The laundry room is probably the most lackluster part of the home. In older homes, it’s often just a corner in the basement that has poor lighting and nowhere to hang or fold clothes. In newer homes, the laundry room is usually very minimalistic. If you dread doing laundry, it could be because your laundry room leaves a lot to be desired. Check out the laundry room remodel essentials you need to include if you’re planning to redo your laundry room.

Housing is an important source of economic growth. As of the second quarter of 2013, housing’s share of gross domestic product (GDP) was 15.6%, with home building yielding 3.1 percentage points of that total. RFI is effectively the measure of the home building and remodeling contribution to GDP. Housing Services includes gross rents and utility payments. Historically, RFI has averaged roughly 5% of GDP while housing services have averaged between 12% and 13%, for a combined 17% to 18% of GDP. These shares tend to vary over the business cycle. Good to know!

Every now and then we come across a simple but brilliant device that makes our jobs easier and provides a great solution for home owners.

It is simple to install, looks great, is made with strong carbon steel and comes in four finishes. So no more bumpers installed onto your beautiful floors and no more missing rubber caps.
