Zone 3: Bathroom and an Extra Room

This week we are focusing on the main bathroom and one extra room. The extra room may be a second, or third bathroom, a guest bedroom, a child’s bedroom, the office, or maybe the laundry room. Just pick one extra room and focus on it this week.

The bathroom: Do you live in fear that someone will actually see your bathroom? It is too easy to close our eyes to the mess that is hiding right behind the bathroom door. This week, we are going to open that door to the bathroom, and BabyStep, by BabyStep, we are going to conquer the CHAOS that is the main bathroom!

Your bathroom should give you sense of relaxation and joy when you enter. This is a place for you to pamper and take care of yourself. Treat the room with love and respect and it will bless you with comfort and peace.

Marketing Kitchen

A note from Audrey:

In 1999 I had the good fortune to join The FSA Group, a company founded by my brother Rob van Velzen and I immediately fell in love with the print, fulfillment and direct mail business. What I enjoyed most of all was working closely with clients and helping them succeed by providing services they needed. I learned early on that if you do excellent work and provide clients with exceptional service, you can forge a lasting relationship that benefits everyone. In 2011, in the prime of his life, Rob had to sell FSA after being diagnosed with cancer. I was fortunate to have had so many amazing years working alongside such a great visionary and leader.

I opened Marketing Kitchen in the Spring of 2014 as a I knew that a smaller more entrepreneurial environment is where I thrived. In the final stages of launching the

5 Tips for Choosing the Right Bathroom Tile

Inside: Learn some easy ways to narrow your choices with these 5 tips for choosing the right bathroom tile for anything from kid bathrooms to your master bathroom.

Lately I’ve been up to my ears in choosing bathroom tile. We’re smack in the middle of renovating the kids bathroom and I’ve also been helping my aunt who’s completely renovating all three of her bathrooms at (almost) the same time.

That means that in the last few months I’ve selected tile for 4 bathrooms. One in my own home and three in my aunt’s home. Selecting tile for someone else has taught me a lot about how to explain how to select tile for your bathroom.  I’ve come up with 5 tips for choosing the perfect tile that I hope will help you if you ever decide to tackle your bathroom.

It’s important not to force a completely unrelated style on your home, but the right exterior enhancements can significantly improve your home’s curb appeal.

1. Add a covered entrance. A bit of cover overhead is welcome when you’re trying to get in the door in a rainstorm, but even more important for our purposes, a covered entrance can do wonders for a home’s curb appeal.

28 outdoor projects everyone should know about
