Tips for Creating a Home Office

Advances in technology and business practices have made working from home much more common than ever before, with more people regularly working remotely instead of spending all their time inside an office.

There’s lots of advantages to working from home, including the savings in time and money created by skipping the daily commute. However, it does create the need to supply yourself with a pleasant and efficient work space, instead of relying on your employers to do if for you.

Your home office needs to be somewhere that you can work from comfortably and without distraction, otherwise your work will suffer and you will find your remote privileges being reassessed quite quickly.

Here’s some helpful tips for creating a home office!

Get the computer furniture right

If you’re working from home, the chances are that your main essential work device is a computer, so you need to ensure that your office is set up correctly. If you use a laptop, a stand might be required to get the screen matching you’re height to safely use for extended periods of time. If you’re still using a desktop, a simple thing like a CPU holder to store it under your desk will make a big difference.

Get comfortable

Being at home gives you more freedom to move around than at work, but the visions of sunning yourself in the garden are likely to stay as visions rather than the reality. You’re more likely to stay seated at your desk for the majority of the day. So you need to get a comfortable ergonomic chair and quite possibly a foot rest to make sure that you don’t end the day with aches and pains.

Don’t forget the little things

There’s more to your desk in your home office than just a computer, so don’t neglect stocking up on things like pens and markers and post-it notes. You will still need to use these just as often as if you were in a real office, but now you can’t just get them from the stationery cupboard.

Think about storage

This is another aspect that we take for granted when we go to work; having somewhere to store our papers and notepads, etc. It’s possibly even more important in a home office, where your work information could potentially mix in with all of your home paperwork like insurance documents, bank statements, etc. It’s best to invest in a separate filing cabinet and drawers to ensure that work documents aren’t mislaid.

Make it a nice place to be

Don’t forget this is your home. You may be getting paid to work, but it’s still your property and you have the right to decorate however you want (as long as it looks professional when you’re on Skype calls, etc), so make sure you’re enjoying the benefits of being in your own home by making it look the way you want it to look, even if it’s just a case of having some flowers on display.

Tips to Prepare your Home for Fall Weather

Fall has arrived and that means the weather is getting cooler (unless you happen to live in one of those always-sunny states). The leaves will be falling and so will the rain as winter edges closer and closer. That means it’s time to prepare your home for some rough conditions.

fall 2

During the summer months, you may have taken the weather for granted, spending your afternoons and evening outdoors, enjoying your garden, but those days are gone until next year. There’s lots to enjoy about the new Fall season, but also the potential for issues to arise that can affect your property and your safety.

fall 1

Below are some handy tips to help you avoid this and prepare your home for the new Fall season.

Get your garden ready

You’ll be spending less time in your garden, but you can’t afford to ignore it over the Fall and Winter otherwise you’ll have a huge job on your hands when Spring finally comes around. Get your garden ready with the right tools whether for pruning flowers or pressure washing patio areas prior to storage to keep them from getting grimy and slippery.

Storage and protection

You also need to ensure that your outdoor furniture is protected from the elements with tarps to avoid cold moisture which can freeze and cause damage. You don’t want to find out that they’ve been ruined when the time comes to use them again. You may want to look into some new storage options to make sure you have somewhere to keep your outdoor items that are safe and secure.

 

Invest in lighting

As the nights will become darker earlier in the coming months, you may need to think about adding more illumination to your yard or outdoor pathway to give you better access after the sun goes down, and also boost your overall security. In Fall, outdoor lighting becomes very important.

 

Prepare for icy weather

As Fall moves towards winter, icy mornings will become more common and you need to ensure that the weather doesn’t affect your ability to go about your daily business. Deicing cables and driveway heating cables will help you do that by eliminating unwanted ice. They’re easy to install and are certainly worth looking into!

Keep your home safe

The colder weather and early sunsets will make it more likely that you will be lighting your home with candles and warming it with  a fireplace. This can create a lovely, cozy atmosphere, but it can also represent an increased risk to your home, so you need to make sure you are protected with top quality smoke detectors to warn you of any potential hazards.

Tips for Basement Development or Renovation

When it comes to finding ways to boost the resale value of your house or simply making it a nicer place to live, renovating or developing your basement is one of the most popular projects to undertake. After all, why not transform a dusty, under-used portion of your home for something more than storing old junk?

basement 1

It can be a particularly tempting idea for parents of older children who are currently unable to afford moving out, as the basement can offer an option for more independent living and privacy for both generations.

 

However, it’s a costly and complicated procedure and not one you can initiate without knowing what you’re doing while using the proper tools. Below are some of our top tips for basement development or renovation:

Think about usage

This has to be the first step. You need to know exactly what you will be using the new space for, as this will influence much of what you do next, otherwise you’ll have spent time and money to create a space that doesn’t fit the purpose intended and won’t get used any more then your currently basement situation.

Plan for the functionality

If you are intending to use the basement for family members as living space, you’ll need to factor in the plumbing side of things at an early stage to make sure you get everything necessary in place before it’s too late to do properly.

Know what you’re dealing with down there

Another important early step is to do proper measurements and checks to make sure you have the correct dimensions and that you are aware of any potential problems with temperature or leaking pipes etc. Infrared thermometers can be useful tools at this stage to help you identify any problem areas that aren’t obvious to the naked eye.

Get the flooring done right

One of the main issues you can have with a basement conversion is that it can seem cooler than the rest of your house, so you need to make sure you have the right flooring or carpeting to help it feel more welcoming rather than chilly.

Get the tools for the job

If you’re going to be doing the bulk of the work yourself, you need to make sure you have the right tools, whether for dealing with concrete through the use of demolition hammers or using saws and blades for woodworking or screwdrivers for assembling some of the furniture, light fixtures, and door knobs. You will most likely end up using almost every kind of tool imaginable, so don’t find yourself getting stuck from not being fully prepared.

Tips for Bathroom Renovation Ideas

The way your bathroom looks and feels is one of the most important aspects of your home. It’s the room that gets a lot of use for the most basic needs but is also the place where you can – or at least should – feel the most pampered and relaxed. It’s also the room that requires the most cleaning so that it can be kept mold-free with a welcoming appearance.

bathroom 1

When it comes to renovating your bathroom, you need to take great care and consideration not only for the aesthetics but also the practical elements, which makes it a challenge, but not an impossible one. You need to know what you’re doing and be sensible, so that you can create a bathroom that’s memorable for all the right reasons, whatever the purpose of the visit is.

Below are some of our top tips for bathroom renovation ideas:

 

  • Get the layout right – This is definitely an area that needs a blend of what looks good with what works best. Generally it’s advised that you shouldn’t be able to see the toilet when the door is open because it’s not the first thing your guests should see when they walk past your bathroom, but equally you need to have your measurements right because you need to have your toilet in a position where it’s comfortable to actually use. And don’t forget about the less glamorous things to keep in mind like drain taps which you may need to think about.

 

  • Treat yourself to a good shower unit – Not much de-stresses you after a bad day like a nice hot and powerful shower, so when you’re renovating, make sure you buy a shower panel and unit that does exactly what you’re looking for. There’s lots of great options, like massage jets that can add extra luxury for your shower experience.

  • Get the right mirror in the proper positionMirrors are incredibly important inside a bathroom, and not just because they are needed to help you prepare for your day. They can add an additional element of style to your room if you choose a mirror that fits with your theme. The way they reflect light around the room can mean the difference between a dark and gloomy bathroom and a bright and vibrant one.

Applications for Projector Screens & How to Choose the Right Size

Projectors have been around for decades. The idea behind them dates back to the dawn of the first century AD with the use of Chinese magic mirrors. Projectors as we know them today have been in use since the early 20th century. Like vinyl records, they have been called obsolete many times since digital alternatives arrived, and like vinyl, projectors have been staging a comeback in recent years.

Of course, if you are going to buy a projector, you also need a good quality projector screen in order to view a good quality image. But what kind of applications are there for a projector screen and how do you know what size of screen to choose from that will meet your requirements?

 

Business presentations

Traditionally, this is what most of us think of when it comes to using a projector screen, presenting information at a business event or conference. In these situations you will want to have a larger screen so that as many people as possible will be able to easily see what you are showing them.

Schools and training sessions

Another classic use of projectors, having the right screen for your training session or school class, means that you can convey the information and visuals you need in order to help your students learn the information that’s required. Your screen doesn’t need to be quite as large as you will be in a smaller room, but a tripod is a good option for making sure none of the screen is hidden from view.

Showing movies and playing games

Modern projectors are often the best method for showing movies because of the image size they are capable of projecting without the picture quality getting lost in the process. They can also work as a highly immersive way to play video games. You’ll need to make sure you have the right kind of projector for this application, and also the right screen, which is as large as you can fit in the room and preferably one that sits on the floor.

Displaying photos at family functions

Whether it is at a birthday party or wedding, you can use a projector screen to display photos for entertainment, nostalgia or dramatic effect. With the right projector, you can produce a high quality image from whatever input you use to add the photos. A larger screen will do them justice, which can be particularly impressive if you are showing some of the official wedding photography at the reception.
