Murphy Beds: Double the Use of a Guest Room image

With the holidays approaching and family and friends coming to visit, many of us suddenly find ourselves scrambling to find space and bedding for out-of-town guests. Having a spare room is convenient for times like these, but rather than having a room that’s really only used when you have overnight guests, you can hide a bed in any room and instantly double its usefulness. Murphy beds are a space-efficient solution for anyone who wants an easy and aesthetically pleasing way to turn any room into a guest room. They fold out from the wall (either lengthwise or widthwise) when needed, and when they’re not in use, they fold right back up to be easily disguised as stylish cabinets or closets. Gone ...

We did it again! I’m thrilled to announce that McKee Closet Organizing and McKee Organizing Services both won the Angie’s List Super Service Award, reflecting a year of great reviews from our customers.

At the Pittsburgh Home & Garden Show last week, one of the most popular aspects of our booth was the compact ironing board! You can see it this KDKA Pittsburgh Today Live segment. This was partially because it discretely folded up into a drawer and also because some of our visitors unsure what it was. This inspired me to do a little bit of research on ironing. Turns out that Less than 29.7% of Americans still iron their clothes on a regular basis. This makes sense now that most fabrics have polyester and cotton components. This blend was created to reduce the need to iron and the term ‘permanent press’ was born. This switch towards ironless fabrics was somewhat commemorated ...

Halloween: Trick or Treat Alternatives standard

It is that time of year again where ghouls and gluttony rule. The time any vague notion of nutritional plans are thrown out the window and are replaced with pillowcases full of candy and sugar. A glint of greed glows In the eyes of otherwise mannerly children. Parents begin to actually steal from their children when their backs are turned and the lights are out and some existing behaviors exasperated by all that goo sky rocket! The alternatives? Can you bear to be the neighbor that is passing out granola bars? Would any fruit or homemade treat land in the trash in today’s suspicious world? It is a vicious cycle. It makes me ask the question, what makes Halloween fun? Is ...

Keeping it Green: Halloween Costumes standard

What was your most favorite Halloween costume you ever wore? Was it one you bought or one you put together creatively? Sometimes the best memories are made when you just make do because the pressure is off and it’s time to have fun.
