If you are extremely proud of your home, it is likely that you spend a lot of time making sure that it looks its best. You may have a stylish kitchen, a stunning living space, and a luxurious bedroom; but what about the other areas of your home? Is every part of your property up to scratch, or is there still room for improvement? If you are unsure, you will need to read on. Below are four typically neglected areas of your home and how to include them in your interior design scheme.
Although it is important for your garage to be a practical space, there is no reason for it to be lacking in style and sophistication. Make sure that your garage is an extension of your interior design scheme. Don’t leave the walls bare. Instead, paint them with light reflecting colors that will open the space. You should also invest in a high-quality flooring that is functional and hardwearing but not at the cost of its aesthetics. At granitegaragefloors.com, you can find garage floors to be proud of.
If you are struggling for storage, you should explore the potential of your attic space. If your property a large area of attic space, why not consider converting it into a usable room? This will not only provide you with an always welcome extra room, but it can also dramatically increase the value of your property. Alternatively, if you have less space to build upwards, you should concentrate on creating an impressive storage space. One way to do this is by installing insulation and wooden floors. This could help to keep your property warm and reduce the cost of your heating. It would also make it much easier for you to store, and access, your items.
Your utility area
In order to run a clean and efficient household, you will need to invest in your utility area. Ideally, you should have your washing machine and drier located in their own room. Why not put up a dividing wall that separates your kitchen from your utility area? This is a great way to manage your mess. Even if you can’t create a separate area, you should still try to be as organized as possible. Look for organizing solutions that will keep your household items clean and tidy.
The exterior of your home
They say you should never judge a book by its cover. However, it is very likely that your guests will be judging your property from the outside. If you want to increase the value of your home, you will need to invest in its curb appeal. Adding lots of greenery to your outside area is a great place to start. You could also repaint the front door or purchase a personalized sign that will welcome people to your home. If you live closely to other people, you need to make sure that your home complements the surrounding properties. Whilst it is important to be unique, uniformity is an incredibly attractive trait.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
