Guest Post: The Most Surprising Design Ideas Currently Trending

Last year, I posted about some of the best online design firms that are changing the interior design landscape for the average person. They are accessible and affordable companies that assist the average homeowner (or renter!) with making their space Pinterest-worthy. 

Recently, I came in contact with another fantastic interior design company, DecorAid. They provide free consultations and affordable, fixed-priced fees along with great, trade discounts on furniture. Further, they have amazing talent that have worked at some of the top, celebrity firms. 

If you want your home to have that straight-off-the-Elle-Decor-page look, then DecorAid can help at a fraction of the cost! Honestly, I might be saving up my own pennies to try it out! 

Today, they are partnering with The Little Realtor as a guest poster to discuss their take on current design trends - the intriguing, the bold, and maybe just plain odd!

Common Rowhouse Design Problems & Our Favorite Solutions

Today I want to talk about the beloved Philly rowhouse. A charming, but often modern-design-flawed bit of architecture that is the most common home type in our city. 
Rowhouses come in all shapes, sizes, and eras here but some carry more issues than others when relating to modern living. So I wanted to share some of the concerns I hear about most as a real estate agent, and some of the best ways to work around those design flaws. 
The Trinity Staircase 
The trinity home is generally a 3-story home with one (maybe two) rooms per floor, connected by a tiny, spiral staircase. While generally the tininess of these homes isn't an issue to buyers who are looking in a certain price range or don't need a larger home, the steep, winding stairs are often a dealbreaker. 
Tip #1 - Shore up the stairs. Tightness is one thing, but if the stairs are also really soft or slanted in one direction, it can make the walk up or down all the more difficult. If you need to shore up or replace the tre…

Those pesky extra rooms...

Ok, its a pretty first-world problem, but there plenty of people who live in suburbia (or even in the city!) who have a room or two that they just don't use. Often, its a formal dining room or extra bedroom, but if you are the owner of such a room, you may wonder why you are paying for so much unused space!

Today, I'm walking through some of the best uses of dead space in your house and how to make it you new favorite room!

The Formal Dining Room
This is the most commonly "complained-about" space in the suburban home. While we still like to entertain, a lot of people aren't crazy about a whole, extra, (often large) room thats only used on a handful of occasions throughout the year. Unless you have family dinners there, this is likely a space that you are taxed on & heating that sits vacant 350 days of the year.

One of my personal favorite ways to reuse this room is to use it as a craft/workspace. The room can keep a large dining table and chairs that can be u…
