As the year comes to an end, here’s a list of some of our favorite home renovations/selections made by our clients and team members. They are not in any special order:

  1. Spa-like Bathrooms continue to be the rage. Selections focus on tranquility, privacy, some indulgence, and easy sharing. Warm colors, stones, lighting and in-floor heating are all very affordable.
  2. Heated mudroom floors, built-in lockers and many organizational storage options makes everyday life easier for all ages.
  3. Classic marbles like Calcutta and Carrera top the list for kitchen counter and bathroom choices. Timeless Elegance.
  4. Carved limestone fireplaces define many of our living rooms often complimented and softened by  custom cabinetry perfect for showcasing family collectibles and hiding  electronics.
  5. Butler pantries with beverage refrigerators, a second dishwasher and microwave brings convenience to another level.
  6. A favorite kitchen appliance–  built-in steamer and steamer oven adjacent to gas stove top.
  7. Heated Towel warmers for the bathroom or laundry. We all deserve a bit of luxury.
  8. Centrally Controlled and Customized Home Automation-touch screens controlling alarm systems, multiple electronics, thermostats, timers and so much more. The best part is electronically challenged folks will find these systems very intuitive.
  9. Fun lighting for functionality and mood– crystal chandeliers, shade pendants, drum pendants and ornate sconces are a few of our favorites.
  10. Farm Sinks continue to be a popular choice–stainless steel  and copper finishes are new twists.
  11. Outside living spaces naturally extend casual entertaining and relaxation– pergolas, stone patios, built-in fireplaces and outdoor mini-kitchens maximize Minnesota Summers and Falls.
  12. Unique Glass faced cabinetry ( textured, fluted, antiqued, leaded) offer much individuality and style to any kitchen, wine bar, and even home office. Fluted,antiqued, leaded, textured or frosted all add character to a roomspecial  glass
