TOP TRENDS for 2013

Here's our list of cool new products and recent product trends that we've seen from our customers in the Caribbean and Bermuda.

Art with Purpose.  Lighting your home can also be a great way to express your style. The new Bingo Collection from Progress Lighting features circular forms that serve as wall or ceiling art with distressed mirror surfaces, an ironwork frame and luminaries with etched opal acrylic diffusers. You can choose Brushed Nickel or Venetian Bronze finishes to bring this fabulously functional illumination into your space.

Bring the Outdoors Inside. Especially in Bermuda and the Caribbean, embracing the outdoors, the sea breeze and the beauty of nature is always in style. We work with Doors in Motion to automate doors and windows everywhere throughout the home. With just the touch of a button you can easily and seamlessly open your home to the outdoors.

Old is So New.
We're seeing alot of demand for distressed and vintage style doors. Shiloh Cabinetry has several options including Vintage, Weathered, and Olde World in some great paints and stains.

To achieve the aged looks, hand applied techniques are used including worm holing, edge and panel gouging, glazing, wearing, dry brush glazing, rock dents, paint crackle, water spotting and more. The result is a one-of-a-kind cabinet door to add style and beauty to your home.

Because you sing better in the shower. The Moxie showerhead + wireless speaker from Kohler delivers up to 7 hours of music, news and more by pairing wirelessly with your device enabled with Bluetooth® technology. Moxie couldn’t be easier to use. Docking securely into place, the magnetic speaker pops in and out of the showerhead for easy recharging of the built-in lithium-ion battery.



Looks So Real. Is So Durable.
You can have the look of real stone with the incredible durability of porcelain. The Legend series by Florida Tile is the first to bear the HDP symbol of High Definition Porcelain. The pattern is digitally printed on the tile to bring you the most realistic image possible.

You'll enjoy a rugged and low maintenance tile that looks just like natural stone. Check out our Tile page for more tile ideas.


Purge the Surge.
Recently many of our customers have installed whole-house surge protectors. The cost is around $700 (US Dollars) depending on capacity and connects right to your electric panel. Especially in areas with unpredictable power consistency, this is a minimal investment and inexpensive insurance against surges that wreak havoc on expensive appliances, computers and home theater systems.

  Sliding + Frameless. Frameless shower doors offer a sleek, elegant look, but until recently didn't slide. We now offer Hydroslide hardware so you can enjoy the beauty of frameless design with the functionality of a sliding shower door. We also provide the glass and wrap everything meticulously for a safe and successful shipment.


Organization is always IN.
Kitchens that are beautiful AND functional make homeowners happy long after they are installed. We work with Rev-A-Shelf to bring incredible functionality to new and existing kitchens. Rev-A-Shelf is always coming up with great ideas like a cut-to-size vinyl peg board insert for your drawers with accessories that fit easily for a variety of organizational options -- tidying lids, pots, canisters and more.

Another great product -- especially for smaller kitchens -- is the roll out counter, pictured left. Because, sometimes you just need more counter space!



Smart Solutions with Gabion Baskets.
Great for reducing soil erosion, creating structures like retaining walls, and landscaping, Gabion Baskets are made with steel wire mesh, are easy to assemble and ship flat which helps with shipping costs. When used with the right geotextile and a drainage plan, you can create an amazing retention wall for a great, sustainable solution.  


A Beautifully Modern View.
Stainless steel cable railing has been popular in the islands for a long time. It offers the maximum view through the rail, leaving your scenic surroundings unobstructed. Timbertech now offers a composite post and rail with stainless steel cables to give you the best of both worlds -- the longevity and easy maintenance of a composite or PVC material with the open look and life of stainless steel cable.


Blue Lagoon.
We've noticed the grotto or lagoon style pool gaining in popularity. Many customers are looking for a dark colored interior pool surface -- like the many options we offer from Diamond Brite. Also in style is natural stone decking -- especially in tumbled or french pattern for an authentic look.


Closet Options are Wide Open.
Many of our customers want bifold doors for their 96" closet openings, but most manufacturers don't make 96" bifold closet doors. We offer the perfect solution and can provide you with incredible quality and variety for your bifold doors. You select the 2-foot panel door you like and we'll install the hardware to create the perfect 96" bifold doors for your closet opening. The hardware system we use is heavy duty and built to handle the weight of 2-foot panels with ease.

Since most decorative doors have a minimum size of two feet, you can select from panel styles, decorative glass and more to fit your home's style.
