You'll Want to Count the Ways you Love your New Bath
Need one more reason to hate our current drought? How about because you can't spend 30 minutes in this shower surrounded by travertine stacked stone, basking in the spa-like ambience created for this bathroom designed by Rebecca Rollins Interiors (RRI)? Or not being able to draw a full tub of warm water three times a day so you can relax and count the number of highly-upgraded oil-rubbed bronzed fixtures and elegant glass cabinet knobs that complement this most intriguing granite? Drought or not, you'll never believe this could be your home - until it is! Let Rebecca Rollins Interiors make it your reality.

Beauty & Durability Unite for the Best in New Bathroom Flooring Options
Alterna premium tile flooring is the innovative alternative to natural stone and ceramic tile. Like stone and ceramic, it is incredibly beautiful and durable. But a comfortable surface makes Alterna tiles warmer to the touch, kinder to your feet and easier to care for in any room of your home. You can keep it clean using Armstrong's Once and Done! Alterna represents a beautiful variety of natural stone designs and color palettes. Light or dark, warm or cool, subtle or striking, the choice is yours. Beyond color and style, patterns add a whole new dimension of personalization. Install square tiles in a diamond pattern. Use rectangular tiles in a herringbone design. Mix sizes and shapes to create windmills and borders. Durable engineered stone construction makes Alterna tough enough to stand up to a lifetime of activity in your home and is manufactured in Kankakee, Illinois.

Little Grout Lines make a Big Impact
If your grout is grungy, buffing your tile to a high-gloss shine isn't going to make your bathroom look better. You could try to scrub 50 linear yards of grout lines with a Magic Eraser, but we prefer magic of a whole different variety when it comes to our private space. Magic Maintenance offers steam cleaning of your grout, which removes deeply-embedded bacteria along with the soap scum, mildew and mold that are probably taking up residence in your shower. Your grout will sparkle with hygiene and cleanliness when they're done. Magic Maintenance 259-3373

Timeless Touches that Last Forever
The products used in this bathroom are porcelain - but they look just like real stone. Real stone is timeless but requires some maintenance. Porcelain is one of the strongest materials you can use in a bathroom and it is easy to maintain and will last forever. It is simple to wipe down, easy to clean and does not require sealers or special treatments, though a sealer on the grout is used to make life a whole lot easier. The countertop is quartz; it too will be around forever and is impervious to water penetration and stains. The cabinets are stained and then sealed for a longer-lasting finish.

Powder Rooms are Prettier with Paint
High-traffic spaces like powder rooms get a lot of use, especially if you have kids in the house. As is so often the case, the littlest people often make the biggest messes, leaving dirty finger prints near light switches, splashing soap bubbles on walls and leaving their mark around the commode. You need a paint that can stand up to frequent scrubbings in a room like this, so don't skimp on the best. Custom finishes by Magic Maintenance Inc. Painting can ensure that your walls look satiny and are more than ready to stand up to whatever life (Or your kid.) throws at it.

Silk Plants are the No-stress Design Alternative to the Real Thing
Most people want their home bathroom to be a luxurious retreat where they can escape from the
stresses of everyday life. While this lush feeling can be gained through adding natural elements, the mess and frailty of real plants or flowers usually makes it more trouble than it's worth.

Which brings us to the incredibly realistic silk plants and stunning silk floral arrangements at Aldik Home. Enjoy the best of both worlds with natural beauty that is maintenance free and looks gorgeous all year long.

Whether it's a simple fern giving off a tropical vibe or a sculptural succulent adding some Southwestern intrigue, silk plants break up the clean lines and sterile look of most bathrooms. If you're really looking to add drama, an orchid arrangement makes a luxurious statement in any room. Aldik Home's talented design team regularly crafts dazzling works of art and is happy and ready to work directly with you.

Welcome luxury into your bathroom with quality silk flowers and plants. Since they look and feel so real, no one will have to know how easy it was.

Bring your Bath Up to Date
This dated bathroom needed a lighter and brighter look. Sound familiar? The homeowners desired more storage along with better lighting and a new shower to replace the existing small tub. A new window and can lights with wall sconces helped to light up the room. Marble-look porcelain tile with a glass and stone border grace the shower walls, back-splash and floor. Frosty Carrina Quartz by Caesarstone was used for the counter tops, shower seat and dam. Polished chrome plumbing fixtures by Kohler include a Moxi rain head which includes a Bluetooth speaker so you can enjoy your favorite tunes while you shower. And a frameless shower door with clear glass helps the room look more spacious. Custom cabinetry in a bright white with a mirror framed to match complete this new brighter bath. Design, fabrication and installation was completed by Woodward Kitchen and Bath.
