Bathroom Remodeling Ideas for Your New House

The Stress-free Guide to Bathroom Remodeling

You are finally moving into your new house! Congratulations on achieving the dream of homeownership. Now that you have this beautiful place to call your own, it’s time to think about what needs to be done in order for it to feel like home. A great way to do this is by remodeling the bathroom.

There are so many options available when it comes to bath remodel – from tile and paint-color choices, fixtures, countertops, sinks, and more – but one thing is certain: there are no bad choices when it comes t updating a space that will see plenty of use over the years.

Bath Remodel

Also, remember that you don’t have to spend a lot of money on your bathroom remodeling ideas. There are many ways to get the look and feel you want without spending thousands of dollars – no matter what your budget is!

For example, a few nice paint color choices could totally update a bathroom. If you have plain white tiles, painting them to match the wall or another accent color can make a big difference for very little money and effort.

Or maybe you want something more dramatic? Switching out your old bathtub with a walk-in shower is an easy way to increase floor space in what may be one of the smallest rooms in the home – not to mention giving it that spa feel!

Another possibility is new countertops. Elegant new bathroom vanity with a marble top will be the focal point of any room, while also giving you plenty of storage space for toiletries and towels. And if that sounds too expensive or not your style, then consider some other options like wood cabinets – again painting them to match the wall color would help blend them into their surroundings – or even just replacing old laminate counters with something more modern looking could make all the difference in updating an older-style bathroom without spending thousands on it!

How to Write The Perfect Prospecting Letter

Tips From Professionals

Prospecting letters are a great way to establish contact with potential customers and create new leads. However, the problem is that many people don’t know how to write them! In this blog post, we’ll explore what makes for a perfect prospecting letter. We will also provide you with an example of one so that you can see the exact format you should be using when creating yours.

The first thing that you need in a prospecting letter is the right words.

Prospecting Letters

In order to get your prospects attention, here are some things that you can include:

– Use strong persuasive language. Write openings such as “Now”, or “As soon as possible”. This will grab their attention and make them want to read more!

– Add numbers when writing about how many people would benefit from reading the information contained within your email. For example, write something like “This affects millions of Americans” instead of simply saying it impacts everyone.”

– Be descriptive with adjectives and adverbs – but don’t overdo it!!! You should paint mental pictures for prospective customers using phrases likes these: red hot deals, edge technology etc… But be sure to not go overboard, otherwise your prospects will simply become annoyed.

– Remember that a good prospecting letter should answer the question “What’s in it for me?”. This is why you need to offer information about how an email recipient would benefit by reading what you have written. For example, if you are offering tips on saving money while shopping online write something like…if people follow these simple steps they could save $500 every year! Not only is this more likely to get someone’s attention but also gives them value right away! So remember – when writing your own prospecting letters include language that grabs their attention and offers potential customers personal benefits based on their interests or concerns.

Kiwanis Club of Olds – Helping Children in Need

A Family Playing GolfThe old adage “it takes a village” is being taken literally by members of the Kiwanis Club of Olds as they work to build a new home for the Children’s Aid Society and its associated programs. The club recently signed a deal with The City of Olds to purchase the former “All Seasons Market” site – located at 5116-50 Avenue – and immediately set about raising funds for renovations to convert it into their own version of Daniel’s Den, an after-school program offering care and supervision for school children while parents are working or pursuing other activities. Organizers say the program will be built in such a way that it can eventually accommodate space for other community organizations with similar child-serving mandates.

“We’re hoping to provide a broad range of services,” says local Kiwanis member and project manager, Bernie Smith, noting that members hope to reach out into the community and encourage everyone from parents and grandparents all the way down to preschool children, “to come together and help us build this.” The new facility is expected to open its doors by next September, where it will eventually offer programs including homework assistance; sports; arts & crafts; games; field trips; computer instruction; language development (English/French); cooking classes; music lessons…and more!

Children’s Aid Society currently operates programs from an adjacent building on 50 Avenue as well as from a location in Airdrie. In addition to providing supervision for children, they also offer a number of other services, including:

– kindergarten/daycare program for those whose families cannot afford or otherwise obtain suitable care;

– Family Resource Center offering parenting classes and child development skill training to low-income parents;

– “Kiddie Kampus” – a full-day camp for school-age children who would otherwise be at risk of not going to summer camp if their families cannot provide transportation or financial support; and,

Man in Gray Sweater Sitting Beside Woman in Orange Shirt– Christmas Angel Tree program through which gifts are provided by individuals, groups, and businesses up until the last hour before Christmas Day when they will be delivered to the homes of children selected from CAS client lists.

Representatives from CAS say they are very excited about this new development and its potential for helping more families in need. “This is a fantastic opportunity,” says General Manager, Janice Burnett, adding that she believes the new location will open up a greater diversity of program opportunities, including activities aimed specifically at preschoolers who will be able to take advantage of a safe space to play and learn while their parents/guardians are occupied elsewhere in the building.

“We’re hoping that school-age kids will come after school or even just before supper time when their parents are still working,” said Smith, noting that many members of the community have already expressed an interest in donating items to furnishings both the interior and exterior of the building.

“To get this off to a good start, we’re really trying to get the community involved,” he said, adding that his team is already working on plans for an official Hygiene Day to coincide with ‘Clean Up Canada Day’ (March 3). “We want to get everyone out there picking up garbage because what better way to help your community than by keeping it clean even while you’re doing something good for the environment.”
