Braided rugs are a great addition to any home that wants a comfortable feel but not too formal looking. Braided rugs are self explanatory, it’s three strips of fabric braided together and then woven into a pattern, usually circular. For an oval rug the center braid should be one inch longer than the width-length in feet. Braided rugs are extremely sturdy, long wearing, comfortable to walk on and are usually easy to care for. A glance in any department store catalog will give you several options to choose from. Some require professional cleaning, others are spot clean, others require spills be sponged up quickly. Today’s rugs are usually reversible so you get double life out of them. When one side is stained too badly or starts looking rough, just turn it over.
There are many ways to enhance the decor of the floor of the house. The simplest method is the use of carpet and rugs which not only covers the floor but also offers to enhance the beauty of the place. The second method is to use the vinyl flooring that has the capability of giving the looks of any other form but the feel is lacking. This is why the use of wood is considered to be luxurious and ambient where the floors are concerned. The use of wood however in the floors is an expensive proposition. This is one of the forms of flooring that has got a relatively high level of maintenance required. Though it is one of the most comfortable forms of flooring, yet because of the level of maintenance is not always preferred.
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.
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.
Installing ceramic tile floors is not as hard as it looks. With a little knowledge and an easy step-by-step guide on how to do it, you can already be tiling your way to your dream floor. Here are some basic ceramic tiling tips you can chew on when you plan on installing ceramic tile floors at your home. Knowing the kind of subfloor you’ll be installing ceramic tile flooring over is important. There are three main types of subfloors you might encounter: Vinyl, plywood, and concrete floors. Installing ceramic tile flooring directly to your vinyl or linoleum subfloor surfaces is greatly discouraged. One, it may contain asbestos fibers; and two, vinyl flooring is not a solid as good ol’ concrete flooring. When installing ceramic tile on vinyl, experts would recommend rough-sanding, or scarifying, the vinyl floor surface first so your tiling mortar has good grip to set on.
