Description

A staircase is a simple and elegant way for people to move betweenfloors. The layout, design and execution by the builder all play apart in determining how safely and comfortably a stair accomplishesthis task. The horizontal distance from the front to back of thetread is called the run, and the vertical distance is the rise. Asyou will have noticed from the staircases you've walked on, therise and run can vary. Rise-to-run ratio. The total of the rise andrun should add up to 17 inches. Practically speaking, this meansthat as the run gets shorter, the rise should get steeper for thestair to feel comfortable as you walk. There are limits, of course.A rise of more than 8¼ inches is going to be too steep for manypeople.Consistency. Even more important, the ratio of rise to runmust be consistent. If you stumble or trip on a staircase, it isprobably due to a tread or riser that is not the same size as theothers. Our bodies get in a rhythm when climbing or descending, andeven an inch of difference can be enough to throw us off. If youare thinking about adding flooring on top of existing flooringwhere it meets a staircase, keep this in mind. The treads may needto be adjusted as well. Another thing that makes a staircomfortable to use is a tread overhang. Although some modernstaircases omit this detail, an overhang will keep heels fromscuffing risers on the way down and help you find your footing onthe way up.Another modern-style detail is to omit the riserentirely. You'll still have a rise, of course (you wouldn't getupstairs without it), but it's just empty space instead of a board.Building a stair this way means you won't be able to hide thesupporting structure of the stair: the stringer. In the stairpictured here, the stringer is made of steel. Most woodenstaircases have two or three wooden stringers, angled lumber withsawtooth cuts where the treads and risers attach. For safety, astair that doesn't have a riser should have a thicker tread, likethe one shown. This reduces the space between treads. Most codeswill not permit an open riser unless the opening is 4 inches orless. Although you'll see stairs that don't follow this rule, achild could crawl through a larger space, so for safety's sake,build to code.Ceiling height. The distance from the highest treadbelow a ceiling should be at least 80 inches, or 6 feet, 8 inches.As a 6-foot-3-inch man who lives in Philadelphia and spends a lotof time in historic homes, I can tell you that this rule wasn'tregularly followed in the time before building codes. Don't makethe same mistake. On the way up, people will bump their heads ifthe ceiling is too low. On the way down, it's hard to judge ceilingheight, so people will duck if it looks too close. Give peopleplenty of room whenever possible. A stair is a dangerous place fora fall, and the codes governing stairs are designed to prevent justthat.Although the tips above are not enough to teach you how tobuild a stair (that's one of the most complicated things acarpenter does), they will help you understand how and why they arelaid out the way the are.

Room Divider Design Ideas 1.0 APK
leksilogi
Beyond simply dividing rooms, room dividers can provide a new lookto a space by adding texture or serving as pieces of art. Besidesserving multiple functions, they can consist of many things. Hereare some ideas for creating your own dividers:The spaciousness ofan open floor plan might not be everything the homeowner dreamedof, especially when it comes to defining different areas of theroom. Thankfully, there are ways around that. Room dividers are afunctional yet beautiful way to break up that huge open space. Bydoing just a bit of research in the beginning, introduce order andfunction in a classy, beautiful, and eclectic manner. 1. UseColumns to Keep an Open FeelColumns are a great way to break up alarge space in an oversized room. They define the area withoutcompletely blocking it off. Columns can either be built in,securely anchored to floor and ceiling, or be freestanding. Theoverall decor of the room itself should determine the style of thecolumns. For example, if the room has a more modern look withangular lines, cubic columns work the best. To divide the spaceeven more, consider a half wall connecting the two columns. Top itwith a slab of granite or marble to complete the look.2. GetCreative with WindowsConsider using a bank of windows for a uniquetwist on a more traditional room divider. Purchase old woodenwood-framed windows and refinish in whatever color or stain wouldfit the decor. For example, whitewashed wood gives the room acrisp, clean look while a darker oak or walnut stain is warm andinviting. Use a chain to hang the windows securely from theceiling. This will create a room divider that lets light throughwhile at the same time defines a seating or dining area. 3.Transform Your Large Kitchen with a Barrier IslandBarrier islandsare room dividers best utilized in a large kitchen and diningspace. When the delineation of the cooking and eating areas of theroom is hard to do, a barrier island is the perfect answer. It issimply a large island that helps direct the flow of traffic aroundthe kitchen work area and into the community seating area. Quiteoften, there are barstools on one side that allow people to sit andchat with the cook. The islands are normally made of wood, butthere are varieties of different materials used to make thetop.Selecting just the right top for a barrier island sets the tonefor the entire room. Weigh the pros and cons of each type ofmaterial prior to making a final decision. 4. Add Privacy withFrosted GlassOne of the more challenging rooms to divide is thebathroom. Quite often, the toilet is placed in such a spot wherethere is little to no privacy. This is where a room divider makesthe perfect addition. A frosted glass room divider works perfectlyin a bathroom, regardless of whether the space is large or small.Simply purchase a pane of frosted glass, large enough to hang fromfloor to ceiling, and position it next to the toilet. Using achrome frame sets the glass off nicely, adding a unique focal pointto the bathroom. 5. Create a Folding Screen for Non-PermanentDivisionFolding screens are one of the more traditional means ofusing room dividers. These come in a variety of different styles,and are easy to modify so they fit right in with the existingdecor. For homeowners who have a knack for do-it-yourself projects,make a folding screen with a few sheets of pinewood, fabricswatches, and paint. Hinge the panels together to make a perfectpartition for any room of the house. How to Buy a Room Divider oneBayeBay has a large selection of room dividers and many greatdeals on them as well. Start out by using either the basic oradvanced search options to search for room dividers. Specify thetype of divider, such as columns or folding screens, as well as thetype of material to narrow the search down even more. Be sure tocheck out the seller's feedback, as this will be a good indicatoras to how trustworthy they are.

Stencil graffiti, wheatpasted poster art or stickerart, pop up art and street installation or sculpture are commonforms of modern street art. Video projection, yarn bombing and LockOn sculpture became popularized at the turn of the 21st century.Theterms "urban art", "guerrilla art", "post-graffiti" and"neo-graffiti" are also sometimes used when referring to artworkcreated in these contexts. Traditional spray-painted graffitiartwork itself is often included in this category, excludingterritorial graffiti or pure vandalism.Artists who choose thestreets as their gallery are often doing so from a preference tocommunicate directly with the public at large, free from perceivedconfines of the formal art world.[3] Street artists sometimespresent socially relevant content infused with esthetic value, toattract attention to a cause or as a form of "artprovocation".Street artists often travel between countries tospread their designs. Some artists have gained cult-followings,media and art world attention, and have gone on to workcommercially in the styles which made their work known on thestreets.Street art is evolving into new and exciting areas ofcreativity.

Enjoy!Clutter is one of the greatestsources of stress in a home space. Adopting a minimalist approachwill not only bring order to your home, it will give it astreamlined and organized appeal. Though you may need to first gothrough your home to purge items that you don't use or wantanymore, the result is a stress-less home environment. "Conceal asmuch stuff as you can behind cabinets, or in a series of tastefulboxes or baskets.Lots of colors and designs can appear busy andeven give the feel that your walls and furniture are a cacophonyrather than comfortable living space. Choose a single color orcolor theme to bring minimalist harmony to your home. "If you havea monochromatic space and are using one dominant color on all keypieces of furniture, it's important to alter textures within thecolor for contrast and interest,". "If you have more than onecolor, stick to your color story and don't vary from it. Repeat itthroughout the space to tie everything together for a cohesive,consistent palette.""Balance is very important to pay attention toin minimalist design," explains Moreau. "Arrange pillows, artworkor lamps in flanking pairs or asymmetrically to one side." Thiswill make a big difference in how you perceive the space if theplacement of items builds off each group through balance orjuxtaposition. If this concept is hard to grasp, consult aninterior designer or do an Internet search for "minimalist homedecorating" or "minimalism" for specific decorating ideas.Love yoursofa? Make it the center of attention in your living room. "Alwayshave a focal point, such as a centrally placed piece of furniture,from which every other element radiates out," Moreau says. Tofollow the minimalist principle, the interior designer recommendsthinking of your room as a grid and being aware of the vertical andhorizontal lines you are introducing within it with furniture,objects, art, color, etc. "The understated control of this elementcan be very powerful."
Bunk Bed Ideas 1.0 APK
leksilogi
The first factor that you need to consider while making a bunk bedis its purpose, i.e., you need to consider the person who is goingto use it. The age of the person also matters, as several aspectsof the plan such as the dimensions, structure, and the utilitiesand fixtures that are to be attached to the bed depends on theperson. While sketching the plans, you will also need to considersome other aspects such as material that you are going to use andthe frame of the bed that you are going to construct. Here are someplans that you may consider before having a bed for your lovedone.The 'table under the bed', is not exactly new one. It isusually used for space management. As the name implies, the tableis placed under the level of bunk bed. It is usually suitable tobuild these type of beds in rooms that have high ceilings and largewindows, as sleeping on the bunk, and having a congested atmosphereproves to be uncomfortable. The appropriate choice of material iswood. Maple or teak in a polished form with an accompaniment ofplywood works wonders.A bunk bed does not mean that you need tohave only 'beds' in such types of furniture; you can be creativeand churn out some excellent plans with the help of storage spaces.You may employ some innovative means to do so, such as making a setof drawers within the bed. You may also have a small chambercupboard on each bunk. This might increase the cost a bit, but onthe positive side, you will get more storage space. The spacebeneath the lower bunk is often employed for the purpose of makingstorage spaces. At times, it is used to make pullout drawers. Thisspace can also be utilized to make an additional pullout bed.Thereare multiple ways in which the actual platforms are constructed.The common is one bed over the other, with two planes parallel toeach other. Sometimes people also use triple bunk beds, which canalso become an additional storage space. Some of them also haveperpendicularly placed bed platforms. Such plans are however,applicable only for large-sized rooms.The last plan is the creativestructuring of the entire furniture. Bunk beds with stairs havebecome very common. However, there are some wacky ideas likeshaping the entire structure like a cruise ship. Some make it inthe shape of an aircraft carrier too. Alternatively, for littlegirls, you can shape the entire furniture like a doll house or afairy tale palace.The best thing that you can do is talk with yourkids. This always proves to be advantageous, as your kids willdefinitely have their own ideas and inputs about the design inorder to make their bed special.Read more at Buzzle:http://www.buzzle.com/articles/bunk-bed-plans.html
