Define Your Unique Style

When thinking about your dream kitchen, what type of cabinets come to mind?

Is it rich dark stained cherry wood?

Maybe it is a clean crisp white paint?

Do you picture yourself having a rustic kitchen complemented by different techniques?

You are not defined by any specific design style and have the freedom to come up with your own. To some of us, that vision may still be undiscovered. Whatever your style, here are a couple of categories to help you determine the look you imagine your kitchen to have.

Stains

Green Haven Home Kitchen Perimeter: Hanover Beaded Inset Door Style in Maple with Evergreen stain and Java glaze Island: Hanover Beaded Inset Door Style in Cherry with an Espresso stain

Sometimes all a cabinet needs is a simple stain to allow the true beauty and character of the wood to shine through. Dark, medium and light tone stains each can create a completely different look depending on what they are paired with. Your style can contain a kitchen with all stained cabinets, or an island can be the perfect place for a stain to pop out amongst a beautiful paint color.

Paints

You can’t go wrong with a paint. A timeless white or neutral is something that will catch everyone’s attention for the life of the cabinetry. Tired of playing it safe? Maybe a bright bold color is what you need to craft an environment created by your own inspiration.

Techniques

A number of techniques can be added to a cabinet to add character and a certain look. These techniques include rub through, spattering, burnishing, dry brushing, small dents, worm holes, carved edges, rasping and glazing. Each of these techniques create a unique, one of a kind look for cabinetry allowing your personality to shine.

Antique Finish Technique

Vintage Finish Technique

Olde World Finish Technique

Seaside Finish Technique

Cottage, Heirloom and our Carriage Finish Technique.

Add a special touch

Aside from stains, techniques and paints, there are a number of different glazes that can be added to give detail to the cabinet design. Wellborn’s Brush Finish, a special application of Fawn glaze on top of a paint, is the perfect addition to any door style. Brush Finish is available on Glacier, Divinity, Crème and Vanilla. It gives the paint an overlay of a subtle brush stroke of glaze providing depth to the finish. This is accomplished by hand brushing each individual cabinet giving each a unique overall look.

Maybe it’s time to “Define your Unique Style.”

Design Details that Matter

When you’re planning the perfect space we all want to make sure that every detail is perfect… Right? That when someone enters your home they get it… Right?  and they can see how all the pieces fit perfectly together… Right!

I am always in awe of Southern Living Custom Builder Homes and the Southern Living Idea Homes because when I view these homes or I’m lucky enough to attend and see the homes in person it all fits  (every detail) like a glove. Just Perfect!

So enjoy some of the design details that have been spotted in one of the Southern Living Custom Builder Homes from this summer.

Showering: Smarter, Better, Cleaner

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is encouraging consumers to “shower better” this October by considering WaterSense® labeled showerheads as a way to save water and energy while ensuring a satisfying shower. The shower is where many Americans wake up in the morning or unwind after a long day, but it can also be a place where water, energy and money are sent down the drain. By replacing just one showerhead with a WaterSense® labeled model, EPA estimates the average family can save 2,900 gal of water, the amount of electricity needed to power its home for 13 days and more than $70 in energy and water costs every year.
