Selecting your backyard or patio replacement cushions can sometimes be a difficult task. With so many homeware stores offering a variety of fabrics, colors, and themes, finding the right one can be overwhelming. Here are some tips on how to choose the right cushions for your space.

Let your surroundings guide your choice. – Look at your surrounding and see what you currently have in it. For example, if you have a plain neutral backdrop and you want to make a bold statement, you could choose a pop of color to differentiate your space from the garden.

Decide on a theme – Themes are great, as they will help you stay focused on what you should and shouldn’t buy. For example, a minimalistic theme will look best with soft neutral shades for your wicker chairs and sofa. If you want something that is shabby-chic, you could look into a light dusty gray with white and light pink throw pillows.

Choose styles you want to emulate – If you want your garden seating to stand out from your indoor space, you should look at themes and colors that are different from your interior. On the other hand, if you’re looking to blend in your outdoor space to your indoor area, try to match your furnishings according to what you currently own.

Comfort – The fabrics and cushioning you choose should be comfortable and suitable for its use. Your selection should change if your space is for lounging, dining or entertaining.

Breaking Down Home and Commercial Insulation

Article written by Fusion Cafe inc.

There are several different types of insulation materials that are used inside a household or commercial building. Because of the high costs that come with energy consumption, many homeowners have begun insulating their homes to try and cut costs.

By blanketing your walls and ceilings with these insulation materials, you can prevent heat from escaping during the colder, winter season. On summer days, insulation layers prevent excess heat from entering the household. This grants the homeowner relief from the changing weather patterns as well as lowers the need to leave on electrical appliances for long periods of time.

Polystyrene Insulation is one of the insulation materials used in both residential and commercial buildings. It is a “green insulation” product, meaning that it is all-natural.

A commonly used product in homes, polystyrene insulation can withstand extreme temperature highs as well as offer soundproofing capabilities. It is also waterproof, which adds an additional protective layer to the inside of your home when the rainy season comes in full force.

Breaking Down Home and Commercial Insulation.pngCertain areas absolutely require waterproof material to prevent interior damage. Homeowners living in Vancouver, Canada for example, experience heavy rainfall throughout the year, forcing insulation products to be flood-friendly.

Polyurethane is a waterproof, closed-cell foam insulation material that is commonly used in households. Because of its durability and versatility, it’s a solid choice for homeowners. One of the biggest advantages that polyurethane has over other insulation materials is that it adds structural integrity to the building that is has been applied in. It’s the only insulation material on the market that can currently provide that asset to residential and commercial building owners. It’s no wonder why the insulation material of choice is closed cell foam in Canada.

It may be tough to figure out when to replace your mattress, so keep an eye out for any wear and tear when you change your sheets. Mattress owners tend to forget to replace their mattress which only affects your sleep quality in the long run.

When was the last time you changed your mattress? If it’s been more than 6-7 years, you’re overdue for a new one. You can also think back to how your sleeping patterns were back when it was brand new. If you feel like your sleep quality varies and is inconsistent, then it’s most likely that your old mattress won’t provide the same benefits as it used to.The-Top-Signs-That-You-Need-a-New-Mattress

If you are sleeping next to a partner, ask them how their sleep quality has been. If they haven’t been sleeping well, chances are that you weren’t either. This indicates that the motion transfer of the mattress is no longer of use.

Density Matters for Foam Seat Cushions

September 29, 2015 by · Comments Off on Density Matters for Foam Seat Cushions 

Foam Seat CushionsWhen it comes to selecting the right foam for a replacement sofa cushion, density matters. Choose a foam that will stand up to the constant pressure of people sitting on it in order to have cushions that will last.

Written by the Foam Factory, Inc.

Replacing the foam in your sofa cushions is a great way to breathe new life into an older piece of furniture. With a small investment of time and money, you can get your couch to feel as comfortable as it did when it was first purchased. However, not just any foam will do. You need to make sure that you are buying the right cushion foam in order to get the right feel for your sofa.

You might be tempted to go down to your local fabric store and purchase a low density piece of foam to use as the replacement foam cushion. While this can work as a short-term fix if you need something cheap and quickly, you’re also getting what you pay for. Low-density foams will compact and wear down quickly, meaning that you’ll soon have the same problems with uncomfortable foam cushions that you had before.

Instead, it’s important to purchase a foam that is dense enough to last through years of use. As you might expect, the seats on your sofa will see the most impact, so it’s important that they have the foam with the highest density levels. One way to tell this is by looking at the Indentation Load Deflection (ILD) rating of the foam. This is a basic rating that shows the density of the foam. You’ll typically want a foam with an ILD of 25-35 for your sofa seat cushions. Back cushions will receive less constant pressure and can be a lighter density, usually between 15-25 ILD.

Building a Closet on a Budget

August 13, 2015 by · Comments Off on Building a Closet on a Budget 

Diy closet systems can be frustratingly expensive. Luckily, there are ways that you can save money and still create a fashionable closet.

What Price Range You Should Expect to See

There are many kinds of closet storage systems out there on the market that are affordable. You can expect to pay under $200 for a basic set-up, and still have the full functionality of a high-end system. If you are going for a step up and want to add customizable features, you can look to pay $500 to $600. Rather than getting a professional to install it, which is also great, you can save loads of money by pursuing alternative options for your closet system.

Customize Your Closet with Everyday Supplies

Using everyday supplies can be a great substitute. Sometimes, the most unlikely items can serve a purpose. For example, a kitchen utensil rail could hold several ties or belts. Pegboards can be placed on doors to provide a safe haven for your hats and scarves.

The Usefulness of Hangars

Hangars have become sort of a multi-purpose tool now. They have become a big part in closet organization and can clear out a whole bunch of space. Think about it, removing the bulky shoe rack in your room and replacing them with hanging racks can clear up enough room to get that walk in closet design feel to it. Tiered and cascading hangars can hold pants, trousers, shirts, etc. and are a cost-efficient product. The constant demand for more space means big-time changes in your closet, and the addition of more hangars.

Add Some Storage Bins

Storage bins are great for dividing items. You can go with plastic bins to create some order out of your closet chaos. By carefully placing them in an orderly fashion, not only will you prove designer gurus that you can build fashionably, but efficiently as well. Besides, you do not want to lose your sanity when you are looking for that specific watch or set of earrings.

Create Your Organizing System from Scratch

There is also the route of creating your organizing system entirely from scratch. Meaning, there will be plenty of woodworking and elbow grease involved. If you are the handy type and are looking to go this route, remember that measurements should be precise and fit accordingly with the space in your closet. An inch or two off of your mark could potentially force you to start over.

Even with a limited budget, there are still ways that you can organize your closet and still make sure that you do not sacrifice style and purpose.

Getting your home ready for summer

July 24, 2015 by · Comments Off on Getting your home ready for summer 

Each seasonal change brings new set of challenges to home owners. Summer is no different. Getting ready for summer requires some planning and starting early to get ahead.

  • Do a tune-up of your air conditioning system: Best time to do a check-up of the air conditioning system is late spring. Having annual system check-up can add years to your home air conditioning system and save money in the long run. Some estimates that it can save 15 percent each month on your electrical bill. A tune-up could cost $70 to $100. Think of it as maintaining your automobile that can deliver years of trouble free service. A typical check-up include review of functionality of the unit, cleaning of the condenser coil, and any debris cleaning in and around unit. You also need to change air filters twice a year in summer and fall.
  • Check doors and windows for leaks and make necessary repairs: Seasonal changes require proofing of windows and doors to prevent heating or cooling leaks. Do a visual inspection of inside and outside of doors and windows. Caulking failures creates gaps causing leaks. Some people do smoke tests to find leaks. But the best way is to get help from a professional.
