Think about what will make your space feel special

Think through your design before starting construction

Think about what you want to “emphasize” and what you want to “hide.” With regards to exterior remodeling, you can have two primary colors throughout the home and add a third accent color where you want the eyes to go, for example a front porch. But if you really want to take your home to the next level, then you can’t go wrong with adding stone veneer. We make our own stone veneer in house and it is a nice touch that no-one else in our area offers.- HX Home Solutions & North Star Stone

Consider a butcher block countertop for your kitchen upgrade

One trend for 2021 has us falling in love over in-home butcher blocks made out of a variety of woods and incredible designs. Although it has been functionally relevant for years, it’s just now carving itself a place in the interior design niche as a stylistic kitchen symbol. Butcher block countertops are extremely pragmatic and versatile as well as visually stunning. Choosing the right wood for your butcher block includes ideas of color, strength, durability, and toxicity levels. There is a vast array of lumber options that can also be honored with a badge of eco-friendliness as it can be assembled or constructed from left-over wood. – Greenport Construction, Inc.

The right lighting can instantly upgrade your space

Don’t play it safe

Too often we are overly conservative when it comes to choosing light fixtures, going with neutral, inoffensive fixtures which won’t compete for attention with other elements of the room. Resist this urge. Good light fixtures are the jewelry of your home. Our brains are hardwired to notice lighting before anything else, so let your lighting be a true expression of your tastes. Likewise, our brains evolved to look for sparkle, as it often indicated flowing, potable water on the horizon. So consider a little bling. – Michael McHale Designs
