Finding the Perfect White

White kitchens are a popular choice for many, but you may not realize how many different shades of white are available for kitchen cabinets.

This stunning white kitchen, designed by Holzman Interiors, has custom cabinets by Dura Supreme. Dura Supreme offers many shades of white for cabinets.

Holzman Interiors is an authorized Dura Supreme Dealer, which means we use Dura Supreme Cabinetry in our designs in kitchens, baths and beyond.

Dura Supreme offers many options in styles and colors, with painted cabinetry being a popular choice, as well as classic and timeless.

This is a modern take on the white kitchen trend, designed by Holzman Interiors.

According to Karen Wistrom, Vice President of Marketing for Dura Supreme Cabinetry, “White painted cabinetry is a classic choice and works with so many different style preferences, from traditional to transitional and contemporary.  Although white paint is the most popular choice, homeowners and designers are designing with shades of white and gray to blend beautifully and seamlessly throughout an entire home.”

Homeowners can choose different shades with Dura Supreme’s new personal paint match program. Through this program, the company partners with Sherwin Williams to offer more than 1,500 colors in the paint palette for cabinetry. Wistrom said white and shades of white are the most popular choices, but in bathrooms or for a kitchen hutch, homeowners may select a more dramatic color choice.

For the paint match program, the Sherwin Williams color is selected and then a cabinetry paint sample is created for Holzman Interiors to review with our client. Once the color is approved, Dura Supreme builds and finishes the cabinetry for a custom look.

As designers, we are often asked about color trends and how to incorporate them. Although trends and fashion can be considered, they should not be the only deciding factor. Being able to select the perfect shade of white that complements the countertop and tile and works well in specific lighting can be more difficult than you think, but with these custom choices it makes the process much easier.

Renovate Your Bathroom, Rejuvenate Your Home

Ever thought about renovating a bathroom in your home?

Holzman Interiors has renovated every type of bathroom imaginable, whether it is a larger master bathroom with a spa-like feel or a smaller bathroom with clean lines.

A master bath with a feature wall is a great place to relax.

After a kitchen upgrade, renovating your bathroom is one of the top home design projects to adds value to your home. It is important to create a cohesive look in the bathroom, with coordinated faucets and tub spouts. Then you can get creative with custom tile or the latest in shower jets and rainfall shower heads.

Think about what you need — is this a master bathroom for you to relax in; a bathroom that will be used by the family, where a double sink and tub would be convenient; or a guest bathroom where a little luxury will be appreciated?

In master bathrooms, Holzman Interiors have designed luxury showers with double rainfall shower heads and wooden benches for a complete spa-like experience. If you enjoy soaking, we have also created many designs with tubs, including one with a feature wall with stone bricks and candle shelves for a relaxing vibe.

You use your bathroom every day, to get ready in the morning or to relax in the evening, so it should be soothing, with a design that works for you while pleasing the eye. Another popular feature is a handheld shower head.

Think about storage as well, having a linen closet or shelves for your beauty products can help you stay organized and keep the room neat and tidy. For a guest bathroom, consider leaving a shelf empty for guests to use, and stock extra new toothbrushes, travel-size soaps and shampoos, in case someone forgets their toiletries.

You can check out more of our designs on this website or at Houzz. Look at our finished bathrooms and let us create a bathroom you always wanted.

Storage makes organizing easy

Everyone loves to be organized and having the right storage solutions can make it easy.

Whether it is a walk-in closet or a laundry room that helps you stay organized, solving your storage solutions can help your home function more smoothly.

This walk-in closet offers lots of storage options.

In an upper Connecticut residence redesigned by Holzman Interiors, the clients requested a walk-in closet. This closet is an organizer’s dream, with shelving, drawers, containers and more. It offers plenty of places to hang or stack clothing, store shoes, and shelves for displaying ties or family photos.

A walk-in closet can help you stay neat and organized.

Having an organized closet, where everything is neatly folded and hung, makes it much easier to find what you have and easily create outfits or get ready for work.

In the same home, a laundry room with trays to hold detergent and laundry softener, as well as a clothing hamper that can be used to divide clothing by color, simplifies laundry, making it less of a chore.

Storage can also be used to showcase a collection, such as in this Chicago Lakeshore home, where the clients requested a glass storage cabinet for their wine collection. This not only stores the wine in a temperature-controlled environment, the doors allow easy access to take out a bottle to enjoy.

In a living room, a built-in bookcase can offer a great way to display collections, photos or books. In this Union Square condo remodel, the cabinets and shelving offer places to store items as well as showcase them.

The kitchen is another place where storage options can be used in a variety of ways. Whether you like your spices in a tall cabinet, or as shown here in a drawer, having hidden storage can help the kitchen stay organized, keeping ingredients on hand while not cluttering up your counter top.

Glass front cabinets can be used to store and display wine glasses or dishes as well.

Consider the items you treasure and work them into your design plan for a great way to personalize or organize your home. We can add attractive storage solutions to many different rooms.

Working with clients to determine their needs, and how storage solutions will help them, is part of our goal to not only create a beautiful design, but one that helps homeowners be more organized and simplify their life.
