Niagara Conservation’s new Stealth toilet is the first and only toilet available with the ability to achieve a powerful, quiet flush using just 0.8 gallons of water. That’s pretty remarkable considering that most current single flush toilets use 1.6 gallons per flush and older style models flush 3.5 gallons. That adds up to impressive savings

Spring into Action

This time of year is a time for change. Change of weather, change of style and change of habit. Or would that be habitat? These times should be spent not just cleaning the house from top to bottom, but enjoying the new fashions, trends, styles and colours that come out of hibernation.
Your home could be the most important thing to you so why not get a change of style throughout your abode to give a sense of change and new beginnings for the year ahead. After all, you only have to change the main accessories to alter the design and look of a home; it’s not about gutting the decor.

A perfect start would be a new spring bedroom refreshment. Nothing is more comforting than getting into a freshly made bed at the end of the night and waking up to stylish but comfortable bed linen. Secondly, get a set of fresh towels in. Who knows how dirty those old ones are and you’d feel like the baby from the Fairy advert after changing.
Why stop there? Why not spoil yourself with a matching dressing gown, pillow cases, hand towels, flannels or blankets etc? All these things are in your comfort zone and should be quality. If not, then they make brilliant gift ideas for birthday celebrations or even as wedding gifts and anniversary gifts

Ice is Nice

What would the likes of the middle classes do without ice in their drinks? THE most important ingredient, some would argue, is that frozen lump of H2O that chills our drinks and dilutes the ‘nasties.’ I would agree on the majority and hope you would too.

One way to help this process is purchasing yourself what we call in the human world, an ice bucket, believe it or not. Those wondrously practical and smartly dressed items that bring joy and life to the fulfilments of each and every ice cube. Without it, your summer period would almost be catastrophic if, for instance, you were entertaining the folks and the weather, though it being the positive thing brought a downer on the beverages.

And of course one wouldn’t leave without its sister, the wine bottle cooler. Fantastically crafted pieces of engineering that allow you to enjoy the experience of dining from the table instead of going backwards and forwards from the fridge to the dining room. Of course they come in all shapes and sizes so make sure you pick the right one to go with not only decor, but also the occasion. One wouldn’t want to end up getting a simple practical piece, when one was trying to impress at a formal garden dinner party, would one? Go for the more elegant, dramatic and swirly types. Give your party a sense of class by trying these out.

Lastly, by showing these accessories off, it gives the impression that you do actually care about your guests needs because you’ve taken that extra step towards pre-empting what they’re going to want.

It’s a Large World After All

Does anyone remember that children’s series, ‘The Borrowers?’ What an amazing programme. I used to think it would be the most wonderful adventure to be a really tiny person and making ends meet by trying to build a house from giant things!

Then I came across a website that does large cotton spool tablesand I whizzed back to my childhood. What a fantastic product! They seem like they would be suitable for a kids bedroom or for a toy nursery but if you’re a big kid like me then I’m sure the more stylish versions would suit either the budding seamstress or certainly someone with a BIG imagination.

There is nothing in the world more comforting than seeing an everyday inanimate object blown up to the size of something out of ‘Honey I Shrunk the Kids.’ And as well as that these things are fashionable, come in colours and shades and the versatility of using them either as side tables, bed tables, chairs or even just as decorative pieces to enhance the quality of your home. Not only do they add volume and decor to the room but also are useful for placing important items that one may need before going to bed – e.g. medicines, torch, phone charger, glasses, table clock, table lamp etc.
