Honestly, 2 weeks isn't that much time left so by now you should have everything more or less packed and stowed away in storage boxes waiting for the truck. You can then take this time to handle the miscellaneous like changing of address for the mails, internet and telephone services, subscriptions and so on. You … Read more

There are various types of storage sheds that you can build on your own depending on your needs. Some people prefer metal to be waterproof and durable whereas others think that wooden sheds are sufficient. The foundation or the base also needs to be based on the space you have and what type of shed … Read more

I have always treated a new coat of paint as a makeover regardless for whichever room around my house. As for the bathroom, you could consider changing the accessories inside such as the storage cabinet or drawers you might have by replacing them or restoring them depending on your budget. Apart from that, you could … Read more

This is a very subjective answer to your question because it depends on what you like! If you're the kind of person who doesn't like a mess, than having good dual-purpose storage furniture might be able to help you keep things neat and tidy. Otherwise, you could put up almost anything you like as long … Read more

It's not a matter of whether the bed can fit into the room, but whether you'll be okay with the amount of space that will be left behind once you've moved your bed in. Take into consideration the door frame too as it will affect the ease of moving the mattress in. You may also … Read more

I would actually suggest to try and break up the feel of the room with some wood or texture as all black furniture can be quite gloomy. Perhaps some glass and wood on your storage cabinets will be enough to lend some nice break in the feeling of the room. Plants help, and other earthy … Read more

I think this depends on what type of storage shed you're intending to build, or install as the pre-fabricated options become more and more available near your home. Most storage sheds that require installation should come with some instructions and advice and the ones that you intend to build can be anchored into the ground … Read more

The carpet is a part of the apartment and as a fixture, it is included inside the rental fee that is charged to you. In my opinion anyway. Unless you have stained, or damaged the carpet in any way during your stay, you shouldn't be liable to make any payments for it. Same for storage … Read more

I don’t think that there is any responsibility on the tenant to paint or replace anything in an apartment at all, unless things are damaged and/or stained. Cupboards and storage shelfs should be fixed if they were in good order when you moved in and generally keeping the place in as good a working it … Read more

I have only one piece of advice, and that's the stick to a maximum of ONE theme, not colour in addition to the wood and glass. Your storage units might start to look very messy if the colours are all over the place. But a yellow-red or a rainbow or a gradient might still work … Read more

Sounds like a lot of chipping and thinning the paint before you can get at them if you don't want to have to replace the hinges altogether. But I would say that you should evaluate the storage cabinets and see whether it's worth to just replace the hinges alone. It could be a great opportunity … Read more

I think that this depends on what is stated inside your agreement with your landlord. Conservatively you'll need around a month to finalise things and move things out of storage into boxes, but some landlords require more notice so that they can get someone else to take over your apartment when you leave.

I'm going to give you the non-textbook answer and that's because they have cheap, relatively decently designed and easily accessible furniture options! You're not going to have to worry about busting a gut to get some new storage cupboards or dining room chairs home if you're going shopping at IKEA!

LPG storage is probably in a cylinder because of the ease of storage and transport. Those cylinders can be quite heavy when they are full and the cylinder shape helps it to be rolled if need be. As opposed to a boxed shape, the current "package" can make a fair bit more sense to the … Read more

I personally would not keep the Malibu rum in the fridge. I've found that sweet liqueurs kept in refrigeration are likely to crystallise in the cold. Of course you've to make sure that the lip of the bottle is cleaned well when you're keeping it in there too, but honestly the best way to keep … Read more

Semi-detached houses are quite common in most countries because of the ease of construction. But I think a number of people would prefer their individuality instead of owning a mirror image of the neighbour's place these days. Anyway, at the end of the day it's the items inside in storage that really matters.

I'm just wondering whether town houses are similar to terraced houses since they sometimes have the same characteristics within the gated estate. Personally I think that the facilities, storage and capacity of the house is more of the important factor when choosing a home and the exterior is just a secondary consideration.

Lubrication is a good way to lessen friction, and not necessarily liquid lubrication either. Basically you want to make it easier for the two objects to slide against one another. For example my storage removalists like to use mats to help drag heavy furniture across the floor when they are moving because there'll be less … Read more
