Bathroom Lighting

Lighting is important throughout the home, but one of the most important spaces to light properly is the bathroom. Unfortunately, bathroom lighting is often pushed to the side in the remodeling process in favor of more "fun" decisions like countertop selections and tile layouts. With bathrooms becoming more spa-like and less utilitarian, proper lighting is essential to making the most of the space...
kitchen remodel

This job is a kitchen remodel (with some surprise structural work) that took this kitchen from 1984 to the present. The homeowners bought this house knowing that it didn't fit their style, and they knew they wouldn't be able to call this house a true "home" until they could put their creative touches on it.

How to Style A Kitchen Like A Pro   The last step of a kitchen remodel is often the most overlooked one—styling your space.  By styling, I mean accessorizing the space and bringing it to life.

Blue Wallpaper in Bathroom

To Wallpaper or not to Wallpaper? Wallpaper is a subject that many homeowners don’t even want to discuss.  I think I know why: they’ve either tried to remove improperly installed paper that literally removed part of the wall with it, or they have an image burned into their memory of that velvet flocked floral wallpaper from their grandma’s house, or both.
