Hurricane Preparedness: Before & After the Storm

Given the recent events in Texas and here in Florida, what better time is there to talk about hurricane preparedness. That way you and your family will be more prepared to take on the next hurricane, which for Florida happens at least once a year. Check out these helpful tips to help your family before and after a hurricane hits.

Know Your Risk

Families would live on the East Coast, the Gulf Coast, or on an island have the highest risk for the damaging effects of hurricanes. However, there is still a risk for states that are more inland. Both Harvey and Irma continued their path of destruction far beyond Texas and Florida.

Develop Your Evacuation Plan

In some cases, local officials may declare a state a mandatory evacuation which requires locals to leave the area. In most cases, however, evacuations are advised and locals can choose to ride out the storm or leave. When a mandatory evacuation is issued, your local officials inform the public using multiple methods of media to get the message out. This would include the news stations, newspapers, text message alert, and social media.

Flooding

If you live in an area prone to flooding, the best thing to do is buy flood insurance. This will not only give you peace of mind but it will also greatly speed up your home’s recovery if a hurricane causes your home to flood. Hurricane flooding may be a result of a storm surge along the coast plus the heavy rain. This storm surge can leave your home in water up to the roof depending on how bad it gets.

High Wind

Before a hurricane strikes, remove or secure outside objects like trash cans, yard furniture, grills, and tools. It is also a good idea to get your trees trimmed or even removed if they pose a big enough threat. Trees with trunks larger than 6in in diameter should be far enough away from your house so they won’t fall on it.

Generators

Hurricanes can leave you without power for several days and even week depending on the severity. So having a generator to power your refrigerator, fans, and charge your phones is a life saver. Only use a gasoline-powered generator outdoors away from windows so the fumes don’t get in your house. The same goes for camping stoves and grills.

4 End-of-Summer Home Upgrades

For us, in Florida, we don’t have to worry about the summer season coming to an end anytime soon. Technically, summer ends Sept. 22 however, Floridians know that the heat doesn’t get the memo until late November or December. However, now is a great time to get some renovations in before the holiday season comes barreling around the corner.

Vegetable Garden

With the amount of sunshine and rain Florida gets on a daily basis, we are the perfect place to host a garden of any kind. Soon our everyday lives will become bombarded with pumpkin everything. So just because it’s hot outside doesn’t mean you can’t be festive. Planting fall themed vegetables like carrots, cabbage, beets, and kale are a great way to start the fall season.

Patio Funiture

The best time to get patio furniture is during the winter months when no one really wants to be outside. This way you can upgrade your patio furniture for a bargain. Lawn mowers also have some deep discounts in the off season.

Renovate Your Deck

This could be as simple as giving your deck a good power wash and fixing up some loose screws. Give your deck’s structure a close inspection Specifically, look for signs of rot or cracks in the boards. If you find some problems head to a home improvement store or hire a professional. Deck’s need yearly maintenance since they are constantly being weathered down and exposed to the elements.

Install a Pool

It can be hard to find a home in Florida that doesn’t have a pool, but trust us they exist. This would be the perfect time to install one since it is still warm enough to swim. The busy season for pool builds has started to slow so they will be more willing to give you a pool for a discounted price.

5 Hurricane Preparedness Tips

Given the awful events in Texas this past week we are thinking about if something like that happened here. Unfortunately, hurricane preparedness is normally something that we put off until there is a hurricane to be worried about. Typically, hurricane season runs from June to November but it really picks up in August & September. So there is no time like now for homeowners to living in hurricane-prone areas to get prepared. Here are some areas to check in your home, whether you plan on staying to face the storm or evacuate.

Windows

A common belief is that a simple and cost effective way to protect your windows is to duct tape them with an “X.” However, this does very little, if anything to protect your windows from 100+ MPH winds. Experts say the best thing to do is replace all your windows with high-impact glass. However, this can get quite expensive so if you are looking for a more cost effective way to protect your windows, consider boarding them up with plywood.

Doors

If your door is missing a few screws or bolts are not going to be able to withstand the great force of a hurricane. So ensure that your doors are properly installed and secured. Experts recommend installing at least a 1-inch deadbolt to better secure the door. If your door is made of glass, protect the glass section the same way you would for a window.

Roof

If you live in a home that has been newly constructed you are in luck! These homes that are built with hurricane straps or clips, which prevent the roof from being ripped off in strong winds. Even if you live in an older home you can still have these straps retrofitted to your roof.

Yard

Regardless of the wind speed, the National Weather Service warns that trees and limbs can become airborne in a hurricane. The stronger the winds the more likely trees and larger branches will fall on your home. To reduce this risk, homeowners should trim back trees that overhang their house and remove any trees that are leaning or appear unsteady.

Basement/Ground Floor

In Florida, we don’t really have to worry about a basement, but we do have to worry about our ground floor. So as we all know, Hurricanes can unload several inches of rain. In Texas, they were getting upwards of 50+ inches of rain, which is over 4 ft of water. So you need to be sure you have good homeowners insurance and flood insurance to cover any pending disaster. Also make sure to have all your important documents, pictures, and anything you want to keep in a safe place and ready to take with you if the storm requires an evacuation.

Kitchen Designs to Transform the Heart of the Home

If you are a frequent user of Pinterest then you know just how many different kitchen designs are out there and it can seem really hard to pick just one.The kitchen is considered by most as the heart of the home so getting that style nailed perfectly is incredibly important. So we have put together this list of popular kitchen designs that are each quite different but unique.

Classic White

Classic white is truly timeless and it’s a safe bet to wow homeowners. This style is simple, clean, airy, and it gives the illusion that the space is bigger than it is. However, some people argue that this style can look too sterile versus the homey feel you were going for. A good way to avoid this is to add pops of color when you are choosing things like light fixtures, tile, or even bowls and other small appliances.

Minimalistic

If you are a true minimalist than a kitchen that focuses on architecture versus comfort or color could be right for you. This style can feel a bit sterile but if minimalism is your thing then you will love it. This style includes clean line, no clutter, mute colors, and high-tech appliances.

Modern Farmhouse

This style has been made famous by the HGTV show Fixer Upper. This style showcases that casual and stylish kitchen that so many buyers want. Typically, this style includes exposed beams and brick, sliding barn doors, and antique accessories like wooden crates.

High Gloss

In order to achieve the sophisticated-modern look, you might want to go for a high gloss kitchen. This look typically involves lacquer cabinets and accessories in bright colors like yellow, lime green, or stark white. These high gloss kitchens tend to make the spaces look bigger, which is why they are normally featured in one bedroom apartments in the city.

The 6 Biggest Renovation Mistakes

Buying Cheap Materials

It’s not uncommon for people wanting to save a little money when renovating their home. Basically, we want the best quality materials but for the cheapest price and most of the time that doesn’t quite work out. When it comes to materials you essentially get what you pay for. So if quartz countertops are really something that you need in your kitchen then don’t try to shop for the cheapest thing you can find. Instead try to cut corners somewhere else, like maybe helping out with demo or placing tile.

Inaccurate Measurements

If one of the ways you are trying to keep your renovation on the cheap side is taking your own measurements, be sure they are accurate. You would be surprised at how much an inch or even half an inch can ruin the layout of any room. If your dimensions are not equal and symmetrical you will notice and you won’t get the impact you were looking for.

Building a Small Bathroom

If you are in need of a half bath down stairs be sure to get a sink and a toilet that don’t crowd the space. Trying to fit a full-size sink into a tiny bathroom is a recipe for disaster. You can buy low-profile toilets and narrower sinks to maximize the space. Pair that with a bold color or wallpaper and you will be good to go.

Too Trendy

Watching HGTV can spark your inspiration and when it comes to doing your own renovation you may want to pick the same trendy stuff they choose on the shows. However, what people don’t realize is trends fade and sometimes they fade fast. You want to go with a timeless, classic look that fits YOUR style.

Not Going Green

Unfortunately, people like to save more money upfront than over the course of time. So going green is normally not at the top of anyone’s list. Either they don’t know how to go green or they don’t want to spend the money. However, not only will your energy efficient home save you money over the long run but you will actually be ahead of the market. Green homes are becoming more and more common so if you invest in it now your resale value in a few years will be through the roof.

Overbuilding for your Neighborhood

The biggest mistake people make when they are trying to figure out what the payback is going to be is overbuilding for their neighborhood. For example, if you have a $200,000 house and you add a $100,000 addition to it so now you have a $300,000 house in a $200,000 neighborhood.

5 Ways to Make Your Bathroom Look Expensive

The average bathroom remodels costs upwards of $18,000 and that can go up or down depending on what materials you use and how big your bathroom is. However, if you don’t have $18,000 laying around there are still ways you can achieve a luxurious bathroom.

Get Creative With Tile

Now, this does not necessarily mean buying the most unique tile out there. If you get a simple tile and have it laid diagonally this will not only open up the space but it will make your bathroom look more luxurious. In an interview with Realtor.com, Kevin Sawyers a San Francisco based founder of Sawyers Design states that “material selections are very important, but how you use specific materials is paramount.”

Classy Containers

One easy way to class up a space is to get rid of all the things that make it look cheap. So we recommend rehoming all of your drugs and toiletries into nice mason jars, glass bottles, etc. Something to get rid of the ugly branding in the bathroom.

Think Expensive But Spend Less

Copper and brass have made a comeback in a big way because they add warmth and elegance to a space. In an interview with Realtor.com, Cecile Starin a San Francisco designer said: “The gold of yesteryear, which had a more greenish base, looks dated now… but fixtures in brushed gold in sleek shapes look warmer, new, and fresh.” In order to achieve this look with out spending a ton is to get metallic accent pieces like soap dishes, toothbrush holders, trash cans, and bowls. They will add the same effect without costing nearly as much.

Oversized Wall Pieces

Another great way to add luxury to your bathroom is to choose a large mirror with an interesting style or shape. An over sized mirror that extends all the way to the ceiling is a great way to make a statement and add some drama. If you have the wall space, another good addition is some oversized artwork. Just be sure that the artwork is framed correctly to prevent moisture from getting in.

Upscale Shower Curtains

An easy way to class up the bathroom is to change out your shower curtains. However, shower curtains can often look cheap, so we suggest looking at regular curtains meant for a bedroom. There are more styles and they are made with a better material so they will add a luxe factor to your bathroom.

How to Naturally Kill Weeds

Florida is infamous for two things: insects and unpredictable rain storms. Just a few days ago we had a tropical storm in the morning and sunshine in the afternoon. Basically, we get a lot a rain in the summer, and with that much rain and sunlight chances are you are going to spending a lot of time maintaining your yard. Now everyone loves a lush green yard but weeds normally come along with that and they aren’t so great. So here are some ways to keep the weeds at bay in a way that is good for the environment.

Herbicides

Traditionally this what is used to fight the war on weeds. However, recently concerns have popped up in regards to if these chemicals were harmful to our health. The Environmental Protection Agency does ensure that all pesticides are safe and do not affect our health. The biggest risk into the person who is mixing the pesticides because they are most dangerous in their concentrated forms. So you only have to really worry about the health effects if you are doing the mixing.

Natural Alternatives

If you would prefer just going the natural route there are several ways to kill weeds without all the chemicals. There are some recipes online containing things like vinegar, cornmeal, and salt. However, these methods are usually not effective long term. There are some techniques that you can use to keep the weeds at bay.

  • Crowd out the bad! The best way to keep weeds from overpowering your yard is to keep a healthy yard. By using proper lawn maintenance habits like keeping your mower blade sharp and mowing in the morning and evening are good ways to keep a healthy yard. This, in turn, will help prevent weeds from sprouting.
  • No Bare Patches. If you have spots in your yard where the grass is dying and there is slowing a bare patch forming. Weeds are known to spout fast in these areas, so get the grass growing again as soon as possible.
  • Proper Watering. The best way to avoid weeds is to water for longer periods of time. If you water in short bursts this causes short roots which is the best condition for weeds to grow.
  • Handpick Weeds Correctly. Hnadpicking weeds is an obvious way to get rid of them. However, there is a right and a wrong way to doing this. The goal is to remove the entire root to ensure that the weed doesn’t grow back. So remove the weed slowly as to not break the root.

4 Creative Kitchen Island Ideas

The kitchen is often labeled the heart of the home and therefore the kitchen island is the natural gathering place. Kitchen islands have boomed in popularity over the years because they provide additional counter space and storage. They also come in a variety of different sizes and materials to accommodate your floor plan and style. We are going to go over some different styles of these islands to showcase just how different and useful they can be.

Built-in Booth

When an island is typically built, stools are typically the direction most people go in. However, you can design your island to have a built in booth. A kitchen island with this kind of seating creates a cozy gathering spot for family meals.

Homework Station

With a two-level designed island, this provides the perfect place for your kids to do their homework while dinner is being made. The only downside to this design is the clutter. With this island being a homework station clutter is inevitable. So the best thing to do it find a place to stash notebooks and school supplies that isn’t on the countertops.

More Storage

Everyone needs more storage in the kitchen. An island is a great place for extra drawers, shelves, wine racks, or glass-front cabinets. You can also install a wine fridge into your kitchen island. This will give you extra space in your refrigerator and give you a temperature-controlled environment for your most prized bottles of wine.

Cooktop or Sink

Beautiful Custom Kitchen Interior in a New House.Depending on your preference and design style you can choose between a cook top or a sink to be placed on your island. You can also add a grill or griddle on the island and use the main stove’s burners for regular pots and pans. Having an extra cooktop would be a great addition to a family who hosts Thanksgiving, Christmas, and other family gatherings. On the flip side, having an extra sink installed on the island could also be a huge bonus. In one sink you could be washing lettuce while the other is filling a pot. If you are big into cooking gourmet meals and you are really looking for a proper chef’s kitchen, either of these options would work for you.

Wood Paneling Makeovers

If your home feels like it got suck in the 70’s because of the wood paneling on the wall, you have probably had several dreams or ripping it out. However, that can get quite pricey. Luckily for you, there are a few ways to make your home fresh that don’t involve quite as much work.

Paint or Whitewash

One of the easiest ways to freshen up any room is a good coat of paint. Many design experts agree that by painting your wood paneling white you bring new life to your room. It also gives it that cottage- feel that so many homeowners are after. If just plain white paint sounds a bit boring you can also opt to whitewash them. To create this look all you have to do is water down your paint. This causes the wood grains to show through and give a nice modern rustic feel.

Turn the Wood Panels into Regular Walls

So instead of ripping out the wood paneling to replace it with regular drywall, you will use drywall to disguise your wood paneling. This process requires a little more work and patience. If you get some drywall compound at a local home improvement store, you can use it to fill in the cracks your wood paneling creates. Once you sand, prime, and paint you should end up with walls that don’t remind you of wood paneling.

Cover Up & Hide

Another great solution to updating your wood paneling is to simply cover them up with art and shelves. By creating a gallery wall, with art hung salon-style, large mirror, and/or sculptures can distract from the wood paneling. You can also cover up your walls with shelving, bookshelves, or ceiling to floor curtains can also get the job done.

At the end of the day, there are several ways to get the look you desire!
