At New American Homes, Inc., we love details – little touches that make a home special, make it belong to YOU. In our new homes at Newport Cove, our waterfront community (and marina) on the Chain O’ Lakes, the details have a cottage flair. Here are two examples that do not cost much, but help give a home a custom look:
New knobs can completely change a room. In our Stillwater model, themed knobs add a “smile” factor to the laundry. Besides the knobs, the laundry room’s white cabinets have bead-board inserts in the doors, while the wallpaper features old-fashioned beach photos. Similar knobs can be purchased online or in specialty hardware stores.In a another cottage home, high wainscotting (made by simply applying strips of lath and chairrail over drywall, then painting), gives a normally utilitarian powder room a coastal feel. A tilt-type mirror plus a “period-style” toilet and pedestal sink from Kohler add to the overall summer home ambiance.
