Construction and Contractors: All in a Day's Work

Can you imagine being a contractor? You start you morning by picking up supplies at the local building store. You drop off those supplies at one job site, and then you drive to another job site where you spend four hours mudding drywall. As that dries, you make calls to some of your suppliers, and then you meet with a client about a new job across town. As evening rolls in, you drive back to the other construction site and sand down some of that drywall. If this sound like a fun day to you, then you've stumbled on the right blog! This is a blog about construction, and you'll fit right in.


How To Make A Tiny Home Comfortable And Attractive

If you're like many people these days, your thoughts sometimes linger on imagining what life would be like if you moved into a tiny home. Tiny homes have a lot of advantages, including being more cost-effective and having a smaller environmental footprint than their traditional counterparts. If you have the travel bug, you probably like the idea of living in a tiny home that's built on wheels, which would allow it to be easily transported and moved to different locations. But you may also be wondering how to make a tiny home comfortable as well as attractive without constantly feeling cramped. Here's what you can do:

Keep It Simple

Less is often more when it comes to tiny home decor. Choose a few key pieces and stick to a minimal color palette to avoid clutter.

Choose Furniture Wisely

Look for pieces that are multi-functional, like a coffee table with storage or a couch that converts into a bed.

Use Area Rugs

Area rugs can help define different areas in your tiny home and add warmth and color to the space.

Hang Plants

Hanging plants can add a touch of greenery to your tiny home and make use of empty wall space. Look for lightweight, low-maintenance plants that are suitable for hanging baskets or wall planters.

Install Overhead Storage

If your tiny home has a high ceiling, consider installing overhead storage solutions like hanging baskets or racks. These can be a great way to store items that you don't use frequently, like seasonal decorations or extra linens.

Utilize Wall-Mounted Storage

Wall-mounted storage solutions, such as hanging baskets, shelves, and hooks, can help you make use of empty wall space. These types of storage solutions are especially useful in small spaces because they don't take up any floor space.

Don't Forget About Lighting

Good lighting is crucial in a tiny home, as it can help to create a sense of spaciousness and make the space feel more welcoming. Consider adding a mix of task lighting, ambient lighting, and accent lighting to brighten up your tiny home.

Let in Natural Light

If possible, make the most of natural light by opening windows and using light-colored curtains or blinds. Some tiny homes are even equipped with skylights.

Take Advantage of Outdoor Areas

If you have a small outdoor area, consider using it as additional living space by setting up a patio or creating an outdoor living room. Adjustable awnings are available for protection from the elements.
