(NC)—Does your home feel tired, worn or outdated? Do you walk into rooms and wish they looked more like the pictures in magazines? You’re not alone. Many homeowners have put off home improvement projects. But now, they have decided to invest in enjoying their home and turn their days of home improvement dreaming into reality – especially in the kitchen and bathroom.

A Beautiful Bath

Start by choosing a stylish new faucet, such as the Moen Boutique faucet, to accentuate the area. The transitionally designed faucet provides water-saving benefits and an attractive design to meet the needs of any décor. The suite is available in some of today’s most popular finishes, Chrome and Spot Resist™ Brushed Nickel. Spot Resist Brushed Nickel is a unique finish which does exactly what it says – resists fingerprints and water spots.

Finally, update your shower to create a relaxing and spa-like environment. Depending on your budget, you can create the ultimate retreat with a vertical spa… or simply upgrade your current showerhead. Moen offers a variety of showering choices, so whether you prefer a rainshower, handheld shower, wall-mount showerhead – or even a combination – there’s an option in any price range.

Form and Function in the Kitchen

Once you’ve updated your bath; the kitchen, not far behind in appeal, is a rewarding home upgrade. Similar to the bath, upgrading countertops – which consume a large area of the kitchen – is an ideal place to start. While laminate is the most cost-effective choice, solid-surface options, such as marble or granite, offer an upscale look, added durability and functionality.

When a new surface is selected, finish off the counter area with a high-tech kitchen faucet. Take a look, for example, at the Moen Arbor pulldown kitchen faucet with new MotionSense technology. It utilizes advanced sensors to detect a user’s movement in two sensing zones, and with a simple wave of the hand, immediately responds to your needs by setting water flow in motion. Simply place an object – like a cup or your hand – near the base of the faucet or wave your hand above the faucet to turn the water on and off automatically. You can also adjust the faucet’s temperature and flow the traditional way, using its convenient side handle. With MotionSense, tasks like washing dishes, filling a glass of water and preparing the evening meal can become quicker and more efficient. It’s like having a second set of hands in the kitchen – perfect for when your hands are too full or too dirty to turn on the faucet.

Finally, flooring, as one of the largest surface areas in the kitchen, is an ideal upgrade that can set the tone of the room from the bottom up. And, today’s flooring manufacturers offer resilient flooring in a variety of materials, colours and patterns to meet your functionality, style and price needs.

So, no matter what your vision, follow the trend, and soon you can turn your dreams of a new kitchen or bath into a reality. More information is available online at www.moen.ca.
