Trending Bathroom Countertops and How to Choose the Right One for You
We often shave a few years off our age or overstate our income a tad when talking to friends. However, not being upfront about your budget when you are having a custom home designed and built is usually not going to end well. Don’t be embarrassed that your budget is lower than you think your builder wants it to be or that they’ll take advantage if they know it is higher than normal. The only way that builders of custom homes can give you the best possible results is if they are working with a reality-based budget.
The bathrooms in your home may not take up a lot of square footage, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make big statements with these rooms as part of your home building or renovation project. Bathrooms are a great place to go a little overboard with style, design, and décor. They are a place where guests will likely take a little bit more time to admire their surroundings, so why not make these rooms look incredible? There are so many details about bathrooms that you can change if you are just considering a reno, but bathroom countertops are a great place to start since they can be a focal point.
