If you love this color but aren’t feeling daring enough to coat your whole room in bright blue, paint an accent wall or your wainscoting. You will get that pop of blue and a stylish look.

    This color pairs with yellow or bright green for a fun and edgy look. White pops against it for a clean traditional or nautical appearance.

    Unlike the other paint companies, Valspar couldn’t pick just one shade! They opted to name 12 colors that they predicted everyone would lust over. The headliner of these is Reassuring Deep Indigo, a richly saturated and deep blue.

    This is the color of your favorite pair of dark wash blue jeans. It’s almost the intensity of a midnight blue, with just a tad of brightness to keep it from feeling overly heavy. Just as that favorite pair of jeans matches everything, so does this color!

    If you opt to paint an entire room this color, keep it fresh with clean trim, light accessories, and great lighting fixtures to balance out the deep colors. It works equally with both modern and traditional décor.

    Modular Residences Misconceptions and Myths

    Many individuals incorrectly think that modular houses are costly, cost a lot to insure, are inferior to on-site houses, take longer to develop, are lower quality, quickly harmed, and that modular homes can not be customized. Fortunately, modular homes do not exhibit any of these misunderstandings. While it holds true that modular styles were fairly basic during the start of the market, today’s innovation and customer demand for this item has actually made these houses essentially identical with conventional built homes. Today, modular houses are constructed in sections or modules in a controlled factory environment. All modular houses are 80% to 95% integrated in factories and then transferred to a foundation  then assembled. To eliminate some of the common misconceptions about modulars take a little fundamental good sense research.

    Benefits

    First, modulars are more economical than website  homes. A modular-home cost per square foot to construct is generally 15% – 25% less costly than an equivalent quality site-built house. Second of all, mod house insurance costs are the exact same worth as that of an other homes. In addition, on-site houses are not superior to modular homes for the simple fact that modular homes are more carefully monitored and built in a factory-controlled environment which improves the structural quality of them. On-site built homes undergo weather exposure which can result in future water damage problems and mold problems. Modular homes are often structurally stronger than standard site constructed houses due to the fact extra framing and structural assistance is constructed into the module develops so they can stand up to transport load factors. On general wear and tear matters, much like any other house, modular houses are subject to weather damage, broken windows, and anything else a normal house would encounter. On-site homes can use up to 4 to 6 months to finish, depending upon season, and the length of time it takes to break ground and lay a foundation. Modular homes take 1 to 2 months from preliminary customer design to shipment of the house from the factory to the structure. Lastly, modular-homes can be tailored to the owners’ preference, or can be customized precisely like the homes in the surrounding neighborhood.
