From Beginning to Advanced: Blogs on Industry and Manufacturing

Greetings! My name is Adam. I work in the advertising industry as a brand developer. I also teach surfing lessons and spend a lot of time volunteering with an animal hospital. When I was on a gap year, I took a job in a pen factory. Through that experience, I learned a great deal about how pens were made, but I also learned a lot about industrial work and manufacturing in general. In this blog, I plan to write about all aspects of these topics, and I hope that this information is interesting and informative to you. Please, grab a tea and start looking around. If you like my blogs, share them. Thanks.

The 3 Home Improvements New Parents Won't Want to Live Without

by Daniel Wilson

Are you and your partner expecting your first little bundle of joy in the near future? If you're used to living child-free, there's a good chance your home isn't optimised for a new baby. First-time motherhood and fatherhood can be difficult, so here are 3 home improvement installations that could make your life easier.

Residential Lift

Gone are the days when residential lifts were only for the ridiculously wealthy. Home lifts are now an affordable home improvement for middle-income families, and they make life with a new baby so much easier. Back pain and joint overuse isn't a problem reserved for senior citizens. As young mothers and fathers find themselves doing more lifting and carrying than ever before, they can quickly begin to suffer from discomfort and minor injuries. Having a lift installed in your home will prevent these problems by giving you an easy way to transport things like heavy laundry between storeys. They're also a great idea for small homes where storage is limited -- a lift allows you to keep large items like strollers upstairs without hassle. As an added bonus, it's easier to keep a snoozing baby asleep in a lift than it is when lugging them up a staircase.

Soft Close Doors

Speaking of sleeping babies, there are few things more distressing to a young parent than their little one wailing incessantly from tiredness. When you've finally got your bundle down for a nap, you'll want to do everything in your power to keep them that way. If you want to avoid the loud noise of a closing nursery door from startling your sleeping child, consider getting soft close hinges installed on your doors. These hinges force doors to close slowly and gently, eliminating any slamming. They'll also come in handy for safety when your baby is old enough to toddle around, as they prevent heavy doors from closing on tiny hands.

Hardwood Floor

Many parents assume full-home carpeting is the best choice for raising a family. After all, carpet is warm and soft. However, it's also one of the word types of flooring for keeping bacteria at bay. The natural fibres and the millions of minuscule gaps allow germs to grow freely and make thoroughly cleaning difficult. Remember that a new baby brings tonnes of extra messes, from spilt food to leaking nappies. If you don't want to spend thousands a year on carpet cleaning, it may be the time to upgrade to easy-to-clean hardwood flooring. To prevent your child from falling and hurting themselves while they're just beginning to become mobile, you can use rugs and purpose-made mats for them to lie or walk on. Sticking a dirty rug into a washing machine is far easier than cleaning a whole carpet.
