When it comes time to renovate your old bathroom into something you would see in a 5 star luxury hotel, you need to pay special attention to the focal point of the bathroom: your sink vanity. One of the more popular looks these days is the modern double sink vanity that features a sleek and simple design along with a mirror in a matching style.

I really like the design and look of some modern kitchen trash cans, especially stainless steel models. But some of the units sold on the market today resemble garbage bins that are used in subway or train stations – too industrial looking for me personally, and I would not want that type in my house. But, different strokes for different folks.

If you’re lucky enough to have an island in your kitchen, you know that it isn’t just a surface for food preparation. It’s also a place to sit and eat breakfast or lunch – a point where people naturally congregate. Of course, you need counter-height stools in order to sit a the island comfortably, and if you like the idea of lending a contemporary touch to the kitchen, modern stools are the way to go.

If you’re like me who resides in a small apartment and have hardly any floor space, wall mounted media cabinets are terrific. Even if you don’t place anything in the space under them, they seem to save space because the look is so clean and modern. There are many styles and designs to choose from: Hardwood or cool funky metal units.

Setting up your backyard to be a peaceful retreat not that difficult. A small clear area, a couple of chairs and a shady tree can be all you need to sit back and relax. However, if you want to go the extra distance, a fountain can make a great addition to your backyard. Outdoor fountains come in a wide variety of styles, materials and shapes to fit your backyard aesthetic.
