Kitchen and Bathroom Remodels
The two most remodeled rooms in a house are kitchens and bathrooms, respectively. They improve the function of the house as well as the form and value.
Kitchens are usually updated with new cabinets, floors and counter tops. Flooring is generally tile and with modern wood simulated tile, the sky is the limit with options. Old, outdated honey oak cabinets you find in most economic houses and track housing give way to dark tones, custom details such as corbels and fluted columns and soft close door and drawer hardware. Although marble isn't recommended in kitchens because it can stain easily, with new solid surfaces such as quartz, recycled marble, silestone, etc you have a plethora of choices.
Bathrooms, especially master bathrooms, can be depressing. From the fiberglass tub/shower surrounds to linoleum flooring (or worse, carpet) there is much left wanting. Upgrade to a porcelain shower surround and floor. porcelain is durable and available in so many options. Comfort height toilets are all the rage, why bend down so far when you don't have to? Throw in a new vanity with granite top and a framed mirror and now you have a bathroom you can enjoy.
