A carrier for Bed Bath & Beyond is creating a distribution hub at a warehouse in Odenton. Last Mile Logistics LLC will consolidate operations from Columbia and Frederick, leasing a 124,000-square-foot space located at 1710 Midway Road in Anne Arundel County, according to commercial real estate services firm Cassidy Turley. The firm represented Last Mile and landlord RT Midway Associates LLP on the deal. Last year saw significant leasing activity in the Baltimore-area industrial real estate market, which drove overall vacancy rates down to about 8 percent at the end of 2013 from almost 10 percent at the end of 2012, according to a report by Cushman & Wakefield.

Q: A friend recommended giving our dog “dry baths” in winter. What is a “dry bath,” and will it be effective at keeping him clean? A: That's a great cold-weather question. Over-bathing with shampoo and water can cause problems when the humidity drops and humans are slathering on the hand lotion. Since dogs don't produce the same amount of oils in their skin as people do, frequent bathing can strip those natural oils essential to healthy canine coats and skin. If dry skin becomes very itchy, constant scratching or biting can open a wound, which may be difficult to heal if your dog keeps fussing at it. Dry shampoos are powders you apply to your pet's coat to absorb dirt and grease.

Today's kitchens are the command center of the home, a place where families and friends gather to share more than just meals. For this reason, spending money on kitchens is still a good idea. Kitchen improvements continue to yield the best return on investment in a home. Whether you are building a new home or renovating an older one, a large chunk of your budget will go to the kitchen, and for good reason. Appliances, cabinets and countertops are among the most costly features in a home.

Despite all the problems of central cities -- not just in the United States, but throughout the world -- many people still consider an urban apartment preferable to a house in suburbia.One of the advantages of city living is the availability of architecturally interesting residences. Sometimes, too, these older homes are more affordable than a place in a recently built development. At the same time, however, a move to a pre-war apartment usually means doing without many of the technological conveniences introduced during the past 50 years.

Q: We're thinking of turning a small bedroom adjacent to the master bedroom into a combination bath and exercise room. Besides a whirlpool tub for two, the thing I really want is a fireplace. My husband says forget it, it's not practical. What do you think?A: I think you'd adore the fireplace. The double whirlpool is the thing I'd reconsider. Interior designers all over the country these days are reporting chronic disuse of giant-size whirlpools. The reason: In our time-pressed and environmentally distressed world of the '90s, those big tubs take too long to fill, use too much water and require too much synchronization from couples who're too busy to schedule a tandem soak.

Bathroom designs range from supremely simple to devilishly complex, but even the most rudimentary three-fixture layouts can involve a lot of thought and can benefit from a little imagination.Like kitchens, which also have a lot of large, heavy, immobile elements, bathrooms need to be right from the beginning. A world of annoyance awaits you if, for instance, the tub is positioned so the door hits it every time it's opened.Putting new baths in old houses can be tricky. The space may not be ideal, and there are plumbing imperatives that have to be taken into account.

Q: I have decided to follow some advice from your column and enlarge my bathroom by breaking down the wall to a small adjacent guest room. The idea is to create a combination bath and dressing room right off my bedroom. Now I need some advice about what sort of cabinets to use in this new space. How do I choose the right kind?A: Uh-oh. Since you're following my advice so closely, I certainly hope the end result will meet your expectations. And I'm a little worried, because what you're embarking on can be a very ambitious project.

BEIJING -- When an icy Siberian wind sweeps down from the steppes of Mongolia, a gray fog of pollution enshrouds China's capital and northern China's long, dry winter sucks the moisture out of every living thing, what can be done?For many Beijingers, the only answer is to take a bath. Soak their chilled, parched bodies in the luxury of hot water. Steam this city's ubiquitous coal dust from their pores and throats.Trouble is, Beijing's apartments are drafty and underheated. TC Most residents don't have their own bathing facilities with running hot water.

A ritual bath, steeped in symbols of Judaic faith, will remind those who immerse and pray in its waters of a young rabbi and his wife killed in a terrorist attack in India a year ago. On the tiled walls of its mikvah, a deep, warm-water bath that promises spiritual purity to Jewish women, the Lubavitch Center in Pikesville will hang a marble plaque that reads, "May their merit be a blessing for all those who immerse in these waters." At 11 a.m. Sunday, in a public ceremony, the center will rededicate its Mikvah Mei Menachem in homage to Rabbi Gabi and Rivky Holtzberg.

My fiancé and I kept putting off registering for gifts not because we didn't want to but because we thought we had plenty of time. We would plan on spending the time at stores, but then other things would come up. What Keith and I were thinking was that with our wedding still six months away, we had plenty of time. However, we weren't thinking about how people need to plan showers that will happen well before the wedding -- and in order to do so they need to know where and when we are registered.  We finally got a move on last week and went to Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

A stone cottage in Baltimore's Homeland neighborhood sold recently for $500,000 in a short sale.

"The rooms are a good size with high ceilings and easy furniture placement. The house needs some exterior paint, but [the buyers]

The sale of 6520 Banbury Road just north of the Baltimore City line for $425,000 proves that the right house for the right couple can come along when least expected. The seller of this Cape Cod in the Idlewylde neighborhood contacted realtor Ashley Richardson of Long & Foster Real Estate to see if she knew of anyone that would be interested in buying. "Two days later, I met a couple … who were newly married, and they told me what they were looking for," said Richardson. "I said, 'I think I have just the house.' " There was an initial visit, then a week passed.

Christopher C. Hartman, known as Baltimore's P.T. Barnum when he staged flamboyant media events as press spokesman for Mayor William Donald Schaefer, died of heart failure Thursday at Greater Baltimore Medical Center. He was 67 and lived in Cockeysville. A founder and first chairman of the 1970 Baltimore City Fair, he was recalled as a promoter of city neighborhoods, sports teams and businesses. His best-known stunt was dressing the mayor in an old-style swimming suit and posing him in a pool with a rubber duck alongside a comely mermaid outside the National Aquarium in 1981.

When remodeling magazines and home-improvement television programs feature mega-baths that occupy 200 square feet of floor space and carry price tags of $20,000 and up, the goal is often to inspire homeowners to achieve similar results. But how many people have that kind of room and budget for a bathroom remodel? Most residential bathrooms sport a footprint only a third that size, often matched with an equally modest checkbook balance when it comes to renovation. Neither of those factors, however, should deter you from creating a dream bath.

One of the first conversations my fiancé and I had after the spastic, electric dust settled from our engagement was about our registry. I am a slob, wannabe chef and part magpie, so getting presents to help me organize, cook and fulfill my need to see sparkly stuff seemed awesome. It didn't occur to me at first that we wouldn't register -- until Rob (my fiancé) suggested something radical. No gifts. Just wine. We're moving into a new home and hope to build a wine cellar in the stone basement.

Anyone who has a cat -- or knows even the slightest thing about kitty behavior -- knows that the idea of washing a cat is a bad, bad, baaaaaaad idea. Unless you have death wish. Luckily, cats are kind of self-cleaning anyway. But when a bottle of Vet's Best Natural Formula No-Rinse Foam Waterless Cat Bath came into the office, I knew we had to test it. If there was a way to get a cat cleaner without trying to actually bathe him, I thought folks would be interested. The cat bath, widely available, sells for $6 to $8 for a four-ounce bottle.
