UPDATE YOUR KITCHEN AND BATHROOMS Without the Expense and Hassle of a Complete Remodel

T

he kitchen serves as a focal point of a home, it is the room where the entire family gathers and entertains. And the cabinetry is the most eyecatching part of the kitchen. Are your cabinets showing wear or are simply outdated, not reflecting the current style and color you wish they would? Signature® Cabinet Refacing is an alternative to replacing your cabinets, providing the look of entirely new cabinets at a mere fraction of the cost of new cabinetry. You can choose from thousands of different combinations of door styles, wood species, stains, glazes, and hardware. Keeping your existing cabinet frames fully intact, a factoryfinished ¼” thick beautiful and durable veneer is bonded atop them, then new doors, drawer fronts, and hardware are installed. Along with refacing your bathroom cabinets, there is a wide array of options available to transform your bathroom using the existing space. A walk in bathtub can make life simpler and safer. You just walk right in, close the door behind you, and fill up the tub. And when you are done, the water will drain quickly, and soon after, you will be able to stand up and walk right out the same way you walked in. With a tub to shower conversion, you won’t have to step over the side of the tub anymore and can still enjoy streams of water flowing from the shower head rather then filling up the tub. Whether you would like to learn more about Signature® Cabinet Refacing, or are interested in updating your bathroom, you can call Reborn Bath Solutions at 949-200-8739 to schedule an in-home consultation. You can also visit their showrooms located at 2981 E. La Palma Ave. in Anaheim and 23626 El Toro Rd. Suite B in Lake Forest (between Jamba Juice & Yogartland).

NEW TRENDS in Kitchen Design

T

he kitchen is the most used room in any home. Its purpose is to be not only functional, but also visually appealing, comfortable and practical, offering convenience and versatility. Not only a place to cook, the kitchen plays a crucial role as the place people eat and gather, compelling guests to linger longer. Has it been a while since you shopped for cabinets, and you don’t know where to start? A professional kitchen and bath specialist can help you create the kitchen of your dreams by incorporating today’s trends and your personal style. New colors and textures add a warmth and richness that complement the attention-grabbing amenities. Neutrals are becoming spicier, and colors that have tactile appeal are becoming more evident. Lighter cabinets, or Shaker style, with the right planning can give you an open look in a small kitchen, whereas warm colors in the wood give the area an inviting and comfortable feeling. Styles and accessories that previously existed only in the exclusive world of custom cabinets are now available in manufacturers’ more affordable semi-custom lines.

PROTECT YOUR STONE, TILE & CONCRETE INVESTMENT by Sealing, Cleaning & Restoring

N

atural stone and concrete are excellent choices for durability. Although they can withstand the test of time, they are subject to wear and tear, dirt build- up, moisture and are not impervious to spills and heavy foot traffic. For newly constructed and remodeled home, sealing natural stone surfaces maintains optimum stain resistance and protects against everyday dirt and spills. After a period of time you will begin to see discoloration, chipping, etching and ultimately the stone and concrete will look dull, bringing down the overall ambience of indoor and exterior living spaces. Maintenance is essential to protect your investment and maintain the value and safety of your home. The cleaning and sealing performed during regular maintenance will enhance the beauty of the natural colors and textures, preserving your home’s appearance for years to come. Dirt, mold, calcium deposits, salt damage and even algae can make their home in any permeable surface. These contaminants mar the beauty of your surfaces and can cause potential health concerns. In addition, if left unchecked, failing sealant may cause cracks creating trip hazards. The maintenance of each type of natural stone, along with the type of finish and location in your home, necessitates the need for a

knowledgeable, experienced professional who understands the different requirements for cleaning and sealing. Faux rocks, concrete and pavers used in outdoor landscape design around pools, waterfalls and ponds tend to get calcium build-up, creating a dull and dirty appearance. With a professional power wash, colors can be revived and then re-sealed to prolong the fresh look. By applying varying degrees of color dye, indoor as well as outdoor stone and concrete, outdoor hardscape and faux rocks can be restored to the original color. You can also choose from a myriad of colors and add designs from a variety of stencils or saw cut styles to suit your own design preferences, giving an entirely new character to your home.

YOUR WOOD

CABINETS AND FLOORS

O

ver time wood cabinets and floors look flat and lifeless due to dirt build up, wear and tear, scratches and age-discolored finishes. Cabinet and floor renewal is an innovative and affordable alternative to replacing, refacing (new doors), painting or traditional sanding/refinishing. In only a few days, your wood cabinets and floors will be restored to that like–new luster without the inconvenience, dust and odors from harsh chemicals. At a fraction of the cost, it will save you time and money. If you are looking to change the color of your cabinets, one option is to make a slight color change giving your cabinets a warmer tone of the wood without covering the wood grains. Pigments and dyes can be added to the new finish so that you can achieve virtually any color desired. Say you have maple cabinets and would like a slightly darker stained wood, the new finish can be custom dyed to your color preference and then professionally applied. You can choose to do a complete color change, which will dramatically change the style and look of your cabinets. Select from custom durable color finishes that do not chip or peel, and when applied there are no drips, streaks or bleed thru. If repairs are needed like gaps, holes, splintered wood, etc, they are made during the wood surface cleaning process. N-Hance Wood Renewal uses their proprietary, state-of-the-art non-toxic and odorless products. These products along with their advanced technology and processes were developed to provide consistent high quality results. For more information you can call, N-Hance Wood Renewal at (714) 907-1917.

Evict Termites Without Leaving Your Home

T

ermites are among the most destructive pests in the United States, causing property damage to 600,000 homeowners each year. Although you cannot control when termites infest your home, you do have options on how to eradicate them. Twenty years ago homeowners didn’t have many treatment alternatives and tent fumigation was the standard extermination method for termites. This outdated method entails moving out of your home for two days unsecured while a dangerous amount of toxic gas is pumped into your home. Homeowners who choose tent fumigation are forced to pay two days of hidden expenses such as hotel lodging, dining, and pet boarding, as well as pack or discard all the perishable items, food, plants and medicine. Not only is tent fumigation incredibly inconvenient, it also leaves a huge footprint on the environment. The chemicals used for fumigation have been identified by the California Air Resources Board as Toxic Air Contaminants that may cause serious health effects. Recent concerns have been raised about the long term health risks (cancer, defects) in children, and adult development. Fortunately, there is an affordable and effective alternative for eco-friendly homeowners that won’t displace you from your home. XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus® is a revolutionary, scientifically proven product used by IPM companies to destroy termites, wood boring beetles, carpenter ants and their eggs/larvae on contact. This innovative formula is 95% pure orange oil, biodegradable, pet friendly, Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS), and is the least toxic treatment with the same guaranteed results as fumigation but without the hidden expenses and poisonous chemicals that force you to leave your home. A professional certified technician will use a high-tech optical scope to determine the extent of the infestation and inject orange oil directly into the infested wood. XT-2000 Orange Oil has a natural capillarity effect that travels in all directions killing the termites via contact and soaking into surrounding areas providing superior termite protection. No tenting = no move out, no hassle. XT-2000 has been in business since 2004 and have treated half a million structures including homes, apartments, clinics, vessels, schools, commercial buildings and sensitive use areas. For more information on XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus® or to find a certified Pest Control operator, call 866-870-8485 or visit their website at www.xt2000.com
