To get freshwater, the less harmful water, the more natural and better for the environment type of swimming pool water the number one thing you’ll have to do is to clean, clean and clean again. This means getting out all the bits of dirt and leaves, all the bugs, all the everything that blows into a pool each and every day. So you’ll have to skim all of this out, every day. You also have to clean the liner and underwater surfaces every week if not more often. This means brushing the walls, the ladder, the bottom and then once that’s been done vacuum all of the stuff up to remove all the sediment and anything that can attract algae to grow.

For homeowners who wish to have a fully customizable model, concrete is the way to go. The homeowner can design the shape and size based on their needs and preferences. Designers can provide decorative accents, such as etching, to provide a customized pool. Also, concrete models will last a long time.
The drawback to concrete is the cost. They are more expensive primarily due to the type of materials that are used to construct them. There is also a lot of time-intensive labor required to install them. Adding in customization or intricate design work will also add to the expense.

Open spaces deliver challenges and opportunities simultaneously. Here you are, moved into this new and better home that is open from the front door to the kitchen!
What to do?
On the up side, you can choose your dining area. Get creative and see what area feels like a relaxing space; one that has the best view and some access to the delivery of the food will create an easy flow and feel natural.
This floor plan typically defines the builder’s idea of the dining area by the placement of the chandelier. That’s not a game changer; three screws are all that anchor the existing light to the space it currently. You can move it and add a new light that better suits the new use of the space.
Lighting is easily changed from room to room if you love the one you’re with; or with a replacement if you don’t.
A note of caution; before you rush out to … Read the rest
