Tips to Prepare for a Camping Trip

The great outdoors beckons many families when vacation time comes around.  Without access to television and computers, camping provides a great environment for families to spend some quality time together.

Perhaps this is your first time camping.  Maybe you aren’t camping but roughing it away from the comfort of your own home, in a cottage or RV.  If so, you’ll want to prepare for your next trip to get the most enjoyment out of your vacation.

Here are some great tips to help make your next camping trip more enjoyable:

Sleeping

If you’re using a tent, make sure you have everything needed for assembly.  This includes tent stakes and a hammer.  You will also need a tarp for added protection during the rainy season.  Bring your sleeping bags and comfortable pillows, too.

Eating

For your travels, pack food that you will prepare for meals, as well as snacks and plenty of water.  Insulated transport bags, food storage boxes, cooler boxes and film wrappers will all help you make sure you have the freshest food available.

Pack cooking equipment and utensils such as a camping stove, pots, pans, dishes, cups, silverware, spatulas, tongs, can openers and oven mitts.  Remember to include trash bags, dish towels and dish washing liquid for clean-up.

Lighting

If you’re going somewhere with reliable sunshine during the day, a good idea would be to bring solar powered lights so you don’t need to think about powering them.  Also, bring handheld flashlights and extra batteries.

Pest Control

Insect repelent, fly swatters and a bug zapper can help keep your camp insect-free.

Emergencies

When you’re out in the wilderness, it’s not easy to get medical attention quickly.  Thus, a first aid kit is absolutely essential to have everything you need for most injuries.

Don’t Forget the Fun!

If you like mountain biking just pick up a bike carrier and you’re all set.  Grab a heavy duty raft for the entire family if everyone is in for some white water rafting.  Just because you’re roughing it outdoors, doesn’t mean you have to leave all your toys at home!

Hiking Safety Tips and Essential Items to Take on Your Trip

When the weather is nice, a hike into the countryside is a perfect way to find peace, relaxation and a taste of the natural world.  It’s also excellent exercise, and burns lots of calories while filling your lungs with fresh air.

hiking5

When preparing for a hike, it can be tempting to pack lots of supplies.  Remember though, that you’ll have to carry everything on your back, which can weigh you down and tire you out quickly.  Also, you’ll be walking on uneven surfaces, which can make it more of a physical challenge.  Thus, it is important to pack the essentials before choosing to bring any optional equipment.

Essential Items

Water:  Get the largest water bottle you can find.  Lugging it up a mountain is hard, but struggling through a hike while dehydrated is dangerous.

hiking1   SKU# D1143278

First Aid:  Hiking done right shouldn’t be a dangerous activity, but things can go wrong for anyone at any time.  Have a first aid kit on hand, and add anything to it that you require (e.g. epinephrine, medications, etc.)

hiking2     SKU# D1150858

GPS:  Deelat offers GPS watches that can pinpoint your location. The watches are waterproof and are powered using a rechargeable battery.  Having a physical map is also a good idea.

hiking3         SKU #D1150853

Food:  If you are going on an all-day hike, you’ll need to eat to help replenish your energy.  Film-wrapped sandwiches, granola bars, veggies and fruit are a good choice. You can also fill storage containers and insulated transport bags with food as well.

Other Tips:

Leave your itinerary with a friend or family member and check in with them upon your return.

Develop an emergency plan before you start your trip and make sure everyone in your party knows what to do if there is a medical emergency.

An all-day hike is not suitable for the first time hiker or someone who is not in the greatest of shape.

To minimize your chance of injury or problems such as leg cramps, drink water and stretch before beginning your hike.

Once your hike is complete, be sure to drink plenty of water to rehydrate and stretch as soon as possible to speed up your recovery.

Kitchen Renovation Ideas and Tips

Kitchens need to serve the dual purpose of both food production and comfort, particularly in smaller homes where there may not be many other communal rooms.

If you happen to be thinking of renovating your kitchen, integrate these thoughtful tips to create a space that is functional and easy to work and live in.

kitchen 7

Give Yourself Some Room

The kitchen is a high traffic area, so get the layout right.  Paths throughout a kitchen should be at least 36 inches wide.  Paths within the cooking zone should be 42 inches wide for a one-cook kitchen and 48 inches wide for a two-cook configuration.  Keep the stovetop out of busy areas so that people don’t bump into boiling pots.  Conversely, put the refrigerator in a place where both the cooks and the bystanders can reach for a cold one.

Another thing that needs the right layout is your sink.  Do you want a single or a double?  Make sure you set it at an appropriate height based on what is comfortable for you.

kitchen 6

Arrange the Range

With a shelf placed behind or beside the range, you can keep all of your cooking oils, utensils, and spices nearby and organized.  Place hooks on the side of the range hood to hang frequently used pots and pans.

kitchen 5

Clear a Space

Do you really want your microwave on the counter top, taking up space and requiring you to bend over to look inside?  Free up that space with a dedicated shelf for the microwave.  Consider the appliances you want on the counter top and give them plenty of room so that they may be used appropriately.  Now is the time to set up a proper place for that steam espresso machine, if that’s your thing.

kitchen 2  SKU #D1158932

Match Colors

Make it look like you put some thought into the details.  If red accent walls are popular, why not tie that in with your appliances?  You might be able to find a blender, a juicer, a toaster, a swift chopper and a meat grinder all in the same shade of red!

kitchen 3SKU ##D1147331

Get the Experts In!

Kitchens are too important to get wrong.  If you end up with a kitchen renovation disaster because you haven’t consulted any planners or designers or have attempted to do it all yourself without the right expertise or tools, you’ll get bored of take-out very quickly. So make sure you at least run your ideas past someone who knows what they’re talking about.

Advantages of Using HVAC Products in Your Home or Business

The most important benefit of using HVAC products in your business is pretty obvious … you create a pleasant working environment for your customers and staff!  Ideally, your HVAC equipment should keep you warm in winter, cool in the summer and breathing fresh air all year long.  Aside from the big items, like furnaces and packaged air conditioners, the scope of HVAC equipment available to you is very wide ranging.

Below are some examples of HVAC equipment and their advantages for your business:

Portable Air Conditioning Units:  If you live in a temperate location that doesn’t require installed air conditioning, you may still need to cool down occasionally.  A portable unit allows you to do so when required, wherever you need it.

Fans:  If air conditioning isn’t something that you are going to need on a regular basis, make sure your workplace has enough fans to offer a cool draft to make the heat less of a problem. There are fans of all shapes and sizes to fit your needs, including some industrial-sized blowers if required.

HVAC3

HVAC4SKU# D1143670

 

Air Ducts:  A ventilation air duct is a conduit or passage that is used to deliver or remove air, generally with the end goal of ensuring that the air quality is at acceptable levels.  A fan can be used in conjunction with ducts to move air over a longer distance with precision.  Air ducts are used in various industrial applications, including mining and hazardous environments.  Furthermore, they may be necessary for storage spaces to regulate air flow and humidity.

HVAC6SKU #D1146683

Air Curtains:  Air curtains deliver a continuous stream of downward air over a doorway.  The airstream prevents non-conditioned exterior air, as well as bugs, dust and fumes, from entering your space.

HVAC7

 

Air Purifiers:  You may not suffer from allergies, but some of your employees and customers might.  An air purifier’s filter ensures that they can breathe cleaner and purer air.  Several units are available that are suited for rooms of different sizes, and many models are portable.

Bathroom Renovation Ideas and Tips

Your bathroom is one of the most important rooms in your home.  It should have the look and feel you desire so that you can feel pampered and comfortable.

When it comes to renovating your bathroom, you need to take great care and consideration not only for the aesthetics but also the practical elements.  It is challenging to do a bathroom renovation yourself, but it is by no means impossible.

Below are some of our ideas and tips for bathroom renovation projects:

1.) Check into the standard measurements for bathroom fixtures and make sure you have enough space.  For example, you need a minimum of 30 inches of width to accommodate a toilet, a fact that you cannot work around no matter how handy you are.  Similarly, tubs, showers and sinks require adequate space.

bathroom5

2.) Don’t make the toilet the first thing you see when you open the door.  Generally it’s advised that you shouldn’t be able to see the toilet when the door is open because it’s not the first thing your guests should see when they walk past your bathroom.

3.) You have many options regarding sinks in terms of design and style.  Double sinks are what you want if it is a shared bathroom.  If the bathroom has a small space, you can use a corner sink to avoid crowding an entry door or shower door when it swings open.  And if storage space is the problem, look into floating vanities.

bathroom 1 SKU #D1150425

4.) Treat yourself to a good shower unit.  If you need to reduce your stress at the end of the day, forget about a simple shower head and hand shower.  Instead, put in a shower panel with massage jets — the added expense is worth it.

5.) Go the extra mile if you can.  If you’re planning to install a shower panel with massage jets, why not upgrade to a computerized curved steam shower unit or a steam room or sauna?  Many of these units are slide-in-place models that are easy to install.

6.) Splurge on high-end materials.  Are you hesitant to put money into your bathroom?  Don’t be.  Because it is a small space, the cost to put in better flooring could be within your budget.  The investment is smart; your bathroom will look more luxurious to guests and future home buyers.
