Earn Extra Credit this School Year!

Whether you’re leaving for college or commuting this year, a new beginning is an exciting time for any student.

This time can seem overwhelming but being proactive and organized can make the transition for you and your child an easy one.  Moving day can be a very tiring and stressful day if you’re not ready. The more you do ahead of time, the less you will need to do that day!  Some helpful tips are: removing tags and packaging on bedding can help save time and alleviate excess trash, put the pillow cases and shams on the pillows ahead of time and don’t forget to bring a fan, large garbage bags, duct tape and scissors.

Flush or Semi-Flush?

When you are planning out your home’s lighting scheme, it is fairly common to use either flush or semi-flush lighting fixtures.  Unlike direct task and accent lighting, flush and semi-flush fixtures are ceiling-mounted to provide illumination to a larger more generalized space.  So what exactly is the difference between semi-flush and flush mounted lighting?

Flush Mounted Lighting
The electrical box as well as all the component wires are placed in a space above the room’s ceiling surface. A flush mounted light is directly connected to the inset power source. A wide variety of lighting fixtures can then be mounted flush with the ceiling, eliminating the space between the ceiling and the fixture.
