New Style of Basin

Changing the size or Shape

It is more complex when you decide to change the size or the shape of the wash basin, but it can be done. In fact, you may decide you would like to change both at the same time. A larger size means you will need to cut into the counter top to allow it to fit or change the counters. For a smaller size fit, you will need to change the countertops.

The same is true if you would like to change from one shape to another. The typical wash basin is round, but you can go with one that is square or long and skinny such as a rectangular shape. You can also go with a corner design. For the more dynamic changes, it is best to hire a contractor to do the work for you. They will have the tools and the expertise to get it done.

Explore the Possibilities

Always spend some time to explore the possibilities with wash basin changes. You want to be happy with the outcome. If you plan to do the work on your own, make sure you follow safety precautions and you secure the element in place correctly. You don’t want to have any errors that could result in damages or injuries.

Always go with high quality products, they will last much longer and look nicer. A cheaply made wash basin isn’t going to be durable and you will soon regret that purchase. The price doesn’t have to be incredibly high for you to be able to fit it into your budget. Compare prices, brand reputation, and even where you buy it from to ensure you get the best overall deal.

In addition to any style of set up you desire, you can also determine the colour of the product and what it is made from. You can go with a simple change that is similar to what you had or completely change the colour scheme. It all depends on what your final goal is for the look in that room. Rather than think of it as change, think of it as personalised upgrades!

This is a simple but effective change that can make your life easier and more efficient. At the same time, it can get rid of an older sinker that was an eyesore to look at or to replace one that shows its age. Going with something modern is a great idea and one of the easiest facelifts you can do in your home.

Easy Life Hacks

A leaky faucet is too irritating; it won’t let you sleep. So, how can you make the noise go away? The answer is quite easy. Simply take a thread, tie one end of the thread on the tip of the leaky tap and leave the other end on the faucet. Remember that the thread should go down from under the tap and not over the tap. The leaking water drop will flow down through the thread and there will be no noise. But, remember this is just a temporary solution. Ultimately, you have to get a plumber to fix the leakage.

It’s quite common that the dustbin bags become squishy because of the food juices. This makes the smell worse. So, how can you prevent that? The answer – put old newspaper at the bottom of the bin. It will absorb the food juices.

This is a common case with almost every household. Getting problems with sprinklers? No worries, make your own! All you need is a Pepsi bottle and loads of duct tapes. Put your water pipe inside the bottle and make the bottle air-tight by wrapping around loads of duct tape on the bottle’s neck and the pipe. Open the tap and let the bottle get filled. Just the moment it gets filled make some holes on the bottle using a pointed tool. That’s it you have your homemade sprinkler.

The answer is simple. Put your mobile phone in a zip lock bag, and mount the zip bag on the back of the seat in front of you; you can use some tapes to stick the bag. Make a hole in the bag and watch a movie, song, or whatever you like.

Not everyone is a chef and not everyone knows the art of separating yolk from egg white just by hands. Besides, you don’t want to get your hands dirty. But, the truth is anyone can easily separate yolk from egg white. Break the egg on a plate, get an empty Pepsi bottle and squeeze it a little. Turn the bottle upside down, bring it close to the egg yolk and slowly release the bottle. The yolk will automatically get inside the bottle as it get’s sucked in. There you have your egg white and yolk separated.

Perfect Toilet

Back in the day, a toilet was simply a hole in the ground. One day someone decided there should be seat so they carved a hole in a bit of wood and threw that over the hole. In Tudor England a public toilet was a series of holes in wood on a bridge. You’d simply sit down over a hole, do your business and get on with your day. The business would go into the water below. No muss, no fuss… until they realized where they were getting their drinking water from was also where people were relieving themselves and then they had to figure out a better way.

Years later and someone came up with the idea that a toilet should flush the waste away, and several designs later came the toilet that we are familiar with today. Of course throughout history they have changed in size and shape but the basic flushing mechanism remains unchanged. There are tall toilets and short ones, ones that have a round seat and those that have an oval one, ones that flush from the incorporated tank on the back and those older versions that have a tank way up the wall allowing gravity to play a bigger role.

In some parts of the world we see toilets that allow us to crouch over them, squat if you will with some people saying that this is the best and most effective way to do our business. Squat toilets are becoming more popular in North America now as people realize that you don’t have to strain so much and the squat is actually better than sitting in order to get the job done.
