Bathroom Colours

These days bathroom colours come in all shapes and sizes. With a small bath room it is important to choose bathroom colours that will enhance the room space. Choosing the wrong bathroom colours can make your room look smaller and more enclosed which is especially important when your Bathroom is on the smaller side.

Choosing light airy bathroom colours makes a room bright and will help it appear more spacious. Also by keeping things plain and simple and only having one bathroom colour you will keep your bathroom looking less busy and will also give the illusion of a bigger Bathroom.

For the exact same reason is it a good idea to stay away from the darker bathroom colours for a small bathroom. If you have the space, you can however be more adventurous and start looking at darker Bathroom furniture and wall/floor tiles.

As a general rule when picking bathroom tiles it is a good idea to go for tiles with a matt finish this allows for easier cleaning as smear marks are not left when cleaning also with this regard light bathroom colours will be even better.

Tuesday, 5 October 2010 deleted my account

OK So I got home today to find the another blog I kept on had been deleted. Not really sure why and all they do is send me an email with a link to the TOS. I Just make normal posts like here. I'm really anoyed because I've spent hours writign useful content that have just deleted and now I can't copy it to paste else where. Kinda sucks, its seem like all they want are blogs with no out going links and plaster your pages with advertising.

To those of you that use I would urge you to think about getting your own blog or more somewhere like Blogger!

I'll post back soon,

Will it ever stop raining?

So we got to the job for the day this morning and just a simple U shaped worktop replacement. Usually a bit of rain doesn't really stop us but today its been way to heavy and unfortunately has to re-schedule the job. Luckily we hadn't yet stripped out the old kitchen so didn't leave the customer with out water or something to cook on.

So instead of fitting Kitchen Worktops I'm sat here in front of my PC and thought I'd make a quick blog post. Our site has been quite busy for the last few days as one of our keywords for the site has got to number 1. Well, 1 or 2 it seems to be changing by the minute which is very frustrating.

This week I've been working on a few more article to add a bit more content for users, you can see my new article on Kitchen Shelves, Cutting Worktops and Used Cookers.

If your stuck on a subject or would like me to write son something particular leave me a msg in the comments.

Its been a long week and I'm really looking forward to the weekend, I Will try and make another post towards the end of next week.

Looking forward to my holiday!

Hey guys, I'm excited because I've just booked up my holiday for next year. Although its a long way off, well May seems long way off when you have to get through the Winter first. I'm going on holiday with my girlfriend and her family on a cruise. I'm just hoping I do not get sea sick as I do on small boats. I've been looking at the pictures and the boat looks more like a floating hotel anyway.

I've been busy working on the Worktop Magic website this week.  For those of you thinking about fitting your own kitchen worktops make sure you check my Worktop Edging article I've also added some information about Kitchen Drawers Let me know what you think about the articles and tell me if you think I need to add more content.  I'm hoping to add some more pictures shortly. I added some videos to you tube the other day, I'll post them below one is for joining the worktops with BB complete and the other is another short video on how to router worktops, demonstrating on how you must always cut into the rolled edge.

What a Week! Would forget my head if it wasn't scewed on :)

This week has not been without its tests. As usual if something is going to go wrong is usually does on a Friday. I got to my worktop fit for the day and realised I had left my silicon gun at home, not a good idea when you are the other side of the city. Luckily my customer had a spare which meant I didn't have to go by one from a hardware store.

We did three new worktop fits this week so with that and the extra work I' have been doing on my Kitchen Worktops website, Worktop Magic. Its been a busy week.

For those of you that are interested I just finished writing an article on Cabinet Doors it has details about how to choose a company and how to go about the whole process. You would think it would be easy but there are a lot of people out there that will try to rip you off by giving you a price that's way off the mark.

A nice relaxing weekend in front of me now, I was supposed to be going camping but with the Man Flu I developed yesterday I'm going to stay in and just take Worktop Orders from the comfort of my Sofa.

Will Post Again Soon!

Safety While Fitting Worktops

I just finished writing an article for my website about Router Safety Rules. I went out with another kitchen fitter the other day and was shocked by the lack of health and safety awareness he had. Tools laying everywhere, hanging neck chain, no eye protection.. it was just a accident waiting to happen.

A lot of people who come on to my kitchen worktops website, people that are not fitters by trade and want to do a bit of Kitchen Worktop DIY. These people should have a good idea of health and safety practices before they undertake a kitchen worktop replacement project. If people in the trade are taking such a back seat I thought it was imperative to let the user of my site know the potential dangers involved.

Some are very guessable like wearing eye protection and don't touch the router blade etc... But I don't think people realise how easily things like having long hair and wearing dangling items such as ties can cause all sorts of serious accidents.

There are many hidden dangers in the kitchen at the best of times, So I would advise you to reed my guide. Click on the link above, But also read through any Safety material that is supplied with your tools.

Replacing Kitchen Worktops

As a service over at my main website Worktop Magic, we provide kitchen worktops to people across the UK but a lot of people don't know that we actually fit locally as well. So I decided to put a case study together on our Kitchen Worktop Replacements and went out with one of the fitters to take some before and after pictures and also list the prices involved.

The people I have spoken to so far about have said they thought the whole process would be much more expensive and time consuming. When really its not. To give a brief overview of the process. Pick a worktop from our Omega our Prima range, call us and arrange a time for us to come and measure up. We then come and fit the Worktops in just one day. Take a look at our Kitchen Worktop Replacements case study to see pictures and get more of an idea of price.

Let me know what you think.
