Sometimes, it’s the really small touches that make the difference in a home’s decor. This is very apparent to me when I walk into a bathroom and admire the lovely toilet flush levers that some bathrooms have. Yes, you may think it is a sad day when someone is admiring toilet levers, but then again, I am a stickler for the details. Of course, I never notice the plain levers. For some reason, my eyes just never settle on them unless they are nice. However, when I do notice them, it really solidifies that impression of quality and high-end finishes. So, if you have ever wondered how to upgrade toilet flush levers, this is for you.

I am ashamed to say that I neglected my own doors for the past few years and was faced with this same situation. But, not to worry, I was able to get them looking like new with just a little bit of time and effort. If you want to know how to refinish wooden doors, just keep reading.
If you have ever needed or wanted to take off your door handleset, you probably have noticed that they are a bit more complex than a standard door knob. For one, there is usually no noticeable screws. So, how are you suppose to get the darn thing off?!?! Well, it’s not as complicated as it appears, and I can show you how to remove door handlesets using just a few common household tools.
Floating laminate flooring can be the solution to many flooring issues. It is versatile, easy to install, looks good, and can go in many areas where real wood shouldn’t.
