Color is one of the most effective tools to establish the mood of a room. Before you even take in furniture, flooring, or decor, color sends a signal the brain. That’s why some 1,500 jails and hospitals painted detention rooms bubblegum pink in the 1980s: the color would calm people down and even lull them to sleep. “Several experiments have shown that different colors affect blood pressure, pulse and respiration rates as well as brain activity and biorhythms,” wrote The New York Times.

We recently underwent a complete kitchen remodel with the Mosaik team. Before the remodel, our kitchen was cramped and worn and was a difficult space to work in, with inadequate countertop space and cupboards. In addition, the last updates were in a style that didn’t seem to fit the rest of our older home.

They found ways to increase not only counter and cupboard space but floor area as well, all the while taking care to be certain the new design was consistent with the age of our home. The end result was a beautiful kitchen that looks and feels spacious and is such a pleasure to work in.
We are very happy with all aspects of this remodel – the job was done on time and on budget and the workmanship top-notch. We highly recommend Mosaik for your remodeling needs.
