1. Shelves: From Built-Ins to Floating

“Shelves are a great way to store items and also display items you have collected over the years. Enjoy our collection of shelving types and inspiration.”

2. How to Arrange Furniture

“Get out the tape measure

The first step in arranging a space is determining its size. Use a tape measure to get the dimensions of a room. Or, a quick tip: Measure your foot and then walk heel to toe across the room. This is an easy way to estimate the basic size. Then, check the dimensions of the hallways, stairs and door widths leading to the space. This is the eternal challenge for a homeowner, being sure the entrance and egress of the room are large enough for potential purchases.”

3. The Freestanding Tub: “A Newfound Stature”

“We all need that room in our house that serves as our guilty pleasure sanctuary; and for many that’s turning their bathroom into a spa-like retreat. Because the “bathroom” is a wet area, there are a lot more hard surfaces and so it can sometimes be difficult to achieve a relaxing, comfortable feeling you have in other spaces of your home. Nonetheless, new bathroom technologies, from steam showers to radiant-heat floors, leading fixture designs and new materials have emerged in recent years – combined they can be used to calm the mind and soothe and relax the body – creating that spa-like retreat you desperately need.”

4. Ceilings to Look Up To

“A ceiling plan can be just as important as a floor plan. Though this statement may apply more in a commercial setting, the ceiling plan should still not be neglected in a residential setting. A well thought out ceiling plan can make all the difference in the aesthetic of your home.”

5. Shot-Gun Houses

“It is often stated that the “shot-gun” house got it’s name because you can stand in the front doorway, fire a shot gun, and the bullet would exit right out of the back door.”
