Match the area rugs

There are plenty of area rugs that are currently sold in the xafs today, and choosing the one that would be totally appropriate for your home can be taxing. Nevertheless, though, every one of them might be beautiful for your eyes, there are only few of these area rugs that would definitely go with the furniture, fixture, and the overall theme and look of your home. The Process of Looking for Area Rugs 1. The size of the area rugs should complement to that of your room. Before you actually decide to purchase the area rugs, you have to consider first where you are going to put it. This is because the size of the rugs will be dependent on the measurement of the available space. There are floor measuring tools that you can buy in a home depot. If you dont know how to use it, you can ask help from a family member or even from a professional.
Choose area rugs that are earth friendly. There are various kinds of fabrics used in creating area rugs, but just to stick with the eco-friendly ones, you may want to select those that are made of sea grass, sisal, and wool. They are made of natural materials, and there are no synthetic chemicals that have been utilized to bring out their current look and feel. 3. Are rugs with small hair are a lot better than those with the long ones. Are rugs with long hairs appear to be grander and more sophisticated than those with short ones. However, if you want something thats very easy to maintain, you would go for the latter. Dirt and grit would often stick hard into the hair of the rug, and during vacuuming, you have greater success of removing them from the short hair. Moreover, ticks and other microorganisms are much harder to see and find in long-haired rugs. They can, however, cause health problems to your dogs, who may love to roll over, sleep, or even play in your rugs.
 Match the area rugs with the overall interior design of your home. You may want to achieve some harmony with your area rugs and the entire decoration of your home. Perhaps you can match the materials of your seats with those of the rugs. It would be ideal if you can bring a sample of the fabric, or perhaps take a snapshot of the room or area where the rug is going to be placed. You can hold it while youre picking out the rugs, or you can show it to the sales staff who can recommend you the one that fits the space the most. 5. The design of the rugs should be based on the focal point. If you want your area rugs to be the star in the room, you must select the one with a medallion or a solo intricate design at the center. However, if you have other central pieces, such as a fireplace or a large furniture, the most ideal area rugs would be those with repetitive patterns, like squares or rectangles.



Use green or pink

Are you still thinking about a color for those walls you've been putting off painting? Oyster White, Navajo White, Cielo Blanco, Off White are but a few variations that builders use when painting the interior of most homes. That while these colors look clean and crisp when we first move in, it doesn't take long before we tire of the look and want something with a bit more pizazz. Having said that, most people are a little afraid to step out of the standard for fear of not liking their color choice and having to re-do the process back to its original, boring Off White. After 25 plus years in the Paint Trade, It still amazes me when a room gets a facelift with color. For around $50.00 you can create a look that has a designer flare. Your old furniture can even look new again. So don't spend a whole lot of time thinking about the work involved. The pay off is far greater. So where do you start?
How do you go about picking the right color? My first suggestion would be to go with a tinted neutral color. Such as something in the gray or creme colors. Stay away from choosing colors that are deep or rich. You don't want a startling effect nor do you want to date the room. I'm sure they won't create the look your trying to achieve and you'll become tired of it quickly. These deep colors will also create additional work for you. It's been my experience that the darker colors will require a minimum of two coats, sometimes more. However, when you go to your local home improvement store you will be faced with a sea of color swatches - hundreds of versions of basic beige and gray to choose from. So before you go, consider these steps to choosing the right color for you. Now when you head on over to your local paint store or home improvement center you can become overwhelmed with all the variations of creme and gray. There can be hundreds of each.
 So before you go, take a good look around the room your going to repaint. See if you can't find a light color somewhere in the room that you can take with you. Such as a color in the background of a piece of fabric on say a couch cushion or lampshade. If you like the feel of a warm and cozy room - think of fireplaces, brown leather and sunsets - then you'll want to start with a beige tone. Now, consider your furniture and accessories. What colors do you see? If you have a lot of black or navy you may wish to choose a beige with orange or pink undertones to keep the look warm. If you have browns or reds in your furniture, select a cooler beige with ashy tones to avoid 'overheating' your room. If you prefer a cooler, airy look - chrome, glass and shades of icy blue - then select gray tones. Some stores will have a 'true gray' color swatch which you can use to compare with their designer selections. On comparison you will notice that each gray has undertones. Some will have blue or lavender tones, others may have green or even a hint of pink. Using the same guide as stated above, identify the main colors of furniture and accessories in the room.
Use green or pink toned greys with cool toned furnishings to avoid it from feeling like an ice box. Use blue or lavender undertones in rooms with warmer colored furnishings. If you are really torn between beige or gray, than the easiest color to work with is green. Keeping it in a muted tone will make it very easy to live with, and will work with most color palates. Now, If all of the above guidelines only further confuse you, you can simply go to the paint store and pick up as many different color chips as you like, bring them home and make your decision there. I know it's an added trip you'll have to make but what better location to make your decision than from the comfort of home? Picking and painting your rooms with your choice of color will bring you the results your looking for and a sense of accomplishment when you see the finished product. Remembering that you'll get this makeover for less than the cost of a good meal at your favorite eating place.



Regular maintenance

Summer is here and in many parts of the country the use of air-conditioning is considered a necessity. In fact, one of the factors allowing the US to have a high productivity rate is the use of air-conditioning. Without air-conditioning the summer environment in many parts of the country is too unbearable to accomplish much, if any, work. A big complaint during the summer months concerns the cost of running these machines; they tend to be expensive to maintain and purchase.
Fortunately, there are some tips you can use to help reduce this cost considerably. Start to save this summer by following a few pointers. 1. Turn off the Air-conditioning once in a while. Does the air-conditioning always have to be on? Consider turning off the air-conditioning unit during cooler times such as early morning. Opening the windows and feeling the natural air can be refreshing and energizing. Schedule the air-conditioning to be turned on mainly during times of the day when the weather is too hot. If you have more than one unit you could switch use between them depending on your need.
 Regular maintenance This can greatly increase the performance of your air-conditioning units. Any cost of regular maintenance is outweighed by the saving on the operations for your air-conditioning units.. Any decrease in an air-conditioners performance means it eats more electricity just to maintain the same temperature it normally keeps. Clean filters and maintenance of air-conditioning units are vital to saving money on their use.
 Turn off the air-conditioning unit 30 minutes before leaving Some people turn off their air-conditioning units just as they are about to leave. The fact is, you can turn off your air-conditioning units well before leaving as it takes about 30 minutes for the temperature of the room to start being uncomfortable. 4. Choose the right kind of air-conditioning. There is a direct relationship between choosing the right kind of air-conditioning for your room and saving money on electricity costs. If you are trying to air-condition a small room, then a smaller less power consuming air-conditioner would be sufficient. Installing a larger air-conditioner which eats up more energy would just be overkill and make you would spend more than you need. Implement the above suggestions to keep cool and save your money to spend on something more fun this summer than an electric bill.
