Posted: Friday, December 19th 2014 in Remodeling
With each New Year comes new fads in home design, and 2015 is looking to be no different. Real estate experts at Zillow have released their annual survey, predicting that the bright colored rooms and accent walls of 2014 will be fading away as homeowners seek new ways to spruce up their spaces.
The upcoming year will also bring numerous home design trends of its own:

Maximizing Functionality in the Kitchen

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 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
