When remodeling your bath or kitchen, a good designer is a must! The National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) agrees.

There are so many benefits to hiring a designer to help with your next remodeling project. Designers hear over and over from their clients: “I never knew that was even an option to consider!”

The services of a professional designer usually represent about four percent of the total project budget, according to NKBA. Their expertise saves time and money as well as assuring a more valuable, satisfying outcome!

A good designer will help you translate your vision and assist you in all of your needs. You may not even know you have left out important aspects of your design.

Remodeling your kitchen or bath is one of the most important investments you will make to your home. Often, home hunters will make a decision based on the kitchen and master bath. So, if you are planning on selling, a good designer can only help increase the value.

Certified designers are held to high standards. They are tested and certified much like public accountants or financial planners. Many have completed undergraduate education in design and also have taken extra seminars to gain extra certification.

Designers are experts in their field and can recognize the importance of making your dream a reality. They can also come up with the most budget-friendly option to help you stay on track during your remodeling process.

A designer not only will help you save money but also time. When you have a career and little time left for designing or redecorating, a designer can save you a lot of guess work. They also can provide you with options so you don’t have to start from scratch.

A designer brings so many benefits. DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen has several certified designers ready to help you with your remodeling experience. Contact your local DreamMaker today and create your own dream bath or kitchen!

A new trend is forming in home building, building a home that looks old on the outside, but has all the interior qualities of a modern home; size, closets and kitchens. Many are wanting out of “McMansions” and are craving a dose of reality.

A home made to look old on the outside will surprise guests with this ultra-modern kitchen.

Architects have taken on poring over house plans of early 19th and 20th century homes to ensure the house is built to the owner’s like. However, according to Amy Albert, editor of Custom Home, “People aren’t seeking exact replicas of historical houses; they want architectural purity in the elevations and the details, but inside, they want connectivity and open floor plans.”

Many builders, architects and homeowners want to recreate the days they spent at grandma’s house and have the “homey” feel accompanied by visits with the family, when Sunday dinner was a big deal.

“Memories are an underrated idea in terms of making people feel comfortable,” said architect Gil Schafer.

Many have argued for buying an old home and renovating it. Others may enjoy buying a new contemporary-looking house and having it remodeled to “look old.”

Making homes look older is a growing trend in homes and home design. It will make an impact on all aspects of home interior designing, especially at DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen. The remodeling aspect of a new home with a “homey” feel already has taken effect in a lot of our areas and will continue to do so.

Wall Street Journal does not see this trend disappearing any time soon, and with the rise in homes being purchased, builders and home owners alike are loving the idea of new old home more and more every day.
