6 Must-Know Kitchen and Bathroom Design Trends

beautiful kitchen design - home inspection miamiBrought to you by your friends from Atlantic Building Inspections

Many homeowners today wonder how they can turn their bathrooms or kitchens into something worthy of making the rounds on Pinterest or Instagram. As more people want to give their home a personal and stylish touch, home decorating and interior design is hotter than ever, and the possibilities are seemingly limitless.

The only problem is that making up your mind can be overwhelming. If you’ve ever tried to pick what shade of blue or tint of gray to paint a wall, you know that sometimes there are too many choices. With over 140 years of designing kitchen and bathroom products,  Kohler Kitchen & Bath tapped into a large brain trust of designers and product experts.

Here’s the 6 Leading Kitchen and Bath Design Trends for 2017:  

1. All in the mix. We all know patterns play a big role in how large a room appears and what features are accented or emphasized. For all the importance people place on patterns, many are inherently afraid of blending — or mixing — patterns. Be bold! When done right, this can create a vibrant, energetic space that does more for your room than if you were to play it safe.

2. Perfect pairs. Two of the most striking colors to appear in kitchens and bathrooms these days are velvety blues and vivid greens. Blues are timeless and can work well by themselves in most situations, but add a small dose of blood orange and you’ve created an infectious vibe to the room. Nothing makes as dramatic a statement as pairing two complementary colors.

3. A softer white. A traditional color for bathrooms and kitchens, white gives off a clean, bright aura. Nonetheless, the look can be a bit clinical. One way around this problem is to warm up the whites with a tone of brass, gold or bronze. Subtle touches on the cabinets or backsplash can create a warm ambiance that softens the look of an all-white space.

4. Keep it neutral. If you’re looking for fun, vibrant colors but aren’t ready to go all in, consider neutral shades such as icy blue, blush sand and other straight-from-nature shades. These are a lot more refreshing than the standard beige! Such transparent neutrals beautifully diffuse light and lend themselves to contrasting elements.

5. Amber Glow. The living room has expanded. Kitchens aren’t just for preparing food and bathrooms aren’t just for getting ready. People want a cozier, at-home feel for both these rooms. Top designers do this by adding a range of metallic fixtures coupled with smoky grays, a combination that creates a dramatic and welcoming room.

6. Noir. With the debut of black stainless steel appliances, black has made its way back to being a staple color in kitchens and bathrooms. Of late, the emphatic pairing of black and white has become the real showstopper. The idea here is to work with high contrast: think strong color-blocking patterns and heavy stripes. Two timeless colors will join to create a perfectly modern mixture.

Natural Selection: Live-Edge Wood In Home Design

Helpful Information from your friends at  Atlantic Building Inspections

Live-edge hardwood, in which the sides of the slab are left unmilled to retain the natural profile of the tree trunk, is an increasingly popular decorative trend in today’s residential interiors. The technique is not only used for pieces of stand-alone furniture such as tables and benches but also for built-in elements like shelving, mantles, countertops, bars and kitchen islands.

 

“Most mills cut off the rough tree edges, turning the raw timber into neat boards,” says Linda Jovanovich, of the American Hardwood Information Center at www.HardwoodInfo.com. “But the current demand for live-edge slabs has led to a small but vigorous subset of producers who specialize in the category.” These are often boutique businesses that source, dry and mill limited batches of timber for use in furniture of their own design and manufacture.

 

“Some larger sawmills sell live-edge slabs to the public,” Jovanovich continues. “You visit their showroom and pick your own one-of-a-kind piece of ash, cherry, red oak, walnut or whatever other hardwood species they have in stock. A cabinet maker can then custom-make a piece of furniture or a built-in feature to your exact specifications.”

 

Sustainability-minded entrepreneurs are responsible for another niche in the live-edge hardwood market: small urban suppliers that source culled or fallen trees from the backyards of private homes, public parks, graveyards and other leafy locations in their city and its immediate environs. One such enterprise, RE-CO BKLYN in Brooklyn, New York, recently harvested four 12,000-pound logs from a 150-year-old storm-felled elm in nearby Prospect Park. The logs were taken to an upstate mill to be sawn into live-edge slabs and dried before being shipped back to Brooklyn, where they were either sold or used by RE-CO for tables, desks, bar counters, shelves, headboards and other beautiful custom-made pieces it produces.

 

“It was George Nakashima, the legendary Japanese-American mid-century furniture maker, who pioneered the use of live-edge slabs in refined residential settings,” says New York–based designer Glenn Gissler. “Previously, untrimmed wood planks, sometimes with the bark still intact, were used for rustic, log-cabin or ranch-house effects — elements that referenced the traditions, myths, and aesthetics of the American Old West. With his gorgeous large-scale pieces, comprising multiple slabs of characterful woods like walnut and cherry connected with butterfly joints, Nakashima showed us how unfinished natural edges and richly figured knotted surfaces fit perfectly into even the most sophisticated urban interiors.”

 

Today, original Nakashima pieces are highly collectible and command high prices at auction. But his free-edge aesthetic is more influential than ever as homeowners discover the ability of live-edge furniture to work with almost any decorative style. Paired with blackened steel legs, for example, a live-edge slab of burled walnut creates a dining table with loft-worthy industrial chic. Fixed to the bedroom wall, a free-form expanse of warm-toned cherry provides a romantic headboard. Or a hefty live-edge slab of oak, supported on an equally hefty oak-slab base, makes for a monumental console with the presence of a piece of archaic sculpture. New York–based designer Laura Bohn has even used the chainsawed cross-section of an elm trunk — complete with its bark — as a counter top on which to mount a stainless steel powder-room sink. “It introduces a decidedly rustic note into a thoroughly modern space,” she says. “And yet it looks perfectly natural as if it had just grown there of its own accord.” Visit www.HardwoodInfo.com for more about residential design trends and other applications and products using American hardwoods. – (BPT)

A Room-By-Room Guide To Decluttering Your Home

clean bathroom image - home inspection miamiBrought to you by your friends from Atlantic Building Inspections

Controlling clutter in your home can be a challenge; 48 percent of Americans say their houses are cluttered with stuff they don’t use anymore, according to a survey by ClearVoice Research. Multiple studies have found a cluttered home can negatively affect your mental and physical health, while a cleaner home can make you feel happier and healthier.

A UCLA study found mothers in cluttered homes had higher stress levels while dealing with their stuff, while an Indiana University study found people with clean houses are healthier than those living in cluttered homes. You may realize clutter isn’t good for you, but it’s not always easy to get organized.

Here is a Room-by-Room Guide to Cutting the Clutter:

Entryway – Basic tactics:

* Decide what belongs in your entryway and what doesn’t. The size of the space will influence this decision. If your entryway is a spacious mudroom, you might choose to store shoes, boots, umbrellas, and backpacks there. If you have a modest foyer, you may decide you only have room for car keys. Remove anything from the space that doesn’t help it serve its purpose in your home.

* Add storage/organization that helps space meet its purpose. Wall-hung key racks can keep important keys at your fingertips. Shoe racks are available in a variety of sizes and styles to fit your space and décor while keeping footwear organized and off the floor.

* If space allows, adding built-in storage such as cabinets and shelves can help keep an entry space organized and visually appealing.

Family room – Basic tactics:

* Assess the kind of clutter that builds up in your family room. Perhaps your clutter consists of children’s toys, magazines, and newspapers, or multiple remote controls for entertainment components. Once you know what kind of clutter you’re collecting, decide if it belongs and must be accommodated, or doesn’t and should go.

* Add storage solutions specific to your needs. For example, storage ottomans can double as extra seating and a place to store frequently used toys. A caddy can keep remote controls organized and at hand.

* Sometimes furniture that’s too large for space can add to the feeling of a cluttered and congested room. Assess your family room furniture. Is it the right size for space, or is it overwhelming the area? Replace overly large furnishings with ones that better fit the room.

* If you have the room for it, a large shelving or cabinet unit can help contain clutter. Add decorative containers to help keep everyday items like toys, magazines and other frequently used items organized on shelves.

Bathroom – Basic tactics:

* Tackle the linen closet and trash any partial bottles of shampoo, tubes of toothpaste and towels that have seen better days. Be brutal. If you haven’t used that half bottle of body wash so far, chances are you never will.

* Clean out your medicine cabinet. Discarding expired prescription medicines can help reduce the risk of someone accidentally taking the wrong medication.

* Showers can be among the most cluttered spots in a bathroom. If you’re ready to take your bathroom organization to the next level, ditch the rack hanging from your showerhead and the precarious corner shelving and upgrade your shower to one with a built-in organization, like Sterling Store+ shower. The showers feature built-in recesses and tracks where you can snap in a variety of storage accessories and shelves, such as a soap dish, storage bin, towel bar or shower hook. The storage is fully customizable, and all accessories are removable and dishwasher safe. Visit www.sterlingplumbing.com to learn more.

Kitchen – Basic tactics:

* Countertops frequently host a wealth of kitchen-related clutter, from the mail you brought in yesterday and forgot to go through too small appliances you use once or twice a year. Clearing off countertops can make a kitchen feel visually more appealing, look bigger and function better. Remove and store rarely used small appliances, ditch the ceramic container of utensils and store those items in drawers instead.

* Pantries and Cabinets can be nearly as cluttered as countertops. Adding shelving and storage units within cabinets can help keep pots, pans, lids, and dishware better organized and more easily accessible.

* Some people need a bit of extra incentive to stay organized. If that’s you, consider replacing solid cabinet doors with glass ones that reveal what’s inside. Knowing the contents of your cabinets are always on display can help inspire you to keep them tidy and organized. Plus, glass-front cabinets are an opportunity to create an appealing visual display. – (BPT)

Latest Deck Trend: ‘Monster’ Size, Mega-Luxury

man and woman in a large deckBrought to you by your friends at  Atlantic Building Inspections

Move over mini — the new trend in decking is anything but small. When it comes to the size of their decks, the majority of Americans feel bigger is better — as multiple surveys indicate decks are getting larger and more luxurious, RealtorMag reports.

Today’s decks dwarf the outdoor spaces of decades ago, and blur the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces with features like full kitchens, dining and entertainment areas, says Kim Katwijk, owner of Deck Builders Inc. in Olympia, Washington. Katwijk is a 20-year  veteran of the deck-building business and co-producer of the upcoming web series Outdoors Outdone.

Sizable Changes:

Katwijk says the intersection of two major home trends is driving the growth of “monster” decks: homes are getting larger and outdoor living has reached mainstream status. Last year, more than half of all new homes were 2,400 square feet or larger, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s “Characteristics of New Housing” report. In 1973, the average home size was 1,660 square feet. As homes grew, deck sizes have, too. RealtorMag reports one survey found that since 2014, the average deck size grew by 53 percent in the Northeast, to 406 square feet.

The Making of a ‘Monster’ Deck:

So what makes a deck project “monster”? Size, design, materials, and amenities all combine in this nationwide trend.

Size — “Monster” decks are big — really big. Mark Kalady, a decking sales manager for TAMKO Building Products, Inc., says he’s recently seen residential decks grow to 3,000 square feet. Depending on the amenities included, a deck 1,600-1,800 square feet could also be considered “monster.”

Kitchens/dining — Cooking and dining areas are among the most requested luxury features, deck builders say. Luxury grills, built-in pizza ovens and full-cook stoves and sinks are becoming more common.

Water/Fire — Fire and water features such as hot tubs, lap pools, fireplaces and fire pits are part of the trend of bringing the indoors out. These focal points serve as relaxation, exercise, and entertaining stations.

Seating — Katwijk says “conversational pits” designed specifically for extended entertaining allow deck-users to enjoy time together away from the cooking and dining areas.

Multi-story — “Monster” decks often include multiple levels, with each level serving a different theme or intended use, such as dining, conversation, swimming, etc.

Technology — Many of today’s larger decks include living room areas equipped with big-screen TVs, wireless speakers and gaming systems. But the technology used on monster decks can extend to retractable glass walls and skylights, and even the deck boards themselves. Katwijk says the technology behind man-made decking products like Envision composite lumber offers the luxury appearance of exotic woods, but with minimal annual maintenance.

“People want an environment where they can be outdoors, yet have all the creature comforts of their home — essentially creating a space where they can do all the things that they love,” Katwijk says. –  (BPT)

Miami Home Inspectors Areas Missed Out

Although the home inspection process can be a thorough process, still there are areas that are commonly missed out by home inspectors. But this however, is but a tip for home owners who may wish to have their homes inspected, whether for personal satisfaction and security or whether you are planning to have a house sold in the market. But let us first get to the importance on the need to have a home inspection and the need to have a home inspector.

The home inspector is trained to know the ins and outs of how home systems work and intended to function together, even the causes and extent of why these systems can fail.

Most importantly, many interested home buyers usually find it difficult to remain completely uninformed or unaware of the type, make or design of the house they really want, which usually clouds their judgment and sometimes make decisions without having it thoroughly or intelligently considered.

Ideally, a professional home inspection is an examination of the current condition of a house either up for sale or in the process of being bought.

It is far different and distinct from a home appraisal, especially one that determines a home’s value.

It is also different from a municipal inspection, which is primarily conducted to verify or establish compliance of local building and safety codes.

A home inspector, therefore, will not pass or fail a house, but rather evaluate its physical condition and determine which components and systems may need to go through major repair or replacement.

Here is a list of some common areas missed out during inspections and is intended to inform homeowners about the need to also have these areas checked for possible problems and the need for upgrades or repairs, if any. Sometimes because it is often concealed from view or plain sight, smoke detectors sometimes are missed out during the inspection process. So make sure that if in case it is not checked, you may ask the home inspector to include it in the inspection checklist as well.

Same goes with the electrical fixtures and wirings, which are often embedded in between double walls or embedded in concrete. Backflow prevention devices should also be carefully considered, since this helps prevent any untoward flooding in the event of plumbing and waterline leakage.

Basement bathrooms and laundry tubs are sometimes also missed out in the process because not all homes have these areas and fixtures in their basements. Dryer vents, on the other hand, should also be considered for which standard length of dryer vent hoses should not exceed six feet in length. Another important consideration should also be electrical grounding, since improper grounding could cause major problems from accidental electric shocks or even cause house fires.

Unapproved or substandard flexible gas connectors, valves and uncapped gas lines, which should also be of paramount concern since the slight indications of gas leakages can be tragic and disastrous. Also the same with indoor furnaces not properly operating or is not functioning properly. This should also be checked since problems could range from gas leakage to defective firing systems that could also cause a house fire if left unchecked.

Lastly, make sure that water heaters are installed properly or pressure release valves must be working properly or the important copper run off device that should always be checked, as the same with garage door openers or extension cord wiring being used as permanent wiring for fixtures.

So these are the areas commonly missed out by home inspectors so make it a point to also have these in their inspection checklist, it is for your own safety and security.

Importance of Home Inspectors Miami

Home inspectors are professionals whose job description is inspect the structure and safety of a home before selling or purchasing it. In a 2001 survey, there are about 77 % potential and selling home owners who would employ a home inspector to evaluate their house before foregoing with any purchase or deal.

Why is it necessary to get a home inspector? Is home inspection, something that homeowners and potential home owners could do on their own? Let us learn the importance of hiring a qualified home inspector now.

The good thing about getting a home inspector in that this could either give you clarity or could give you substantial reasons to go or cancel the purchase. Though, home inspectors are not in the position to give you advice on whether to purchase a home, there are professionals that can give you a comprehensive look on the status of a home.

Even if you are an experienced homeowner, you would still need an assistance of a home inspector. They are better equipped with knowledge and expertise about evaluating the structure status of homes. For example, if there are water marks in the basement, it could be due to two reasons: water seepage or just an accident. A home inspector would be able to identify these things for homeowners.

Homebuyers are becoming very particular on the condition of the house they are buying. Of course, a house is a major investment and requires a great deal of fund. Homebuyers are very keen on shelling their money on a valuable and sturdy structure. Realtors and homebuyers rely on home inspection results to come up with a realistic value for the house.

Aside from estimating the value of the property, home inspection can also help the seller determine any weak aspects of their home. Infrastructure problems when left unattended can create bigger damage, lower the value and price of the property, and even endanger those who are living in it.

Even minor problems, could even affect the homebuyer’s decision. Remember that first impressions make lasting impact. Whether it is the home’s appearance or structure that needs to be addressed, having a home inspection would be able to give the homeowners time to repair the damage and improve its marketability.

Pre-sale home inspection also has other benefits for the seller of the house. Other than weak points in the structure that needs to be improved, it would also help homeowners and sellers determine good aspects of the house. These property highlights can be maximized in marketing their homes which can be the deciding point for those potential buyers.

Sellers would also be able to avoid any disclosure lawsuit. Disclosure lawsuit starts when the buyer reports a defect to the seller and the seller acknowledges it. After closing the purchase, the reported defect can actually become a major problem which can result into lawsuits and thousands of dollars. A seller, who gets a home inspector to check and evaluate the house, shows his seriousness and honesty to the seller.

See seller’s home inspection.

Home inspection would also make buyers more acquainted with the house they are interested in buying. Potential homeowners would be able to identify the location of utility system switches (pump switches, heating and cooling filters). Buyers would also get enough information on maintaining the home and making in functional in the years to come.

Getting a professional, like a home inspector, to evaluate, review and recommend on repairs in crucial when making a sale or closing a deal. Especially, if you want your house to get its rightful value.

Qualified Miami Home Inspectors

Just like in any other professions, there are also qualified and unqualified professionals in the home inspection business. It could be very difficult identifying a good home inspector from a bad one. There are just several states in the US that are imposing regulations and licensing requirements to home inspectors. Therefore, should a homebuyer hire a home inspector recommended by an agent? Or you will looking for yourself?

In areas where regulations are not stringent about home inspections, anyone could easily pose as a home inspector. You surely would not want to pay fees to home inspectors that are actually just mere con artists. Worse, if you are selling your house, you might actually jeopardize your transaction just because the home inspector screwed up.

Home inspections are tedious tasks to do. It is not like somebody would just enter into the house and run an ocular checking. If that is the case, you could do the task yourself. But that is not it. There are many factors and aspects that need further and more detailed attention. This is the reason why professional and well qualified inspectors are needed.

There are several usual scenarios that demonstrate why there is a need for actual and professional home inspectors. First, suppose you are about to sell a house. If you have hired an unqualified inspector, he might just walk in and see if there are visible and obvious cracks and damages. In an instant, that inspector may give you a report certifying how well your house is for selling. If the prospective buyer walks in and brings his/her own home inspector, you are in trouble. You might even be accused of trying to tamper inspection results, which in some states could lead to legal battles.

Second, an unqualified home inspector might act as if he knows all. He might look at certain areas in the house and declare a need for maintenance or repair, though in reality, there is none. In many cases, a home inspector is asking for a repair or even a re-construction of the roofing, whereas in reality, it is in perfect condition. This way, your prospective buyer would surely be turned off and consider buying other homes instead. On your end, you might be forced to spend more dollars for unnecessary repair or re-construction.

Third, your home inspector might not be certified to the job. In some states and cities, there are regulations about certifications of home inspectors. Such measures act as protection of the market against posers and con artists. If you are hiring an unqualified home inspector, the inspection report might not be honored by anyone else. Your prospective homebuyers might require you to re-do the inspection, this time, using the services of appropriately and legally certified home inspectors.

Lastly, your home might already need repair and maintenance. You know that in most cases, if proper maintenance and repair is not performed, there might be risks and safety issues. If you are hiring an unqualified home inspector, he surely would not be able to see and determine specific areas that need repair and maintenance. This carelessness or incompetent practice might expose you and your family to possible uncalled-for danger. It is always better to be safe than sorry.

In the end, it is not advisable hiring the services of an unqualified and uncertified home inspector. You should be careful when finding and hiring inspectors. Not all inspectors should be trusted. You could save time and money hiring only the qualified and certified ones.

The Importance Of Hiring Home Inspectors Miami

An Interview with Carlos Gonzalez of Atlantic Building Inspections

miami home inspection atlantic building inspection logo

Please tell us a little bit about the foundation of your company.

Our business is based on integrity and experience. We provide an exceptional property service to the South Florida community. At the heart of our foundation is the promise that we inspect every home as if we were buying for ourselves.

Do your offer any other services other than basic home inspections?

Yes. We offer full residential and commercial pre-purchase inspections. Additionally, we offer all of the insurance inspections, pool inspections, mold inspections, Chinese drywall inspections, pre-listing inspections and septic inspections.

First off, in your opinion, why is it vitally important to have your home inspected properly?

Having a professional home inspection is the ONLY service, which works 100% for the buyer. Having your potential home inspected will provide the buyer with the information vital to making a great decision. In our experience, we have found so many “hidden” defects that otherwise would have gone unnoticed and would have cost the buyer lots of money. A thorough home inspection could save a buyer thousands of dollars.

What are the 3 problems that usually go unnoticed, that are a quick fix for homeowners?

The three most common issues are preventative roof maintenance issues, electrical issues, and plumbing issues.

I have to ask, please briefly cover why you have such a passion towards home inspections.

The home inspection business is a “feel good” business. At the end of every day I can look back and know that because I did such a good and thorough job, someone has ALL the pertinent information, which will allow
him/her make the right purchasing decision. I know that without my work good, hardworking folks would be a home “blind” only to discover expensive surprises after moving in.
