Plan for the Most Lively and Functional Living Room Ambiance

Family members assemble for conversation, work, and TV in the living room. Parties and official occasions bring diverse people together. A cozy and elegant interior is to be aimed for. Begin designing the different elements. The intention is to create a relaxed mood that permits mutual give and take while allowing somebody to work if they wish to.

An office table at a corner could facilitate work with the necessary communication and electronic equipment. Some living rooms have a quiet meditation corner to remind of the need for tranquility.

Color Combinations, blends, and contrasts

A neutral backdrop should work very well as a canvas that reveals infinite vistas. Textured wall tiles create wonders. White, tan and gray would go very well with a contrasting bright color like orange.

A set of sparse furniture

Avoid congestion with excessive furniture that prevents ease of movement. Refined items work well in small living rooms. Bigger spaces could accommodate a lavish sofa or two in the center rather than along the wall. An intimate scene for sweet talk is thus created. Carpets define spaces well and make divisions on the floor.

An attractive floor

A pretty and useful floor would be just fine! Glazed vitrified tiles are very durable and non-porous, made of clay, feldspar, and quartz. They will shine on and on, besides resisting stains and scratches. Choose from many designs, some imitating marble or wood.

The Lighting fantasy

Design environments through lighting tricks. Use layers of lighting and install several sources that tally with one another. Living rooms could use a combination of table and floor lighting while accent lights would focus on artwork and walls, mantels or bookcases. A fairy tale effect is quite possible with soft, intimate lighting in amber shades like in shop interiors.

Dreamy Curtains

A lavish scene is created through the clever use of curtains. They could drape the windows and walls, descending to the floor for dramatic impact. Avoid little curtains that make the room appear rather small. Besides, change curtains according to the time of the year or as family members wish.

Printed or glowing curtains, flowers or a decorated darkness, so many options are available. Bright colors like red and yellow to create a zesty surrounding and promote excitement through a play of light with the shades. Make sure that enough natural light enters the room and avoid dark ambiances, particularly during the day.

Will the Raiders Domed Stadium Increase My Market Value?

The development of a $1.9 Billion dollar professional football stadium down the street from your current business location is usually a good thing. There are always those who may garner a real property value increase due to the stadiums location but then realize that the traffic from the new venue may destroy their ability to do business or it may make renting their building to a tenant or tenants more difficult. You can have a huge real property market value uptick and still lose your tenants or lose the utility of your building for its current use at the same time.

Appraisers are always asked “how much of a property value Increase can I expect?” It’s not something that can easily be answered because, as you know, each property is different and each will benefit more or less from the stadium development.

If you own a single-family residential home located 5 miles away from the planned stadium I wouldn’t hold my breath regarding appreciation, the stadium may provide some great entertainment to you if you can afford to pay for it but you will likely pay more in taxes for its construction than you will ever gain from your homes appreciation.

The domed stadium planned for Las Vegas is going to be developed west of Interstate 15 and thus west of the Las Vegas Strip in an area dominated by smaller existing industrial building development.

Thus, it is likely that many industrial properties located near the planned domed stadium site will likely increase in value over the next few years. If you look at other professional stadiuhe dome, but they can’t offer you that many choices. ms, I have, you will find that there are (look at the AT&T stadium in Arlington, TX for example) 30 to 50 restaurants surrounding it. Las Vegas is full of Strip based restaurants but do fans traveling in and out of the dome want to deal with the Strip just to get some food? Yes, they will sell you food inside of t

Industrial land often sells in Las Vegas for a price near $10 per square foot but fast food restaurant ground sells closer to $25 per square foot. There appears to be some upside potential for those willing to transition their properties from industrial to commercial, and much of the area surrounding the proposed Las Vegas dome stadium has already been planned for a tourist commercial use.

Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, MO is isolated from most private development, and the Bank of America stadium in Charlotte is isolated by highways. The Los Angeles Chargers stadium (StubHub Center) adjoins Cal State University and still has nearly 15 fast food restaurants close by.

Properties have to be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and owners have to follow how the areas near the planned stadium are transitioning. If the stadium had been planned for the Strip side of the freeway there would likely have been much less potential for stadium-related development given the relatively high prices from the influence of the Strip, but west of the I-15 there are more possibilities.

The transition of the area away from small industrial users to stadium related uses will offer an opportunity to current owners and to investors who can benefit from locating close to the stadium.

Dilapidation Building Surveys and Their Value

Construction activity can sometimes leave tell-tale effects on adjacent properties that are situated too close to the site. Many reasons contribute to the effects of construction, including poor structural strength and ageing of the existing building. However, contractors and owners of proposed new constructions need to guard themselves from frivolous, false claims of damage to buildings. Dilapidation building surveys help owners and contractors to be armed with evidence from independent agencies that will protect them from exaggerated claims. Here is what needs to be known about dilapidation building surveys and the benefits of opting for one.

Pre-construction inspections

A pre-construction inspection would entail an in-depth analysis of the existing properties, including pictorial proof and thermal imaging of structures. This helps in the preparation of a comprehensive report that documents the structure and the presence of cracks, the extent and intensity of structural weakness etc. This dilapidation survey records proof of existing weakness which can be compared with the post construction conditions. This way, you would be able to determine and assess any damage if occurred because of constructional activity.

Post construction inspections

Similar to the pre-construction inspection, the post construction inspections record the status of the buildings and help in drawing up an extensive comparison to help disprove claims of damage, if any. With the use of latest equipment, including thermal imaging, the exact status of a building and the condition of timber and structures are profiled. This helps in scientifically disproving the claims of damage. At times, damage may have occurred to a certain extent, but the claims may end up being exaggerated in an attempt to receive higher compensation.

Constructional activity and effects on structures in vicinity

Constructional activity includes a large amount of vibration, excavation, soil dewatering and demolition. Depending on the structural condition of buildings in the vicinity and the distance between buildings, it is possible that effects may be felt to a certain extent. Dilapidation surveys not only document and protect owners from unfair demands, it also helps engineers to plan construction better by taking suitable alternative measures to prevent damage to adjacent structures. Architecture and constructional concepts have advanced to levels where it is now possible to greatly mitigate the effects of construction activity on buildings in the vicinity by adopting alternative techniques.

Professional expertise and advanced equipment

Typically, the surveys are conducted by teams of experienced professionals who rely on advanced equipment for collection of data regarding the structural strength or weakness of buildings. Structures may be compromised by termite nests, and timber may actually look good on the outside, while remaining more or less hollow on the inside. The use of the latest equipment, combined with years of experience help inspectors to compile reports that help to document the actual condition of buildings.

It is important to choose teams that are covered by professional indemnity and public liability insurance so as to protect the interests of homeowners seeking such services. The choice of such service providers needs to ideally be influenced by factors such as integrity, professionalism and certification.
