    Exploring Some of This Year's Hottest Bathroom Design Trends

    Last updated 3 days ago

    When a number of people catch on to a certain design because of its aesthetics or functionality, it becomes a trend. Even if you have the desire to create a unique and personal look, it’s helpful to look at trends when it comes to choosing themes and features for your remodeled bathroom. Read on to explore some of this year’s hottest bathroom design trends.

    Ledges

    Using ledges in the bathroom has become a common practice, and rightfully so; they can serve multiple purposes while still maintaining the aesthetics of the room. One place in particular where ledges are found is inside the shower. This ledge can be a hidden cabinet where your extra shampoo, conditioner, and loofas are stored. Those who are elderly or disabled can also sit on the ledges while taking a shower. Ledges may serve the same hidden cabinet purpose in other areas of the bathroom such as behind the vanity.

    Tiles

    Some bathroom design trends place less emphasis on functionality and instead focus on visual appeal. This year has seen bathrooms move past the traditional white and crème color scheme and land on matte tiles of ranging colors. These matte tiles are typically in shades of neutral colors like grey, but they may range in intensity from pale grey to almost black. The darker color combined with the soft finish of the matte tiles tend to be reminiscent of natural concrete. These tiles work best along the walls of the shower or on the ground.

    Black

    If you are not ready to move on to darker neutrals and would instead like to hold on to your whites and crèmes, consider adding hints of black here and there. The stark contrast is visually appealing and it adds a certain type of modern flair that many bathrooms are lacking.

    A Quick Glance at the Kitchen Design Process

    Last updated 10 days ago

    There are many factors to consider when it comes to designing a kitchen. It is a long process, but it can completely revitalize your home and create a brand new atmosphere that you will love. 

    As is the case with other major projects, the first step in designing a new kitchen is brainstorming. Look for inspiration in magazines, online, or by watching design programs on television. Consider the amount of people in your family and how they use the kitchen space; this will help you design your kitchen based on things like dining areas, message centers, and recycling habits. You will also have to think about other aspects of your kitchen including lighting and other aesthetics.

    What Bathroom Countertop Material Is Right for You?

    Last updated 17 days ago

    If you are looking into bathroom remodeling, one factor to consider is the type of bathroom countertop that suits your space. You can choose from a variety of different materials and styles, which gives you plenty of room for creativity. To help you pick the right countertop for your bathroom, here’s a look at some of the best bathroom countertop materials. 

    Ceramic

    One common theme in modern bathrooms is tiling over each wall. If your bathroom walls are tiled, consider complimenting them with a ceramic tile countertop. This type of countertop material is highly customizable and comes in a variety of different colors, sizes, and finishes. Not only can a ceramic tile countertop match the tiles on your bathroom walls, but also the tiles on your bathroom floor.

    Stone and Concrete

    Another highly customizable option for bathroom countertops is stone or concrete. This type of material helps to facilitate a modern aesthetic in your bathroom. And because of their natural appearance and the additional materials contained within, many stone and concrete countertops look unique. Even without additional materials, natural stone countertops made from granite or quartz provide an impressive, one-of-a-kind appearance.  

    Laminate and Wood

    A wooden bathroom countertop can help to keep the design of your house cohesive. However, it is important to make sure that a wooden bathroom countertop is properly finished in order to ensure that it is moisture resistant. Laminate countertops are available in a wide array of styles and tend to be much more versatile than their wooden counterparts.

    Last updated 23 days ago

    A newly renovated bathroom can provide the luxurious atmosphere that you have always dreamed of. It is important to plan your renovation in advance to make sure that everything goes smoothly. Watch this video for a look at the steps of planning bathroom renovations.

    Before you renovate your bathroom, you must decide how much money you are willing to spend on the project. After establishing a budget, measure the space and draw up a plan to make sure that everything that you have in mind will fit. Moving plumbing can be expensive, so avoid it if you can. Make a list of all the things you want to change in your bathroom and get an estimate from your contractor.

    Signs It's Time for a New Refrigerator

    Last updated 29 days ago

    A new refrigerator may seem like a hefty investment, but it may actually save you a great deal of money in the long run. Over time, newer appliances will pay for themselves, and a new refrigerator is no different. So, when is it time for a new fridge? Here are some signs to be on the lookout for. 

    Inefficient Sealing

    If your refrigerator does not seal properly, this may become a fatal problem. Inefficient sealing causes your refrigerator to work harder in order to keep your food cool because warm air from outside is making its way into the fridge. Combined with the cold air escaping the fridge, this can cause the compressor motor to burn out. Inspect the door frame of your fridge for condensation to see if this problem is affecting your appliance.

    High Energy Bills

    There are many factors related to your refrigerator that can lead to increased energy bills. These factors include faulty thermometers, overworked coils, and worn out compressor motors. If any of these conditions exist, your refrigerator will have to exert extra effort in order to keep your food sufficiently cooled; this means that it requires more energy in order to do its job. If you are noticing a spike in your energy bills despite the same amount of use of your appliances, it may be time to look for a new refrigerator.

    Leaks

    An obvious sign that you need a new refrigerator is leaking around the appliance. If you are noticing liquids pooling in, around, or under your fridge, something has gone wrong. This symptom could be due to a broken tube channel, a faulty heater, or improper insulation. The pooling of liquids in the vicinity of your appliance is a red flag that your refrigerator should be replaced.

    Is it time for you to purchase a new refrigerator? Call Kitchens of Colorado at (720) 420-1107. We are happy to serve the Colorado area with cabinets and other major appliances.
