Three Unexpected Ways to Create Space In Your Home

That could involved some sort of renovation but it could also involve maximizing what you already have. The following contributed post is entitled, Three Unexpected Ways to Create Space In Your Home.

There are lots of interior-design tricks you can use to create the feeling of space in your home. What many people need, however, is actual space. With that in mind, here are three unexpected ways to create space in your home.

Learn to food shop effectively

Effective food shopping basically means ensuring that every food item you buy is completely used. There are two parts to making this happen.

Firstly, you need to buy foods which you are actually going to eat. It’s fine if you want to try out new foods from time to time and it’s fine if you decide you don’t like them. You should, however, make a point of buying new foods in small quantities even if they’re on offer.

Secondly, you need to be practical about the quantities of food you buy. Buying in bulk isn’t necessarily more economical at all. Even if it is, it may not be economical enough to justify the space bulk purchases take up.

Make it a goal to use up any food you already have. Then make a commitment to buying mindfully. At the very least, this should mean your kitchen cabinets are comfortably full rather than crammed full. It may free up space in your kitchen you can use to store items that are currently in other parts of your home.

Create a home inventory

This is basically a twist on decluttering. Choose an area of your home and go through all the storage locations one at a time. As you do, ask yourself if you would be willing to pay to put the items in a storage container. If the answer is “no”, then move it on unless you have a compelling reason to keep it for now.

If you do keep an item, then take a note of what it is, where it is, and by) when it should be used. Then commit to “using it or losing it”. As a part of this, make sure you check your home inventory before you buy anything new.

This exercise may sound like a lot of hard work, and it can be. It can, however, also be a lot of fun. You may well discover items you never knew you had. It can also help to give you a clearer idea of what sort of insurance cover you need.

Downgrade your technology

Modern homes tend to be full of technology and it can end up taking over a space unless you actively keep it under control. One of the keys to controlling your technology is to be clear about whether or not its usefulness justifies its cost and space.

As a rule of thumb, multifunctional items like phones and tablets can almost always be justified. Single-use items, however, can only be justified if you really want or need the higher level of functionality they usually offer. Even then, you should think carefully.

For example, if you’re a coffee-lover then you might well get regular use out of a barista-standard coffee machine. You could, however, do the same job using a few affordable and compact tools. It would take a bit more effort but could save a lot of space.

Superb Ideas For Tricky-To-Decorate Spaces

Two key focuses of my blog are Financial Literacy/Money and Home/Property Discussions. A key consideration for your living space is decorating it. Decorating your home to your satisfaction will be critical to your quality of life and generally how you feel in your dwelling. The following contributed post is entitled, Superb Ideas For Tricky-To-Decorate Spaces.

Most modern homes maximise the volume of interior space by making sure that everything is square. Older homes have more hidden nooks and crannies. Even so, homeowners of both types often find themselves in situations where they have to decorate tricky spaces. Either they’re too small, hard to reach, or a weird shape.

The good news, though, is that a lot of keen home DIY enthusiasts have come before you. And they’ve figured out myriad ways to get the job done, even in the tightest of spots! Here are some solutions:

Windows With Architectural Details

Some homes have weird windows with architectural features that get in the way. You would think that something as simple as treating a window frame would be easy. But that’s not the case at all. You wind up with bits and pieces of the window design jutting into your room or getting in the way of your tiling work.

Whatever the case, the best approach is to leave the feature alone and then just work around it. With paint, this is easy. With wallpaper, it’s more complicated. And with tiles, it’s the hardest of all. Sticking with a period feature and working around it neatly, however, often creates a beautiful visual effect. In fact, it looks so good, you don’t envy those with simpler setups.

Nooks In The Ceiling

There’s nothing more annoying than trying to repaint a ceiling with a dormer window. The angles are just impossible, even if you have a great ladder.

For some people with double-height ceilings, the problem is even worse. Not only do you have to twist and turn at some weird angles, but you also risk falling to your doom.

The best solution here, according to Access One Scaffolding to build an aluminium frame below the area in which you’re working. The idea is to create a temporary walk surface – like a second floor -to make it easier to get to those tricky areas. If you still can’t reach, you just add extras to the frame until you’re in the perfect position to start painting.

Random Spaces Behind Doors

It’s always hard to know what to do with spaces lurking behind doors. You can’t put an antique table there. And you certainly can’t place pottery there. So what the heck are you supposed to do with it?

One idea is to buy a piece of artwork that just so happens to fit the available space. It won’t get in the way of the door opening, but it’ll also provide visual interest.

Another idea is to install a wall lamp. Again, it shouldn’t get in the way but will also provide a bit of extra beauty.

A Gap Under Your Stairs

The most obvious option here is to create a cupboard for your vacuum cleaner. But what if you have cantilever stairs? Your best bet here is to insert some plants and hope for the best. What you’ll find is that large indoor shrubs look natural and cosy in the nook, thanks to their foliage. You can also try adding lanterns and even attractive bins if it still looks sparse.

Updating Your Office Space: A Guide For Business Owners

Three focuses of my blog are Financial Literacy/Money, Business/Entrepreneurship and Organizational/Management Discussions. Office space in any business or organization is critical. One of the keys to your business is optimizing and updating your office space. The following contributed post is entitled, Updating Your Office Space: A Guide For Business Owners.

If you run an office space as a business owner, you’ll know that keeping your space safe, stylish and up to date is a challenge. Not only are updates to your space costly, but they are time consuming, and often create a disruption to the workflow of the office. But of course, with great power comes great responsibility, and if you want to be a responsible business owner, keeping your space user-friendly and up to date is essential.

How Often Should The Space Be Updated?

If your original office space was well-built and well-designed, you should not need to update it often. With proper maintenance, cleaning and care, the building may only need refurbishments every fifteen to twenty years. This also depends on the business. If you run a café or restaurant with a lot of footfall, these refurbishments should happen more frequently, as the general wear and tear of the place will increase.

What Should Be Prioritized?

As with most things, safety should be the number one priority. If you feel your space needs multiple changes to be made, take it one step at a time. The core safety of the building, its structure and safety exits should come first. Installing fire-safe MCM panels on the outside of your building and ensuring that fire exits are safe and well-signposted are essentials for your building.

After safety is taken care of, the next priority should be your office’s usability for its employees. Offices should be spaces that encourage collaboration, concentration and productivity. This means that the layout of the office should be designed for employees to have both peace and quiet, and spaces to collaborate.

Finally, there are the finishing touches. To make your office a standout space which your employees love to spend time in, add colour, nature and a few easy perks. These are simple additions which transform your office from a mundane place of work to a chic locale.

Some ideas for these design finishing touches are:

Houseplants. These are fantastic additions to any room with natural light. They are inexpensive and beautiful, and amazingly, they help purify the air in your office.
A good quality coffee machine. Seriously. Although a coffee machine is a slightly expensive addition, your employees will be thrilled with this addition. Coffee goes a long way, particularly in stressful times when extra energy reserves are needed.
Chill-out spaces. If your office is not in a city centre, and is not surrounded by cool hangouts for your employees to kick back in on their breaks, create one in your own space. This can be as simple as a few bean bag chairs and a Playstation for everyone to enjoy their downtime.

Outsourcing Your Updates

If you are concerned about updating your office space, contact a contractor who can talk you through the process and ensure the work is being done safely and legally. If you need help with design, contact an office designer for a quote, or use the internet for office design inspiration!

You’ve either chosen to invest in a vacant plot of land or you’ve inherited a plot of land, either way you are most probably feeling unsure about the potential options for utilising that land. Coming into a high-quality piece of land in a great area gives you the opportunity to launch a business from the ground up. It won’t be easy, however if you are serious about making a success of a new venture, then you might want to consider getting creative and coming up with a unique business concept.

Below are a number of business ideas that should allow you to utilise your green space and craft a business from the ground up.

Farm Shop

If your piece of land gets a vast number of passersby, then a good option to consider is to launch a farm shop on the plot of land. There’s a great call for high-quality, luxury farm shops selling local, organic and unique produce, from fruits and vegetables to meats and dairy, and everything in between. You could always opt to start out small with a produce stand or shack, and then as the business grows, move into a larger venue.

Build a golf course

Are you someone who is passionate about sport? If you are, then you might want to consider converting your green space in a beautifully designed golf course. Yes, this would require a lot of hard work, and a lot of investment, but the potential for success is incredible. You would need funds for building the course – you’d need to hire a specialist landscaper, you would need materials funds such as to buy high quality silica sand, for instance, and you would need a strong and well throughout business plan in place.

Create a campsite

Perhaps your plot of vacant land is located in an area that’s popular with tourists, if so then you could consider creating a camp ground. Of course, if you want to create a camping experience that is successful and beats out competitors, you would need to think carefully about the approach that you take. Right now, luxury campsites are extremely popular, as is glamping, so it could be worth investigating what going down this route would cost.

Run summer camps

If you are someone who has experience working with young people, then you might want to consider the idea of running summer camps from your plot of land. Whether it’s a sports-focused summer camp or something more diverse, it doesn’t matter – if you get the design aspect of your summer camp right, you could create a highly successful business.
There you have it, a few simple ideas for how you could utilise your plot of green space to launch and run a highly successful business. Take the time to think your options through carefully, and map out your route to success, before you start investing in your business idea.

Making Sure Your Office Space Is the Best It Can Be

Two of the focuses of my blog are Financial Literacy/Money and Business/Entrepreneurship. A key to the success of your business is it’s office space. It needs to be as efficient as possible and allow your staff to accomplish what they need to accomplish. The following contributed post is entitled, Making Sure Your Office Space Is the Best It Can Be.

When you first start running a small business, you will generally work alone and from home, calling in help from freelancers to complete any tasks that you can’t complete yourself. But as things begin to grow and expand, and as you begin to experience success, chances are you’ll begin to take on some employees and will need to provide them with a space to work in. This is where most businesses will make a move into an office. This is a major step for any startup. After all, it shows success and it also shows commitment and dedication to continue, as you’ll have to sign a contract for the space. Of course, you’re going to want your office to be the best space possible. There are various reasons for this. First, you need the space to be comfortable and functional for staff to complete their roles within, boosting productivity and maximising your business’ profits. Secondly, you want to establish yourself as a serious competitor in your field. You want visitors and clients to see a professional working environment when they check in for meetings or presentations. So, what can you do to achieve all of this? Here are a few simple steps!

Make Sure There’s Plenty of Natural Light

Every office space should have as much natural light as possible. This is essential for your workers’ wellbeing and for their productivity. Natural light regulates the body’s circadian rhythms and lets us know when we should perk up and be awake, or when we should begin to wind down to go to sleep. If your workspace is dim, your workers’ bodies will automatically begin to wind down and they won’t work as hard! So, avoid dim or blue artificial lighting and focus on natural light within the professional space!

Keep On Top of the Plumbing

When we think of plumbing, we tend to think of homes. But offices will require plumbing too! Largely for the toilets and for the shared kitchen space. It’s absolutely essential that you keep on top of the plumbing in your office – whether that’s implementing preventative methods such as Back Flow Prevention or whether it’s calling a plumber at the first sign of a problem. Faulty plumbing can see you having to send staff home (if there isn’t a toilet or water available), spend money on further and worse repairs from ignored problems, or major repair costs for flooding or other major issues.

Invest in Ergonomic Furniture and Equipment

Staff spend a lot of time at their desks. This can be bad for their posture and, consequently, can be pretty bad for their health in the long run if you don’t have the right support for them. This is why every employer should invest in ergonomic furniture and equipment for their staff. This is specially designed to support staff in the right way and increase their wellbeing. It can also prevent you from being faced with a compensation case, which staff could create if they experienced injury or strain from unsupportive office furniture. Consider ergonomic desks, chairs, footrest, back supports, keyboards, mice and more. They may cost more than other, standard furniture and equipment at the outset, but in the long run, they could really make all the difference in regards to your employees’ wellbeing. They’re well worth the investment!

Have a Staff Kitchen

Nobody wants to be stuck behind their desk day in and day out. It’s bad for morale. Instead, make sure that there’s some sort of office kitchen where staff can retreat on their breaks. A good space will have a sofa or other seating for your employees to make use of. It will also have a table and chairs for those who want to eat properly away from their desk. A kettle or coffee machine is ideal for tea breaks and some sort of fridge is good for keeping staff’s food fresh until lunchtime. This communal space can also prove positive for staff bonding – creating a stronger team who will work better together!

These are just a few pieces of advice that you might like to bear in mind when it comes to making sure that your office space is all it should be. This is an area of your business that you could greatly benefit from focusing on and improving. So, get started as soon as possible to reap the rewards sooner!

Building Your Own Workspace? Consider These Aspects First

A key focus of my blog is Business/Entrepreneurship. In some instances you may need to may need to build your own workspace. In some instances it’s easier said than done as there are numerous considerations. The following contributed post is entitled, Building Your Own Workspace? Consider These Aspects First.

There are numerous old sayings that relate to the importance of having an appropriate workspace in which to do your work. Trying to muddle along as best you can with what you have can only work for so long, especially if you happen to have a job that depends on precision and accuracy. If your work involves time spent in a kitchen, a lab, a ward or any other facility where the timely following of instructions is a necessity, then you need a workspace that is up to the job.

You can request the building of a space, and lay down your specifications for the expert contractors who will put it together. You, yourself, can construct the space to your own specs and oversee every part of the work. Either way, it is essential to keep in mind certain basic principles which will guide the successful building of a functional workspace, and ensure the right results from your efforts time and again.

Make sure your space is easy to clean

If you’re working in a lab, sterility is absolutely essential – and it’s the same story if you’re in any kind of commercial kitchen. Scientific experimentation or simple replication is dependent upon laboratory conditions – in other words, the merest speck of dirt, the merest impurity on an important surface can negate the work that has been done to achieve your goals. This means that surfaces should be chosen for their ease of cleaning, resistance to moisture and ability to show up any impurity that might linger. Sinks, tables and floors are all of vital importance in this regard.

Storage needs to be accessible and unobtrusive

For ideal results, ingredients and implements need to be accessed at exactly the right times, used and put back where they belong – the importance of avoiding clutter is something that applies to all workspaces. A clumsily placed item can lead to spillage, cross-contamination or worse, so ensure that your workspace has dedicated storage which doesn’t get in the way, but is easy to access when you need it. Using carbon fiber design to create precisely the right implements is certainly a good idea; it’s a versatile compound that can deliver excellent results.

There must be room for maneuver

Space is essential when you are working with anything that may be volatile, anything that may give off heat, or anything that needs to be left to itself for a spell of time. Whether in a lab or a kitchen, you’ll need to have room to move around to look for items, and in some cases (such as emergencies) just to get out of the way. Account for this room when putting together your workspace – particularly if you will be accompanied in there at any time. Bumping into another person constantly – as will happen in cramped spaces – is far from ideal in a working area.

Ensuring that everything is just the way it needs to be can make a huge difference when you are looking for the perfect working space. Considering these points, and others, will help you get the results you need.

How to Keep Your Office In Tip-Top Condition

The first principle of my blog is Creating Ecosystems of Success, and two key focuses are Financial Literacy/Money and Business/Entrepreneurship. I key to keeping your business running optimally is keeping your office in tip-top condition. It can be done if properly planned for. The following contributed post is entitled, How to Keep Your Office In Tip-Top Condition.

* * *

Your office might not be the top of your priority list when it comes to your business, but it is worthwhile paying attention to, for one simple reason: it can have a big impact on how people view your company. You’d take a company with a clean and well put together office more seriously than a company that worked out of a dark and dingy office, wouldn’t you? As such, it’s important that you’re taking steps to keep your office in tip-top condition. It’ll boost your company’s appearance and overall morale.


Clearing Out

We’re beginning to understand much more about what the mind needs to work at its best. If your place is cluttered, dark, and dingy, then the whole mood of the office space will be brought down. On the other hand, there’s much to enjoy when it comes to working in a light and spacious workspace! It has been some time since you’ve had a clear out, take a look at going through your office and getting rid of anything that is no longer needed. You might just be surprised at how much better the space looks afterward.

Regular Cleaning

Your space might be free of unnecessary items, but that won’t solve the problem of dirt and grime, which can build up over time, and significantly compromise the overall quality of your office space. As such, it’s recommended that you hire a cleaner. Some offices try to keep the job in-house, but it never works out — all it takes is one busy day, and all of a sudden, the task has been overlooked. If you hire an outside cleaner, you’ll know that you’ll always have a tidy space to work in, no matter how busy you are. Even if you’re OK with a little mess, remember that your office visitors may not be.

Beware of Mother Nature

It’s all good and well taking care of the general mess that accumulates, but what about the big issues? If you live in an area that gets extreme weather from time to time, then you run the risk of arriving at your office one morning and seeing a terrible sight. As such, it’s important that you’re taking steps to ensure that mother nature can only do minimal damage to your office space. For instance, performing regular checks on the roof and other vulnerable spots, and also having commercial window film by SolarTex installed. It’ll help contain any broken glass contained by heavy hail or other weather. You’ll also want to brush up any outdoor areas that are affected by extreme weather — even if it doesn’t technically belong to you, those entrance ways do have an influence on how people perceive your business.

Furniture Upgrades

Your office might have looked the part when you first arrived, but if that was ten years ago, then it’s probably time for an update. Because we see our office every day, we usually don’t notice that it’s beginning to look a little behind the times until it’s way outdated. Make a habit of upgrading your infrastructure before it’s too old.

Choosing The Perfect Premises For Your Business

Two of the focuses of my blog are Financial Literacy/Money and Business/Entrepreneurship. One of the most important considerations for your business is its location. In choosing the space, there some important aspects to consider. The following contributed post is entitled, Choosing The Perfect Premises For Your Business.

* * *

When you have an idea for a business, the lightbulb moment can send your heart racing as you begin to branch out more and more ideas in your mind. You have the chance to create something and take this project to heights that perhaps you couldn’t have dreamed of before. It’s not beyond the realms of possibility for something like this to take off – those at the very top are just regular people like you, remember.

There are a bunch of aspects in the business world that you must look into and research before committing. It sounds like a difficult thing to approach, but it’s not a terribly challenging task. One of the things to consider is simply where your business is going to operate. Different premises are needed for different types of work, so it’s something that shouldn’t be brushed past too lightly. If you’re currently in a position where you’re looking to get an idea up and running, or you’d just like to be made aware of what’s out there, let’s have a little chat about just some of the avenues you can head down.

Office Spaces

If your business is primarily a sit-down job with lots of administration, then you’ll probably need to check out any offices that are available to rent. You could be a digital marketing company, a law firm or an accountant. Office spaces are typically built with enough space to house a group looking to sit at a bunch of desks all day. Working in a fresh and pretty-looking office also helps with professionalism – it beats working in the back of a store, above a nightclub or something else less fancy.


Fabricating stuff is a gritty process that can get dirty a lot of the time, so a pretty environment isn’t necessary. Groups, like WES engineering solutions, that are looking to manufacture products and provide similar services will often need factories that will house the appropriate machinery or apparatus. Whatever you’re looking to make, there needs to be clear and safe premises for it to take place.


A warehouse is traditionally a place for companies to store their products or raw materials so that they can distribute them or work on them. Whilst they’re necessary for this kind of work, warehouses are fairly flexible and can be used for multiple ventures. For example, if you want to open up a gym or something similar, then you need a large space to keep the equipment. A warehouse is a perfect place to run one.


Finally, if you’re someone looking to bootstrap a business and creating something fairly low-key, then there’s no reason why you can’t use your own home as a place of work. Sure, if you’re looking to bring in employees to help you on your journey, then your home office or living room won’t cut it. If you’re a writer or hoping to start a little marketing venture, then creating a professional setting in the comfort of your own home could work wonders.

Think Strategically About Remodeling Your Business Space

The first principle of my blog is Creating Ecosystems of Success, and two key focuses are Financial Literacy/Money and Business/Entrepreneurship. Your business concept/idea is important but your business space is as well. The following contributed post discusses important considerations for your business space and is entitled, Think Strategically About Remodeling Your Business Space.

Choosing to remodel the building or space where your business is based is on the plus side exciting, on the other hand, it can be quite an overwhelming task to behold. Unless you work in construction or have experience in the trade, knowing where to begin, what to do and how much it’s all going to cost may leave you feeling baffled.
To remodel your business space with confidence, take on board the below tips to think strategically when creating a plan of action to give your business space remodeling some much-needed structure.

Purpose Of Remodelling

Before you begin brainstorming ideas of what you would like to change in your business space, it’s firstly necessary to consider why you want the remodeling to take place. In doing so, you will have a purpose and an end goal to work towards. The leading causes owners tend to remodel are mainly due to the following;

• To take responsibility for repairs and replace old electric and pipe systems
• To adhere to health and safety regulations
• To add personality to your office in line with your brand
• To entice clients to your business
• To update or refresh tired, shabby decor
• To change the design of the office, e.g. to open plan
• To generate new departments as the company functions and processes change
• To improve employee productivity at work by creating an aesthetically pleasing environment
• To launch a new business image

The purpose you choose for changing your business space might include a few of the above. If so, note each point down and refer to this during the remodeling process to ensure you don’t deviate from the objective.

Budget-Friendly Ideas And Next Steps

With the aim confirmed, it’s now time to brainstorm ideas and solutions to meet this goal. This will be directly linked to your chosen purpose(s). For instance, if it’s a new office image to represent a new brand you seek, with an open office plan space and an environment that increases productivity for you and your employees, your ideas will be linked with this objective in mind. This could mean;

Idea – Knocking down any existing walls within the business space, bar toilet, and staff rooms.

Next Steps – Checking whether there are any load bearing walls or walls that have electrical wires and pipes running through. To obtain quotes from a few handymen to assess the work.

Idea – To replace the existing flooring for durable, hard-wearing, modern flooring, such as concrete.

Next Steps – This is a task that would logically take place after knocking the walls down. You would need a professional such as a concrete contractor, R&M concrete to assess whether the flooring you require is possible in your building and a quote for how much it will cost.

The remodelling plans for your business space should be thought through to assess if the work is both practically possible and affordable. If for instance, the ideas you devise are not cost-effective regarding the budget you have, you will need to think of alternative approaches to reach your objective. Solutions to this could be, choosing to remodel at a later date when you have the funds to put your ideas into action or applying for a business loan to put your plan into motion sooner.

If you’re an entrepreneur working from home then it is absolutely essential you have an office space that both inspires and motivates you to do your best work. Often people will work from whatever space they have available, but this can be damaging to your overall productivity and the level of work you produce.

With this in mind, here are 6 different ways to create the perfect home office space:                             

     1.  Use A Colour Scheme That You Like

If you’re able to decorate the room that you’re designating to be your office, decorating it in a colour scheme that you like will encourage you to spend more time there. There is nothing worse than sitting in a room that is poorly decorated, or that is designed in a way you absolutely hate. Not only does it have you worrying about if you’ll ever get around to renovating, but it puts a dampener on your whole mood.

    2. Have Wall Art And Decorations That Inspire You

Accessorising your office is not a necessity, but it can definitely help inspire you on a day to day basis. The little touches you make will truly make the office yours, making it space you’re happy to be in for up to 8 hours a day. A popular way to decorate an office among entrepreneurs is to create a wall of different sized, motivational prints, something which looks incredible when done properly.

   3. Ensure You Have A Large, Sturdy Desk

Having a desk is important in a home office, but ensuring its one that can take at least 8 hours of work each day is absolutely essential. There are lots of good desks available on the high street, but if you want to something that suits your working style, you could try creating your own our of various different materials including wood and steel.

For more information on using steel, you can visit Wasatch Steel online steel sales here.

   4. Make Lots Of Space For Storage

Chances are that working from home will mean you’ll have lots of bits and pieces you’ll need to store. Whether they’re notes for conference calls, old invoices or stock and merchandise – storage space is incredibly important to the look and feel of your office as it means you’ll be able to keep everything neat and tidy. You know what they say, a tidy office makes for a tidy mind!

   5. Have A White Board To Note Down Creative Ideas

You never know when inspiration may strike and although jotting down ideas in a notebook is perfect, having a whiteboard handy to plan out your ideas beforehand is a great way to encourage creativity. It can be used to put together lose plans that can in the future be turned into official notes in your notebooks, avoiding wasting paper and making your office an eco-friendly space!
