Homes need to experience renovations every now and again.

Upgrade Your Home Ready for Summer

These go beyond a fresh lick of paint on the walls and new furniture. Fresh paint isn't going to disguise the cracks in the plaster or stop it from crumbling down. Everything in a home suffers from wear and tear and won't last forever, no matter how well made it is.


Start with the Internal Doors

Internal doors are one of the easiest home renovations to make. Chances are the doors hanging in your doorframes were there when you moved in. Internal doors do not need to be changed very often. These inspiring primed internal doors can help get you started. If you are undertaking major renovations like adding an extension, this is the perfect time to upgrade the doors in your home. Internal doors need to match.

If Adding an Extension

Adding an extension can cause a lot of stress while it is being built, but it will soon be worth it. Any home upgrade can result in stress. Mismatched doors will ensure that chaotic feeling never really leaves. Upgrade all the internal doors at the same time as adding the extension. There's no guarantee that the door picked for the extension will match existing internal doors.

Glazing

Perhaps an extension is out of reach for your home. Doors with glazing can completely transform the space. Natural sunlight travels from room to room. Apart from chasing out the shadows, it can make the rooms themselves seem bigger.

While the Doors are on Order

Your new internal doors will take a few days at least to arrive. If they're unfinished, you will need a few more to paint them. Instead of wasting time while waiting for doors, use it to see to the walls, ceilings and floors. If there are new light fixtures, you'll need to paint and maybe even plaster over where the old light fixtures were. If your plaster is old and cracked, it is easier to put in fresh plaster without worrying about damaging new doors.

And Finally...

If the flooring is being replaced, do it before the new doors are installed. Flooring is an awkward thing to change. It requires moving all the furniture out of one room to pull up the old flooring and put down the new. This is an excellent time to upgrade the furniture. If your home is undergoing full renovations, why put old furniture into new rooms? Modern Furniture Shop has a range of furniture to suit any renovations and extensions. Instead of moving old furniture from room to room to put in new flooring, old furniture can be donated or recycled and the flooring can be put in just before the new furniture arrives.

Home renovations can be stressful, but worth it in the long term. Make sure the chaos goes away when the builders do by having matching doors and new furniture. If full renovations aren't possible, new internal doors can transform the atmosphere in your home.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

6979

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
