The water can fade the color, leave stains and even cause it to swell and expand. For this reason, it is important to learn how to protect wood from water.
The first measure of protection is, of course, prevention. Dry spills and drips immediately, keeping rugs, mats and coasters around, and keep away liquid substances are good preventive measures to protect the wood from water. If you can prevent water from reaching the wood surface, no damage.
Today we give you some great tips to generate light environments. If your house is rather dark and you want to bring some natural light.. here we leave these suggestions to be use as a great utility.

For more clarity we still choose light colors for walls and furniture in general… think these colors, such as white reflect natural light. If you do use dark colors in areas that are not facing a window.
Every home owner wants to be proud of their living area. As the old saying goes, your home is your castle, so those who pride themselves on the appearance of their house know that perfection is essential. Whilst décor has to completely match, and furniture has to be positioned perfectly, other smaller and subtler features need to be carefully considered too.
Without consistency throughout the house, a home can look miss-matched and poorly looked after. Whether a room is painted in an entirely different colour to another is irrelevant but little features and mechanisms need to be similar to provide a sense of completion. If light switches are chrome in one room and white plastic in another, the whole home will lack consistency.
Door handles are the perfect way of adding that finishing touch to a new or recently decorated house. Whether they are wooden, chrome, brass or even leather, a room will appear completed, adding sophistication and character. Handles can make a statement and give guests and visitors an insight into your personality and tastes.
Before purchasing your finishing touches it is important to shop around. There are many designs, colours and materials available and all need to be carefully considered before buying. Browse online retailers and clearance sales if you are working to a budget.
Popular choices of door handles include brass and chrome. Both are visually pretty and can certainly help finish off any room within the home. However both of these choices require regular cleaning to ensure they stay in pristine condition.
Porcelain, glass and stainless steel handles can also be found. These are ideal choices for those who require an elegant finish to their décor. Again cleaning is essential but the visual satisfaction gained after the task is worthwhile.
However, if regular cleaning and polishing is not really your idea of the perfect finish, why not go for leather handles? These unique designs are also worth the investment. As with most leather, they tend to get better with age. As the leather becomes worn, the visual appeal of the handles does not suffer. They, instead, become a classy addition to your home.
Choosing colours for your handles is also important. Remembering how often these handles are going to be touched is vital. For instance, white handles will become dirty, scruffy and tatty if they are used regularly and are poorly looked after; whereas black handles will appear clean, tidy and sophisticated for a longer period.

Obviously, you want to choose colors that you’ll be happy with for years to come—no one wants to keep having to re-paint the interior of their house or apartment every couple of years.
But how do you know that you’re picking the best paint colors for your home? Following are three tools that can assist you in doing just that.
With Colorjive, you can sign up for a free account, then upload a photo of the room you’re thinking of painting. The program has thousands of colors for you to experiment with, and you can save up to three pictures with the three colors you like best.

While this relatively small number of images doesn’t ensure that you’ll find a room identical to the room in your home that you want to paint, the tool will at least give you a good idea of what a particular paint color would look like spread across an entire room. After you’ve decided what colors will work the best, you have the option to save, print, and email your creation.
The pros: Free of charge, thousands of colors to choose from, high quality sample images.
The cons: Can’t own images.
