Dressing Up Shower alexander mcqueen jewelry Curtain Rods

Dressing Up Shower Curtain Rods If you are on a tight decorating budget, or just
like getting really creative, then you may want to consider using shower curtain
rods in more places than the bathroom. Sure these rods are functional. They do
hold up the all important shower curtain liner that keeps water in the shower
and off the bathroom floor. But shower curtain rods also make great decorative
poles in other room of the house.Some of the Most Unusual Place to Hang a
RodShower curtain rods can be purchased for just a few dollars but look like a
million bucks when used in some creative places around the house. It�s the kind
of home improvement project a struggling college student can use or the most
sophisticated decorator and still have a great new look.In the bedroom: Drapery
fabric or curtains are a great way to hide an unattractive wall or cover closets
where doors just don�t work. The pressure style rods simply twist to the right
size and are held in place by pressure. One consideration with this type of rod
is that it cannot usually support very heavy drapes. If you are using velvet for
example, you would probably need a rod that is mounted with good drywall
screws.Another creative place to use shower curtain rods in the bedroom is by
suspending a couple from the ceiling above the bed. Sheer fabric can drape
across both rods with a dip in the centre and then the fabric can cascade down
the wall at the head of the bed. Not only have you created a romantic canopy,
but you will also have a soft fabric headboard as a backdrop to decorative
pillows.In the Kitchen: A pantry area can be curtained off by using a shower
curtain rod and some lightweight kitchen print fabric. This can be coordinated
with caf� curtains on the windows and all of the table linens.In the Sunroom:
What to do with a sunroom that gets too hot? Most sunrooms are vented to control
temperature, but it can still heat up the connecting rooms in the house when too
much sun comes in. You can use a pressure shower curtain rod at either end of
the overhead windows in a sunroom. Then stitch a pocket �� wider than the pole�s
diameter into which the poles slip. When you hang the rods the fabric can be
taut or drape slightly. Either way you have diffused the sunlight just enough to
control the room�s temperature.Shower Curtain Rods for the BathroomThe latest
decorating trends have taken the mundane out of bathrooms If you are looking for
a necklace that combines elegance with edge, then take a look at alexander mcqueen jewelry and it
might just pass your criterions.. There are s-shaped rods that make an old
fashioned claw foot tub able to support a shower spray. Also, there are new
designs in rods that suspend them from chains so that they appear to float from
the ceiling. You can dress up shower curtain rods by choosing fun coordinating
colours or attaching the curtains with interesting ribbons or clips. It doesn�t
have to be just a plastic ring through a button hole.The ideas are endless and
only limited by imagination and creativity. Spend some time looking through
decorating catalogues and you will see that whenever there is an expensive rod
used to hold up fabric, a shower curtain rod may do the job just as well, but
for a whole lot less money.

Cleaning Laminate Flooring � What�s Best by vente isabel marant Richard Keech

Cleaning Laminate Flooring � What�s Best by Richard Keech
One of the great advantages that laminate flooring has over other types of flooring is how easy it is to keep clean. Once installed, the after care that laminate flooring requires is very little and extremely simple, and if it is carried out regularly, your floor can be kept looking like new for many years to come.

Generally speaking a simply brush over with a soft headed brush or a very slightly damp mop, is all that is needed when cleaning laminate flooring huanghaiyan118. Follow this with the use of a vacuum cleaner around the edges of the room, and also around any larger pieces of furniture that cannot be moved, and that is all that is generally required.

Special cleaning pads are available which look very much like a mop, and have replaceable wipes that wrap around the pad which attracts the dust, etc. These make cleaning laminate flooring even easier but can become expensive.

When using a damp mop to clean the laminate, do not use to much water. Make sure you only use enough water to make the mop damp so that it holds the dust, etc., do not soak the floor, as this could cause the edges of the laminate boards to start to expand and the whole floor may start to buckle vente isabel marant.

For stain removal, do not use a strong detergent. Firstly, try using just warm water, but again, only use enough for removal of the stain in the small local area. In other words � don�t over-wet the area. If this doesn�t seem to work then try using a mild, non-abrasive cleaner. For cleaning of larger stains, etc. on laminate flooring, use a mop with ammonia or a mixture of water and vinegar.

Where ever possible try to use citrus-based cleaners, and not the conventional soap-based cleaners. When trying a cleaning product for the first time always test on an area of laminate flooring that is out of sight, such as under the cooker or fridge for example. Once you�ve tested the new product, leave this small area for 30 minute�s just to be certain that there are no adverse effects to the laminate surface.

When trying to clean laminate flooring do not use steel wool, sand paper, or scouring powder on the laminate surface, as these will quickly break down the laminate and lead to very early failure of the flooring. Also never try to sand, wax, or apply lacquer to the laminate flooring.

Try to always use a door mat at every exterior doorway. This will help to trap any dirt etc., and also trap small stones and grit which may easily scratch the surface of your laminate flooring. To avoid any marks that could potentially be left by furniture, always use felt pads under the furniture legs, or castor cups under any furniture wheels.

Always read the manufacturer�s "care" instructions that come with your flooring, and adhere to them. It is important that the correct installation and after care procedure�s are followed so that any manufacturer warranties are valid.

By following the manufacturer�s instructions and these supplementary tips on cleaning laminate flooring, your floor should look as good as the day it was installed, for many years to come <
