How To Make The Most Of Your Box Bathroom

Whether you’ve just moved into a new property that happens to have a small bathroom or have been living with a small bathroom for a while, you may be unsure of how to make the most of the space. The fact is that sometimes you have to compromise on aspects of your home, such as on a small bathroom for a property in the ideal location. The good news is that there’s a lot that you can do with a small bathroom, it’s just a case of having an open mind and being willing to be creative. To help you to get started, below are some tips and tricks for making the most of your box bathroom.

Combine the bath and shower

In a small bathroom, it’s impossible to have both a bath and shower separately installed, so it’s best to combine them both by installing a bath with an overhead shower. Although you may want a separate bath and shower, there’s no need for both, is there? A lot of bathrooms have baths and showers combined, and they look great. It’s not like you can use both at the same time anyway, is it? Remember, when it comes to small bathrooms, you have to save space wherever you can.

Decorate in light shades

When it comes to the shades that you use in your bathroom, steer clear of dark tones as this will only make it look smaller. Instead, it’s best to incorporate light, bright shades, as this will help to make the space look and feel darker than it actually is. If possible, it’s also worth having a large mirror hung opposite the window as this will bring more natural light into the space and will also give the illusion of the room being larger than it is.

Be choosy about your shower screen

In a small bathroom, having a shower screen that swings outwards isn’t ideal. So instead, it’s a good idea to look at your other options. You could opt to have a shower curtain instead of a shower screen, but these don’t tend to work as well. Ideally, you want to look at a wide collection of shower screens, such as these Hawthorn shower screens, to get an idea of what would work well in your bathroom, such as a folding shower screen, for instance. Get creative when it comes to your shower screen and think about the dynamics of the space.

Store vertically

Storage space is often seen as being an issue in small bathrooms, but if you’re smart about how you choose to store stuff, it doesn’t have to be an issue. The best option is to have a built-in storage area created, taking space from the room next door. If this isn’t an option, then the next best thing is to store vertically and have your storage units attached to the walls and off of the floor, so that floor space isn’t compromised.

Don’t let your small bathroom cause you problems, get creative and make the most of the space that you have.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
