Construction & Maintenance    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In an era when going away on vacation is not in the budget, many homeowners are finding it makes fiscal sense to turn the master bath into a spa environment with high-end amenities such as soaking tubs, saunas, whirlpools, granite countertops, double sinks, marble and tile flooring, and his and her dressing areas. According to the American Lighting Association, the finishing touch to a redecorated bathroom is complementary lighting that is highly functional and attractive. In response to the increased demand for luxurious bath amenities, lighting manufacturers now offer more high-end fixtures than ever, making this the perfect time to create a splashy bath. More

Smart design makes furniture work for you
The Denver Post    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
There's a lot to be said for multitasking—especially when your furniture is doing it. A table that stores its own leaves, and maybe the silverware, as well; a cupboard that tucks a rack for linens into a pullout panel at its side; a mirror that stashes jewelry behind it; a bench that opens to storage beneath; or an ottoman that morphs into a bed. It's value added to the price tag—a two-fer or a three-fer. And it's smart design. More

Manifest Tech Blog    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
