black double pocet doors with glass

Interior doors can bring dramatic change to any room, creating quieter space and adding privacy. A pocket door is a type of interior door that offers excellent solutions to people with small rooms and open-plan spaces that need more privacy. These stylish, practical, and space-saving doors have long been popular because they “disappear” into a wall. So there’s no swinging door in either adjoining room. Pocket doors should ideally glide easily on the overhead tracks to open up your space, whether small or massive.

I don’t think I’m alone in thinking that designing a kitchen is an overwhelming undertaking. I’m an interior designer and even I find it stressful to iron out all of those details. So, when it comes time to design a kitchen I always like to partner with a kitchen designer to make sure I’m remembering all of those little details. For my personal home project, I fell in love with a cabinet style and color from Diamond Brands which is a division of Masterbrand and is currently available at Lowes. Like everyone else I have been at Lowes tackling many home improvement projects, but I had never designed a kitchen with them before. I was excited to get the project going and work with a Lowes kitchen designer! They eat, sleep, dream kitchens! I went to my favorite Lowes in Hicksville, NY one evening to check out the cabinet doors

These words hit home like crazy, as my mother and her death last summer still hang heavy over me. I can’t make peace with the feelings of pain and sadness, the injustice of it all, even my own guilt that I wasn’t able to really be there during her final year of life, thanks to Corona. I held her hand in the end but still. It wasn’t enough for me. It wasn’t enough for her, she didn’t understand why I wasn’t by her bedside in the hospital for a year, why I was only doing video calls and not there. Her dementia didn’t allow her to understand what Covid, lockdowns and restrictions did to keep me away from her. I still feel so much sadness around it all, like it happened yesterday.

What on earth is wrong with me? It’s been NINE MONTHS. Why does it feel so fresh?

Roof disasters can be frightening and stressful especially when they occur suddenly and, often, at the worst possible time.

Fortunately, anyone who faces a roof emergency is not alone, many metropolitan areas have roofers who offer 24/7 emergency roof services (like Atlanta Roofing Specialists) and can apply emergency measures to temporarily stop further damage until proper roof repairs can be applied.
