Decorating With Clocks

In the 21st century, we are living in a digitized world. The time is literally at our finger tips and we can whip out our cell phones or just glance down at our watches to find out what the time is. You can even substitute your cellphone for a regular alarm clock these days.

While clocks may seem to be losing their functionality, they can be used as great accent pieces in your home. Also, a great feature about clocks is that the majority of them are battery powered, so in times of power outages, you will always know what time it is when your electronics shut off.

Clocks come in all shapes, sizes and designs that could compliment any room’s decor. There’s are so many places where you can add a clock to accent the current decor in the room or it can act as a stand alone feature.

This Modway’s Furniture Starburst Wall Clock in Black Silver  would look great mounted on top of a fireplace or as a statement on an a feature wall.

Study Room Ideas

Studying is something no student ever wants to do. With all the distractions available, it might may seem impossible to motivate the student to get the work done. While studying is always going to be a drag, the environment that they are set up in might motivate the student to do better.

When setting up a study area, it should be in an area that is far away from any distractions (ie: where the television is or where there is a lot of noise).

To help designate a study area, it should be clearly marked as one. One way to distinguish an area as a study area is to have a desk. You could always try to have a built in desk/wall made into a study area, but you could always also purchase a separate desk.  (Like Modway’s Tinker Desk in Natural) Having a desk allows you to keep all your supplies and papers in once place. To keep areas less cluttered, try to have some storage boxes or even have a bookshelf installed.

Comfort is important while studying. You will be sitting on for hours, so might as well get a chair that is comfortable. A bonus would be one that has wheels so that you can move around your study area to reach things out of your reach so do not over exert yourself. There are so many different styles of chairs to choose from, like Modway’s Lippa Novelty Chair in Red or Uttermost’s Yalena’s Desk Chair

The study area shouldn’t be completely bare and boring. Try to add warmth or something to look at so the the area is not completely uninspiring, but at the same time not distracting. Add a decorative rug or even some paintings or pictures on the wall. Like Concord Global’s Flowers Beige Rectangle Woven Rug or Uttermost’s Mini Floral Glow

Concord Global 57415 Flowers Beige 5′ X 7′ Rectangle Woven Rug Milano Collection
Mini Floral Glow I Ii Iii Iv Set Of 4 Wall Art
Uttermost 34216 Mini Floral Glow I Ii Iii Iv Set Of 4 Wall Art

And of course the most important aspect to keep in mind when setting up a study area is the lighting. While studying, you should have task lighting to help focus on what specifically is trying to be done. No one wants or can get work in the dark. So illuminate the area to be productive.

Great task lighting you can add to a study area is to go with a table lamp that can sit easily on top of a desk or you could always add pendant lights or wall sconces with a swing arm if you lack the space.  Try ET2’s Satin Aluminum Eco-Task 1-Light 37 Inch LED Swing Arm Table Lamp or Elk Lighting’s Single Light Swing Arm Wall Sconce

Dining Room Tables – Pick the Right Size

Dining rooms are an integral part of any home. There are so many different functions or purposes for a dining room: entertaining, eating or for just the design factor. While the chandelier that lights up the whole room may take focus,  it is the dining room table that will serve the most function.

You want a dining room table that will fit your needs. The more people you expect to entertain the more table space you should have. Rectangular tables are great if you expect a lot of guests. On the other hand, if you don’t plan on entertaining as much, or have fewer guests frequenting your home, round tables might be better for you.

Zuo Modern 102192 Xert Dining Table Gray

The space and comfort of your diners is important. You want to give them their own personal zone where they aren’t sitting on top of each other. Try to buy a table that fits the number of people you want that allows them each to have their own space of 2′-3′. Also, in relation to space, you don’t want the table taking up the whole room. Leave your guests enough room to move around, so leave a couple of feet between the table and the walls so no one feels cramped or cornered.

Zuo Modern 98160 Fillmore Table Distressed Natural

Dining room tables are an investment that should last you a long time. If you feel that over time your needs will grow or if you know that occasionally you will entertain more, but the majority of the time you will entertain small groups, you should find a table that have extensions. When you have many people coming over, you want to maintain a uniform look, instead of having extra tables scattered all over the place.

Zuo Modern 102172 Wilco Dining Table Black

Rectangular and round tables have different size guidelines per seat when you’re trying to figure out the size:

  • For rectangular tables, the length of the table should be proportionate for every seat needed. For every one seat you require, add 12″ and the resulting sum is how long your rectangular table should be. (Example: need 8 seats, the length of your table should be 96″ 8 x 12)
  • For round tables, they follow a different scale. Since round tables are mostly used for smaller groups, they are not offered in as large sizes as rectangular ones. The more guests you want to place in a round table, they get a decreasing amount of space. Respectively, if you have a table that seats 4, each diner should add 12″ to the diameter (you need a table with a diameter of 48″= 4 x 12), if you have a table that seats 6, each diner should add 10″ (you need a table with a diameter of 60″ = 6 x 10), if you have a table that sits 8, each diner should add 9″ (you need a table with a diameter of 72″ = 8 x 9)

Rangehood Maintenance

Rangehoods and fans remove grease and moisture from cooking, so naturally they collect dirt over time and require cleaning to stay efficient.
Easy maintenance you can do to upkeep your rangehood is to clean the exterior of it weekly with a damp cloth that won’t leave scratches on the surface.

The fans are one of the most important parts of a rangehood, but they can get really dirty from the excess dirt and grease. Make sure you upkeep the fans as often as you can with soap and water. Not maintaining it will not only decrease the efficiency of the rangehood, but poses a serious safety hazard.


Vents of rangehoods should also be cleaned out constantly. They become clogged with all the dirt and residue. You should always make sure this area stays clear.

Filters help trap unwanted airborne materials. They need to be changed out or washed occasionally to ensure that there won’t be a huge buildup. You should always consult with the owners manual on how to maintain your filter, because some filters have special instructions

Creating a Feature Wall

Feature or focal walls are a great and simple way to add interest and depth into any room.

The wall that you choose be the main focus of the room. Some places might be above the fire place, above a sofa, by a desk, or above a bed.

You shouldn’t put your feature wall next to a door or window because it will minimize the design effect of the purpose of the wall. Also, you should try to pick the largest wall instead of the smallest so that you have a larger canvas to work with.

While most people assume that a feature wall is just a wall painted one different color from the rest, there are other ways to create one:

  • Wallpaper – offers a lot of different designs and textures
  • Add decorative features, like mirrors, paintings, pictures, or any other three dimensional objects.
  • Make the wall a mural and paint something yourself
  • Use chalkboard paint and you can have a nice canvas for the kids or for a huge note pad that you can write reminder for yourself with.
