How A Home Can Be Beautiful And Functional!


This post is provided by James Fitzpatrick.

When it comes to decorating your home, you want the aesthetic to match your personality. However, a home does need to be functional, especially if a household emergency comes about. Here are some items you should consider splurging on that will provide a great aesthetic but also provide functional benefit when it comes time for a household emergency.

1) Bulk Medical Supplies

At any moment, there could be a medical emergency in your household and you will want to make sure that you are prepared. While many bathrooms have Band-Aids in a drawer, what you really need is a fully stocked first-aid kit. Not only that, but you should also consider spending a little extra money to make it an emergency survival kit. There are many items to consider. Go to usamedicalsurgical.com to find out more about bulk medical supplies. This site has almost everything you would need for an emergency.

2) Toilet Plunger

In most households, a toilet plunger tends to be placed right next to the toilet. But if you are about modernizing your bathroom, do not spend two dollars on a piece of plastic that brings an eye sore to the bathroom. Instead, go a little crazy and buy something that looks stylish. Go for something in chrome and bronze and consider buying something that comes with a holder. That way when it is time to use the plunger, any drip off can go right into the holder instead of on the floor. Sometimes you can get a set plunger paired with a toilet bowl cleaner.

3) Keypad Entry For Homes

It is always a problem when a key breaks or gets lost and you get locked out of your home. When this happens, it is not a pleasant experience to have to call the police or your spouse to find the spare. To solve this problem, consider something higher-tech, like a keypad entry system. Not only is this a secure way to protect your house, but it can make your door a little flashier. Most keypads tend to be in some metallic form, so you can go for a stylish chrome or bronze, or a black painted keypad.

4) Security Cameras

Speaking of security, you should consider some form of external surveillance for your household. You can either set up security cameras above your key entry points or consider investing in doorbells with cameras. A company called Ring sells doorbells that also act as a camera so a person can see on their phone or any installed video screen in their house who is at their door. They can also keep track of visitors when they are not home in case a break-in is attempted.

5) Solar Power Panels With Built-In Generator

You do not want to be caught in the dark when the power goes out. However, if your house could run on solar, then it is possible to avoid any power outages because your home would generate its own power as well as be able to store it for emergencies. Tesla is a great company to choose as they provide both solar panels and solar wall generators. While these tend to fall under more expensive investments, they are worth having in any household to withstand any disaster that could typically leave your house without power.

6) Space Heater And Fan

While many homes have HVAC already installed for the elements, you may come across a scenario where your furnace or AC goes. You will want to make sure you are prepared by investing in a space heater for the wintertime, and an oscillating fan for the summertime. Oscillating fans are saturated in today's market, so do not always settle for the cheapest model. Fans come in all sizes and colors so you should be able to find one that matches your decor and wall colors. Also, space heaters are no longer just these big bulky items, but are compact and come in neutral colors like black or white. These space heaters are good to have on hand and can pack a nice heat punch when your furnace temporarily goes.

Consider these items in your house that are so much more stylish now than they used to be. They can preserve the function of your home when there is an emergency.
