WINTER ISN’T OVER YET!!! HERE ARE SOME SIMPLE TIPS TO TAKE THE PAIN OUT OF SHOVELING!!!

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

snow-shoveling1

Make no mistake, shoveling snow in the winter provides a tremendous workout. It works all sorts of muscles and burns calories. If you’re not careful, though, shoveling can also result in severe back injury or, even worse, a heart attack.

► Clearing a driveway or sidewalk of snow requires preparation and proper body mechanics.

► Allow yourself plenty of time to shovel. The activity should not be rushed.

► Dress warmly in layered clothing. But don’t bundle up to the point that your clothes restrict movement. Keep your field of vision clear and unobstructed by objects, such as a scarf.

► Limber up. Do some light stretching (10 minutes or so) before shoveling.

► Find a shovel that suits your body size. A shovel that is heavy or longer than necessary can lead to muscle strain.

► Hit the fresh stuff. Newly fallen snow is easier to shovel than older, packed snow. And keep an eye out for ice patches. Not only can ice cause you to slip and fall, it can also cause you to strain a muscle.

► Push, don’t lift. Keep your shoveling motion steady with few twists and turns. Be sure to push snow forward or to the side, not over your back.

► If you need to lift snow out of the way, bend your knees with legs apart and back straight. Let your legs and arms absorb the stress, rather than your back.

► Don’t let fatigue become a problem. Take frequent breaks to allow muscles to rest. Drink plenty of liquids to avoid dehydration.

► Heed the signs. If you experience chest pain or shortness of breath, stop shoveling immediately.

5 Ways to Make a Small Room Look Larger

Friday, June 4th, 2010

Most houses have at least one small room. While small and cozy works for some, others prefer larger, airier rooms to allow things to look more spacious. Designers get paid thousands of dollars to help clients ‘transform’ rooms, but if you are looking to do-it-yourself, the following tips can help you easily create more room within a small space.

Use similar colors and textures – Using colors on opposite ends of the color wheel breaks up a room and makes each of the pieces seem smaller than one continuous color. As windows often become a focal point, it’s important to use a blind that doesn’t distract from the openness the window provides. Neutral colors are the best bet, blending into wall colors.

Mirrors give the allusion of space – Placing one large mirror on the wall reflects light which makes rooms look larger. A single mirror will also create the illusion of doubling the room. While ceiling to floor mirrors have fallen out of fashion for most, they do expand a room.

Use window treatments to frame a scenic photo or piece of art – Bringing the outdoors in is a popular expression for designers. Using a scenic image that is well lighted, framed with blinds lets people feel they are closer to the outdoors and helps expand a small room. Try to stay away from several small pieces of art as they tend to break up the room and make it feel smaller.

Use window blinds to control light – Windows are one of the best ways to make a small room feel big. Using the proper window blinds can allow light in during sunny times and conserve energy when it’s cooler out or vice versa. If the window looks out onto another building, use window blinds to create privacy but not block out light entirely. The brighter a room the more spacious it feels. Translucent cellular shades or sheer roller shades permit light to pass through but diffuse it so that people on the opposite side are not clearly visible. The shades offer a diffused glow, adding the illusion of warmth.

Think clean – One of the biggest distractions in a room is clutter. The more there is in a room, the smaller it will feel. Create a focal point, whether it’s the window, bed, a sofa or painting and work around that. Keep only what is essential for the room to function. The rest can go.

“There can be a lot of challenges when decorating a room without a designer. It can feel overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be with the right information,” says Chris Stanley of Blinds Chalet.
