Published by

Each Monday and Friday we post a poll on Facebook with 3-4 photos from homes where you are able to choose the photo of the room, detail, etc. that you most prefer through liking/commenting on the photo you like best. With that being said… You voted, we counted up the results and now we’re sharing our May 2017 poll results!

Throughout the month of May, you voted on your favorite: Laundry room, Amberwood exterior, living space, kitchen/dining area, backsplash, kitchen light fixtures, kitchen cabinets and front entry. Lots of kitchen polls this month, read on to learn more about the winners!

Brookridge Greenville Laundry

Laundry Room: Brookridge

This specific laundry room is featured in one of our Brookridge homes. It won by 72{447216cae66a4d332ab0ac71eb11e27716218036a4f422ac40162b059a195e14} of the total votes. This raised platform allows for a little more height, making it easier to access the machines, with a sink conveniently placed to the left. The dark cabinets are rich in color and compliment the homeowners choice of blue appliances very well!



DSC_0067Amberwood Exterior:

This exterior won by 58{447216cae66a4d332ab0ac71eb11e27716218036a4f422ac40162b059a195e14} of the votes. This color palette is warm vs. cool. The all over soft green color of the siding looks ravishing next to the small pops of brown and the dark roof shingles. The curb appeal of this house is definitely stand-out worthy and will catch the eye of a passerby. The stone detail underneath the pillars near the entry way give it a nice, natural earthy look, and the thick, white window casings give this exterior the perfect finishing touch.

Living Space: Tamarack IMG_5673

This living room/great room is perfect for winding down and relaxing, it received a majority of the votes, winning by 50{447216cae66a4d332ab0ac71eb11e27716218036a4f422ac40162b059a195e14}. This must mean that all of our living spaces are great! The wall colors are a calming, neutral color on the more yellow side of the color spectrum, which brightens up the space and gives it an airy feeling. This living space has a nice fireplace with stone detailing and a white mantel surrounded by white built-ins that can be used to keep this living room neat and tidy. Who wouldn’t want to curl up and read a book in this space?

Kitchen/Dining Area: Amberwood & Ridgewood 

For this category, there was a tie! The Amberwood and the Ridgewood both received 38{447216cae66a4d332ab0ac71eb11e27716218036a4f422ac40162b059a195e14} of the votes with the same number of votes.


So, first, we’ll talk about the Amberwood. This home was just recently built and is currently FOR SALE in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. White is the main color of this kitchen which gives it a nice, clean look. Plus, white goes with just about anything, so whatever accessories, chairs, etc. you have, it’s a sure bet that it’ll look great! Also, did you see those light fixtures above the island?! We’ll talk about those later!

Now, onto the Ridgewood!

IMG_2367This kitchen is pretty similar to that of the Amberwood, the difference between the two of these specific kitchens is where the dining space is located. This particular kitchen has a very classic look to it. The subway tile backsplash is soft and fits well with the metallic features. The white custom shaker cabinets give this kitchen a fresh look with the silver handles as perfect accents to match the metal kitchen accessories. This room is spacious and perfect for entertaining family and friends with the open concept plan as the kitchen is connected to the family room.

Both kitchen spaces are great, so we can understand why these two tied.


Backsplash: Amberwood

It’s no surprise that this kitchen also won for backsplash! It comes from the same kitchen mentioned above, that’s right, the one that’s for sale! If you haven’t already checked it out, click here! This backsplash won by 39{447216cae66a4d332ab0ac71eb11e27716218036a4f422ac40162b059a195e14} of the votes. The pattern is very aesthetically pleasing and interesting to look at. It’s almost as if you can’t not look at it! If you’re interested in this pattern, it’s called “lantern mosaic”.

Kitchen Lighting Fixtures: AmberwoodIMG_8685

Yet again, this beautiful kitchen has won another poll! These kitchen lighting fixture won by 64{447216cae66a4d332ab0ac71eb11e27716218036a4f422ac40162b059a195e14} of the votes. They’re definitely majestic with their resemblance of a crystal ball. Just make sure you have high enough ceilings for these Birch Lane Sanford lighting fixtures if you plan on installing these into your own home!



IMG_1708 2Kitchen Cabinets: Tamarack

Ok, so this one isn’t from our brand new Amberwood, however, it definitely is worthy of winning by 66{447216cae66a4d332ab0ac71eb11e27716218036a4f422ac40162b059a195e14} of the votes. These white custom shaker style cabinets are very chic and look great in any kitchen. There are see-through spaces that make the cabinets a little more interesting to look at and give it more of a modern feel.




Front Entry: Brookridge IMG_8620

Knock, knock. Who’s there? It’s the winner of this poll, the Brookridge! Winning by 76{447216cae66a4d332ab0ac71eb11e27716218036a4f422ac40162b059a195e14} of the votes, this beautiful dark wood-esque front entry door is indeed very warm and welcoming. The material used is actually fiberglass, made for great insulation!
