Kitchen sinks are an essential part of any kitchen, but it can be hard to find the right sink that fits your kitchen.  They come in different shapes, sizes, materials, and styles so picking one specific sink can be somewhat overhwleming. Let’s break the the most popular options down at a



Fireclay Kitchen Sinks

Fireclay kitchen sinks are made from a mixture of clay and glaze that is fired at high temperatures. These sinks are durable, scratch-resistant, and easy to clean. They are also resistant to stains and heat. Fireclay sinks are available in different styles and sizes, making them suitable for any kitchen.


Granite Kitchen Sinks

Although Granite Kitchen sinks have similar benefits to the Fireclay sink, it loses in the stain absorption department picking up stains more clearly than a Fireclay Kitchen sink would. It is also more susceptible to chipping or scratches, but considering it is a less expensive option, the granite sink is still a good bang for its buck.


Workstation Sinks

Workstation sinks are designed to make your kitchen work easier. These sinks come with

built-in accessories such as cutting boards, colanders, and drying racks. Workstation sinks are available in different materials such as stainless steel and composite.


Stainless Steel Kitchen Sinks

Stainless Steel kitchen sinks are a popular choice for many homeowners. These sinks have been around as a trusted option for many years and will still continue to do so. It’s price point typically falls somewhere between a Fireclay sink and Granite sink, but is also maintains the durability of the granite sink with the exception that the steel can scratch fairly easily when exposed to sharp objects such as knives. They also come in much more styles and shapes due to the popularity and affordability of them.


Farmhouse or Apron Front Kitchen Sinks

Farmhouse or apron front kitchen sinks are designed to be exposed in the front, with a large basin for washing dishes. These sinks are a popular choice for those who want a rustic or country-style kitchen. They come in different materials such as fireclay, stainless steel, and cast iron.


Double Bowl Kitchen Sinks

Double bowl kitchen sinks are designed with two separate bowls. These sinks are perfect for multitasking in the kitchen. You can use one bowl for washing dishes and the other for food preparation.


Single Bowl Kitchen Sinks

Single bowl kitchen sinks are designed with one large bowl. These sinks are perfect for small kitchens or for those who prefer a minimalist look. They are also easier to clean than double bowl sinks.


In conclusion, there are different types of kitchen sinks available in the market. When choosing a sink, consider the size of your kitchen, your lifestyle, and your budget. Whether you choose a fireclay, granite, workstation, or stainless steel sink, make sure it fits your needs and complements your kitchen’s style. Don’t forget to consider the apron front or farmhouse sink if you’re looking for a rustic look, and the workstation sink if you’re looking for added functionality.

Outdoor kitchens can be a great addition to your yard or patio, but they’re not all created equal. To ensure yours is functional and enjoyable for years to come, it’s important to start with the right equipment and supplies. Here are five outdoor kitchen must-haves that will help get your outdoor cooking space started on the right foot:


Kitchen Islands

Kitchen islands are a must-have for any outdoor kitchen, and they’re not just for food preparation. They can also be used as a dining table and bar area. If you want to add some storage space, an island is great for that too!


Flame center fire pit

There are many uses for a flame center fire pit. The first, and most obvious, is cooking. You can use it to make food on the grill or in a pan over the flames. It’s also great for heating things up if you’re out camping or at an outdoor event where there isn’t electricity available. Finally, it’s a great way to entertain guests by sitting around and telling stories while enjoying each others company!


Outdoor kitchen cabinets

Cabinet space is the most important feature of an outdoor kitchen. Without cabinets or drawers, you’ll have to store all your tools and supplies in cardboard boxes or plastic containers that can easily get soaked by rainwater or covered in dirt. Cabinets will keep everything organized and easy-to-reach as well as make cleanup much easier after cooking.


Outdoor kitchen countertop

As you begin to design your outdoor kitchen, there are a few things you should consider.

The first is what material you want to use for the countertop. The options are tempered glassstone or wood. We recommend choosing a material that will stand up well in harsh weather conditions and resist stains from food spills or grease splatters. Tempered glass is an excellent choice because it’s easy to clean and comes in many different styles such as granite look-alikes that offer the same durability as real granite without the weight issues associated with natural stone surfaces like slate tiles (which also tend not be suitable for outdoor use).

Concrete counters can also work well if you want something modern and industrial looking but still want something durable enough for everyday use by children or pets who may spill drinks on them occasionally! Composite materials like laminates offer another option where cost is concerned since these materials tend not cost much more than laminate flooring installed inside homes today – however this comes with some tradeoffs: composite products lack some qualities normally associated with natural materials such as granite slabs found inside kitchens throughout North America today (ease-of-care) so keep this in mind when deciding whether composite options would work best within any given situation before making any purchases based solely off price point alone!”


Grill cover

A grill cover is a must-have for any outdoor kitchen. It protects your grill from the elements, including rain, snow and sun damage. It also keeps animals off of your grills–and if you have dogs or cats that like to scratch at things like this, then they can be a lifesaver! A grill cover will also keep your grill looking new by preventing rust or corrosion from forming on its surface.


Wrapping It Up

?  Outdoor kitchen must have: Kitchen island. This is a great way to add space and functionality to your outdoor kitchen, especially if you’re working with limited square footage. You can use it for prep work or even as an additional eating area!

?  Outdoor kitchen must have: Flame center fire pit. The best part about this item is that it gives off warmth while adding ambiance to any outdoor area it’s placed in–the perfect addition for those chilly nights when you want to relax outside with friends or family members!

?  Outdoor kitchen must haves: Outdoor kitchen cabinets (or cabinets). These will help keep all of your supplies organized and easy-to-access when cooking outdoors; plus they’ll give off a rustic vibe that makes them look nice with other pieces from our list such as grills and countertops!

?  Grill covers are also important because they protect both grills from dust buildup over time, which could affect their performance if left uncovered long enough.”

We hope you enjoyed our list of outdoor kitchen must haves. We know that there are many more items out there that we didn’t mention, but these are some of the most popular choices among homeowners who want to create their own outdoor spaces.

kitchen remodel

The kitchen is a hub for the household. It’s also one of the most expensive places to renovate in your house. That said, it doesn’t have to be! If you’re looking to renovate your kitchen but don’t know where to start, follow these trends to make sure you are getting the most bang for your buck.


Open Concept Kitchens

kitchen remodel

The kitchen is the heart of the home, and it’s no wonder that this room has been at the forefront of kitchen remodeling trends for decades. You might think that since kitchens have been around for so long, there wouldn’t be anything new or exciting about them anymore–but you’d be wrong! Kitchens are still evolving as we learn more about how people live and what they need in their daily lives.

Kitchen designers are always looking for ways to make cooking more accessible and enjoyable, by creating spacious layouts with tons of storage space. Open concept kitchens allow you to spend less time searching through drawers while trying to find utensils or pots & pans instead of actually cooking food (which is kind of important). Another popular trend involves adding skylights above your stovetop so you can see what you’re doing even when it’s dark outside!


Clearer separation between zones

kitchen remodel

The kitchen is no longer considered a place where people just cook, eat and wash up. It’s also a social hub that connects the rest of your home. To make this happen, you need to separate your kitchen into zones:

?  Cooking zone

?  Dining zone

?  Living zone (the space where you relax)


Add a small pantry for convenience

kitchen remodel

A small pantry is a great idea for any kitchen, but it’s especially ideal for those with limited space. A small pantry can be built into the wall or stand alone in a hallway. It can be on the left side of your kitchen or right–it doesn’t matter! Just make sure that you have enough room to store all of your favorite items without feeling overwhelmed by clutter.


Bigger islands for extra seating

kitchen remodel

A larger island can be used for extra seating, storage and cooking space. If you’re looking to create a more open kitchen and dining room, this is a great way to do it.


Expanded eating areas

kitchen remodel

You want to create a space that’s conducive to eating and socializing. A breakfast bar is a great way to do this, as it adds an additional surface in the kitchen where you can sit down with your family or friends while eating breakfast or having coffee each morning. If you have limited space in your kitchen, consider getting rid of one of your cabinets and replacing it with a large table (or two smaller ones) that can accommodate everyone who eats at home regularly.

You might also want to consider adding more seating options around your dining table–maybe some benches instead of chairs? This will allow everyone at the table more room for their legs and make them feel more comfortable when sitting down together for meals!


Picking the right cabinet style

kitchen remodel

More people are going with traditional cabinetry styles instead of modern ones because they’re easier to clean, lower maintenance and last longer than trendy designs (which often look dated after just one year). Plus, they’re easier on your wallet since they don’t require many custom details like special hardware or moldings like some other types do!


If you’re planning to renovate your kitchen, these trends will help you make the most of your investment. They will also ensure that your kitchen remains relevant for years to come.

The best way to choose one is by looking at examples of what other people have done in this area. InDesign Kitchen and Bath has experience with kitchens in the Alpharetta area and can help you combine all the wants you have for your kitchen to bring it to reality.

We want our customers to know that we are here to help them create their dream kitchen! Come see us at any of our InDesign showroom locations to get quality service for all your remodeling needs.

Summer is a time for relaxing and enjoying your backyard. Whether you’re hosting a barbeque dinner party or simply lounging on a deck chair, there are plenty of trends in 2023 that can help make your backyard a delightful place to be.


Organic Space

An organic garden is a great way to add color and texture to your yard. If you’re looking for something that’s simple, but with a little bit of flair, then this is the trend for you! Organic gardens are all about maximizing everything: maximizing color, maximizing texture and even maximizing space! You’ll want to make sure that each plant has its own space in the garden so it can grow as big as possible without being crowded out by other plants or eaten by bugs or critters. These natural gardens give the backyard a bright green look which brings life to the backyard.


Meandering Garden Pathways

Your garden should be more than just a place to look at plants. It should be an extension of your home, and every detail should reflect that. The most important element in creating an inviting space is the pathway itself–and this summer, we’re seeing a lot of meandering paths with curves that are slightly wider than average people.


Natural Stone Pathways

Stone paths are a great way to add natural beauty and style to your backyard. Moreover, if you combine the elegant stone pathways with the gardens, it creates a picture perfect scene right in your backyard! Get creative with different types of stone and experiment with what looks best in your backyard!


Plunge Pools

CTTO: Starline

Plunge pools are one of the hottest trends in backyard design. With the plunge pool, people are combining the benefits of a pool with that of a cold plunge, all while taking up less space. It can be set at different temperatures so if you want to sit in a nice hot tub for the night or even take a quick dip during the day, these new Plunge Pools are extremely versatile.

Your bathroom is your place to get ornate. Choose flooring, accents, and shower material that excites you and shows off your immaculate style. Having been in the industry, InDesign sees firsthand that choosing product you want to represent that style can be hard, and we want to change that. We partnered with premier tile brands both in the Alpharetta area and abroad to give our customers styles that come from everywhere in the world. We also have a professional design servicing team that can help you with any consulting you may need on your bathroom ideas. We carefully gathered the best tile choices for bathrooms and discuss it in detail here.


Floor tile


Tile is the most popular choice among bathroom flooring options. It’s durable, easy to clean and comes in a variety of styles, colors, shapes, and sizes. Two popular styles right now are using large format tiles, 24×48 or larger, as well as using patterns like herringbone or chevron. Large format tiles cover more surface area, so you don’t see as many grout lines. Patterned tiling shows more grout but is very visually appealing, offering a work of art on your floors that makes you forget all the grout you’re seeing. The most common floor tile material is porcelain, and on occasion ceramic. Ceramic flooring isn’t too popular in bathrooms as it retains moisture more so than porcelain. Stone look is very common but is often just porcelain impersonating.

  • Ceramic–Ceramic is usually less expensive than porcelain or stone but may not be as durable over time if exposed to moisture often enough that it could break down over time; moisture can get trapped between and within this material causing damage down the road (and possibly mold growth). Sealing ceramic tile negates this effect, however it is an extra step that will take more time during bathroom renovation. Ceramic is more DIY-friendly, as you need only a tile cutter whereas porcelain requires a wet saw.
  • Porcelain–This material comes in both glazed and matte versions. Glazed or “polished” porcelain has a clean, glossy, almost reflective finish. Matte has more non-slip qualities and is more affordable. Porcelain is impermeable to water, denser than ceramic, and more durable. Porcelain also has more style options, with marble looks, stone looks, wood looks, where ceramic is more limited to a smaller number of patterns.

Wall Tile


Wall tile is a great way to add color and character to your bathroom. Much of the same material you use on your flooring can be carried up the wall too, adding elements to your bathroom that are not often seen. Accent walls are becoming increasingly common, typically using 12×24 or 24×48 tiles to highlight a bare wall in your bathroom or create a skirt around the perimeter of the room. Wall tile can be used behind mirrors too. If you have a vanity on a large wall with nothing but a mirror and a light, consider adding a feature wall that grabs your attention every time you enter the bathroom.


Shower Tile


Shower tile is arguably the most important part of your bathroom. It’s what everyone looks to change first when considering a bathroom remodel. This is for several reasons; one is that styles change so frequently that you can feel burnt out on a shower tile you originally liked after a few years, and two is that the shower is one of the most used spaces in any home, so discontent can grow fairly quickly if it’s not up to your standards, and rightfully so.

Acrylic, porcelain, and glass are local favorites to use for shower walls based on past renovations. Paneling is another option, and InDesign offers paneling in showers that have stone, gloss, subway, wavy, and shiplap styles. Glass can come in many patterns, including subway, arabesque, and picket, and can also incorporate other materials like metal or glass into its design. Acrylic normally comes in full format sheets like panels, and porcelain is available in large format tiles to keep lines to a minimum.


Mosaic Tile


Mosaic tile is the key to having a luxurious bathroom. Mosaic tile’s purpose is to accentuate the already beautiful tile you have anywhere in your bathroom. Put it on shower floors to have an eye catching and dependable surface to stand on, add a mosaic strip to your shower walls, or use it exactly how you would use a vibrant wall tile. Mosaics look gorgeous as flooring, too. Basketweave, hexagon, and pinwheel are just a few of the mosaic tile shapes with timeless looks that work in any house.


Tile has everything you need


When you’re looking to remodel your bathroom, there are countless ways to go with tile. All you need is to commit to a style. You can sprinkle it into your bathroom through just accent strips in your shower or go full bathroom renaissance and use it as wainscoting to skirt your walls. We discussed many tile options today, with porcelain making a case as the standout material of the bunch. Porcelain tile has become very popular for all the reasons we listed, plus its ability to be used anywhere, including outside. This is not to say other materials are inferior, as there’s pros and cons to using any material over porcelain. Browsing home improvement apps to get a taste of what you want changed in your bathroom is a great way to open yourself up to the possibilities of what your bathroom can be, and InDesign can help turn your idea book into reality with excellent designers and a team of professional craftsmen. Your bathroom is one of the most commonly used spaces in your house, you should love it every time you walk in.

basement is a great place to turn into an entertainment room, but you need to make sure you have all of the right elements in order. Here are some must-haves when it comes to your basement remodel.


Open floorplan


An open floorplan is a must have for entertaining, family gatherings and everyday living. Flow is very important and having your basement wide open encourages mingling and sharing space. Basements are typically relatively small rooms in comparison to the rest of your home, which makes the need for an open concept floorplan even more important. When hosting a gathering for any social occasion, nobody wants to walk through multiple rooms to find the bathroom, get refreshments, or entertain themselves during the commercial break. It’s a good idea to have the main television and couch in view of the entire basement, with private spaces being the only rooms shut off from the flow. Using certain colors, flooring, and windows also helps makes a space look larger if open concept still isn’t giving the look you want. InDesign offers free consultations and has a team of designers that can help you choose all the right materials for your renovation.


Kitchenette + bar


A kitchenette is a smaller version of a full kitchen, but it can still be used for cooking and entertaining. A standard kitchenette usually includes a sink, microwave, fridge and cabinetry. This is great for keeping snacks around for whomever accompanies the basement the most and keep unnecessary trips up and down the stairs every time you need something. A kitchenette is closely related to a standard wet bar, so it’s no secret as to why most basements have a combination of the two. Floating shelves in lieu of upper cabinets can save you money while offering a display for your drinks of choice, and a bar/kitchenette duo offers a gathering space when hosting parties.




A spare bedroom is a commodity you’ll wonder how you lived without. Whether it be relatives dropping in unannounced, having friends over and need a place for them to retreat to, or kids wanting to show their independence under your roof and having a floor to themselves, a basement bedroom ends up being utilized much more than you may think. You can even rent out this space as an income generator–and in Alpharetta’s market today, it’s almost a no brainer; there’s tenants lining up to choose from that can have this proximity to Atlanta and be in this job market. Airbnb offers all the same benefits with even shorter stays, and you won’t have to pay cleaning services after every visit– you’ll be right upstairs!


Full bathroom


A full bathroom is another must for every basement, it completes and offers convenience to everyone in the space. Guests can be at ease knowing they don’t have to go upstairs every time nature calls and you can spend more time enjoying your basement with this feature. If you’re planning on using your basement to make money in your home, having a full bathroom will make it easier for residents to keep their hygiene products like toothpaste and toilet paper. It can also be helpful when entertaining guests who may have children with them who need baths at night or in the morning before heading out.


Storage area


A storage area is an essential element in any home. The size of your storage area depends on how much you need to store, but no matter its size, it doesn’t need much to be an important part of your home. Many unfinished basements leave about a quarter or less of the space walled off to use as storage. You don’t even need to finish the walls of the storage area, as it’s almost always behind a door with no eyes and rare foot traffic. This saves you a considerable amount of time and money when considering a remodel.


Entertainment units


If you’re a golfer, or know someone who is, then a golf simulator is the perfect addition to any basement remodel. They can be fun for all ages! Golf simulators are a form of a video game that let you swing a ball at a screen and have graphics take the ball from the point of contact into the virtual reality, letting you play on an 18-hole course in the comfort of your home! Companies like Skytrak have brand new technology for lovers of the sport and provide an exciting way to spend time with friends and family while improving your game at the same time.


Movie theater


A movie theater is a great way to use space for entertaining and watching movies, especially if you have kids. If you don’t want to go all out with a full-sized projector and screen, consider getting a projector that can be mounted on the wall or ceiling instead. Theaters are also a great place to watch sports and show off your home theater equipment. If you are not a fan of the traditional theater experience, consider getting a home cinema system. These systems have surround sound and can even connect to your computer so you can play movies from there as well.


Home gym space


A home gym brings the luxury and comfort of what would otherwise be a constant gym membership into your home. Thanks to new technology, you don’t need to fill your entire basement with racks and mirrors to get a full workout in. Tonal home gym is a great way to stay fit and healthy and is also a safer option than traditional weightlifting equipment. Tonal equipment uses electromagnetic resistance as opposed to free weights to give you intense workouts with up to 200 pounds of resistance! These machines offer a variety of exercises and can fit comfortably in the size of a bedroom. This minimizes space needed for weight training and saves your basement more space for entertaining and leisure.


Not all must-haves are created equal, and how you design your basement will depend on how much space is available as well as what you want the intended use to be. You can work with a designer to create the perfect basement for you and your family. When choosing a basement design, it’s important to take into account how much space you have and what kind of activities you want your family to enjoy down there.

The best way to choose one is by looking at examples of what other people have done in this area. InDesign has experience with basements in the Alpharetta area and can help you combine all the wants you have for your basement to bring it to reality.

Choosing a new sink can be a very exciting but daunting adventure. There are so many choices available that finding the right one can feel like finding a needle in a haystack. InDesign saw this problem amongst our customers and decided to gather a select group of sink brands to do business with based on the craftsmanship, rarity, and relevance we feel their products possess. Here we’ll discuss considerations we think are important to keep in mind before choosing a new sink, as well as features that we love about our vendors.


What to consider?

1. Get measurements. Measure the length, width, and height of your available sink area to see what you’re able to work with.

2. Figure out your style and material. We have access to top mount, undermount, double basin, single basin, farmhouse, drainboard, prep sink, virtually any style available. Our brands also offer sinks in popular materials like stainless steel, fireclay, porcelain, and cast iron.

3. Assess your countertop and decide if you want a lip on your sink or if you want an undermounted bowl. Some kitchens need the extra countertop space on their island or main countertop and can’t afford to lose it to a sink lip.


Which brand is best for my kitchen sink?

While our brands do offer the best of traditional options for different types of sinks, they’re far from typical in terms of style and material. Thompson Traders has many types of styles that work with any kitchen. They include colors like aged copper, semi-satin brass, nickel, and matte black. They also have a “tailor-made” category, letting you design a sink of any size, dimension, or shape and they bring it to life in a finish you love.

Bocchi is another select brand InDesign carries, with sink styles and colors that are incredibly popular with our Alpharetta customers. Fireclay sinks are their most popular as of late, a material that is 100% organic and recycled material used by the best craftsmen for centuries. Fireclay is melded and hardened under 2000°F temperatures, creating the most durable material used in today’s kitchens. Dealing with extreme heat coming from pots and pans is no problem at all. Due to their special glaze coating fused into the fireclay body, these sinks are non-porous with a uniform, scratch, and stain resistant surface. Bocchi also makes granite sinks crafted in Italy that are anti-bacterial, odor neutralizing, as well as impact and scratch proof. Our Johns creek showroom has an assortment of different sinks that we dubbed the “Alpharetta Collection”, a display highlighting all of the different finishes and sizes customers in our area have been raving about.


Island sinks

Island sinks are gaining popularity quickly in southern homes. Typically used as for prep or aesthetic, island sinks often have a filtration system to get access to cleaner water for washing vegetables or freshening up before dinner, letting your main kitchen sink be an active workstation during cooking. Because of this, trends for what sinks styles to choose tend to differ with islands. Our customers are infatuated with Thompson Trader sinks, as the ornate finishes they come in give a vibrant pop of color to any kitchen. Aged copper and satin brass are among the many red-hot finishes currently. These look like stolen artifacts from different eras, and they present all the charm and glamour you’d expect in your home.


Bathroom Sinks

Bathroom sink styles differ slightly from kitchens and elsewhere. Most prefer an undermount sink with a smaller bowl, however everyone’s style is different, and going with a lipped bathroom sink is certainly not out of the ordinary. Thompson Traders bathroom sinks collection includes freestanding and vessel mount sinks, meaning both the inside and outside of the bowl are intended to be seen and decorated. If you love bold styles that will make a statement in your bathroom, these sinks are for you. You won’t find a mixture of look, finish, and quality anywhere else on the market. If you prefer a more traditional looking sink in your bathroom, then Bocchi has options tailored more towards your style. Bocchi bathroom sinks still have pedestal and vessel styles as well as their undermount options, and the fireclay material looks like porcelain. These sinks show flair with alluring lines and rounded edges rather than color or shape.


Bar sinks

A bar sink can be the most ornate object in your home as well as the most utilitarian. Fortunately, we have options for both. Large sinks are not commonly used for bars, as their typical purpose is to solely provide a station to cut, mix and get messy. Average width for sinks in this category is around 15?. Bocchi has workstations sinks with interior edges to let a cutting board sit firmly over the sink while you work. There is a colander option too, if you’re ever bartender for the night and need a place to keep rinsed garnishes like limes or fruit wedges.

Many of our Alpharetta Collection options for bar sinks are sinks with a lipped edge. This detailing catches eyes of customers when they see it displayed, as the skirt gives a glimpse of the gorgeous finish your sink possesses and complementing countertops well.


For anyone looking to replace their sink, we hope that this article has helped you figure out what type of sink is best for your kitchenbathroom, or bar area. These sinks are trending higher as of late, and it’s no secret as to why. They’re handcrafted, look beautiful, and last longer than store-bought brands. There are so many choices available today, it can seem overwhelming when trying to decide what would work best in your bathroom or kitchen. We want our customers to know that we are here to help them find the perfect piece at an affordable price! Come see us at any of our InDesign showroom locations to get quality service for all your remodeling needs.

Foyer trends

Everyone loves walking into a home and immediately seeing something that stands out. It’s refreshing to see and triggers and eagerness to want to see the rest of your home. Your entrance foyer is your home’s first impression. Having floors that stand out harbors respect from your visitors and constant compliments about the style you’ve created in your space. Foyers are one of the easiest places in our homes to change too as the square footage is usually limited, meaning you can go all out in this tiny space! Here are some hot trends we’re seeing from homeowners in Alpharetta.


Herringbone and Parquet

Foyer trends

Herringbone and parquet are timeless looks that have been around forever and still going strong. Herringbone is a very uniform look that doesn’t change the rest of your home’s style at all–it just accentuates it. Parquet, on the other hand, adds a midcentury element to your space that can be used to give off any number of vibes: elegance and luxury, warmth and comfort, or old-school charm. Your furniture and decor choices get to decide which. Both options are great choices if you want something classic without dipping into styles that may not work for the typical, traditional Georgian home.


Slate tile

Foyer trends

Slate is another popular option as of late because of its versatility with surrounding design. Slate tile has many different faces, it could look rusty or oxidized, solid black, or an assortment of different shades. Slate is very durable and easy to clean, doesn’t show its age or dirtiness. The dark color of slate also attracts light, perfect for a foyer with windows.


Porcelain slabs

Foyer trends

Porcelain slabs continue to be a hot commodity in entrance foyers. The porcelain look is a very modern and luxurious one, most commonly used in estates and the nicest houses in any given neighborhood. Don’t let this information sway your decision-making though. Using porcelain in your foyer shows you hold a very high standard for your home, and you want to showcase that. The material is durable, easy to maintain and resists moisture, scratches and stains. Porcelain tiles are ideal for high-traffic areas as they are hard-wearing and resistant to impact damage. Porcelain can be purchased in matte or polished finishes depending on the look you want to achieve.


Mosaic tile is for the eccentric and love walking into a work of art everyday

Foyer trends

Mosaic tile is an eccentric look that is attracting a wide range of buyers. Young homeowners love walking into what feels like a work of art every day, and experienced homeowners love the popular retro look it conveys. Mosaic tiles are often made up from various materials including glass, stone and ceramic. There are also porcelain mosaics with patterns and designs that look stunning on display in an entrance foyer. If you’re the anti-cookie cutter type and want something that stands out from the crowd, then this might be just what you need!


The right flooring will make your entrance Foyer stand out

Foyer trends

Tile is typically an overlooked material by homeowners when choosing to remodel. There’s a stigma surrounding it, with lots of people assuming it’s more expensive than it is. Builders also often shy away from using tile in homes due to the recent labor shortage. Tile adds fine detail to your home that other materials just can’t offer, and here we’ll discuss what trends are the hottest for making your home unique in 2023.


Bookmatch tile

Bookmatch tile is the newest way to make a statement and create visual interest in your home. This tile installation involves mirroring the pattern so that it looks like one continuous slab. This completely changes the game for tiling your home, as you now have the option to make it look like you have a one-of-a-kind slab of gorgeous stone to call your own. Book matching tile is great for those with a large area between cabinets that regular backsplash wouldn’t do justice. It can also be a statement piece in your bathroom or the primary material for a fireplace. Book matching will make its destination look like a work of art, so use with the intention of dropping jaws.


24×48 Tile

24×48 tile is a popular choice because it’s a good size for flooring and walls. It’s also a great option for large rooms, as it covers more space than traditional tile and gives less breaks in the pattern with fewer grout lines. Fewer grout lines also make the idea of cleaning less daunting. 24×48 comes in a polished and matte variety with countless looks, from large, gorgeous veins running throughout, to cloudy neutral colors that offer more subtlety. There are also stone and metal look designs, meaning you have styles to match if you want these tiles in a living room or basement.


Tiling on fireplace

Porcelain is a great material for the fireplace, something we at InDesign and homeowners all over Alpharetta are discovering more every day in 2023. It comes in a wide range of designs and colors, so you can easily find one that matches your home decor. If you’re looking for something with less texture and a look that always looks clean and dazzling, Italian porcelain is an excellent option–but if you want something that puts your fireplace into a class by itself, go for a mosaic tile. Having a pattern, you’d only see as a backsplash anywhere else on your fireplace is sure to be a showstopper.


Mosaic accent tile in bathroom

Mosaic accent tile is a long-time trend to add color and texture to a bathroom. It also draws attention, which means you can use it anywhere you want eyes on your space. What part of your bathroom do your eyes go first? Is it the large shower with very uniform subway, begging for some flair? You can add mosaic tile down the middle of your wall or on the floor of your shower. New vanity, but still don’t think it’s the center of attention? Put a mosaic backsplash behind your mirror with the same width as your vanity and going all the way up to ceiling. Have an elegant tub and want to capitalize its presence even more? Put an accent wall of your favorite tile that complements the tub directly behind it, so that you and anyone else that walks into your bathroom see its glory on full display.


Mosaic tile flooring

Mosaic tile flooring is a new and eccentric way to add interest and color to a bathroom or kitchen. Another popular trend in flooring is to have a colorful glass or other mosaic flooring in your entrance foyer to give appeal right when you walk in the door. Many creative innovators have tried this with massive success, making a foyer you’d see out of a Frank Lloyd Wright magazine. Mosaic tiles come in many colors and styles, so there will be options for any style your kitchen or foyer employs. Choosing a mosaic porcelain tile for your kitchen or bathroom gives a very unique sense of character to the room and will shoot down any “cookie cutter” thoughts you may have about your floorplan.


Tile trends are changing with the times

Tile trends are changing with the times. While tile has been an important part of bathroom design for decades, its prevalence in kitchens and other living spaces is increasing as well. Tile is a good investment, as it will last a long time and can be easily replaced if necessary. Tile comes in many styles and colors now–from traditional to modern, there’s something for every taste! You can find tiles that match your existing decor or create an entirely new look for your space by choosing something completely different than what you have now. So go ahead and explore all the tile we have to offer; we at InDesign are sure you’ll love what you find!

We hope you enjoyed learning about tile trends for 2023. Tile is one of the most versatile and long-lasting materials for home decorating, and it’s easy to see why this trend will continue into the future. We can help you define your taste to choose what’s right for you, or help you find a brand-new look!

Looking to improve the feel and look of your home? Home remodeling is the name of the game, as well as our bread and butter. Kitchen and bathroom remodels are by far the most popular types, but we aren’t limited to just those two. Not only does it improve the look and feel of one of the most important rooms in your house but upgrading these rooms can also increase the value of your property. If you’re considering any kind of remodel, here are some reasons why it’s a smart investment and some tips for making it a success.

A remodel can improve the functionality of your space. If your home is outdated, cramped, or plain awkward, remodeling can open the room and make it more comfortable and user-friendly. For example, you might consider knocking down a wall, expanding a room entrance, or taking out a bar to help the flow of the space.

A home remodel can also increase the value of your home. A well-designed, high-quality kitchen for instance, can add significant value to your property, automatically making it more attractive to potential buyers if you decide to sell in the future. According to Renofi, a kitchen remodel can potentially recoup 100% or even more of the cost of the project when you sell your home!

A bathroom remodel can help you save money on energy bills. Upgrading to energy-efficient fixtures, such as low-flow toilets and showerheads, can help you save water and money on your utility bills. Here is a list of the average return on investment for each area of your home, according to Renofi:

  • Basements: On average, finishing this space will provide 70% ROI
  • Curb Appeal: Projects that involve exterior improvements – from new windows, roofing, and siding to painting and landscape maintenance – can result in as much as 80% ROI
  • Siding Replacement | Fiber-Cement:   69.4% ROI
  • Garage Door Replacement: 93.8% ROI
  • Bath Remodel: 60.1% ROI

When you’re planning your remodel, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

Set a realistic budget: Remodeling can be costly, so it’s important to set a budget and stick to it. Decide on what you’re willing to spend and what you can afford, and then plan your remodel accordingly.

Hire a professional: Remodeling is a big project and can be quite complicated. Hiring a professional contractor who is experienced in bathroom remodels will ensure that the project is completed on time, within budget, and to your satisfaction.

Be mindful of design: When planning your remodel, consider the overall design of your home. Your changes should complement the style and aesthetic of your home, not clash with it.

Plan for the future: When you’re making decisions about your remodel, think about how you’ll use the space in the future. For example, if you’re planning on selling at any point in the future, you may want to go for timeless styles that have shown longevity to prevent the next buyer from seeing something that came and went while you were living there.

Overall, a remodel can be a smart investment for your home. It can improve the functionality and aesthetic of one of the most important rooms in your house, increase the value of your property, and help you save money on energy bills. With a little planning and the right contractor, you can create a beautiful, comfortable, and functional bathroom that you’ll enjoy for years to come.


Adding Equity Through Flooring in 2023

Installing new floors in your home is not only a great way to update the look and feel of your space, but it can also add value to your property. With the start of the new year, several flooring options are already climbing in popularity for their durability, resistance to moisture and the wide range of colors and styles available. From modern to minimalist, traditional to retro, you’re sure to find something that suits your taste.

According to a study done by Angie’s List, upgrading the flooring in your home is a win-win for your feet and your long-term equity, with the average ROI being 107%. That’s an incredibly lucrative return considering today’s competitive real estate market, with buyers that are looking for homes that are move-in ready and require minimal repairs or renovations.

By installing new floors, you’re not only improving the look and feel of your home but also increasing its value for when you decide to sell. Whether your style falls more on the timeless side or what’s new and trending, there’s flooring options that serve the best of both worlds and keep the value long-term. Let us help you find your look.


Engineered Flooring

Traditional hardwood has finally found a true opponent. Engineered hardwood is made up of a real wood veneer on top of several layers of medium to high-density fiberboard or plywood on the bottom. This construction is measured in millimeters and has a direct correlation to walking comfortability, as a thicker plank can better support pressure put on it, as well as better absorbing sound.

Another measurement included in engineered hardwood is the mil value, which is the thickness of the uppermost wear layer. Increasing this thickness adds to the flooring’s durability and overall longevity. With the combination of natural hardwood look and durability, engineered hardwood flooring can give your home a timeless look that actually lasts a lifetime.

Engineered hardwood comes in a wide range of finishes, colors and styles that will fit any home decor. Additionally, engineered hardwood flooring is easily installed by InDesign, giving you the option to have your dream look in no time at all. Investing in engineered hardwood flooring is an investment in the beauty, value, and longevity of your home.



Tile flooring is a popular and versatile trend for 2023 that not only adds style to your home but also equity, with research showing that adding tile flooring can give you an ROI of up to 70%, indicating it could pay for itself and then some. With our slip resistant tile options, you can have peace of mind that tiles are a great option for high traffic areas such as kitchens and bathrooms and households with children or elderly members.

The range of options available, such as porcelain and ceramic tiles, offers something for every taste. Porcelain tiles are denser, harder, and more durable than ceramic tiles, while large format porcelain tiles are quickly becoming a popular trend for 2023 as there are less grout lines and more continuity in the pattern of your tile.  Tile flooring is also easy to maintain, with the finish keeping dust and dirt on the surface for you to easily wipe up.


As you can see, making changes to your home is something that will not only benefit the satisfaction you have in your own home, but it could also end up paying for itself and even more. These changes are calculated decisions that you’ll need additional input on before you start swinging hammers.
