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.

Are You Enclosing Your Outdoor Patio?

Have you decided that you will use your patio more if you enclose it? Maybe you are even trying to get the project finished before the holidays. If so, you are probably both excited and a bit stressed. After all, Thanksgiving is not that far away, is it?

Do you have your design plan already? If you do, then there's no need to keep reading. On the other hand, maybe you are still looking for ideas. From buying roller shades for the enclosed patio's windows to choosing the other decor, here are some ideas that might help you.

Select Roller Shades - As you plan the design of your enclosed patio, will part of the design include something like a bay window or a picture window? If you have a lovely garden, you will probably want to be able to look at it while you're in your enclosed patio.

Think about getting roller shades for whichever windows you will have in the new room. Not only are roller shades attractive, but they are also very affordable. The fact that they will go with any kind of decor you select is just icing on the cake. Roller shades are very easy to install. In fact, if you enjoy home projects, you can probably do the job yourself. Of course, if you aren't comfortable with installing the shades yourself, the place where you bought them will be happy to do the work for you. Contact a company like Shades West.

After the shades are in place, you'll find that they are very easy to maintain.

The Other Decor - Start by deciding on a theme for your enclosed patio. For example, if you want a rustic theme, then heavy wooden furniture with leather or denim upholstery would be a good choice. Maybe you want a garden theme for your new room. If so, consider buying wicker furniture. Traditional furniture would be a good choice for a garden theme, too. Just choose upholstery that has things like flowers and ferns as the main design. Or go with solid color upholstery and get the garden effect with the addition of throw pillows that depict things like birds, flowers, and butterflies.

Carry out your theme as you select artwork for your newly enclosed patio. For instance, if you went with a rustic theme, paintings or photographs of rustic settings with wooden cabins would be a nice touch. If you are going with a garden theme, choose things like flowers and children playing in a garden for your artwork.
