Tips On Office Furniture Selection

With all the current trends and styles in commercial office furniture, having your office fitted with new furniture may seem like an overwhelming task.  A great amount of thought and consideration must be placed into selecting the most appropriate office furniture and fixtures for your office space.  Having the right office furniture can reap various rewards including an enjoyable work atmosphere, increased employee productivity and even health benefits.

Your office fit out can also help create a good and lasting first impression.  How you would like your clients and partners to perceive your business may be portrayed through its decor.  Office furniture with sleek lines and basic colours speak professionalism while more modern pieces portray creativity.

Without a doubt, selecting the right office furniture is a job that can’t be overlooked.  Here are some tips to help you find the office furniture you need for your business.

1.  Know your budget
How much are you willing to spend for office furniture?  There is a wide range of office furniture available with varying prices.  But take note that high quality office furniture does not come cheap.  Be ready to allocate a considerable part of your budget to invest in high quality office furniture.  This actually enables you to save in the long run as quality office furniture will not need replacing or repair for years.

2.  Study your office space
When furnishing your office, the office area is an important concern.  Do you have a large or a small professional space?  Larger office space may have more room for storage areas separate from workstations while smaller spaces must aim for slim, minimalistic and multi-functional pieces that maximise the space available.  How many meeting rooms do you have?  These will need to be fitted with appropriate boardroom tables and chairs.

Does your business require you to receive clients in your office?  In this case, you will need to have an area fitted with client seating.   Does your office space allow for a pantry or recreational area for employees?  Furniture for client and recreational areas may be contemporary office furniture that includes sofas, cafe chairs and stools.

3.  Set time restrictions
When installing new office furniture, it’s important to keep business operations running and employee productivity high.  How much time can you spare for the set-up of new furnishings?  Do you have a weekend for the job or do you need it to be set-up after work hours?  If you have limited time for set-up, then choose office furniture and fixtures that are easily and straightforwardly installed.

4.  Consider your industry
As mentioned previously, your office decor can speak volumes about your business.  Consider the industry your business is in.  Are you in the finance industry as a consulting company?  Then perhaps your office space merits a more traditional look.  Are you in the publishing or advertising industry as a fashion magazine publisher?  Then perhaps your office furniture can be more contemporary to reflect a creative feel.  Your office’s aesthetics needs to reflect the nature of your business.

5.  Pay attention to office chairs
Many employees nowadays are spending more time at the office, working longer hours.  Spending hours seated can be tiresome especially if they are sitting on an office chair that does not offer the proper support.  Pay close attention to selecting quality office chairs that offer comfort and proper support to their backs and arms.  Having the appropriate office chair will help avoid any health problems and discomfort from back strains and also enables your employees to work at their best.

6.  Consider the lights
Lighting is another important factor that must be considered when installing new office furnishings.  Make sure that the work area is well lit and that the lighting is not harsh on the eyes.  Professional lighting consultants are available to help you with fixture arrangements and wattage output concerns.

7.  Consult your employees
If you are still unsure of what office furniture to get for your business space, it would be helpful to ask your employees.  Remember, these are the people who spend hours in the office so their input will be very important.  Ask them what they are looking for in an office chair or what type of storage system they need.  When you are able to provide office furniture that supports a healthy and productive work environment, you can rely on the best possible performance from your employees.

Some Final Words

There are various trends in office fit outs and office furniture today.  To know which one is the most appropriate for your business, it will be helpful to consult with a professional and experienced office fit out provider.

Choosing your sofa







In choosing your sofa, function and aesthetics require equal consideration. The people who will be using the sofas should spend a few minutes sitting, or lying, on the sofa being considered. The depth of the sofa, measured from the front edge to the back seat cushion is a critical measurement for comfort. Tall people need more depth, short the opposite. If your feet can not rest comfortably flat on the floor when in an upright, sitting position, your legs will tense up the longer you sit in the sofa. If people intend to recline on the sofa, then the arm should be comfortable and not too high so it can serve as a pillow.

Most people want the sofa to look inviting as one enters the room. Sofas and chairs "beckon" for us to sit in them. A sofa filled with dressy pillows says, "go sit somewhere else." Colors can be equally inviting. When choosing a sofa, the wall colors, the color of the other furniture, and most importantly, the color and design of the rug that sits directly in front of the sofa, should be considered. Again, if you feel lost in making these decisions, just bring your color samples and fabric swatches to the store and we will assist you. In large rooms, the area rug in front of the sofa will help to settle the eye on the seating area, and give a feeling of restfulness to the room. Depending on the size of the room, a 6 x 9 rug is usually sufficient although larger rooms can use the 8 x 11 size and expand the "seating circle."

Today most people prefer using a solid color or "body cloth" on the sofa and save larger patterns for accent pillows and side chairs. Seldom do customers use the same fabric on all pieces: the exception being the case in formal settings. Contrary to popular myth, you can still buy sofas with narrow arms. The wide arm craze of the late nineties left many people shaking their heads when they went shopping for a smaller sofa.

Furniture selection for your home

Selecting furniture is a little tricky for some. They may know they need some new items but are unsure as to what type of furniture to add to their residence. Thankfully, the variety of furniture available is so vast that no one will ever run out of options. However, making the actual selection can be difficult.  So, let’s look at a few tips and tricks regarding how to select the right furniture.
selecting furniture1 Some Advice on Selecting Furniture for Your Home
Try not to go beyond your budget. If you overspend on furniture you may end up with less furniture than what will be needed to make a room look complete. Having a nice reclining chair and sofa is always good. But, if they are the only two items in the room then the environment will hardly look inviting!
Selecting a theme would also be quite helpful. When furniture is placed in a room without any noticeable theme it will probably look ok, but it might miss out on its potential. So, select a theme such as Victorian, modern, western, etc. Then, make a purchasing decision that includes furniture items that match the singular, selected theme.
selecting furniture Some Advice on Selecting Furniture for Your Home
You can also select certain themes for certain rooms. For example, many people will have a room in the house set aside for work, study, or other pursuits. However, many people will keep such rooms bare. This is unfortunate since they could make these rooms experimental and unique. There are a number of specialty furniture stores that sell Polynesian style furniture, retro-mod style furniture, Asian art inspired furniture, and many other unique styles. Why not take that dull looking room and spice it up with a radical departure from traditional furniture styles?
selecting furniture2 Some Advice on Selecting Furniture for Your Home
Never overlook sticking with “evergreen” furniture either. While it is nice to stay on top of trends, trends have a tendency to run out or steam (and style) eventually. This could leave you without outdated furniture that may need to be replaced. Instead, it would be a little more prudent to stick with furniture that avoids a radical departure from common styles.
Select furniture that coincides with the traffic in your home. In other words, you do not want to select furniture that is over sized for your residence or makes moving around the house difficult.
Remember, it is not enough to purchase furniture. You have to do it smartly as well. When you follow this maxim, you will discover your furniture acquisition experiences more rewarding than you ever thought possible.

Floor Choices

Floored by choice

When it comes to choosing flooring for your home, there are a myriad ways to go. And while looks and cost are certainly going to be key drivers in your decision-making, don’t forget that it’s also so easy to build eco-friendliness and sustainability into the equation.

What makes a sustainable floor?

It’s a surface that’s produced from readily renewable materials via eco-friendly processes. It also creates little impact on the ecosystems around it in the course of its life-cycle, from harvest through to manufacture, use and disposal. Many sustainable floors also have a social aspect to them, in that traditional flooring types, such as bamboo or sisal, tend to rate highly when it comes to sustainability, and choosing such options ensures a future for the communities that supply and manufacture them.
 Top of its list come the natural products cork, linoleum, and wood, with wool and composite marble at the other end of the scale, due to their manufacture and installation requirements.

So, what are some of the “greener” choices available to you?

Hardwood

Wooden floors have been popular around the world for centuries. They add warmth and color to your interior scheme, are practical and easy to clean, and – unlike carpet – are great for people with allergies. What’s more, depending on the kind of timber you pick, this is a great environmentally responsible flooring choice.
To begin with, trees are a renewable resource, but opt for a species that’s plantation-grown and harvested commercially, rather than one that’s plundered out of native forestry. They also absorb carbon as they grow and this remains stored in your flooring, rather than being released as emissions into the atmosphere. What’s more, at the end of its useful life beneath your feet, your wood can be repurposed or recycled, so that the carbon stays locked inside.
New technology has also made many types of hardwood floors much easier to install than they have been in the past. They can even now be ordered pre-finished, so there is no need to sand or seal the boards before or after installation – they can simply be laid straight out of the box.

Bamboo

Bamboo has been a traditional flooring in Asia for millennia. To look at, it can resemble hardwood, but it is cut from a rapidly renewing, highly replenishable resource – as bamboo is a grass, not a wood, it grows to maturity in just 3-5 years. It stores up to 70% more carbon a year than hardwoods, and can also be harvested without the need to replant, as the root system is left intact. This all means its carbon footprint is low, even after shipping out of Asia is included. It is strong, extremely durable, naturally anti-bacterial, and resistant to insects and moisture, which makes it ideal for humid environments.
There are a number of types of bamboo flooring available, each varying slightly in manufacturing process, economic viability at source and local preference. In Asia, the most common form uses thin bamboo stems, cut as flat as possible, then trimmed to similar lengths. The wood can then be stained, varnished or left with a natural look.
Outside of Asia, it’s more common to find more highly processed, manufactured bamboo floors. These are generally made from mature bamboo poles, again sliced into strips, then skinned and boiled to remove the naturally occurring starches and sugars. The wood is then dried and planed, delivering two major naturally occurring colors, similar to beech and oak, respectively.
It’s when it reaches the lamination stage that that the eco-friendliness of most widely distributed bamboo flooring tends to be compromised. This is because it is generally bonded together using urea-formaldehyde (UF) resins, which emit volatile organic compounds, so aren’t great for air quality at the time. That said, bamboo uses much less UF adhesive than other options such as particleboard substrate.
There are, however, bamboo products and systems available that don’t use UF. These locking bamboo systems are the easiest to install, in fact, with joints that click firmly into place and allow you to create your own look using plank alignment and color.

Cork

Cork tiles or planks are made from the bark of the cork oak, which is carefully harvested from the living tree. This means it is a highly renewable and sustainable flooring resource. It is stripped from a cork tree about once every 10 years, once the tree is 25 years old. Each tree can live for up to 200 years.
In terms of flooring performance, cork has a lot going for it. It is naturally anti-microbial, is a great insulator against both noise and heat loss, and is comfortable underfoot. Its springy resilience also means it copes well with furniture placement and heavy foot traffic. To round it all off, it’s fire-resistant as well.
Cork rates high on the “green” scale too. To begin with, as a tree, it provides a living environment for other plant and for animal species. It attracts few carbon emissions in the course of harvest, and if you choose your sealant carefully, you will find there are also low-VOC options available. It is also highly recyclable once its days as flooring are done.
Linoleum
True linoleum (lino) – also marketed under the trade name Marmoleum – has been around since 1855. It is manufactured from 100% renewable sources and is 100% biodegradable.
Lino is a blend of dried and milled flax seeds (linseed oil), pine resin, ground cork and pine resin, with a jute, burlap, or canvas backing. It is fire-resistant and is also anti-static, which makes it ideal for allergy sufferers. Further, as its decorative pigments are embedded in the structure of the lino, it doesn’t fade.
Top-quality lino is extremely flexible – making it useful in environments where tiles etc would crack – and durable. There are cheaper linoleums available, but they are thinner in cross-section and won’t last as long. Just make sure, if you are opting for lino, that this is actually what you are getting. More common today is polyvinyl chloride (PVC) flooring, which has become colloquially known as “lino”… but isn’t. Yes, it wears well, but it also contains plasticisers, chlorine-containing combustion products and impurities such as free monomers, which are less than environmentally friendly.

Rubber

Rubber flooring tends to be associated with commercial and industrial spaces, but – with a bit of imagination – can play a useful role in bathrooms, kitchens and laundry rooms in particular. True rubber is harvested from the living rubber tree, and is therefore a 100% renewable resource. As a floor, it is easy to install and keep clean, insulated against sound and vibration, and is anti-static, so great for asthmatics. It should be fade-resistant too. Again, just make sure you get the real thing, though – synthetic rubber is not a sustainable material.

Carpet

This is an interesting one, given the sheer number of products from which carpet can be made. Perhaps the greatest surprise to be found here, though, is that wool carpets – although wool is a natural, sustainable and renewable resource – rate very poorly on the “green” scale, in terms of published research. This is largely due, not to the wool itself, but to the energy requirements of the carpet manufacture, the VOCs given off by the adhesives used in laying the carpet, and your choice of underlay. That said, low-VOC carpets are becoming increasingly available – or you can use tacks, as they used to do before the onset of glues. And there are also more environment-neutral underlays coming onto the market.
What are your other choices, if you’re worried about wool carpet’s eco-friendly performance? Sustainable carpeting includes that made from other natural fibers such as cotton, sisal, jute, or coconut husk. Again, it’s a case of looking into the manufacturing and installation of each individual product you are considering. One particularly “green” option is carpeting made completely from recycled polyethylene terephthalate – that’s the plastic used in food and drink containers. There’s a never-ending source of the stuff, recycling it like this keeps it out of our land-fills, and its dyeing is less polluting and requires less energy than other flooring types.

Coconut

The timber of the coconut palm is a comparatively rare flooring choice, but is one with good sustainability credentials. Coconut palms grow quickly, but the wood is usually harvested from 60-80-year-old plants that are no longer producing fruit. Coconut is a hardwood with an unusual, appealing close grain. It is cheaper than teak, and as hard as mahogany.

You should now be set to specify eco friendly fooring. There are a lot of choices and you now have the information to help make your decisions.

Pillows for bedrooms....

The Perfect Pillow for your Bedroom

Ensuring you have a good nights sleep is an easy way to increase your physical and mental health and have you bouncing out of bed in the morning ready to face the day.
Many people realise the quality of their bed is important feature of a good nights sleep, but not many think of their pillow.
Like a bed, We cannot tell you which one is best for you, as we all like them different. So instead, here is a summary of the different types of pillows to aid you in your choice.

Types of Pillows

Latex Pillows

Latex pillows are the firmest of pillows, so if you like a soft, squishy pillow steer away. They often come moulded to a certain shape for added neck support and to reduce points of pressure.
So if you suffer from neck and back pain, it may be a good idea to investigate one of these. Latex pillows should all be hypo-allergenic, as it is almost impossible for dust mites and mildew to live in them, ensuring a healthy, clean nights sleep.
Latex pillows hold their shape very well so look good in pillowcases as well as being comfortable. Some latex is designed to be porous so air will flow through the pillow, increasing circulation and comfort.
Gorgeous pillow slips, I wonder what type of pillow hides underneath?

Wool Pillows

Are a long lasting, healthy pillow that are also wonderful for allergy suffers. While I like a relatively firm pillow, when buying wool I always choose a softer fill then normal as it can be rock hard if tightly packed.


But in saying that, wool pillows do hold their shape very well. Wool pillows are very well ventilated and their circulatory qualities ensure your body temperature is regulated throughout the night, meaning they are great for people who experience night sweats or wake up uncomfortably hot during the night.

Cotton Pillows

Cotton pillows have similar hypo-allergenic and ventilation qualities to wool pillows but are much softer. They also compress quickly so are good for people who like flat pillows or who scrunch theirs up into all sorts of shapes.

Down or Feather Pillows

Down or Feather Pillows are as divine as down duvets – soft, comfortable, breathable and available in a range of firmnesses. They can come as down or feathers alone, or a combination, but down is the softest.
Down and feather pillows are easily molded to find a comfortable shape, but watch out for the cheaper ones as the feathers can often be left with sharp bits on them which may inadvertently stick you in the neck. The only negative is many people are allergic to this type of pillow, mainly due to the dust left in the feathers during processing. However, there are new hypo-allergenic fills coming on the market that offer the same sensation as down but with more allergy friendly qualities.

Dacron Pillows

Dacron pillows are filled with a synthetic fibre that doesn’t offer many good qualities apart from price. They aren’t very comfortable as the fibre has a tendency to bunch up in areas and leave you with a bald patch.
As they are synthetic, they also don’t have much ventilation and airflow. Dacron pillows are not recommended for sleeping on but are great for cushions and ornamental pillows as they can go into the washing machine should they catch a stray cup of tea.
That brings me to an important point on pillow care.
  • Always use a quality pillowcase, as these protect the pillow from the oils and dirt on your skin and are easy to wash.
  • Fluffing pillows daily (or as often as you remember) will help them keep their shape longer and break up any lumps of fiber that can form.
  • With the exception of Dacron, don’t wash your pillows in the washing machine.
  • Spot cleaning for small areas or dry cleaning is recommended.
So there you have it, a variety of pillows for all different people. Take a little bit of our advice, and a little bit of your own preferences and you should have no trouble choosing the perfect pillow for you

Bed Sheets,


The Importance of Bed Sheets to a Good Night’s Sleep

Like pillows, sheets are especially overlooked when considering factors that contribute to a good nights sleep. But they are very important, they are your night “jacket”, providing warmth, insulation and comfort.
Bed sheets come in two main types: fitted or flat.

The fitted sheet, which lies directly on the mattress has four corners sewn with elastic, to hold the sheet on the bed.

A flat sheet (also called a top sheet) generally goes on the top of the fitted and is simply a piece of cloth with a hem.
A tight fitted sheet is required on this fouton bed.
The quality of a sheet is marking by its thread count- the number of threads per square inch of material, with the higher the count the softer the sheet. 200 plus is recommended.
Sheets also come in a variety of fabrics

Cotton Sheets

There are many different types of cotton, varying in quality, measured by the length of their staple (the longer the staple, the higher quality the cotton).
The best cotton type has to be Egyptian. Egyptian cotton is obviously produced in Egypt, grown on the Nile river valley.

High thread count Egyptian cotton sheets are a luxury everyone should experience if possible. They are silky soft, breathable and durable, making for a heavenly nights sleep. Cotton sheets tend to crease a lot when washing and can be a real battle to iron.
I get around this by putting them on the bed straight of the clothesline or out of the drier. Stretching them over the bed like this flattens them out in no time.

Flannel Sheets

Most high-quality flannel sheets are made from a wool and cotton blend. The wool provides warmth and the cotton that ultra soft fluffy feeling. While flannel sheets are very warm, they are often not very breathable. People who find this a problem and better to go for the higher quality cotton with a warmer winter duvet.

Satin Sheets

 They are great in the summer as are always nice and cool.
They also breathe very well and are very light, so you feel as though you are sleeping with nothing on you. Some people find sateen a bit scratchy and slippery, so once again, be sure to buy the highest thread count you can afford. Sateen sheets also have a beautiful sheen, so look great.
Be sure to buy sheets the right size for your bed, as there is nothing worse then the “creeping sheet”, working its way off the bed in the middle of the night.
So that’s an overview of the main types of sheets. They are, of course, personal preference, but remember we spend just under half our life in bed, so be sure you’re comfortable!

kwa mfano, dirisha la mita 2 linahitaji kitambaa cha pazia nzito mita 5-6 na hesabu hii inakwenda sawa na pazia nyepesi.... sasa basi utapata kua dirisha moja linahitaji mita 10 - 12 jumla. na hii ni kwa design za kawaida zisizo na marembo......raha ya pazia ijae kwenye dirisha.... ndio inapendeza......

kwa huku kwetu bitambaa vizuri na bei zake ambazo ni za kawaida mita moja inaanzia tshs. 15,000/-......na kuendelea...

na kuna vingine mita moja inaanzia tshs, 80,000, 150,000/- na kuendelea sasa ni uwezo wako tuuuu wewe,,,, na vyote vikishonwa vinapendeza.... sana.... tofauti ni ubora wa kitambaaaa,,,, na mapambo yake.....

hizi gharama nilizozitaja hapo ni za kununua vitambaa pekeee......

na sisi kampuni yetu homez deco, tunaanzia kushona kwa dirisha 1= 35,000/- design ambayo ni simple... na bei zetu tunakuja kukufungia mpaka nyumbani kwako(usafiri ni wa mteja), haijalishi unakaa wapi, hata mikoani tunakuja kukufungia ni maelewano tuuuu.....(kwa wale ambao hawana muda wa kuzunguka madukani, tunatoa huduma ya sisi kufanya kazi yote bila malipo zaidi.....ya kukutafutia kitambaa, kushona, na kuja kukufungia...)

Pazia ni gharama hilo naomba lieleweke lakini pia inategemea na unanunua kitambaa cha bei gani design gani unataka?..... na ukiweka pazia nzuri na yenye ubora.... unaweza ukakaa nayo kwa muda mrefu.....

Ninapenda kuwakaribisha wote ofisini kwetu kwa huduma bora, na kwa kazi nzuri kama zinavyojionyesha...

na sasa niko mbioni katika kuboresha huduma zetu kwani sasa soko limekua, na nina kila haki ya kumshukuru Mungu wangu kwa kila anayonitendea.....

Nawatakia siku njema......

 Pazia hupendezesha sana nyumba......katika nyumba hii ndio kwanza wenye nyumba walikua wamehamia, na kulikua hakuna pazia.....waliniita nikaenda kupima na kuwashonea, pazia za nyumba nzima......

Kama tunavyoona sitting room sofa yake ni ya kijani, ikiwa na mito yenye mistari ya kijani, na nyeupe, pamoja na kama madoa madoa kwa mbali ya kijivu hivi..... kwa mbali unaweza kuona kapeti, kapeti hiyo iko kwa muda wakati wakijipanga kuweka kapeti ingine.....

Hapa tunaona poles za mbao, zinapendeza pia, ukiweka pazia nzuri na zilizotulia....

Nawashukuru sana wateja wangu.....na nawatakia makazi mema.....
