2018 Kitchen Flooring Trends

With budget and beauty just a few of the factors to consider, choosing a flooring material for your new kitchen design can be a challenge.

As one of the most-used rooms in your home, kitchen floors not only have to look good but should be durable enough to withstand the wear-and-tear of constant foot traffic and be resistant to spills and stains. Continue reading 2018 Kitchen Flooring Trends

Create an Oasis in Your Home Bath with a BainUltra Freestanding Tub

Who needs a weekend away at a spa when you can enjoy the benefits of a therapeutic bath in your own home?

Homeowners renovating their bathrooms are choosing to remove their big corner tubs — and not only to allow room for a bigger and more luxurious shower — but to create space for a sleeker freestanding tub.

As the pioneer and inventor of the air-jet bath, BainUltra knows a thing or two about how to relax in style. They recently introduced two free-standing tubs to their collection: Scala, a series with modern design and classic elegance; and a larger, two-person version of their Evanescence Oval.

SCALA

“This freestanding bathtub has an aesthetic refinement that translates into a contemporary version of the Rococo-style bathtub on lion’s feet. The name Scala was inspired by the ‘Teatro alla Scala’ – the 200+-year-old famous opera house in Milan. As the audiences of the theater revelled in inspiring performances, so too will bathing in the Scala take you away to a world of refined and soothing luxury.”

EVANESCENCE 7440

This new larger model is the newest addition to the Evanescence collection, an invitation to turn your relaxation space into a veritable sanctuary of elegance and wellness. A two-person tub that reflects the same refined design of slim walls and high headrests with a slightly curved centre to facilitate getting in and out of the bathtub. All without compromising the benefit of the hydro-thermo massage.

CITTI

No room for a freestanding tub? Make the most of a small space with Citti, BainUltra’s therapeutic bath designed to accommodate urban living. Citti can be installed in an alcove (between three walls) and allows for the enjoyment of multiple therapeutic experiences.

Kitchen Design Deconstructed

With spring just around the corner, and after months spent inside, homeowners are beginning to emerge from their wintery cocoons with a new-found resolve to change their living space.

What was the final straw? It’s difficult to say. Perhaps it was the overcrowded disorganization of entertaining friends and family over the holidays, or just too many hours spent indoors with a less-than-functional living space. Whatever the reason, it seems homeowners are often ready to renovate once the warmer days of March and April roll around. Continue reading Kitchen Design Deconstructed

Decluttering and Increased Storage Remained a Priority for Homeowners in 2017

A recent study by Houzz U.S. gave us a peek inside the design aspirations of over 1,700 homeowners who are currently undergoing or have completed a kitchen renovation. It seems the biggest design hurdle that homeowners would like to address continues to be decluttering countertops and adding additional storage.
