There was a time where having at least one bathroom with a tub was a necessity. It was “the kids’ bathroom” and was expected in new construction. In recent years, however, the trend in bathroom renovation is to replace the tub/shower combination with a walk-in shower, especially in bathrooms with limited space. There are Pros and Cons each, so let’s look at both options so you can make an informed decision as to which is right for you and your family.
The new year is inevitably the time you will read about what’s “hot” and what’s “not” in kitchen design. What I find amusing is how often the “experts” contradict each other. I just read an article where an “expert” firmly stated that the all-white kitchen is “out” and then followed it up with another “expert” stating how all-white kitchens are here to stay. It’s no wonder that homeowners get so overwhelmed when it comes to designing their kitchen remodel!
It’s an age-old question when it comes to a home remodel. What is more important, Quality or Price? Let’s face it, home renovation and remodeling can be expensive and unless you have unlimited funds, most people need to stick to a budget. When faced with a choice – whether it’s flooring, fixtures, cabinetry, or contractors – the temptation is to go with the cheaper option. If you are planning on selling your house soon, that may make sense, but lower cost does not always equal saving money, at least in the long run. That is why you should always choose quality over price. Let’s look at a few examples.
Building your dream house is as much work for you as it is for the builder! You are going to spend most of your time planning, budgeting, selecting, changing, stressing, and learning. Undoubtedly, you will spend countless hours researching and will get more advice (mostly unsolicited) from friends and family than you’ll ever want. But if you work with the right design-builder (like LBK!), then it can be a truly satisfying process and, in the end, you will have the home you’ve always wanted.
Trends and styles for kitchens and bathrooms come and go. What is popular with designers and in home magazines one year can look cliché or dated five years later. With that in mind, when it comes time to remodel a kitchen or bathroom, homeowners often look to classic, timeless designs that age gracefully, won’t go out of style, and not harm the resale value of their home. But “classic” doesn’t have to mean “boring” or “traditional.” Here are some variations on classic tile designs that are stylish but will never look dated
One of the most common concerns for homeowners looking to upgrade and remodel their kitchen is finding a builder that can see their vision and give them what they want. They know they need a new kitchen; they know what features they want and don’t want; they have a good sense of the style but are open to suggestions, but they are not confident a contractor can understand and execute their dream. Relax. You are not alone, and we are here to help.
