ARE BUILT-INS THE ANSWER?

YES!

by info@homeperfectdesign.com HOME AND INTERIOR I get asked how to help turn a blank wall into something more stylish and functional. Other times we search for solutions for more kitchen seating and storage. There are a lot of design questions that stump us when we want to incorporate style, organization, and functionality. My favorite solution is built-ins. They are sophisticated solutions for a dramatic transformation. Built-ins are a big win because they enhance your home’s look and they also maximize the potential for a usable area. Built-in options are endless; your imagination should have no limits when dreaming up your perfect built-in feature. There are zero rules. Some of my favorites are the kitchen nook, window bench, and home office elements. KITCHEN BANQUETTE OR NOOK IS LIKE ICING ON A CAKE Built-in seating is one of my favorite ways to transform the heart of the home. Let’s face it, you and your family spend so much time wrapped around the kitchen island or seated at the counter that a

into what could become your favorite space in the house. THE HOME OFFICE MADE SLEEK An office away from the “real” office should be anything but sterile. A home office gives the homeowner the creative freedom they may not have at work and should inspire hard work, creativity, and relaxation. For one of my clients, I added a gorgeous, masculine grasscloth wallpaper that draws the eye toward the stunning built-in unit made of washed walnut with granite counter top. This wall of cabinets and file cabinets spanning 15 feet are a simple storage solution for eyesore office equipment or files. Built-in desks are like magic. They transform an existing space into one that suddenly seems to have grown without adding on square footage. One room can instantly become a stunning home office for two with plenty of workspaces, storage, and organization. Make it dual and duplicate the design around a window.

This display cabinet and wine storage become the focal point of the room.

AS A DESIGNER, I OFTEN HEAR FROM MY CLIENTS THAT THEY WANT TO BRING MORE ORGANIZATION AND STYLE INTO THEIR LIVING ROOM. custom built-in kitchen nook can both offer traditional comfort seating or added storage in a banquette seat. There are countless options to include built-ins into the kitchen, from the dreamy, timeless L-shaped eat-in kitchen island to window seating that brings with it elegant natural light to every meal right in your own home. DINE IN WITH A BUILT-IN Dining rooms are also perfect spaces to add built-ins. A plain dining room wall can serve as your piece of furniture. The dining room was staged by Home Perfect Design, showcasing the stylish and functional use of built-in display cabinets, wine bar, and custom buffet.

Window cushion seating with bench storage turns a regular wall into multifaceted design and function.

WHIMSICAL WINDOW BENCH What is not to love about a classic window bench? Dress it up with throw pillows and it becomes a comfortable space that’s hard to leave. Have an electrician wire for side reading lights and design drawers below, now that’s a solution. When I think of window benches, I think of classic, romantic homes where even the smallest detail creates big moments. Seating that frames a window is practical with storage solutions and converts an empty, dull area

You won't miss an old-fashioned filing cabinet with these built-ins for a luxurious home office.

CHARMING SPACE FOR PETS Built-ins go beyond bookcases and storage, they can be delightful units for our beloved pets, too. I love that this homeowner made sure to incorporate their pets when designing a built-in around the fireplace. This inspirational photo showcases plush seating and velvet tufted backing with a neutral curtain to create a glamorous and functional pet bed and toy storage. We frequently hear homeowners ask for pet built-ins because they elevate the space in both practical and aesthetically pleasing ways.

TRADITIONAL BUILT-IN BOOKCASE GETS A MAKEOVER Still, among the most convenient built-ins, HPD client living room with custom built-in media center and bridge. there remains the bookcase. But now we are seeing the common bookcase get a complete makeover. The styles are leaning more rustic and modern to include media cabinets or floating shelving. Gone are the days where we just had a bookcase flanking a fireplace. Designers are adding them to dining rooms or under a bench; options are reaching beyond their namesake, to not only store books, but to breakthrough with stunning craftsmanship. They become themselves a fabulous decorative element in your home.

Have you always dreamed of having a model home? Let Home Perfect Design collaborate with you and make your dream truly a reality. We will transform your life when we reinvent your spaces and help you curate home goods you never thought that you could afford. The client is her world. Design is her passion. Perfection is her mastery. Perfecting homes to sell or dwell™

It is here to stay

How do we cope?

How does EMF harm us?

Identify the sources of EMF exposure and the degree of severity

EMF sets off a chain reaction, starting with creating a subtle effect on the skin’s cell membrane that affects the calcium channels (how calcium moves in and out of the cell), releasing oxidizing chemicals that attack cell components, resulting in mitochondrial damage (the energy powerhouse of the cell), DNA damage and intra and extracellular damage. The result is a lack of coherence, the cells no longer communicate effectively creating dis-ease. Iron, necessary for healthy blood and many other metabolic functions, is highly affected by EMF. The permeability of the cell membrane of nerves, blood vessels, skin, and other organs are affected as well. Symptoms related to EMF exposure could be headaches, fatigue, dizziness, skin rashes, miscarriage, leukemia, and cancer. Animals are particularly sensitive to EMF and suffer the same deleterious effects.

There are specific meters for the 4 different EMF types (electric, magnetic, high frequency and dirty electricity). A. Turn it off, unplug it or get rid of the device creating EMF (if you can live without it). Consider putting devices on a timer so they are not running during the times you are in that area. B. Create distance between you (your pets) and the source. Replace fluorescent bulbs. Remove WiFi and hardwire to the internet or turn off the WiFi when not home (for the pets safety) and when sleeping. Use a battery alarm clock or move it and small appliances away from the bed. Keep the cell phone further away from the body by using the speaker. Hair dryers create massive EMF. Use a hose extension to create distance. Use corded phones. Sleep in an electricity free bedroom (turn the power off at the breaker box). Try not to use lap tops while they are charging. Maintain The Best Immune System C. Shielding. Personal shielding devices include clothing, bedding, bed canopies, and drapes. Walls can be shielded with special paint and fabrics. Since 80% of the immune system lives in the gut, improve digestion! Appliances/ equipment can be shielded as well. We are living in the electronic revolution.

QSolar &A on My Home || FEATURE ||

T

about

here are 2 main types of solar used in Florida; thermal solar which uses the heat from your roof to warm up your pool or fill your hot water tank, and photovoltaic solar which uses photons from the sun to generate electricity. For this article I’m going to answer some of the common questions homeowners ask when they are shopping for a photovoltaic array to reduce their electric bill. Until the end of 2019 there is a 30% federal tax credit that you can get on solar AND a new roof if you install both in the same calendar year. This means that if you get a new a roof for $12,000 and a solar array for another $12,000 (for a total of $24,000) you will get back $7,200 from the federal government. In the last 2 years I’ve helped over 300 homeowners buy solar across seven different counties around Tampa Bay, and there is a 10 kilowatt solar array on my roof in the Stagecoach subdivision in Wesley Chapel. 1. How much will solar cost? This depends upon 2 factors: the square footage of your roof and the power needs (daily kilowatt usage) of your home. My parents live in a new home in Wesley Chapel, and the cost of their system after the federal tax credit was $8,000. That system eliminated $110 per month in energy costs, and their payment on their system at a 4% loan is $78 per month. Instead of paying $110 per month to the electric company my parents are sending $78 per month to pay off their solar array. If financed, solar is always less expensive than paying the electric company, and solar adds to the value of your home. 2. OK, how much will solar add to the value of my home? A quick Google search on this subject will point you to several different studies made across 40 states that demonstrate how solar increases the resale of a home from

Page 8 • DECEMBER 2018

3% to 10%. Of course, if you sell during a deep recession you might not see this kind of gain. I live in a home valued at $220,000, my solar array generates $2400 per year in electricity, that’s $24,000 generated in the next decade. My system was $16,000 after the federal tax rebate, so my solar array will pay for itself in less than 7 years. If I sell my home in the future for just 2% more I’ll pocket $4,500 and walk away very happy. 3. How does the Federal Tax Credit on solar work? The federal tax credit is 30% of the cost of any solar array on a home or business excluding solar pool heaters, which are considered a luxury purchase by the IRS. The credit can be used for solar hot waters heaters for the home, solar pool pumps and any photovoltaic array. The 30% tax credit for solar expires on December 31rst, 2019. This is a TAX CREDIT, so you can’t use it unless you pay taxes to the federal government. If your annual household income is below $30,000 per year it might take you several years to use your tax credit. For instance, if you only pay $3,000 per year in federal taxes and you get a solar tax credit for $9,000 it will have to carry forward three years for you to recoup the full $9,000. The solar tax credit is dollar for dollar, if you own a business and pay taxes at the end of the year you can use the tax credit instead of writing a check to Uncle Sam. In this case you might owe $10,000 for 2018, but you had solar installed and you have a tax credit for $7,000. Send in the tax credit and $3,000 and you are paid up.

4. How does my solar array work at night? It doesn’t. A solar array in Florida will generate power (even on a cloudy day) from about 8AM until sundown. Most of the systems we install are net metered to the power grid; during the day the system generates more than you need and these extra kilowatts are pushed back to the grid via a bi-directional meter installed by the electric company. These banked kilowatts are like rollover minutes on a cell phone, during the winter my system produces more than I need and these kilowatts are credited to my bill. In the summer when I crank up my AC my stored bank of kilowatts comes back to me. 5. What about during a power outage? If you install an SMA inverter you will have power from your solar during the day, even if the electric company goes dark. I have the SMA system on my home, it gives me 4,000 watts during peak sunlight during an outage. Some inverters do NOT have this capability, namely SolarEdge and Enphase systems. If you want a 24 hour battery back-up system you’ll spend $15,000 to $25,000 for the batteries alone. Battery costs will come down in the next few years, however. If you have any other questions please reach out to me at 813-391-3895. BEN ALEXANDER Sales Director TAMPABAYSOLAR.COM

Lawn &

Garden

December, 2018

What to Plant

Annuals/Bedding plants: To add color to the winter garden, plant masses of petunia, pansy, and snapdragon. Bulbs: Amaryllis is a popular plant for the holiday season. It can be forced to bloom now or planted outdoors for spring blooms. Herbs: Plant herbs that thrive in cool weather. Some examples include parsley, thyme, sage, dill, fennel, and cilantro. Vegetables: Reliable cool-season vegetables to plant this month include celery, cauliflower, lettuce, cabbage, and carrot.

What to Do

Poinsettias: Enjoy one of the most popular indoor holiday plants. Protect it from cold until spring, and then plant it in the garden for next year. Lawn disease: Continue to watch for brown patch and large patch, fungal diseases that cause areas of grass to turn brown. Since treatment is difficult, prevention with proper cultural practices is key. These diseases become active when the soil temperature, measured 2–4 in. deep, is between 65°F and 75°F and go dormant when the weather warms in May. Houseplants: Inspect regularly for pests on indoor plants. Keep in mind that plant-specific temperature, light, and humidity are key to ensuring that indoor plants thrive. Soil test: Consider performing a soil test if plants do not perform as desired or if new plantings are planned. Compost/mulch: Use fallen leaves to provide the carbon ingredient needed for successful composting and also to make a good mulch. Landscape and garden pests: Continue monitoring and treat as needed. While cooler weather generally means fewer pests, some populations actually increase at this time of year.
