Kitchen Sinks: Copper vs Stainless Steel Sinks

Your kitchen sink can set the tone for your remodel, and two of the most popular sink materials on the market - copper and stainless steel - can help you create a space uniquely yours. Copper is a naturally anti-microbial and ages beautifully over time while requiring relatively little maintenance. A stainless steel sink is a classic for a reason; built to last and look great for years while blending in seamlessly with nearly any style.

Visible vs Concealed vs Skirted Trap Toilet

The majority of American homes feature toilets with visible traps, meaning the base of their bowl was molded with the outline of the trapway visible. A toilet with a concealed trapway has a smooth surface where the trapway would normally appear, and skirted toilets are designed with smooth sides from front to back. Most people probably don't give the design of their toilet base much thought, but because toilets are an integral part of your overall bathroom design, you might want to take a moment to consider its appearance among other points.

Delta vs. Kohler Thermostatic Shower

Showers available on the market fall into one of two definitions; pressure balanced or thermostatic. The primary difference is in how the shower valve controls unexpected dips in temperature if someone else in your house (rudely) starts a load of laundry, flushes the toilet or runs the dishwasher while you're in the shower. Both work great to avoid unnecessary flashes of scalding hot or icy cold water, but a thermostatic valve gives you independent control over both temperature and water volume. Here's how Delta and Kohler stack up against each other.
