Top 3 bathroom design ideas

When taking on the challenge of a bathroom remodel you first need to determine how you want your bathroom to look. In terms of Bathroom design, you may go with a regular design or with a luxurious design, with the former being a cut above your standard bathroom design. With that in mind, below we’re going to take a closer look at some of the options you may go with in this regard.

Contemporary

If you’ll go with a contemporary bathroom design, then you should focus on selecting elements that are mostly constructed of industrial materials and are also sleek. Go for glass and stainless steel vanities with low profile vessel sinks or built in sinks in either stainless steel or glass. For the flooring, you may want to go for stone flooring like concrete or slate. Next is the decoration, for which you should go with a single bold color, like bright yellow or red and then add a few accents of the chosen color, such as a large piece of wall art or a floor rug.

Traditional

If a traditional and luxurious bathroom is what you want to create, then go for pieces that reflect both luxury and comfort. Furniture style vanities that feature rich food finishes, like mahogany, oak or cherry are recommended. As for the flooring, you should get hardwood flooring in the same tones. For vanity tops and flooring, both granite and marble will work just fine, but you should stay away from dark gray or black tones, because they will interrupt your traditional finish. In terms of the color of your walls, a soft color will do, like beige.

Country

Lastly, if you want a country bathroom remodeling, then you should go for upscale country elements, like claw foot or copper pedestal tubs. The hardwood flooring should be chosen in lighter tones, like sky blue, sage green or soft pink. Lastly, you can complete the bathroom by adding accents.

 

As you can see, these are the main tips you should consider depending on the type of bathroom remodeling you want to go with. Good luck with your project!

There’s no doubt that cabinets are a a very essential part of your home. If you are looking to remodel your kitchen or you would like to just replace your kitchen cabinets, then you should know there are many options in this regard. While some of them are ready-made cabinets, most people who want their cabinets to perfectly fit their kitchen, will go for the custom made ones. When it comes to custom cabinets, they will not only look exactly the way you want them to in all aspects, like size, color, materials and so on, but they’re also going to be quite durable. Below we’re going to take a closer look at their benefits.
Many Storage Space Options
When choosing a cabinet design, you’ll be happy to know that it will fit the designated area perfectly. No more will you need to worry about finding kitchen cabinets that will hold your cooking utensils, silverware, pans, pots, griddle, waffle maker, dishes, mixing bowls and so on, because a customer kitchen cabinet is designed to hold all of them easily.
A Variety of Design Options
Of course, you will want that your kitchen area matches your decorative style and your personality and you can easily achieve that by going with custom cabinets. Imagine just how wonderful your cabinets will look, given the fact that you can decide on the stain color, type of material used, size, and the installation method. Even if the standard material is painted or stained wood, you can also use plastic or steel if you want.
Customized Add-On Options
In some cases, people will want to store their small microwave on a shelf under one of the storage spaces and if you also want to do that, then custom cabinets can be designed so that your microwave will perfectly fit in it. Even better, you can also use see through glass doors, if you want to display your dishes.

With that being said, there’s no doubt that custom kitchen cabinets are the best types you can get, because you will be in control of every single detail and make them fit perfectly in your kitchen space.

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).
