Paige Guillaume Duvet Covers March 27, 2018
Coordinates - Choosing the best double duvet cover for your needs may also depend on your existing bedroom decor. If you currently have some bedding pieces such as a bed skirt and want to only update the cover on your comforter then finding a solid or print that matches should probably be fairly easy because there are so many to choose from. If you are replacing all of your existing bedding then look for duvet sets. They usually contain a bed skirt or at least two shams (for double and full sizes) that can be purchased at once. Often the set that you choose will have quite a few other coordinating pieces that can be purchased separately. These items include throw pillows throw blankets sheets dust ruffles curtains and other window treatments and even bathroom accessories.

Durability: hardwood is solid and sturdy, making it resistant to dents and scratches, which are part of daily life. This type of flooring is easily able to withstand heavy furniture as well as items being accidentally dropped on the floor.

Engineered hardwood floors are a laminate built from multiple ply layers with a thick hardwood veneer wear layer on top. The veneer layer is available in almost any exotic hardwood species with exotic color and grain patterns. Engineered hardwood floors are more resistant to moisture than natural wood flooring, which adds to their appeal because they can be installed in damp regions of the country and in basements with relatively high humidity levels.

Finishing-Most hardwood floors are sold with some form of factory finish. These consist of protective coats of polyurethane, aluminum oxide, or a combination of both, that are applied to protect the wood from wear and tear. The latest available factory finishes have been formulated to make hardwood flooring more scratch-resistant. In case you purchased unfinished flooring, it will still need to undergo finishing once the floors are installed. However, the quality of the finishing will not be as good as if it were finished in a factory.

Make sure you know your specific type of flooring and finish. You should also be sure to follow the specific manufacturer`s instructions for cleaning and general maintenance. Do some research on how to care for your particular kind of finish. For example, paste wax should never be used on polyurethane finish. Sweeping hardwood floors with a soft broom on a regular basis naturally buffs the surface, therefore protecting it from scratches. Another obvious advantage of this is that it will keep the floor clean. Where possible, leave shoes at the door to avoid dragging extra dirt and grime onto the floor. If not, consider using rugs in high traffic areas such as hallways and entrances to keep feet clean. Remove any solid materials from the floor such as sand, grit and dirt among others. These materials are abrasive and can dull and even scratch the floor`s finish. Use a dry towel to wipe spills and other messes from wood floors. Oils soaps should NEVER be used on hardwood floors. These oils will eventually build up and will dull the surface of the floor. In addition to this, it will make it difficult to refinish the floor whenever needed. Use a vacuum with a bare floor attachment. Such a vacuum easily removes dirt and dust without scratching or otherwise damaging the floor. Do not drag furniture across the floor when moving it. Instead, lift the furniture when moving it. Where dragging is inevitable, invest in a set of slip-mats. Where these are not available, lids from plastic food containers work just as well. Use only cleaners that have specifically been manufactured for use on hardwood floors. Do not substitute with linoleum, laminate or tile cleaners as these can cause the floor to become extra slippery. Use as little water as possible when cleaning wood floors. Wet spots should also be immediately wiped up after cleaning.

Glue - Many hardwood panel kits come with their own glue. If you need to buy glue for your hardwood panels, I highly recommend Bostik`s Best Adhesive.

Durable Coatings-Traditional finishing products are used on engineered hardwood floors, but other finishes are available that are much more durable than the products available for site application. Quality manufacturers apply 7-10 coats of aluminum oxide crystals or diamond dust to make the engineered hardwood finish harder than anything that could be applied on site or even purchased in a Home Depot. Engineered hardwood floors come with as much as a 25-year warranty.

Natural Variety in Color-Since the Asian walnut hardwood exhibits a naturally wide variety in color, it`s better to request for two sample boards so you can envision how the finished floors will look like. Some individuals expect a certain level of uniformity in their flooring, while others enjoy the distinctive color gradients that Asian walnut hardwood flooring usually exhibit. For a more comprehensive peek at how the finished product will appear, you can try buying a box of boards and go about arranging them on your floor. This way, you should be more or less sure on whether or not you will be using Asia walnut hardwood for your home. If you decided otherwise, you will have only spent a fraction of the actual cost of flooring for the entire project.
