interior design trends are becoming a sea of white! Not just seen at your local professional sport team's home playoff games, the "white out" has infiltrated interior design.
In order to brighten rooms, throughout 2018, don't be surprised to see white flooring; like a lot! Think bathroom and kitchen tiling and even white wood flooring and carpeting in living areas.
You may want to give this trend extra consideration though if you have kids or if you frequently hold wine tasting parties!
Open Kitchen Shelving
Give yourself additional storage options in the kitchen by adding open shelving. These shelves are especially great for bulkier items and appliances like mixers, blenders, and mason jars.
This was my approach...
My wife and I discovered a local dealer who created shelving from old, rustic barn boards. We purchased white brackets from Wayfair. I rented a hammer drill from Home Depot to penetrate the tile --- much easier said than done!!!
I installed the anchors and mounted the brackets. Finally, I secured the shelves to the brackets. Shortly after installation, we invested in several dozen mason jars to store nuts, bulky appliances, baking and everyday ingredients.
