7West Designs A Spa-Inspired Bathroom

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 ...

Waterproof Carpet For The Home

Categories: Building & Remodeling, Décor & Lighting

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 ...

Owner, Northeast Factory Direct
Whether you’re furnishing an entire home for the first time or updating just one room, the process can be overwhelming. Whatever the stage of your home remodel, there are a few things to keep in mind as you head out to furniture shop.
A sofa is arguably the most important piece of furniture you’ll purchase for your home. Buy the highest quality and most comfortable one you can afford, keep it neutral, and pay attention to size. No need to overwhelm the room.
A close second to your sofa is a bed. You don’t even need to invest in a complete bedroom set; just a comfortable bed to fit the room is fine.

Grout Colors: Choosing The Right Tile...

By Monica Guhde
Manager, Guhde Flooring America
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 ...

Monica Guhde and Shawn Rosa know what homeowners are thinking about when they walk into the Guhde Flooring America showroom—money.
Everyone wants to get a good deal, and for good reason, flooring is often the third most expensive purchase a homeowner makes.

No matter where you shop, there will be laminate options under $1 per square foot, and hardwood options over $10 per square foot. Finding the sweet spot for you and your budget is the tricky part, and it’s easy to be convinced by ...

Upstairs neighbors are the worst. They're the faceless monster that takes joy in creating creaks and thumps. They're the ne'er-do-well that seems to coordinate their furniture moving schedule with your sleep schedule. They're the villain of apartment living.
I have a confession to make. I am the upstairs neighbor. I just might be your upstairs neighbor.

Dear Downstairs Neighbor,
I am an adult human being that weighs more than 100 pounds, and if your griping is to be believed, your ceiling/my floor is composed of cardboard imbued with special powers to make it whatever the opposite of noise-cancelling is. Sadly, I don't mo ...

If you try to organize the entire house in one marathon session, you may give up without accomplishing much. Instead, make a plan that breaks your mission into managea ...

By Brent Moore
Owner, Moore Home Remodeling
Sharing ideas have made building something truly unique even more difficult. There are, however, local contractors who, along with some out-of-the-box thinking, can take a homeowner’s inspiration and make it all their own. Here are a couple of project ideas that are trending right now in Northeast Ohio.
Barn doors that multitask as both a headboard and window covering
Ideal for bedrooms that don’t have extensive wall space to put the bed up against, such as an attic with sloped ceilings and gable ends with windows, a barn door that slides on tracks when closed makes an attractive headboard and doubles as a window covering when it sl ...
