BEST PAINT COLORS FOR SMALL ROOMS

Tips on Color Choices for a Small Kitchen, Study, or Bathroom

Color Choices for kitchens and bathroomsColor is among the most subjective choices you can make in home design and décor. It’s all about creating a room that speaks to your personal taste, and when in doubt, asking the experts. Here, we have provided just a few ideas of how paint color (light and dark) can make a small room look bigger, cozy and inviting, or just fabulous at any size.

California Bathroom & Kitchen Remodelers can help you choose the best paint color for small rooms. Our pros can also suggest other changes to transform any space into your new favorite place in the house!

Keep Your Small Kitchen Vibrant with the Right Color Palette

Remodeling your small kitchen can make it more functional and choosing the right paint color can tie the room’s overall design and the look together. Remember, you can make almost any color work with the right kitchen remodeling plan for your home in San Jose, Willow Glen, Almaden, Los Gatos, or Cambrian, CA. Need inspiration for your remodel? Check our online bathroom and kitchen showroom.

Learn about the relationship between the color on your walls and the impact on your kitchen by reviewing our tips:

  • Pastel yellow. Soft pale yellow paired with cream or similar tones lends warmth without overpowering the room as sunnier shades may. If you have wood counters or tile floors, this could be the right color for your small kitchen. It can also make your small nursery relaxing and vibrant to charm your little one.
  • Mint green. Minty greens complement so many themes. If you want a country chic, modern or eclectic vibe, this chameleon color delivers on all counts. Use neutral décor to offset the soft but pervasive minty hue. It’s also the perfect counterpoint to crisp white or black counters and cabinets.
  • Crisp white. White makes rooms look larger, and that’s important if your kitchen is small. Before you yawn, keep reading! The love it or hate it camps might just meet in the middle when they stop to think about the benefits of crisp white kitchen walls. Without a doubt, this is one of the best paint colors for small rooms that you want to give a larger, more spacious look. If stark white seems too clinical, add a touch of pink, blue, gray, or green for an updated spin on a classic color choice.
  • Pearl gray. For elegance and warmth, luminous pearl gray is the obvious choice for your kitchen walls. The color subtly transforms as the light changes. You can have soft shades during the day and more sophisticated hues after dark. This color can also transform your small living room into a pretty, warm retreat.
  • Light beige. This neutral tone lends an earthy vibe that warms up your kitchen without making it feel cramped. The light tone, mixed with a hint of your favorite color, reflects light, visually enlarging the room.

Colors You Think Won’t Work in a Small Bathroom, Sometimes Do!

Are you having trouble deciding on a color palette for your bathroom renovation? Try these knock-out color applications that you may assume will shrink your space. They don’t, when done correctly!

  • Glossy black. High gloss paint reflects light, especially when paired with large mirrors. Add glamor and mystery to the smallest bathroom with this unexpected paint choice.
  • Navy blue. Navy blue gives your bathroom an instant nautical vibe, but you can use it as a backdrop to your theme of choice. Painting the top section, a lighter color, can open up the space without losing the personality of the bold navy blue.
  • Blush pink. A hint of pink softens your small bathroom, adding warmth without the frenetic energy of pure pinks or reds. Pair it with light blue tones to balance out a kids’ bathroom.

Contact us today for assistance in choosing the best paint colors for small rooms. We are happy to design a new kitchen or bathroom that incorporates your personality, starting with the color palette. Call 408-360-9700 for a free quote in San Jose, Willow Glen, Almaden, Los Gatos, or Cambrian, CA.

HIGH TECH BATHROOM RENOVATION IDEAS

Upgrade Your Bathroom with the Latest Gadgets

With today’s tech gadgets, all facets of life have moved toward the futuristic picture that was once seen only in sci-fi movies. Your bathroom is no exception. Bathtubs that fill on your voice command, water pebbles that train you to use less water, warming drawers for your towels, air purifiers, temperature sensing LED faucet lights, and other innovations continue to push the envelope and revolutionize bathroom renovations.

What are the key advantages of incorporating these smart technologies when you upgrade your bathroom?

  • Improved health and hygiene
  • Environmentally friendly design
  • Safer bathroom environments

Find out more about the latest gadgets and tech innovations to make your bathroom renovations more than just a style makeover.

Must-Have Tech for Your Bathroom Upgrade

The days of settling for shower heads with one speed and pressure are in the past. High-tech toilets, digital faucets, towel warmers, and other products make your time in the bathroom comfortable and luxurious.

Here are some of the items to consider for your bathroom renovation:

  • LCD shower panels. Do you spend a lot of time adjusting water to the right temperature? LCD panels allow you to control water flow, temperature, and steam. You can even listen to music while you take your shower. Ask our knowledgeable team how you can combine this with your other smart home devices as you plan your bathroom redesign.
  • Digital faucets. Save water with an efficient digital faucet. You can reduce tap flow and gain more control with touchless settings. Some models have infrared technology to detect hand motion for maximum water conservation. If you have kids, digital faucets make brushing teeth and hand washing, simple and fun.
  • High tech toilets. Low-flow toilets have been on the market for decades. However, new models take convenience and water conservation to new heights. For example, Japanese-style toilets include personalization, voice control, and tons of bells and whistles. From bidets to nightlights, high tech toilets are must-have items for your reimagined bathroom.
  • Waterproof TVs. Incorporating Alexa or Siri into your smart phone devices is just the beginning. Now, you can stream television shows or videos into the bathroom with voice commands. Moisture resistant TVs make it easy to watch your favorite shows while you get ready for the day or relax in a bubble bath before bedtime. In fact, some TVs double as mirrors to help you achieve multifunctional nirvana!

Our customer-focused team will make the bathroom remodeling process as easy as possible. Let us know your wish list items and we’ll do our best to incorporate them seamlessly into your bathroom renovation.

Why Include an Island in Your Kitchen Update?

WHY INCLUDE AN ISLAND IN YOUR KITCHEN UPDATE

Planning Your Kitchen Update? Include an Island!

Consider these Top Reasons

kitchen island design and installationKitchen islands offer a cozy place for your family to gather for meals, entertainment, and even school assignments or homework. Most islands have seating on one side, with space dedicated to food preparation and amenities taking up the rest of the area. If you decide to include an island in your kitchen update, you can include seating on two or more sides without sacrificing storage space and surface area, with the right design. 

California Bathroom and Kitchen Remodelers has experienced kitchen designers and installers ready to help you update your kitchen with a family-friendly island at its heart. Here are a few ideas for expanded island seating that fits your lifestyle:

  • Does your island seating face views of your backyard? Think about expanding the window and ask your designer to add seating on the short sides and one long side. You can either extend the island you already have or customize a new one with the correct dimensions. Don’t forget to factor in adequate legroom for everyone!
  • Would you rather face views of your backyard or your kitchen appliances? It’s important to orient your seating to take advantage of the best view. If your kitchen has a window opening onto outdoor views, our designers can create an island with seating facing the window rather than your appliances. However, if your kitchen doesn’t have access to outdoor views, you can design wraparound seating to face the living area. As a bonus, this facilitates entertainment and enhances an open floor plan.

If you have a smaller kitchen, check out our blog on “Ideas for Designing an Island in a Small Kitchen” for your home in San Jose, Willow Glen, Almaden, Los Gatos, and Cambrian.

Don’t Have a Kitchen Island Yet? Here’s Why You Need One

Kitchen islands evolved from large farm tables that served a dual purpose as food prep areas and family dining space. Modern kitchens use the space in much the same way, but you require aesthetic appeal just as much as functionality. Here are the top reasons you should incorporate an island into your kitchen renovation with your next update:

  • A kitchen island provides access on every side, allowing you to maximize your space for storage and seating. Compare that to countertops against walls with access on just one side. In contrast, when executed properly, kitchen islands become a focal point with additional seating for guests and family members.
  • Many kitchen islands also serve as a home office or study space during the day. If you work from home and don’t want to clutter your kitchen table or build a dedicated office, an island with comfortable seating will serve you well. Your kitchen remodeler can also ensure you have electrical outlets to plug in and charge your devices conveniently.
  • Create a more spacious work area. The applications for kitchen islands are endless. Create an island with a range and cook top to build your gourmet kitchen. Alternatively, you can also add freezer or refrigerator drawers if you need more food storage space.

Tell us your pain points and what you would like to get out of your kitchen remodeling project. We can help you plan how to include an island into your other wish list items for a more functional kitchen.

Not sure why to include an island in your kitchen update? Contact us today for ideas on how to maximize your kitchen space with a gorgeous modern island. We proudly serve homeowners in San Jose, Willow Glen, Almaden, Los Gatos, and Cambrian. Call 408-360-9700 to get an accurate quote.

You Want ROI, Style, and Utility — So, Where Should You Splurge?

According to Houzz, these are the top renovation trends worth spending money on. And if you plan to sell your home and want to give the competition a run for their money, you may have to!

  1. New counters can rock your kitchen. About 91% of homeowners take out their old counters and invest in new ones during a kitchen remodel. More than a third of them spend more than originally planned. What are the hottest materials for stunning countertops?
    • Engineered quartz will enhance the countertops of 42% of survey participants, significantly less than the prior year.
    • Granite comes in as a close second, with 24% choosing this timeless material.
    • Quartzite, laminate, and concrete rounded out this year’s top countertop materials for kitchen remodels.
    • What’s the most popular color choice? Believe it or not, 39% of renovators chose white countertops!

Check out our kitchen gallery for additional inspiration.

  1. Marble backsplashes are making a splash. The vast majority of participants (86%) included a new backsplash in their remodeling projects.
    • More than half of them plan to splurge on upgraded materials like marble.
    • Others will stick to conventional porcelain and ceramic tiles.
    • Approximately 66% will cover the area from the countertop to the cabinets, while 19% will cover a smaller portion of the wall.

Ideas for Updating Your Bathroom

IDEAS FOR UPDATING YOUR BATHROOM

Thinking About Updating Your Bathroom? You Are Not Alone

Turn Your Bathroom Pet Peeves into a Remodeling Checklist

ideas for updating bathroomsIs there something that constantly irks you about your current bathroom layout or décor? Thinking about updating your bathroom? You are not alone. From sprucing up with new shower curtains to gutting an outdated bathroom and starting from scratch, you might be surprised how many people share your bathroom cringe triggers. At California Bathroom and Kitchen Remodelers, we can help you turn your most embarrassing bathroom features into upgrades you can’t wait to show off.

The 2021 U.S. Houzz Bathroom Trends Study revealed the top pet peeves or pain points for surveyed homeowners. Here’s what they found:

  • Nearly 7 out of 10 homeowners surveyed thought their bathroom looked old and outdated.
  • About 33% felt they needed more storage while 32% complained about small showers.
  • Insufficient lighting (28%), poor ventilation (25%), and limited counter space (23%) round out the top six reasons these homeowners would like to renovate their bathrooms.
  • Dishonorable mentions go to glass shower doors that have seen better days (18%), noisy fans (15%), decrepit shower curtains (14%), bathrooms with just one sink (14%) and no natural light (11%).
  • A few respondents thought they should relocate their toilet (9%), add a bathtub (5%), change their toilet paper mount location (5%), or add more mirrors (4%).

Our bathroom design specialists would love to help you brainstorm ways to help you check a few of these (or all of them!) off your list of pet peeves.

5 Bathroom Renovation Ideas

Thinking about updating your bathroom? You are not alone when you team up with our remodeling experts. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  1. Increase your storage space: Custom designed cabinetry, shelving with baskets and bins, and built-in vanities will maximize your compact spaces.
  2. Add a second sink: This can double your efficiency during the morning rush without requiring a huge renovation budget.
  3. Relocate the bathtub and add a shower stall: Freestanding acrylic tubs are all the rage, but you can maximize space and have the best of both worlds with a shower-tub combo. An alcove tub against a wall might be a great idea for your updated bathroom.
  4. Make it senior-friendly: Whether you have a senior living with you or you want to plan for your own ability to age in place, your bathroom remodeler can follow ADA guidelines to make your bathroom accessible and age-friendly. From a wide entrance to grab bars, shower/tub seating, lowered counters and vanities, walk-in or curb-less showers, and more, there are many ways to make your updated bathroom safe, convenient, and yet, stylish.    
  5. Complete makeover: Through stunning designs and quality workmanship, our veteran remodeling team takes your bathroom from the 1980s (or earlier!) to a modern era home spa. Talk to us about your wish list for a luxurious, functional bathroom remodel.

Small changes make a big difference! Talk to us about your bathroom pet peeves so we can change them into cherished features.

Increase the Value of Your Home with these Bathroom Design Tips

INCREASE THE VALUE OF YOUR HOME WITH THESE BATHROOM DESIGN TIPS

Bathroom Design Tips to Increase the Value of Your Home

Extra Storage, Stylish Décor, Enhanced Features, New Fittings & Floors

bathroom designAre you tired of your drab bathroom but worried that renovations could drain your bank account? The truth is that you don’t have to start from scratch to achieve a fresh, modern look. According to the National Association of Realtors, you can recoup up to 70% of the cost of redesigning your bathroom. So, what do you have to lose besides outdated fittings and dull walls or floors? Get inspired to plan your remodel and increase the value of your home with these bathroom design tips.

We asked our bathroom design specialists how to plan a remodel if you want to start small. So, follow the advice of California Bathroom and Kitchen Remodelers to increase the value of your home with these bathroom design tips.

How to Update Your Bathroom for Form, Function and Style

When you look around your bathroom, what do you see that needs to change immediately? Here are our top picks for affordable bathroom remodeling tips, plus a few changes that need more upfront investment but can give you the most bang for your buck:

  • Increase your storage space. Our skilled team can design custom cabinetry that enhances the aesthetic of your bathroom design. You can also consider using baskets, bins, and shelves to maximize vertical and horizontal space.
  • Update the paint. If it’s been a while since you last put a coat of fresh paint on the bathroom walls, choose a modern color that reflects current styles. From bright and sunny yellows, whites, and beige tones to deeper hues such as sunset reds, ochre, olive green, and other great accent colors, you have plenty of choice.
  • Replace broken, worn, outdated tiles. At the very least, it’s important to replace your broken and damaged tiles with new ones. However, there’s no guarantee that the manufacturer will still have extra tiles that you can order. Subway tiles and large bathroom tiles present flexible options that can quickly update your bathroom. They can also help make a small space appear larger.
  • Add a second sink. Are weekday mornings a bit manic in your family? Do you share a bathroom with a spouse who has more hair and skin care products than your counter can hold? Add a second sink with additional counter space.
  • Consider bigger changes when you have the budget. Do you have oddly placed toilets and tubs to be changed or moved? Need some heavy muscle to revamp a bathroom after severe water damage? Want to add a shower for greater convenience in your busy household? Looking for a touch of luxury with a big, free-standing bathtub? Our bathroom design team offers comprehensive planning, design, and installation services.

If you want to make more extensive changes, our bathroom remodeling team can help you create a plan, stick to your budget, and get the biggest impact. That’s good news for everyone in your household, and the increased value will pay off when you decide to sell your home.

Ideas for a Safe and Slip Proof Bathroom

USEFUL IDEAS FOR A SAFE AND SLIP-PROOF BATHROOM

Address Bathroom Safety Issues in the Design with Simple Solutions

bathroom contractorYou’re redesigning or fall-proofing your bathroom and want to incorporate safety features that will help prevent slips and falls. You love the glossy floors that are non-porous and easy to clean but want to prevent water puddling. You want to avoid slick surfaces underfoot, and treacherous shower or tub surfaces that can send you skittering to a hard stop. You need the best ideas for a safe and slip-proof bathroom.

The experienced team at California Bathroom and Kitchen Remodelers has put together these design and upgrade tips to help you. Make your bathroom a safe place to refresh and relax without slippery surfaces and obstacles that cause accidents and injuries.

Consider Who is Most at Risk of Falling in Your Home

If you have older or disabled family members, you may want to work with a bathroom remodeling team familiar with ADA requirements. ADA recommends handrails, seats in the shower, and other suggestions to keep older adults safer in the bathroom. Children are also prone to trips, slips and falls. Clumsy roommates or family members may have a hard time staying on their feet in the best of circumstances. So, let’s just say that a safe and slip-proof bathroom benefits everyone!

How to Make Bathroom Floors Safer

Gain traction with slip-resistant bathmats, grab bars, and textured flooring:

  • Bathmat for safety: Choose bathmats with slick proof backing inside and outside your bath or shower.
  • Smaller tiles with grout lines: Smaller tiles with grout lines give your feet a better grip to help prevent slips and falls.
  • Textured flooring: Smooth, shiny floors are aesthetically pleasing but risky in your bathroom. Consider options such as textured concrete or look for luxury vinyl plank or tile that has anti-slip protection or wood-grain embossing. It won’t be as smooth as ceramic or porcelain, but an uneven texture is a safer option for bathroom flooring.

Find more ideas for making your bathroom ADA compliant here.

Design Ideas for a Slip-Resistant Bathroom

Some ideas for a safe and slip-proof bathroom may require a remodel. Our bathroom remodelers can help with these and other design elements:

  • Walk-in tubs are ideal so that bathers can safely and comfortably enter and exit.
  • Curb less showers have no raised threshold, and this helps avoid tripping while going in and out of the shower.
  • Built-in shower seats provide a comfortable and safe shower experience. Let us help you find a seating option that fits your space and matches your bathroom design.
  • Slip-resistant flooring such as tiles with a matte finish or textured vinyl tiles can prevent slips and falls due to water puddling.
  • Grab bars for support. It only takes one second for an older adult or younger person to lose focus and slip in the shower. Without grab bars, the fall can be nasty. Install grab bars in the bathtub and shower.

Contact us today to get more ideas for a safe and slip-proof bathroom. We proudly serve residents in San Jose, Willow Glen, Almaden, Los Gatos, and Cambrian. We also welcome your calls at 408-360-9700—schedule a free consultation!

Bathroom Remodeling Ideas for San Jose

INSPIRING BATHROOM REMODELING IDEAS FOR SAN JOSE

Design a Smarter, More Convenient Bathroom for Long-Term Living

When you decide to upgrade your bathroom, the possibilities are endless. Keep in mind that your needs and tastes will change over the years. Try to focus on timeless appeal and functionality for your bathroom makeover. Choose easy-care materials that make cleaning the bathroom less onerous and time-consuming. Our skilled designers have put together these inspiring bathroom remodeling ideas for San Jose residents.

Brighten Up Your Bathroom and Make Life Easier

Maximize the use of space, make your bath and shower senior-friendly, and customize your bathroom with help from California Bathroom and Kitchen Remodelers.

To get you started, here are several bathroom remodeling ideas for San Jose homes.

Declutter, and Integrate Innovative Storage Solutions

Here are a few bathroom design ideas to create an uncluttered appearance with convenient, stylish storage:

  • Combine a compact sink with a sleek, narrow profile vanity for a neat look and adequate storage space
  • Go vertical with custom cabinetry over the toilet or above the sink in lieu of a medicine cabinet
  • Limit wall tiles to an accent wall and go with slightly larger tiles — fewer grout lines create an illusion of more space
  • Shower baths give you the option to take a relaxing bath or quick shower without using separate spaces for both in your bathroom
  • Short projection or low depth toilets take up less room and give your smaller bathroom a sleek appearance

Bring in Natural Light but Keep Your Privacy Intact

Consider frosted or glazed doors that let light into your bathroom. Keep in mind that frosted or glazed doors still allow some visibility. Therefore, they are best suited for ensuite bathrooms where privacy is less of an issue.

You can use frosted or glazed glass on your windows to let in natural light without giving up privacy. You can also consider a sunlight dome, which is a smaller version of a skylight that funnels in light from a small dome on your roof.

Install Period-Appropriate Bathroom Fixtures

If you love retro glamor or want ultra-modern design, consult with our bathroom designers. Count on our team to provide stunning designs and expert craftsmanship for your bathroom remodel. Whether you choose modern contemporary, Craftsman-style or mid-century décor, we’ll deliver a complete look with period-appropriate fixtures, such as the following:

  • Woodwork and metalwork define a Craftsman-style bathroom
  • Clawfoot bathtubs set the tone for a vintage bathroom
  • Brass or brushed nickel exudes an industrial or minimalist vibe
  • Rain showerheads, faucets protruding directly from the wall, and sinks that stand alone in artsy basins above the counter all define trendy, modern bathrooms
  • Classy fixtures in gray or silver tones will reflect the sleek, minimalist lines of a mid-century style bathroom remodel

Easy Access Tubs and Showers for Aging in Place

When considering bathroom remodeling ideas, San Jose homeowners should also think about future needs. If you already have family members with mobility issues, the following changes can make life easier and safer for them.

Here are a few ways to keep older adults safe and secure in the bathroom:

  • Install sturdy grab bars in your shower. You’ll also want to install grab bars in your separate tub or toilet area to prevent slips and falls.
  • Consider installing a walk-in tub or walk-in shower complete with a seat to make bathing easy and enjoyable for those with mobility issues.
  • Add a lower vanity or separate sink at a convenient height for wheelchair access.

See our blog on aging in place for additional ways to address changing needs as you grow older.

From modern, water-saving toilets, showers, and faucets to stylish storage, and easy-care, non-slip flooring, we can help make your dream bathroom an affordable reality. Our experienced team has plenty of useful tips for budget-friendly bathroom makeovers.

UPDATE YOUR DARK, DATED KITCHEN WITH A SMARTER LAYOUT AND A BRIGHTER LOOK

Ideas to Update Your Dark, Dated Kitchen

Remodel for a Smarter Layout and a Brighter Look

grey tile backsplash, quartz counter tops, white cabinet, bright, modern, airy, Mountain viewExperienced designers and craftsmen can help you make the most of the space you have. From repurposing your mudroom for more kitchen space to adding a skylight to bring in natural light, we can help you update your dark, dated kitchen. Remember, it’s important to prepare for your kitchen renovation to help things go smoothly!

Strategic Kitchen Layouts and Design Elements that Capture Light

Here are a few ideas to brighten your outdated kitchen with trendy materials and a more functional layout:

  • Do you have a mudroom or laundry room entrance? Consider re-purposing this space into a kitchen expansion. If required, you can take down non-load-bearing walls to bring more direct sunlight in your kitchen. With the additional space, you can expand countertop working areas, design an in-kitchen eating space, or add an island.

Not sure which layout will work best for you? California Bathroom and Kitchen Remodelers has designed many kitchens in both new and older homes. We can design your new kitchen layout to ensure you have a more spacious and brighter room that considers your functional and aesthetic preferences.

  • Customized light fixtures: From overhead lighting to under-cabinet LED lighting, we can add layers of illumination to make your kitchen appear airy and bright. Our team can help you choose faucets, cabinetry, hardware, and paint colors that reflect light and fit your style. For inspiration, take a look at the eclectic elements our team achieved with this kitchen makeover.
  • Glass or metallic backsplash: Glass reflects light, creating a cool, modern tone. Burnished metal also reflects light but creates rich, warm tones. Consider copper, stainless steel, or brass in brushed or hammered textures for a unique look.
  • Add cabinets and pantries for extra storage and paint them in lighter hues. Whites, yellows, and pastel shades will brighten your kitchen and give it a modern feel. Work with our designers to personalize your custom cabinetry and brighten up any dark nooks in your kitchen.

Expert Kitchen Remodelers in the San Jose Area
