Kitchen & Bath Modeling

What You Need to Know About Kitchen and Bath Remodeling

Your kitchen and bath are two of the most-used rooms in the home. Most families will start and end their day together in the kitchen, while the bathroom is the prized retreat where you can rest and recuperate from the stresses of the day.

However, no family stays the same forever. You may find that your needs for your kitchen and bath change over time. You may want new appliances or fittings, or you may want to improve the functionality of these spaces.

A kitchen and bathroom remodel can also add a lot of value to your home. These two rooms have a lot of influence over buyers’ interest, and having a stylish, functional space can do a lot to cover slight imperfections across the rest of the home.

No matter your reasons, remodeling kitchens or bathrooms is a large project requiring a team of experts. Taking some time to plan will help ensure that you get the kitchen and bathroom remodel of your dreams.

Consider Function

The first step of any kitchen/bath remodeling project is to consider how you use the space and what annoyances you have with your current setup. For instance, is your bathroom too small for two or more people? Or do you want your bathroom to be a retreat where you can relax for hours in the tub?

Similarly, if you don’t cook often, you don’t need a kitchen with the latest and greatest appliances and fittings. However, if you are a dedicated cook, get a feel of the flow of your current kitchen and what you could do to improve it.

In both a kitchen and bathroom remodel, it’s also a good idea to consider storage space. Custom cabinets and smart storage solutions can ensure that you’ve got enough space for your everyday stuff and for things that you’ll accumulate in the future.

In terms of kitchen design, the main idea is one of flow. Keeping the triangle between the sink, fridge, and stove clear can make navigating the space much easier, and keeping the triangle small makes cooking more convenient.

By keeping usability in mind at all times, you’ll end up with a kitchen and bath that you’ll love to use. Many homeowners deal with small frustrations in their kitchen and bathroom layouts, and you’ll be amazed at the impact a better space will have on your mindset.

Choose the Right Materials

While everyone wants a premium styling kitchen and bath, you still have to keep your budget in mind. When choosing materials, focus on function before getting into the details of styling and aesthetics.


Kitchens often have a lot of foot traffic during the day, while bathrooms don’t. These factors will influence the type of floor that you can use for both. Kitchens require flooring materials that are durable, easy to clean, and have minimal maintenance. In bathrooms, you can get away with slightly more delicate materials, but they’ll need to be water-resistant and easy to clean as well.


Everyone dreams of having stylish granite countertops in every space, but the truth is that granite is expensive, heavy, and prone to staining due to its porous nature. While it remains popular, it’s a good idea to investigate alternatives that may work better for your kitchen and bath.

Fixtures and Fittings

Many modern fixtures and fittings use new technologies to deliver a better experience. Most faucets are water-wise, while appliances have dramatically reduced their power draw. When choosing your fixtures and fittings, consider their functionality and how they fit with the rest of your kitchen/bath remodeling plans.

Advantages of a High-Quality Basement Remodel

Taking the time to do a proper basement remodel can have many more advantages than just having extra living space. Here are some of the perks that you can enjoy with your newly finished, modern basement.

Save on Your Power Bill

Basements already have pretty good insulation due to being in the ground. By adding some extra insulation, you can have a room that is easy to cool during summer and heat during winter, resulting in comfortable temperatures year-round.

Higher Home Value

Extra rooms are always a good selling point. A high-quality basement remodel can add a lot of value and interest to your home while attracting many more interested buyers.

Protect Your Home Against Water Damage

If the main source of water ingress is from your basement, then the waterproofing will have a dramatic difference on the rest of your home.
