Bathroom Makeover

If you want to add appeal to your home, look no further than your bathroom.

Bathrooms are not what they were 20 years ago. They have gone from functional rooms to almost a relaxing spa.

In addition, some other brighter tones may be used to create visual interest, depending on what you might prefer to have added in your home.kitchen designIn a renovation, the surfaces of work counters can also be changed to look and feel more modern and to add efficiency. Having granite or one of the modern equivalents will enable the cook to cut up vegetables directly on the counter instead of having to use a chopping board. Texture is another aid to design. This can be incorporated with striking accents like a series of rounded or straight edges on the ends. This could be especially effective if you have a kitchen island with exposed ends that are highly visible.
