Let’s talk lumber. Have you noticed any current trends in terms of what homeowners and/or builders are using for interior and exterior spaces?
Energy efficiency is crucial. Homeowners and builders seek products to save on heating/cooling costs. Air leaks often occur in windows/doors. Often turning to energy-efficient, low-maintenance products to save money and time. For example, durable tile floors, fingerprint-resistant faucets, long-lasting colored pavers, and low-maintenance Trex decking. High-quality, energy-efficient products reduce maintenance and increase the enjoyment of your home.
What about kitchen and bath fixtures? Are you seeing specific colors or styles becoming more popular in the past year or so?
Black hardware and fixtures remain popular, with champagne bronze gaining ground. Warmer white hues and light wood tones are also in demand for a cozy vibe. Full-height backsplashes are trending, extending countertops up the wall for a seamless look.
When it comes to tile choices, people tend to get overwhelmed. Do you have any advice for how someone can start to consider what tiles to select for a project or a new construction home?
When choosing tile, think about the style, function, and durability of the space. Consider existing design elements and choose tiles that complement them in color and texture. In bathrooms, opt for slip-resistant, easy-to-clean tiles. Size and pattern matter too, large-format tiles make small spaces feel bigger and patterned tiles add interest to simple spaces. Pick tiles in materials such as porcelain or ceramic for durability and low maintenance.
