Next House Project.

My daughter had their dance practice at home for their school presentation, and I was able to watch them while practicing.  I am deeply entertained with the use of blacklight and it's effect on the overall concept of the dance.  I wonder if it's the american dj blacklight.  I've also noticed that they have a good selection of music and that it perfectly matches their dance execution.  I'm glad that we had an extra space in the house for them to do their practice as I was able to watch the dance first hand.

Hopefully we will be able to have our garage covered next year so we could do more activities in the house either for dance rehearsals or a simple get together.  That might be our upcoming project in the house then.  I wish we could have everything fixed the soonest so we could move on with our next project.

How Should I Maintain My Curtains?

We all know that dressing up our homes with cute curtains makes a big difference!  Having curtains at home not only beautify the walls but also protects our indoors from accumulating too much dusts and provides the necessary shade, as it blocks the sunlight from coming directly into the house.  We may like the idea of having natural lights inside the house but sometimes, this could be distracting especially when we are sleeping, reading books or working on our computers. But how should we maintain our curtains?

Blinds could be perfect for our homes but personally, I do prefer to have washable curtains that I could change regularly. Our curtains collect dusts over time, thus it is very important to change it on a regular basis.

In between changing, we could do some quick clean up with the aid of a vacuum cleaner.  I love to use the hand held vacuum cleaner with a string that could be hung over my neck as this could make me moved freely while collecting the dusts from the curtains.  Doing this could prolong the time before you change your curtain with another one.  This could also help the family members to avoid catching the dusts that could be a health hazard especially if someone in the house is suffering from asthma.

  


It was also my practice to spray a fabric conditioner infused with water to the curtains to freshen them up.  This would somehow disinfect the curtains especially if you use the one with "anti bac" formula.  Bedsides, this could make your home smelling fresh and clean.  I really love the smell of downy especially when the air blows the smell around your house.  It feels cool and refreshing.

Choosing the right kind of curtain fabric according to the season also helps us to feel comfortable inside our homes.  Of course, during summer, we have to choose the ones which are light colored and made of light material and use thicker ones during wet season.

Knowing hoe to properly maintain our curtains will do the wonder.  It could make our house dust free and away from pollutants that could affect our health and of course, nothing could beat a fresh and beautiful home.  This could make you want to stay at home more. :)

Kitchen Organizers

I bought several items from Lazada and so far, none of these items put me down.  I think not all items are great in terms of quality but you just have to be very careful when choosing the product you would like to buy.   I guess, it's also important to read reviews done by previous buyers so you would have an idea of how the said product performs.  Reading the product description and specification is also important before you buy any product.

After buying hose for my garden, a wall fan for my dining room and one unit of Microwave oven, I guess, my next target would be a pot and pan organizer.

I saw this model from their site ad I think it's awesome!


I am surprised that this simple design can hold few pieces of pots and pans.  This will be very useful if you like to organize your pots and pans under you kitchen sink cabinet or just on the top of your kitchen counter. What you need is easily accessible and arranged nicely so there will be no eye sore in your kitchen.  Hmm....I think I have to consider getting this. :)

Benefits of Having Plants Inside Your House



Since I love gardening, it goes to show that I also love to arrange plants in cute tiny pots that I could place inside the house.  Normally, I would place some on the living room center table as this is the first thing that visitors would see the moment they enter our home.  I love to change my potted plants inside the house every now and then since I had plenty of plants in my garden and also because it gives me a certain kind of pleasure every time I see those inside my home, not to mention that it helps to purify the air and believes to give the home dwellers physical and mental health.    

Adding interior spaces with green plants does not only beautify your homes, it also interacts with our body, mind and spirit in a way that it improves our quality of life in general.

A Music Room

Only few of his friends knew that my son's greatest frustration is to be able to sing well and play a guitar.  I guess it was his dream to become good at music but it seems that this dream never came into a reality since even after he graduated from college, my son never learned to play even a single musical instrument (lol). Whenever we're at home or elsewhere, he would always act and pretend like he's good at it and me and my daughter would always volunteer to have his photos taken as a souvenir.

When we were in Thailand, we are hoping to watch a local band play as we are quite intrigued on their kind of music, unfortunately, we were not able to do that due to time constraint.

Speaking of bands and music, I've found out during our trip that there are lots of Filipino bands playing in Thailand particularly in Bangkok, Pattaya, Chiang Mai and Phuket.  Filipinos are well known to be good singers and musicians so I understand my son's sentiments and desire to be one.     


I think, the first step to appreciate a good music is to ensure the quality of the sound system that you're using. I've attended several parties before and it is such an annoying experience to have an irritating sound system in the background.  Choosing the best sound system equipped with the best amplifiers such as Genz-Benz Amplifiers is a must if you really want to have a good party experience.  

 


How I wish we could have a music room in the house, perhaps that would be a great start for my kids to be trained in music well whether be it playing musical instruments or just develop their voice for singing.

I once tried to scout for music room designs online but my plan didn't actually push through as my son and daughter suddenly shifted their interest to another field of entertainment but given the opportunity, I would certainly love to have one in the house someday.

A Simple and Economical Outdoor Shower


If you have an extra space in your yard and you want to create an extra shower room for your visitors or a bathroom where you could have a quick shower if the other bathroom in the house is occupied, then this is a cool idea.  This could just be an extension from the space outside your kitchen or dining room or perhaps from your backyard.  Materials used are basic,simple and economical.  I think it's very easy to do to.  If the man in your house has a basic plumbing skills, perhaps this could pass as a weekend DIY project, too.
  
What do you think?

Under Sink Storage



If you are a home maker who loves to clean and organize, chances are you would probably find a smart way to store your cleaning supplies and materials in a concealed place where nobody could see. Well, that;s just normal and the challenge lies with smart storage solutions.  I had several sinks in both our main kitchen and dirty kitchen as well as in the laundry area but I never really make full use of those.  Probably, it doesn't have sufficient shelves or dividers for me to put everything in place.

Well, this under the sink storage idea is pretty cool and a smart way to create more storage spaces on under the sink cabinets.  Mine is lacking of dividers and shelves thus I can't possibly put in all those little stuff.  I can't wait to try this at home!
