Removing asbestos during a remodel

We bought our house knowing it needed a fair bit of work, but we could never have guessed how complicated the job would get in the end. It turns out not only do we have asbestos in the walls, but also, at some point, the previous owners had some asbestos insulation put in the roof. There are a lot more precautions that we need to make as result but, I'll feel a lot better knowing we aren't cooking and eating our meals near asbestos. Our remodeling contractor has been great and has stepped us through the whole process. Join us on our remodeling journey!

Must Have Accessories to Enhance Your Bathroom's Attractiveness

by Joanne Sullivan

The main purpose of the bathroom is to be highly functional. Nevertheless, this does not mean that it has to be plain and unattractive. Some homeowners may assume that the only way they can boost the appeal of their bathroom is by embarking on extensive remodelling, but the truth of the matter is extreme measures are not necessary if your bathroom is in good condition. Instead, the addition of a few key accessories can quickly transform the appearance of your bathroom while also enhancing its overall practicality. So what are some of the must-have accessories that would enhance your bathroom's attractiveness?

An electronics organiser

There is a vast array of electronic items that people make use of in the bathroom. These electronics range from shavers, blow dryers, flat irons and so on. In this technological age, you may even find you have new digital devices that you use in your bathroom such as Bluetooth speakers or a tablet, which would need to be charged on occasion. Instead of having these electrical appliances strewn all over your bathroom vanity and having to contend with stray cables, you should invest in an electronics organiser.

These organisers come in an assortment of materials ranging from wicker to waterproof PVC. They are specially designed to provide you with a safe place to store all the electronic gadgets you may need in your bathroom, while still having them within reach whenever you need them. Moreover, they prevent the accumulation of clutter in your bathroom, hence making the space appear more attractive.

A towel-ladder

Homeowners will typically have a linen closet where they will store their bath towels. However, everyone can attest to the having forgotten to grab a bathroom towel at least once, forcing you to make a mad dash to your bedroom wet and shivering. To prevent this, you may want to start considering storing a few towels in the bathroom. A common way of doing this is by having a hook to hang your towel, but this can make your bathroom seem messy. Instead, you should consider investing in a towel-ladder.

This structure comes in an assortment of styles, shapes and colours so you can be assured of finding one to suit your bathroom décor. Towel-ladders also come with several levels, giving you sufficient space to store bath and hand towels alike. As such, not only would you always have a towel at hand, but you also get the chance to display your decorative towels without them taking up too much space in your bathroom.

If you're interested in other bathroom products or add-ons, consider talking with a contractor about how they could be incorporated.
