How to Decorate Your Rental Home With Mirrors

Mirrors work wonders in a rental space. They create a space to check your appearance before your dash out the door in the morning, they add light and size to any sized space, and they even act as a decor element. Here are just a few great places to add mirrors in your rental.

  • Above the nightstand. Add matching mirrors above your nightstands to create the illusion of extra depth in the bedroom.
  • Behind the dresser. If your dresser doesn’t come with an attached mirror, create a sort of vanity space of your own by hanging a decorative mirror behind it.
  • In a stairwell. If you have a set of stairs in your apartment, create a gallery wall of mismatched mirrors up the length of the staircase.
  • Across from a window. Maximize the light in a room by placing a large mirror directly across from a window.
  • On the kitchen cabinets. Cut mirror panes to fit right within the borders of your kitchen cabinets, then attach them with removable adhesive.
  • In a closet. Hang a full-length mirror on the back of a regular closet door to make it feel like a luxurious dressing room.

The Kings Contrivance Restaurant: Fine Dining in a Classy Establishment

Located in the former Macgill family mansion on a colonial-era land grant, The Kings Contrivance bills itself as the finest restaurant in Howard County. You can be the judge of that lofty claim by making the trip to the Columbia establishment.

The elegant venue is a popular spot for wedding receptions, business dinners, and the like. Yelp reviewers say that The Kings Contrivance is popular among the older crowd – most of its regulars are senior citizens. However, anyone is welcome to dine here. When locals describe The Kings Contrivance, they say it’s the perfect spot to celebrate Valentine’s Day or your older relatives’ birthdays.

Popular dishes here include the jumbo lump crab cakes, the roasted duck breast, the filet mignon forestiere, and the English trifle. If you’d like to try something else, there are plenty of other options on the menu.

Beautify Your Bathroom With These Easy Tips

Did you know that by adding a few homey touches, you can make your bathroom feel much more luxurious? Here are a few ways to transform your rental bath into a spa-quality retreat.

  • Add fluffy towels. Investing in a new set of thick, plush bath towels is one of the best things that you can do for your bathroom. If you don’t have a set color scheme, classic hotel white always looks great.
  • Incorporate baskets. Add attractive wicker baskets or wooden crates to clear away clutter and add a soft, rustic effect.
  • Add fresh flowers. Don’t overlook the bathroom when it comes to greenery. Add a vase of fresh flowers or a low-light plant to help clean the air.
  • Add floating shelves. If you still need additional storage, add small floating shelves along a bare wall.
  • Light candles. Finally, light some great smelling candles along the bathtub or toilet and settle in for a relaxing bubble bath.

D.C.'s Museum of Natural History is a must-see attractions, both for District residents and their out-of-town visitors.
