Four Ways To Maximise Your Storage

If you’re wondering what you could do to maximise your storage, we have just the guide for you

Fitted or modular wardrobes will make the most of your space, especially if you have sloping ceilings and awkward corners.

You should look for bespoke options or alternatively, try a customisable system.
Seek out second-hand storage that you can upcycle.

If you’re on the hunt for budget-priced furniture, you should visit your local car boot sales and charity shops, or try websites such as eBay.
Make sure you know the dimensions of the space you want to fill and keep a tape measure handy to check potential buys.
Maximise every inch of space.

Fit alcoves with open display shelves, try adding doors to create cupboards, or simply slot in a drawer unit, bookcase or trunk.

Think outside the box – old leather suitcases, vintage trunks and wooden chests will give your room a stylish urban edge.

They can also double as coffee or bedside tables and will make fantastic places to
stash anything from board games and magazines to clothes or crockery.

Try hooks and peg racks for kitchen utensils.

Comparison of straight and corner sofas: which ones are better?
​Manufacturers usually offer sofas with straight and angled configurations. Many people may find their design quite understandable: straight models are stretched out in a straight line, and the second ones are placed in the corner of the room. But both varieties have many types, and it is difficult to choose the most suitable one. When thinking about whether to buy a straight or corner sofa, you need to consider its features, advantages and disadvantages. Direct models A straight sofa is stretched out in a line. Their main factor is the depth of the seat, which depends on whether there is a cot forming a sleeping place. In accordance with this, they can be equipped with a built-in folding bed (sofa bed) or without it. Models with clamshells often perform the function of a bed. When choosing such a product, you need to first determine its location, because when unfolded, it takes up quite a lot of space. This type of sofa is easy to turn into a comfortable bed, so there is no need to buy a regular bed. If it is to be used as a permanent sleeping place, it must have reliable sliding mechanisms. Furniture without a built-in clamshell is a compact solution compared to folding sofas. They are raised off the floor on their legs. The back of such a sofa is removed from its edge by almost 60 cm, which is on average equal to the length of the hip. These sofas are appropriate in the home living room and in offices. Also, straight models can be divided into two types, depending on where the sleeping area is located relative to the backrest: with a longitudinal berth; the sleeping place is perpendicular. Usually, the second option is characterized by a shorter length than the first. Sofas with a longitudinal sleeping area are made without cross seams. Interesting: How to Clean Velvet Sofa Methods? Corner services Sofas with a corner configuration in size can be compact, designed for three people, and for spacious rooms. The first type of corner sofas has a triple seat in the shape of the letter "G", and its protrusion is formed by an elongated couch. If such a small corner version is used for sleeping, then it must be equipped with a "dolphin" mechanism (all the pillows on the seat are involved in the transformation of the product into a sleeping place). Corner sofas for large spaces are full-fledged seating complexes made from parts of a modular system. You can find models for seats 3+3, 3+4 and more. Some sofas have such significant dimensions that their seats are curved twice, for example, in the shape of the letters P and S. They can have transformation functions and a sleeping place. These products are perfect for compact apartments, studio apartments, where you need to properly use the space. The corner of sofas of this type is formed using the "canape" design (standard or reduced version), as well as by means of a pedestal and attaching a chair module. Corner types can have identical sides or different lengths. U-shaped models are also available. Due to their practicality, modular corner sofas are the most popular. They are divided into two types: assembled from independent parts; with a strong connection of elements. Angular models that are rigidly connected will not be able to change frequently. If necessary, such a piece of furniture is disassembled and assembled in a different way, changing the location of the short and long parts. Sofas from independent sections allow you to change their design, type of placement and functional features more than once a day because their blocks are not connected to each other. But when choosing such a solution, you need to remember about its features: A sofa made from unrelated parts will cost more since it requires a lot of upholstery material, which determines the cost of the product.; Options with independent elements are usually chosen for large rooms, but they are not suitable for miniature rooms. In a room with a small area, it will be inconvenient to move modules, which will take up useful meters. Choosing a corner sofa Furniture design is very important, but you need to keep in mind its practical features. The fewer elements it contains in its frame, the better and more reliable it is in operation. It is desirable that the frame is made of beech, walnut or ash. Softwood products are more affordable, but not as durable and durable. The upholstery can be chosen according to the owner's taste. But wear-resistant materials will be preferred, for example, flock, natural or artificial leather, chenille, jacquard. The role of the filler together with the springs is usually played by a layer of felt, foam rubber or batting. In the case of foam rubber, the density should be at least 35 units. What's better for the kitchen? Often there are sofas in the kitchens. When choosing this piece of furniture, you need to take into account the size of the room, the style of the kitchen and personal preferences. A kitchen sofa will make the room cosier, and if it is equipped with a sleeping place, the kitchen will gain more functionality. Sliding kitchen sofas can have an angular or straight design. Straight allows you to place a maximum of three people on the sofa, and after unfolding, it moves forward. This type of furniture requires a spacious kitchen. Corner sofas are appropriate in small kitchens. They are characterized by a larger number of seats and the ability to unfold. At the same time, it increases in width, creating a comfortable sleeping place. Corner kitchen models can be made of different materials, such as leather, velour, suede, or jacquard. If it is used in the kitchen as a sleeping place, then synthetic materials are preferred: velour, flock, chenille. When choosing between a corner sofa and a straight sofa, you should take into account the layout of the room, its area and future purpose. Straight and angular options with the possibility of transformation will be the best solution for small rooms, a living room combined with a bedroom or dining room.

Difference between Shop Drawings and As Built Drawings
Execution of project cannot start unless the blueprints of the structure or building are in place. The designing stage of any construction project holds immense importance as it lays the foundation for effective project execution. Throughout the construction process there are various construction drawings prepared, each of them serves different purpose and possess their own unique features. These design drawings provide a glimpse of the actual state of construction process during various stages of project lifecycle. Shop Drawings and As Built Drawings are crucial in construction process and are created to accomplish different goals. In this article, we will understand both of these drawings and how are they different from each other. Shop Drawings Shop Drawings, also known as fabrication drawings are detailed representation of design intent. These drawings are generally utilized by fabricators, contractors, manufacturers, suppliers etc. in regards to manufacturing, assembling, and installation of pre-fabricated components of a building or structure. A few examples of the same are; Elevators, windows, trusses, MEP components such as HVAC ducts, plumbing pipes etc. The style of these drawings is very different from architect’s drawing as these are extremely detailed, having instructions/notations for installation, dimensions and materials needed. Shop Drawings usually include the following information: · Dimensions · Applicable fabrication standards · Details needed for erection and installation · Plans, elevations, views, sections, and information required for installation of pre-fabricated elements Shop Drawings are essential because of the following reasons: · Structural shop drawings provide essential information to fabricator in great detail to make sure that all the components used in fabrication are sound structurally. It also ensures that there is no compromise made with safety & standards are adhered to. · MEP Shop Drawing Services can be used to create MEP drawings which provide information regarding HVAC, electrical, plumbing and fire-protection components of a building. This is used not just for fabrication, installation and assembly but can also aid facility managers for carrying out quick repairs by pinpointing the location of a faulty component. · It brings down fabrication rework considerably by providing accurate and detailed information pertaining to the kind of materials to be used, the dimensions etc. about fabricated components and early detection of clashes. · Helps in clear communication between architect, designer, client and fabricator. · Essential in expediting the timeline of construction by ensuring seamless flow of fabrication process. As Built Drawings: As built drawings also known as Record Drawings or Red Line Drawings are revised versions/sets of drawings created after the completion of construction project. These drawings are prepared by contractors & subcontractors to compare the final completed version of the structure or the building with that of what was originally planned. Thus, these drawings provide a final blueprint of finished structure and the area surrounding it. During any construction project there are various times when deviations are to be made from what was planned initially. As Built Services can also be used to keep a track of the changes made throughout the project lifecycle and records them to reflect the actual construction with exact dimensions, location and geometry of the built structure or building. As built drawings generally include the following information: · Modifications in designs · Alterations done in shop drawings · Geometry, dimensions, area etc. · Deviations from initial designs Importance of As Built Drawings · It reflects the actual constructed state of the building and not just the conceived idea. · Time and cost saving, as no resources are wasted in the maintenance and operation processes to locate, recognize, installation and maintenance, as all the information is reflected in documented history of building. · It provides room for safety as the detailed plans show the areas where safety parameters may be needed, and how can they be installed. · They are helpful during renovation or refurbishment of the building as it contains the history of building and all the primary and essential information which can expedite the process. Conclusion: During any construction process, accuracy is essential in order to prevent errors, and wastage of resources, such as time, money and manpower. Even though Shop Drawings and As Built Drawings are different from one another, both of them require the same level of precision in order to ensure a smooth on-site construction process.

Home Gutter Maintenance
Cleaning gutters can be a daunting and dreaded task, but as we'll see in this article, it's a must! So read on to know more: How do I know if gutters need cleaning? Maybe the easiest way to see if your gutters need cleaning, without going up onto the roof, of course, is by looking up on a rainy day! If you see that the rain is flowing from anywhere except the drainpipe. If so, gutter cleaning is needed. But let's look at the other telltale signs: 1. Gutter sagging: You need to clean your gutters, so they don't clog with leaves and other dirt. Once they are blocked, the water can no longer flow away. So for every litre of water stuck in the gutter, 1 kilo is added. On long gutters, that, plus other debris, can sum up to a lot of weight! That extra weight causes extra stress, which can eventually break the guttering and cause it to sag. 2. Stained walls: After a rainy day, if you see streaks of dirt or unusual stains under your gutters, then chances are that the water is running over, bringing dirt along with it, as it has nowhere else to go. 3. Larger than usual puddles: The whole point of gutters is to take the water away from your house. If you see big puddles around your home, it could be a sign that the gutters are no longer taking that water away! 4. Birds and other animals: What do birds use to make their nests? Twigs? Leaves? Exactly, and a dirty gutter is full of both of them! So if you see a lot of birds coming and going from your gutters, especially around nesting season, you can be assured that your gutters need cleaning! What about other animals? They might not make the same nests, but many rodents will love to bunk down in a leaf bed! And what do rodents attract? Snakes, another good reason to clean your gutters! 5. Roof garden: If you see that flowers and other plants are sprouting from your roof guttering, the chances are that it's time for a clean! Why? Rotten leaves and other natural debris like dust make good makeshift compost. Compost and water = the perfect environment for your new roof garden! How often should gutters be cleaned? This is a more difficult question to answer. What if I asked you how long is a piece of string? (Twice as long as half its length, but that's for a more philosophical article!) Generally speaking, gutters need to be cleaned twice a year, but certain factors, like if you have overhanging trees, will mean you need to clean your gutters a lot more often! What happens if you don't clean your gutters? It might seem like a trivial matter, but if left uncleaned, it can cause significant problems! 1. It can cause foundation damage. In addition, heavy rains falling on the same stop will soften the soil and even erode the soil surrounding your foundations. This will cause cracks to appear. In the colder areas where it freezes, those cracks can fill with water, which will cause much more problems! 2. Trapped water + wooden building are a recipe for disaster! The dampness can cause the wood to root, weakening the structure. It can also allow rodents and other vermin to enter your house. 3. Creepy crawlies. The same rotten, humid debris that can make you a not so lovely roof garden can also attract all kinds of insects. Of course, if the weather changes for the worse, they'll look for a dry place to hide out, which will probably be inside your house! But that's the least of your insect worries! Insects like termites and carpenter ants are also are attracted to the rotten leaves, and once they've finished the starter, they will probably move on to the main course, your lovely wooden walls, windows, etc. 4. Roof and basement leaks. The excess water has to go somewhere, and that might be your roof space or even your basement! But, of course, this can cause more problems: rotten roof timbers, black mould, water damage, flooding, short circuits and so forth. How to clean your gutters? First of all, you should know that gutter cleaning can be a dangerous task! For example, did you know that 4.5 Australians die every year in ladder-related accidents? And many more are seriously injured! So make sure your ladder is safely placed. If you want to read more about height safety systems, take a look at my other article: Beginners guide to height safety systems or, better yet, talk to a professional about ladder brackets. Now I've warned you about being safe, let's get back to the subject at hand, gutter cleaning: 1. Wear the right clothes! Gutter cleaning is a dirty job! So it's best to wear a long-sleeved shirt, work trousers, and of course, gloves! You don't know what you're going to find up there. 2. You must also make sure that the ladder won't be leaning on the gutter, which could cause it to crack or push it out of place. And as we said before, make sure your ladder is safe and won't slip while you're working. 3. Slowly but surely, remove all debris from the gutter. Be careful not to use anything that might damage the gutter as you're cleaning it. You can buy specialised tools, but you can use an old rubber spatula from the kitchen. • TIP: You might want to place something on the floor below where you will be working, making cleaning up more straightforward once you've clean the gutters. 4. Once all the solid and semi-solid material has been removed, rinse the gutters with water, preferably using a hosepipe. Doing this will also help you find any leaks. 5. Does anything need repairing? Sagging or loose gutters? Leaks? Maybe water damage in the roof itself? 6. Once everything is in tiptop working order, you'll need to clean all the mess you will have made on the floor below. Is it better to call a professional? Now that you've read the dangers and steps needed to clean your gutters, you probably know the answer to this question. There are multiple factors you need to think about before making a decision. First, do you feel up to the job? Second, do you have the right tools? A long enough ladder? Before you decide, why not ask for a free quote? Once you hear the price, you might decide that the DIY path is not worth the trouble!
