3 Ways To Transform Your Living Space

You don't have to feel stuck in an old worn-down home. Changing things up can be simple. Here are three ways to transform your living space. 

1. Install New Flooring
A lot of dirt and hair can build up in the carpet. High traffic areas, often have visible wear and tear. Whether you want to upgrade to pet proof carpet Compton CA or replace old dented hardwood flooring, doing so makes your living space feel fresh and new.

2. Add a Fresh Coat of Paint
Over time, paint can fade, peel off or get scuffed. Applying a new coat of paint of the same color helps your space feel clean and new. Changing the color of a room is more work, but has a huge impact on the look and feel of a room. You can change the color to keep up with trends or to set a different mood. 

3. Rearrange Furniture and Decor
The placement of your furniture can make your space feel claustrophobic and small or large and spacious. You will want to make sure the placement of your furniture creates an aesthetically pleasing view but is also functional. 
Things to consider when arranging your furniture are:
Focal points - Some rooms have natural focal points such as a window or fireplace. If your room doesn't, you can create one using furniture or wall decor.
High traffic areas - It is OK to have to walk around a coffee table in the middle of a room but be sure not to place anything in high traffic areas.
Conversation areas - You don't want family or guests having to sit at uncomfortable angles in order to talk to each other. You also don't want them to have to yell across a large room.

With so many options available, transforming your living space can be simple and make a huge difference in the look and feel of your house.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts?

It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
