Decorating With Mirror Frames: Using Big, Bold Mirrors As Artwork

On this blog, we’ve talked about decorating with mirrors once or twice in the past. After all, mirrors are great for enhancing light, make small spaces seem bigger, and take some of the stress out of trying to find perfectly matching wall art. But while mirrors are often great because they blend in, you can […]

Eclectic Style: Making Your Home Reflect You

Eclectic style is often misunderstood and underrepresented. To some, there’s a method to the madness; to others, it’s just madness. It can be difficult to pin down as a style, partially because there is no singular furniture type to its name. It takes from modern and traditional, farmhouse and avant-garde, minimalism and maximalism all at […]

Get The Look: Dressing Up A Modular Makeup Vanity

Modular, makeup-table style bathroom vanities have become one of the hottest options for master bathrooms over the last few years, and for a good reason. They’re easy to install, customizable in terms of size, style, and layout, and give you more functionality than you’d get from an oversized double vanity. That said, they won’t always […]

Bring the Cafe Atmosphere Home with Bistro Tables

Kitchen islands and big dining tables have become the heart of many homes, and are great gathering spaces for the family. But doing absolutely everything around your dining table can start to feel exhausting. After all, not every conversation or meal is a formal, sit-down event – let alone an entire-household affair complete with multiple […]

Protect and Show Off Your Laundry Room with Laundry Room Tile

There are two kinds of laundry rooms: ones you hide in your basement, and ones you photograph for magazines. In an ideal world, we would all have the latter. But creating a dream laundry room can be a major undertaking. That said, tile can make a big difference. A well-picked laundry room tile can brighten […]

Don’t Set Aside Your Side Table: Using Your Accent Pieces Well

It takes a surprising number of tables to decorate a whole house. But while certain types of tables are very distinct – like dining tables – the language we use to talk about them can get a little muddied. The terms “side tables” and “end tables” in particular are often used interchangeably, but they aren’t […]

Vessel Sinks: Is It Time for a Comeback or are They Gone for Good?

In 2018, we at HomeThangs said vessel sinks were a fast-fading trend. I think it’s been long enough to reevaluate that statement as we start to see vessel sinks reappear in blueprints for bathroom renovations. Why were they so beloved and then so suddenly scorned? Were they ill-conceived designs, or just a victim of moving […]

Best Kitchen Nightlights: Keeping Your Kitchen Open After Dark

I’ve talked a lot in the past about strategies for layering and improving your kitchen lighting. Good all-over lighting is the foundation of good design, and (literally) puts your home in its best light. But what about when you need to use your kitchen after-hours? Late at night or early in the morning, the last […]

Bathroom Lighting That Wows: Replacing Over-Vanity Lights With Sconces

When you think of bathroom lighting, you probably imagine one thing: a bar of lights above the vanity. But while there’s nothing wrong with these familiar glass-shaded lights (and some newer ones can even be quite attractive), it’s a crime to think they’re the only option. Any light can be a bathroom light if you’re […]

Ditch The Chandelier: Better Dining Room Lighting For An Open Floorplan

Chandeliers are the most traditional choice for lighting a dining room. But these days, dining rooms are a far cry from traditional. At-home dining in general has a more casual feel than it did in the past. Now, cooking, eating, and socializing all happen in the same space. Add to that the fact that many […]
