Baby Proofing Your Brand New Home

baby decorCongratulations, there’s a baby on the way! Now that you’re expecting, it’s time to get prepared for your little bundle of joy. One important step is to ensure your home will be safe before the baby arrives because they’ll be moving around before you know it.

Baby proofing your home involves removing all potential dangers your baby may encounter. When it comes to getting your new Beazer home ready for baby, some steps are more difficult than others. Be sure you are prepared now so that you can relax once the baby arrives.

Importance of Baby Proofing Your New Homebaby proofing new home

You will be amazed at how much danger your baby is exposed to while in the comfort of your own home. The key to baby proofing is to make sure your baby is safe. However, oftentimes we don’t take into account that baby proofing your home also helps to ensure your baby is comfortable, and able to move around the house without having any accidents. As a parent, you will have peace of mind knowing your home is safe for your baby.

Important Areas To Consider When Baby Proofing

  • Bathroom: The best way to baby proof your bathroom would be to consistently keep the bathroom door closed. However, this may not always be possible as sometimes you are bound to forget. Therefore, take extra precautions by installing safety locks on all toilet lids to ensure that even if your precious baby finds a way into the bathroom he/she will not be able to access the toilet.
  • Electricity: Babies are naturally very curious and so it is not uncommon to find them poking their little fingers into electrical outlets. To prevent your baby from having a serious accident with electricity, cover all of your new home’s outlets.
  • Doors: Once your little one grows tall enough to reach the door knob and walk around on their own it becomes harder to keep an eye on them.  Be sure to put child proof covers over your new home’s door knobs so that your baby can’t escape into other rooms, or worse, go outside alone.
  • Glass: Your baby will love to crawl throughout the house, touching items along the way. Be sure all glass and ceramic knickknacks are displayed on shelves located high up, out of your baby’s reach.

What To Consider For House Hunting Success

The prospect of finding a new home is exciting, but the house hunting task should be approached with some degree of preparation.  Before you begin the search for the perfect property, take the time to define what it is you want in a home.  Here are some suggestions that will help to give your vision a little clarity, and ensure you use your time efficiently, only considering properties that are really a good fit for your needs.

Location Matters

One of the first points to address is what part of town you would like to call home.  Think about which neighborhoods would provide the range of features that you like.  Maybe that means being close to your favorite restaurants and shopping.  Or, would it be nice to live close enough to work that you can avoid the nightmare of rush hour traffic?  Perhaps you want the new home to be located within a certain school district or even close enough to the school so that your children can walk with ease.

Size and Layout

Choice PlansBefore you start house hunting, consider your family’s needs in terms of square footage for common areas like the living room, den, kitchen, and dining room.  These areas of your new home will likely be the main gathering places for the family, therefore it makes sense to ensure they are large enough for everyone and your furniture.

The general layout also matters. Perhaps you prefer an open floor plan with fewer walls making rooms feel larger. Consider how many bedrooms it would take for every family member to be comfortable. Do you need a guest room or in-law suite? Or maybe a loft? With Beazer’s Choice Plans you can personalize the kitchen, master-bath, and secondary areas based on how you want to live in them, for free!

Also think about the number of levels that will be best for you in the present and the future. If you’re an empty-nester looking to retire and live the rest of your life in your new dream home, you may want a house that is all one level. If it’s important for you that the living spaces be on the first floor, and the bedrooms on the second, make note of that for your home hunting checklist.

Nashville Back Porch

Outdoor Living

Not all of your concerns focus on what is happening inside the home.  Take the time to consider what you would like in terms of the yard.  Perhaps you like the idea of a smaller front yard that is mainly ornamental, and easy to keep up.  At the same time, you may want a larger back yard that has plenty of room for your kids and pets to play. If outdoor living is something that is important to you, be sure you’re hunting for houses that include a porch or a deck. Some homes even offer outdoor fireplaces or kitchens.

A new home is a major investment.  Take your time house hunting and decide exactly what you want in terms of location, size, and layout.  With some patience and planning, your next home can be your dream home! Read reviews by Beazer homeowners who did just that. Then, start the house hunting process on our website.

Cleaning and Caring For Your Kitchen

As home design modernizes and stainless appliances and granite counter tops gain popularity, it’s important to understand how to properly care for these kitchen upgrades as they take a little more tender loving care then your standard kitchen appliances and counters.

Cleaning Stainless Steel Surfaces

Stainless steel can begin to look unsightly with streaks and finger prints if not cleaned.  Bringing them back to life, however, is a little trickier than you may think. These simple steps will keep these shiny, silver appliances looking new:

1)    You will need the following supplies on hand:
•    Liquid dish detergent
•    Several microfiber cloths
•    Mineral oil or baby oil

2)     Just like a piece of lumber, stainless steel has a grain in it. Find the grain and with cleaning solution applied to a microfiber cloth begin rubbing the surface of the stainless steel in the direction of the grain allowing for the cleaning solution to soak into the grain and remove dirty deposits.

3)    Once you have thoroughly cleaned the surfaces of your stainless steel the next step is to apply a thin coat of oil. Mineral oil or baby oil works fine. Don’t be tempted to buy expensive, commercial cans of stainless steel cleaners. Again, find the grain of the surface and using a microfiber cloth, begin rubbing in the oil along the grain. Once completed you should have a clean factory finish.

Caring for Granite Surfaces

While granite is one of the densest and hardest of stone surfaces, great care still needs to be taken to ensure that it lasts for years to come. Because granite is a stone, it is still somewhat porous and not impervious to staining and absorption. Keep this in mind before you start the cleaning process. First, test the surface with a drop of water. If liquid does not bead up, your granite may need to be sealed to keep it from absorbing liquid cleaners. This should be done once per year. Here are some tips on protecting your granite surface:

•    Don’t use acidic, citrus-based cleaners, vinegar, or ammonia
•    Avoid scouring compounds as they will scratch the surface
•    Use trivets when sitting hot pots and pans down to avoid surface discoloration
•    Use a mixture of baking soda and a small amount of water to try and lift mild stains

To avoid having to do an extensive cleaning on your granite services, the best way to keep your counters clean regularly is to wipe them down with mild dish detergent and water using a soft microfiber cloth. And, whenever you have a spill, clean it up quickly. Trying to use a variety of cleaning products overtime may cause more harm than good.

One of the many exciting steps in your home building process with Beazer Homes is your appointment with the design team. This is where you will have the opportunity to select the type of appliances, counter surfaces, fixtures, and more that will be incorporated into your brand new home. For more information on Beazer’s five simple steps that will lead you to your dream home please visit our website.

The Many Possibilities For Your Home’s Loft Space

A blank loft space adds a variety of extra room possibilities in your new home. Don’t let the valuable living space that a loft provides go to waste without having a designated purpose. With a bit of brainstorming and some revamping, you can have a space ready for you and your family to use, enjoy, and create memories in. Here are just a few of the many possibilities for transforming your loft into the perfect living space:

•    An adult game room is the perfect place for gathering with family and friends. You can make your loft space a grown up play area. Bring in a pool table and add a large screen television with the latest video gaming equipment. A dartboard is an easy addition, and can be played with fewer participants, allowing you to have fun in your loft even when you don’t have visitors. Consider adding a small bar for convenience to refreshments.

•    If you have younger children, a playroom is a good place to organize all their toys in one location. You can make your loft colorful and educational. As the kids grow, so can your space. Over the years transform your loft into a study or lounge area for your kids to utilize.

•    A teen lounge is great if you have teens or pre-teens in the house.  Your homes loft space becomes theirs to gather with friends, perfect for sleepovers, hanging out on the weekends, and to use as a study on weekdays.

•    If you love being creative, transforming your loft into a craft room is a great choice. With some well-designed shelving and plenty of table space, you will have all the room you need to spread out and conquer those do-it-yourself projects you’ve always wanted to complete.

•    Guys like to have their own space to kick back with friends. Making a man cave out of your new homes loft space is a great solution. That room becomes his to do with what he pleases. It gives the man of the house a place to call all-his-own, watch sports, play cards with his buddies, and more.

•    If you work from home or need an extra space for working on various projects turn your loft into a home office. Add a desk, some filing cabinets, a computer, and office supplies to turn your new homes loft into a dedicated space for working, paying bills, writing your dream novel, or playing PC games.

•    A home theater can make that empty loft space into a place for family, friends, and the greatest movies ever made. Add some comfortable theater seating, a refreshment bar, a popcorn machine, and a state-of-the-art sound system to enjoy a good flick at home any day of the week.

•    A loft is the perfect space for the home gym you’ve always wanted. Set-up a weight bench in one corner, and an elliptical machine in the other. Add a television or stereo system for entertainment and start shedding those pounds.

With these endless possibilities in mind, turn your new homes loft space in to one you can enjoy for years to come. Tell us how you’ve transformed your loft space on Twitter and Facebook page.

Ways To Add Color To Your Space Without Paint

Adding color to your living space doesn’t mean you need to break out the cans of paint, smocks, tape, and protective floor coverings. There are many simple tips you can follow, and small changes you can make, to add color to your home.

Accessorize

Adding accessories is the first step to adding pops of color to brighten up a space. Lighten up your rooms with bright pillows and a colorful throw.  A small splash of color can draw attention and make a big décor difference to any room.

Subtle accents can have the same effect. A colorful lamp, bright vase filled with flowers, or decorative candles can transform a room into a lively and bright space. With complimentary color schemes of accessories that fit nicely together, accents can easily add life to your living room without ever adding paint to the walls.

Wall Decals

To add some variety to a room without damaging the walls or going through the hassle of painting, you can apply removable wall decals. Available in a wide variety of colors, shapes, and styles, you can find one that suits your home decorating taste. It’s the perfect way to add pops of the colors to your walls, add character to your space, and showcase your interior design preferences. Because wall decals are made to be easily removed without any consequences, it gives you the flexibility to change the design and feel of a room overtime.

Area Rugs

Your floors are more than just something to be walked on. Flooring contributes to the overall brightness of a room. Add area rugs with unique patterns or color schemes into your decor to draw some attention to a designated space of the room. In other, less important spaces of your room use  smaller rugs to contribute splashes of color. When adding multiple rugs into the same space be sure that the patterns and colors are compatible. Stand back, examine the room, and experience a new look and feel filled with color, without the mess and hassle of painting the walls.

A little touch of color can go a long way. Using accessories, wall decals, and area rugs to bring color into your space can give your home a welcoming and elegant feel with the flexibility to change overtime, without having to change paint colors.

Simple Tips For Saving Energy Around The House

Not only are we becoming a more eco-friendly society, but we’re also becoming more money conscious as the costs of almost everything has increased over time. While it’s hard to stir-away from the prices of everyday items like food, or gasoline to fuel automobiles, one way to save money is through energy efficiency usage. Here are a few tips for saving energy around the house to assist in lowering some of your bills:

saving energy

1) Change all of the light bulbs in your house to energy efficient light bulbs. Because energy efficient bulbs cost more, people tend to avoid buying them. However, even though you will be spending a couple more dollars at the store now, energy efficient bulbs help you to save much more over time because they last eight to 15 times longer than regular bulbs. And, not only will you save money, but these bulbs are also better for the environment!

2) Reduce the amount of water you use is one of the best ways to save energy in your household. Your home has many different sources of water, making it easy to save the amount you’re using:

  • Don’t leave the faucet running when you brush your teeth. This may not seem like much, but it will save you thousands of gallons of water a year – bringing your bills and your energy usage down.
  • Take shorter showers. Showering can use between 6 to 45 liters of water per minute, and costs you a lot of money.
  • Fix any leaking faucets. A leaking faucet can waste thousands of gallons of water a year.
  • Use a watering can to water your plants rather than an outdoor hose. This will use less water and will prevent you from drowning your plants.

3) Think before you switch on the air conditioning. Needlessly using your AC is one of the main energy wasters. Turn on your ceiling fan first. If it is too cold, put on a sweater, or wrap yourself up in a blanket before cranking up the heat. Closing the curtains is also a great way to keep the outside temperature out, leaving your home to either stay cool in the hot summer months or warmer during cold, harsh winters. To maximize the effect of curtains, try placing a chair or other item of furniture against the window to eliminate gaps on the side of the curtain where your homes heating or air source may be escaping.

4) Set and run a schedule with a programmable thermostat is one of the best ways to control costs. With a programmable thermostat you can set times of day that you want the heat or air conditioning to run. If you and your family are often gone during the day you can program the thermostat to be a fixed degree, preventing it from running frequently while the home is empty. No more rushing out of the house and forgetting to change the temperature for the day!

5) Unplug electrical devices you aren’t using. Small electronics such as coffee makers, home entertainment equipment, cable/satellite/ DVR receivers, televisions, cell phone and tablet chargers, home computers, monitors, and printers are all draw phantom energy – energy your electronics are consuming even when switched to the stand-by or off position – energy when they aren’t in use. While individually these devices only use a small amount of energy when in the off or standby position, overtime the total of all the electrical consumption you could be saving by unplugging these items is significant.
