Home Improvement Series - Michael Carman Furniture Gallery

Because furniture can impact your health, your comfort, and your efficiency, it can literally chang your life.  While this realization can make buying furniture a bit challenging, it is essential.  You want to buy furniture that fits, supports and enhances the way you live.

If you are new to buying furniture, or have discovered that the furniture you have isn't helping you here are some suggestions:

1. Furniture is essentially a functional commodity and is used for solving problems related to how your home functions for you.  It is important questions you need to ask yourself before buying any.

2. Along with your needs, there are also constraints when it comes to furnishing.  These constraints could relate to space, health budget or any other special need.  Knowing both your needs and constraints, can help you explore furnishing possiblilities better.  Make this the first and most basic step of your buying process.

Michael Carman of Michael Carman Furniture Gallery in Shell Knob, Mo., is a new store in the area and worthy of taking a look..................

Home Improvement Feature - Bear Creek Nursery & Landscaping

Dreaming of a vegetable or flower garden?  If you’ve never tasted garden-fresh vegetables (lots of people haven’t!), you will be amazed by the sweet, juicy flavors and vibrant textures. There’s absolutely nothing like them, especially if you grow the vegetables yourself—and you can! Remember this: It’s better to be proud of a small garden than to be frustrated by a big one!

One of the common errors for beginners is planting too much too soon and way more than anybody could eat or want. Unless you want to have zucchini taking up residence in your attic, plan carefully. Start small. 

Gordon Powell with Bear Creek Nursery and Landscaping talked to KTHS about the items they offer for gardens and landscaping.......

Home Improvement Feature - Sunfest Market at Holiday Island

Working in the garden can be a shared experience for the family, and instills in children an understanding of the natural cycles of growth which provide lessons of lifelong value. Consider the benefits of growing your own vegetables at home:
- lowers the cost of providing your family with healthy, organic vegetables
- reduces the environmental impact of transporting and warehousing food
- makes your meals more personal, interesting
- connects your family to the natural cycles of weather, growth and renewal
- provides wholesome activity and lasting memories for your children

Any seasoned gardener knows that successful gardening is all about the soil. Once your beds are prepared and the soil is enriched and ready to plant, the bulk of your gardening work is finished.

Our Home Improvement Series features area businesses that can be of great help to you with your Springtime improvements in and around the house.  Pertaining to the garden and houseplants Sunfest Market at Holiday Island has it all.  Linda Boyer was lucky enough to get a tour of the garden center recently..........

Home Improvement Feature - Grandview Custom Woods

Before you start shopping for new kitchen cabinets, make sure you have a well-thought-out plan for your kitchen renovation. You should identify goals and priorities. You also should have a clear vision of what your new kitchen will look like, after exploring various kitchen designs and layouts and planning out space and storage. Finally, you should have a budget to work with.

Considerations When Choosing Kitchen Cabinets

  • How long do you plan on staying in the home?
  • What improvements are standard for similar homes in your area?
  • What type of kitchen layout do you plan on using?
  • What is your budget?
  • Do you have exact measurements of appliances that will be involved in the new design?

Tim and Beth Trowbridge at Grandview Custom Woods are featured on our Home Improvement series airing through this month.  KTHS talked to Beth Trowbridge and asked her some pertinent questions about their process for installing new cabinets in a home........

Home Improvement Feature - Big Rock Landscaping and Recycle

The month of May is National Home Improvement Month.  KTHS has been featuring local businesses that can assist you with your various home improvements this Spring.

Our final business Home Improvement feature is Big Rock Landscaping and Recycle on Hwy. 62 (Sportsman's Stretch) between Berryville and Eureka Springs, west of the Kings River.  For years it was Johnson's Landscaping before Nick Handley bought the business. 

We talked to Nick about the types of services he offers....

There are many types of mulch out there, from plastics and cocoa hulls to wood chips and more. It's important to do your research so you know what kind is best for your yard. 

Home improvement, home renovation and remodeling is the process of renovating or making additions to one's home. Home improvement can be projects that upgrade an existing home interior (such as electrical and plumbing), exterior (masonry, concrete, siding, roofing), or other improvements to the property (i.e. garden work or garage maintenance/additions).

While "home improvement" often refers to building projects that alter the structure of an existing home, it can also include improvements to lawns, gardens, and outdoor structures, such as gazebos and garages. It also encompasses maintenance, repair and general servicing tasks. Home improvement projects generally have one or more of the following goals: comfort, maintenance and repair, additional space, saving energy and safety and preparedness.

KTHS will be featuring local businesses that can help you with your home improvement needs this Spring and Summer. One of those is Williams Tractor in Berryville. Casey Stewart and Ben Thompson tell us about the products, equipment and implements they carry that can make your work easier......
