Welcome Guests With an Expanding Dining Table

Posted on September 9th, 2014 by

Are you tired of trimming your guest list because you are worried you won’t have enough room at the table for everyone? Well, the solution is simple! All you need to do is install an expanding dining table and you’ll never need to cut back on your dinner parties ever again.

Not only will an expandable dining table allow you to entertain as many guests as you would like, but it breaks down after the guests have gone home. This means that it won’t take up that much space when it’s not in use.

Many dining table designs now come with inserts and drawer features that make storing your extra linens and silverware a breeze. This makes an expandable table ideal for those times when company simply drops by. All you have to do to accommodate your guests is head into the dining room and stretch the table out so that everyone has a place to enjoy a delicious meal together.

Features to Include in a Dream Closet Design

Posted on August 2nd, 2013 by

We can’t all be Carrie Bradshaw from “Sex in the City” and have our own custom-built closet best suited for our many Manolo Blahnik heels. However, you don’t have to sacrifice your life savings to have a closet best suited for your fashion finds. Here are few highlights in powerful home design that will help guide your way.

Lighting is essential for any closet. However, bright lights or fluorescent bulbs can fade clothes and leave fabrics in shambles. Opt for cove lighting that is recessed in strategic locations such as in the flooring and the walls. Alternatively, hang a vintage chandelier that is fitted with low watt bulbs for a glamorous choice.

As for the color scheme, who says that all closets must be solid white? Spice up your interior with a splash of color. Using a single accent wall painted in a dark color will add interest and depth to your space. Alternatively, you can paint the walls in a dark shade while using cabinetry in light hues, such as cream colored shelving on a navy blue background.

At Design Build Team Inc. you’ll find individualized home design solutions for your dream closet.

 

Key Elements of a Home Gym

Posted on July 22nd, 2013 by

Here are the elements that must be considered in setting up an home gym:

  • First, the fitness equipment in the home gym must be tailored to the tastes of the homeowners and their families. For example, there is no point to purchasing an exercise bike if no one is going to use it. Making sure that potential users are encouraged to exercise is essential to building a successful home gym.
  • Make sure to have something to keep users entertained during exercise. Popular examples range from having a TV in the room to music and audiobooks. Similarly, make sure that the home gym has conveniences such as towels and bottled water to make the experience as comfortable as possible.
  • Do not forget to install safety features in the home gym and its fitness equipment.

Design Build Team possess both the skills and the experience to help out homeowners interested in a home addition.
