Here they share a Regina renovation tip on Flooring ideas!

 

Now a days the options for flooring are endless. From tile to hardwood, laminate to linoleum assorted colours and pricing, the choices can be overwhelming for some home renovators. Before making a final decision we recommend considering what treasure might already exist in your home hiding beneath the current flooring.

Refinishing your floors isn’t always a viable option and it takes more time and effort then replacing but the end result can be spectacular when it’s finished. In our own personal renovations we have replaced floors and refinished. Below are a few pictures of floors we have refinished in our own home just to give an example of what may be possible....

Check out the before, during and after!  

 1. BEFORE - Ugly Carpet ...we wondered what was underneath.  

2. Carpet ripped away reveals badly stained floors with potential ..

 

3. Careful sanding evens out ridges and removes stains

 

4. Nearly done ...back to the bare boards ..before staining..

5. AFTER - we went for a dark stain and we are thrilled with the end result!

 

 

Just For You Day Spa Trusted Regina Spa - Tip for beautiful Gel nails and some French Manicure ideas!

Trusted Regina spa share a Trusted Tip on Nails!

 

Cool variations on the classic French manicure

At one time or another most Women will have had a French manicure ....but if you prefer to cause a bit of a stir here are some edgy options to consider! 

The Sideways stripe :

To pull it off at home follow the same steps as you would a regular French manicure (personally, I like good ol' fashioned Scotch tape to create a straight line) but paint the inner sides of each nail, instead of the tips, once your base coat is dry. This nail art idea is all about experimenting with color. Personally, we love sweet pinks, purples, blues under darker jewel colors and black, as seen above.

 Blingy platinum French nails for the newly engaged:

This is a pic of Jessica Biels nails - They're shiny on the tips and matte down below. Isn't this a cool take on contrast nail tips? And for you flashier types, what a fun way to accent a newly acquired engagement ring! (Vs. the nude manicures many new fiancees choose.)

Go Dark

Instead of Pink nails and white tips change it up for something unexpected - we love this French polish with a difference that we found on  Pintrest !!

 

You can take the idea and instead of matt on shiny black , you can do dark grey nails and black tips...here is the end result below, i think you will agree that they are GREAT fall / Winter nails !  


Trusted Regina Electrician shares a Tip on Carbon Monoxide and it's dangers

CO2 Detectors

According to the Journal of the American Medical Association 2,100 people die from unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning each year in the United States. It is the number one cause of poisoning deaths in the United States. It is colorless, tasteless, odorless and absolutely preventable. Is your home protected from carbon monoxide poisoning?

 

People who are unconscious due to inebriation or sleep can die before they ever experience the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning. In addition, depending upon the levels of carbon monoxide in the air you can die within minutes or hours. A carbon monoxide detector will alert you and your family when there is a risk of being poisoned.

What are the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning?

The initial symptoms can feel like the flu without the fever. Look for warning signs like:

  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Light Headedness
  • Sleepiness Fatigue or Weakness
  • Irregular Breathing
  • Vomiting
  • Shortness of Breath
  • Confusion
  • Chest Pain
  • Food Poisoning

 

Monitor dangerous levels of carbon monoxide in your home with a carbon monoxide detector

 

Sources of carbon monoxide:

Carbon monoxide is found in many household appliances like gas ranges or stoves, gas clothes dryers, water heaters, furnaces and gas or wood fireplaces. Carbon monoxide can also be produced by fuel burning space heaters, exhaust from cars, gas or charcoal grills, and clogged chimneys or flues. If items like these are in poorly ventilated areas, carbon monoxide can build up. Before you know it, you’re surrounded by toxic air that will poison you if you inhale.

How can I prevent carbon monoxide poisoning?

  • Have CO detectors installed in your home. At a minimum, have one installed on every level of your home and outside each bedroom.
  • Change the batteries in your CO detector every six to twelve months.
  • Look for Underwriters’ Laboratories or the American Gas Association seal of approval when purchasing gas equipment.
  • Have your gas appliances checked by annually.
  • Do not use flameless chemical heaters indoors or in enclosed spaces. They burn gas and will allow CO to build up to toxic levels.
  • Have a service expert repair any gas appliance that is not functioning properly.
  • Be sure to open the flue when enjoying a fire in the fireplace or furnace.
  • Do not use a gas oven to heat your home.
  • Do not run a generator, vehicle, or other fueled motors inside. Even if the garage door is open to the exterior CO can still build up to toxic levels.
  • Only use grills outside in a well ventilated area.
  • Use battery-powered heaters when camping.
  • Keep all gas appliances properly adjusted and use an exhaust fan where appropriate.
  • Know the difference between the sound of your smoke alarm and you CO alarm.
  • If you cannot afford a CO detector contact your local fire department. There are programs to help the elderly and the poor.
  • Putting you or your family at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning is senseless.


Trusted Regina Realtor and Regina Real Estate Expert shares a tip on buying

 Regina Real Estate Tip

Buying?

Let me help you every step of the way. When purchasing a home, you are faced with a multitude of decisions! The primary one is whether you are actually prepared to purchase a home. Locating the perfect home is not always an easy task, and obtaining a mortgage loan can be a complex and tiring process. Although, once you have determined that you are ready to move forward with the required effort towards your home-purchasing goal, the rewards are unquestionable.

While at your side each step of the way, I will make the process of purchasing a home easier, more enjoyable, less time-consuming, and less expensive than if you undertook this challenge on your own. will help you prepare so that sellers perceive you as a preferred buyer, help you locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications, and help you through the myriad of details attending the actual purchase. I am always familiar with the current homes on the market, and I know neighborhood values well, so I can help you determine which properties are fairly-priced and in good condition before you start your search.

Your First Step

Your first step to buying a home is to first ask yourself why you want to buy a home:

To stop paying rent? To start building equity? To have a place of your own? To raise a family? To entertain business associates? To move up to a bigger house? Next, list what kind of home you'd like and where you would like to be. Be specific. Separate the "must haves" from the "want to haves." Think of yourself as zeroing in on a target, going from the general to the specific. Consider area (city, suburban neighborhood, country); community (north, south, east, or west side); neighborhood (older and settled or sparkling new; a particular school zone; recreational facilities; and other community services such as transportation, day care, library, stores, entertainment). Ask yourself how many minutes you are willing to commute to work.

Think about home styles. How much space do you need? Does your situation require a one-level home, or are stairs acceptable? Consider size and kind of property. Do you want a newer home, or maybe an older one to fix up? Someday you or your heirs will want to sell. Consider how long you expect to live in this particular home.

 

Your Next Step:

Loan Pre-Qualification Once you have addressed the above needs, your next step in the purchasing process is to get pre-qualified with a mortgage company. This can be done over the phone or even online in a matter of minutes. Call me and I will refer you to a mortgage professional that has an excellent reputation and track record for successfully acquiring loan approval for his/her clients.

I have the best possible resources and communication systems available today to help you locate the homes on the market that match your specifications. You can even search my listings here at my website.
