Home Decorating Ideas – Home From A Decor Magazine

Are you looking for home decorating ideas and want to make your rooms like some from a decor magazine? You know how you want to decorate home and your rooms to feel but can’t get from the builder white walls and your old stuff to that wonderful comfy inviting look you got when you were in the model of the home you purchased?

There are decorator magazines, home decorating shows, web sites, retailers, great books with very good instructions – all these are great sources of home decorating ideas. Visiting model homes again will help. Start with one room you love in a decor magazine or model home. Let’s call it your ‘dream room’. If you can go to the model home to feel and study the space or the room you will get the best results. Ask if you may take pictures in the models too. This will help when you get home and when you shop. Take a tape measure and a spiral notebook with you to make notes and draw sketches.

Antique Wood Cook Stoves

Antique wood cook stoves can be found in many specialist stove restoration stores both online and offline, and are surprisingly popular even now in the early 21st century. Many stoves originally built in the 1800s or early 1900s are still used today having been fully restored and refurbished. The question is, why use an antique stove?

Firstly, we should explain exactly what an antique wood cook stove actually is. A wood burning cook stove is a traditional cooking appliance which requires no external electricity supply and which rather than using gas, electricity or other fossil fuels can operate purely by burning natural wood. This wood for your wood burning cook stove can be bought from a hardwood supplier or even chopped yourself from your own timber supplies.

Kitchen Design Ideas

Kitchen Design Ideas

Kitchens have evolved a lot over the years. Once found only in the rear of the house, today’s kitchen design ideas takes the kitchen out the background. The challenge for kitchen design ideas is in creating a more open-faced kitchen, that is part of a dining area, a family room or a great room.
