How to Select designer glasses frames

It can be difficult to know which glasses or sunglasses suit you best. Often the prices of glasses can be shocking, and you still don't know whether they are the best suited to you. After having these problems for many years, I have written the following article to help anyone in a similar situation. If you follow the below points you should be able to successfully purchase a pair of glasses or sunglasses which suit you, are high quality and affordable.

Before purchase prescription sunglasses or glasses I would advise you to have an eye test. Although this is an additional expense, it may be that you no longer need glasses. This can often be the case, and although you've paid for the eye examination, you will not have to pay for new glasses. If you do have to have glasses, many places will do the test for free as you are getting new specs from them.

Moving an Aquarium

Moving an aquarium is a tricky task. It is not as delicate as an antique vase but is not as solid as furniture. Despite the material of an object you should be careful; when moving it. 

And when we talk about aquariums you should be extremely careful because this is not just one of your many items but the home of your pet. The fact that fish live there does not make your task of moving their home any easier. 

On the contrary, you have to decide whether to take out the fish or leave it in the aquarium, and many other questions which should be taught over in advance. In that train of thoughts, here are some tips that could help.
Moving an Aquarium

Moving an aquarium can be easier if there are no fish in it. However, if your pet is still home, this is potentially problematic. You have to be well prepared and consider all the possible case scenarios. The moving should go smoothly without any surprises. 

This is one of the most stressful types of relocation because the damages which might occur will not be anything of the sort of a broken vase which you might fix. Any ‘damage’ in a situation like this i.e. concerning your pet’s life can be fatal. So, try to start getting ready early and thus avoid stress taking over your moving day.

Taking the above-mentioned into account, it is best if you take your fish out of the aquarium. Separating them will ensure a smoother transportation of the aquarium itself and a safer environment for your pet. Your friend’s tank or that of a pet shop will be good surroundings for your favorite fish while the moving is taking place. 

It is important to leave the fish in trusted hands where he/she will feel comfortable and safe. Mind that fish do not like changes and if everything happens too fast, it can cause them to die. So, be careful and do not take the fish with you until you settle down in your new place.

One of the things we know about fish is that they cannot survive more than a week without food. Anyway, it is not something that you should try to put to a test. Make sure you regularly feed your fish during your moving. Closely stick to his/hers habits to reduce the stress for your pet to a minimum. Apart from the environment, your fish should not experience any other changes that could harm his/her.

Remember that these pieces of advice are the only way to deal with such a situation if you are doing it yourself. It is so because house removals companies refuse to move pets. There, on the other hand, some that specialize in it but are very few and should be carefully researched. So they can be an option too.

And here are some more things you should take care of. When you decided for house removal move the fish in his/her temporary tank (at your friend or a pet shop), put it in a bag.

Half of the sealed bag should be filled with water and the other half with air or oxygen, in case transportation takes longer. And lastly, keep the roots of the aquarium plants wet and safely store all the toys to put back at the end.

Expert tips to selecting a perfect table lamps




The main key is to find the ideal combination of looks (form) and light (function). When it comes to selecting lamps, it’s easy to get lost without a little guide. How big is too big? And which shade goes best with which base?

There are endless possibilities but for now, let’s simply narrow it down to table lamp, hanging lantern or floor lamp.


Based on where your lamp will sit, you need to calculate three things:

  1. Size
  2. Style
  3. Brightness





Size – 
Before buying a lamp, it is essential to measure the area where the lamp is going to be placed. 

If you plan to have a table lamp, then the height and circumference of the table should be measured. The lamp should not be one and half times of the table  and the shade of the lamp should never overlap the table. Be sure to check the total weight of the lamp... If you have small children at home and if the area where you want to place the table high is high, then consider keep heavier lamps, else lighter lamps are ok.

Hanging lanterns (4), which are actually the most romantic kind of lamps, should be sized appropriately for the space they’ll occupy. No suspended lantern should hang lower than 1 foot above your extended arm’s reach when standing.


Styles of Lamps

Style – Contemporary, Traditional, Modern and Global are just a few of the myriad choices—and just for you info, lightingmiami.com has them all. Consider the decor of your space, but don’t obsess about being all ‘matchy.’ As a rule of thumb, clear bases (5) add less visual weight, while wood (6) or iron bases (7) provide texture and richness. Crystal lends a touch of glamour, and painted porcelain creates a luxurious or Old World feel. As long as a lamp works well with the object it sits on, you should be fine.

Brightness
Think about the primary function of your lamp: Mood lighting, reading, decoration or safety. For purely decorative lighting, you can choose an opaque fabric shade (8). It will illuminate the space from ceiling to floor rather than outward. For reading and brightening a room, select a translucent lampshade (9) that diffuses light.

See for yourself
Naturally, we think these sites (offer the best table lamp selection and encourage you to browse—from traditional porcelain table lamps to sleek, modern floor designs to fun and colorful hanging lanterns.

Go ahead and explore. We think you’ll see the light.





Happy lighting!

Your Mini Guide to Choosing Kitchen Lighting Fixtures


I remember as a young child the single fluorescent fixture that hung in the middle of the kitchen in the home I lived. At time this kitchen light was to bright when you were looking for a snack in the middle of the night. When there was cooking or baking to be done in the kitchen it was to din to read the recipes we were trying to use. Kitchen lighting has come a long way since then. 

In today’s modern kitchen there are several different types of kitchen lighting to help us accomplish what we need in the kitchen. In some of today’s modern kitchens the type of hardware and doors that are being used in the kitchen along with the correct choice of lighting the kitchen becomes a display area and adds a great look of elegance to our homes. 

via


We will look at a few popular types of fixtures used in the kitchen and see what they have to offer.

Track Lighting


This is a great way to offer halogen, fluorescent, and high-low voltage lights that will help you to direct the lighting where you need. There are several different type of track lighting that can be configured in hundreds on different combinations. You can also use the existing electrical box from the light already installed in the kitchen as a starting point. A wide variety of fixtures available for track lighting will help to add to the look you are looking for as well as being placed to highlight the areas you need the light the most.

Once you select the fixture you will want to align them in a way as to not cast shadows on the work area where you will be working. 

A good example of this would be to place a fixture overhead on the left and right side of the sink. 

In this manner you will not be blocking the light from the work area the way you would if you add a single overhead fixture. You will want to do the same over other work areas such as the cutting area and over the cooktop.

Under Cabinet Lighting


Under cabinet lighting will add light where you need it most. In a lot of cabinet configurations, the upper cabinets will block the light from the areas under the top cabinets. This is the area where a lot of the small appliances such as the microwave, coffee pot, and blenders are located. This type of lighting will also help to illuminate cutting boards and cookbooks for easier reading. Under cabinet lights are available in three different bulb varieties. Fluorescent, halogen, and incandescent. Fluorescent lights will cast a cool white glow under the cabinets. These bulbs are available in several different sizes to help accommodate the lengths of your cabinets.

Halogen lights are available in strips as well as disk and puck style. These lights will cast a warm glow that is not overpowering but will provide a great light to work with. Halogen lights are almost the same ambient light as sunlight. Surface mount as well as recessed fixture are available for halogen bulbs. Incandescent bulbs are also available in a variety of fixtures that will burn smaller bulbs giving you the light you need without producing too much heat. Whichever type of under counter lighting you choose be sure to mount it to the front of the upper cabinets to light up the work area more. If they are mounted closer to the back the fixtures will light up the wall instead of the needed work area.

Recessed Lighting


Most of the recessed lighting you see in the kitchen are standard “can” fixtures with different types of bulbs. These canister lights as they are also known are basically used around the perimeter of a room. They tend to light up walls, floors, and cabinet fronts. The canisters can be installed with different types of lights sockets that can be directed anywhere you need the light. These two types of sockets are known as eyeball and wall washers. 

You can easily upgrade existing canister lights by switching the trim package. You can utilize the same canister but change the trim package to except the different types of light bulbs that suite you the best. One thing to keep in mind is the fact that the trim packages for canister lights are made to fit the same canisters of the manufacturer.

Dimmer Switches


Dimmer switches can be a great addition to any lighting package. There are times when you will not need the kitchen light to be fully bright. If you are cooking, reading recipes, or cutting and chopping you will need the light over your work area. Perhaps you will want to enjoy a nice dinner you can then turn the dimmer down to help create that special atmosphere. 

A dimmer switch will allow you to have general lighting, task lighting, and accent lighting from the same lights in your kitchen. Dimmer switches will add an extra touch of versatility to your kitchen lighting.

Bulb Options


We have many more bulb options today than we have had in the past. In the past our main choices of bulbs were incandescent or fluorescent. They were good for lighting but there were a couple of things that were disadvantages of these bulbs. The incandescent bulbs were bright and put off plenty of light but they also but of a lot of heat. Fluorescent lighting gave us a different type of lighting but at times the bulbs took a few minutes to get started. 

With today’s bulb choices such as CFL’s, LED’s and halogen bulbs we have a brighter and truer colors in light offerings today. Not only do these bulbs offer great lighting they also help us to cut energy cost and save money. 

When you are ready to upgrade the lighting in your home be sure do your research and take a look here for your lighting needs,

Tips for Hosting Thanksgiving Dinner Outdoors

Hosting outdoors can seem like a lot of work, and perhaps a little informal. But the temptations to soak in the fall/winter evenings are temptations enough to at least give it a shot. Not many are keen on taking the risk of hosting a formal dinner with over a dozen guests outside, but if you have dared to make your thanksgiving dinner extra special, then these outdoor tips will surely help you plan a successful dinner.

 Plan Ahead: Planning a thanksgiving dinner requires a lot of preparation as it is, but if you are planning to host outdoors, then you need to start preparations beforehand, particularly if you do not use your yard for formal events. Do you have the right furniture to host the dinner?

You can use kitchen tables and chairs or purchase a few folding chairs to make a formal setting. This bench from decorausa would look great with kitchen or dinner table chairs alike.

It is better to design your table-scape in advance to avoid any last minute hassles. Ideally, you should have the table settings decided on and ready a week in advance. This is a good idea of how to use benches and tables available in the house to plan a formal dinner outdoors.



Lighting:

The right lighting is very important to make sure that you are well prepared to entertain your guests at the dinner table once the sun sets. You can use Christmas lights or candles to create right ambiance, but you will need your backyard to be well lit, especially if you plan to have small kids present. Check out this huge range of outdoor lighting from decorusa.com to find the right ones for your backyard.

Add the Festive Touch No thanksgiving is complete without the right decorations. Make sure you decorate your backyard with lanterns, pumpkins, fall leaves and the rustic hues to make sure it is ready to welcome your guests. You can use the table, trees or bushes or even the walls to add the festive touches.



Use Rentals This might seem like spending extra money, but in the long run it will save you a lot of money. Hauling all those plates and cutlery inside and out can be a daunting task, and purchasing extra for the sake of two to three special occasions a year hardly sounds like it’s worth the investment. There are plenty of items you need to make your thanksgiving dinner a smooth sail, including dinner and dessert plates, coffee mugs, dinner and dessert spoons and forks. And the best part about renting all these is, once the dinner is over, you don’t have a huge pile of dirty dishes for washing.

Have a Backup Plan Any event, no matter how thoroughly planned, is largely dependent on the weather to make it a success, so make sure you have a backup plan in case things don’t go as planned. You should know exactly where the guests will be sitting and dining in case you have to take things indoors. And check the weather report every few hours to be on the safe side. If you are lucky enough to have a backyard, a deck, a terrace or even a small balcony, make sure you make the most of it by hosting this thanksgiving in the crisp, November air. These outdoor tips will help you create the right ambiance the year round.

Simple Thanksgiving Decoration Ideas 2013

Thanksgiving is a festive time of the year. The time when emotions are high and food cravings higher, the turkey, the cranberries and the pies are cooked to perfection. The fact is you want everything to embody the joy, love and festivity of the occasion. And decorations are a major contributing factor to get in the festive mood. Following Thanksgiving decoration ideas will surely spoil you with choice this season:

Pumpkins:

Pumpkins and thanksgiving just go hand in hand. No thanksgiving decorations are complete without these visually and appetizingly wonderful additions. However, you don't just have to resort to placing a few pumpkins at the center of the dinner table or in the hallway. Try to be as creative and unique as possible. You can add small sized pumpkins in a cylindrical glass vase or place them in rustic lanterns along with some scented candles or you can also use a tureen to make a center piece using pumpkins, acorns etc.

Autumn Leaves: The rustic autumn theme never gets old when it comes to decorating for thanksgiving. You can place a washed, cleaned and dried maple leaf on every serving plate or use a huge bunch to make a centerpiece. You can also make garlands using orange, gold or bronze themes. Garlands can be used making acorns, leaves, twigs, pumpkins, ferns and ribbons.

Candles:

No dinner decorations are complete without candles. There are plenty of ways you can add candles for the perfect cozy ambiance. A good idea is to make a centerpiece using all the different candle stands available around the house. The combination of crystal, wood and iron would give great character to a dinner table. You can also add twigs to a fluted vase, fill it with water and float candles atop. Burlap and candles go very well together too. You can use it to wrap the candles or as a runner for a small table and place candles atop. Choose from a wide variety of candle stands from here.

Door Baskets or Wreath: Door baskets or wreaths are a great way of welcoming your guests and giving them an idea of exactly what is in store for them for the rest of the evening. They are not only great for thanksgiving but will look good the entire fall season. You can make wreaths or baskets by mixing up the fall elements using a lot of browns, oranges and rustic yellows. Use dried out leaves and/or barley if you would like a more subtle wreath.

Fireplace Mantle: No thanksgiving decoration is complete without decorating the fireplace mantle. But it is the place which is usually decorated using similar themes. Try not to stick to simple Give Thanks banners and pumpkin placements in front of the fireplace. It is best to follow a theme rather than add a few items to your regular mantle decorations. You can use photo frames to add messages, or place the decorated lanterns or candles on the mantle. Rustic vases and leaves hanging using invisible hanging wire will look beautiful combined with the crackling firewood. This wall art piece or this metallic finials from decorusa would look wonderful on a fireplace mantle along with a few candles.

The trick to acing thanksgiving decorations is to follow a specific theme and to make the most of each space. You can add twigs to the legs of a table or add leaves to the chandelier. Don’t just stick to the obvious decoration spaces but hunt for places that can add character to the festivity. And don’t forget to have fun!
