Old Bathrooms Turned to New

Featured

My wife and I watch the DIY channel a lot an often we get home improvement ideas. Recently we had the idea of making over the bathrooms and contacted a company for custom mirrors in Brooklyn. The mirrors would be the main attraction of the bathrooms, and combined with new modern style sinks and touch less faucets, the bathrooms would look like something that you would normally find in a fancy hotel. This would be our first attempt at doing a makeover on a bathroom. I bought some books on the subject to make things easier, but they really didn’t help.

Since a professional was installing the mirrors, my wife and I tried to do everything else ourselves. For the most part, putting new tile on the bathroom floor was easy, and inside the shower as well. It was a lot of work, but we did it without much problems. Installing the new sinks and the faucets were an entirely different story. Even though I had the book to help me, and a manual in front of me, installing them were still pretty difficult. Eventually, we called a friend to help us with the installation.

When my friend installed the sinks and faucets, he made it look easy. I guess since he’s done more installations that we have, stuff like this comes pretty easy to him. We finally had the bathrooms we wanted, and the first time I used the touch less sink was when I washed all of the grime off my hands from the work. I waved my hand in front of the sink and the water came on automatically. I could even adjust the temperature by waving my hand over each controller for hot and cold water. It’s amazing the kind of technology people can think of when they use their minds.

The roach problem in my home was unbearable a few months ago. I couldn’t really figure out where they were coming from, but I knew that I wanted them gone. I tried using some stuff that I got from the store and sprayed it everywhere, but none of that stuff worked. I put down various baits and traps, and even used some natural items that were said to stop roaches, all with no success. The final straw was when I installed an electric powered repeller that only attached more. I called for pest control in Brooklyn to deal with these nasty bugs.

The pest control workers came dressed in their uniforms and had all kinds of equipment attached to them. Continue reading
