Kitchen Remodel

Posted by on Sep 20, 2011 in Blog, Kitchen Remodel

Here is a new kitchen faucet from KWC.  It is the single-lever Livello faucet.  This is for the person who likes the “Ultra” Modern look.  It has a 90 degree  profile and comes in chome or stainless steel finish.  Lever can be put on the left, right or in the front.  It has a 360 degree swiveling range, a 9″ spout and a horizontial pull-out spray.  Retail price for this is $790 in chrome or $1,050 in stainless. 

If you like this style – Kohler has the Purist line and is not as expensive.  This retails at about $425 without a pull-our sprayer.

Bathroom Remodel

Posted by on Sep 8, 2011 in Bathroom Remodel, Blog

When I need ideas or inspiration for a client’s home, like most people I look through magazines.  Most pictures for kitchens, bathrooms, etc. show very large rooms with elaborate design.  Don’t be intimated by these large rooms.  Look at the details to see how you can use them in your own space. 

I like half bathrooms.  The smaller space is not overwhelming and will allow you to “let your creative hair down”.  Do something a little different that you would not normally do in the rest of your home.

Here are some pictures from Traditional Home Magazine.  These bathrooms are larger, but you can take elements from these spaces and put into a smaller bathroom.


This bathroom has a double vanity, but this idea can
be adapted to a half bath for a contemporary look.

Vanities are not always cabinets.  You can convert any size
table (your sink must fit) into a vanity.

 I like this bathroom because it shows how you can use the same tile in different patterns.  The floor is in a herringbone pattern, face of tub in diamond and walls in tub in a horizontal/vertical pattern.  You can save money using the same tile and in most cases, bigger tiles are cheaper per sq. ft. than smaller.
