    Hello Everyone, My Bedroom light seems to been getting dim then going back to bright then dim every few mins I'm not sure how to source this issue or what's going on. I live in Manitoba, Canada and there's a breaker that controls everything downstairs by deep freezer. I haven't...
  4. Windows and Doors
    Our basement has windows (used to be exterior) that go into another room that was added on. Would it be considered a legal egress window if I build out a bedroom in the basement and use the existing window as an egress (size meets code) if it's not going directly outside, but rather into another...

    I want to put up shelves that would circumvent the entire (small) bedroom but one of the walls has a closet that stretches across the entire wall. Can I put regular L-shaped brackets on the top of the shelves so that the shelf would essentially be upside down? would it pull the bracket from the...

    Hello everyone, it's been a while since I've posted on forums, and the first post on this one in particular. Anyway, we have a project and are unsure of how to proceed, and this seemed like a good place to ask for help! I have an addition off of the side of my house, currently closed to the...

    What is the best placement for a smoke/CO detector in a bedroom? Ideally I would like the center of the room, however, we have a ceiling fan that also uses CFL bulbs in each of the bedrooms. All three doors for the bedrooms on the level are within four feet of each other. I have a smoke/CO...

    Hi there, I'm excited to be here! I just repainted my bedroom this beautiful ice blue: Iceberg by Sherwin Williams. I love it. The trim and door are white. The carpet is a medium shade of gray berber. I feel stuck. I've spent over a dozen hours over the last couple weeks browsing online...

    I want to repaint a bedroom that used to be part of our attic. It is large with lots of angles and is not well lighted. We have a bottom portion that is about 3' all the way around with the walls angled upward. I would love to use a coastal blue color. I am thinking of a deeper blue on the...

    I recently moved into a new rental apartment in New York City. My bedroom used to be the front living room, so it's huge, but it's separated from the den/kitchen area by a very wide doorway, which currently has two bifold closet doors. The doors are paper thin and don't reach the floor beneath...

    We have noisy neighbors who are keeping us awake at night. Since we're remodeling the master bedroom anyway, we want to suppress sound in its two exterior walls, as well as one interior wall (plus one exterior wall in the adjoining master bath). The bedroom gets cold in the winter and hot in the...

    Hello, I am moving into a loft bedroom in about a week. I wanted to know some ideas on how to decorate it. Most of my furnishing for inside the room are modern dark woods. What I am mainly concerned about is privacy as my room is right by the front door of the entrance of the apartment...

    I have been dealing with hand me downs my whole life and my bedroom is proof of that. I want to go with a serene bedroom with Feng Shui inspiration.
