This post shows how a little Web research can greatly help the redesign process of your home interior

Whether you are a do-it-yourselfer or you plan to hire a design expert, doing a little research about your likes, dislikes and creating a wants list will greatly help the process.  You can have fun getting inspired while gathering details for establishing a budget.  Kohler’s Website is a great place to start your redesign process for the bath, kitchen or any room in your home.   This is a helpful resource and the products are widely accessible.   Below are three ways how you can use this to your advantage…    

1. Ideas and inspiration

On the Kohler Website you’ll find great inspirational photos that help get you thinking about ideas and  explore trends.  They have posted videos and great photography, even “Idea Homes” where you can easily get the product details!  The videos portray the home owners and interior designers explaining the design.

Kohler Escale suite: Conceived from the form of a sail in the wind and Japanese ceramic tableware design, the Escale suite takes you on a journey of style to create a clean new look for your bathroom. A timeless classic, Escale combines flexibility with highly distinctive design.

 

Kohler has partnered with Sunset, Midwest Living, Cottage Living, Traditional Home, and Dwell Magazines in producing “Idea Homes”.  The Kohler Website allows you to access the latest and greatest interior design ideas from all these magazines in one spot, including beautiful photography and videos of the home owners.  You’ll find great ideas whether your design style is traditional, contemporary, modern, green, etc. It’s a fabulous concept!  The images below are just a few of the rooms from the idea homes that list products used, and again you can watch a video to see what inspired the interior designers and home owners in decorating each room.

Choosing kitchen and bath fixtures can be overwhelming for people.  Shower fixtures especially are a subjective and personal choice… Check out this shower planning website tool on Kohler that greatly eases the process….

3.  Budgeting    

The other thing I love about the Kohler Website is that they provide pricing for their products!   Ahhh, there is nothing like a beautifully designed, helpful Website that doesn’t make you work for information!
