A bathroom is one of the most functional rooms in a home, and yet it's often overlooked during the redecoration process. While the bathroom is essential when living in a home, many aesthetic and functional updates are instead focused on the more public rooms of a house. For that reason, many bathrooms can become neglected, with outdated aesthetics and without the benefit of the latest advancements in design and technology.
Of all the rooms in your home, the bathroom is the one room where everyone needs absolute privacy. From the master bath behind your bedroom to the downstairs powder room, we all want to take care of our most personal business in private. Unfortunately, not all homes are designed to provide that privacy.
Whether you're looking to freshen up your current bathroom or you're tackling a major overhaul, it's important to remember that the right bathroom lighting can mean the difference between a bathroom that just looks good, and a bathroom that looks good and functions well.

Every home chef knows how important kitchen space is. The last thing you want to be doing is trying to figure out where to set your pot of hot food right in the middle of dinner. Perhaps worse is being limited to what you can cook, simply because you feel there is not enough space to create the meal you have in mind. But limited kitchen space doesn't mean you restrict what you cook and start making plans to knock down walls. Instead, there are many options available to give you more room so you can spend less time worrying about space and more time worrying about the next recipe you are going to try.
