5 Reasons You Need a Walk-in Shower

If you haven’t had the opportunity to install a walk-in shower in your bathroom yet, well, we are here to convince you that this is the year that you are just going to have to do it! Walk-in showers are absolute must-haves in any bathroom and you will be asking yourself what took you so long after we design and install yours. See, a walk-in shower is best when it is custom built to your specific needs. No more dealing with a tub and shower combo or a corner shower with walls that restrict movement.

Here are 5 reasons you need a walk-in shower:

  1. They are space savers: Walk-in showers actually save space in your bathroom! Since they do not have shower doors or high trays, you actually have more room in your bathroom than you could ever imagine. Your bathroom will look bigger too!
  2. They are practical: Do you have children? You can shower more than one child at a time in these showers! They are also perfect if you find yourself a little less mobile due to an accident in the future, as you can fit a wheelchair or a walker inside them.
  3. They are easy to maintain: As long as you install a removable shower head, you can spray down the walls at any time when they need cleaning. And when it comes to cleaning the floor, well, you can clean that as you are cleaning the rest of the floor in your bathroom.
  4. Designer look that adds a high-end value: Walk-in showers give any bathroom a designer look that will add a high-end value to any home. That reason alone should have everyone installing these showers.
  5. They are durable: Since there are very few fixtures involved in walk-in showers, they will last a long time without needing repairs or replacing. There are no hinges to rust or fall off, no door seals to wear out, and nothing to collapse. Therefore, you can keep using your walk-in shower as it continues to look as good as it did the day you had it installed.

5 Kitchen Design Tips for Your Small Kitchen Remodeling Project

Kitchen remodeling can be daunting, especially when you’re working with a small space, but you can bring it all together with a great design. If you want to change the look of your small kitchen for the better and give it some charm, focus on the basic elements such as the cabinetry, hardware finishes, appliances, and window shades. Most of all, remember to keep it simple. 

Are you ready for the challenge? Apply these five simple design tips to revamp your small kitchen:

  1. Open up the Room: This is a great way to make it more stylish and create the impression of a more expansive space. But remember: when you open up your kitchen you have to minimize the clutter, so you’re going to need some hidden storage areas to keep things out of sight. 
  2. Select a simple color scheme: It’s a good idea to use similar hues for the walls and cabinetry. Choose complementary colors for the countertops, tiles, window treatments, and appliances, to enhance the feeling of spaciousness. The colors you choose will make a big difference in the overall look and feel of the kitchen.
  3. Appliances: Opt for appliances that will fit the space. For example, choose a flush mount cooktop instead of a range that takes up space. Weigh the pros and cons of using gas powered appliances vs. electric appliances, and the energy efficiency of each appliance you purchase.
  4. Cabinetry: Forgo solid fronts and choose glass cabinet doors that will lighten the cabinetry, and create the illusion of space. Stretching cabinets to the ceiling can also help maximize space. Combine decorative cabinetry with floating shelving for an even more unique appeal.
  5. Lighting: You want your kitchen to be light, bright, and cozy. Small ceiling pendant lights add a special glow to the room. Hang them low for better lighting, especially over the countertop and sink. Focus on both ambient lighting and task lighting as well. Ambient lighting can be created using windows for natural light or recessed lighting. Under-cabinet lighting is a wonderful addition for task lighting on countertops.
