Denver Bathroom Remodeling Decisions to Make


March 25, 2020

Tired of entering the same old bathroom with limited counter space or only one sink? Dreaming of adding another vanity area while allowing more than one person to get ready at a time? Looking for ways to improve your daily routine? Hoping to make a little more money in the event that you put your property on the market? If you answered yes to any of these questions or are simply ready for a change then consider remodeling your current bathroom.

The benefits of updating a bathroom are plentiful. In fact, remodeling a bathroom serves multiple purposes and can achieve a number of wants for any homeowner. Simply changing countertop surfaces of an existing space can give a room an entirely different look. In addition, there are a number of different decisions that must be made once any property owner determines that the time is right for them to make a few upgrades to their existing space.

Material

A quick upgrade to your bathroom can be achieved by switching out the existing countertops. While there are a number of different materials to choose from, finding one that exactly fits your needs is important. With the abundance of selection, there is something out there for everyone.

Color

Color changes can be applied on walls to either lighten a room or create a more serene environment inside the bathroom. In addition, the contrast with other fixtures and utilities - sinks, showers, tubs, toilets, etc. can also either be enhanced or provide an entirely different feel for the room. If changing out countertops, the abundance of materials available also allows for homeowners to have their say in surface colors to incorporate.

Space

Another reason to consider a remodel is to create more space within the bathroom. Even without expanding the walls and actually changing the floorplan of a home, there are multiple ways to incorporate a more efficient use of the space already available. Having one sink or two in your master bathroom essentially comes down to which type of space is given priority. Want more area to get ready for the day in a timely manner - utilize two sinks. Looking for more countertop space or storage - stick with one. Either way, remodeling a bathroom to your personal preferences will not only give your room a sense of personality but also allow for an increase in the overall value of your home.

Denver Bathroom Dual Sink Advantages


March 5, 2020

One of the most intriguing aspects taking over real estate design in recent years is the incorporation of two sinks within a master, guest, or any other bathroom located in a home. This increase from one traditional sink has been historically well received and is growing in popularity for a number of different reasons.

The inclusion of this design is almost a given when used in combination with a Jack and Jill bathroom (one bathroom shared between two bedrooms with entrances from each) but is also increasingly being installed within master bedrooms. Whether you in the process of building a new construction or completing plans for a bathroom renovation, consider each of the following advantages to utilizing two sinks within a shared space
.
Time Saver
First a foremost, the incorporation of two sinks is a definite time saver. Whether in a master bedroom shared by a couple or used between two bedrooms, having two sinks available for use saves a tremendous amount of time. Instead of having to wait for availability or drag belongings and personal items to another area of the home, two people can complete their daily routines in a timely fashion without the wait.

Look
Two sinks creates a unique opportunity for matching fixtures and creating a modern or traditional look depending on the style selected. In addition, two sinks also can help eliminate countertop clutter as a by product of its use.

Space
Obviously the use of dual sinks is going to cost some flat top counter space but the trade off is often more cabinet storage space underneath. Extra plumbing will be needed to add an additional sink and this usually allows for additional under-counter areas for storage when the two sink system is used.

Personal Touch
Two sinks also allows those who are responsible for sharing the space to typically have their own personal space. If installed within a master bathroom, both parties can keep their personal belongings in relation to the sink they are using. Creating a personal feel and area for each person is another major benefit of installing two sinks within a bathroom.

If you’re ready to enhance an existing bathroom with two sinks or want to simply add something countertop or cabinet related of your own, then look no further than the highly qualified experts at HTI Granite and Cabinetry. Serving the Denver and surrounding areas, including Wyoming, for years, we’re here to help and assist with any bathroom or kitchen remodeling or construction project you have in mind.

Denver Countertops: Contrasting Surfaces Offer Multiple Possibilities


February 19, 2020

There are many new trends in kitchen design but the latest mixes practicality with flair. Serving as one of the most important rooms in the entire home, the kitchen is a gathering place for family and friends and often the central focus area for any occasion. Yes, there may be an outdoor entertainment space or living room available for the overflow but as the crowds gather it is often around the table, bar, island, or any other surface in the kitchen holding food.

Kitchens are also often one of the first spaces a visitor encounters when he or she makes their way into your home. No matter if the individual is family, friend, or an unknown, they are typically welcomed or made to feel at home by their surroundings. For these reasons, kitchens have evolved into the most important room of the home and their design style should reflect their modern relevance. While kitchens have not always served as a place for the entire family to gather, and instead were workstations for those responsible for cooking and preparing the meals, the transition is a welcome one and should last well into the future.

One of the more modern trends now being seen across kitchen design revolves around surfaces and their uniqueness. Contrasting materials and colors from the wall lining cabinets to an island or bar is the newest trend and one that serves a variety of different purposes.

Usefulness
The ability to utilize your kitchen as a workspace is something that a few people will forget when initiating the design process. Remember, not only do you want this area to look its best but creating a functional space is also extremely important. 

Using wood on an island and formulating a natural cutting board can be a great coordination with your existing natural stone countertops. In addition, using two different materials can also help to provide a distinct look and alternate available function.

Look and Design
A contrasting kitchen island can be from surface material to color selection. Depending on the already existing color patterns for your style, making a statement with a focal piece provided by your island and the hue selected is becoming a popular modern scheme.

Compromise
Not only can using two contrasting colors help to add some pop to your room but if you have a traditional white, grey color scheme or something with lighter tones, using the colored island option can help to potentially ease some battles between parties responsible for designing their new kitchen.

Suppose one party likes the clean cut white lines with a light countertop and the other involved individual wants colorful countertops with a different surface material. With the current modern trends, each can get what they want and still be considered within the modern design process, making compromising even easier in today’s market.

If you’re ready to enhance an existing kitchen with a countertop remodeling project or undertaking the designs for a brand new kitchen, then look no further than the highly qualified experts at HTI Granite and Cabinetry.

Denver Countertops: Quartz and Granite Share Important Similarities


February 5, 2020

Both quartz and granite countertops offer homeowners a virtually indestructible surface material option for their construction needs. Regardless of if you are in the midst of a remodeling project or building a brand new kitchen (or other applicable area, i.e. bathroom) from the ground up - having a suitable and reliable material is extremely important. The flexibility offered to property owners who choose to install a natural stone surface is virtually endless. While choosing the appropriate material does require some research, two of the typical front-runners offer individuals many of the same benefits.

Both granite and quartz each possess their own unique properties but determining if one is actually better than the other can prove to be a difficult task. Depending on your personal preference and style, these two natural stone countertops can probably both be adjusted to fit your needs although the battle continues about quartz vs. granite countertops for many homeowners. While granite may possess a more natural feel with noticeable veining and other indications of solid rock formations, quartz too shares some similar properties.

Each of these three critical factors for ensuring you are getting the best countertop surface span both options equally.

Durability

Being a natural stone component (quartz) and literal rock (granite), each has tremendous durability and will likely outlast many of the other features within a home. From the roof to windows, one area property owners will not have to worry about replacing is the countertop, regardless of which material is ultimately chosen.

Upkeep

While there may be a few more steps to taking care of granite countertops, neither surface requires any painstaking maintenance. Once sealed, the occasional wipe down and general cleaning should keep your surfaces looking great for years to come.

Appearance

Depending on if you’re trying to achieve a specific color or if you favor a more natural look, are essentially the two main factors for which surface may be best suited for your space. Both will increase the value of the area where they are applied, aesthetically and monetarily, with each offering distinct character depending on personal preference. Granite tends to have more of a natural look than quartz but both are similarly distinct.

Denver Bathroom and Kitchen Countertop Cohesiveness


January 15, 2020

Countertops seem to always play a key factor in the decision making process of homeowners or potential buyers - whether these individuals are purchasing a new home, completing a reconstruction project, or installing an entirely new surface area. These spaces not only receive a fair amount of wear and tear through meal prep and other related uses, but they also serve to create a focal point in common areas for any residence.

Ensuring you have the correct materials installed, in addition to correlating your surface materials throughout the home, can play an important role within the interior design concept. For many, the idea to incorporate a similar construction material throughout the residence is important, but not necessarily something that must be done. With so many options for kitchen and bathroom countertops, the main goal is to choose an appropriate material but creating a cohesiveness throughout the property can also appeal to both current residents or potential home buyers in the future.

Kitchen Countertops

There are a variety of different factors to consider when choosing a kitchen countertop material. Desired colors, usage, shape, and budgets can all weigh in on the ultimate decision. Choosing a solid option based on these factors will go a long way in determining if you wish to correlate a similar style throughout the remainder of your home. 

Bathroom Countertops

Bathroom countertops do not typically receive the same amount of usage as that of their kitchen counterparts but if you’re matching styles throughout a home then choosing the same material is obviously important. Color schemes of a kitchen may not match the bathroom, but different hues for the same material can often be found when dealing with granite and other natural surface material options.

Benefits of Matching

One of the main benefits to matching your countertops within a home revolves around care and upkeep. If installed at the same time, a schedule can be kept for routine maintenance within the home. While the care for natural surfaces is often minimal, having only one type of countertop to keep up with can be beneficial. In addition, the feel and flow of a home can be enhanced when there is a cohesiveness throughout the property, such as similar countertops from one room to the next. Just as the open floor plan has been used to create a feeling of flow from one room to the next, these matching surfaces serve in a similar manner - even when walls are in place to break up the floorplan.

If you’re ready to enhance an existing bathroom or kitchen with some new matching countertops or want to simply add something of your own, then look no further than the highly qualified experts at HTI Granite and Cabinetry.
