Wall Mounting Tricks

The most common practice of mounting an LCD TV on the wall is by hiring the services of a professional. This ensures that the Samsung LCD TV is properly mounted; it will not fall into the ground, and will not leave you crying for an expensive LCD TV shattered into pieces. You can ask the store where you bought the unit if they could also send someone who could do the unit set up. The people from the electronics store are more capable in installing such devices appropriately and efficiently.

But if you are quite knowledgeable about electronics and home technology, then maybe you can do the mounting yourself. It is not that hard to do the installation, but you may need help from another person since the LCD TV itself is big and it might feel heavy when you are to mount it on a high wall.

Having help around will make things easier and safer for you since you have other pairs of hand to help you carry, screw, and install things. Their suggestions and ideas could also improve the look of your wall mounted television.

To begin with, identify the exact part of the wall where you want to place the television. Prepare a stud finder and use it to make sure that the wall mount is set into a stud. This will make your LCD TV securely stable on the wall.

Now that you have located the studs and marked the exact location for mounting, you are now ready to set up the wall mount. Basically, you need to screw the wall mount into the wall in as many screws as possible. More secure points are necessary to lessen the weight on every mounting spot. This ensures that the overall weight of the LCD TV is distributed among the anchors, making your wall mount stable for the TV.

This is mainly the demanding part of the installation. After setting the studs and attaching the wall mount with screws, you ca now position your Samsung LCD TV onto the wall mount. Next, you can start hooking and plugging the television. But of course, since you have a stylish TV mounted fashionably on the wall, the cable lines should not ruin your well-designed installation. Find a way to hide the cable lines. You can drill into your wall and run the wires through them. There are also conduits or cable covers and cases that are available for you to stylishly hide the cable wires. Several home improvement stores have those tools available.

Bathroom Wall Mirrors

Suggestions For A Fog Free Mirror

o Keep you bathroom as spacious and airy as possible. Bathrooms that are well-ventilated are less prone to mirror fog.

o Try and invest in technologically advanced bathroom wall mirrors. Nowadays, there are many manufacturers who offer fog-free mirrors. These mirrors can be installed on the bathroom mirror cabinets too. They use the mirror-warming technology to keep the mirror smog-free.

o You could also have a built-in vent fan installed in your bathroom. Keep the fan running while you shower so that fog does not collect on your mirror.

o If you are alone in your home then you could also consider keeping the bathroom door open while you shower. Just keep the bathroom mirror light open.

o If nothing seems to work, then purchase a small squeegee and a no-fog cloth. You can find both these items in any hardware store. Once you have them, all you need to do is to wipe the mirror with them every time fog accumulates.

o You can even use the hair dryer to keep the mirror clean. Here remember to keep your hands absolutely dry lest you get a shock.

o Also try a cold water spray for a couple of seconds after a hot shower. A cold spray quickly condenses the steam from not only your bathroom wall mirrors but also the whole bathroom.

Painting Wall Murals

Step One: Properly Prepare Your Site for Painting

The first step is to properly prepare your site. Painting wall murals is just like any other painting project. To do it right, pull out the masking tape and drop cloths. Many people also apply a fresh coat of paint to the room before painting wall murals. Use a satin finish or eggshell finish latex wall paint for the best sheen and chose a color that will look great with your mural. If you are not putting on a fresh coat of paint, make sure the wall surface is completely clean to ensure the best adhesion. Use a product specially formulated for cleaning walls for best results.

Step Two: Choose the Right Paint

You may read elsewhere that oil-based paints are the way to go when painting wall murals. If you are a professional muralist, that statement is probably true. However, if you’re just an average homeowner that wants to do something creative and original with your home, acrylic paints are actually your best option. Acrylic paints are quick drying and water soluble. They are very similar to latex wall paints, but can be purchased in smaller sizes. You can find acrylic paints at your local hobby store or even the craft section of your local Wal-Mart.

Do you have some latex wall paint left over from another project? If you want to use it, go ahead! Latex wall paints and acrylic craft paints are compatible products and can by used interchangeably when painting murals.

Step Three: Choose the Right Brushes

As tempting as it may be, now is not the time to raid your son’s crayon box for the paintbrush that came with his watercolor set. However, a quick trip to the craft store may leave you scratching your head. There are so many options when it comes to paintbrushes. How do you pick the right one for your project?

Paintbrushes are made with natural animal hair, synthetic fibers, or a combination of both. The best brushes for use with acrylic paints are high quality synthetic brushes. The heads on brushes also come in many different shapes and sizes. For painting wall murals, you will need more than one type of brush. At a minimum, you should purchase a wide, flat brush for painting the large areas of your mural and a round paintbrush for adding details and outlining images.
