Home & Garden

The bathroom is a very important part of one’s home. It is a safe space where you can refresh after a long day at work, relax and enjoy peaceful moments of solitude after stressful times or embrace your singing talent. Having a large, spacious bathroom is on the wish list of many home owners, but there are ways in which even a small bathroom can become a lovely, enjoyable and practical place. Follow these simple tips to get the most out of your small bathroom.

Fire pits are a great way for outdoorsy people to get more use out of their backyard during the colder months.

You'll need to measure the height and length of your bicycle too and take into consideration the accessories that come with it. Usually if you have only one bike, you'll need a shed that's about 1.8 m long and about 60 cm wide. 2 bikes will require a shed of the same length and width of 90 cm. Just add about 30 cm of width for every bike.
