Cuddle up to the perfect duvet A good quality duvet is comfortable and durable. It is light and fluffy, keeps you warm, and is tidily put back into place when it’s time to make the bed. If made of superior materials, a duvet should be sturdy and resistant to wear and tear. When shopping for a duvet, your first step is to choose the type of filling you want: natural or synthetic. Among the natural fibres, goose or duck down are the most popular. Very warm and light, down allows good air circulation, is insulating, and absorbs humidity. The higher the percentage of down content, the more the duvet will be lighter, fluffier, comfortable, and insulating. Goose down is the softest and fluffiest of all. Synthetic fibres are usually composed of polyester and absorb more humidity. Much less expensive, polyester duvets

www.propertyinpenticton.com

are particularly suited to allergy or asthma sufferers, young children, and babies. Compare the characteristics of the fibres used so that you will find a duvet that is suitably comfortable and durable. Microfibre duvets are warm, cozy, and comfortable. The shells of good-quality duvets are usually made of cotton, which allows the filling to breathe and allows humidity to escape. Choose 100 percent cotton with a high thread count (at least 260).

1196 KING STREET

Location, Location, Location! Contingent- Court ordered sale. 2 bed home on corner lot with back lane access. Sold as is where is. MLS®140452

The construction of a duvet can also affect its quality. The different types of stitching should keep the filling in place in order to conserve heat and volume. With natural filling, a box-baffle construction keeps the feathers evenly distributed throughout the duvet. With synthetic filling, row stitching or an open de­sign improve thermal insu­lation and fluffiness.

$174,900

In the design world, mixing a variety of textures, metallic finishes, and bright colours will create an interesting visual effect. However, it is important that all these elements must be harmonized and the right tone maintained throughout the room.

Covers add style and colour to duvets.

In the living room and the bedroom, for example, choose simple furniture, a neutral upholstery fabric, and understated bedding which can be dressed up with more fashionable and extravagant accessories. A scattering of cushions is great for this task. Choose elegant yet comfortable cushions in a variety of complementary fabrics, tones, and patterns. They can be woven, embroidered, quilted, fluffy, pearly, sequined, or leather look.

The ultimate in home cinemas

Acoustics and soundproofing • Think carefully about acou­ stics. The ideal is to have a good balance between absor­

bing materials and reflecting materials. You can insulate the walls, floor, and ceiling with specially designed insulating wool and then install acoustic panels on the walls and ceiling. • Plan on insulating the walls to a thickness of around 10 mm. Keep in mind that rectangular rooms give better sound quality. • Take advantage of any insulating work to hide away electrical sheaths and the cable network required for your installation. • Choose a full door made of steel or wood. • Install a floating floor covered by wall-towall carpeting. • Dress the windows with drapes made of a thick fabric. • Opt for discreet lighting, such as wall lamps or recessed ceiling lights equipped with dimmers.

The room’s dimensions will determine the size of the television screen and the number of seats.

Dress up the bathroom with a chrome shelving unit and an acrylic or metal bench with a fabric seat. Other fun touches include a clock fixed to the wall of the shower and an essential oil diffus-

PHOTO: polka dot images / THINKSTOCK

Positioning and equipment • Calculate the distance available between the screen and the seating area. Plan for a distance that is between 2.5 to 3 times the size of the screen, measured on the diagonal. For example, a 40-inch screen would require a distance from the chairs of around 2.5 to 3 metres. • To ensure comfortable seating, plan about 90 cm for the width of each chair and calculate for about 80 cm of space behind the seats and along all the walls to facilitate movement. • Install your front speakers at the height of the spectators’ ears, around 91 cm from the floor, and 30 cm from each side of the screen. In the back corners of the room, position your rear speakers a bit higher, around 1.22 metres from the ground. Put the bass speaker on the floor under the screen. All electronic equip­ ment can be kept in a speci­ ally designed cabinet.

Accessories make the décor

To keep your duvet for a long time and through many bedroom décors, choose a 100 percent cotton duvet cover.

Creating a useful and fun home cinema requires a great deal of careful planning. Here are a few tips to help you get started:

Each office is independently owned and operated.

er that is both decorative and relaxing as it spreads natural fragrance throughout the room. In the bedroom, install small pieces of furniture that are both practical and esthetic, such as a hand-painted dressing table or a jewellery box whose shape and material organically fit with the rest of the décor. Artwork has its place everywhere in the home. You could opt for a single large piece or several pictures positioned in a symmetrical or asymmetrical arrangement, depending on the look you want to create. Sculptures take pride of place on a pedestal, shelf, or low table. Art not only adds colour and style, it can become the focal point or lend inspiration to the rest of the décor. In a contemporary home modern art is appropriate, while in a more traditional style of home, a copy of something by an old master with an antique frame would be suitable. Go for an oversized modern painting enhanced by generous lighting.
