Kitchen Planning Guidance

A renovated kitchen is one of the biggest selling features in residential real estate. It's worth considering any such projects as a long-term investment - and taking the time to carefully plan every aspect. Right from the start, the most critical challenge is achieving an efficient kitchen layout. Regardless of the size, a kitchen should have the sink, refrigerator and oven/cooktop situated in classic work triangle or quad layout for ease of access within a few steps. It is also important to plan for adequate task lighting, as well as ambient, accent and/or overhead lighting. 

In addition, when designing the kitchen, consider window treatments for ambience and privacy. Even though an abundance of daylight or direct sunlight is generally appreciated, it will probably need to be diffused or screened at different times of day. Once these basic perimeter decisions are determined, devote any available space to comfortable seating, an organized counterspace and practical cabinetry - including drawers, shelving and storage. With so many specialty appliances and utensils being regularly used in modern kitchens, good and thoughtful design is particularly important to ensure a new kitchen is as functional and clutter-free as it is beautiful.

Ordering Picture Frames Online

Thanks to smartphone technology, it's now possible to send your favourite photographs and images off to a professional framing house, without leaving your home or risking damage to a precious print. All you need is a good quality digital photograph or image from your phone or camera that you can email or file transfer. In some cases, depending on the facility (and copyright laws), you may also be able to provide a high-resolution image of artwork for framing. Of course, the higher the resolution you can send, the better the quality of the results you'll receive.  But, that's just the beginning. Before committing to a particular frame, you can now use a frame service's app to test-view your photo, poster or art in position with an entire inventory of virtual framing and matting arrangements. You can try different combinations until you find the one that works best for you. You can even see how an individual piece looks on your wall or plan out an entire collage or galler
