Toronto Kitchen Remodeling and Construction Contractors

Written by admin

We start by helping you select the best materials available, and then we?ll follow through with thorough, expert installation, while paying strict attention to details.

The layout of your kitchen – where you place your appliances, your countertops, and your storage – will determine how cook-friendly your kitchen is. Ask yourself:
Will I have to walk far to get water to top off a pot on the stove?
Will I have enough space to slice, dice, chop, and otherwise prepare meals?
Will I have room to store the olive oil near the stove or will I have to go across the room to get it?
Will two or more cooks be able to work comfortably in the space without constantly bumping into each other?
Will I be able to easily rinse dishes and load them into the dishwasher?
Do I prefer a range or a separate cooktop and oven?
Do I need a prep sink and a cleanup sink?
Do I need an eating area in the kitchen?
Of course, if you’re remodeling, the structure of your existing home will limit your layout options. You’ll have considerably more flexibility the larger your space and if you’re building a new home or adding on.

Common kitchen plans include the one-wall kitchen, the corridor or galley kitchen, the L or double L kitchen, the U-shaped kitchen and the G-shaped kitchen.

One factor to consider when planning your budget for a kitchen remodeling project are to consider the layout and cabinet configuration. It will affect the price greatly, for example, a stack of drawers will be higher-priced than a one-drawer/two-door base cabinet. A U-shaped kitchen will typically cost more than one that’s L-shaped with an island. A wall oven/cooktop combination range will generally cost about $1,000 more than a freestanding range.
When choosing cabinets consider the wood species that will cover the cabinets, door style, the type of finish, as well as the cabinet construction. Choosing the right wood will help to figure a budget on cabinets, as well as your entire kitchen. Melamine surfaces will be the least costly, cherry is usually about 7 to 10 percent more than oak, hickory and pine. Specialty woods like alder, mahogany, fir, rift-cut woods, redwood, and teak will cost more than common woods like oak or pine. Maple is the most common wood, usually priced somewhere between oak and cherry.

The style of door you decide upon will also have an affect on the price of a kitchen remodel. A door with more details like arches, grooves and molding and the amout of each will have an affect on the cost as well. Different finishes are also a factor to consider because the types of finishes will vary in price.

Painted cabinets will run about 10 to 15 percent more than standard stains. Glazes or layered finishes will run about 7 to 15 percent more than a standard stain due to extra labor.
New Trends in Kitchen Cabinets, Countertops, and Flooring

The National Kitchen and Bath Association predicts there will not be drastic changes in terms of customer taste this year. Projects that will dominate in 2010 will use small budgets, greener products, and traditional design. “My sense of trends is that people are looking to do more with less money,” says Ilyce R. Glink, home improvement author, blogger, and talk radio host. “They’re thinking about inlaying different tiles in order to maximize their bang for the buck rather than going with inlaid marbles. People are building smaller, cheaper, greener, and more thoughtfully.” People are looking to express themselves more through their choices than by subscribing to any fad.

Concealed Kitchens that are integrated well with design will be popular. The incorporation of the kitchen into a primary living and entertaining room provides homeowners with far more flexibility in lifestyle. Integrated and concealed appliances allow kitchens to enhances other spaces. Overall composition of kitchens are being defined by the overall scale of the room to add functionality and visual appeal. Distinctive wall coverings, tin ceilings and textured walls are used to balance the scale of new designs.

We are so happy with our new kitchen, laundry room, addition and deck! It’s funny thinking about how we m***ged with our old tiny kitchen for so many years! Now I can cook, my husband can access the fridge and one of the kids can load the dishwasher all at the same time without bumping into one another….it’s so GREAT!

Videochatul, o afacere rentabila

Written by admin
Videochat Bucuresti

Cu totii avem nevoie de bani. Fie ce ne dorim o masina noua, haine de firma, excursii in tari exotice sau doar dorim sa ne platim ratele sau sa achitam un tratament medical, banii au intotdeauna ultimul  cuvant.

O mare parte din timpul nostru a ajuns sa fie dedicata gasirii unor noi metode de a face bani, iar odata cu aparitia internetului acest lucru se poate realiza mult mai usor.

O meserie ca oricare alta – videochatul

Una dintre meseriile cu un grad mare de raspandire in ultimul timp aceea de model videochat. Tinerele ce opteaza sa lucreze in acest domeniu au posibilitatea de a castiga o suma mare de bani, in conditiile in care programul este flexibil si este ales de fiecare model, in functie de timpul liber pe care il are la dispozitie.

Meserie de model se face din fata calculatorului si reprezinta un mod de a socializa prin intermediul internetului. Astfel, tinerele fete tin legatura cu clientii cu ajutorul unor camere web ce sunt montate pe calculator.

Afacerea este rentabila pentru toti cei ce sunt implicati in domeniu. Furnizorii de tehnica de calcul au de castigat datorita faptului ca cererea  de echipamente este foarte mare, iar evolutia internetului si a tehnologiei impun ca aceste echipamente sa fie inlocuite foarte des.

Firmele ce vand soft ies de asemenea in castig, deoarece licentele sunt scumpe, iar numarul posturilor de lucru este in crestere, iar acest lucru inseamna un numar din ce in ce mai mare de licente.

Nu trebuie uitati nici furnizorii de conexiuni de internet. Activitatea de videochat impune o imagine cu o calitate HD, ce trebuie sa fie insotita de un sunet clar si fara delay, iar acest lucru nu mai este posibil fara o conexiune internet de mare viteza, realizata prin fibra optica.

Afacerile rentabile fac prieteni buni

Cei mai castigati din aceasta afacere sunt insa proprietarii platformelor internationale ce se ocupa cu intermedierea relatiei dintre modele si clienti. Una dintre cele mai mari si mai renumite platforme este Jasmine.com, ale caror castiguri constau in sume ce contin multe cifre.

Patronii romani ale studiourilor de videochat castiga sume insemnate, dar nu atat ca tinerele modele, ce trebuie sa petreaca mult timp in fata camerelor daca doresc sa castige o suma insemnata de bani.

Daca se petrec zilnic in jur de 10 – 12 ore in fata camerelor, un model poate ajunge sa castige chiar si 25.000 euro pe luna, dar conditia esentiala este aceea de a vorbi fluent o limba de circulatie internationala (de preferinta engleza).

De altfel, numarul estimat al modelelor videochat din Romania se apropie de 110.000 (fara sa includem aici si studiourile aflate in zona „gri”, ce isi desfasoara activitatea mai mult sau mai putin legal), iar castigurile industriei trec de 100 milioane de euro anual.

De altfel, romancele sunt cele mai solicitate modele, fiind „campioanele” videochat-ului glamour. Modelele sunt condiderate ca si consilieri psihologici speciali, ce sunt dispuse sa asculte problemele clientilor, iar nu putine au fost cazurile in care acestea au legat adevarate relatii de prietenie virtuala cu clientii.



Furnizorii de colocare avantaje mai mari decat dezavantajele

Written by admin

Colocarea de hardware devine din ce in ce mai interesanta pentru managerii IT. Ei au mai mult control, mai putine costuri si securitatea tinde sa fie mai mare decat avand in serverele in cadrul propriei cladiri sau inchirierea unui server VPS.

Pentru multi, amplasarea de servere in centre de date este o munca suplimentara si inutila. Pentru altii, colocarea umple o nevoie reala, mai ales pentru cei care se simt ca trebuie sa imparta servere fizice, in conformitate cu tehnologia masinii-virtuale care creeaza probleme de zgomot pentru vecini si riscuri de securitate.

Utilizarea unui furnizor de colocare permite unei companii sa inchirieze spatiu pentru unul sau mai multe servere detinute de companie intr-un centru de date si folosirea capacitatii de racire a centrului de date, a conexiunilor de retea, precum si accesul la internet. Depinde de contract, dar cele mai multe companii care inchiriaza spatiu isi asuma responsabilitatea pentru hardware-ul fizic si software-ul instalat.

Avantajele folosirii unui furnizor de colocare

Motivele includ:
Costurile de latime de banda scad in mod semnificativ prin amplasarea impreuna a serverelor. Centrele de date au capacitatea de a obtine oferte mai bune privind accesul la latimea de banda si internet decat companiile individuale.
Furnizorii de colocare vor avea conexiuni de retea redundante, precum si cele de alimentare care sunt protejate impotriva intreruperii. Companiile pot avea propriile lor generatoare de rezerva, dar rareori au conexiuni multiple la internet de la diferiti furnizori.
Compania detine serverul si software-ul – nu exista nici un cost suplimentar atunci cand echipamentul sau software-ul urmeaza sa fie actualizat sau inlocuit.
Cu exceptia cazului in care compania are un departament IT dedicat care este familiarizat cu securitatea, serverul va fi mai sigur intr-un centru de date.
In afara de eliminarea zgomotul produs, exista mai multe motive bune pentru care o companie ar dori sa detina serverul si sa-l plaseze intr-un centru de date care ofera servicii de colocare. Centrul de date SRV – www.srv.ro ofera servicii de colocare, vps si servere dedicate

Dezavantajele utilizarii unui furnizor de colocare

Potentiale dezavantaje la amplasarea serverelor companiei intr-un centru de date includ urmatoarele:
In functie de locatia companiei (de exemplu mediu urban sau rural), furnizorii de colocare pot fi destul de departe. Daca este asa, acest lucru ar mari timpul si efortul de a actualiza si a repune in stare de functionare un sistem online.
Legata de locatie este abilitatea de a accesa serverele companiei – furnizorii de colocare nu pot permite accesul 24 de ore pe zi.
Daca activitatea pe internet a companiei care intentioneaza sa-si colocheze serverul, se limiteaza la furnizarea unui serviciu web, costul de inchiriere a spatiului de la un furnizor de colocare poate fi prohibitiv, comparativ cu cel al unui serviciu de web-hosting.
Un dezavantaj suplimentar are de a face cu taxele lunare deoarece preturile fluctueaza foarte mult. Majoritatea furnizorilor de colocare folosesc preturi lunare diferite in functie de cantitatea de date care trece prin serverele companiei.
In concluzie este optiunea fiecaruia de a alege modalitatea de a avea acces la internet. Totul depinde in primul rand de nevoile companiei si de puterea financiara a acesteia .

Platforma digitala pentru transfer de bani online, PrioriPay, un serviciu avantajos

Written by admin

Deschiderea tuturor granitelor, turismul foarte bine dezvoltat din intreaga lume, complexitatea pietei muncii, diversitatea si contextul international in care traim, a dus la nevoia dezvoltarii unei platforme romanesti care sa asigure transferul de bani online, oriunde si oricand, in conditiile in care exista o conexiune stabila la internet. Aceasta platforma digitala a fost construita si a devenit populara datorita numeroaselor avantaje pe care le pune la dispozitie atat persoanelor fizice cat si celor juridice. PrioriPay este denumirea serviciului care face posibil serviciul de transfer de bani online intre utilizatorii care detin un cont in interiorul platformei. Inregistrarea si crearea unui cont reprezinta procese simple, care pot fi realizate de catre persoane cu varsta minima de 18 ani. Toate procedurile se realizeaza in mod legal, transparent si confidential, insa datele oferite la inregistrare trebuie sa fie valide.
transferdebanionlineCrearea unui cont pe www.prioripay.com in vederea realizarii de transfer de bani online poate fi facuta de pe un PC, o tableta, un smartphone sau un laptop. Datele personale si bancare furnizate pentru inregistrare vor fi securizate si nu vor fi dezvlauite in momentul transferului catre beneficiar. O adresa de email este absolut necesara in acest proces, intrucat beneficiarul va fi instiintat cu ajutorul email-ului de faptul ca un transfer a fost initiat. De asemenea, adresa de email va trebuie sa fie una valida, avand in vedere faptul ca utilizatorul va trebui sa confirme inscrierea pe platforma online PrioriPay. Cele mai frecvente intrebari cu privire la inregistrare sunt legate de costuri. Este important de stiut ca nu vor fi percepute costuri de deschidere a unui cont, de inregistrare, de administrare sau de inchidere a contului, atunci cand acest lucru este necesar.
O inovatie pe care o aduce acest serviciu de transfer de bani online este faptul ca un cont PrioriPay poate sa fie deschis in RON, EURO si USD, iar schimbul valutar intre valute este posibil cu ajutorul acestui serviciu. Astfel, o persoana poate sa transfere o suma de bani in valuta dorita in orice moment. Contul PrioriPay este un cont similar cu cel bancar deschis la o banca comerciala din Romania sau din strainatate, insa acesta este administrat online si poate fi creditat cu fondurile contului bancar, cu fondurile unui alt cont de acelasi gen sau prin alte tipuri de transferuri. Avantajul fata de conturile bancare este faptul ca beneficiarul sumelor transferate nu va avea acces la date personale sau la datele contului bancar, precum nici comerciantii online care accepta plata online cu cardul nu vor putea accesa aceste date.
Confidentialitatea este una dintre calitatile care recomanda acest serviciu. Un avantaj major este si faptul ca utilizatorii pot sa realizeze transferuri bancare in orice moment, din confortul propriei case si de pe orice dispozitiv conectat la internet. Limitele impuse pentru transferurile dintre persoane sau companii vor depinde de nivelul de verificare. Nivelul 1 de verificare este un status atribuit contului PrioriPay, iar pentru acest nivel exista o limita de tranzactionare de 2500 euro pe an. In cazul in care se doreste ridicarea acestei limite, se va solicita un nivel mai avansat de verificare si anume Nivelul 2. In acest sens, vor fi solicitate documente care sa demonstreze identitatea si adresa utilizatorului, precum si confirmarea adresei prin introducerea unui cod primit in posta.
