Bathroom Remodel Design That is Safe For Children

If the time has come to work on bathroom remodeling Raleigh has plenty of avenues to explore. If you have children or are expecting a child, you might feel limited as to what you can do. You will want to design a child-safe bathroom without taking away from the decorative elements you want to include. The good news is that you can easily do both. Here are a few tips to help your bathroom remodeling Raleigh project stay child-friendly.

Floor Finish

When you look into flooring, you will want to avoid any floors that have a high-gloss finish. These floors can be very slippery for wet children coming in and out of the tub. Instead, choose a floor like ceramic tile that has a matte finish and buy decorative rugs to go down on top of it around the tub for added safety.

Tumblers

If you want to have a few decorations on the sink, choose tumblers for drinks and brushing your teeth. You will want them to be nonbreakable in case your child ever gets a hold of one and drops it. There are plenty of classic designs that can fit into any bathroom and there are also more specialized options.

Grab Bars

You will want to install some grab bars in the bathtub or shower so your children can use them to get in and out without slipping. Luckily, grab bars come in a number of different colors and styles so you should be able to find some that blend in with your overall decor.

Towel Bars

You can choose any towel bars, but you will want to locate them very close to the shower or tub so kids do not have to reach very far outside to gain access to a towel. Design the room around the idea that the bar needs to be very close to the tub.

Cushions

If you have a young child, add cushions to the design of the room. You will want to have cushions around the tub spout and around any cabinets that have sharp edges. This can prevent head injuries that are prevalent with young children.

You do not have to take anything away from your overall design in order to make your bathroom remodeling Raleigh EZ Pro Baths more child-friendly. Just put a little extra thought into safety features and add a few things and you should be set.

4 Steps to Releasing the Tension in Garage Door Service

Now that the tension spring has had the tension release and before we can start the garage door installation, make sure to disconnect the garage door opener from the door. The next step, starting from the top, is to remove the hinge screws. Once the screws from the topmost panel are removed simply slide the panel out. Repeat until all the panels are done.

Step 3
To start the actual installation, we are going to work backwards from the previous steps. Stack the door panels in front of the door and screw the hinges on between each successive panel. When you reach the top expect to see the garage door extend an inch or two above the opening. This is to keep the weather out.

Step 4
Now slide the wheels in to the side hinges then into the track. In a garage door installation, the need to be fairly precise is very important. At this point install the brackets to the rails per the manufacturer’s instructions. The last step is to attach the cable to the bottom panel, there should be a little hook for it to connect during the garage door service

Step 5
Assemble the spring assembly per the manufacturer’s instruction and connect to the straight rail. Refer to the manufacturer’s instruction manual to ensure that it is in the right location. Next, connect the curved part of the track to the ceiling. It is probably easiest to use the previous door’s location. Once that end is secure, join the curved part to the vertical track. Again, when performing a garage door installation, being fairly precise in putting it all together is important.
