A panoply of trends underfoot Resisting the temptation of exotic wood flooring will be extremely difficult this year. We will all be dreaming about African mahogany with its warm, classy tones: sand, terracotta, copper, caramel, and even green and blue. Rustic hickory and dark knotty walnut are also high on the dream-renovation list. Luckily for us, hardwood flooring is now available in a huge range of different finishes. Your natural wood floor can be hand scraped, brushed, or distressed in order to highlight knots and grains. New colours and contrasting tones are also on offer.

Visit us at Booth 119 & 120

Easier to maintain, the new hardwood floors that are factory sealed and oiled have a smoother, glossier finish. Pre-varnished wood now comes with embossed surfaces that create a wave-like effect. Moreover, advances in nanotechnology have enabled the production of a varnish with more effective anti-abrasive qualities. Whether prevarnished or pre-oiled, the new engineered wood floors, which can be used as floating floor or glued directly to the subfloor, ensure good soundproofing. Another new trend: wood floors with wide planks that create a rustic look. The latest in ceramics is perfect for both floors and walls. New porcelain stoneware tiles create a contemporary look. Ceramic and precision-ground enameled porcelain have now taken on the form of planks that vary in shade and texture to imitate wood. And PVC flooring, which imitates wood and even stone, is also available. Innovations in linoleum production have allowed manufacturers to produce a wide range of textures and colours, including an imitation leather that uses eco-friendly materials. A floorcovering for every room The latest trends will allow you to choose from some interesting innovations, but of course you will need to take into account the demands of each room before settling on a choice. If your main criterion is comfort, for a bedroom or living room for example, carpet Continued on page 4

is a traditional choice. For the more environmentally minded, hardwood, engineered wood, laminate, or a floating wood floor are also great choices. For rooms with higher humidity levels, such as a bathroom or kitchen, ceramic is an especially suitable type of flooring to consider. You could also opt for vinyl or the new types of laminate, which are water-resistant. For a bathroom, think about limiting the risks of slipping as well as comfort. Natural stone could be an interesting choice here. Engineered hardwood flooring is also a good option for the kitchen, as it is durable and easy to maintain, a perfect combination for this part of your home. Flooring in the dining room must be stain resistant. Choose wood, laminate, vinyl, or a dark-coloured carpet. For high traffic areas, such as the entrance hall or the family room, opt for a durable and comfortable floor covering such as carpeting, hardwood, engineered hardwood, or laminate. For the basement, it is very important that the subfloor be well insulated. Suitable flooring could include carpet, engineered hardwood, laminate, or vinyl. Cork flooring is a great choice for a home cinema room or playroom because of its excellent soundproofing qualities. All types of flooring are available in varying qualities and a wide range of prices. For help in making the right choice, consult an interior decorator NEW HOME CONSTRUCTION

Accessories make the décor In the design world, mixing a variety of textures, metallic finishes, and bright colors 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. 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. 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 diffuser 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 jewelry 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 color 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.

Hansen Recycling & Transfer Station Construction & Demolition

Once you decide on exactly what you want, your next step is to draw up a plan. This will help you ensure that there is room enough for people to circulate. Decide if you prefer enclosed rooms or open areas. If activities that require quiet and concentration are planned, such as a home office, a library, or a bedroom, you will probably opt for enclosed rooms. On the other hand, an open area is perfect if you plan to spend time in a communal, multifunctional space, such as in a rec room, home cinema, or exercise area. Draw up a list of the necessary materials and determine what work you can do yourself and what you need to entrust to a contractor. Needless to say, the plumbing and electricity should be carried out by qualified professionals. Establish a schedule that takes into account your priorities and your budget, and you’re on your way!

The ultimate in home theater Creating a useful and fun home cinema requires a great deal of careful planning. Here are a few tips to help you get started: 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 8 to 10 feet. • To ensure comfortable seating, plan about 35 inches for the width of each chair and calculate for about 31 inches 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 36 inches from the floor, and 12 inches from each side of the screen. In the back corners of the room, position your rear speakers a bit higher, around 48 inches from the ground. Put the bass speaker on the floor under the screen. All electronic equipment can be kept in a specially designed cabinet. Acoustics and soundproofing • Think carefully about acoustics. The ideal is to have a good balance between absorbing 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 1/2 inch.

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 fibers, 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 fibers are usually composed of polyester and absorb more humidity. Much less expensive, polyester duvets are particularly suited to allergy or asthma sufferers, young children, and babies. Compare the characteristics of the fibers used so that you will find a duvet that is suitably comfortable and durable. Microfiber duvets are warm, cozy, and comfortable.

HOME MAGAZINE I MARCH 19 - 25, 2013

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).

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

Renovating a bathroom, step by step The work of renovating a bathroom starts with the plumbing and electricity. Those steps should be entrusted to qualified professionals who are aware of current building regulations and can conform to standards. Tell your plumber where you want the bathroom fixtures, taking into account the layout of the floor joists and the position of the drain. Explain to your electrician where you need electrical outlets and ventilation. If you want a heated floor or a whirlpool bath, he or she will ensure that there are free circuits available on your breaker panel. If there are none, the panel will have to be upgraded.

The next step consists of installing the new fixtures and the faucets. If you have opted for a custom ceramic shower that has to be built on-site, start with that job, which shouldn’t present any difficulty for an experienced handyman. Next, install the bath, toilet, and pedestal sink. Proceed with the sink first if it is the type that is to be installed on a vanity or countertop. If you have a built-in sink, fix it to the counter and then to the cabinet unit. The next step is the installation of the cabinets, drawers, and countertop, if the latter isn’t part of a vanity. Choose materials that are easy to maintain and water resistant. The final step is to install light fixtures, mirrors, towel racks, grab bars, and other accessories.

Painting the walls and ceiling and replacing the floorcovering are much easier when the bathroom has been stripped of its old fixtures. Start with the paintwork and then proceed to the floorcovering; be sure to choose coverings that are easy to maintain and water and humidity resistant.

French doors or sliding patio doors? Unlike sliding patio doors, French patio doors are hinged and open inwards. This means they aren’t especially designed to be left open, like sliding doors, to let in the fresh air on warm days. Even though sliding doors can be used to access the backyard, French doors are more specifically designed to fulfill the role of a main door. In other words, they’re a great choice for energy efficiency if they serve as entry doors, where there is a regular flow of traffic in and out of the home. 410 Broadway St. Cleveland, MN

Their one drawback is that they require a lot of interior space, whereas sliding doors don’t. In fact, French doors must be able to open completely without encumbering the room, with nothing in the way to hinder their opening. Nevertheless, French doors are suitable for all styles of home and let in an abundance of natural light. They are extremely esthetic and come in a vast choice of panels, sizes, and glass pane formations. Some come with stunning stained-glass, beautiful moldings, and elegant handles, and frames in wood, steel, and PVC all have their special characteristics. The key element to look for is impeccable construction, durability, and optimum resistance to bad weather. An efficient locking system is also essential. The cost of good quality French doors is certainly higher than sliding doors, although the latter are now available in styles that resemble French doors. French doors are suitable for all styles of home and let in an abundance of natural light.


The first factor to consider when choosing a light fixture is what you want it to do. A directional lamp is suitable for specific tasks such as reading or cooking, while a light fixture with a dimmer is preferable for creating atmosphere. Outdoor lighting requires fixtures designed to withstand bad weather. Designs vary greatly, as they may be used for security purposes or to show off a landscaping feature. Inside the home, ensure that the style of your light is suitable for the area where it will be installed. A modern lamp or recessed light will harmonize with a contemporary décor or a Zen atmosphere, whereas an antique or Victorian style lamp is essential for a rustic or traditional style.

Lights that create a stunning effect

Bear in mind that if you place your table lamp or torchiere in a corner, its light will be reflected on two walls, amplifying luminosity. Light fixtures installed on pastel colored walls and ceilings will be more efficient, as pale www.bargeninc.com bbuilders@bargeninc.com lic # BC125765

surfaces reflect about 80 percent of the light. Because dark surfaces only reflect about 10 percent, think about installing more lamps or fixtures in a room with dark walls in order to create sufficient light. You can also choose your lights according to the effect you want to create. The range of different models available on the market is so vast that you’re bound to find the look you’ve set your heart on. There are also light fixtures that give different types of light, such as a flattering light for the bathroom, a shadowless light for the kitchen, a gentle glow in the dining room, as well as mood and indirect lighting for the living room and bedroom.
