Heat is not the only thing that rises during the summer, our electric bill goes through the roof with it. Especially with most of us working from home now, we have been using more appliances than usual and for longer periods. Hence, apart from beating the heat, we also need to find ways to beat the ever-increasing electric bills. Lucky for you, we have some easy tips to help save money and the planet at the same time.
Yep, the fun time’s over! Now that summer’s coming to an end, it’s almost time to bid adieu to your backyard buddy until the next barbecue season. But it wouldn’t be fair to your grill-friend if you didn’t it a proper farewell before sending it away for a whole year. Those flavourful chars on your burgers and steaks, that you look so cool flipping, produce carbon deposits on different parts of your grill (grates, hood, interior of the firebox, burner tube). Grease/sauces can stick to these deposits, creating home for bacteria, and causing the grill to heat unevenly.
Well, who doesn’t like to get a little crafty every now and then? After watching tons of those DIY videos, I get motivated to create something cool and fun using the “easy” steps they suggest, only to come to the conclusion hours later that maybe I’m not as artistic as I thought. If you’re relating to me so far instead of going “what is this person talking about?”, check out this list of some really cool and easy to make DIY projects that you can take on this summer, by yourself or with your kids.
This may seem like a foreign concept to some, however to others redesigning or configuring your home for wellness may be exactly what you need to focus on this spring. With the workforce shifting significantly to work from home flexibility and lockdowns continuing in Ontario, we find ourselves in our homes more than ever before.
The year 2020 saw a significant shift in the habits of families – less travel meant more time at home and a focus on how our homes could help us adapt to the significant changes going on around us. This shift also saw a huge increase in people buying and building new homes. Though many homes do come with appliances, there are times when they do not or you look to replace them. Complete kitchen renovations also usually require new appliances – depending on how things are designed.
If it's been a while since you shopped for a range (stove) for your home, things may look a bit different. The industry is often changing, adjusting to meet consumer needs, and adding in some pretty cool features like wi-fi and built in digital in recipes.

Gas ranges seem to be all the rage with professional chefs and avid home cooks. You'll hear them discussed at length at home renovation conferences and see them being used on all your favourite cooking competitions and may wonder, what's all the hype?

We know you don’t need a reminder of what’s going on in the world these days, but we wanted to address a very important and relevant issue that is affecting many retailers and consumers as a result of the covid-19 outbreak. Many manufacturers around the world faced multi-month long shutdowns, reduced staff numbers and faced new regulations when they were allowed to reopen once again. It is with no doubt that when this occurred the world saw significant decreases in production on all levels.
It’s no secret that the world has been on a cleaning frenzy since Covid-19 hit. We’re doing our best to wash our hands, stay safe and sanitize. Many of you may be looking at you home differently as well, wondering the best ways to keep it cleaner, longer.
Now that the weather is finally warm enough for all of us to get to enjoy our backyards again, we wanted to help you get your gardens ready. Nothing beats grilling up some tasty treats in your own personal sanctuary.
