Remodeled Kitchen and Common Areas

kitchen-sinks-and-faucets-4We cannot live without a kitchen in our homes, restaurants, hotels, clubs, or resorts. Apart from smart kitchen ideas we stumble on the internet every day, the most important aspect is the essential things required in that space. Of course, we may equip everything from fridges, wine coolers, cookers, to modern shelves and cabinets, but we must have a faucet and a disposal to make the room complete. Whether for a commercial or residential, a remodeled kitchen deserves new faucets and disposals to make the life easier and comfortable while working from there.

Kitchen Faucets Options to Choose From

Single handled kitchen faucets

Single handled models use one handle to regulate temperature and water flow, making them easy and efficient to use by many people. These models have an ideal arch design that is convenient even when washing bigger dishes and pots. Interestingly, only one hole is needed in the countertop. The handle is turned up and down when controlling water flow, allowing the user to have a suitable amount of water to clean utensils. To control the temperature, you can tilt the handle side to side.

Double handled kitchen faucets

Many contemporary kitchens have double handled faucets as they are more sensitive when it comes to temperature and water flow regulation. This is facilitated by the availability of two cold and hot water controls. Sometimes one control may start leaking, and the user can comfortably use the other control before fixing the damaged one. The faucet comes with the handles, but there are spares for both the faucet and the handle. This means that the user will not incur huge costs of replacing the entire unit. In addition, you can as well change the style of the faucet without interfering with the handles. Even though the installation requires three holes in the countertop, these double-handled faucets are great for any kitchen remodeling work.

Hand-free kitchen faucets

As the name suggests, no handle required for controlling the temperature and water flow. Instead, a sensor is used to detect motion or contact and then a valve opens. No manual rotation of a handle is needed here. Opening and shutting are automatic, hence more precise for water conservation purposes. The sensor uses batteries, which should be replaced once they dry out. However, the batteries can serve for a relatively longer time before replacement is needed.

Kitchen Garbage Disposal and How to Use It Appropriately

There are many types of garbage disposals in the market, and the new models are capable of grinding even soft bones and fruit peels. A garbage disposal is a useful tool to help you manage food wastes without carrying them to the garbage pit regularly. Also, it eliminates the issue of storing food wastes in a bin where flies and cockroaches may breed and encroach into the kitchen shelves. Despite the type of garbage disposal you buy, there are best practices to keep your unit functional for a longer time.

Therefore, the following are the ways to use your garbage disposal properly and increase its lifespan.

Run the appliance regularly

It does not need to be used only when grinding wastes. If no waste to grind, pour some water to flush out the little waste that could have been left previously. This will not only get rid of the awful smell from the appliance but also keeps the moving parts in good condition.

Rinse using cold water always

Always rinse the appliance with cold water. Do NOT use hot water. Cold water keeps the waste hardened unlike hot water, and therefore the blades can easily cut the materials. Hot water softens the waste, thus blades cannot chop them well. These can clog the system.

Cut the solids into smaller pieces before putting into the disposal

Food waste such as fruit peels should be reduced into smaller sizes before putting into the disposal. This will prevent jams within the blades. Also, don’t put hard things such as beef bones because they will damage the blades. However, some appliances may grind soft bones such as chicken and fish.

Use lemon or citrus water to clean

disposalEven though cold water is used to flush down the waste, little materials may be left behind. When they accumulate over time, a bad smell may start coming out of the disposal. Therefore, pouring some lemon water or citrus and flush out may help get rid of the bad odor.

Apart from the new facilities, conservation has been taken care of through installing WaterSense certified toilets. These water efficient toilets are essential because they limit wastage of water, and most of them have a rate of 1.28 gallons of water per flush.

Part of the Remodeling Work at the Facility

Even though the remodeling work is enormous, we have a few areas where many people may want to know. It is not all about the newly designed walls and comfortable seating. The members may still want to know the other areas such as toilets and bathrooms, bearing in mind that these are highly sensitive places in every facility. No one would like to spend time in an unpleasant washroom! However, at Bird Strike Canada the facility has gone beyond your expectations with their selective remodeling ideas.

The washrooms are characterized by the modern toilets, bathrooms, sink faucets, wall tiles, lighting, and the showerheads. No one will let down a relaxing shower, and this is offered by the roomy bathrooms plus the new showerheads. The essence of this vast bathroom upgrading was to provide a similar home bathing experience. Corporate members deserve the highest satisfaction while at the facility, and therefore these modernized bathrooms are much welcoming and rewarding.

The refurbishment does not end there. The tiles are installed right from the floor up to the walls. Interestingly, the painting is a non-issue because the bathroom lighting is sufficient and matches with the entire space. The sinks are stainless steel plus the stainless steel faucets. These faucets offer adequate washing space around the countertops, while the water flow and temperature controls are single levers making them suitable for all users.

The toilets are wisely selected from the top best toilet brands in the world. This is to ensure durability and efficiency, as well as comfort to the users. No straining to flush down the waste, whether solid or liquid. Just a single flush is enough to push down all waste and leaves the toilet bowl as clean as a brand new. In addition, every user is taken care of. Whether tall or short, the height of the toilets is universal to offer the best experience to every user.

Due to the use of designer toilets and showerheads among other fixtures, the facility now speaks on its own. Everyone can appreciate the remodeling work, and probably the members will have the best moments while undertaking their events there.

New Shower Facilities – Bird Strike Canada

showerTaking a relaxing shower can help you refresh your body and prepare for the next activity. Whether you are a corporate traveler or a visitor, shower facilities are very important to kick-start your day while feeling rejuvenated. For those members that attend the regular bird strike conferences in Vancouver, your comfort at the campsite has been elevated with new shower facilities. To cater for all members, different types of showerheads have been fitted in various bathrooms. This is to improve shower experience and provide the members with the ultimate satisfaction they deserve. These showerheads have been selected from the quality and top selling brands in the world, and they come with a wide variety of benefits including enhanced class and style.

The single spray showerhead has not been left behind despite the fact that it is one of the basic models in the market. Since many people have used these options, the Bird Strike Canada decided to include a few single spray models to cater for those individuals that do not enjoy sophisticated facilities. Interestingly, the new versions have been fitted with an adjustable nozzle to regulate spray patterns based on what you want. They are perfect because the user can customize the shower according to the water spray he or she needs. For those that have been using these models in their homes, you will feel right at home because there is no disruptive change as far as shower experience is concerned.

In Vancouver, many people have been adopting modern and improved showerheads. For instance, the use of rain showerheads has been increasing among many homes and that is why the Bird Strike Canada has also incorporated these showerheads in its bathrooms. The models have the ability to splash a uniform amount of water spray over a larger surface area, making it perfect for everyone out there. As the name suggests, the water spray is just similar to that of rain that gives a more relaxing bath without unwelcoming water hit pressure on the body. These showerheads are not only fitted to offer a relaxing shower, but also to improve the visual impression of the entire bathroom. In other words, it makes a bathroom appear more stylish.

Our body sizes and heights are different, and this means we may need different kinds of showerheads. In addition, there are those people with back problems and probably they may not want to bend while taking a shower. Therefore, we included some few handheld showerheads to offer these individuals a final solution. The user can detach it from the wall and rinse those hard-to-reach areas without any need to move around or bend. Another advantage with the facility’s bathroom is that there are seated showers, and the handheld showerhead offers a perfect shower experience because you will rinse your body without turning about.

An ideal club or social facility with reliable shower facilities is likely to draw more and more members. For instance, a bird strike conference may take days and the members should not be subjected to harsh moments when it comes to bathroom affairs. The dual showerheads are generally designed for improved shower experience, and they come in two different options – attached showerhead and separated showerheads. For comfort and reliability, having both models with all features is an added advantage to the users. Some of the models have a single lever to control water flow, while others have a diverter valve to regulate the flow of water through a single showerhead. The essence is to offer maximum shower satisfaction to users, even though the showerheads may use a single spray or dual rain showerhead system.

shower 2Satisfaction matters. We are different when it comes to choosing showerheads. Some will prefer a single spray, dual rain models, or ceiling showerheads. The latter is installed on the ceiling so that water can drop directly in the form of rain. These types of showerheads can spread water spray over a large surface area, but ensuring very little water is splashed on the bathroom sides. These are ideal for a fast shower when you feel tired especially after a long hour meeting. In addition, it makes a bathroom look more stylish and modern. Therefore, the users can feel the sense of class and complexity.

At Bird Strike Canada, we considered the aspect of height. Of course, all bathrooms cannot be designed for specific individuals with certain heights. This is why we have the sliding bar showerheads. These are installed on an elastic bar which is then mounted onto the wall of the bathroom. A user will adjust the bar height based on his or her height.
