Most home basements are designed to let in very little natural light. Be sure to have an
artificial lighting layout plan so your basement is livable. If you're lucky, your basement may
have higher walls that protrude from the ground level. If that is the case, you should be able
to put in windows to bring in natural light.

Building material can be stored between floor joists or rafters in the ceiling. Pieces of molding
that are long, and materials that are larger than that can be placed in this area with minimal
effort. Just put some furring strips on the floor joists so that the materials can be stored.

Use fruit and flowers in order to provide your kitchen with a fresher look and smell. Flowers
or fruit arrangements can add style and brighten any kitchen. This is an inexpensive fix and

it.

Some people may prefer to try wallpaper, rather than painting, for a more dramatic effect.
Wallpapering is easy and inexpensive and can give any room a whole new look. Be careful
when choosing the paper since some are harder to take off than others, just in case you don't
like it later on.

Prior to applying paint over top of glossy finish paint, coat it with quality primer. Taking this
extra step will ensure your new paint doesn't peel and adheres well to your wall. Priming is
also recommended when you are changing out your wall's color from something dark to light
as it reduces the amount of paint or coats you must apply.

Use windows with secondary glazing. These windows cost more than average, but they can
