How To Design Your Bathroom


1. MEASURE YOUR BATHROOM & DRAW YOUR PLAN

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.

2. SPECIFY YOUR NEEDS & BUDGET

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.


3. CHOOSE A FURNITURE COLLECTION THAT MATCHES YOUR TASTES

Trusted Saskatoon Kitchen Store Wheatland Fireplace, Kitchen & Bath's Kitchen Faucet Buying Guide

Your first step into the beautiful Wheatland Fireplace Kitchen & Bath Saskatoon showroom will help you understand why Wheatland Fireplace has been given the Thumbs up by Trusted Saskatoon. Wheatland loves their customers and as a result, their customers love and TRUST them. In their latest kitchen faucet tip, they share a great kitchen faucet buying guide. 

Kitchen Faucet Buying Guide

Whether you’re replacing an old faucet or installing something new in a remodeling plan, there are a few things to know before the water starts to flow.

Faucet Types: Deck-Mount or Wall-Mount Faucets 

Deck-mount faucets attach to the countertop or rest on the sink. These are usually common kitchen sink faucets. Wall-mount faucets attach through the wall and hang over the sink. If you choose a replacement deck-mount faucet, the number of holes in your sink is important. One-piece faucets, with an integrated handle and spout, need one hole for the handle/spout piece and another for the sprayer. Traditional faucets, with hot and cold taps, require three holes for the taps and spout and a fourth for the sprayer. Additional options — soap dispensers or integrated sprayers — create a different set of requirements. If you’re starting from scratch, choose the faucet before the sink, so you can buy a sink with the appropriate number of holes for your selection. Alternatively, holes can be drilled into the sink to accommodate the faucet. More often than not, the best kitchen sink faucets come equipped with the sprayer feature.

Tip: Escutcheons, also called base plates or deck plates, are ornamental plates that cover additional holes and allow the installation of a one-hole faucet on a three-hole sink.

Faucet Handles

Typically, kitchen sink faucets have either one handle rotating directionally to change water temperature or two handles for mixing hot and cold water. These include a sprayer that sits to the side or a pull-out or pull-down sprayer with spray and stream options. Hands-free faucets add a new dimension to the kitchen. These can be touch-or motion-oriented and come with both temperature and volume control, making these faucets a safe choice for homes with children. Hands-free faucets work well with the universal design concept, making living spaces more accessible and accommodating for every level of physical ability.

Tip: If you choose a pull-out or pull-down sprayer, look for a faucet with a magnetic catch so that the hosing keeps its form.

Sinks for Specialized Tasks

Before you choose your faucet, think about the ways you use your sink. Do you wash a lot of bulky pots and pans? Are you bathing a baby? A high-arc faucet might make your tasks more comfortable. If you have room in the kitchen, consider installing a bar prep faucet in a side sink. The double setup makes it one of the best kitchen faucets because of the ease of keeping meats and vegetables separate during meal preparation.

Faucet Finishes

If you prefer a unified look in your kitchen, check out the selection of kitchen sink faucets with a finish that matches the cabinet hardware. Bronze, chrome, and nickel/stainless steel are available at every price point.


Faucet Features

In-faucet filters are great for filtering tap water. Keep volume and maintenance in mind to decide if this is the right filtering option for your family. Soap dispensers make it easy to keep kitchen counters clear of clutter. Hot-water dispensers are great for hot beverages and pot filling. A kitchen faucet with a sprayer makes for a great feature. You can use the sprayer to get excess grime off of your dishes and into the drain quickly and efficiently.


Faucet Installation and Operation

There are two types of faucet installations: top mount and bottom mount. Top-mount faucets attach with screws through the bottom of the faucet piece from underneath the counter. Bottom-mount faucets attach with screws through the top of the faucet piece. There are four types of faucet mechanisms: ball valve, ceramic disc, compression valve, and cartridge. The type won’t affect your day-to-day use but will affect faucet repairs and maintenance down the road.

Tip: If you have cabinets above your kitchen sink faucets, measure the height available from the deck plate to the bottom of the upper cabinet. Keep this number in mind when shopping.

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.

SPRING INTO SUMMER WITH HVAC MAINTENANCE

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.
