We’ve been busy with this home renovation for quite some time, and the journey has been quite exciting! After working on many projects throughout the home, we are not focusing on which locks to buy for our new entry doors. If you will recall, a few articles ago, we had an extensive discussion about correct […]
Dishwashers are a huge timesaver. Instead of having to spend what can feel like hours washing dishes by hand, you can simply plop them in the dishwasher and have them washed quickly. This means you don’t have to wash them yourself and can instead do other things. But when the drain hose is hanging down
One of the most used features of every home is the shower. It generally gets used at least once a day, depending on the size of your household of course. Since showers are used so much, it’s no surprise that they start to look old and worn, or even break. One way to spruce up
No matter what we do, we all try to be an independent person with our own decisions. However, like me, I’m sure you’re guilty of falling for advertising campaigns. Also, like me, you probably find yourself leaning towards certain brands because you hear good things about them or you’ve had good experiences in the past.
Making your house into a home is not always as easy as it seems. At Two Make A Home, we know all too well that no matter how you clean, decorate, and maintain your home, there always seems to be one small element that goes unnoticed that causes problems. One minor issue that can cause
Finding out that there is a stain on your clothing sucks. Whether you are getting dressed in the morning and discover it, are eating and drop some food on yourself, or notice a stain after being out and about all day, there is no arguing about the fact that stains are annoying. Online, there are
We’ve been hammering away at our kitchen renovation project for some time now. Remember we started with removing our old kitchen cabinets. Then we went on to remove our kitchen island. And now we have moved on from the tearing downstage to the rebuilding stage. We decided on a glass top stove to fit the kitchen’s
Let me get you involved in one of my marital arguments. Yes, I want you in on this so that you can decide for yourself which action you would take in a similar situation. I had carpet installed in my bedroom a few weeks back. It’s the kind of lush carpeting with extra thick padding
Everyone likes being able to relax after having a long and stressful day, or week in some cases. When you have a jacuzzi tub with jets, relaxing in the tub is very easy. The jets are supposed to help soothe sore muscles and just help relax a person in general. But if you don’t want
You had been hearing a lot of great things about the Swiffer Wet Jet from a neighbor. Since you already use the Swiffer Dusters and the Swiffer Sweeper clean, you decided to add the Swiffer Wet Jet to your collection based on your neighbor’s recommendation. Therefore, you invested in the product, and you loved using
I keep my dishwasher pods under my sink. One night, I finished loading the dishwasher and went to grab a dishwasher pod and found the cabinet slightly damp. Having just renovated my kitchen, it seemed unlikely that it was a leak. I removed everything from under the sink, dried it with some towels, and replaced
Suppose you are preparing to cook dinner for the evening, and you turn on your favorite front burner on your glass top stove. You start boiling water for about 15 minutes. After stepping away for a moment and coming back, you realize that nothing has happened. The right burner is on, but your pot of
Not too long ago, we discussed how to remove kitchen cabinets. However, we didn’t discuss how to remove the kitchen island. Removing a kitchen island is relatively easy if you don’t have any plumbing, gas lines, microwaves, or other appliances installed within them. If there are appliances or other connections, the process is a little more
Wainscoting to me speaks of cool ocean breezes, blue walls, and tacky, distressed driftwood signs on the wall telling me, “Life is a beach.” In other words, wainscoting is very Cape Cod and nautical in style. It is used in many homes, and there is nothing wrong with that. I love it, to be honest.
I don’t enjoy cleaning. In fact, I prefer carpet in the home because my hardwoods and tile show every cat hair and crumb that touches the ground. On top of that, I see streaks of dirt, dried water droplets, and splatters of coffee. Some rooms are better off without carpet: bathrooms and kitchens in particular.
Roses are one of the most popular flowers, and not just in February. Roses have a strong but beautiful smell, come in many different colors, and have different meanings depending on the color of the rose itself. So it’s no surprise that people want to have them in their homes and yards throughout the year.
