It might seem obvious that a floor plan is needed to evaluate a space since Feng Shui deals with how people are affected by the architecture. And yet, many Feng Shui practitioners try to wing it and advise clients without a drawn floor plan to refer to. Firstly, we need to have a to-scale floor plan sketch in order to accurately divide up the areas into directional zones. We have mathematical rules about how to divide up the spaces. Since we use elements strategically in classical Feng Shui, it should be unthinkable to risk placing an element in the wrong area. And yet, some schools rely heavily on \"intention\" and cultural placebos to modify spaces. I would agree that if this were a practitioner’s only source of recommendations, that the precise placement of them may not be their concern. But in classical Xuan Kong Flying Star School, we are attempting to change the magnetic field of certain areas, so the boundaries of each area have to be recognized. As an example, if you intend to place water in the east sector of a house, you need to make sure it is not actually in the Northeast or the Southeast. In the same way that an acupuncturist does not place needles randomly anywhere on the body, we have to know the correct locations for placing such elements as water, wood, fire, earth or metal.
Measure Everything. The next step of your ceramic tile flooring installation is the accurate measuring of your floor and your tiles. This is necessary for you to be able to calculate exactly how many tiles you will need. You must measure the length and width of the section of floor you are going to tile and also the length and width of each tile. Then you must calculate, using these numbers, exactly how many tiles you are going to use, which will depend on the orientation of each tile as you have decided to place it on the floor, as well. Then you must find the mid-points of the length and the width of the floor you want to carry out your ceramic tile flooring installation process on; connect these midpoints to form a plus across the floor space. The intersection of the two lines of the plus is the center of your floor space; it is here that you must begin your ceramic tile flooring installation.
If you are going to be building a new home and you haven’t decided on a floor plan, there are new plans that have been designed to help those achieve the home of their dreams. It can be difficult to come up with your own, but fortunately these new home floor plans that are available can make the process considerably easier for you. Yes, it is true that magazines and other publications can offer you great ideas for your home, but there are certainly more options than that available for you. You want to look at new home floor plans that will create a great habitat for those things that are important to you. You don’t want a home that is not going to fit you and everything you want to put in it. That is why you must study new home floor plans if you don’t create your own. These new home floor plans will present you with all of the ideas that you need to give your home that perfect layout.
Keep Your Tools Ready. The first thing to do is to make sure that the tools you will use are ready at hand. These tools should include basic carpentry tools like an accurate measuring tape, a carpenter’s square and a bubble level. You should also be prepared with the tiles and all you need to space them and put them together: tile spaces, a tile cutter, a trowel, and a putty knife. Then you must get your adhesives ready: tile bonding material, thin set mortar or tile adhesive, the sealant, the grout and a rubber grout float. Also you must make sure that you are wearing work clothes or overalls, glasses and heavy-duty gloves for safety.
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.
