If your thumb is any color but green, you might want to look into adding artificial flowers to your home or office rather than trying to maintain the health and conditions of real flowers. There are some artificial flowers and bouquets that look astonishingly real, adding both color and beauty to any decor without the high maintenance of keeping them alive. The only thing you’ll ever have to do is dust them on occasion.

Chances are, if you have bought silk Persian carpets of the highest quality for your home, you spent quite a bit of money. To protect your investment for years to come, spend a little extra on a non-skid Persian carpet pad that directs dirt and dust towards the floor rather than the underside of the carpet. It’s a minor expense that will more than pay for itself in the long run.

If you’re concerned about the slippery floors in your family-room, play-room, basement, or even in your kid’s room, consider adding a few self-stick carpet squares strategically on the floor in order to minimize the potential hazard of your children taking a spill. Carpet tiles are also an easy way to lay down carpeting. No need for a professional to do the job.

When you are considering changing up the bland look of a room, consider your walls first. You can of course throw a fresh coat of paint over the walls, or you can add decorative textured wall panels to a given room. These textured wall panels provide a 3D effect that can really make a room come alive. There are a variety of textures to choose from and all that is needed is for you to add your own creative stamp by applying and painting them on one or all of your room’s wall.
