Discovering The Beauty of Drawer Dishwashers

Debates over whose turn it is to do the dishes have plagued family dinner tables for decades. Here’s why you should consider adding them to your kitchen design.

  1. Perfect for small load washers- If you don’t wait until every dish in your cabinet is dirty to load the washer, a drawer design is great for conserving energy and water on a quick wash.
  2. Time saver- Use one drawer to store clean dishes and the other to start loading dirty ones. You’ll never have to worry about putting all of the dishes away in a hurry again.
  3. Space saver- Drawer dishwashers are good additions to narrow kitchens like the galley design.
  4. Easily blended- You can custom fit a wood panel to cover a single dishwasher drawer. This makes it quick to clean up in a butler’s pantry and it won’t impose on the design of your basement wet bar.

Some have complained about a problem with mold buildup in drawer dishwashers but that’s not a cause for concern. Simply run your washers on an empty load with 1 cup of white vinegar to solve the mold epidemic. Overall it’s a compact and economical solution that can lend a helping hand in the areas you need it.

Our clients choose us because of the total quality control we exercise over their remodeling project, and the respect we have for their homes. They had a vision that we turned into reality! You can rest assured that we oversee your job from start to finish.

Design in the Dark- Mix & Match Renovation is Truly an Art

Torn between choosing one of two or more materials? Who says you have to? Take a risk and customize your renovation by having your cake and eat it too. If you’re torn on which materials to use on your kitchen counter, try using one material on the majority of your workspace and using the other on a kitchen island.

This adds depth and dimension to your kitchen’s design, and gives you peace of mind because you’re no longer stressed over the design. If you don’t have space for an island, or if it’s just not on your list of kitchen favorites, try incorporating a unique blend of layers.

Adding an inset of a different material into your main countertop design creates a designated space for a specific task. If you do a lot of cutting and chopping, place a butcher block inset into your counters. If you love to bake, try a marble inset for an elegant cooling space.

Be sure that you don’t make a major investment such as countertops without seeing the materials in person first. Never make a decision based on online images. Visiting a showroom or requesting samples will help eliminate any potential disappointment when your order finally arrives.

Lighting Up Your Life- Make Any Space More Modern With Under Cabinet Lighting

If you’ve yet to witness the marvels of modern design, you are truly missing out. Under cabinet lighting adds a luxurious touch to kitchens, bathroom, basements, and more. Just an extra touch of illumination transforms the traditional kitchen or bar to an inviting social space when the lights go off.

With the flick of a switch, your man cave can turn into a luxury lounge. Put the children to bed and pour you and your spouse a relaxing glass of wine. Your customized under cabinet light sets the ambiance for a relaxing evening for two.

So how do you choose the best brand to suit your needs? The following are two reliable sources of task lighting:

XENON- Manufacturers produce low-voltage strips or pucks. It’s a more economical source that does not neglect the vibrancy of its colors and width of its beams. XENON under cabinet lighting is also dimmable, giving you more control over the feel of your space.

LED- These energy-efficient under cabinet lighting options are extremely long-lasting. The thin strips don’t require much to camouflage it to blend with your cabinetry. They often illuminate a slight blue tint unless the packaging is rater under 3,500 on the Kelvin scale. LED under cabinet lighting may be a little to locate.

Contact your contractor for assistance with selecting the right type of lighting for your space.

How to Use Color to Transform Your Room

What if you could make your room larger without ever demolishing a wall? What if you could transform a spacious area into an intimate space without breaking out the drywall and framing? Sounds a bit farfetched but it’s completely possible. How do you do it? Color.

Warm colors on the wall makes your space feel cozier. If you want to widen a narrow space, try different colors on opposing walls. This, along with the right furniture and accessories can completely transform the look and feel of any space in your home.

The style of your home makes a difference as well. Dark olives have been passed on Craftsman style homes in favor of a celery green for a fresh touch to a traditional home. To see what works best for you and your space, take advantage of the plethora of online color tools that’ll give you a look into what the finished product may be.

Don’t underestimate the power of color. We even use the definition of the hues in our daily vocabulary. “I’m feeling blue.” “I see red right now.” Subconsciously, we already know how these colors affect our brains. All that’s left is pulling out that knowledge and getting some paint on the walls!

Create a Spa Bathroom

Why should spa bathrooms be reserved for Lifestyle of the Rich & Famous TV specials or expensive resorts you’ll only see on the Internet (or the very rare occasions you’re able to go on vacation)? Wouldn’t you prefer to have all of the comforts of a spa bathroom right in your own home? Well now you can with these simple add-ons.

Go for Wood Accents- Wooden slats instantly give off the relaxing mood of a day at the sauna. An easy addition for a relaxing Zen-like suite.

Natural Textiles- When you think spa, you think cool breezes and becoming one with nature. Use this as inspiration while you select a variety of stones, wood, and water elements that embody the spa. Try a pebbled tile when adding new flooring to your spa space for a calming massage with each step.

Defy Gravity– Nothing says “spa” like a floating vanity. Your design can allow for an extension of the flooring to carry through the walls, creating a soothing open experience while you’re soaking in the tub.

 

Don’t forget about the details you place on display. Spa accessories such as rolled towels, plush robes, exotic flowers and candlelight are a pocket-friendly addition to your design.
