I So Like The Slab Tiles But…

I saw one kitchen sink at the bank I went to one time and I got very attractive to it. I even sent a picture to my niece and she likes it too. I like the color which is black and I like the type of tiles that they installed. Yesterday when I was looking around to look for it, I realized the name of it and it’s called granite slab. When I checked of the price, I almost had my jaw-dropped the least expensive is worth P3,050.00 and the rest range to P 6,000. 00 to P 10,000. 00, which I could not afford at this time and  besides this kitchen will be condemned once I will extend the kitchen area. Thus, I choose the granite/ceramic tiles.

Finally!

I really thought that I won’t be able to realized of repairing the kitchen but thank GOD I am finally doing it. Last Friday I thought twice of repairing because I was thinking of the car too. But we always prioritize the car ever since. I always left the house behind when it comes to maintenance because the car is broke again. This time I guess it’s the house turn. I called the carpenter and told him to push through the repair this Saturday. So last Friday I bought some hinges for the cabinets both kitchen and in the bedroom, I am also asking them to put a stand for the two speakers.

Yesterday I bought a 60 x 60 granite/ceramics tiles. We choose the color black, my niece said it would match perfectly to the color of the house which is white. I also bought a stainless sink with anti most at the bottom part. I was so happy because I was able to pick the affordable one compared if I bought the same sink in the mall. I bought a new faucet, this time its not wall mounted, it is a single hand goose type faucet. I can’t wait to see the final revision of our kitchen sink especially when the kids said that they like the color of the tiles I picked.

There is nothing quite like laying next to a fire on a winter night. Do you have a fireplace in your home? Do you use it on a regular basis? If this is the case, you need to be certain that your chimney is cleaned very often. If can be very dangerous if you allow soot to build up inside the chimney because you have been neglecting it.

Your quest to find a good chimney cleaning company will be made much easier if you get advice from friends or family members who also have a fireplace in their home. These people will be able to tell you about their experiences looking for a company to clean their chimney. You should ask for the name of the company that cleans their chimney. Are they satisfied with the job this company does? How often do they clean the chimney? How long have they been using this particular company for their chimney cleaning Washington DC? Do they charge a reasonable rate for their services? You can then use the info they give you during your search.

2. What is involved in cleaning a chimney?

Chimneys are obviously very messy. The soot inside the chimney can get all over your home if the company cleaning it does not take the proper precautions. You should ask the chimney cleaning company what you should expect. Ask them to describe each step of the cleaning process. Are there any preparations that you need to make to your home before the cleaning can begin? Do you need to cover your carpeting or furniture? Make sure you have a complete understanding of what will take place.

Will Be Having A Kitchen Renovation Very Soon!

It has been months that I am planning to at least have a renovation in our house. At first I was thinking in adding one bedroom so it could mean extension but I realized I would need a huge amount of money for that. My niece suggested modifying the kitchen and since one of my goal this year is to make some repair or renovation to any part of the house, I agree with the suggestion. I was looking for a carpenter for how many months already, good thing my sister knows someone who could do it and finally we were able to see each other this morning.

We agreed to retain the cabinet door; we will just replace the hinges since most of it is busted already. I also told her to install a cabinet door since the cabinet just above the sink doesn’t have any. Of course we will be replacing the tiles, I am still thinking what color and what kind of tiles we will be buying hope to find the most affordable ones but look very classy. I was also asking if he could put a stand of our 2 speakers and another cabinet door in our bedroom.

I am so excited and can’t wait to see the finish work, the carpenter said that he can finish it in 3 days and since he will start on Saturday, I am expecting him to finish it on Monday.
