If your new home comes with a softening system or you are thinking of installing one to combat particularly hard water there are some differences you will need to account for that you may not expect. In fact, you might even be using tactics to combat hard water in your current household and not even realize it!

So what is soft water?

Hard water has high concentrations of magnesium and calcium in particular. Whereas soft water has little to none leaving only de-ionized sodium.

One of the first things, and arguably the most important, you need to know about living with soft water is that it is not recommended as your main supply of drinking water. Soft water is very high in sodium which in addition to the typical American diet being high in sodium can lead to increased risk of high blood pressure, heart attacks and stroke.

I donít say this to scare you! Usually, water softening systems have a bypass valve that allows you to choose which appliances gain access to which water type.

This means that in most cases your kitchen sink should have access to the hard water supply.

If you arenít familiar with benefits of soft water you are probably wondering why have it all.  

But benefits there are!

Hard water is tough on plumbing, appliances and even clothing. Those high concentrations of calcium and magnesium build up and cause havoc. They can even make clothing dingey and surfaces like your bathtub difficult to get clean.

What this means is that with soft water you donít have to spend as much time cleaning/scrubbing the effects left behind by hard water. And you even can, and should, use less soap. This is most important to keep in mind with your washing machine and dishwasher. Soap can suds up much easier in soft water. So when there is too much soap it leads to too many bubbles and this leads to damage to your machine and even leakage over time.

In addition to using less soap, you will find you will need less, or even none, of ďboosterĒ products like Borax and Oxiclean. This is because these products are actually water softening agents and help keep soap ďstickingĒ to clothing after itís attracted up all the dirt.

Your appliances and plumbing will also have a longer life thanks to the lack of magnesium and calcium building up inside pipes and hoses. This is true for your water heater, washing machine, dishwasher and even smaller appliances like your coffee pot.

If youíre thinking of having a softening system installed, have your water levels tested first. They might not be so high that an entire system is necessary. For the most part, and with some research, you can find other solutions to combat hard water just as well!

Houses today are built larger than ever. In spite of all the extra rooms, homeowners still have one common complaint: not enough storage space.

When house hunting, buyers often name storage space as one of their key concerns. As nest-makers, we often find it difficult to part ways with toys for our kids, exercise machines that are collecting dust, or old appliances that ďstill workĒ but no longer worked for us. That leaves homeowners with two options: rent a storage facility or make room.

Taking on an extra monthly bill just to store things that you arenít using isnít an idea that sits well with most homeowners who are already inundated with monthly expenses. But how can you create more space in your home than you already have? The answer lies somewhere up near the ceiling.

In this article, weíll talk about the vertical space in your home and how to take advantage of it without making things appear cluttered.

When and when not to use vertical space

Before we give you vertical storage tips, first letís talk about where you donít want to stack the boxes high.

Rooms where you have guest and the places in your home where you spend the most time arenít the ideal place for vertical storage. The living room, bathrooms, and bedrooms are all places where you need room to breathe. We often recommend light colors, open windows, and mirrors to improve the usage of space in these rooms. However, there are other places in your home that arenít frequented as often.

ďWhere am I going to put this thing?Ē

Thatís a questions many of us ask ourselves when we make a new purchase. Letís start outside the house and work out way in, hitting all of the best areas to store things.

The garage or shed

If you have a shed or garage, odds are thereís a lot of space up toward the ceiling you arenít using. A good way to take advantage of this is to use shelving and hooks for your tools.

If youíre a cyclist but canít figure out where to store your bikes during the winter, consider buying hooks so that you can store them up out of the way of the more useful winter items like shovels and snow blowers.

Kitchen storage

Kitchen cabinets can get cluttered easily. Inside your cabinets, try using stacking shelves to make it easier to stack high things like plates and bowls. For frequently used utensils, pots, and pans, and knives, consider installing a hook board on the wall above your counter. This will open up room in your cabinets and make your frequently used kitchen tools more accessible.

Bathroom storage

The bathroom closet can be a scary place. It is often home to countless cleaning objects, dirty laundry, towels, and more.

One great way to open up a lot of space in the bathroom closet is to hang laundry baskets on the interior of the closet door, or to hang mops, sweepers, and vacuums on the interior of the door for easy access.

Now that you know the benefits of vertical storage, think about how you can use it in your home to save space.
