Comfortable Home Ideas
If you want your home to be more comfortable and functional, here are six suggestions to create the home you really want.
Whether you have a big home, a small house or live in an apartment, your entrance area is the FIRST thing you, or ANYONE, sees when they walk into your home.

A warm and cozy small foyer makes a BIG difference!
Laundry Room Ideas
So, how’s your laundry room? Is it a room just to do laundry and otherwise, shut the door so no one else sees it?
It’s odd to me that so many homeowners overlook their laundry room – we sure spend a ton of time in it, don’t we?
Not only should your laundry room be functional, you should also LOVE your laundry room… seriously!
Creating a beautiful area goes a long way to making your home more comfortable, functional and beautiful all-around.
Take a look at these cute laundry room ideas for some inspiration to plan your laundry room makeover.
I don’t think I’ve ever thought of bathroom decor as “comfortable”, but we all know a bathroom sure has to be more functional.
There is nothing worse that a bathroom that is full of clutter!
The first step to making your bathroom more functional is to work out some storage solutions so everything has its place and you maximize your space you have available.
But what about towels?
If you home without a linen closet, where to PUT towels can be a challenge!
I remember my first apartment at college didn’t even have a closet for linens – can you believe it?!?!
Needless to say, I learned some really creative linen storage ideas over the years living in a no linen closet situation!
