How to make the most out of your appointment

Once you’ve scheduled an appointment with one of our consultants at The Bath & Kitchen Showplace, here are a few suggestions for making your visit with us the most enjoyable experience possible:

  • Bring your home plans with you to the showroom.
  • Know your allowance given by your contractor or your personal budget (plumbing, accessories and cabinet/door hardware).
  • If you know the colors and/or finishes you will be using in your home, bring samples (paint, flooring, countertops, tiles, etc.).
  • Bring magazines with photos and ideas that you like.
  • Children are welcome at any time in our showroom. However, because our selection process is an interactive experience and there is a great deal of product on display to see and touch, it may be more enjoyable for you to make other arrangements for children.

See you soon!

How to stretch your remodeling budget

Spring is an excellent time to remodel your home, especially your kitchen or bathroom, as these are the hub of the home. Also, upgrading one or both of these rooms can greatly add to your home’s resale value.

But of course, budget is huge consideration. How can you make the most of your money while not sacrificing design or quality?


This is such a cool commercial that demonstrates all that a Moen MotionSense faucet can do. It can sense movement! Does your kitchen faucet do that? Remember the last time you had meat hands and needed someone to turn on the water for you? You can upgrade your kitchen with ONE product. This one.

2013 Trends for Bathrooms

Remodeling your bathroom in 2013? Don’t forget to include a Retractable Towel Ring!

Below is an article from one of The Bath & Kitchen Showplace’s manufacturers – Moen – highlighting some of the design trends that interior designers are seeing as the “next big thing” for 2013.

Chevron patterns, glass backsplashes and retractable towel rings are just a few making their way into the latest remodels. Keep in mind that as much as you may want to incorporate the latest design trends in your home, it’s important to choose ideas that are practical and will stand the test of time. Here are some suggestions on the freshest finds out there.

The time for bold, yet neutral Chevron has come! This pattern is showing up everywhere: on kitchen walls, backsplashes, floors, throw rugs, pillows and shower curtains. Most Chevron patterns alternate black then white then black, but by playing around with alternative colors, you can lessen the impact of the design and achieve a more serene look.

Another surprising look involves the resurgence of wallpaper and the introduction of wall decals. Since the 60s, people have been using wallpaper to add an accent and some personality to a room. Both wallpaper and wall decals are now removable and a popular option to spice up your home…

If you’re looking for a convenient and eco-friendly upgrade, consider Moen’s MotionSense faucet. With just a wave of your hand, you’ll trigger the flow of water. Wave your hand again, and you’ll turn it off. Its state-of-the-art technology helps to maximize performance, minimize waste and make everyday routines faster and easier…

Another smart innovation that’s quickly growing in popularity: Moen’s Retractable Towel Ring. If you’re tired of hand towels cluttering countertops, doorknobs and floors, this is your solution. The ring secures your hand towels in place, expands out to 11″ and effortlessly retracts back to its original position. It works well in every room with a faucet, including the bathroom, kitchen, utility room and garage.

Rounding out our list of updates is the new nature-inspired bathroom. Think rustic tiles. A rock wall in the shower. Wicker baskets. A range of earthy patterns and colors. They’re all designed to achieve the feeling of a relaxing, private spa. It’s easy to create a beautiful room that feels like you’re entering an enchanted grotto or canyon.

These ideas represent just a few of the trends that are destined to become traditions. You can feel confident knowing that as current as they are, these improvements will easily stay in vogue for years to come.
