The ranch house floor plan was the American Dream in a box from the late 1940s to the mid 1960s. Sliding glass doors, kidney shaped swimming pools and back yard patios created a new informal way of entertaining guests. Though the ranch house floor plan was the embodiment of casual living, most homes of that era lacked architectural details that would make them memorable. By the 1970s, the ranch style house was replaced by the split level home with Colonial or English details. The 1980s saw a reversal of the ranch house floor plan formula that included showy front entries with grand staircases and vaulted ceilings while the back of the house was left almost naked. The only remains of the ranch house floor plan today are the open floor plans, great rooms and hearth kitchens and the current popular trend of an outdoor room. All leftovers from the original ranch style housing era.
Maintaining Your Ceramic Tile Flooring. Ceramic tiles are quite easy to maintain. They require very little effort to clean - but a mop and warm water must be used on them regularly to keep them looking fresh and bright. Now and then, a mild detergent solution can be used on your tiled flooring - and a little bit of scrubbing will help remove the odd stain. Your furniture legs should have felt pads on them to avoid scratching the tiles. If tiles are damaged, replace the entire tile with a new one that looks identical to your old tile, using the same process you used to install the tile.
When you used to think of tile flooring, you may have thought white, off white, or black as that was pretty much what was available. It may have had a marble swirl added to it, but on the whole it was pretty plain looking. It was still very eye appealing, but not really overly fancy. Today, you will find all kinds of tiles in all types of colors and many have beautiful borders available to match. You can get tile flooring in solid colors as well, but in a bigger variety of colors and textures. Instead of mostly smooth tiles, you can find tile flooring in textures that are raised or dimpled. You will find it glossy or dull depending on the look you are after.
Take some time out to visit restaurants in your area, this is another simple way to look at samples of restaurant floor plans. Carry a notebook to take notes on the floor plan you are reviewing, go buy a cup of coffee, and analyze their floor plan and ask yourself again, what is good and bad about the floor plan and what would you change to maximize sales and minimize losses for their restaurant. In doing this you are getting ideas on what to do and not do to your own restaurant. Most people do not realize that the floor plan and lay out of the restaurant is absolutely essential when it comes to producing a successful business. The first part of the floor plan that should be considered is the kitchen. After all, the kitchen is the life of a restaurant.
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.
