A Garden and Outdoor Patio Go Hand-in-hand

I love to garden, and when my family moved into a new home, I was very excited at the thought of getting to plan a brand-new garden! We moved to a completely different climate, so there was a learning curve to finding out which flowers and plants would thrive in the new location. Thankfully, the project was a success, but I realized that our family didn't get to enjoy the beauty of our garden without an outdoor living space to lounge on in the backyard. We soon found a local contractor with amazing ideas on how we could turn out yard into a beautiful, outdoor oasis. I enjoyed helping him plan and watching him build our new backyard patio, and I actually learned a lot during the process. I am eager to share what I have learned with others on my new blog!

Cool Features Of The Modern Bathroom You Should Check Out Before Renovation

The bathroom is one room in the house that could constantly evolve into something bigger and better because ideas in bathroom design are ever-changing. If you are planning a bathroom renovation project, there is no doubt you are looking forward to picking and choosing all those new fixtures and design features. If you really want to reach into your bathroom and bring it into the 21st century, you will definitely want to know about some of the latest implementations and options. Here is a quick look at a few cool features you don't want to miss in your bathroom renovation process. 

Freestanding Bathtubs - So maybe freestanding tubs are no new idea, but the sheer volume of styles of freestanding bathtubs is what is so modern about this option. Freestanding tubs can be found in squared shapes for geometric appeal and even perfectly rounded, but one constant remains the same: these tubs are almost always situated in the center of the room like a shining jewel in the bathroom design. 

Waterfall Faucets - Skip the traditional downspouts and spruce up the fixtures on your bathtub and sinks with a waterfall faucet. These faucets disperse water at a slight contour downward in a widened stream much like a waterfall would be. The wider distribution means more surface area can be covered by the stream, making it easier to wash your hands without using a ton of water in the process. 

Ambient Lighting - Lighting has most definitely changed in the modern bathroom. A space that used to be illuminated by a basic fixture or row of lights over the vanity can now be lit in an array of ways, from recessed lights along the ceiling to ambient lighting that allows you to control the brightness. Just imagine lowering the lights and changing their color to a soft glowing amber before sinking into a bubble bath. With bathroom ambient lighting, this is a possibility.

Separate Wet Room and Toilet Area - Wet rooms are covered in protective tile from floor to ceiling and are designed to be an all-encompassing shower space. These rooms often have variations of shower heads and nozzles to offer different ways to get clean. But the coolest thing is, the whole room is like a giant shower that is separated from the toilet area. Drains in the floor wick away water and some homeowners even opt for integrated steam systems so the space can be used as a sauna, complete with benches for seating.
