Summers Are More Fun with a Backyard Deck

When I was growing up, my family home had a backyard deck. I didn't realize how much I loved it until I later moved into my own home that didn't have one. We used to have family over for outdoor gatherings and cook out on it. It was covered, so if it rained, it never ruined the party! As a teenager, one of my favorite ways to relax was to go outside onto the deck and listen to the rain fall on its roof. The sound was so soothing. After enduring one summer in my new home with no deck, I was determined to have one installed quickly. I found a local contractor who got the job done quickly and accurately, and my house now feels like a "home!" I decided to start a blog to share what I learned during the deck construction process along with some other tips!


Glass Decorating Ideas For Your Office

Are you responsible for decorating an office? Perhaps you own an office of your own. If you're looking for new decorating ideas, take advantage of these tips to make an attractive looking office using different glass options:

Mirrors: Mirrors will make even the most cramped office feel larger. However, an entire wall of mirrors may make some clients and employees feel uneasy. Instead, have a glass company install mirrors in strategic locations. Placing mirrors where they can reflect windows and the sky outside will likely give you the best results. If your office has no exterior windows, place mirrors sparingly and only on one side of your office, to subconsciously simulate what a bank of windows might look like.

Faux stained glass: If mirrors aren't your style, then have a glass company install fake stained glass windows. These are made by putting lighting into a frame and then covering it with frosted glass, to simulate light streaming in from outside. The frosted glass is then covered with a translucent vinyl with a pattern resembling traditional stained glass. Due to the variety of stained glass patterns out there, you're almost sure to find one that'll fit your style. You may, of course, also choose to use actual stained glass for an even more realistic faux window.

Real stained glass: If your office has actual windows, you can obtain better privacy by having a glass company install actual stained or frosted glass windows. This will still allow some natural light to enter your office, while blocking the inside view from curious eyes outside. If you are concerned about your employees spending too much time staring outside instead of working, obscuring the view will prevent that from happening.

Windows between areas: For a variety of reasons, you may want to open up your floor plan by partially knocking out interior walls. However, in some cases, you may wish to preserve the soundproofing that a solid wall provides. Have a glass company install double pane windows in the new opening. This will afford you with a clear view, while still partially preserving privacy for people on either side.

Skylights: If you happen to own your office building, you may wish to install skylights in your roof at various points. This can allow visitors to enjoy the sunlight and enjoy beautiful views of the sky while waiting. This can also help you save on your electricity bills, by helping to eliminate the need for artificial lighting. Since there are many different office-quality skylights available, you should consult with a professional at to determine what kind will best work with your building.
