Idea generation for interior renovation

Want to renovate your home but don’t know where to start? Often, the creative phase of deciding that you want to do something to change up your house’s décor is the most difficult step. It’s easy to realize that you’re tired of the same old colors palette, furniture arrangement, and floor plan, but figuring out what you’d like it to be instead can be incredibly challenging. That is where interior designers usually come in.

Replacing the interior designer

If you’re like many Americans, however, the stipend required at the hands of a designer is out of your reach. But thanks to Pat Elliot, owner and head designer of The Borders Design House, that doesn’t mean you are stuck with the same boring décor for the rest of your life. Pat has come up with some tried and true tips for revving up your creative juices.

Creating a "mood board"

First of all, if you’re running dry on your own ideas of what you want your home’s interior to look like, try borrowing from the experts. There are magazines, books, and web pages galore that cover every type of interior style imaginable. Elliot suggested you use these resources to come up with a "mood board" or folder that compiles all the designs, patterns, colors, and styles you find attractive.

You could also try looking at manufacturers’ literature-try paint, carpet, or furniture catalogs for starters. Elliot said, "Given that the intent is that you buy their products, you can be sure that the decorating schemes and room sets illustrated have been professionally crafted. What better way to tap into expert design ideas?"

A Brief History of Home Baseboard Heaters

From the time cavemen discovered fire, we’ve used heat to not only cook our food but keep ourselves warm during the harsh, cold nights. Throughout the generations, we learned to hone fire to our will, even so much as to gather heat from something other than flames. It’s through this intuitive nature that we created what we know today as the modern home baseboard radiator. This is a brief history of home radiators and their evolution over the generations.
