I am not a very “kitchen” person– that’s a confession. But of course, since I am a wife and mom, I have to cook and even bake. Not that I detest doing it– but I have some other favorite household chores that I prefer to cooking.
But just because I am not very fond of cooking does not mean that I don’t have a dream kitchen. I actually do, just like any other mom! I particularly dream of having kitchen countertops minneapolis in my sink. From what I read, marble countertops would be a very wise choice. It has beautiful designs and brilliant color choices, not to mention that marble would surely stand the test of time. Of course, it is more expected to be more expensive than the other countertops available in the market but since it is long lasting and durable, it could actually spare you from repair costs in the long run.
Marbles are stones with very unique colors and hues. In fact, it would be very difficult to find one marble with the exact same hue as another. It is fire and heat resistant, which is a very important characteristic that sets it apart from other countertop materials. Because marble is one strong stone, it makes marble kitchen countertops highly resistant to scratches and breakage.
Next to granite, quartz and marble are also among the most popular choices for kitchen countertops.
It’s pretty widely agreed that so-called Smart TVs are the future of viewing. There’s been a massive push around 3DTVs at Appliances Direct in the UK; especially in the run up to the London 2012 Olympic Games; but the inherent problems with 3D televisions (potential for inducing headaches; astronomical cost of the television set and subscriptions that must be purchased to gain access to any actual 3D TV channels) have meant that the media are looking for the “next big thing” after 3D, even though it’s not fully taken off yet.
The thing is, what makes a TV 3D is pretty obvious – what makes one smart could easily be just a matter of opinion, right? There are some features that all Smart TVs have in common though, but different manufacturers definitely have different ideas about what those features should be; over at Tech Crunch they spoke to the major manufacturers about what constitutes a Smart TV, and what the likes of Samsung and Sony see in the future for Smart TV.
Some critics have argued that the term “smart” doesn’t accurately reflect what these TVs are capable of; sure, they’re capable of connecting you to more services than ever before, not only giving you a wider variety of choice when it comes to viewing options, but also connecting you to a variety of social networking services and making the whole viewing experience a little more social.
What the future holds for Smart TVs that will soon be found at Appliances Direct is a much greater interaction with your TV itself; based on your viewing habits, your TV will be able to suggest new programmes to you that it “thinks” you will enjoy, and will be able to perform functions such as reminding you when a programmes is about to start, and even recording programmes that you usually watch and haven’t turned on.
You might ask what’s with 2013 that we need to prepare our house for. Nothing special, really. We just thought that it would be a good idea to give our house a new look. We are expecting more visitors and family to visit us here in Thailand, so we believe that repainting our walls and buying new cabinets was a good start.
Aside from a dining set, we would also like to buy a ceiling fan. We want to have at least a big one in the living room.
What makes ceiling fans a very practical choice to provide breeze to your home is that most of them already have bulbs to give light to the room. It is dual purpose, and an excellent accessory, too. Since they come in different styles and colors, they would definitely give the house a nicer look. Although these kinds of fans are readily available in shops and stores, it’s still important to go beyond its looks and be picky when buying one.
For starters, pick a ceiling fan that would fit your home’s style. Consider the size and color that would best complement with your walls and house motif.
It is also important to take note of your ceiling height. To be safe, it should be installed at least 7 feet above the floor. Personally, I would like to buy a ceiling fan with a reputable brand. Same thing goes true if I’d buy lighting and locks.
When it comes to buying house fixtures and furniture, I would not mind spending on a more costly kind as long as they would last me longer and that I am ensured of good quality.
The wall repainting is just one tiny step in giving our house that makeover we have always wanted. I am sure our abode would be a lot more beautiful by next Christmas!
