Remember when planning a bathroom remodeling project, remember to balance three key aspects—aesthetics, functionality, and maintainability. You want your new bathroom to please your senses, but also provide additional features that are easy to maintain on a daily basis!

When choosing colors for particular areas of your home, keep in mind the psychological effects of colors on your emotions. Warm colors like red, orange, and yellow can convey high energy, intensity, warmth, and comfort. While cool colors like green, blue, and purple, can help create a feeling of calm and serenity.

Before finalizing your materials for your project bring the samples home to view them in the space they are intended to be used. The light in the space and other materials around the samples can affect the look of the materials making them appear differently than in the showroom.

When adding a flex room to your home consider installing plumbing connections, extra wiring, and outlets, convenient stow-away elements like tuck-away beds or desks and shelving, as well as smart storage space. Flex rooms can then morph into a home office, guest room, playroom, exercise room, or a room for a home health aide as the needs of your family change.

When it comes to bathroom design nothing makes a bigger impression than tile—whether it’s on the floor, in the shower, or used for a decorative backsplash behind the sink. If you’re retiling a shower, be sure your new tile reaches all the way to the ceiling. This will create a much cleaner and more finished look.

Wall coverings are back and they are the best use of material in a house to soften a hard elevation, give it texture, and big bang for your buck.

Linen napkins make such a difference on a dining table. Vintage silver napkin holders with monogrammed names create a unique 
conversation starter.
