Countertops: Cambria

We did a few blogs back in regards to countertop finishes and the pros and cons of each of them. We are going to focus a bit more on Cambria quartz and the difference between honed and matte.

The main difference between a honed finish and Cambria’s matte finish is that a honed finish can be more susceptible to staining and scratching. During the honing process, tiny pours or holes open up in the slab making it easier for it to stain. For Cambria’s matte finish they polish the slab at a different level than they would for a polished slab so it doesn’t effect it being nonporous or any of the slabs performance abilities.

Eco Nurseries

If you are an expectant parent with a little one on the way, getting the nursery ready is one of the best and fun parts of the whole process. Since we are very focused on Eco-friendly and sustainable design, we love using cork flooring for not only for being comfortable and soft on your feet, but it is highly anti-microbial. Perfect for when the little one is crawling and walking around. We also love using clay plaster for a bit of texture and it’s a great activity for you and your partner to do together. Lastly, use bedding made out of organic material like cotton. In addition, here are some other key factors to make your baby’s nursery its own and an overall healthier environment.

Walls: Use paint that has NO VOC to avoid those harmful smells that are commonly found in paint.

Floors: Use flooring that contains low VOC and are clean air certified. Aside from cork, marmoluem and bamboo are great products for this. If you have a desire for wall to wall carpet, look for carpet that is Green Label Plus clean air certified brand. Other options are wool, sisal, hemp or jute which also make perfect area rugs.

Bedding & Window Treatments:Look for natural rubber and organic cotton mattresses, along with bedding and window treatments that are made with organic cotton, bamboo and untreated fabrics.

Kitchen Organization

Organization is key whether you are doing a kitchen remodel or just want to update some aspects of your kitchen. Here are some fun little tricks to help you gain some additional organization in your life.

Spice Drawer insert – Have a lot of spices and can’t keep track of what cabinet they are in? Try adding in a spice drawer insert to keep them all in one designated area. It’s great to keep it close to your cook top for when you are prepping and cooking.

Blind Corner Units – Have a blind corner in your new kitchen layout and unsure of what to do? Try adding in a half moon Lazy Susan or a Wire basket unit that you can easily pull out. Both allow you to store items in those hard to reach corners and give you that additional storage.

Tray Divider – If you do a lot of baking this might benefit you more so. Having a tray divider allows you to take all your baking sheets and keep them in one designated spot. Not only making it easier for you to grab them, but also to keep them stacked nicely. No more having to bend down or reach high to grab that specific tray.
