Bathroom Renovation and Water Treatment

The renovation of the bathroom is one of the most demanding and complex works when it comes to home adaptation. In today’s fast and stressful life, the room which prior function was providing basic hygienic conditions, is partially taking the features of the living room and bedroom, and is transforming into an intimate zone that has to be functional and well designed, but also must ensure all the prerequisites for rest and relaxation.

It’s pretty tricky to renovate only one part of the bathroom, except when it comes to replacement of the furniture. Any other repair requires certain works, like demolition or drilling the walls, so with the adaptation, it is easier to make a whole renovation. The torn pipe, for example, demands lifting or separation of the plates. Changing of the bathtub also requires complex construction work, which all eventually opens up the opportunity for the whole renovation. If the change of the position of the installation is required, these works are first in line. Sanitation schedule may change but in certain conditions. For example, the significant distance between the elements and vertical drain can cause slow water runoff and frequent clogging.

The bathroom lighting is crucial and requires a lot of planning, especially when it comes to a small bathroom or the one with no windows. It is best to solve it with different lighting: above, on or next to the mirror, embedded in the ceiling, etc. Setting the lighting next to the mirror provides the best light and minimizes shadows. It is important to have general lighting that illuminates the entire space, but also the discreet lighting that creates pleasant atmosphere during the bath time.

It is also necessary to think of the solutions for heating, as well as the ventilation. In most bathrooms, the heating is solved with a radiator in the form of a ladder, which is a highly functional solution, but in recent years, the under floor heating is becoming more and more popular. When it comes to ventilation, if there is no natural one, it is necessary to resolve it with a fan, which will draw moist air from the room.

One of the things to especially consider when renovating the bathroom is the whole house water filter that is installed on the main water line. In its initial phase, sediment pre-filter stops the unnecessary sediments from entering water pipes and is improving the taste and clarity of your water. After passing the first filter, the water goes through an activated carbon filter and prevents the chlorine and heavy metals from spreading in the water pipes. It also keeps the pipes from bacteria, algae, and other dirt. For the most people, safety and cleanness of water are the biggest concern. With the whole house water filter systems, they can be sure it won’t be a problem, and that every faucet in their home will deliver pure and healthy water.

When you have solved the fundamental architectural barriers, at least in theory, it is time to select the floor and wall coverings. These materials should be waterproof and easy to maintain. Classical solution is, of course, the ceramic tiles. A lot of stores also offer ceramic tiles that mimic stone and wood. The standard solutions are changing due to new user needs and provide big progress regarding functionality and comfort.

Remember, a successful adaptation is the result of proper preparation and quality performance.

Interior Design — 6 Expert Tips To Make A Rental Feel Like Home

Interior Design — 6 Expert Tips To Make A Rental Feel Like Home

Designer Natalie Chong shares advice on how to decorate a small rental apartment. See how she made the most of her 755-square-foot space to create a home that’s both comfortable and inviting.

Natalie recommends painting the walls to add personality to a rental, and she opted for three shades to create flow in the small space. She replaced builder basic blinds with drapes for textural interest, and opted for customized big box furniture to serve as decor pieces as well as storage space. Her biggest piece of advice is to avoid buying tiny furniture for a small space — instead, play with scale to keep things interesting. And if you are lucky enough to have an outdoor space, utilize it by covering the concrete with patio furniture and plants.

Home Improvement Tips

Home Improvement Tips

This home improvement tips video is brought to you by: http://homecontractorsblog.com

Are you hesitant about where to begin with your home improvement projects? If you’re unsure on where to start, don’t worry you’re not alone. There are many people like yourself, and with so many improvements that can be done to a home, that’s a completely understandable feeling to have.

The following are some home improvement tips that we’ve prepared for you. Hopefully some if not all of these tips will help to make your home improvement projects that much easier.

1. If you want to replace the siding on your home, be sure to use proper insulation. This will make your siding last longer as well as help reduce your heating and cooling bill. There are several different types available, with varying prices associated with each. With a little research, you can figure out which insulation option is a good match for your budget.

2. Just because a room is lacking in square footage doesn’t mean it has to seem cramped or confined. Allow light to filter in. For example, losing those curtains and going with blinds will work. Simply cleaning the windows could also work. It’s amazing how much bigger a room looks when you take advantage of natural light. Keep your room clutter free and paint the walls with pale colors. Your little room will seem much more spacious quickly.

3. When it comes to home improvements, make sure you realize just how long some things last. A chimney should last around 100 years. A deck can last up to 15 years. A vinyl floor can last between 20 and 30 years, which seems like a long time until you consider the fact that oak flooring can easily last a century. When you’re renovating your home, you should consider these things to decide whether or not a given renovation is worth the effort and expense.

4. When planning a major home renovation project, consider hiring a professional architect or designer to create your plans. If you lack formal training in this area, the plans you create may be heavy on aesthetics and light on functionality. Professional designers will be able to create meaningful plans to construct from, ones that also meet all local building restrictions.

5. If a home improvement is going to come close to a water valve, shut the water down. You really need to know where the shut off valve to the water in your home is located so you can turn it off to work on the sink or other plumbing. Otherwise, you may flood your home!

6. Take local conditions into account when doing a renovation. For instance, if you live where you do not get a lot of warm days, do you really want to install a pool? If your home improvement does not match your local area, most likely you’ll just be pouring money down the drain.

7. Liven up the room with new accessories. It’s truly amazing the amount of difference a few bright pillows or a new wall hanging can make in a room. Get new curtains in a new color, then add new pillows, a lamp and a vase in complementary colors, and the room will seem as if a professional designer did it.

8. A coat of paint can instantly improve the look of your home’s interior and exterior. Paint is your homes first line of defense as well as the most significant factor of curb appeal. To make it the best it can be, really choose your color scheme wisely.

9. Don’t just plunk your money down for the first materials you see. Do some comparison shopping to get the most value for your money. It costs a lot of money to install new flooring and other upgrades. But if you compare prices, you can keep your expenses to a minimum. Shop at discount home supply stores and other outlets that offer the best bargains.

10. A lot of homes lose a considerable amount of heating & cooling through the windows. This can be reduced by equipping large windows with a second glaze. Your heating & cooling bill will be lower and you’ll still be able to have comfort even in the worst temperatures.
