»Posted by on Jul 24, 2019 in Re-screening | 0 comments

A Lanai is a Hawaiian term, it describes a porch out in the open fully furnished with couches and ceiling fans usually designed to keep up with the tropical climate of Hawaii. This inspired homeowners from other temperate zones in the US in areas like Southern California to Florida to make one of their own porches inspired by the Lanai. 

In some climates, a Lanai is screened in order to keep the bugs out or it could have glass or plastic panels that are removable to keep the cooler air out when the temperature drops. Usually though both glass and screen are preferred by many to be installed due to the seasons. Lanai’s are very popular in Florida that’s why Port St Lucie Rescreening also offers to rescue newly constructed or worn-off screens.  

 

The direction of the construction of where the Lanai is facing will also be accounted for. If the Lanai is facing south, it will likely get sunlight for most of the day and be very hot even if the temperature outside say’s otherwise. 

 

There are a lot of benefits with having a Lanai. It’s not just a luxurious addition to your beautiful home it can also serve as a waiting area to receive guests, a relaxation pad, a place where you can have your last-minute budgeted date for your almost forgotten anniversary and so much more! 

 

If you like hosting parties, as mentioned earlier, the Lanai can be your waiting area for guests especially if the party you are hosting is located near your backyard or pool, most Lanais are designed to be near these areas. The Lanai will be a comfortable chatting space for people who don’t want to get in the hardcore party vibe outside just yet, or for people to rest after partying so hard outside.  

 

Rain or shine, the Lanai keeps you protected from getting wet or getting too dehydrated from the heat. With its wide-open windows, you can enjoy the view of your backyard plants and flowers and your pool, facing the backyard which is usually how Lanais are designed.  

If you are looking into fully furnished homes having a space for a Lanai is definitely a good investment for a well-established, luxurious household that emits a somewhat tropical vibe. Having a Lanai, without a doubt, gives you a reputation of having a chill vibe with a tropically fresh atmosphere.  

 

Would you invest in a space for Lanai in your future home? Or if you’re already a homeowner, are you considering renovating a space to turn it into a Lanai? Do you think the Lanai would be worth the price including its maintenance like rescreening and glass or plastic cleaning? All of these questions would only be answered once you experienced a Lanai yourself so why not head to a place where Lanais are a common part of the house, Florida, or go to the place where the term Lanai was coined, Hawaii!

How to Paint Your Home Beautifully

»Posted by on Jul 15, 2019 in Painting Service | 0 comments

Everybody has a dream home. For some people, building that home from scratch is what they want to do. If you’re like that who want to be involved in every step of building your dream home, then one of the things that you must carefully think of is what color of paint you’ll use for it.   

On today’s age and date, getting help is easier because you get it with just a few clicks of the mouse. Information is right at your fingertips. You just have to know where to access this information and how to use it for your dream home project. Here are some tips that may prove to be useful: 

  1. Prepare. 

Preparation is the key to everything. You have to know what it takes to paint your house. Prepare all the tools and materials needed. Make sure that you’re aware of the safety precautions required when painting rooms and other confined places.  

  1. Clean.

Cleaning is part of the preparation process but it’s worth mentioning it again here. Before painting your house, be sure that there are no items inside the room. You run the risk of smearing paint on the furniture if you don’t take them out of the room. You always need adequate space to move around so that you can paint the walls freely.  

  1. Get all your tools ready. 

Before doing anything, be sure that everything that you need is right at your disposal. It’s difficult to look for something when you’re all covered with paint. Put all your painting materials and tools in a basket or bucket. Use old sheets of cloth to cover some of the things that you can’t move out of the room. Seal and tack all spots that you don’t want paint on. After doing all these, make sure that you’re ready for the painting job ahead. 

  1. Choose the right paint color. 

If you’re the one designing your home and choosing the colors, try to pick the one that would work for the other rooms and the furniture in your house. Since this is your dream home, you’re free to add your personal touch to it. Choose the paint colors that are closest to your heart and the one that will make you feel comfortable and right at home.  

  1. Get started. 

Once everything is prepared and the paint is ready, you’re good to go. Make sure that there’s no dirt, dust, or debris from the wall. Apply a single coating of the primer. Wait for it to dry and you’re all set to paint the first coat. Wait for the first coat to dry before applying the succeeding ones. Do note that some paints tend to change its color after two coats. Take extra care when you’re on your third layer. Paint a nondescript corner of the room first to be sure.  

These are the things that would lead you to a well-painted dream home. Of course, you should always consult with the Sunbelt exterior painting experts for help. Better yet, hire them to do the job for the best results.
