When it comes to remodeling your kitchen space, there is so much to consider. Many homeowners and home builders will put a lot of time into choosing the right appliances, the best flooring, the most functional lighting, the longest lasting countertops, and the most aesthetically pleasing paint colors and backsplash designs, but sometimes they put just a little effort into making the most out of their cabinet space. They get done with their kitchen remodel just to be unhappy with their storage space, or lack thereof. If you are considering a kitchen build or remodel, the team at Fayetteville Granite would like you to make your cabinets a priority in your design plan.

Cabinets are essential to any kitchen space. Whether your kitchen is a small space or a large one, your cabinets can make or break the overall look of your kitchen. With so many amazing options to choose from in cabinets, there is no reason to overlook them. When looking for the best option for you, consider their color, size, layout and material. If you are in a smaller kitchen space, you may want to opt for a more open cabinet design with closed cabinets on the lower half and open shelves on top. If you have a good size kitchen space, you may want lots of big cabinets on top. You can have a standard size cabinet that leaves room between the ceiling and the top of it, but if you are looking to maximize your storage capacity and eliminate small appliances taking up space on countertops when not in use, you can also opt for cabinets that go all the way to the ceiling.

Consider kitchen cabinets with deeper drawers to hold more utensils and other dishes. Also, consider making part of your cabinet space a place to put your trash can out of sight. The possibilities with kitchen cabinets are endless.

When you are ready to find the perfect kitchen cabinet solution for you, let our staff at Fayetteville Granite know. We can help you make your kitchen vision come true! Give us a call at (910) 483-0468.

For what seems like forever, carpet flooring has been a flooring staple for homeowners and home builders. If most of the living areas of a home are not covered in carpet flooring, then the bedrooms at the very least tend to be. Over the years, carpet styles have changed, but they continue to evolve with time. The latest trend in carpet flooring has been a long time coming – waterproof carpet flooring. Now families can enjoy carpet flooring in nearly every room of the house, and they are easy to clean when it comes to spills. No more mold and water damage from wet carpet flooring.

Waterproof carpet may come with a heavier price tag than homeowners would like right now, but if they still want carpet flooring, the colors, patterns, and material options are nearly endless. Whether homeowners want plush carpet or a textured carpet, they won’t have to look far for design options. In today’s home design, people are choosing bolder colors for their carpet flooring as well. Many homeowners are choosing carpet flooring in multiple shades, like ombre carpet, or the increasingly popular tile carpet design. Bold and big colored squares of carpet are seamed together to create a unique look in flooring design.

For those homeowners who still want the beauty and simplicity of hardwood floors, but crave the warmth of carpet, area rugs are still a very popular choice. Some homeowners use carpet flooring sparingly throughout their home in places like staircases.

At Magnus Anderson, we can help you achieve any interior design vision you have using carpet flooring. Nowadays, not only is carpet flooring available in an endless collection of materials, colors and designs, but it is more versatile and easy to care for than it ever has been before. For some, the choice is either carpet or no carpet. At Magnus Anderson, we believe that you can have whatever mixture of flooring options you would like! The new style in interior design is to play around with different options until you find what is perfect for you. If you are ready to find your perfect floors, give Magnus Anderson a call today at (910) 483-0468.

If you are looking for a stunning countertop material for your kitchen space, you really do not have to look much further than quartz countertops. Quartz countertops come in some of the most beautiful designs and colors to ever grace a kitchen space. There really are some gorgeous options in quartz countertops. However, there are more reasons than beauty alone that make quartz the trendiest choice in countertop design this year. Many homeowners are choosing quartz over the most popular countertop choices, like marble and granite.

Quartz countertops are tough. Really tough. As a matter of fact, they are probably the best countertop option based on durability alone since quartz is one of the toughest minerals on the planet. They are made from quartz that has been ground up and mixed with resin. This means that, unlike granite countertops, quartz countertops don’t ever have to be sealed. Homeowners with granite countertops know that they need to reseal their countertops as often as once a year. With quartz countertops, homeowners do not have to worry about that.

They are super easy to clean and take care of as well. A little warm, soapy water is all you really need to clean quartz countertops. They are non-porous too, so mildew and bacteria are not an issue with these countertops. You wouldn’t want to use harsh chemical cleaners on the surface though. Over time, they could mess up the surface. Quartz countertops can easily be installed as well.

Quartz countertops are a little pricier than other countertop options, but believe us when we say that they are worth the price. Many manufacturers of quartz countertops will give lifetime warranties on the countertops, or at the very least 10 to 15 years. They know that quartz countertops will last a homeowner a long, long time.

If you are ready to make the change to quartz countertops, let Creative Stone help you! Our experts are ready to assist you in finding the perfect quartz countertop design for your kitchen. We know you absolutely will not be disappointed! Give us a call today at (910) 491-1225.
