When one has a small business they need to ensure they are saving as much money as possible when it comes to supplies. They also need to ensure that those supplies have good quality as well so they will last a long time. Most small businesses will not have the opportunity to buy in bulk like larger companies. They still need to buy more than one item, just not hundreds at a time. This is where it can be cost effective and the business would need to find a way to get the items at a reduced cost.



One business type that may have this issue is those that provide individuals with over night hospitality. This is where they will need bedding to ensure that the guests staying in the provided facilities will have a comfortable, restful and inviting place to sleep. These types of businesses are going to be those that provide temporary homes for hospitals, small non-chain motels, short term corporate housing or even spas and salons that have beds. One of the main costs to provide comfortable and inviting sleeping space is comforter sets. Each one could add up very quickly. Palmetto Linen has wholesale comforter sets for businesses like these. They offer great quality bed sets that can be purchased in either 4 piece or 7 piece sets. The business can order the quantity they need and ensure that all their sets will match. Since the businesses are able to get the sets with wholesale prices, they are going to be able to save hundreds of dollars. They are also going to be ensured that they will have the sizes available that they are going to need. This is going to make it easier to ensure they can place one big order to cover all their needs. Wholesale comforter sets are the way to go for these types of businesses; these comforter sets are not only fashionable, but are also made with quality materials to last a long time.




Being able to purchase anything at wholesale is going to help save money. Money that is saved can be used to purchase other items that the business needs to provide for its guests or be able to have it set aside for emergencies. Anytime a business is starting out, they want to be able to cut costs in any way they can, but sacrificing quality or comfort isn’t going to help a business that functions on hospitality. Palmetto Linen is going to be the answer to help these smaller businesses get all the supplies they need in one shopping trip that takes no more time than visiting their site on the Internet. Then, if they ever need more, they will be able to find the matching items through the same company. Having a reliable source for the bulk of the domestic supplies required can be a time and money saving advantage for a small business.

Attractive tablecloths and napkins are a must have for any event or fine dining establishment. Whether it be a wedding reception or kid's birthday party, table linens have the ability to serve more than function. The right color linen can make a centerpiece or table accent pop. While it may be tempting to rent linens when hosting for a crowd, a surprisingly more affordable option is to purchase wholesale tablecloths and napkins. Not only are there more options, but linens can be used for multiple events. For businesses that require large quantities of table linens, wholesale is an affordable option that allows the purchase of quality linens for less.



Purchasing wholesale tablecloths and napkins, allows for a wider variety of choices at a lower cost. This includes color, as well as fabric options. One option for busy event planners is Permalux. The Permalux line includes tablecloths, napkins and placemats. This durable, cotton blend momie weave fabric is not only wrinkle resistant; it holds color through multiple uses. Use after use, these linens allow any dining event to be hosted in style. Colors range from more neutral colors like white and ivory to bright shades of gold and flag red. Tablecloths are available in a variety of sizes and lengths to meet specific individual or business needs. Napkins can be purchased in matching or contrasting colors. Matching Permalux placemats are also available.

 

Wholesale products are available for both private sector industries and large public institutions. The advantage of purchasing wholesale is that quality does not have to be sacrificed for quantity. Event planners and dining establishment managers have high demands when it comes to table linens because they are the canvas on which they place their product. If the canvas is wrinkled and faded, it distracts from products. By purchasing high quality tablecloths and linens like Permalux at the wholesale price, the best of both worlds can be achieved.



Whether an event has fifty guests or fifteen hundred, purchasing wholesale tablecloths and napkins is an excellent way to save resources while still presenting the very best. High quality table linens that are bright and wrinkle free will make guests feel comfortable and ready to enjoy their meal in style. The wholesale, bulk affordability will leave the host with the confidence to focus on more important aspects of the event such as ensuring that their guests are treated in a way that makes them want to return again and again.

They are perhaps not the first thing to pop into your head when you consider the decor of your bathroom, but plastic shower curtain hooks can be more than just functional - they can be quite fashionable too. Today shower hooks come in so many different shapes, sizes, colors, and designs that you can tailor fit them to any bathroom decorative scheme imaginable. The sheer variation can make these plastic shower curtain hooks an attractive option over their metal counterparts, and the advantages go well beyond that.



1. They are simple to install. 
The plastic material lends itself well to shower hooks and rings. You can easily bend them or spread them apart to make attachment to curtains and curtain rods a breeze.



2. They slide easily. 
Pulling your curtain open and closed with plastic hooks is a dream. The plastic moves so smoothly across curtain rods without effort, and without making those annoyingly loud noises that metal hooks can make. For many this noise is akin to fingernails on a chalkboard.



3. They can be quite durable. 
The plastic will seldom deform, bend out of shape, or shatter under normal circumstances. Metal or ceramic shower curtain hooks tend to be much more prone to damage.



4. They stay in place. 
Most of the plastic curtain hooks have some sort of locking mechanism, whereas their metal counterparts are simply just a hook. It can be quite annoying when you go to close your curtain as you step into the shower only to have the hooks fall from the rod and clang against the tub. Plus, take it from me; stepping on those metal hooks in bare feet is no fun at all.



5. They are corrosion resistant. 
You won't need to worry about these hooks rusting and staining your curtains or shower. Nothing is worse than oxidation and rust stains coming from your shower curtain hooks, of all places.



6. They are affordable. 
Possibly one of the best benefits of choosing plastic for your shower curtain hooks is the financial advantage over hooks of alternate materials. Not only are the plastic hooks cheaper on average, but are also significantly lighter, which lends itself to lower shipping fees if you prefer to do your shopping online. Gone are the days of shower curtain ring salesmen like Dell Griffith (played by John Candy) in the film 'Planes, Trains and Automobiles'. The amount of available choices literally at your fingertips online makes shopping with your computer one of the best ways to find the exact shower curtain ring you need to pull your bathroom decor together.



When you decide that you want to renovate or redecorate your bathroom, don't overlook the lowly shower curtain hook. It is not just a means of functionality, as it can really tie into every other aspect of your bathroom and say a little something about your personality while doing it. So, make sure to put some thought into your shower curtain hooks and chose plastic when you do!

Few people would dream of heading to bed without a comfortable pillow. Even when traveling away from home, a pillow is an iconic reminder of comfort and relaxation. Pillows have had a long history and span many cultures, but they haven’t always been soft. Hard wooden pillows have even been found in the tombs of mummies. While those may be easy to clean, they can’t be very comfortable!

 

Over the ages, pillows have been filled with many materials such as straw and buckwheat. These materials could be easily be replaced and refilled but are not nearly as high quality as modern stuffing such as cotton, feathers or polyester filling. These more modern materials are not as easily replaced, and frequent washing can wear down pillows especially in situations that require frequent laundering such as a hotel, hospital, or school. A pillowcase is the best solution for pillow hygiene in multi-user situations. Special hypoallergenic pillow protectors often have a zippered closure to fully encase and protect the pillow.



When ordering pillowcases in bulk, they are standardized in accordance to bed sizes and often come in three common sizes. A standard pillowcase is 20 inches by 26 inches (51 cm × 66 cm). Queen sized pillowcases are 20 inches by 30 inches (51 cm × 76 cm). King sized pillows require a pillowcase measuring 20 inches by 36 inches (51 cm × 91 cm). 



Pillowcases also have a couple different styles of opening. The most common is the bag style which is sewn on three sides and open on a short side to allow the pillow to be put in and out. This is a good feature in situations where pillowcases are frequently changed and many pillowcases are on hand. Some pillows are sewn along all four sides and instead have a slit down the back to remove the pillow. These are often decorative pillowcases and are not meant for sleeping. Decorative pillowcases and shams can be an easy way to change decor and dress up a space, but the classic white pillowcase is more versatile. White pillowcases are easily bleached and reassuring clean. When there is a need for bulk pillowcases, white is easy to mix and match and can put visitors and guests at ease, as it is visually hygienic.



Some people find cotton pillowcases to be the most comfortable as they absorb sweat; however, cotton can wrinkle considerably in the wash. Satin pillowcases are useful for keeping hair in place and not waking up with bed head. Other fabrics frequently used for pillowcases include cotton-poly and microfiber fabrics. If bulk pillowcases are needed a fabric such as microfiber is easily washed, less apt to wrinkle and still soft to the touch. No matter what style, size or fabric a pillowcase is made off, it still spans time and culture as a creature comfort and requirement for restful sleep.

Spa rugs can be a perfect accent for your bathroom. They can create a soft subtle atmosphere in the room, or they can even liven up the space with the burst of color. Best of all, they are quite affordable and can help you in varying the appearance of your bathroom within your budget. In fact, you can even decorate your bathroom for holidays, or seasonally transform it depending upon the bath rug you place in there.



From more beautiful and unique bathroom rugs, to the traditional styles that come in as a package to complete your bathroom, there are thousands of choices when it comes to bathroom rugs. Most of the bathrooms have either a tile or linoleum flooring that looks really good and is easily maintained, but can be too cold for the feet. Spa bath rugs can not only let you show off your bathroom flooring, but can also add warmth and décor for your feet. 



Most bathroom floors tend to have lots of water splashed on them, which can make them slippery. Spa bath rugs can give you a comfortable place to stand when you step out of the shower or tub and also provide you a safe spot where you won’t slip. All those who live in apartments or those who care for and maintain smaller motels, short-term overnighters B&B's, Spas, etc. can also use these rugs to decorate or remodel their bathrooms. These rugs are best for adding variety or color to any room. You can buy them in different pattern designs and colors to give a new fresh look to a bathroom. 



In fact, a high quality bath rug can turn your bathroom area into a luxurious spa. Imagine that stylish plush rug in a rich jewel color. The right spa rug can also make your bathroom a fun place for your kids. How about the Spiderman or Muppets on your floor? Add some matching toothbrushes, a shower curtain, and you won’t ever fight with your kids to get cleaned up and brush their teeth.



The number of bath rugs in a bathroom may vary, depending upon the size of bathroom. If you have a large bathroom with abundant floor space, you can use large spa bath rug sets. You might also want to buy towels and other decorative accessories that can coordinate with the bath rug set. On the other hand, if you have a small bathroom, or if its floor plan presents a decorative challenge, the best option is to buy individual bath rugs that can fit your decorating requirements. 



The choice of texture of bath rugs is a personal choice, but you should consider the amount of traffic that the rugs will be exposed to. In a frequently used space, the ease of care and color would be the main factors in choosing the rugs for your bathroom. With a luxuriously soft rug, your bathroom can give a spa like feeling you’ll love. A sunshine yellow, bright orange, or lime green bath rug can be the perfect accent piece to brighten up a boring and dull bathroom. Regal colors or neutral tones such as dark purple or crimson can add to a guest bath or master bath. 



Although bath rugs are decorative, their placement determines their functionality. You would want to place a non-slip rug besides your shower or tub and a soft, warm rug at your sink. The rugs you want to place in your bathroom do not have to be exactly the same nor do they have to be purchased as a set. You can mix patterned rugs with solid colored rugs to enhance décor of your bathroom.
