The living finish and benefits of copper has made it a highly sought-after material for sinks, tubs, fixtures, and decoration in today’s bathroom. Copper brings warmth and beauty to any bathroom, whether your aesthetic is contemporary, modern, vintage, or traditional. The versatility of copper makes it a top choice for many designers, architects, and custom home builders. With copper, you have many variations of design available to you, and can incorporate sleek, angular lines or ornate, delicate curves – whatever your vision is for your copper sink or bathtub.
Contemporary bathroom design is very popular today, and for good reason. Geometric shapes and patterns, combined with angular and flowing designs for fixtures, furniture and countertops, clean lines, minimal colors, and mid-century furniture, plus a focus on high-quality natural or synthetic materials, are all hallmarks of modern bath design. These elements lend themselves to a clean, minimalist aesthetic perfect for any bathroom.
Fall is in the air around the country and soon the snow will be upon us! Cold weather is bringing in those summer swimmers to do their training inside to "share a lane" at the neighborhood swimming pool and that means it is about to get "cozy" with you and the few others you now will be swimming with. Not only will you need to share a lane but you may also need to speed up your pace or slow it waaay down so you're not bumping into each other.
Having a comfortable, luxurious bathroom is a goal many homeowners have. Remodeling a guest or master bathroom is a chance to create a space that is unique to your style and needs.

One of the benefits of a cold plunge pool is reduced soreness and recovery time following a workout. If you have a hot tub, steam room, or dry sauna at home or place of business, you may want to consider adding a cold plunge pool, also. Alternating between immersion in hot and cold water is called “contrast hydrotherapy” and is also known as hot/cold immersion therapy. This is a form of treatment where either an injured or sore limb, or the entire body, is immersed in ice water followed by immediate immersion in warm water. This procedure is repeated several times, alternating between hot and cold water. Both amateur and professional athletes use this treatment method to stimulate blood circulation and reduce inflammation.
