You have probably noticed the new trend of recent homes and offices with walls that make open space stand out even with the barest of ornaments and sparse electronics. What do they all have in common? WALLPAPERS.
There are several benefits to using wallpaper over simply painting a wall in your home or office. Perhaps, the most obvious benefit of using wallpaper is the huge variety of decorating options you have. With wallpaper, you can choose from hundreds of patterns, colors, and designs. Some wallpapers can be painted, allowing you to put some texture in the room while still adding your favorite paint color. You can even vary the way the wallpaper is placed in the room. Some rooms look great with a wallpaper border in the room, while others look best with a full wallpapering. As a homeowner, the wallpaper becomes an extension of your personality.
For rooms where the walls are prone to get dirty, wallpaper is a great option as most of today’s wallpapers are coated so that they wipe clean from common household marks! Also besides being easy to clean, the patterns on the paper will help hide dirt and smudges. This makes your wall covering more durable than some paints, which fade over repeated scrubbings.
Finally, wallpaper can hide blemishes in the wall’s plaster far better than a coat of paint. There are many benefits to wallpaper. The key is to get the right wallpaper for the job!

If you’re getting things ready for family dinner or having guests for the holidays, you might want to know how to set a table properly. For casual events, one needs just a basic table setting: cutlery (fork, knife, and spoon), a dinner plate, a water glass, and a napkin.
Basic Table Setting Instructions
- Put the dinner plate on the table.
- Lay the napkin to the left of the plate.
- Place the fork on the napkin.
- To the right of the plate, place the knife closest to the plate, blade pointing in. Place the spoon to the right of the knife. (Note: The bottoms of the utensils and the plate should all be level.)
- Place the water glass slightly above the plate, in between the plate and the utensils.
