You have to keep up on those brands and trends so you can offer the best of what the industry has to offer to your clients. If you’re looking for new, great brands to set your custom homes apart from the competition, check out a few of our most recent, on-trend favorites:
Eclipse Cabinetry for Trending European-Style Cabinets
European kitchens are in these days. The minimalist style is experiencing a resurgence, and people are loving home designs that feel Scandinavian — clean and crisp, but with textures and pops of color that make a house feel like home.
Eclipse Cabinetry, by Shiloh, is offering the perfect design solution to that new consumer trend with their beautiful, sleek frameless cabinetry. Offering more storage space, with a distinctly modern, European design, this is a trend that’s just now taking off. Your custom home clients will love to see these cabinets on their list of selection options.
While marble and granite used to rule the world of countertops, consumers are quickly moving past that trend. Marble and granite are in demand today, certainly, but the engineered stone is quickly taking over the number one spot in the market. Consumers love the look, plus the durability that an engineered stone or quartz can provide. No maintenance, and no worries of weathering, cracking, or color fade, it’s a multi-functional option that homeowners can’t resist. And Cambria is offering the top-of-the-line selections. Not only is their product high quality, but this is also another example of a company that is producing so much in the way of options. With colors and textures of every kind, your custom home client is sure to find a Cambria selection that suits their taste, whether it’s traditional or bold.
