Tub or Shower

Tub or Shower The Great Debate

When it comes to needing a bathtub in you home their are a couple different schools of thought.  Traditional real estate agents will confirm that you need to have at least one bathtub to protect resale value.  However the tide is rapidly turning to the opinion that a well done display shower can have many advantages.  A person must first decide if they ever do use a bathtub or if they use it enough to justify the space a bathtub takes up in a bathroom.

The homes location will have an affect on which bathroom layout makes sense for you.  A neighborhood with a lot of young families might require a bathtub for small children.  On the other hand, in  a more developed community with an older population having a bathtub may be a liability.

Finally when making the decision to keep or eliminate a bathtub many people overlook the value of enjoyment.  If you plan on living in a home for five or more years the time spent enjoying a tub or shower will likely out way any perceived changes in home resale value.  Bottom line is that there are no blanket rules of thumb.

As I contractor I most often hear we would prefer a shower but we want to protect our resale value.  If so many people are saying where is there added resale value in keeping a bathtub?

KITCHEN DESIGN

 

Kitchen lighting

Great kitchen design is built around proper arrangement of areas called work centers.  This includes each individual work center, aisles for flow, anticipated activities in every area, and passageways.

In the past Kitchens were usually planned on 3 basic work centers which include: the sink and mixing area, dishwasher space, the refrigerator, and the cooking center.  Modern kitchens consist of more and more focused work areas.  A second sink i0s not uncommon as well as alternative cook top with a vent system, microwave unit, and built in oven (convectional or convection or both).

Heat flooring is a delicate process requiring years of training and experience to be installed properly.  Anyone install these type of floors should be trained by the manufacturer to know how to install and how to test the system both before and after the finished floor is installed.  At C&K we use digital programming systems that allow for preset heating temperatures through out your day.  This means no cold floors in teh moring or evening.  Heated tile flooring also acts as a radiant heating system worming the room from the bottom up.
