    Organizing your Bathroom Accessories

    Is your bathroom unorganized and cluttered. Let’s see what we can do to change your problem. Stand back and look for wasted space corners along with the cupboards. There are ways to rearrange things and organize them to give you more room and space as well.

    What do you have under that sink?
    Do you have a lot of empty space down there? Lets try adding a shelf to fill it up and not have to stack everything on top of each other. Take some measurements and decide just how high you need the space to be on the bottom for cleaning supplies or maybe that package of toilet paper you bought that was on sale. Mark a spot with a marker on all four corners where you want to put a top shelf. Places like Lowes and Marnards even Home Depot has different size shelving and colors too. Take your measurements with you and some places will even cut it for you so all you have to do is mount it when returning home. Tell the salesperson what your trying to do and they can recommend the mount supplies you’ll need. Know how to us a drill, oh that’s ok if you don’t a screw driver will work just as good only it is harder to do. Take a small nail and make a hole where you want to mount the shelving units. Using the drill or screwdriver install, the mounting brackets and lay down your new shelf on top of it. Now that wasted space has a shelf in it and you can put the small items on it towards the top.

    Take a look at your nearest hardware or department store usually Rubbermaid has a lot of ideas to fill in the area under your sink. Get some small drawers and stack them in there on one side; you can put your soaps and small items in them even your extra wash cloths and hand towels will fit in these drawers. Rubbermaid also makes shelves that stack on top of each other that you can put in this space. You can make space to store nice towels and other bathroom accessories. Rubbermaid is easy to clean just fill up the tub or take outside and use the garden hose on them. Warm soapy water and a hose to rinse will do a great job and the mess is all outside.

    How about the counter space around your sink it can be organized to by just placing a basket in one corner and laying that lose hair brush with the comb in it. You can place your room deodorizer and liquid hand soap in it too. Everything is all in one corner now and all you have to do is reach for it without going through everything to find them.

    Organizing your tub and shower area is a breeze as well. Rubbermaid also makes many different things you can put in them to hold that bar of soap and hair shampoo and conditioner. Hang a shower caddy over you showerhead and put you razor along with the shaving cream, shampoo and conditioner, shower gel maybe can be put there too. This keeps them in a handy to reach area and off the shower floor of off the ledge of your tub. Your bar soap can dry easier with the holes letting air to it so the bar isn’t lying in water and wasting it.

    You can also get corner shelves that have suction cups to stick on the wall in the corners. These are nice and more places to put things. Hang a shower mirror in the shower to make it easy for that man of yours to shave and shower all the same time.

    Your sink is all organized with more space and you can find everything under there now. You can take a shower or bath without having to worry of slipping on the soap when you get in or out. Enjoy your new space and have fun with your new project.

    Organizers and Bathroom Accessories

    How about using one of your cute baskets for all your foot care that you have to dig out of the two or three spaces. The cute basket will store all your foot care in one place, which makes it much easier for you when it comes time to soak those tired feet after a long day at work. If you have items stored in your basket, why not add a few more baskets and make up a floral garden.

    How to arrange flowers for your baskets:
    How about making and artificial arrangement of flowers to fill one of your baskets, just take those fancy washcloths you have in the closet that you don’t want anyone to use. Roll them up like you would napkins for the dining room table and line the basket with the clothes. Now arrange those silk flowers in the center. This will make a nice flower in that dark room and they’re easy to take care of too.

    Your wall is finished and you’ve used those old shelves and baskets that were taking up space in the garage. You now have all you nail and foot care organized with a flower in the center. Baskets are handy, since you can fill them up with your favorite items. Of course, you can store the baskets filled with items in the back of your cabinets, especially items you no longer use, yet want to keep. Keep in mind however when searching for the baskets it can become stressful, since as you add other items it pushes the basket back further.

    Baskets make great organizers. In addition, you can create nice shelves to organize your bathroom items as well.

    How to make shelves:
    Take some plywood, cut it to fit, and acquire a few nails, a hammer, drill, bits, etc, and you are on your way to creating a nice shelf. You can run the shelves in a row also, which means you can use several pieces of plywood to make your shelves. The shelves make nice organizers, since you can store towels, cleaning supplies, bathroom items, and more.

    Before you cut the plywood, you will need to measure the wood, starting at the corners of your wall and up to the taps. You want to keep the holes for your nails apart around 16-inches, depending on the size. You want to select a wall area where the studs are sturdy and can hold the weight. You can tap on the wall to find studs, otherwise you can purchase stud sensors at your local hardware.

    How do I mount the shelves?
    You will need anchors made of plastic materials. The anchors you will push into the holes that you have drilled into the wall. Once you tighten the screws, it will lock your anchor in place. If you choose to use other types of anchors, such as the metal stars, the anchors will buckle its finger, folding back and clamping it to secure.

    Mounting shelves is easy. You use common sense and the right materials and you shouldn’t have a problem. If you want to securely mount your shelves, consider the steel cleat anchors. You can also place a strip of wood beneath the shelves to mount. Screw the wood in place. If the shelves do not have wooden strips, then you can choose slots, such as the keyholes. You will need a router and unique jig to fit. In short, you have a wide array of tools to mount and fasten your shelves in place. It is your choice. If you are not familiar with mounting materials, go online and research the products before starting your project.

    Mixing Bathroom Accessories

    How to choose knobs and hooks

    Choosing bathroom accessories such as knobs and robe hooks is not easy. You have a selection from Dove, Musa, Antique, Aranjeuz, Austin, Barcelona, Cabin, Belvedere, Cameo, Channel, Cannes, Catalina, Chenille and more to select. City Temple, Contessa, Cosmopolitan, Dominic, Designer, Drop and Elizabeth created a nice line of knobs and robe hooks as well.

    When choosing knobs and hooks your best bet is to reduce your options. For instance, do you like gold? Do you like gold combined with chrome? Would your prefer decorative styles? Do like the mirror look? Considering your taste, style etc can help you narrow down your choice.

    In addition, you want to consider your bathroom. Do you have a country setting? Do you have a regal bath? Is your bath Victorian Style? Are you purchasing knobs and hooks for a kid bathroom? What colors and patterns are in your bathroom?

    If you have regal or master bathroom you may like the gold knobs and hooks. Jas has a nice line of knobs and hooks. Jas made the creative gold robe hooks, which go well with a variety of colors. You might have a wall mirror, glass cub, hooks, shelves, and racks in the background of your bath area. In this instance, I would reconsider the gold, unless you have gold trimmings around your bathroom accessories.

    If you have gold trimmings, the gold will look great. If you do not have gold trimmings, you may want to add a few other bathroom items. For instance, you can purchase gold bath bars, gold-trimmed holders made of glass, gold and glass soap dish, bath tissue holders, vanity glass shelves trimmed in gold and so on. Toss in a gold towel ring and you are off to a good start.

    How do I choose knobs and hooks for antique bathrooms?
    If you have an antique environment, you may like Pacific’s line of bathroom accessories. Antique shades, tones, etc could benefit from the oil rub bronze hooks. Satin nickel will also go well in antique bathrooms. Toss in a Bronze Oil Rub ring, antique white soap dish and toothbrush holder, and perhaps a vanity glass mirror and there you have it.

    The rustic gold are nice items that go well in antique environments. The Antique Bronze Burn shades are nice as well. Toss in a rustic, bronze, or antique vanity glass shelf and your patterns will blend well. In addition, you can add a bath tissue holder; towel ring/bar and you are off to enhance your antique bathroom.

    Aranjeuz makes a nice line of products, which you could blend in antique regions. It depends on your style, yet you could blend the gold trim with chrome polish hooks to set off an antique atmosphere. The brush nickel mixed with gold is nice as well.

    How do I choose modern patterns and colors?
    Dominic collections have a nice selection of hooks. You may like the chrome polished items designed by German crafters. Wind has a nice selection of modern designs as well.

    How do I choose bathroom accessories for Victorian baths?
    Victorian style baths often benefit from Satin Nickel shades, brass and chrome polish, and so on. Victorian style is designed to bring home legends of the past. Victorian also honors the traditional patterns. Most Victorian bathrooms can benefit from the shades listed, as well as other items that offset porcelain. If you have Victorian bath, likely you have porcelain tubs and sinks, which you want to match the colors when searching for bathroom accessories. Presently, Victorian collections have a sale, offering you up to 27% discount.

    Installing New Bathroom Faucets

    Would you like to save money, make your bathroom look better, and be able to take pride in the fact that you did it yourself? Decided to start a home improvement project can be a little freighting but with the right tools and information, you will soon be on your way. You will have the confidence to do it yourself and know that you have done a good job.

    The first step to getting started with your new faucet project is getting the information to do the job. You need to consult the web and/or educational books to make sure that you have all that you need to make this process happen.

    Once you have all your information compiled and feel ready to undertake your home improvement project, you need to look at all the different faucet manufacturers for the best quality for the money you are willing to spend. You will want to purchase a faucet that is durable, as well as, blending well with your existing bathroom accessories.

    You now have the perfect faucet purchased. It is sitting in its box awaiting its new home on your bathroom vanity. You need to make sure that you have the correct tools available. This would include:

    A basin cock wrench or pipe wrench
    Philips-head screwdriver
    Flat-head screwdriver
    Slip-joint and adjustable pliers
    Adjustable wrench
    Bathroom caulk and caulk gun (plumber’s putty will also work)
    New flexible faucet supply tubes
    Thread sealer

    Your next step in this process would be to remove the old faucet. To do this, you will need to shut off your water supply either under the sink or at the main water-supply valve. The hot and cold water supply tubes will need to be loosened. At the faucet stem, loosen and remove the compression nut with a basin cock wrench or pipe wrench. To remove the faucet now, all that you need to do is remove the nut holding the faucet to the sink. The faucet should lift off.

    Chrome-plated brass hardware may start to decay after time so you may wish to change that as well. A bucket should be placed under the drain to contain excess water still in the drain. A new stopper may come with your new faucet. If this is the case, you might like to change that also. This will give you a consistent look on your new design.

    You will need to wrap your faucet stems with a thread sealer. Before inserting the faucet stems into the correct holes install the rubber gasket to the base of the faucet. Don’t worry if your faucet did not come with a rubber gasket. A bead of caulk will do the trick. When you have the faucet in position, you can thread the washer, nut, and mounting nut on to the faucet tailpiece. Tighten these nuts by hand.

    You may now attach your supply tubes to the faucet stems. Make sure that you apply thread sealer to the shut off valve threads. Tighten the coupling nuts to the supply stems. Be careful not to over-tighten the nuts. Reconnect the hot and cold water supply stems.

    You are now ready to clean the supply tubes to your new faucet. To do this you need to remove the aerator from the faucet. Now turn on the water. You will need to check for leaks while the water is running. If there are none, shut off the water and replace the aerator.

    Now sit back and enjoy your new bathroom faucet. You can take pride in the fact that you just installed it yourself.

    How to Use Bathroom Accessories to Design an Aquarium Bath

    Designing aquariums baths only takes a few bath accessories and you are on your way to creating a fabulous environment. Let’s face it, there is nothing like nature and if you can create a natural-based atmosphere, why not go for it, especially if you do not have to spend a fortune on the products. To get started consider the details below:

    How to create an aquarium bath:
    Creating an aquarium bath requires that you purchase or even handcraft a few of your own patterns, colors, fabrics, etc. You can use paper, fabrics, such as towels, rugs, etc to create your own design. In addition, you can create aquarium baths by using toothbrush holders, toilet seats, soap dishes, etc, which you can pick up at any local dollar store. The items are affordable, and you will have the opportunity to create a stylish environment that the entire family will enjoy.

    How to choose bath accessories:
    When choosing bath accessories, first you want to consider style, atmosphere, patterns, colors, etc. If you want a full aquarium effect, you will need designs with aquarium fish, such as gold fish, shark fish, stingrays, octopus, squids, seahorses, sea turtles, sea snakes, and so on. You can add any fish species you choose. In addition, you may want to add a few saltwater or freshwater plants to offset the environment. You can choose live plants if you like, yet you want to choose home plants, rather than plants that go in a live aquarium. The plants should coordinate with your patterns, colors, designs, etc.

    How to choose throw rugs, wastepaper baskets, etc:
    When choosing your patterns and colors, make sure that the items coordinate with your fish patterns. You might enjoy greenish colors, yellow tones, aquarium blue, and so on. You can purchase throw rugs with fish patterns already designed in the fabrics, otherwise you can create your own. At local craft, stores you can find iron-on patterns, or you can crochet the patterns, or even hand sew if you like. You have many choices and selections of bathroom accessories to select from a list of products.

    How to choose toilet seats:
    Choose the toilet seats, such as the aquarium seats. The patterns are saturated with fish species of all groups.

    How to choose shower curtains:
    You can make your own shower curtain by hand sewing the fabric, or else you can purchase affordable shower curtains at local stores or online. You can also buy curtain rings that have a variety of fish patterns. The colorful patterns will offset the atmosphere.

    How to choose toothbrush holders, soap dishes, mirrors, etc:
    Again, you want to keep coordinated when choosing these items. You can take old items from your home and create your own patterns, or you can visit local dollar stores to purchase affordable items. If you do not find what you want, perhaps you can go online to find a wide array of products suitable for you. You have options, which include the aquarium products. Pick your choice.

    As for mirrors, try to choose aquarium colors, such as blue, wintry green, yellow tones, etc. Add a few stones in the pattern and you are on your way to a fish heaven aquarium. Add some ivy around the mirrors and you have a natural based atmosphere that will impress your guests.

    You can purchase borders to offset your bathroom accessories as well. Borders make nice items, which can bring out your patterns, style, and colors. Borders are easy to install, you merely use tape, water, towel, etc. You are finished with your bath aquarium.

    How to install a toilet in Bathroom Accessories

    When you want to install a toilet, it usually takes 10 minutes and a few minutes to mount the seat. To install a toilet seat, first you need to wax the bowl rings. This is important, since if you fail to do so, you are only expecting future problem. Do not wait for those problems, since you have options.

    You can apply to wax bowl rings to apply a skilled toilet bowl. You want to place it where you want it, and move it to the tank. The tank will lead you to the toilet bowl, and you can move to attach the item and then level it to your point of return.

    The starting point will take you to a new level, especially if you do not want to project a new flange. Flange is something you want to deal with, since it is the process of cleaning the toilet before you install the units. If you have previously clean the unit, why are you asking me why I need to ask you what is up.

    How to mount your toilet and seat:
    If you have a prior toilet seat used on the flange, you want to consider rings. You can tell if this was the case due to there being some remains of an old wax bowl ring. In incident, this being the case you should take something and scrape it off. Afterwards I would suggest taking the toilet seat parts out for inspection. There are certain parts that you should place on the toilet or the foam packaging so it does not get dirty. This also helps to prevent chipping of the enamel. Generally, toilets come in two boxes one box containing the tank for the toilet then the bowl in the other box. Next, I would take the parts that you have, put them together making sure that all of them fit as intended. If you were just to try to place, everything got so far then came to the realization. The wrong time would increase the work you would have to do installing this new toilet. The wax bowl ring is an old-fashioned item that is still used to this very day. Even though there are some minor improvements that make it better then the older models. If you want, less trouble in setting this toilet up you should use a plastic flange. Those kinds of wax bowl rings seem to have less trouble in the bathroom. The only thing that the wax bowl does is seal the porcelain toilet to the flange. But if the toilet ever moves the seal would becomes broken this could be trouble cause gases for the sewer or water can leak out. Take in that this water would not be clear enough to drink. (Can someone say tap water?) Sometimes the leak cannot be detected because of the water dripping down. This can caused rotted floor structure and damage to ceilings in room below.

    Toilets seats are easy to install. If you choose a quality toilet, it will augment your bathroom if you put on a toilet seat that attracts interest. Perhaps you like fish. If you like aquarium, you can purchase for around $7.99 a nice fish seat for your toilet. Go to Value City, or related stores to get the bargains.

    Once you add your toilet and seat, you might want to purchase a rug to match. Shower curtains, window curtains, and other bathroom accessories can offset your environment. You can purchase toothbrush holders, cup, and other items at local stores or online.

    How to Design Framed Mirrors in Bathroom Accessories

    Did you know that you could invent your own-framed mirrors? Instead of heading to the store and purchasing pricey mirrors, you can use material around your home, or purchase affordable products to design your own mirror. Need help:

    How to invent your own mirror:
    Designing your own mirrors is the start of creating a completely new bathroom. You can use material around the home, such as photo frames. Try to choose an embellishing prototype. The embellished frame will make a great wall mirror, otherwise you can design tabletop mirrors, using it as a vanity. Vanities make nice displays, especially when you surround it with your favorite items, including perfumes and so on.

    How do I choose textile?
    Again, you will need a picture frame. You want a frame to fit the mirror. It depends on the size you want to accomplish, otherwise try choosing mirror and frames at with the amount of cm you need, which is around one-eighth-inch to a quarter inches. You will need an additional three to six centimeters, which equals around the same measurements.

    How do I add a back?
    You can use hardboard to add your backing. When choosing the board however, make sure that you match the board to the weight of the mirror. Rather, make sure that the cardboard will hold up the frame and mirror weight. Mirrors typically weigh approximately seven hundred fifty-g depending on the dimension. In this instance, you are making the quarter frame, so you will need to consider point zero/thirty two squares per m. If your mirror weighs more than 3-pounds, you will need a board to hold 1.6-kg per square foot. The thickness of the board then should be around one eight-inches. The mirror will fit into your rabbet, which you can have the glass cut at any glass shop, or mirror shop that specializes in glass products. If you want to use fancy material, purchase hardboards of equal size.

    Once you have your materials together, you will need to fit the mirror onto the backing. The backing should slide into the groove cut, or wood joints. (Rabbet) Once you have inserted the parts, you will need to nail your brads mildly to avoid breaking your mirror, nailing it into the picture frame. If you intend to hang the mirror on your wall, you will need hangers, which you want to pivot.

    How to choose mounting materials:
    You will need your mirror, frame, short screws, corner brace, craft paper (Brown), dual-adhesive farmer tape, dust cover, hangers, a couple of mirror hangers, awl, jigsaw, knife, and additional screws to mount your frame.

    Now that you have a basic idea, you can start creating your mirror. In short, it takes ten steps completely to create your framed mirror. To finish your mirror we recommend that you visit your local library and check out books to direct you. Otherwise, I will briefly walk you through the ten steps.

    Your first step is to face your frame on the wrong side and secure your brace corners, fastening it transversely to connect with the milter corners. With your awl, create pilot holes in the back of your frame. Once you have created the holes, insert the screws. If you have purchased hardboard, or using cardboard cut the board so, that it matches the size or your mirror. Facedown, place the mirror inside your wood joints. Now you can place your hardboard/cardboard inside the wood joints and over your mirror. Brads should be inserted at this point, which should measure at two points five-cm at the intervals of your corners.

    Next, use your tape to adhesive the frame, layering the tape at the outer edges of your frame and around three-mm. Do away with the paper cover. Now you are off to a great start of completing your mirror. Use your brown construction paper and cut five-cm, creating a strip extending a considerable distance than your picture frame. Once you have your paper over the backboard, you want to secure it. Use your construction tape. The last steps is to trim, mark, and measure to add your hangers.

    How to Darn Lace for Bathroom Accessories

    Lace makes attractive material no matter where you add the designs. If you have already made decorative towels, you are ready to add your lace and serger edges. If you have not stitched your decorative towels, you will need to learn the steps to get started. Otherwise, you can add lace trimming and serger edges to finish towels you have purchased. Terry cloth towels look great when lace and serger finishes are attached. To get started, continue reading.

    How to get started with lace trimming:
    To get started you will need a plain or unadorned towel, and lace edges, as well as a galloon, i.e. the ornamental trimming lace. The narrow bands of embroidery should consist of lace, braids, or thread colors of gold and silver. Preferably, you want lace. Make sure that the material is machine washable. Purchase the medium-weight lace, such as the taffeta, satin, or polyester.

    How to create lace trimming for bathroom towels:
    Once you have your materials gathered: (1) use the decorative trimming and cut an inch of the lace, cutting until it extends considerably a distance of your towel width. About a half-inch, fold the fabric under, folding it at the ends. In the desired position, pin the lace to your towel. You want the pins over the lower borders or edges. (2) Along the ends you have folded, stitch. Stitch along the edges of your scallop sides, keeping your stitching in a straight line. (3) Use the edges of your lace and repeat step one. You want the lace this time to fasten to the lower borders. Along the end folds, stitch and continue to the upper borders. Keep in a straight line. You should be finished at this point, unless you need to finish the upper borders of your lace. In this instance, on the opposite side of the bias band, cover it. Now you are ready to create your over-lock finished edges.

    How to create serger, finished edges:
    You will need plain material and a special needle, such as the tapestry. In addition, you will need nylon, combined threads of wool, contrasting threads of normal value, etc to get started.

    How to stitch:
    (1) Your serger should be set at three-threads, to equalize your stitch, which creates the serger. Both of your loopers should be threaded as well. Use your nylon threads and common thread. Heave the thread through your needle and prepare your stitch so that it is set to desired widthwise position. The length should be set at least one (mm) (2) along the selvages, start stitching whilst holding in place the tail string tight. You want to avoid trimming the edge of your cloth. The tails should be left at the extremity of your cloth. (3) Now, you will need a stitching needle. Thread it. About one inch and begin weaving your tapestry needlework so that it falls beneath the stitches at your serger. The tail strings may have extra length, which you will need cutting tools designed for sewers to cut it off.
    (2) Once you finish your lace and serger, you may want to add a few other bathroom accessories to set off your patterns. Try considering creative towel hooks, rings, and bars.

    A variety of rings, hooks, and bars are available online, including the medallion designs, which comprise bold backs. The stylish designs will offset your new-laced towels. You can also find the iron bolder, which tie back. The items bring luxury to your bath. Décor wooden pole sets are available, as well as many other designs to bring out your new towels. Now that you have your rings, hooks, bars, and towels you might want to offset the room further by adding bordered mirrors.
