Transitional Bathroom Vanities – A Traditional Look With A Modern Feel

For the first time ever this year, transitional style surpassed traditional design as the most popular choice for bathrooms. In fact, the shift toward more contemporary styles is one of the most important bathroom trends for 2013. But what does that mean, exactly, and how does it apply to YOUR bathroom? Today I’d like to […]

No Flush Waterless Urinals From Waterless Co

The green movement is in full swing, especially when it comes to bathrooms. Homes and businesses across the country are switching to water saving options to try to reduce water consumption (and sewage expenses), but one of the best ways to do so is one you might not have even heard of. Waterless urinals dramatically […]

Japanese Soaking Tubs – The Art Of Japanese Bathing

The art and ritual of bathing varies widely the world over. In Japan especially, water is considered to be spiritually as well as physically cleansing – a belief which led to the development of a very different attitude towards bathing, different bathing rituals, and even different bath fixtures. The Japanese bathroom is very different from […]

Bistro Tables And Bar Sets – Tall Tables To Dress Up Your Dining

I’ve always loved bistro tables – you know, the tall, sometimes delicate tables that come to mind when you think of a Parisian cafe or maybe a trendy nightclub. They’re the kind of tables you see when you go out, but not often in the home. I think it’s a distinction worth breaking, so here […]

Hot Water Dispensers – A Dream Come True For Coffee And Tea Drinkers

Breaking news, guys! Okay, maybe just for me – but! I just found something really cool. Whitehaus has a full line of hot water dispensers.

In Floor Tubs – A Dream Spa Style For Your Bathroom

In my line of work, you see a lot of really beautiful bathrooms, from vintage to ultra modern and everything in between.  But there’s one design I don’t see very often, despite the fact that I fall in love with it all over again every time I do – in floor tubs. These are regular […]

Walk In Tubs – Everything You Need To Know Before You Buy

Major bathroom remodels are among the most popular (and most important) upgrades you can make to your home. But not all bathroom renovation is necessarily for style – for many, bathroom renovations add much needed accessibility. Especially for an aging population or for the disabled, the right bathroom upgrades and alterations can increase independence and […]

Ventless Fireplaces: An Elegant Modern Solution For Chimney-Free Homes

It’s that time of year again, folks. There’s a chill in the air, and at least in my part of the country we’ve started stealing glances at the thermostat. We’re headed straight into the season of pumpkin pies and tossing logs on the fire. But what if you don’t have a fireplace at all? It’s […]

2013 Kitchen Design Trends – Top Ten Kitchen Trends For The New Year

By and large, kitchen design trends are among the slowest changing trends there are, due in no small part, I’m sure, to the fact that kitchens are awful, expensive, time consuming, and invasive to re-do. But there’s been a gradual but major upheaval in kitchen design in the last few years, and a major change […]

Modern Bathroom Vanities For A Simple, Sophisticated Design

Regular readers of this blog will know that I have a very love/hate on-again off-again relationship with modern bathroom design. In a lot of ways, I think I’m a little too traditional to fall head-over-heels for a straight laced industrial modern design. It always strikes me as too cold, too impersonal – not exactly the […]
