The caddies are idea, since if you just leave the toilet brush lying in the floor it dirties up your room. In addition, if you do not clean brushes after using them in the toilet, it can build up residue and leave a foul smell. As you can see, toilet brush caddies are nice necessities. How to choose toilet brush caddies? Musa, Chateau, Home, Outline, Wind, and Freestanding make a nice selection of toilet brush caddies. If you are searching to accomplish organic embellishments, you may like the crystal glass selections. The glass wear is sometimes structured with pure brass and wood wenges. Musa just created the latest wall-mounting caddies. You will find the latest chrome polish styles and the satin nickels. How do I choose a caddy to match my bathroom? The caddies made by Musa, i. e. most designs are crafted to fit any modern bathroom. The items are shipped from foreign legions, i. e. Italy.

Few companies sell with the item, wood wenges trims, tumblers, soap dish, and other holders. Most items sold by Musa are made of purely cut brass. Clear crystal glass is gorgeous and will fit any room. I mentioned that the caddies are designed for most modern bathrooms, yet the item will match nearly any style in Victorian rooms, regal baths, country style, and more. You may not want to choose the item to install in child baths, unless the children are older. How do I choose other bathroom items that go with the caddy?

Freestanding has a nice selection of brush caddies also. The gold are nice, yet in images it stands out loudly. I am a gold fan, i. e. I like gold tones, shades, colors, etc, yet the color in this instance is a bit disturbing to the eye. In this instance, you may want to consider the Oil Rub Bronze-Plate designed with steel. As I look at the image, I feel that the brush caddy would look nice in an antique atmosphere. I love the wind so I had to check out the images designed by Wind Collections. The brush caddies are nice if you like chrome with spurts of gold. One of the bathroom accessories you want to consider with this series is the shower corner baskets.

Let the basket dry in the sun and you are good to go. How do I find wicker baskets, shelves, etc? Shopping for wicker is easy, since most stores you visit have wicker baskets, shelves, stands, frames, wastebaskets, and more. The smaller stores may only have the smaller items, such as the shelves, wastebaskets, towel hangers, and so on. Larger stores often sell a wider variety of wickers. The Internet is your choice, since you can search for wicker sold worldwide. How will the wickers look in my bathroom? You can find some old pictures to hang on the wall to bring out the affect of the wicker. Wicker is supposed to look rough and old looking so anything you store in wickers will look good. Even if you hang ole’ wicker picture frames, and throw a rug on the floor you can rest assure that the room will look good. In addition, if you have an antique room, country room, Victorian style, or other bathroom design, it doesn’t matter because wicker looks good. In fact, wicker is probably one of the single most sold items that looks good no matter what. How costly is this wicker? Wickers do not cost a lot when compared to other bathroom accessories. In fact, you can purchase wicker baskets for as little as $1. It depends on where you shop. In addition, you can shop around at yard sales and I will almost promise that nearly everyone you visit will have wicker items. When your bathroom is done in wicker, you will love the affect that it can bring out. It’s always a good choice, especially when using them as bathroom accessories. While wicker looks good no matter where you put it, I feel that wicker benefits best in country settings, or natural surroundings. How do I use my wicker items?

If you purchased baskets, you can store bathroom accessories, such as toiletries, towels, soaps, and more.
Choosing Bathroom Accessories and Towel Poles How to choose towel stands Towel stands clear up space, since you can toss you towels on the stand rather than in the floor or on a chair. Online you will find a nice selection of stands created by Drop, Onda, Premier, Freestanding, and so on. How do I choose stands? It depends on your style of bath and taste. If you want modern styles check out the line of Drops. Onda also has a nice collection of contemporary fittings and other bath accessories. If you have a regal taste, you may want to re view the Freestanding Spas, or the line of Premiers. If you want dйcor yet are on a budget, checkout the line of Freestanding Holders. Just out of curiosity, I thought I would check out the line of spa stands. The stands are made of chrome and brass, such as Satin brass. In addition, you have a choice of oil rub bronze, brass, chrome, and satin nickel. Preferably, I like the brass in regal, modern, or Victorian environments. On the other hand, the brass will go well in nearly any bathroom. The oil rub is nice if you have a country bathroom or antique atmosphere. How much do the stands cost? It depends on your choice. If you choose the spas, you can find the items online in the price range between $67 and $82. How do I choose modern stands? Again, I am not into chrome, yet in the instance of Drops products I like the triple stands, which could go well with matching mirrors in the background. Add a little gold trimming to your layered mirrors and you will have a combination of modern and regal patterns. The item looks well with a vanity glass shelf in the background as well. Keep the gold at bay in this instance; rather offset it with minute trims of gold. Of course, your taste is different from mine, so check out the images for your self. Chrome and Satin Nickel texture is not up my alley, yet Premier has created a nice line of dual spa stands. In a peach, tan, or antique environment I would sit the stands in a corner to offset the atmosphere. Throw a few light color towels on the stand, such as tan and you have a very nice antique pattern. Premier stands are a bit pricey, so if you are on budgeting, check out the line of Freestanding. You have a choice of Satins, Brass, Chrome, and so on. How do I choose from the line of Onda? Onda has a nice selection of stands, yet you may want to save a few bucks before considering the items. If you are not worried about price, you may enjoy the chrome triple polished stands, gold/chrome polish, brass and/or chrome polish. The styles go well in white and tan textures. If you are searching for gorgeous vanity stands, you may consider the rings and stands made by freestanding collections. You have choice of one, two, or three arm stands, or else you can choose the dual ring stands. The oil rub bronze three-arm stand would look great in an antique bath, or a country setting. On the other hand, the 3-arm Satin Nickel stands would look great in antique environments, or country settings, especially if you sprinkle a few white/yellow flowers at the base. Throw a white towel on and you are set. The stands however, I believe are designed for modern baths or master bathrooms. You may like the ring stands, but keep in mind it will take more effort on your part to place your towel. If you are in a hurry often, go for the arm stands.
Choosing Bathroom Angel Accessories When decorating your bathroom you might want to think about designing the room filled with angels. There are many ways to do your bathroom with these wonderful things called angels. I like the angle touch myself this way I feel like I have an angel watching over me at times. How can I find angel decorations? You can go to any department store they should have all kinds of angles to choose from.

Choosing Decorative Towels and Bathroom Accessories How to choose decorative bathroom towels Choosing ornamental towels is not easy nowadays, since today you have a wide array of fabrics to choose from. To help you choose however, we can consider the binds made of satin and appliquйs combined with bands, and over locked finished edges. Lace trim makes up the towels. Terry cloth is a popular brand, which you can add Satin to offset the towels. How to choose Satin upshot? When selecting the Satin upshots you may want to purchase your own, or else handcraft the material. Use your towels, such as the toweling, or purchase a set and stitch reversing you course. To start, tie the cloth using edges (Scallop) and then use your polyester textiles of satin at the hem, start binding, followed by accenting the fabric by serger binding. Once you finish, you can put in bands, which will detail your towels. How do I choose materials for locks on my machine? You will need to mingle the monograms, which you can purchase at any craft shop. Once you have the monograms, iron it onto the material, and in place. Raise the flat naps on the towel by brushing it lightly. It is easy to invent your own towels. Otherwise, you can purchase a wide array of bath towels online, or at any department store. Keep in mind however, that creating your own towels is fun, and you get what you want. Once you finish handcrafting your towel, you can add trim to your fabric. Use lace textile, since it will make a picture design. Now let’s get to sewing: You want to start out with a basic towel. Purchase fabrics, which are easy to wash. Consider taffeta, or you can choose polyesters or satin. Once you have the towel, get rid of the stabilizer, and choose a selection of stitching threads that match your shades, as well as your cotton. (1) Trim the image of your textile sewn onto the fabric to make a mirror. (2) Confiscate the extra model and use a craft pencil/pen to spot your selected areas to sew. (3) Once you have cut the pattern, you want to place the other pattern (Stabilizer) should be smaller and glued to the other patterns. Use the extra model and put it on the left surface of the textile. (4) Stitch the textile, and begin cutting the material. You will need your first section, which you want to learn room for the shape to fit its margin. Use craft pins to hold the material in place, starting at the right. On the left side add pins and pin it extra textile. Make your first pattern, i. e. begin stitching. (5) Stitch in a straight line and unfasten your pins. (6) If you have access fabric, trim it. Avoid slicing your loops. You are almost finished; all you need to do now is to repeat the steps three through five. In step seven and eight you will need to prepare your machine, or needle and thread. It is your choice whether you want to use a sewing machine, or hand materials. If you want a zigzag effect, move your space closer. You want the tension of your needle thread loose, and position the bobbin to the left. How to choose thread: When you handcraft any materials, it is wise to coordinate your thread. If you purchased a plain white towel, then use white threads. Also, sew the satin, appliquй, using coordinated threads. Once you choose your threads remove the stabilizer by tearing it away and removing it from the left side. Avoid pulling your loops. Now you are ready to bind and scallop your new towels, adding the materials to the edge.
Choosing your Bathroom Accessories for Storage If you have a cluttered bath, you may want to consider a wide array of bathroom accessories, including the storage shelves. Most people store items in linen closets, below in sink cabinets, or inside shelves installed in a bathroom. Some of us do not have this luxury. Still, those who do have the luxury often face clutter. Online or at any store, you will find cabinet organizers or the common pullout drawers. Shaker boxes, wicker baskets, hatboxes, shoeboxes, etc, all make great bathroom accessories for storing. In addition, you can add a sink skirt below your sink, especially if you do not have doors to hide your items. How do I choose? It depends on what you want. If you enjoy the 3-stacked picnic baskets then you may want to consider the wickers. The color and pattern is based on the texture of your bathroom. You can place the baskets in the corner of your bathroom to store items. If you have a cluttered sink, then try purchasing small wicker baskets to store your items, such as colognes, perfumes, hair sprays, dryers, cosmetics, and so on. How do I choose shaker boxes? Shaker boxes are usually small boxes. You want to go online to choose the boxes, since the market has a wide selection. If you are accessing a country bath, then you may want to consider a collection of the boxes. The boxes will add enchanting style to your country surrounding. If you have a traditional bath, or even a country bath you may want to consider the traditional pie safes. Pie safes stand in the corner of your bath, which it is similar to a shelf. The doorway is made of glass frame. The storage facility is ideal for storing towels, linen, or cleaning supplies. In addition, if you have an old-fashion bath, you may want to add a rocking chair designed for children to the room. The chair will hold items, such as towels. Mount the chair to your wall to clear up space. How do I clear up space in my bathtub? Try choosing bathroom accessories, such as the wired-over storage, or the tub trays. The tub trays lapse-over your tub side or back, and allows you to store toys, soaps, wash clothes, etc. The wire-over storage provides you the same capabilities, yet you can store shampoos and conditioners in few, depending on what you select. I like the shower bags, or mesh bags also. If you have a shower, the bags enable you to store soaps, shampoos, conditioners, shaving cream, razors, bathing toys, and more. If you are creative, you can design your own medicine cabinet, which makes a great storage. Ultimately, you can purchase a wide array of medicine cabinets online, or at Home Depots. If you are designing a child’s bath, consider the aquarium cabinets, toss in an aquarium toilet seat, shower curtain, rug, etc, and you have a brand new surrounding that your children will enjoy. How do I choose exotic patterns and colors? It again depends on your style. If you want exotic you can add a few live plants and vines to your room. Exotic is too general to point a finger, so considering your style is important. Exotic surroundings however often have outlandish, striking, bizarre, mysterious, alien, etc items in the surrounding. If you add plants and vines, add a few nature-based pictures and frames on the wall. Paint the walls greenish, and add green tiles. You could also add foreign pictures and frame, paint your walls black, match the tiles, and set the room off with fluorescent lights. Next, you may want to crochet a rug.
Decorating the Empty Spaces in your Bathroom with Accessories Do you have extra space in your bathroom and nothing to put in it? Fill it up by fixing up that old straight back chair you have in the shed. It’s easy to decorate an old chair and make it turn into the talk of time. Take the old chair or bench you have in the shed; go to the thrift shop, goodwill store or even to a yard sale. Sometimes you can buy the old chairs very cheap. People are always setting their old kitchen chairs on the curb, stop and ask if you can have it; they’ll probably give it to you instead of the garbage man. How to choose your pattern? Decide first what dйcor and colors you’re going to use. Be sure to go along with what you have already in there. If you own birds, you can place a birdhouse on your chair. Be creative and think about it before starting your new project. People will notice it everytime they go into the bathroom. Besides filing up an empty spot, you can use it at the same time to put your socks on. Getting out of the shower or tub, a chair comes in handy to sit on while putting on your shoes or even while drying your feet off. Decorating is easy and fun and you’ll be proud of what you have accomplished. When redoing a chair or bench you first need a theme, decide on the colors and then get to work. How to remove paint? All that old paint or varnish needs to be removed. You can find paint and varnish at most stores where paint is sold. After all, after the old paint is removed, sand it down to smooth out the nick and scratches. The paint on the chair itself needs to be enamel so the moisture can be wiped off easily. Paint your chair; making sure, you use small amounts on the brush to keep it from running and making streaks in the paint when it dries. Let it dry for a couple of days before doing anything more to it. How to choose additional bathroom accessories for your chair: You can purchase stencils; rubber stamps or even draw where you want to put a flower or etc. on it. Using ceramic paint in the color or shade of your choice put your design on it. Make it simple but colorful and be creative. You can buy ceramic paint and the brushes to use in any department store that sells craft supplies. When choosing your colors make sure the shades blend in with what you already have on the walls. When your chair or bench is done stand back and view what you have accomplished. It will surprise you how creative you can be and it is fun too. Do you like to read for relaxation in the tub? Is there an empty spot next to the chair to sit a basket on the floor and put a couple magazines in it? Some people like to read when they go in the bathroom. A small basket will keep your reading material well, all in one spot so it isn’t walked on or wet when you step out of the tub or shower. If you are not a reader, but want to add a little more to your bathroom, set a small stand next to it, if there is a shelf on the bottom put some fancy towels on it, take the matching washcloths, and make an artificial plant to set on the top. Making the flowerpot is easy. Just Take a fancy pot or paint one and use one of the stamps you used on the chair and stamp on it. Next, you roll each washcloth up as if you were putting napkins on the dining room table. Stand the rolled washcloths on end around the pot and put an artificial flower in it. Now you have a stand you can use for those towels and washcloths on special occasions. You can perhaps lay those magazines on one corner, now you have the magazine rack and your towels where people can see but not touch. Remember don’t overdo it. Make it simple and creative.
Feel Safer in Your Bathroom by Installing Grab Bars to Your Shower Wall The shower can be a very scary place when all those soap suds start to accumulate on the floor of your shower. One way to feel safer in the shower is to install a grab bar to the wall. Here are the tools you will need and directions to properly install a grab bar in your tiled bathroom shower. Once you have acquired a grab bar you need to collect the tools needed to install it. The following are the tools you will need: Philips-head screwdriver Drill 1/8 inch masonry bit or glass and tile bit Stud finder or a length of wire Tape measure Silicone caulk Sharp awl or carbide glass and tile drill bit Wood bit, 1/16 narrower than the size of mounting screws The first thing that you will need to do to install your grab bar is to locate a wall stud. If you have access to a stud finder this will help greatly. Run the stud finder along the wall until a wall stud is located and mark the spot with a fine point marker. If you do not have an electronic stud finder, no worries, just take a 1/8 masonry bit or glass and tile bit and simply drill a hole into the grout. Then take your length of wire and make a bend in it. Put the wire in the hole and by spinning it left and right you should hit a stud. If you do not locate a stud, the hole that you just drilled can be filled with a slight bit of silicone caulk. Make sure to flatten the dab of silicone caulk so it does not protrude from the grout line, allow the caulk to dry for about three hours. If you have powdered grout handy, mix up a bit and patch the hole. Re-drill another hole until you locate a stud. When you do find a stud, measure 16 inches from that hole and you should be able to drill into another stud. You will want to mark your stud locations so that you can measure from the base of the tub to determine the placement of your bar. Place your bar so that each end is over a stud and mark the screw holes that are in the mounting bracket. To drill the mounting holes into tile you will need to make a starting point for the drill bit or else the bit will run across the tile. To make a starting point use a sharp awl or afore mentioned drill bit. Using your hand, twist the instrument on your make to make a slight impression on the tile; this will keep your drill bit from slipping. Do not use a punch or you are likely to crack your tile. Use the glass and tile bit to drill your hole. If using a masonry bit, place tape over the tile and drill slowly to avoid shattering the tile. You don’t want to break your tiles when screwing the mounting brackets on either so use a bit that is 1/32 wider than the size of the mounting screw you will be using. Start drilling the hole slowly and with even pressure so as not to slide off your mark. Use light pressure when drilling to avoid cracking the tile. Make sure not to drill deeper than the tile and it backing. At this point, you will need to change your bit to the wood bit 1/16 narrower than the screw. This will make a pilot hole in the studs. The final step is to mount the bar. Silicone caulk will need to be applied to the holes before mounting; this is to protect the wood and backing boards behind the tiles from leaking water. Simply screw the bar to the wall. You will want to use stainless steel screw or they will rust. Tighten the screws firmly making sure to not over tighten them or they will crack the tile. You should now have your grab bar properly installed. You can now take a peaceful, relaxing shower and feel safer in the process.

People that cannot sit up they can lie down on a shower bed and enjoy their shower. Most people will use a chair when they cannot stand in the shower. Having the right equipment is essential, since it reduces stress. Most elderly people find it difficult to bath and shower without stressing, which is why many elderly people will stop bathing. Handicap showers encourage the person, since they can relax and enjoy a nice bath. Tell me more about the handicap showers: Let me explain this shower to you so that you will understand it a little better. The handicap showers are made for shower chairs and beds. These showers make it easier to put the people in and out of the showers.

You can add handrails to make it easier yet. Some handrails are portable and can be removed when they are no longer needed. Be sure they are screwed into the floor to keep them from moving when in use. Bath time can be a chore for your loved one to do on their own if they need to hang onto something. The tub can really cause a problem when your loved one can’t get up and down or step high enough to get into it. How about using a lift chair for them? All they have to do is sit in it and hit a button and it will lift them up and into the water. There are also manual lifts to help take them from the wheel chair into the tub. The manual lift takes up a lot of space but very nice because it can be used in others areas as well like lifting from their chair to the bed or another chair. One person can control this manual chair by putting the cloth swing into the wheelchair and setting the patient on it. Than there is a bar on wheels that you wheel over them and hook the mat on, crank the bar up and swing them over into the tub. No lifting and your loved one can relax in the tub. Taking them out is just a simple just reversing the process. Sometimes showers are easier for you and the loved one to get into. You can also install a walk-in shower to make life easier. There is to stepping in and out just walk in. These come in many sizes to accommodate your needs from small walk in to stand in to large enough to put a wheel chair in them.

Some of the shower chairs have holes in the seat for the water to run through, some have arms for them to hang onto even wheels can be put on them to help move them around. Shower chairs are nice with wheels on them; you can move yourself around in or out of the shower with no assistance.

How can I use baskets in my bathroom? I like baskets in my bathroom; since baskets will adjoin shades to anything you have in the room. Baskets also allow you to coordinate with other bathroom accessories, such as shower curtains, throw rugs, sink skirts, etc. On the market, you can find many baskets to choose from. Baskets come in all kinds of shades, contours, and dimensions.
Ultimately, you can create your own baskets. Creating your own is fun, since you put heart into your own creation, which brings grand rewards for years to come. How are baskets created?
Some baskets are made of common newspapers. In addition, you can create baskets from organic grasses from the sea. One can even create baskets from wheat, straw, or uncovered timber, etc. People make baskets from old rags lying around the house also. I have seen some baskets made out of shoeboxes. You can make baskets out of anything you want to, providing you know what type of bathroom accessories you desire to put in your home.

I use the baskets to store various items, including correspondence, invoices, etc in the kitchen, yet in the bathroom I store bathe items, such as skin goods, liniments, etc. You can also store hand towels, cosmetics, shaving blends etc in the baskets. I like baskets because they are pretty, and it offers you a great storage facility for many items.
Baskets can be used as compost bucket, or you can store your hair items in the baskets. Baskets give you the advantage of sitting them on shelves or the floor to fill up that vacant corner legroom. You can use the baskets to store your laundry.
The storage bin will free up disorder around your bathroom. How to decorate baskets: You can use a wide array of items to decorate your baskets. When decorating your own basket try using items, such as ribbons, binds, clasps, etc. You can find old items around the house and come up with your own ideals. Perhaps some idle textile might make a great bend over for your basket. Toting up ribbons to your basket close to the pinnacle is a great idea. In addition, you can interlace ribbon onto your basket, which you cannot go wrong with creating your own exclusive approach. One of my favorites is the ivy storage baskets. The ivy has a variety of shades that go with everything in your bathroom. In addition, ivy is easy to manage, which means you can create virtually anything you desire. If you want to add style, try adding dried floral. The flowers will enhance the basket by adding texture, as well as color. At craft stores, you will find a wide array of floral, or you can dry your own. Moss is good also. The moss works to fill in gaps around the edges and sides of your floral arrangement. Use the moss, adding it to the crown to alter effects. Creating baskets is fun, and you have the choice of designing wall hangers, ivy, floral, and so on. How to choose your patterns? It depends on your taste. If you are searching to accomplish uniqueness, then consider your ideas, tastes, desires and other patterns sold on the market. You have wide array of colorful items or plain textures to consider. How would I make my own baskets? When making your own basket you will need a few items to get in progress. First, you will need to consider what you intend to generate. Try making a draft before starting your basket project. As you draw up the floor plan, consider basket weaves, and other items you can use to design your product.
How to Bind and Scallop Bathroom Accessories and Towels Now that you have designed your Terry-towels, i. e. hand-sew them, you may want to add binds and scallop. Before we get started you will need to purchase an unadorned Terry towel, or towel of choice. Preferably, you want to select washable cloth, as well as medium-weight material. Consider taffeta, satin, or polyester. How to create binds and scallop: Once you have your materials gathered, (1) use tissue paper to create the edge of your scallop. When you draw the edge of the scallop, add an odd figure in the pattern, especially odd enough to create a curve. Create a 1 inch depth, starting at the lower point and work toward the high point. Now with your tissue in hand, fasten it to the towel, using craft pins. Next, use rotary cutters, or sewing scissors to trim the edges of your scallop. (2) Use your rotary cutters and/or scissors to carve the strip of hems and start piecing the strips, joining it so that it creates your strip bind. Lengthways, press your strip until it folds in half and on the left side. Avoid misleading the width of your strip. (3) Next, on the right side of your fabric, pin the strip bind. (4) Scant darn quarter inch starting at the raw edges. (5) In the direction of the lower border or edge, press the narrow piece. Over the fabric, fold the binding ends over to the side of your cloth. Press and enfold your bind about the border/edges of your scallop and secure it with pins. Make sure that the pins insert into the trench of the seams. (6) At the trench, begin stitching in the direction of the right plane. On the left plane, baste, using the catch bind scheme. You have completed your scallop and binding, which is the start of creating your embellished and decorative towels. Towels make great bathroom accessories, since the colors will augment your environment. Now you are ready to add bands and lace trim to your towel. How to create bands: To formulate strips, you will need another plain or unadorned towel. Again, you want to consider fabrics, which you can wash by machine. Polyester is good, as well as satins or taffeta. Choose medium-weight cloth. (1) Starting at the hems of your textile reduce a strip of your towel. You want to make the width of the band three times smaller in width than the finished breadth. Next, use your rotary hedge clippers or sewer scissors and cut one-inch strip, extending a considerable distance than your breadth. (2) Facing down to the right, put your strip on the fabric and level: Once you finish ironing the surface, avoid distorting or stretching your fabric, and press aloft. Press so that it balances with the bandwidth. (3) On the opposite side, press aloft: Press the borders of the strip, forcing the edges between and balancing it with the width of your finished work. At the top layers, and at the raw edges, press the edge if the two do not join. (4) About half inch, press the cloth under at the narrow piece ends of the hems. Do not stretch your material. Fasten the strip hems with pins in the location of choice. At the outer edges of your fabric, begin stitching and bend the narrow piece. Darn your textile on each side of your cloth, darning until you sew the ends: Next, stitch your lace and serger.
