Pitch-In for Fitness with an Outdoor Sports Pitch

Playing in the neighbor’s yard or community park are common past times for kids of the 20th century. But this is now a rarity for kids today – especially those who are hooked on their gadgets. Given the importance of fitness in one’s overall well-being, everyone should be encouraged to participate in outdoor physical activities and sports. One way to do this is to provide kids with facilities like an outdoor sports pitch or playground.

Sports facilities in the school and community provide kids with a venue to explore different physical activities. This helps promote physical, mental, and social wellness in the community. However, not all communities have ample sports facilities to service the needs of their residents. This makes it harder to encourage people to get into sports. If you have extra space in your property then you may want to consider having your own outdoor sports pitch. This can be your contribution to sports and fitness in the community. You can also make money out of it by renting out the facilities for private events.

The usual concern in building or installing an outdoor pitch is limited space and budget. But this can be solved by installing MUGA or Multi-Use Games Areas instead. According to FIBA rules a basketball court should measure exactly 28m x 15m while a tennis court would require space of about 23.77m x 10.97m. This means you will need a minimum of around 54m x 27m of space for both pitches. On the other hand a MUGA would only require around 37m x 18.5m and you can already play basketball, tennis, and netball in it. Aside from saving on space, MUGA also saves on the cost of building and maintaining multiple pitches.

It would be great to have your own outdoor sports pitch. Aside from having free use of the facility anytime you want, you are also taking part in community building by encouraging kids to engage in sports and fitness activity. But if this is not possible, then you can simply involve your kids in sports activities in school and the community.

Have You Considered a Wine Cooler for Your Home?

If you’re a wine enthusiast, installing a wine cooler in your home will provide the perfect place for wine storage. Wine coolers can be installed in a variety of areas, and they’re available in various sizes and prices. A wine cooler will protect your favorite wines, so you can enjoy them with friends and family whenever you like.

Choosing the Right Model

Wine coolers come in two different models, freestanding units and under-counter built-in units. Large, freestanding models can accommodate more wine storage, but they take up valuable floor space. They require at least four inches of clearance on all sides for proper venting. Under-counter models are much smaller, so they can be installed under cabinets or built into custom wine bars. Typically, under-counter models are more expensive because of their compact features. Depending on the size and model, they can be three to four times more expensive than freestanding models.

Wine coolers also come with single and dual zones. A dual zone model will let you to store both red and white wines in the cooler at two different temperatures. If you like to keep both red and white wines on hand for dinners and parties, a dual zone wine cooler is your best bet. Red and white wines must be stored at different temperatures for serving.

Choosing the Right Location

A freestanding model can be installed wherever you have the proper amount of space. A large model can be located in a kitchen, walk-in pantry, family room, or finished basement area. An under-counter model works best in a kitchen, dining area or customized wine bar. A typical under-counter wine cooler is about 20 inches from front to back, so it easily fits under kitchen counters and cabinets that are usually 24 to 30 inches deep and 36 inches high. If you install your cooler in a wall cabinet, create a custom toe kick that matches the the rest of your cabinets. If your cabinet has custom details like a granite countertop or decorative edging, make sure your cooler has the same details.

Before choosing a location, make sure there’s an electrical plug in close proximity. If not, you will need to install one. Be sure to check with the manufacturer of the wine cooler for required venting clearances. Improper venting clearances will cause improper cooling. If you have problems with your wine cooler, call a Miami sub zero wine cooler repair service.

A Parental Retreat

It is important that busy parents have a place in their home where they can go to relax at the end of the day. This is often the master bedroom; but, unfortunately, most people overlook their bedroom when it comes to decorating. It is simply a place to store clothing and crash at the end of a hectic day. By doing some simple renovations, this area can become a much needed refuge for a tired mom or dad.

The Structure of the Room

The first step in creating an oasis within the master bedroom is to look at the actual structure of the room. Is the placement of the bathroom and closet working? Are the windows acceptable, or would it enhance the area to add a larger picture window? Is the color okay? These decisions are best made with the help of a reliable contractor. Free contractor leads can be found online at sites such as Renovation Experts.

Functional Furniture

The furniture in a master bedroom should be functional and beautiful. Whether one likes a contemporary look or a rustic feel, the furniture needs to provide what the homeowner wants. Beds should be large enough for the occupants to sleep comfortably without over powering the room. Leave enough floor space for a nightstand on each side and a dresser for extra clothing. Additional pieces like vanity tables, valet racks, and benches will help make the room cozy and useful.

 

Beautiful Accessories

The bedding is the first thing one sees as they enter a bedroom. It should be the focal point of the room while adding a pop of color to the space. Throw pillows and an extra blanket at the foot of the bed make it comfortable. Curtains should coordinate while providing privacy. Room darkening drapes are ideal for sleeping in. Throw rugs can be used to create soft places for bare feet to land as one gets out of bed, and remember to match bathroom towels, window treatments, and rugs to the main room.

With these few simple changes parents will find that they have a master bedroom that is both inviting and comfortable. They can recoup, relax, and get a good night’s sleep in order to wake up refreshed and ready to tackle another day.

The Most Neglected Aspect of Your Heating and Air Conditioning System

If you are a homeowner with an air conditioning system, like many other people, you may change your filter from time to time, but usually don’t call an air conditioning repair technician unless your system is broken or not working right. However, this is a mistake. There is an important maintenance service that heating, ventilation and air conditioning service companies offer that should be utilized. An HVAC company can perform a tune-up on your system that will provide benefits to you as a homeowner. The following are few things to keep in mind.

What exactly is an HVAC tune-up?

When you have your air conditioning system tuned up, there are several things that a technician will do. In fact, there is a checklist that they will often work from. Your entire systems will be inspected, especially those components that are most likely to fail over time. They will lubricate all moving parts, remove any debris and clean the dirt and dust buildup in the system. Your Freon will be charged, and your thermostat will be checked, so it is operating properly.

A tune-up keeps your system in peak conditioning

By having a system that is working in top condition, your AC will be able to cool down your home quickly and shut off. This saves money on your electric bill. In addition, your home will, in fact, be cool. When your AC is not working at its best, there are times when you will not be comfortable because the thermostat is not working right, or there simply is not enough cold air coming out of the vents. This usually will happen on the hottest days.

A tune-up can catch problems before your system breaks down

Although there are never any guarantees that your AC system will not break down, by having a tune-up done, at least once a year, the chances of your system breaking down are greatly reduced. Not only does this save you money on repairs, but it also prevents the aggravation and discomfort associated with your air conditioner breaking down during the hottest day of the year, and this when it will happen. It is usually the day that puts the greatest stress on your system.

Don’t wait until you have a problem with your air conditioning system. Call an hvac contractor williamsburg va today, and make an appointment for an AC system tune-up. You should also make a habit of doing this once a year.
