3 Tips to Designing Your Own Tranquil Oasis

St. Louis Bathroom RemodelingMake every day a spa day by renovating your bathroom into your own private oasis. Tranquility plays a huge role in the calming atmosphere of a spa. JM Kitchen and Bath wants to share the three main factors that go into creating a tranquil space.

Color- Typically cooler colors like light blues, shades of gray, soft greens, and white have a calming effect. When picking out a paint color for your new bathroom, really think about how this color makes you feel. If the answer is relaxed, then you have a winner.

Flooring- There are multiple flooring options for you to choose from including ceramic tile, vinyl, laminate, or natural stone. Whichever style you choose we recommend you select a neutral tone to continue the tranquility throughout the entire bathroom.

Lighting- The lighting is the key to setting the atmosphere in your bathroom. Really bright lights can be harsh and dim lights can be dark. Some people will choose to put both in and have two different switches. Others tend to choose a light fixture that provides adequate light without being harsh.

4 Reasons to Choose a Frameless Shower Door for Your Bathroom

St. Louis Bathroom RemodelingA bathroom renovation is a huge project to tackle and we want to break down the process for you. When renovating your bathroom, there are many small decisions to make along the way before you can enjoy your updated bathroom. One of those decisions is selecting the right shower door to compliment your new space. Here are some benefits of choosing a frameless shower door for your bathroom renovation.

Luxurious– Achieve an elegant and modern look by installing frameless glass shower doors in your new bathroom. With clean lines, your bathroom will instantly feel larger and luxurious.

Customizable– No two showers are the same, which makes installing shower doors difficult. Since frameless glass doors are customizable, you can have one made to fit your specific shower.

Easier to clean– Cleaning mold and mildew off shower doors is not the way you want to spend your weekends. Unlike other shower doors, there are no grooves in a frameless shower door for mildew to grow, which cuts down on the cleaning time.

Protecting your investment – Another way you can invest in your home is to purchase ShowerGuard glass for your shower. This glass is one-of-a-kind because it permanently protects against staining and corrosion. You never have to worry about replacing the glass because it is backed by a lifetime warranty.

For St. Louis bathroom remodeling, you can depend on JM Construction to revive your bathroom. We will help you make decisions throughout the renovation process to ensure you adore your new space. Give us a call today at (636) 332-6800 to schedule a design consultation with our team of professionals.

Don’t Pout over the Grout

Once the tile has been selected it doesn’t have to be stressful choosing the grout. Easy guidelines to go by:

  • Choose gray tones in high traffic, busy areas that work well to hide the grime
  • Choose neutral tones to harmonize
  • Choose dark tones to create drama, attract attention

LOU the WHO?

Sometimes it’s better to trust a local contractor/dealer and not worry so much about saving a few dollars on an item or two. More times than not the local dealer will employ their own staff and be able to stay with the project from start to finish, unlike the Home Improvement companies that only use sub-contractors and no control over how or when the project goes.

My Sink Is Not My Momma’s

My mom always had a very shallow stainless sink. She is overwhelmed by all the choices. I prefer a composite sink, that not only allows one to have a choice of beautiful colors to coordinate the personality of the kitchen but also has amazing depth and attractive pricing.
