The Striking Oval Coffee Table

The coffee table is going to become a centerpiece in the lounge room thanks to where it is going to be situated. For that reason you should think about going for something a little on the unusual side rather than the standard rectangular coffee table.

An oval coffee table is the type of piece that would be suitably placed in front of a long couch due to its extended length. Oval coffee tables are pieces of furniture that should be added to rooms in which elements of curving lines are already incorporated in the room because furniture tends to look better as a set. A living area or sitting area with square backed chairs and rectangular couch cushions would look more coordinated with a square or rectangular coffee table. Though an oval coffee table would look out of place in that setting, it would look more suited to the room if surrounding the table was an antique love seat with a curved back and they were both placed on a circular or ovular carpet.

Rooms with antique furniture look especially nice when a marble topped oval table is incorporated into the room. A decorator for a traditional room with curving lines can find an antique wooden coffee table of an ovular shape. There are some nice combinations available and you can really appreciate the thought that has gone behind something like oval glass coffee table tops with brass bases. These types of tables look beautiful in light filled rooms with flowing organic lines. The glass top oval coffee table is beautiful when placed upon an oval carpet because the carpet can be seen through the transparent glass top.

There are a number of oval coffee tables for sale that are definitely worth examining more closely.

Another statement that can be made with one of these pieces is if you were to buy a black oval coffee table. Again, this type of piece would make a definite statement, able to either match the existing décor or make a stark contrast. Either of these can be a very good thing.

It is important that the oval coffee table is incorporated into the design of the room and it is equally important to complement the table with other round and oval objects. An ovular tray or dish made of silver would look excellent on a wooden or glass table. Add an element of modern to an antique room with a marble table by hanging some sort of kinetic sculpture directly above the table.

A common feature with many oval coffee tables is that they are often built as multi-functional units, designed to contain quite and appreciable amount of storage. The shape and the materials in which they are made finds them in use as a repository for all manner of objects.

Round and oval mirrors are an excellent complement to oval coffee tables, as are pictures of round and oval things. Round objects like globes remind someone who is sitting in the room of the different aspects of a sphere and circle, and how it can be stretched to create an oval.

Gingham Curtains – The Country Look

Decorating with curtains is largely a matter of taste but sometimes the curtains can almost choose themselves. If you have already made the decision that your home is going to have a rustic, country or farmhouse flavor there is one word that nearly always comes straight to mind – gingham.

Gingham fabric has been around a long time. Traditionally, it was identified by the red and white checked pattern of the cotton fabric from which is was made. Today, gingham is available in a broad range of colors and is used widely for curtains, linens, decorative design for crockery and even shoes. No picnic was complete without a red and white gingham tablecloth and napkins. Gingham curtains create an instant country look in provincial or "old farmhouse" styles. Gingham curtains are as whimsical as they are colorful. The pattern can be arranged in small or larger sizes on fabric. Mostly, the smaller checked pattern is preferred.

Gingham CurtainsCreating a Gingham Window Treatment

Gingham curtains look good in any season of the year in just about any room in the house, including the living room. Choose bright gingham curtains for the kitchen and a more subdued gingham color for bedrooms. In modern or country decor for the living room, select long gingham curtain panels to bring out the overall color theme. Another appealing window treatment is to choose window shades in a solid color that is the predominant color of the gingham curtains.

When you go looking for a set of these kinds of curtains you will realize that they are made in a rough and durable cotton fabric that has been woven with fine to medium sized threads. Although the threads are on the fine side, the texture is very similar to yarn which gives it a tendency to feel a little stiff.

Get Busy, Get Gingham

Gingham is considered a "busy" pattern. This means that the remaining decor should be understated so that your gingham curtains receive the full thrust of attention. It isn't advisable to use gingham curtains on windows in a room with patterned wall paper unless the wallpaper is designed to withstand the pressure of the happy gingham colors of your curtains.
Gingham curtains make a bold statement and yet, they have a very quaint, very comfortable appeal. Try gingham curtains in pale yellow, delicate pink or baby blue. For bathroom curtains, this is a good choice.

Err on the side of caution when installing these curtains and plan around the gingham design. Add touches of other solid colors generously to give the room balance and eye appeal. Choose the traditional red and white gingham checked curtains, add splashes of red, lots of background white and dollups of dark green to accessorize and wake up a room.

Cafe Curtains For the Kitchen

Café curtains are a compromise of sorts between letting the light in while maintaining a level of privacy from the outside world. They cover the bottom half of a window while the top half remains uncovered. They are fashioned from the look that was common in cafes and eateries, thus where the name originated.

Because of the desire with café curtains to let in as much of the sunlight as possible, it is common to find café curtains made of thin or sheer materials. Sheer café curtains are the perfect example of a kind of curtain that will allow a certain amount of light into the room while giving you a little bit of privacy. These types of curtains, such as voile curtains, are also particularly attractive and give the room a cozy charm and elegance while still remaining casual.

For full privacy it is not uncommon to find café curtains hung in front of a full set of curtains giving you the best of both worlds. When you want the light and privacy balance you would draw back the full curtains and then, at night you can give yourself full privacy by drawing them closed again.

[phpzon]cafe curtains, 8, HomeGarden[/phpzon]

Another common name for these types of curtains is kitchen café curtains because they are ideal for dressing a kitchen window. The kitchen is one of the rooms in the house where it is important to get as much natural light as you possibly can. Café curtains fulfill this need by covering up the bottom half of your window while still getting access to the sun up the top.

A breakfast room is also the ideal setting for café curtains. This type of room usually faces the east so that the morning sun hits the room casting natural light upon those having their morning meal. Creating the perfect mood for this type of setting is a set of linen café curtains.

There is no set rule as to what material café curtains are made from, although the usual type of fabric is a light material that lets a measure of the light through. I think we would all have seen a set of lace café curtain at some point and would agree that they create a definite charm while blowing in a gentle breeze.

Giving a more country style feeling is toile, a type of pattern that is very popular in this setting and makes a definite statement. Café curtains with matching or even offsetting toile valance above will certainly enhance the appearance of any kitchen.

Café curtains really give a sunny room a comfortable and breezy feeling, inviting guests in to sit down and enjoy a quiet cup of tea or coffee.

Why Buy An Automatic Faucet?

Once typically seen only in commercial applications, automatic faucets are now becoming more and more popular for residential use as well. They fit into the designs present in many of today’s homes, and automatic faucets offer several benefits that traditional home faucets do not. Automatic faucets are available for use in bathrooms as well as kitchens, and the installation process is no more difficult than that for traditional faucet fixtures.

Automatic faucets have become standard in public restrooms because they are convenient and easy to use. Why not experience the same convenience at home? They work simply by waving your hand in front of or underneath a sensor, depending upon the model you have. The water begins flowing automatically, and it also shuts off automatically - reducing waste. The ease of use is also great for getting young children to wash their hands. As an added benefit, most models allow you to set the water temperature. This makes hand washing much safer because the risk of scalding can be reduced or eliminated.

Sloan Automatic FaucetHands-free automatic faucets offer many hygienic benefits when compared to traditional faucets. Studies have shown that there are more germs present in sinks and their surrounding areas than in many other areas of the home. With an automatic faucet, there is no longer any need to come in contact with nasty germs and bacteria present around the sink. Homeowners are able to wash their hands without needing to touch the faucet afterwards to turn the water off.

From a design perspective, automatic faucets are extremely attractive. They are available in several different designs and styles, and they fit in well in any design style. Because there are so many different styles available, you can find an automatic faucet that fits into modern, contemporary homes as well as in more traditional styles. They are available in a variety of finishes as well, making them a perfect match in any home. Most models are powered by a long-lasting battery rather than needing electricity. Because of the lack of wires or power cords, they fit seamlessly into any bathroom or kitchen.

Toto Automatic FaucetManufacturers of automatic faucets include Kohler, Zurn, Toto and Sloan and each make a line of sleek and efficient products.

For example, the Toto line of EcoPower products provides the hands-free technology over a wide range of products in shiny chrome plating that will appeal to many people.

Kohler Automatic FaucetOne of the things that the Kohler company emphasizes strongly is the need to conserve water and has a lot of water saving tips on its website. One of the methods you can save water is by using the company’s touchless faucets. As well as looking particularly stylish, these faucets come with a range of features apart from simply being automatic. They are equipped with built-in aerators to give you substantial water savings right off the bat. Some of the faucets also come with a temperature mixer so you don’t have to waste water getting the temperature right.

In all cases, there is a lot of technology going into the automatic faucets that are being produced. Hygiene is a significant consideration that is driving their manufacture and sales, but the broader impact on our environment cannot be underestimated either.

Swag Curtains For Mood

There is nothing that completes a room like a window treatment. It finishes off the window and gives your space a warm, welcoming ambiance.

A simple but extremely effective method of dressing up a window is with a swag curtain. Swag window treatments are widely used because of their versatility, and based on the particular swag style can reflect either a traditional or contemporary look that will fit any décor.

You will find that swag curtains are made in a variety of different styles that are ruled by a matter of personal taste. The traditional swag curtain design will have the hem in the middle of the curtain much shorter than it is on the sides and they usually run the length of the window. A style that is very frequently seen is the fishtail swag curtain which is a very simple design that involves draping the curtains over the end of the curtain rod.

The type of swag depends on what size and style window you are planning to treat. Swags can be used on anything from a small 36" single window to a dramatic, wall of windows. Swags are usually either draped over a decorative pole with finials at the end, or if custom made, can be stapled to a board for more of a casual appearance. Swags can also be purchased at certain department stores or from custom made by designers. Custom made swags often include interlining, which gives them a rich appearance, and will also cause them to wear better over a long period of time.

Here are some types of swag curtains to choose from where you can find more information.

For a traditional look, an over the pole swag with jabots is perfect. If you have higher windows or a larger space, another option is to add panels underneath the jabots. Swags and panels are a perfect choice for a formal living room or dining room. They provide a perfect framing effect that embodies the richness of the room.

If you prefer a casual look, swags over a pole can also be used. Consider the finish of the pole and the finials--these can range from dark, formal woods or metals to light colored casual wood or small metal rods. A swag curtain on a board also provides a less formal look or if you want to dress them up a little, they may be pulled through decorative sconces.

If contemporary is your style, there are several kinds of swags that will blend in your space. Using a swag with only one jabot is a great style for two single windows that are side by side. Keep in mind the material and trim used on the swag also gives it different looks. There are some swag curtains that come to a point rather than curve at the bottom, and these are also often used in contemporary rooms.

Dress up the curtains in your living room by installing a set of fishtail swag living room curtains. They can give the living room a much more formal appearance and, as a result, might turn the room into a more formal space.

The way in which a swag curtain is created is to drape the fabric over curtain rods. The reason for doing so is largely for the dramatic effect it will have on the room. A fishtail swag is used as a way of accentuating other window treatment solutions such as blinds or surrounding curtains. It can help to make the window look more formally dressed.

Trims can also be considered on swags. For a formal treatment, swags can be trimmed in bullion, tassel fringe, or beads. However you dress them up or down swags are a great addition to any room and a custom look can be achieved to fit your personal decor.

Now comes the part where the interior designer in you gets to flex the creative muscles and make the significant decisions that will set the mood for the room. It’s one thing to choose to put up eyelet curtains, but deciding exactly what type of eyelet curtains to use is the difficult part.

Styles Of Eyelet Curtains

Here are some different styles of eyelet curtains that you can choose from depending on your existing décor. Failing that, you might be inspired by something below and it will help you to choose the new style that you have been searching for, for some time.

Due to the fact that eyelet curtains are so easy-running along the curtain rod, they can be manufactured into dividing panels quite simply. These types of curtains may be used to break up a room in a commercial situation, say, in a restaurant or similar location. They are simple to use when you want to close a part of a room or open it back up again. It may also be a popular choice because of the clean, streamlined look it gives the curtain panels.

Pleated eyelet curtains are the standard look that you get due to the way in which the fabric is threaded onto the curtain rod. It forms a natural linear pleat that looks very geometric and organized. In this setting a silk curtain makes a truly wonderful geometric design.

A two-layered curtain is also effective in this style with a linen front backed with a sheer fabric such as voile. The effect is very breezy, especially when the window has been left slightly open and a breeze captures the voile.

Eyelet curtain café curtains makes for a fun mood to be created. You will expect to use this type of style in a sunroom or the breakfast room or dining room, particularly if it is facing the east. You would generally use a light flowing fabric that will catch the early day’s breeze. Something like lace or a gauzy voile would do nicely.

Eyelet curtains will look just as effective made from deeper, heavier fabrics such as suede or velvet. The advice is to generally use lighter fabrics when making eyelet curtains because the extra weight will put stress on the eyelets which may affect the opening and closing process. But these heavy fabrics look particularly impressive in a darker room that is a little more stately and austere.

You can use eyelet curtains with matching tiebacks, they can be used in conjunction with a valance with the eyelets hidden from immediate view. Eyelet curtains also make attractive side pieces that can be pulled across into the middle of the window as an attractive overlay piece.

Installing An Undermount Sink

An undermount sink can be a beautiful choice for the home. These are the sinks that are underneath the countertop so you don’t see the lip of the sink. It’s a style that highlights the beauty of the countertop giving the edges a sharp, clean appearance. These sorts of sinks can really set countertops made of marble, stone and granite extremely well.

The nature of the undermount sink means that the surrounding countertop is easy to keep clean. You can simply sweep crumbs straight into the sink without having to worry about them becoming caught on the lip of the sink.

The sink needs to be installed properly for it to be leak-free. It can last for decades without one leak. The undermount sink should be installed using silicone caulk and very strong epoxies. Then they stay in place with metal anchors that are attached to the underside by glue.

To install the undermount sink, it is best to have a professional actually cut the hole. It should be noted that undermounted sinks should only be installed under a solid surface, a countertop made of wood or a laminate finish would constantly run the risk of getting wet and this would lead to water damage. For this reason specialist stone cutters would be needed to perform the job of cutting the hole for the sink, something that is best left to the experts.

Use the silicone caulking around the hole just cut and then position the sink in its’ proper place. Then the screws should be tightened. Any caulking should be wiped off if it oozes out.

This is the best time for have the faucet holes drilled while working with the underside of the sink. Then turn everything over and attach it to the base counter. The manufacturer's directions should be followed if screws, clips or adhesives are needed.

Now that the sink is where you want it, the drain needs to be installed next. Plumber's putty should be used on the bottom of the drain and then needs to be pushed into the drain opening. Tighten the lock nut to hold it in place.

The undermount sink project should be put on hold overnight to let the putty and caulking set up. The next day you can attach the water supply lines to the faucet stems. Now the S trap and drainpipe should be attached to the bottom of the sink and drainpipe.

The undermount sink is ready for use, and is an attractive addition to the home. When the water is turned on, there should be a good check for leaks. If there aren't any, then the job is done.

The undermount sinks come in a single, double or even triple bowl style, so there are many choices for that special look in the kitchen. They are also available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. You’re not going to be limited simply because you want the clean lines of a sink hidden below the level of the countertop.
