While model homes offer beautiful inspiration, there is nothing better than making your house feel completely unique—creating a home that is truly your own. From a cozy master bedroom to a modern outdoor getaway, we dive into five ways to make your own mark when designing your home.

Looking to create a bedroom retreat that is cozy yet refined? Pair wood-look tile with a modern, neutral rug to create contrast, then hang an eye-catching painting or photograph to tie the room together with flair.

Build a spa-like shower of your dreams by carrying a stunning mosaic from floor to ceiling, and pairing it with a lighter-toned wall tile. 

Eye-catching finishes

Whether you work from home or need an at-home hideaway to focus, you don’t have to sacrifice design. Jazz it up with metallic finishes and a distinctive wood-distressed, chevron pattern statement wall.

Install glass bi-folding doors to blur the line between indoor and outdoor living spaces. These striking doors support an open-concept design with their functionality, and they act as the perfect complement to neutral, matte flooring.

This outdoor space is a relaxing escape to enjoy a beautiful sunset. Highlight the outdoor fireplace without detracting from natural surrounds by using a modern, clean porcelain tile series.
