Try picturing the worst bathroom you have ever seen. Now what comes to mind? Is it the lack of clean surfaces or the fact that it is so dark you worry about tripping and injuring yourself?
There are plenty of things that can cause a should be beautiful bathroom to turn into a nightmare. However, it isn’t as hard to fix and spruce the place up as many of you might think.
Here are the top reasons for the most unpopular bathroom:
The last thing that someone wants to see when they walk into the bathroom is dirt caked on surfaces. Piles of dirt in corners and unclean toilets and showers are some of the quickest ways to make guests turn and run for the hills. I don’t know about you but I would think twice about entering a bathroom in which the owner doesn’t have time to clean the most used room in the home.
It is an easy fix though. If time is not of the essence the quickest way to clean this room is by buying a Swiffer mop and some toilet and shower spray. The Swiffer allows for a seamless switch between sweeping and mopping. For the sprays all you have to do is spray and walk away for awhile then simply wipe them down.
Not sure if you have caught the show Bath Crashers on the DIY network but it is a decent show. I like the host so that makes the show watchable. Here is a link to some of their bathroom remodeling photos. The first one I do not get. I think the Dyson hand driers are cool in public bathrooms but the last place I want one is in my master bath. All I need is my spouse drying her hands using the Dyson at 2am Bath Crashers Photos
This week I think my focus is going to be on helping you find pictures and ideas to inspire you bathroom. HGTV has a huge designer photo section where you can get lost in all the pictures. The nice thing about this sources is it gives you links to the actual designer websites. Designer Portfolios
If you are looking to re-model your shower or bathroom area here are some photos I found inspiring. These may help you come up with some ideas for you house. I particularity like when people mix stone with glass, mixing textures and styles gives you a classy modern feel. See pictures
I’m currently babysitting a friend’s pug, which goes by the name of “Boris.” He snorts, he wheezes, he runs around in the most confused manner possible, and is generally a bit of a nuisance, but he’s adorable and loving, so who can hold that against him?
Boris, the adorable Pug
Well, as anyone who’s ever had inside pets can tell you, eventually your furniture gets peed on. And, as luck would have it, Boris peed on my wood bathroom vanity. This is ‘lucky’ only in the sense that I now have something new to talk about on my vanity blog, and, I suppose, also in the sense that I learned something new.
Wow! It’s been a while since we’ve posted anything, I know, and to those who await my every blog post with bated breath – I apologize for the delay!
But we’re back after a busy month, and we are ready to blog!
One of our local friends who has started experimenting with editing software came by and snapped some photos, and then compiled them into a sort of “commercial” for us. So, check it out! I think it sums us up pretty nicely, don’t you?
These are all pictures from our actual showroom in San Diego, featuring some of the best vanities in the business! Not only do we have a great selection, but we even carry several totally unique models that you won’t find anywhere else – and that’s a guarantee! So please stop in and check out our showroom today.
First, an announcement. I realize now how silly it is to title my “Vanity of the Week” posts with the name of the vanity embedded in them. It totally ruins the suspense, and frankly it’s not fun at all, is it? So, from now on, I will title my VOW posts with the date so we can keep these things nice and orderly. Right? Right!
Good, so, onward and upward. I am pleased to present our newest Vanity of the Week!
The first word that comes to mind when I look at this particular floor-standing bathroom vanity is “edgy.” And not “edgy” in the way that Natalie Portman’s role in the recent Arronofsky flick “Black Swan” was edgy (that movie was seriously, seriously edgy by the way). I mean it’s “edgy” in the sense that it prominently features highly dramatic and yet strikingly minimalist angles, or “edges.” Yes, I’m not exactly digging into the creativity box today.
Wow, I can’t believe it’s been a month since I last posted something. I wish I could say it’s because I’ve been occupied vacationing in the Bahamas or perhaps catching up on tons of much-needed sleep. But the truth is, we’ve been incredibly busy here! New products, new manufacturers, overhauls of our site and store design – it’s all been such a blur that the month just zoomed by!
