Project Spotlight: Newark, Delaware Luxury Kitchen Remodel
Posted: Thursday, August 21st 2014 in Remodeling
When our clients in Newark, Delaware approached us for a kitchen renovation, we set out to make the room design more practical with a newer and more stylish aesthetic. The project featured custom cabinetry, countertops, and appliances, with finishing touches taken care of from the tiling to the plumbing fixtures and beyond.
Custom Cabinetry & Countertops
We installed custom cabinetry that helped us create a more intelligent kitchen design with storage dispersed throughout the room. Inset Beaded Prescott Maple white cabinets by Decorá were used throughout the space. To maximize functionality, roll-out and tilt down trays were included in certain cabinet designs, along with trash can and spice rack pull outs, tray dividers, and Lazy Susans. A microwave drawer was installed as well for added convenience. Hardware by Top Knobs adds an elegant touch with easy-to-use cabinet handles in varying shapes and sizes.

Maximizing Functionality in the Kitchen
Posted: Thursday, July 24th 2014 in Remodeling
A More Practical Kitchen Design
New advances in technology and kitchen design have made things easier on the homeowner in more ways than one. With a smart kitchen design and the right features, you can now enjoy an easier cooking, cleaning, and food preparation experience—not to mention a more organized overall space. So if your current layout is lacking in functionality, now’s the time to consider an upgrade. We’ve got just the ideas to get you started!
Quartz is becoming a more popular choice over granite, and maintenance is a major reason for that. Quartz countertops are non-porous and virtually maintenance-free, so they’re perfect for a practical kitchen design. Unlike granite, they don’t have to be sealed and they don’t require routine maintenance every two years. Most manufacturers advertise that the only cleaning solution you’ll ever need is warm water and soap—and at Bath, Kitchen and Tile Center, we ... Read More

Quartz Countertops: the Next Big Thing?
Posted: Wednesday, May 21st 2014 in Countertops
For how popular granite has become in kitchen and bathroom remodeling, it is hard to remember that in 1994, just 20 years ago, the idea of using a natural stone for countertops was foreign to consumers. Granite was not only incredibly expensive at the time, but you would be lucky to find any real satisfying variation of colors available, as most locations only offered two or three different options. The granite that you could purchase was based upon where you lived, as importing/exporting anything outside of a local region was non-existent at the time.
At the turn of the century, however, you couldn’t count how many homeowners were replacing the solid-color laminate and acrylic countertops of the past with stunning and unique granite countertops, completely revolutionizing the remodeling market. Companies simply couldn’t provide enough granite to meet demands only months after granite was relatively irrelevant in the remodeling ... Read More
The Raised Dishwasher
Posted: Thursday, May 15th 2014 in Remodeling
Make kitchen clean-up easy with a raised dishwasher! It’s simple. By elevating your dishwasher just a few inches off the ground, you’ll never have to bend as far to load or unload the dishes—significantly reducing the strain on your back and knees! At the same time, it can reduce the time it takes to clean up for an easier cooking experience overall, making it the perfect choice for those of all ages, genders, and even individuals with disabilities.
Benefits of a Raised Dishwasher
A raised dishwasher, also known as an elevated dishwasher, offers many benefits. It’s a particularly perfect fit for the elderly, as well as for those who are pregnant or have disabilities that make bending down difficult or painful. But it’s also appealing for any homeowner who wants to improve the functionality and aesthetic of an existing kitchen design. Benefits of an elevated dishwasher include:
- Ease of use
