Approachable Modern Home Designs
(BPT) - Once limited to simplistic, clean lines
and cool color schemes, modern design has evolved
to include sleek, minimalistic looks with gentle,
warm, organic elements. The new "approachable
modern" design schemes emphasize the grace of
nature, respect the strength of simplicity and can
be effortlessly incorporated into any home by
choosing the right accents.
Incorporating metal
Metal accents often serve as the focal point
of modern design. When incorporating metal
into your space, start with the basics: hardware,
faucets and fixtures. If you gravitate toward
warm finishes like bronze tones, choose
accents with clean, minimalistic silhouettes.
Conversely, if you opt for modern finishes with
cool blue undertones like chrome and stainless,
look for hardware with organic shapes like the
Delta Tesla bath faucet that boasts a gentle
silhouette inspired by curves found in nature.
The faucet also provides modern convenience,
with optional Touch2O.xt Technology that
activates the flow of water with a simple touch
or via hands-free proximity sensing.
Complementary accessories
To maintain a modern feel, simplicity is the
key with accessories. Look for a few small items
to work within modern and organic schemes.
For instance, geometric shaped mirrors work
well across from windows to enhance natural
light and a touch of greenery can come to life
in a minimal, white pot.
Balancing color
Choose a neutral, like grey, white or beige,
Let there be light
number of options to consider, such as recessed,
wall mount, chandelier and pendant lighting.
Remember quality of light and placement
are key. If you wish to highlight certain room
features, spot lighting can be incorporated,
whereas skylights work well for added natural
light.
Often overlooked, the right lighting is
critical when creating a space that channels
modern design and homeowners have a

as the primary color in your home to enhance
a minimalistic, contemporary feel. To take a
next step and elevate a home's color palette,
incorporate organic materials such as wood or
slate in dark, rich tones to create warmth and
texture.

Warm
up to luxury bathroom upgrades this winter
(BPT) - Back-to-school and the holidays
aren't the only welcome seasons that arrive
with cooler weather. Fall and winter are also
a great time to make some luxury upgrades
to your home. With children back in school
and holiday guests on the way, you have the
perfect window of time - and incentive - to
make changes to important rooms, such as
bathrooms.
Renovating a bathroom pays off in multiple
ways, and the more you invest, the greater your
potential returns. A luxury bathroom can make
a home more appealing to buyers if you're
planning to resell; in fact, an upscale bathroom
renovation returns nearly 60 percent of your
investment, according to Remodeling Magazine's
Cost vs. Value Report. If you're not selling,
adding innovative, upscale improvements to
your bathroom can enhance your enjoyment of
the room, improve its usability and even help you
conserve water and money.
If you're planning to improve a bathroom
during cooler weather, here are key areas where
you can create a luxury effect with innovative
materials:
Fixtures
Bathroom fixtures account for a significant
portion of a home's total water usage, plus
they're key elements in the room's overall
design. The toilet you choose for your
bathroom renovation influences the room's
water efficiency, and can contribute to a
streamlined, elegant appearance. For example,
TOTO's Vespin II 1G toilet uses innovative
Tornado technology to deliver a powerful,
high-performance flush, using a mere
1-gallon of water. One-piece construction and
CeFiONtect nano-technology glaze mean the
Vespin imparts an elegant look while staying
cleaner and reducing the need for harsh
detergents, which saves money and is better for
the environment.
A Washlet greatly enhances the comfort and
luxury of any bathroom, making the pursuit
of personal cleanliness better in every way.
Warm, aerated water and myriad technological
innovations activate at the touch of a wireless
remote, leaving you more refreshed than you've
ever felt after a bathroom break. Comprised
of specially designed Washlets and waterefficient toilets, TOTO's new Connect System
offers a seamless appearance that conceals the
Washlet's power cord and water supply hose.
New faucets, showerheads and tub fillers
with clean, simple lines also impart a graceful,
luxurious look to a bathroom renovation.
Look for contemporary finishes like brushed
nickel, and high-functioning fixtures that are
WaterSense labeled and ADA compliant.
Flooring
It's easy to overlook the impact quality flooring
makes on a room - until you witness it in
action. The bathroom floor not only needs to
be slip-resistant and durable, but as one of the
largest design surfaces in the room, it cries out
for an elegant treatment.
Natural stone imparts a rich, textured
beauty to flooring, but it's not the only luxury
flooring option that works well in a bathroom.
Textured porcelain that can mimic virtually
any other material, such as wood or stone, and
even sleek, contemporary textured glass tiles
are all upscale options.
Whatever type of flooring you choose, take
the luxury to the next level by incorporating
underfloor heating into your renovation. Thin
heating filaments fit between the subflooring
and the surface material of your choice,
ensuring you'll never again step onto a cold
bathroom floor.
Lighting
Bathroom lighting is essential for safety and
convenience - after all, the room gets a lot of
use throughout the day and night. But aside
from those practical applications, lighting is
also a great way to create mood and underscore
a decorating theme in the bathroom.
Overhead lighting, illumination around
the vanity area, shower lighting and nighttime illumination are key considerations when
planning how you'll light your bathroom.
Imagination and innovation can help you
create a lighting scheme that complements
your overall design. For example, rather than
the light bars typically used above mirrors,
consider sconces on either side of the mirror
paired with dimmable recessed lighting in the
ceiling above the vanity area.
Recessed lighting is also a great way to
illuminate a shower, but it's far from the
only option. Lights at the base of the shower,
inset into the tile work, or even illuminated
showerheads add a touch of luxury.
The arrival of cool weather is the perfect
time to create the bathroom of your dreams
- before holiday guests arrive. What's more,
most contractors have more availability after
summer. You could get a better deal and see
your project accomplished in less time if you
have the work done in fall and winter.

tips for a chef-centered kitchen
(BPT) - Many homeowners with a passion
for cooking desire a kitchen that mirrors those
of renowned chefs. To achieve this, various
design elements and simple upgrades can
be incorporated to create the ideal kitchen
that combines ultimate functionality with
sophisticated style.
Various herbs in 3- or 4-inch pots can
be grouped together in stylish trays to keep
humidity high. For an extra splash of color,
add edible flowering plants to the garden,
such as lavender, lemongrass and violet. These
homegrown herbs can be used as garnishes, to
layer flavor into a dish or even in cocktails for
at-home entertaining.
Faucet makeover
Culinary enthusiasts spend a lot of time
at the sink. A faucet that simplifies tasks is a
necessity and the Brizo Solna Articulating
Kitchen Faucet is a culinary-driven innovation
offering flexibility and control in the kitchen.
Boasting crisp, contemporary lines, the
articulating arm can be adjusted to position
the two-function spray wand at various heights
and angles - extend the arm up or outward to
fill large pots or lower into the sink to reduce
splash during clean-up. Beyond function, its
Scandinavian inspiration brings a streamlined
architecture to any kitchen.
Storage space
Just as great recipes call for top-quality
ingredients, great kitchens need excellent
tools. Maximizing storage is key for those
with an impressive collection of kitchen tools
and culinary essentials. Avoid overwhelming
renovations and make the most of storage
Designated task stations
options by thinking "outside the cabinet" to
fully accommodate needs.
For a crisp, modernized look, arrange pots
and pans in a line on the wall with a linear
rack. Take organization a step further by
incorporating a magnet bar for sharp utensils,
ensuring tools are close at hand without getting
in the way. Store culinary tools and flatware
in expandable drawer dividers to ensure
all cabinet space is utilized and the counter
remains clutter-free.
Inside garden
Bring the outside in with a miniature herb
garden for fresh flavor enhancements when you
need them. Spaces in front of a kitchen window
with natural light are ideal for an indoor garden.
Commercial restaurants work well with
cooking stations for seamless preparation and
execution. Designate specific areas for every
facet of meal preparation to aid in overall
organization and evoke the look and feel of a
five-star kitchen in your home.
In most top-rated kitchens, food preparation
is commonly performed between the sink
and refrigerator to ensure all needs are met
for retrieving, rinsing and chopping. Added
elements like a deep sink and wide counter
space make these tasks efficient and restaurant
quality.
Transforming the kitchen into a chefcentered space is simple with clean,
purposeful upgrades. For additional

Faucet or to learn about other Brizo product

Data
November 2015
shows home fires burn hotter, faster than ever:
How you can reduce risks
(BPT) - While the number of home
fires occurring in the U.S. each year
has fallen by more than 50 percent
since 1977, the ratio of people who die
in home fires has remained virtually
unchanged, based on data from the
National Fire Protection Association
(NFPA). In 1977, deaths occurred in
.8 percent of home fires, and in 2013,
that rate was .7 percent. One possible
explanation for this discrepancy:
home fires now burn hotter and faster
than they did 40 years ago, meaning
victims have less time to escape a
burning house.
or longer for flashover to occur. People
now have less time to get out of a
burning house, even if their smoke
alarms have alerted them to the fire."
"In a series of experiments,
UL demonstrated that the nature
of residential fires has changed
dramatically," says Eric Skare, a
volunteer firefighter in Minnesota and
product manager of fire safety systems
for Uponor. "Flashover - the point
when intense heat causes an entire
room to become engulfed in flames now occurs less than five minutes after
a fire starts. It used to take 30 minutes
* Modern home design is toward
larger homes with more open floor
plans, an arrangement that facilitates
the spread of fire. Older homes were
smaller overall and featured smaller
room plans.
The results of this evolution in
home fires can turn tragic quickly,
Skare notes. "A study by the NFPA
found that a third of those killed in
home fires were trying to escape when
they died," he says.
The UL study cites several factors
as driving the changes in home
residential fires, including:
* Construction materials currently
in use contribute to a faster burn time.
* Today's home furnishings are
made from many synthetic materials
that combust easily, meaning fires have
more fuel.
* In UL testing, modern windows
of all types failed faster than windows
made from older - or "legacy" materials.
In some cases, the time difference
was significant. For example, legacy
windows made of wood with a metal
frame and nine single-glazed panes
failed in about 12 to 16 minutes, while
modern premium wooden frame
windows with two panes of doubleglazed glass failed in about four to six
minutes. When windows fail, they
admit more oxygen into a burning

Keep
the heat in and the cold out this winter:
Tips for a cozy home
(BPT) - Winter this year promises to be
harsh across much of the U.S. The Farmers'
Almanac predicts conditions will be "bitter cold,"
"unseasonably cold," "very chilly" and "frigid" for
states east of the Mississippi River. In a word, brrrrrr!
Autumn is the perfect time to make sure your
home stays warm and cozy, in preparation for
when the bitter blasts of January and February
come pounding. With some simple DIY insulation
projects, you can keep the heat in and the cold out
this winter, while also saving on your heating bill.
Check the basement
One of the first places to check for proper
insulation is the basement.
"Up to 25 percent of a home's heat loss is through
the basement," says Tom Savoy, technical director for
Insulfoam.
Many homes in the U.S. were built with fiberglass
batts between wood wall studs, which is notoriously
leaky, providing a bridge for heat to pass through
the wall, says Savoy. Such insulation can also trap
moisture in the walls, causing a musty basement
smell.
"Even if you don't spend time in the basement, it's
crucial to insulate it right to help manage the heating
throughout the rest of your home," says Savoy.
A simple solution is adding a layer of continuous
insulation to the home's basement walls using rigid
foam boards, such as expanded polystyrene (EPS).
Available in home improvement stores, EPS
insulation is easy to cut and install using standard
tools around the house. Unlike many other
insulations, rigid foam boards are thin and easy to
handle, without messy fibers to clean-up.
"EPS is a professional grade insulation that even
DIYers can install," says Savoy.
To get started insulating your basement, you will
first need to figure out how much insulation you will
need, based on its "R-value." R-value is the measure
of an insulation's ability to resist heat flow, with
higher numbers meaning better performance. A
quick call to your city or county building department
will let you know what R-value is appropriate, and if
you'll need to take anything else into account with
your insulation project.
Take a look in the attic
In addition to insulating the basement, another
leaky area to check is attic hatches. As heat rises,
these hatches often have gaps around them, allowing
the warm air to escape. Properly sealing them with
weather stripping and adding a layer of rigid foam to
the hatch will help keep heat in your living area.
To get ready for the coming shivery weather, the
Farmers' Almanac suggests stocking up on "sweaters,
long johns, and plenty of firewood." Part of your
preparation should also include an easy weekend or
two of adding insulation to your home.

smart home chefs are going green with kitchen design
(BPT) - Home chefs everywhere are taking a new approach when designing
their dream kitchens. Beyond upscale tools and high end appliances, they also
want features that are eco-friendly and environmentally smart. Here are the top
trends in eco-friendly kitchen design.
Green countertops
When it comes to selecting eco-conscious kitchen countertops, home chefs
are getting creative. The greenest countertops are made from recycled materials
such as glass, cement, porcelain and even paper. These products aren't just
environmentally friendly, they are absolutely stunning with complex colors and
upscale designs that fit into any kitchen aesthetic.
Fireplace bake ovens
A fireplace/bake oven combo is a beautiful focal point that is as useful as it
is stylish. Tulikivi soapstone fireplace ovens warm kitchens and provide home
chefs an extremely useful way to bake. Their unique design allows wood to burn
separately within the fireplace firebox or bake oven. The whole stove warms
evenly from top to bottom so no heat goes to waste, plus the aroma produced by
a wood-fired oven gives every meal a delicious finishing touch. Learn more about
cooking with fireplace bake ovens by visiting Tulikivi on YouTube.
Eco-friendly cabinets
Appearance isn't the only thing home chefs are considering when shopping
for cabinetry. Most pressed wood cabinets are made with a resin called urea-

fact, more home chefs are seeking reclaimed
materials not only for environmental reasons,
but also because these materials give kitchen
spaces one-of-a-kind personality. For example,
vintage reclaimed tile is fantastic for creating a
conversation-worthy backsplash that no other
kitchen has. Another option is reclaimed wood
from old barns or schoolhouses, which can be
transformed into noteworthy flooring with a
great backstory.
CHEF | From page 17
formaldehyde, which can be unhealthy.
Buying cabinets made from solid wood helps
avoid this concern. Additionally, cabinets
made from sustainable materials are in high
demand, like bamboo or wood that has been
responsibly harvested. Finally, nontoxic paints
and varnishes are a must.
Greenhouse garden windows
A garden window is a popular option for
kitchens above the sink. Not only do these types
of windows let natural light into the space to cut
energy expenses, they also feature a recessed
ledge ideal for potted plants. That means this
eye-catching window also allows home chefs to
grow their own herbs year round so there's no
need to waste time and fuel running to the local
grocery store. Healthy, fresh flavorings can be
plucked at a moment's notice.
Energy efficient appliances
Appliances alone account for a whopping
13 percent of a household's energy costs.
Refrigeration and cooking appliances are the
biggest energy drains, so it's no surprise that
Smart faucets
green kitchens feature Energy Star approved
appliances. Kitchen features that give more
bang for the buck are in high demand also.
Half of all the energy used in the home goes
to heating, this is why smart homeowners are
using Tulikivi ovens to bake and heat their
homes. These bakeovens store heat in the
thermal mass of the soapstone, a two-hour burn
can radiate heat for up to 24 hours producing
clean, comfortable, cost-saving warmth.
Reclaimed materials
New doesn't always mean the best. In
Today's kitchen faucets have entered the
smart age. More than just low-flow for water
conservation, smart faucets offer additional
ways to go green. Some have motion sensors
so with a wave of the hand they turn on quickly
and then turn off after a designated amount of
time. Home chefs enjoy features like quick hot
to cool temperature changes too, which make
it easy to cook and also save H2O.
The green movement is here to stay and
home chefs are embracing kitchen design that
offers upscale elegance while being eco-friendly.
Consider these trends when you build your
dream kitchen. To learn more, visit Tulikivi.us
or find them on Facebook and Twitter.

care tips guaranteed to save you winter worries
(BPT) - Cooler nights and shorter days
are a sure sign winter is on its way. Smart
homeowners use this time to prepare their
homes against the season's wrath. You too can
protect your property and eliminate winter
worries with a few simple projects that can be
completed in one weekend or less.
Dispose of dead leaves quickly
When all those beautiful colored leaves turn
brown, you know they will soon fall in your
yard. It's important to collect and compost dead
leaves for several reasons. First, leaving yard
waste over winter encourages mold growth,
which can cause breathing problems. Second,
leaves left on the ground can choke out grass, so
you'll have a spotty yard come spring.
To save time, forget raking and invest in a
quality blower. The Husqvarna 125B handheld
blower is ideal for home use, providing high
power with a smart ergonomic design. The
blower tube is engineered to be in line with
the handle, minimizing rotational force on the
wrist. You'll quickly create piles of leaves for
composting without back or joint aches.
Clean clogged gutters
You probably don't give much thought to your
home's gutter system, but when it gets clogged with
leaves, twigs and other yard debris, you'll wish you
had. This organic matter in the gutter clogs up your
roof's drainage system, which can cause water leaks
into your home, or worse, ice dams.
home? Perhaps a branch died over summer is
just hanging there. Trim trees today to avoid
hassles tomorrow. Winter winds paired with ice
and snow can snap branches that can then cause
costly property damage - and since it's your tree,
you'll be on the line for the bill.
Make sure your gutters are clean before
frigid temperatures set in. Using a leaf blower
gutter kit you can carefully clean out gutters and
inspect the shingles for any damage.
Fall is the ideal time to trim trees for winter
to give you peace of mind. For small limbs, a
pruning saw is a great tool. For larger limbs, use
a reliable chainsaw like the Husqvarna 450. The
X-Torq engine means lower fuel consumption
and reduced emission levels, plus Smart Start
allows an easy start every time. Bonus: after
cutting branches and sawing into logs, you'll be
ready with wood for winter fires.
Trim dangerous branches
Do you have braches that have grown
dangerously close to your or your neighbor's

affordable home winterization ideas with big impact
(BPT) - Although you may
prefer to forget, last winter's
subfreezing temperatures may not
be an isolated occurrence. Weather
experts are already discussing
if El Nino and arctic air from a
polar vortex will cause colder than
normal winter weather throughout
the country. Is your home ready to
withstand the chill?
Smart homeowners are taking
time now to prepare their homes for
the harsh weather. Winterizing not
only helps maintain comfortable
temperatures inside, but also helps
lower your energy bill. Fortunately,
some of the improvements that
have the biggest impact are
also easy to do and surprisingly
affordable.
1. Seal gaps and cracks
The average midsize U.S. home
has a half mile of gaps and cracks
according to www.energystar.
gov. Cold air infiltrates through
those spaces causing your furnace
to work overtime. An easy way to
combat the problem is to use Great
a handy switch that controls the
blade direction. During the winter,
set the blades to spin clockwise
to help warm rooms and set to
counterclockwise during summer
for cooling breezes.
3. Eliminate drafty
windows
Stuff(TM) Gaps & Cracks to fill
openings around electrical outlets,
plumbing pipes, doors, dryer vents
and more. Sealing your home takes
just a few hours whether you do it
yourself or work with a contractor.
Visit dowgreatstuff.com/winterize
to learn more.
2. Reverse fan blades
Your ceiling fans aren't just
valuable during summer - they
can help reduce energy costs by
circulating warm air that rises to
the top of rooms. To ensure your
fan is circulating the air correctly,
you need to reverse the blades.
Most modern ceiling fans have
Have you ever felt a draft as you
walked by your window? Gaps
around windows are a major source
of heat loss. Seal out those drafts
with Great Stuff(TM) Window &
Door Insulating Foam Sealant.
This specially formulated lowpressure sealant is easy to apply
and insulates the window without
bending the frame when properly
applied. Another great tip is to open
the curtains during the daylight
hours on south-facing windows so
the sun can help heat your home
naturally. Close curtains when the
sun sets to reduce the chill.
4. Install an adjustable
thermostat
An adjustable thermostat is an
effective tool for maintaining a
comfortably warm home and
cutting heating costs. If you have
one but don't have it set, now is
the time to learn how. By adjusting
the temperature down while you're
sleeping or away, you can save
plenty of money. In fact, by turning
your thermostat back 10 to 15
degrees for 8 hours, you can save 5
to 15 percent a year on your heating
bill, according to energy.gov.
5. Tune up your furnace
If meteorologists' predictions
are correct, your furnace will be
working hard this winter. Make
sure it is working effectively and
efficiently by scheduling a tuneup now. A qualified technician
will check the coils and clean and
lubricate important mechanical
parts. Some utility companies offer
free checkups to customers, so be
sure to ask about your options. In
addition to a tune-up, remember
to change your furnace filter once
a month during the heating season
to maintain proper air flow.

Important
backyard safety steps for all seasons
* Tighten and cover any protruding bolts on
swing sets and do not attach ropes or cords,
which could become strangulation hazards.
(BPT) - From building snowmen with the
kids in winter to playing fetch with Fido in the
spring, your backyard is the backdrop for fun
activity all year long. That means safety should
be top of mind during all seasons. Just as you
take steps to protect your children inside your
house, you must be cautious of the dangers
outside as well.
The first step to keeping your backyard safe is to
assess your fence. Fences help protect children
from danger, keeping toddlers out of swimming
pools, hot tubs and ponds or keeping them in
the yard, away from busy traffic or strangers.
Fences can also help keep your own pets in your
yard, and other animals out. They can reduce
your liability by preventing injuries to uninvited
guests on your property, or injury caused by
escaped pets.
"A good weekend winterizing project is making
sure your fences and gates are functioning
properly and are protected from rust, a
destructive force that can render gate hardware
useless or dangerous," says Jim Paterson, senior
vice president of D&D Technologies, which
manufactures gate latches and hinges made
of ultra-strong engineering polymers. "In our
research, we found that when homeowners
consider their fencing needs, rusty metal gate
* Remove old tree stumps and rocks. Level
concrete footings to avoid tripping.
*Seal wooded features such as decks, swing sets
and picnic tables before inclement weather sets in.
hardware that no longer functions properly
or becomes a threat to children was their top
concern. Rust-free and adjustable gate hardware
is the simple solution."
Seasonal weather, ground settling and other
factors can cause a gate to become misaligned
over time and not function properly. It's
important to have gate hardware that can be
easily adjusted to overcome this. TruClose
self-closing, tension adjustable hinges are an
ideal solution. Some models are vertically and
horizontally adjustable as well. Combined with
D&D adjustable, locking gate latches will ensure
your gate will always function properly.
In addition to checking your fence and gate
hardware, consider these backyard safety steps
for your home:
* Fence in pool and spa areas and ensure
your gate is self-closing and self-latching with
TruClose hinges and Magnalatch Safety Gate
Latch to ensure latches are out of the reach of
children.
* Eliminate access to lawn equipment and
chemicals. Put these items completely out of the
reach of children.
* Keep a first aid kit and a rescue kit for those
backyards with water features easily accessible.
Your backyard can be one of the most exciting
places for your children through the entire year.
A little prevention along the way will keep it safe
and provide wonderful memories for your family.

is coming for your home:
What you can do now
to protect your wallet
(BPT) - It's coming - the white, windy
weather of winter. Are you ready? Is your home?
Now is the time to protect your home and wallet
with a quick window and door checkup to make
needed repairs and reduce costs.
Clear sills and moving parts of dirt and debris.
Debris like sand, dirt or leaves can get caught in
window sills and moving parts of windows or
doors. Clean these areas with a dry paintbrush
to create a tighter seal and enhance window and
door performance.
Check weather stripping. Re-attach or
replace loose or worn weather stripping around
windows and doors. Loose weather stripping
can let cold air in, reducing energy efficiency.
Reapply caulk or sealant around windows
and doors. To help reduce potential drafts
and leaks, reseal areas around windows and
doors that may have been exposed to heavy
weather or extreme sunlight, creating breaks
in caulk or sealant.
Install snap-in blinds or shades. Snap-in
between-the-glass blinds or shades help insulate
your home from cold outdoor temperatures.
Pella Designer Series windows and patio doors
feature convenient between-the-glass options to
add energy efficiency and privacy.
Repair or replace damaged exterior surfaces.
Cracked or deteriorated wood on the roof or
near the foundation is typically associated with
water penetration and may allow moisture or
cold air to leak into your home. Look closely for
signs of moisture leakage and replace damaged
wood. Consult a professional to help correct any
roof or drainage problems around your home.
Install storm doors. Storm doors add an
extra layer of protection and help reduce air and
moisture leakage.
Replace old windows and doors with energy-
efficient ones. If you have single-pane glass or
older windows or doors, you may be paying
more to heat your home in the winter. Replace
them now with energy-efficient, double- or
triple-pane glass versions, such as those offered
by Pella, and made with insulating argon, or
install new durable fiberglass doors to help save
money and energy year round.

Winterize
your outdoor living space in 5 easy steps
5 smart ways to ready
the outdoors for winter
(BPT) - Ahh the backyard - it's served
you well all summer. But now the seasons
are changing and colder weather is on the
way. Which means you need to prime your
property from the ravages of winter. That's
right, it's time to winterize!
Since you can finish your indoor
winterizing as temperatures get cooler,
it makes sense to winterize your outdoor
living space first. With that in mind, here is
a five-point checklist to help safeguard your
home from Jack Frost for another year:
Prep your deck. Your beautiful deck has
been a source of outdoor enjoyment all
summer long, so now it's time to protect
your beloved structure before winter rears
its ugly head again. Of course, the amount of
work you have to put into winterizing your
deck depends on your decking material. For
example, a durable, long-lasting material
such as beautiful Western Red Cedar
requires the least amount of maintenance.
That said, all decks require some upkeep.
So to preserve your deck's luster, start
by cleaning it with a warm soapy solution
and a soft bristle brush (never power
wash). It's important that you remove all

WINTERIZE | From page 23
November 2015
dirt and debris from both the surface as
well as in between the boards during this
process because the more ventilation your
decking has through the colder months,
the better it will look come springtime.
Next, inspect the deck for the presence
of mold. If present, wash the deck with a
mild oxygen bleach solution and leave on
the surface for 30 minutes before rinsing
thoroughly. Finally, remove anything that
might leave marks on the deck's surface
from inconsistent weathering - think
outdoor furniture, movable planters, door
mats etc. As for finishing your deck with a
fresh coat of stain etc., that's really more
of a spring job (i.e. you're off the hook for
another six months).
Protect those planters. These days,
most planter boxes are made with Western
Red Cedar. That's because it's naturally
resistant to rot, decay and insects; and
therefore, doesn't require treatment from
potentially dangerous chemicals that can
leach into your soil and plants. But like
all garden beds, Real Cedar planters need
protection during the winter months. Start
by removing all soil and cleaning the boxes
as you did the deck. Then if possible, store
your emptied planters in a garage, shed,
under the porch etc. If you can't, then cover
them with a water repellant tarp to protect
from moisture buildup - but make sure
you don't seal the tarp. As with decks, it's
very important that you allow for proper
ventilation.
Inspect your windows. Take a stroll
around your home's exterior and inspect
each of your windows to see if any gaps or
cracks are present. If you find some, apply
caulking to the openings and this will
prevent cold air from seeping through these
cracks during the winter, which in turn, will
cut down on your heating bills!
Trim those trees. As you walk around
your house inspecting your windows for
cracks and gaps, this is also a good time
to take a look at your trees. Look for trees
that are old, appear weakened or diseased.
In addition to the trees themselves, you
should also check for any dead branches,
particularly those hanging near or over
your home. As snow accumulates over the
winter, the weight may be enough to bring
a diseased tree or branch down, potentially
damaging your home. You can eliminate
this risk by removing any dead trees or
branches now before the first snow starts
to fly.
Guard the grill. If grilling is one of your
favorite summertime activities, you don't
have to abandon it just because winter's
coming. A Real Cedar BBQ cover can
protect you from the elements, allowing you
to grill all year long. And because the cover
is made from a naturally resilient wood
like cedar, you'll be BBQing in all kinds of
weather for years to come. You can find free
plans to build your own BBQ cover in Real
Cedar's outdoor section.

tips & design inspiration, visit Real Cedar.

easy fall home updates
(BPT) - There are so many reasons to love
fall. From the brisk breeze and color-changing
leaves outdoors, to prepping for the holidays
and watching football inside, there couldn't be
a better time to make a few updates around your
house. Consider these simple fall home updates
to stylishly welcome the season.
monogram to the center of the door. If your
door is metal, glue magnets to the back of the
letters and it will easily adhere to it.
Proper party prep
During the fall, more time will be spent in
the home's entertaining spaces to accommodate
holiday soirees and family gatherings. Increase
the functionality of this room - whether it's
the den, family room, dining room or finished
basement - and encourage guests to congregate
comfortably by adding casual seating. Spice
things up with a mixture of options; choose
decorative stools and poufs, or upcycle vintage
chairs with new, reupholstered seats. The style
of your chairs can vary, but be sure to coordinate
the colors and patterns. When you're not in
party mode, stow away the extra seats.
Paint to please
Throughout the year, our walls can undergo
stress from energetic kids, furniture moving
and everyday traffic. If your home will be busy
during the holidays, welcome guests with a
newly painted entryway, or, freshen up your
family room with a colorful accent wall. Painting
is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to
transform a room, so embrace the season and
try a fall-inspired hue that harmonizes with
your existing space like deep emerald green,
royal purple or burgundy. Deep, rich paint
colors are a top design trend of 2015, so the
bolder the better. To achieve the best results, use
FrogTape brand painter's tape to attain sharp
paint lines. FrogTape is treated with PaintBlock
Technology, which seals the edges of the tape,
preventing paint bleed. To help incorporate the
color of the accent wall into the room, add décor
and accessories in similar shades throughout
the area, such as new pillows in your family
room or a coordinating rug in your entryway.
Clever copper accents
Wow with a refreshed washroom
them from your mantle or use them to dress up
place settings. To extend the life of your metallic
leaves, consider using them as place cards for
holiday dinners. Easily allow guests to find
their seats in shimmery style by placing printed
nametags atop the leaves at each setting.
Freshen up the front door
Group together the season's leaves and
branches to create a unique centerpiece, or
place them throughout the house to bring life
to your living areas. Crafting with fall foliage is
a cinch - simply gather an assortment of thick
leaves, either real or faux - and after they're
rinsed and dried, spray each side of the leaf with
copper paint and leave to dry for a few hours.
Line these leaves up along a table runner, string
Increase your home's curb appeal with a
front door refresh just in time for the fall. For
starters, give your door a new identity with a
distinctive paint color - consider hunter green,
colonial red or cognac. The color of your door
introduces the world to those who live inside,
so choose one that speaks to your family's style.
After you've added personality to your door
with paint, add a final touch with your family's

building to feed the fire.
All these factors contributed to UL test results
that showed how much faster modern homes burn,
and how escape time is much less than in decades
past.
Working smoke alarms in a home are proven to
reduce the risk of injuries and fatalities. Virtually
every construction code in the U.S. requires smoke
alarms in new construction. Functioning smoke
alarms reduce the risk of home fire fatalities by
50 percent, according to the NFPA. A residential
sprinkler system slashes the risks even further - by 80
percent. The U.S. Fire Administration recommends
that all homes should be equipped with both smoke
alarms and sprinklers. And the International
In decades past, concerns over cost may have
kept some homeowners from incorporating fire
sprinklers in their new-home construction or major
renovation projects, but residential fire sprinklers
are now more affordable than ever. In fact, a typical
system represents about 1 to 1.5 percent of the total
cost of new-home construction. For example, a
$200,000 new home would require an investment of
about $2,000 to install sprinklers - far less than the
cost of other, less safety-oriented upgrades, such as
premium appliances or flooring.
Multipurpose systems like Uponor's, which
use durable, flexible PEX piping, reduce costs even
further. Because the home's cold-water plumbing
fixtures are fed from the sprinkler loop, less piping
is required for the installation. And recent approvals
When decorating for fall, don't overlook the
bathroom! A few simple changes can take this
space to new heights. Start by swapping out
your soap dishes and lotion pumps with new,
coordinating options fitting for the season. If
budget allows, replace your everyday towels
with new, plush ones in fun fall colors that add
a pop of color to the room. Next, add candles
with autumn-inspired scents for an aromatic
effect that brings the outdoor aura indoors. For
subtle changes that go a long way, replace your
bathroom hardware including the toilet handle,
cabinet pulls or hinges and towel racks.
The fall season is a great time to revitalize
elements of your home as you prepare for indoor
holiday entertaining. As you choose updates,
make sure they maximize your personal style.

now allow Uponor's PEX piping to be left exposed in
unfinished basement applications, which simplifies
installation requirements even more. Best of all,
multipurpose systems also require no specialized
testing or maintenance. As a result, homeowners
know the system is ready to protect them every time
they use an integrated, cold-water plumbing fixture.
"If you're building a new home or undertaking a
major renovation, there's life-saving value in asking
your builder to install a fire sprinkler system,"
says Skare. "It doesn't have to cost a bundle to buy
yourself and your family more time in case of a fire,
and it's well worth the investment."

5 winter money saving tips for homeowners
(BPT) - The winter can be harsh in
many ways - slick driveways, brisk winds,
heavy snowfall and frigid temperatures.
Unfortunately, that's not all - these weather
annoyances can lead to high heating costs
and energy bills, which can be tough
on your wallet. Instead of handing your
hard-earned money to Old Man Winter,
consider these five simple money saving
solutions.
Out with the cold
Preparing your home for winter, or
weatherizing, is a simple, effective way
to save on home energy costs. Just by
plugging air leaks, you can save up to
$200 per year on heating and cooling
bills, according to Energy Star. A hidden
place many homeowners don't think to
look for air leaks are electrical sockets
and switch plates on exterior walls. A
quick and inexpensive solution to combat
these sneaky spots is to insulate with
Duck brand Socket Sealers, which serve
as a buffer between outdoor air and inside
the home.
Don't throw money
out the window
Heat lost through air leaks around
doors and windows can account for 10 to
25 percent of your heating bill, according
to U.S. Department of Energy. Take an
assessment of your home's condition
- indoors and out - checking for failed
caulking around window frames where air
unknowingly could be seeping out slowly
but surely.

(BPT) - Cooler temperatures and shorter
days can only mean one thing - winter
is on its way. January and February are
typically considered the coldest months
in the Northwest, Northeast and Midwest
regions of the United States. It can be tough
for homeowners to stay cozy inside without
running up monthly heating costs. Building
professionals say fall is the ideal time to
consider winterizing your home for a more
energy efficient and comfortable winter.
Look for simple, affordable
fixes.
There are some simple, inexpensive
measures that homeowners can do to ensure
their homes remain energy efficient, warm
and comfortable. For less than $100, weatherstripping for windows, a door sweep strip
and some caulking can help fill any air leaks
to limit energy loss. Replacing the furnace's
air filter every three months can also help
create a more comfortable environment since
a clogged filter can reduce the unit's overall
efficiency and lifespan.
Set the temperature.
Investing in a programmable thermostat
allows homeowners to monitor the indoor
temperature of their home remotely via a smart
phone or online. Keeping the temperature low
when no one is home and programming the
thermostat to increase the temperature when

is to apply an insulated film to the
windows during the winter months," says
Danny Lipford, host of the nationally
syndicated TV show Today's Homeowner
with Danny Lipford. "For less than $10
you can get enough product to cover three
large windows."
While any film can be a great help,
get the biggest bang for your buck with a
Heavy Duty Window Insulation Kit, such
as those from Duck brand. The plastic
film is twice as strong as standard kits and
is puncture resistant, but still just as easy
to apply. Homes with drafty windows that
use a heavy duty window film as part of
a complete home sealing and insulating
solution can save up to $190 on the annual
energy bill.
Dress the part
The U.S. Department of Energy
suggests setting the thermostat this winter
to 68°F while you're awake and lowering
it while you're asleep or away from home.
By turning the thermostat back 10 to 15
degrees for 8 hours, you can save 5 to 15
your home’s energy efficiency this fall
everyone arrives home, annual heating costs
can be reduced anywhere between 5-15 percent,
according to the U.S Department of Energy. The
same principle can be applied during summer
months to help save on cooling costs.
Prevent ice damming.
If ice damming on the roof is an annual
problem, consider taking measures to
completely stop dams from forming. Major
damage can result from ice damming, so it's
never too early to start thinking about a longterm solution. Ice damming occurs when warm,
indoor air escaping through the roof melts
snow on the shingles. The water then refreezes
as it runs off the roof, creating a barrier of ice at
the edge. Shovelling snow or chipping ice away
can threaten life, limb and roof, so it's best to
consider more permanent solutions.
Keep warm air inside.
While weather-stripping and caulking can
help address air leakage, the U.S. Department of
Energy's Home Energy Saver website says that
proper air sealing insulation and attic venting
are the best methods to stop ice damming
from occurring. Spray foam insulation is a
modern solution that both insulates and seals
to help stop ice damming. Installed by licensed
professionals, spray foam insulation, like
that available from Icynene, works well in all
climates and fills in gaps and cracks to help stop
air leakage as well as ice dams formation.
As a long-term solution, spray foam
insulation helps maintain a comfortable
temperature year round while helping to
control monthly heating and cooling expenses.
Thanks to spray foam insulation's air-sealing
qualities, homeowners can reduce the size of
their heating and cooling equipment since less
effort is required to heat or cool the home.
While air leakage can play a role in higherthan-average heating and cooling bills, a wellinsulated home and economical winterizing
can help you get through the cold winter
months. Homeowners can learn the five easy
steps of selecting the right insulation for their
home on icynene.com.
percent a year on your heating bill.
Instead of turning up the heat, turn it
down and grab a cozy blanket and sweats
or pour yourself a cup of tea to warm you
up. Thicker blankets such as wool and
cashmere will be the warmest, while a
down blanket can also keep toes nice and
toasty. Or, snuggle up with someone you
love.
Rise and fall
It might sound contradictory to common
thought, but running ceiling fans in winter
can actually make a room feel warmer.
Ceiling fan blades spinning clockwise in
the winter actually pulls cool air up, while
blades spinning counterclockwise in the
summer push cool air down.
Room by room
Heat can often be wasted in infrequently
used rooms of the house. To concentrate
the warm air in the areas where you and
your family are spending time, close off
vents in other rooms and keep the doors
shut. Take it a step further and seal off
the attic, a big source of energy loss. Attic
Stairway Covers are easily assembled and
installed - yet are easily repositionable to
allow attic access for those moments you
do need to grab stowed items.
While there's much to enjoy about the
winter season, the freezing temperature
usually isn't one of them. To combat the
cold this year, tackle some simple, costeffective DIY projects that'll keep your
family warm and your wallet full. For more
