Although backsplash used to be a 4 inch guard at the back of your counter to keep water from damaging your walls, it has become as much a part of kitchen design as cabinet choice. Tile backsplashes can make or break the design of your kitchen. Something so small has the ability to elevate your kitchen or throw it off completely. It’s no wonder this becomes such a stress point for so many homeowners. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Color is key to any remodeling project. Whether you prefer a neutral palette or something a little louder, it’s vital to put some focussed time into choosing. While wall paint or even a backsplash can be changed without too much fuss, something like countertops is difficult and costly to change.
While the bathroom is one of the places in the house that is mostly used for privacy, that does not mean that you should not update it every so often, especially if you are considering bathroom remodeling. One of the simplest and most cost-effective ways to give your bathroom an aesthetic boost is by purchasing mirrors.
If you think only mansion-sized kitchens can look beautiful, then you’re very wrong. Even the smallest of spaces can look stylish and be highly functional. All you need is a good design and a few handy ideas from the pros and your small kitchen will look chic and stylish. Here’s your plan of attack.

One of the biggest trends in kitchen design right now is the rise of the island. Providing extra prep or social space, islands are also a great place to add some extra design flair and functionality.
Often, an island is the first thing you see when you walk in the kitchen, so it’s a great statement piece that deserves a little extra thought and consideration when you’re remodeling your kitchen. It’s also a high use area that will get a lot of attention whether you’re cooking or just hanging out. So let’s go over some of what goes into the ideal island, and how you can get the most out of yours.
In a perfect world where nothing goes wrong, all the materials show up on time, and there are no delays with city permits or your condo board, a kitchen remodel can be done in about 3 weeks. But this is the real world, and the average timeline ends up being a few months. Sometimes tiles are broken in transit or your building’s elevator is reserved for people moving for the next few weeks. The granite countertop of your dreams might not be in stock for months, and the cabinet makers might be especially busy this time of year.
They say that when it comes to the triangle of price, speed, and quality, you can only choose two. At 123 Remodeling, we prioritize quality over everything else, so this week we’re having a conversation about how to manage your timeline expectations. Here are a few things you should plan to encounter that’ll slow your work down, and some suggestions to counteract them.
