Posts Tagged 'appliance connection' presents “Outbreak: The Adirondacks”

Now this is luxury. Basking in the sun in the middle of the scenic Adirondacks, enjoying the crisp air of the early spring. The leaves are bright and green and seem to stretch on into forever, as if this wood was the whole world itself. Up here, taking in the expanse of Upstate New York, it’s easy to believe that we’re the only people in the world, and that there’s no massive zombie horde almost certainly chasing us down, and perhaps even now lurking in this sylvan wonderland, stalking between the trees in dread pursuit of our flesh and blood, that they may feast.

So just kick back, relax, and take a seat on any one of these beautiful Adirondack chairs.

I’m a pretty big fan of this one, the Cedar Delite Western Red Cedar Small Adirondack Chair with Exterior Stain. It’s made with 100% beautiful Canadian Western Red Cedar in that classic Adirondack style that just screams “weekend at the Finger Lakes with FDR in a world totally not swarming with the undead.” I mean, yeah, FDR had to fight a war, but that’s gotta be less stressful than the collapse of all human civilization under the weight of a zombie plague. So let’s just pretend that never happened for a few days and relax. We’ve got a lot of travelling ahead of us coming up.

No, I don’t hear anything.

Nothing is more relaxing than this elegant, sloping grain. We can lay out and forget our horrifying worries, and dream a little dream of swimming and brandy and little tiny hot dogs on sticks. And unlike our deathly pursuers, this wood is extremely resistant to decay, so it’ll be looking beautiful long after this entire continent has been abandoned to the walking dead.

Stop panicking. Nothing’s out there, probably, and even if there is, there’s nothing we can do about it, so let’s just kick our legs up on this Rectangle Western Red Cedar Coffee Table, set your drink down on the Red Cedar Atlantic 17″ Round Table, close our eyes, and drift off. If the hordes burst in tonight, I want them to see how utterly unconcerned we were, and how comfortable and refined, before we start breaking it apart to use as weaponry.

Zombies or no, has all the Adirondack chairs you could ask for. presents “The World’s Greatest Leprechaun”

Skippy McShamrock was, undoubtedly, the world’s greatest leprechaun.  He would, in a few short years, completely revolutionize his people’s way of life. No more cobbling, no more hiding pots of gold. Those were the old ways, for the old men, who still kept both their red beards and the old seasons, who waxed and waned with the year.

“This is a new age,” he would say, “and those traditions are dead. We need no longer wait, no longer hide. We are entrepreneurs in the world’s fastest-growing industry!” Everything about him screamed progress, future, success, technology. He kept a smartphone. He kept his wealth in banks. He didn’t feel the need to taunt and mock — this was the end of the mischievous leprechaun of old. No, all the old things have passed away.

No more the artisanal furnishings; in his office, McShamrock kept only the most modern decor by Euro Style. Everything, from his desk to his couch to the delicately engineered sculptures he kept  by his window, was furiously modern. He liked to keep things minimalist; it made him feel like he was falling — no, racing — into the future. McShamrock had no truck with tradition. He was a revolution unto himself.

He poured himself a brandy into a stark and geometric glass — no more pink hearts, orange stars, and yellow moons for him, for this was fast becoming a changed world — and reflected on how he kept his home the same way. Enough of the old hobbit holes! His was a modernist poem in leather and glass. He kept it clean and undistracted, with his curved, single-piece glass console table, and his Valencia leather lounge chair. He was determined to make a strong fashion statement: this was the time for the new.

He looked out of his window, at the vast expanse of Leprechaun society below him, the bustling mess of horse carts and automobiles, the roughspun peasants and the burgeoning middle-class. They looked only to themselves. But Skippy McShamrock was a great man. He looked only forward.

Don’t let Skippy McShamrock think he’s better than you; all of the above items are available for sale at presents “They Fight Crime!”

So. The ratings are low, ad revenue is down, and you need a hit on the cheap. Something we can explode out of the gate without needing a huge budget. Well, have I got an idea for you:

The Incompletes. He’s a down-on-his-luck ex-truck driver from the wrong side of the tracks who plays by his own rules. She’s a fast-talking expert statistician with a gambling addiction and nothing left to lose. Together, they’re taking down Jaros Zarka’s criminal syndicate — one bastard at a time. It’s 21 Jump Street meets CSI meets Hill Street Blues meets NYPD Blue. And the best part? Everybody in it is nine years old.

We can skimp on the sets by scaling everything down so that the kids look like adults. It’s genius. And I know just how to do it: Fun Furnishings. These are teeny-tiny, kid-sized furnishings perfect to help scale the set down. We can do sofas, chairs, and, um, beanbags. Nothing says “prime time vigilante drama” like a well-placed beanbag chair. It just screams action and drama. And even if it doesn’t — it’s not like we’re spending a lot of money on this.

They’re perfectly scaled, inexpensive, and made entirely out of lightweight, flame-retardant foam. And they have unmatched versatility — the sofas and chairs fold out into sleepers, so they can double as beds! All we have to do is get the foley guys or whoever to pick ’em up and move ’em to over to another part of the set, toss a blanket down, and boom! We got a bedroom! Perfect for our grizzled heroes to angst about how they’re gonna stop Zarka’s latest nefarious operation.

And there are so many different colors and patterns — our sets will never get boring even we stay under budget! The kids will be engaged in full-on pitched battles over colorful sofas in Zarka’s decadent office. Sure will look great in HD! And for more somber scenes? The Central Park Sleeper Sofa‘s got that covered, too.

I can see it already. Right where ER used to air, we put on The Incompletes — no, they won’t be able to tell they’re kids. Just stick fake goatees on ’em and nobody’ll be able to tell the difference.

The viral marketing alone will make us millions. presents “Just a Regular Cowboy”

I do believe I am the rootin’est-tootin’est buckaroo ever to muster cattle in Branford County. I drive them steer up and down the river, mud everywhere and coverin’ everything, stinkin’ to high heaven with that musty smell you only ever get from cattle. I sleep in the ditches and dirt, warmed by the fire, comforted only by the thought that when I get home, I’ll be greeted by the most striking, elegant accent pieces west of the Mississippi.

Now, this may not be la-dee-da New York City, but after weeks on horseback and eatin’ beans from a can, it does me good to remember that my ranch cabin is most elegantly accoutered, and that right next to the bull whips and muddy boots — well, not right next to — I’ve got these absolutely lovely handmade, blown-glass sculptures.

I get covered in filth and loam, and Lord knows that’s how a man’s s’posed to be. Yesirree, I’m a salt-of-the-earth sorta fella, who works with dirty hands and saddle sores. I eat my steak rare, culled from the herd, lookin’ out over the Rio Grande. My hands are calloused, my boots worn, my hat broken-in and blown. That’s why  I keep home full of singing angels, elegant, furiously modern candlesticks, and these spectacular wall sconces. When I walk in from a month-long cattle drive, it’s good to know I’m the only cowboy with enough interior design sense to accent the whole dusty frontier image with beige and caramel glass decor.

No, mounted horns and horseshoes above the door just ain’t for me. If I’m gonna work like a cowboy, well, by Golly I’m gonna live like I’m on Park Avenue. Care for some brie? presents “The Mummy’s Curse”

Listen. I understand. You were just enjoying your vacation to Egypt, taking a nice stroll around the Valley of the Kings. You certainly didn’t intend to desecrate anything, did you? No, of course not. And when you stumbled — by accident, of course — into the tomb of Sheteptawy, did you mean to break a couple a of canopic jars? No. That would be ridiculous.

But it’s what happened, and now you need to deal with it. You broke those jars, and now you’re under Sheteptawy’s curse. So we have a couple of options here: either you can spend the rest of your life in abject terror because that old priest of Set is about to shamble around the next corner, arms outstretched, with his dead eyes filled with the certitude of his revenge, or we can take steps to keep you safe. And I have just the solution: Ecosmart Fire.

Stop crying. Everyone knows that mummies hate fire. I mean, well, I guess everybody hates fire, but mummies? Mummies are literally dried-out corpses from the middle of the desert. They’ll go up like kindling. So the best way to feel safe is to trick out your house with these bioethanol indoor fireplaces that flame up with the flip of a switch. If Shetaptawy does go ahead and show up, you just turn these babies on and he’ll run screaming into the night. Or lumber awkwardly away moaning into the night. Either way, he’ll be somebody else’s problem.

And we can outfit your place in whatever mummy-deterring arrangement suits you best. They’ve got both wall-mounted and free-standing models. Tactically speaking, I think the free-standing ones give you more versatility, but there’s something to be said for the drama of having the walls set aflame at your command. Ole Sheteptawy might think you’re Ra himself when he sees the room light up with the flick of your wrist. It’s both an effective mummy deterrent and a convenient, elegant way to light your home, so I mean, this is win-win, buddy.

And they’re all fueled by bioethanol, a renewable, environmentally-friendly energy source, which means that you don’t need to worry about planet Earth when you’re worrying about Numero Uno. The only emissions are heat, steam, and carbon dioxide — which is, I’m told, also effective at keeping away the undead. The bioethanol creates a beautiful dancing flame sure to terrify any mummy that sees it. And the freestanding ones don’t need any installation at all — you just set ’em up, turn ’em on, and watch as sweet security descends upon your homes: now perpetually mummy free.

The best part is that, once you’ve dispatched Sheteptawy once and for all, you’ve still got the most spectacular lighting displays of anyone else in town.

So maybe it’s not a curse after all! presents “Spiderlegs Everywhere”

ImageDon’t you get it, Danny? Now we can pack up and move just like that.

Sure, maybe it’s a little spartan, but think of the convenience!  I’ve consolidated our entire house into a series of lightweight, portable briefcases. That’s the beauty of Spiderlegs.

No, your mom is going to absolutely love it. Don’t like the neighbors? Well, saddle up, Cindy Lou, because every single item of furniture in our house is now a Spiderlegs folding table or chair. My office? Spiderlegs. Our living room? Spiderlegs. Our dining room? Spiderlegs. Spiderlegs everywhere. Now, if that little feud of your mother’s with Mrs. Potts next door gets any worse, we can pretty easily bolt.

These beauties will fold up at the drop of a hat. It takes maybe three seconds — five at the outside — and you’ve gone from the sturdiest bench you’ve ever put your butt on to a wooden carrying case that only weighs twelve pounds. We could have this whole house broken down and ready to be emptied out quicker than a speakeasy with a squealer. What better way to say to your neighbors “I really don’t appreciate that tree you planted next to the property line” than by ducking out like a thief in the night, leaving only the tattered remains of that above-ground pool we never finished rotting in the backyard, in full view of Mrs. Potts’ veranda? We could be out of here in an hour, Danny.

Seriously. This chair folds faster than a pair of twos on a fifty-thousand-dollar pot. You could break an office down in under eight seconds if you had to. Not saying that you’ll have to.

And then, the next thing you know, we’re holing up in an apartment in Reno, ready to bolt at a moment’s notice. Spiderlegs lets you set up and tear down quick and easy. And it’s not just practical, kiddo — look at that finish! That’s red mahogany over the choicest birch solids. Birch, Danny. And they even do custom sizes! Yessirree Bob. This is the furniture for us.

Yup, I’ve pulled out all the stops, and the moment — the moment — your mother says the word we are going to be out of here.

I’m just saying we might need to cool our heels in Mexico for a while.

Features To Look For When Buying A Bathtub

Features To Look For When Buying A Bathtub
Features To Look For When Buying A Bathtub

The bathtub comes in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, colors, styles and construction materials. A new bathtub can be had for as little as $300 or for more than $5,000. These prices do not include the cost of installation, which can add $2,000 to $3,500 more to the bill. It is important to do your homework when choosing the best bathtub for your home. And, if you’re renovating an existing bathroom, the price tag can run even higher if you choose to relocate plumbing fixtures.

The most important attribute when looking for a bath tub is the drain placement, you need to make sure where you would like to place the drain. Basically there are four outlets; center, left, right and universal.

Types and Styles – All of the bathtub types are constructed with a variety of materials: Acrylic, fiberglass, enamel-coated steel or cast iron are the most common, but bathtubs are also made from copper, stone and composite materials and wood. White and cream are standard bathtub colors, but you can also find other colors such as blue, brown, maroon, green and even pink. In terms of shapes, the most common is the rectangle, but selection abounds here also. Consumers can find heart-shaped, oval, round, corner-style, alcove, freestanding, drop-in and much more. Your shape selection will depend largely upon the size of your bathroom and the material used in the manufacturing of your bathtub.

Soaking Tub – A soaking tub allows you to relax in much deeper water unlike a regular bathtub. Your own soaking tub changes bathing from a utilitarian daily activity to a time for pure relaxation and reflection, especially when you add essential oils and bath salts to your bath water.

Clawfoot Tub – The clawfoot tub or claw-foot tub is originally made from cast iron and lined with porcelain. Modern technology has contributed to a drop in the price of clawfoot tubs, which may now be made of fiberglass, acrylic or other modern materials. Clawfoot tubs usually require more water than a standard bathtub.

Whirlpool Tub – A whirlpool is a tub fitted with piping, an electric pump and water jets. The pump circulates the water through the pipes using an underwater suction fitting and several underwater jets. Each jet contains a venturi, a vented constriction near its opening that injects air into the water. In most cases, the ratio of air to water can be adjusted–at a central control, at each jet or both sites.

Air Tub – Air Tubs have small holes that jet into the tub a steady stream of air that create a soothing, therapeutic stream of air bubbles. The intensity of the air streams can be adjusted by the individual using the air tubs.

The bathtubs can be installed in the corner which are designed to fit into a corner of the room. Corner tubs can come in Freestanding or Drop-in installation types. A drop-in bath can be any shape. A tub deck is created for the tub and the tub is dropped into the surround. The size of the tub deck is a matter of preference. Access will be needed for the whirlpool pump or air bath motor. Free Standing bathtubs are installed away from the wall, even in the middle of the room. They have a skirt that surrounds the bath. Free-standing baths may require a finished drain and a freestanding or wall mounted bath faucet. Most Freestanding tubs are offered as an air bath or soaking tub. A tile flange is used when the walls surrounding the bath are going to be tiled down to the top of the bath

And last but not the least he bathtub’s depth is an important feature. Many people enjoy soaking in a warm bath to rejuvenate the lost energy and to ease the pain in tired muscles. Soaking in a tub even reduces the stress levels that most people resort to a warm bath before going to bed. Soaking tubs are designed to allow a person to immerse the whole body with comfort unlike that with a standard tub that is only designed to soak the lower part of the body. The least depth available for a bathtub is 14-inches and the maximum is 72-inches.

How to buy a Toilet

How to buy a Toilet
How to buy a Toilet
AppliancesConnection carries a wide range of toilet models, this guide will help you to buy a toilet by telling about the many features. Before shopping for a new toilet, it is always good to familiarize oneself with the latest advances that help the environment by saving water and also save money on water and sewer bills.

Select Flush Type:

Dual Flush – Dual flush toilets handle solid and liquid waste differently, giving the user a choice of flushes. It is design to help conserve water and using less water to flush liquid waste makes sense.

Gravity Flush – The simplest and perhaps even the oldest of the toilet flushing system is gravity assisted flush system is the one that uses the gravitational power to flush the waste.

Siphon Jet – Siphoning-toilets incorporate an ‘S’ shaped water-way. The water-ways in these toilets are designed with slightly smaller diameters, so that the water-way will naturally fill up with water, each time it is flushed, thus creating the siphon action.

Double Cyclone Flush – The Double Cyclone flushing system harnesses the power of water and gravity to create a more powerful cleaning action. Two nozzles (instead of rim holes) use water more efficiently for a better rim and bowl wash and result in less trapped dirt and bacteria and less cleaning.

G-Max Flush – It has an extra-wide flush valve and wide glazed trapway offer increased flow, drawing water into the bowl more quickly, and then away more forcefully . And with G-Max’s powerful siphon jet, the system makes sure what goes down stays down.

Select Bowl Shape: There are two types of standard shapes available the Elongated bowl and the Round bowl. If for your bathroom space isn’t an issue, a toilet with an elongated bowl works great. If you have a smaller bathroom, or a half-bath, choose a round bowl toilet that will fit into tight spaces.

Select mounting style: There are three types of mounting system used in a typical flush design; Wall Mounted, Free-Standing and Floor. Wall mount toilets are not common and will usually only be used when replacing a wall mounted toilet because they require a different rough-in all together.

Select Height: Toilet height is another factor to be considered when buying a toilet. The American Disabilities Act (ADA) requires public toilets to be a minimum of 17 inch from the floor to the top of the seat. Standard height toilets are around 15 inch total from the ground to the top of the seat. The standard size is still great for the majority of people, it really is just a matter of preference. Comfort height toilets are becoming more and more common because they are actually really comfortable and much easier to get off of.

AppliancesConnection carries the top brands for toilets like American Standard, Ariel, Kohler, Toto etc. with a lot of choice in color.
