What Houzz contributors are saying:
4. Not emptying your vacuum cleaner enough. Most of us rely on vacuum cleaners when it comes to cleaning our homes, so it’s only fair to look after this hardworking machine. Don’t just empty out the bag when it’s ready to explode; an overload of dust, dirt, hair and other particles can reduce suction power. Instead, change the bag when it’s about two-thirds full.Tip: Tangled hair and threads can burn out the motor of your vacuum. To prevent this, unwind or snip them. After all, a brush roll that doesn’t turn, doesn’t clean.
The rug was a key to the room; Bensen knew her clients wanted color and were drawn to Turkish rug designs. She found this one on Etsy, and her clients loved her choice. A large fiddleleaf fig adds life and color in the corner, while swing-arm sconces provide plenty of reading light. “They were not interested in having floor and table lamps over here, so I found them some wall-mounted sconces with the industrial style they liked,” she says. She also knew they’d need a large-format piece of art to occupy the space over the sofa. “Often clients are intimidated by choosing art and go with something abstract or a pretty landscape, but Amy was totally up for finding quirky pieces,” she says.Photo: Girl Smoking by Lita Bosch, Photos.com; ceiling fan: RH Teen; sofa and sconces: CB2; leather chair: Pottery Barn
