Nothing sets the tone of your bathroom like designer tiles. They look expensive, wear well and look fantastic. Especially if they complement the other fittings you have in the bathroom, such as the bathtub.

The only problem with going all out on designer wall tiles is, well they are expensive. Tiling the whole bathroom with designer tiles is going to cost you a lot of money.

If you’re tiling on a budget then you may be temped to simply make do with cheap economy tiles. This will accomplish one thing only. Your bathroom will look like it was put together on a budget. Poor tile choice can make or break the look you’re going for.

It doesn’t have to be this way though. With some cleaver purchases, some forward thinking, and a steady hand you can have a bathroom that screams opulence.


Rather than go all out when you tile your bathroom walls, instead make a feature of the tiling. This can complement or contrast the other painted walls. Still sound too expensive, then why not opt for a splash wall? You will only need to tile the bottom third, or possibly half of the wall in question. It will also cost significantly less than a whole wall.

Not tiling the whole bathroom will save on time and money. However it will still accomplish the designer feel you’re looking for. Just without the designer price tag.


When buying bathroom wall tiles, you don’t need every tile to be an expensive designer tile. Just as you have with the wall, make a feature of the designer tiles themself. You only need to buy a handful that can be used to create a repeating pattern, or a centrepiece for the remaining wall tiles.

The other tiles can be end of line, or reasonable economy tiles – though you still want a certain level of quality. The very cheapest tiles will not wear or age particularly well. Standard tiles should do the job nicely.

The designer tiles will draw the eye and make the whole feature look intentional. Saving you even more money, and giving your bathroom that designer chic you wanted.

How To Stay Away From Work From Home Cons?

If you’ve heard you can make a living by working from home, you haven’t heard wrong. But, if someone’s been telling you that you can make an insane amount of money sitting at home, I hope you are seeing red flags! The following is a list of some of the most obvious ones:

A free lunch or a heavily discounted one

Anyone who offers you a free lunch has an ulterior motive, for people trying to con you, it’s your money. Of course in order to lure you in, they dangle the carrot of hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars per month.

The question that I suggest you ask yourself is, -“Can I justify this amount with my skill set?” If not, you know it’s an offer that you either need to steer clear of or study in greater detail.

A Tangled Web They Weave

Any offer or opportunity that’s not straightforward and transparent reeks of a con. For example, sometime back there was this posting on a popular content writing job-site where the ‘client’ wanted writers, but would only pay them if their articles helped him generate a certain number of clicks. As a content writer, as long as you do your job well, you shouldn’t have to bother about how many clicks you content generates. That’s the client’s outlook. So, the best advice when it comes to opportunities like these is–stay away.

Pay me, before I pay you:

Once you have paid a con, you can kiss your money goodbye. Frankly, that’s what scammers aim for; they want you to shell out cash, before you get the time to really think about the offer. They will create a false sense of urgency, “buy now, or you’ll lose your chance”, “very few open slots left”, etc. etc. In fact this is one of the most common shams in the online work- from-home niche.

I have come across fake content writing a data entry offers, where the applicant is asked to pay a registration fee. Common sense dictates that if you do a job for someone you get paid, not vice versa.

Finally, the one factor that can help you spot a sham when you see one is your instinct. Any opportunity that makes you feel uncomfortable is worth digging deeper into.

The idea of earning money with minimal effort is tempting and often clouds our judgment. Cynical as it may sound, I have realized there is no such thing as ‘easy money’ when you are working from home. There is good money and a comfortable life definitely, but if you start hunting for ‘quick money’ or ‘instant cash’ schemes, you are most likely setting yourself up for being duped.

Work At Lifestyle Home Solutions – How Long Will It Take To See Success In A Traditional Home Based Business?

When it comes to finally enjoying success with a home based business you might have a few questions running through your head. For example, is this business right for me and how long will it take for me to see success as a new work from home consultant.

Before we tackle the first question let’s go ahead and see if we can knock out the second question of how long will it take for you to succeed as a new business owner. Naturally, the answer to that question lies in what you base your definition of success on or around.

For example, some consultants are content to make a few hundred extra dollars every month while others base their success on the number of new recruits they bring into their downline on a monthly basis. For the extremely motivated consultants nothing less than achieving the status or rank of a director or higher in their organization is their definition of success.

With all that said, only once you are able to accurately acknowledge and quantify what success means to you for your own home based business will you be able to comfortably identify how long it will take for you to enjoy your first success with the company you choose to join.

If your definition of success is monetarily based then once you have determined your magic number it simply becomes a matter of backwards planning in order to see how many sales you will need to make on a regular basis based on the company’s compensation plan.

As you would expect with so many home based business opportunities, network marketing companies and multi-level marketing businesses in existence there are a multitude of compensation plans out there with some designed to allow consultants to earn money quicker than others.

The very best compensation plans seem to cater around allowing its members the ability and opportunity to build a very steady and lucrative income with a strong cash flow stream with bonuses and other incentives sprinkled in the plan.

By now chances are good that you have an idea on what success means to you and how long it will take monetarily speaking to see some success. Of course, there is a slight catch because success comes with a price. You see, you will need to know, understand, visualize and plan what it is that you need to do in order to accomplish your goal.

Without a doubt there are ways to work smarter instead of harder but if you don’t plan for them then you might not achieve the success you desire or as fast as you thought. Once you know how to properly market and grow your business you will see success much faster than the traditional or average hoe based business owner.

Success in any home based business is attainable and you can get there with a little preparation, some hard work and helpful guidance from your upline. I’d like the opportunity to show you how.
