This is a great article we found in our newsfeed today:
CLAWFOOT TUBS ARE GROWING INTO one the most common remodeling necessities. A stand-alone tub can transform an entire bathroom. Accent colored tubs can also liven up your three year old paint job. Legged tubs are easy to install, because they do not require any major construction. You can’t go wrong with replacing your shower with a Clawfoot tub; in exchange you’ll receive more comfort, better durability and many more compliments.
After a long day at work one of the first things on my to do list is to take a nice calming shower. There is just something about the feeling and sound of water pounding down that can relieve stress and pent up energy. Not all showers or shower heads are created equal though. There are quite a few different shower head selections out there, each with their own ups and downs.
Height, spray, and water pressure are at the top of the list when it comes to criteria for choosing the perfect shower head and shower options.
This is the most common shower head. These are permanently mounted to the wall at certain heights. The downside to this is that once they are mounted they cannot be moved. This is extremely inconvenient for those giants out there. The only adjustments that these are capable of are the slight movement of the neck. Some of the newer low flow options can be extremely low and leave something wanting and cause a person to have to stand in the shower for ages just trying to rinse the remaining shampoo out of their hair. However, there are options with a few different spray options which may make up for this.
Does your bathroom have that dull feel to it? A lack of color could be the problem. Plain, neglected white walls seems to be a common theme with almost every bathroom we see these days. White walls have been around since the victorian era as a way to promote cleanliness, however, times have changed and fashion has stepped in. There are other colors that still allow you to see the dirt if you choose and there are plenty of cleaning options to keep your bathroom up to the highest standards. The easiest way to combat the dull bathroom syndrome, “DBS” as we call it, is to add a little color to your washroom walls.
Believe it or not, bathroom fixes are important. You might be wondering “How can a room that is only used a few hours a day be so important?” The answer is relatively simple. Bathrooms are a place of relaxation. It’s the only place in a busy household where a person can find some peace of mind. Bathrooms can be a sanctuary for the over-worked, who simply need some time to relieve the heavy burden of life’s hardships. It’s an escape, in addition to its more obvious hygienic and septic functions. But because it is indeed all of those things, it’s important that we take good care of our bathrooms. They should not only feel safe and comfortable, but they should also work very smoothly and efficiently. This is why a little maintenance, once in a while, can be so vital to the well-being of your bathroom – and by extension, your own peace of mind.
Have you ever gotten up to take your morning shower and discovered that the water pressure was significantly lower than before? Does that annoying exhaust fan in your bathroom make you cringe every time you flip the switch? If you said yes to either of those questions, then it’s time for you to make the change. All of these problems can be fixed, over the course of a weekend, at a relatively fair price.
1. Replacing your old shower head.
The first step is to determine what sort of improvements you want to make. Making the switch from a boring, inefficient shower head can be as simple as singing the alphabet. It’s also cheap and economically friendly.
We all know and love summer for the BBQs, beach shenanigans, or for the slightly less active, excellent online sweater sales. After all that time spent outdoors (or indoors, at the computer), a lot of people
need enjoy a nice shower to get all that sweat, sand, and grass clippings off of them. That’s why this summer we are adding a whole new selection of showers, tubs, showertubs, tubshowers, and shower panels to our bathroom collection.
The Gaston Steam Shower And Whirlpool Tub is a behemoth of a shower bathtub combo. On the one hand, its a luxurious steam shower, but on the other hand it is a soothing whirlpool tub. Not only does it do both functions well, it is crammed full of extra features that make it stand out. Its waterproof, LED control panel even has a built in FM tuner the plays through the marine grade speakers! Finally, something to drown out my off-tune singing in the mornings. No one needs to hear my Aaron Neville impression at 6AM.
Hey, it’s cold outside! Haven’t you noticed? And you may have also noticed that it’s getting cold inside, as well. Sometimes it seems it doesn’t even matter if we have central heating running at full-tilt. It still gets simply shivery in our homes – and especially the bathroom!
Most bathrooms are designed to allow for ample ventilation (to prevent mold), so they naturally don’t retain heat and insulate as effectively as other rooms. To say nothing of that early morning chill you get from sitting down on the toilet seat… BRRRR!
So, here’s a crazy idea; or maybe, a not so crazy idea: why not outfit your bathroom with an electric fireplace or a space heater?
Ah, the late-night trip to the bathroom: a sometimes-necessary but always-maligned ritual.
We’ve all been there, stomping slowly down the hall like a zombie (perhaps even less gracefully), stepping across the bathroom threshold, flicking on the lights and getting completely blinded in the process. Perhaps inevitably, you stub your toe and emit a few choice words into your echoing bath chamber.
Once your business is done, you march to the lightswitch (don’t forget to wash your hands!) and flip off the vanity lights, and are blinded once again as your eyes are forced to re-adjust to total darkness. By the time you return to bed, you’re still seeing stars and halos, your toe is still hurting, and it takes you another fifteen minutes for your eyes to settle and the slight buzzing headache to go away so you can fall back asleep.
But what if we could enjoy our late night trip to the bathroom without having to blind ourselves in the process (and still see our surroundings well enough to “aim” properly)? What if we didn’t even have to raise a finger to turn on a light switch?
Is your bathroom a cell, or an escape?
Bathrooms aren’t typically thought of as places to just “get away,” which is unfortunate, because where else in your home do you get so much privacy? Turning on the television in your living room isn’t really an escape, because you are still surrounded by distractions. Reading in bed isn’t really an escape, because your spouse is probably right there with you, and can pull your attention away from your book at any moment.
