Home Sweet Home

Home Sweet Home: home and design ideas from the official Homemakers blog

Here at Homemakers, we’re dedicated to helping you make the most out of your home. We’ve been working to meet your needs for more than 40 years, and it’s truly an honor to do so.

A lot of the time, our customers come to us with concerns that are pretty universal—how do I maximize floor space? How do I add personality to my home? What are the things I need to consider before I decide to buy furniture?

Other times, the questions are more specific. Owning a house, renting an apartment and transitioning between the two each have their benefits, but they also each bring a unique set of issues to the table. With that in mind, we’re happy to bring you our helpful series: Home Sweet Home.

Helpful Tips and Ideas for Apartments, Houses and More

We’re dividing the series into three parts: Apartment Living, Rent-to-Home and Homeowner How-Tos.

In Apartment Living, we’ll talk about all the challenges that renters face, from refreshing a space on a dime to dealing with noisy neighbors. We’ll focus on temporary décor and pieces that can be repurposed or reused. We’ll talk about how to combine your style with your roommate’s for a cohesive look, and we’ll discuss how to deck out your patio and make multi-purpose spaces work.

Rent-to-Home will focus on the process of transitioning from apartment living to owning a house. We’ll talk about decorating on a budget—moving costs and down payments aren’t cheap! We’ll help you find the furniture you need and show you how to make sure it fits by measuring for your furniture delivery!

In Homeowner How-Tos, we’ll focus on helping established homeowners improve spaces to fit changing needs. We’ll talk about home maintenance—including finally organizing your garage—and give you helpful tips on purchasing investment pieces to carry out your vision for your dream home.
