Quick And Easy Bathroom Decor ChangesWritten by Duane Jones
Are you tired of way your bathroom looks? Don't feel bad, a lot of folks are in same boat. The bathroom is one room in home that can look drab and run down very easily. And what if you don't have an unlimited budget to make changes in fixtures and plumbing? Well take heart, there is lots that you can do for very little money that will totally and radically improve decor of your bathroom.
One of biggest problems with bathrooms is their tendency to get cluttered. You know, towels hanging all over place, bath products on top of vanity and on shower floor, and things like that. So if you really want to make a 100% improvement in your bathroom clean up clutter.
Fortunately, that is very easy to do and inexpensive. If you go to any WalMart or Target store, you will find plenty of organizer products for use in bathroom. They are also very cheap. So get some of them and start to install them so that most used products and items are within easy reach of wherever they would be used in bathroom. If you make storage spot convenient most people will continue to put it back in it's place after they use it. If you make storage spot even a little difficult to access, you will see those items left all around wherever someone finds a spot for it.
Next, get some extra towel racks and install them so that there is a towel holder within easy reach of almost anywhere in bathroom. Extra towel holders mean that even used towels can have a spot to be hung up instead of just left lying over tub or shower stall door. Another advantage decor-wise of having extra towel bars is that you can use some of them to put up fancy towels for show that will really pick up appearance of room and highlight colors that you used in your bathroom design.
Cabinet Hardware 101Written by Scott Touchton
Cabinet knobs and pulls are now being used by designers to add finer details to a home’s overall decorating theme. Manufacturers of decorative hardware are making designer’s job easier by offering more styles and design options. Emtek Products is one of these companies who manufacturers door, bath and cabinet hardware in various collection styles so that homeowners can have hardware with consistent styles and finishes throughout their home.
For example, homeowners with smaller children can choose cabinet knobs and pulls for their children’s bedrooms in bright primary colors, animal shapes or pictures of clothing items such as sock knobs for sock drawer and shirt knobs for shirt drawer.
Cabinet knobs are also produced from a variety of different materials venturing away from more standard solid brass. Hardware customers can now choose products made from sandcast bronze, wrought steel, copper and chrome.
There are also many different combinations of types of hardware that you can use throughout your home. The more common selection is to use cabinet knobs on doors that swing outward and to use horizontally positioned pulls on slide out drawers. Pulls can be used throughout using pulls horizontally on slide out drawers and vertically on cabinet doors. Cup pulls and bin pulls are also being used more as they become more popular with designers.
