Commercial design has been, and will continue to influence residential design with innovative products.One of the main components we've seen becoming more prevalent, is the "hands free" or motion sensor technology. This has been integrated in faucets and light switches for a few years now and only a few manufactures have been able to achieve this successfully. Above is an example of "touch free" or motion sensor light switches for a master bathroom.

Quartz or Granite?

We often hear the question "Is it durable?", "Can I put a hot pan on it without a heat pad?". We recently completed an install of a caesarstone counter top in the south loop. This shows exactly just how durable these quartz counter tops are.  Beckerworks  our installers were amazing, and the finished product looks and performs unbelievably.

What concerns do you have when it comes to kitchens?

Maintaining a close design community

Refined Haystack is a home interiors network, where local stores and designers connect and collaborate. Using the power of technology, Refined Haystack showcases local resources via an easy-to-navigate functionality, presenting the city's vast design offerings and providing simple tools to help manage and promote design businesses. In an effort to streamline communication within Chicagoland’s design industry, the site was designed to serve as a resource connection point for sharing local home interior sources. Refined Haystack is a marketplace of local design – from top design professionals to the best in design and d├ęcor sources. The website also acts as a tool for the design professional and showrooms/stores to utilize as they work together and support each other. The goal for Refined Haystack is to act as a one-stop-site where designers, showrooms/stores and homeowners can communicate and explore; it is a place that thoughtfully supports everyone’s interests. I recently joined a Chicago-based online design network, Refined Haystack. I highly recommend checking it out, and be sure to stop by my profile while you’re there: http://www.refinedhaystack.com/designers/Stephen.
