What room gets some of the most traffic in your home? The bathroom. It’s one of the most used places in any house by both residents and guests. Nowadays baths and showers are as well-decorated as any other room in the house. Many homeowners are making their bathroom stylish, and one common way of doing so is by installing a bathroom vanity.

A bathroom vanity comes in an endless variety of styles - single or double sink, traditional or on-trend, and so much more. Making a choice can be a very daunting task. If you can honestly answer the questions below, then you are on the right path a to installing bathroom vanity you will enjoy for a very long time.

What is your bathroom style?

The first thing to do when looking for a bathroom vanity is sorting out the kind of style you need. Do you want a sleek and minimalistic design or are you the type that is on the trend? You need to be clear on the kind of style or design you want if you want a bathroom vanity that you makes you happy.

How much space do you have?

Get a measuring tape and take note of the amount of space in your bathroom you will be working with. Consider the width and depth of your vanity top especially, it is vital. Your vanity drawers and cupboard should be easy to open, and there should be plenty of space to move around.

What are your needs?

Your bathroom vanity should be stylish as well meet all your needs. Plan your budget and know the cost. If your bathroom is likely to be for the whole family, you should consider an extra bench space and a double sink. Do you need sockets for handheld appliances in the cabinetry? If you have a young family, choose a material that is durable and easy to maintain.

Which material do you like?

The materials you will use for your bathroom vanity depends on your personal preference, your needs, and your budget. Stone top, marble, plastic, laminate, and timber are common materials for bathroom vanities. Stone tops have a long-life span; laminate is excellent for practicality while a timber vanity can offer a classic look.

Where would you place it?

Once you've chosen between a single or double basin, think about where to position your countertop. Your sink can be mounted on the wall, above the cupboard or placed as a stand-alone vessel. Remember to set your vanity where it will be most functional.

When you decide to make an offer on a home, your mind may be flooded with dozens of questions and concerns -- several of which may involve money matters, while others are about the condition of the house.

However, if you've had the house professionally inspected and made sure your income is sufficient to absorb monthly expenses, than you've already taken steps to prevent or at least minimize future challenges.

Since buying a home is such a big investment and there are so many emotional factors that could influence your decision, it's essential to stay focused, adhere to a budget, and be aware of what you need in order to be satisfied with your purchase.

The Financial Side of Things: Even though a mortgage broker or loan officer may approve you for a large mortgage, only you can determine whether you'd be comfortable making those monthly payments. In  addition to the cost of your mortgage, property taxes, and school taxes, there are also other expenses to consider and include in the equation. If you're moving into a larger house, for example, the cost of heating and/or cooling your home may be higher than you're used to. Poorly insulated houses can also have a negative impact on home energy costs.

Another key factor to think about when you're figuring out the affordability of a potential new home is property maintenance, the cost of HVAC service, and miscellaneous expenses, such as appliance repairs, plumbing leaks, and electrical services. Some neighborhoods, residential developments, and condos also require a monthly Homeowner Association (HOA) fee, which can potentially put a burden on your cash flow situation. A good rule of thumb, of course, is to avoid spending beyond your means. While nobody would dispute the logic of that advice, it's often a lot easier said than done -- especially on an ongoing, consistent basis.

Non-Financial Priorities: The only way to know what you truly want and need in a new home is to clarify your goals, requirements, and wishes. Making lists, discussing it with your partner, and visiting lots of homes for sale will help give you the ideas, the inspiration, and helpful points of comparison you need. Online real estate listings and home improvement websites can also provide a wealth of practical ideas.

In addition to having enough bedrooms and bathrooms to meet your family's needs, it's also important to feel comfortable with the quality of the school district, the amount of noise in the neighborhood, and the traffic level on nearby streets. Proximity to recreation, shopping, and other amenities can also make the difference between your ideal home and one which doesn't quite make the grade. Privacy (or the lack, thereof) is also a major issue which can impact your satisfaction with a real estate purchase. While it's good to approach home buying with a sense of optimism, the best time to weigh all the pros and cons is before you sign the final papers at the closing table!


New building methods increasingly improve insulation R-values inside homes, but as houses become more buttoned up, they also can trap lousy air inside. Your personal atmosphere might contain molds, formaldehyde, toxic chemicals from paints, carpets, glues, and cleaners, and benzene, just to name a few. On top of that, your indoor air carries pet dander, dust mites and other pollutants that can trigger asthma, allergies, and other respiratory illnesses, headaches, earaches, and digestive problems.

Clear the air with these oxygen-promoting houseplants.

  • Dracaena deremensis: requiring only a small amount of sunlight and very little water, this plant grows up to ten feet tall if left untrimmed. It effectively removes fumes from solvents and varnishes.
  • Dracaena Marginata: This lovely subtropical plant brings to mind a Dr. Seuss tree that filters chemicals from cigarettes, paints, and vehicle exhaust. It only requires a small amount of water when the soil dries out.
  • Golden Pothos: NASA studied this plant for its ability to remove formaldehyde and VOCs (volatile organic compounds such as those in paint fumes).
  • Hedera Helix: This English Ivy makes the perfect desktop plant and removes carcinogens from cigarettes and cigars. It adapts to a variety of light and temperature conditions, and when used in the bath or nursery, it can even remove fecal particulates.
  • Sansevieria Trifasciata: Also called Snake Plant and Mother-in-Law’s Tongue, releases oxygen as it absorbs carbon dioxide and makes an excellent filtering plant for formaldehyde from engineered wood products.
  • Spathiphyllum: Peace Lily controls acetone, benzene, trichloroethylene, and fumes from alcohols from the air inside your home. Since it’s toxic, however, keep this plant away from pets and children.
  • Chlorophytum comosum: The Spider Plant, also part of the NASA test, proved to be exemplary at removing formaldehyde from the air.

Plants move the toxins through their leaf-vein system and down into the roots where microbes feast on and filter the damaging fumes and turn them into harmless by-products. Each medium-sized plant covers about six to eight cubic feet according to some studies, although in real-world situations, that depends on how often HVAC systems exchange the air.

To get the best results, keep a variety of plants. Because most plant types prefer certain toxins over others, the more insulated your home, the more different fumes need filtering. As always, when using any plants near children or animals, keep them well out of reach.

To learn about which plant might grow best in your situation, talk to your local nursery or plant specialist.
