There are many who pay little attention to their carpets and simply replace them whenever the need arises. For others, they prefer to care for their carpets properly and with carpet cleaning are able to prolong the life of their carpets for some considerable time.
If your thinking is closer to the latter group but are unsure how you could prevent your carpets from being damaged and thus last longer, then you are in the place. Below you will find Carpet Cleaning Experts www.brilliancecleaning.com.au‘s 5 of the best tips for protecting carpets from damage and helping them stay as good as new for longer.
Tip #1: Use Rugs In Areas With The Most Foot Traffic
In every home, there are areas of the carpets that the family walk across the most. These tend to be at the main entrance, the hallway, and doorways to the main lounge or living room. It follows that if these areas are the ones with the most use, then they are the ones which visible damage to the carpet will occur first.
To protect these areas the simplest solution is to place a rug over them which will take the brunt of the wear, and if that gets to the point when the rug needs replaced, then that is easier and cheaper than replacing all your carpets completely.
Tip #2: Use Stain Repellent
This might not be suitable for every carpet type, and before using one, always check the carpet manufacturer’s instructions. What a stain repellent does is create a protective coating on the fibres of a carpet and therefore if a liquid is spilled on it, that liquid can be blotted up more easily than if it were able to soak deep into the carpet, damaging it permanently.
Were we to ask 100 business owners where the floor is on their list of priorities, 100% of them would probably say that the floor is beneath everything else. That is, until there is a problem, and they then decide that as a priority they need the offending floor refinished with an epoxy floor coating.
If you are reading this because you have a floor that has become a priority or you want to find out a bit more about epoxy floors, then read on, as we are going highlight 10 of the top benefits of epoxy floor coatings.
It could be that instead of just one floor, that you wish to use epoxy floor coatings on a number of different floors, and in different sections of your business. This is one of the great advantages of epoxy floors in that they are extremely versatile and can be used in various scenarios such as offices, receptions areas, canteens, storage areas, and production facilities.
With the huge array of options that you have with regards to designs, colours, and patterns that can be achieved with epoxy floor coatings, you will be able to make any area appear as though it has a complete refurbishment.
Apart from making a floor look better, one of the main benefits of epoxy floor coatings is their durability. This helps to protect the floor underneath, especially if it is a floor that receives a fair amount of abuse in the form of high footfall, heavy equipment being placed on them, and items being dropped on them.
The word from interior designers who see a lot of different restaurant designs come and go over the years is that those dark – and somewhat morbid – colour schemes known as industrial chic are going out in favour of the light and bright. Who wants to sit in a dark cave to eat anyway? Here are 8 more hot trends in restaurant design that will delight and inspire you.
Let there be light. Lighting that does its job is more in favour these days. It is brighter while still giving an intimate feel to the setting.
Adding to the light and bright look are the pastel colours that have now gained favour for restaurant design and decor. These offer a light and airy feel that everyone enjoys.

Handmade artisan tiles from the local area are now emerging from the amenities rooms to decorate splash backs on bars and perform new work as table and bench tops.
Whether you are deciding on the interior design of a new home or redesigning an existing one, the bedroom tends to be the room that gets pushed to the back of the queue. It is understandable given that the living room is the main room of the house and others like the bathroom and kitchen generally require a fair degree of remodelling.
Nevertheless, if you are in design mode remember that the bedroom is where you are likely to spend a third of your time when you are at home, so its design warrants some careful thought.
The first consideration is whether you share your bedroom with someone else such as a spouse or partner. If you do, then before you even so much as pick a pillowcase, you need to discuss the design with them. Now it could be they are happy to sit back and tell you that they’re willing to let you choose everything, and at first, this may seem a perfect scenario. However, you can bet your bottom dollar there will be something that you pick that they won’t approve of.
