Design Tip: Paneled Bathtubs

Bathroom designs have risen to greater levels of attention and quality over the past few years as the standard setting is migrating to a more personal resort or refuge. The longing to have a spa-like environment in the comfort of one’s own home is now even more desirable and financially feasible. Soft lighting, placid walls and wood or wood-like cabinetry together offer the serenity one desires. One way to incorporate more nature into the space is to offer wood paneled bathtubs. This luxurious and lavish addition provides a more tranquil look as it provides an escape from the outside world. Check out a few of our paneled bathtub installations on Houzz or Pinterest.

Spring Cleaning: Start with your Cabinets

SpringCleaning2ImageRegardless of the weather outside or how you’re feeling about the concept of seasons, the calendar says it’s Spring and we all know what that suggests: Spring Cleaning. Gather the family, grab your cleaning supplies and get moving.

Starting with the kitchen, top-to-bottom, clean those frameless cabinets. Using a soft, lint-free cloth, start by dusting the cabinets. You can also lightly dampen the cloth with water and mild soap or cleanser. Wipe down the cabinets followed by a dry cloth to ensure no water is left behind. Continue until all the cabinets are sparkling.

Avoid using detergent, soap pads, steel wool or any other type of abrasive pad, as well as citrus oils, paste wax or polish containing silicone. We also do not recommend using ammonia, bleach, acetone and lacquer thinner or items such as WD40 or Goof-Off. Dusting your cabinetry on a regular basis will not only eliminate build-up, it will make Spring Cleaning a bit easier and quicker.

Now, open your windows, let that crisp air in and get cleaning.
