Sexy bathroom ideas for Tenafly renovations

As with almost every home that is for sale in Tenafly and elsewhere in Easter Bergen County, buyers have to approach the purchase with the understanding that they’re going to have to spend additional money to renovate the home.  You can’t possibly purchase a 30-100 without it needing a major makeover.

Here’s a sexy bathroom design that I came across recently that would be a great look for any home needing a bathroom renovation.

Sleek yet elegant, modern yet timeless.

Bathrooms are where to spend your money…and you don’t have to spend a fortune to get this look…but even if you did it’s worth the investment

The color combinations and elements make this an invigorating place to start your day and to leave you with a relaxing feeling at the end of the night.

I can almost sense the spa-like fragrance when looking at these photos

  • the  color combination of the dark wood vanity and mirror surround and green glass long subway tiles is a great match.  And even though I’m no longer a fan of beige tiles I’m sure it looks great on the floor
  • The full height glass showers with the chrome hinges and super long door handle adds a modern and strong feel
  • I love the 5′ + high frosted glass to add a bit of privacy
  • the extra thick counter tops with integrated deep sinks and modern faucets is a great look to top off the sleek vanity that sits off of the floor about 18″…which adds to the visual depth of the room
  • The pin lighting in the ceiling is a great look compared to the standard, and over abused typical high hat lighting

This design and materials can be integrated into any sized  bathroom renovation for a great look.

Realtors, this will get people talking about your listings

Realtors, you really need to check this video out.

Check out the video…Best real estate video ever

For those of you who may not have already viewed this…it’s great at grabbing someones attention. And let’s face it, that’s what marketing is all about.

But marketing homes is something forbidden in real estate…because Realtors believe that marketing doesn’t work.

But the rest of the world knows that marketing makes things happen…and creates sales.

How many more web site listings, or so called “videos” can someone look at before they want to puke!

It’s time to stop being so boring and so forgettable.

Though this video may be considered sexist, and not for everyone’s taste…it’ll get people talking. Unlike outdated and boring web listings. How many Realtor listings go viral,  and get people excited enough to want to see it over and over again…and create a conversation?  None!

How many more homes would sell in Tenafly if you came up with something like this. And maybe this is the spark that finally lights up Alpine!

Tell us what you think!

Modern waterfront home on Long Island

Every once in a while I come across a cool looking home that I’d like to build one day, and this is one of those times.

Straight from the pages of comes this Modern waterfront home on Long Island.

I’d love to find a property in Tenafly and give something like this a try.

What do you think the reaction would be, and do you think it would be an easy sell?

Here’s a few pictures.


Cool sexy Hamptons-ish look for Tenafly?

To start the summer off here’s a nice lite look at a stunningly simplistic master bath suite  and a Hamptons-ish deck.

Cool stuff.

So how come we never see details like this in Tenafly, Cresskill  or Alpine?  Hmmm

It doesn’t take much to have a breathtaking look
tell me this isn’t a sexy look

Summer has arrived…so here are 30 sexy deck ideas from

I love the looks of a nice deck off the rear of a home or by the pool.  To me there’s so many ways to create a deck with a sexy design, compared to using brick pavers, which to me have become boring and overused.

Now that it’s Hampton’s and Jersey shore time, this is the perfect way to spend your time by the pool.

And with all the exotic woods and composite materials that are available today, there’s no reason not to check them out when renovating or building a new home or pool.

Here’s a compilation of 30 decks from…30 dream decks for lounge lovers

The decks pictured here are my favorites…

They are simple and sexy..and of course the settings are perfect.

But if you’re considering updating your home in Tenafly, Alpine, Cresskill or elsewhere, these sexy designs can easily be incorporated into your plans. All it takes is some imagination…and a great designer.


The sexiest room in your home

Sexy showers by design…it’s all about the fantasy

There’s no denying that we dream up showers and bath suites with one think in mind…sex.  And we design some of them large enough…just for the fantasy…of what could happen, if the fantasy ever becomes reality…and that’s exactly what great designers work to accomplish in these luxurious spaces.

Here are five designers who created some amazing…and sexy bath suites that I found on

As with most of my post, there’s always a marketing twist to it, and this one is no different.  Realtors take note of the great photography, lighting and staging of the pictures (and there’s even some Photoshop involved). These folks were after the WOW FACTOR, and they achieved it…and this is what sellers need as well. This is what creates value…and a love connection.  It’s all about marketing.

Using your imagination and the right designer could turn you bathroom in Tenafly, into your favorite and most talked about spot in your home.

Enjoy SK 🙂

Sure, some of the overall items are expensive as a package.  But you can cherry pick any of these ideas and incorporate them into your own mini project.  And every one of these ideas will add value to your home…so it’s not a waste of money…the WOW factor never is.

And remember, it’s not just the items that go into creating eye appealing spaces…don’t forget about varying textures of materials, colors of plantings and different levels of the plantings heights and setbacks.

This is the stuff that sets an artist way above someone who just plants things.

This is a class act.

And with everything I post, there’s always a huge marketing component and opportunity that needs to be pointed out.

If you want to grab a buyers attention…sell your home faster, and for it’s optimum price, then these are some of the things that you HAVE to do…or get you Realtor to do.  These are the tools that can help attain the value you want for your home.  Its’ real estate marketing on steroids, and this is what buyers look for.

If this is what someone does to market their landscape design business…and their work, then why aren’t agents marketing their listings (your home) to these standards?  If as Realtors love to point out  …buying a home is the most expensive and emotional purchase of your lifetime…then why shouldn’t homes be marketed with that in mind

It’s The Secret To Selling Your Home

Note: Sorry that Schmechtig Landscapes is located in Chicago, but sometimes you have to go outside your area to find something spectacular.
