Sometimes a house or apartment just seems constricting. You might be surprised to find out that this feeling comes from your living space lacking in flow. Here are a few basic tips, from no doors to dog doors, which will help with this problem.
Make sure that you can draw an unobstructed line between the doors in a room. You want a straight line of movement between rooms and if you have a couch blocking the line between the kitchen and the bedroom you may find yourself cooking less. I know that seems a bit silly but try it and you’ll see. The little bit of extra effort that you don’t even notice will have a sub conscious effect.
In the same way, you should open up your windows and take down your blinds and replace them with flowing drapes. They can be more easily opened and they look nice. On top of that, they add to the idea of natural flow. You want to have nothing rigid and solid between you and the outside world. Otherwise, your mind is like a dog without dog doors. You are waiting for something else to let you outside but there is something holding you back.
Take down the doors in your home. You need to have your doors to the outside for security purposes but, if you can, have those open. If you have small children and animals that you don’t want getting out then get a screen door. I you have children that you need to keep in but want pets to have free egress then get dog doors. If you want privacy for certain rooms then I suggest getting long curtains.
Use bright colors in your home and have lots of lights. Use mirrors to reflect light wherever you can. If you have mirrors in every room you will be surprised with how open the rooms feel. If you haven’t picked up on it yet, this is all about light. You need to make sure the light is unobstructed and bright.
Even the smallest lawn needs to receive regular care and maintenance. If you want to keep your lawn tidy, here are some lawn care tips for you to follow. First, if you have just moved into a new home, observe your lawn and see if there is any debris left behind. Clear out all debris, plough the soil and level out the ground. If the lawn is too rocky you might need to use a wheelbarrow. Only when these things are done that you can start growing grass on the lawn.
Make sure that you water the grass every day so that it grows thick and healthy. However, avoid from over watering because an area which is too moist can lead to the appearance of fungus. Don’t drag the hoses along the grass area because you don’t want to affect the growth of the grass.
One of the lawn care tips that you should consider applying is ensuring the grass is fertilized adequately. The best number of times to fertilize the lawn is 4 times in a year. The contents of fertilizers may differ based on the concentration of phosphate and nitrogen in them. To get the best results, you should seek advice from a lawn care professional.
Remember that your lawn needs to be taken care of regularly. Since you already know some of the tips, why not apply them to your lawn and start creating a beautiful one right now.
