Colonial floor plans are elegant without being ostentatious. Moreover, they have an element of history attached to them. These floor plans come from the early American settlements of the East Coast. Colonial architecture ranged from New England to Georgia and, therefore, there are regional variations in style. Colonial floor plans introduce symmetry, with doors that are centered along with a sensible array of windows. The second story is very similar to the main floor in terms of size. They have brick-facing exteriors or clapboard siding, typically. The contemporary colonial house will have modern facilities.
If developing an ideal floor plan for a starter home becomes too much of a challenge, consider having floor plans drafted and a home built. It can be a lot more costly, but it saves you the hassle of visiting home after home only to be disappointed when things are not what you were hoping for. This is a good option for those with very specific needs, and those who are very picky.
Tile flooring is very easy upkeep. In most cases all you simply do for clean up is, mop it. In today’s choices, you will no longer have to wax the tiles to keep them shiny. The newer tiles have a protective shiny coat to them already so there is no need for waxing. You can get tile choices to match just about any decor look you are after. You can find marble looking tiles with agate inlay added to them or you can find a rock look tile or brick look tile that looks authentic. Tile flooring has come a long way, and you will find that the tiles come in many different sizes. You can get smaller looking tiles to larger ten to twelve inch tiles or even larger if you like. You can special order just about any tile flooring to be cut the size you would like if it doesn’t already come in the cut size you would like.
A house is built with hands, but a home is built with hearts - so the old saying goes. However, too much choice in the form of floor plans can be confusing sometimes. Therefore, an understanding of the different styles and how they suit the individual’s needs and tastes is an essential step in the process of building a home. The bungalow floor plan, for example, suits a laid-back and comfortable lifestyle. It is a popular floor plan throughout America. They are smaller than other modern floor plans. However, they are extremely livable because the living area is open and planned for ease of access. The roof hangs low, the rafters and ridge beams are uncovered, and porches are large, with narrowed quadrangular columns.
Installing Your Ceramic Flooring Tile Yourself. Installing ceramic tiled flooring is a relatively easy job. There are step by step instructional guides available online if you want to take this task upon yourself instead of hiring a handyman. The basics of installing your flooring are quite simple: the first and foremost thing you must do is measure the tiles and your floor accurately using accurate measuring tools. Then you must calculate, using these measurements of widths and lengths, exactly how many tiles you will need. Then you should mark the center of your floor by drawing lines through the mid-points of the width and the length of your floor; the intersection of these lines, of course, is the center of your floor. You must begin tiling from the center and proceed outwards. Use a tile adhesive or a thin set mortar to bond your tile to the sub-floor; you will need to apply pressure to each tile to let the adhesive work. Grout of the same shade as the tiles needs to be put in after the tiles have set. Each of these processes needs twenty-four hours to dry.
