Creating an “Entertainment Pad”
Your basement can be a fun and creative space and doesn’t have to be representative of the rest of the house. Halina breaks down all of the elements that make up a great games room.
- Have a table that does triple duty: arts and crafts, games table, wrapping station
- Add a fun chalkboard wall
- Built-ins are great for packing away all the stuff you don’t want to look at!
- A great bar, or a bar cart makes serving drinks easy and chic
- Engineered flooring is great for underfloor heating
- Vinyl plank flooring can’t be heated, but is super easy to install
A growing number of homeowners are renting out all or a portion of their homes to travel or even quit their jobs to do so. Its part of a growing trend called “the share economy” and its here to stay. Interior designer, Melissa Davis discusses how you can prepare your house to do the same and maximize your retail potential.
How will you differentiate yourself from the competition?
The competition includes other homes, but also hotels. Think about if you owned a hotel room – what would you like in that room if you were a guest?
Top must-haves to be the ultimate host!
A local guide book you made yourself is both thoughtful and helpful. Include: a map book of restaurants, drycleaners, favourtite shops and stores, where to take the family, or where to go for date night.
