The LED lights you choose to put on your emergency vehicle will need to endure some tough conditions. They will need to keep you safe, help you with controlling traffic, and announce your presence to other drivers. These lights need to be powerful and practical. Choosing these lights correctly the first time will prevent costly mistakes in the future.
Do you enjoy camping or other outdoor activities in the fall? As the temperatures cool down and leaves begin to change color, many people feel the desire to be outside and enjoy the weather. Camping presents some challenges if you’re looking for that last doughnut in the dark. Nobody wants to be stuck knowing there’s a doughnut to eat but they can’t find it.
Every home has a bookshelf. Some are stuffed to the brim with paperback and hardback spines and some are housing picture frames full of family smiles. Whatever your bookshelf holds, you can be certain that the shelf above is keeping the items below in the dark.The solution here is simple. A mounted light bar. The obvious lighting choice is LED, especially with all of the energy and money saving benefits. (link benefits article here) I say the solution was simple because it was. After an easy installation/mounting of the LED light under the shelf I was quickly in the business of seeing the dark corners of the shelves I’d never seen.
There I was stranded in my hallway with a laundry at my feet on one side, the cat on the other, and the light bulb burned out. How could I possibly see to move? I turned my body from one way to the other looking for some way to see in this dark cave of a hallway. There was no light to be found. I needed emergency light and I needed it then.
Most days it feels like we are on the go-go-go! There is no time to stop and smell the roses, let alone cooking dinner. That’s why the holidays are so special. It’s a time where we get to slow down and gather around with family. Popular media likes to show us two competing pictures: one is family bliss with everyone sitting around the fire; the other is the modern dysfunctional family where everyone is at each other’s throat around the dinner table. We all know that the truth is somewhere in between.
Bedrooms aren’t usually the first thing that comes to mind when renovating your living environment. For most of us, we do not spend much time in our bedroom. We think of it merely as a place to sleep. However, we do know that our sleep environment is crucial to our ability to sleep well.
It’s good to use neutral colors in the bedroom. These colors help to create a soothing and calming environment. Additionally, it makes it easier to add accent colors with pillows, chairs and other pieces of furniture and art work throughout. Over the past few years, designers have increased their use of grays as a neutral color, but I still prefer beige for the bedroom.
Headboards can make for excellent focal points. If money is tight, these can be easily made using reclaimed wood. An alternative to reclaimed wood (especially if you can’t find any near by) is to buy 2”x4”s at your local hardware store and distress it yourself. Adding wall sconces with an LED light will add texture to your headboard.
If you are going to make the headboard your centerpiece, when you distress it, try to make it a neutral color that is compatible with the walls. A dry brushed white will make it easiest to coordinate the wall, headboard and bed spreads to really help to tie everything together.
With neutral wall and headboard colors, you can go to town with what you do to your bed. I really like to use strong, powerful colors like oranges and reds, similar to the bed above. If your room is big enough, use side tables. These are a great way to keep your bedroom organized. I would caution against antiquing them, however. With the head piece already weathered, it can overdo the design technique.http://business-allo.com/blog/bedroom-ideas-renova...
You wake up and walk downstairs to your kitchen. You skip turning on the 1970s lights that flicker on and off in favor of making your coffee. As you sip your coffee, slowly waking up, a sneer slowly starts to creep up your lips. You realize that you hate everything about it and that given the choice between living through a kitchen remodel and having to wake up another morning to it, you decide to gut out the remodel. That means that your first order of business when you get to work is to call your interior designer.
