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.

Clean Up Your Kitchen Visually with These 5 Life Hacks

Like we’ve gone over before, actually saving space in your kitchen through efficient storage isn’t the same thing as making it look that way.

A Quick Guide To Vanity Paint Colors: Choosing A Look To Last

Replacing a bathroom vanity is one of the biggest renovation projects you’ll face as a homeowner.

Whatever vanity you choose will be with you for […]

Make Your Own Maker Space: How To Craft Your New Craft Room

Get The Look: Using A Limited Palette To Get A Professional Interior

If you’re planning on redecorating, chances are you’ve spent a good amount of time browsing, scrolling, and flipping through pictures of all sorts of interiors to find the right look. But as easy as it is to find magazine-worthy rooms you love, it’s often quite hard to replicate them on your own. A good eye […]

Don’t Lose Sleep Over It: Six Ways To Put A Home Office In Any Bedroom

I’ve spent a good chunk of the last year helping people figure out where to put a home office when they don’t have a spare room to dedicate to one. Often the most available and effective spot to do it is right in your own bedroom. Why? Bedrooms are quiet, with doors that close for […]

Refreshing Your Bedroom for Spring (And Beyond)

As I’ve talked about in a previous post, spring cleaning can be a lot to attempt at once. Taking it room by room is better, but you may not know where to start every time. I find that for the bedroom, things you need to clean can even blend into the background as having “always […]
