HIP TIPZ #176
Installing hardwood in your condo? Make sure you check the By-laws of your Condominium Corporation first. You might need to install a soundproofing barrier underneath it, if in fact wood floors are even allowed. Check first.
HIP TIPZ #177
To help remove carpet dents after moving a heavy piece of furniture, place an ice cube over the area. Once the ice starts to melt, gently lift the carpet pile with a small fork. Use care though.
HIP TIPZ #178
Organize your collections by grouping items of the same colour together if you're looking for a uniform look. Of course most of your collections will be packed up though if you're trying to sell your home - right?
HIP TIPZ #179
Do you have some leftover pieces of flagstone from your patio installation? Use a piece beside your BBQ as a trivet for pots just off the side burner. It's functional and attractive.
HIP TIPZ #180
Plant various shades of green perennials to create a monochromatic garden. To add some interest if you find it too boring, pop in a few white annual flowers for a hit of colour.
