Kids Love Comfort Too!

We know our kids and grandchildren love to play, but when they’re in “chill mode”, they like to be comfortable too, right? This week’s blog post was inspired by my grandson, Elijah. He’s 5 years old and loves to do everything his Daddy does. So, when it comes time for my son, Andre, to get some work done on his laptop, Andre gets on the family room floor, and starts tapping away.

Elijah, on the other hand, will not get on the floor without his favorite throw blanket. He grabs my Android Galaxy tablet, and pulls up his ABC Mouse app. After about half an hour, Elijah adds a pillow to prop his head up. Well, of course, about 20 minutes later, Elijah is knocked out, asleep, next to his Daddy. Yep… he makes his space quite comfortable 🙂

Well, your child likes to be comfortable, too, right? Here are a couple of ideas that you might want to consider adding to your little one’s space, so they can be comfortable, just like Mom or Dad.

How To Upgrade Your Space On a Budget

With Spring just around the corner, you may be wondering how you can upgrade your home or office without blowing your savings or being broke each payday. Well, here are a few tips and suggestions that will help you get it done with no regrets! 

Prioritize your rooms

First, figure out which rooms you’d like to spruce up a bit.. Since most of us work with a tight budget, when it comes to updating our home, let’s just work on one room at a time. This will help you figure out all the supplies you’ll need for the rest of the rooms you’ll be working on. Trust me, chances are, you’ll feel like a yo-yo, going back and forth to the store to get that one little think you forgot, while upgrading your first room.

For the sake of time, I’ll just talk about general concepts to consider, that you can use in each room you’re going to upgrade.The bigger the project, the more detailed you’ll get. Let us know if we can help you find the answers or resources to help you get the project done. We’re here to help!

Shopping online is a great way to compare prices, get exclusive discounts and coupons.

Colors and textures

Each room should have its own look and feel, but still be somewhat related to the look and feel of the other rooms in your home or office. To get your creative juices flowing, follow this thought process:

  • Do you want to completely change the room color and texture? If so, wall paint will be your best bet. You can find some really good deals on paint colors that someone thought they wanted, but decided against. I once received 80% off two gallons of paint this way! Check with your local Home DepotLowe’sAce Hardware and general store (yes, they do still exist! Lol) to see if they have any such treasures. Take your time and shop around. Also, look for sales, coupons and deals on the painting supplies you will need.
  • What is the focal point of the room? Sometimes, something as simple as adding a decorative throw pillow or throw blanket with brilliant colors, can change the focal point of a room. If you can’t go all the way with new flooring, add another splash of color, using a creative throw rug, and BAM… your space will POP!
  • You’d be surprised at how a few new light fixtures can go a long way! A few cool new lamps and ceiling fans are always an easy, and budget-friendly solution to changing up a room’s look and feel. Start checking for sales now, though. The warmer it gets outside, the closer to boiling over your budget will get.
