4 Ways of Glamorising a Small Apartment

Though there is still some time till the New Year eve, but perhaps it is about time that you give a serious thought to adding some glamour and glow to your few years’ old interior decor. Redecorating your place is a good idea, especially if you are a bit low on financial side as well as in the living space at your disposal. However, being low on finances doesn’t mean you have lost your right to enjoy a lovely new year in a lovely new-looking place. So, here I am with 4 ways of glamorising a small living room

Small Living Room Decor

1.      Splashing some colour
There can’t be anything simpler than adding new life into your old apartment decor by splashing a coat of paint around. However, you need to be careful in choosing the hues. Popular colour choices on every wall might turn out too overwhelming for you, so I suggest resorting to lighter shades with exception of a single accent wall, adding the ‘X’ factor to your interior. It will surely revive and refresh your room interior.

2.      Tweaking Your Bedroom Furniture
Well, you are lucky to be living in this time and place in many respects; it has been never so easy tweaking your old furniture to get new life, than it is today. One way of doing so is by painting or staining the furniture (only when done appropriately). You can go for shading your nightstands and dressers in any of the contemporary colours like teal or pink, grey and so forth. These items can also be stained with a dark varnish, incorporating a classic antique look. Make sure there is no dust and dirt on surfaces you are about to treat. And if this sounds too much to you, you might simply change your linens and sheets. Matching it with curtains can bring about a unique freshness into the ambiance of the room.  You can also think about changing your old bed with any of the new storage beds available in market, especially if you want to add some spare space and neatness in the room.

3.      “Outfitting” your couch
I bet you will stop laughing and start jumping with joy as soon as you see the results of this funny looking phrase in your living room. If bringing in new furniture and couches sounds too physically and financially demanding, you can show your love and affection to your old living room furniture by simply getting new outfits or upholstering for your couches and chairs. Again, if you feel intimidated by the idea of a staple gun treating yards of fabric, you can simply resort to ready made chair and couch covers, which won’t be as costly as new furnishing for sure.

4.      Redefining your mementos
There is a popular trend surfacing in the world of DIY decor and that is to make the best out of your memories by turning them into art pieces. We are not talking about getting your best report card framed, but something more serious and personal; for example, your first ticket to a concert as a group of high school friends. And the list could go on and on, the key is to get the idea implemented.

When there is a will, there is a way!

Which Industrial Blender is Right for Your Company?

Industrial blenders can make quick work of almost anything placed inside. Though similar to traditional blenders in terms of how this units work, you'll find industrial designs that are large enough for you to stand inside. Companies that use these blenders include bakeries, commercial manufacturers and even restaurants that make their own ice creams and smoothies. Using an industrial design can increase your overall sales, but you need to know which one is right for you.

Ribbon Blender

A ribbon blender features large sharp metal pieces that move in a circular motion. Those pieces form a ribbon shape that runs down the center of the machine to ensure that the edges cut through all areas of the ingredients placed inside.

Continuous Blender

If you want something that you can set and forget, you'll want a continuous blender. As long as there are ingredients placed inside, it will keep moving and blending until you hit the power button. Many newer designs feature safety mechanisms that shut the machine off when an emergency occurs.

Paddle Blender

You might see paddle blenders used by bakeries and restaurants. Instead of sharp blades, these blenders use paddles that spin along set spaces in the blender to better incorporate ingredients.

Fluidizer Blender

Looking for something that will pulverize nearly anything you place inside? Check this out. A fluidizer blender is easily the biggest and baddest blender on the market. Multiple sharp paddles placed throughout the machine move constantly to pulverize ingredients, which makes it a popular choice in smoothie shops. Look at all the different types of industrial blenders before making your final decision.
