Wood Decor Adds Uniqueness to a Home

   |   By  |  0 Comments

A home featuring traditional wood crafts, folk art and hand-carved furniture exemplifies a unique style of beauty. Whether you proudly display family heirlooms or collectibles gathered throughout the years, the addition of wood as a classic backdrop throughout your home will set the stage for these historic treasures and enhance your home’s sense of warmth and style.

Here are some tips for adding wood decor to your home.

Start With the Entrance

An impressively detailed, hand-carved wood door will set the tone before anyone even takes a step into your home. A stately carved wood door informs those entering the home of your own personal style.

An elaborate wood entry system, like those available in the Jeld-Wen IWP Collection, features extraordinary details that emphasize the wood’s character. These doors are created by artisans who carefully craft each masterpiece to match and highlight a home’s architectural details.

Include Interior Decorative Wood Pieces

From windows, doors and furniture to clocks and artwork, decorative pieces are available in the wood species and style of your choice. Many of these pieces are still being created by hand. Artisans utilize their skills to replicate the exquisite works of old-world craftsmen, as well as create new, original designs. Craftsmen construct each piece individually, often choosing and planing the lumber themselves to bring out the true beauty of the wood.

Create Your Own Style

Continue your wood theme throughout your home when selecting moulding, cabinetry and any additional woodwork. Using the same species all through your home creates a truly harmonious, classic feel. Or, use a blend of species by coordinating two or three different types of wood to create a varied, somewhat eclectic look.

From maple, pine and oak to mahogany and rosewood, these woods complement each other and promise an exotic design that will add interest and character to each room.

Mix & Match Old With New

When decorating, match hand-carved wood items with factory-built accents, which are stylish yet economical. Handcrafted tables, cedar chests and armoires blend seamlessly with manufacturer-made wood picture frames, clocks and candlesticks. Mixing in your antique treasures will add that final touch, giving your home the individuality you desire and a proud display of your prized possessions.

8 Tips for Decorating Your Apartment!

   |   By  |  0 Comments

Here are some easy tips to decorate your home. Taking a few moments to think about your home will help you fully enjoy it.

Think about your home, and answer these questions:

1. What do you want it to be?

If you want your home to be a tranquil oasis in a busy world, are your colors soothing or do they shout? If you want a fun place for friends to gather, do you have plenty of seating?

2. What are your main hobbies and activities?

What do you need for these activities? For instance, if you have a collection that you work on often, get storage containers for it that can be easily opened or put away. If its a lot of trouble to get at your collection, you either wont spend the time on it, or else might be tempted to leave it out and risk losing or breaking certain pieces.

3. Who will be using the space?

How many people will be living there? What ages? Its important for every person to have a space that’s their own. Whether its a special chair, couch, desk or a section of a room, everyone needs their space. If you’re planning to do video aerobics, you’ll need room to move around in front of the TV!

4. What about your things?

Its easy to become very messy if things don’t have a place. A small filing cabinet is a must for many people its a great place to store all the papers that you don’t know what to do with!

5. How much do you really need?

Too much furniture makes a room seem crowded. The bare essentials are a couch and chair, a table and chairs for eating, a bed and place for your clothes. After that, think hard about what you need or don’t need. Will you really use that computer desk or would you rather sit on the couch with a laptop?

6. Think about the traffic flow

You want to be able to walk anywhere in the room without bumping into furniture. Try drawing furniture placement on paper as a first step.

7. Pick a focal point

Your Greystone Properties home has unique features. What do you want to see when your first walk in the room? If you have nice windows with great lighting, are you emphasizing it? Everyone feels brighter in sunshine.

8. Think about order and organization

Do you bring home work every day, or mail, or sports equipment? Where will you put it? A large bowl or box near the front door is a great place to drop mail until you go through it later.

9. Take advantage of free expert advice

Every store and every product line employs professional designers to put furniture and accessories together. If you’re unsure of your decorating skills, pick a design you like. Study how they did it either by looking through a catalog or going to a store. Its all there assembled and displayed for you. If you like the look, simply do what they’ve done!

White and Neutral Tone Colors Blend Well With Other Decorating

   |   By  |  0 Comments

White and neutral tone colors blend well with other decorating schemes.

Neutral tones are especially practical in the world of decoration because their neutrally means they can easily be teamed up with other colors. Warm colors make a room seem smaller and more homey, a place where we can retreat to unwind.

There are many techniques for increasing the expressiveness of the walls and for making your home a place where you feel at ease. Many neutral tones are associated with natural materials, stone, earth, wood, straw, sand or with artificial materials such as metal, glass, and concrete.

Here are ten household helpful hints for choosing colors and wall covering fabrics to decorate your home:

  1. White and neutral tones are an ideal backdrop to make a work of art or tapestry stand out.
  2. Neutral tones should be applied when a space is overloaded architecturally, or when we want something to fade into the background.
  3. Neutral tones age well so they can be used where you do not redecorate, or touch up, very often; or if our intention is to specifically create an aged effect.
  4. Variations on neutral tones are ideal for small rooms.
  5. White and neutral tones are a great way of combining different decorative styles as they act as a neutral transition zone between one style and the other.
  6. Gray metal or gray concrete, two neutral tones, are especially apt for creating modern ambience with a cutting edge feel.
  7. Textured neutral tones, like limestone or temperate paint, are perfect for creating rustic effects.
  8. Neutral tones fabrics, carpets, curtains, or tapestries are a great help when decorating because they go well with al the colors.
  9. If you want a room steeped in neutral tones to be livelier, you can introduce a few dramatic color touches dark colors, even black, are a good solution.
  10. A neutral tone is perfect for painting a wall or doors that you want to be inconspicuous.

Window Fashions Are Going Hybrid

   |   By  |  0 Comments

A growing number of products are being created to respond to the demands of environmentally-conscious consumers, as well as those who like styles that blend the old and the new.

For example, hybrid-a term often used to describe a type of car designed to appeal to consumers concerned about energy savings-is now being used to describe a new type of interior window shutter.

The leader in window fashions-Hunter Douglas-has introduced what’s said to be the first-ever hybrid shutter to appeal to trend-conscious consumers of all ages.

Combining the style of finely painted wood with the strength and straightness of advanced materials, the shutters evoke quality at an economical price.

Based on age-old craftsmanship techniques and infused with forward-thinking design, NewStyle™ hybrid shutters boast Truemill™ dovetail construction. Dovetail construction has long been considered by many to be the best method on the market for joining wood.

The shutters also have a micro-smooth sophisticated satin finish called Finetech™ that simulates the look of a finely painted wood shutter. They are available in various louver sizes-21/2 inches, 31/2 inches and 41/2 inches-to cover small traditional windows as well as large modern ones.

The award-winning, exclusive TruView™ rear tilt operating system, originally created for Heritance hardwood shutters also from Hunter Douglas, is offered on the NewStyle collection as well. With TruView, the operating system is barely visible from the front and blends in perfectly on the back side of the shutter for a sleek, contemporary design and more expansive views.

NewStyle shutters come in a choice of eight frame styles and more than 250 configuration options, including bay and corner windows, French doors and perfect and imperfect specialty shapes.

What’s more, the shutters are available in six colors that follow the latest trends, from Pure White, to the golden yellow Buttercup, to Gentle Taupe. In addition, there is a choice of hinge finishes.

Ideal for those consumers who need a custom product quickly at an economical price, Express NewStyle™ hybrid shutters come in three of the NewStyle colors and three frame types and can accommodate openings as large as 8-feet wide and 8-feet high.

“Inspired design, choices to suit any taste, a price point with wide appeal-that’s NewStyle hybrid shutters in a nutshell,” said Jim Klawiter, Business Unit Manager of the Hunter Douglas Custom Shutter Division.

Wood Counter Tops, a Consistent Choice for Modern Kitchens

   |   By  |  0 Comments

The solid wood, as a material of choice for counter tops, exhibits incontestable advantages such as:

Aesthetics

Imparting a warm, relaxing feeling, the wooden top is the natural complement of any solid wood or veneered cabinetry. The wooden tops will wonderfully go together with hardwood floorings, moldings, cornices and mantels, conferring a genuine sense of balance to your kitchen space.

Functionality

A hardwood top is very easy to cut to templates and even easier to install. Unlike the solid surface or laminate, wood tops have a minimum of chemical components, which make them extremely safe in contact with foods. Unlike the other countertop materials, any occurring scratch can be easily removed by sanding the area; the wood tops actually constitute the only known surface that can be renewed without employing special tools or requiring special skills.

Hardwood surfaces can be used as kitchen island tops, inserted sink covers, sections of countertop, or as butcher block hidden under the countertop that can be pulled as drawer or cart. Your imagination will surely find plenty of other interesting, visually attractive applications.

Durability

If properly sealed and installed, a wooden top can literally last a lifetime. Unlike marble, granite or tile, the wooden tops have a great shock absorbing capacity that further assures considerable life span.

Hygiene

For a quite few decades, the plastic and laminate surfaces, due to their non-porous structure were considered much safer than wood for applications such as chopping meat or slicing vegetables. The wood, because of its porosity was thought an ideal surface for harmful bacteria like Salmonella, Staphylococus or Escherichia coli to thrive.

However, a study undertaken in 1993 by the microbiologists of Wisconsin Food Research Institute and another one carried out in 1998 at university of Florida discovered the strong antibacterial properties that wood surfaces exhibit, properties that no other cutting surface appears to possess.

According to these studies and to others that followed them, on wood surfaces, bacterial populations disappear quite fast, without external intervention, while on plastic surfaces they persist and actually multiply. Although these properties vary among wood species, the wooden cutting surfaces are increasingly accepted as the first choice of health-conscious individuals.

Price

Hardwood is usually priced higher than laminate but are far less expensive than stone, granite, solid surface, tile or steel.

The butcher block counter tops supplied by Lafor Wood Products come in beech wood, cherry, walnut, oak, whitebeam (hickory look), acacia (black locust) or hard maple with a large variety of dimensions and grades. Mineral oil is supplied for free along to the purchase and helps to finish and preserve the butcher blocks. Availability is immediate and they offer samples of butcher blocks free of charge.
