You may have visions of drifts of color, wildflower prairies, or bushels of tomatoes, but get your feet wet first with some gardening basics. For flower gardens, choose a site close to the door or with a good view from a favorite window. Place your garden where you’ll see and enjoy it often. This will also motivate you to garden more.

The front lawn shown here is small, but the homeowners still found an attractive, sunny spot to add some color and curb appeal. No matter how busy they are, they can enjoy their garden every time they pull into their driveway or look out their front window.

Evaluate and Choose a Site

MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) – A new project from Partridge Creek Farm is addressing the possible food shortage stemming from the coronavirus pandemic.

Partridge Creek Farm is building garden beds at peoples homes and teaching them how to grow their own plants.

It started the Resiliency Garden Project, promoting gardening in communities across Marquette County. Partridge Creek Farm is building garden beds at peoples homes and teaching them how to grow their own plants.

For every garden bed ordered, they are hoping to donate a garden bed to someone in the community. The goal is to build 40 garden beds to help fight food insecurity in our area.

Bathrooms are like a sanctuary for relaxation and solitude. So, you might have a beautiful home but your taste could be questionable if you do not have an equally well-designed bathroom. You want to feel refreshed when you step out of your bathroom and for that you require a revitalising ambiance. We have mentioned below some ways that would help you accessorise your bathroom with a sprinkle of elegance. 

4 Simple Ways To Accessorise Your Bathroom

1. Simplicity is the key

It’s extremely simple to get overpowered with subtleties. Your focus shouldn’t be on elaborate designs and expensive pieces, rather concentrate on the little things that draw your attention when someone first enters your bathroom. 

  • First and foremost, ensure that your bathroom always smells nice. Place some pleasantly scented candles on a shelf, use fragrant essential oils or, use an automatic air freshener. 
  • Consider adding a beautiful rug on your

This might not qualify as the most gasp-worthy renovation post I’ve ever done, but there are still a few goodies left to be seen at the ol’ 9th flip!

You’ve seen how it looked before we got hold of it, and we’ve also shown you the “afters” of the exterior, entryway, dining room, kitchen and the bathrooms – now it’s time to check out the rest of this cute home.

One of the best parts of this house is the giant living room – no out-dated formal living rooms here, this is the perfect family hang-out space!  Well, maybe you can’t see it right now…

We waited over 6 years to start our master bathroom renovation and now, nearly 6 months later, it’s fully completed! And you know what that means – the master bathroom curse that we discovered over the last month definitely seems to be in play (more on that here). All jokes aside (but really, is the curse a real thing, because it seems like it might be?!), let’s put all of this waiting to an end and get to the goods. Including a source list and a full budget breakdown at the end of this post!

Small bathrooms are a great place to do something fun! A bold tile, wall colour or wallpaper will do well in a small bathroom, as it’d likely seem too overwhelming in a larger space. That’s what <a href=”https://www.hgtv.ca/home-tours/photos/modern-meets-playful-home-tour-1913741/” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>designer Sabrina Albanese did in her bathroom in Keswick, ON</a>. However, make sure to pick just one funky pattern or colour (either for the wall or floor) as too much will be, well, too much.

When my husband and I were in the market for a new home about 10 years ago, we had certain requirements that house needed to fulfill — a spacious kitchen, an attached garage, and a comfortable master bathroom. The latter was important, because in our previous house, we’d found ourselves routinely battling it out for space in front of our small master bathroom sink, and actually stepping on each other’s toes as we moved between the vanity and shower.

In our new home, we insisted on a larger master bathroom — but that wasn’t all. We also wanted certain features that would make that space even more usable and shareable, and now, 10 years later, I can say that I’m particularly grateful for the following.

1. Double sinks

Many couples share a single bathroom sink and get by just fine. But I’m the type who needs room to spread out
