Form and Function

When it comes to remodeling a bathroom or kitchen, the immediate concerns many homeowners have are finding ways to improve the look and feel of the space. However, because of their functional roles in the home, the aesthetic considerations behind your bathroom or kitchen remodel must first and foremost take into account the room’s purpose.

If you’re anticipating lots of wear and tear in your kitchen, for example, marble countertops may not be the best choice, because marble tends to scratch and stain more easily than a hardier material, like granite. For bathroom countertops, on the other hand, marble is often a preferred choice, since bathroom countertops are not as highly utilized as those in the kitchen.

Before beginning the remodeling process, assess what your needs are, and then brainstorm different ways to accommodate those needs.
