Remodelers’ Choice 100

Every year, Qualified Remodeler magazine creates a list of the top 100 most requested products from their magazine. This year, there was a strong tendency towards bath products and products that make the home energy efficient. Here are my top ten product picks from their highly varied list.

#1 – Quick Drain – Designed for shower tile to have higher degree of creativity (your drain doesn’t have to interrupt your tile layout!) and cleaner aesthetics – always a plus in interior design! Available in 7 lengths, all with a width of 1 1/2″.
