Why Choose A Scarf Valance?

There are so many styles of window treatments available these days that it can get quite difficult to decide what to hang at your windows and if you are looking for window valances, you are probably wondering which style of valance to choose. Here are some reasons why a scarf valance may be right for you.

1. Style of Decor

Different types of valances go with different types of room. More informal rooms such as kitchens or breakfast nook, bathrooms and kids’ room work well with a less formal style of valance, while dining rooms and living rooms tend to favor a more traditional style such as an ascot valance and crisply tailored swag and tail designs. While a scarf valance is an informal style, it depends on the type of fabric, which rooms it would be suitable for. A sheer scarf valance, for example, is slightly romantic in nature and therefore is best of all in a bedroom with very soft romantic style decor, whereas one in softly draped gingham would be great in a country style kitchen.

2. Cost

As scarf valances are easy to manufacturer, being just a simple length of fabric, they are generally lower in cost than more formal valances and are therefore more likely to be affordable if you have a limited budget.

3. Easy to Hang

Scarf valances are merely draped over a drapery rod or through valance rings or holders. You might spend a little time arranging the folds as you want them but there is not really anything complex to hanging them. They are also very forgiving when it comes to measuring up as you can usually get a great effect with various lengths of fabric, depending on how many times you loop it over the pole and so on. If you don’t like the creative element of arranging things like that however, you will not like hanging a scarf valance as there is no right and wrong way to do it, only your way.

The Style for Blind Slats – Vertical Blinds

The new designs in blinds which are good patio door window treatments offer a few variations on the vertical blind slats they come with. You can still purchase the traditional style of blind which are like plantation shutters, which generally comes with a 1 and a half inch slat which is best for your bathroom blinds. You will also see some styles that have the wider 2 inch style and even some with 2 and a half. Vertical blinds are generally used for doorways or very long window areas. These are commonly hung on back patio doors to help reduce the amount of glare that could enter the home which works best with the glass of your window or door with frosted window film. Like black out blinds, it provides privacy and control of light that enters the room.

Why opt for vertical blinds?

The slats of the blind can be made from a wide assortment of material. You might find you like the natural wood styles, which can include bamboo. This is a nice style to use for a porch area that has full length windows such as a four season’s porch. There are several types that have a fabric material on them. The fabric is glued onto the hard surface of the blind to create a designer look to the piece. This particular type can come in an assortment of patterns, textures and colors for you to pick from.  The blinds can also come as plain plastic with no added material on them. You might want to grab 2 faux wood blinds of different designs.

The concept of the vertical style is to have the slats slightly overlap each other when they are closed. This creates more of a complete light filtration so you are able to shut out the sunlight completely. The amount of light filtration can also be any other point in between being fully open or fully closed. These blinds are attached to a top piece, which will also include a roller or pulley mechanism so you may draw the wooden blinds back if you need to. This is a desirable feature when they are used for a door area because you can easily go in and out when they are pulled back from the opening.

Keep Your Garage Floor Looking Fresh

If you have a garage or portable buildings then you know the frustration that can come with trying to keep it clean. Not to mention the headaches that come with trying to keep the floor tidy and looking nice. Well using garage floor paint and garage floor sealant will do just that. You can now buy garage floor paint kits and do it yourself with just a little prep work. The kits come complete with everything you need for a DIY job, including a DVD.

Taking care of your garage floor.

Garage floor paint in the epoxy form is one of the best to apply lasting upward of 20 years! Floors will need to be cleaned before starting your job, epoxy floor paint can go over existing paints so long as you clean and sand the existing layer so the new paint will adhere to it, use a degreaser over oil stains. Preparation is the main key to a good job so don’t skimp on the prep work. Making your garage vacant and putting your car outside, under your carport canopy or metal carports will make your work faster.

Once thorough cleaning is complete it’s time to mix your epoxy and cover your floor. Follow your manufacturers instruction well, most will supply brushes, squeegees and whatever else you need in the kit. The floor covering on its own is slippery when wet or when oil is on it, to combat that there are small flake chips that you can throw on top of the epoxy that will make it more slip resistant. These are available in many colors, using 2 or 3 colors can produce a marble finish effect.

This is a project that is easy, but does require some muscle power for cleaning and preparation work. It’s not an expensive project; costs will vary with the size of your garage. You will save the most by doing it yourself as opposed to paying a contractor. The reward is a new garage floor that is almost maintenance free that will last for years and look new each and every time you open the door.

How To Find A Teal Rug For Less

If you are looking for a rug of a particular color, it can be quite difficult to track down a choice of rugs, never mind a rug at low cost, if you confine yourself to shopping at local stores. That is because area rugs are quite bulky to stock and display and so stores are generally unable to offer a huge selection. Although you will find some rugs at reduced prices during sale times, it is unlikely that you will find many teal rugs at very low prices in this way. These can be found in home improvement stores along with other inexpensive area rugs like Karastan oriental rugs.

If you shop on the Internet however you will see that you have much more choice. As you can compare prices very easily, you will be able to quickly find a floor rug for sale in any color in your price range. In fact, there are sites which specialize in selling rugs at a discount and these can be a useful starting point for your search. Alternatively, use the larger e-commerce sites which sell a whole range of household goods including flooring and rugs.
