What Is The Difference Between Granite And Marble Countertops?

What Is The Difference Between Granite And Marble Countertops?

When it comes to kitchen renovations replacing your countertops is almost always at the top of the priority list. There are many different materials that can be utilized for your kitchen countertops, butcherblock has become popular in the past couple years. But, two of the most popular options have always been marble and granite, and a question which we get asked very often is “which material should you go for“?

Both granite and marble are natural stone and have their own distinct beautiful designs. When it comes to selecting the right slab for your countertops, it can easily become a really tough decision. However, before you can decide which one is best for your kitchen, you should understand the difference between the two types of stone.

1. Origin of Granite and Marble

Granite is igneous rock that is formed deep within the earth due to solidification and cooling of Magma. It takes millions of years for this rock to be formed and it becomes hard due to heating and then slow cooling over a large period of time.

Marble on the other hand, is a metamorphic stone that is formed by transformation of sedimentary stone. The sedimentary rock was buried under soil for a long period of time. There it remained under intense heat and pressure and thus was transformed into marble. Due to in addition of different impurities you can find marble slabs with different tints and shades of colours.

2. Appearance

Both marble and granite can have a similar appearance, in most cases granite will have darker shades and more variances in patterns, and more differentiating identifiers due to impurities. There is a natural color variation that is different in two stones, marble tends to have colourful veins that flow through it, while Granite has colors that are spaced out throughout the stone.

3. Strength and Durability

The strength and durability of each of these stones depends greatly upon the process they were formed. Both granite and marble will withstand the use and wear thrown at them as a kitchen countertop, but they still differ from each other. Granite is technically the harder of the two stones, and better resists any scratches that may occur from cutting and working on the countertop. Marble on the other hand may not be able to resist some hard strokes and wear that granite can withstand.

4. Stain Resistance

As natural stone both marble and granite are porous materials, and will require periodic sealing to prevent any staining of your countertops. Marble has metamorphic features and thus it is a more porous material compared to granite.

Ultimately, the choice between granite and marble is up to your design and style preferences. Both materials are gorgeous and can be cut to fit pretty much any kitchen counter style. They are both hard natural stone that can withstand the wear and tear of everyday use. They both also require minimum maintenance such as periodic sealing to ensure you get the most out of your countertop. So, when it comes to choosing between marble or granite, go with the material that best meets your style, budget, and timeline.

5 Bathroom Renovation Ideas

5 Bathroom Renovation Ideas

An updated bathroom has the ability to change how you feel about and how others perceive your home. Your bathroom may be one of the smaller rooms in your home, but it is also one of the most important rooms as well. This is where you spend some of your most private moments, and a place for peace and even relaxation. However, when it comes to bathroom renovations, there are many options and styles you need to decide on. Everything from the style of toilet to the hardware that will help pull the room together. These decisions can leave you feeling a little overwhelmed and perhaps even confused.

To help you navigate this process, we have put together a list of 5 bathroom renovation ideas that will help turn your bathroom into the bathroom of your dreams.

1. Create the Feeling of a Larger Space

No matter the size of your bathroom, you can always make it feel more spacious with a well-placed mirror. Installing a large mirror will not only give the illusion of larger space, it will also help brighten up your bathroom by reflecting more light. A larger mirror will also provide more space when getting ready in the morning or to go out, especially if you share the bathroom with someone else.

2. Not Just Any Bathtub Will Do

Your bathtub is not just where you can lay back and relax. It also has the potential of being the focal point of your bathroom. With multiple designs, styles, and functions available to select from, you need to choose wisely. Consider how you will utilize the tub (do you enjoy a long relaxing soak, or perhaps you enjoy the message jets have to offer, or you may not be a bath person at all) and select a tub that will meet your needs but that will also compliment the interior décor of your bathroom.

3. Pick Your Porcelain Wisely

The importance a toilet plays in your bathroom renovation should not be underestimated. Just like your bathtub, there are plenty of options when it comes to choosing a toilet. Style, design and function are the main differentiators. From low flow toilets designed to conserve water consumption to toilets with built in bidets for that extra clean feeling, your choice needs to be made on what features are important to you. A few other options that you should give some consideration to are if you like the look of a one-piece or two-piece toilet, and if you are more comfortable sitting on a round or elongated bowl shape?

4. Hardware

The hardware you choose for your bathroom renovation will add the final touches to the room. Choose cupboard handles, knobs, towel racks, toilet paper holders, and faucets that help accentuate the room. No matter if you choose a classic look or a more modern design, choosing hardware that doesn’t mesh well together will leave your bathroom feeling chaotic and take away from the tranquil ambiance you are looking for.

5. Increase Storage Space

You can always use extra storage space for all the items we all store in our bathrooms. Installing a floor to ceiling cabinet as well as cabinet organizers in your bathroom will help you store towels, toiletries, extra toilet paper, cleaning supplies, and everything else you need access to properly.

What is the Best Countertop Material for a Kitchen?

What is the Best Countertop Material for a Kitchen?

A question we receive very often is what is the best countertop material for my kitchen renovation? This is a tough question to answer without first understanding your needs and wants for your new kitchen. With that being said, below we will highlight the key factors you should consider when choosing a countertop material for your kitchen renovation.

Let’s start by reviewing the most common countertop materials used in kitchen renovations today:

  1. Granite 2. Marble 3. Quartz 4. Soapstone 5. Tile 6. Laminate 7. Recycled Glass

Each of the above countertop materials has its own pros and cons. With so many great options available, it is easy to see why some people have a hard time choosing the right option for their new kitchen. 

Here are the factors that should be considered when choosing the best countertop material for your kitchen renovations.

1. Functionality

A major factor that must be prioritized when choosing the best countertop material for your

kitchen renovation is what purpose you need your countertop to perform. If you do a lot of cooking and or baking in your kitchen you will need a material that will provide a surface that compliments your work in the kitchen and stand up to the heat from pots and pans, allow for food preparation and so on. After all, you don’t want to be looking for accessories to protect your countertop when you are in the middle of preparing a feast.

2. Aesthetics

Countertops are a backdrop for the kitchen. As a result, the material should contribute to the

overall appeal and ambiance of your kitchen. The material you choose should help enhance the new look you are trying to achieve with your renovation.

3. Durability

The kitchen quite often becomes the gathering place for families and for guests alike. The countertop should be able to not only withstand wear from cooking and food preparation but also from the additional use as a gathering place.

4. Heat Resistance

This one can fall into functionality, but it is so important that we needed to call it out again. Being able to place a hot pot or tray directly onto your countertop is a big benefit in the kitchen. You don’t want to be looking for a heat resistant trivet to protect your new countertop every time you are in the kitchen. 

5. Ease of Maintenance

Some countertop materials require more maintenance than others, for example, any natural stone product is porous, so a countertop made of stone will need to be sealed annually to prevent discolouration and stains on the material.  Choosing a material that meets your maintenance expectations will help alleviate any potential frustrations with the material later on. Choosing a material that is easy to clean and keep in top condition without the fear of damaging it easily, should be a priority.

Choosing the best countertop material really does depend on your kitchen renovation needs and wants. There isn’t one material fits all, however, there is one material that is wildly popular, and that is Quartz. For many, it is considered the best countertop material as it is very attractive, available in a wide selection of colours and designs, has the natural stone look but without the annual maintenance required by sealing natural stone materials. Quartz is made from quartz, resin, and polymers to create a nonporous surface that can withstand the busy kitchen activities. This easy to maintain, beautiful and durable material also costs less per square foot than marble, granite, or soapstone making quartz the number one choice for many planning a kitchen renovation.

5 Design Tips to Know Before Remodeling Your Bathroom

5 Design Tips to Know Before Remodeling Your Bathroom

Who doesn’t get excited about planning a bathroom remodel? After all, your bathroom is where many of your most private moments take place. And for some, it is the only truly alone time they have. So, having a bathroom that combines style and function is ever so important. We understand that bathroom renovation projects can turn out to be a challenge at times. This is why we asked our designers to share some of their tips and tricks to help keep your bathroom remodel planning, fun and exciting.

We look to inspire you to invest your budget wisely while still designing a stylish, relaxing space!

1. Avoid Positioning the Toilet in Front of the Door

Something that all of our designers had in their notes was to avoid placing the toilet directly in front of the door. You may think this tip is based around privacy, and even though this is true, the reason for this is many people keep their bathroom door open when the room is not in use. As a result, your visitors will more than likely be staring at your toilet at some point, as they walk around your home. No matter how nice your toilet is, you do not want it to be a focal point. Instead you can redirect their attention with a vanity with an ornate mirror positioned in front of the door. This will provide a welcoming vibe to your bathroom, when the door is left open.

2. Ensure the Space is Well Lit

Lighting can do wonders, especially if you have a small bathroom. Another popular tip from our designers is to include multiple lighting sources in your bathroom redesign. This will ensure the space is well lit. By utilizing a warmer light tone, you create a spa-like ambiance, with an extra touch of style.

3. Pay Close Attention to Your Sink’s Height

A common mistake in bathroom remodel, is positioning the sink at an incorrect height. Most countertops are set around 32 to 34 inches from the floor. But, with the popularity of above counter mounted sink bowls, the additional height of the sink needs to be taken into consideration. Otherwise, you may find that your sink is at an uncomfortable height, and younger family members may not be able to reach the faucet.

4. Choose an Oversized Shower Over a Small Tub

If you have limited space in your bathroom, a large soaker tub is definitely not an option. But, before you consider having a smaller tub installed with a shower head above, think about if you will really enjoy the smaller tub or even use it. Instead, choose to have an oversized shower with multiple shower heads installed. This design will offer up additional space, without removing the benefit from the spa-like amenity. After all, who wouldn’t enjoy relaxing under a waterfall shower head in their new bathroom?

5. Add Some Extravagant Touches

A great renovation project is always pulled together by the smaller details. We are not saying to blow your budget on high-end finishes, but rather find those unique pieces that will give the room character. Consider upgrading the hardware on your vanity or installing luxurious walls sconces or even incorporating ornate window coverings. There are so many possibilities to add a touch of character and class to your redesigned bathroom.

Planning a bathroom remodel may have you a little tense, but the thought of the finished product should excite you. There are many design tips available to help you with your planning, but if you are finding it difficult to come up with a design that meets your needs and wants, our team at KBC Solutions will work with you to help build a plan and design that brings your dream bathroom to life.

What is the Difference Between Refacing and Refinishing Kitchen Cabinets?

What is the Difference Between Refacing and Refinishing Kitchen Cabinets?

Are you planning a kitchen renovation, and considering upgrading your kitchen cabinets? Do you want to change your cabinet style without replacing the entire cabinet? Are you contemplating between cabinet refacing and cabinet refinishing? This article aims to share details on both options to help you make an informed decision.

When it is time for a kitchen upgrade, you will have multiple decisions to make. When it comes to setting a budget, separating your needs and wants prior to meeting potential kitchen renovation contractors will help you prioritize what’s important for the new kitchen.

Cabinets are a major component of your kitchen’s functionality and aesthetics. They can also take up a large part of your renovation budget, if replacing them. There is a potential to save some money upgrading the existing cabinets. Your options here are cabinet refacing or cabinet refinishing.

Cabinet Refacing

Cabinet refacing involves replacing the external surfaces of your current cabinets. This includes all cabinet doors, drawer fronts, hardware, face frames, and end panels. Laminates or wood veneers are usually used to reface the cabinets. A key aspect of refacing your cabinets, is ensuring that all the refaced components match with each other. This is a great option, especially if you have damaged cabinet doors and drawers.

Cabinet Refinishing

If your kitchen cabinet doors and drawers are still in great condition, but you would like to change the look of your kitchen, cabinet refinishing may be the best option for you. Cabinet refinishing involves changing the color or finish of existing cabinets by painting or staining them. All the original materials are reused, so you must ensure that your cabinets do not have any cracks, dents, chips, cuts, or gouges before choosing this option.

To sum up the above, the difference between refacing and refinishing your existing kitchen cabinets is that refacing involves putting new pieces on the existing frames and changing
the doors and drawer fronts. Refinishing on the other hand focuses only on updating the
existing finish or color of the cabinets. No parts are replaced.

Refacing your cabinets is a great way to save money on your kitchen renovation when there is minor visible damage, refinishing is the more affordable solution, as long as your cabinets are in good condition.

Choosing between refacing or refinishing your existing kitchen cabinets, is based on your specific situation. Your desired look, budget, and the condition of your existing cabinets will all play a role in your decision.

2. Simplified Storage

Under sink bathroom cabinets tend to be jam packed, and unorganized. A trend we have seen this year is to simplify bathroom storage by utilizing space more efficiently and eliminating open storage spaces. Floor to ceiling cabinets and shelves will help keep your toiletries and towels organized. Keeping the countertop, cabinets, and hidden storage areas more organized will help the entire room look and feel more open and provide a more relaxing environment.

3. Floating Vanities

Floating bathroom vanities have been popular for some time now, and they continue to be in demand. With new designs and built-in compartments for organizing and storage, you do not need to give up important storage space to achieve the refined look floating vanities provide.

4. Black Is In

Grey was an extremely popular bathroom colour choice over the past couple years, 2020 has seen darker shades move up as the popular colour choice. Black is bold and pops just the right amount when mixed in with a classic white bathtub, sink, or tile. Everything from faucets to towel racks, mirrors and beyond are now available in black, and people are loving it.

5. Colour Accents

If you are now quite ready to embrace black in your bathroom, another popular trend for 2020 is to leverage bright and colourful accents in the bathroom. Teal, pink, blue, and green are all popular choices as the pair up effortlessly with neutral shades. These bright pops of colour are a fun way to break up an otherwise plain room, but still, maintain a classic look. Specific colours can even help enhance your mood, if you are looking to relax, or perhaps boost your creativity, pops of certain colours can help.

6. Not Just Your Standard Mirror

Unique mirror shapes and designs have increased in popularity and are available in a variety of forms and sizes, allowing your imagination to run wild when it comes to incorporating a visually appealing mirror into your bathroom design. However, asymmetrically shaped mirrors are not where the trend stops. We mentioned smart mirrors in the technology section above, mirrors are now more than just delivering you your reflection, they incorporate touch screens, built-in speakers and USB charging, they can let you see what you would look like with a different hair colour or outfit, and one of the most popular options are mirrors with built-in lighting to ensure you always have the right amount of light to get ready, putting function back at the top of the list of features available with today’s bathroom mirrors.

When is the Right Time for a Bathroom Remodel?

When is the Right Time for a Bathroom Remodel?

When considering the right time to complete any major renovation project in your home, there are multiple factors that you need to pay attention to. Contractor availability, project timeline and price are three of the most important factors that can affect your project. A full bathroom remodel would unquestionably fall into the category of a major renovation project, and so we will explore each of the above factors in relation to bathroom renovations below.

1. Contractor Availability

Most homeowners tend to lean towards the spring and summer months to complete their home renovations. This seems to be the best time for them as the weather is nice, so if windows and doors are left open or removed you are not disrupted by the cold weather. The downside of waiting for the weather to warm up, is that contractor demand is high. So, you may not be able to hire the contractor you wanted, or you may end up waiting weeks or even months before the project can begin. Materials also become a bit of a concern at this time, as many contractors are putting in their orders, there may be a delay in delivery and there is also a higher chance of a mix up with another order. Reaching out to your desired bathroom renovation specialist in fall, winter or early spring, will increase your chances of being able to get the job done in a timely fashion.

2. Project Timeline

Planning for your bathroom renovation ahead of time, will help shorten the process when it comes time for the work to actually begin. If you have a date selected or a special event that you need to have your renovation completed by, you could find yourself in a bind if you did not plan ahead. Let’s say you want to complete your new spa inspired master bathroom by your 10th wedding anniversary in July. Selecting a company in early winter to come look at the space and design your new bathroom gives you enough time to ensure your deadline is met. The crew and material will be booked well in advance. As mentioned above, most contractors are not as busy during the winter months, so chances are they will have more time to discuss your vision and plan for the renovation. On the flip side, if you begin your search in May for a July deadline, you need to be willing to accept what options are available at the time, or you risk missing your deadline.

3. Price

Most contractors have their own pricing model that they follow when providing estimates to potential clients. If the contractor has a hefty workload with plenty of jobs coming up, they may be less inclined to negotiate the price. But, if you find the contractor during a slow period or when they are looking to fill in their schedule, they may be more willing to negotiate the price to get the job. Material costs may also fluctuate due to demand. The same way that Christmas decorations are drop in price on December 26th, some materials may be less expensive during slower times. However, the same way that the availability of decorations will be lower on December 26th, waiting for a slower season may mean having a smaller selection material.

At KBC Solutions we understand that the right time to complete a bathroom remodel is subjective to each individual’s needs and wants. We will work with you to help plan out and design your new bathroom, and try our best to meet your timeline. Call us today at 647-258-4170 to book your consultation.

5 Benefits to Renovating your Closet

5 Amazing Benefits to Renovating your Closet

One of the most cluttered parts of any house is the closet. The average person may have some parts of their closet in order, but the rest of it is almost always in disarray. So choosing to renovate your closet is a very important decision to keep your space organized.

Here are five amazing benefits you get for renovating your closet.

1. More Space

There is no such thing as too much space, except in your closet. Old ‘never-worn’ birthday presents and other clothing items usually take up the bottom space and leave your shoes, or other closet-worthy items lying around the house. Renovating your closet means clearing it all out, and when things go where they are supposed to, there’ll definitely be more space.

2. Better Oganization

With a newly renovated custom closet, there is that fresh feeling that stops you every time you want to chuck your sweatshirt on the floor. A new closet makes you want to put things in order and be better organized –for the first few weeks at least. Also, your renovation may include new accessories that could involve drawers and mini-shelves to help you keep items separated and avoid a volcano eruption when looking for specific items.

3. Give out to Charity

In the process of renovating your closet, you may come across old and never-before-used clothing items that you have no interest in wearing or using, or that you simply feel like giving away. You can box these items and send them to charity. If you are in doubt, remember that giving something away is better than letting it lose its value in your closet. With this, you accomplish two things: freeing up space and getting a great sense of fulfillment.

4. Avoid Pest Infestation

When clothes are piled upon each other for weeks or months, there is a high possibility of pest infestation without your knowledge. A termite-infestation in the wall beneath the pile of clothes could spread further and cause serious damage. With a renovated closet, you get to avoid what could have been an expensive repair for pest-infested walls.

5. Reduce Damage to Clothes

Piling clothes may cause moisture or material damage to some of your more delicate clothes. Renovation means that everything goes where it is supposed to and you can take better caution. Also, some clothing like leather-based clothing that needs special attention, may be damaged in a clustered closet with a loose nail. Renovating your closet gives you the opportunity to reduce damage.

Closet renovation allows you to have a better-organized space that also protects the valuable items that are in your closet.

Things to Consider when Renovating your Bathroom

Things to Consider when Renovating your Bathroom

If we are being honest, bathrooms are the last part of the house we think about when it comes to renovation, except if there are major damages. Nevertheless, bathroom renovations can be exciting and extremely fulfilling when executed properly.

As with all home renovations, in order to achieve the right results, there are certain things that you should consider carefully when you decide to renovate your bathroom.

Here are five things that will help you make the right decisions for your bathroom renovation.

1. Budget

The first step for any project is the budget and there is no difference when it comes to renovating your bathroom. Decide on a budget that will allow you to get the best quality for installation and manual labour without breaking the bank. Your budget will then help you streamline spending to only the essential needs with a little wiggle room for unexpected expenses.

2. Size of New Fixtures

Your bathroom may seem bigger than it really is so when you are shopping for bathtubs, showers and sinks, you may want to take new measurements to make sure the size of the new fixtures will fit. Be sure of the size of what you are installing and the space available for it before concluding on any purchase to avoid a waste of money and time.

3. Old vs. New Theme

Your bathroom theme is very important because the bathroom is the place where most thought processes and relaxation take place. You may really like the old theme you have going and see something in an interior décor store that catches your eye but would disturb your current theme. This is typically when you start debating old vs. new. The solution is simple, you can either do a completely new theme, after all, it’s a renovation, or you can find the perfect blend between the new fixtures and the old theme that would create an excellent blend in your bathroom.

4. Bathroom Usage

The frequency of your bathroom use and the number of users is another thing to consider while making choices for your bathroom renovation. If it’s for only one or two people, you can splurge on a fancy bath and shower combo since there is no need for a lot of room. However, if more than two people use the bathroom, you may want to use a shower as space won’t be very personal.

5. Maintenance

The dedication to maintaining your bathroom in terms of cleaning and use can be a deciding factor when it comes to renovation. If you, or other occupants, have terrible maintenance habits, it is best to go for regular fixtures that don’t require extra maintenance.

Your bathroom renovation can be literal perfection if you take the necessary things into consideration to avoid wasting your resources.
