A workstation for cooking, a space for family meals, and a socializing zone, your kitchen can be your home’s special room. Families are always looking for new ways to make their kitchens warmer and more inviting. A dash of colour, a few tweaks and some value additions can enhance the appeal of the space, and draw admiration from guests! Here are some tips. A multi-purpose family kitchen: Make your kitchen feel more welcoming for all family members, from your spouse to your teen and tiny tots. You can achieve this with a couple of additions. How about a window seat where you can gaze outside or dream away whilst sipping coffee on cold mornings, read a book, or watch your kids play in the garden. You can create a wonderful window seat with throw pillows and a comfortable mattress. Your kitchen can also be a frequent homework spot for your kids, or a quiet work zone for you/your spouse on days you bring work home. Well upholstered sloping arm chairs work fine.

Seven Special Mugs

A mug can make a statement about personality as much as clothing or accessories. A unique mug can be an icebreaker or a conversation piece at the office water cooler, over your master’s degree dissertation desk, or with guests at home. Below are some examples of attention-grabbing mugs sure to break up the ordinary morning routine just a bit: The Melting Iceburg Mug: The melting iceberg mug features an image on the exterior of the mug that changes with the temperature. The mug has a second layer of heat-sensitive ink that reveals the hidden image when a hot beverage is poured in. The image of the iceberg is replaced with water, simulating melting due to global warming. It’s a nifty little novelty that’s also an environmental reminder. The Face Mug: The face mug has a nook in the open mouth for placing food, such as cookies or crackers. A doughnut produces the most humorous effect because it only partially fits. This mug looks comical even when there’s nothing in the nook. The Disappearing Civil Liberties Mug: The disappearing civil liberties mug has the Bill of Rights printed around the outside. When hot liquid is poured in, some of the individual rights disappear. As the liquid cools or is consumed, the words reappear. It’s a subtle and satirical comment on the effects of the Patriot Act. My Cuppa Coffee Mug:...
