This kitchen is transformed to a gorgeous, modern space with this unbelievable Granite Transformations makeover.
Can you believe this is the same kitchen? With new countertops, mosaic tile backsplash and refaced cabinets, this is a prime example of the incredible transformative powers of Granite Transformations’ kitchen remodeling services.
One of the most important things in your kitchen is your countertop. With our granite surface, you get a material that is incredibly beautiful yet functional. The benefits of this surface is due to its ForeverSeal finish, which makes this low maintenance, nonporous surface more heat, stain and scratch resistant than others while never needing to be sealed again.
Perhaps the most dramatic change to the kitchen is the cabinets. Most would see these outdated cabinets and immediately think they need to be torn out and replaced. However, what you may not realize is that the better and more cost effective option is to reface the cabinets. We love the clean, classic finish of these white cabinets to go along with the countertops. Finally, the gorgeous and earth-toned mosaic tile backsplash adds the perfect finishing touch to add dimension to this kitchen remodel.
A remodeling project like this one would take weeks, possibly months, to complete with other remodeling companies. With Granite Transformations, this remodel was installed within one week due to our unique installation process which minimizes the disruption to your home and life. Plus, our products are backed by a lifetime warranty, giving you an unparalleled value for your home remodel.

Designing for small spaces can be difficult, and nowhere is it as difficult as the bathroom. With a small bedroom or living room space, you can at least choose furniture and create a layout that maximizes the interior space – but that’s not the case when you have a small bathroom.
No matter what, you’re still going to need a sink, toilet, storage space, and a shower at minimum. And unless you’re looking to put some serious dollars into the pocket of your local plumber, the interior plumbing of your home dictates that you’re stuck with the existing layout as well.
Although getting the most out of a small bathroom space can be difficult, you can create the illusion of a roomy space by applying basic principles of interior design and adding a touch of your own creativity. The key is to examine each and every element of your bathroom with an eye towards elimination and integration. Does the item take up more space than necessary? Could its functionality be integrated with another item? Could it be tucked away somewhere else?
You’ll also want to ensure that you eliminate any features that jut out into your already small space – this makes it feel more cluttered and cramped. Combine this with the right color combinations and lighting to create the illusion of a spacious retreat.
Whether you’re looking to remodel your bathroom, or just add some finishing touches, here are some additional DIY ideas that you can implement to get the most of your small bathroom space.
1. Use Narrow Wall Shelves
While your first instinct may be to tuck your storage space into the vanity or in a medicine cabinet and eliminate shelves altogether, narrow wall shelves let you maximize interior space while still looking stylish. They’re also extremely easy to install.
A secondary benefit is that you’ll have your key toiletries easily accessible, without needing a large counter space. Use narrow wall shelves to store your soaps, shampoos, cotton balls, towels, and lotion, while leaving your more private toiletries for the vanity.

2. Switch To A Pedestal Sink
There’s certainly a trade off here – on the one hand, a vanity offers hidden storage space and more counter surface. On the other hand, it takes up unnecessary space and makes the bathroom feel smaller. While a pedestal sink may not always be the best choice for your overall design scheme, it’s certainly something to consider.

3. Switch To A Floating Vanity
If a pedestal sink isn’t the right look for you, consider switching to a small floating vanity. This will give your bathroom a more modern and spacious feel, while also giving you some easily accessible storage space under the vanity – a place to tuck your trash can for example.

4. Use A Clear Shower Curtain/Door
You can’t magically expand your bathroom space – or can you? If you have an opaque shower curtain or shower door, you’re just closing off your existing bathroom space. If you want your cozy little bathroom space to feel a little bigger, just add a clear shower curtain/shower door. Your bathroom will instantly feel a whole lot bigger.

5. Choose Soft, Pale Color Schemes
Choosing softer, pale color schemes will help give your bathroom the illusion of space. This certainly doesn’t mean your bathroom has to be painted a flowery pink or all white, but it does mean you’ll want to avoid using bold, strong colors. For background surfaces like the floor and walls, choose from a palette of white, neutral colors, and pastels. Add some brightly colored accessories and towels for accents in order to add some “pop”.

Today’s decorating trends are quite eclectic. There is no specific formula or any proper method to “put things together”. The only rule is that there are no rules except one: Follow your instincts.
If you are comfortable with your ideas, go for it.
An example that comes to mind is the use of log furniture in a modern decorating scheme. Depending on the approach you take, you can take on a rustic log cabin theme and pull it all together with accessories and appointments that add color as well as unique touches of style while taking away the heavy impression that log furniture can leave with you.
A good balance of styles can make your home comfy and truly enjoyable. Picture a kitchen/dining space with a beautiful natural pine log table and chairs set in a space decorated with contemporary rustic cabinetry and an attractive granite countertop.
The natural look of log furniture can be dramatic when set against the right background. This rustic feel can be carried out throughout the home and mixed and matched throughout. Rustic tables with legs that have been whitewashed can make a visual impression when the tabletops are topped with a style of granite similar to that used for the kitchen cabinets.
Because granite is a natural material, it will work well when used in combination with any number of materials. Rustic cabinets are an ideal base from which a theme can be fully developed. The great thing about granite is the many
colors that nature has endowed it with. Most often, you will find a highlight color within the granite that can be used as the basis for color schemes throughout the home.
