Color is one of life's most sensual pleasures. Many people love the beauty of a long emerald green lawn, a vivid turquoise sky, a dawn filled with hints of violet and deep orange. Many homeowners look for ways to bring colors into their home. Color accomplish many goals. Colors are a great way to bring a lot of personality. It's easy to paint a room a bright shade of sunny yellow that's always welcome any day of the year. When it comes to using color, it's a good idea to think about all areas of the home before starting. Every single room has something special that makes it stand out.

An Entire Home Plan

One way to use color is to create a plan. For example, if you want your home to give a playful and bold impression, you can consider either painting all of the walls a different color or painting all of the walls white so you can accent the room with loud pops of color in the form of decorations. The overall plan should include every space in the home including the bathrooms and the stairways. Each area should have a connection that brings the person to the next space. For example, if you paint all the areas of the different colors, it's helpful to think about a specific color palette that from a specific part of the color wheel. Using varied shades of green and blue creates an organic whole that makes the entire home feel coherent and pleasing as people go from one room to the next.

Using Color in Some Rooms

Another way to bring color to show off a home's personality is to use color only in some spaces, or only using an accent wall. For example, the homeowner may decide to paint the dining room a pleasing shade of mellow green to bring attention to the room's lovely expanse of dark hardwood flooring. A homeowner may also want to call attention to the fireplace in the living room. Using a bold shade of red is one way to bring the viewer's attention to the mantlepiece as well as any details such as the tiles in front of it.

Neutral Shades

Neutral shades are another popular option for the homeowner who wants to use color as a way to show off their personality and the home's personality at the same time. Colors from this area of the color wheel such as soft grey, understated beige, subtle white and cream help make any space inviting and relaxing. Shades that call to mind the outdoors make even small rooms feel much bigger. Think about using neutral shades in places where people spend lots of time such as the family room. This is an excellent choice if the home has a single style such as country French. These type of color plan allows details such as antique furnishings stand out better.

Decorating for Given Style

The decor is another way to bring out the home's personality. Choose each piece with great care. Specific colors and styles go together well. For example, Art Deco pieces look fabulous with colors such as pink and black that were popular during that era. A traditional look works well with color combinations such as green and pink. Think about the entire effect. Start with style element if possible, such as a couch or the room's large skylight and then work from there.

Creating a Focal Point

A focal point is one of the best ways to convey different moods and impressions. A focal point can be nearly anything including a beautiful rug or the view outside a window. If the room lacks a focal point, it's possible to create one. Paint the walls in the room white. This will show off the focal point better. Hang a large picture on one wall and surround it with several smaller pictures. Another way to create a focal point is by painting three of the walls a slightly different color. Reserve one wall for a contrasting color. For example, use shades of lavender on most of the room's walls. Then, take one wall and paint it a dramatic shade of deep lemon yellow. The contrast helps create a sense of fun that makes it easy to show how much the homeowner loves specific colors.

Color is one of the most essential tools in the homeowner's bag of decorating tricks. Think carefully about which colors are most pleasing. Using them well in the home creates fantastic spaces that are full of terrific personality and wonderfully vivid life.

Four Energy Efficient Home Improvements To Modernize Your Home

If you want to improve the efficiency of your property and modernize it at the same time, you need to ask yourself which upgrades will save money on energy and add value to your home at the same time. Choosing more straightforward upgrades may be the easier route, but sometimes complex ones, such as adding solar panels to produce electricity for your home, can provide advantages that go beyond what you have imagined and pay for themselves in minimal time.

Install a Programmable Thermostat

If your home doesn't have one, it's definitely time to get one. Programmable thermostats are virtually a must for anyone who lives in a climate with extremes in the summer and winter. A programmable thermostat enhances HVAC efficiency by enabling you to get your climate system to reach optimal temperatures for a minimal cost. It will allow you to turn the temperature down in the winter, and up in the summer when you're not home, yet have your home at the right temperature when you return. Once the thermostat is programmed, it will automatically alter the temperature, according to your settings.

Install New Doors and Windows

Although you may not realize it, styles of doors and windows do change slightly over time. More importantly, however, doors and windows have become more efficient at keeping out the cold and heat over the past ten years; newer windows and doors do a much better job at keeping interior temperatures consistent because of the low-E value of glass, as well as better weather stripping and insulation in the products. Homeowners may also be able to get special energy-efficient financing by purchasing such products. If you are a veteran, a VA energy efficiency loan can cover up to $6,000 for green home improvements.

Replace Your Appliances

Refrigerators and stoves are major energy users, along with your washer and dryer. Replacing these high-use appliances will give you more bells and whistles, and make your home more energy efficient at the same time. The same goes for your central air conditioning and heating system. Contemporary units use much less energy, thus paying for themselves in a few years.

Install Solar Panels

Generating your own electricity has become much more commonplace over the last decade as prices for the solar panels themselves, along with installation, have dropped by a combined 70 percent. In addition to making your own electricity, many local power companies allow you to sell excess electricity to the utility, so you can even make an easy profit on your green, clean investment.

By utilizing a combination of augmented and virtual reality, you can quickly make alterations to a room—switch up the furniture arrangement, paint colors, and other essential design elements, such as lighting features.

This virtual environment makes it easy to visualize the look of your space, and you can make quick comparisons between different possible designs. Virtual reality programs can be used to allow homeowners to compare different paint colors for the interior walls of their home—helping them to identify the color they like best in their space. Then, before making final purchases, you can play around with the furniture until you find something that suits the room and your sense of style.

Commercial Design Applications of Augmented and Virtual Reality

Augmented reality tools can also be used to show prospective homebuyers how the property could look after they move in. Here, the virtual environment makes it easier for buyers to see themselves living in the space, so they can make informed purchasing decisions moving forward.

These tools can also be used to allow designers to compare different ideas and decide which are better suited to the space in question. These and other applications of virtual reality can be used to significant effect by interior decorators and others in the industry to help bridge the gap between imagination and reality—creating a design that suits the space perfectly.

The Bottom Line

As technology continues to improve, more applications of these tools will inevitably be discovered and invented. Whether it’s in the form of interior design apps or sophisticated software for commercial contractors, virtual and augmented reality tools can be used to great effect when it comes time to redecorate and remodel or home.

Instead of having to repaint a room, rearrange furniture, and find new decorative pieces to accent the room, virtual reality tools can save time, money, and frustration by making it possible to do all these things quickly and easily.

While VR technology can help you visualize changes to your home, you’ll still need someone to step in and make these changes in the real world. Ready to take the next steps in the design process? Reach out to us at Jaworski Painting.

How to Be Prepared for an Exterior Home Painting

Even though exterior home painting can look like a fairly simple job to a naïve eye, there are some preparation techniques that are more than worth knowing. Preparing the façade, setting up the place, protection against splash damage and other work that has to be done prior to painting is incredibly exhausting unless you know exactly what to expect.

The problem with this scenario lies in the fact that the exterior painting gets done once every 10-15 years. This means that this is either your first exterior painting or that you’ve already forgotten about most of the details regarding the last paint job. With that in mind and without further ado, here are several tips that will help you get prepared for an exterior home painting.

1. Preparing the surface

The first thing you have to do is prepare the surface accordingly. This mostly depends on the type of materials that cover it, seeing as how aluminum siding, stucco and wood siding all have different properties, as well as different longevity. Wood siding should be replaced after 4 years (if stained), while stucco lasts longer than six years. If, for the reason of pragmatism, you wanted to wait until you could handle all of these issues at the same time, you’re in for a bit more work. As for the rest, mildew can be bleached, while the rest can be rinsed off with a hose or a power washer. The latter can be rented, if you have a hard time justifying a purchase for a device you’ll use once per decade.

2. One- or two-story building

This particular angle changes virtually everything. Sure, at the moment you might think you can do it all from the ladders, yet, ladders do have their limitations. First of all, painting is a lot of work and it requires freedom of motion, one that you won’t have standing on the ladder. This leads you in one of two directions. First, you can set up a scaffold with is frugal but complex and dangerous. The simplest way to go about this is to find an elevated work platform for hire, which you can move at your own behest. In this way, you get a reliable and mobile work surface and your painting efforts become much more efficient.

3. Watch out for potential hazards

Another thing worth considering is potential hazards, other than falling, seeing as how this is something you should worry about when choosing your work platform. This last part we’ve already discussed in the previous section. Some other things you need to watch out when painting, is the issue of electrical and telephone wires which, although isolated, still might pose a substantial risk. Moreover, some areas of your home are in a direct contact with trees and branches, which might cause you to bump into them, thus increasing the hazard of tripping and falling. So, if pruning is not an option, you should at least exercise increased awareness.

4. Evaluating old paint

Another thing you need to learn is how to evaluate old paint and treat it accordingly. For starters, you need to learn how to treat cracks, as well as how to estimate if it was caused by an excessive buildup. A 1/16-inch-thick means that the last time around, there was too much paint on that single spot. Now, you should peel it off and be extra careful when reapplying. On the other hand, if weathered wood appears you’ll have a different problem altogether. Peeling might reappear, while the paint might stick to a previous surface. Preparing the layer thoroughly might, therefore, be the best option you’ve got.

5. Consider painting all the rest

Once you paint the exterior of your home, your old windows and doors will look even shabbier than before. Sure, improving the façade is a great idea on its own, yet, if you’re aiming to improve the impression that your entire exterior makes, you won’t be able to stop there. Front door makeovers, window replacement and even landscaping all require you to invest time, effort and resources, which is something to consider when planning your exterior home painting budget. While seemingly different, all of these projects need to be paid from the same wallet.

In conclusion

At the end of the day, if you’re doing the project yourself, you have to look past the ROI. The risks, the competence, the cost of the additional equipment might be too much for you to handle, while, on the other hand, you might have similar previous experience or already possess a part of the necessary equipment for the job. In the case of the latter, you’ll find the project much less complex and expensive than you’ve initially expected. Either way, like wars, these projects are won or lost in the preparation stage.

Construction 974x423 - Who Is Responsible When Commercial Real Estate Gets Messed Up?

Who Is Responsible When Commercial Real Estate Gets Messed Up?

If you are a commercial real estate professional or investor, then you need to understand liability when it comes to a property getting damaged. There are various ways for this to affect stakeholders, including tenants. Here are multiple ways that real estate can go wrong and what you need to know about who is responsible:

Construction Delays

If there is a commercial real estate failure, such as beams or supports crumbling, this can fall onto the shoulders of the construction that erected them in the first place. It causes many delays in the process, costing everyone who invested more money. However, depending on the safety codes that it violated or who approved them, it could fall back to the architect or even the investor.

Investment Failures

Investing is a fine line between taking a risk and getting rewarded for it. Many investments turn out to be very rewarding. However, if your venture fails, you might have to pay some sort of back-pay to the initial investors if such an arrangement was signed in the term sheet.

Injuries

When real estate failures cause injuries, it often falls back on either the broker, the agent, or even the investor. This is because you are supposed to sign off on safety measures and building safety throughout the process to ensure no one gets hurt. Make sure if someone is ever injured on your property that you have the right insurance as well as legal help.

Contractual Errors

Sometimes, even lawyers overlook a few issues when bringing something to you to sign. If this happens, you need to consider your options. While you might be liable for miscommunications or a failure to sign the correct documentation, you can also claim negligence on the part of your representation.

Building and Zoning Code Problems

It is a common problem in commercial real estate to be dealing with zoning laws that make it difficult to build the kind of structures you want. You might be putting up an office building in a residential zone, for instance. If you mess up and build something that is not to code, the city may come back and demand fines from you.

 

When it comes to commercial real estate, having a strategic advantage is critical. When you are able to invest more in property and protect your downside, you can enjoy more potential upside through profit and analysis. So make sure you understand the real estate issues above so you can make smart decisions to avoid lawsuits, delays, and other problems with your investment overall.

qtq80 PF5Saw 1210x423 - Advice to Protect Your HVAC During house renovation

Advice to Protect Your HVAC During house renovation

Use these tips to keep your HVAC system free from remodeling dust.

HVAC equipment definitely needs to be protected from dirt as it may be harmful. Many repair problems can be detected back to the formation of dirt and dust inside the system. Anybody who has gone through a home renovation knows how dusty it can be. If you take precautions beforehand you can be sure that you’ll not end up with expensive repairs. A little pre-planning can solve the issue of protection of your HVAC equipment from the dust gathered during a home renovation.

Plan ahead

As mentioned above you need to take into consideration some issues beforehand. First of all you need to review your plans with your existing HVAC provider before you begin the process. You’d better to prefer the local ones, so if you are living in Las Vegas, consider choosing Air Conditioner service in Las Vegas as they are better aware of all the pros and cons. There isn’t anything worse than discovering after the process that something needed to be done differently before. So plan at first not to regret later.

Switch off the HVAC

It would be better if you avoid using your furnace or air conditioner during the process of renovations as it is always accompanied with dust.

Close off registers and vents

Close the registers in the place where the process is going on and cover them to avoid the dust from entering your system. In case of using your heating or cooling equipment, be attentive not to cover too many registers at once. And if you can’t be sure whether you’re decreasing the airflow in our system, have your heating contractor come in and check it.

Clean regularly

You should take care of tidiness of the work area by cleaning it frequently throughout the project to prevent the extension of the dust. Too often the openings for heating or cooling systems are used as practical storage for smudged debris. So here is another reason to ensure that they are carefully sealed during the whole remodeling process.

Check the filter

Another important thing is to clean and change your HVAC filter regularly during the process and particularly after having it finished. Very often a filter which seems to be clean can have tiny specks blocking the airflow of the filter. This might be an obstacle and create a strain on your heating or cooling system.

Move the prep work outside

Getting rid of unneeded things or moving some things to another place from home will always be a good idea. It’ll help to reduce the mess of your home

Pay attention to dust control

Plastic tarps can be a good option to isolate the work area from the rest of the house. View the dust control used by your contactor to make sure that it is proper for your project. While dust is being created, the remodeled area should be sustained at a negative pressure to the rest of your home.

Inspect the situation

Think about how your blower, duct and indoor coil were tested when the project is done so that dust and debris do not accumulate in your furnace or air handler. Moreover, you can consider air duct cleaning to make sure that dust doesn’t pass through your heating or cooling equipment.

home theater tech tips 800x423 - 5 Tech Tips to Enhance Your Home Theater Room

5 Tech Tips to Enhance Your Home Theater Room

Does your home theater setup underwhelm you? Try these five tips to bring a movie theater quality experience home.

1. Blackout Curtains

Natural light and glare can ruin any movie viewing experience. There’s a reason why theaters do not have any windows. Buying blackout curtains hold back unwanted light and can keep your room cooler at the same time. Keeping light out of the room is a necessity for the best viewing experience, especially if you have a highly reflective television screen or are using digital projectors.

 

You might also wish to paint the room to a darker color for better contrast. This can be an easy DIY project to undertake, just consider following our interior painting tips, as you don’t want to damage anything or get set back in your home theatre improvement process.

2. Calibrate Your Audio System

Every room is different. To hear the sound how it was intended, you have to make sure your system knows the location of each speaker in your room and has them set to the right volume. Many receivers come with automatic calibration features and special microphones that will take care of this for you in minutes. You can even do this right from your smartphone.

3. Automate

Do you have a pre-movie setup ritual? You have to turn off all the unwanted lights and make sure all of your equipment is set to the correct input. Use smart devices that will transform your everyday living space into a quality theater experience in no time. You can use automation to turn down your lights, set your A/C to the right temperature, and ensure that equipment like an audio receiver, or digital projectors are ready to go.

4. Improve the Quality of Your View

Think projectors are just for the cinema? Bring that premium experience home with a digital projector. Home projectors offer the same high definition experience you would expect from a top of the line panel. The size of your image is only limited by the size of your screen – which can even be your wall. However, you should make sure that you match your screen to your projector. Equipped with the latest technology, 4K projector screens enhance all aspects of your viewing experience for the best possible movie night.

5. Soundproofing

Soundproofing your home theater room by putting up acoustic absorbent can keep the right sound in and the wrong sounds out. You can get rid of unwanted home noises like A/C kicking on. Once you’ve made your room soundproof, you can set your audio receiver to the widest sound range possible. This will allow you to get rid of the compression used to make quiet sounds audible in noisy rooms.

 

In the end, a good movie viewing experience is all about how you like it. Experiment with sound and video settings to find the best setup that works for you.

5 Tips to Manage Your House Renovation Project Easier

AdobeStock 88386956 1 300x200 - 5 Tips to Manage Your House Renovation Project Easier

 

Renovation can be an exciting project for any homeowner. But just like any home improvement project, it isn’t always a breath of fresh air. In reality, renovation can be messy, stressful, dusty, and at times, dangerous. If you’ve renovated your home before, you must be familiar with the actual scene: dust all over the place. Wet paint with suffocating smell, paint splatters, handyman tools scattered everywhere, muddy floors - it always looks like there has been a major disaster. Well, don’t lose hope. You can get it done with minimal mess, loss and damage. How? Check out these five helpful tips:

Secure everything first before getting started.

First things first. You want to make sure that the area to be renovated is free from anything that can hinder a smooth and organized workflow. That’s it - free from furniture, appliances, and all other things your workers will not need. You want to keep it bare as much as possible. If there are furniture or appliances that are built-in, the only workaround is to cover them with cloth or tarp. This way, they don’t get soaked in dust or paint splatter, or get scratched or damaged during the job. If you have a vacant room that won’t be affected by the renovation, move all furnishings and other stuff you can’t easily wipe clean in there. This will save you money, effort and lots of time having to clean all these items once the renovation project is done. Seal off work areas. Use plastic sheeting or tarps to separate work areas from where you will be living.

Prepare your cleaning supplies.

Before the project starts, you want to be prepared with all the cleaning tools you will need, from the vacuum cleaner to the scrubbers, cleaning solutions, cloths, rags, plastic sheeting, and more. Don’t forget to stock on sanitizing wipes to easily wipe clean any surfaces, especially your beloved furniture and appliances. Keep the air clean and circulating. Dirty air is a common consequence of most home improvement projects. Fortunately, there are ways to lessen if not fully prevent it. First, consider getting your home renovated during warmer months whenever possible. Summer renovations are ideal because they allow for a more thorough exchange of air within your home as you keep your windows open. Another way to ensure clean air throughout the renovation work is by sealing air vents, at least during the time when actual work is happening. Covering vents helps reduce a buildup of dust that are sure to spread around your home. Also, make use of dehumidifiers or air movers. Unnecessary moisture can lead to growth mold, especially when the renovation requires removing drywall. As this process requires water to remove dust, dehumidifiers will keep the everything dry during the process.

Don’t underestimate the power of vacuum.

The vacuum is one of the most powerful tools you could ever use to keep your home organized  and clean during a renovation work. It’s the most cost-effective way to keep the level of dust down. Vacuum as you see necessary. Don’t wait for the workday to end before you start controlling the dust. You can use a high-powered dust filter for better results. You can contractors if they have one as one of your considerations when selecting the one to hire for your project. Use the upholstery attachment on your vacuum to clean any upholstered furniture, such as mattresses and sofas.

Pick the right contractor.

This is one of the most important. Not only you have to consider the skills of the contractor you are hiring. You should also consider their work ethics and cleanliness. Doesn’t matter whether they are polishing the concrete, or cleaning the air, the contractors should have a cleaning plan in place, and won’t just leave your home with all the dirt scattered around. Professional workers clean as they go and see to it that their tools and equipment are properly organized or arranged
in the worksite before they leave. When selecting a contractor, check to see if a final clean is part of their service. If not, consider hiring someone to do it once the project has been completed.

Some More Tips to Reduce/Prevent Damage

1) Check on and change the air filters in your home. Painters often remove filters before working and forget to put them back on. A missing filter can damage your furnace.
2) Take down and clean light fixtures, as well as the blades of ceiling fans, if you have.
3) Clean the walls, including the molding. If they’re newly painted, dry-dust them.
4) Raise concerns immediately. If you notice any damage during the renovation work, let the contractors know. Renovating a home can be a messy and dangerous undertaking. Surely, you can’t prevent the dust, dirt and chaos, but you can definitely reduce and control them. With advanced planning and the right preparation, you can definitely ensure a smooth, clean and organized renovation project.
