However, minimalism should be a word you should take into consideration when decorating your kitchen; the worst thing you can do is having overflowing cabinets with gadgets or all the types of Tupperware. Moreover, cabinet drawers will be a very useful and versatile option that not only will provide your kitchen with an impeccable appearance, but also will help you keep a limited number of pots and pans; let’s be honest, sometimes we have so many kitchen utensils and gadgets, that we do not even remember what we bought them for.

Therefore it is very important to find the right furnishings, and the most suitable ways to arrange them to handle both family time and visiting guests. When looking for the proper elements in your living room that not only perform at their very best, but also contribute to the organization of such space, a stuffed media center can absolutely be the best option you should consider as an open storage along one wall provides ample space, where you can store plenty of your favorites and necessary objects; electronic equipment, books, photos, games and so on. In this way, you maximize your living room’s space; and in order to provide your media center with a fresher and organized look, you can strive for installing fabric panels that conceal items stored. Fabric panels may be a challenging DIY project you can aim to achieve, however, if you would like to have another idea to consider, then custom polished doors might work wonders to cover and keep your media center looking great. Polished doors hide clutter, thus you can keep the space casual as well as well- coordinated; and to complete the right appearance in your living room, a table lamp on top to the media center might be the softest lighting option for movie nights or parties.

In order to avoid this type of situations in the future, strive to have a bathroom vanity that is gorgeous and where you can find everything you need within your hand reach; there is no need to keep a lot of products in this area of your house, store only pretty things like a set of brushes, a few pieces of jewelry in attractive glass containers, or perfume bottles out in the open. On the other hand, in case you also count on cabinets or drawers in your bathroom, keep the space in them to store those less attractive necessities; you could divide your drawers by organizing all of those make-up and items you wear on occasions, and in the other drawer space you can organize those things you have access to everyday. Clear storage boxes are an amazing way to keep your bathroom organized, and the best part is that you can add gorgeous decorating details to them with paint, decorative labels or anything you want to make them looking prettier; but remember that they should be clear, because this is how you can help yourself identifying what is inside the box, without having to open it.

Tipos de piso destacada 300x138 How to Make a Proper Vinyl Flooring DIY Installation

Vinyl flooring usually has preserve its common presentation, such as single in rolls of large sheets, however time also has reward vinyl in matters of style and nowadays vinyl flooring is available in more practical, much easier to setting up formats.

At Finish Build vinyl flooring tiles are always recommended for commercial uses. Due to the lack of weight FinishBuild vinyl flooring products are usually purchased in 12-inch squares that feature adhesive backing. The thicker the tile is, the better it will hold up over longer periods of time, but what we really think it is important is the acoustic properties this material owns. Installing tile is an ideal project for DIY eagers, particularly in smaller rooms or in this case fashion shows ramp.

Nevertheless, it is important to purchase all tiles from the same lot because, while other lots may be labeled as being the same pattern and color, slight differences in shade may occur. When it comes about setting your chalk lines, starting in the center of the room is what we usually recommend. After removing paper backing, press tiles into place. Keep into account that trimming your tiles at the walls and other edges. Subsequently we suggest you to roll tiles in both directions to set them steady.

What FinishBuild recommends:

3 300x300 How to Make a Proper Vinyl Flooring DIY InstallationWhen it comes to installing vinyl planks, let me tell you is perfectly doable. Since vinyl flooring planks come with an easy interlocking system, you can easily jump on the journey of actually doing it yourself. At FinishBuild we are here, once again, with the purpose of helping you on do the first moves.

First of all let’s clean the room. Before starting, empty your room of all furniture and make sure that the surface of the room is perfectly smooth by removing nails, debris and scraping up any old adhesive. Take into account that your sub floor needs to be dry as well as be smooth and as even possible because every lump, bump and crease may appear visible. Make a template of the floor using felt paper.


 

Materials you would use:

  1. Pencil
  2. Tape measure
  3. Hammer
  4. Vinyl cutting knife
  5. Sealant
  6. Broom

6 1 300x300 How to Make a Proper Vinyl Flooring DIY InstallationPhase 1:

Once we have a clean surface, there is an important move you should definitely consider if you are aiming for outstanding results: Level your subfloor​, generally vinyl planks flooring products can be install onto existed flooring surfaces. Therefore check the condition of your subfloor, if a surface is in poor conditions, you may need to substitute it. You can drill in a plywood underlayment with screws fairly easily, nevertheless it is important to screw heads below the surface of the wood. If you install an underlayment over your existing subfloor, make sure the surface is level. Afterwards, sealing is our next step. Paint a coat of sealant onto your subfloor. Protect the bottom of your walls or cabinets with strips of masking tape to avoid splash. Once the floor is sealed, let it cure for as long as required before you start laying your vinyl planks.

Phase 2:

Now is time for you to make an important choice. Decide on which direction you will lay your vinyl planks. Subsequently, measure the floor to work out where the middle of your middle row will sit. This is your middle line. In order to be double extra sure, I personally suggest (and if you have the time) to face vinyl planks on the floor to get a clear idea of how can tiles adjust to the space. This also can help you to get a visual plus of the vinyl planks you might have to cut in order to fit edges. Next, hammer a nail at each end of this line and then tie a string chalk line between them. Snap your string chalk line to mark your center line on the floor.

Now proceed to set each plank by laying the first row of vinyl plank flooring, whether is by peeling them off on the back for each plank (in the case they are the adhesive type) or by assemble them if they come with the interlocking system. Subsequently flatten them it into place, over the top of the center line and remember that each vinyl plank has a directional arrow on its backing paper. At FinishBuild we strongly suggest that in order to obtain the finest visual result, lay all your planks facing the same way.

Lay the second row of vinyl plank flooring next to the first. Stagger the second row so the end of each plank lines up with the middle of the plank in the previous row. When laying the third row of planks, use your combination square to make sure its joins line up with the joins in the first row and try to maintain this staggered pattern going the whole way across the floor.

Phase 3:

pros and cons of vinyl flooring destacada 8 300x300 How to Make a Proper Vinyl Flooring DIY InstallationOn this phase you must let go the extra vinyl material. Some of your vinyl floor planks will need to be trimmed to fit around the floor corners. Take into account that in phase 2 you can be aware of how much material is not going to be longer needed however, this phase allows you to measure and mark out your lines on each plank and make your cuts with a trimming knife. In order to get finest results, go over the cut line two or three times instead of trying to cut all at once. When your trim is finished, remove the backing paper and stick the plank in place hoping for the best. We recommend you (in case you have adhesive type) to curve and bend the board as you lay it down, visualize that when installing part of the vinyl plank would be against the floor while the part yet to be placed is in the air. Successively, roll the board down and onto the surface of your floor. The aim with this procedure is to avoid the development of air pockets, however you can also help yourself with a piece of fabric on your hand to press the boards to the ground.

4 300x300 How to Make a Proper Vinyl Flooring DIY Installation

To sum up, after installation, clean adhesive from tile surfaces with wet cloth. Fasten trim and moldings to the wall, not the flooring. In addition, avoid heavy traffic on the new installation for at least 72 hours while adhesive sets.

kitchen decorating ideas go further this year 300x75 Kitchen Decorating Ideas: Go Further This Year

To me, kitchens are those special rooms in the house where people create simple or very elaborated meals that nutritiously fuels the bodies, minds and souls of love ones and friends all over the world; so if life is created in the bedroom, then it is definitely lived in the kitchen. With all the technology improvements we are experiencing these days, it is very easy to provide homeowners with constant stream of inspiration that encourages them to plan a refreshment or a total re-do of their kitchens. Since the most important room of any home is constantly evolving regarding designs and trends, incorporating trendy updates has become an essential improvement project, which will bring your kitchen into its best 21st century version.

THE DARK SIDE OF KITCHENS HOW TO WORK WITH BLACK 10 300x300 Kitchen Decorating Ideas: Go Further This YearToday it is important to understand that even though kitchens were not always where families congregated for breakfast or a light meal, over the course of the past 20 years these rooms started to become living spaces, where people spend more time than just cooking and therefore it is highly worthy to strive to create a kitchen that looks its best. The following are my favorite ways to add updated style to your kitchen this year; I believe this post is just in time for you to include it in your 2017 list’s resolutions.

Open Shelving Has Come To Stay

Take your kitchen style further with the latest trend many homeowners are following. Separating the kitchen and the dining room is getting obsolete; instead you can skip your kitchen islands entirely and bring elements of the living and dining rooms into this magnificent area. Open shelving kitchens have the amazing ability to showcase beautiful dishes, drink ware, serving pieces and of course those new pieces such as living room furniture that would definitely make from your kitchen a very livable space where family and guest can hang out and not just cook.

Avoid the Standard Kitchen Hardware Design

Remember that your kitchen’s hardware is just like the jewelry for this important area of your home, fortunately in 2017 there are incredible options out there to pick than ever before. Do not stick on nickel brass bar pulls from the big box store, it is time to be bold and choose something else, something special and detailed on hardware, some of the most common choices are: hammered finishes or leather trim. And for your sink design, there is a marvelous alternative; imagine an extra sink that will banish daily complains from family and guests about not having enough counter space. Double sinks mean two people pleasantly cooking or doing the dishes, this is probably the ideal pick for families who like to cook together.

#thowbacktuesday Every Single Day

THE DARK SIDE OF KITCHENS HOW TO WORK WITH BLACK 7 300x300 Kitchen Decorating Ideas: Go Further This YearRetro appliances style is back and I particularly love the idea. We all know that stainless steel appliances have been the focal point in kitchens for so many years and there is not something quite appealing than industrial homes kitchens. However rounded edges fridges which are now taller and have a skinnier appearance are superb, clean, cool and modern because they harmoniously blend in retro style and functionality, white kitchen with this type of appliances will look just great!

Wide-ranging Hardware Finishes

Monochromatic kitchen style may look amazing but in 2017 you can opt for not going with this kitchen style, instead strive to choose appliances and accessories with different finishes for instance, bronze accents in your kitchen are getting special attention whether if you place them in minor details or let them play a starring role in your kitchen. This color make your appliances pop up, consider vases trays, drawer pulls and light fixtures, all of them set up by bronze accents, your kitchen will turn into a truly one-of-a-kind space.

Marvelous Countertops

Sometimes homeowners consider granite as a fussy and pricey option for their kitchens, so why don’t opt for concrete or engineered countertops? Concrete countertops are totally taking over this year, not to mention that is not so expensive, durable and cool. Going to the other extreme, you can also choose engineered countertops as they are nonporous, yet still offers that amazing look and feel of natural stone.

Two Tones in your Kitchen Cabinets

If you are a homeowner who finds it difficult to pick only one color for your cabinets, then let me tell you this year things are changing as you can mix up your kitchen’s palette. Whether you love the classic black and white layered look in your kitchen, or you would like to use any other complementary colors for your upper and lower cabinetry such as navy blue, soft gray, you will absolutely create an interesting contrast.

THE DARK SIDE OF KITCHENS HOW TO WORK WITH BLACK 12 300x300 Kitchen Decorating Ideas: Go Further This YearKitchens are the heart of the homes, and I like to believe it is true. Moreover, much of the importance of this functional room depends on the family and their lifestyle; newer kitchen designs has begun now to open up to other rooms and as a result, homeowners started to enlarge their own kitchen spaces to follow this great trend in order to enjoy of both lifestyle and resale purposes.

Whether you own a small or a large kitchen, it is key for you to know that today’s kitchen is way more than a kitchen, and therefore functionality is as important as the often upgrades you can give to it; this room is ever evolving based on each family’s busy and varied lifestyle. In addition, kitchen appliances are constantly changing and this is why you need to keep yourself updated with the new products, concepts and designs that emerge into the home marketplace every year.

At this point it is worthwhile to let you know that in FinishBuild you can find a great variety of kitchen appliances which not only are environmentally friendly that cut down on our footprint, but also contribute to the dreamy and trendy design you have in mind; visit our online store and find out everything we have to offer you for your next kitchen remodel or refreshment…you dream it, we Build it!

These extensive amounts of oxygen sources are also responsible of being an important part of flooring products, furniture, construction additions, and even pharmaceutical products, therefore in order to maintain the balance between each field, regulations are very authoritarian regarding the purposes of the nature resource. According to The Forestry Florida Association Statewide, there are 17.3 million acres of forests, which a 15.4 million acres of those timberlands belongs to working forests. Of this 15.4, 71% of these forest areas are privately owned; the rest is owned by state and local (18%) and federal (11%) governments.

Flooring Popular Florida Wood Selections

According to the Universty of Florida, IFAS extention, species selection are bases on pines growth in Florida.  These include slash pine, longleaf pine, loblolly pine, and sand pine.  Other pines that grow in Florida, which have little commercial value, include pond pine, spruce pine, and shortleaf pine.

When it comes about commercial purpose, there are some factors that must be considered, like potential for germination, potential for survival and establishment, potential for good growth rates and potential for mature trees to set seed. This guidelines are justified in order to maintain productivity of the material in every each field of manufacture.

Pine:

Pine is one of the most charming look you can use in the flooring field. Due to its marvelous light tones, pines are grown in plantations for timber, which tend to be more resinous, and therefore more durable than neat. This a type of wood can be widely used in carpentry items such as furniture, window frames, paneling and roofing. In Florida, pine plantations can be found in Lafayette County and Jefferson County. It is important to mention that in pine plantation since this type of wood requires a gentle treatment, procedures such as, components analysis and durability examinations.

Therefore, if you are into humble but fascinating looks the grain in the pine can stand on its own. Pine lumber can also be very resistant to decay and rotting, however, make sure of getting a pine lumber materials that has been pressure treated.

Cedar:

Natural looks are never underestimated and wood is one of the choices on decking materials nowadays. Cedar trees often live a long time, and regarding its wood is also very resistant to bugs. Its natural oils in the wood of cedar are toxic to insects, which makes of this species an appealing choice to a decking project.  Nevertheless the heartwood of the tree the deeper colored red part, is on the other hand, rot resistant.

Pros & Cons: Cedar wood discards voluntarily moisture absorption which allows this type of wood to lie flat and straight. Regarding the color, you have to clean it and reseal it every year or two in order to maintain its attractiveness. However, it is harsh to keep that warm, rich, natural and fresh look. Cedar wood can vary on its cost from moderate, to high prices, it depends on the species as we mention before. On any case if you are into Cedar for its kindness you might have to dedicate part of your time taking care of it through the years.

Flooring Uses of  Wood Remains

Leftovers on wood plantations are never overrated, on the contrary, they are responsible of other flooring products such as:

    destacada 300x138 Dos and Don’ts When Buying a Sofa

Living rooms are perhaps the most used spaces in any home, in this area you and your family spend quality time whether in front of the television or simply having a fruitful conversation with each other. Your living room is also where you receive your loved ones and guests in order to catch up with them. Planning the design of this significant area of your home should be then of prime importance; your family needs to contribute with their ideas of how their living will look and you can play the role of an interior designer, remember that the way your living looks will depend essentially on the type of furniture that you want to place in this room of the house.

1 300x300 Dos and Don’ts When Buying a SofaBefore to start visiting any showroom or purchasing your furnishings, you should visualize your living and ask yourself a couple of questions like what kind of mood do you want to have in your living room? What furniture material best suits your living room’s needs? Or who is going to use the living room? Once you are aware of these answers, the designing project gets easier to execute; furniture spacing and layout is key to achieve both comfort and function. Buying the sofa you will place in the living is therefore a big decision since this is a central spot in any household. With all those amazing options in the furniture market, there are plenty of comfortable and stylish sofas; today I would like to share with you some dos and don’ts you may want to keep in mind before taking your final decision on your next sofa, a choice that also represents a large investment of income.

Do’s When Buying a Sofa

Strive to always have a clear sofa goal in mind: this way you analyze what is the goal you will achieve with such an important decorating piece. There are so many different types of sofas out there in the home market, they absolutely can address specific requirements for your day to day life, but it will be really helpful to think carefully what will be the use you will give to the sofa. Requirements are as varied as people’s needs; there are couches which are deep and very soft, this is a different address if you are looking for a firm sofa with tight back that offers you the possibility to help you maintain a correct posture.

2 300x300 Dos and Don’ts When Buying a SofaMake sure to check the hood: to study the sofa’s poor or well construction as well as the materials is made of. Run one of your hands over the back of the sofa, and find out if it is poor quality; in case you feel it has a hollow back, then this is a clear indication of a poor construction, because good sofas are generally well padded back so the perform a long lifespan.

Measure your doorways: as insignificant as may sound, this should be the first thing you need to do; by measuring the sofa dimension you make sure that will get through the doorways, around the corners and up the stairs at your house or apartment. Measure the entrances of your house, and the possible doorways. Once you are at the store, measure the width, depth and height of that dreamy sofa you would like to take home.

Strive to keep learning about sofas, even when you already purchase yours: aspects like covering your sofa for protection purposes with an appropriate fabric, because you have kids and pets at home are necessary to know since with that knowledge you ease your life as you keep a clean sofa that is protected from spills and dirt. Be also aware of the fact that sofas come in a wide variety of styles and sizes (curvy, round, straight), will help you make your smarter choices.

Don’ts When Buying a Sofa

4 300x200 Dos and Don’ts When Buying a SofaAvoid the idea of buying a sofa only because is cheap: remember that the better is the quality of the sofa you have decided to invest in, the longer you will enjoy its lifespan. If you ask me, I rather invest in a good sofa built with great materials than a couch that costs less but will lead me to replace it a few months after I purchased. An average quality sofa easily lasts as long as 10 years, while a top quality- end sofa will go over two decades.

Do not forget that proportion counts: this happens especially with a sectional or an L- shape sofa, which can often overwhelm the living room. On a sectional, try to do a tight back instead of loose cushions; this will help keep the overall profile from becoming overwhelming, you can keep the back objectively low (32”), and in this way you are making the sectional feel a little less daunting.

5 300x200 Dos and Don’ts When Buying a SofaDo not always opt for neutral stylish look: since the other elements in the room can offer color cues, in order to establish calm, choose a sofa with a upholstery that is solid and is the same color as the walls and curtains.

As I mentioned earlier, choosing a sofa is a crucial decision since this piece of furniture will be placed at the main showcase of your house. In terms of finances, purchasing a sofa requires quite an amount of money, however if you strive to find  a top quality one, be sure that it will stay in the house for long years before you need to replace it. As you can read it is very important for you to plan well what type of sofa to place in the living room before buying it, these dos and don’ts definitely can help you to avoid living with a bad choice for years to come.

Fixing Chewed Chairs

TIPS ON HOW TO DIY REPAIR YOUR FURNITURE 2 300x300 Tips on How To DIY Repair Your FurnitureEven though you have bought a bone, a toy or a piece of wood for your dog to chew in order to keep him away from chewing you chairs’ legs, your pet just find it enjoyable chewing them. Unfortunately, chew marks ruin the look of the furniture and most of the times also affect its structural integrity. To repair this problem you will need:

  • 220- Grit sandpaper
  • A putty knife
  • Fan bush
  • Auto body filler
  • Paper
  • Mineral spirits

Start this fixing by taking a look of the damaged area and clean it up, this way it is ready to be repair. Using the utility knife, scrape away any frayed edges of wood that stick out from the surface. What you should do next is to apply the auto- body filler on the chewed area; you might need to do a few applications more in order to build up the area so it will be level with the surrounding area. Once it dries, it is time to sand it down to the final shape. To accomplish a smooth sanding, use a 150- grit sandpaper on the filled area; sand both the edges where the filler meets and the non- damaged areas to feather it all together. Now you need to add color to your furnishing and a good tip is to mix the tone you have chosen with a little white to lighten, or black if you need to darken the color. In addition, colors like red, yellow or orange may help achieve the proper wood tone you would like to have. It is also important to make notice that once the acrylic paint is dried, you need to spray a couple of clear lacquer coats over the area, make sure the coats are light and start with a sheen that is slightly shinier than you need.

base destacada 300x75 What you Need To Know Before Renovating Cabinets

Kitchens are the most essential area in any home, and I am sure that most of people would agree on that; this room is the center of our family’s day to day living. When I think about the kitchen, I can easily portrait my family every morning with a cup of coffee or taking an energizing breakfast that will help them to start a great day. Since you deserve to begin every day in a calm and attractive environment, where you can prepare your favorite meals for you and your family, it is important to have a cook space that can performs both a smart- looking and functionality at its best. When it comes to kitchen renovation, it is not a secret that this is a home improvement project that takes certain considerations and a significant number of aspects to carefully think about. My goal with this post is to let you know some interesting factors to consider before starting any remodel project, I have focused mainly on the kitchen cabinets as they can transformed an out-of-date and inefficient kitchen into an organized, multitasking and most important functional area to cook in.

Choose a Certified Brand

types and materials for cabinet2a 300x300 What you Need To Know Before Renovating CabinetsThe best idea you can consider is looking for products that are certified by the Kitchen Cabinet Manufactures Association; they are subjected to tests, which imitate years of normal kitchen abuse. When you pick products from this type of manufacturers, your cabinets certified to resist exposure to humidity, temperatures that range from -5 up to 120 degrees Fahrenheit, as well as resisting those kitchen mainstays such as vinegar, lemon, ketchup and coffee without performing signs of blistering or discoloration.

Get to Understand the Argot

Take time to understand what each of the product has to offer, and get relate with the cabinet lingo. With this I mean you need to know that stock and semicustom cabinets are the most popular types on the home kitchen market due to its affordable price, quick delivery and increasing accessory options. Also, you should know that when they tell you about semicustom cabinet models, they are basically offering you a wider variety of sizes, finishes and styles. And when you hear about custom cabinets, know that they are the most expensive alternative in the market and thus, they can take up to 12 weeks to fabricate the ones that you want.

There Is a Chance to Ease Your Life

Thanks to technology advances, today’s cabinets come with user- friendly options such as full extension roll- out shelves that do not allow you to scrape your knuckles when you are trying to reach for items buried deep in the back. What’s more, large drawers in base cabinets hold pots, pans and even dry goods; this is why they are as popular as pull- out recycling bins. In addition, you can also make sure to explore the possibilities of built- in open storage systems such as wine racks or china displays, they look gorgeous in your kitchen even when they are empty.

How to Save on Cabinets

The approach to create a functional and gorgeous kitchen can require a considerable money investment, however due to the fact that taking down walls, moving gas lines, plumbing connections and electrical wiring will certainly eat away your budget, so whether you count on a 5,000 or 50,000$ financial plan to achieve the remodel of your kitchen, you might want to consider keeping your current layout and also:

Choose a manufacturer that is able to offer you the door style and finish you want on your cabinets as a standard option, this way you avoid up- charges.

Try not to pay for factory- built of custom organizers; a good idea may be aftermarket utensil dividers, rollout trays and also back of the door spice racks, they are absolutely a fraction of the cost, you can visit our website to compare prices and make sure of it.

Custom configurations may need more money investment; instead you can opt for using stock wine organizers, cubby units or even appliance panels that suitably fit those difficult spaces that otherwise require you to buy a custom cabinet.

Arrange a temporary kitchen

Setting up a temporary cook space will go a long way to help you and your loved ones organize those daily activities they used to develop every morning. Many people choose the basement as the area to set their temporary kitchen; with a wash station, hot plate and a small refrigerator you and your family will be armed enough to face that provisional period of time. Additionally, I would like to mention that you will also need a place in that basement where to store perishable items, for instance vegetables and milk. Furthermore, there is something else you should include in this important step towards your kitchen renovation; pre- make and freeze meals, because you will only be able to use a microwave or a slow cooker pot. Strive to place any of these appliances in an unaffected area of your home, so even if you do not have a proper kitchen at this point, at least you will keep giving good quality to your meals.

Your kitchen is the most suitable room in your home for occasional or frequent family and guests’ gatherings, this is one of the reasons this area should be as eye- catching and functional as possible, where anyone in it feels welcomed and comfortable. This bonging area not only ties your home together but also ties your loved ones together, so I truly believe it is well worthy to invest your time, money and creativity on remodeling such a warming area. As I have already mentioned, this is definitely not an easy task to accomplish but remember that today there are plenty of aesthetic options you can consider to renew your kitchen’s look. Important steps such as asking yourself some questions regarding your kitchen’s needs and function, visiting a showroom to see the best cabinets samples (finishes and many different price point options), as well as asking a professional for help will be determining on creating the cook area you have always coveted.
