Learn to Blow Glass

Glass blowing is a wonderful hobby that results in some beautiful artwork for your home. My name is Natalie, and I started in glass blowing as a hobbyist, but now I teach classes in this skill. Some people think glass blowing is difficult or dangerous. That's not the case at all. As you build your skill level, you will find that you learn very quickly. In this blog, I will examine the misconceptions about glass blowing and teach you some of the techniques. I will also give you helpful tips about where to find a glass so you can practice this new skill yourself.

Building Your New Shower With Cleanliness In Mind


Building your own bathroom is a privilege being able to place everything just where you desire and being able to pick out all of the right materials means a more enjoyable bathroom space. Since bath time is a time to energize and relax at the same time, building your own tub and shower space means you get just the design that is right for you. Along with being a relaxing space that you like being in, you should also build a shower with cleanliness in mind. Here are some features to place in your shower so that it is easy to clean. 

Get frameless glass shower doors

A frameless shower means having a shower enclosure that is completely made of glass. The best thing about glass is that it is easy to clean. A glass cleaner mixed with water and a wipe down can keep your shower looking clean and new. Not having to worry about metal parts rusting or being able to get in the middle of corners will make your cleaning job easier. Get an after shower spray for your glass shower and spritz after you get out to keep the space clean. A frameless shower can be a tiny enclosed space or a wide, space that will hold several people. 

Install a rainfall shower

A rainfall shower operates different than a traditional shower, as the showerhead is in the very center of the space. Instead of being attached to one of the walls, you can attach a rainfall showerhead to the ceiling. Attach the rainfall showerhead to the ceiling and allow a little space so that it can be cleaned all over weekly. The water will stay mainly in the center of the shower. If the drain is also placed in the center of the shower, most water, hair, and debris will run down the drain quickly and will not pool in different areas of the shower. 

Put down wide tile

Rather than small tile that is only a few inches long and wide, put down wide panels of tile on your shower floor. The fewer spaces you have the less grime development that you will see inside of the shower. If you are able to place down flooring in one large tile piece, you will notice that the floors only require a small wipe down every few days rather than a deep scrubbing each week. Be sure that the floor has some texture so that the floors are harder to slip on.
