A gorgeous bathroom still needs to be able to accommodate all of the basic bathroom functions. But you get bonus points if it looks and feels like a spa while you take your morning shower.
Master bathrooms can typically be split into two sections: the wet area and the dry area. Continuity and aesthetic agreement between these two hemispheres is essential to creating a cohesive design. In the featured Northeast Ohio bathroom, Cevin Cole and 7West Design made use of caramel tones on ceramic tile flooring, faux-wood wall planking, and a natural stone shower. Warm lighting from backlit wall niches completes the transformation from "everyday bathroom" to "inspired spa."
Here's Cevin Cole from 7 ...

By Jaime Johnson

After heavy winds or hail, it’s normal for a homeowner to shoot straight outside to see whether the storm caused damage to trees, or, worse, his or her home. One of the first things a homeowner is likely to worry about is the roof.
Some roof damage can be easily spotted. For example, finding a large limb crashed through the top of your house is a dead giveaway. But some roof damage may be visible only by getting up on the roof and closely inspecting it. That’s something you may not want to do on your own. If that’s the case, you may want to call your roofing professional.
Some damage, however, can be seen from the ground. ...

Waterproof Carpet For The Home

Every home has its accidents and spills, and until recently there wasn't much homeowners could do to spare their carpet from harmful moisture.
Moisture is fundamentally bad news for carpet. The backing, padding, and carpet fibers themselves absorb moisture quickly and hold a stain indefinitely. Even if you witness a large spill and react immediately, the stain will return to the surface in a day or two.
The problem is how quickly moisture is able to penetrate the top layer and evade drying from even the most diligent homeowners. That's why Tigressa's newest "H2O" offering uses a thermoplastic backing that keeps moisture on the carpet's surface. You'll still need to deal with the spill, but ...

When designing tile floors and backsplashes, it’s the little details that make the biggest impact. Most homeowners spend countless hours sifting through the endless options of available tile shapes, colors, and textures, but they often pick the grout as a mere afterthought. The color of the grout, however, can dramatically change the look of your flooring and walls.
While grout is used as a filler between tiles to bond them together and protect the edges so they don’t chip, esthetics also is a consideration as the grout can draw your eye to the beauty of the individual tiles or showcase the overall pattern.
Here are some tips to ...
