Install Kitchen Wall Tiles

1. A Powerful Intensity

Contrasting colors and designs create a dramatic effect. Choose from numerous patterns in wall tiles. Do you fancy flowers or checks on solid backgrounds? Revive the stale kitchen walls with a glowing effect for a complete makeover of the environment.

2. Create a potent kitchen Character

If backsplashes are installed up to the ceiling, it does create a smashing surrounding. Along with the power, the height of the room looks so much greater. Liven up that otherwise dreary space. Ceiling height backsplashes merge all the kitchen features artistically and regularity replaces the mess.

3. Eternal values Reign

Subway tiles truly represent timeless aspirations, having been around for so long across generations. Subways surround us everywhere in the city and not only in kitchens where they became so common. A classic smartness comes to the home under the impact of the subways. Get them in large sizes too that create altered ideas of space in fancy kitchens.

4. A Rural Effect

Going white all the way calls for some glossy effects. Blend the tiny tiles with larger white tiles to bring depth. Let the lighting focus on the shining mosaic tiles. Stone creates perfectly natural looks, modern too.

5. Wood Finish

The natural wood look is an eternal favorite. It is a calming effect that ceramic wood look tiles promote, easily cleaned too. Cabinets of solid colors would create an esthetic kitchen to elevate the soul.

Perfect Bathtub

What is better after a long hard day than a soak in a nice, deep, warm tub of water? Not a lot according to a lot of us which is why bathtubs come in so many shapes and sizes, so they’re perfect for any space.

Of course the more space you have the more options for that perfect tub you will have. We’ve all seen the glossy magazine pictures of a massive bathtub in the middle of a huge bathroom. While we may not all be going that crazy, bathtubs can still make a statement.

Stand alone tubs can make that statement but will also need further plumbing than those that sit against a wall. Some come with those lovely clawfeet that invoke such romantic images, and some are beautifully designed vessels that offer a modern, sleek take on the tub design.

Then there are the tubs that are seen in the majority of houses, with the bath against the wall, usually with a tub surround of some sort that hides all of the pipes and makes a statement of its own. Here the possibilities are endless, you can fancy it all up with different tiles or surrounds and of course change the taps and you’ve changed the whole look of the bathroom. If, down the line you get sick of the tiles or surround then you simply change that out and give your room a whole new look, while keeping the tub in place.

Triangular tubs are meant to be used in small spaces as they are space saving in design. What they lack in size they make up for in depth and they can usually sit additional people rather than the one of regular tubs. They usually sit against two walls with the plumbing hidden underneath and behind the wall so there is no need for additional plumbing work.

Choosing Style for Bathroom

This outdated dark bathroom and vanity combo was in need of a major overhaul, for Sure! From the over-sized garden tub, tiny enclosed shower, right down to the outdated wall paper there was definitely room for improvement.

The plan was to move the shower from the current location to the garden tub Area giving the client a ton of room. Incorporating a full bench Seat along the largest wall just beneath the massive window, which was left to keep the natural light source. Adding not one but two large niches inside the shower for essentials, one complete with recessed LED lights was just what was needed. Changing the existing overhead light to a recessed LED light also complimented the spacious new shower.

Installing a flat rock on the shower floor accompanied by a 12 x 24 tile installed on a vertical pattern on these massive showers walls gave the illusion of there being more space. Granite seat top, along with niche and curb top to match makes for a very clean look. Glass shower frameless panel sitting atop a tree ft knee wall trimmed out with metal trim also gave a sharp clean finish to a stunning shower.

Bringing the boardwalk feel into this bathroom with a wood look 6×36 plank grey washed tile certainly proofed effective with our beach themed design. The horizontal shiplap wall also incorporated the look of an exterior fence complete with the boat tie downs for towel hooks. Topping this portion of the renovation off with a blue/ grey paint proved to be spot on.

Continuing the floor into the vanity area once again gave a more spacious feel to this bathroom vanity combo. Clients decision to continue with same choice of granite for vanity top keeping with the chrome toned plumbing fixtures really complimented the already beautiful renovation.

Need a New Roof

1) The Roof Inspection

After you choose a quality roofing company to do business with, they will start the entire process with a full-service roof inspection. During this inspection, the contractors will be closely examining and assessing the condition of all roofing components, including the gutters, gutter screens, downspouts, flashings, skylights (if you have any), vents, and more. They will have their eyes open for storm damages, weakened or vulnerable spots, cracks, holes, water leaks, and more. They will even inspect all areas of the siding.

At the conclusions of your home’s inspection, the contractors will sit down with you to discuss their findings and propose a range of options. Often times, companies will take photos to show clients the damages they find. If you choose to move forward with their services, you will finish this step by signing an agreement that allows them to get to work, as well as, authorizes them to assist you with your insurance claim.

2) The Insurance Claim

For roofing systems with storm damage, you will need to contact your insurance company to file a claim. The insurance company will schedule a time for an adjuster to come to your home and perform an inspection of their own. Once the degree of storm damage is agreed upon by both contractor and adjuster, an estimate for the cost of repairs is finalized. From there, it takes anywhere from 2 to 3 weeks to receive literature in the mail regarding the estimate and agreement, as well as, the first of two payments.

For those with mortgages, it is common for the mortgage company’s name to be on the insurance check too. If this happens, you will need them to endorse the check, as well as yourself, before it can be deposited into your account. If rising costs occur during the roof repair or replacement process, either from missing something during the inspection or unexpected labor and material needs, you may need to file what is called a supplemental claim with your insurance company.

3) The Renovations

The final step following the inspection and insurance claim process is the actual renovations. A roofing company generally provides homeowners with a checklist of what to expect during the process, including time lines, landscape protection, the construction process, and more. A trusted roofing will fix your roof according to manufacturers’ warranty specifications and NRCA standards, and implement a thorough cleanup once the job is complete. They will even provide post-service checkups and warranties.
