The Art Of Hiding Household Eyesores!

As you look around your house, you love everything you see - a welcoming living room, the pristine kitchen, a tidy bedroom and clean bathrooms. But as your eyes inspect each room a little closely you notice the old stained switchboards, the uneven patches of paint on the walls and your neat but visible laundry basket. 

Even though these may be small things they bug you nonetheless, with a little creativity, you can transform these eyesores into decor! 

Listed below are few fun tips for you

Customized Drawers for Laundry Hampers

Don’t display a hamper full of laundry in a room, especially if it’s too small and you hardly have the space. A gigantic laundry basket is just going to make your room look cluttered and unkempt. Take care of this problem by custom fitting a pull out laundry drawer into any of your shelves. Identify the best place for a drawer in your bathroom, bedroom or utility room.

Make Your Window AC Unit Disappear

Your old AC doesn't look as sleek as the newer, more stylish split ACs now available in the market. If it’s in perfect working order and doesn't warrant changing, you can do a lot around, over and in front of it. Get a handyman to make a wooden frame around it and custom make a sliding notice board in front of it. Every time you want to use the AC, the notice board will slide over giving you easy access to the AC controls. Not only does your AC disappear from sight but you also have place to stick your post its, to-do lists and other reminders!
