Now Trending: Contrasting Cabinetry


One of the best parts about getting to look at pictures of houses all day is picking up on new trends. One of the hottest trends we’ve noticed over the last few months is contrasting cabinet colors. Islands have stepped into the spotlight and are being treated like their own element. No longer are they beholden to the color choices made for outer kitchen cabinetry.

 

This mix-matching shows up most often in brown and white, but we’re loving this new design trend no matter what color scheme it comes in. It adds a dynamic interest to a kitchen and allows homeowners and designers to step out of the box with cabinetry, an area in which most tend to play it safe.

 

Check out a few of the kitchens in which we’ve found this trend popping up around DFW, they may just inspire a weekend DIY in your home!

Get Your Fireplace Ready For Winter


Colder days are here to stay and it’s time to get your fireplace roaring again. Before you fill your home with the warmth and smell of a cracking fire, though, there are some precautions you should take.

 

1. Check the Chimney: Have you called a chimney sweep recently? Experts recommend you have your chimney cleaned once a year. A fireplace is only as good as its chimney, so make sure you have it cleaned and inspect the exterior structure to make sure there are no obvious issues there as well.

 

2. Open the Flue: Ever started a fire and had the room fill with smoke? If you’re new to fireplaces, you may not realize that this happens when the flue is closed. Many people close them in order to keep out small animals when their fireplaces aren’t in use. Simply look up and reach for a chain or lever to open it back up.

 

3. Vacuum: A quick vacuuming of the flue, smoke shelf, and the surrounding hearth is the last step to preparing for fabulous fires for many months to come.

 

If you’re about to be without a fireplace in the upcoming winter months, we have plenty of homes that could have you curling up by the fire in no time!
