The Truth About Painting Your Kitchen Cabinets
As a professional interior decorator I often get asked great home improvement questions. Not long ago someone I know asked me for advice on painting their kitchen cabinets. I know a lot of DIY (do-it-yourself) websites and many TV shows promote painting your kitchen cabinets. My opinion is a little different. I want you to know some unpopular truths about painting your kitchen cabinets.1. Painting the kitchen cabinetsis not a weekend project:The work required to properly prep the surface of the door fronts and the boxes which requires removing hardware, washing several times, sanding all the surfaces, wiping off all the sanding dust can take some considerable time.Now add to that taping off the areas in the kitchen you don't want to get paint on and removing items in the drawers, removing all the door fronts. You need to place thedoor fronts on a level surface.The next step ispriming all surfaces and lettingit dry. Now you can actually start painting butbe sure to do several thin layers of paint and have the paint thoroughly dry between the coats for the best finish. It is easily a 2 weekend project if not 5 to 6 days to do the job right and not make it look like an amateur. Once all the cabinets are painted, let them dry and cure for 2 weeks - yes, weeks - before you re-assemble and use your kitchen.2. Painting the cabinets is a "band-aid" - not a long term remedy Even if done properly and with great care, the products available for the home DIY just won't last. When painting thecabinets plan to get 5 years out of it before it needs a touch up or more. Yes, for a quick solution or if you need to put the house on the market - Painting cabinets is a solution. If you plan on staying in your house for the foreseeable future - plan on painting them again. Paintedkitchen cabinetsare not for the long term.3. Painted cabinets are not for you, if you are a 'clean freak' If you use cleaners to wipe down your cabinets, think again. You need to treat painted cabinets very carefully. Cleaners can weaken the paint on the cabinets and actually soften it. Cleaning them frequently will wear away the paint and they will look worse than they did before. You just can't use typical cleaners on painted surfaces. Most of the time people paint cabinets some variation of white or cream. Over time those colors show dirt, grease, and stainsvery easily even with gloss paint.4. Kitchen cabinets are the most used piece of furniture in the house.Kitchens get the most traffic of the whole house (along with the bathroom) . Three or more times a day people are opening, shutting, splattering, steaming the surface of the cabinets. Imagine if you had a painted piece of furniture - like a much loved chair -that was used as much and in conditions like a kitchen for years - would it hold up? no. It will be worn, marked and chipped before you know it. If you seldom use your kitchen (you know the take-out phone number by heart) than painting your cabinets may be for you.5. Professional direct-from-factory cabinets hold up better than any DIY job The factory has the tools, machines and drying facilities to bake the paint on. You do not. You just can't get the durability from a home project. if you like the painted look, the manufactured cabinets that are already painted are so much better. Save the $100you would have spent on paint and use it to start saving for a true solution. Our society always want a quick fix. Quick change is not always the best solution in the long run.So to summarize : Yes, in pinch and for the short term (less than 5 years) painting cabinets works beautifully. Long term solution inmy professional opinion is No. So...did that person (the clean freak, family of five, done-in-one-weekend person) who wanted advice listen to me? No - they did not. I'll be talking to them again sooner than they think.
Tips for Undertaking Sustainable Joinery in Sydney Homes
With the general public's emphasis on environmentally friendliness constantly on the rise, the idea of sustainable joinery in Sydney is one that the government and local councils are taking on board. Whilst green practices are now fairly common within the commercial areas of the city, the cheap materials that people insist on using in their homes are still adding to the toxicity and out-gas that we release every day. Read on if you are interested in learning more about sustainable joinery practices that enable homeowners to do their bit for the environment.Whilst most people may be turned off the idea of sustainable joinery because they believe that it will be extremely expensive, it is important to note that this is really not the case. In fact, the difference between the cost for sustainable and traditional joinery in Sydney is not actually all that significant at all; appliances aside, you could probably pick up a sustainable kitchen for around $23,000. It is true that flat-packed kitchen will only cost you about half this, but once you look at installation and contractor costs you will quickly realize that your final bill will be around the same price.One way that you can work towards having completely sustainably joinery in Sydney homes is by determining whether the product is recyclable (should you decide sometime in the future that that built-in wardrobe is no longer for you or those kitchen cabinets don't match the decor). By ensuring that your joinery is constructed using solid timber, plywood and bamboo (for a few examples) you can lessen the amount of materials that find their way into landfill.Another way to work towards sustainability is to look into whether there is any alternatives to wood that could be used for joinery in Sydney. There are a number of products that meet this description - for example, bamboo fiber and recycled paper that has been bound together with a water-based resin formula - but they still lack the popularity in Sydney that they really need to take off. The great thing about these sorts of products is that they are easy to maintain, any scratches can be easily removed, and they don't contain toxic chemicals or off gassing.If you are a person who is concerned with what sort of impact you are having on the environment, you should take a good hard look at the materials that have been used for joinery in Sydney just in your own home. Consider having those harmful built-in wardrobes and toxic kitchen cabinets ripped out, replacing them with some joinery work that not only looks fantastic; it is completely sustainable, too.

A home should be a place where youfeel comfortable after your heavy work schedule, rushing back through roads withtraffic jams and crowds throughout the day. This is why home design shouldalways be a combination of aesthetics and utility; i.e. maintenance, safety,easy-to-use equipment, life of the product and cost. Most of these elementsshould always be considered from the point of view of utility; with just a fewbeing solely of aesthetic value.Consider this:• Avoidpolished furniture in areas that receive direct sunlight because sometimes theveneer looses it natural colour and the melamine polish also gets flaked.• Familieswith small children should opt for laminate instead of veneer, which requirespolishing. Use real washable paints like oil paint or pearl lustre in thechildren''s room.• Melaminepolish is not at all scratch-resistant, so even if you prefer using veneer withpolishing, try avoiding it for horizontal surfaces or you will have to use aglass top to protect it. There are a variety of laminates available, which matchmost of the natural veneers, so use matching laminates on horizontal surfaces• Usinga wood finish laminate for your furniture instead of veneer is quite common.Nowadays, many laminates are available that appear to look like natural veneers.You can''t tell the difference unless you touch it• Alwaystry to keep all furniture ends round. Avoid sharp corners especially for woodentops, glass tops and stone tops• Useantiskid tiles for flooring in bathrooms, because ceramic tiles with a glossyfinish or natural stones such as marble or granite are dangerous, specially whenthey get wet • Choosetaps with chrome plating over the coloured ones, because chrome-plated fittingslook the same even after several years and are priced lower that thechrome-plated ones. Detergent and hard water from bore wells affect ivory goldor black gold fittings, which tend to lose their sheen • Whilepainting, avoid using any colours on the ceiling except white otherwise thenatural light reflection in the room will be lost and it will look gloomy allthe time• Oneshould ideally use plain glass for windows -- it creates an illusion of space,as the natural surroundings outside seem to become part of the room. You canalways put up curtains for privacy.• Alwaysuse a dark-coloured glossy laminate band as the skirting for kitchen furniture.This will keep the furniture from looking dirty over time. Preferably opt for adark band of black or brown • It isadvisable to use silver-finish handles on kitchen cabinets as their finish lastslonger. Even good quality brass handles will fade over a period of time due tofrequent contact with turmeric.

Sitting Pretty in Four-season Community in Collingwood
Karen Willison thinks economist David Foote was right on the money in his 1996 book Boom, Bust & Echo."I'm a huge fan because just as David Foote predicted, the baby boomers want to downsize; it's a very interesting demographic," says Willison, who is a sales representative for Pretty River Estates Collingwood, by Delpark Homes.The project is slated for around 180 homes on the south side of Collingwood and is appealing to the baby boom generation, who now that their children have flown the nest in communities such as Brampton and Toronto, are looking for a home in an active four-season community, says Willison."Now the kids have left home, they want to downsize to a bungalow with a loft," says Willison.Another key factor is that Pretty River is located just a couple of minutes drive or a short ride or walk on trails from banks, the hospital, theatres, drug stores and libraries.Pretty River homes, which feature gabled roofs with steep pitches, porches, wide eaves and exteriors of wood, brick and stone, are also appealing to the "move up" crowd buying their second or even third home.With homes starting at 1,302 square-feet for $307,990 on a 45-foot lot ranging up to a 3,011 square-foot home with five bedrooms on a 50-foot lot for $468,990, Pretty River can meet the needs of buyers from both demographic groups, says Willison.First occupancies are scheduled for the spring of 2010.Delpark Homes has been building in the Greater Toronto Area for more than 30 years. When Delpark owner Enzo Giovanni heard that the Pretty River site was on the market, he decided to move north, says Willison.There are three furnished model homes each with a different interior design and color palette.Homes will be a mix of single family and semi-detached homes and will include such standards features as designer style kitchen cabinets with post formed laminated counter tops and breakfast bars. Bathrooms include features such as large corner oval tubs.

Habitats/upper West Side; From Dull and Uninspiring to Cozy and Elegant
THE walls, the kitchen cabinets and even the bedroom floor were all the same color: a dull, grayish white. The doors to the closets were hollow. A cheap bookcase rested against the wall of the study. Moldings were used erratically in boxy, architecturally undistinguished rooms. A too-large air-conditioner dominated the top of one window, its ungainly cord stretched high across a wall.Habitable, yes. Inspiring, no. But to Brian Tobin, who flew to New York from Tokyo in March for a few days of apartment hunting, it was ideal. He had lived in New York before, and he knew what he liked. The duplex apartment on the Upper West Side was near Central Park, and it had a potentially lovely garden where his two golden retrievers, Rusty and Max, could spend their days while he was at work.A trader of Japanese stocks for Salomon Smith Barney, he wasn't afraid to make quick decisions. After a brief bidding war conducted from Tokyo, he bought the apartment for $470,000 and immediately called a contractor recommended by a friend.One month after he bought it, exactly on schedule, he moved into the brownstone duplex at 24 West 83d Street, now painted in a rich palette of cantaloupe and green. It is a cozy and elegant place, and not simply because of his cherry furniture and green leather couches.Crown moldings circle the ceilings. Baseboards hide all wires and give a neat finish where the wall meets the floor. Substantial custom-made doors open into the guest room and the closet in the living room. The walls are smooth and seem to glow, the result of new plaster and an expert paint job.The renovation of the apartment cost him $40,000, no small sum for a collection of seemingly minor details. But taken together, they give a formerly undistinguished apartment character and clean lines.Someone else might have spent the same amount of money putting in a new kitchen, or new bathrooms. He has kept them intact, focusing instead on the myriad of small flaws that burdened the apartment with its tacky, anonymous feel, like a place too often rented, with no one putting a hand to it, making a mark, giving it substance.For Mr. Tobin, 39, who has made eight international moves in the last 16 years, the $40,000 was a magic and inviolable number. He decided at the start that he could spend no more than that, because he wanted to spend only 10 percent of the purchase price on both renovating and decorating. He believes that is the amount he can recapture if he has to sell soon. Any more he considers risky, given his conviction that the real estate market has peaked.And from previous experience with renovations, he understood that if he put a lot of money into, say, a gorgeous bathroom, it would have looked out of place in an apartment with rickety doors and ugly light fixtures, and he might never have recouped his investment.Mr. Tobin praises his contractor, Richard Baronio & Associates, for doing the work on schedule and within budget. They, in turn, say that Mr. Tobin was an unusual client, because he was decisive, acted quickly and never changed his mind, saving both time and money.Work began on the apartment one day after the May 7 closing. In the living room, excess ceiling lights and sconces were removed. Mirrored doors to the closet were replaced because, Mr. Tobin says, they ''looked flimsy and cheap, like a hotel room you wouldn't stay in.''The living room had a simple brick fireplace that seemed to recede, almost to disappear. By adding a simple wood mantel designed by Georgina Sanger, a design consultant for Baronio, he gave it much more of a presence. The sloping ceiling was replastered, to make it flat. A thin coat of plaster on the walls helped provide a base so the paint would have a smooth, even finish, Without that skim coat, Ms. Sanger says, walls ''look mottled, with that eggy texture.''The small guest room off the living room was given a new doorway and doors, and it will be home to the television set, which Mr. Tobin dislikes but considers a necessary evil. All the exposed wires were buried in the walls, because he didn't want any of them visible. The cord from the air-conditioner now plugs into a nearly invisible socket, and new molding around a new, much smaller unit greatly diminishes its presence.All the kitchen cabinets, and the front of the refrigerator, were painted the same cantaloupe color that covers the walls of the living room and dining area. It's a small kitchen, but efficiently designed, and for a confident cook, like Mr. Tobin, who can carry on a conversation and still manage to turn out three kinds of pasta for a dinner party -- gnocchi with pesto, tortellini with cream and mushrooms and penne arrabiata -- it is clearly adequate.The biggest draw may have been the garden, where Mr. Tobin cut the ivy way back but otherwise did little. ''After the sun goes down and the fireflies are out,'' he says, ''people say this isn't New York. It's the Hamptons.''DOWNSTAIRS, the bedroom is painted in salmon, with white trim. The white marble floor in the bedroom was covered with wool wall-to-wall carpeting. ''I couldn't see myself waking up and stepping on marble,'' Mr. Tobin says. A second and unnecessary entrance into the apartment was closed off and turned into an extra closet, for things like ironing boards.A small study off the bedroom has a built-in bookcase, created at Ms. Sanger's suggestion from a freestanding unit that had been left there, seemingly destined for the Dumpster. With a baseboard on the bottom, molding on top and the sides filled in, it now looks substantial.Mr. Tobin wanted to do more -- wainscoting, for instance -- but the budget wouldn't allow it. A previous experience in London, where he bought a small two-bedroom apartment and gutted it, taught him some lessons, he says. ''A four-week job turned into four months, and I spent 30 percent more than I wanted to,'' he says. He installed expensive wall-to-wall carpeting throughout, for instance, which he now considers a mistake.''In London, I thought I was going to stay for a long time,'' he says. ''Now I'm more realistic. I could get transferred, or not have a job.''He says he has learned that it is important to live in a place for a while before making drastic changes, and to make do with what you have. He would like, for instance, to remodel the bathroom, putting in new tile and fixtures, but has decided that would be unwise.''Instead,'' he says, ''I spent $26 on a new shower curtain. And it's not bad.''
Triple-Amputee Veteran Receives 'Smart Home'
U.S. Marine Cpl. Juan Dominguez, who lost three of his limbs serving in Afghanistan, his wife, Alexis, and their 8-year-old daughter received the gift of a lifetime on the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11th: a custom-built "smart home."The home is equipped with an elevator, automatic kitchen cabinets and surveillance cameras -- a system that's almost entirely controlled from an iPad. The home even includes a music studio for Dominguez to play the drums, a passion of his."Juan, he's got the heart of a Marine, and it's a never quit attitude," actor Gary Sinise, founder of the Gary Sinise Foundation, told ABC affiliate KGTV in San Diego. "He joined the service voluntarily. He knew that as a Marine, you're going to get sent into harm's way.""I wanted to be that volunteer," Dominguez told KGTV. "So the people around me that didn't want to volunteer didn't have to," said Dominguez."The money for the approximately $600,000 home located in Temecula, Calif., came from the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation and the Gary Sinise Foundation. The goal was to help Dominguez reclaim his independence.Dominguez was in high school when he watched both World Trade Center towers collapse on television. At that moment he made a gut decision to join the Marines.While on tour in Afghanistan two years ago, Dominguez stumbled on an improvised explosive device, or IED, losing both of his legs and an arm.Dominguez's story immediately hit home for the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation's founders, whose younger brother, New York firefighter Stephen Siller, died on 9/11. As soon as Siller's six brothers and sisters learned of his death, they vowed right then and there to start a foundation in Stephen's name dedicated to helping wounded veterans."The fact that we are helping Juan to reclaim his full active life by providing him with a home designed to meet his special needs means everything to Stephen's family," said Frank Siller, chairman of the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, in a news release. "Giving Juan a measure of his life back -- after all he has done -- on the anniversary of the day our brother died, means the world to us."
