How Builders Repair Bathroom Problems

Category : Blog

Bathroom Problems create hassle for any homeowner. The best way to solve these issues is to call for riverviewcustomhomes.ca/ builders in Calgary. However, if you suffer from bathroom problems at a time when a builder isn’t available or at a time when you are on a budget, there are things you can do yourself to address the concerns.

Here are some of the problem areas you might be experiencing in your bathrooms and how you can fix them:

  1. Storage Space

Bathrooms have a very limited space. This is why storage spaces in the room are limited, too. If you can’t yet afford to pay Calgary builders for the construction of storage spaces, the best way for you to add some storage to your bathroom is to buy some fixtures. Instead of buying wide storage fittings, opt for vertical ones. Narrow but tall storage fixtures can save space but at the same time hold more bath items. You can use wall fittings to store your bathroom needs.

  1. Lighting

The right lighting can make a small bathroom look more spacious. If you want uniform lighting in your lavatory, add a sconce near vanities. If there’s a mirror in the bathroom, strategically place the lighting fixture on top or on the sides to avoid shadows. If you want a brighter light in the shower, you can place some fittings there as well. In this case, you must employ the help of an electrician to correctly place the wires.

  1. Towels

Calgary can be very cold. Warm towels could be a delight during the winter. You need to have a towel rack that warms it while hanging. Towel warmers and cabinets costs less than $200. You need an electrician to have these fixtures installed, however. Never try to DIY electrical wires or you might end up having rebuilt the entire home instead of just redecorating your bathroom.

  1. Regulated Floor Temperature

The city experiences very cold winter. Sometimes, stepping on a frozen floor can be very daunting. Therefore, if you want to have a regulated floor temperature, have a radiant floor heating system. This demands rebuilding so builders are necessary to be hired. If you don’t have the budget for this for now, go the cheaper route by buying fluffy rugs for winter so you don’t have to deal with cold floors. Just make sure to regularly change them as wet rugs could be breeding ground for bacteria.

  1. Dirty Clothes

Is the rest of your family throwing used clothes on the bathroom floor? Have a laundry cabinet in the room. You can easily buy this at stores.

  1. Bathroom seats

Sometimes you might need a seat when shaving. The seat can be helpful too if a family member is recuperating from an injury. You can buy a foldable stool if you don’t want to hire builders to install the bathroom fixture. Foldable seats are space savers. You can unfold them if need be and stack them away under the bathroom sink if not used.

These bathroom issues can easily be solved. On the other hand, if you really want a better-looking bathroom with all the amenities you need, you can always look for builders in Calgary to do the job for you.

Decorating Your New Hamilton Apartment

Category : Blog

After you’ve leased one of the many great apartments for rent Hamilton and moved in, you’ll probably look around and wonder how to make the space feel more like home. It’s a common issue renters run into, and figuring out how to jazz up your apartment and add character while still ensuring that you get your deposit back can be tricky. Here are some things to consider while decorating your apartment.

  1. Comb through your lease before you do anything. Many renters are surprised to find that their lease allows for hanging items or even painting. However, there will always be stipulations attached, such as needing to remove any nails or screws before moving out and being required to paint the walls back to their original color once your lease is up.
  2. Don’t automatically think you can’t paint. Painting a rental is an excellent way to add style and personality to it, even if you only paint an accent wall or a small portion of the apartment. If your lease says nothing about whether painting is okay, ask your landlord. Offering to paint the walls back to their previous color could make your landlord more apt to agree, as can promising to use a professional painter so the job looks great.
  3. Adhesive wall hooks are perfect for decorating in a rental. These days, you can find a wide variety of decorative adhesive hooks that can be removed without a trace once your lease it up. Use these to store your keys, bags, and provide a space for guests to hang their coats without a coat rack taking up valuable floor space. Adhesive hooks can also be used to hang up wreaths, banners, and other decorative items without using nails and screws.
  4. Get creative with your wall hangings. Framed pictures aren’t the only thing you can use to make your walls look less bare. Consider putting up panels of fabric in a print that you like, clipboards that hold your favorite graphic art, wreaths, and other items.
  5. Add color with throws and pillows. If you can’t paint your walls and are forbidden from using nails or screws to hang decor, your next best bet is to pick out or make throw pillows that will add color to your apartment and help personalize it. Throw blankets and pillows can be used to make bedrooms, living rooms, and even dining areas look better.
