Home-Improvement-Gift-Suggestions-for-Mothers

If your haven’t come up with a brilliant idea for your mom yet for Mother’s Day, keep calm and know that you are not the only person dealing with this problem. Everyone is now experiencing that slight anxiety for not knowing what actually pleases moms as their big day awaits.

You are now practically thinking of giving your mom a body spa GC or a make-over package from her favorite salon. Yes, those ideas could work, but if you’re still a little hesitant, you can go safe by hitting her weakness – home improvement.

Re-coloring of interior

Sweep her off her feet with an outdoor or indoor repainting opportunity – your treat of course. See your mom giggle again like teenagers do. When it comes to home improvement projects, moms would love to take the lead. Instead of surprising her with a newly painted living room or house façade, let her pick the colors. It may take a lot of work for her, but it’s the whole home improvement process that makes the idea a lot more enjoyable. Give her this moment!

Window treatment packages

This next suggestion is more on interior design – still home improvement related though. Take your mom to a world of fancy draperies and blinds and let her maternal instincts, combined with artistic instincts, do the talking in transforming the look of the room you are targeting to revamp. Giving windows a different touch will do a lot of changes in a room. You can shop together and discuss about your preferences in curtains, shutters, shades, etc. Take each other’s suggestions into consideration and bond once again just like in the good ole days.

Repair labor coupons

Any cabinets, doors, windows and gutters in the house that need repair? Your mom surely can’t handle fixing all of them. It doesn’t really matter whether she is supermom or not. What matters is she needs to take a break on Mother’s Day, to just sit back and relax and worry less about home improvement hassles. You ought to give her that.

Bouquet of flowers

But of course, aside from anything related to home improvement, nothing beats the proven and tested, classic gesture of love and appreciation – a bouquet of flowers. That accompanied with a simple dinner. Nothing beats quality time of catching up and meaningful conversations at your favorite restaurant.

In that case, you may join Vinyl-Lite Window Factory and Showroom’s I LOVE MY MOM: #Throwback Photo Contest for a chance to win an Outback Steakhouse gift card worth $100. Click here to enter.

5 Things You’re Missing Out for Not Having Storm Doors

5ThingsYou’reMissingOutforNotHavingStormDoors-01

There’s something about home improvement that initially makes a person think of window installations, door replacements, roofing and siding services and skylight furnishings among many. For most homeowners, this is how transformation at home truly begins. However, there is one thing about transforming a home into its greater version that is often underrated and ignored. What is it? A storm door.

Although it is technically classified under the door category, a storm door still lags behind the main grouping. It has always lived in the shadows of a house’s main entryway anyway. No wonder. But it’s time you know how a storm door actually works for your humble abode. You’ll be surprised.

Security

On top of everything, a storm door allows additional barrier for your home against unwanted visitors and burglars. With its locking mechanism, you are given ample time to screen your guests before letting them inside. This would even be of much purpose in the absence of a peep hole on the main door.

Energy Efficiency

A storm door is believed to be of its finest state during cold seasons like fall and winter. Contrary to that misconception, however, a storm door is able to withstand any season and function in high quality all the same. The promise of energy-efficiency lasts all year round. Closed storm doors actually disallow exterior air to mix with interior air. Not only that! Its light-saving feature that lets in natural light to enter your house without actually opening the main door allows you to save more than you can imagine.

Aesthetics

What most people should bear in mind is that storm doors have a variety of designs. They come in many shapes and colors that you need not worry about making your house lose a little of its freedom (as it is in itself an additional covering) or making it a little less fun. Your aesthetic preference matters.

Versatility

It’s not right to believe that storm doors only entertain specific homeowner demographics. Yes, storm door installation may be a little costly but the cost you spend is almost like a proactive move to delay the damages (caused by time and environmental constraints) in your home. Moreover, storm doors can fit to any entryway no matter what the frames are made of. A storm door is always a perfect fit for the lovely entrance of your house.

Protection

As mentioned in the preceding paragraph, a storm door can delay the damages of your home, specifically the parts that it covers. It would include the main door, the frame, the floor near the opening and others as it protects those areas from harsh weathers. That’s the very reason why a storm door is considered a smart investment for home improvement.

There are still so many things to learn about home improvement aside from storm doors. You just have to keep your mind open all the time. Changes (including change of ideas) are not necessarily threats; they are opportunities to be used and taken advantage of.

4 Ways to Enjoy Easter

- by to Social Media Promo.

Spring has officially begun and as you plan ahead to organize the activities in your calendar, you surely can’t skip the day of Easter. You do not necessarily have to join the kids to hunt for Easter eggs; you can find something better than that. Regardless of age, there’s got to be an activity that suits the demographics you are classified in. Besides, you don’t have to enjoy just one day alone. It could be a series of activities and you can get started with our suggestions.

Make an Easter wreath with your kids

When was the last time you had an actual activity with your kids? And no, I don’t mean eating together or watching a SNL together. I mean doing something that you do not usually do. If you can’t remember when and what, then it’s time you initiate on this creative project. Create an Easter wreath. The young ones will surely be excited! It’s not as difficult as it sounds; you just have to know the basics. By the time it’s done, you can easily hang it on your front door. A rare testament of time well spent.

Start a landscaping project

If you plan on organizing a mini Easter-hunt in your own yard, you have got to tidy it up. Well, not entirely, because you’ll have a difficult time hiding the eggs, but just enough to ensure the safety of the kids who will participate. If possible, you may repaint the fences to match them with the anticipated colorful and eventful day of Easter.

Check out doors and windows

Now, how is this Easter-related? It actually depends on your planned activities. Aside from celebrating it the traditional way, some choose to put up a house shindig – solely for adults, of course – with drinks and DJs included. Make sure your doors and windows function as new. Hospitality is expandable to the said parts of your home.

Participate in our #EnjoyEaster Sweepstakes

Well, it is mainly part of our social media campaign in Facebook that requires people to follow very simple steps to join. Firstly, you must be a fan of our page. Visit our page to learn more.
