Design Trends 2019Design Trends 2019: what’s in and what’s out

When deciding on home renovation, its important to consider the year’s design trends.  Below is a list of those design trends for 2019 and what’s in and out.

What’s In:

  • Less is More: Think sustainability. Use timeless materials and not trends
  • Feminine Tones:  Think blushes, rose tones or pink tones
  • Floiral Fabrics/Wallpapers: These have stood the test of time. They’re not your grandmother’s floral wallpaper.
  • Bold Black Bathrooms: Think spa-inspired, indulgent, high-end

What’s Out:

  • Clutter: You don’t want too many things going on. Overdoing it causes chaos.
  • Gender specific rooms: Gone are the days of blue for boys and pink for girls. Think yellows, greens, or try Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2019 Living Coral
  • Statement Upholstery: single piece upholstery, especially jewel tones, is OU.T.
  • Minamilist Art: People are getting bored of sterile and minimalist spaces. Inject some personality and make it interesting.

Fire Restoration | Fire Restoration Contractor | Home Fire Damage

Fire Restoration by S&S ConstructionFire Restoration: getting back to normal and quickly

Experiencing a home fire can be a devastating and frightening experience and one that can seem overwhelming when dealing with the aftermath. Postponing fire restoration can result in the damage becoming worse and eventually costing a considerable amount of money for repairs.  However, making the restoration a priority can help avoid costly repairs and long term damage. The most important step in this process is contacting a fire restoration contractor.

Fire restoration contractors specialize in the restoration process, are trained to handle the damage that comes with home fires and can reduce the risk of further damage. Fire restoration contractors will work diligently to salvage as many of your belongings as possible and they will work quickly to return you to your home as quickly as possible. It is recommended to go through your homeowners insurance company for reliable fire restoration contractors as there often times are “fire chasers” that pray on those who are most vulnerable.  If you choose to select a contractor on your own, make sure to do thorough investigation and reference checks. Also, verify all licenses and insurance are up to date and there are no mechanic’s liens on their business.

Getting back to normal after a house fire is a long road but can be done with relative ease, with the right help.  If you find yourself needing the expertise of a license, insured fire restoration contractor, please contact S&S Construction Restoration, (760) 559-2667.

 

Patio Design | Outdoor Living Design | Custom Patio Design

S&S Construction Patio DesignTransform your Backyard into an Oasis

Living in Southern California, we are fortunate in that we have many options for outdoor living. Creating an outdoor living room, dining area or even a kitchen is not out of the question. Giving adequate thought and planning, not to mention time and money, you can easily add living space.  However, the one element that ties it all together is a solid patio cover and one that will protect your guests and furnishings from the elements.

There are three primary patio cover materials to consider: wood, vinyl and aluminum.

Wood:  With its natural beauty, wood is the go-to choice for patio covers. Wood provides many colors and textures for your patio design and can be painted to coordinate with the design scheme of the home.  However, one major downside is the upkeep.  Especially, here in Southern California, the sun can do quick damage to the structure.

Aluminum:  This material is a solid choice for patio covers as it requires very low maintenance, is eco-friendly and can withstand those Santa Ana winds. Unlike wood, it won’t burn if we experience wildfires as we have recently as aluminum is quite fire resistant.

Vinyl:   This material is constructed from PVC plastic. With its durability, vinyl will not warp or rot and can easily be cleaned with a garden hose. However, vinyl is limited in colors and usually requires other materials to provide stability and strength, thereby adding to the cost.

Its important to partner with a qualified contractor who understands the “ins-and-outs” of patio design. Call S&S Construction and their team of design experts to help walk you through the process. Adding outdoor living space can add approximately 10% of usable space to your home so its important to do it right. S&S Construction, 760.559.2667
