Blind Side Kitchen ltn 542x332 Houzz Survey Says: Millennial Homeowners Are Active Renovators and Decorators; Kitchens Remain Most Popular Remodeling Project Across All Age Groups  © 2009 Habersham HomeAccording to the fourth annual Houzz & Home survey, Millennial homeowners in the U.S. were just as likely to renovate their homes as other age groups in 2014.

The survey, which received more than 15,000 U.S. Millennial homeowner responses (ages 25- 34), revealed that a key motivation for renovation projects among Millennial homeowners is making a newly purchased home their own (55 percent), with one-third purchasing a new home in 2014 alone.

At Habersham, we know how important it is for our clients – of all generations — to create a home environment that is a true reflection of their own personality and sense of style. It’s why we focus so heavily on constantly fine-tuning and expanding our customization options and style features. The survey also indicated that kitchens continue to be the most popular interior remodeling project among all age groups, with nearly one-third of homeowners tackling this room in 2014.

Kitchen projects are certainly at the top of our list as well – both renovations and brand new construction.

The annual Houzz & Home survey is the largest survey of residential remodeling, building and decorating activity published. The 2015 study includes more than 260,000 respondents worldwide, providing insights into the home improvement activity of the more than 30 million monthly unique users of the Houzz site and mobile apps.

The Houzz & Home Survey was sent to registered users of Houzz and fielded in February-April 2015. For the full report, visit http://info.houzz.com/HH2015.html.

Spring High Point Highlights | Catskill Entertainment Center

Habersham Catskill Entertainment CenterHere at Habersham we create many  custom designs for individual clients. Sometimes, we think these new designs offer a number of appealing benefits and style features that make them perfect additions to our main line, too.  The Catskill Entertainment Center, shown here, is the newest example.

With this piece, we looked to the design styles and characteristics that define the delightful Catskills region of Upstate New York, once one of the most popular resort destinations in the country.  Known for its beautiful woods, waterfalls, and hiking trails, the area, just 150 or so miles from  Manhattan,  has attracted artists, musicians, writers and other creative types who have second homes there.

From craftsman style homes to cozy cabins to other influences that complement the surrounding natural environment, we found great inspiration in the design lines and styles we found here.  And they’re reflected in this new piece, which is tailored to hold today’s slimmer plasma TV sizes, along with other practical storage features.

As with all our custom pieces, it’s available in your choice of finish options and sizes.   Look for more information coming soon on this and the other pieces we’ll be introducing during Spring High Point Market in our Market Square Showroom, Market Square, 191.
