Honestly, you don’t need advanced kitchen appliances to have a fully functioning kitchen. In fact, plenty of people get along just fine with only a microwave to heat up their frozen dinners. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t outfit your kitchen with the best tools and equipment you can find — it just means your kitchen probably doesn’t need all the bells and whistles that kitchen designers, appliance makers and others try to sell you.

Flat Pack Furniture

IKEA doesn’t have the most spotless reputation — though no major corporation does. There are plenty of reasons you might not enjoy shopping at the Swedish budget furniture store, and we’re here to tell you that you don’t have to. If you like the cost of its goods, the user-friendliness of its flat pack items and its minimalist Scandi style, but you don’t like IKEA itself, you have a handful of other options for affordable, flat pack furniture. IKEA isn’t everything. Here’s the best of the rest.

New kitchen appliances are expensive, and as manufacturers add more bits and bobs to them — like fancy doors and smart connectivity — refrigerators, ranges, dishwashers and other appliances are only getting higher in price. If you bought a house that has older appliances, you are probably champing at the bit to replace them with updated models, but if you can’t afford to buy them outright, you should probably wait.

Bedroom Design Tips

According to the National Sleep Foundation, 35 percent of Americans are not getting a good night’s rest. If you’re in that large group, the environment in your bedroom could be a contributing factor to why you aren’t sleeping. Take a look around your bedroom. You may have insomnia inducing problems like an old mattress, the wrong wall color, or too much ambient light. Rectify these issues to give yourself a more peaceful slumber.

Kitchen is the central place of your home where you spend quality time of your day, so why not make it more modern, glamorous and inviting. Adding glass kitchen cabinets renders that wow factor to the cooking space you have always dreamed of. They allow you to display your expensive china, while saving you the hassle of searching every cabinet to find a crucial piece of tableware. They also make the room appear more spacious and artful. Adding glass cabinets does not mean you have to replace the old ones. Redesign your existing shelves into glamorous glass cabinets by inserting glass doors.

Shared Bathroom

If you live with roommates or a partner or spouse, rather than alone, you understand that coordinating space in the shared bathroom can sometimes be tricky. You have to tell people when you shower, or you may have to wait to shower, you need to take turns brushing your teeth, you need separate places for towels and shampoo, and so forth. One thing that can help are vanities with sinks for two. This way you can both use sinks at the same time, for brushing teeth, putting on makeup, grooming, and looking in the mirror.
