10 Things Every Single Guy Should Buy for His Bathroom…and More

Our friends at Zen College Life have recently published this very funny, and very informative article about the 10 things a single guy should buy for his bathroom. http://www.zencollegelife.com/10-things-every-single-guy-should-buy-for-his-bathroom/

The article goes on to talk about how single men don’t realize there are OTHER people who will use thier bathroom as well ( um, like women ). At Rockymountaindecor.com, we can either help you purchase some of your 10 things, or we can suggest some bathroom products to enhance them.

Number one on the list is toilet paper. Yes. You should absoltely have toilet paper stocked in your bathroom at all times. Not just when it’s running low. You should always have extras. But go one step forward and have a paper toilet holder. How about one that is rustic and eye catching? Search our toilet paper holder section:

Or here is one of our favorites that includes a magazine holder for some reading material.

Number two on the list: Bathroom rug.  We’ve got your covered.  Or we’ve got your floor covered, but you get the point.

Try a nice neutral colored bathroom rug that is warm and cozy on your feet.  Your feet will thank you when you get out of the shower.

Moose!

Wikipedia describes the majectic moose as: “The moose (North America) or Eurasian elk (Europe) (Alces alces) is the largest extant species in the deer family. Moose are distinguished by the palmateantlers of the males; other members of the family have antlers with a dendritic (“twig-like”) configuration. Moose typic

ally inhabit boreal and mixed deciduous forests of the Northern Hemisphere in temperate to subarctic climates. Moose used to have a much wider range but hunting and other human activities greatly reduced it over the years. Moose have been re-introduced to some of their former habitats. Their diet consists of both terrestrial and aquatic vegetation. The most common moose predators are wolves, bears, and humans. Unlike most other deer species, moose are solitary animals and do not form herds. Although generally slow-moving and sedentary, moose can become aggressive and move surprisingly fast if angered or startled. Their mating season in the autumn can lead to spectacular fights between males competing for the right to mate with a particular female.”

Moose are fascinating animals and they make spectacular home decor. You’d be surprised all of the things you can add a moose to and make it look rustic and wonderful.  With its grand antlers, unmistakable silhouette, and regal air, the moose is one of the most impressive and beloved creatures of the wild. Its image is widely popular in log cabin decor and rustic home furnishings. Now you can bring the spirit of the moose to your own home, thanks to our collection of fine moose art, moose furniture, moose bedding, moose bathroom accessories, and more.

Big Game Antlers- a quick guide…

Antlers are awesome- from the wide antlers of Bull Moose, to the delicate branchlike growths of Caribou, no two are alike.  But can you tell the difference? Some people have a hard time remembering the difference between various types of antlers and their owners. Here’s a good way to remember- I use it all the time to teach my friends and family.

“Silent Waters” by John Seerey-Lester

Spread out your hands real wide and stick your thumbs on your temples, with you palms facing upward. That’s a Moose- with PALMATE antlers.

“On The Move” by George LaVanish

Now, move your outstretched hands to the top of your head, resting your wrists on the top of you head and your thumbs facing back. Curl your fingers like you’re holding a ball. That’s a Deer with their basket-like antler structure.

Whitetails and Mule Deer have Different antler structures-Whitetails have a single beam that arches over their head like a crown,whereas Muley’s branch upwards like a tree.

“Indian Summer” by Carl Brenders
Now, keep your hands spread wide and put your elbows against your ears. This resembles the single beam of Elk antlers that go back from the head and over the back. Your forearms represent the beam that the points extend from.

Remember these positions and you’ll be able to recall which animal owns which antlers- not to mention a neat way to teach folks about Big Game,  in a fashion they’ll never forget!
