Here, we&#8217;ll talk a little bit about Honeywell and the features they offer before delving into detailed product reviews of 7 of the best Honeywell heaters out there.&nbsp;</p> <h2><strong>What Makes Honeywell Space Heaters Great?&nbsp;</strong></h2> <p>Headquartered in the United States, Honeywell was founded 113 years ago and crafts a range of household and commercial products. The company prides itself on building technologies with a strong focus on innovation. Either than heaters, the company also sells a range of other products from ceiling fans to <a href="https://www.homedit.com/best-portable-air-conditioner/">air conditioners</a>, thermostats, humidifiers, and <a href="https://www.homedit.com/best-quietest-dehumidifiers/">dehumidifiers</a>.&nbsp;</p> <p>In terms of heaters, Honeywell has some of the best space heaters out there in the market as the company combines mobility and efficiency for a stellar portable product that&#8217;s an ideal solution to heating up nearly any home or work setting. When it comes to a space heater, safety is crucial, and Honeywell&#8217;s already got that covered with their extensive range of features.&nbsp;</p> <h2>Honeywell heater Features to Look For</h2> <ul> <li><strong>Tip-over protection.</strong> This means that if the space heater is accidentally knocked over, the system will automatically shut down. This is an essential feature as tip-over protection helps prevent devastating scenarios such as fires from occurring.&nbsp;</li> <li><strong>Overheating prevention.</strong> If any of the Honeywell space heater&#8217;s internal components end up exceeding a temperature that&#8217;s deemed safe, the unit will automatically shut down.

With Honeywell, you won&#8217;t run into this issue as the heater will remain cool to the touch – even when it has been switched on for a while.&nbsp;</li> <li><strong>Wiring that&#8217;s thermally insulated.</strong> With thermally insulated wires, they&#8217;re separated from the rest of the heater&#8217;s internal components and won&#8217;t overheat and reach high temperatures that could be dangerous.&nbsp;</li> </ul> <h2>Top 6 of the Best Honeywell Heaters</h2> <h3 class="product"><a href="https://www.anrdoezrs.net/links/8479602/type/dlg/https://www.wayfair.com/home-improvement/pdp/honeywell-myenergysmart-1500-watt-electric-infrared-compact-heater-yov1095.html"rel="nofollow">MyEnergySmart® 1,500 Watt Electric Infrared Compact Heater</a></h3> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/honeywell-heater/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-516206" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/MyEnergySmart®-1500-Watt-Electric-Infrared-Compact-Heater.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="800" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/MyEnergySmart®-1500-Watt-Electric-Infrared-Compact-Heater.jpg 800w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/MyEnergySmart®-1500-Watt-Electric-Infrared-Compact-Heater-300x300.jpg 300w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/MyEnergySmart®-1500-Watt-Electric-Infrared-Compact-Heater-150x150.jpg 150w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/MyEnergySmart®-1500-Watt-Electric-Infrared-Compact-Heater-768x768.jpg 768w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/MyEnergySmart®-1500-Watt-Electric-Infrared-Compact-Heater-245x245.jpg 245w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/MyEnergySmart®-1500-Watt-Electric-Infrared-Compact-Heater-275x275.jpg 275w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></a></p> <p>This <a href="https://www.anrdoezrs.net/links/8479602/type/dlg/https://www.wayfair.com/home-improvement/pdp/honeywell-myenergysmart-1500-watt-electric-infrared-compact-heater-yov1095.html"rel="nofollow"><strong>is a fantastic heater</strong> </a>that comes with all of the features that you could possibly need.

For this reason, seeing a skyscraper that’s alive with plants and trees seems both futuristic and surreally inviting. Wouldn’t it be amazing to have your own Eden in the air? It’s a fantasy that’s fueled such projects as Stefano Boeri’s <a href="https://www.stefanoboeriarchitetti.net/en/project/vertical-forest/">Bosco Verticale</a> and <a href="https://www.travelandleisure.com/trip-ideas/green-travel/skyscraper-forest-city-china#:~:text=Architects%20Propose%20a%20City%20of%20Skyscrapers%20Covered%20in%20Trees%20to%20Clean%20the%20Air,-By%20Cailey%20Rizzo&amp;text=Nanjing%20Green%20Towers%20in%20Nanjing%2C%20China.&amp;text=For%20anyone%20who%20considers%20themselves,system%20of%20skyscrapers%20in%20trees.">Nanjing Green Towers</a>, Koichi Takada’s <a href="https://www.dezeen.com/2020/09/16/urban-forest-koichi-takada-architects-plants-high-rise/">Urban Forest</a>, and <a href="https://www.designboom.com/architecture/vincent-callebaut-architectures-agora-tower-taipei-taiwan/">dozens</a> of <a href="http://www.i-mad.com/press/mad-architects-reveals-first-residential-project-in-us/">other</a> <a href="https://inhabitat.com/mad-architects-unveil-futuristic-cloud-corridor-skyscrapers-for-los-angeles/">verdant</a> architectural concepts. This week, <a href="https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2016/09/londons-urban-designer-turns-his-eye-to-new-york.html">Thomas Heatherwick</a>, the man behind the <a href="https://ny.curbed.com/2019/3/15/18267713/hudson-yards-vessel-thomas-heatherwick-photos">Vessel</a>, unveiled a <a href="https://www.dezeen.com/2020/09/18/eden-skyscraper-singapore-heatherwick-studio-plant-balconies/">design</a> for one in Singapore that’s literally named Eden. It seems like an urban paradise, but this cautionary tale from Chengdu — the capital of the Western Chinese province of Sichuan — may temper our excitement.</p> <p id="KExhq4"><a href="https://www.theguardian.com/cities/2019/feb/04/if-we-have-to-leave-we-leave-the-downside-of-life-in-chinas-park-city">Chengdu has made it a mission</a> to become a garden city of sorts. The Qiyi City Forest Garden — an eight-tower housing development — was billed as an “eco paradise.” Each of the 826 units (which have all sold) has its own plant-filled balcony that looks like an overgrown back yard in the sky. But here’s the catch: mosquitoes, and lots of them. They love the gardens — and they also love sucking the blood of people who live in them. The infestation is so bad that fewer than a dozen families have moved in. </p> <p id="FpkmeQ">So, is this a good idea gone wrong? Or was is just poorly thought out to begin with? To answer some of our questions, we talked to Daryl Beyers, a landscape architect with over 20 years of experience, an instructor at the New York Botanical Garden, and the author of <a href="https://www.amazon.com/New-Gardeners-Handbook-Everything-Beautiful/dp/1604698748?tag=curbed-20" rel="sponsored nofollow noopener" target="_blank"><em>The New Gardener’s Handboook</em></a><em>. </em>Beyers has also designed a number of rooftop and terrace gardens across NYC, and, according to him, the short of it is: It’s not an inherently terrible idea, but it has to be done right.</p> <p id="xXh83P">“Just because it looks cool, absorbs CO2, is a noise buffer, and offers <a href="https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/cravings/201909/11-ways-plants-enhance-your-mental-and-emotional-health">psychological benefits</a>, doesn’t mean you don’t have to do it properly,” Beyers says. “And I think [the developers] rushed into it. They didn’t think about the maintenance.”</p> <p id="N9b5kb">The problem in Chengdu is partly a result of bad design, but mostly a clear case of neglect. “You can’t have a garden without a gardener,” Beyers says. “They [developers] were touting it as a manicured garden outside on your deck. If it’s manicured, someone has to do the manicuring.”</p> <p id="ntSg8r">Mosquitoes love water, and Chengdu’s humid climate and months-long monsoon seasons offer plenty of it. Beyers, who looked at images and video of the Qiyi City Forest Garden, believes that the plants are growing in containers on the balconies, which are collecting water. The balconies themselves likely don’t have proper drainage, which means the water is pooling and standing stagnant. Meanwhile, the plants themselves, which were chosen for their noise-reducing and pollution-absorbing traits, are overgrown — providing lots of shade for the mosquitoes to thrive in. </p> <p id="nwBIbG">A better way to do it, according to Beyers, would be to pick dwarf plants that won’t grow and become overgrown so quickly. Better yet: allow the residents to pick the plants they want to grow. One site advertising Qiyi City mentioned that the developers will send gardeners four times a year to tend to the gardens, but even that’s not enough; Beyers says once a week is more realistic.</p> <p id="IeAssU">Compared to Qiyi City, Bosco Verticale in Milan has been a success story, both as the poster child for vertical forests and for the people who live there. A <a href="https://www.worldgbc.org/news-media/bosco-verticale-not-easy-being-green">recent report from the World Green Building Council</a> found that residents really love it there. In that case, the architects worked closely with an architectural botanist named Laura Gatti to make sure the plant palette — over 500 medium-size and large trees, 300 small trees, 5,000 shrubs, and 11,000 plants — would grow well and look good. </p> <p id="oy8x6w">If the architect, landscape designer, and horticulturists listen to one another (and the gardens are actively tended to), the plantings can be successful. Beyers suspects that didn’t happen in Chengdu. </p> <p id="KJpvWc">“It is sort of apocalyptic, and that’s what nature will do to all our cities if everything goes to hell,” he says. “You see it in the movies. Plants will do those things.”</p> <aside id="0lcUcX"><div data-anthem-component="newsletter" data-anthem-component-data='{"slug":"curbed_national"}'></div></aside> The 10 Places You Should Look First for Great Gifts, No Matter the Occasion https://www.apartmenttherapy.com/where-to-buy-gifts-36819689?utm_source=RSS&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Category%2FChannel%3A+main Apartment Therapy | Saving the world, one room at a time urn:uuid:84a403ee-b2d0-08a5-0fab-4bf5c5f78786 Fri, 18 Sep 2020 14:30:07 +0000 <img src="https://cdn.apartmenttherapy.info/image/upload/f_auto,q_auto:eco,c_fill,g_auto,w_660/stock/shutterstock_510763483ed"> Whether you're shopping for a birthday, a holiday, or just because. <a href="https://www.apartmenttherapy.com/where-to-buy-gifts-36819689?utm_source=RSS&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Category%2FChannel%3A+main"><strong>READ MORE...</strong></a> A Virtual Home Stager Answers All Your Questions About Digital Furniture https://www.apartmenttherapy.com/virtual-home-staging-questions-36818709?utm_source=RSS&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Category%2FChannel%3A+main Apartment Therapy | Saving the world, one room at a time urn:uuid:897bb6ea-99ea-9b63-37c3-626adad932c9 Fri, 18 Sep 2020 14:00:07 +0000 <img src="https://cdn.apartmenttherapy.info/image/upload/f_auto,q_auto:eco,c_fill,g_auto,w_660/at/real-estate/432_Park_Ave_80A_DR_LR2_LOW_RES_Virtual_Staging"> She thinks physical home staging will soon be a thing of the past. <a href="https://www.apartmenttherapy.com/virtual-home-staging-questions-36818709?utm_source=RSS&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Category%2FChannel%3A+main"><strong>READ MORE...</strong></a> Contemporary Townhouse Added To 1880s Duplex Restoration https://www.digsdigs.com/contemporary-townhouse-duplex/ DigsDigs urn:uuid:28b0522c-587d-36a6-0135-8bccef79f571 Fri, 18 Sep 2020 13:27:50 +0000 <p>Architect Guillaume Lévesque has converted an 1880s duplex in Montreal, Canada, into two apartments while adding a contemporary townhouse at the back of the existing building.

Today we’re going to take a side-by-side look at the <a href="https://www.homedit.com/different-mattress-sizes/">most popular mattress size</a> in America versus one of the least popular ones. Without further ado, here is the battle between the <strong>Olympic Queen and the Queen-sized bed.</strong></p> <h2><strong>All About the Olympic Queen Bed</strong></h2> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/olympic-queen-vs-regular-queen/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-516284" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Mattress-Size-Infographic-Queen-XL.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="800" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Mattress-Size-Infographic-Queen-XL.jpg 800w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Mattress-Size-Infographic-Queen-XL-300x300.jpg 300w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Mattress-Size-Infographic-Queen-XL-150x150.jpg 150w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Mattress-Size-Infographic-Queen-XL-768x768.jpg 768w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Mattress-Size-Infographic-Queen-XL-245x245.jpg 245w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Mattress-Size-Infographic-Queen-XL-275x275.jpg 275w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></a></p> <p>If you haven’t heard about beds available in an <strong>Olympic Queen size</strong>, that’s because it’s not a choice that popular. In fact, buying Olympic Queen mattresses can be rather tough because they are difficult to find.</p> <h3><strong>Size</strong></h3> <p>One of the main differences between the Olympic Queen and the Queen mattress is the size. The former is a bed size situated between the Queen and the King sizes, measuring 66 by 80 inches. Being 6 inches wider compared to its smaller counterpart, it can offer more movement space for couples and is actually on the most popular mattresses sizes for RV with big beds.</p> <blockquote><p>Related: <a href="https://www.homedit.com/twin-vs-full-mattress/"><strong>Twin VS Full Mattress – What’s the Difference?</strong></a></p></blockquote> <h3><strong>Who’s It For?</strong></h3> <p>Before you venture off thinking that <strong>you need an Olympic Queen mattress</strong>, let’s determine first who is better off sleeping on such a bed:</p> <ul> <li>Because it is difficult to find, Olympic Queen mattresses aren’t for people who want to buy the first mattress they see, but instead are willing to do a little bit of research to find a mattress in this size option.</li> <li>If you’re sharing you bed with a partner and you ever felt cramped because there’s wasn’t enough wiggle room, the Olympic Queen mattress might be the right choice for you. While it may not seem like much, those 6 inches extra in width will make a difference.</li> <li>The fact that the Olympic Queen mattress isn’t that expensive compared to a Queen-sized bed, it is also suitable for people who have the budget for the latter but would like something larger like the former.</li> <li>People who have additional room to spare can choose an Olympic Queen mattress but most people don’t because it occupies more space. When you have every square inch of your bedroom carefully planned, those 6 inches extra will seem like a lot.</li> <li>Those of you looking for a mattress for the guest bedroom might fancy the idea of choosing an Olympic Queen. It’s comfortable, large, inexpensive, can support two people with ease, and you surely don’t mind sacrificing some extra space to put that bed in the master bedroom.</li> <li>People who have large RVs and often find themselves travelling across the country would find it more comfortable to get an Olympic Queen bed. If we’re talking about couples, the idea of investing in this mattress size is even better.</li> </ul> <h3><strong>What’s it Made From?</strong></h3> <p>Just like other mattress sizes available on the market, <strong>the Olympic Queen is available in a variety of material combinations</strong> and construction. Some mattresses are made entirely out of foam, while others have individually-wrapped coils and organic cotton covers. However, you need to always keep in mind the scarcity of this bed size and remember that if you find a Queen bed with a construction that you really like, odds are you won’t find it in an Olympic Queen version.</p> <h3><strong>Accessories</strong></h3> <p>Finding accessories for an Olympic Queen bed is a bit more difficult compared to finding everything you need for the more standard mattress sizes. If you invested in a bed in this size and would like to buy something along the lines of a waterproof mattress protector or perhaps a fitted sheet, the first place you should start looking is the website of the mattress manufacturer. These brands realize that Olympic Queen mattresses aren’t that common, so they’ve made sure to create a line of bedding items that would accommodate this size.</p> <h2><strong>All About the Queen Bed</strong></h2> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/olympic-queen-vs-regular-queen/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-516285" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Mattress-Size-Infographic-Queen.jpg" alt="" width="800" height="800" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Mattress-Size-Infographic-Queen.jpg 800w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Mattress-Size-Infographic-Queen-300x300.jpg 300w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Mattress-Size-Infographic-Queen-150x150.jpg 150w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Mattress-Size-Infographic-Queen-768x768.jpg 768w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Mattress-Size-Infographic-Queen-245x245.jpg 245w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Mattress-Size-Infographic-Queen-275x275.jpg 275w" sizes="(max-width: 800px) 100vw, 800px" /></a></p> <p>Did you know that <strong>47 percent of Americans choose a Queen-sized bed</strong> over any other available size? Being the most popular size when it comes to mattresses, Queen beds are a dime a dozen, and finding a good mattress in this size is the easier thing possible.</p> <h3><strong>Size</strong></h3> <p>A <strong>Queen-sized bed measures 60 by 80 inches</strong>, which makes it 6 inches narrower compared to an Olympic Queen. The size of the bed makes it a popular choice with couples, although people who have large bedrooms often prefer investing in a King-sized bed, which is more generous in terms of sleeping space. However, Queen mattresses are <a href="https://www.homedit.com/mattresses-for-couples/">popular among couples</a> because they occupy less space and not everyone has a large bedroom.</p> <blockquote><p>Related: <a href="https://www.homedit.com/full-bed-vs-qeeen-size/"><strong>Full Bed VS Qeeen Size – What’s the Difference?</strong></a></p></blockquote> <p><strong>Who’s it For?</strong></p> <p>Before buying a bed, a question naturally arises: how can I be sure this bed size is right for me? If you’re still not sure if a Queen-sized mattress is the right option for you and your bedroom, here are some bits of information that might help you make up your mind:</p> <ul> <li>If you share your bed with a partner but your limited bedroom space won’t allow you to buy the larger and more spacious Olympic Queen, then the regular Queen is definitely the right choice for you.</li> <li>If you currently own or previously owned a Queen bed and you already have the right accessories for it (that means everything from <a href="https://www.homedit.com/best-organic-cotton-sheets/">bed sheets</a> to box spring or bed base), then choosing a Queen mattress this time as well is a good idea.</li> <li>If you sleep alone but share a bed with a pet (even if it’s just a cat), a Full-sized bed might be too small and an Olympic Queen bed is too large for that. That makes the Queen mattress a viable choice in your case as well.</li> <li>If you don’t share a bed with anyone but you have some medical condition that limits your mobility, having more bed room is a good idea. In that case, you might be on the list of viable candidates for a Queen-sized mattress.</li> <li>If you want a stress-free purchase and don’t want to worry about situations where you find a mattress configuration that is right for you only to end up being frustrated that it’s not available in the size you want, you can’t go wrong with a Queen bed. All large mattress brands have Queen-sized versions of the bed you want to buy.</li> </ul> <h3><strong>What’s it Made From?</strong></h3> <p>Because they represent <strong>the most popular mattress size on the market</strong>, Queen-sized beds are made from everything. Foam beds are common among people who want affordable and pressure-relieving beds, hybrids are a newer and more luxurious choice for people who want to enjoy the benefits brought forth by as many mattress-specific materials as possible, latex mattresses are <a href="https://www.homedit.com/best-cooling-mattress-toppers/">great for hot sleepers</a> who want a durable product, and so on. The important thing to remember is that all of these are viable choices when you’re buying a Queen mattress.</p> <h3><strong>Accessories&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; </strong></h3> <p>Finding accessories for a Queen-sized bed is one of the easiest things in the world. There are plenty of accessories to choose from sold by mattress brand themselves, other bedding manufacturers, and third party retailers as well. You can find bedding items available in a wide variety of colors, materials, and patterns, and especially for every budget. When you buy a Queen-sized bed, make sure that you purchase a set of suitable sheets, some pillowcases, and a mattress protector to shield the bed for as long as possible against all sorts of spills.</p> <h2><strong>Which One Is Better for You?</strong></h2> <p>Knowing which of these two sized to pick can be difficult because they aren’t that much different in size compared to each other. If you already have a bed base or a foundation that’s compatible with one of these two mattress sizes, then you should pick the mattress that matches that size.</p> <p>Price is also a considerate that might weight in when it comes to choosing one mattress over another. However, the price difference between these two beds isn’t all that big (typically an Olympic Queen bed will cost about $50 to $100 more compared to its Queen-sized counterpart). Even so, you will have to consider the fact that the accessories for a larger bed will cost more, which makes the end cost of an Olympic Queen higher.</p> <p>It is also important to note that not all major mattress brands have bed available in the Olympic Queen size, which makes the product scarce and, sometimes, darn right difficult to find.</p> <h2><strong>Conclusion</strong></h2> <p>It is somewhat incredible how those 6 inches of width can make such a huge difference between the regular Queen and the Olympic Queen mattress. Even if the similarities outnumber the differences, each of these two beds addresses quite different market segments, so make sure that you carefully consider all the specification and pros and cons of each mattress size before you actually buy either of them.</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.homedit.com/olympic-queen-vs-regular-queen/">Olympic Queen VS Regular Queen &#8211; What’s the Difference?</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.homedit.com">Home Decorating Trends - Homedit</a>.</p> <img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Homedit/~4/D21KGUss9M8" height="1" width="1" alt=""/> This Small San Francisco Cottage Has the Dreamiest, Woodiest Bathroom https://www.apartmenttherapy.com/san-francisco-earthquake-refugee-shack-cottage-tour-36819485?utm_source=RSS&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Category%2FChannel%3A+main Apartment Therapy | Saving the world, one room at a time urn:uuid:98901ab0-51be-39f6-486a-0f149a8402fa Fri, 18 Sep 2020 13:00:07 +0000 <img src="https://cdn.apartmenttherapy.info/image/upload/f_auto,q_auto:eco,c_fill,g_auto,w_660/at/house%20tours/2020-09/House%20calls/46350051_nathaliemcgrathhome9-2043of42"> This cottage was an earthquake refugee shack and renovated in the 1970s, and is now a cozy cottage home. <a href="https://www.apartmenttherapy.com/san-francisco-earthquake-refugee-shack-cottage-tour-36819485?utm_source=RSS&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Category%2FChannel%3A+main"><strong>READ MORE...</strong></a> Easy Things To Make In Your Spare Time Using Simple Resources https://www.homedit.com/easy-things-to-make/ Home Decorating Trends urn:uuid:36d2af69-e7ca-6131-ab26-21635928a934 Fri, 18 Sep 2020 11:33:11 +0000 <p>Little projects help to keep our creativity going and to inspire us to come up with new ideas for future and possibly bigger projects.

That way you won&#8217;t misplace the keys and have to look for them everywhere while in a hurry and they&#8217;ll also look better and more organized. This <a href="https://www.homedit.com/diy-gilded-square-nail-key-rack/">gilded square nail key rack</a> is just one of the many easy designs that you can choose to craft. It uses supplies like square nails, a rectangular piece of wood and some gold spray paint.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/easy-things-to-make/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-516332" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Test-Tube-Flower-Vase.jpg" alt="" width="768" height="515" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Test-Tube-Flower-Vase.jpg 768w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Test-Tube-Flower-Vase-300x201.jpg 300w" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px" /></a></p> <p>Here&#8217;s a cool way to use test tubes to make a decoration for your home. It&#8217;s a <a href="https://www.homedit.com/diy-test-tube-vase/">test tube vase</a> with a solid wood base which you can make out of an old block or a reclaimed piece of wood. Sand the wood and make it look nice and pretty, then drill some holes into it for the glass test tubes. Fill these with a bit of water and then add flowers in them. You can use faux flowers if you want to in which case the water is not needed or can be colored to serve as a decorative purpose.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/easy-things-to-make/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-516334" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Vintage-Mold-Tin-Strand-Lights.jpg" alt="" width="768" height="515" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Vintage-Mold-Tin-Strand-Lights.jpg 768w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Vintage-Mold-Tin-Strand-Lights-300x201.jpg 300w" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px" /></a></p> <p>Another simple thing to do is take a basic strand of lights and give it a makeover so you can then display it in your home. You can use some <a href="https://www.homedit.com/diy-vintage-mold-tin-strand-lights/">vintage mold tins</a> (or something else, be creative) and create sort of like mini lampshades for each tiny light on the strand. They&#8217;ll glow and they&#8217;ll look nice and pretty and you can find lots of different ways to customize the design based on your preferred style and whatever resources are available to you.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/easy-things-to-make/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-516335" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Paint-Dipped-Rope-Basket.jpg" alt="" width="768" height="515" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Paint-Dipped-Rope-Basket.jpg 768w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Paint-Dipped-Rope-Basket-300x201.jpg 300w" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px" /></a></p> <p>Some rope that you can easily find at your local hardware store is the main material that you&#8217;re going to need to make a decorative <a href="https://www.homedit.com/diy-paint-dipped-rope-basket/">rope basket</a>. Start to craft it from the bottom and coil the rope into circles, adding hot glue as you go to keep the rope nice and tight. Then start shaping the edges of the basket and try to keep it symmetrical. Widen it as you add more layers of rope and when you&#8217;re happy with the size cut off the rope and secure the end with more glue. The final touch is to spray paint the bottom of the basket.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/easy-things-to-make/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-516336" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-hexagon-tray1-768x515-1.jpg" alt="" width="768" height="515" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-hexagon-tray1-768x515-1.jpg 768w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-hexagon-tray1-768x515-1-300x201.jpg 300w" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px" /></a></p> <p>Another idea is to make a <a href="https://www.homedit.com/diy-hexagonal-tray/">hexagonal tray</a> which you can use to store and to organize little things like keys, jewelry, various desk items and so on. You can make the tray out of some pieces of plywood and spray paint it once it&#8217;s done so it looks nice and pretty. The hexagonal shape gives it a chic look but can be altered and changed in case you prefer something different, like a simple rectangular tray for example.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/easy-things-to-make/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-516337" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Popsicle-Stick-Hexagon-Shelf-hang-683x1024-1.jpg" alt="" width="683" height="1024" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Popsicle-Stick-Hexagon-Shelf-hang-683x1024-1.jpg 683w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Popsicle-Stick-Hexagon-Shelf-hang-683x1024-1-200x300.jpg 200w" sizes="(max-width: 683px) 100vw, 683px" /></a></p> <p>Speaking of interesting geometric shapes and designs, check out this hexagonal shelf from <a href="https://www.diys.com/diy-popsicle-stick-hexagon-shelf/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">diys</a>. It&#8217;s made from lots and lots of popsicle sticks which are glued together to create many layers. As you can imagine, this is not the strongest kind of shelf that you can make and it won&#8217;t be able to hold heavy items. Still, it&#8217;s nice if you want to display a little vase or a framed picture on it.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/easy-things-to-make/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-516338" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/gold-pencil-holder-how-to-768x515-1.jpg" alt="" width="768" height="515" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/gold-pencil-holder-how-to-768x515-1.jpg 768w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/gold-pencil-holder-how-to-768x515-1-300x201.jpg 300w" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px" /></a></p> <p>With a block of wood and a drill with various different-sized drill bits can be used to make a nice <a href="https://www.homedit.com/diy-gilded-pencil-holder/">gilded pencil holder</a> for your desk. The gilded part is optional but it definitely makes this whole thing look more stylish. An alternative can be to paint it or to use tape to create a pattern or an interesting design on it in combination with some colored paint as well. Either way, it&#8217;s an easy project with a lot of potential for customization.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/easy-things-to-make/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-516339" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/how-to-hang-wall-plates-687x1024-1.jpg" alt="" width="687" height="1024" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/how-to-hang-wall-plates-687x1024-1.jpg 687w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/how-to-hang-wall-plates-687x1024-1-201x300.jpg 201w" sizes="(max-width: 687px) 100vw, 687px" /></a></p> <p>If you have an empty wall that you feel could use some sort of decoration, perhaps it might look nice with some plates on it. You can easily learn <a href="https://www.homedit.com/how-to-hang-wall-plates/">how to hang plates</a> and how to use them as display pieces just by experimenting. You can use metal picture hangers and super glue to attach them to screws into the wall so you can easily swap them, remove them to clean them or put up new ones.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/easy-things-to-make/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-516340" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Pallet-Table-with-Hairpin-Legs.jpg" alt="" width="768" height="512" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Pallet-Table-with-Hairpin-Legs.jpg 768w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Pallet-Table-with-Hairpin-Legs-300x200.jpg 300w" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px" /></a></p> <p>Usually building a piece of furniture of furniture from scratch is not exactly a very easy or quick thing to do. However, this <a href="https://www.homedit.com/diy-pallet-table-hairpin-legs/">pallet table with hairpin legs</a> is an exception. It&#8217;s su[er easy to put together something like this. A few simple alterations to a wooden pallet and a set of four hairpin legs give you a nice unfinished product which you can then detail and customize using stain, paint, clear varnish or whatever else you prefer.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/easy-things-to-make/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-516341" src="https://www.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Small-Concrete-Planter-–-Video-Tutorial.jpg" alt="" width="1024" height="576" srcset="https://www.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Small-Concrete-Planter-–-Video-Tutorial.jpg 1024w, https://www.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Small-Concrete-Planter-–-Video-Tutorial-300x169.jpg 300w, https://www.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Small-Concrete-Planter-–-Video-Tutorial-768x432.jpg 768w, https://www.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Small-Concrete-Planter-–-Video-Tutorial-800x450.jpg 800w, https://www.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Small-Concrete-Planter-–-Video-Tutorial-970x546.jpg 970w" sizes="(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px" /></a></p> <p>Concrete is used for lots of big-scale projects but can also be a great resource for various little crafts. For example, it would really nice to make a bunch of small concrete planters for succulents, cacti and other plants and to have them displayed on a windowsill, a shelf or a table. You can use empty yogurt cups or other containers as molds for the planters.

This is one of the easiest ways to craft a wall decoration using very few materials: just a wooden dowel and a bunch of yarn in different colors. Mix and match various types of yarns and colors to create combinations and designs that you think would suit your home best. You can easily change the design and color palette later on if you renovate the place.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/easy-things-to-make/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-516351" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Triangle-Wooden-Photo-Holder.jpg" alt="" width="900" height="1216" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Triangle-Wooden-Photo-Holder.jpg 900w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Triangle-Wooden-Photo-Holder-222x300.jpg 222w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Triangle-Wooden-Photo-Holder-758x1024.jpg 758w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Triangle-Wooden-Photo-Holder-768x1038.jpg 768w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Triangle-Wooden-Photo-Holder-800x1081.jpg 800w" sizes="(max-width: 900px) 100vw, 900px" /></a></p> <p>This <a href="https://www.homedit.com/wooden-photo-holder/">wooden photo holder</a> is just another little thing that you can keep on your desk or put up on a shelf as a way to personalize the space a bit more. It&#8217;s very easy to make using only a little piece of wood which you can cut to the desires shape and size using a saw. Make a little slit at the top so you can insert a picture or a note in there. You can also use tape and paint to decorate this photo holder however you want to.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/easy-things-to-make/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-516344" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/How-To-Turn-Wallpaper-Into-A-Design-Lampshade.jpg" alt="" width="900" height="1240" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/How-To-Turn-Wallpaper-Into-A-Design-Lampshade.jpg 900w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/How-To-Turn-Wallpaper-Into-A-Design-Lampshade-218x300.jpg 218w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/How-To-Turn-Wallpaper-Into-A-Design-Lampshade-743x1024.jpg 743w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/How-To-Turn-Wallpaper-Into-A-Design-Lampshade-768x1058.jpg 768w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/How-To-Turn-Wallpaper-Into-A-Design-Lampshade-800x1102.jpg 800w" sizes="(max-width: 900px) 100vw, 900px" /></a></p> <p>If you have a bit of wallpaper leftover from your remodeling project, this is a cool way to use incorporate it into another DIY project. This is also a really cool and interesting way to make a lampshade that looks beautiful and modern without relying on any of the classical techniques and materials. All you need to do if you want to <a href="https://www.homedit.com/wallpaper-into-a-design-lampshade/">turn wallpaper into a lampshade</a> is just cut out a circle shape, find the center, make a cut halfway through and then proceed to create folds all the way around. Use double-sided tape to connect the edges.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/easy-things-to-make/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-516345" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Facade-Wire-Hanger.jpg" alt="" width="768" height="512" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Facade-Wire-Hanger.jpg 768w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Facade-Wire-Hanger-300x200.jpg 300w" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px" /></a></p> <p>Over the door hangers are great for bathrooms and small bedrooms in general because they give you a little bit of extra storage space for towels, clothes and various other things. They&#8217;re also out of the way but still easily accessible and they don&#8217;t take up any space on the walls, floor or counters. This <a href="https://www.homedit.com/diy-facade-wire-hanger/">facade wire hanger</a> is just as practical and all the ones you find in stores and on top of that it has a cool handmade design. You can make the whole thing from scratch from copper grounding wire.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/easy-things-to-make/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-516346" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-half-log-book-ends-768x513-1.jpg" alt="" width="768" height="513" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-half-log-book-ends-768x513-1.jpg 768w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-half-log-book-ends-768x513-1-300x200.jpg 300w" sizes="(max-width: 768px) 100vw, 768px" /></a></p> <p>A wooden log (or just half of it really) is something you should definitely bring home. You can use it in all sorts of interesting ways to craft decorations and accessories for your home, like these <a href="https://www.homedit.com/diy-half-log-bookends/">half log bookends</a> for example. They&#8217;re not very detailed which is why this is such an easy project. If pink is not really your color then feel free to choose something different or to decorate your log in other ways. Just leaving it plain and natural can also look beautiful.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/easy-things-to-make/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-516347" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Tree-Stump-Side-Table.jpg" alt="" width="684" height="1024" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Tree-Stump-Side-Table.jpg 684w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/DIY-Tree-Stump-Side-Table-200x300.jpg 200w" sizes="(max-width: 684px) 100vw, 684px" /></a></p> <p>Larger logs, or better said tree stumps, can potentially be used to make furniture. One really easy option is to make a <a href="https://www.homedit.com/diy-tree-stump-side-table/">tree stump side table</a>. All you really need to do is make sure the stump has a flat top and bottom. You can leave the bark on if you prefer a rustic look or you can remove it for a cleaner look. Also, since this will be a heavy side table, you can install casters on the bottom so you can easily move it around the house if needed.&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/easy-things-to-make/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-516348" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Easy-DIY-Halloween-Yarn-Spider-Web.jpg" alt="" width="768" height="513" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Easy-DIY-Halloween-Yarn-Spider-Web.jpg 768w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Easy-DIY-Halloween-Yarn-Spider-Web-300x200.jpg 300w" sizes="(m Want Fluffier Towels?

Finding a nice mirror at a decent price can be a real challenge but as always the DIY option is available. If these projects don&#8217;t inspire you to make your own vanity mirror with lights then I don&#8217;t know what will.</p> <h2>How to choose a vanity mirror</h2> <p>The mirror is basically the most important accessory of the makeup vanity, the one that can’t be missing. So how do you choose it? With so many different choices and styles it can be easy to get lost in the details. Here’s a few things that can help you narrow down your options:</p> <h3>Placement</h3> <p>Knowing exactly where the mirror will be placed helps to decide a few important things about it like size, mounting style, shape and so on. If for example you want a mirror for your bathroom vanity where there’s rarely room to spare, it might be wise to get a wall-mounted model. On the other hand, a bedroom vanity could give you a bit more freedom and more space to work with so you can potentially opt for something else.</p> <h3>Usage</h3> <p>It’s also important to think of how you’ll be using the mirror each time. If you’re going to be seated, the mirror should sit at a comfortable height and not too far away from you. It should also sit at a good angle so you don’t have to twist and turn in order to use it. Take some time to find the perfect spot for it and consider all the mounting options.</p> <h3>Size</h3> <p>Size is always important. A vanity mirror shouldn’t be too small because that defeats the whole purpose of having it in the first place. It shouldn’t be too big either because it can get in the way. Its size should be relative to the space available around it and the size of the vanity itself. Of course, size is also linked to the type of mirror that you want to get. A wall-mounted one with a double extension arm is usually not as big as a freestanding mirror.</p> <h3>Lighting</h3> <p>Yes, natural light is the best but you can’t always rely on it. It would be great to place the vanity in front of a big window but that’s usually out of the question if the vanity is in the bathroom for example. Luckily, a lot of vanity mirrors feature some type of built-in lighting. The best lighting for a mirror is the one that’s distributed uniformly and doesn’t blind the eye. If the light is only coming from the top that will produce shadows and won’t give you a good image of how you actually look like.</p> <h3>Magnification</h3> <p>This is a nice feature designed to allow you to be very exact when applying makeup and doing other things in front of the mirror. The magnification of a mirror is also very helpful if you wear glasses because you’ll need to get rid of them when applying your makeup. One thing to consider is that you’ll need to sit close to the mirror in order to get a clear magnified image.</p> <p>There are various degrees of magnification to consider. The most common ones are 3x and 5x which is usually enough for most users with good vision. If you need something a bit more powerful, you can also find 10x and even 15x magnification mirrors. Keep in mind that you’ll need to get very close to the mirror to avoid distortion and this amplifies the more powerful the magnification is.</p> <p>A lot of makeup mirrors have two sides. One is the regular mirror and on the other side you have a magnified mirror. You can switch between these whenever you need to depending on the task. This applied to just about all types of mirrors, including those with built-in lighting.</p> <p>Also keep in mind that the quality of the mirror can bring additional benefits. For example, some high end makeup mirrors use optician’s lenses that enhance the magnification quality and offer a distortion-free image which is very clear. Of course, better quality means a higher price.</p> <h2>Easy DIY Vanity Mirror Projects</h2> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/diy-vanity-mirror-projects/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-476729" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Diy-vanity-mirror.jpg" alt="" width="564" height="423" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Diy-vanity-mirror.jpg 564w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Diy-vanity-mirror-300x225.jpg 300w" sizes="(max-width: 564px) 100vw, 564px" /></a></p> <p>Since the mirror part is not exactly that interesting, we&#8217;re going to focus mostly on the frames and the different ways in which you can add lights to a vanity mirror. This project from <a href="https://insightgirl.com/diy-vanity-mirrors-with-lights/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">insightgirl</a> explains how this simple frame was made before the mirror was glued into place. It may seem complicated since there are lights and power sources involved but it really isn&#8217;t.</p> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/diy-vanity-mirror-projects/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-476730" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Bedroom-DIY-Vanity-Mirror.jpg" alt="" width="1200" height="675" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Bedroom-DIY-Vanity-Mirror.jpg 1200w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Bedroom-DIY-Vanity-Mirror-300x169.jpg 300w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Bedroom-DIY-Vanity-Mirror-768x432.jpg 768w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Bedroom-DIY-Vanity-Mirror-1024x576.jpg 1024w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Bedroom-DIY-Vanity-Mirror-800x450.jpg 800w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Bedroom-DIY-Vanity-Mirror-970x546.jpg 970w" sizes="(max-width: 1200px) 100vw, 1200px" /></a></p> <p>The frame can also be part of the mirror itself, just painted a different color. Use paint to mark a border around the mirror, cover the center with paper and then spray paint the rest. This rose gold nuance looks very chic and glamorous. Once this part is complete and the paint is dry, all that&#8217;s left is attaching the lights.

That being said, check out this stylish setup. It includes a glossy desk with a minimalist design and a big mirror with lights around the frame.

You can make a wooden frame for your mirror which would actually also have a practical use. Drill holes in it for the lights and carefully hide all the wires behind the frame. This way your new vanity mirror will look neat and stylish and will have lights all the way around.

The supplies required for the project include a frameless mirror, three vanity light strips, a bunch of light bulbs, plywood and some basic tools such as a table saw, sandpaper, screws, a measuring tape and also some paint.</p> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/diy-vanity-mirror-projects/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-476734" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Vanity-makeup-with-lights-and-hairpin-legs.jpg" alt="" width="1024" height="576" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Vanity-makeup-with-lights-and-hairpin-legs.jpg 1024w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Vanity-makeup-with-lights-and-hairpin-legs-300x169.jpg 300w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Vanity-makeup-with-lights-and-hairpin-legs-768x432.jpg 768w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Vanity-makeup-with-lights-and-hairpin-legs-800x450.jpg 800w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Vanity-makeup-with-lights-and-hairpin-legs-970x546.jpg 970w" sizes="(max-width: 1024px) 100vw, 1024px" /></a></p> <p>It&#8217;s not just the mirror that you can build yourself from scratch but also the vanity that holds it. One such complex project is featured on <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Makeup-Vanity/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">instructables</a> and is very interesting because the mirror and the lights are attached to the table itself, more specifically to a central piece which folds up to reveal the mirror and can keep it out of sight when not needed.</p> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/diy-vanity-mirror-projects/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-476735" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/LED-ring-vanity-mirror.jpg" alt="" width="1167" height="644" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/LED-ring-vanity-mirror.jpg 1167w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/LED-ring-vanity-mirror-300x166.jpg 300w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/LED-ring-vanity-mirror-768x424.jpg 768w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/LED-ring-vanity-mirror-1024x565.jpg 1024w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/LED-ring-vanity-mirror-800x441.jpg 800w" sizes="(max-width: 1167px) 100vw, 1167px" /></a></p> <p>The mirror and the lights can be separate. You could for example make a round frame that lights up which can fit around an existing mirror. This is a very ingenious project which requires some unexpected supplies such as a metal wreath form, metallic tape, picture hangers and rope lights. Check out the video tutorial on <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ad434acjC1w" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">youtube</a>.</p> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/diy-vanity-mirror-projects/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-476736" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Rustic-Hollywood-Mirror.jpg" alt="" width="600" height="827" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Rustic-Hollywood-Mirror.jpg 600w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Rustic-Hollywood-Mirror-218x300.jpg 218w" sizes="(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px" /></a></p> <p>Another idea is to use an old mirror and to give it a makeover. Ideally, the frame would be wide enough to accommodate the lights. You&#8217;ll have to drill some holes into the frame for the lights and to find a way to neatly organize all the wires and to hide them behind the mirror.

One such transformation is featured on <a href="https://imgur.com/gallery/JkPWO" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">imgur</a>. The supplies used throughout this project include electrical wire, shrink tubing, a dimmer switch, glue, a wall plug, 12 round light bulbs, cable covers, 12 light bulb sockets and of course the framed mirror. This is just one way to get things done.</p> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/diy-vanity-mirror-projects/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-476738" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Creating-a-modern-vanity-mirror-with-lights.jpg" alt="" width="1200" height="673" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Creating-a-modern-vanity-mirror-with-lights.jpg 1200w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Creating-a-modern-vanity-mirror-with-lights-300x168.jpg 300w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Creating-a-modern-vanity-mirror-with-lights-768x431.jpg 768w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Creating-a-modern-vanity-mirror-with-lights-1024x574.jpg 1024w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/Creating-a-modern-vanity-mirror-with-lights-800x449.jpg 800w" sizes="(max-width: 1200px) 100vw, 1200px" /></a></p> <p>You might not think you actually need a vanity mirror right now but the more you look at these projects the more enticing it becomes to want to build something like this for yourself.

Not only does one love the sensation of feeling clean and smelling nice, but being in the shower is an incredibly relaxing experience. What if we told you that you can make the whole thing even more relaxing if you invested in items that could create a very soothing décor, such as scented candles or <strong>LED shower heads</strong>? No, this isn’t an article about perfumed candles, but we are going to show you how awesome LED shower heads can be by teaching you what you need to look for in such a product and what are some of the <strong>best-LED shower heads</strong> that money can buy.</p> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/led-shower-head/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter wp-image-516390 size-full" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Sauna-Shower-with-led-shower-head.jpg" alt="" width="850" height="1133" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Sauna-Shower-with-led-shower-head.jpg 850w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Sauna-Shower-with-led-shower-head-225x300.jpg 225w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Sauna-Shower-with-led-shower-head-768x1024.jpg 768w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/Sauna-Shower-with-led-shower-head-800x1066.jpg 800w" sizes="(max-width: 850px) 100vw, 850px" /></a></p> <h2><strong>Benefits of a LED Shower Head</strong></h2> <p>You might be thinking that a <strong>LED shower head</strong> is nothing more than an average shower head with pretty light. And you wouldn’t be very wrong in assuming that. However, there are plenty of benefits that the light factor brings to the table, so let’s explain why LED shower head are a much cooler and more convenient option compared to a regular product.</p> <ul> <li><strong>Because of their colorful lights</strong>, LED showers are bound to make bath time more enjoyable for kids. Parents have often struggled to convince their children to take a bath before going to bed, but the playful lights that LED shower heads are equipped with are surely going to attract the curiosity of your child while also making them fascinated with the different colors.</li> <li>LED shower heads are <strong>way more convenient</strong> than people think. In fact, the price difference between a regular shower head and a LED one is quite insignificant. Even more, certain models have LED attachments that can be removed, so if you ever feel like you’re not in the mood for colorful lights while you’re taking a shower, you can always remove the LED and use the shower head as you normally would.</li> <li>Some LED shower head will <strong>change color depending</strong> on the water temperature. This is a huge benefit because you will always know how hot or cold the water is without having to touch it. You can avoid that horrible sensation of a cold jet of water on your body but you can also avoid that burning sensation when you step under a very hot shower.</li> <li>Aside from the obvious <strong>romantic atmosphere</strong> brought forth by these shower heads, what if the LED was powerful enough for you to shower without having to turn the lights on? This is, of course, a piece of advice that we would only give to people who are super careful and can still see in the dark. If there is a slightest chance that you won’t see what you’re doing under the LED shower head lights, then disregard this idea because there’s no joking around with bathroom safety.</li> <li>Last, but not least, we wanted to say that LED shower heads are safer than you think. It’s only natural to think that electricity and water should never be combined, but <strong>LED shower heads are constructed to use water to generate power</strong>, which nullified the chances of an electric shock (note that some models are battery-powered).</li> </ul> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/led-shower-head/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter wp-image-516391 size-full" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/tenzo-shower-options-ideas.jpg" alt="" width="1275" height="850" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/tenzo-shower-options-ideas.jpg 1275w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/tenzo-shower-options-ideas-300x200.jpg 300w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/tenzo-shower-options-ideas-1024x683.jpg 1024w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/tenzo-shower-options-ideas-768x512.jpg 768w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/tenzo-shower-options-ideas-800x533.jpg 800w" sizes="(max-width: 1275px) 100vw, 1275px" /></a></p> <h2><strong>Choosing a LED Shower Head</strong></h2> <p>Knowing more about a line of products before you buy it will help you stay informed enough to make a shopping decision that you won’t regret. When it comes to opting for a shower hand, understanding what these product have to offer will help you realize whether this product is suitable for you or not, but also show you what to look for in case you decide to buy one. With LED shower heads, here is the need-to-know information:</p> <ul> <li>Setup: Whenever people hear about the concept of LED lights, they think that installing these shower heads requires some sort of special setup. The reality is that installing a LED shower head is basically the same as setting up a regular shower head. The fitting are standard and there is no additional hardware or wiring required to do so.</li> <li>Power: Another common myth is the fact that LED shower lights need to be connected to electricity, when they are actually either battery or water-powered. Most of these products literally use the pressure of water to turn on the integrated lights. That means that they don’t add up to your electricity bill no matter which types of power option your future LED shower head is equipped with.</li> <li><strong>Temperature-related features:</strong> While some LED shower heads allow you select the desired color for the lights, it is best if you opt for models with automatic color change based on the temperature of the water. They typically have three colors: blue is to indicate colder water, green is for water that’s safe to use when showering, and red will tell you that the temperature might be too high for the average human comfort.</li> </ul> <h2><strong>Top 10 Best LED Shower Heads</strong></h2> <h3 class="product"><a href="https://www.anrdoezrs.net/links/8479602/type/dlg/https://www.wayfair.com/home-improvement/pdp/ana-bath-4-inch-5-function-25-spray-modes-blue-led-multi-function-dual-shower-head-w003098767.html"rel="nofollow">4-Inch 5-Function 25-Spray Modes Blue LED Multi Function Dual Shower Head</a></h3> <p><a href="https://www.homedit.com/led-shower-head/"><img loading="lazy" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-516222" src="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/25-Spray-Modes-Blue-LED-Multi-Function-Dual-Shower-Head.jpg" alt="" width="710" height="785" srcset="https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/25-Spray-Modes-Blue-LED-Multi-Function-Dual-Shower-Head.jpg 710w, https://cdn.homedit.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/25-Spray-Modes-Blue-LED-Multi-Function-Dual-Shower-Head-271x300.jpg 271w" sizes="(max-width: 710px) 100vw, 710px" /></a></p> <p>Today’s first item is a shower head made by <a href="https://www.anrdoezrs.net/links/8479602/type/dlg/https://www.wayfair.com/home-improvement/pdp/ana-bath-4-inch-5-function-25-spray-modes-blue-led-multi-function-dual-shower-head-w003098767.html"rel="nofollow"><strong>Ana Bath</strong></a>.

Designed by Chisel Architecture, the home capitalizes on the beautiful views of its lakeside location and is even named Island View Breeze. The renovation included additions to expand the porch and kitchen, but the interior ceiling and its original height were preserved in the new design. The wooded location and casual outdoor spaces like the fire pit out back add to the relaxing features of the home. Throughout the home, the architects incorporated new in-swing casement windows to allow fresh breezes from the lake to circulate throughout. The overall design of the interior, by Lucy Interior Design, is decidedly rustic cabin style. The family room centers around the large stone fireplace and features walls paneled in knotty pine. The expanded porch is a marvelous space that is light-filled and ideal for relaxing at any time of day. Another area of the home that was expanded was the kitchen, which is always the hub of a home. Open shelving puts casual tableware on display and the blue-gray farmhouse style cabinetry is fresh yet stays true to the cabin vibe....</p><p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.digsdigs.com/rustic-woods-cabin/">Rustic North Woods Cabin With A Very Cozy Feel</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.digsdigs.com">DigsDigs</a>.</p> <div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Digsdigs?a=nBnrF4lyxH8:6MqQh9jY2HU:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Digsdigs?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Digsdigs?a=nBnrF4lyxH8:6MqQh9jY2HU:7Q72WNTAKBA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Digsdigs?d=7Q72WNTAKBA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Digsdigs?a=nBnrF4lyxH8:6MqQh9jY2HU:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Digsdigs?i=nBnrF4lyxH8:6MqQh9jY2HU:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Digsdigs?a=nBnrF4lyxH8:6MqQh9jY2HU:gIN9vFwOqvQ"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Digsdigs?i=nBnrF4lyxH8:6MqQh9jY2HU:gIN9vFwOqvQ" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Digsdigs?a=nBnrF4lyxH8:6MqQh9jY2HU:TzevzKxY174"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Digsdigs?d=TzevzKxY174" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Digsdigs?a=nBnrF4lyxH8:6MqQh9jY2HU:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/Digsdigs?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Digsdigs/~4/nBnrF4lyxH8" height="1" width="1" alt=""/> A Rustic Residence That Pays Homage To A Classic 1940s California Cabin https://www.homedit.com/rustic-residence-that-pays-homage/ Home Decorating Trends urn:uuid:12afde65-4eba-c0b1-c42f-b30f72c4b25d Thu, 17 Sep 2020 13:12:05 +0000 <p>This beautiful piece of land from the Santa Monica Canyon in Los Angeles once was home to a 1940s cabin used as a testing station for the Forest Station.

one more number to track during our daily doom-scrolls. | Al Seib/Los Angeles Times via Getty Images</small> <p>And even if you don’t live there, you probably will be looking at your AQI number

orange</a>, the truth for many residents here is that orange would have been a welcome relief, as opposed to red, purple, or deep maroon. Not the color of the sky, of course, but the color-coded index of toxic airborne pollutants, which, this week, reached maroon level — hazardous — for much of the western third of the United States. And inevitably, because there’s an app for that, a huge number of Westerners are glued to their air-quality trackers, structuring their lives around whether their hometown dot is closer to green than to burgundy.</p> <p id="a7fjpC">Air-quality apps have become a constant — don’t make me say they’re the summer’s <em>hottest</em> item — for those living in the states where <a href="https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2020/09/california-cant-afford-to-wait-for-climate-action.html">hundreds of wildfires</a> have created smoky skies and burning eyes for tens of millions of people.

But the most relevant pollutant during wildfire season is PM2.5 particulate pollution — named for the size of the particles, which is 2.5 microns, or thousandths of a millimeter — embedding itself into your lungs. In the broadest description, it’s superfine dust, ash, and soot.</p> <p id="Y2jIdU">The <a href="https://www.airnow.gov/aqi/aqi-basics/">color-coded values</a> that the apps display indicate risk. Zero to 50 (green) is likely healthy for all; 101 to 150 (orange) is where breathing may get difficult for “sensitive groups” like young children, older adults, or people with chronic respiratory issues like asthma.

While ash is raining from the sky, however, these apps instead become a survival tool, a coping mechanism, and a reminder of how often you’ll need to change the air filters in your HVAC systems. </p> <p id="udkFmr">As we reach the six-month mark of a life spent indoors, staring at our screens, the data has become a welcome distraction. “I have spent, conservatively, 40 hours looking at air-quality data since last Thursday,” said Rabi Abonour, an L.A.-based advocate for sustainable transportation. Checking an air-quality app is a — if not quite pleasant, then at least slightly less morbid — break from doom-scrolling the flood of pandemic-related numbers like case counts and test positivity rates. (Self-care advice: Don’t scroll all the way back to April and look at those <a href="https://www.cnbc.com/2020/04/23/coronavirus-photos-show-effect-of-air-pollution-drops-from-global-lockdown.html">slideshows of sparkling, clear-skied cities</a> under lockdown.) As you wallow in the depths of dark red, urging the index to creep back down is a 2020 version of cheering for your team — go, Green! — and quite a few users have equated their addiction to watching sports. “Anyone else refreshing AQI apps like ESPN dashboards?” asked Annie Fryman, a Bay Area housing and transportation policy-maker. “I just caught myself reflexively cheering at a 142 after a day of 160s.” </p> <div id="IP842M"> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet"> <p lang="en" dir="ltr">please please please PLEASE <a href="https://t.co/ymvymCMli2">pic.twitter.com/ymvymCMli2</a></p>— Stephen Judkins (@stephenjudkins) <a href="https://twitter.com/stephenjudkins/status/1305916186840891392?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">September 15, 2020</a> </blockquote> <script async="" src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script> </div> <p id="I4xemw">This addiction is likely to spread. Last year, Apple added AQI to its daily forecast, and, just this summer, AccuWeather did too. But the tricky thing about forecasting air quality is that the factors contributing to a bad air day are not so easy to predict in advance — plus fires themselves are erratic — at most, it’s an educated guess. Topography, wind, and microclimates can influence readings, as well as specifics like being close to freeways or factories. Better data relies on lots of sensors, and some apps, like PurpleAir, use information gathered largely by a network of monitors installed by users. So if you’re so inclined, while you obsessively self-monitor the air outside your home, you can contribute to the crowdsourced cause, helping to paint a more complete color-by-number AQI picture.</p> <p id="A7rI8P">With this week’s news that the smoke from the fires has <a href="https://www.nytimes.com/2020/09/15/us/fires-california-oregon-washington-west.html">made it to the East Coast</a>, creating hazy skies and tangerine sunsets, the rest of the country might be wondering if an air-quality app is right for them. In a changed climate, where <a href="https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2020-09-11/six-of-californias-largest-fires-in-history-are-burning-right-now">six out of 20 of the largest fires in California history</a> are currently burning, smoke events like the one billowing across the continent could certainly become more frequent. But all big cities already have <a href="https://www.curbed.com/2020/4/7/21175554/how-to-improve-indoor-air-quality-purifier">particulate-matter problems of their own</a>, at least sometimes.
