Gift Ideas For Kids & Teens With Disabilities

The holidays are such a magical time of year! Most people enjoy spending time with families, hearing the Christmas music playing in the stores and the general happiness and positive energy people are tossing around like confetti. For some parents the holidays can be a bit more of a challenge and not because of our grinch attitudes or dislike of the season. The holidays are different for some parents because the holidays are different for our kids. As a mother of three beautiful kids, a girl and two boys (both boys have disabilities) I know how unusual it can be to help your kids enjoy the season as much as others. Our oldest boy has ADHD and struggles to complete tasks or enjoy quiet, calm activities like others his age. Our youngest has Asperger’s which makes it a struggle for him to enjoy the wide range of emotions so many kids express this time of year. The holidays are not always easy for them simply because they experience things differently and don’t enjoy the same activities. Th

Top 4 Improvements That Will Revamp Your Home



It doesn’t matter if you’ve only been living in your home for a fewmonths or a few years, everyone gets bored of staring at the same living space at some point. Unfortunately, not everyone has the cash to splash on major renovations. Luckily, with a few simple home improvements, you can make a huge difference. Here are 4 great ways you can revamp your home.

Deep Clean

It’s surprising how different a clean living space can make everything feel fresh and new again. Although spring has been and gone, it’s never too late to spring clean your home. In fact, it is a good idea to schedule a deep clean at least twice a year. This includes cleaning your window treatments, polishing the floors, and dusting the ceiling. If you manage to deep clean your home twice a year, you can simply perform regular maintenance to keep on top of it. Not only will a spring clean make your home sparkle, but it will also make it a more comfortable place to live too.

Fix up Your Kitchen

The kitchen is the main hub of the home for many people. It is a place to socialize with friends and cook and eat meals with your household. It is an excellent place to start if you want to improve your home drastically. Those on a budget can make small alterations, such as replacing small appliances for brand new models, upgrading the backsplash, and swapping out old fixtures. If your kitchen is looking tired and old, why not get a new kitchen fitted instead? If you are looking for the best bespoke kitchens st albans has to offer, check out Nonpareil.

Illuminate Your Home

You might already have fixed light solutions in place, but are they the best options for your home? The right lighting can make a tremendous difference to a living space and can make or break the ambiance of a room. In work areas, such as kitchens and offices, a bright light is ideal, whereas a soft white light is perfect for social spaces. In addition to the lumens you choose, you should also give some thought to your light fixtures. Statement fixtures are great for drawing attention to a boring space, such as a striking chandelier in the hallway. They can also be both practical and tasteful, like adjustable spotlights in the kitchen.

Paint the Walls

One of the simplest ways to revamp a home is by picking up a paintbrush and repainting your walls a different colorStudies suggest that various colors can make a difference to your mood, and some people apply this logic to interior design. For instance, if you need a boost in the morning, yellow-hued walls are perfect for the kitchen, while those who require a bit of serenity in their life can opt for blues and greens in the bedroom.
