Trending Home Styles: Fireplaces

November 27, 2018

In the past decade gas fireplaces have far surpassed wood-burning models in terms of popularity. They eliminate the work of storing, carrying, and arranging wood, tending the fire, and cleaning up.

In Hot Water?

October 30, 2018

Steam showers may have high initial cost, but there are few luxuries in a home that have such immediate, tactile and frequently used benefits, soothing aching muscles and providing a stress-reducing respite. The range of shower options, body jet configurations, shower heads and modern digital controls can give homeowners precisely the experience they prefer. If […]

Kitchen Cabinetry 101

October 23, 2018

As clean lines and simpler interior details gain traction in the marketplace, inset or frameless cabinet doors are also gaining popularity.

Trending Home Styles: The Contemporary Farmhouse

September 24, 2018

Homeowners are increasingly drawn to an exterior style that is popularly known as “contemporary farmhouse”.

Large Format Tile: Plan Early for Ideal Installation and Lasting Beauty

August 29, 2018

Large ceramic, porcelain, and stone tiles (18” or larger on a side) are increasingly popular for baths, foyers, and kitchens. With fewer grout lines, they are dramatic and can visually enlarge a space.
