Renovating a home is a complex project and I think anyone who has experienced it will understand. However, most owners are engaged in decoration for first time, and are still at a loss, if they do not understand at all. So what are taboos in decor design? In addition to being beautiful and practical, safety issues must be considered. Here are a few more important ones that I want to share with you.
The load on balcony is too high
The balcony is not supported by beams and columns, and load it can carry is relatively small, so a lighter weight should be chosen when choosing a material. Also, make sure that when finishing, do not remove two walls connecting balcony and interior, this is only support for balcony. If you change it, it will greatly reduce load on balcony.
The ceiling is too big and too depressing
When finishing, some owners, in pursuit of a sense of luxury, will sheathe all four walls with tiles, and even make three-layer volumetric ceilings on original ceiling, which is impractical. Thus, not only will total area of \u200b\u200bthe house decrease, but cost of finishing will also be high, and this does not contribute to fire safety. If ceiling is too low, it will make whole room feel oppressive.
Unauthorized dismantling and modification of gas pipeline
When decorating premises, it is necessary to pay attention to safety requirements of gas pipelines and equipment, and also not to make unauthorized dismantling and modification of pipelines so as not to affect normal operation of gas pipeline system. In addition, it should be noted that horizontal distance between power pipeline and equipment and gas pipeline must be at least 10 cm, and clear distance between intersection of wire and gas pipe must not be less than 3 cm, so as not to cause a fire.
Destruction of load-bearing walls
When renovating a home, if you want to punch holes in a wall, remove walls connecting a balcony or doors and windows, increase size of original doors and windows, or build new doors and windows, you can damage load-bearing wall, causing localized cracks in building. Seriously , it will also affect earthquake resistance of house and shorten life of building.
Don't drill holes in a concrete hole
Do not drill holes in concrete perforated slabs. This will damage structure of house and reduce strength of building. When decorating house, we should pay attention to try to avoid drilling holes, drilling holes, and installing artistic lighting fixtures on round hole concrete plate, otherwise round hole plate structure strength will be damaged, and there will be safety hazards. . The above points are decoration taboos that are shared with everyone and must be read before decorating.
