I was so excited when I was selected by Makobi Scribe to write a post and receive a free bathroom product from Danze.  All opinions and love of home improvement are my own.

Beautiful, updated shower from

Since buying our 90’s ranch style home in rural middle Tennessee, I have dreamed of updating the bathrooms! Sure, we’d love to gut them and bring in all new products from floor to ceiling and we will get to that one day- but for now, the quickest and most affordable way to update our baths is with new bathroom faucets and fixtures. 

Our master bathroom is in need of a new shower head and I found one I love at Danze.comSince all our fixtures and faucets are in brushed Nickel, I was immediately drawn to the Sunflower 6 inch round single function shower head in brushed Nickel. It's available in Chrome and oil brushed Bronze as well. Maybe it was the name that drew me to this shower head since I’m an avid gardener, or maybe it was simply my love of clean lines and functionality.

The Sunflower sounds like a perfect match for us because it offers easy to clean jets to prevent mineral build-up (a huge plus in our hard water area), and a Brass ball joint for easy and smooth angle adjustment of shower head, which comes in very handy when you are shorter than your tall husband! It’s an affordable option that will last a long time because of its metal construction too. 

I’m excited to give this shower head a try and have my eye on their Cape Anne  bathroom faucet set too.

Please share in comments: What is your favorite bathroom faucet and fixture finish? Chrome, Brushed Nickel or oil rubbed Bronze?

It started out as an innocent enough conversation over toothpaste. My husband and I were getting ready for bed, and he said (for what felt like the 100th time), “I want to remodel this bathroom.” 

I nod my agreement to him in the mirror, knowing that I won’t be picking out paint swatches anytime soon. I know that a good remodeling project takes planning and that yes-the devil is in the details, so while I do not have an exact date on our bathroom remodel, I do have a green light to gather ideas. So I do what any sane women would do. I log on to Pinterest.

While I found several wonderful pins (Pinterest never fails) I wanted more. That’s when a great idea popped into my head-I have set up pro accounts on several remodeling and home improvement sites for my husband’s cabinet business. Why not give them a try for remodeling inspiration? I narrowed my list down to three I think any person who’s interested in home improvement projects, both interior and exterior, will find helpful.


Beautiful White Bathroom

Houzz is a place to browse and save beautiful home photos, and find the right professionals if you need help with a project. 

This is a very well designed site. It's easy to navigate, with clear labels, and the pictures are worth the visit. Setting up your ideabooks for a project is quick and easy; as is finding a home improvement pro in your area. Houzz offers a wide selection of project ideas with photos you can heart to save to your account. They also offer a shopping portal in case you find an item you just can’t live without.

At Porch, they believe that home improvement should be simple. So, they set out to empower people to find professionals and discover what’s possible. They have made it easy to do just that. This site has a streamlined feel to it, with clear labels and easy to navigate projects. I liked browsing projects and starting my own scrapbook.

Hometalk Home and Garden Hub
Hometalk is the largest home and garden social network on the web. Millions of homeowners and professionals use Hometalk to share their knowledge, and find credible information.
This is one of my favorite sites so far. I love the pictures and ideas. I really love the community of helpful members. If you have a question on anything home and garden, just look through the topics and ask your question. You'll be surprised how quickly you get replies.
While all three of these sites were started to help homeowners find professionals for home improvement projects, I think you'll love them for their inspiration as much as I do.
