There is a huge difference between a commercial space and your home, your business flooring has a higher volume of traffic. For this reason alone using tiles are a better choice. When you see shops, office suites or restaurants use wood, carpet, vinyl or laminate for their flooring they are aware that portions of the flooring will need to be replaced after years of use.
A kitchen is one of the central components of a home. Families gather there for daily meals as well as large family events. The flooring must be able to withstand frequent foot traffic, dropped dishes, and silverware not to mention food and drink spills. However, the kitchen flooring must also have a pleasing aesthetic that coordinates with the rest of the house. Before you start weighing the most popular varieties of kitchen flooring, review a few key factors that go into the decision of choosing the right kitchen flooring for your home. Read More
Part 2 of Kitchen Remodels
In this section, we are going to talk about kitchen sinks! A new sink can be the focal part of your kitchen. There are so many different types of sinks to choose from when creating the perfect kitchen. I bet you are wondering how to choose your sink! First, you will want to decide what style of kitchen you are going for. From there you can start looking at sink styles.
A farmhouse-style sink will extend over the edge of your counter. Usually, this type of sink is used in a rustic farmhouse or traditional style. Farmhouse sinks have a deep basin perfect for larger families. Or if you are into interior design, they look beautiful! Combine style and function with a new farmhouse sink to give you that country feel in your kitchen.
If you choose an undermount sink it is installed directly under the counter. It creates a seamless look from the countertop to the sink. The wonderful thing about this type of sink is that it has a seamless sleek look and is very versatile with any kitchen design. These types of sinks make clean up easy as no food or dirt gets stuck in the lip.
If you decide to go with a stainless steel sink, they are light and easy to install. They are normally on the lower end of cost depending on the style you choose. When choosing a stainless steel sink you will want to look at the gauge. A thicker gauge means the sink will typically be heavier and cheaper, while a thinner gauge will mean the sink is lighter and often more expensive. Stainless steel sinks tend to dent and can be a bit noisier. But they have a great stain resistance.
Don’t be afraid to finance!
