Grant Design Studio Features Thousands of Options

Categories: Decorating Ideas, Family Homes, Houzz, Pinterest | Posted: March 31, 2017

Part of the fun of building a new Grant & Co. home is selecting features, finish materials, and colors in our newly renovated Grant Design Studio.  Our 2,000 square foot Design Studio is filled with traditional and modern option styles that will allow new home buyers the chance to truly customize the look of their new home.

Buyers can expect to spent two to three hours choosing everything from flooring to tile to countertops and everything in between. Our Designers encourage buyer to  bring sofa cushions or swatches to coordinate colors and styles.  Experts in current home décor options, the Grant Designers can show home buyers color combinations and materials that are trending right now and help them make decisions based on  lifestyle and preferences.

A great way to start thinking about options and current home fashions is to browse through websites like Pinterest and Houzz for ideas. Clip pictures of home interiors that you like from magazines like Southern Living or House Beautiful.

Of course, the selection process can seem overwhelming and the selection forms are detailed, but Grant Designers will go over all the details to make the process fun and easy.

Grant & Company has HOUZZ

Categories: Featured Home Plans, Houzz | Posted: July 10, 2013

Grant & Company shoppers can now see pictures of homes built in all Grant neighborhoods on the popular home and landscaping website, Houzz.houzz_1x

Houzz is a web site and online community about architecture, interior design and decorating, landscape design and home improvement. The Houzz platform and mobile appsfeature interior and exterior home photos, articles written by architects, interior designers and home design experts, product recommendations, and a user forum. The company was founded in 2009 and is based in Palo Alto, California

As of October 2012, the Houzz database contained more than one-million photos of residential interior, exterior and landscape photos. Users browse photos by room, style and location, upload their photography, and bookmark photos in personal collections the site calls “ideabooks.” Also by October 2012, more than 4.7 million user ideabooks had been created. Users can click on an image to learn more about the designer, ask a question, and learn about products tagged in the photos.

Houzz has a directory of 1.5 million home improvement professionals and home builders who use the site to connect with homeowners and those in the market for a new home.

CNN named Houzz “App of the Week,” calling it “The Wikipedia of interior and exterior design sites”.  The magazine Real Simple called Houzz “the online equivalent of clipping décor images from magazines; Bloomberg Businessweek called Houzz “An online antidote to the housing bust.”  Architectural Digest wrote, “This app will stoke your imagination.”   TechCrunch wrote, “Houzz appears to be a decent idea that’s been executed well.”   The Mercury News wrote, “You’ll find a nearly endless portfolio of excellent ideas for your swipe file there that you and your architect can both contribute to and comment on.”

We just think it is a lot of fun.  The Grant Houzz includes a “project” page for each of the Grant neighborhoods including Kensington, Brunswick Farms, Rivercrest, Montrose, Cherokee, Forest Hill, Maplebrook, Trinity Park, Mitchell  and Gwin Farms.
