Quick Furniture Tips

Furniture placement can be a tricky task.

It’s a question anyone who owns furniture is forced to confront: What is the best way to arrange it? When space comes at a premium, that question becomes even trickier to answer. 

Luckily, here at constructionweb we have created this article to help you pro guide you. The handy guide features tricks of the trade that help optimize the space in any room. And while trial and error are to be expected, knowing these key furniture arranging tips and tricks will only help make the design method smoother.

 Basically, there are two steps to proper furniture placement: Planning your layout and then bringing that layout to life. More conceptual tricks include considering the function of each piece of furniture and figuring out how to keep traffic moving.

  1. The first step is hectic clear the room, if possible. I know this can be difficult, especially in a confined, city apartment, but it is sometimes impossible to reflect a fresh new look unless you begin with a blank palette. Alternatively, you can draw the preferred layout on a piece of paper before placement.
  2. Every room needs one. Yeah, a focal point. Create a focal point  This is the defining element in your room. It could be  a fireplace or a unique of furniture or artwork. Your furniture should be arranged to take advantage of your focal point. For example, in the living room or bedroom, the sofa or bed should face the focal point.
  3. Arrange your seats in a way that enables conversation. For example, instead of placing two chairs across from the couch facing them upright ahead, angle them toward each other
  4.  Coming in 4th is the Wall-art ratio Homeowners generally hang wall portraits at eye altitude, similar to the organization in an art gallery, so visitants can appreciate them. If you’d like to give the idea of a taller ceiling, dangle wall art slightly lower than eye height to create more distance between the top of the art and the ceiling.
  5. Each furniture doesn’t have to be parallel to or at a 90-degree angle from your walls or other pieces of chattels. Try placing a sofa, loveseat or chairs on an angle to deal with space constraints, encourage dialogue and create asymmetry.
  6. If your house got a dining room area consider banquette arrangement. A banquette is a permanent bench-like seat attached to a wall. You don’t have to push chairs in and out as you sit, The advantage installing banquette is you can use them to provide extra storage. l. Most fast foods joints are designed like this, for instance, java house Image result for java house interior design
  7. Use an area rug it helps any visitant define a space, such as a convenient seating setup. The rug should be wide enough so all seating and tables are completely placed on the rug. Sofas and chairs that are half-on, half-off a rug don’t let you define the entire space.

8 The theatre experience – When installing up your TV room, think of where people will be sitting when they watch the screen and what time of day they’ll be watching. Daytime viewing means sunlight coming through windows—don’t place video screens facing them. Evening viewing means lights will be on, which can shine onto screens. Test lamp and screen placement before you move heavy equipment. Don’t place audio speakers near walls, which can absorb sound and create vibrations. Keep them at least 6 inches from walls, drapes and furniture.

LIVING TOMORROW IN SMART HOMES

Home automation or smart home also known as domotics is building automation for the home. It involves the control and automation of lighting, heating (such as smart thermostats), ventilation, air conditioning and security,a s well as home appliances.

The word “domotics” is a contraction of the Latin word for a home “domus” and the words informatics, telematics and robotics.

The integration of technology and services for a better quality of life.

There are 3 generations of home automation/ domotics

  • First generation: wireless technology with proxy server
  • Second generation: artificial intelligence controls electrical devices
  • Third generation: robot buddy who interacts with humans

From the point of view of where the intelligence of the domotic system resides, there are three different architectures:

Centralized Architecture: a centralized controller receives information of multiple sensors and, once processed, generates the opportune orders for the actuators.

Distributed Architecture: all the intelligence of the system is distributed by all the modules that are sensors or actuators. Usually it is typical of the systems of wiring in bus.

Mixed Architecture: systems with decentralized architecture as far as which they have several small devices able to acquire and to process the information of multiple sensors and to transmit them to the rest of devices distributed by the house.

APPLICATION 

  •  Heating, ventilation and air conditioning : it is possible to have remote control of all home energy monitors over the internet incorporating a simple and friendly user interface.
  • Lighting control system
  • Occupancy-aware control system: it is possible to sense the occupancy of the home using smart meters and environmental sensors like CO2 sensors,  which can be integrated into the building automation system to trigger automatic responses for energy efficiency and building comfort applications.
  • Appliance control and integration system  with the smart grid and a smart meter, taking advantage, for instance, of high solar panel output in the middle of the day to run washing machines.
  • Security system : a household security system integrated with a home automation system can provide additional services such as remote surveillance of security cameras over the Internet, or central locking of all perimeter doors and windows.
  • Leak detection, smoke and CO detectors      ALSO READ :   Fire protection and Detection systems
  • Indoor positioning systems
  • Home automation for the elderly and disabled  

The interconnection is either wireless (WiFi and Infra red) or by wire, however home automation does not guarantee 100% security it  is vulnerable to hacking.
