Home & Garden

So your bathroom lacks natural light and view? Don't worry, you're not alone. Even though lighting and fresh air are incredibly important for bathrooms, this aspect is often-times overlooked. However, designers have many tricks and tips that will easily trick the eye to perceive small, enclosed bathrooms as somewhat more spacious and light spaces where one may relax and feel comfortable.

Lighting Is Of Utmost Importance

In boxed-in bathrooms artificial lighting saves the day! But when you buy bathroom lighting for a space that has no contact with the outside world, besides going really bright, make sure the main light also features a fan that can help manage condensation. Making sure that air can circulate is really important and fans are a good way to achieve it. Also, when you have no access to natural light, the key is to make sure you put artificial lights in all the right places. So, before you actually buy bathroom lighting, you need to create a thorough lightening plan. Make sure you put lights as to be able to properly illuminate the face when standing in front of the mirror, use lots of reflective surfaces to carry the light around and put lights in unconventional light locations such as inside the shower, around the mirror and under the vanity.
Communication has always been upgraded in one way or another throughout the history of humankind, but it's not an exaggeration to say it's reached its peak in this century that we have the luck to be part of.

When was the last time you thought of upgrading your lighting when your home was undergoing interior changes? Oftentimes we think of doing home makeovers, but somehow they all revolve around the same old same old, choosing a specific room, be it the living room,...

Owning a backyard pool is all fun and games until there is some maintenance chore that needs to be done. When daydreaming of having one, we often forget that pools can turn their perfectly blue water into a green and nasty environment, perfect for all...

Ah, summer time and the fresh air with lovely smell of plants, things worth living for. I haven't always been the fan of plants though... Don't get me wrong, I've always admired their beauty and appreciated their existence, however I haven't been the fan of taking care of them myself. That is, until I moved to a new home with plenty of space for a garden. I don't mean to scare new gardeners, but my experience at its beginning wasn't all that glorious I thought it would be as I managed to kill off more plants than I actually nurtured. As they say, Rome wasn't built in a day, and so did my green thumb skills, so I wasn't willing to give up.
