3 things you need to know about waterproofing your home.

Unpredictable and extreme weather conditions damage exposed roofs, terraces, external and internal walls in the long run. To avoid this, waterproofing home or building roofs and Terraces, parapets, sunshades and exterior vertical walls are as crucial as applying wall paint. This will help to protect your home from dampness and seepage.

Waterproofing is an often-overlooked concern when it comes to the checklists that home buyers have. Homeowners should understand the criticality of waterproofing, if not in-depth knowledge of concreting technology to ensure that their dream home remains truly waterproof.

Berger Paints- one of the oldest and most trusted names in the paint industry has been a part of Nepali homes since the early 2000s. Berger Paints Nepal offers an extensive range of products in home colours in Interior, Exterior and Undercoats segments- all certified with “The Green Pro Certification” and has lately introduced the “Waterproofing” segment of products to meet the growing demands of Nepali homes. 

Here are 3 things to know about waterproofing your home:

  • Never choose the wrong waterproofing material!

Each one of the available waterproofing materials has a specific use case. For example; PU Coat that comes with 10 years of waterproofing warranty is a liquid waterproofing compound for UV protection, while Damp Shield Elasto that comes with 6 years of performance warranty is a PU modified elastomeric liquid applied as exterior barrier coat for extended durability of Wall Paint Colour. Likewise, some waterproofing chemicals like Cement Mix Plus is an additive for cement concrete/plaster/mortars that improves the integral waterproofing properties of cement concrete and plasters. Choosing the wrong chemical will result in failure sooner or later.

  • Incorrect Diagnosis of a Leakage

Every homeowner wants the best colour for their house, but that wall colour can be damaged if there is an incorrect diagnosis of leakage. If leakage is detected during waterproofing, it is critical to diagnose it correctly. The source of the leakage is not always located near the visual marks it. After entering the body mass, water flows in all possible directions. Diagnosing a leakage correctly is the first step to fixing it.

  • Faulty External Plastering

If the external plastering of the building is carelessly done, it could result as being the entry points for water. For example, the holes provided in the walls for scaffolding are sometimes not filled properly nor corrected after filling. To tackle this, scientific waterproofing solutions like moisture meters should be used to detect and measure the percentage of water in leaking walls.

Modern colour schemes for your living room

The real beauty of a house lies in its walls. The right colour schemes dictate how well the furniture and furnishing look. With right colour schemes, you can let your walls do the talking while keeping decor to the minimum. Instead of shying away from colours, it’s time to unleash your creativity and use different colour schemes to give your house a unique personality.

Here are a few modern colour schemes that are contemporary and yet timeless:

  1. Blue Balance (5D1063) and Fabulous White (7P0185): The Blue and white combination is truly a classic but at the same it is chic. Blue Balance and Fabulous White bring out the best in each other. Blue Balance wall brings out the crispness of the adjoining wall that is painted Fabulous White. The two colours together ooze relaxation making it an ideal colour of your bedroom. Blue Balance wall provides a perfect background for light-coloured furnishing and furniture. To nail this look, scatter some pink cushions or a pink throw blanket to create a sugary-sweet aesthetics.

  2. Park Party (8T2653) and Castel Ford (8D1695): Sophisticated and classy, gray and black are one of the underestimated colour schemes. When used rightly, the two colours can make your house look modern and futuristic. Here the Castel Ford accent wall features contrast with the Park Party wall, creating a complete look. The Castel Ford wall creates a dramatic setting for wall art, furniture and accent items. The light-coloured furniture and patterned rug make the room intriguing to look at.

  3. Peach Smoothie (1T0539) and Gleaming Shells (1T0531): One thing that millennials have taught the world is that you should never underestimate the power of pink. That’s why in this beautiful room, we see not one shade of pink but two. For a minimalist look, pastel touches of Peach Smoothie and Gleaming Shells add a sombre and pretty touch to the room. To bring out the crispness of the two shades of pink, introduce a darker shade of pink in the form of a chair or sofa. To break the monotony, bring into the scene plants and a rose gold standing lamp shade. To introduce pink into your home, paint all the walls in shades of pink, keep the flooring and ceiling light-coloured. To prevent an over-the-top look, keep the wall trimmings and windows white.

  4. Summer Sun (3A0386): There’s no other colour which is as uplifting as yellow. However, not many warm up to the idea of painting their walls yellow. To introduce the cherry vibe, paint the part of the walls Summer Sun and let rest of it remain white. To create a dramatic effect, choose a couple of furniture pieces in yellow. Ensure there’s enough natural daylight to bring a breezy, airy feel to the room. Break the dominance of yellow with a white coffee table, gray cushions, and plants.

8 Nature-Inspired Decor Ideas to Transform your Home Decor

Nothing is as comforting and relaxing as being closer to nature; once-in-a-week park walks, weekend family picnics, and occasional trips to naturistic destinations, these are just some of the things we enjoy doing to connect to nature and the outdoors.

However, there are ways more than one to bring naturistic vibes indoors. Over here, we show some:

1. Tropical living room fun

Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could get the feeling of getting sun-kissed in a tropical beach or exploring a tropical rainforest in your very own living room? Palm plants exude similar vibes; bring in a couple of potted palm plants and add a naturistic touch to your living room. Comforting elements such as plush area rugs and wooden furniture items can be the right additions.

To imitate the airy, cool aura of tropical places, create a light-coloured backdrop by choosing neutrals such as white and beige. Can’t decide upon the right wall colours? Our colour experts at Berger can help you. Get in touch at 16600123432 or email us at customercare@bergernepal.com.

2. Hang ‘em ferns

Rarely do we put efforts to add visual interest to our rooms’ ceiling. However, you can avoid leaving your rooms’ ceiling looking plain by hanging indoor fern plants. Choose hand-woven baskets for a sophisticated naturistic look.

3. Unmistakable wicker touches

The perfect way to complement the greenery you’ve added to your rooms is by choosing a couple of wicker furniture essentials such as chairs and a table. The natural look of wicker furniture items can balance the warmth factor. Keep wicker furniture items in clusters to make them a focal point.

4. Give way for freshness

Have a living room with a balcony view? Welcome the positive and refreshing vibes of bright summer days with greenery. Keep different types of potted plants such as areca palm, English ivy, and dracaena in your balcony space to create a garden-like aura.

5. Tasteful florals

Floral prints can work wonders when adding naturistic inspirations to your rooms. In your bedroom, you can’t go wrong in bedsheets and pillow covers that have colourful floral patterns. To create a themed look, choose bedsheets, pillow covers, and drapes having the same floral prints.

6. An inviting porch

Let the naturistic inspiration of your interiors reflect on your porch with a vintage-style bare wood double armchair. Choose a bare wood stool and a couple of potted plants to add more depth to the overall style of the space.

7. Elegant window treatment

Draw attention towards the windows in your rooms by getting the treatment right. Place small indoor plants in sophisticated ceramic pots and keep them in your rooms’ window sills. Choose various pot colours to add a bit of quirkiness.

8. Tea time by nature

There’s something special about enjoying freshly-brewed tea in your porch or balcony, while soaking in the sublime evening sun and the freshness of the outdoors. Make this experience more memorable by creating a small tea time space. In your balcony, bring a small set of table and chairs; it’s best if the furniture items have a natural finish.
