Jazz up that staircase!

Something that most people overlook, the staircase in your house is something that you might take for granted, but it is a very eye-catching structure within the home. Leaving it plain and simple would be a waste of valuable creative space where you can showcase a bold architectural statement.

Choose from flat panel wainscoting designs to fit the theme you desire. You do not need to do too much to have a distinctive staircase. For a simple makeover, you can do either one or more of these steps: replace the newel post, change the handrail, get new balusters, and change the threads. With just a bit more money and time, you can install wainscoting to the sides of your staircase and instantly have a cool new look!

Affordable, flexible, and takes almost no time to install, crown moldings are one of the best solutions to add bold decorative statements without altering the structures of your home. Head over to your local hardware store now for this instant solution that comes in a variety of style. You can opt for a glamorously ornamental and complicated design for a large room to make your guests awe-struck. If you have a small space, then go for simple clean-line designs to get that uncluttered contemporary look.

Apply them anywhere you like – the ceiling, the walls or even to the sides of your furniture. You can even paint the moldings a contrasting color to add drama to the space. The styles and designs possible are limitless, just let your imagination run free!

Create a focal point with a feature wall

Plain drywalls are so boring and out of style. On the other hand, having decorations on all your walls is a huge no-no in the world of interior design because your room will look messy and cluttered. Instead, the solution is to add just one focal point in the room in the form of a feature wall. First, choose a wall that you would like to decorate and leave the other walls plain and simple. Then, let your creative juices flow! You can display an impressive and large piece of artwork to make the space look magnificent, or hang up many small framed art pieces in a grid for something interesting.

If you want to be more elaborate, why not add a floor to ceiling wainscoting to your feature wall? You will immediately add texture and structural drama to the interior appearance of the room. You can choose from many different styles like bead board wainscotting for country charm or flat panel wainscoting for a modern look.

Upgrade your doors

Being the entrance and the first thing you see before entering a room, doors often set the first impression of the room you are about to enter. Thus, it is important to keep your doors looking fresh and welcoming. Sometimes, just a simple coat of paint will suffice, but how interesting can that be? Why not head over to flea markets, secondhand stores, and hardware stores to look for doors with textures that will pique interests and catch people’s eyes? Simply swapping in an outstanding looking door will add a whole lot of style to the space. Just try it!

With simple but great ideas, you can add architectural flairs to your home at an affordable price and in almost no time at all. Sometimes, small ideas can create big changes. You just need to find the right ideas for your home!

The Kabbalah Centre Helps Seekers to Find Answers for a Better Life

The majority of people walk through lives believing that they know a lot. This is especially true in the modern day “Information Age” that we all live in today. However, believing we know more than we do can often lead to troubles in life. The practice of Kabbalah reveals that we are really only open to a small fraction of what the world has to offer at any given point in time. Whether some people want to admit this is true or not, the fact remains that it truly is. Kabbalah practitioners are able to get in touch with the true wisdom of the Universe, while filtering out all of the unnecessary information that can cloud our perceptions so easily.

As much as people try to be “multi-taskers” these days, we all know that when we try to focus our energy and attention on too many things that we simply become less effective and less centered. Of all the thoughts and information that flow through our minds on any given day, only a small amount of those things actually stay with us or provide benefit. The ancient texts of Kabbalah offer teachings that help people to focus on what is important. When a person is able to do this regularly, there are no limits to what they can achieve, both spiritually and in the physical world.

The question then is not how can we learn more, but how can we learn what is truly important to know. The Kabbalah Centre has been helping people to answer this question for decades. Located in Los Angeles, California, the Kabbalah Centre is recognized as a place where people can go to get the best teaching and guidance in the ways of Kabbalah, while establishing relationships with a community of likeminded human beings.

The Kabbalah Centre is not open to just one religious group, creed or color. This community is focused on providing affirmation and guidance to everyone who is seeking a closer relationship with the Creator and their fellow human beings. Contrary to teachers of Kabbalah in days gone by, the team at the Kabbalah Centre offers teaching and support to people from all walks of life. It is no wonder, then, that so many people choose to visit the Centre when they are seeking answers to some of life’s most pressing and important questions.

Tech in Cars in This Must Read

Recently, news broke that a second crash of a Tesla car was being probed in the United States. It is not likely, though, that any of the advanced technologies in Tesla’s cars, including its Autopilot, was involved in the crash involving the second Tesla. However, it does provide more negative publicity and perhaps false credence to the idea that tech in cars is a bad thing.

Let me say that for people who drive or drive long ways to work, haul big loads as part of their job, or need to get far distances in a quick and reasonable amount of time, it makes sense to have a car, and it makes sense to have a car that is as technologically capable as possible. Plus, it’s really cool. It’s great that some cars can parallel park themselves now, or have an engine that turns on simply by the car connecting to a key fob. That kind of technology is great.

At the risk of sounding like a hippy, I’d like to advocate for your own two feet and bikes as a form of transportation for short rides, leisurely jaunts, or tasks and chores you are able to do. Not everyone has the ability to walk or bike, and that’s a reasonable point, but if you have the ability to, why not give the super cool and super useful high-tech car a break and get to back to basics in how you get around town.
