Multitasking homeowners demand more of their space

first_imgWashing clothes in the bedroom. Sending email from the laundry room.Busy Americans are demanding more from each room in the house, and spaces designed for multiple functions are popping up all over floor plans, design blogs and magazine spreads.“People multitask all the time. There is a definite correlation and carry-over in the home,” said Wendy Danziger, owner of Danziger Design in Bethesda, Md. She has helped clients create rooms for eating and watching television; housing guests and working from home; sleeping and doing laundry.Some homebuilders have added space for seating, desks and charging stations in the laundry room.“It’s happening all over,” Danziger said. “There’s a lot of strategy that goes on — a lot of compromise.”Furniture manufacturers, too, are helping to make every square inch count, said Pat Bowling, spokeswoman for the American Home Furnishings Alliance in High Point, N.C. Modern pieces include end tables that double as file cabinets, coffee tables with adjustable heights to accommodate working at a computer or eating, and chests with docking stations for electronics.The portability of laptops, tablets and other devices means you don’t need a dedicated home office to work at home. People can — and do — use electronics in the family room, bedroom and kitchen.“Today’s furniture is multi-tasking furniture that can help you stay organized, stay connected and keep clutter at bay,” said Kim Shaver of Hooker Furniture in Martinsville, Va. “In versatile styles and silhouettes, these pieces fit any room — from the kitchen to the bedroom and from the family room to the entry hall or foyer — and provide multiple functions in each room.”Danziger says a console table with hinged leaves is a good option for a TV room that sometimes needs to become a dining room: When guests come for dinner, just slide the table away from the wall under the television and extend the leaves to create a table that seats up to six people.Nesting tables — stacking tables of different sizes — also help increase the functionality of a space, she said. She often puts them on wheels so they can easily be rolled to another area of the room for another use.She has worked with retirees downsizing to a smaller home and with young professionals squeezed into urban apartments.“Once home offices were the rage,” she said. Now, “it is not unusual to see living spaces where people eat, sleep, work and play games just for the sake of living in a city where one can walk to everything, including their office.”Frank Pitman of Frank Pitman Designs in Orange County, Calif., also has seen the trend. “There’s a lot of dual -purpose space happening,” he said.He has had a growing number of clients putting laundry facilities in their bedroom closets. “They are already storing the clothing there. Why not wash the clothing right there?” he said.Some of his clients like having a room’s secondary use come as a surprise: Television or computer screens that seem to “appear from nowhere” are good examples, he said.Murphy beds, which are stored vertically in a cabinet along a wall, or murphy desks, which slide out of bookshelves, are another way to keep a space’s other function hidden.Often the need to get more use out of a space arises when an elderly parent joins the household, a grown child returns home or a young family hires a live-in nanny, said Amy Albert, editor of Custom Home Magazine in Washington, D.C.“Multiple generations needs multi-functioning space,” she said.last_img read more

PSG interested in signing Real Madrid forward Jese Rodriguez

first_img PSG coach Unai Emery is looking for a player who can play out wide and also as the striker, and both Jese and Lacazette fit this profile. 29/07/2016 Sport EN The Canarian forward’s exit may come in the form of a transfer or a loan – it could end up being something like the deal that took Alvaro Morata to Juventus.  Jese’s future looks like it lies far from Real Madrid, after Zinedine Zidane told him he was not being counted on for the season ahead. His agent Gines Carvajal has got to work and lined up a couple of moves, with L’Equipe saying that Paris Saint-Germain are in for the forward, using him as Plan B if their attempted to sign Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon fails.

Fiscal prudence ‘good news for investors’

first_img26 October 2011The South African government is committed to maintaining prudent fiscal policy, which is good news for investors, BoE Private Clients said following Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan’s Medium-Term Budget on Tuesday.“Given the global backdrop of sovereign risk and the potential for years of slower growth – as austerity and consolidation loom – the value of this commitment cannot be overestimated,” BoE Private Clients economist Madalet Sessions said in a statement.“Not only did Minister Gordhan highlight the trade-off between government consumption expenditure and infrastructure investment, but he also indicated a clear preference by stating that South Africa had to prioritise public infrastructure spending,” she said.“He further demonstrated government’s commitment to enhancing the growth potential of the economy by saying that the country had to borrow to invest in infrastructure – not government consumption.”Gordhan said for the next three years, the National Treasury would aim to moderate spending growth in order to stabilise debt as a percentage of GDP.“This commitment to prudence and fiscal consolidation over the medium term suggests that SA’s fiscal affairs will continue to stack up well in comparison with developed markets,” said Sessions.“This prudence should in the long-run pay handsome dividends as the threat of higher taxes and interest rates in the future remain contained.”Sessions said this would enhance South Africa’s attractiveness as an investment destination.Sapalast_img read more

Microsoft Chief Nadella Will Be Back For More Next Year At Women’s Tech Conference

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting When Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella told thousands of women at the Grace Hopper Celebration for Women In Computing that people should rely on the corporate system and karma for raises and promotions, the audience was understandably confused. See also: Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella To Women: Don’t Ask For A Raise, Trust KarmaNadella now finds himself in hot water over the remarks, but despite the criticisms, he is planning to attend the conference for at least the next four years. After yesterday’s keynote and subsequent outpouring of criticism, Maria Klawe—president of Harvey Mudd College, Microsoft board member and Nadella’s on-stage interviewer—asked him if he would return. He said yes.“It has changed him, he’s learned something,” Klawe said in an interview. “He’s going to keep on learning. He will be much more knowledgable about women’s issues by the time he comes back here next year.”After The FirestormNadella’s statements sparked a firestorm of criticism, considering his advice was contradictory to what women have been told for years—if you want to move forward in your career, you need to be assertive and ask for what you want. The gender pay gap still exists, and on average, women earn only 78% percent of what men do.See also: Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella Eats Humble Pie Over Remarks To WomenShortly after we published a story on the incident, Nadella issued a tweet saying his remarks were “inarticulate,” and followed up with a statement to employees that evening in which he described his earlier remarks as “completely wrong.” Though according to one former Microsoft employee, Nadella’s advice is apparently the standard response at Microsoft to anyone, male or female, who asks for a higher salary. At Microsoft, that strategy might work. But for the vast majority of women in technology, it was spectacularly bad advice. Thankfully Klawe was quick to disagree during Nadella’s presentation. She provided the audience with helpful advice—know how much you deserve to be paid, and if you’re nervous about asking for a raise, practice with people you trust first. See also: Microsoft CEO Explains Why He Said Women Shouldn’t Ask For Raises“I thought it was important to say I disagreed,” Klawe said. “It was important to very explicitly point out that even someone who is thought of to be as successful as I am is uncomfortable doing it.”After an experience like Nadella’s, some technology leaders would be tempted to avoid conferences like this one. But Nadella, who spoke sincerely on Thursday about improving the gender balance and the importance of bringing more women into the technical workforce, will step into the breach once more.Let’s just hope he doesn’t overcompensate by preparing his script well in advance and sticking to it no matter what.Lead photo by The Anita Borg Institute, Steve Maller Photography A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… selena larson 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketcenter_img Tags:#diversity#Diversity In Tech#Grace Hopper Celebration#Harvey Mudd College#Maria Klawe#Microsoft#Satya Nadella#women in technology Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…last_img read more

first_img Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more. Visit: https://subscribe.premiersports.tv/ Sampdoria defender Jeison Murillo has hailed the appointment of Claudio Ranieri as “a positive change” for the team. Murillo joined Samp from Valencia in August and was speaking at Colombia’s training camp ahead of their two friendlies against Peru and Ecuador. “It’s great to play regularly in a League I have already played in, know well and like a lot. “I’ve played in practically all the games. Things aren’t going as we would’ve liked, but the change in coach is a positive change for us. Results are improving.” Ranieri has collected seven points since taking charge of Samp, although they still find themselves in relegation trouble. The former Inter man, meanwhile, has played eight times this season but was dropped for the last three games.last_img read more
