6 Tips to Choosing the Right Colors for Your House

04 May, 2017

Choosing the right colors is no kid’s play. By the right colors, what we essentially mean is deciding on a color scheme (a color palette) for your entire home. It will be the theme. It will be the mood. A lot of thought should go into this process. Not many practice giving so much thought unfortunately. Don’t make that mistake. Deciding on a mood and an ambiance is extremely important. You are not going to repaint the house every other week, so make it count.

undefined

Here are the tips to choosing the right colors for your house that will give you an in-depth primer to end all your confusions.

1. Don’t ruin your home in the experimental phase

People love to destroy their interior right in the experimental phase. Don’t be childish. Take smaller rooms for experimentation.

2. Understand lighting and its effect on color tones

undefinedDifferent types of lighting affect your house’s colors differently. As a general rule of thumb, remember that natural lighting is the best light. It shows the colors in their exact hue and saturation values. After that, everything artificial thing affects the colors differently.
You get warmer shades (more towards red and yellow) with incandescent lights and cooler shades (more towards blue) with fluorescent lights.

3. Color psychology sets the moods

If you know a tad bit about color psychology, then that’s great. If you don’t, do a bit of research on it. If you want the bedroom to be romantic, go for warmer shades like pink. Warmer shades, however, happen to shrink space while cooler shades seem to make the walls appear receding, thus giving the room a more spacious feel.

4. Think, test, get creative and improve, and repeat

Follow this process to get better results:

  • Think before you put colors. What mood do you need? How will lighting affect the room?
  • Test before you put colors. Test it on a paper, canvas, anywhere. Test combinations and color mixtures too.
  • Get creative and improve on what results you get.
  • And, repeat for every room.

5. Decorative finish, textures, patterns, and shaded (layered) colors

Keep these things in mind to arrive at a more beautiful interior composition:

  • A decorative finish adds depth and sophistication. So consider a decorative finish instead of flat colors.
  • Textures are also a good way, but generally discouraged. Textures are good for certain situations.
  • Patterns are more advanced and hard to arrive at. If you can get perfect patterns, then you can enhance the look of your house and make your rooms more useful and appealing visually.
  • Shaded colors are a good optical treat. Use a dark shade at a core pillar, then use a lighter shade for a same width region after it, then even lighter, and so on.

6. Be modern, bold, and expressive

  • Don’t go for traditional looks and color combinations. Be modern.
  • Don’t be afraid to put up something that’s not conventional. It’s your house.
  • Be expressive. Every color sets a mood. And every mood in a room tells a story. Make sure you exploit the expressive nature of colors to the full extent.

Tips on Selecting a Bed

21 April, 2017

Beds are your partners. You need to be alert when picking one. Here are some tips on selecting a bed that will help you a lot.

undefined

Shop for your bed like you shop for nail polish

What this means is that you should not take a decision quickly. Do not be easily sold. Especially, don’t be sold to big features lists, giant supports, or good looks. Always check with multiple retail stores. Retails stores charge much more in general. So, also check the prices on online stores. Read reviews and do some research.

After going through a lot of options, finally narrow down your options and see what fits you best based on the other criteria provided here in the article.

Test with a rest

If you are going to buy a bed, then of course you are buying it for sleeping on it. There is a crucial need to test it by taking an actual rest. Lie down on it. Don’t make it quick, but obviously don’t stretch it out too long.

If you can, then see whether your sleeping patterns go easily with the bed or not. Also test it for any problems you might experience when you’re turning sides. Remember, the bed is going to be a big part of your life. It is something you will crash into. If it is not comfortable, then what good is it?

I would recommend spending at least 15 minutes testing the bed. Most retailers have accommodations for this. If a retailer doesn’t have it and it feels awkward, then still try to sit and bounce a bit at least. You will have some idea. Nevertheless, you can always (especially if you are buying online) return it if it doesn’t suit you.

Do you have lots of stuff in your home?

If the answer is yes, then you should really consider buying a storage bed. Instead of a support, it has storage space. You can add more mattresses on top to increase the comfort, while you store away all the stuff that you rarely need inside it. I have many beds in my life, and a king size storage bed with a wooden headboard was the best one.

How important is space for you?

Ranging from "I don't even care" to "King size is minimum" -- where do you stand? If the size doesn't matter to you then there is no special consideration here, really. But if you are like me then space matters. Even if you sleep single, you need a big enough bed, sometimes, to feel comfortable and to be able to smile yourself to sleep after a tiring day every once a while!

Also, get the sizes right. There are many sizes of beds like king, super king, and emperor. Take your bedroom's size into consideration before making a decision about the size of your bed.

What kind of support do you need?

Some people with physical disabilities, old age, or certain medical conditions need beds with an adjustable base. Some people prefer (or need) extra soft beds that need to have a good support, while yet some people need other features depending on where they live and how they use their bed. Do you love bounce? Do you love longevity? Do you love breathability? Answer these questions and you will get immense help in sorting out the right kind of beds for your sleep.

New bed, new mattress

Whenever you are buying a new bed, you also have to consider buying a new mattress. New mattresses are important, but what is even more important is the compatibility. Not all mattresses go with all kinds and sizes of beds. So you have to be careful here. If you pick the wrong kind of mattress, then you will end up ruining your sleeping time.

How to Keep Your Vacuum Running Like New?

16 April, 2017

Vacuum cleaner repairs can cost you dearly. So although a vacuum cleaner needs very less maintenance for itself, you must give it a bit more to avoid any big repairs.undefined

So, how to keep your vacuum running like new? Here are some simple steps.

1. Clear the dustbin and replace the bags

This is perhaps the clearest way of maintaining your vacuum cleaner. This is also the most overlooked thing. If you donot clean this, the vacuum clear would not be able to collect all the debris and dust. In other words, this affects the efficiency of the vacuum cleaner.

Also clean the bags with warm water and detergent. This is important to avoid serious problems with the bag.

2. The brushes must be cleaned

The brush roll will collect a lot of hair and dust over time. It is your job to clean it. Although fingers are good enough to get rid of stuff stick in the brush, it is a more efficient practice to use a scissor to quickly get rid of threads and hair.

3. Lubricate the bearings

The bearings need to be lubricated for functioning well. The brush will stop rolling well if you don’t frequently lubricate the bearings. That is in fact the chief reason among all the reasons why a vacuum cleaner starts becoming less efficient each passing day.

If you lubricate the bearings frequently, you will keep the brushes rolling well.

4. Caring for the belt

The belt on your brush roll needs to be taken care of as well. Look for any signs of damage. It is generally a good idea to get the belt replaced every few months. Not only the replacement, but you should also pay attention to keeping it in good shape by constantly checking whether there are any wears or tears.

5. Clogs and obstructions

There can be clogs and obstructions that hinder the vacuum cleaner from functioning properly. Check your hose properly and inspect it closely to find out any such problems. You will know that something is stuck when the vacuum cleaner is working at a dramatically slower pace and can’t suck in the debris properly.

6. Cleaning the filter frequently

There is a foam filter that needs proper cleaning every once a while. Although it can be easily cleaned with water and be ready to be put inside again, you’re recommended to let it air dry after washing. This piece can get unusable pretty fast if you don’t handle it well.

7. Do you need a new vacuum cleaner?

This is one more point to think about. After a point, any machinery loses its edge. So although you can maintain your vacuum cleaner to make it run longer and more efficiently, there’s always a time to replace the machinery.
See if the machinery is beyond recovery. One indicator of such bad health is the machine having some problem every once a while to the point it’s all getting very irritating. If it is so, you might want to change your vacuum cleaner.

6 Things to Do On Spring

14 April, 2017

Spring is here, and here’s a collection of 6 things to do on spring!

1. Open the doors to the sun!

undefinedThe first thing you do this spring is open your doors and embrace the sun. Everything from your interior walls to rugs need a proper dose of sunlight for staying problem-free. Your house could really use some sun after the winter months. Let it warm up and let all the wood crack up.

2. Don't neglect your kitchen

Although kitchen improvements and extensions are costly, this spring you can get your kitchen painted in warm colors to suit the ambiance of the world outside!

undefinedRather than adding more compartments or adding more equipment – simply aim to make your kitchen look more beautiful with common hacks. First of all, do a full cleaning. Then see what items and equipment you won’t be needing. Over time, the kitchen becomes the home of a lot of things. It needs constant care. Remove anything you don’t need and you will have a more organized kitchen.

Also take care of cleaning and opening any drains that might be blocked.

3. Inspect your exterior

Only the interiors don't need spring love. You can do some great home improvement if you pay attention to the fragile and trivial details of the exterior of your house. This includes cleaning the roof and chimneys, while scrubbing off any patches on exterior walls and fences.
For roofs, you can use a pair of binoculars to inspect any problem. Or if you prefer the more “handy” way – climb up and do a close inspection.

undefinedExterior walls and fences make up a chief part of the exterior of your house. Make sure they are properly tended to. With them, it’s not short-term problems that can have the heaviest impact. Walls and fences deteriorate over time and over the years, the damage can really add up.

4. Windows test

You really need to cool down the wind coming from outside. In spring, there's no better way of doing it than having perfect windows. Check your windows for any leakage or openings. Consider a fresh layer of priming or paint.

undefinedPerfectly sealed and airtight windows are what you need to block damage from air, wind, and water. Although they don’t cause much problems in the spring season, but they sure can cause trouble anyway.

Also check for any paint residue, metal rust, wood chipping off, or cracks and dents in your windows and the windowsills. Wood needs more care. If you see any problem, get rid of it as soon as possible. These little things can add up quickly and damage your windows in the long term.

Get fresh flowers for your vases

5. Get your stored furniture out!

We all love to store our furniture inside during winter. Whatever you cloaked down that basement, it's the time to let it soak and bathe in the sun's warm rays. You can also take out the furniture in use outside for a couple afternoons.

undefinedYou need that wood to crack up in the sun (not literally). It needs the heat to get rid of all that fungi and bacteria.

6. Do a full house check

How well did your house survive the winter? There's no way of telling that unless you actually pay attention to your house. Do one round of walking around your house and observe what needs replacing, what needs painting, what needs cleaning, and what needs repairing.

undefinedSome common problems might be lurking around your household. For example, these are a few things to look out for:

  • Is your AC working fine? You’ll need it for the months to come.
  • Are your faucets in need of some cleaning? You will find that most of them are. It’s time to give them some attention.
  • Spring comes with a lot of natural growth. Make sure you’re prepared for a beautiful lawn. Trim the trees (like overgrowth around your windows), test the mower, and test your soil for gardening or vegetables. The warm and colorful season for the growth of vivid fruits and vegetables has come.
  • Cracks and the sort can happen a lot over constant negligence, snow, winter winds, or other forces. Get on your roof and do some repairing. Also check for cracks and openings in your exterior and fix them.
  • Your gutters need proper care as well. Clean them well so that they can be useful again in spring.
