Not sure what HIP TIPZ is?  Please click on Our Introduction to find out more.  Now, let's get down to business -it's time to roll:

 

HIP TIPZ #116

If the room you're painting has a bulkhead, paint it the colour of your walls; not the ceiling colour.  This will help to make the ceiling appear higher.

 

HIP TIPZ #117

Make your the corner cupboards in your kitchen more accessible:  install a carousel unit for often-used items.

 

HIP TIPZ #118

The height of your ceiling should determine the width of baseboard you use when finishing your room.  For example, if your room has a 9 foot ceiling, a 6 inch baseboard looks great.

 

HIP TIPZ #119

Give alcoves drama by painting them a darker colour than your walls.  Kick up the 'Wow Factor' a notch more by installing lighting in the alcoves too.

 

HIP TIPZ #120

Blanket throws aren't just for indoors.  Drape one over the arm of your outdoor sofa for a hit of cozy glamour.

Charlene,

These are good points, and not expensive at all.
