Kitchen and Bath

Whether it's used for cooking, dining or entertaining guests, the kitchen is the hub of the home. A thoughtfully arranged room can be a major time-saver and allow the family to make the most of the common space. Kitchen appliances, plumbing, tile, sinks, counter space, and dining space all influence how the kitchen is used and how much the homeowners enjoy it. Choosing the right appliances for energy efficiency constitutes a greater concern than ever, allowing families to go green and to save money on utility bills. The bath, while a utilitarian space, can be a personal oasis. It is the ideal space for homeowners to recharge, and the choice of surfaces, tile, and fixtures can influence how much the bathroom is enjoyed.
