Know The Secret To The Perfect Bathroom Sink

While choosing a bathroom sink, two major factors have to be put into consideration when it comes to the material that you decide to go for.

Your bathroom may be out of other people’s sight but that doesn’t mean you get can get away with carelessly buying just any sanitary wares and fittings. It also needs creative input and thorough attention as you would give your bedroom or living room. This is because aesthetics is not the only goal here but to also build a comfortable and functional bathroom. Here are some tips that will help your choose the best basin for your bathroom that suits your needs.

Work With What You Have
Sure you can completely redo your entire sink area if you want to if you’re set on a specific kind of sink. But reconstructing the whole space for that would be impractical. So it would be better to evaluate your space and work within the limitations that you have.

The Available Space
When choosing sanitary wares and fittings for your bathroom, you also have to consider the available space. A sink can either take all the space or fit just right depending on the type of sink you decide to choose. If you have limited space, wall mount, freestanding or console sink would be best. All of them keeps the room from looking cramped because it free up a lot of floor space although you’ll have to deal with limited storage underneath them. But if you have abundant space to work with then counter mount sink and vanity top sink or even a double vanity won’t be a problem.

Know Your Style
Are you trying to go for a specific theme for your bathroom? If that’s the case, you have to figure out the style that you like best so that you can choose a sink that goes well with that. Be it rustic or classic theme, Fullsun’s TOTO products have several series that you can choose from. You can rest assured that all the products are not only high quality but also stylish.

Sink Holes
Sinks need faucets, and faucets come in different hole numbers: one hole, two holes or three holes. If you already have a certain faucet in mind, you can pick a sink to match it. If you don’t, choosing a sink with three holes is your safest bet — as it works with the greatest number of faucet options.

Know Your Options
Knowing what options you have will make it easier for you to decide because you can compare them with each other and learn which among them fits your requirements. Do not limit yourself with what the famous brands or the cheapest possible bathroom sink. There are wall mounted sinks, counter mounted sinks, floor mount or freestanding sink, console sink, and vanity top sinks. Know what kind fits well for your bathroom.

 

Shop Around
Even if you already have decided on the style and material that you like for your bathroom sink, it’s still best to see them in person. Sometimes, what we have in mind is not exactly how it is in reality. You may even realize that you don’t actually like what you’ve originally picked when you were just looking through sinks online once you’ve seen and touched them.

Consider Universal Design
Last but not least, think about universal design when you’re shopping sinks. While you may not need a handicap-accessible bathroom day to day, will anyone in your family? Would making your bathroom more accessible be an asset when it comes time to sell? One small step you can easily take is to install the sink as close to the front of your countertop or vanity as possible.

Bathroom Trends You Don’t Wanna Dip Into

Trends are fun but when it comes to something permanent in your life and house, like your bathroom, you may wanna be careful in trying them out.

You don’t have to renovate every time a new bathroom trend or design comes out. But if your bathroom no longer look cohesive to the rest of your house or some of your sanitary wares have become way too old looking to look presentable then it’s probably time to upgrade. But if you’re planning on updating the look of your bathroom with a trend in mind, it doesn’t hurt to reconsider and research more.

Trends are fun but when it comes to something permanent in your life and house, like your bathroom, you may wanna be careful in trying them out. This is especially important if you don’t want to renovate often and plan on selling your house in the future.

Over sized Tubs
Over sized tubs looks and feels luxurious. But they’re also impractical in a lot of ways like the space they take up and amount of water it needs to be able to be filled. So, if you don’t really have a particular reason for wanting an over sized tub aside from following the trend, better stick with the standard-sized ones.

Even better if you go for a shower area instead, especially if you want to conserve water in the long run. Fullsun’s TOTO Technology offers two shower heads which are the Aerial Shower and Aerial Pulse that promotes comfortable and enjoyable experience while reducing water consumption. Aside from that, they also have faucets equipped with self-power feature and EcoCap that allows you to enjoy satisfying water stream while washing your hands while reducing water consumption.

White Everything
The all white look is definitely popular, especially for those who are trying to go for the minimalist look. But if you don’t have the time to clean regularly to keep every space as white, you’ll have a hard time maintaining the pristine look it’s supposed to have. So if you’re adamant on white walls, then try a different neutral color for the floors, other surfaces.

Tacky Colors
While the all-white look can be boring and hard to maintain, bold ones can be an eyesore after a while too! If you’re going for colors, at least don’t go for those that looks dated quickly like shades of mustard, salmon and avocado.

Copper Materials
Rose and copper finishes have been the thing for the past couple of years but that’s starting to decline lately. If you’re planning on remodeling around the end of the year, either look up the latest material trend or stick with those that stand the test of time.

Tops Tips And Tricks To Get Rid Of Foul Smell Around The House

Tops Tips And Tricks To Get Rid Of Foul Smell Around The House

Cigarette smoke, pet odor, lingering smell of food you cooked, bathroom stink, and mildew are just some of the most typical smells that can be challenging to get rid around the house. Sure you can clean and scrub surfaces but some foul scents often linger even after thorough cleaning. In cases like this, people often grab a can of air freshener in attempt to not just eliminate the smell but to also make the house smell good. However, frequent use and exposure to this could actually be harmful to your health.

Using air fresheners doesn’t eliminate the foul odor, what it does is overpower that smell. So the bad smell is still there but it’s simply being masked by the air freshener. The problem is that the scent that air freshener produces, though pleasant, can be dangerous to your health because they’re made up of chemical compounds. Most air freshener contain Volatile Organic Compound (VOC), benzene, formaldehyde, aerosol propellants, and allergens which can not only cause headaches and nausea but is also bad for those suffering from asthma. Moreover, another hazardous chemical that’s been found in most air freshener is phthalates which is not good for pregnant women or those trying to conceive because this chemical have been linked to birth defects, hormonal changes, and even poor semen quality.

So are we just gonna live with unpleasant smell because air fresheners are bad? Of course not! We’ve found other ways to deal with that without compromising your health! Dig in and learn other ways to tackle household odors!

Place Used Fabric Softener Sheets In Storage Areas
Cabinets, cupboards, linen closet and even car interiors often have that ‘stored’ smell that isn’t necessarily bad but not good either. If you’re one of the people who is bothered by that, you can put used fabric softener sheets in those places. This way you’d be welcomed by a scented aroma whenever you open the doors to these areas.

Baking Soda Or Coffee Beans For Pet Odors
On the other hand, if you’re not interested in air fresheners and you simply wanna get rid of the awful pet smell, you can use coffee beans or baking soda. They may not make the area smell flowery or fruity or those kind of smell that store bought air freshener produces, but they absorb bad scent. You just have to place coffee beans in a mesh covered jar or a can half filled with baking soda in pet areas and that will do the trick.

A Better Toilet Helps With The Lingering Smell When Someone Went Number 2
If there’s anything worse than pee smell, that’s poo smell. It stinks which is why it’s so important to flush really well to make sure everything’s been washed out. The thing is, sometimes regular toilets with flush don’t do that well. For that, it’s probably a good idea to consider opting for TOTO Tornado Flush toilet that allows you to flush both the rim and bowl in an innovative way where it project three powerful jets of water from inside the bowl so you won’t have to flush twice and clean manually. If you’re still worried about the smell especially when you have visitors coming over or you really just wanna be thorough, burning one or two match sticks eliminates the smell, trust me.

Vinegar And Baking Powder
These two ingredients are popular as all-purpose household cleaning agent. Not only because they’re combination can be tough on stains and grime, but also because they help deodorize the area that you clean using them. Just mix 1/3 cup of baking soda with 1/3 cup of vinegar. You’ll see that it will fizz as soon as you mix them together, so pour the mixture down the sink or any other area that needs some deep cleaning to not lose the fizzing action. This is because the fizzing is the one that breaks down the build up dirt and gunk. Leave that for an hour or overnight if you have time and flush with hot water.

Charcoal Air Purifier
There’s a reason why people put charcoal in their refrigerators or anywhere in the house that smells bad. Because charcoal absorbs odor! So instead of risking your health using typical air freshener, why not opt for charcoal air purifier? This works well because, this purifying bag contains activated charcoal that absorbs excess moisture to avoid the mold and bacteria which creates that mildew smell that we all hate.

New Tiles
Did you know that there are certain tiles that help maintain cleanliness, sanitation and even eliminate smell in the bathroom? Fullsun’s Hydrotect Tiles are self-cleaning because hydrotect is hydrophilic which means it forms a film of water on the tiles itself that helps easily remove dirt and grime once the water from the shower hits the tiles. Aside from that it also has anti-bacterial feature that kills bacteria when they come in contact with the tiles. But more importantly, Hydrotect Tiles helps you get rid of foul smell because when exposed to sunlight, the material reacts in a way that activated oxygen forms on the surface. As a result, pollutant that comes in contact with the active oxygen formed on the surface of the tiles turns into harmless materials which purifies the air. So, after using the bathroom, you may want to open the windows to let sunlight in.
