The Wrong Wall Mount Can Spell Disaster

June 23, 2018

If you’ve come home with a brand new smart TV that you’ve spent half a fortune on then you’ll be very careful of it for a few weeks at least. You’ll probably rush over to wipe specs of dust from its screen just to keep it looking brand new. Some of us even leave the stickers with all the specs and features on them on the TV just so it stays new forever (don’t do that, that just looks sad). However, what you can do to keep your TV nice and secure at all times is to get it a decent wall mount.

Some TVs come with a supplied wall mounting unit as well, which you can use to mount your TV but they aren’t very secure or even very practical to use. These supplied wall mounts just secure your TV to the wall but since you can’t adjust them, you’ll have a very hard time reaching to the back of your TV to plug and unplug cables in it. Another reason why you shouldn’t just start using supplied wall mounts is because they’re fixed and you won’t be able to adjust your TV’s position.

Do yourself and your walls a favour and get a nice aftermarket wall mount for your TV from this list of the best wall mounts and stands for your TV at Before you can pick a wall mount from one of these, you’ll want to make sure that you pick something that can support your TV’s weight and size. If you aren’t too sure of this, you should measure your TV’s screen diagonally and consult with a store clerk. You should also try and find a wall mount that can support more weight than your TV to be safe.

Mistakes You Should Avoid When Getting a Farmhouse Plan Designed

June 23, 2018

Getting a farmhouse designed is certainly a great move. The good thing is that there are so many places that you can go to in order to get a farmhouse designed, but you should always find the best possible designer that will help you do so. Now when it comes to a farmhouse, there are mistakes that a person can make, but the good thing is that avoiding those mistakes is not a difficult task either. In this article, I will be listing down some mistake that a person must avoid, but before that, you should also have a look at South Africa’s favourite farmhouse designer to have a better understanding about what I am trying to say here.

Not Going to The Professionals

The first mistake that you can make whenever getting your farmhouse plan designed is related to avoiding the professionals. I am talking about architects who have been doing the job for years. I get it, you do have an idea of what should go where, but to bring this idea to life, you are going to need a professional. If you do avoid the professional guidance, you will end up with a jumbled mess.

Trying to Fill Up The Space

Another mistake you can make whenever you are thinking about farmhouse plans is filling up the space. I have seen a lot of people do that, and what they do is just fill up all the space they can get their hands on. This is a mistake because farmhouses are supposed to be places that you can relax easily, and move freely. If you fill up the entire space, it will get congested, and you will realise how it is not worth that much. So, these are things that you must know.
