Versatility Of An Extending Dining Table

When you’re pressed for space in the dining room or any other room in which you plan to put the dining table, there is a simple available to you. An extending dining table can fit into a smaller room taking up only a minimum of space when it is only needed for a small gathering and then, when required for larger occasions, it may be extended to seat the entire party.

The extending dining tables available give you the opportunity to place a large dining table into a small apartment or a room that is required for other functions apart from dining and do so with a range of different looks and designs.

The tables themselves may operate in a number of different ways. Some contain the extendable section of table underneath the shorter version and, when required, may be simply pulled into place by tugging on either end of the table. Other tables have a separate section that can be brought in and dropped into the gap after unlatching either end and pulling them apart.

An extending dining table may be as simple as a drop leaf table that can convert from two to four people or a much larger oak table that starts out reasonably large and ends up huge. You may have a small square dining table that can be extended out into a larger rectangle, or a circular dining table that can be extended to a long oval shape. In all cases, the extending dining table proves that it is possible to get the best of both worlds, even if it is only in the dining room.

Here are a few extending dining tables that are available for sale with more information about each.

One of the considerations you are going to have to make when you buy an extending dining table is that when the table is not extended it will only need the minimum number of chairs placed around it. At this point there is going to have to be a place where the extra chairs can be stored wile they are not in use. They can then be brought out when the dining table is converted into its extended configuration.

Having an extendable dining table in your home allows you to adapt quickly to unexpected guests with a minimum of fuss. The usual configurations that you will see are 4 seater dining tables that can be extended to seat six to eight, or six seater dining tables that can be extended to seat 8 or, in some cases up to 12 people.

Whether you live in an apartment and are pressed for space or you live in a large house but only require a small dining table apart from occasional gatherings, an extending dining table is a valuable piece of furniture for the versatility it gives you.

A Traditional Look With Pinch Pleat Drapes

If you haven’t had a lot to do with drape styles before you may be having a little difficulty with the various terms used to describe certain styles. Take, for example, pinch pleat drapes. This is a style that is one of the most popular basic drape styles but the question remains what is it about this type of drapes that makes it so popular?

Pinch pleat drapes are essentially made of fabric panels which are drawn in at regular intervals by pleats that are formed by pinching the fabric together at the top of the panel to create billowing folds. Pinch pleats are made by gathering three smaller folds and fastening them together so it looks as if the fabric were pinched together with the fingers. The pinch pleats gather the fabric tightly at the top and create voluminous folds in the panels that extend to the floor. These tucks of fabric make pinch pleat curtain panels more full than curtain panels without pleats.

Buy pinch pleat drapes from the selection shown below.

[phpzon]pinch pleat drapes, 8, HomeGarden[/phpzon]

Because the pinch pleats create depth and movement drapes with pinch pleats look especially nice when they are made with fabrics that catch the light. Silk pinch pleated drapes shimmer in the light at the peaks of the folds and descend into a deeper shadow in the crevices creating both rich and tonal colors and a luminous effect. Silk pinch pleated drapes look especially opulent when made of a dark midnight blue silk or in various golden tones. Golden silk drapes look beautiful in a sunny room when really glisten in the sunlight.

Another type of fabric which works nicely with the depth and movement of the pinch pleats is striped fabric. Instead of the pattern which would be seen if striped fabric were to lay flat, the pleats arrange the stripes in a new way which is not as evenly punctuated. The same concept applies with all fabrics patterned with straight lines such as checks and plaids.

Pinch pleat drapes are made in heavier fabrics that can be used to block out intense sunlight, and are also made in semi transparent lighter polyester fabrics which still provide the volume of the pleats but let the light shine through them as well. Most pinch pleat drapes are made with a pocket to slide onto a curtain rod which is good for curtains which are going to stay in one place on the window. Pinch pleat drapes can also be clipped to curtain rings which slide easily across a curtain rod if the drapes will be opened and closed on a regular basis.

The reason that pinch pleat drapes are such a popular choice is because they are a traditional pleat type that gives the drapes an immediate charm. The pleats create an attractive fan effect along the top edge and fall to make a consistent pattern along the top that allows the drapes to hang in a way that gives them more volume.

A Copper Bar Sink – Artistic and Functional

You may not always do all of your entertaining direct from the kitchen and the secondary area may require another sink. This smaller isolated sink is often referred to as a bar sink, whether or not it’s actually part of a bar. The bar sink is a smaller affair than the main kitchen bar so a nice idea is to make it a stand out feature installing one made of copper, metal that will really give the area some visual appeal.

If you have a bar in your home, you probably want it to fit in with the design and decor of your home in every detail. Art does not have to be wall or table art. Most decorators will tell you that art is always best when it is functional. One piece of art you can add in your home bar that is beautiful and functional is a Mexican copper bar sink.

A copper bar sink is an unusual piece of art, as most people do not think of a sink as art, but it will definitely be a conversation piece when your guest see it. It will make your bar stand out and improve the value of your home.

Take a look at the beautiful copper bar sinks that have been displayed below and are available for sale.

[phpzon]copper bar sink, 8, HomeGarden[/phpzon]

Mexican copper bar sinks are handmade, by skilled artisans in the western mountains of Mexico. These artisans have a long tradition of working copper that has been passed from generation. It is not unusual in these mountains to find entire family working together, teaching the children how to preserve the ancient traditions and to produce elaborate copper bar sinks.

Although the sink may look like more like a decorative feature rather than a functional part of the home, don’t be tempted to dismiss them completely. They have not been built simply to be looked at and admired. Nothing could be further from the truth; copper sinks are as sturdy as any stainless steel or aluminum bar sinks.

Copper sinks are also easy to clean, they do not require anything more than a mild detergent and a soft cloth. The only precaution would be against using corrosive materials like chlorine bleach or concentrated vinegar. Since most copper bar sinks come with a patina surface, the sink is protected from most elements.

Both the artistic qualities of the handmade copper bar sink, and its patina surface contribute to making each bar sink a unique piece that will never be found elsewhere. Age will not only add beauty it will also change the nature of the sink’s surface. Although the new metal shine is removed from the sink, it is replaced by colors and striations that make it look even more interesting and unusual.
Copper is a metal that naturally contains antibacterial properties so the area is going to be a lot more easy to keep clean which is another of the selling points of a copper sink.
For the house that is host to many large get togethers a bar sink would be an important addition in the home and a copper bar sink would turn it into a stand out item.

Granite Kitchen Sink

There are many different kinds of kitchen sink materials to choose from such as the more traditional stainless steel kitchen sink to the types that aren’t seen nearly as much such as the copper kitchen sink. But one type of sink, the granite kitchen sink, will prove to be a particularly hard wearing and low-maintenance option that is becoming increasingly popular.

Granite kitchen sinks are made out of a composite granite material that has been cut and shaped to create a stunning looking sink. The sink is designed to withstand all sorts of heavy knocks with the fact that it cannot be chipped and resists scratching two of the more important reasons for buying one.

The other very important reason for wanting to get a granite kitchen sink is the look that it will give to the kitchen. In terms of a sink that will look out of this world the granite sink will transform any kitchen into which it is installed. Granite is a diverse sort of stone that has a large range of colors that can range from greens to pinks and whites and everywhere in between.

When a granite sink is set into a granite countertop the result is one harmonious design that will look clean and smooth, fresh as it is possible to get.

You’re not limited to a single size or depth with a granite sink with a full range available to cater for any kitchen needs. As well as a drop in look you have the more preferred undermount fixture. In most cases the counter and the sink will both be made of granite and so it makes sense to ensure it flows easily from one part of the house to the next.

It is possible, depending on the quality of the water that flows into it, that the sink can become stained with a white limestone-like deposit. This can happen with constant use and the water isn’t as clean as it could be. What is left behind is a chalky deposit that can become difficult to remove if it is left there for too long.

One method of cleaning a granite kitchen sink is to scrub it down with a mixture of hot water and white vinegar. Make sure the scrubbing is done with a soft scourer such as a Scotchbrite pad. A firm scrub should bring the sink back to near original condition.

Granite sinks are a terrific option as a low maintenance choice that also has the distinction of looking mighty fine into the bargain. Not only are granite sinks available as the standard single or double models but they can be bought as corner kitchen sinks too.

Visiting a few stores, either bricks and mortar or online, is a definite option that will quickly allow you to see just how many different types o granite kitchen sinks for sale there are.

Kitchen Island Designs

An effective method of creating more counter space in the kitchen, particularly in an overly large kitchen, is to have a kitchen island installed. There are a surprising number of kitchen island designs to choose from that can serve all kinds of functions. The kitchen is the busiest room in most households and a well designed kitchen island can very well become the hub of the home.

You will find kitchen islands for sale further down this page.

Rather than entering into the possibility that a kitchen island will not meet the needs of a bustling family, take the view that you can have a kitchen island built would not only solve this issue for you but also give your children an area to sit and do home work while you prepare dinner or to expand a natural gathering place in your home. Having an island designed and built is a cost effective way of expanding your kitchen’s ability to manage the traffic of your family and friends.

Kitchen island designs are very similar to each other. There are two options for design and those are the kitchen island cart and the fixed island. Of course the difference between these two is the ability to move them. Each design has general dimensions that can be increased or decreased according to the needs of the specific customer. These changes of course will change the amount of storage space that is available but not the overall function of the island. The size of your kitchen will likely determine if you want to be able to move the countertop to accommodate guests or have a permanent countertop to accommodate your family.

So what are some of the more popular kitchen island designs? Let’s start with the permanent islands and you can go with a simple small countertop with under bench storage, something that might complement a traditional L-shaped kitchen. In a larger kitchen you might go with an oversized square kitchen island that will give you extended cabinetry underneath and perhaps a cooktop in the center.

Another popular kitchen island design is the island that accommodates seating on one or a couple of sides. This creates the perfect gathering place in the kitchen and turns it into the heart of the home.

Floating kitchen islands take a number of different forms and starts with the small cart, moving up to a butcher’s block and up to a more extravagant mobile table. These are perfect for the smaller ktichens where you only need the extra coutner space on a temporary basis.

The cost of course, will depend of the extent of material and complexity of the design. Islands construction can be done from most any type of wood material as long as it is sturdy and has some durability. The countertops also vary in style and material. A few of the most common countertop materials include laminate, butcher block, marble and granite. The cost will also be determined by availability and whether or not the island is custom built.

A feature that is a popular addition to the kitchen island is a sink, which will require some plumbing to be done before adding the cabinets. A stove top, particularly one that sits flush with the rest of the counter is another nice feature for the island. However adding this to the kitchen island may negate some of the other possible functions such as using it as a servery or a place where children can sit.

Islands that are already fabricated can be purchased right away and delivered or installed with minimal planning. Many of us have specific needs, though, and for this reason they will decide to install a custom island that requires more planning, a solid design and lengthy discussion with the builder. If the island will be added to the existing kitchen and unmovable, serious considerations will need to be discussed and planned before construction begins. Moveable islands are a great deal less complicated but if building, will need to be given the same considerations so that style and efficiency are well thought-out.

As with all new features the kitchen island design that you choose should attempt to meet the needs of the entire family. Safety issues must be considered as well as the most efficient use of the space.

Slate Coffee Tables–Perfect for Any Decor

Slate coffee tables have become very popular in recent years. What used to be rare and found exclusively in the homes of the wealthy is now available to everyone. Slate was formed billions of years ago by the mixture of volcanic lava over a mixture of clay and ash. Because it formed in layers, the formed slate can be cut into slabs and then cut into thin layers. It is these final thin sheets that are used to form slate for coffee tables.

Slate is the perfect choice for your coffee table because of its intrinsic beauty. It is naturally gray in color but the variations of gray differ significantly depending upon where it was sourced. The colors in slate draw attention and can be found to complement a variety of color schemes. Additionally, slate coffee tables come in many different styles.

Take a look at the various slate coffee table styles diesplayed below.

[phpzon]slate coffee table, 8, HomeGarden[/phpzon]

Some slate coffee tables will have metal frames formed into a contemporary or modern style, while others will be inlaid into wood for either a traditional or even a rustic southwest style. Whatever your style, you can find a slate coffee table to complement your home's decor.

Positive features that you get with buying slate coffee tables includes a durability that will ensure that the table will last for a long time without being damaged. It is possible to apply some kind of sealant to ensure that the stone is entirely waterproof which will also increase its resistance to staining.

Additionally a slate topped coffee table gives you an interestingly textured surface that can be quite rough, particularly if the table is covered with external tiles or similar.

Because slate is very heavy, the tables themselves will be heavily constructed to hold the weight of the slate. This can make purchasing a slate coffee table online more expensive because of shipping. However, the variety of styles available online compared to most local markets will probably outweigh the cost factor. One benefit to the coffee table being so heavy is that it is also very sturdy, and a well crafted slate coffee table should last a lifetime.

One of the greatest benefits of a slate coffee table is its ease of use. Slate tables do not show fingerprints, the slate does not tend to collect dust, and condensation from glasses will not leave any unsightly rings on your table. Slate is so easy to care for: simply take a damp cloth and wipe down the surface about once a week, the slate will dry on its own and no other care is needed. Your slate coffee table will be the focal point of your living area, and bring you years of pleasure.

Slate coffee tables may be made comprised mainly of slate or it may be a mixture where the slate is inlaid into a wooden or metal frame. Slate is the kind of material that will look particularly attractive when set on top of a hardwood frame.

You can be confident in knowing that when you go out to buy a slate coffee table that you are getting a solid piece of furniture that is not only going to look particularly good in the lounge room but it will last for many years too.

Grommet Drapes Are A Sleek Choice

There is a huge variety of different types of curtains or drape styles to choose from an the ones you end up with will depend very much on your own aesthetic needs. One of the more popular styles of drapes are grommet drapes.

Grommet drapes are made by making eyelet holes near the top of the curtains and inserting metal grommets to finish the edge. The grommets are placed equidistant from each other so the curtain folds are of an even size. It is easy to slide the curtain rod through the grommet holes which makes hanging these curtains a snap. These curtains are ideal for larger windows or to cover up a sliding door for privacy because the grommets slide along the curtain rod for easy opening and closing.

Grommet drapes are a great option for turning traditional curtains sleek and modern. Pleated curtains add volume and folds, and curtains with rod pockets are more structured and fitted to the rod. Grommet drapes combine aspects from both of these traditional curtain types. Grommets are made of metal like the curtain rod, so the curtain is held up with some structured materials, and the curtains gain more folds as they are opened.

[phpzon]grommet drapes, 8, HomeGarden[/phpzon]

Grommet drapes are not always sold with the curtain rod, so it is important to note what the color of the grommets are. If the grommets are made of sleek silver, a coordinating silver curtain rod would be the best match. The drapes can be made of various materials. Silk looks especially nice when they are used with grommets because the traditional fabric is made more modern by the newer hanging design. Silk drapes which were once confined to pleats and fitted curtain rod pockets can be turned loose with grommet drapes.

These types of drapes are good to use in a children's play area within the home because the children can easily slide the windows open at their height without pulling on the fabric or standing on a chair. They can also be used to dress windows which get too much sunlight during the day, or windows which are across from televisions or computer screens. If there is too much sunlight during the afternoon the drapes can be opened in the morning and shut when the sun is streaming in the room, and can also be shut to eliminate glare.

Although the usual way to get grommet drapes is to go out and either buy them ready made from a store or to have them made for you using measurements of the window. However if you are handy with the sewing machine there is not too much involved in making them yourself. The difficult part is inserting the grommets themselves but as long as you proceeded carefully it’s a task that shouldn’t be too onerous.

Grommet drapes are the kind of soft furnishings that appear to be simply designed yet they look good and they serve the purpose they are designed for admirably.

Floral Curtains Can Fill The Room

Floral curtains can be a hit or miss kind of choice and it can all come down to the size of the floral pattern as much as the color that the pattern is in. In the 1970s we went through a period where the bigger the floral print the better we liked it and some of those hibiscus curtains were simply ghastly. But when they are done right, floral curtains can look graceful, beautiful and extremely tasteful.

As a means of subtly bringing out color accents in the rest of the room, nothing can beat a tasteful set of floral curtains. The idea is not necessarily to find floral curtain fabric in which your primary color is featured as the main color. Used as an accent color among a largely black or white background it will help to highlight the same color used in other pieces in the room.

One of the most interesting effects is to place floral print curtains in a room that is otherwise largely bare of patterned design. The various colors in the curtains can then show off the plain pieces used in various parts of the room such as the sofa fabric, the cushions or even the walls. It’s all a matter of balance and being restrained without being boring. Floral curtains can add that bold statement that you’re looking for without compromising the rest of the room.

Not only can floral curtains help to give the room a focal point they can also help to bring the room to life with a splash of color. The mere sight of these curtains can lighten the mood of the room with a fresh feeling of the garden brought indoors.

The danger with the floral design is that it is easy to overdo it. Too many different types of florals in the one room can become too busy with the eye being bombarded by the conflicting patterns and colors. It’s always a good idea to obey the less is more maxim and only choose to hang floral curtains in a more sedate room.

Generally speaking if you are putting floral curtains in the room you are making a conscious effort to use your curtains as a focal point. By their nature they are a busy design that demands attention and for that reason you’ve got to make sure you have chosen your design carefully. If they clash with anything in the room they just won’t be performing the function you want them to.

Voile Curtains Create A Relaxed Mood

In the past the main function of curtains was to provide privacy from the outside and for this reason it was usual to see heavy curtains or drapes that made the room completely dark when they were drawn. These days the privacy issue has not been as urgent and there has been a move towards searching for ways of allowing the light in while also managing to maintain a certain level or privacy. While serving both of these functions it is also desirable to use a curtain fabric that was an attractive addition to the room. The answer is to use curtains made of voile.

The term voile is derived from the French word veil. Voile is made of woven cotton or blended with other materials such as nylon. Voile curtains are very light weight and pretty when they are hung in front of open windows. The breeze through an open window catches the voile and it flutters in the air daintily. Because sheer voile curtains are so moveable and airy voile tab top curtains can be hung for more curtain flexibility. Voile curtains can be given a more elegant and structured look for a more formal space if the voile panel curtains are hung by the curtain pocket from a pole and a matching voile scarf is draped over the top of the pole to finish the look.

Because voile is semi transparent, a good place to hang voile curtains is in a room which gets a lot of sunlight. The voile curtains dress the windows but do not obstruct the sunlight. Because of their semi transparent nature the beauty of voile fabrics is intensified when the light shines through them. Voile curtains can be pulled back using curtain pulls on the sides of the windows and as the fabric gathers it becomes more opaque.

Voile fabrics are used in countries with a warmer climate because the material is so light and they are also used as mosquito netting to block out bugs without insulating a resting person. In the form of mosquito netting, voile fabric usually remains white. However there's much more on offer than simply white voile curtains.

When voile fabrics are used for curtains they can be dyed with any color. Voile curtains are sold in many different colors and they look beautiful in a color which matches the walls. Because the voile curtains are not solid and opaque they do not blend in with the color of the wall. The light shining through the curtains brightens the color of the fabric in some areas and when pleats and gathers form, the color becomes more opaque and concentrated. The look of voile curtains is never consistent as the light moves through them as they move with the breeze.

It’s the movement of voile curtains that can really add a relaxed atmosphere to the home. A lazily fluttering set of curtains in front of a bright kitchen window makes a soft impression that encourages you to sit and enjoy the atmosphere.

There are many different circumstances in which voile curtains are appropriate and can either be used alone as the principal window dressing or in concert with drapes or curtains made of a heavier fabric.

By hanging voile curtains over and around your bed you should be able to create some very attractive looking mosquito netting. This can be made to look even more appropriate for the room if they are hung from a wrought iron frame that has been attached to the ceiling. You might even like to hang colored voile curtains to create a feature of your colored mosquito netting curtains that surround the bed giving it a more ethereal quality.

The Convenience of Automatic Faucets

When your hands are tied up with other matters or you simple don't like the idea of possibly spreading germs around the home, the answer may well be automatic faucets in the bathroom or the kitchen. They used to be the sole realm of commercial locations but they are becoming more of a common sight in domestic locations too. Although they supply a lot more functionality the good news is that installation will not involve any more work than the standard plumbing.

The obvious convenience that you get with automatic faucets is that you don't have to turn the knowbs or handles yourself. This is the most common spread of germs throughout the house and by eliminating the need to touch them it takes that risk out of the equation.

By controlling when they turn off and on merely by the motion in front of the sensor the water wastage is greatly reduced. You can also pre-set the water temperature so that every time you want the water it will be available at a perfect temperature.

The hygienic benefits or autamatic faucets over traditional faucets is quite great too. There have been studies that have shown that the greatest concentration of germs in the home is in sinks and surrounding areas in the home.

From the perspective of how they look it must be said that they fit in well with a wide variety of looks and wil suit a lot of different types of concepts. In a lot of cases they are powered by a long-life battery so there is no need to have the faucet connected up to an external power source.

The result can be a much neater looking bathroom vanity top with no handles sitting on top or coming out of the wall. This also means that the plumbing requirements with respect to extra pipes are reduced with the water regulation being handled by the faucet unit itself.

EON FaucetThe latest design in hands free or automatic faucets is a new type of faucet from Sonoma called the e-ON. This faucet is different from other automatic faucets because it uses electromagnetism in the spout rather than infra-red sensors to start the water flow. This particular faucet is very reminiscent in appearance to a traditional bamboo water spout so it would be suitable for a rustic style bathroom. The fact that there are no faucet handles adds to the rustic charm and appeal.

Whether you are going for a healthy option in choosing an automatic faucet or trying to emulate the older appeal of a traditional looking water spout there is a great deal of convenience that can be attained by installing automatic faucets. Add the water saving benefits that you get through the water flow being cut off automatically when there are no hands around that need washing and you have a very handy device for the bathroom.
