Home designers and Realtors will tell you that there are three perhaps four things that make a home really POP:
Today, March 15th is The Ides of March; it was 2,061 years ago today that Emperor Julius Caesar was stabbed to death by his close associates and his son-in-law. Typically this has been a day of conspiracy, gloom, and doom; but that was then and this is now.
According to the National Weather Service here in Burlington we received 29½” of snow in a late winter blizzard. All of us know it was a lot of snow and the wind was truly ferocious, the snow was light and puffy so it was easily blown around and drifted everywhere.
Many people will make it very clear that “The Heart” of every home is the kitchen. And, that argument is very valid in the majority of homes.

Tomorrow we will take a look at the changing use of color in the kitchen which many will say is the heart of every home. Today let’s look the new designs for a modern bathroom.
