Bathroom renovation story of every house

It was a space reserved for domestic workers, located on the top floor of an old building in Ostend. Small windows, dark rooms, completely obsolete. Until Iris and her companion stumble upon it… With their architect, they drew up Bathroom renovation plans. And for the bathroom, they trusted Van Marcke.“The location was fantastic, as for the apartment it had huge potential,”

“This is an old apartment building with a wide facade and sea view. When we bought, we knew what we were getting into: there was going to be quite a bit of demolition work. The many walls and small windows had to disappear to be replaced by a large sliding glass door down to the floor, in order to offer a magnificent view of the sea. "Advice for interior design and installer: the Van Marcke touch

“I took my Bathroom renovation plans under my arm and went to a Van Marcke Inspirations showroom. I knew what I wanted - a walk-in shower and a long, narrow cabinet - but that didn't stop an inside advisor from helping me finalize the product selection. The maintenance aspect was important to me, so I inquired about it at length. "

“The installer recommended by Van Marcke first came to take all the final measurements. This is a very important moment, because like this, you can be sure that everything will fit perfectly into your bathroom space. Imagine, for example, the shower tray: the installer knows the dimensions he can have and takes into account the loss of space due to the tiling of the walls. It checks the space available for the drain pipes. So many intermediate steps, but essential. "

The renovation

Iris: “The toilet was not in the Bathroom renovation and we didn't change anything. Merging the two rooms would have been a solution, it would have created a larger space. But when a lot of people come to stay in the apartment, it is convenient to have a toilet separate from the bathroom. A challenge because the dimensions of the latter are very small, barely 2.35 m by 1.57 m. We removed the tub and replaced it with a walk-in shower. There is also a cabinet with a sink and a cabinet with a mirror. "
What should you pay particular attention to when renovating a small bathroom? “Make sure the glass wall of your walk-in shower is long enough that your bathroom doesn't get flooded every time you shower. Keep enough space between the glass wall and your sink cabinet. Otherwise, cleaning your wall will be very difficult there. "

Metal roof restoration

What does metal roof restoration consist of? When a ceiling is very deteriorated and has lost its luminosity, aesthetics and hygiene properties, a cleaning, no matter how deep, is not enough to get the ceiling of your company to be like new and therefore it is required a specific treatment that recovers it.  During metal roof restoration, suitable resins for this type of ceiling are micro-sprayed that aesthetically equalize the false ceiling and eliminate all the grease, carbon monoxide, nicotines, bacteria and fungi that may have adhered to the ceiling.  The  result is spectacular  and the client is  as if he were re-releasing his roof but for a much lower price than  the one that would mean replacing all the metal plates.  A company may need metal roof restoration both if it has not carried out professional ceiling cleaning for years or if cleaning has been carried out but in an inadequate way, since to preserve the characteristics of the metal roof it is necessary to use produc

Business accounts yourself is easy, I thought.

I used to think that really: bookkeeping is easy. You enter an amount on the left, an equal amount on the right and if the amounts at the bottom of the line are the same, everything is okay. This thought remained until I started working with an Business accounts package. Different booking rules had to be created per event. And for some reason, accounting packages are ready to support any multinational, but it is far too complex for an average self-employed person. Curious as I am, I started researching why accounting is so difficult. The reason was quickly found. Traditional accounting, or the 'double accounting method', dates from the 15th century. Conceived by the Italian monk Luca Pacioli. In those days, bookkeeping was still a quill pen. Then it was useful to work with diaries, journal entries and ledgers. With the double accounting method you can spot errors and check the books afterwards. A nice system for that time. With the introduction of the computer, the unfortunate
