Winning Interior Design Styles – June 2019 Social Media Polls

July 15, 2019
Published by

Throughout the month of June, we asked our social media followers to vote for their favorite interior design styles in 3 different categories: kitchen sinks, staircases, and great rooms. These facebook polls brought a great response so we are thankful for everyone who shared their opinions!

We have totaled up all of the likes and commenting votes to determine the winners for these three categories:

kitchen sinks: undermount vs apron front

This poll was slightly different than the others. Normally we'll provide a few pictures and ask our followers to vote for their favorite.  In this instance, we asked our fans to vote for a general style of sink (and provided a couple pictures of each style).  The apron front (Farmhouse style) sink has been a popular option with our homeowners lately, so we were surprised to see that the undermount sink ended up being our winner!

Today's sinks come in so many different styles, but generally speaking the two main options our customers choose for their kitchens are either undermount or apron front.  We can get into further options in future polls, but for this poll we kept it simple. Congratulations to the undermount sink style!

Staircase Railings

Not unlike to sink poll, there are nearly endless ways you could style your staircase railing. We decided to give our followers three very different options:

A. A popular wrought iron spindle combined with a maple post and railing.

B. A classic log cabin themed knotty cedar railing.

C. A clever built-in cabinet and bookcase in place of a railing.

Both options A and C received the large amount of votes, but the built-in cabinet option prevailed as our winner.  To quote one of the facebook fans who commented on this post: "Can you ever have too much storage?"

Great Rooms

Creating stunning great rooms has always been a focus of ours. So it's no mistake that several of our home plans provide impressive fireplaces and lots of natural light.

This ended up being an extremely tight race between our Magnolia great room and our Cottonwood great room. The Cottonwood plan benefits from a 2 story (18' ceiling) space and includes a huge wall of windows and a floor-to-ceiling fireplace. Apparently, the only way to top that is to provide a beautiful combination of materials and amenities. The winning Magnolia plan option combines cultured stone, shiplap, and a rustic beam mantel on a fireplace, with built-in bookcases on either side. This great room also provides ample natural light from the large windows located on two walls.
