Parts of Your House That Might Need an Update

You might love your home, but can you say you truly love every single part of it? Unless you’re rich enough to have a beautiful and pristine home, there are probably a couple of places in your house that you’d wish didn’t exist. Sadly, they’re a part of your home and you paid good money to get as much space as you did, so why not make the most of it? Some parts of your home may be nasty, underused or even infested with mold or rodents. Call in pest control experts, get some cleaning gear, break out the DIY tools, and let’s renovate those boring parts of your home.

The Guest Bedroom

Sure, your guests may not spend much time in the guest bedroom (or do they?) but that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be absolutely spotless and full of modern additions. The bed needs to be comfortable enough that you’d want to sleep in it, there should be plenty of storage space so they don’t have to bring stuff out from their suitcases, and you should try to make them feel at home. If the guest room has an en-suite bathroom as well, ensure that it’s properly stocked with towels and products. A great little welcome tip is to add a welcome tray or trolley full of hotel-like extras. A small kettle, some tea and coffee, books, fresh towels and perhaps a scented plant.

That Damp Basement

Is your basement a place that you rarely visit? Don’t worry, it happens to everyone. Basements can be damp, smelly and occasionally infested with rodents. Have an inspection of your basement and determine what needs to be done to clean it up. Perhaps you need to clean out some mildew growth, maybe you need to block drafts or holes where pests are crawling in, and maybe it just needs a general clean up. Once that’s done, you can start thinking of refurbishment plans. There are companies like http://www.flemingconstructionllc.com that specialise in planning and executing basement renovations and considering it’s such a complicated and time-consuming job, a contractor should be your first choice. What you use the extra space for is completely up to you. It could be a personal gym, extra bedroom, a hobby play area, or even a home cinema setup.

Your Storage Rooms

Storage rooms are often quite messy, but that doesn’t mean you can just forget them. Remember that your storage rooms will accumulate a lot of dust and they might be breeding grounds for pests or insects. Clean them out now and then and, if possible, renovate them so they serve their purpose better. If one of your storage rooms has too many shelves, then take them down if they aren’t used. If a storage room has too few shelves, consider adding more to increase the potential storage space.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
