Home Smart Sends Aid To Ukraine via CONVOY OF HOPE
When Russia invaded Ukraine, more than 4 million innocent civilians were forced to flee in fear. Neighboring countries have opened their borders to refugees and organizations are rushing to help the innocent Ukrainians by providing food, water and shelter. In April, the team at Home Smart decided to support the refugees with donations to the Convoy of Hope.
“Convoy of Hope is a non-profit charity that has a stellar reputation. They score extremely high on charitable.com review of how expenses are allocated vs. those in need getting the support. They are already up and running supporting the refuges already all-around Ukraine,” Says Mark Kenyon, Home Smart’s President & CEO.
Convoy of Hope is in 8 neighboring countries providing relief supplies like food, water, hygiene kits and medical supplies. They have now secured a warehouse in Poland that will provide for refugees as well as enable shipments of supplies. Here at Home Smart with the donations of employees and a donation match by Mark Kenyon, we have donated $2,280.00 to send to Convoy of Hope! Thank you everyone who has donated!

Deciding to upgrade your bathroom with a walk-in tub can be intimidating for many reasons. Luckily, we’re here to help with a comprehensive list of all the benefits that come with this wonderful feature!
One of the number one concerns of people considering a walk-in tub is the extent to which they will enter and exit the tub if they have limited mobility. With the low step entry threshold typical of most walk-in tubs, you will be able to walk in and sit right down without worrying about slipping and falling.
Whether you use a walker, scooter, or wheelchair, having a safety walk-in tub can do wonders to help improve your bathing experience by making the process as comfortable and straightforward as possible.
If you struggle with chronic muscle, joint, or bone pain, hydrotherapy is a form of physical therapy that’s been used by humans for millennia. Walk-in tubs can be installed with hydrotherapy jets that, because of their depth, will fully submerge the bather’s whole body for additional relief.
A little tip: you can also add a couple of cups of Epsom salt to a warm bath with your hydrotherapy jets for extra rest and rejuvenation!
Doubles as a shower
Most walk-in tubs also double as a stand-up or sit-down shower with a faucet set and an extendable showerhead. If multiple people use the new shower, this is especially effective as the upgraded bathroom will benefit people of many different mobilities.
If you’re interested in installing a brand new walk-in tub in your bathroom, Home Smart Industries is always here to chat about you and your family’s specific needs and provide a specific, down-to-the-penny estimate. Contact us today!
A bathroom can be a very personal haven for rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation. For many people, making their bathrooms as comforting and beautiful as possible is a dream, but they don’t know where to start.
Hanging art isn’t just for above the mantel! Choosing a few excellent pieces of art to hang on your walls in your bathroom can add an element of visual appeal that you might not even know is missing.
If you aren’t into hanging artwork on your bathroom walls, there’s also an opportunity for knick-knacks and sculptures on your bathroom counter space or any decorative tables you might have.
Bathrooms are often designed as monochromatic spaces with very little pops of color. But they don’t have to be! If you’re feeling bored with your bathroom, considering adding some pops of colors, perhaps by painting the cabinets or adding an updated finish to your tub.
With the addition of plants to your space, you can add life (literally!) and light to your room! Nothing feels better after a long day than kicking back in the bath surrounded by a plethora of green, beautiful plants to make you feel like you’re in a spa.
A stylish mirror can make the appearance of a bathroom. It’s easy to underestimate the potential of a decorative mirror or reserve them to spaces outside the bathroom- but why not in the bathroom as well? Consider investing in a lovely mirror that adds a beautiful decorative element and makes looking at your reflection an overall pleasant experience.
