Living with kids requires a family room that works for the entire family, especially the kids. Finding the dècor balance between day-home style dècor and a white crystal palace for the parents is often difficult. It needs to look sophisticated - where grownups will want to hang out, as well as withstand the tornado of juice, toys, Lego pieces and crayons that children bring along with them. A family room that works for the entire family can be possible with a few simple ideas to incorporate into your home’s design.
1. Altering the soil adjacent to a house. Altering the slope of soil along the perimeter of a house can result in water seeping toward the house. Wet soil will swell and can actually lift a house foundation upward causing extensive interior and exterior damage.
For most of us, our homes are not only the biggest investment we will make, but it is also our pride and joy, a place that we make our own. Whether it is a new home or an older home that you buy, eventually it will need some repairing, renewing or redecorating, which will lead you down the same bumpy road that most of us try to avoid as long as possible... the road to home renovations.
No one enjoys living in a cluttered, dirty home. But when laundry, toys and papers pile up, and kitchens and bathrooms get gross, parents can feel overwhelmed and paralyzed.
