After spending a brutal winter indoors, it is amazing how much clutter has accumulated in our homes.

Before attacking heavy-duty tasks like scrubbing baseboards, washing windows, and airing out curtains, it is important to purge your home of unwanted objects and materials.
Here are tried-and-true methods for streamlining what may seem like an overwhelming task:

Since the floor is usually the largest surface in the room—apart from the ceiling—it has a major impact on the appearance of the rest of the room. If you plan to redecorate an entire room, the floor is the place to lay the foundation for color and style. Al ...

By Monica Guhde
Owner, Guhde Flooring America
We all love the look of a gleaming hardwood floor, but what we cannot see underneath it is just as important. If you are planning to install hardwood flooring in your home, you need to understand the anatomy of a floor before you start the installation.
To prevent squeaky floors, you need to make sure the joists are properly installed. Joists are cross beams that frame the floor, either sitting atop the foundation of the house or holding up the upstairs floors. They provide the structural support of a floor so it will be stable and secure. Ideally, you want the joists to run perpendicular to the flooring. If the flooring must run paral ...

Thawing & Preventing Frozen Pipes

Categories: Home Technology, Kitchen & Bath

As temperatures plummet, the water inside a home’s pipes are at a greater risk of freezing. If your pipes are already blocked with ice, there are steps you can take to fix the problem and prevent it from happening in the future.

If you turn a faucet and you’re not greeted with the familiar stream of water, you’ve probably got a blockage. Water has frozen and created a wall of slushy ice that’s preventing new water from reaching the tap. This is bad news because it means you can’t get a drink and yo ...

Cabinets & Granite Direct has been providing Northeast Ohio homes with quality granite for their kitchens and bathrooms for a decade. But just because their showroom is geared toward the homeowner, doesn’t mean they can’t handle the big jobs.

Cabinets & Granite impressed Kyle, the General Manager at Shinto, so much that he invited them into his own home.
