Moment sealants: advantages and varieties

Today there are many compounds for sealing seams and joints, but Moment sealants, which are manufactured by Henkel, are at the peak of popularity. Some variants of such sealants are often used as an adhesive. It should be noted the positive qualities of this composition, because it allows you to easily carry out any type of work. It can be used for domestic needs and industrial applications..


The German company Henkel has been ranking high in the construction markets for a century, one of the brand’s products is the Moment sealant. The popularity of this company is justified by the fact that the production uses the latest technology and equipment, which every year lends itself to modernization. But also research is carried out annually to improve the quality and reliability of products..

Features include the fact that the manufacture of products is based on maximum environmental protection. in strict accordance with all indicators of high quality. There are more than 200 types in the names of goods, but the main part is occupied by the sealant. Also popular are products such as foam and self-adhesive tape..


Henkel is engaged in the manufacture of one-component sealants, which can be based on silicone or water-based acrylic dispersion.

Today you can buy the following types of the Moment brand: sanitary, acrylic, bituminous, restorer, frost-resistant, assembly, high-temperature. They can be used for their intended purpose for a bathroom or kitchen, as well as for heating systems. To do this, in the place of leakage, it must be wound like a thread. After the cut-out is sealed, you need to wait for time to dry, after which grouting occurs..

For work, you can use volumes of 280 ml and 420 g, but before using the material, you will need detailed instructions.

A material with an acrylic component can withstand frost, it has a good adhesion rate, which allows it to be applied to any surface. The disadvantage of this sealant is that it cannot be used in places where constant moisture predominates. As a rule, such material has only white color..

Speaking of silicone sealants, they are made on the basis of polymers with rubber. Due to this component, the material acquires viscosity and elasticity, and can also harden at room temperature. In order for it to remain viscous, it is sealed in a special tube.

Depending on the scope of use, Moment sealants are divided into the following types:

  • building;
  • specialized;
  • car.

Also sealants “Moment” are divided into types according to the characteristics of the composition.

  1. Neutral. This type can be used not only for external work, but also for internal work. It has found its application in the construction of ships, as well as for sealing in refrigeration chambers. The color of this composition is white. And also such a sealant is practically odorless, and it cannot be used as an adhesive..
  2. Universal. It is made with the addition of acetic acid, due to which it has a pungent and pungent odor, and when processing non-ferrous metal, concrete and marble, it causes surface corrosion. This type of sealant is marked A on the packaging, which indicates that this composition is not painted. This material is made in two colors. The first is white, and can also be transparent. It costs much less than neutral, but does not differ in quality..

The Moment company manufactures products exclusively on the basis of silicone and rubber, and its service life can reach 5 years.

Henkel’s sealants have several other types.

  • Premium composition, which is created using silicone, due to which it has moisture-repelling properties.
  • Silicone-based high-temperature sealants withstand the effects of gasoline and oil.
  • Sanitary-type compounds also include silicone, but they are used for glazing shower stalls and similar appliances. They are transparent or white. Full hardening of this composition takes place within 20 minutes, that is, it dries very quickly.
  • Aquarium frost-resistant and based on polypropylene. Often used to seal painted plastic joints and glassware exposed to vibration. The color of this composition is only transparent..

“Moment Montage” has gray sealants in its range. The material includes polyurethane. This sealant has a packaging volume of 300 ml. It has found its use as a joint compound and for grouting. We also note that this material is highly resistant to chemicals, alkali, water and various types of acids, but it does not tolerate direct exposure to sunlight, under which it loses its elastic properties and color..

Flextec view is a universal composition based on a polymer material. Quite often, this type of material is used as an adhesive to join damaged surfaces. The main feature of this material is the ability to solidify under the influence of moisture. It belongs to the neutral type, since it does not have a pungent unpleasant odor and contains alcohol. It is often used for sealing windows, seams in split systems and for laying tiles..


All of them have negative qualities and advantages, regardless of the formulations..

General advantages of Moment products:

  • the ability to apply to any material;
  • elasticity and moisture repellency;
  • can withstand the influence of external factors, such as sunlight, high temperature;
  • wear resistance and strength, due to which it can be used even on highly mobile materials.

Due to these advantages, Henkel products have become popular all over the world. But the experts of this company advise not to neglect their own health and not to save. This means that if the choice is difficult, it is better to give preference to neutral compositions..

Scope of application

Sealing materials are used in various fields. The scope in which the individual type of sealant will be applied depends on its composition. For example, a silicone-based sealant “Moment Herment Silicotech” is used to seal the glass of shower cabins, bathtubs and swimming pools. Such a composition acts on the cause of the possible appearance of mold, fungus and bacteria..

But “Herment” based on bitumen is very often used in work with sewer pipes, drainage systems and for the restoration of roofs. In addition, this brand can be used in the process of construction work, when decorating a building inside or outside, as well as for filling roof joints..

It is also used for such purposes:

  • to obtain the tightness of the seams of glass products and windows;
  • for sealed installation of mirrors;
  • for masonry and repair of tiles;
  • for grouting after vinyl finishing of the room;

  • as a surface treatment, which will be further thermally affected;
  • instead of an adhesive, for fixing plumbing equipment to the wall;
  • for the purpose of sealing pipe joints.

A silicone-based sealant is used to make thermal insulation on the facade in a residential and non-residential building.


On the recommendation of specialists, before starting surface treatment with a sealant, you must first read the instructions for use. This is necessary, since the application technology may differ due to the fact that each type of composition has its own characteristics..

When performing work, it is recommended to use rubber gloves, since only in this way can the skin of the hands be protected from the effects of the composition.

In order for the material to diverge less, it is recommended to do the work accurately and correctly, as well as observe the order of work and the nuances of use, which are as follows:

  • as the masters advise, first it is necessary to prepare the surface, namely: remove all dirt, dust from it and, preferably, degrease;
  • then we put the package with the composition on the pistol and pierce the hole;
  • if the seam is to be thick, it is recommended to cut the end of the package to the required seam diameter and preferably obliquely;
  • when applying the seam, the craftsmen are advised to hold the gun at an angle of 40 degrees;
  • and you also need to know that the thinner the applied layer, the faster it will dry;
  • if the sealant is applied close to the surface, then, according to experts, there is a high-quality adhesion to the treated surface;
  • if more composition was applied than necessary, the excess must be removed immediately, and if you have not noticed, and the material has already frozen, then for these purposes you can use a solvent or a special tool (of course, you can remove the excess mechanically, but in this case surface may be damaged).

In order for an excellent adhesion to the material to pass, it is necessary to make sure that the material is still usable. If the shelf life is over, the adhesion to the surface will be lost..

For health safety, it is better to purchase an odorless sealant, that is, neutral, there are no toxic substances in the composition of such a sealant.


Judging by the feedback from consumers, Moment materials can be used in various fields. For example, for sealing windows with aluminum frames, for filling movable joints and door frames.

There are also reviews that such compositions are relevant in the construction industry when performing repair work. For example, window insulation.

According to the reviews of home craftsmen, such compositions have excellent adhesion to any processed material. Materials made of aluminum, ceramics, glass and so on are no exception..

Wooden computer tables

Everyone wants their workplace to be comfortable and organized. That is why many people pay great attention to the choice of a computer desk. Such furniture should be not only practical, but also multifunctional. And besides, any table should be stylish and ideally suited to a particular interior..

Wooden computer tables can be considered classics that never go out of style.


A computer table made of wood is a multifunctional structure made of an array of different types of trees. Such pieces of furniture are considered universal, since they are suitable for a variety of interiors. However, they combine best with the classic ones, since wood is always associated with a rich interior, reliability and beauty..

Wooden furniture is great for organizing workplaces, offices and offices. The greatest demand is for tables made of natural wood, since artificial models are considered not so durable and reliable. However, artificial options are no less in demand due to the favorable price..

Advantages and disadvantages

If you have already decided to purchase a computer desk made of wood, then you are not mistaken, because furniture made of this material has many advantages:

  • Furniture products made of wood are very durable and of high quality, since the array has an exclusively natural composition without any unnecessary additives;
  • Furniture of this type is considered safe and environmentally friendly not only for those who use it, but also for the environment;

  • If you properly handle such furniture and regularly take care of it, then it will serve for many years. It is not for nothing that some wooden desks, which are more than 100 years old, are still adorned in museums and are inherited;
  • It is also a huge advantage that wooden tables always look fashionable, stylish and beautiful. They do not become boring and do not unnecessarily burden the interior of the room..
  • Today, a variety of furniture stores and salons offer a lot of options for computer and wooden desks that fit equally well into the interior of a house, apartment or summer cottage. In addition, a huge assortment of shades and models pleases, among which even the most fastidious buyers will find what they have been looking for..

  • The disadvantages include the fact that wood does not like moisture and water, therefore, in rooms where these indicators are overestimated, it is best to place other furniture, because due to moisture, the wooden table will very quickly become unusable and mold will form on it. Despite the fact that wooden products are protected with a special coating, you should not risk it.
  • Tables made of natural wood are not a cheap pleasure, so if you decide to purchase a multifunctional table with an abundance of drawers and shelves for inventory, be prepared to spend money.

Big variety

Wood computer tables are always in great demand due to the abundant selection of a wide variety of models, including the following options from different types of wood:

  • Solid oak models. Such products are considered quite expensive, but the price of oak always justifies itself. The boards used to create tabletops and other parts of the table are always dense and durable, and in addition, they are not afraid of moisture, as they are impregnated with a special substance.

  • Solid beech tables can be a worthy replacement for expensive oak models. The colors of this material are often delicate, most often peach or beige. Many designers and decorators are very fond of beech, because over time it only changes. As they say, it ages beautifully with age.
  • Walnut furniture considered extremely bulky and heavy, a table for organizing a workplace made of such material will look very expensive and elite, since often the walnut is decorated with carvings.

  • Solid pine tables are considered universal, but they do not withstand heavy loads. They fit equally well into the working area of ​​a house, apartment or office. Thanks to special processing, pine is not afraid of moisture and decay. In addition, many experts believe that pine has a lot of useful properties, therefore it is considered extremely favorable to place such a table for working with a computer. This kind of tree is suitable even for those who suffer from allergies..
  • Ash. This tree is much harder than, for example, oak, so computer tables made of it will be several times more stable..

  • Solid birch. Such tables are considered very durable, sometimes birch furniture can even be compared to oak. However, when choosing such a table for the work area, be sure to pay attention to the tabletop coating, it should be of the highest quality so as not to deteriorate over time..
  • Maple tables are considered very unusual as they have a whimsical texture with a luxurious sheen. The downside of this tree is its strong susceptibility to decay, but the wood itself is dense, not afraid of various temperature regimes and moisture. The main thing is to properly care for such furniture, and then it will serve for many years..

  • Exotic options. Expensive options for luxury computer tables can be purchased from the most unusual tree species. They will be expensive, but they will serve the due date and will become a real highlight of the workplace. The most popular models of luxury tables are made from wenge and rosewood..
  • From laminated chipboard. Such models, of course, will cost several times cheaper than those made from natural solid wood, however, they can also serve the prescribed period..

  • Made of MDF. Computer tables made of this material are no less popular than all the previous ones. These tables come in all shapes and sizes, and prices don’t bite at all. Many experts note that this material has good operating characteristics..

Interior options

In order to choose the right table for the interior of your home, it is very important to know that any furniture must be in harmony with everything around. Be sure to pay attention to the fact that wood comes in light and dark shades. Light trees include ash, pear, pine, larch and some other tree species. To dark ones – red oak, plum, wenge. It is also important to note that today there are a lot of design techniques when the color of a tree can change dramatically or age artificially. Very often this is done with oak – bleached oak products are always appreciated by true connoisseurs of beauty.

For modern interiors, it is better to choose tables in the style of minimalism, in which there is nothing superfluous. A table top, graceful legs and a couple of drawers will easily help you organize your personal space in your office or study..

Subtle shades of wood, such as gray, beige, milky and their combinations, perfectly complement the Scandinavian-style work area.

Dark wood tables are perfect for the Art Nouveau style. Moreover, the table does not have to be the same color. Models look very unusual when the tabletop is darker, and the legs, for example, are white or metal.

For classic and English interiors, it is best to choose computer tables made of natural wood, dimensional options are permissible, which will emphasize all the luxury of room decoration.

For the loft style, you can pick up very unusual solid wood tables in combination with glass. Or you can pay attention to products of unusual shapes..

Art Deco computer tables are often also combined options, when the table top is made of solid wood and the legs are made of metal. Models stylized in antique style or with a very smooth surface of the table top are also welcome. As a rule, desks for organizing a workplace in this style are very roomy, so they can easily provide a comfort zone where everything is at hand..

For Provence and country styles, manufacturers produce many table models. Very often they are not monochromatic, but they may have a slight thread along the edge of the countertop or on the drawers..

In general, we can say that a computer desk made of wood is suitable for placement in any room, and no matter what shape it will be. When installing a computer desk for a child or teenager, it is best to give preference to light shades of wood, since darker ones are suitable for an adult’s personal account.

For studio apartments, where there is a combined living room, it is worth choosing a table that will ideally fit into the overall style of the room.

How to choose?

Today, you are unlikely to experience difficulties with choosing a table for a computer or laptop, since not only foreign, but also domestic firms produce a lot of furniture products, among which you can find comfortable products for organizing a workplace and placing equipment.

When choosing a table, it is best to give preference to trusted firms. You should also choose a table in person in the store, and not order it online. Only by seeing the furniture live, you can surely assess whether it suits you or not. It is important to clarify all the details and how and by whom the table was made, what load it can withstand and how to properly care for it.

How to care?

In order for any furniture product to serve its due date and even more, it must be properly looked after. Despite the fact that some breeds are still not afraid of moisture, it is better not to spill anything on the countertop once again and not to place such furniture in a damp room at all.

It is necessary to regularly take care of wood furniture using a special impregnation designed for a particular type. It is also best not to place the workplace right next to a window or next to a battery, as there is a risk that the material will burn out or deteriorate over time..

Computer corner tables with shelves and drawers

Computer corner tables with shelves and drawers

Whether we are working with documents, watching videos, talking on Skype or watching the news feed on social networks, we want to avoid feeling overwhelmed and tired after we got up from the computer. A well-chosen computer desk will help reduce the discomfort from sitting in front of the screen for a long time. If, in addition to comfort, it is important to make optimal use of the area of ​​a room or office, an impressive range of corner tables will come to the rescue..


Ideally, a corner table should be ergonomic, capable of combining convenience and compactness. The shape of such a model, of course, saves room space, even if it does not differ in its modest size. In addition, such products turn out to be more convenient for long-term work, since they provide easy access to working modules, because the distance to devices and objects lying on the table is much less than on a straight tabletop. Many drawers and wall-mounted shelves are easy to reach from your chair.

Corner computer desk is able to provide the correct eye-to-computer screen distance. Sitting inside the triangle formed by the table, a person looks at the monitor from a distance of at least half a meter.

An additional advantage is the placement of the system unit deeper than in classic models, it will not be on the side or directly under your feet.

Among the disadvantages of this type of furniture, we will name the psychological discomfort that occurs in some people, because they find themselves with their backs to others. Of course, this perception is purely individual, many, on the contrary, like the feeling of security that they experience while sitting at a corner table, because such a structure seems to embrace them, reliably cover and protect.

When using such furniture, there is a need for constant artificial lighting, if the configuration of the free area of ​​the room does not allow placing a table by the window. The price of the corner model is also always significantly higher than the classic one..


The whole variety of corner tables for a computer appeared on the basis of two types: diagonal and diagonal-perpendicular.

Diagonal tables the most compact, for their installation you need only a small square in the corner of the room, however, the functionality of such models is low, they have fewer drawers; table superstructures cannot be made large so as not to block the light from the window. You should especially think about the stand for the system unit, otherwise your legs will simply have nowhere to put, which means that quick fatigue due to an uncomfortable posture is guaranteed. Diagonal-perpendicular models take up more space, but this is more than justified by their functionality.

Table with various superstructures and cabinets is a hybrid of the cabinet and the table itself. The length of one side is determined by the cabinet, the length of the other can vary. Since products with diagonal placement are small, add-ons are rarely added to them, but they often come with pedestals that extend beyond the edge of the tabletop.

To models with diagonally perpendicular placement add shelves for speakers, documents, books, CDs, photos. Furniture that utilizes vertical space as much as possible is quite popular..

Variants with shelving also depend on the type of table. The symmetrical design of the corner furniture with a diagonal arrangement is convenient for the numerous shelves for storing files with documents. You can choose a rack, complemented by doors at the bottom. At home, such models are rare, in offices they look much more organic..

In corner tables with diagonally perpendicular placement the roomy rack is mounted on one side only. It can consist of one or several sections and have additional compartments. The design of such products is more interesting, they look very presentable..

Corner tables with shelving often chosen for home office use. Having chosen the height of the rack, the shape and number of shelves, you can place all folders with documents, books and other necessary things on it. Shelving shelves can accommodate a printer and speakers. In the corner there is a place for a computer desk with side tables, which also fit a lot of things you need for work or study..

Complete set with pedestals and shelves allow you to equip a real mini-office, in which office equipment and paper documentation are conveniently located. The presence of a separate cabinet for the system unit creates additional comfort.

On the corner table with built-in shelves you can position the computer with all the gadgets and accessories and all the items that you used to keep close at hand. There are many compact models with bottom and side shelves..

In superstructures, boxes are extremely rare, because looking into them will not be entirely inconvenient.

If you do not want to demonstrate the contents of any compartment, the presence of a blind sash will save.

Dimensions (edit)

The minimum length of the side tabletop of small diagonal tables is from 80 to 90 cm. Such dimensions solve the problem of the location of the main components of the computer, as well as additional devices. The height of the superstructures can be almost any, provided that they do not cover the window. The most efficiently used space is located at a distance of just over half a meter. The shelves above are usually filled with items that are less frequently used. The maximum length of the side worktops is about 120 cm. Shelves are usually mounted on the side..

In more spacious diagonal-perpendicular versions of corner tables, one of the side tabletops can be 130-140 cm long, and the second is assembled from pedestals, drawers, various superstructures, etc..

The depth of the corner models varies from 55 to 70 cm.

Materials (edit)

Most often, computer tables are made of chipboard, MDF, wood, glass and even metal. The first two options conquer with their affordable price. The appearance is not inferior to wood products, but if the edge is not glued neatly, the table will quickly lose its attractiveness.

Particleboard products are inexpensive, but due to the presence of formaldehyde resins that are harmful to health, many opt for products from MDF. Models made from this type of compressed wood are slightly more expensive, but such material is considered less harmful. It conveys the drawing of a tree and is not afraid of moisture. Wooden furniture is more durable than products made of chipboard or MDF, but it costs much more.

Metal tables always look stylish, but not everyone is ready to put such furniture in a room, because few people associate metal with home comfort.

Models made of glass are not appropriate for all interior styles, but they are ideal for high-tech lovers. Such furniture is especially good for small rooms, because transparent material visually expands the space..


In addition to classic monochromatic furniture, manufacturers offer combinations of several shades or more daring combinations of several colors. In a teenager’s room, you can buy a table in a brighter color with a pattern printed on the cabinet doors. Whatever the design of the room, you can choose an excellent color scheme that will wonderfully fit into the interior and will not look boring and dull.

How to choose?

Having decided to purchase a corner computer table, it is necessary to evaluate the area of ​​the room, layout features, distance to windows, location of heating devices, room interior, age of the user and his occupation.

There are many options for corner tables for a computer, therefore, almost any idea can be realized for a wide variety of premises. The possibility of an additional choice of side tables, shelves, drawers, wall cabinets makes the tables different from each other. You can store all sorts of little things and necessary gadgets in add-ons. Hanging cabinets allow not only to unload the tabletop, but also hide everything you work with from prying eyes.

In a table with drawers, you can perfectly place all the office supplies and other necessary and not very small items. Documents or things that are rarely used can migrate to the drawers. They are good for storing bulky items..

Having decided on what will be on the table, in addition to office equipment and gadgets, you can choose its configuration.

When choosing a table, it is worth considering a few simple rules:

  • the height of the user must be taken into account. The height of the table top varies from 64 cm (for a height of 150 cm) to 81 cm (for a height of 190 cm)
  • the small-sized corner model needs a shelf for the keyboard, otherwise there will simply be no room for work.
  • it is better if the compartment for the system unit is not deaf, since the lack of ventilation is clearly not going to benefit him.
  • in order for the table to last as long as possible, it is important to pay special attention to the quality of processing the edge of the table top, since this area is subject to wear to a greater extent.
  • The choice of material is traditionally influenced not only by the price, but also by the interior of the room..

Interior options

An important piece of furniture, the table reflects the character and tastes of its owner..

The straight lines of the table and its components will look organic in a room decorated in a minimalist style. Smooth curves of wooden furniture will decorate any interior.

A solid model made of wood for a study, a light metal structure of a fancy shape or a seemingly weightless model made of impact-resistant glass for high-tech and modern rooms, a bright table for a teenager’s room – there are models in the catalogs for any room, any budget, any user.

Scarlett coffee maker

It’s so nice to start the day with a strong and well-prepared coffee.. It’s great that now it can be done at the touch of a button, without leaving your home. This article will focus on Scarlett coffee machines. Consider some models and learn how to use them..


  • Availability of cheap models. Not all companies create coffee makers that are available to everyone. Due to the fact that plastic is used for the external decoration and some internal parts (for example, the horn for pouring coffee), the price of the device becomes more affordable.
  • Possibility to choose both carob and drip coffee makers. Not everyone likes it when coffee slowly fills the glass teapot and gathers dust on the stand. Someone is more pleased to start the process on their own. It’s good when there is a choice.
  • Compactness. If you are content with a couple of cups of coffee a day, the Scarlett device will be more than enough for you. Of course, due to the small size, it is impossible to fill in a large amount of water, but there are no miracles.
  • Ease of controls. Although the systems are not touch-sensitive, you can easily figure out how to use the device. As a rule, the device has no more than two knobs and an on / off button. Light indicators let you know when the drink is ready, and the heating systems keep the coffee always at the right temperature, and automatically.
  • Classic colors. Black, steel and white are the three pillars of color that the brand is based on. This feature is good because the devices easily fit into any interior and do not hurt the eyes..



Scarlett coffee maker, appreciated by many users is the Scarlett “SL-CM53001” horn-type device. She is quite capable of waking you up with a real Italian espresso, hammering in delicious foam. Thanks to the presence of a manual cappuccinator, you can make the following types of coffee: cappuccino, latte, flat white and some others..

Of the pleasant moments – stainless steel, which covers all parts exposed to water or steam, and the possibility of choosing the size of the portion. On the top of the coffee machine there is a flat (like a helipad) platform. It will allow you to conveniently arrange cups, sugar or spices, which will always be at hand to create the most delicious drink..

The instruction manual looks very concise. The model contains a removable water container, making it easy to refill. From the settings – just a couple of knobs and an on / off button. It doesn’t take a genius to figure it out.


The second model is a drip coffee maker called Scarlett “SC-038”. One of the most democratic in terms of price. As simple as possible – both externally and in terms of use. It has a small glass jug for 4-6 cups of coffee, and a built-in heating element that can maintain the desired temperature if you did not have time to drink a drink at one time..

One of the pleasant additions is a valve that immediately shuts off the coffee supply if you pulled out the glass kettle without waiting for the completion of the brewing process.

As for the operating rules, everything is very simple.: one on / off button – and your coffee is ready. Reading the reviews, it can be noted that some complain about the smell of plastic, but this problem can be easily solved if you monitor the amount of water. When it becomes insufficient, the heating element begins to give off heat to the internal parts of the machine. Simply fill the tank with water to the maximum level when starting the machine.


Another carob model that you can pay attention to – this is Scarlett “SC-037”. It differs from the previous carob model in its compact size. It is a couple of centimeters taller, but 16 centimeters narrower. This is a significant difference. For those who are used to pampering themselves with one cup of coffee in the morning and one in the evening, this device will be more than enough..

Feature to pay attention to when using the device: When you are frothing the cappuccino milk, be sure to top up the water again. Otherwise, you will not get steam and ruin the coffee maker. The model is equipped with a removable drip tray, which greatly simplifies maintenance and saves you time.

The last bonus, like the cherry on the cake, is a small measuring spoon that comes with the kit and allows you to pour the required amount of ingredients as accurately as possible.

Of course, the three types that you learned about today are far from all models, but we can say that these are the undisputed leaders in sales. Some because of their cost, others because of a successful combination of quality, design and all the same price. The fact remains that the company’s products are in demand and are almost always available in household appliances stores – if not right now, then on order.

In the next video – a review of the Scarlett SC 1032 coffee maker.

Refrigerator green

Refrigerator green

A modern kitchen is an optimal set of perfect mobile home appliances. She not only fulfills her immediate duties and functions, but also “plays” in the interior, creating special design solutions. For example, a green refrigerator can be a creative option for decorating a kitchen space. For some reason, there is a stereotype that the refrigerator should be perfectly white. But today this is no longer the case.

Green is not only good for the eyes. It also symbolizes environmental safety. Many manufacturers use green, salad, emerald colors to indicate an important fact: the production of household appliances of this brand is environmentally friendly..

Bright colors in the interior

Over the past few years, the interior of modern kitchens has been changing rapidly. Bulky household appliances are being replaced by mobile technical structures with striking designs. They will fill the kitchen with light, pleasant emotions, and this is due not only to the quality of technology, but also to its design features. A colored refrigerator is one of the innovations. Such a household appliance looks great in different colors..

Manufacturers use bright colors and tones. It can be red, blue, black, but green is the most popular. It is very simple to find explanations – the color of youth, freshness, good mood. A color that pacifies and positively affects the entire interior.

Manufacturers use warm and natural shades – mint, pistachio – they fit perfectly into any interior. By adding a few nice details for the kitchen in other tones of green – emerald, the color of juicy grass, you can disperse attention from the unusual color of the refrigerator to the entire kitchen space..

A limited number of world famous manufacturers are engaged in the production of green refrigerators. First of all it is Ardo, Atlant, and Smeg and Gorenje. They have excellent technical characteristics and are in demand among buyers..

Famous models

A green refrigerator is a special chic, a tribute to fashion and a desire to highlight your kitchen space through unusual colors. This is a non-standard solution, but very colorful, bright, which is liked by guests, friends and relatives. Manufacturers have taken into account the wishes of customers to diversify the color scheme used and offer multi-colored models of refrigeration units of standard dimensions..

Nice “green” prices

It is pleasant to realize that modern color design solutions have very little influence on the cost of finished products. Good quality home appliances have never been cheap. It is available as per its technical specifications. And the addition in the form of color proposals did not significantly change the final cost of the products. On average, the price for a green refrigerator of standard sizes starts at 12 thousand rubles.

Naturally, the pricing policy is built depending on the functionality, additional functions, sizes and capabilities. The larger the unit, the more features it has, the more expensive it is, despite its color.

Changing the decor of the room

It is easy to assume that the appearance of a green handsome man in the kitchen will be the reason for a large-scale reconstruction of the premises or, at least, for another cosmetic repair. A green home appliance requires an entire space to be refurbished. Without thinking twice, its owners fork out for new tiles for walls, flooring, exclusive whitewash, paints or wallpaper for walls, new chandeliers, lamps, dishes, small interior items.

Thus, the new thing fits perfectly into the new image of the kitchen, complementing it and making the area of ​​the room especially beautiful and cozy. The renovated kitchen has beautiful mint curtains, emerald panels, bright salad vases, new kitchen utensils in delicate greenish shades. The table is covered with a beautiful soft green tablecloth, and even the napkins have an emerald hue.

Thanks to the new thing, the room acquires an exclusive look and unique interior features.

How to make a chicken coop for 5 chickens with your own hands?

Today, chicken coops can be found in many suburban areas. In the construction, they turn out to be not as complicated as it might seem at first glance.. In this article, we will learn how you can build a small chicken coop for 5 chickens with your own hands..

Primary requirements

Do not think that there are no requirements for the construction of a chicken coop. In fact, here, too, the builder must take into account a number of important nuances in order for the construction to be reliable and of high quality.. Consider all the basic requirements for the construction of a mini-chicken coop for 5 birds.

  • Building designed for year-round operation, must be built exclusively from high quality, practical materials, to keep the rooms warm.

  • For pouring the foundation usually use high-quality concrete, which must be additionally covered with roofing material. Such actions are necessary in order to prevent the formation of harmful mold on the walls of the hen house..

  • To make the building more convenient, the inner surfaces of the walls are sheathed with plywood sheets. Subsequently, plywood is much easier to subject to various treatments from dangerous pests..

  • An aviary for 5 chickens is made from metal mesh. This process is not so complicated, it can be easily implemented on your own..

  • In order for chickens to demonstrate good egg production in any season, a person needs to think carefully about lighting inside the building. The backlight is always fixed above the bird feeders. It is allowed to use fluorescent bulbs, the power of which is 50-60 W.

  • One of the most important requirements is well-executed ventilation system. A window and a door will be enough for 5 birds. However, such a performance is more suitable only for the summer season. In winter, the door and window cannot be left open, so a person needs to mount a reliable ventilation pipe with access to the roof. On the other hand, an inflow hole is prepared above the floors. The resulting design will provide not only natural cravings, but also remove excess moisture from the chicken coop..

If the structure meets all of the above requirements, then it will last a very long time, and the chickens will be comfortable enough in it, which will have a positive effect on their health and egg production..

Choosing a place

For the construction of a good chicken coop in the country or in the village, it is very important to correctly choose the ideal place. This is one of the significant stages in the construction of such an outbuilding.. When looking for the optimal place for the future small chicken coop, it is recommended to build on several factors.

  1. The place should be well lit, since the well-being of poultry largely depends on the length of daylight hours..
  2. It is advisable to choose places located on the hills. If the chicken coop is located at a low height, this will allow much better ventilation of its internal area. In addition, precipitation does not accumulate in such areas..
  3. It is also important to take into account the direction of the entrance of chickens into the future structure. It is best to equip the entrance on the south side, since it is here that the sun’s rays will evenly heat the room and the ground in any season.


Having found an ideal place for construction, you can proceed to the preparatory activities. In no case should they be neglected.. Let’s consider in detail exactly how the owners should prepare for the construction of a small chicken coop for 5 chickens.

Drawings and dimensions

To build a really reliable and high-quality chicken coop for 5 chickens, it is important to first draw up detailed drawings indicating all the dimensional parameters of the future construction. With a detailed design at hand, it will be much easier to make an outbuilding without making mistakes..

The drawing of the future building must be very accurate.. The diagram should contain all the necessary marks, points for the location of perches and other components. 1 chicken usually accounts for a quarter of the perch space. Based on this calculation, you can calculate the length of the future bird roost. The thickness of the perch in diameter should be at least 4-6 cm.

The drawings always indicate exactly where the roost will be located..

It is usually placed in the far corner, where the poultry will be much warmer and more comfortable. The height of the floor in the hen house should be from 50 to 80 cm, and from the wall – 25-40 cm. The nests are also always marked on the drawings. They must be installed 40 cm above the floor. Dimensional parameters of one nest – 30x30x40 cm.

The area of ​​the building itself directly depends on the number of birds that are planned to be kept there.. For 5 chickens, the construction of 3 square meters is quite enough. m. A small poultry house will turn out to be compact, and in the construction it will be problem-free. A small building can be portable, so that it can be moved from one place to another if necessary. Stationary chicken coops it is better not to make it too small, unlike mobile designs.

This is especially true when the owners plan to further increase the number of chickens..

Tools and materials

To build a good chicken coop for 5 birds, you will need to prepare the following materials:

  • frame beam with a section of 4×4 cm;
  • planed boards;
  • slabs for cladding walls of the future construction (chip options are suitable);
  • slate, corrugated board or roof tiles;
  • window glass;
  • door and window latches, hinges;
  • mesh for enclosure fencing made of plastic or metal.

You can’t do without the right tools here, namely:

  • hacksaws;
  • saws for working with wood;
  • drill-screwdriver.

Plans for the construction of chicken coops

A small poultry house for 5 birds can be made by hand. The manufacture of summer and winter buildings differs in some nuances. We will understand the plans for the construction of chicken coops intended for operation in different seasons.


Let’s start with the summer option. Let’s see how to build it.

  1. To build a chicken coop with dimensions of 2×2 m and a height of 1.8 m, you can build a columnar foundation. Pegs or metal rods should be hammered along its perimeter. The thread is stretched between the pegs, measuring out the ideal horizontality.
  2. It is necessary to cover the pegs with strong ropes 20 cm from the soil. Then the markup is ready..
  3. Further, the fertile soil layer is removed. 8 holes are dug in the corners with a width of 50 cm and a depth of 60 cm.
  4. The bottom of each of the holes must be covered with a combination of sand and gravel..
  5. Next, a couple of bricks are laid and poured on top with a mixture of cement.
  6. Then they put 2 more bricks. The curbstone is laid out to the level of the rope.
  7. Finished posts are covered with bitumen or mastic. The cavities between the pillars are covered with soil. The construction mixture will grab in about 7 days.
  8. For a small chicken coop, you can build only 3 pillars with a lumber grillage on top.

The finished foundation is left for a month, and then they move on to the construction of walls.

  1. It is better to make the walls frame and build right on the floor of wood. Each wall is built separately.
  2. The walls are knocked down without distortions. It is necessary to leave openings for windows and boxes for collecting eggs.
  3. After the construction of the frame, you should go to the roof. Better to make it gable. They make it from rafter legs and crate.
  4. Further, the base of the roof is sheathed with suitable materials, for example, OSB boards..
  5. The gaps between different elements are insulated. A vapor barrier is laid on top of the insulation, and then plywood sheathing follows.
  6. The floor is made of boards with a thickness of 50 mm. Lay them in 2 layers.
  7. Semi-cut rectangular grooves for the passage of chickens along an inclined ramp.


Winter outbuilding build more insulated. The windows of such a building should face south. The temperature inside the construction must be at least +12 degrees. Walls are recommended to be made only of high quality wood.. It is advisable to build a small vestibule.

You can additionally install infrared heaters. Allowed to mount panels with film coatings.

When building a winter chicken coop, you must follow these rules..

  1. It is advisable to build a roof with a two-layer.
  2. Wall structures must be lined with heat-insulating materials.
  3. A building made of logs must be buried. The floors are complemented with bedding.
  4. Auxiliary frames are placed on window structures.
  5. If there is an attic, it is covered with sawdust or straw.

Arrangement of the chicken coop inside

We will figure out how to equip the inner area of ​​the chicken coop for 5 birds.

  1. Inside, you need to install nests, drinkers, perches and feeders. You can put trays for filling ash.
  2. The perches should be placed at a height of 1-1.2 m from the floor. If the birds fly very badly, the perches are allowed to be lowered..
  3. The nest can be built in the form of a rack or an external structure.
  4. It is better to place the feeders so that the bird cannot climb into them with their paws. There must be separate containers for dry and wet food.
  5. Drinking bowls should be kept closed so that the water is clean. You can build a nipple drinking system.
  6. The floor is covered with a mat 20 cm high.
  7. It is necessary to provide sufficient, but moderate lighting, which will be distributed over the entire area of ​​the chicken coop..

Warming and walking

When setting up a house for laying hens, it is important to ensure that it is warm enough. Consider how you can insulate a chicken coop at a summer cottage.

  1. It is necessary to insulate both the floor and the walls. Materials with minimal thermal conductivity are used.
  2. Install double window structures or triple glazed windows. Door leaves are also reliably insulated.
  3. If necessary, an outlet is mounted in the hen house. It will be useful in conditions of stable low temperatures. If there is a socket in the room, it will be possible to connect the heating system to it..

It turns out to be important not only heating the chicken coop, but also a place for walking poultry. Next to the poultry house, a small courtyard is required, in which the chickens can walk. Mobility and fresh air have a positive effect on the level of egg production of birds..

Walking yard must be fenced with a metal fence and covered with a strong net from the attacks of predatory animals and birds. If the greenery grows well in the fenced area, it will need to be left there, not plucked.

In this way, birds will receive additional nutritious food and vitamins..

Helpful hints and tips

Let’s get acquainted with some recommendations for the construction and arrangement of a “house” for 5 birds.

  1. To make ventilation in the hen house, it is advisable to use pipes of the same diameter. They must be protected with dampers without fail. This is necessary in order to shut off ventilation at a crucial moment..
  2. It is best to use lamps that emit light in the red spectrum for lighting the house. It is advisable to install them closer to the feeders so that the lamps illuminate the food for the birds well. Red rays will not dry out the air, will not overheat it.
  3. Under the foundation of the future construction, even at the construction stage, you can build a structure from pallets for collecting bird waste.
  4. It is not at all necessary to make a standard square chicken coop for 5 birds. A triangular house can also be very convenient. Often, structures of this shape are made mobile..
  5. The poultry manhole is recommended to be installed on the south side. The smallest width of this part is 30 cm, and the height is 40 cm. The manhole can be made aligned with the door leaf at the entrance of the structure. In this case, it will be necessary to cut through the element in the lower half of the door..
  6. A chicken coop for 5 birds must be built in stages, without neglecting any of the above stages of work. Many people decide to do without detailed diagrams and drawings, but this is a very big mistake. Most of the problems and inconsistencies occur precisely due to the lack of a detailed project of the future outbuilding..
  7. Use only high-quality materials for construction without damage, rot, mold and other defects.

Features of water stain

Stain – a wood tinting agent that penetrates deep into the material, adds color and maintains the natural grain pattern.

Water stain protects the wood from fungus and insect damage, thereby extending the service life.


Stain differs from varnishes and paints in that it does not form a surface layer. The pigment penetrates into the material, so it is not afraid of scratches and chips, while maintaining the natural structure of the wood.

There are two types of stain. The first group is water-soluble – it can be sold as a ready-made solution or in the form of a powder. Water stains are safe – they can be safely used for treating children’s furniture. They do not have a pungent unpleasant odor, penetrate deeply into the texture of the wood, have a low price and can be made independently..

Stained wood has the following qualities:

  • increases the surface resistance to abrasion;
  • the surface is less susceptible to mold damage;
  • reduced porosity of the material, which additionally protects against moisture.

Color density directly depends on the number of layers. The water-based stain lifts the outer grain of the wood during painting, therefore after this, mandatory grinding is required. If wood products are outdoors, then for additional protection, it is recommended to cover the top with a transparent varnish.

A subtype of water stain is the acrylic version, which is an emulsion. It has a wider range of colors and is resistant to sun fading. There is also a significant difference in price: acrylic is 6-7 times more expensive.

Non-aqueous stains include alcohol, oil and wax stains. Alcohol versions are made on the basis of aniline dye. They dry quickly but can stain. Oil stains are sold as a powder, diluted with a solvent. They dry quite quickly, thanks to the oil base, they allow you to mix different dyes, which is often used in decoration.

The wax materials create a protective layer, but do not penetrate deeply into the structure. After using them, the surface must not be varnished or treated with polyurethane..


Water-based stain has an extensive color palette that imitates all woods: from light beige to black. If you need a different color, for example, green, then you need to look for it among the non-water stains. To create a rich shade, it is necessary to apply several layers or add more dry component when making a solution..

All manufacturers accompany their products with samples of wood stains. When buying, you can easily choose the right tone. However, it is important to know that the same color will look different on different types of wood. For example, the shade indicated on the sample, which is often pine, will turn out to be darker on oak or poplar furniture, and reddish on mahogany, but on maple it will hardly change, since the material is quite dense.

The stains themselves can be mixed for a personalized finish. To obtain unusual effects, the basic tone is first applied, then with different strokes – a stain of a different color.

You can make the stain yourself. Combinations of various natural ingredients give certain shades. Changes in proportion lead to a change in shade.

The red color of the stain will give a decoction of the following ingredients:

  • larch bark;
  • onion peel (shade closer to orange);
  • crushed walnut shells with the addition of potassium dichromate solution.

Brown and mocha colors are obtained during the preparation process:

  • Decoction of bark in equal proportions of willow and oak with the addition of alder earrings. The saturation of brown will give crushed walnut shells.
  • Decoction of walnut shells and bark.
  • Strongly brewed natural coffee.
  • Brewed black tea, the strength of which affects the color.

Black and ebony can be obtained using:

  • decoction of oak and alder bark;
  • decoction of willow and alder bark.

The color of black ebony will give a solution of iron corrosion – for this, small glands need to be poured with vinegar and left to infuse in a dark place for two days. Black color can be obtained if you insist them much more, but not more than a week..

A gray color is obtained if, after staining with walnut broth, wipe the surface with vinegar essence. If you boil unripe buckthorn fruits, you get a yellow stain.

Cherry color will give a solution of potassium permanganate – this requires diluting 25 g of manganese in 0.5 liters of water. After processing, immediately wipe the surface with a soft hygroscopic cloth. To obtain a rich shade, apply several layers.

White wood furniture looks interesting. Instead of staining it, you can whiten it with a stain, for which it is better to purchase a ready-made white composition from the manufacturer. Most often it is found in an oil base, but it can also be found on a water base. Stain clogs the pores, thereby brightening the wood, while not coloring the pattern itself.


Among the well-known brands of stain can be distinguished “Novbytkhim”, “Latek” and Trae Lyx. St. Petersburg products company “Novbythim” has a wide palette of shades that mix well with each other. Stains are inexpensive in price, odorless, easily removed from the skin of hands and stained surfaces. They are quickly absorbed, making it easy to achieve a uniform layer. Used exclusively for interior work.

Consumers report rapid wiping off and color fading. The moisture resistance declared by the manufacturer, unfortunately, does not correspond to reality – spilled water or drops leave ugly light spots. But all the flaws in the process of work are easily erased. The colors are translucent, so many coats are required for a good saturated shade..

Against this background, water stains of another Russian company “Latek” look better. They improve the durability of the wood, thereby increasing the service life. After applying the stain, a special vapor-permeable film forms on the surface. Among the shortcomings, users note a significant difference in the color of the stain on the test sample from the result.

Swedish stain by Trae Lyx do not form stains during application and allow tint of previously painted surfaces. They mix well with each other. Among the palette of shades, you can find a white stain on a water basis..


Stain is easier to work with than paint, but smudges and stains can occur. If the tree has any defects or smeared cracks, then such imperfections will become clearly visible..

Stain application algorithm:

  • The surface must be clean. If there is exposed wood resin or oil stains, then they must be sanded and degreased..
  • Some wood species absorb moisture well. To reduce the consumption of stain, you can pre-moisten the surface. This technique will also help reduce hairiness after staining..

  • The stain must be shaken or mixed thoroughly. If the diluted composition turns out to be cloudy, then it should be filtered through a dense cloth or cotton wool filter..
  • You can apply the stain with a brush, foam rubber, roller, spray or cotton swab. It is necessary to stain along the fibers. If you “pour” a lot of liquid, then ugly smudges may remain. When painting a vertical surface, it should be applied from top to bottom..
  • If there are several layers, then each subsequent layer should be applied after the previous one has dried (after 4-12 hours). The finishing layer dries up to a day.

If a large hairiness has formed on the surface, then it can be sanded. The surface must be dry..

When it is necessary to process a large area, you can first use a cheaper composition, and for the finishing layer you can purchase a higher quality stain, thus saving on price.

If spots and smudges have formed, then they should be washed off with water or gently wiped off with acetone.. In some cases, only grinding will help. After that, apply another 1-2 layers of stain.

When the product is assembled from different types of wood, then after staining the areas may differ in color, even if initially there were no drops on them. This must be taken into account, otherwise you can damage the product. In some cases, it is better to use paint or varnish instead of stain..

Acquired shade may differ from sample when applied. To predict the result, you need to apply the stain on a bar similar to wood, and at the same time choose the desired shade and determine the number of layers. If there is no bar, then it can be applied to an area where it will not be visible. For example, when working with a wooden chair, you can use the space under the seat or the inside of the leg.. A poorly chosen color can always be corrected with a darker shade..

House projects up to 120 m2

House projects up to 120 m2 can be quite a remarkable solution for any site. Such structures can be erected from a gas block, brick or other materials, made frame, etc. In any case, the layout of country cottages deserves attention.

Options for projects of one-story houses

Buildings with an area of ​​up to 120 m2 is a very flexible concept, and it must be clearly specified.. In general, the size limitation has not only disadvantages, but also advantages. The most important of these is significant financial savings.

Buildings with a size of 110 square meters and less significantly simplify building and usually allow you to abandon the use of complex lifting machines. Moreover, the reduction of the building spot has a positive effect on the subsequent costs of the operation of residential buildings..

A good example can be a building from a gas block with a total area of ​​112 sq. m. It provides an excellent terrace with an area of ​​just over 56 sq. m. Inside the house there are a pair of bedrooms – 15.8 and 27 m2, respectively. Another bedroom has a size of 15.8 m2. The living room and the kitchen are not separated, but simply assigned to different sides of a single room; an 8-meter bathroom is additionally provided.

You can also consider a slightly larger option – 117 sq. m. – area. The porch is almost 7 sq. m. is enough not to push over it. The size of the hallway is almost 5 m2. A good boiler zone is also provided, thanks to which comfort in the house is ensured. There is also:

  • wardrobe;
  • kitchen;
  • 3 bedrooms;
  • terrace;
  • guest area;
  • hatchway leading to the attic.

Ideas for the layout of two-story houses

In this case, there is much more space for the embodiment of your ideas. For example, in one of the options, the porch area reaches 3.7 “squares”. From there, those who enter enter the vestibule of almost 9 square meters. m. And from the vestibule you can go to the office, to the bathroom and to the kitchen-guest area. There is also a boiler room on the first tier of this building..

The second floor contains:

  • two guest bedrooms;
  • separate master bedroom;
  • the second light.

An alternative option is to equip a 22-meter terrace. Entering the house from there, people find themselves in the hallway, which is also the living area. The kitchen can be accessed both from there and through a separate entrance. The size of the hall is 4.3 “squares”. There is also a bathroom with an area of ​​over 5.4 m2.

The hall on the upper floor is larger – the presence of the staircase affects. There is also a second light. The main leisure area is slightly larger than 23 m2. The bathroom is slightly smaller than the one below, which is understandable – it has an auxiliary meaning. There is even a relatively good balcony.

But in addition to the specific layouts of country cottages, when selecting a project, you need to pay attention to the material from which they are built.

  • Brick buildings are characterized by a very attractive design.. They are being built “for centuries” – and in many cases this common phrase is by no means an exaggeration. Dozens of years to serve for a brick in a masonry is not a problem at all. It does not burn, does not rot, it endures the effects of weather; however, problems are often the significant weight of the blocks and the forced seasonality of their use..
  • Often, for arranging an area of ​​up to 120 m2, a frame type of structure is chosen.. It eliminates or minimizes wet work. That is, construction in winter is quite possible, and it does not pose any special problems. The conventional wisdom that a brick is stronger than a “frame” is completely wrong, of course, if you follow the basic technological requirements. Only a building made of concrete or other comparable material can radically surpass a frame house in strength; and even the heat capacity of a brick, due to its higher thermal conductivity, is not such a convincing plus.
  • Houses made of aerated concrete and foam blocks can also be compared with brick buildings.. Any block structures are erected faster and easier, because the structural materials themselves are larger. It will be much easier to make a high-quality seam..

The foam block can be combined with brick cladding, which radically improves the appearance of the building. Aerated concrete and gas silicate have no particular advantages over the other two block materials.


Good style is almost always provence. He will definitely look cute and charming. At the same time, the idea of ​​harmony and visual simplicity is very carefully carried out. The surface is finished with light plaster. It is recommended to complement the windows with durable wooden shutters..

You can also take a closer look at classic style. Typical for him are rectangular or square houses. Arrangement of functional plinths is allowed. In addition to plaster, you can take facing bricks for finishing. The lower tier is predominantly trimmed with stone at ground level and slightly above.

Stone is actively used in style chalet. It is typical for him to use a stone first tier and a purely wooden second floor. Such a house fits very well in an area with hills and forest. The roof must have 2 slopes. It can be covered with either natural tiles or extra strong shingles..

Alternatively, you can consider:

  • Russian style;
  • modern;
  • Romanesque format;
  • Scandinavian approach;
  • country;
  • half-timbered house;
  • Japanese style.

How to determine the area?

The main consideration is very simple: you need to free up enough space on the site, but at the same time equip all the necessary infrastructure and premises inside the house. We must not forget about the arrangement of the vestibule, even if it is a modest area..

Once the overall size of the house has been determined, the required dimensions for each room must be assessed. It is also necessary to take into account the furniture that is to be installed in the room..

The minimum allowable area, judging by many years of experience:

  • entrance hall – 5 m2;
  • kitchen – from 10 to 16 m2;
  • bathroom – from 5 m2;
  • bedroom – from 10 sq. m.

It is recommended to combine the kitchen and dining areas. All passages and corridors must be made as spacious as possible so that they are comfortable.

If 4 or more people live in the house, the kitchen must be at least 12 m2. Depending on personal tastes and needs, you can equip a gym, mini-sauna, wardrobe, billiard room. For 4 people, 100 m2 is usually enough if you use this area wisely.

Other recommendations:

  • allocate at least 20 m2 to attached garages;
  • when combining a bedroom with a wardrobe, increase its size by 5-6 sq. m .;
  • create children’s rooms of 18-20 “squares”;
  • take into account the size of technical communications and furniture, sanitary requirements.
