Designing a Vintage Bathroom

Posted on July 29th, 2013 by

Recently Vintage bathrooms have become more common, and they always have a classic appeal to homeowners. There are various ways to create a vintage look to your home design by adding a few details from the sink to the tub.

Add a console sink that exposes the piping and has chrome legs. The deck of the sink has defined and wide edges. You can add a chandelier for a touch of elegance. A pedestal sink is another vintage type of sink with a small squared base, but its plumbing is covered.

Cararra marble is a stone that works best for a vintage vanity top and floors in the bathroom. Ceramic cross and lever handles with a white ceramic trim combined with the marble is a classic look. Tubs are freestanding with either claw feet or supported at the base. You can use a shower curtain that encloses the oval shaped tub suspended from the ceiling.

Key Elements of a Home Gym

Posted on July 22nd, 2013 by

Here are the elements that must be considered in setting up an home gym:

  • First, the fitness equipment in the home gym must be tailored to the tastes of the homeowners and their families. For example, there is no point to purchasing an exercise bike if no one is going to use it. Making sure that potential users are encouraged to exercise is essential to building a successful home gym.
  • Make sure to have something to keep users entertained during exercise. Popular examples range from having a TV in the room to music and audiobooks. Similarly, make sure that the home gym has conveniences such as towels and bottled water to make the experience as comfortable as possible.
  • Do not forget to install safety features in the home gym and its fitness equipment.
