The Perfect Basement Apartment

When we got married, my husband and I moved into a lovely brick home. Because we were young and in debt, we would have benefited from being able to rent out a portion of our home to tenants. Unfortunately, our home didn’t include a basement apartment. If your basement is currently not being used, consider transforming it into a basement apartment. Before renting it out to tenants, you will need to make sure it meets certain specifications. For example, most local governments require basement apartments to contain a certain amount of windows. Usually, you will also have to ensure that your windows meet size requirements. On this blog, you will discover how to create the perfect basement apartment with the right windows.

Decorating A Nursery Before Your Baby Is Born? 3 Tips For Choosing Curtains

From changing diapers to cleaning spit-up, you may find yourself cleaning a lot more than you ever did after you have a baby.

Since allergens can be a problem for babies, it's important that you're able to keep the nursery as clean as possible.

Consider a Double Layer of Curtains

Instead of hanging just a single set of curtains in the window, you should look into the benefits of having a double layer instead. Having a thick curtain that can be closed when you want darkness in the room and a lighter curtain underneath that still allows in a lot of natural light can be great for giving the room a good amount of lighting.

Dual layered curtains can also provide a lot of design options since you can choose complementing colors that will help spruce up the way that the nursery looks.

Choose Neutral Colors

When checking out different colors of curtains available, it's a good idea to pick colors that will remain a great fit in the room for many years to come. While pastel colors can be suitable for a nursery, it may not be appropriate as your baby gets older. Choosing neutral colored curtains can allow you to design the nursery in different ways as they get older without feeling the need to replace the curtains.

As you look for ways to spruce up the nursery before your baby arrives, it's a good idea to focus on having new window treatments put in. By looking for curtains that will be easy to care for and look great, you can make the nursery easier to clean and make sure that the nursery is the perfect space to care for your baby.
