Dream Bathroom

This is a sponsored post for Diamond Links. 

If you think about the rooms in your home that you use a lot, the bathroom may come to mind. There are different types of bathrooms. There are powder rooms which are just a sink and a toilet and full bathrooms with a tub and shower. 

If I were to think of my dream bathroom, I would know exactly what I would want. It would have pretty light blue walls. It would also have a big vanity with double sinks. The sinks and counters would be a solid surface. Either granite or marble. All the fixtures would be brushed nickel. I would love big white cabinets with Posts of storage. A nice linen closet with built in shelves. I would also want a heated towel rack. The drawers would have built in organizers. 

The toilet would be in its own little room complete with a door of its own. The toilet seat would be heated. It would automatically flush too. I would have heated floors and heated lamps to keep it warm. There would be a separate stand up shower with a really nice hand held shower head. The tub would be huge with lots of jets and comfortable seating. 

My aunt and uncle live in the mountains so they have a huge picture window over their tub. I don’t think that would work in my current home. I would also like to have a built in fish tank in the wall if possible. Maybe even some dimmable lighting and built in speaker system. I love singing in the shower. Music is a must for me. 

Some people find solace in their bathrooms. It’s a great place to relax and refresh. Getting work done on your home can seem like a daunting experience. It’s really not that bad. As long as you have a professional do the work. You don’t want to hire some random people to work on your home. Remember that your home is an investment. You need to make sure the contractor or company is licensed. You also need to make sure they know what are doing. You don’t want to allow just anyone to come in your home let alone knock down walls and rip out your sink or toilet.

 It’s also a good idea to ask for recommendations from family or friends. Reviews are always great to read too. Remember that when you read reviews, you have to be objective. You need to be able to discern if the person writing the review is angry for something small. Check multiple reviews. Look at the Better Business Bureau rankings. It’s not a bad idea to take a look at their license or licenses online. Just because they say they have one, they might be dishonest. 

You can definitely find a a great company to help make your dream bathroom with a new bath Baton Rouge. You will be off in your bathroom oasis before you know it. You will also wonder why you waited so long to make it a reality.

Reasons to get an oil change at a car dealership

When you have a car, you do have to keep up with the maintenance of the vehicle. One of the biggest things you have to do is oil changes. I have personally never done an oil change myself. It seems like too much work. One of my friends, wanted to do an oil change on his two cars. We happened to be at Walmart when he decided to do this. We went to the automotive section no less than four times. He kept forgetting things. It’s a hassle to figure out exactly which oil filter you need and all the extra stuff to do it yourself. The oil filters are unorganized and they might even be out of them. Forget using the books and guides they supply at Walmart because they don’t even have all the cars in them. It’s really a pain. We spent twenty minutes each time we went back there looking for things. 

Another thing you would need is an oil pan. When you are done with the oil change you have to figure out what to do with the old oil. You can’t just flush it down the toilet or throw it in the trash. You have to dispose of it properly, which could mean going to the hazardous waste disposal place in your area. They always seem to have weird hours too. Something else you have to consider is space and having the proper tools to do an oil change. It’s honestly a lot of work. 

My friend who said he was going to change his cars’ oil said he never wants to do an oil change alone in case something happens. That’s probably a good idea. I personally think that going to your car dealership where you know they have knowledge of your specific make and model is the smart thing to do. You don’t have to worry about finding the right parts. You also don’t have to have any tools. You won’t lose screws or tools in your car. Just seriously go to your car dealership it will save you tons of time and you won’t have to worry about it.

Getting your car windows tinted

You can get all kinds of personalization for your car. You can usually pick the color and the type of interior. You can also pick which features you would like. Some cars have spoilers or what I call little shark fins on the top. You can definitely use your car to express yourself. A common thing to do is get your windows tinted. The best place to get it done is a car dealership. The reasons for that are:

You don’t have to worry about getting a bad tint job. The person tinting your car has done it before. You know that they are experienced. It’s not just some random person you may have hired off of Facebook or Craigslist. 

The tint job will be even and they will give you proper directions like don’t roll your windows down for a certain amount of time. 

You won’t have to worry about a dealership picking up shop and running off if you do end up having a problem with the tint job. 

The dealership is up to date on the laws about tinting. It’s actually illegal to have your windows tinted too dark. It becomes a safety issue. It’s also not safe for law enforcement in the event that you need to be pulled over or identify someone. 

The dealership will have all the tools and tint needed so you can get it done and move on with your day. You can also possibly loan a car while they are doing the tint if you have somewhere that you really need to go. That’s always a great option if you need to go pick up your kids or go somewhere. However, dealerships usually have a nice little hospitality room for clients to wait in. It usually has a television and beverages. Some of them have snacks or vending machines. I have seen some horrible tint jobs in my time, it’s just best to start with the dealership and save time.
