Why Cover a Tissue Box?

You might not realize how a tissue box cover can really make any room in your home pop and look that much more luxurious. We’re used to buying tissues in unattractive boxes that nobody likes. Luckily, you can cover a tissue box and make it unique and beautiful.

The tissue manufacturers usually put their products in simple, unattractive, poorly designed boxes that people don’t like. Luckily, you can cover a tissue box and make it unique and beautiful. Tissue boxes are a practical necessity, but they don’t need to be ugly or old-fashioned anymore. With the right tissue box covers, you can make them a part of your decoration.

Bathroom and vanity

Tissue boxes are usually located in the bathroom, with other essential bath accessories. They should match your bathroom’s décor and complement the space. However, they are convenient to have in other rooms as well. For example, they will make your vanity look more sophisticated.

People don’t like poorly designed boxes, and that’s the main reason they decide to cover a tissue box.

Living room

It’s a good idea to have a box of tissues within arm’s reach almost anywhere in our home. Ladies watching a romantic movie on Netflix just can’t imagine not having a few tissues around (just in case some tears come running down their cheeks).

An uncovered tissue box would totally ruin the aesthetics of a living room which is known to represent your style more than anything else. Buying one elegant tissue box cover will add a special touch to your space. They have a similar purpose as decorative pillows on your sofa or other room accessories – they can be beautiful and elegant, but they are also functional.

Bedroom

It’s also common to put one tissue box in your bedroom, on the bedside table – especially for those occasions when you catch a cold or the flu. Also, whenever you’re muddling through allergy season, tissues are your life-saver.

You realize that there’s no point in making your bedside table look stylish and beautiful and then plonk a rainbow-colored tissue box on it. So, be creative and find a cover that will make a statement in your bedroom. If you share a double bed with your partner, you can have a simple yet modern covered tissue box on one side and one more elegant and feminine on the other side. Beautifully embroidered linen/cotton tissue box covers will make all the difference.

Various advantages of having a tissue box cover

Tissue box covers are not only meant to improve the aesthetics of your space. They come with other advantages as well. For example, with the slight added weight of a cover, you won’t need two hands to grab a quick tissue anymore. It may be annoying to use one hand to pull the tissue and another one to hold the box down, so it doesn’t fly up in the air. Covers solve that issue almost entirely. The little things are those that make our life easier.

Since covers look delightfully decorative, they become a necessity once you start to use them. Just be sure to find those which are easy to utilize and refill. There is a wide variety of styles and designs available, so there’s something for everybody’s taste and preferences. Some may want the cover to be unique and personalized – monogrammed, and that’s totally fine; as long as you like it, enjoy it, and it fits your room’s design.

Few tips in case you’re moving during the pandemic

If you are moving during the pandemic, you are in for a ride. We can all agree that relocating during the pandemic is not easy. You’ll need to pay special attention to everything you touch. Thus, it would be best if you had tissues, hand sanitizers, and disinfectants for surfaces all the time close at hand. You’ll also need to respect social distancing protocols and do everything you can to put yourself through the minimum possible risks.

Cleaning and disinfecting everything before packing your items in boxes or containers is crucial to protect all the people who’ll be handling them. In all the rush before, on, and after the moving day, remember to wash your hands regularly and thoroughly. Wearing a mask goes without saying, and it’s already become the routine.

Final thoughts

When you dive into the glorious world of tissue box covers, you might just realize that you could really use tissues in every room of your home, or maybe even multiple boxes per room (if you have ample space and a big family). To cover a tissue box is becoming so popular because the covers are a perfect canvas for personalization. They can become a great gift as well. It’s not too early to think about Mother’s Day or pick a random date and make your loved ones happy with a simple yet unique gift, especially if you already know how convenient it’s to have something like that these days. Whether you’re looking to refresh your current home with new details or you’re thinking about how to decorate your brand-new home, make the most out of space, and always choose items that are both functional and appealing.

When you get home, take your shoes off and put on our comfortable, cozy waffle weave slippers. They are the best! Here’s why it’s important to put on clean slippers and take your shoes off before entering your home.

  1. Protect your health!

Now more than ever, it is crucial to take care of our health. COVID-19 outbreak is a serious threat, and one of the reasons to leave shoes at the front door is to stop the spreading of bacteria and viruses in your home.

If you have small children or pets around the house, they probably spend a lot of time on the floor. By putting on our comfortable slippers and removing shoes before you enter the living room, you keep it clean and bacteria-free. The best way to additionally protect your kids is to get soft indoor booties to keep their feet warm.

  1. Avoid spreading dirt or damaging your floor

Besides preventing harmful bacteria or toxins from entering your home, leaving shoes at the front door will help you keep the dirt off your precious carpet! Another reason is to prevent any damage to the floor. If you wear large boots, they can often catch a few pebbles on the soles. Once you start walking on your hardwood floor, there is a chance it will get scratched. With that in mind, heavy boots off – cotton slippers on!

  1. Maintain clean hygiene

Besides doing everything you can to protect your health and boost your immune system, it is also crucial to keep foot hygiene at a higher level. Wearing shoes all day long will cause an unpleasant smell and sweating. Your feet need some time to relax and breathe.

One of the reasons shoes should be left at the front door is to prevent this issue and take care of your feet.

As soon as you come home, take your shoes off, and give a nice, bubbly bath to your feet. You can even apply a few massage moves to relax your soles and fingers. Feet play a crucial role in our health, so treat them with care.

Kids are like sponges; they learn everything, good or bad. When we see a child who misbehaves, they have probably picked that up from someone close. Parents often unintentionally transfer their bad habits to children.

If you wish to raise your kids the right way, make sure to set an example for them. If they see you removing your shoes at the door, they will start doing it themselves. This is an excellent way to teach them proper manners, which may help them in the future. Some cultures take shoe rules very seriously. Set the precedent for them! Shoes off at the front door, slippers on. 🙂
