Dual Shower systems.

Dual Shower Is So Fantastic!

So far we have seen rain showerheads and the hand showers, designer Thomas Baker wants to give you the benefit of both for a wholesome shower experience. The idea is to have the overhead shower going while you detach the hand shower (encased in the overhead) and take the benefits of both the streams. This is the Unum Rain Shower and Hand Shower, simplified for you folks. I’d be first in line to experiment it and see if the rain-pressure and flow holds good while you use the hand one. No doubt there will be some difference in impact, but it will be worth the try.

Want a Bath, Spa, and Jacuzzi but Got No Space

 I’m not going to poo-poo my apartment because I actually have a nice bathroom but am no where near sporting a bath, spa, and jacuzzi all in one unit. Have you seen the size of those tubs? They’re HUGE. Designer Dominik Chojnacki must understand my pain because his SPAcer is a movable Spa bath that can fold up against the wall to save floor space. Nevermind that it looks like an Orca turned upside down, Dominik claims the shape was inspired by two rain drops.

Vanity Fair (how to upgrade your bathroom vanity on a budget)

Painted bathroom vanity unit

Although it is not as simple as painting a room, with the right planning and prep, painting cabinets can be and an inexpensive remodel solution.

Step 1 – Remove the hardware, hinges and clean the surfaces thoroughly using a clean soft  rag or T – shirt and mineral spirits. Mineral spirits help with cleaning, de greasing and de glossing of surfaces prior to painting. They break down the gloss of oil based paints and open the pores of latex based paint providing a surface for the adhesion of subsequent layers of paint. Be sure to give the surfaces a good scrub to remove old oils, waxes and grime. This is an important step, as paint is a very forgiving material but one the one thing it refuses to abide with is a dirty, greasy surface.

Step 2 – Lightly sand the painting surfaces. If there are any imperfections like dents or groves in the surface, you may want to fill them with a good wool filler first. After sanding, repeat step 1 and clean the surface to remove any dust.

Step 3 – Prime the surface with a stain – blocking primer designed for glossy surfaces.

Step 4 – Apply at least two coats of the paint you have chosen. the the paint dry thoroughly and lightly sand between coats.

Step 5 – Put your cabinets back together after all surfaces are thoroughly dry. Be sure to keep things organised. Have a system for remembering the positioning of the doors.

Top Tips

- Chose a paint that can stand up to repeated washing and is non blocking, so it wont stick to itself when cabinets doors are closed.

- Use the premium grade when using paint from major paint manufacturers, since they tend to be thicker and have more coverage. Avoid flat finishes as theyare much harder to clean.

- Dark colors tend to show imperfections in the paint and cabinetry mush more then light colors do, and contrary to popular belief they usually highlight dirt more.
