After we took everything down, we began selecting materials, colors, and appliances to accommodate the lavish bathroom that the clients wanted. They chose a pea green color to paint the walls with, allowing sunlight to reflect off of the color and radiant a warm tone. The green is paired with neutral earth tones in the tiling, which softens and balances out the highlight of the color.
The construction process was quite elaborate, as we were starting fresh, in an entirely gutted space. We constructed the tub, which sits in the corner on the room, with a view out of the window. Then, we installed a glass encased shower at the opposite corner, fixed with multiple shower heads recessed into the ceiling and walls for extra luxury. The shower features a red shower bench that is bolted into the wall and folds up to free space inside the shower.
Since we took out the existing door, this allowed for more space for a comfortable, freeing place to shower or bathe in. The vanity compliments the wall color and the chrome applianes add to the overall look. Recessed lights above the shower and tub can create a warmer and more seductive look. Needless to say, the client was extremely pleased!

A recent remodeling project took the dRemodeling team to Drexel Hill to renovate a cramped, outdated bathroom. The homeowner wanted to update her drab bathroom and turn it into a luxurious, hotel-worthy space. Rich, warm tones combined with high-end materials easily turned this bathroom into a chic and sophisticated room that could easily be found in any 5-star hotel.

It’s 2012. New year, new beginnings, new statistics and ideas for home remodeling projects.
There has been a significant and noticeable shift in preferences with regard to new-home purchases from late 2011 and into the fresh beginnings of 2012. This purchasing impact is a result of the struggling economy, still-shrinking construction market, and the need and desire for smaller homes.
According to the National Association of Home Builders, builders and contractors expect newly built homes in 2012 to average between 2,000 and 2,150 square feet by 2015. That is over 10% smaller than previously estimated desired home sizes.
To maintain the consistency of simplicity and small-size, luxuries will likely fade out in home remodeling and practicality will move in. Formal living rooms are going by the wayside, making room for much smarter and multi-functional home layouts.
In 2012, you can expect to see a lot more of those once-forgotten small spaces: eat in kitchens, and large social areas that can double as office space and entertainment rooms. There’s going to be a decrease in the interest for remodeling or even building dining rooms and great rooms; these simply will become unnecessary.
“Keep the following tips in mind if you’re thinking of investing in an addition or a significant remodel:
* Select a professional contractor with experience, knowledge of local codes and a good reputation for quality work.
* Before you finalize your remodel decisions, research the improvements that will likely bring you the highest return on your investment. A minor kitchen remodel should return more than 70 percent of its cost at resale, according to the 2010-2011 Remodeling Magazine Cost vs. Value Report. Adding a bathroom pays back more than 53 percent.
* During the latest housing boom, remodels were all about big and bold. Now there is less emphasis on luxury and more on practicality. Take advantage of that trend, and you’ll make your home more competitive at resale, and your dollars will stretch a lot further.”
Heated floors are used more frequently in places like bathrooms or bedroom places where you want your feet to be warm. But it can be used in any room in your house and even out site. I have seen it in garages (to help melt the snow off of your car) or even in cold area they heat their sidewalks and parking lots so they never have to shovel.
There are benefits to heated floors other than keeping your feet warm after you get out of the shower. Compared to the usual forced air heating such as central air, radiant floor heating throughout your house can help you save on your monthly heating expenses. With floor heating you are able to heat only the rooms you are using with timers and to your desired temperature with giving you the option to make each room a different temperature. Also air quantity is much better than your typical forced air system because you’re not recalculating dust and spores. It’s more cost effective if the floor has a significant thermal mass such as a concrete slab.
