hen you think about a sofa bed, you most likely conjure up an image of an average looking fold out couch that doesn’t offer much in the comfort department. Yet, when the time comes for friends and family to stay over, there is nothing better than having that convenient sleeper in the house—even if it’s tucked away in your home office. Now, you can say goodbye to that lackluster image of a traditional sofa bed forever, and meet the ultimate innovation that is literally redefining every notion you ever had about a traditional sleeper. American Leather’s Comfort Sleeper™ takes things to an entirely new level of luxury. When your guests come over, you won’t just be offering them a space to sleep— you will be providing them with first-rate bed accommodations, in an instant. With The Comfort Sleeper, American Leather has managed to capture the consumers’ imagination, not only in quality, but also size and design. Quality. Made in the U.S.A., each Comfort Sleeper is crafted from the highest quality materials and fully customizable. Available with three different mattress options, you can choose from a worldrenowned Tempur-Pedic®, a luxuriously soft gel mattress, or a slightly firmer Premier mattress. The Comfort Sleeper is also protected by a cloth under-shield. When guests arrive, your Comfort Sleeper mattress will fold out without any dust bunnies clinging to the mechanism. There are no bars, no springs, and no sagging—they will never experience a cleaner sleep. Size. More sleep space requires less floor space. All Comfort Sleeper mattresses offer a full 80-inches of sleeping surface, yet they take up less total floor area than conventional sleepers (whose mattresses tend to only be 70–75-inches in length). This is because the patented Comfort Sleeper system extends from within the back of the sofa. Also, staying true to size, when you purchase a queen Comfort Sleeper, you actually receive a 60 x 80 queen size. Many sleepers include a mattress that measures 54 x 72, and claim it’s queen-sized.

TRANSFORM YOUR KITCHEN

W

AND OPEN YOUR LIVING SPACE

hile the home you fell in love with years ago may have suited you perfectly at the time, a creative kitchen renovation will address the changes in your lifestyle and expand your living space. In Orange County, most of the houses were built between the years of 1960 and 2000. During that time, houses were built with the kitchen hidden at the back of the house and small individual dining, family and formal living rooms. With todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kitchen being the central hub of the home, opening up the kitchen to the rest of the house facilitates interaction between all rooms. There is a wide array of innovative options available. Removing a wall, vaulting a ceiling, opening view lines

and a creative cabinet layout can all contribute to the open concept. Updating your outdated kitchen with professional grade appliances will create a gourmet kitchen. This will increase the resale value of a home, but rather than looking at the upgrades in terms of selling, look at them as an investment in your quality of life. With extensive remodeling experience, a professional contractor can assist in turning your beginning ideas into detailed designs, providing layout ideas and additional resources that make the difference between a finished project with no detail and one that will grab the attention of every visitor as they walk through your home.

PROTECT YOUR STONE, TILE & CONCRETE INVESTMENT

N

by Sealing, Cleaning & Restoring

atural stone and concrete are excellent choices for durability. Although they can withstand the test of time, they are subject to wear and tear, dirt build- up, moisture and are not impervious to spills and heavy foot traffic. For newly constructed and remodeled home, sealing natural stone surfaces maintains optimum stain resistance and protects against everyday dirt and spills. After a period of time you will begin to see discoloration, chipping, etching and ultimately the stone and concrete will look dull, bringing down the overall ambience of indoor and exterior living spaces. Maintenance is essential to protect your investment and maintain the value and safety of your home. The cleaning and sealing performed during regular maintenance will enhance the beauty of the natural colors and textures, preserving your homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appearance for years to come. Dirt, mold, calcium deposits, salt damage and even algae can make their home in any permeable surface. These contaminants mar the beauty of your surfaces and can cause potential health concerns. In addition, if left unchecked, failing sealant may cause cracks creating trip hazards. The maintenance of each type of natural stone, along with the type of finish and location in your home, necessitates the need for a

knowledgeable, experienced professional who understands the different requirements for cleaning and sealing. Faux rocks, concrete and pavers used in outdoor landscape design around pools, waterfalls and ponds tend to get calcium build-up, creating a dull and dirty appearance. With a professional power wash, colors can be revived and then re-sealed to prolong the fresh look. By applying varying degrees of color dye, indoor as well as outdoor stone and concrete, outdoor hardscape and faux rocks can be restored to the original color. You can also choose from a myriad of colors and add designs from a variety of stencils or saw cut styles to suit your own design preferences, giving an entirely new character to your home. The professionals at The Floor Maintenance Company have over 20 years of experience providing innovative restoration solutions to breathe new life into both your indoor and outdoor concrete and stone.

Prevent a Costly Catastrophe by Repiping Your Home

W

hile many of the homes in Southern California have outdated piping, most homeowners do not give this situation much thought until a major problem happens. It is not an accident that more and more homeowners are experiencing costly slab and pinhole leaks in their home, or may be noticing the signs of outdated pipes such as decreased water pressure or bad tasting water. When it comes to slab leaks, there are certain signs that should never be ignored. If your water bill has increased, the water pressure is low, or there are hot spots on the floor, there is a high chance that you may have a slab leak. Other indications are the sound of running water when all the water is turned off, new cracks in the walls or flooring and excessive moisture under carpets. While the thought of having an expensive plumbing issue might deter you from wanting to call a plumber, avoiding this situation can cause further damage, leading to additional costs. It is important to have regular pipe inspections before it is too late, but if the signs of bad piping or slab leaks are

40

ORANGE COUNTY LIVING â&#x20AC;˘ APRIL/MAY 2018

already present, consulting a professional company that can detect the leak without damaging your home or leaving a mess and smell is key. Using ultrasonic meters, infrared thermometers, digital acoustic technology and thermal imaging, professionals can detect the leak without drilling a hole unless it is necessary. A professional plumbing team will not only work at a reasonable pace and work in clean stations, but will make sure the job is done correctly. The right type of piping is crucial in preventing unexpected pinhole and slab leaks. There are quality piping products such as Uponor PEX A or the Viega PEX B which have an exceptional flow path, wall thickness and internal diameter which will prevent these issues. In addition, you will notice higher water pressure and quicker hot water to your fixtures. If you have not had the piping in your home inspected in a while and would like an in-home inspection, you can call the professionals at Integrity Repipe, Inc. at 949-485-5484 or visit their website at www.integrityrepipe.com

YOUR WOOD

CABINETS AND FLOORS

O

ver time wood cabinets and floors look flat and lifeless due to dirt build up, wear and tear, scratches and age-discolored finishes. Cabinet and floor renewal is an innovative and affordable alternative to replacing, refacing (new doors), painting or traditional sanding/refinishing. In only a few days, your wood cabinets and floors will be restored to that likeâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;new luster without the inconvenience, dust and odors from harsh chemicals. At a fraction of the cost, it will save you time and money. If you are looking to change the color of your cabinets, one option is to make a slight color change giving your cabinets a warmer tone of the wood without covering the wood grains. Pigments and dyes can be added to the new finish so that you can achieve virtually any color desired. Say you have maple cabinets and would like a slightly darker stained wood, the new finish can be custom dyed to your color preference and then professionally applied. You can choose to do a complete color change, which will dramatically change the style and look of your cabinets. Select from custom durable color finishes that do not chip or peel, and when applied there are no drips, streaks or bleed thru. If repairs are needed like gaps, holes, splintered wood, etc, they are made during the wood surface cleaning process. N-Hance Wood Renewal uses their proprietary, state-of-the-art non-toxic and odorless products. These products along with their advanced technology and processes were developed to provide consistent high quality results. For more information you can call, N-Hance Wood Renewal at (714) 907-1917.

When Was the Last Time

Your Barbeque Shined Like New?

T

here is nothing better than a home cooked meal on the grill, especially when the weather starts to warm up and it’s hard not to take the food and entertaining outdoors. However, if you have recently found yourself staring at that dirty barbeque, wondering whether or not it’s even safe to cook on, you are definitely not alone. Eventually, all barbeques start to accumulate grime and grease, no matter how hard you scrub it. Both the grill and the exterior of a barbeque will inevitably lose that like-new luster, and this can happen fairly quickly if you are a regular griller. If you just can’t seem to get things clean, then the time has come to call the professionals for a barbeque makeover. Using a professional-grade steam cleaner, your barbeque will be sanitized with a deep cleaning that helps clear any stubborn grease and residue from your burners. This ensures an even flame as well as enhanced grill performance, completely eliminating hot spots. A professionally cleaned barbeque will not only extend the life of your unit, it will also ensure that your grilled favorites cook better and taste fresher. Additionally, your rejuvenated barbeque will be able to prevent rust, as well as ash, soot, and grease build-up. Keep your backyard looking beautiful and your food tasting delicious!

The Beautiful Energy Revolution

FOR THE DESIGN CONSCIOUS

M

any homeowners are converting to solar to save on their energy bills and help the planet. However, an alternative to having panels on your rooftop can now be a beautiful, stylish, kinetic piece of art right in your yard to provide clean energy for your home. The name Smartflower™, the world’s first all-in-one, self-contained, portable solar system, comes from its design. The solar cells are arranged on free rotating individual “petals” that open at the beginning of each day. After the sun goes down, the Smartflower petals fold down and a self-cleaning process kicks in. Behind each solar petal are brushes that automatically remove debris, allowing for more sunlight to be converted to energy. The petals stay cool due to excellent ventilation, resulting in up to 10% more efficiency. In addition to solar cells, the Smartflower is designed with dual-axis tracking technology. Utilizing location, date and time calculations, the petals follow the sun across the sky throughout the day from both east to west and north to south, even when it’s cloudy. Due to the tracking and self-cleaning capability, combined with cool petals, the Smartflower produces significantly more electricity than a similarly-sized conventional solar system - up to 58% more. For such a smart system, Smartflower is incredibly low-maintenance. After a simple installation, Smartflower quickly adapts to its environment. It asks nothing of you except to just go about your day and use the clean energy it provides.
