How to plan jewelry storage in your bedroom!

This post is provided by Faisal Yaqoob. 

Who does not love good, traditional jewelry pieces? There can never be enough hoops or chains or bracelets in the world for us to own. But some of us definitely have limited storage or display capacities. A party and we can not find our matching earring or the ring your grandmother just loves seems to be out of sight. Every piece has its own value and place and their importance cannot be diminished. The meaning behind each piece can make it difficult to consolidate your collection and create an overwhelming and unorganized stash. Jewelry can also be very fragile so it is crucial that delicate items, such as family heirlooms or dainty necklaces, or mouth grillz are stored properly to avoid damage or tangling.

Do not worry we have all the right ideas for your jewelry organization and yes, we are not suggesting you get rid of them. We recommend on how to keep your special pieces neat, accessible, and safe. Read on for wonderful jewelry storage ideas.

1. Edit your jewelry

Before figuring out exactly how to store your jewelry, it is crucial to decide which items you love and which ones you no longer need. We recommend tossing or re-purposing any mismatched earrings, tarnished jewelry, or broken pieces that may be taking up valuable space. You can also donate trendy pieces to a thrift store and take meaningful pieces to a jeweler, to be reset, if they no longer match your style.

2. Invest in a jewelry box

Jewelry boxes are designed to keep all of your jewels safe, categorized, and easy to find when you are looking to accessorize. They will keep your jewels dust-free, visible, and safe especially pieces like earrings, mouth grills need proper placement to stay in shape. They are also chic enough to be put on display or can be stored neatly in a closet, drawer, or even under your bed.

3. Designate a special place for your regulars

It is easy to get into the habit of tossing your everyday rings, necklaces, and earrings on the nightstand next to your bed. But this habit can lead to necklaces getting tangled or to losing an earring in the middle of the night. Instead putting a catch-all on your nightstand or on your bathroom counter to ensure your jewels are secure until the next morning.

4. Compartmentalize

Another splendid idea is to use storage compartments that can fit Tetris-style into the drawer. Just separate your rings, earrings and necklaces into the different sections. Your husband can occasionally use it as well, for his cufflinks, mouth grillz; watches etc. Simply store your favorite pieces that you use often so that you have easy access to them.

5. The jewelry-as-home decor method

Sometimes we have pieces that should be kept on their own out of necessity. A tabletop or shelf display can easily be used to put jewelry and keep your favorite (most easily tangled) pieces out and ready to grab. Easy on the eyes and convenient for usage.

How To Make Your Room Look Luxurious Using Comforter!

This post is provided by Faisal Yaqoob.

Bedroom is one of the most important rooms in a house where we usually get our rest but what if your bedroom does not take away your stress, anxiety and tiredness? The answer is a simple one. You will become inactive and will face many health problems especially mental ones.

We only live once, and life is full of tensions and time passes quickly that we do not know what is happening. Everyone is busy and just running with the flow so if we are not mentally relaxed then this will affect our life and loved ones.

What should we do to keep us relaxed?

The most important thing is a good sleep and for this purpose you need something comfortable. The interior of your room is not going to do anything for a good sleep but comforters can.

What Points Should One Keep In Mind While Buying A Comforter?

The right time to buy a comforter is usually in late winter or early spring.

Alternative down comforter is generally less expensive, easier to clean and better for allergy sufferers.

Fill Power: the higher the fill power, the warmer the comforter. Bottom line: If you want to be extra warm, choose a comforter with fill power of 600 or higher.

Thread Count: A thread count between 250 and 500 is considered high quality.

Size: In the US, we tend to like our comforters to hang over the bed, more like a bedspread. If you are looking for more drape, an oversized comforter will suit your style better.

Read The Care Label For Washing Instructions

Always find out the best way to wash the comforter before you buy. If the label only mentions spot cleaning, consider choosing a different one; you want to be able to give it a good, deep cleaning when needed. Some comforters are machine washable, but others are dry clean only.

Machine washable comforter should be clean in a front loading washing machine on a gentle cycle. Add an extra rinse to make sure you are removing all of the detergent. At drying, use dryer balls to make it fluff. If the dryer seems stuffed full, take breaks throughout the drying cycle to shake out and fluff the comforter.

At The End

Creative people always make a place beautiful. At Luxurier Bedding, we believe that a luxury bedroom can be made using affordable products. Visit our site and explore the wide range of luxury comforter sets, pillows, curtains and more! We look forward in helping you design something extraordinary.

New Home? Great Gifts!

This article is provided by James Fitzpatrick.

Gifts are important and can make the recipient feel happy that you remembered them. Choosing a gift is complicated, but it is essential to your relationship with someone you care about. It is an excellent way to show how much you appreciate them and make them feel special.

Great Gifts For The New Home Owner

1. Artwork: art is an ideal gift with just about any decor. You can create something personalized for your loved one by selecting artwork from their favorite artist or painting. If they like paintings, you might choose a canvas print that will add depth to their walls. A framed piece of artwork would be perfect for hanging in an entryway or living room.

2. Wine bottles (and wine glasses): if your friend has been eyeing a specific bottle of wine for some time now, this could be the perfect occasion to pull out all the stops. Whether he prefers red or white, sparkling or still, there is no better way to celebrate his latest accomplishment than by pulling out all the best red sweet wines available and serving him up a feast! Wines are always great; they are versatile because they go well with many different foods.

3. Live plants: plants are great because not only do they look beautiful, they are great for keeping rooms fresh and clean. Select a plant that represents healthy, happy relationships, one which symbolizes love, friendship, loyalty, and trust. Try a succulent or cactus as a fun, low-maintenance alternative that adds a pop of color and life to indoor spaces. To ensure your selection thrives, consider choosing ones requiring minimal water and light.

4. Home goods and décor items: home goods come in many different shapes and sizes, so there is sure to be something here that will be a hit. Home goods include everything from plates to candles. You could even go out and get a housewarming party to give away what you have accumulated over the years. The decor is a wonderful gift idea because it allows the receiver to customize their space however they see fit. They can use your gift to decorate their bedroom, kitchen, or living room.

5. Gift cards: gift cards are one of the most versatile ways to give a gift without breaking the bank. Hundreds of brands and retailers offer gift cards to fit almost anyone's tastes, budgets, or hobbies. Whether they prefer shopping at local stores or online, you can find a card for every budget. When the recipient sees what they want, they can use the gift card to buy whatever makes them smile.

6. Personalized gifts: Personalized gifts are always unique, and you know exactly what they will mean to the person who receives them. Personalization does not have to be expensive; there are plenty of affordable options that can turn heads and hearts alike. Personalized keepsakes from custom mugs to photo frames can keep your friends and family members feeling extra special throughout the year.

7. Decorative scented candles: treat your friends to scented candles that smell amazing, whether it is lavender, citrus, chocolate, coffee, or something else. Candlemakers also offer seasonal scents, so check those out if you want to stick to a certain theme. Candles are luxuries that can truly make people feel pampered and relaxed.

8. A dramatic vase or serving bowl: vases and bowls are wonderful additions to the kitchen. Find a big, bold piece for the dining table or a small, simple one for the breakfast nook. They can also hold flowers, fresh herbs, or anything else you would like to see on display. Choose a piece that fits well into your space and lets the design speak for itself.

9. An elegant dinnerware set: Dinner sets are usually high-quality, beautiful pieces guaranteed to impress. From china to glassware, dinner settings can liven up a table. The key is selecting a style that matches your home's overall theme; think about choosing dishes with intricate patterns or designs. You may even choose to pair complementary colors such as black with white.

10. A stylish cookbook: People adore cooking books, especially with pictures and step-by-step instructions. They are perfect for beginners looking to explore different types of cuisine or expert cooks looking for inspiration. Some cookbooks even include meal plans and recipes, which can help families stay organized when feeding a crowd. Make sure to pick a cookbook with dishes you know the recipient will enjoy.

Home is where we spend 90% of our time. Therefore, it should be a place that brings us joy and happiness. If you are looking for some great ideas on how to plan for your next housewarming party, then this article has got you covered.

How To Increase Storage Space In The Home!

This post is provided by Kane Hughes.

Storage space is something that everyone needs more of. It does not matter if you live alone or have a large family, it always seems that there is never quite enough room to store everything in your home. Here are a few tips to increase the storage space in your home and keep everything neat and tidy.

Decide What You Really Need

The first thing to do when looking to increase the storage space in your home is to take stock of what you have and what you actually need to keep. It can be easy to hang on to everything you own “just in case” and never get rid of anything. However, this quickly leads to overflowing cupboards and drawers, leaving no space for the things you need. Go through the things you are storing in your home and decide what you need to keep and what can be gotten rid of. Be as ruthless as you can and remove old items and things you no longer use. You will be surprised just how much unnecessary stuff you are hanging on to, and once those things are gone, just how much extra space you have got for the things you really need.

Use External Spaces

The garage is often a great space for storage that can be overlooked. Make sure you use this area to store things that you might not need daily access to and that can be kept in a cooler environment. Even if you keep your cars in the garage, installing shelves or racking can still mean that the garage becomes a space with plenty of room for storage while still keeping your vehicles safe at night.

If you do not already have one, consider purchasing a shed for your garden. Again, these can be a great space to store garden related items such as tools, garden furniture, and your mower. Large items like these can take up lots of space inside the house, so moving them out into a shed can free up lots of extra storage for you to utilize within your home.

Do Not Forget The Attic

Another great space to store things you do not need regular access to is in the attic. Consider boarding and insulating your loft to add a huge amount of extra storage space to your home. The cost of this will of course depend on the size of your attic but you will be shocked at just how much you are able to store up there once the space is able to be used. An added benefit of having your attic insulated will be lowered heat bills, with the insulation reducing the amount of heat you lose through your roof and keeping your whole house warmer.

Make A Plan

It can be easy to just toss things wherever is convenient when you need to get them out of the way. However, this can quickly lead to storage spaces becoming disorganized and messy, and reducing the number of items you are able to keep in them. With a bit of planning beforehand, you will be able to make the most of the storage space you already have by organizing items more efficiently. Start with larger items and things you do not need regular access to. Once those are in place, you can place smaller things around them to really squeeze every inch out of your storage spaces. A little planning goes a long way when it comes to storage.

Look At Storage Solutions

To go with the above point, consider investing in some storage solutions for your cupboards and other storage spaces. Partitions and dividers can make a huge difference to the number of items you can fit into a given space by sectioning off areas for specific things and creating extra shelves and hangers. Think about whether smaller items can be condensed into boxes that can then be stacked neatly, not only reducing the amount of space lots of smaller items will take up but also keeping everything neat and together. Also, look at whether hooks and hangers can be used to increase the amount of space you have. For example, a shoe rack can be hung on the back of a door, removing shoes from the floor and creating more space to store other things.

Organize Your Paperwork

Too often we end up just dumping letters and other pieces of paperwork on whichever counter or surface is closest to hand, leaving us with a cluttered and disorganized home. Consider setting up an organization area for all of your paperwork to keep it neat and out of the way. Small racks of folders or dividers can be cheaply bought and hung on walls or cupboard doors. These organizational tools may not seem like much, but they will go a long way to tidying up stray pieces of paper and documents that were otherwise taking up space on your counters.

Hopefully, these tips have given you a few ideas for increasing the storage space in your home. With a little time and planning, it is easy to find ways to keep all of your family’s things neat, tidy, and out of the way, no matter how much space you have.

Ways To Design A Small Bathroom!

This post is provided by Diane Hutton.

Just because you have a small bathroom does not mean you can not put effort into designing it anymore. You can still improve its appearance and make your bathing experience comfortable. Here are some tips for decorating your bathroom. 

Use light colors 

Having light colors in the bathroom will make the area look more spacious. It is also easy in the eyes. The bathroom should provide a sense of comfort and relaxation, and the use of light or neutral tones can help achieve that goal. 

Place mirrors

Of course, a bathroom needs to have mirrors. You also need them to create an illusion of space. Even if the room is not big enough, it feels more comfortable. Life-sized mirrors are suitable while you prepare yourself to head out. 

Do not hesitate to buy a tub

Again, a small bathroom should not prevent you from enjoying quality bathroom furniture and accessories. Hence, you may opt for a freestanding bath if you do not have sufficient space. It is an excellent centrepiece that comes in different sizes. You can also put it in any corner of your bathroom. Your bathing experience will be unlike any other when you have one. 

Consider a single sink

You do not need huge sinks or separate ones if you have a small bathroom. A single sink can do the job. As long as it produces hot and cold water, you can use it to clean yourself. 

Buy vanity furniture

You need space to put on makeup before going to work or night creams before going to bed. So it makes sense to have vanity furniture. The good thing is you can buy one that fits the limited space you have. You may also use a bedroom vanity instead to avoid taking up space in your bathroom. 

Use open shelves

Open shelving lets you hang towels and wet clothes. You do not need an entire cabinet for storage. You may also use it to store other bathroom essentials. 

Use a glass shower wall

You do not want obstruction in your bathroom. For example, the wall that separates your shower from the rest of the room may take up space. Using a glass shower is an excellent idea. It frees up more room and creates a seamless connection between the two areas. 

Keep the bathroom tidy

If your bathroom looks messy, you will find it stuffy and crowded. Remove unnecessary things inside. Regularly empty the bin and keep the used clothes in a laundry basket. Once you start cleaning up the bathroom, it will look more spacious. 

Consider remodeling

After doing these tips, you might still find your bathroom small. If you believe remodeling can help, you must do it. Of course, you should prepare to spend a lot. You can make it happen as long as there is sufficient space to extend the bathroom. 

Hopefully, you will start feeling comfortable in your bathroom again. If you do not feel good, it forfeits the purpose of having a bathroom. You will still feel terrible once you step out. Thus, positive changes are necessary even if you need to spend more.
