May You Have a Happy AND Safe New Year

December 31, 2014 l Topics:Blogs l By K&N Sales Staff

When you go out to ring out the old year, make sure you make it to the new year safely and soundly.  Here are a few tips to make sure your celebration goes well, and you make it home in one piece.


If you are hosting your own party:


You’ve decided to make use of your customized kitchen remodel one last time in 2014.  That sounds like a great idea.  Keep these points in mind for the welfare of all your guests.  As the host, take the initiative of appointing a designated drive or two for the party.  If this is not possible, call a local taxi cab company to provide rides home for your guests.  Give people a non-alcoholic option if they so desire.  If need be, let guests know that they are very welcome to stay overnight in your home.  It’s another to show off your remodeled bathroom.


If you are going out on the town:


If you hit the road on New Year’s Eve, here are some ideas to help you make it back home safely.  First and foremost, don’t drink and drive.  If you are partying with a group, find a person in the group willing to not drink and be a designated drive.  Save the name of a reputable taxi cab company, and don’t hesitate to use it if you aren’t fit to drive.  If all else fails, stay where you are until you are sober.  It’s better to get home a few hours late than to take the risk of driving drunk.


May you have a happy and safe new year.  Contact K&N Sales to ring in the new year with an upgrade to your home.


Find A Tree That’s A Perfect Fit for Your Christmas Celebration

December 24, 2014 l Topics:Blogs l By K&N Sales Staff
Is your Christmas tree a real tree? Or is it artificial?  With the holiday upon us, there are positives and negatives of each kind of tree that you choose to celebrate season.   The Artificial Tree   On the plus side, an artificial tree can be used year after year.  Also, artificial trees are inexpensive when compared to live trees, especially when their cost is spread out over numerous years.  Storing artificial trees can be a snap if you have a customized cabinet space dedicated to them.  For example, Wood-Mode cabinetry, which is on sale a K&N Sales, provides a perfect option for keeping your artificial tree safe until next December. On the negative side, there are environmental issues connected to the production of artificial trees.   The Live Tree   There is nothing like the smell of a fresh tree to make it feel like Christmas in your home.  The experience of picking out a tree can be an annual tradition that leads to lifelong memories.  However, a live tree does shed its leaves and create a mess.  In addition, since it is a living thing, a live tree has the potential to bring insects and other living things into your home.   Pick What’s Right for You   Take the time to consider which tree option is best for your lifestyle and your home.  Decide on the space where you will put your tree before you make a purchase.  This gives you a chance to measure the tree and make sure it is going to be a perfect fit for your Christmas celebration. Contact K&N Sales for assistance with customized cabinetry options for storing your Christmas tree. Happy holidays!
