Maurice Meagher's insight:

Anyone who's lived in Halifax for a few years knows that we could get all 4 seasons in one day! That makes flooring choices important. Your mudroom needs to stand up to stand up to mud, snowy boots or wet dogs.

150+ Beautiful Designer Kitchens for Every Style | Kitchens, Bathrooms, Additions | Scoop.it
We've gathered all our best kitchens in one place – from country casual to sleek and modern. Take a look at some of our favorite kitchen design ideas.
Maurice Meagher's insight:

Your kitchen redesign is moving forward. You’ve picked out the big ticket items, like flooring and cupboards, but now it’s time to get down to brass tacks; literally.

 

The finishing touches for your kitchen — lighting, fixtures, hardware — can really pull your room together. It’s important to make sure they don’t look like afterthoughts or they can make your kitchen feel cluttered.

 

It’s also a time to get creative. These details can really show off your personality and style. White subway tiles are simple and classic, but adding an industrial or vintage sink faucet will create visual interest. These days, rules can go out the window, and mixing gold, silver, wood and metal is on trend. Work with your designer to explore your ideas and help pull them all together.

16 Kitchen Trends That Are Here to Stay

16 Kitchen Trends That Are Here to Stay | Kitchens, Bathrooms, Additions | Scoop.it
Just because it's trending doesn't mean it's not timeless. These gorgeous kitchen trends -- including minimal upper cabinetry, sparkling quartz counters, and one-of-a-kind ceiling treatments -- are guaranteed to stand the test of time.
Maurice Meagher's insight:

Are you thinking about renovating, or remodeling your Halifax kitchen?

 

You plan on staying in the home for a while, but want to make sure that your design is timeless, and appeals to potential buyers when it comes time to sell the home.

 
Below, and found in the attached article are some kitchen trends that are here to stay.
 
Solid surface countertops:
Courts, granite, and other solid surface countertops have been extremely popular, because of their aesthetic appeal, and also the low maintenance, and easy cleaning features that they add to your kitchen.
 
Open concept kitchens:
Many of our clients in Halifax, Dartmouth, Bedford, and surrounding areas are asking us to remove walls between the kitchen, and dining room, or create a more open concept between the kitchen, dining, and living room. There doesn't seem to be any indication that this trend will change.

Technology in the kitchen:
Smart appliances, smart refrigerators, and high tech has hit your favorite room in the home. Look for this trend to continue.
 
Functional kitchen islands:
If you like to entertain, or like to prepare large meals, the kitchen island has become a work horse, and a must-have feature in today's kitchen. You can incorporate a wine fridge, a sink, allow for seating, integrate lighting, and accommodate a workspace to flip up your laptop, or open your iPad.
 
LED lighting in the kitchen:
LED lights are longer lasting, and consume much less power to operate. Lighting for your cabinets, task, and ambient lighting can all improve your kitchens appeal.
 
Integrated, or concealed appliances:
Would you like your refrigerator, and appliances to seamlessly integrate with your existing kitchen cabinetry? More clients are asking us to put doors to conceal the refrigerator, and other kitchen appliances.
 
Deep, functional pull out drawers for storage:
You can never have enough storage, especially in your kitchen. Pull out drawers can be an easy way to access the appliances, and kitchen utensils that you use frequently.
Large kitchen sinks:
Who wouldn't want more room to operate in the kitchen sink? Creative designs, unique finishes, and large-format sinks, allow you to enjoy your time in the kitchen.
 
Good clean design:
Obviously, good clean design solutions never go out of style. If you need help with your Halifax kitchen renovation, don't hesitate to speak with one of our designers today. You can reach us at 902-454-2273, or find us online at CaseHalifax.com

Maurice Meagher's insight:
7 Steps for your Halifax Shower DesignLots of things to consider when thinking about having a custom, tiled shower designed for your Halifax home. Bathroom renovations can be some of the most complex projects for your home. Keep in mind that you will need skilled carpenters, tile installers, plumbers, electricians, glass fitters and more.
