4. Cabinet Selections

One of the new trends in kitchen design are open boxes
installed under the upper cabinets to create more space for
decor and more storage for your favorite kitchen items.
Here are some examples:

We want to know what you think! Should we do open boxes under our kitchen cabinets? Or should we stick with traditional cabinets with no open storage underneath? Visit our Facebook page and vote:

2. Bathroom Tile

Ok, Design Team! It's decision time! This is the first time we have built this home design and we can't wait for the outcome! This is a more modern/contemporary design. The roof pitches are much more gradual than traditional homes and we want to include some modern elements inside and out to give it that contemporary look and feel. That's where you come in!

First up, we need to determine what tile to use in the bathroom of our Parade Home. I have included photos below of the 3 options we are choosing between.




We want to hear from you! Please visit our Facebook Page here: to cast your vote! There will be a poll on our wall. Remember to stick with the contemporary/modern feel. May the best tile win!
