50 Craft Room Organization Ideas

Wishing your craft room looked like all the gorgeous ones you see on Pinterest? I was, too, but my crafting supplies seem to have taken over the entire room and may soon encompass my entire house if I do not soon find a solution. Not everyone needs the same craft room organizing solution, since we all have our different DIY specialties. If you sew, then your problem is likely too many spools of thread or fabric scraps or buckets of random sewing notions. If you paint, then you may have piles or paint tubes, brushes, and 50 different shades of reds and blues that need sorting. Or, if you are like me, and you love woodworking, sewing, painting, decoupage, paper crafts and every other type of DIY under the sun, then you need a variety of organizing solutions (to say the least!) Most of these projects are inexpensive, too, and

Long and narrow living room ideas are sometimes in short supply. It’s a layout that’s probably the trickiest of all, because of two big conundrums – how do you fit all of your furniture and accessories in so that it does everything you need, and how do you stop it from feeling claustrophobic and difficult to manoeuvre around? But just know that it is possible! These long and narrow living room ideas should help you rise to the challenge of this configuration so that it rivals more coveted rectangle living room designs.

Long & Narrow Living Room Layout Ideas

10 Top Kitchen Diner Design Tips

1. Give Thought to Size and Layout

One of the benefits of building a new house, or extending and/or remodelling an existing home, is that you have more flexibility to decide on the size and shape of your kitchen diner. Ideas include:

  • Large square or rectangular rooms work best when carefully zoned.
  • An L-shape arrangement is another option (and may be readily achieved by extending to the rear and knocking through to an existing reception room). This layout allows a degree of separation between the kitchen and dining space, and often means you’re not in sight of kitchen mess when sitting at the table.

2. Your Lighting Scheme Plays an Important Role

As multi-functional rooms, kitchen diners are arguably one of the most complex spaces to light in the house. A well-designed lighting scheme features layers of light:

  • ambient (general) lighting
  • task lighting (i.e. under-cabinet lighting, introduced to facilitate activities

How coronavirus could change your office space and remote work from home

If and when you return to your office after the novel coronavirus pandemic, you’ll probably notice some differences.

Upon entering your building, the doors may open automatically so you don’t have to touch the handles. Before you board your elevator, you might tell the elevator where you’d like to go, rather than pressing the many buttons within the elevator. When you reach your floor, you could walk into a room full of dividers and well-spaced desks instead of the crowded open floor plan you’re used to. In common areas like meeting rooms and kitchens, expect to see fewer chairs and posted documentation of the last time they were cleaned.

These are just the changes you can see. Less noticeable in the post-coronavirus office would be more frequent cleaning policies, antimicrobial properties woven into fabrics and materials, amped-up ventilation systems, or even the addition of UV lights for more deeply disinfecting

The Next Ford F-150 Lariat Interior Looks All Digital With A Few Important Buttons Left

Truck YeahThe trucks are good!

I’ve been so busy stumbling over myself in a haze of stokedness over the new Ford Bronco that I forgot that we’re almost due for an F-150 update. Check out this freshly leaked set of pictures, showing what sure looks like the next Ford pickup cab interior. And there’s more to look at than the big swaths of screens.

The pictures, shared today on the forum, seem to show the Lariat trim of a next-gen F-150. We can tell by “Lariat” engraved in a piece of leather and “F-150” on the rubber floormat. For those of you who maybe aren’t big Ford truck followers, Lariat is the low lux spec: Significantly more comfortably appointed than a work truck, not as ornate as a King Ranch or Platinum range-topper.

I only mention this because it’s worth noting there will be both fancier and less-fancy
