Feature We Love: Wet Bar

An entertainer’s dream home is centered around making every guest happy and comfortable. On this list of amenities are things like open floor plans, extra bathrooms, a well-stocked fridge, and, today’s feature, a wet bar.


A well-placed wet bar, by the living room or main entertaining space, is the ultimate convenience. Who wants to have to run to the kitchen every time they need a splash of water, a new glass, or more ice? This amenity is also an easy way to allow your guests to help themselves without disrupting kitchen activities.


While it may not be the most necessary feature in a home, a wet bar is definitely an added bonus for every host-with-the-most.

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!

Black & White Makes Its Comeback

We’ve noticed a trend in our listings that we’re very excited about: black and white design. Forget old checkerboard bathroom tile, this trend is all about sleek style and wow-factor. Are you bold enough to try to pull it off in your own home?


Don’t believe that this classic trend is back and here to stay? We have the proof below and we’ll start with one condo that’s really doing it right. If you want to see the full condo in person, stop by this Sunday for the open house from 2-4.

Feature We Love: Nearly Neutral

Today, we’re talking about a trend that has been sweeping across our listings recently. We’re calling it nearly neutral design. This style is achieved when neutral furniture is livened up with pops of color and/or texture. The addition of interest, to an otherwise understated design, creates an elegance that can only be truly understood when experienced visually. So, without further ado, take a look at this Feature We Love.

21 Trends You’ll See in 2015

CM 21 Trends 2015 lg

The National Association of Realtors recently interviewed experts in home design, architecture, technology and more to predict the top trends that will characterize 2015.


In an effort to keep you in the loop, we decided to sum up their findings and show you where our homes for sale are ahead of the curve. It looks like 2015 is going to be an awesome year for home trends! Click here for the full article.

21 Trends You'll See in 2015

^1. Coral Hues: This bright color is youthful but sophisticated. Try using it outside or on an accent wall like the one above. (Pictured property: 4710 Junius St., Dallas)

21 Trends You'll See in 2015

^2: Open Spaces: You may think open floor plans are on their way out, but think again. Rooms, especially those connected to the kitchen, will continue to flow into one another. (Pictured property: 4818 Irvin Simmons Drive, Dallas)

3. Off-The-Shelf Plans: Homeowners aren’t springing for custom homes, but are now turning to websites for housing plans that outline blueprints, materials, and costs for a fraction of the fee.

21 Trends You'll See in 2015

^4. Freestanding Tubs: Sleek, standalone bathtubs are becoming a staple in a new style of bathroom that also features open spaces and a more seamless flow. (Pictured property: 3141 Brookhollow Court, Prosper)

5. Quartzite: Its reputation as a sturdy, heat-resistant, easy-to-clean natural stone has made Quartzite a hotter choice. Additionally, it mimics the ever-popular luxe look of marble.

21 Trends You'll See in 2015

^6. Porcelain Flooring: 2015’s affordable answer to hardwoods is porcelain, especially in bathrooms. This newly-popular tile ranges in size, color, and texture, but consistently wears well so it’s great in high-traffic rooms and areas exposed to moisture. (Pictures property: 4519 Cherokee Trail, Dallas)

7. Tech-Savvy: Home technology has become more accessible in price and usability, making it a top trend for the year ahead. You can find inexpensive ways to control your lightbulbs, thermostat and everything in between all  from your phone or tablet.

8. Charging Stations: You can’t speak about technology without thinking about how to keep it charged. Homeowners are moving away from large offices and toward small, carved-out spaces designed specifically to charge their tech.

21 Trends You'll See in 2015

^9. Multiple Master Suites: Multi-generational houses put this trend on the map. Grown children or aging parents can move in for long or short stays with ease when there are multiple master suites. Overall, though, this trend is much more welcoming to guests of all kind. (Pictured property: 2100 La Rochelle, Flower Mound)

21 Trends You'll See in 2015

^10. Fireplaces & Pits: The lure of a fire is predicted to be as popular as ever in the next year. Whether it’s woodburning, gas, electric or otherwise, expect fire features to stick around. (Pictured property: 834 Graystone Drive, Garland)

11. Wellness Systems: Air filters, water filters, and energy-efficient systems that have positive effects on the body will be worked into new homes.

12. Storage: Not just any storage, “specialized storage.” Think walk-in closets, extra-large laundry rooms, and anything that keeps clutter away from main living spaces.

13. Grander Garages: Car enthusiasts get their way with temperature controls, sleek glass doors, and car lifts. Also on the way in are big sinks or tubs for keeping the pets clean.

14. Keyless Entry: It’s not just for your car anymore. Keyless systems for you home’s doors that connect to phone apps and security systems are savvy and affordable.

15. Water Conservation: Drought scares across the country have turned homeowners more H2O conscious and made things like drought-tolerant plants, permeable pavers, and rainwater harvesting tanks all trends to look out for.

21 Trends You'll See in 2015

^16. Fashionable Wall Decor: True fashionistas will tell you anything goes in fashion, and now the same is true for your walls. Mixing and matching with frames, mountable decor, and color is all the latest. (Pictured property: 3218 Jubilee Trail, Dallas)

17. Cool Copper: Pewter and brass have had their day, according to the experts. When it comes to hardware and light fixtures, copper will usher in a new year of warmth and style.

21 Trends You'll See in 2015

^18. Sensible Scale: The oversized kitchen and the living room with multiple areas for entertainment and conversation are things of the past. Islands, seating arrangements, and overall room size will return to a more normal and comfortable scale. (Pictured property: 2131 Rose May, Forney)

19. Quality Sleep: We’re always told that a good night’s sleep makes all the difference, but now homeowners are investing in the idea. High quality sheets, high-tech mattresses, and calming scents will make 2015’s bedrooms the ultimate retreats for rest and relaxation.

21 Trends You'll See in 2015

^20. White Kitchens: If we’ve told you once, we’ve told you a million times; white kitchens are in and they’re here to stay. Varying shades of white in all materials come together to create one kitchen whose overall message is clean and crisp. (Pictured property: 9635 Lanward Drive, Dallas)

21 Trends You'll See in 2015

^21. Outdoor LivingNo surprise here if you’re an avid reader of our blog. Outdoor living, and anything that enhances, it is on-trend. Think saltwater pools, dog runs, and outdoor showers. (Pictured property 1141 Terrace Manor Drive, Prosper)
