relaxation. Whether coming back home from a long day at work or just enjoying a
movie with a loved one, we want our bedrooms to be as welcoming as possible. As
the first and last room we see in the day, the feel of the space can leave a
bigger impact on our moods than we expect.
There are several easy transformations that a handyman in
Melbourne can take care of. These simple jobs can make a huge difference in the
overall presentation and feel of the bedroom.Headboard Building a custom headboard can make a big impact in an

When choosing to re-decorate or re-furnish our living
spaces, it can be hard to narrow down the best items to do so. Finding the
balance between style, function and affordability is crucial in our modern lives.
For Ikea furniture assemblers there’s a lot to look forward
to building in 2018. Ikea’s new catalogue has several amazing items that are
sure to spruce up any interior design. With colourful and stylish room concepts,
the catalogue is filled with items we know people will love to own.
Ikea Furniture Item #1: The NYMBODA
The NYBODA coffee table is one the first items to pop out in
the living room section of the catalogue. The table features a reversible top
that allows buyers to switch from black to beige, giving some flexibility to the
item. This allows for an easy switch if the rooms’ colour palette changes and
requires a differently toned centrepiece.
The slender design of the table equates to a beautiful
marriage of size and functionality. If more room... See more
Sydney means a busy lifestyle and we all end up with certain jobs we just don’t
have the time or know-how to complete ourselves. When updating or repairing the
furniture and fixtures around our homes, the physical work can prove a
frustrating ordeal for those not experienced with it.
If have overlooked getting a handyman in Sydney, there are a lot of potential
fumbles and disasters that could occur. These setbacks will cost you more time

A handy man can be very helpful around the office or house;
they can be especially useful with the small jobs that aren’t important enough
to do yourself, but still need to be completed. A great handy man can give you
a piece of mind so that you find someone who respects the tasks required as it
is their own.
Difficult jobs that require unique expertise and equipment to
complete the task sometimes need a professional. Let’s take a look at some of the jobs that
your local handy man can provide you with and what you jobs you can hire them
for. Minor plumbing work
Many handy men are capable of completing small plumbing work
such as replacing a leaky faucet or repairing faulty pipes. However when it
comes to the major projects that involve relocating plumbing within the house,
this requires a licensed plumber.
It is important that you call a professional regarding the
required plumbing tasks that need to be fixed prior to them coming. Most of the
time this shoul... See more
Hiring a handyman is certainly a lot simpler then trying to
tackle the job yourself. But before you jump in and hire the first handyman you
see, there are a few important things you should do. This will ensure that the
handyman you decide on is perfect for the job you have. As well as this, it
helps the process move along faster and you can get on with other more
important things in your life.
So let’s take a look
at the important things you need to do before hiring a local handyman:1. Make a List
It is important to make a list of every job you need
completed. Remember that some jobs just aren’t meant for a handyman and should
be tackled by a skilled professional who is trained (and qualified) in the area,
bathroom tiling for example would need a professional tiler who knows how to
When you have a clear understanding (and list) of all the
things you need done, the handyman will be able to determine whether or not

In a bedroom there must be a wardrobe. Where else would you
put all your clothes and store other items that you don’t want people to see
when they come into your room? Wardrobes can be in-built or stand-alone. If your room doesn’t have an in-built wardrobe, you will
have to spend some time looking for the perfect stand-alone to complement the
rest of your space. As well as this, you will probably have to find someone for
wardrobe assembly – especially if the wardrobe comes in a flat pack! When choosing the
best wardrobe for your space there are usually 4 components to look for:Wardrobe Decision Component #1: Style
Style is very important; you don’t want to have a mismatch
of items in your room. The theme of your room should be continued in the
wardrobe that you choose. If you are unsure of what style to choose it is
probably best to play it safe.
Stick to simple designs and neutral colours, that way you
can’t go wrong. You can always accessorise your room with... See more
At AssembleBay we think that flat pack furniture is
fantastic – it’s mobile, durable, and cheap – but some people don’t want to buy
it because they think that it doesn’t look so crash hot. If you’re one of those people,
then you’re in luck, because here are some great ways to dress up your flat
Many people make their dining table the centrepiece of their living/dining
room, so it’s no surprise that a nice looking table will set you back quite a
bit! However, given that you need to use a tablecloth to protect a fine table
anyway, why not just invest in a few nice tablecloths and use them all the time
on a flat pack table?
If the table is always covered by a nice cloth, no one will
be able to tell whether it’s from IKEA or an antique shop anyway – and you’ll
always look ready to host a nice dinner. Add a decorative vase with some
colourful flowers in the middle of the table to make it look extra nice.

Flat pack furniture is becoming more and more common for
people to buy, and you can now buy it in numerous stores. Some people love it
and some hate it, but how do you decide if flat pack furniture is right for you
and your home? Here are three pros and cons of flat pack furniture.
Pros of Flat Pack Furniture
1. Price Flat pack is typically cheaper than fully built furniture, largely
because it is easier to produce and transport. At Kmart, for example, you will
be able to find flat pack items like coffee tables and TV stands for less than
$50! Even at the more expensive (and higher quality) IKEA, a little money will
go a long way.
2. Mobility As touched on above, flat pack furniture is
very easy to transport. Rather than needing to be careful as you drive your new
pieces home, flat pack furniture will stack neatly in your car and you won’t
have to worry about it falling apart.
Additionally, your furniture can be taken apart and
reassembled if you want to... See more
Handymen are helpful, hence the
“handy” part! No matter the type of task you need completed, they certainly
have the skills and knowledge necessary to ensure everything is completed
properly, the first time.
Because of the skills they
possess, there are a number of reasons why individuals choose to hire a
professional instead of tackling the job themselves. If you are thinking about
hiring someone to complete your tasks, have
a look below at some of the best reasons why hiring a handyman is so popular:
This is a big one, and it is the
most obvious. People these days are very time poor and when we do eventually
have a spare minute to catch our breath, we do not want to be spending that
time on small tasks. This is when handymen come in. They will complete all the little
jobs you need done while you can spend your time on more important things. As
well as this, a professional will also have the ability to complete the task in
a shorter amount of time than y... See more
When you’re young and first move out of home, one of the
jobs on your list to make your new place liveable is to furnish it. Whether you
are in a share house, moving in with a partner or living on your own, you will
need tables (both dining and coffee), chairs, a bed and numerous other items –
and buying it all flat packed is the best way to go!
You will probably move house several times in the years
after you first leave the family home, so the first reason why flat pack
furniture is a good idea right now is the mobility factor. You can take all
your furniture apart and put it back together again (or get someone to help you
to do it) every time you move!
The advantage of furniture from stores like IKEA (or, if
you’re a broke student, Kmart) is that it is easy to put it together and take
it apart again (in theory). If you want to transport your table, for example,
you can take the legs off it to make it fit in a car more easily.
This means that you will be able to m... See more
