Remodeling Ideas – How to Design a Luxury Shower

When it comes to adding luxury touches to our homes, bathrooms are making a splash. For many people, luxury showers are just as important as getting the perfect tub – and there are some fantastic options available! Here are some remodeling ideas from the specialists in countertop edge options.

Glass Enclosed Showers 

Throw that shower curtain away and invest in glass panels! This is an update that instantly modernizes your shower, creates a more open feel in your bathroom and – importantly – is easy to keep clean and hygienic. You can even enclose your shower in glass panels on each side for an even more light and airy feel.

Bring in Nature 

While beautiful outdoor showers may not work for your home, you can still update it to bring in plenty of natural light and even a view of the garden. By adding a window or skylight, your bathroom will be instantly brightened, and you’ll feel even more refreshed and revitalized.

Steam Away the Stress 

Steam is incredibly relaxing, and a luxury steam shower can bring this spa experience right into your own home. They’re remote controlled, so you can set it to the perfect temperature with ease. Remember to add a bench to your shower design to give you a space to relax in comfort, and a window to allow for fresh air circulation.

Luxury Materials 

Showers are fairly small spaces, so it’s easier to add touches of luxury without spending too much. Splash out on stone, marble or expensive tiles and you’ll be amazed at the result. Your chosen material should reach all the way to the ceiling for a uniform, high-end look. River stones also make for a beautiful shower floor and really bring that nature-inspired spa look to life.

4 Challenges Every Kitchen Remodel Faces

Remodeling a kitchen adds considerable value to your home and quality of life, but it does come with its own challenges. Here are some insights from our team of specialists in countertop edge options.

  1. Plumbing: It’s only when the remodel is well under way that many people come across damaged or rusted water pipes that they were unaware of. Of course, it’s a good thing you find them and can get them replaced, as these can lead to leaks and mold in your home, but it’s often an unexpected additional cost. Another challenge occurs when you want your plumbing appliances moved around in your kitchen, as this means new piping and drainage needs to be installed, which can get costly.
  2. Non-compliant wiring: In the decades since many of our homes were built, the demand for electrical supply has skyrocketed. Unless your home has been re-wired to handle this demand, chances are that it no longer complies with regulations and will be unable to safely manage the demands of your household. Old or insufficient electrical wires are a huge safety hazard and can easily cause fires, so it’s a good idea to have a full inspection as you remodel.
  3. Badly fitting cabinets and countertops: As kitchens are remodeled over the years, homeowners choose different cabinet and countertop sizes. When you remodel, chances are that you’re going to see issues like mismatched paint, damage to walls and ceilings from where the cabinets have been removed, and even missing or mismatched wall studs where the new cabinets need to be installed. With a touch of creativity and a good contractor, you can re-plaster, repaint or even hide issues with an eye-catching backsplash.
  4. Walls, floors and ceilings that just aren’t straight: This is an issue that is surprisingly common, especially in older homes. It can affect all your measurements and you may need to refinish your floor or raise/lower your cabinets to ensure you have an even work surface. The best way to face this challenge is to ensure your contractor has plenty of experience with older kitchens and can measure for issues early on and suggest affordable fixes.

How To Create A Crafting Room

Make the perfect hobby and craft room with these tips from our Kuehn Bevel team, the specialists in countertop edge profiles.

  • Sturdy table: This is the most important item for your crafting room, and it should be big, level and offer plenty of surface space onto which you can spread your crafting materials.
  • Shelving: Whatever your crafting hobby, you’re going to need lots of shelves to keep different materials and tools. We recommend stocking them with clear, plastic boxes so it’s easy to find, organize and access your materials.
  • Countertops: If you have the space, countertops are a great addition to any crafting space. They allow you to map out your work in stages more easily, and utilize different stations without moving too much. Be sure to install these at the right height so that you aren’t bent over them at an angle that’s bad for your back. They should also be made of a hardwearing material that can withstand heavy work, like laminate countertops.
  • Good lighting: There should ideally be both natural and artificial light to ensure that you don’t suffer from eyestrain. Natural light is healthier for mind and body, and is less stressful to the eyes, while artificial light is a great help for darker corners and close work at night. Natural light is also ideal for photographing your work.
  • Pegboard: These are invaluable crafting tools and can be used for anything from hooking up tools in an easy-to-reach storage space, mounting patterns, and even tracking your work. Another great tool-storage trick is to fix a magnetic strip near your work station to store scissors and other metal tools.
  • An ergonomic chair: If you spend a lot of time sitting while you craft, you’ll need an ergonomic chair that will properly support your body so that you don’t end up with back pain. Try to find one with wheels too, as this is a great help when it comes to moving from station to station.

High definition granite like laminate adds the wow factor

Laminate countertops that look like granite are no longer the fashion faux pas they used to be, and that’s all thanks to significant advances in design and manufacturing technologies. Now, even the most discerning client can get the look of beautiful natural stone with all the advantages of laminate.

Top manufacturers like Formica, Wilsonart and others use real stone samples as inspiration for their designs, mimicking the real deal down to its very last detail. In fact, many people struggle to tell the difference between granite and laminate examples.

Economical and DIY-friendly, these countertops can also come with a range of expertly manufactured laminate countertop edging options to give them even more high-street appeal and added durability.

How does laminate compare to other granite alternatives? 

When you are looking for natural stone countertops but don’t want the expense or difficulty of granite, there are other options out there that offer significant benefits over this stone product. While laminate is one of them, there are also solid surface and engineered composite surfaces to consider. So how do they measure up?

  • Solid surface kitchen countertops: These are manufactured using a combination of stone dust, resins and pigments to create a seamless countertop that resembles stone. It has a uniform design, so you get none of the variation that you do in natural stone, but it is very strong. It’s more expensive than laminate, however, and needs to be installed by a professional.
  • Engineered countertops: These are similar to solid surface countertops in that they both use a resin, but engineered countertops add natural granite into the mix to make the finished product look more like natural stone. Because the slabs are set, not cut out of stone, you get a seamless finish. Like solid surface, however, you should be prepared to pay a lot more for this than you would for laminate, and you will need a professional to come and install it.

Get the perfect finish to your granite look countertops with our edging options! 

At Kuehn Bevel, we offer expertly manufactured kitchen countertop edge options and profiles to enhance and protect your investment. Whether you need laminate countertop edging options or Formica ideal edges, we can offer you a design, edge profile and final product that adds style to your space without breaking your budget.

What are the most beautiful, high-end granite like laminate countertop options?

Granite like laminate is the perfect option for anyone looking for a high-end look for their kitchen or bathroom without having to break the budget. These are the top picks for the some of the most attractive choices out there, from the specialists in countertop edge options.

  • Blackstone Granite: This is a Formica laminate that offers a textured look in black with grey and lighter flecks that give it depth and drama. It’s a classic stone that looks great with almost any style space.
  • Brazilian Brown Granite: Another Formica laminate countertop option, this offers a warmer look with equal mix of flecks of greys, brown and white.
  • Bahia Granite: This is a great option from Wilsonart that gives your space a deep, dramatic look with a true black color warmed up with smaller flecks of golden browns.
  • Santo Azul: Also from Wilsonart, this is a great option if you are looking to enhance blues and grays in your space. It’s an unusual and elegant granite look that is softened by flecks of golden brown.
  • Blue Storm: If you want an intense and modern look for your countertops, this is the option for you. With dramatic swirls of golden creams and brown in a deep grey background, this stone look is one in a million.

From classic to ornate – Choose custom countertop edge profiles

One of the most important decorative and protective aspects of your kitchen remodel is investing in high quality, custom made laminate countertop edging. However, as specialists in crafting laminate countertop edge profiles, Kuehn Bevel isn’t here to give home owners and interior designers a one-size-fits-all solution. Instead, our suppliers encourage clients to express their creativity through the widest range of designer brands, colors, profile options and materials in order to develop something that is truly unique to your space – and exactly what you are looking for.

Decorative edges for laminate countertops

It’s not difficult to see why laminate is the most popular countertop surface – hygienic, durable, practical and available in a huge range of cutting-edge designs, this is a surface built to last the test of time without breaking your budget. Standard laminate edges, however, simply aren’t doing your investment justice. Not only are these edges limited in their design, they are often simply not crafted to the standards your home or business deserves.

Using state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment, we develop edging profiles that come in a variety of designs, including single bevel, double bevel, bullnose, double bullnose, curved and straight edges. We can create these out of matching or contrasting laminate, as we work with all the top brands, or we can utilize wood (in a range of stains) or solid surface to give you an elegant contrast. In fact, we can even combine materials using inserts to give your space an even more custom appearance.

In addition, our edges are manufactured to perfectly enhance the design of your countertops, creating a seamless and harmonious effect without the tell-tale brown line at the join that so often compromises the look of laminate surfaces.

Corian, beveled edge and granite like laminate profiles for your remodel 

Kuehn Bevel is a leader in the manufacture of decorative laminate countertop edging products for laminate, solid surface and wood countertops. Our aim is to give our clients access to beautiful and stylish products that deliver the best in protective countertop edging and interior design but without the hefty price tag.
