Our Favorite Bathroom Upgrades: Part 2


Looking for ideas on how to refresh or remodel your bathroom? Find the inspiration you need to get started by reading about our favorite bathroom upgrades.  If you're planning a bathroom remodel, you may want to consider adding a few of these fabulous features. From radiant-heat flooring to a frameless glass shower, these upgrades will require a small investment but you'll reap restful and stylish rewards.

1. Refresh a Vanity
A new espresso colored vanity and some shiny silver drawer pulls turn what used to be a basic vanity into a standout. The monogram wall decor and bright flowers turn this into a homey sanctuary for any homeowner. 

 
2. Upgrade the Countertops
This elegant vanity top with gorgeous mosaic tile accent provides the entire bathroom with a bright and clean look.  Easy and inexpensive, this is such a great way to upgrade your bathroom.

3. Set the Tone with Paint
If you’re unsure about committing to new bath colors, first form a neutral backdrop with paint and tile. Then rely on colorful accessories and painted furniture to create a look that’s easy to update!  White walls and neutral decor balance the more colorful vanity to create a colorful but still classic look.

We hope that this has provided you with some food for thought on your upcoming bathroom remodel.  If you have any questions or are interested in working with Projects General Construction, please call us at 805.682.2226.

Our Favorite Bathroom Upgrades: Part 1


Looking for ideas on how to refresh or remodel your bathroom? Find the inspiration you need to get started by reading about our favorite bathroom upgrades.  If you're planning a bathroom remodel, you may want to consider adding a few of these fabulous features. From radiant-heat flooring to a frameless glass shower, these upgrades will require a small investment but you'll reap restful and stylish rewards.

We will be sharing our top bathroom upgrade ideas in a 2 part series, so be sure to stay tuned for Part 2! Here are the first 3 upgrades we are loving right now:

1.Beautiful Tile Accents
Taking tile beyond the floor is an affordable bathroom upgrade. Add glamour and a bit of sparkle by installing a backsplash of glass mosaic tile above your vanity, or take your bathroom over the top and tile an entire wall or walls. Use colored tiles to create an accent wall without getting out a paintbrush.



2. Radiant-Heat Flooring

Treat yourself to warmth underfoot with a radiant-heat system installed below your bathroom floor. Such a system is especially welcome beneath typically cold materials such as ceramic tile and stone. Add a layer of style and comfort with a gorgeous, soft area rug to greet your feet when you step out of the tub or shower.



3. Frameless Glass Showers
A glass shower door lends a luxurious look to any bathroom, but the reason for installing one might not be all about looks. This shower lacks a ledge or lip to step over to enter the shower, making it a great choice for aging family members.

We hope that this has provided you with some food for thought on your upcoming bathroom remodel.  If you have any questions or are interested in working with Projects General Construction, please call us at 805.682.2226.

Beryl Kreisel's Kitchen Remodel

Projects General Construction Speaks at Girls Inc Career Day

Christi and Cherilyn were recently asked to speak to several groups of girls at Girls Inc during Career Day, and of course they were thrilled to take some time to speak and help empower our future leaders.

Career Week at the Santa Barbara and Goleta Girls Inc. centers is an opportunity for the girls to learn more about different careers, and perhaps develop a vision of their own futures through presentations from other community representatives.


Being female trailblazers in the construction field, Christi and Cherilyn were excited to lead by example and show girls that they can do anything they want if they put their minds to it.  During the presentations, they spoke to the girls about how they got into Construction, and how, as women, we can do anything the guys can do...there is no limit! 

The favorite part of the presentation was when they shared photos of past projects, both before and afters, and the girls decided which they liked better… the before or the after. They all loved the afters!  YAY!  


Thank you to Girls Inc. for putting on this incredible and inspiring event and for the honor of letting Projects General Construction attend.
