Galentine's Party Inspiration

I kind of love the fact that over the past few years girls/woman have designated the day before Valentine’s Day and Valentine’s as Galentine’s Day. When I was in college it drove me crazy when people called Valentine’s Day national singles awareness day – it had such a negative tone to it, but Galentine’s Day, now that is something I can definitely get behind. It’s just a fun opportunity for a group of friends {married/dating/single} just to get together and have fun. Any chance to extend the celebration of a holiday that involves the color scheme of pink and red I am about it!

Installing a new window – Steps
Step 1 – Choose the style of window you prefer. The most popular types are double hung and casement windows. 
-      Single hung – cheap but less ventilation is provided
-      Double hung – most window series have double hung windows. They allow movement in both sashes. 
-      Casement windows – Most of them open with a crank however they are available in a “push out” style. 
Step 2 – Choose the material. You can decide between:
-      Aluminium – reasonably priced, lightweight and strong. They are energy efficient.
-      Composite – This comprises of wood and fibre with plastic. 
-      Vinyl – This is low maintenance and good quality. Colours are limited to light shades.
-      Fibreglass – More colour options than vinyl, however the darker shades will fade with time. It is very strong and low maintenance. 
-      Wood – The aesthetic appeal of wood is unmatched. They are affordable if you consider entry level wood. 
Step 3 – Choose extras and features. Windows can be accessorized as you want, in the following ways:
-      Wood type – Pine is the standard type however, there are multiple options to choose from. 
-      Interior and exterior colours – You can choose the colours you want, which will match your home. Wood windows can even be left bare. 
-      Glass – You may need to perform a window glass repair on an existing window. Replacement isn’t always necessary. If you are replacing you can opt for two panes of glass with argon gas in the middle, tempered glass, laminated shatterproof glass or tinted glass.
Step 4 – Hire a qualified installer or do it yourself. Windows must be installed properly so that it functions optimally. You may enlist the help of an installer or if you are confident enough, get it done yourself.
