          Choosing The Shape And Mounting Of Your Kitchen Sink

          Posted: February 25th, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Under Cabinet Tips | Tags: , , , , | 1 Comment »

          The first thing you will have to consider when choosing your sink is space. Might seem obvious but it is the root from which almost every decision about your kitchen is made. With a bit of thought though, you can maximise the space with no compromise on looks or quality. I hope this article gives you some ideas on options for your kitchen. On a basic level a sink is just a squarish bowl that you use to wash things, but with a bit of thought it can be beautiful as well as functional.

          As part of the sink structures you may have waste disposal drainage, twin sinks … and of course you have to fit the taps in two. A popular arrangement now on larger kitchens is two large bowls with a smaller one in the middle for waste. It really is up to your taste – the only thing I’d recommend is that one of the bowls be 10inches or so deep, will just make that washing up a whole lot easier.

          First thing to consider – circular or square? Square is much more efficient on space and may indeed be the only shape that looks neat in your kitchen. It can look a bit utilitarian for the concept of some kitchens, and for them an oval or circular sink will be in order. There are other exotic shapes around too, have a good browse through the internet for inspiration.

          I would suggest though that your taps and sink match (or the taps and worktop), so don’t forget to put a little effort into designing the worktop and fittings as a whole, with each part complementing each other: and if one bit of the ensemble is wrong, it rather spoils the overall effect.

          There are further choices to be made regarding fitting where some design flair and imagination can really make a huge difference. It used to be that there was just one way of mounting your sink, but now there are several. Let’s take a look at these in turn.

          The traditional mount is where the sink is dropped from the top of the worktop and secured on its lip. In many way this can look outdated and old fashioned but it is ever so cost effective and still gets the job done. You need a sealer between the sink which degrades with age raising hygiene issues.

          The most popular mount today is ‘undermount’, where the sink is secured underneath the countertop. This installation is common with modern stainless tubs and stone worktops, creating a smooth surface of uniform height allowing for easy clean up. Looks beautiful too.

          ‘Farmhouse’/’Apron & Belfast’ – These are often called ‘country-style’ sinks owing to their timeless, rustic quality. The sink is actually built in to the countertop leaving the front side of the sink visible. A very attractive look for some kitchens and well worth researching.

          Intergrated sinks are a relatively new thing – essentially they are made so that you cannot tell where the worktop starts and the sink ends. This smooth, ultra-modern look can only be accomplished using the latest in solid surface materials (such as Corian by Dupont). This seamless, ridge-free surface obviously has some great hygiene benefits too as it is so easy to wipe clean with no nooks and crannies.

          So there you have it, some great options for you to consider that can really make a difference to your kitchen concept. Take a bit of time to think through your options and you can have a sink that will enhance the look of your kitchen, rather than something to be hidden away.

          Simple Techniques for Mounting Flat Panel Tvs

          Posted: December 7th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Under Cabinet Tips | Tags: , , , , | No Comments »

          Flat panel televisions are the newest and hottest technology in televisions, and they offer several advantages over standard tube televisions. One of these advantages is the great increase in picture quality, they also offer sleeker, more modern designs that fit well with any decor. Another great benefit is the fact that they are well designed for wall mounting due to their flat design as well as their light weight.

          When you begin to consider the possibility of wall mounting one of the first things that you need to know is what is behind the wall that you plan to cut in to, you don’t want to drill or cut into anything in the process of mounting.

          Once you’ve determined that you are safe to mount in your chosen location it is time to look at equipment needs for this job. Most of the flat panels that you can purchase do not come with the mounting hardware necessary for wall mounting, so you will need to purchase it separate from the television. First of all you must find and purchase an appropriate wall-mounting bracket, you should be able to check your owner’s manual to determine a suitable bracket for your television. The majority of flat panel TV models are compatible with several brackets that follow the standards set by VESA. The models will have the word VESA, which will then be followed by a number that indicates a millimeter distance between mounting holes on the brackets or the TV. An example of this would be a VESA 75, which means that the four holes on the bracket are separated by 75 mm, there are also some brackets that are rectangular in shape and will have a VESA number like 100/200, which indicates that on two sides of the rectangle the holes are separated by 100mm and on the other two by 200mm.

          Next on the list of importance is to ensure that the bracket you select is compatible with the screen size of your flat panel, as well as to double check that the weight capability can hold the weight of your TV. It is also important to consider what you would like the bracket to do, such as swiveling to avoid glare or for a better view from a different seat in the room. You may need to nudge the television slightly after mounting in order to assure that your view is exactly as you would like.

          The ideal mounting is one where the TV screen is at about eye level to seating, you should also be aware of glare from light reflection, which will reduce the quality of your view, so be aware of these things during the mounting process.

          Another aspect of the mounting is the placement of power and A/V cabling. There are ways of doing this that are quick, and ways that are more labor intensive. You can run your wires inside of the wall if you would like, but this will be the most labor intensive. Other options for wiring that avoid the in-wall labor include the use of paintable cable raceways that you can attach to the wall, or you could consider running cables underneath baseboard or molding if you have more distance to cover. Any of these options will eliminate the ugliness associated with the tangled mess of cables and cords that are often visible between your television and your entertainment cabinet.

          Once you’ve determined the route and method of cabling you will need to figure how much of the wiring you will need. As in any situation it is better to have too much than too little, following is an example:

          Running wire from receiver to wall -3 ft

          Running horizontally behind the wall -7 ft

          Running vertically to TV inside the wall -5 ft

          Wire for wall to TV distance (with slight excess) -2 ft

          Total of all measures -18 ft, adding a 15% error factor gives you approximately 21ft necessary to do the job properly.

          Once you’ve reached this point you are basically finished, all you have to do from here is fit the two pieces of the mount, the one on the wall and the one on the back of the TV, together and your flat panel TV is successfully wall-mounted.

          LCD TV Mounting

          Posted: November 19th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Under Cabinet Tips | Tags: | No Comments »

          An LCD stands for in many homes, the living room is the first room that you will see when you walk into the house. The television is usually the first thing that anyone would notice, followed by the TV stand. Being one of the most prominent pieces of furniture at home it pays to make the extra effort in choosing the perfect TV stand.

          A TV wall mount is most commonly used to refer to LCD TV Mounts. Naturally, a box television set can also be wall-mounted. If you’re interested in this type of TV wall mount, you probably just need to look for advice or a contractor who can install wall cabinets or shelving. Usually, there’s a way to artfully camouflage any necessary wiring for a box set television. The look of the TV stand can either compliment the feel of your home, or totally stick out like a sore thumb.

          The first thing you’ll need to know is which mount you will need to get. This is based on the size, brand, and weight of your TV. You have to know exactly which mount to get because a lot of them are not interchangeable. A TV wall mount is a wonderful space saving device that can suspend a TV in mid-air. Finding the correct spot for a TV isn’t always easy, but wall mounts can provide a good solution. They can be dangerous though if they are not installed properly. You need to know a lot before you buy and install a TV mount.

          An LCD TV requires and LCD mounts. For more research to help you get the correct mount, check out wall mount bracket. You have to be a little bit handy around the house to be able to install the mount yourself You should understand how to use basic power tools like drills and stud finders. The TV mount should come with a set of instructions, but you need to be sure to read every line before the installation.

          One of the only differences between a plasma TV and LCD, as far as installation goes is that a mid-sized LCD is significantly lighter than its plasma counterpart. This means for a small or mid-sized LCD you can get away with attaching the mount to just one wall stud, although you’ll still need to tie down the other end with some kind of anchor.

          A Guide To Choosing And Mounting Plasma Tv Frames

          Posted: November 13th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Under Cabinet Tips | Tags: , , , , | No Comments »

          Most televisions do not come pre packaged with their own mounting frames and it can sometimes be a daunting task selecting the right one for your needs let alone trying to actually mount it on a wall.

          Fixing lcd or plasma tv frames to walls can be a tricky business especially if the fitter has little or no previous experience with DIY projects. Also sufficient time should be set aside to carefully plan and consider where in the room you are going to place the television set.

          Choosing the right frame

          The television is more often than not the focal point of the family sitting room and there is nothing better than watching a great movie in the company of loved ones. That said when the television is not switched on, your gaze will still unfortunately be drawn to it but instead it will now be a depressing empty back square

          Fortunately you can buy custom plasma tv frames that smartly conceal the set in a number of different ways: –
          Firstly and probably the oldest method is to hide the screen in a self contained unit looking not dissimilar to a wooden cabinet. The motorised mechanism allows the screen when switched on to rise from the cabinet. This is best suited as at the foot of the bed in the style of an ottoman.

          You can also hang plasma tv frames from the ceiling! These ingenious motorised designs allow for the tv to either drop or fold down from a concealed panel in the ceiling. These are probably the most costly plasma tv frames on the market and careful consideration needs to be taken into account when assessing the structure of the building bearing in mind the weight of a large plasma screen.

          The most popular and fashionable art of camouflage is to hide the screen from view behind a picture. Again, there are various ways this can be done. Typically the screen would be hidden from view by a hand picked piece of artwork complete with frame. This would either roll or rise up or slide to the side. This is probably the cheapest and most practical method to hide your screen and would be ideally suited to the sitting room above a mantelpiece.

          Many of the specialised plasma tv frames will also allow the screen to be tilted or swivelled to achieve the optimum viewing angle. The design opportunities are endless and you can even buy a plasma that turns into a mirror! How cool would that be to be brushing your teeth in the bathroom whilst watching the breakfast show picture in picture!

          Groundwork and Preparation

          The majority of us will simply be installing standard wall mounted plasma tv frames which the average Joe should be quite capable of fitting if the correct planning and preparation is adhered to.

          Read your tv’s manual for mounting guidelines. Some models require the use of specific plasma tv frames whilst others will be compatible with a range of third party frames.

          Make sure the spot where you intend to hang the screen is not in direct sunlight making it difficult to view.

          Also check the maximum weight capacity of the frame and that it will support your television set. Make sure the wall is free from any obstacles and certainly check for electrical wires and pipe work that may be hidden in the wall.

          Ensure you have the right tools to hand. A power drill, tape measure, screwdriver, pencil and spirit level will all be essentials.

          Finally make sure you have a friend available with strong and steady hands to assist you as these sets can weigh in excess of 90lbs. Trying to hang anything straight on a wall single-handed is difficult enough let alone a plasma television.

          If careful planning and preparation together with accurate measurements made, you will have the job done in no time at all!
