The kitchen is the heart of the home. Memories are made over elaborate meals and small snacks or cups of coffee. It’s also a part of the home often cited for selling homes. You want your kitchen to be beautiful and timeless. Thanks to two kitchen countertop trends, you can have a kitchen that will by stylish for years to come.
Wood countertops are a popular choice. Many people who buy Heritage Wood countertops from Atlanta Kitchen desire the surface for the warmth it brings to the kitchen. A popular design trend is to select a granite, quartz or other nonporous surface for countertops along the wall, then select a richly-hued wood countertop to highlight the island. Atlanta Kitchen offers wood countertops in a variety of colors and designs, even offering checkered countertops and countertops made from reclaimed wood. If you don’t have an island, another popular trend is to top the breakfast bar with wood and have the countertop a different solid surface. Read More→

The bathroom. It’s a room you look at everyday, multiple times a day. Do your gold faucets seem dated? Is the tile on the walls beginning to chip? Do you shudder every time you look at your farble (faux marble)?
The bathroom is small enough that you can give it a substantial makeover without spending a fortune. Let’s chat for a bit about different parts of your bathroom.
Showers and Tubs
Your shower keeps you clean and looking your best, shouldn’t you return the favor? If your shower’s door is outdated or has a dented frame, or if you are using a shower curtain that somehow continues to attract mildew, consider updating with new shower doors or a sleek frameless glass enclosure. Atlanta Glass and Mirror can help you find the perfect solution for your specifications and price range. If you want to indulge in a luxury cast marble tub, Atlanta Marble Manufacturing can find you the perfect fit.
