How To Design Your Bathroom


Tips and tricks:
  • Measure the space between your walls.
  • Provide the location of doors, windows, and other space constraints.
  • Indicate the positioning of the existing plumbing if you want to limit the cost of the project.
  • Ideally allow 30" of clearance in front of the bathtub, toilet, sink base, and shower.
  • Allow 24" to 36" wide for toilet space.


Who will use this room?
  • For a family bathroom, consider optimizing storage and opting for durable and easy-to-clean materials.
  • Master bathroom - choose creatively designed sink bases that feature high-quality materials. 
  • Guest bathroom - You want it to be elegant, flamboyant, and stylish. Choose a streamlined design using bright materials

What products best suit your space?
Certain collections and products are nicely suited for smaller spaces.

What style do you like?
Contemporary, transitional, or traditional…1 tone or 2 tones… mounted on the wall, floor, or on legs; let your style do the choosing! Your bathroom style should ideally blend in with the rest of your home.

What is your budget?

The cost of a bathroom renovation should be about 5% of your home valuation, for example, $15,000 for a home worth $300,000.

It is a worthy investment! According to the Appraisal Institute of Canada, bathroom renovations are second only to kitchens in the list of works that generate the best return on investment. The recovery value is estimated at about 85%.

Keep in mind that expenses incurred vary a lot depending on the materials chosen.

Trusted Saskatoon Funeral Home Provides Important Guidelines For When Death Occurs

Since 1910, Saskatoon Funeral Home has responded to the needs of Saskatoon & area citizens of every faith and every walk of life. They have a proud history as Saskatoon's longest-serving, local, family-owned and operated, full-service funeral and cremation provider to trace its roots to the beginning days of our city. Saskatoon Funeral Home are a Trusted Saskatoon funeral home.

 In their latest article on funerals, they provide important guidelines regarding what to do when a death occurs.

When Death Occurs 

No matter if a death is sudden, or if it is something that was a long time coming, the loss of a loved one makes us feel emotional and overwhelmed. No amount of preparation can fully prepare you for the loss of a loved one. When you are in a heightened emotional state, even the most basic decisions can seem staggering. The following is a rough guideline of what needs to be done within the first 24 hours after death.

When a death occurs at home or a place of business

If the person was not under palliative home care, the police will have to be notified immediately. The police will be dispatched to the home and place the call to the coroner. From there the coroner determines whether further action is necessary. The coroner must release the deceased before a funeral home can do anything. If the person was under palliative home care, contact the home care representative if they were not present and they will notify family members what the proper procedures are to follow.

When a death occurs at a hospital/nursing home/hospice facility

The staff of a care facility such as a hospital or a nursing home will notify you and the necessary authorities immediately after a death has occurred. If a funeral home name has been provided to the hospital or nursing home, they will be notified at the time of death. If you are present at the hospital when the funeral home representative arrives, they will ask a few questions about the deceased wishes and set up a time to come into the funeral home to make arrangements, however, if you are not present a funeral director will contact you by telephone to discuss these arrangements.

Informing a Funeral Director

Once everything has been cleared with the proper authorities, the next call you place should be to a licensed funeral director.  Funeral directors are here to help you obtain a death certificate, transport the deceased, and in the event, pre-planning was not done, select a casket/urn and arrange the funeral/memorial service. Funeral directors are here to help and advise you and will work very hard to relieve the stress and logistics involved in funeral planning.

Meeting a Funeral Director

You should meet with a funeral director within 24 hours of a death to begin to make final arrangements for your loved one.  Deciding on these final arrangements may seem like a very daunting task, especially when you are in a heightened emotional state, but, funeral home staff have years of experience dealing with these issues, and strive to ensure everything goes as smoothly as possible.

Making Arrangements

First, the Funeral Director will gather the information required for registering the death. This includes:

  • Full Name and Address
  • Marital Status
  • Date and Place of Birth
  • Father’s Name, Mother’s Name (including maiden name)
  • Birthplaces of Father and Mother
  • Name of Spouse (if married or widowed, including maiden name)
  • Occupation
It is advisable to bring in a copy of the will if it is available to show who is the Executor in charge of making funeral arrangements.

If no pre-planning has been done, necessary arrangements need to be made for the funeral service. These include:
  • Scheduling the location, date, and time of the visitation and funeral service
  • Selecting burial or cremation
  • Choosing Funeral Products
  • Arranging a cemetery plot if requested
  • Preparing an obituary notice
  • Scheduling transportation arrangements
A funeral director will guide you through all these steps, using your wants, needs, and desires as a foundation to create a memorable funeral for your loved one. From here the funeral services can be personalized. Did your loved one have a favorite sports team? What was their favorite type of music? What activity was your loved one known best for? Recalling fond memories assists with the grieving process and will help honor the life of your loved one.

They are recognized by peers and offer sales, service, training & installations for residential, and commercial Heating, Cooling, and Plumbing systems in Saskatoon and the surrounding area. JOB Heating & Air are Trusted Saskatoon Furnace and Air Conditioning Experts. In their latest article, they share spring and summer HVAC maintenance tips.


Temperatures are getting warmer in Saskatchewan. The last thing you want is to have to replace your air conditioner in the middle of summer. Before those warmer days arrive, ensure your HVAC unit is ready for the new season by following these maintenance tips.

1. Remove the Cover and Clean The HVAC Unit

First on the list is the outside unit. Ensure it is turned off, then remove the cover from the unit. Next, you will want to remove leaves and debris that have accumulated around the unit throughout the winter months. Last, do a visual inspection of the unit. If the unit appears damaged, do not turn on the unit until you have had it checked by a professional.

2. Check The Refrigerant Line

On the outside of the unit, you will notice refrigerant lines leading into your home. The larger line is called the suction line. To ensure the air stays cool, the suction line is wrapped in insulation. Check the insulation for cracks or spots that are worn. If insulation is worn, it will need to be replaced. Without proper insulation, your unit will not function effectively nor cool your home efficiently. Each spring, be sure to check the refrigerant line as failing to do so could result in your unit freezing up.

3. Change The Furnace Filter

To distribute cool air throughout your home, your HVAC system uses your furnace’s air filter. If the filter is dirty, your system will have to work harder to supply cold air throughout your home. Since an air filter traps dust, pollen, and other allergens, a dirty filter will result in these allergens being spread throughout your ducts. Changing your furnace filter improves air quality and will ensure your HVAC system is functioning effectively.

4. Ensure The Thermostat Is Working

Not only do you need to check your HVAC unit, but you also need to check your thermostat. Set your thermostat to cool and test your system. Program the thermostat 4-5 degrees lower than room temperature. It may take a few minutes, but you should be able to feel the cool air blowing in. If not, it is time to call in the professionals.

5. Book Your Spring HVAC Maintenance Appointment

Following these tips will help ensure your HVAC system is ready so you can spring into the summer months with ease. However, booking a tune-up is recommended as there may be problems that only a trained technician can recognize. Book your spring maintenance appointment to ensure your HVAC system is fully prepared before the Saskatchewan summer arrives!

Contact JOB Heating and Air Conditioning to have an HVAC professional conduct a thorough maintenance inspection of your HVAC unit and address any problems it may be having. With regular maintenance from experts, your HVAC unit will produce lower energy costs, increase its efficiencies and leave you never having to worry about the maintenance yourself.

Let their team focus on finding that right hire – that is what they do best! In Express Employment's latest Saskatoon recruitment tip, they share an article on why you may want to consider hiring new grads .

Adding New Workers? Check Out The New Grads.
With summer right around the corner, business leaders will soon be seeing dozens of resumes from new graduates cross their desks. Many companies have begun preparing to add these entry-level professionals to their workforce, while others have already started the hiring process. And, it appears that this year even more employers are taking advantage of everything new grads bring to the table.
Hiring Increase Predicted
According to Forbes, a study conducted in August and September of 2014 found that the hiring of new bachelor’s degree graduates is expected to increase by 16 percent. USNews similarly reported that two other studies predicted an increase in new-grad hiring, with the National Association of Colleges and Employers expecting an 8.3 percent increase. Even out of the 65 percent of organizations that told The Society for Human Resource Management they had not yet hired any 2015 college grads, almost three-quarters still foresee hiring graduates this year. “We are beginning to see entry-level hiring pick up”, explained SHRM Survey Program Director Evren Esen. “Compared to recent years, 2015 college graduates can be optimistic in their job search.”
Businesses Benefit From New Grads

Not only is this good news for the job-seeking grads, it’s also good for the companies doing the hiring. While some business leaders are wary of hiring employees fresh out of college, smart employers understand these new professionals have a lot to offer and can greatly benefit the workplace. Their youthful energy and knowledge of what’s popular among the younger generations can be instrumental in shaping effective marketing and sales campaigns. New grads are also known for their enthusiasm and hope for the future, which can translate into hard work and the willingness to tackle big projects. And, with the constant need for innovation to stay ahead of the competition, the youngest employees are sometimes a company’s greatest assets. 
A Job Offer Isn’t Enough
With the rise in college graduate hiring, though, employers are also going to have to work harder to attract and keep this new talent wave. Forbes found that simply getting new or upcoming grads to accept the job offer doesn’t necessarily mean they’ve committed to you and your company. It’s now recommended that employers, “after making a new hire, devote effort to making them feel wanted before their start date.” Some ways to keep a new hire’s attention and build loyalty include maintaining communication through emails, phone calls, or social media, and providing relationship-building opportunities either in person or through social media sites. The more ties that are created between the new hire and employer, and the more often they’re reminded of why they want to work there, the less likely they are to take another job offer elsewhere.
This may sound like a lot of effort to go through in order to bring a young, inexperienced professional to your team. However, the war for talent has been going on for years, and now that hiring is picking back up, businesses can expect to have to fight a little harder for the top talent graduating from college this year. And, in light of all that new grads have to offer, it could be well worth it.

Express Employment Professionals allow clients to focus their efforts and time on being productive and doing what they do best – their business. Let their team focus on finding that right hire – that is what they do best!
