However all those choices can be overwhelming. “The majority of consumers have begun their own research on products and styles, but they are full of unanswered questions,” Suzanne says. “An expert can help guide your decision-making process and bring solutions.” M aking the right choices can mean all the difference. David McGuire, chief operating officer of Andrew Roby, Inc., a local custom residential contractor, works with homeowners on projects large and small. “It’s about building a relationship,” says David. “We send homeowners to Ferguson because getting personalized attention from an expert consultant is something you probably won’t get at big-box retailer.”

1. Longer and wider cabinetry-helps to elongate a small bathroom

2. Environmentally conscious products- these may include energy efficient products,etc.

4. Counter-tops of differing heights:  accommodates people and guests of all heights and sizes

5.  Multiple sinks: allows for multiple people to be in a bathroom area at once, completing different tasks

What man throws away, we recycle into a beautiful natural composite that is superior to natural stone.  If there are two rooms in your home conditions, it has to be the kitchen and bath.

When it comes to the bath, many consumers want to create a spa-like oasis, but the problem can be finding materials for surface areas that can withstand daily abuse, cleaning chemicals and soaps, yet still look luxurious.

Previously, the look and elegance found with marble was either cost prohibitive or not practical for the bath area, but now, a new product from Cosentino aims to bring style and durability to the bath…

Why would a well-established local business choose to change their name? In the case of Queen City Countertops, a name change was needed to better represent their expanded service offerings. They recently broadened their scope of services from countertops to include complete renovation services, becoming Queen City Kitchen and Bath.

They now offer turn-key kitchen and bath renovations and project management to act as a liaison between the various subcontractors that are involved in a kitchen or bath remodel.

“Because we run the entire project in-house, this ensures on-time delivery and high quality workmanship, alleviating unnecessary homeowner stress,” says Dee Grannan, their in-house kitchen and bath designer.

In business since 2003 and family-run, the attention to detail and personalized service has been a critical component to this businesses success and repeat business…

If the recession has taught us anything, it’s that bigger isn’t always better. Even when it comes to our kitchens, we’re downsizing; the National Kitchen and Bath Association’s (NKBA) design trends for 2010 included  concealed kitchens and space efficiency.

In this aspect, Europe is decades ahead of us. The European kitchen is the model of efficiency and beautiful minimalist design. Cooking in Europe is viewed differently than in the US with fresh ingredients and depends less on stored and pre-prepared food. Space is usually at a premium so appliances are smaller and storage is paramount.

Charlotte homeowners are in luck because Nolte Home Studios, maker of Europe’s most innovative kitchen and bedroom designs, has recently opened its first US showroom in Pineville.

Nolte is a German manufacturing company (second largest single label in the world) that has been designing and producing high-quality kitchens for more than 50 years. Their innovative space-saving designs keep everything in your cabinets organized and close-at-hand while using every inch of space available.

But those are the things you don’t see; the exterior of a Nolte kitchen is a work of minimalist art with clean uninterrupted lines and a streamlined elegant look….

What makes the beauty of a well-designed polished chrome faucet, sleek, sculpted tub or an ultra modern toilet even better? According to Cassie Abernethy, Complex showroom manager with HD Kitchen and Bath Collection, it’s state-of-the-art performance.

She explains that the newest lines of luxury plumbing fixtures feature electronic technology that allows you to control the flow of the water in your kitchen sink, adjust the lights and water level in your whirlpool bath, or heat your toilet seat to the perfect temperature. Every time. With only the slightest touch or the motion of your body.

HD Kitchen and Bath Collection features many products designed with the latest technology, including the Talo faucet by Brizo. Its streamlined design is a perfect accent for traditional, transitional or contemporary kitchens. But it’s the faucet’s SmartTouch® Technology, which allows you to turn the water on or off just by touching any part of the handle or faucet, that makes it so popular.

“There are many reasons people want electronic plumbing technology,” explains Cassie. “Water conservation is one reason; convenience is another. Our customers like the fact that they don’t have to make a number of repetitive movements in order to use the faucet. Concern about contamination is another big consideration, more so in commercial kitchens and restrooms, but now people can have this same technology in their homes…”
