The Dos And Don'ts Of Renovating Your Bathroom

Renovating your bathroom can transform it from a dull and downtrodden room to one that is bright and full of style. So there is no wonder that lots of homeowners are always eager to decorate theirs whenever it starts to show any signs of aging. Even though lots of people start off keen to work on their bathroom, they can often get very frustrated at just how much work needs to go into it to make it perfect.

But you shouldn’t let all this hard work put you off a bathroom renovation. To help you out, I’ve come up with a set of dos and don’ts to keep in mind, which will help you get everything done within a reasonable timescale and budget.

Don’t Ignore Old Pipework
When you are renovating your bathroom, it’s always a good idea to check out all of the pipes. This is especially important if you haven’t exposed them since you have moved into the property. Some types of bath and sinks may still be connected to old pipes that are now decades old. If this is the case with yours, you should replace them. Even though this may add to the cost of the renovation, it will save you money in the long run. Very old pipes are at a very high risk of bursting, which can be extremely costly to repair.

Do Create A Design Plan
Lots of people don’t consider the design of their bathroom to be one of the least important parts of a bathroom remodel. However, this couldn’t be further from the case! In fact, you will find that it pays off to take some time to come up with a design plan before you start. You can play around with your different ideas in the plan, and figure out which will work well together. This will also give you a chance to consider the most practical layout for the room.

Don’t DIY Big Jobs
You may think that carrying out DIY is a great way to save some money. This is true, but it is only worth thinking about for small jobs that anyone can do. When it comes to bigger jobs that require a certain level of skill and knowledge, you should leave them to the experts. Even though hiring a builder or a plumber to take care of work will add to the overall costs, it will be a lot cheaper than you having a go and getting something seriously wrong! In that case, you would end up hiring someone to repair your mistakes anyway, which could be very expensive.

Do Go For Trendy Finishes
Things move fast in the interior design world, and bathroom styles can go out of fashion in as little as five years. So, it’s important to pick some very current finishes to make sure they are in style for as long as possible. If you get some that are going out of fashion already, and they will quickly look very dated.

Enjoy your renovation project!

Members Meet and Greet in Singrapore

OMG! This business is super amazing. It is standing tall among all Revenue sharing Programs online. There were so many but did not last. I am fortunate to be part of this amazing program. "You put money to make money" is the game! That's how you play in this type of business.

Some members from some countries are gonna meet up early next month in Singapore for the "Meet and Greet" event. It is too late for me to attend since I am coming from the US and I worked full time. I have to plan my time paid off vacation ahead of time.

Therefore, I am looking for next year and for sure, it is going to be in different country. Exploring the different sides of the world. ;) It is fun to meet the members.

These Are The Outfits Every Child Needs In Their Closet!

Shopping for kids clothes is something that just about every parent loves doing. It’s easy to grab things off the shelves because they look cute, but what exactly does your child need in their wardrobe? Here are a few different types of outfits it’s worth stocking up on to make sure they always have the right clothes on hand.

School Uniform
Most schools these days require kids to wear uniform. Your best bet is to buy more of this stuff than you think you will need. Tights and trousers can get ripped due to falls in the playground, shirts and blouses can go gray after constant washing. You will of course want your child to look smart in school so having plenty of items on hand is worthwhile.

Smart Clothes
These are the sort of clothes you would put them in when you’re going out on the weekends. Maybe it’s a cinema trip, visits to relatives, a restaurant or day out. It’s worth spending a little more here as the quality will be better. Items will wash nicely and last longer without fading, stretching or going bobbly. You can buy things like kids Stone Island clothes as well as other designers which cost a little more, but the price is reflected in the quality. Keep these kinds of outfits for when you’re doing activities that don’t involve getting messy. That way you avoid them becoming ruined, and they can be worn many times.

Special Occasion Clothes
It’s no secret that kids have active social lives- in fact, I’d hazard a guess that it’s far better than most of their parents! When you have to take them to birthday parties and other special events every other week, they need to have the right clothes to wear. Plus when you have special events like weddings, christenings and other formal occasions crop up, they will need suitable outfits to wear too. Things that are a little more formal but still allow them to move around and have fun are the best way to go. A couple of different skirts for girls can be worn with different tops, tights, and accessories to look different each time. The same is true with trousers for boys. If you have a few staple pieces on hand, you’ll always have something for them to wear when a special occasion crops up- but without it feeling like they’re constantly wearing the same things.

Play Clothes

These are the kinds of clothes you can put them in and not worry about them getting ruined. If they want to play outside, be boisterous and mess around you’re not panicking that they’re going to fall over and rip them or get them dirty. A couple of basic t-shirts, leggings or tracksuit bottoms will do the trick. Easy, comfy clothes they can put on after school if you’re not doing much. Or at the weekend if they want to ride their bikes, play on roller skates or go hiking in fields or woods.

Adopting Kids Abroad

To have kids of your own is such a blessing from heaven above! Not all couples are granted to have kids. But on the other hand, there are sources or places to check out to for help such as adoption agencies.

International adoption is very expensive and very time consuming.. I knew someone who preferred to adopt a kid from due to the highest possibilities of making their dream come true. They had tried to adopt a child locally but there was no luck!

But to adopt kids from abroad needs a thorough investigation to make it sure that the agency is legit...

I just watched a movie about a couple adopting a girl from abroad. Everything seems legit but ended as a scammed. It was hard when you invested all your money, time and effort and end up empty. Therefore, any research is highly recommended and investigation before getting into something.


Freshening Up Your Garden On The Cheap

The garden is a special part of your home, adding a whole new dimension to the property by allowing outdoors fun. However, given that it is continually subjected to the elements, it will need a little TLC from time to time.

Injecting new life into your backyard doesn’t require swimming pools and other expensive additions. The simple joys often bring the greatest impact. Here are some equally simple jobs to bring yours back from the dead.

What are you waiting for? Let’s get to work.

Restoring The Shed
The shed is often criminally overlooked by homeowners. But it’s a space that can work wonders for the organization, which can maximize the possibilities in other areas too. Your first job should be to clear the space of any unnecessary items. Whether you sell them or bin them doesn’t matter. Simply creating that extra space will have a telling impact.

Shed doors are perhaps the most likely to suffer creaking and similar issues. Fixing those issues, along with any leaks in the roof, won’t take much time or effort. In turn, you’ll be left with a shed that feels brand new.

As long as you continue to treat it with care from this moment on, those qualities should last for years.

Adding Beauty
Nature is a truly beautiful thing, and the garden is your place to embrace it. However, maintaining those elements can be difficult. A few cheap and simple cheats will work wonders.

Installing an artificial lawn will require a little investment. However, you’ll be saving time and money in the long run. Moreover, ridding yourself of the lawn mower forever is a bonus that every homeowner will cherish.

Meanwhile, hanging flower baskets can brighten up the space without the need for intense maintenance. They’re inexpensive in cost, but their impact on the garden is priceless.

Repairing The Deck
A great decking area gives the whole garden a new sense of purpose. However, the wood can become a little jaded and grotty over time. Ultimately, that can make the garden feel far less inviting.

You don’t need to replace the wooden slats completely. Wood bleach can restore the flooring and banisters to their best. Click here for more info on how this simple trick can get your deck bursting with life once more. Those solutions can often be used to give fences new life also.

As for the furniture, why not just buy some new cushions? It’s a far cheaper and easier option than replacing the seating completely. Let’s face it; the impacts can be just as huge.

Let There Be Light
The garden is undeniably a great venue for chilled entertainment. This could mean reading a book alone or entertaining friends with a party. Either way, extending your enjoyment by adding the option of evening fun can only bring positive influences.

LED garden lamps aren’t only a great way to achieve this goal, but they will add a new charm to the space too. Given that they are sufficient energy sources that can aid garden surveillance too, adding them makes a lot of sense.

It’s good for the garden, your finances, and your enjoyment. What more could you ever ask for?
