Warm Up to Towel Warmers

From U.K. to U.S.

Towel warmers have been popular for years in Europe and are becoming the new craze in the U.S. The affordable price and versatility is breaking the heating rack's mold of being an expensive towel heating accessory only in day spas and five star hotels. Towel warmers are available as low as $39.00 in multiple finishes that compliment both taste and budget. You’re able to live a little like the rich and famous without emptying the wallet.

Not just for Towels

Towel warmers are not strictly for towels. Easily install one in the laundry room and throw out those bulky drying racks. They’re ideal for quickly drying delicate clothing, damp mittens, and wet swim suits while reducing mildew growth. Warm your sweaters, the baby’s blanket, kid’s jackets, and many more garments.

Bring it outdoors

Hot tubs and pools are relaxing while you’re in them, but why freeze when you get out? A heated towel reduces the dread of exiting. With portable, floor mounted, and wall mounted warmers, they’re adaptable to fit almost any space and environment. A warm towel is the perfect complement to a hot tub.

Gift Giving

You’ll be praised for the amount of thought put into your towel warmer gifts. They make a great housing warming and baby or bridal shower gift. Really warm other’s hearts by ordering embroidered monogram towels to go with it. It’s never too early to start thinking about holiday shopping.

How to Create A Fun Kid's Bathroom

It is time to get creative! I know it is hard to find time to do home projects when you have children; but decorating your child's bathroom is different. This is a chance for you to get them involved in your activities and give them a chance to express their creative side. Now, I only suggest that you decorate a child's bathroom if you plan on living in your home for many years and if you plan on having more children who could use the bathroom. We all know children grow up so fast and their styles are going to change; so don't go to all the trouble of re-decorating if it will only last a few years.

You want to make sure you incorporate bright colors and fun touches into your bathroom but also keep it functional and easy for your child to keep clean and tidy. If you don't know where to start; I suggest Home Depot or Lowe's. They offer lots of decorating idea books. Once you have narrowed your decision to 2 or 3 bathrooms; let your child choose which one they would like to have. You can then go pick out your stencils and borders and also your choice of paint. If you want an underwater theme then turquoise would be your best bet. If you are looking for a jungle theme then a light green would be perfect. Beach theme would require light blue, sea green, or sandy beige colors. However, if your bathroom adjoins a bedroom you want to continue with the same color pattern.

If your shower door is glass (which I wouldn't suggest with a young child) you can pep it up with vinyl decals or have your child create their own stickies with a craft kit. You can also have them paint tiles with non-washable paint and incorporate it into the tile design behind the sink or in the shower. There is also something called giant removable wall stickers from Presto Chango Decor. These are great if you are thinking about changing your decor around a lot. If you let them join in the decorating process they will be proud that they helped to decorate their very own bathroom. For safety concerns you want to make sure that the rubber mat on the bottom of your tub has traction so they won't slip when they get into the tub. We suggest making it a bright color so it will draw their attention. Also if you have a mat on the outside of the shower make sure it has non slip backing and big knobby hooks for hanging robes and towels are more suitable than ones with sharp edges.In addition, if you are going to use a step stool for your children to reach the sink make sure it has non-skid rubber footings. If your looking for any other products to keep your children safe; go here. If you follow these suggestions; hopefully you can create a truly magical and wonderful place for your child!

Not Just Tubs and Bath

I know our name is called Vintage Tub and Bath. But we offer many other products that are not at all related to kitchens or bathrooms. We just thought the name Vintage Tub and Bath and Miscellaneous Items was way to long of a title. (hahaha) So this blog is going to be dedicated to those items that get left behind. I hope you are surprised and maybe even find something that you like.

Under our Home and Garden section of our website you will be able to find many different items. Most of these items deal with the outside of your home. Here at Vintage we are offering you the complete house re-model because we will put the finishing touches on both the inside and outside of your home. Some of the products we offer are: outdoor fountains, firepits, weather stations and thermometers, planters, and candle holders. Alot of the candle holders are really beautiful and have that old world charm that is commonly associated with vintage style.

However, we are going to focus on one particular product. And that is the jewelry box. I know you are probably asking yourself what does that have to do with bathrooms? Well, it doesn't and that is why it is so cool that we offer them; because it is an unexpected product and shows that we really can think outside of the box in what we offer our customers. These jewelry boxes really are beautiful. My favorite is the dual swinging jewelry box. This is made of a solid wood walnut finish. It has five drawers and ten swinging compartments.

If this product is a little large for you try the square jewelry box. It is made of a solid wood gloss walnut finish and has four felt lined compartments and one ring compartment in a sliding tray.

We even get really creative in what we can offer our younger audience. We offer a pink heart faux leather jewelry box and also a red lips leather case jewelry box.
You can also purchase a wood wristwatch with glass lid and a wooden pen display box with drawer. (I told you we offer a lot of different products)

Hopefully you can find something you enjoy!
