Bathroom Vanities with Louvered Shutter Style Doors

October 17th, 2014

Looking for Bathroom Vanities with Louvered Doors? You’ve come to the right place. The idea behind the louvered design was spawned from the need to keep snow and rain out while allowing air ventilation from the roof. These slatted pieces allowed air to escape from the interior of the home while preventing exterior elements from entering the home. Now that our history lesson is over, we can proceed to these beautiful louvered vanities.

Louvers are akin to window shutters and the design has also been applied to attic vents. The adaptation to the bathroom cabinet allows you to continue this rustic and country theme throughout your home. Louvered vanities also allow ventilation to the interior of your cabinet, something only possible with open shelving vanities.

The French Provincial Bathroom Vanities that You’ve Been Looking For

October 13th, 2014

French provincial bathroom vanities differ from Parisian furniture and French Royal furniture. The style comes from the provincial towns of France like Blois, Orleans, Lyon, and Liege. French provincial design holds a cultural identity that is subtlety distinct from styles of the towering metropolis. French provincial is a blend of French, country and rustic styles of decorating. Let’s take a look at some of the key features that identify this antique style.

Key Features of French Provincial Furniture:

  • Cabriole legs; dual curves vs bowed legs. Much more elegant and artisanal.
  • Scalloped Carvings have light grooves in them similar to the shell of a scallop.
  • Wheat Pattern Carving that are reflective of the country surroundings
  • An aged patina that is the result of polish and grim building up over time.
  • Emphasis on the carving rather than the paint, stain, or finish.

This post will highlight the beauty of French Provincial Vanities. If you do not find what you’re looking for, you can also browse the website to look through thousands of antique, transitional, and country bathroom vanities.  You can click on the images for more information about the particular vanity you’re interested in.

Why the Economy Going Down the Toilet is a Good Thing

October 8th, 2014

Seven years after one of the worst economic recessions in American history, the American economy is still in the toilet, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. You see, toilet sales are directly connected with the general health of the American economy, the housing market in particular.

According to toilet manufacturer American Standard, toilet sales have risen 28% since 2011. This indicates that home improvement and home remodeling projects are on the rise. Along with the automotive industry, the home improvement industry is one of the biggest indicators of the nation’s economic outlook.

How to Avoid Ebola Contamination

October 7th, 2014

In lieu of the recent Ebola Outbreak, I thought it would be appropriate to discuss what we can do to avoid Ebola contamination. First, what is Ebola? Ebola is a rare but deadly virus that causes bleeding inside and outside of the body. The virus damages the immune system and the organs causing levels of blood-clotting cells to drop; ultimately leading to uncontrollable bleeding.

Also known as Ebola Hemorrhagic Fever or the Ebola Virus, those infected have a 90% mortality rate. Thomas Eric Duncan returned to the U.S. from Liberia on September 20, 2014. This is the first documented case of Ebola here in the United States. Ebola is very serious and you and everyone in your family needs to know how to avoid contamination.

What You Need to Know to Avoid Ebola Contamination

How is Ebola Spread

Ebola is spread by skin contact (a simple handshake) or contact with bodily fluids (needles, bedding, clothing) of infected persons. Often times those who care for those suffering from the virus end up contracting it themselves. Similarly, people who bury those who have died from the disease contract the disease as well.
