湾区装修日记-1.1.2018 washer dryer总结


湾区装修日记- 12.26

圣诞节前夕,人生中第一个房子close,地点在从未想过的湾区,城市也是从未料到的城市。房子不是最初想象的完美结构,也不方便改动,但是鉴于也有很多很多其他的优点,总体还是非常欢欣愉悦的。为了更好的居住体验和生活品质,决定装修一把。找了四个contractor估价,还没有做决定。基本不改结构,主要是cosmetic层面。

圣诞节刚过,12.26 开始看建材了。


  • 瓷砖


Porcelanosa:装修明亮高大,小型show room较多,瓷砖种类多,多走现代或者华丽风格,也有laminate,engineer wood地板,各种价位的淋浴花洒水管等小配件有一些。店员不会来找你聊。这里价格据说是最贵,随便看一种都是15刀/sf吧。我们看上一个浅色自然木色的瓷砖。网传每年圣诞节左右有一次40% off。

Bullnose:各种价位都有,没有什么固定风格,种类非常繁多,比如木色系瓷砖就有二三十种,白色大理石图案瓷砖也是十种左右,小型show room很多,店员蛮亲切热情。网传价格虽然不便宜但是公道,质量好,退货方便,可以打10%。确实本人有两家朋友也是在这里买的。

Hera tile and stone,好像是个大仓库,种类很多,但是没有整齐的店面装修,比较乱,找不到谁是店员,草草看了几眼就走了,好像似乎各种价位都有,不适合挑选,适合确定了要买那种,来淘货问价格吧。

Bedrosians tiles and stone:这家很巧,到门口发现是春末时候我买摄影道具灰色系瓷砖去看过的地方,当时不愿意卖我一块(我是在the tile shop很容易得买到了一块瓷砖的,这家店今天还没来得及去)。这家店装修也很好,明亮整洁,种类很多,show room很多,但是不像p和b家,更多的是厨房类,卫生间略少。网传每周随机一个牌子20% off。

lowes:种类不多,但是看到一些白色系瓷砖也不算难看,要求不高的话,其实也能用,便宜省事啊。不了解质量,不过我们估计不会在这里买。

长实KZ kitchen:除了瓷砖,laminate地板,还有大量厨房和卫生间你可以想到的所有东西,也有不少show room,价格看起来非常便宜,每样产品都写一个原价再加一个打折价,不知道是圣诞节这样还是全年都这么写,东西似乎有好有坏,目前不太会看。

Uni有利看起来店铺也不小,但是圣诞节这段时间都关门。

还想要去几家店:the tile shop, best tile。

我们这是第一次看,有点走马观花,没有拿什么sample,

有一些问题:(基本12.31日记都回答了瓷砖分析)

(1)看起来图案相同的砖,在不同家价格差别很大,不知道为啥

(2)一楼entry way,half bath 和二楼主卧的瓷砖具体安装计划还没有想好

(3)瓷砖形状对安装效果的影响,是否安装一个分隔条(横向或者纵向)

(4)如何找最多的折扣

(5)目前想要白色大理石长宽砖做shower room墙壁,shower room地面可能选灰色系小块马赛克,室内地面木色系瓷砖,因为不知道好看与否,查了一晚上pins和ins


  • 木地板


时间有限,只去了一家。

mooqea flooring:屋子不大,种类不多,有三种蛮好看的,分别是灰色系,木色系,还有一个深棕色rustic色系,前两个是engineer,后一个是实木。三种都有铺好成一大片的样品,可以搬下来放在窗边阳光好的地方给你看效果。价格都是5-5.5之间,三种都拿了样品回家。

还打算去几家店:grand flooring, central floor, royal floors, 佳佳地板,the floor store, sunway floor 余氏地板,还有一个微信群里总在宣传自己的欧橡地板,要一月中旬才开张。

目前问题:(12.30日记已经决定大概思路)

(1)没想好装engineer还是实木,可能最后还是看颜值、口碑和价格

(2)喜欢什么颜色也不知道

(3)具体两种地板安装难度和费用需要继续调查,地基是水泥地略麻烦。



  • 卫生间橱柜vanity


Porcelanosa:都是现代风,悬挂风格居多,不是我要走的路线,价格不详

lowes:看起来样式很老旧,便宜的确实一看就质量不好,网上评价也基本很差

长实KZ kitchen:有传统风格,也有一些稍微时髦的款式transitional,现代款式好像没有,似乎可以买,价格没注意

打算继续看的店:sincere鸿年五金,网店类的amazon,wayfair,overstock一类



  • 电器:


顺便在lowes看了washer dryer fridge。因为空间限制,大概必须要买counter depth的冰箱。

洗衣机干衣机总结了must have 功能

洗衣机:

4.5-5 cu ,Energy Star model,front load ,stain-remover or presoaking cycles, sanitizing cycles to kill germs,add a garment,quick wash,hand wash,extra rinse,extended spin cycle,load sensing for automatic water level,delay starts,还有一个不确定的一个双容积选择flex wash/twin wash

干衣机:

moisture sensor,gas,stailenss steel drum,extended tumble for wrinkle removal

关于尺寸的注意事项收集如下:

Width— Leave 1"–3" on the sides and between appliances so air can circulate.

Depth— Leave 4"–6" at the back to accommodate vents, hookups and cords (round vents will require more space than periscope-style vents). Front-load washers and dryers typically need 21"–25" to swing the door open.

Height— For top-load washers, allow at least 20" for door clearance. If front-load models will be installed under a counter, leave 1" of wiggle room so they're easier to remove when necessary. (Note: Unlike pedestals, stacking kits do not add to height.)

问题:

(1)冰箱空间附近没有水管,厨房买的时候已经完全remodel过,不想改水,还能使用water dispenser和ice maker功能么

(2)20.cu的冰箱大小是否太小

(3)洗衣机干衣机品牌有没有踩雷品牌,samsung flexwash和lg twinwash哪个好

打算:少纠结,趁着年底还打折赶紧买了 (12.31买了冰箱)


  • 油漆


在lowes看了sherwin williams,被75种白色漆吓傻以及秒变色盲

朋友们都推荐benjamin moores,懒得研究,想买这款据说最健康质量最好的

计划:还是要多研究下网红爆款,因为我是色盲,外国博主们选的,我一定也喜欢😢

湾区装修日记- 12.27

首先感谢前面几位同学的支持,第一次在华人发帖。因为年龄变大,记性不好,每天的想法和朋友同事的谆谆教诲值得记录,若干年后换房再装修,也有一个备案。毫无经验,写的都是非常基础的东西,感恩大家不嫌弃。大家可以敲打、建议、批评、指正,提问的问题我知道的会尽量回答,不确定的就不误导大家。日记每天自己提问的问题,都会慢慢查找出答案,更新在新的日记中。

湾区装修日记- 12.27

今儿上班,晚上抽空研究下理论知识。


  • 油漆:

http://lifeonhillst.com/breakdown-6-popular-benjamin-moore-white-paints/

此博主review了六种Simply White, Chantilly Lace, White Dove, Decorators White, Super White and White Cloud。图片点链接可以看,我摘抄些对自己有用的信息。

White Dove 奶油调,油润,朋友家全房用的这款,晚上灯光下会有黄色调,据说instagram第一网红。

is the creamiest,when applied in bulk it still appears very clean and crisp, just slightly warmer than the others.  The creamy undertone brings warmth to homes in urban environment, or those in climates that often has grey and overcast skies. In more traditional settings, white dove reads as crisp white without being too cold or modern. It’s lovely backdrop on walls and reads as a very light ‘greige’ color.

Not for trim however, as I prefer my trim to be as pure of a white as possible and this comes off looking too creamy for my tastes.

Cloud White 不黄不灰,不暖不冷,适合传统风格家居

neutral feeling,the undertonesare equal parts gray and yellow, so it doesn’t seem to lean too far to the warm or cool end of things. It isn’t a pure, stark white, but standing on it’s own it does appear ‘white.’ It works well in traditionally designed homes, as it doesn’t come off as super modern.

not cold or sterile, but warm and fresh

Simply White 不会闪瞎眼,但是不会暖

brighter and more fresh than cloud white. It’s also not nearly as creamy as White Dove. This is a great go-to white if you’re looking for something that’s a bit more inviting than a stark white, but doesn’t read too warm or yellow. It’s a great white that plays well with almost any other color but is also beautiful on it’s own. still a warm white, feel cleanest and the most versatile.

Super white 亮白色,适合trim,增强立体感比如窗棂

recommended for trim. It’s bright nature makes trim pop against any other color. When applied to a whole wall (which I, personally, haven’t done) it makes the art, furniture, and decor pop. Most museums use this color on their walls for that reason. Super Whiteworks in any setting, and is the only white I would consider in an ultra-modern space. (Note: I wouldn’t use this white on plaster, or uneven walls as it will highlight the imperfections.)

Decorators white 偏冷的亮白色

This hue is a very bright white, but just a shade cooler than Super White. It works well on trim when paired with gray walls. For whole walls it appears as a perfectly balanced white, only not quite as stark as Super White.Decorators will often mix this 50/50 with Linen White to achieve a balanced, approachable color.

it's a safe white, and delivers in a friendly consistent way

Chantilly Lace 适合搭配白色大理石,灰色系房间

If you’re painting a kitchen with Carrara marble counters, I recommend this color, as it looks beautiful with the cool marble. This is also a great white for ceilings of gray rooms, as it color-matches well and doesn’t seem to stark. crisp and bright while having enough depth to avoid a sterile look. white on the cold side, but able to rbing in war tones as well.

下面敲重点:we really recommend that you get a small sample in the store and paint it on the wall and look at it at three different times of day to see how it changes. It’s worth the effort so you don’t make a big mistake. 恩,我过几天刷了sample会拍个照传上来。


  • 卫生间:

值得思考的几个问题:

(1)排风扇安装后的凝结水走向,小心二楼房顶

(2)shower room地面选择小块砖的目的是防滑,如果墙壁是白色光滑大理石图案,地面可以灰色系小块,喜欢渐变六边形超过正方形,不太能接受鹅卵石

(3)又收藏了一些白色系配木纹瓷砖的图片,很多选择了深棕色系也非常独特,为了保险可以选择浅灰色系木纹地砖

(4)shower room的侧面距离shower head较远处 制作凹槽摆放洗漱用品,凹槽要高度够高,才放得下高瓶子,如果做多层,可能会积水


  • 电:

全屋电线检查,80年代的房子,有没有必要?听说挺多人会换掉所有电线,和房子新旧相关?
