Say Goodbye to stainless steel sinks
Houzz expects sinks made with materials like stone, copper, concrete, and granite to become popular in 2018. Farmhouse sinks were originally designed to sit slightly to the front of the surrounding cabinets, so that any water flowing down the front of the sink would run to the floor instead of landing on and damaging the cabinets. Farmhouse sinks add a feeling of nostalgia to a kitchen and bring a sense of rustic character that enhances country- and traditional-style kitchens.
Training your eye to spot classic vintage pieces will help enhance just about any style in terms of interior design.

The National Weather Service reported snow from San Antonio into East Texas. The most recent comparable snowfall in San Antonio had been in January 1987, when 1.3 inches of snow accumulated, but the most recent major snowfall was 13.2 inches in January 1985. Magical!
What is the most important step in building a new house from the ground up? Most would say: “Choosing the right home builder.”
Constructing a new house is an enormous and not to mention, a multifaceted undertaking, so it’s important to find custom home builders that you can trust to bring your vision to life.
“It was really important to find a builder that went with what I really wanted and to bring life to my dreams,” said Michelle Baumert. “And it was really important for me to find a builder that wasn’t going to push me in a different direction.”
“I wanna do everything you do, so I’ve been watching you.”
