Importance of a Good Floor

The importance of a good floor cannot be emphasized enough. Whether looking at home flooring or options for your office, it’s important to select floors that offer the most benefits for the space. Let’s go over what to consider when purchasing new flooring:

Cleanliness

How easy is your flooring option to clean? Will it take lots of expensive products, not to mention time out of your day, to make it “like new” again? Think about how much time you want to devote to cleaning floors and go from there–for example, hardwood flooring is simple and easy to clean in addition to looking gorgeous.

Cherry Blossom inspiration

I love this time of the year when the trees are in their full bloom and the streets are cover with pinkish-hued colors.

“The significance of the cherry blossom tree in Japanese culture goes back hundreds of years. In their country, the cherry blossom represents the fragility and the beauty of life. It’s a reminder that life is almost overwhelmingly beautiful but that it is also tragically short. When the cherry blossom trees bloom for a short time each year in brilliant force, they serve as a visual reminder of how precious and how precarious life is. So, when Japanese people come together to view the cherry blossom trees and marvel at their beauty, they aren’t just thinking about the flowers themselves, but also about the larger meaning and deep cultural tradition the cherry blossom tree”.( learn more on the cherry blossom here)

Dorm Room Derby

Whether you’ve just got the letter you’ve been hoping for or you’re heading back for your senior year, making the most out of dorm living takes a little bit of work. While you might have to get creative, the results are worth the effort.

Freshmen, remember, you’re probably going to be sharing a single room with one person, or an apartment suite with as many as three or four other people, so while you can express your individual style, you can’t expect your dorm or apartment mates to share it. So check your school’s rules about what you can and can’t do in your space, and get ready to have some fun with the decoration. For returning students, try to refine your living style to reflect your comparatively more sophisticated, mature tastes.

Within the Rules
Dormitories are communal living spaces, and are governed by the rules of the institution as to what you are and are not allowed to use when furnishing and decorating your personal spaces. A few of the most common rules and some solutions are listed below:

Walls: No painting. No tacks, screws, or nails. No tape. No decals or contact paper. While a little white space never hurt anyone, your college is going to be paranoid about the integrity of its paint job. You may also be restricted from hanging curtains or tapestries unless they are flame retardant. Work around these limitations by using double sided adhesives to hang posters and art, or putting up a cork-board where you can hang your stuff with colorful pins. The sticky stuff comes in tabs and hangers, or small dime-sized dots up to 8″x10″ sheets.

Spray Paint

When I think of decorating with neon accents (particularly DIY projects), I immediately think of all of the super cool neon shades of spray paint at the hardware store. Tape off the end of some chair or table legs and spray away!
