4 Things to Consider For Your Bathroom Remodel

Posted on August 25th, 2015 by

Designing a new bathroom is about creating balance between the features and amenities you want, the space you have available, and the lifestyle you want to live. To achieve that balance, the following are five things you should consider as you go about the design process.

  1. Start with privacy. Carefully consider window placement, the location of the toilet, and whether you want to segregate your bathroom space to enhance privacy.
  2. Consider resale when determining features/fixtures. You should make your bathroom comfortable for your needs, but not so customized that a potential buyer would be turned away.
  3. Create a theme. The theme of your bathroom should blend with your home. If you have traditional designs within the kitchen, living room, bedrooms, then that same theme should be extended into the bathroom.
  4. Factor in efficiency. Lighting and plumbing fixtures should be chosen for their energy efficiency. This is becoming an increasingly important selling point and it will help you save money on your utility bills.

Ideal for creating focal points, two-toned kitchen cabinets can effectively draw attention to your countertops, appliances, and cooking surfaces. These often serve as the boundaries between the two colors. Further, by using multiple colors (Dark on bottom, light on top), each of these features will stand out as unique, yet connected within the same design.

Two-toned schemes have the primary benefit of breaking up the monotony of your kitchen design. While a single-color scheme definitely has a classic appearance, it can also be dull and boring. Moreover, without a break, everything gets camouflaged. Two-toned styles don’t have this problem as they make it easier to notice the design and the uniqueness of each cabinet, your appliances, the fixtures, flooring, and even the wall colors.  

The staff at Design Build Team, Inc. would be delighted to help you choose the right two-toned kitchen cabinets for your home remodeling projects. We invite you to contact us to learn more about the latest styles and most popular designs.

Create Fabulous Kitchen Made for Entertaining

Some of the best kitchen design ideas are the ones that make hosting parties and inviting friends over for special occasions easier and more enjoyable. From adding in wine coolers, to increasing your storage space, the better your kitchen design, the more relaxed you will be during the party.

Start with an island. This gives you storage plus it provides place for you to set out appetizers for everyone to snack on. Add in a couple bar stools and guests will flock to the island in droves.

Another feature to add would be double ovens and refrigerator/freezer drawers. These give you more space to cook, and more space to store the raw ingredients. If you host regularly, these are features you will most certainly use.

Finally, mini-wine cellars can genuinely come in handy. Having one makes it easy to keep a ready supply of bottles chilled to perfection, thus ensuring your party never gets off to a late start.
