Hydrotherapy in Hot Baths May Relieve Stress

(NewsUSA) – As you get older, you depend on the simple things in life to help relieve stress — the arms of a loved one, the comfort of your mattress, shower pressure and possibly a few too many Dove chocolates. But did you know your bathtub can be a source of much needed therapeutic benefits? Hot baths offer many relaxing health advantages — they’re a natural detox because they increase your core temperature, dilate blood vessels, improve circulation and clear lymph nodes to stimulate the immune system. Since most Americans are also magnesium deficient, according to the National Academy of Sciences, adding magnesium-rich Epsom salt to a bath has further benefits: it reduces inflammation, improves insulin absorption, relieves stress, helps nerve function and plenty more. In fact, some bathtubs are actually designed with different forms of therapy to target specific diseases and illnesses. For instance, the walk-in tub from the Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co. combines chromotherapy, aromat...

 


6 Tips For a Fabulous Home Entrance

The front entrance to your home is the first impression that your guests get of you and your home. You never get a second chance to make a good first impression, so start out right where it counts; at your front door. Here are some ways to put a welcoming look on your home's entrance: 1. Courtyard - Think of cool, cozy areas deep within adobe houses and you have an idea of what a courtyard could be. Another example is a New Orlean's style iron gated entrance complete with climbing vines and bubbling fountains. If you don't have a large entrance, borrow some square footage from the front yard and draw the eye into your entrance. Create interest with arches, greens, seating, and anything else you can imagine in the interior courtyard of perhaps a Spanish villa. Then scale it to fit your entrance and enjoy. You may want to hire a landscape designer to create an enclosed courtyard to suit your particular style. 2. Fireplace - Nothing says high style like a niche fireplace in your front entrance. A warm, welcom...

Let's take a look at some of the incredible things you can do to make your pool area go way beyond ordinary: 1. Waterfall - A waterfall has become one of the most popular features in any pool.

ShoppingnYard Sales for Your Next Piece of Treasures

Buying furniture pieces at yard sales offers many options, but you must look closely to know what you're getting. Are you interested in trying your hand at some creative furniture painting? If you don't already have an old piece of furniture to practice on, shopping yard sales is the best way to come up with a piece. If you are buying the yard sale furniture for the sake of practicing your creative idea, buy away! If you are looking for a particular piece to use, take time to look the furniture over to make sure you are getting a solid piece at a good deal. For instance, if you want to buy a small dresser for a guest room and want to give it a country look, your first concern should be the stability of the furniture. You can give almost any style the look you want, as long as the furniture is sturdy and in good condition. Look to see if any of the wood is buckling or if the piece has any deep scratches that can't be sanded out. If you want it to have an old look, the scratches might not matter so much to ...

 


Choosing a Sofa that Will Stand the Test of Time

A living room sofa is likely to outlive a lot of things - from the family car and microwave to the kids' trendy hairstyles. Most people keep a sofa from six to 15 years before buying something new.

If you are one of those consumers - or soon will be - here are some tips on how to choose your next sofa wisely. According to Paula Hoyas, vice president of upholstery merchandising for La-Z-Boy, it is important to pay careful attention to the quality elements that give a piece its lasting power.

For instance, La-Z-Boy offers a 10-year limited warranty on the cushions of all pieces within its Inspired Living collection. The duration of this warranty reflects the collection's quality ...

Accessorize Your Bathroom on a Budget

(NewsUSA) – Decorating a bathroom on a budget is a lot like updating a wardrobe on a budget. Work with what you have, and use accessories to update and add the “wow” factor. In the bathroom, accessorizing can even include bathroom sink faucets. “With a pre-assembled drain assembly such as Speed Connect, a new faucet is easier to add than a new coat of paint,” says Gray Uhl, design director for American Standard. “Even better, top performing lifetime finishes and drip-free, solid brass faucets start as low as $100.” Trend No. 1: Warmer Finishes. Special finishes in warmer tones such as satin nickel, oil-rubbed bronze and blackened bronze are currently popular in hardware and faucets, coordinating well with creams and browns in linens and wall décor. “Matte black finish is the proverbial height of fashion for faucets and accessories right now,” says Leslie Clagett on her blog, kbculture.blogspot.com. Trend No. 2: American Minimalism. “Styles such...

 


How to Clean Any Room in 15 Mintues

Is there anything worse than a dirty bathroom? Towels on the floor, toothpaste in the sink, and a frightening looking toilet can make you not even want to open the door, let alone use your bathroom. But with a little forethought and planning, you can make this one of the easiest rooms to keep clean. Ready? Go! Your first task is to squirt a little toilet bowl cleaner in the toilet. We’ll come back to this in a bit, but for now just add the cleaner and close the lid. Next are the towels (and clothes). Having a place to hang them is a must. (If you don’t, put this on your list of tasks to do when you have more than 15 minutes.) If towels are soiled and really shouldn’t be displayed, toss them into the hamper. If the hamper is located in the bathroom, make sure it has a lid. If there is no lid, then move the hamper to another location – perhaps a walk-in closet. And, since you’re putting the towels away, why not put out some fresh ones…something that will be appr...

 


How to Free Up Space In Your Garage

As the keeper of everything that is really not worthy to go into the house, your garage can be one of the messiest places in your home. Why? Because it’s viewed as nothing more than a storage area and a place for your car to live. If you’re like most people, your garage is probably a jumble of tools, old toys, sporting equipment, and just plain trash. While this is not the time to drag everything out to the driveway and do a complete clean (save that for a Saturday in the spring), there are a few things you can do in your 15-minute allocation of time – although some preparation must have taken place prior. Be sure you have organized your garage in such a way that everything has a place – and that means on a wall, on a shelf, in a cabinet or in a designated floor area. It’s helpful to label these areas so that when you do a 15-minute decluttering, you know where everything goes. When you’re ready to start, first take your car(s) out of the garage. It’s ea...

 


Tips for DIY Bathroom Projects

If your bathrooms are out of date and falling short on style, it might be time for a remodel. You don't have to pay a professional to get professional results, though. You can make small or even big changes to your bathrooms yourself. Here are some ideas for do-it-yourself bath remodels that can save you time and money: Keep It Simple When doing a full remodel, try to make things a little easier on yourself by not getting too crazy. For example, when replacing your old toilet with a new one, install the new toilet in the same place as the old one to avoid cutting new holes in your floor and messing with the plumbing. For vanities and tubs, if you are replacing, aim to find replacements that are the same width to avoid having to cut into walls. Tile Work Tiling your bathroom walls or the floors can be a lot of work. You can save yourself some trouble in the future by choosing a neutral color scheme for the flooring and wall tiles. This can make it easier to redecorate in the future if your new dÈcor sc...

 


Beautiful Backyard Water Features

Not everyone wants a swimming pool in their backyard, but most everyone enjoys a water feature. Water is relaxing and such a desirable part of an overall backyard oasis. But, aside from a pool, what are the ways to enjoy the soothing sounds of water without a swimming pool? Let's take a look at several ways to add water to your own oasis: 1. Koi Pond - This centuries old water feature may seem exotic, but is becoming more and more available to the homeowner. The new trend of koi ponds currently feature things like an amazing vanishing edge that makes the pond look like it's suspended in mid-air. The koi can be trained to eat out of your hand and make incredible pets; some living for as much as 70 years. In fact, the oldest living koi is said to have lived to the ripe old age of 276. 2. Man-Made River - Take a look at some of the beautiful rivers that landscape contractors can design in your backyard. The sight and sound of the babbling brook is so relaxing after a long day at work. An added bonus is that ...

 


How to Include More Stone in Your Landscaping

Landscaping with stone, or stonescaping, has many uses. Not only can using stone for your hardscapes serve a practical purpose, it can also add much beauty and interest to your yard. Dry stacked or mortared, real stone or faux rocks, here are some ideas for you to implement: Path - This is one of the most obvious uses when you think of stone, but you're not limited to one stone after the other. Patterns and colors can all come into play to make it original. Bench - One solid slab on a strong base gives you an instant bench. Tuck it in the trees for an element of surprise. Outdoor Kitchen - This can be built with stacked flagstone or perhaps river stone on the face of it. However it's done, the beauty will be as pleasing as the kitchen's function. Patio Area - Again, you can choose from many designs and stone to make your patio interesting. Have fun with it. Retaining Wall - Create a half wall for your needs and have the added benefit of another area for people to sit. Fireplace - Fireplaces are not just...
