It might sound classic, but cream and white bathrooms are still at the top popularity chain this year. Traditionally, bathrooms weren’t made to be very colorful either way.

They wanted it to look refreshing and use colors that would not stress the eye. For this reason, this color combo will not lose popularity points anytime soon.
Those that wish their bathroom to have a splash of color might want to consider white and cherry red bathrooms. In this case, the cabinets, toilet, sink, or bathtub should be white – but one wall and other accessories should be red.
We’re almost in 2021. While flying cars may be at quite a distance from us, the world is still modernizing. We can’t have an AI-driven maid in every household as we saw in The Jetsons, but we do have several smart gadgets that we can enjoy. These gadgets can save us a lot of time, as they will do a part of our job for us. Here is what you’ll have to consider.
Don’t you just hate it when you have a recipe that requires you to stir the pot continuously? Not only does it hurt your arm as you keep stirring, but you can’t step away from it either. This is something very inconvenient when you have multiple things to do in the kitchen. That being said, multiple companies nowadays are creating automatic pan stirrers which – you guessed – automatically stir the contents of your pot. These units often come with a timer that you may set based on the recipe.
When you have your hands dirty, you may sometimes not want to touch the faucet. Or maybe once you’ve cleaned your hands, you don’t want to touch a germ-packed faucet. Nowadays, it is possible to install a touchless faucet that will use sensors to detect your hands. All you have to do is place your hands under the faucet, and it will begin delivering water. Plus, this smart gadget will reduce water consumption, as it only delivers the amount of water that you need.
The year 2020 was one that saw quite a lot of renovation, and more and more homeowners chose intriguing designs to make their home look, well… homey. Some of these designs were there for a long time, with timeless popularity that one could not ignore Others were a bit more recent – but with a beauty that made every kitchen look modern. Here is what most people focused on adding to their kitchen this past year.
Carrara’s fancier sibling, calacatta marble has bolder veins that lead to a more pronounced graphic appeal. It is used in both warm and cool tones, and it gives off a certain elegance that is hard to match. People used calacatta marble not only for the countertops but also for the backsplash – giving the kitchens a higher level of style and elegance.
2020 was also the year of experimentation, which is why more and more people played with using unconventional materials for their new kitchen design. For example, some individuals chose to go for brass backsplashes, to add a certain sense of industrial style to the kitchens. Others went for cabinets wrapped in leather, to give the kitchen a cozy or a bachelor-like look. “Special” is the key here, particularly when you want to have a unique kitchen.
Your kitchen is likely to go through a lot – and this applies mostly to your kitchen floors. Not only do they have to deal with your spills and drips, but they also need to withstand potential humidity and dropped utensils. For this reason, you need to be particularly careful about the type of flooring that you use. After all, you don’t want to replace the floors only to ruin them at the first incident in the kitchen. Here are some examples of kitchen flooring that you might want to consider trying.
Hardwood is very popular for its durability, and it is a common choice to add to every room. For a long time, hardwood was considered to be weak against moisture and not be suitable for places like the kitchen – but nowadays, this material has gone through an entire revolution.
Modern sealers and finishes make it sleek and durable – and therefore, less susceptible to humidity damage. A well-maintained hardwood kitchen floor can easily last you for a couple of years. Plus, if it does get stained, it will get that sought “aged look” that many homeowners love.
As surprising as it may seem, bamboo looks like hardwood, but it is much harder in its feel. Because of its manufacturing process, it is much more resistant to stain and damage as compared to hardwood.
Are you in love with the kitchens you often see in farmhouses? There’s something about that country style that is very charming, and it just makes you want to cook in that kitchen daily. If you’re at the point where you have to remodel your kitchen, then you can use this opportunity to create that country look that you were longing for.
There are certain elements that can help you achieve this design, and you will discover them in this article. Let’s get started!
You can give up on the idea of storing your dishes in as many cabinets as your kitchen fits. Open shelving is a good way to store things, but it also adds that country look you are aiming for. Open shelving looks casual and intentional at the same time. If you have beautiful dishes that you’d like to display, then these types of shelves are perfect for you.
Also, open shelving is the way to go if you have a smaller kitchen and want to make it seem more spacious. If you want to add more to that country aspect, you can try using some baskets under the counter. They will help organize things much better too.
So, you want to remodel your bathroom. How difficult can it be? You’ve seen all those remodeling videos on the Internet, and it all seems like a piece of cake. Unfortunately, it’s not always as easy as you’d like it to be. Sure, you can simply go shopping for new vanities, but are they the right ones for your bathroom?
There are numerous vanity options out there, and you can definitely find something that you like and fits the bathroom. For example, floating vanities are some of the favorite picks nowadays. If you’re considering them as well, then you should know their benefits and drawbacks. Discover them below.
Decorating a narrow bathroom is very tricky. You cannot exactly add any type of vanity, as some would end up taking too much space and make the room feel even smaller.
With floating vanities, that is not a concern anymore. This is because it is raised from the floor, so it doesn’t take any floor space. As a result, there is more light bouncing around, which makes the space seem larger while saving space, at the same time. So, if you feel like the bathroom would look too cluttered with traditional vanities, then floating vanities will do a better job of adding the illusion of space.
Autumn 2020 is here – and we all know what that means. It means that it is time for us to give our kitchen an autumn upgrade and make sure that it is following through with the trends. Since our countertops are the first things that we see upon entering a kitchen, we need to focus on them. So, here are the trends that seem to be booming this year.
In the past, people would go crazy about an even, symmetric design. Nowadays, people want their kitchen countertops to have a bit more personality. This is why veining patterns have become such a trending option these days. The same can be said about those featuring creative swirls. They will create quite an accent in the kitchen, and more and more people are opting for this.
Quartz countertops are here, and they are definitely here to say. Added as a higher alternative to granite, people seem to prefer quartz nowadays as it is much durable, stronger – and let’s face it, good looking when compared to granite. The downside, however, is that it’s quite a porous stone. So, unless you get a countertop with a good protective layer, liquid spillages can seep into the surface and cause it to stain.
When you walk into any bathroom, one of the first things you notice is the bathtub – or the shower. It’s an important part of any house, so you should be very careful when choosing it.
When remodeling a bathroom, the bathtub or shower is the piece that will have the most impact overall, since it is something that would take up space and is quite costly. The choice between the two is hard, though. Both of them are beneficial in their own way. So, which one should you go for? If you’re having a hard time making a decision, here are some things to keep in mind.
The costs for buying and installing a bathtub vs a shower are different. In general, a tub will be the more expensive option. Installing a bathtub may cost you between $1,100 and $1,800 if you’re designing a new bathroom and/or adding new fixtures. Meanwhile, installing a shower can cost you from $815 to $930.
Of course, the price is influenced by multiple other factors. Depending on where you live and what type of bathtub or shower you choose, the cost may increase or decrease. For instance, a custom-built shower will be pricier than a prefabricated one. The same can be said about bathtubs.
Kitchen styles come and go, but if there is one thing that we cannot deny, it’s the fact that we need kitchen islands. We need a functional space in the kitchen where we can cook our meals. The problem is that when we want to cook more elaborate meals, we never seem to have enough space to do our business.
Enter double islands – this involves (you guessed) bringing two islands in the kitchen. Before deciding whether this is the right choice for your kitchen or not, you need to determine all the advantages and drawbacks. This guide is here to help you out.
How many times have you had to go around your bigger kitchen island just to get to that space that you wanted to reach? Well, let‘s say that instead of one big island, you get two smaller ones. This way, whenever you want to pass, you will no longer have to go all the way around; you can simply pass through between them.
Are you planning to remodel your bathroom? If the answer is positive, then you should know that the shower room is a very important part of this area. If you’re going to remodel, then you need to select a fitting shower room, one that goes well with the surroundings.
So, how do you pick a suitable shower room so you’re making a good impact on the design of this area of the house? Let’s take a look at the different types of shower enclosures and see your options.
One of the most common types you will find is the shower cabin. It is found as one piece and made of premium acrylic. The great thing about it is that it comes with internal mirrors, a towel rail, seats, slider rail shower kit, and even adjustable body jets. As such, this shower room can give you an unmatched experience in terms of comfort and you’ll feel like you’re in paradise.
