Secure Your Home


Closed circuit television is not the panacea to all security and safety problems that many people believe it to be. CCTV should only be part of an integrated approach that considers all aspects of the security problems being experienced.


There must be a starting point for preparing specification so that it will reflect the reason for purchasing it. Make a statement of the problems that are to be resolved, such as:

– Vandalism in manufacturing industries, banks, oil companies, shops, office complexes and residential premises.
– Shop theft
– Industrial or commercial break-ins
– The target for the intruder, is it material goods or information? I.e. industrial espionage
– Danger to individuals from attacks
– Health and safety of individuals on the premises or site.
– To replace or reduce manned guarding.
– To supplement manned guarding, making them more efficient.
– To monitor persons entering and leaving the premises
– To provide visual confirmation of intruders activating an alarm
– To monitor a remote, unattended site.

The list is obviously endless in general terms, but for a particular site, there must be finite reasons for considering CCTV. If they cannot be listed, you probably do not need it.

Your Kids’ Bedroom Requires Something More than Decoration

Kid`s BedroomWhile designing your children’s bedroom, you need to use a slightly different approach that you use while decorating any other area in your house. Commonly, when it comes to designing the interior of a room, decoration is considered the first preference but in case of kids’ apartment you need to think about multiple factors simultaneously.

You can’t just go with simple DIY techniques; instead you have to hire the services of a renowned interior designer in Pakistan because he, being professional can think of the facts, which you may overlook.

Safety is above everything

Kids are careless creatures; they hardly care about their surroundings while playing or having fun. Therefore, while decorating their room’s interior, you need to keep the safety above every other thing. Make sure that the furniture you place in the kids’ room, does not have sharp edges or protruding designs or curves. Use furniture and other accessories which have sleek surface because these not only provide safety but also maintain the contemporary interior designing taste and trends. The electrical outlets inside the room should also be covered properly.
You also need to install nightlights in your kids’ bedroom so that they may have safe, and comfort sleep. If you are placing bunk beds, make sure these are safe with respect to their age and have safety rails around them. The shelves and cabinets should be in easy access of kids so that they may not have to stand on a table or chair to pick up their books, clothes or toys. Sometimes, when a kid jumps to hold a particular product, it may fall on him/her, ultimately causing a serious injury. Carpeting the room is also a good option as long as your kids are not allergic of it. The thick carpets are safer because even if a kid falls on it, he does not get as harsh injuries.

Make it a Fun Place too

The room should never be boring because a dull interior does have a great impact on the moods of your children. Choose, pleasing paint colors or you can also draw different patterns and designs on the walls to make it a livelier effect. Curtains, bed covers, furniture, everything should give a pleasing effect to your kids’ moods. You can sponge paint or stencil paint a wall with different characters of your children’s choice. Lighting should be just perfect. However, you need to avoid placing floor lamps because the little creature might not be as careful and can drop it down while playing. On one wall, you can install an LED screen where children cannot only enjoy watching cartoons but can also play games.

Make it Learning Place

Early age is the best time for kids to learn as much as they can. Therefore, for better cognitive development of your little ones, you need to provide them proper learning environment within the area they are living in or spending most of their time. You can allocate one corner of the room as a study or learning place, where you place learning toys, study table, shelves, a white board and various other things. If you are hesitant to use one place as multifunctional area, then better use fabric partitions inside the room for every section. For instance, a study section can be separated from the rest of the rooms just by hanging a beautiful curtain in the middle. The partition is necessary to keep the kids’ attention on one thing.

Designing kids’ room is undoubtedly a great excitement because you need to keep up functionality and decoration simultaneously. By hiring a modern interior designer in Lahore, you can get different ideas and suggestions about designing a perfect room for your children.

Three Renovation Ideas Every Homeowner Should Know

The word ‘renovation’ should conjure up two ideas in any homeowner’s mind:  Beauty and Value.  ‘Beauty’ is the first component regarding renovation since the major intent of a renovation project is to eliminate the old and bring in the new.  It’s about adding fresh colors, textures, patterns and designs to enhance any part of one’s home, whether the beautification is inside or out.  ‘Value’ is the second component of renovation; and it is crucial because it has everything to do with increasing the equity in one’s home; or at the very least, providing the home with enhanced re-sell potential, allowing it sell faster if it is ever on the market.

Here are three renovation ideas that will add beauty and value to any home in any neighborhood; and according to Remodeling magazine, kitchen and bath makeovers take the lead as equity builders!

Renovate the Kitchen!

The kitchen is the heartbeat of a home; and because of that, even a minor kitchen makeover including painting, refinishing surfaces and upgrading appliances can bring in an 87% return while a major kitchen renovation, including new flooring, high-end appliances, new countertops and cabinets, etc., can contribute to an 80% return on investment—this, according to the popular television series, This Old House.

Some considerations for a dramatic kitchen makeover can include adding:

*** upgraded or top-of-the-line stainless-steel appliances

*** stone countertops:  granite or even concrete countertops are very much in vogue, though pricey.  A great alternative would be engineered stone or laminate materials that stunningly simulate much-more expensive options.

*** new, refaced or painted cabinets:  new cabinets are not cheap, but they do look stunning.  Two less-costly considerations, however, would be to have your cabinets professionally painted or refaced.  Once you add new pulls, knobs and hinges, your cabinets will look dynamic at a very affordable cost.

*** new lighting fixtures or recessed lighting:  included in this would under-cabinet lighting which adds an extremely cozy, welcoming ambiance in addition to extra light during food-preparation times.

*** new flooring:  tile, wood planks or less-expensive engineered woods are only a few of the flooring options, giving your entire kitchen a high-end appearance!

*** an island, preferably with seating:  any sized-kitchen can look dramatic with an island or an extension of a countertop area that can act like an island.  Whether it is a work-space-only Island, a larger island or extended countertop space that can accommodate additional people for eating, you will have added an amenity that is universally appealing.

*** fresh coat of paint:  give your walls a fresh coat of paint, but it’s wise to keep colors neutral to appeal to a larger audience , if the house will be, eventually, sold.

*** stainless-steel sink with new faucets:  this will add instant ‘zing’ to any kitchen, all by itself!

*** tile or stone backsplash:  especially around stove areas, tile or stone acting as a backsplash that has been sealed is super-easy to keep clean and provides eye-candy regardless of where it is placed.

A professional-looking kitchen remodel will give you more bang for your buck when it comes to adding equity to your home!

Renovate a Bathroom!

Creating the bathroom of your dreams doesn’t have to create a nightmare with your budget.  Again, there are so many things—both minor and major—you can choose to do to transform any bathroom in your home from ‘frumpy’ to ‘fabulous’, including the following:

*** renovate or replace cabinets as well as adding countertops and faucet hardware

*** replace or refurbish an old tub:  refurbishing an old tub is very cost effective; but if replacing is the goal, substitute the tub with a beautiful, walk-in shower lined with marble-slab or tile.  According to the American Institute of Architects, more than 60% of homeowners prefer a walk-in shower over a tub and shower, combo.  To keep the home optimally marketable, however, at least one bathroom in a home should have a tub.

*** tiled flooring:  any linoleum replaced by tile will add a tremendous ‘wow’ factor to even the smallest of bathrooms!

*** storage:  as much storage as possible in a bathroom is a big plus.  Adding shelving and a wall cabinet above the commode with additional shelves and/or drawers will add charm and much-needed space anything bathroom related.

Remodeling magazine states that a mid-range bathroom remodel will recoup 70% of the investment.

Add Curb Appeal!

A home’s curb appeal is every bit as important as any facelift on the inside; and a home’s exterior is what creates that all-important ‘first impression.’  What people don’t realize is how much value landscaping and a beautiful yard can add to a home.  The National Association of Realtors states that Curb appeal can contribute 10% of a home’s total value, and has the potential to add thousand’s or ten’s-of-thousands of dollars to a home’s market value.

Consider the following to add to your home’s ‘first impression’:

*** keep the yard well-fertilized with a dedicated regime of fertilization and weed-preventative measures, several times a year.

*** plant flowers:  generous amounts of flowers or flowering bushes will add dramatic splashes of color.  Additionally, large pots filled with blooming color will make any visitor feel welcomed.

*** spruce up the front door:  your entrance door is a hidden gem just waiting to make your home’s entire exterior ‘pop’!  A home painted gray, for example, will become the perfect candidate for a door that is painted red, slate blue, yellow or green.  And don’t forget to add a brass door-knocker and new hardware.  You will be amazed at the transformation—your front entrance will go from ‘drab’ to ‘fab’!

*** stain your walkway:  if your walkways have seen better days, you can give them a new lease on life, too.  Staining products for just this purpose are available at any home-improvement store.  The product is simply rolled on with a long-handled roller.  Oh what a difference it can make!

Renovations are all about enhancing the beauty of one’s home and increasing the home’s value!

Living Room Wall Decorating Ideas

When you are looking for different ways to decorate an area, why not consider creative wall art ideas. This might provide a unique finish, color and texture for your living room. There are many designs and ideas you could use such as murals, vases, appliqués, plates and never forgetting photographs.

Murals could be personalized according to your own preference using objects or people. Among the simplest wall hangings is of metal; this kind is available in various colors and styles which means you are sure to find something that will complement your décor. Simple to maintain, simply by regular dusting: this really is all that is required. Furthermore, there is nothing to interrupt or damage.

Another creative paintings idea is in using vases, either with flowers or greenery contained within or without. Different colors put into vases to enhance the décor of the living room could result in an overall pleasing result. Changing the flowers and foliage based on the season could also provide another complementary look. Alternatively, simply by grouping some white vases together against a colourful background could provide an amazing outcome. So there are lots of ways to experiment with in finding the best look for your living


Hang display shelves on family room walls to personalize the area. This opens up decorating choices to objects that cannot be hung on walls and it provides homeowners having a way to open conversations about treasured heirlooms and fun vacation finds. Group objects together instead of scattering them one by one in the shops. Grouping adds a sense of cleanliness and organization.

Eye-catching paintings may be more readily available than ever before. Purchase prints that fit your design sense on the web, in department stores, discount stores as well as some pharmacies. Choose art that reflects both you and your sense of style, but be aware of all of those other colors in your living room and draw them by helping cover their the right art piece. Choose pieces that flatter the color of your furniture and mimic colors of other decorative accent pieces. Use large artworks as focal points or group smaller pieces together in odd numbers.


Soften the appearance and feel of the family room by decorating walls with fabric. Fabric can also add visual appeal as well as texture. Fabric around the walls may soften the feel of a living room with hard lines or hard floors of wood or tile. Hang floor-to-ceiling-length curtains along a whole wall to create an accent wall. Avoid loud or busy patterns in rooms which are already filled with visual interest.


Use regular wall paint to produce the illusion of depth by painting large squares or rectangles in your living room wall decoration in a shade slightly lighter or darker compared to original wall color. You may also create contrast and a focus by painting an “accent wall.” Accent walls really are a lone wall painted a drastically different color compared to rest of the room. Try using a color around the opposite side of the color wheel in the rest of the walls for dramatic impact.

Color Combinations for House Painting

Successful color schemes in painting fall into four basic categories, ranging from very subtle to extremely colorful. For a fifth option – technically not a color scheme – based on black, white or gray. Once you see how the different schemes are formed, you can build your own combinations from a favorite color, adding other colors you love or finding new ones you never considered in your home painting activities.

The Monochromatic Scheme

A monochromatic scheme uses variations in value and intensity of a single color to create a virtually fool-proof design scheme. These combinations are both elegant and restful. Imagine walls and furnishings covered in varying values, and perhaps some patterns, or orange, from peach to burnt umber. Because the colors all come from one source on the color wheel, such rooms have a pleasing unity.

With a monochromatic scheme, too much contrast between values can look uneven. Choose a trim color only a shade or two darker than the wall, or use other elements to provide a middle value. For instance, if you paint the wall a light blue and the trim slate blue, unify the two colors by selecting upholstery that’s between the two in value. You can enliven any monochromatic scheme with texture and pattern, and add interest with a splash of accent color schemes, such as an antiqued red chest in an ochre room.

The easiest way to build a monochromatic paint scheme is to select colors from paint charts or chips that include several values of the same color.

Neutral Colors

One of the most refined monochromatic schemes combines neutral colors. Unlike the true neutrals- white, black, and gray – these “colorized” neutrals are very low-intensity versions of colors. Take green to its lowest intensity and the result is a neutral. Yellow becomes a buttery off-white. Neutrals can vary in value, just like any other colors. Pearl and butter are light in value, celery and camel are medium, coffee bean and charcoal are dark.

These softer hues lend ambience and a hint of color to a painted room but never overwhelm it or stand out. They are ideal backgrounds for furnishings and artwork, since they put the focus on what’s in the room, not what color is on the walls. Use the color wheel to discover the most pleasing partners for these colors. For a complementary contrast to a neutral yellow-green, you might choose merlot, a very low-intensity red-violet that lies opposite yellow-green on the wheel.

In particular, if the front entrance of the home leads into the living room and is directly in line with the windows of that room, it is never a good idea to position the sofa directly in between the two.

5 Reasons To Install A Privacy Fence

As the mercury starts to rise, so does the desire to spruce up your yard and make improvements to your outdoor living space. While building a deck or updating a patio are two such projects that tend to see the biggest return on investment, they may not be the best place to start. Instead, you may want to consider installing a privacy fence before tackling other major projects. Here are 5 reasons to install a privacy fence first.

1. Create Separation

As the name implies, the purpose of a privacy fence is to give you more privacy. Even if you get along great with your next door neighbors, you don’t always need to see each other. Nor do you want random passersby to know what you are doing. By installing privacy fencing, however, your can extend the usable square footage of your home and make your backyard an extension of your home. You enjoy an intimate moment in a hot tub on the deck, sunbathe by the pool, take a nap in a hammock or jump on the trampoline with your children without worrying about the wandering eyes of your neighbors.

2. Add Security

Another reason to install privacy fencing before you complete other outdoor projects is that it will increase the security of your yard and the investments and improvements you make to it. Your new outdoor kitchen and patio furniture, for instance, will remain hidden from the eyes of potential burglars with a good fence. It can also prevent stray animals from entering your yard and tearing up natural landscape features. When you install privacy fencing that features a locking gate, outdoor pools and hot tubs will be less of a danger for young children as well.

3. Save Money

While it may seem counterintuitive, spending money on privacy fencing can actually save you money. Many insurance companies will offer a discount on homeowner policy premiums because of the added security. Your home is less of a risk for burglaries and vandalism when your yard features a privacy fence of some sort. The exact amount of savings will vary from carrier to carrier but you can usually expect to see annual savings in the double digits.

4. Reduce Noise

Many types of privacy fencing also boast noise reducing properties. This is especially beneficial in if you live in the city or even on a busy street in the suburbs with constant traffic. You will certainly enjoy your outdoor space more if it is quieter. Landscape architects also recommend incorporating shrubbery or trees when installing privacy fencing. This is often referred to as a “living fence” and works in conjunction with the privacy fence to muffle the sound from the street. An added bonus: the greenery will help to process and reduce the carbon dioxide emitted from cars, turn it into oxygen and make the air in your yard cleaner and fresher.

5. Increase Value

Whether you prefer the look of natural wood or the low maintenance of vinyl, any type of privacy fence will increase the value of your home. Many outdoor improvements such as a sport court, an outdoor kitchen or a swimming pool are very taste specific and don’t appeal to all buyers. While you may not see a dollar for dollar return on privacy fencing, it still yields a high return on investment because it is universally appealing to buyers. Not only does it add privacy and security, but a fence also adds curb appeal to your home. Flower gardens and other soft landscaping features become more visually interesting when they are accentuated by hard landscape features such as a fence. In today’s tough real estate market, any selling feature you have that other listings do not will help your home sell faster and will be financially advantageous.

These are just five reasons to install a privacy fence before you take on other outdoor home improvement projects; there are many other benefits and advantages as well. Privacy fencing is a wise investment that you will enjoy for decades to come. In fact, a high quality fence can last anywhere from 20 years to 50 years—sometimes even more! If you are worried that you won’t have enough money to complete other projects after you install a privacy fence, you may want to talk to your neighbors. More often than not, they will be more than willing to work together and split the cost with you because they too will benefit from a privacy fence along adjoining property lines.

5 Ways To Design A Romantic Modern Bedroom

With Valentine’s Day approaching quite fast, your bedroom maybe end up being the place where all the festivities take place.  With that said, its current state may not be in its most romantic mode.  Fear not, there are many ways that you can turn an ordinary bedroom, into one that is romantic whether it happens in time for this Valentine’s Day or the ones that follow – that’s a different question.

When designing or redesigning your modern bedroom, focus of the contemporary furniture pieces that you put in there, lighting, colors, textures and of course don’t forget to tastefully accessorize.  Here are some inspirations to guide you…

With Plaza Modern Poster Bed by Cattelan Italia (Noir Collection) as the focal point, this modern bedroom features a chocolate colored accent wall and a splash of color in the form of wall art.

Informal and inviting, this modern bedroom is focused more on the finishes and less on colors.   Using a modern poster bed from Armani Casa collection, this room is full of cozy décor elements.

Interior incorporates rich gold accents with romantic purples and fuschia colors.  The William Modern Leather Upholstered Bed by Cattelan remains in stark white, as the most attractive and contrasting feature of the room.

Minimal, yet inviting, this interior has a modern leather upholstered bed by Pianca in chocolate color with the remainder of the room having soft pink hues accented by modern chrome elements and unusual lighting fixtures.

  1. Furniture – With the bed being the focal point of the room, it is very important to select a bed that fits the room in size and in proportions.  Choose a bed that fits within your style and preferences, select from modern platform beds, sleight beds, tatami beds or canopy beds and then match all other bedroom furniture to the bed’s style, your needs and spatial capacities – when there is harmony, there is romance.  As for the finishes, on the more romantic side are upholstered beds (leather or fabric), ones that are finished in dark rich woods (usually wenge) or high gloss lacquers in deep red or black.  If possible, look for a bed that incorporates lighting into its structure – you can use it to create a romantic aura when all other lighting is off.
  2. Bedding – The bedding should match the style of the room, and should not take away from your modern bed’s style.  Opt for monochromatic ensembles, or sets that layer contrasting colors and/or textures.  Prints are good too, as long as they are not too busy or dominant.
  3. Lighting – Lighting is crucial, make sure that it is not to bright, include a dimmer for recessed lights or a ceiling fan.  Sconces are an absolute must, they give out soft light and help create subtle aura that is very romantic.  Wall sconces that have a mirrored back are great because the light is reflected and enhanced, creating an even more ambient atmosphere.
  4. Color – Deep tones are key for a romantic look.  Shades of red, burgundy, purples, fuchsia all symbolize love and passion while chocolates, and burnt (brick) oranges are warm and cozy.  Use color in a form of an accent wall (maybe the one behind your modern bed) complimented by a more subdued color hue covering the rest of the room.  Carry that color into accessories, flooring, and bedding.
  5. Accessories – Personalize the room with black-and-white photographs, use candles for color and for ambient practicality. Incorporate mirrors (whether as artwork on top of the bed or leaned against a wall). The window treatments, like the bedding should compliment rather than take away from the room. Match the window treatments to the bedding and/or throw pillows and/or rug. The rug can be placed at the foot of the bed to provide a stark contrast between the bed and the floor, or on either side of the bed for plush surface that adds coziness to your modern bedroom.

Here’s How You Can Insure for Your Home Renovations

In the modern lifestyle of today, renovating houses to equip all the contemporary amenities is quite common. Unfortunately, homeowners often fail to inform their insurance agents about the renovations because they assume doing so will result in increased premiums. But the fact is that having detailed conversation with your home insurance company will actually get you enough coverage and possible discounts on your home renovation too. Here’s how it would work:


Liability: A standard home insurance policy typically offers liability coverage which protects you when someone is injured on your property. During your home renovation, your house becomes a sort of construction site, where there is enough risk of attaining injury. Your home insurance liability coverage may not be enough to protect you if something goes wrong. Most contractors have their own liability insurance that is beneficial when they suffer an accident or make any mistake that damages your property. However, you should not assume that your contractor has the liability coverage, instead you must ask them before hiring them on work. If you don’t, you will be held responsible for medical costs and more in case of injury.

Dwelling: If your home renovation plans include increasing the square foot area of your house, you may require more dwelling coverage besides what is provided under the standard policy. Dwelling coverage is a part of the home insurance that covers any physical damage caused to your home from fire, wind, hail or similar. The dwelling coverage limit is mostly set at an amount that the insurance company would require for rebuilding your house and the added renovation means. Your house will take more money to be reconstructed, which means you will have to increase your coverage limit before making any renovation to it. If you know the new square foot area of your home, you can use a dwelling coverage calculator to get an estimate of your home’s new value. This calculator would ask for your ZIP code and calculates the square foot area of your home by local construction costs.

Content: Besides area square foot, if you are also adding furniture to your home as part of the renovation, it would be also covered under the content coverage. However, like other things, content coverage too has sub-limits that would spill over limits if your new furniture is rather expensive. That means you need to increase your content coverage limits too in order to secure that new expensive furniture. You must contact your home insurance company to get the lowdown on your contents coverage limits.

The Bottom Line:

Apart from these major factors, risk renovations such as swimming pools, which is otherwise a nice idea to incorporate in your home, may also add risk to your property and will increase your liability. On the top of that, homeowners having swimming pool in their homes typically pay higher home insurance premiums because of the increased liability. Therefore to save you from getting into hazardous situations while planning a renovation, it is always good to check out the contractors review and analyze your home insurance policy with your agent to ensure complete peace of mind.

Home Renovation Points to Help Save Money

We all need to make sure that we maintain our homes as much as possible. After all, it is important to maintain the standards that have been set into place or else the value of the home starts to come down fast. This is something which you need to remember when you own a home, as you might want to sell your home at some point of time in the future, and as such, would obviously want to make sure that you get a higher price than what you purchased it for.

In this case many people go out of their way to try and include many other features so that they will be able to hike up the price, if only by a little bit, in order to make a profit. However, when you are trying to improve the price of your home by trying to include some renovations in it, there are a number of things which you should always remember. Some of them are detailed below.

The first and most important thing which you need to remember is that you shouldn’t ask friends to help you out, even if you are trying to save a little bit more money. You should always take the help of the professionals as they will be able to give you exactly the service that you are looking for. Of course, you might just have professionals who might try to make you spend more money for something and they might end up having a rather plausible-sounding reason for it, but with the help of the Internet you can now actually try and determine independently whether you actually need these extraneous services or not. To get back to the point: the professionals will at least avoid making costly mistakes which your friends might, and thereby necessitate calling in the professionals to get the job done in any case, and thereby have to pay more money.

In the quest to try and save as much money as possible, many people try to set a budget for themselves. However, you shouldn’t expect to just simply stay within the limits that you have set for yourself. No matter how well you may calculated the cost of the labor involved, the materials they might need, etc., the budget will go overboard, without a shred of doubt. Renovation work always demands that you have to be a little flexible and keep your budget open to changes, given the huge number of variables that are involved. Think about when you tear down a wall for renovation work, you will have to take the utilities such as electrical lines and water pipes into account as well. This is why you should be as careful as possible when dealing with the budget.

Many people mistakenly end up believing that if they are going to get some renovation work done, they will be able to deal with all of the work that they need to do fast. This is actually a point which is linked with the point mentioned above: given that there are so many different kinds of things which you have to keep in mind that you never know when the work might need to get done more.

4 questions to ask yourself before starting a renovation

One of the worst mistakes a homeowner can make when tackling a major renovation is to jump in sledgehammer first without a plan. Whether you’re an aspiring homeowner looking to enter the housing market with a “fixer upper,” or coming into the New Year looking to renovate and add function or value to your space, a renovation can be a good solution, but it can also be mess.

Dust and hard work aside, a renovation has obvious appeal as it generally brings a higher resale price. Many don’t realize that planning for a renovation sometimes requires even more work than the execution itself, but if you’re up for it, the end result is a bigger and better home.

So, here’s what you need to ask yourself before any renovation:

1. What is your budget?

When planning for a renovation, always be conservative. If your budget is $100,000, plan to spend $80,000. Renovations are almost always guaranteed to go over budget, as unforeseen issues pop up. Having a contingency plan from the start will get you through when you check in to see if the work is on track.

2. What is your timeline?

Knowing this in advance as well as the scope of work being done will help you determine whether you stay in your home during a renovation or go elsewhere. Living through a major renovation is never easy, but if you decide to do it, keep in mind the added cleaning at the end of the day to make the space livable again. It’s always a good idea to request a payment schedule that is tied to your timeline and project milestones.

3. Have you done the required research?

In the case of renovations, there is no such thing as over-asking or over researching. It’s good to have a rough idea of what materials cost in advance, as well as what is needed for a particular job. Also, don’t be afraid to do your homework when it comes to picking the right contractor. Get several quotes and references and check out any sites in progress to get an idea of how they work.

4. What is my resale goal?

Ask yourself how much you’re looking to increase your home’s value. This will help determine how much you should be investing in order to hit the target. For owners renovating with resale in mind, investing in spaces like the kitchen, bathroom or new flooring, although more costly than minor cosmetic changes, can pay off big time when it comes time to sell. If you’re not sure of how long you’ll be staying, it is always safe to renovate for the future. Investing in classic, quality finishes now will keep you happy in your space and increase its value in the long run.If you’re planning a renovation, take your time and plan ahead to do it right.

Top 3 Blunders in Living Room Furniture Placement Exposed

It’s a funny thing about furniture placement. When you get it right, your rooms will feel welcoming, even if the surroundings are mediocre. When you get it wrong, your room will always feel awkward no matter how much money you throw at it. Learn three common mistakes to avoid and how to fix them if you’ve already made them.

#1 Blunder

By far the most common mistake made, is the bowling alley syndrome in large living rooms. You know what I’m talking about. All the furniture in the room is pushed up against the walls with a big empty space in the middle. Sorry, having kids is no excuse.

  • Problem: No conversation area! When you are visiting with someone it’s nice to feel like your actually sitting in the same room together. If your friend is sitting on a couch eight feet away from you, the talking distance becomes naturally uncomfortable. We humans are just that way. We like to be in closer proximity to one another during conversation.
    • Fix #1: Place your couches and chairs in an ‘L’ shape pattern with no more than 24”-36” between the end of your couch and the end of your love seat or recliner. This leaves plenty of space to pass between the furniture or place an end table.
  • Fix #2: Place your sitting pieces across from one another; couch opposite chairs or couch opposite loveseat. Leave no more than six feet of space between them. This allows seating close enough to feel intimate and plenty of room for a coffee table. People don’t need more than 18” to comfortably pass between tables and sofas.

If you find you have a bunch of empty space after ‘grouping’ your furniture, GREAT! Every square foot of your home is valuable real estate. Now you have room to place a writing desk, small game table, reading nook or a ‘play’ area for the kids…you get the idea.

#2 Blunder

This one is a horrific mistake. Please don’t hide key features of your room with your furniture! Don’t use your sofa to block fire places, sliding glass doors or terrific views.

    • Problem: You just killed your focal point! Key features in a room are natural focal points. Play them up.
  • Fix: Find one or two of your favorite things about the room and make those be your focal points. Orient your furniture in such a way that you get to appreciate them every time you take a seat. If it happens to be a fire place and a great view, make sure they are seen!

You pay good money for those high value features in your home. Play them up, show them off and don’t forget why you fell in love with the house to begin with.

#3 Blunder

This one is understandable, but has its consequences. Mistake #3 is placing too much or too little furniture in a room. I know, I know, it all comes down to money or emotional attachment. Either you don’t own the furniture or you have no place to store it.

    • Problem: The room feels crowded, cluttered and uncomfortable or cold and lonely. Either scenario screams “Let me out of here!”
    • For the overstuffed room: Take some of those pieces out! Put them in another room, store them, sell them or give them away. If you must live in tight quarters, for heaven sakes make it pleasant. Letting go of clutter is liberating. You might just find your place isn’t so small after all!
  • For the empty room: Get some furniture. Real furniture. Grown up rooms have furniture. It’s about creating a life style for yourself. It’s about creating an environment that makes you feel good. Make the decision and make it happen.

Great furniture placement is time well spent and it’s free! It sets the tone for the whole room. When a room flows, it feels good. When it feels good, you feel happier. After all, isn’t that what life is all about? And just think, now that you have great flow you can get down to the real business of decorating your space…but that’s another article.

Picking Paint Colors: Through the eyes and mind of an Interior Designer.
by Sheryl G., Interior Designer

I am an Interior Designer and have been in the business of remodeling for over 25 years. I have remodeled two houses with my husband in that time and we are on our third home. With that said this is by far the hardest part about being a designer is doing your own home. I needed to pick paint colors for the exterior and for the interior so I followed some of my own rules.

Granite Slab Complimenting Wall Color

Stand out in front of the home and take in the colors you cannot
change such as brick or stone accents and colors of shingles. I thought I was lucky in that my brick is variegated with cream, rust, taupe, brown colors.

Pay attention to style of home – mine is in the country but is a typical trivial built in the late 90’s. I have lived in the home for over 10 years now battling with the fact the house has been telling me I. need to paint warm colors and creams that is not what I have done in the past homes.So off I went to the paint stores to find the color I had in mind with brick and fabric swatches in hand.


Here is a big tip – The paint stores will do small sample jars, it is worth the money to buy them and just start putting colors on the wall and live with it awhile before spending money on a gallon of paint. I tried 12 different samples ( see what I mean about this being the hardest part). I feel it is important to set the theme of the house from the moment you walk up to the front door.


So this is what I choose – the taupe brown for the body of the exterior siding the cream for the exterior trim and the rust for the accent color on all exterior doors. I also carried the rust into the interior of the house on the interior doors and an accent wall and a window seat alcove. The Interior walls are a much darker warm yellow (gold) color than the exterior cream. The flooring is tile in the entry way with all the colors mentioned above in a travertine like pattern. The flooring in the rest of the house is Hickory which also complements the warm yellow and rust colors.
