Wellborn Cabinet, Inc. featured in the 2016 Southern Living Idea House

The bathroom is many people’s comfort zones. Evidently, it will not be called comfort rooms if it is not. Many prefer this part of the home to be as spacious as possible, but, the reality is, most often than not, this room compensates to the lack thereof.

Fret not! You don’t really need to knock down some walls to expand the room. One of the most common techniques—and the most functional one too: proper cabinet and storage placement.

Here are some tips for your mind to think your bathroom is bigger than what it really is:

Choose/Paint the cabinet doors monochromatic with the lightest shade possible.

Following the theme of your bathroom, choose cabinets that goes and blends in mono-chromatically. If it’s possible, go with the lightest shade possible. The color white (or light colors) reflects light, be it natural light from the sun or supplied by lighting fixtures. If the light touch cabinet surfaces, it will bounce back, making the room seem brighter, hence bigger and more spacious. If you want to trick your mind into thinking that your bathroom is actually bigger, install white tiles, paint your walls and your ceilings white.

If you have wooden cabinetry, opt for using lighter woods as opposed to dark colored woods. A light colored wood will allow for more light to reflect off of surfaces and will not make the room look more cramped than it already is.

Kitchens are the primary target of home remodels because they are the heart of the home and offer great returns on investment. Typically kitchen remodels return between 75 and 80 percent on money invested. Smaller and simpler undertakings seem to be a better value than larger and more complicated undertakings.

One way to ensure that you get your moneys worth is to use a professional designer that can insure you know all options available and guide you to make the best ones for you. Another way is to use a professional cabinet installer so that your investment is handled and installed properly and warranties are maintained.

If your remodel requires more than a couple of different trades you may need to look into getting a good licensed co...

Just a few things to think about.

Hire a contractor who shows up on time for the estimate and seems professional and knowledgeable. Make sure the company you choose has the resources to complete your project on time. The company you select should routinely produce the quality of work you are expecting to receive (choosing the lowest price you can find will likely yield workmanship on the lower end of the scale).

Be prepared to pay a deposit up to 50 percent of the total price to initiate your contract. It will cover the contractor's large expenses like construction materials, cabinets, flooring, fixtures and crew to start your project.

Don't hire unlicensed contractors to do the job. If you do, you will have no recourse should you be unh...

New Mexico Chili Cookoff

If you can read this whole story without laughing, then there's no hope for you. I was crying by the end.

Note: Please take time to read this slowly.
If you pay attention to the first two judges,
the reaction of the third judge is even better.

For those of you who have lived in New Mexico , you know how true this is. They actually have a Chili Cook-off about the time Halloween comes around. It takes up a major portion of a parking lot at the Santa Fe Plaza Judge #3 was an inexperienced Chile taster named Frank...

I'm sure glad I didn't buy any of that Chinese import drywall how about you? Man those people have real problems. That stuff is emmiting all sorts of toxins into the air (carbon disulfide, carbonyl sulfide, hydrogen sulfide). Homeowners are being advised to move out, gut their homes or bulldose them and start over. The problem is that products imported from other countries are generally not held to the same standards as products produced here in the United States.
I'm sure glad I didn't buy any of those Chinese import cabinets how about you?

No one wants to give money away right? One often over looked item in a home is the condition of your countertop caulking. Everyone assumes the counters were caulked when they were installed and never need to be bothered with again but that's not true. Caulking only lasts so long and should be inspected and repaired as needed to insure a good moisture seal to prevent top damage.

Five dollars worth of caulking and 20 minutes now can save hundreds or even thousands of your hard earned dollars later.
