Adding security lighting is the number one step homeowners can take to protect their property from unwanted intruders. Statistics show that burglars bypass targets that are difficult to access without being noticed. A well-designed security lighting system can make would-be robbers think again before approaching your property. This guide will show you how to create an effective, low-cost LED security lighting system for your home or business.

Use many smaller lights rather than fewer, more powerful lights

Big, powerful flood lights are good for open spaces, but can sometimes leave shadows if there are obstacles on your property like buildings and trees. Using a combination of LED flood lights, area lights and wall packs will reduce shadows and blind spots that intruders can use to hide.

Keep lights high and out of reach

It’s important to make it difficult for burglars to tamper with your security system. Many thieves will plan heists for several weeks and finding a way to disable security lights is often a top priority. Even the best security lighting can be rendered useless if an intruder is able to incapacitate the system. Keeping lights high and out of reach will make it difficult for your system to be tampered with. Placing lights high will also soften the light for a pleasant look and increased coverage.

Use Motion Detector Lights

Motion detector lights are an effective way to scare off intruders. Burglars will be on edge during a robbery and having a light flick on as they walk by is often times enough to scare them away. A good combination of LED spotlights and motion detector lights will work to keep intruders off of your property and scare away those who choose to enter.

Focus on Entrances and Exits

Most criminals seek out targets that can be accessed at night without being seen. Ensuring excellent light coverage at all entrances and exits will deter criminals from planning a robbery at your property.

Why LED?

Efficiency: LED lights offer exceptional efficiency and are more cost-effective in the long run. An LED light fixture will use 90% less electricity than an equivalent incandescent. This is also important if your security lights are forced to run on a backup generator. Less energy draw means your lights will last longer on a limited supply of power.

Longevity: A quality LED bulb can have a useful life of 25,000 hours or more. This is more than 25 times long than traditional light bulbs. Safety: LEDs run cooler than conventional light sources and are therefore less of a fire hazard. Durability: LEDs lack filaments or glass enclosures, making them more durable than traditional alternatives. Same colors as traditional bulbs: LEDs can achieve the same colors as traditional bulbs. Use the Kelvin temperature color scale below to help identify the hue a bulb will produce.


Bathroom LED Lighting: Make Use of Your Bathroom for All Its Purposes

It is always advised that the light above the mirror is soft (but not very soft), enough to see your reflection properly. If the illuminance is very low, while using it for vanity purposes, there might be shadows on your face. The light should equally illuminate your face, so instead of having one it is advisable to have multiple bulbs. At the same time, you shouldn’t be using fixtures as this also makes the lighting uneven.

If the light comes from different angles, all parts of your face will be illuminated equally. For example, while applying makeup, you should be sure that both sides of the face are equally made up, but if the light falls differently on both the sides you will never be sure if it isn’t really even or the light is showing it as such.

If you have a bathtub, then you should light the area with soft lights. You draw a bath to calm your nerves and relax and with minimum lighting, you can gain the feeling of being in a spa. In case you have a shower, it is better to have lights away from the water, preferably in the ceiling. It should never be a naked bulb, recessed lighting is a good idea as well.

There should be a lot of lights in the bathroom, but you should be sure that you don’t put it in an unplanned manner. Plan what use every corner will serve and light it accordingly. LED lights are helpful in this as they are cost-effective and bright.

In terms of colours, it is always better to use yellow light since it isn’t harsh. It adds to the aesthetic and makes the bathroom warm, a place to relax. You can also install a dimmer switch to change the light according to your mood and time of the day.

The mirror should also be placed in a way that during the day you have natural lighting. Design the interiors of the bathroom accordingly. There should be ample bright light, it is always great to have an option. Some people also prefer lights over the mirror, so make sure the size of the bulb is proportional to that of the mirror.

Shades over the light may obstruct its illuminance, so if you’d still rather have them, then you should use light colour shades with bright LED bulbs of a higher voltage, probably 60-80 Watts. But the most important thing to keep in mind is all bulbs in the bathroom must be energy saving and cost-effective. Nobody likes to pay an exorbitant electricity bill after all.

While making a bathroom in business places like restaurants and hotels, the interiors are slightly different. People frequent restaurants and hotels to break away from their mundane lives at home and office.

Places like restaurants, clubs and coffee shops require lighting that are long-lasting and can run long hours in the day cost effectively. Since they require lighting at all times and only seldom are they switched off, it is best to choose a LED that is energy efficient. People prefer to have yellow fluorescent LED, however, it is best to use a bulb of 60-80 watts. It makes it easier for people to see their face in the mirror and use it for grooming or touching up. If it is a single door washroom, it is best to have high voltage lighting, but if there are multiple cubicles with a powder room, make sure that is brightly lit. Malls and shopping complexes usually prefer white light or a mix of white and yellow lights. It is best to keep the cubicle medium light and the light near the mirrors to be sharp.

In Hotels, it is preferred that bathrooms use multiple lights for different parts. The light above the bathtub or shower space should have dimmers for the guests to choose their preferences. The main idea behind staying at a hotel is to have a leisure time and relax. Concealed lights are a good idea to create an ambience of relaxation. Guests prefer to have yellow bulbs as it is soft on the eye but is still bright. Over the seat, people prefer a small, soft light, so they can switch that on in case they need to in the night and it isn’t harsh on the eyes. Near the basin and above the mirror, the light should be bright so that the face is evenly lit. It is good to have ceiling lights with covers so that the light is not direct and harsh.

Lighting can create or break an ambience. Harsh lighting in place of relaxation (like the bathtub) can change your mood drastically and not positively. While we may undermine the importance of ambience in the bathroom, it has a lot of effect on our mood. And by playing with lights and styles, you can get the perfect ambiance.

Comments Off on 8 Easy Ways to Make Your Mattress Last Longer


The first thought that comes to our mind while buying a mattress is whether it will provide a comfortable sleep. Once you invest in a good mattress it becomes equally important to maintain them properly in order to make them last longer. While no mattress last forever, one can extend its life by following some basic steps.

Factors Affecting the Lifespan of a Mattress

The lifespan of a mattress depends on certain things like how well you care for it, the type and quality of material used in making them. Innerspring mattress last around 10 years, the higher quality foam mattress can even last for 15 years and hybrid ones are a combination of coils and foams and hence, their lifespan depends on the durability of the material used.

Steps to Make your Mattress Last Longer

  1. Protective Covering: Putting a protective cover on mattress can prove to be a game changer. However neat and tidy you keep your bed, but accidents and spills may happen anytime. A waterproof protector ensures nothing goes from your duvet to your mattress to ruin it. A snug fit protector will save your protector from moving with every movement.
  2. Forbid Bouncing on Mattress: Jumping on the bed as fun puts pressure on the mattress and eventually damages it. The mattress is designed to give sound sleep and cannot bear these unnecessary pressures for long.
  3. Rotate and Flip the Mattress on Regular Intervals: Sleeping on the same spot daily can damage the mattress from that particular area. Rotating and flipping the mattress once in a while is key to keep the mattress in good shape. Rotate your mattress 1800 when the season changes.
  4. Avoid Eating in Bed: Watching TV while munching in bed might seem harmless to most of us, but the tiny crumbs that we scatter and escape our eyes can attract bedbugs. If at all you are going to eat in your bed make sure that you change your sheets frequently. Remove all the linens from the bed and vacuum clean your mattress at least two to three times a year. Spending a little extra time on the seams where most of the build-up tends to settle will help in preventing dust and allergens to settle.
  5. Keep Pets away from your Bed: Letting pets snuggle in bed is an open invitation to the germs, bugs, bacteria and hairs in your bed. Parasites like hookworm and roundworm lay their eggs in the pet’s hair, which can easily shed in your sheets inviting diseases.
  6. Sunlight is the Best Disinfectant: To remove the excess moisture from the mattress due to sweating and humidity, place the mattress in sunlight for two to three hours on a bright sunny day. This also helps in keeping the dust mites population in check.
  7. Follow Manufacturer’s Cleaning Instructions: To keep your sleeping environment clean andyour mattress healthy, wash your mattress as the directions given in the user manual. Soap solution in mild water is good enough for most of stains, but ensure the mattress is completely dry before making the bed. To maintain the foam integrity, avoid using harsh chemical cleaners.

Comments Off on The Ultimate Guide to Different Types of Chairs


There are many types of chairs that you can have in your home. Some chairs were made for the dining table, some for relaxation, some for lounging, and others for beauty and aesthetics.

  • Arm Chair – most houses have this piece of furniture in their homes. It is elegant, sophisticated and customizable.
  • Club Chair – the club chair gets its name from the gentleman’s lounge about two centuries back. All these little places would have chairs like the club chair for the comfort of the sitter. They could be rounded or squared and surround the sitter with the armrests.
  • Chesterfield Chair – the Chesterfield looks similar to the wingback but has more cushioning and buttons for beauty. These chairs are traditionally covered in leather but can now be substituted with fabric of your choice.
  • Tub Chair – this version has a rounded back that forms around your body when you sit. It doesn’t have a high back though but it is rather comfortable.
  • Dining Chair – like the name says, this is used at the dining table. There are many different shapes that can be considered dining chairs. They have to be matched with the table as they are a set.
  • Wingback Chairs – wingback or wing chairs have a high back that has “wings” on either side. This was supposed to be a comfort piece that would be used in front of a fireplace but has been adapted to be used anywhere in the home.
  • Chaise Lounge Chairs – this is also known as a long chair. The purpose for this furniture item is for lounging and relaxing. Many people have them either in their bedroom as a décor item or in the lounge to complement their lounge suites. Industrial designers made this into a conceptual piece that was for mainly for aesthetics but soon after it became a chair for comfort.
  • Egg Chair – this was a popular trend many years ago. It had a modern and funky shape that made every home owner want it. It curved in all sorts of directions and hugged the sitter comfortably.

Owning Leather Furniture

Comments Off on Owning Leather Furniture


When you own leather furniture, you have something in common with early man, whose furniture employed animal skins. Our ancestors used hides as a by-product of using the meat and other parts of the animal since the hide was available and it had kept the animal warm and comfortable. But, those who buy leather furniture today think of themselves as sophisticated man. Leather furniture is expensive, and it sends this message: “Yeah, I have money.” Because of the expense and because such furniture has a unique look, feel, and character, folks who buy it tend to keep it – forever.

If you buy it, and keep it, you will want to understand and know how to maintain it. Owning leather furniture and placing it in a room of your home means that all who visit your home will put their eyes on it. Wherever you put it, it becomes the centerpiece of the room. Its appearance will haunt the viewer’s opinion of you and how you keep your house. If someone who knows leather sees your furniture, they will discern the quality of what you have identified as the show piece in a room. The finest leather sends a fragrance to the nose, is soft to the touch, and if it is new, it does not sag or have cracks in it.

Tanning processes have improved to make modern leather furniture more resilient. But, if you own older, good quality leather furniture, the appearance of cracks in it is expected and acceptable, because they are like weathered creases and scars on the face of a person who has lived a long and interesting life. Hint: Don’t try to convince someone who knows leather that your new furniture with cracks is like a weathered interesting old person.

Visitors want to sit on your leather furniture. They may ask for permission. They might wait until you are out of the room, then do it in secret. They might do it because it is an available place to sit in the room when folks have taken the other seats. The wise leather furniture owner sizes up his or her visitor as soon as he or she enters the room. Does the visitor have anything sharp on their clothing that might cut the leather? Is the visitor’s clothing stained? Does the visitor have food or a drink in hand? If the answer to those questions is “No,” many owners will invite their visitor to sit so they can observe them. It is best to have club soda or some recommended cleaning solution handy to get at any staining material (like wine) as soon as possible, if needed.


5 Tips for Selecting the Right Furniture for a Room.

Comments Off on 5 Tips for Selecting the Right Furniture for a Room.


Decorating a room can be difficult, especially if you have to start with a completely empty room. You might not know where to begin. In this article, I will give you some valuable tips to help you select the right furniture to decorate a room. Since there are many factors that come into play for any given room, such as size, shape, or type (bedroom or living room etc), there are many different tips that can help you select the right furniture, but I will summarize it into the top five.

Since I mentioned size, let’s start with that one. The larger a room, the more furniture you will need to have in it, typically, or it will look empty. At the same time, the scale of the furniture can be larger too for a larger room. Like a large wrap around sectional for a large living room. On the flip side, the smaller the room, the less furniture you will want to have, lest it feel cluttered. And a person can go even further and try to find smaller scale tables and furniture, so each item is smaller and not taking up all of their limited space. Keep in mind though, you will need to have a sufficient amount of seating for the number of people living in the home. Like in a living room for example, you will need to have enough seating for everyone, in case you all like to watch movies together. Or for the kitchen, you will need a dining room table with enough chairs for everyone.

The second tip I have to offer is choose a style. There are a lot of styles of decor out there, such as Coastal, Rustic Cabin, French, Contemporary, Minimalist, and Industrial, just to name a few. So, you’ll need to decide on the look that you are going for. For example, you won’t want to mix soft and sophisticated French decor with it’s expensive fabrics and delicate art, with Industrial Decor, which uses a lot of pipes and hard accents made of metal. They just don’t go together. Opposites CAN attract, but typically not with design styles. Just stick with one.

The third tip is color. What kind of color scheme do you want in your room? Neutrals, bright colors, white? Whatever you decide, I recommend having the color be somewhat consistent throughout the entire home, lest each room feels disconnected and unrelated to the others. You don’t want to have too many colors either, as it can be a bit overwhelming, unless you’re running a daycare out of your home, then by all means!

The fourth tip for a well put together room is an important one- repetition. It ties in with the previous tip, color. In order to create any aesthetically-pleasing art form, it needs to have repetition. Repeating the same element in a room creates flow and movement and helps your eye to move around the room. For example, if you have circles in some of your room accents, such as a mirror, make sure to repeat that shape at least three times in that room. So, add a circular coffee table or end table, add some artwork that has a circular theme, or maybe a throw pillow with circles on it. A really easy way to create repetition in a room is to repeat a color.Like if you have a monochromatic (one color) color scheme such as grey or white, you can add pops of a certain color to create repetition and consistency. Whatever you decide to incorporate for repetition, it will help your eyes move about the room, creating flow.

Which brings us to the fifth design tip, flow. If there isn’t good flow through a room, it feels stagnant. And people can’t walk through it or around it easily. They might hit their shin on a table walking to the couch. Or trip over a lamp because it’s sticking out in the path. Ask yourself if there is a clear path to all of the seating? It’s important to make sure the room is organized, with clear paths for people to walk to the seating or through to other spaces in the home.

Tips for Choosing Dining Chairs Online


The days of being stuck with dining chairs that strictly match a table are long gone. Modern dining chairs can allow you to add some personality to your dining space with bold choices or create a sophisticated style with a complementary design. Here we’ll explore how to buy dining chairs online to perfectly suit your specific needs.

Pick the Right Dimensions

While it may seem like all modern or contemporary dining chairs are the same size, this is not the case. So, you need to ensure that you pick dining chairs with the right dimensions. Generally, dining chairs should be 43 centimetres or more wide to ensure comfort, particularly if you want to do a lot of entertaining. Just remember that if you go wider or opt for dining chairs online with arms, they may be harder to fit around your table.

The optimum seat height is between 40 and 45 centimetres, but it is better to ensure that it is approximately 30 centimetres lower than the top of the table. This will help to make dining comfortable rather than feeling like you’re sitting at the kiddy’s table.

Consider the Design and Shape

You also need to choose the correct shape of dining chairs to suit your table. Generally, a round seat will not pair well with a rectangular or square table. However, a square or rectangular seat pads offer greater flexibility, as they work with any shape of the table. Remember that when your chairs are not in use, you will want them to be tucked neatly under the table, so if you have a smaller table, you may wish to avoid a chair design with chunky arms or other protrusions that may create difficulties.

Consider Functionality

Many of us find ourselves needing additional seating in other areas of the home, which is where buying contemporary dining chairs can be beneficial. It can be a good idea to choose dining chairs that will work in other areas of your home, so they can be used in the corner of your living room, in a hallway, study or bedroom. If you do need to use a chair in another area of your home, you will not only want it to look good but also be easy to move around your home.

Consider the Upholstery

Finally, it is a good idea to consider the material of your dining chairs. If you have pets or children, easy to clean dining chairs can be beneficial. You won’t want to have to spend hours cleaning spilt spaghetti sauce from white velvet upholstery after your toddler has enjoyed feeding his or herself. Of course, slipcovers are a possibility, which can be easily removed for cleaning.

Whenever you are up for decorating the nursery, you should know that there are few ideas that never grow old. In this article, I have made a list of five super cute ideas that you can use in the decoration of your home nursery. Have a look:

  • Let’s Get Back to Pastels

There is nothing cuter than pastel colors so the first tip for today would be to set a theme of pastel colors for your home nursery. You can choose all mild tones of pink, green, blue, yellow and more. From the furniture to accessories, try to keep everything light in color. Keep in mind that the nursery should be soothing for the eyes of the baby so avoid any sharp colors.

  • Wooden Accessories are Always a Good Idea

When we talk about decorating the nursery, we can’t forget about using wooden accessories. Try to choose the crib with a solid wood frame that can also be turned into a child’s bed as your baby grows up. You should also invest in some good wooden rocking chair for yourself such as a glider chair. A glider style rocking chair will make the nursery look simple and cute. The glider will also provide comfort to the parents for the long feeding sessions.

  • Floral Designs are Super Cute

Yes, floral designs are super cute. Flowers are not meant for girls only; they can be used in the nursery for a boy as well. You can paint the walls with some nice floral print, or use the floral wall stickers as they will cost you less than paint. You can also use artificial flowers to decorate the nursery. They will make the nursery look perfect and the artificial flowers will stay the same even if the baby grabs them or plays with them.

  • Try to Personalize the Nursery

Making your baby’s room more personalized is always a great idea. You can use funny bedsheets and glider slipcovers with cute prints to give a room more personality. Also, you can go for some funky curtains or get personalized curtains based on what you’d like your nursery to look. Other than the bedsheets and curtains, you can customize accessories like lamps. You can cover the lamps with some cool textured pieces of fabric so that it looks customized.

  • Wall Art

Wall art is again a great idea. You can use different wall hangings or paintings that make the room look cute overall. If you don’t want to spend money on paintings or wall hangings, you can use large stickers too or fun pictures and paste them on the wall of the nursery.


Wooden Garage Interior: Things To Avoid

July 27, 2019

Comments Off on Wooden Garage Interior: Things To Avoid


Installing a wooden garage is an excellent addition to your home, but it can go wrong if the right measures do not get taken. First off, you must understand what you need from the garage such that you get one that fits your requirements. Failure to understand your needs will end up in you investing a lot of money in a garage only for you to spend more money fixing it or getting another one. The interior of your garage matters most as it is where your car will spend a lot of time when you are home and thus must meet given standards to protect your vehicle.

Your garage is not just a room where you store your car to protect it from thieves and weather elements. It is also a part of your home and thus must be a representation of your home in general. In short, its interior, as well as its exterior, must be aesthetically pleasing. To get the perfect wooden garage, here is a list of things you ought to avoid.

Lack of adequate research

Mistakes made when choosing a wooden garage all boil down to a lack of sufficient research. People start looking around for options on the internet or in local shops without thoroughly looking into factors to consider when getting a garage. As such, decisions they make do not reflect their needs, and they end up spending money to make adjustments to their investment, something they could have avoided had they conducted extensive research on their needs and the garages on offer.

There are very many styles and designs on the market. Though this is a good thing such that you do not have to settle for something that you do not like, it often gets confusing and can lead to bad decision making. As such, there are some things that you must take into consideration during your research stage. If you live alone, then this is something that you can undertake on your own. In a case where you will not be the only one using the space, then sit with your family and discuss your needs.

Factors to consider during research

The vehicles

The number and kind of cars you wish to store in the garage should be the first thing that you take into consideration. The last thing that you aspire to do is to get a garage only to realize that the cars cannot fit, thus calling for the need of another room.

Space requirements

Garages are part of the house, and as such, they do more than just housing vehicles. Children use these spaces for other activities such as playing music and practicing their crafts, and you must consider this when settling on a design. The design you choose should also have adequate space to store items used in the maintenance of vehicles.

You must also consider if you want to use the garage for storing things that are no longer in use. Some people also use these spaces to entertain guests, and if you wish to follow this route, then you will need a lot of space. Think of all the things you would like to do in the garage and ensure that the size of the garage can accommodate such activities.

The budget

The amount of money you are willing to spend must come into play. Sometimes people get carried away in the search for a garage that they forget to make considerations on the amount of money they should use. Not having a budget exposes you to overspending and can have detrimental effects on your financial health.

Inadequate lighting

A wooden garage is more aesthetically pleasing when it has adequate lighting. As such, when you fit one lamp in your garage, you leave some places dimly lit, and this can lead to accidents. Someone may be looking for an item in the garage, and they might trip in the dark and land on tools.

Also, look into the kinds of lights that you use as they affect the temperature of the room. Many manufacturers recommend that you use fluorescent lighting in your garage. They use little energy, and they keep the temperatures down.

Little or no ventilation

Many people may not realize how significant ventilation is in a garage. Ensure that your garage has adequate windows which you can open when it gets hot inside. The windows will also add to the amount of light that the interior has, thus making it safe. You can also consider getting an exhaust fan which helps get rid of scents emitted by the vehicle. It is essential that air is in circulation at all times.

Bad electrical fittings

Electricity is very dangerous and must get handled with caution especially in a garage. If you do not pay attention to the wiring and there are open wires or extension cords on the roof, then you are exposing yourself to electrocution. If petrol and electricity get into contact, the results are devastating so keep this in mind when making your installations. The best way to conduct your fittings is by having the wires fitted in the walls as this reduces their exposure.

Inadequate insulation

Your vehicle will be in the garage for extended periods, and thus the environment must be conducive enough to keep it fresh. Also, remember that you will be working in the garage at times and you will require an atmosphere where you can stay for a long time without running hot. People may not give much thought to insulation until the summer comes and they begin regretting their decisions. Save yourself the discomfort and get the insulation done at an early stage.

Not giving thought to the flooring

Before installing a floor, it is essential that you consider the use of the garage to ensure that the floor type you choose is suitable. A coated garage floor is a great idea. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing but they are also easy to clean as this aids in maintaining the hygiene of the garage. Sealing the floor also adds on to the life of the garage and is a great way to enhance durability.

Not taking safety precautions

A garage requires that you have firefighting equipment at hand in case of any incidents. Fires that start at the garage can quickly spread to the house, having devastating effects. Being ready will protect you and your loved ones.

It is easy to get carried away by all the options in the market today. However, failure to consider these requirements will cost you dearly over time. You can work with a checklist to ensure that you leave no stone unturned.
