    "Eric and his crew did a masterful job of painting the walls to perfection and making sure that our chestnut woodwork was protected. He oversaw the refinishing of our living room and dining room floor that now glows. He fixed all sorts of things that got our beautiful home ready for sale. All of this Eric did with heart!"

  • Can’t Sleep? Maybe It’s Time To Redesign Your Room!

    room

    If you're having trouble sleeping in your room, take into consideration the layout of your room. Where your bed is positioned, which curtains you're using etc. These details might be a huge factor in your lack of sleep.

    Can't Sleep?

    If you're not getting the quality shut-eye you crave, it may be time to rethink your bedroom environment. A lack of sleep can lead to more than just sluggishness and under-eye circles; research shows that it can weaken the immune system, cause weight gain, and impede overall health, not to mention shorten your life span. While you can't build more hours into your day, you can tinker with your bedroom environment to improve your chances of getting a restful night's sleep. Here are a number of ways to do that.

    Install a Ceiling Fan

    Ceiling fans act like a lullaby, whispering white noise while creating a gentle breeze to keep your body cool. And, since they're cheaper to operate than an air conditioner, you won't lie awake fretting over your electric bills. Allergy sufferers should look for a model whose blades are coated with nanoparticles to prevent dust buildup, such as those from The Hunter Fan Company. From $119.

    Repaint in Soothing Colors

    Tuscan yellow may be the perfect hue to brighten a dark entryway, but it's not ideal for a restful night?s sleep. A better choice? A calming shade in a cool-color family like blue, green, or purple. To prevent that fresh-paint scent from keeping you alert, choose a low- or zero-VOC paint, such as Benjamin Moore's Natura, Sherwin-Williams's Harmony, and The Freshaire Choice. From $35 per gallon.
