Before and After Gray Kitchen – DIY Kitchen Makeover Gray Cabinets

Sometimes you love your significant other more than you love their home—and that’s OK! Marrying two different design styles when you move in together is something most every couple has to navigate. But sometimes moving in together shines a light on existing problems with the design and function of a space that might have gone unnoticed with just one person in the home.

That was the case for Sheridan Ferrara, whose now-husband Matt already owned his home when they started dating. “When we first started dating, he warned me of the state of the kitchen,” Sheridan says. Because it was a rental for more than two decades, the house had more than its fair share of quirks—and the cook space was among the worst offenders.

“The cupboards had film of at least two decades of finger and food grease,” Sheridan says, “and the floor was permanently yellow no matter what

While at Home, Spend Some Kitchen Time with a Chef

On Saturday night, chef Dawn Burrell of Kulture cooked some chicken alone in a kitchen. Across Houston, several other home cooks were doing the same, going step-by-step with Burrell in a virtual cooking class over the Zoom video-conferencing platform.

A Guide to Effectively Plan Kitchen Renovation Budget

A Guide to Effectively Plan Kitchen Renovation Budget

The kitchen adds a lot to the comfort and décor of your home. That is why a kitchen renovation can significantly increase the worth of the home.

How much remodeling a kitchen will cost you depends upon several factors. Minor improvements to major structural changes open the doors to different budget scenarios i.e. $5000 to $ 100,000. Most homeowners spend around $22,000.

The average cost for a kitchen remodel depends upon the size of your kitchen, type of finishes, plumbing conditions, appliances needed, how you plan on tackling the renovations and where you live. Here I have divided kitchen remodeling in three categories to help you tackle your renovation and plan your budget accordingly.

1. Minor Kitchen Remodeling

These kitchen renovations range between $5000-$25,000. They generally involve the addition of new cabinets hardware, light fixtures or addition of backsplashes. The major elements

25 Cozy Farmhouse Entryway Decor Ideas

cozy farmhouse entryway decor ideas cover

Farmhouse décor is extremely popular as it’s very cozy and chic and timeless, and we’ve already shared some ideas on such décor at home. Today I’d like to show you some more ways to decorate in this style, and this roundup is dedicated to farmhouse entryways.


Farmhouse is usually about neutrals: white, off-white, tan, grey, olive green, creamy and other shades like that mixed up all together or just some of them used. You can also try to add a bit of black or graphite grey for some drama – put a chalkboard sign or some textiles in these colors.

To make your neutral space not boring and cool, you can add texture here. Use baskets, jute rugs, wooden furniture, metal wire baskets and some natural decorations to make your entryway catchy and chic.

Thousands of injuries occur in bathroom each year, CDC reports

Keeping up with hygiene is a good idea, but watch your step. The bathroom is full of ways to hurt yourself — and a new report estimates that nearly a quarter of a million Americans age 15 or older can back that up.

Bathing and showering appear to be particularly dangerous. Overall, about two-thirds of accidental injuries happen in the bathtub or shower — which makes sense, because each can become slippery. But many injuries involve the toilet: standing up, sitting down, or using it. (Yes, about 9% of the total injuries were from overexertion.)

Overall, mishaps near the bathtub, shower, toilet and sink caused an estimated 234,094 nonfatal injuries in the U.S. in 2008 among people at least 15 years old, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported online Thursday in its weekly Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. And the injury rate rises with age.
