The family room is where you unwind, play, chat, enjoy the fire and have dinner in front of a movie on the weekends. It’s also the room that often becomes a messy afterthought compared with other rooms. If you’re feeling blah about what it looks like, don’t fret. Here are some easy and free or cheap fixes borrowed from beautiful Houzz rooms that will let you relax in style.
the selections are made, the contract is signed, and you’re ready to start your construction project.
Not so fast! Before work begins, make sure you and your contractor are on the same page about how things will go. This often takes the form of a pre-construction meeting, which may be most useful when held at your home and at least one week ahead of construction — particularly if you have furniture or other belongings to move.
Here are a few of the most important things to cover at this meeting:
The obvious objective of taking a shower is to cleanse your body. But, if you’re like me, you know the shower is also a time to enjoy 10-15 minutes of relaxation and thought. There seemingly is nothing that can interrupt this small brake in time. That’s why, having a shower head that you love is really important. I’ve found a few that are on my wishlist, check them out below. What would be your ideal shower head?

How often do you find yourself hanging out with somebody who won’t think twice about keeping their air conditioning blasting hot or cool air? It’s as if being temporarily uncomfortable would be the worst thing that could happen that very instant. Deciding to adjust the thermostat every 15 minutes is justifiable if a person is being considerate for their sick pet, or if their arts & crafts media are melting. If it’s purely for convenience, and done so as to not upset their complacent keel, then that’s not cool, man. Well, maybe except for the days of extreme heat in the summer. It can be a grueling feat to endure come bedtime, in more densely populated locales.
Toilet water accounts for more than 26 percent of the total household water use in the U.S. – more than showers, faucets or even clothes washers — according to the EPA.
