Custom Cabinets Express Your Style

In the kitchen, in the bathroom or in any room of the house, a critical component is the cabinetry. Only custom cabinets give you the widest variety of finishes, doors and hardware that can add subtle beauty or dazzling color. Custom cabinetry gives you the freedom to express your style and Inspired Remodels can turn your dreams into reality.

Waypoint, KitchenCraft and Decora Custom Cabinets

These days you don’t need a carpenter to build your custom cabinets on-site. That means custom cabinetry is more affordable than ever before. Major brands such as KitchenCraft, Decora and Waypoint build your cabinetry off-site and then deliver it ready to install.

Whether it’s for the bathroom, kitchen or laundry room your custom cabinets offer more storage solutions than you will find at the big box home improvement stores. Just imagine a room where beauty and function are fused to perfection! Deep roll out trays and base waste basket units keep kitchens and baths organized and clutter-free. Scalloped deep roll out trays and tilt out trays store toiletries and personal care items out of sight, but never more than a fingertip away. Wine storage inserts store wine in the kitchen but are perfect for storing towels in the bathroom. You get the picture!  And if you don’t, a designer from Inspired Remodels can help you with a custom cabinet design that fits your needs and your budget. From Shaker to Farmhouse or Modern or French, there is a cabinet style and finish that expresses your personal style.

Why Custom Cabinets are Better than Stock

If you need special depth or height cabinets, you need custom cabinets. Stock cabinets are prebuilt in standard sizes. Custom cabinetry is only built once the order is placed. This gives you total freedom to get the cabinets you need to fit your space perfectly. You need custom cabinetry if you need:

  • flush toespace
  • matching interior finish
  • extended stiles
  • increased or decreased depth
  • increased or decreased height

In addition, when you go custom you get a greater variety of wood stock, doors, finishes and trims. Stock cabinets aren’t designed to last but a few years; many are made from particle board. Custom cabinets are made from quality materials and will last for many years. Using custom instead of stock just makes sense for your kitchen remodel.

Bathroom Designers Tips for a Spa-Like Bathroom

You don’t have to go to the spa to experience a spa-like retreat. If you follow these five tips by bathroom designers, you can have a spa at home.

FlooOrange County bathroom designers use faux wood ceramic tile to give warmth to bathroomsrs with Warmth

Spas are relaxing because they appeal to all of your senses. Achieve the yin yang of relaxing warmth and coolness with wood-like flooring.  Wood provides warm visual appeal, but it’s not practical for wet areas. Porcelain and ceramic tile that looks like hardwood is the answer. You get the look and feel of hardwood with the ease of maintenance of tile. It resists moisture, scratching and scuffing. It’s perfect for the bathroom. The tile can have a traditional tile surface or a woodgrain finish.

But that’s just the start. Use underfloor heating to keep bathroom chill at bay. Your toesies will be toasty with heated floors. Heating can be applied as part of a new floor or can be applied between floor joists to existing floors. It’s cost effective too. Just heat the bathroom when it’s in use.

Thirsty Towels

Be sure to set out plenty of towels. Don’t use just any towel. Splurge on high absorbency towels that dry fast. Eco Dry towels by Welspun are plush and wick water away from your skin then dry quickly on the towel bar. Dermatologists recommend you pat skin dry without rubbing. Eco Dry towels are perfect. For even more luxury, place towels on a towel warmer.

Frameless Shower Doors

bathroom designers and homeowners love frameless shower doorsEven the smallest spa appears spacious through judicious use of light and glass. You can make your bathroom look larger using the same tricks. So, ditch traditional shower doors (and the hassle of keeping sliding door tracks clean) and forgo shower curtains. Get frameless glass shower doors. Extends the shower seamlessly to the rest of the bathroom.  Look how this bathroom looks larger by the use of a frameless door.

Rainshower Heads

 Simulate the feel of showering in a rainstorm. Install a rain shower style showerhead. These heads are mounted on the wall or the ceiling. Water falls from overhead instead of a more vertical direction. You can get one the size of a dinner plate or a model with a removable handheld shower.  Most models have multiple settings from a gentle shower to an invigorating pulse.

Soaking Tub

A soaking tub can be the ultimate spa indulgence in your bathroom. When shopping, decide what features are important to you. Are arm rests or foot rests key?  Do you want contours? Don’t be shy about sitting in a tub in the showroom (dressed of course) to make sure the size is right. Speaking of size, make sure your hot water heater has capacity to fill the tub. Acrylic tubs are less expensive but cast iron stays warm longer.

Is Granite Gone from the Kitchen and Bathroom Remodeling Scene?

Granite has been a foundational finish in kitchen and bathroom remodeling since the late 1980’s. Once considered a must have material in any upscale project, not only has it gone mainstream; it’s heyday may be over.  Nobody will argue that marble isn’t beautiful. But as many homeowners have learned over the years, it is maintenance intensive.  Marble has also been proven to emit radon gas. That’s just a few of the reasons that materials that provide the same clean look are taking the place of marble.

kitchen and bathroom remodeling using engineered stone surfacesEngineered Stone

When you hear the term “engineered stone” you may think of cultured marble or Corian. Those while those are both are engineered stone surfaces  (“Corian” is actually a registered trademark of DuPont, not a real stone) they are not the only engineered stone materials made. The “quartz” countertops that are gaining popularity are actually engineered stone. Engineered quartz to be exact.

Engineered quartz is manufactured in a variety of colors and finishes. It is made by mixing ground quartz with polymers,  resins and pigments. The resulting material is as strong as stone, but much easier to maintain. Because it is man made, the pigments are mixed equally making for a more consistent product. 

You can use engineered quartz or any engineered stone product in your kitchen and bathroom remodeling project without worrying about matching slabs of stone. The look is consistent and seams are almost invisible.

It provides a hygienic surface because it is not porous. That’s important in a kitchen where food  is prepared and bathrooms that are exposed to bodily fluids. Engineered stones are tough, stain and scratch resistant and available in a dizzying array of finishes.

Concrete Countertops

Just as stained concrete is gaining in popularity as a floor finish, stained concrete is a rising star for kitchen and bathroom counters. Concrete can be surfaced in any color or pattern you can imagine.  There are concrete overlays that are indistinguishable from tile. All without the hassle of cleaning the grout.

Just look as this countertop.

Does this look like concrete to you?  Of course not, but it is. The surface has been highly polished to give that shine. Pigments were added to the concrete so the color and finish is now an integral part of the construction.

Because it is concrete, it was easily formed into the circular shape. That’s not a design that is easy to bring to life working with granite or stone, but because concrete is poured and shaped, anything is possible.
