Do you find it troublesome to organise your child’s room? A child’s room is inevitably the messiest room of the house. Your children would never be bothered about the kind of mess the room is creating. All they would want is to have a good time with their toys regardless of whether they are leaving behind a mess or not. As usual, the task of cleaning up the mess would be left up to you.

How can you ensure that the room is well organised and cleaned up? There are some simple ways you can ensure this. Firstly ensure that there is a toy box which is big enough to contain all the toys. A toy box is an easier option for the kid to dump of toys simply. You could also keep plastic baskets in the room for the sake of picking up the toys. Since children grow up pretty quick, you need to keep discarding off the clothes that the kids have grown out of. This makes space for the next set of clothes.

Cork flooring, a fantastic pick for your basement

February 16, 2011  //  Posted by: cooldude  //  Category: Floors & Roofs

Getting the right flooring for your basement is one of the important tasks while renovating your home. The basement area is very prone to moisture growth accompanied by mildew and molds. Thus, you have to keep in mind that the flooring material is resistant to humidity, moisture and sudden or excessive weather changes.

Opt for cork flooring. Cork contains the waxy suberin (a sort of natural chemical) which helps it to resist moisture, molds, pests or mildew. Other flooring types such as laminate, carpet or wooden flooring are all easily degradable and abet the growth of moisture. Moreover, cork flooring is also highly comfortable to walk on due to its honeycomb cellular build. The trapped gas inside the cork makes it a good insulation material too. It helps you a lot during the chilly winters.
Besides, cork flooring is renewal and eco friendly also as we get it from the outer layer (bark) of the oak tree and thus you do need to cut the whole tree down.

The old Victorian style exudes a blend of charm and elegance accompanied by an aura of romance. Here are some tips to create the Victorian feel in your room décor.

Grandeur and abundance are two of the main maxims of the Victorian style. So, make sure to follow them in every part of your room décor. Use vibrant colors like rich blue, red or leathery brown. Otherwise you can have olive green or light cream. Decorate the walls with wrought iron candle stands and old oil paintings.

Cover the windows elaborately with brocade or velvet curtains underlined by an elegant silk lace. There should be three full flowing layers of curtains. Heavy crystal chandeliers would be a perfect addition to the glam quotient. Also dress up your lampshades in multiple layers of ornamental fabric. Complement the room with sturdy ornate furniture. Place antique vases with fresh flowers, especially rich red roses. Wooden flooring with oriental rugs is ideal to complete the Victorian feel.
