Giving Your Home a New Look

Giving Your Home a New Look
Giving Your Home a New Look

It’s hard for an avid gardener to put down their spade come winter. That’s why so many choose to garden year-round.

Whether it is wintering expensive outdoor annuals inside your home, investing in a small greenhouse or growing miniature indoor gardens on window ledges and in special containers, there are many ways to continue gardening all year.

Growing plants and flowers, both indoors and outdoors, adds an element of beauty to your yard and home that can be very satisfying. It’s also profitable. Well-placed trees, shrubs, flowering plants and an attractive lawn can increase the value of your property by as much as 10 per cent.

A greenhouse or solarium, or miniature indoor gardens that allow you to garden year-round, also add beauty and value to your home. A greenhouse, in fact, can be therapeutic. Not only can you watch flowers bloom and harvest vegetables and herbs 365 days a year, you can work the soil and tend to it regardless of weather conditions.

So, if you don’t want to give up the spade this fall, begin to consider the following options now.

Bringing your fancy annuals indoors
In addition to the inexpensive annuals such as the impatiens and petunias most of us plant to add colour to our gardens, you could consider investing in more expensive but interesting and hardier annuals.

It is well worth the extra investment because most of the more expensive annuals will winter quite well inside your home, adding colour and brightness to those dull, dreary winter days. Plants that perform well over the winter include hibiscus, lantana, Mexican heather, passion flower, lithodora, the Mandevilla hybrid, geraniums and others available in spring at most garden centres.

After enjoying their beauty all summer long, cut them back before the first frost in fall, pot and place them in a bright spot indoors until the following spring when you can slowly re-introduce them to the outdoors. Don’t forget to include some herbs such as rosemary, which stay well indoors over the winter, too. Don’t expect the plant tags to tell you these plants thrive for more than one summer, though.

Invest in a greenhouse
A greenhouse can be the key to year-round gardening for many avid gardeners. There are many greenhouse models on the market today, in varying sizes and prices to choose from. You can build your own, buy prefabricated kits which must be assembled or have one custom-built for your home.

Greenhouse gardening requires plenty of sunlight. So choose the location carefully and consider the possibility of future expansion when deciding on the size. Greenhouses require fans, heaters, vents, sprinklers and shelving units. A variety of glazing materials are used to promote thermal efficiency, including glass, acrylic, film and polycarbonate. These materials can increase the rate of plant growth by as much as 50 per cent.

A greenhouse can be an avid gardener’s dream come true. You can grow exotic plants and vegetables, experiment with new gardening techniques and experience the warmth of a summer garden on the coldest of winter days.

Creating an indoor garden
Greening your home with indoor plants is fun and a bargain compared to filling up and brightening spaces using furniture and other decorative techniques. You can hang them from the ceiling, set them on tables and other furniture pieces, perch them on window sills, prop them in empty comers – the possibilities are endless.

Don’t settle for just simple houseplants. There are many varieties of plants to choose from, including dwarf trees that can easily raise a crop of grapefruits, lemons or oranges right in your living room – but you should expect a three to five year wait for the first fruit to develop.

If you don’t have a big home or big ideas about indoor gardening, miniature house plants can be very cheerful and great decorators. Because they occupy less space, you can also grow more of them and in greater variety. Dwarf geraniums will do well on a narrow window sill.

Windows can be the best places to decorate with a living garden, as long as all the plants are not haphazardly arranged. It should be an artistic composition, an arrangement of plants and containers that create an attractive, refreshing and charming effect.

Improving the “look” of your home can not only make it more attractive and comfortable but it may also increase the market value of the property.

The wisest improvements in any home are those that bring it up to the standards of other properties in the immediate area. If most properties have garages or carports, central air and fireplaces, these are well-worth adding. Other good improvements that enhance the exterior of your home are adding terraces, wooden decks and fences that increase privacy. Shade trees, shrubs and landscaping that is easy to keep up also add value.

Very specialized improvements, unless strictly for your own enjoyment, are not a good idea because the money spent may not be returned through added value. Saunas, home gyms, green houses and dark rooms are examples of personalized improvements that have limited demand and, as a result, little added value.

Making your home more attractive doesn’t always require major improvements, changing the colour scheme, repainting, paneling, hanging new wall coverings and installing new lighting and flooring can help give your home the facelift it needs without breaking your budget.

Take stock

Before you begin any improvements, take stock of what you have. Try tow work any new colour schemes withing the furnishings you want to keep. For continuity and to create spaciousness, maintain the same colour scheme through the living areas of the home, varying only the accent colour from room to room. Also stick to one style, whether traditional or contemporary. Personal spaces such as bedrooms and bathrooms can depart from the overall style and theme.

Get free advice

While planning your home’s facelift, take advantage of free advice available from paint stores, wallpaper outlets, fabric shops, picture framers, furniture and craft stores. Take home samples whenever you can and take your time. Scale, size and colour are dramatically different in a store setting. Samples may appear completely different in your home

Paint it all

When it comes to home decorating, colour is your best friend. Colours can visually enlarge or reduce the size of a room; heighten or lower a ceiling. And there is nothing that comes in more colours than paint One of the best ways to update your home on a tight budget is to use paint Paint can transfer dated cupboards and vanities to.

Maintenance and Ways to Prevent Sewage Blockages in Your Home

Ways to Prevent Sewage Blockage At Your Home
Ways to Prevent Sewage Blockage At Your Home

As home ownership in Singapore is increasing, home maintenace becomes one of the hot topics that are discussed among home owners and recently, the maintenance of household flushing and pipes is one of the key considerations. One of the most frustrating plumbing problems for homeowners is a backed up sewer drain. It’s also one of the most essential problems to fix, to keep a household running smoothly.

Even many homeowners in Singapore thinks so. Those working in the plumbing industry are part of the “Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce,” as established during the outbreak of COVID-19, which clarifies just how important plumbing is to keeping our communities well-maintained and safe during an emergency.

A backed up sewer doesn’t always have to be an emergency, though. They say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Once you know a few of the common causes of sewer backups you can help keep them from happening with preventative measures, employ a few quick fixes yourself or know when to call in a professional.
Clogs

If you notice it’s taking longer for water to drain from your sink or you’re hearing gurgling noises when you flush the toilet, these abnormal functions could signal the start of a clogged drain.

Clogs develop over time and are caused when something blocks the free flow of liquid out of a drain pipe, which can impact the plumbing throughout your entire home. This will affect the proper functioning of sinks, toilets, showers, bathtubs, dishwashers, washing machines and even sprinkler systems. If the clog is severe, raw sewage could push back into your drainpipes and up into your plumbing fixtures from the septic tank or the main sewer lines. It could get messy.

In our experience, drain clogs can be caused by a build-up of common objects such as:

  • Hardened grease
  • Hair
  • Feminine hygiene products and baby wipes
  • Extra-thick toilet paper, paper towels, napkins and facial tissues
  • Dental floss and cotton swabs
  • Products labeled non-flushable

Keep in mind sewer pipes are about six inches in diameter, so it takes a lot of material build-up to clog them. When in doubt, just don’t throw it down the drain. Place it in the garbage.

Root invasion occurs when tree and plant roots infiltrate your sewage system, growing right through plumbing pipes or wrapping around and crushing them, in search of the water that flows inside.

This also happens over time and could speed up if your pipes are in poor condition, with cracks or holes that allow the roots to enter the drain.

To mitigate tree or plant roots from causing damage to your sewer pipes, plan for a tree’s root growth when deciding where to plant new trees on your property.
Blockages of the Main Sewer Line

A blockage of your sewer main happens in the piping system that is owned and maintained by your city, town or district.

The blockage can be caused by a clog similar to a household clog. It can also be caused by inadequate system capacity, if the area where you live is experiencing heavy growth. This type of problem becomes evident if a community had problems with the sewers after heavy rainfall.

A sewer main blockage will affect most or all of your plumbing in the entire house simultaneously, rather than affecting just one drain. To minimize damage, shut off all water supplies of your house and try to cover drain openings with material that can soak up liquid.

Quick Fixes for Sewer Backups

Use a Plunger – the easiest and most available drain opener around. For small to medium-sized clogs, plungers do quick work on most any drain, including toilets and sinks.

Buy a Liquid Drain Cleaner – to unclog a sink or bathtub. Do not use them on toilets, though.

Liquid drain cleaners will eat through a toilet’s wax seal on the bottom of the toilet and cause leaks.

Release Pressure – by turning off the water at the main supply first. Find your sewer cleanout line in your yard. It’s a short, white pipe three to four inches round and sealed with a screw-on cap. Once you’ve removed the cap, the pressure in the sewer line should release, forcing any water that has backed up into your home to drain.

Chemical Drain Cleaning – help with tree roots blockages. Some recommend repeated flushing of copper sulfate down the toilet to kill tree roots, but copper sulfate is not safe for septic systems and some municipalities prohibit its use. Try flushing a root-killing foam containing the herbicide dichlobenil down your toilet. The foam sticks to the pipes and kills the tree roots within a few hours. However, it still may take a few months for dead roots to be completely flushed from your sewage system.

Auger or Water Jet Cleaning – will help clear medium to severely clogged drains. An auger cuts through clogs further down the pipe. A high-pressure water jet blow plant roots and other debris down the sewer line.

Having been convinced by the brochures and the eventual visit to see the showflat, it is usually tempting to sign the sale agreement right away.

This will help you select between various available condos.
5.    Make a Choice of the Unit you Desire
It is important that you look at the developments floor plans and get detailed information of how the flats will look like. Make your choice regarding accessibility to communal spaces, or window placements. You will have a chance at selecting the condo that will meet your tastes and preference.

Since most of these showflats will be flooded by potential buyers, you would want to stick into the queue, and not lose your spot in the quest to find water or something to eat. You also do not want your phone to die on you as you may need it to call your knowledgeable friend for advice.
5. View the Critical Aspects of the Showflat
It is important that you visualize the actual room size, whereby you could do this by blocking mirrors which might exaggerate the size of a room. Visualize all the rooms and how they will fit into your world and all what you require. Confirm that all areas of the house are well illuminated. Confirm with the agents as to which appliances will be included in the final condo.
6. Analyze Alternative Payment Schemes Carefully
Some alternative payment schemes that will be offered to you are much complex for one to comprehend easily. This could end up being costly on your repayment. You should not rush to sign anything before you fully understand what it entails. Compare various options and get the best suited for you.
7. Get Timeout Before Signing
It is important that you only sign the sale agreement when you fully feel comfortable. You can take this precious time to think over your decisions, and have another look at the showflat. This will help you get further insights that may give you a better understanding of what you are getting into.
