Deana Mcgowan Porch, 2018-11-13 02:50:13. Decks are one of those under appreciated home investments that are sorely under utilized. Most standard builders just build the minimum housing requirements which will allow the homeowner to experience a minimum amount of enjoyment. The standard 6' X 4' back patio isn't large enough to do much of anything. Adding a full deck to the back of the home is like adding a whole new living space.

So instead of noticing the pots, your eyes are drawn to the beautiful flowers she planted: zinnias, wave petunias, marigolds, dahlias and trailing vincas. Would work equally well with container vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers and zucchinis. You could paint your pots any color you like.

You might feel a little silly crawling around on your porch (or the area of your yard that you expect to be covered by one soon) with a tape measure and tape, but in the long run you will be glad you took the time to make measurements. You should also measure any furniture or fixtures you are thinking about purchasing before you actually buy them. After all, there is little that is more discouraging than spending a bunch of money on a piece that ends up not fitting because you didn't think to measure ahead of time.
Kristina Hutchinson Curtain, 2018-09-18 23:18:59. Today's residential window treatments come in a vast variety of options. Some are designed strictly to provide aesthetic appeal, while others served dual purposes in keeping the home comfortable, or blocking noise and light. Contemporary curtain ideas have truly revolutionized the effectiveness of window coverings and what they do to improve or day-to-day comfort. Even better, prices on curtains have not increased because of these improvements. Many drapes and curtains are available at very reasonable, even wholesale prices at sites like smithandnoble.com and drleonards.com.
Linda Richmond Patios, 2018-09-13 23:58:08. Patios are a wonderful place to spend your summer months. Choosing the size, shape, theme, exact location, and material of the patio are all things you will need to figure out. You may want to add lighting to your new patio so that you can use it during the night in the summer. The lighting should blend in well with the patio design and not look like a spotlight. You need to provide subtle lighting that highlights the features of the patio design and makes the patio more beautiful.

This will mean having at least a two foot square flat surface to set up the telescope on. Also, if you are not quite so scientific, putting the grill in an optimal place (where quests won't get ash blown on them) is certainly another form of entertainment. Or, if you are a musician, make sure you have enough outlets to support you and your friends' amps.
Ladonna Collins Curtain, 2018-09-20 04:41:27. Since there are several kinds of cloth and designs out in the market, set aside some time to come up with a decision. Several drapes may look splendid but it's equally vital to check if it will look great in your house. Choose a fabric that complements your home decorations.
Hope Vance Patios, 2018-09-18 08:55:51. Build a series of patio places that will be put to use almost all year around with the use of patio gazebos. A patio gazebo can create drama not to mention shelter from occasional rain showers and also the unhealthy rays of the sun. A slate pathway directing visitors to a patio gazebo with potted plants surrounding it provides a beautiful environment for open-air dining.
Marquita Levy Curtain, 2018-09-18 04:26:33. If you're looking for some exciting and cutting edge curtain ideas then your best bet is to head online. There is nothing like browsing the popular home design websites for some inspiration, particularly if you're not used to making home decor decisions. Apart from sites like Home and Garden Television and Home Portfolio, another place to get curtain design ideas offline is at your local magazine rack. Once there you will find many different home design magazines that contain several useful and informative articles. Just looking at the pages of the magazine is sure to get you inspired.
Phyllis Bryan Backyard, 2018-09-17 14:42:40. My advice is to write down your needs, your wants and your constraints. For instance, you may need a swing for the kids, you may want new garden furniture and your constraint is the size of your garden. Taking this approach will help you prioritize what you must have against what would be nice to have and then help you to consider some of the suggestions below (some more radical than others) for redesigning your backyard. Ideas to get you thinking!

Kris Coffey Patios, 2018-09-13 23:58:23. 2) Create a gathering area. If you have the money, its nice to build a pergola, or even set up a simple outdoor canopy. But if you can't afford that, just gather a bunch of chairs together. Get some chairs that serve as side tables, too, and possibly a little table.
