Posted on April 23rd, 2015 by

There’s just something about the sea that inspires creativity, and there’s no better room in the house to get creative than the kitchen. To help get things started, consider the following tropical kitchen design ideas that are guaranteed to spice things up.

One way to start is to use bamboo. Bamboo flooring and wall coverings are durable and environmentally friendly. They’ll also give your kitchen a solid foundation of tropical charm that pairs well with stainless steel ranges and appliances.

Another element you’ll want to pay close attention to are your lighting fixtures. Tropical inspired designs that mimic pineapples or palm fronds are always good choices. Couple them with soft-toned paints such as beige and the effect is truly remarkable.

Finally, give your kitchen some splashes of color. Everything from pastel seat cushions to teal baskets can help create a tropical feeling. Couple it with some potted palms or rubber plants and your home will look as if its on the beach.

Craving a Classic Look? Opt the Tradional Staircase Design

Posted on April 21st, 2015 by

Traditional staircase design ideas are intended to conjure up images of elegance and class. From the soft and flowing lines of a curved staircase to the straightforward approach of a single-flight, we’d like to discuss some elements we want you to consider.

Start by adopting a multi-tone approach. Consider using exposed hardwood for the tread, and painted wood for the riser. Coupled with solid wood newel posts and an elegant baluster, the effect is truly remarkable.

Another classic touch you can include is wrought iron. Wrought iron looks fabulous when coupled with either traditional or modern architecture. Further, it’s durable and easy to maintain.

You can finish your staircase off with a beautifully patterned runner that flows straight down the middle of the tread. This is an especially charming touch when the color and pattern of the runner matches that of the walls. This effectively ties the decor together and creates a very comforting appearance within the room.

How a Craftmans Exterior Home Design Expresses American Style

Posted on April 7th, 2015 by

Craftsman home exterior design ideas are some of our favorite things to discuss. Their beauty and attention to every little detail is what makes them unique and timeless.

Craftsman style homes are true works of art. With their peaked gables, inviting porches, and tapered columns that keep them standing, no two craftsman homes are alike. However, they do share some common traits that give the homes a genuine charm.

Features such as large, multi-pane windows and grand entrances. Features such as strategically placed “ginger breading” and trim that gives the home a unique appearance worthy of those within fairy tales. At the center of all this is a partially paneled door that welcomes guests and visitors into your home with a smile on their face.

Finally, everything is painted with earthy colors that mimic those found in the surrounding environment. The finished result is a home that blends seamlessly into the landscape and looks as if it were designed by nature itself.

Our team would be delighted to discuss these and other craftsman home exterior design ideas with you. We invite you to contact us at Design Build Team Inc. today for more information.
