Who doesn’t enjoy the smell of blooming flowers, the sight of trees getting their leaves back, and the perfect weather for an outdoor picnic?

We have compiled here a checklist for you that will cover the most important things to prepare your home for Spring and the following Summer.

Let’s get to work!

Preparing Your Oven For The Holidays

The holiday season is upon us and we could not be more excited about it. But as usual, the holidays bring several tasks for us to complete before we can comfortably entertain our guests and one of these tasks is getting your oven ready. Since ovens are one of the busiest appliances during the holiday season, it’s best to properly clean and prepare it before it begins. We know it’s the last thing that you would want to think about during this magical time but trust us, it’s going to prove quite helpful later when you’re preparing the holiday meals for your family and friends.


7 Surprising Functions of a Microwave!

The microwave has got to be one of the most convenient and useful appliances in our kitchen. It saves us time, energy, and the trouble of washing extra dishes. But if you’re only using your microwave to re-heat your food and beverages, make popcorn, or those late-night instant noodles, you’re not utilizing its full potential. Below we have outlined seven amazing uses of a microwave, that will not only surprise you but will also make your life easier.


Ways to Save on Your Energy Bill

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.


Cleaning Your Barbecue Grill

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.


DIY Projects You Should Try This Summer

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.


Designing Your Home for Wellness

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.


Buying New Appliances for Your New Home

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.


Range Types Decoded

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. Below we've broken down the various style types of ranges you can now purchase.
