Some of the most frequent complaints one hears about log homes, especially older models, is the lack of storage space and small closets or bathrooms. This is most often the result of poor planning or not taking into consideration the diameter of log walls and the lack of attics in most log homes. Refer to your list when discussing details with your designer and remember that in most cases you cannot build a closet or a bathroom that is too large.

You want to find something that is sturdy and that won’t crumble or allow your tiles to slide or pop off the floor. Also consider the color of the grout, choosing something that will match the tiles and other items in your room, while looking good and not becoming too dirty or fading over the years. With a little planning and shopping around, you are likely to find the perfect tile floor. The fact that tile has been used for centuries is a testament to the durability, beauty, and versatility of tile flooring.

These stones, just like wood, have the tendency to bring about the natural ambience within the house. In their polished forms, these stones provide the perfect backdrop for all kinds of decor. The color may depend on the user’s choice, but the use of white in natural stones beats all the other colors in terms of compatibility. The white background on the floor allows the use of any decor in the room. Consider the use of Victorian furniture carved out of wood and polished to perfection. What better place to put it in than on a Carrara White Marble floor that has got the impeccable looks of luxury and suave? The looks might remind you of the white backdrops of an art gallery. You can have paintings in the room or have the log furniture installed. There is something about the use of white marble that brings about a sense of clinical cleanliness and broad spaces in the room.

By and large, almost any residential floor plan can be adapted to a log home, but there are substantial differences and considerations that need to be addressed. One such example is that of room dimensions as they relate to the diameter of the logs you will be utilizing. A custom handcrafted home made from 20\" diameter logs will have a different footprint than one requiring 6\" milled logs. If this is the first time you will be dealing with a log home manufacturer or architect, make sure you are comparing ’apples to apples’ when discussing interior dimensions. If you want a room to be 14’ wide, make certain that your designer knows that you want the interior of the room to have 14’ of open clearance and not measured from the center of the corresponding logs. Using the example above, your 14’ room could shrink to 12’ if such presumptions are not understood.

Most white paints could be used for this process. All you need to do is apply the paint in such a way as to let it sink into the grain of the hardwood. This is the only way to get the best results from this lightening process. A little more research will tell you more about this process.

Remember that the floor plan includes details not only about the spacing of the rooms inside your home, but also the orientation of the home on your land and any outdoor structures or landscaping to your garden or surrounding land. Commercial floor plans therefore might include verandahs and even pools to complement the main structure. If you choose to create your own flooring you might want to talk to your house builder about how much space can be allocated to a garden or backyard play area for children. They will be able to provide advice on the most convenient organisation of your home, including the placement of essential features such as driveways, garages and entryways.

Adding an extra foot (or more) in the height of your basement ceiling is much less expensive than adding an additional floor or expanding the overall floor plan, and the added height will eliminate that closed-in feeling you get with so many basements. Adding or enlarging dormers is another way of capturing space from a second story or loft that is framed by a sloping roof line. You will be surprised how a well-positioned dormer can make a small loft appear much larger and provide vertical walls to accept seating, bookcases or tables that usually will not work with a conventional knee wall.

To ensure superior cleaning results without using too much water, it would be best to switch to hard tile floor cleaners that generate dry steam. The low moisture content, as low as 5 percent, ensures effective cleaning of grout without posing any threat of damage to the grout surfaces. Tiled floors in kitchens, restaurants and food processing facilities generally feature high concentrations of germ and bacteria buildup. Scrubbing or the use of sanitizers may not always help eliminate germs. Thankfully, the hot steam generated by tile cleaners helps eliminate germs, mold, mildew, and bacteria from floors. Powerful anti-bacterial technologies in high-grade hard surface cleaners ensure the elimination of up to 99.99 percent of the most dangerous pathogens from tiled floors.
