How To Remodel and Design A Highly Functional Laundry Room

Advice on designing an easy to use laundry room that looks fantastic

For many families, the laundry room is kind of an afterthought. You probably don’t spend a lot of time in the laundry, unless of course, you have a house full of kids, then the time you do spend in there needs to be quick, easy and efficient.

We all need to do laundry eventually, and if you have a washer/dryer in your home, it’s often tucked away in a utility closet or a corner of the basement. Creating and designing a functional, dedicated laundry room takes some thought. Once you’ve set up a counter to fold clothes, some storage for supplies and maybe room for an ironing board and hanging clothes, you’ll begin to understand all of the benefits of creating a designed and dedicated space to do this most mundane of chores. In fact, with a little planning and thought, you can have a laundry room that’s not only functional but fun! Looking for home design inspiration? Click Here

Here are some tips and elements to consider when creating the perfect laundry room!

• Don’t Overlook Storage Space! – Detergent, fabric softener, dryer sheets, stain spray, bleach, irons, ironing boards, clothing steamers all are used in the laundry. You’ll want to store them, and you’ll need cabinets and shelves to do it! Don’t forget to include hanging racks for ironed shirts and drip racks for sweaters and drip dry clothing.

• Make Sure You Include Proper Lighting – Laundry rooms are often located in a spare utility room or closet, or in the basement many times without any windows or natural light. If you’re only dropping your clothes into the washer, you might just need a small light, but if you’re planning on sorting, cleaning stains, or ironing, you’ll need some task lighting. Natural light is always the best, so if you’re considering converting a spare room into a laundry room, natural light is best. Overhead or recessed lighting is the next best thing.

Remember to Consider the Water! – It’s necessary and often not thought about, but you don’t only need it to do the wash, it can pose a danger as well. If there’s a plumbing problem, you can experience extensive damage to your home. If you’re converting a room or starting from scratch, always make sure to keep the drain accessible, and include an emergency water shut-off valve or system and make it easy to find and operate. You never plan on a flood, but if you have one, make sure you plan and have proper precautions in place.

• Consider Your Work Flow – Your design should take into account how you work and focus on assisting you with the task. Before you, design and layout typically space, consider how laundry will flow into and out of your space. Will you use laundry baskets, or install a chute system from the second-floor bedrooms, bathroom or hallway directly into the laundry room in the basement if possible. Think about how you normally work and your family’s needs. Then create a space that will work out with your normal flow.

• Install Proper Ventilation – Your dryer requires proper ventilation to operate. Usually via a hose that vents out of your home. However, ventilation fans and windows can help to keep your laundry room cool and dry. The combination of water, heat and the action of your washing machine can cause increased humidity in the room. Without proper ventilation, you can be susceptible to mildew or worse, mold! Even with modern appliances. Make sure to take ventilation into account when designing your space.

Creating a formal, well-designed laundry room is a great addition to any home. While you can have fun with the design and make it an aesthetically, exciting part of your living space, make sure you prioritize functionality over anything else. The thing to remember is that the function of your laundry room is to make your chores easier and provides plenty of space to work. Whether you’re building a new laundry room or remodeling an existing space, make sure your design team has the experience in place, and the understanding of your family’s lifestyle to ensure that you will create a space that is functional and you enjoy working in!

There are a huge variety of shower heads, and systems to choose from regarding style, finish, and function. The key is to focus on the features you want to narrow down the many choices available to you.

While there are many variations, there are basically two types of shower heads – fixed and handheld. A fixed shower head is mounted to the wall or ceiling as a permanent fixture. They are also the most frequently installed. They come as a single handle, two handle or three handle systems.

A handheld shower head is connected to the unit using a flexible hose or tubing allowing for freedom of motion when in the shower. Handheld shower heads are ideal for older adults with mobility issues and easier bathing of babies and pets. They also make cleaning the tub and shower a breeze!

Along with a fixed or handheld system, you’ll have some other factors to consider that can help you decide which shower, shower head, or system is right for you.

Rainfall Shower Heads: A rainfall shower head provides a relaxing rain-like experience. Usually fixed to the ceiling, it will typically have a large surface area with a large number of perforations. This gives the effect of water “raining” down in a large quantity, at lower pressure. Rainfall heads are often combined with other fixtures for a luxurious spa-like experience.

Shower Panels: Shower panels typically consist of several different jets on a single panel, or strategically distributed throughout the shower area. This is a modern technological experience that can be exceptionally relaxing and invigorating!

Multifunction: Multifunction shower heads provide a customizable bathing experience. Typically handheld and adjustable, the provide multiple settings that can be changed, including settings for pulsating massage, and low-flow pressure. This style is ideal for families.

Handheld: If you’re planning on aging in place, consider a handheld shower head. These heads detach from the wall allowing them to reach anywhere in the tub. These are perfect for people who suffer from injuries, arthritis, or mobility issues. They’re also perfect if you sit when bathing. They typically have higher water pressure than a rainfall head so if you like s hard stream of water, this could be the right choice for you.

Choosing a shower head can be a lot of fun! Do your research. Visit plumbing stores, gather information online, speak to a remodeling expert and make sure that your home’s plumbing system can accommodate your choice. Some larger systems may require additional plumbing or drainage so speak with your design build contractor before you buy anything.

Seven Subway Tile Substitutes For a Kitchen Renovation

7 Kitchen Renovation Ideas For Something Other Than A Subway Tile Kitchen Backsplash.

Today, many kitchen designers are using subway tile in their kitchen renovations. A subway tile backsplash offers a clean, modern look and it comes in a variety of colors that can work to create a beautiful focal point in any kitchen. While subway tile is functional and looks great, if you’re looking for something a bit different, yet just as functional, today you have more choices than ever before. From natural stone to beautiful mosaic, to the latest photo-printed glass, the possibilities are almost endless!

Your backsplash is one of the most important elements in your kitchen design. It’s a focal point that is not only functional but can establish the style of your entire room. Whether your backsplash goes to the bottom of your cabinets, all the way to the ceiling, or somewhere in between, the following materials can work to add an exciting, unique look to your kitchen renovation.

The Most Popular Alternatives To Subway Tile for your Kitchen Renovation

While ceramic tile in all its forms remains the most popular choice for a kitchen backsplash, there are many alternative materials that offer the durability and functionality of tile along with a unique look. Your choices range from manmade materials like glass or stainless steel to natural stone. Here are some of the most attractive alternatives to subway tile for your kitchen’s backsplash

  • Tumbled Travertine — Tumbled travertine or tumbled marble is a material which is created by tumbling the stone along with sand to create a softened look. Because each stone tile is unique, these tiles offer a less uniform appearance that can add a strong visual element to your kitchen design.
  • Full Granite — Granite provides a smooth surface that is virtually seamless when created using the same slab as your countertops. It offers a continuous flow from the counter, up and is an excellent look. Other natural and engineered stones like Silestone, Quartz, and soapstone are also common. For a more exotic look consider elegant marble or onyx for your backsplash!

  • Glass — For a wonderful contemporary look, that’s on the cutting edge of modern design look no further than glass! Glass tile and glass mosaic has been increasing in popularity either as part of a mixed material backsplash. For modern kitchens, a solid slab glass backsplash can be custom made to fit any wall, and it looks stunning!

  • Metal — Decorative metal like copper, tin and metal tile is also a growing trend. Metal tiles often come with pressed patterns or sleek patinas that can make them overpowering so be careful.
  • Wood — As long as you avoid the areas behind the sink and cooktop, wood can provide a warm, inviting appearance. For a country or cottage style kitchen renovation, consider a beadboard backsplash for a period look.

  • Stacked Stone – In a rustic kitchen, nothing seems quite as appropriate as a stacked stone backsplash. It can add a real impact and is available in some different stones like slate, marble, bluestone and more.

Of Course, There Are Other Types of Ceramic Tile…

…besides subway tile! Ceramic tile is easy to install, easy to maintain and easy to clean. It’s available in a wide variety of shapes, styles, sizes, and colors. You can use tile to create patterns, mosaic designs, murals, and abstract designs. While subway tile is a popular trend, with ceramic and porcelain tile you have a wealth of options that can add a unique focal point to your kitchen renovation and design.

The best thing you can do is educate yourself when it comes a time in the kitchen renovation process to choose your backsplash material. Look online, visit tile stores and big box home improvement stores to get gain an understanding of the options available. Then speak with your designer or design-build contractor. They can help to match your taste and style to your kitchen design and narrow your choices.

What To Know About Choosing Kitchen Pendants for Island Lighting

Remodeling Advice on Kitchen Pendants for Lighting an Island

With the growing trends of kitchen islands and open concept floor plans, pendant lighting has become a popular choice for homeowners when renovating their kitchens. As the kitchen’s role has changed from a place to prepare meals, into an interior focal point and gathering spot, kitchen pendants can help to define your space, provide comfortable lighting and offer a dramatic visual impact that can establish your home’s decor.

A kitchen lighting plan consists of several different types of lighting, each with its own purpose. Task lighting is placed in work areas to provide adequate illumination. Decorative lighting includes the chandelier over the eat-in-kitchen table, ambient lighting, for example, under cabinet lighting and accent lighting to highlight elements of the room are all included in a complete lighting plan.

In the kitchen pendants are multi-functional. They can work as task lighting. They can also provide ambient lighting and set a mood when controlled by a dimmer switch. Today, you have a wide variety of attractive designer kitchen pendants that can also function as decorative lighting and help to define your space when used in an open concept home.

Island light fixture – By Joseph & Berry remodel-dallas

Here’s how to choose the perfect kitchen pendants for your kitchen renovation.

Three Tips For Choosing the Perfect Kitchen Pendants

With the wide variety of choices available today, you need to define your needs regarding both form and function. Before you begin shopping:

  • Assess your current decor – Begin by visualizing your space and create a picture of what you’d like to achieve. Modern pendants in a traditional kitchen won’t always work. Look for lights that fit your style, home’s décor and the statement you’re looking to make. Dark colors are easier to clean than lighter ones and remember the size should be proportionate to the room and number of pendants you use.
  • Determine how many lights you’ll need – For space over 4 feet use multiple pendants. 60-75 watts are recommended for every 20 inches of counter space. When hanging lights stick to the “rule of three.”. An odd number of fixtures provides a sense of balance and visual appeal. Of course, if three lights are too few and five is too many, even numbers are ok for practical reasons.
  • How high should you hang them? – The light should be close enough to adequately light the space while providing an unobstructed view both when sitting and standing. As a general rule, this means anywhere from 28 to 38 inches above the table or island. If they are going to hand freely, they should be at least 72 inches from the floor.

Picking Your Fixtures

First, you need to define your needs. Do you need to light a work area or are you looking to set a mood? You can combine functions by placing your lights on a dimmer switch. They can function as task lighting when needed, and adjusted to provide mood lighting when desired.

You have several choices when it comes to both function and design. Low voltage pendants use a smaller bulb and can save on space. They also offer the benefit of being considerably less expensive than full-sized kitchen pendants. If you are seeking task lighting, the low voltage might not be for you. Low voltage pendants are more atmospheric or decorative.

You also have choices in lighting shades. Translucent shades filter light. This means that along with casting light downwards (or upwards) they also “glow.” If you are seeking more directed light, solid shades focus the light better.

LED lighting is a growing trend and may be an excellent choice for homeowners who are looking to add a pop of color to their lighting. LED lighting provides more vivid color, more color options, are extremely energy efficient and stay cool to the touch.

There are three basic types of pendant lighting that offer a significant amount of design flexibility. Downward facing shades can direct light to an area and are excellent as task lighting. Inverted pendants focus the light upwards and can make a beautiful design statement as ambient lighting. And finally, mini-pendants which are a smaller version are more ornamental.

Pendants lights are a perfect addition to any kitchen lighting plan. If you define your needs and consider your space and décor, with a little research, you can pick the perfect kitchen pendants for your remodeling project! If you’re not sure what to choose, speak with your kitchen designer or design-build firm. They can help direct you to the perfect choice for your new dream kitchen!

High-end renovations can cost anywhere from $80,000 to $250,000 or more depending on the size of your space and the scope of the work.Working with a design-build company means you can expect to end up with the kitchen of your dreams. While kitchen design and aesthetics are important, functionality is the driving factor behind successful kitchen renovations. Good design is more than a professional Wolf range, exotic zebra wood cabinets, and high-end Ann Sacks backsplash tile.

The process begins by assessing your needs. Visit kitchen showrooms, see products up close and begin to assemble ideas and outline the top priorities for your new space. Good kitchen design is the most critical part of the process, more so than any room in your home. What follows are some tips for your kitchen design and layout. These ideas will help ensure a successful kitchen remodel.

PRELIMINARY SPACE-PLANNING AND SCHEMATIC DESIGN

The planning and schematic design phase is the most important aspect of any kitchen remodel. Your kitchen can be filled with top of the line appliances, beautiful materials and custom built, solid-wood cabinets, but if the layout doesn’t work, it’s not a good design. In the kitchen, more than any other room in your home, a solid space plan and flow are crucial. Anyone who has ever struggled in a poorly designed kitchen knows this.

Your kitchen design can include moving or opening walls, adding an addition and relocating infrastructure like plumbing, windows, electricity, and doors. A qualified contractor will take the time up front to create a schematic plan and an accurate estimate of all costs. This allows you to adjust both the design and budget as needed before construction begins.

FOUR STEPS TO A SOLID KITCHEN DESIGN

Your kitchen design should encompass four stages before construction begins. By taking the time to plan and budget properly, you can eliminate change orders which can be costly and delay your remodels completion. Here are the four steps for an effective design.

1. Develop a plan for space. Start with a wish list and inspirational images. You can go to sites like Houzz for inspiration. This can help you get started and can give you a starting point for discussions with your design-build contractor. Start by focusing on the space itself, before you get caught up in what it will look like aesthetically. The function should come first! Will you be opening walls? Do you want an island or an L shaped counter? Or a galley kitchen? Where the pots and pans will go isn’t important…yet.

2. Put together your budget. Once you have a space plan begin to establish your budget. This is the point where it will all start to come together. The more accurate your space plan, the more accurate the preliminary budget will be. At this stage, your budget can change as you select materials for cabinets, countertops, tile and flooring.

3. Blueprints, elevation plans, and 3D renderings. Now that your plan is solid, work with your designer to flush it out aesthetically. Drawings can help you visualize what the finished space will look like, cabinets, flooring, countertops, hardware, fixtures, etc. This is beyond the functional; this is the stage to be creative.

4. Choose materials and finishes. Now that you’re at the drawing stage you can begin to visualize what materials and finishes will go in the space as well as the proportion of those materials.

By the end of the kitchen design process, you should have a final budget, scope of work and schedule for construction.

KITCHEN LAYOUT TIPS

Your designer will understand all of the technical aspects of kitchen design. Your space will be designed to maximize safety and functionality. Keep these National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) guidelines in mind when working with your designer.

• If your kitchen has three work centers, the sum of the distances between them should be no more that 26 feet. No leg of the work triangle should be less than four feet or more than nine feet. The distances between the three primary work centers (cooking, clean-up, and prep) from the “kitchen triangle.”

• No major traffic patterns should cross through the kitchen triangle.

• The width of the work aisle (between the perimeter counter and island for example) should be at least 42 inches for one cook, and at least 48 inches for multiple cooks.

• If your kitchen only has one sink, locate it adjacent to or across from the cooking area.

• Never separate work centers. A full-height and full-depth objects like a pantry cabinet or refrigerator should not separate two primary work centers.

Joseph & Berry Remodel | Design Build, a prestigious luxury home remodeling firm based in Plano, Texas, helped their client recreate their cherished memories with an unforgettable bathroom remodel. As a result, the May-June, 2015 project helped Joseph & Berry earn a prestigious 2016 NARI annual CotY award.Joseph & Berry Wins 2016 NARI Annual CotY Award The CotY (Contractor of the Year) Awards are presented each year by NARI (National Association of The Remodeling Industry) to its members who have demonstrated outstanding work through their remodeling projects.

Plano Home Remodeler Joseph & Berry Wins 2016 NARI Annual CotY Award

“We are extremely humbled and thrilled that NARI has deemed our remodeling project worthy of this esteemed reward,” said Joseph Tsedaka. “The bathroom remodeling project for which we were honored was all about resurrecting treasured memories for our client. Our bathroom owners had one wish on mind, to relive their magical far East honeymoon all over again each and every day.”

Joseph & Berry were able to successfully restore those colors, smells, and sensations based on the client’s visual memory since their honeymoon picture album was lost during various relocation over the years. They successfully stretched their materials and used a creative approach to make do with a challenge of $25,000.

“We were absolutely thrilled when they told us that we made their most intimate memory into reality because that was our main goal,” said Mr. Tsedaka. “We also created a relaxing gateway retreat in which they can start and finish their day, and created a unique room with local orientation for future resale success.”

 

Joseph & Berry initiated new construction to extend the client’s standing shower and maximized their storage space by changing an existing Jacuzzi into a bathtub. This enabled them to create a functional master bathroom and refresh its overall look and appeal.

 

“We changed the room’s layout by installing a sink and vanity across from the bathtub to maximize space usage,” said Mr. Tsedaka. “We utilized the existing mirror and replaced the plumbing. The solid wood custom-made vanities with new granite countertops and dark solid wood shelves created multiple storage spaces.

In addition, the wood for tiles and accents was handled in a special way to seal it to maximize water resistance. Dark stone tiles were added to enhance the romantic environment, and new glass doors, luxury water fixtures including a double shower rain head and matching faucets added a high-end look and feel.

The bathroom’s overall appeal was significantly enhanced by a new light wood plank-look floor, and its texture was smoothed over by a fresh coat of natural paint in relaxing colors.”
