Best Practices for Networking on Archh

With the Internet, networking has transcended boardrooms and office colleages. Architects, Interior designers, Material Suppliers etc. are increasingly putting their work out online. If everything you need is on the Internet why not meet and interact with people who post them virtually? This is where Archh comes in; here are some tips on how you can use Archh to network

Complete your profile

Any user of Archh should do is complete his/her profile. Yes, it starts with something that simple. By this we mean your personal profile, projects folder and business profile. Let your personal profile reflect your personality, keep it vibrant and interesting. Regularly uploading projects, both those done by you and those that inspire you (more on this later). Most importantly fill up your business profile. This section is what your clients will look up first.

Follow More, Interact More

Networking online is still based on the same offline principles. It’s all about reaching out. Make sure you follow as many people who are relevant to your work as possible. The ‘Network’ tab is available on everyone’s profile, this is a great way to discover people in other people’s networks and form peer to peer connections. ‘Liking’ or Commenting on projects and posts by others on Archh will increase your visibility within the community

Upload Projects that would peek interest

Now let’s face it, you would only follow people who have interesting information to share. This is a two way street. The simplest way to gaining more followers is to put out interesting content. Upload projects regularly. While it’s a great idea to share projects you have personally worked on, you can also share 3rd party projects (with due credit).

The art of choosing the right flooring

While selecting the flooring material for a room, multiple aspects need to be factored in. These include the function of the room, usage, desired feel and of course your budget. But before getting into these factors, a sound understanding of the pros and cons of the various flooring options is very crucial. Here is a quick low down.

Carpet

Carpets are stylish, comfortable and feel great to walk on. Carpet flooring provides excellent insulation from the cold. Wool carpets are the richest option you can go for and are far more stain resistant. The downside is that they are the most expensive kind of carpets out there. Cheaper options like Nylon and Polyester carpets have been a popular option. Synthetic materials tend to be more durable and far easier to clean. Polyester has an added advantage of resisting moths and mildew.

Laminate

Laminates opens up a variety of flooring designs that would otherwise prove tiresome to maintain. Wooden laminates are the most popular, giving your home/office a chic and warm feeling and a margin of the price of wood. Laminates are stain and scratch resistant, on the downside they can’t handle too much moisture. Too much water can even permanently damage the floor.

Hardwood

Hardwood, in addition to looking great can really add value to your home/office if you are viewing it as an investment. However, they might require resealing every now and then. Dirt accumulated between boards can be a task to get rid of. Hardwood flooring is recommended only if you are in for the fancy of it, when it comes to functionality they might not be the best option.

Tile

Tiles are hands down the most commonly used flooring material. They are easy to buy, easy to install and moisture resistant. However there are more cons to tiles than pros. They crack easily. They aren’t the most comfortable surfaces to stand on. However they are a good fit for rooms where you won’t be spending too much time in and that require moisture-proofing, like bathrooms.

Vinyl

Vinyl is one of the most versatile flooring options. They are available in planks, sheets and tile formats with countless finish options ranging from wood to tile-like finish. There is no need to wax these floors, a regular sweep and wash once in a while should do the trick. Inlaid vinyl have imbedded colour and can look very rich.  Printed vinyl is the cheaper option, which as the name suggests is just a large sheet with the pattern printed on it.
