Sheet backsplash is becoming very popular. The continuous material is very functional as it eliminates the need for grout, making cleanup super easy.

Biggest Remodeling Mistakes

After ten years in the business, I’ve been a part of a lot of remodeling projects. Three things come to mind that I wish I could tell everyone before they start:

2. Don’t look for the cheapest materials-you get what you pay for for the most part. Invest in quality.

3. Don’t go too trendy…the latest & hottest thing is usually short term. Go classic that will stand the test of time.

Spa Master Bath

by kathyregini | Comments Off on Spa Master Bath

The free standing tub is the main design element in this master bath, and I have to say this is one of my favorite master baths of all time. The sky lights, the wood and stone accents and the crisp white walls make it so welcoming. Just looking at it makes you relax!
