Greige - The New Neutral

By now, you've probably heard the term "greige" used when it comes to interior design. In case you haven't heard, greige is used to describe a "new" color that is taking over homes across the globe. It's a mix between gray and beige - ultimately the perfect neutral. 

Greige is possibly the coziest color we've ever laid our eyes on. The most common use of greige is obviously paint. It brings this earthy, warm feel to any room, and you can decorate with any accent color under the sun because it's so versatile. At Woodmaster Woodworks, we like to think outside the box. So, we've gathered some of our favorite unique uses of greige that are NOT walls... 

Greige floors. If you can't decide between light or dark floors, go with greige. When choosing a floor color, keep in mind that there will most likely be a lot of it. It needs to be pleasing to the eye and match almost anything. If you're looking for a modern floor color, greige is your best choice, and there are so many variations of it!


Greige furniture is timeless. Especially if you have a stone fireplace in your living room, griege couches, chairs, and pillows will match perfectly. Griege is a stoney and earthy color, so if you're having trouble picking a color scheme for your living room, and you want it to feel welcoming, you can't go wrong with this new classic. 

Last but not least, we love these griege kitchen cabinets. To stand out from the white cabinets trend, choose this gorgeous tone with black hardware. It's totally different from your traditional cabinets, but safe at the same time. Greige cabinets are a fool proof way to cozy up your kitchen. We hope you enjoyed reading the Woodmaster Woodworks blog! See you next time.


Innovative Built-In Ideas

We know everyone has seen built-in bookcases, entertainment centers and mudrooms. So here is a series of innovative built-ins that we thought were very creative and useful. These tend to leave you thinking...

"Why didn't I think of that?!"

 Why just have recessed panels when you can use them to hide your books! This is just like in the movies when people reveal the hidden rooms by pulling a book, only you reveal the book by pulling the wall! This is great because it hides the clutter, and you can double the use for the space by hanging photos or dry-erase boards on the panels!


 This picture has been circling the internet for some time now, but no matter how many times we see it, I think I can speak for everyone when I say - I WANT THIS IN MY HOUSE! What a great use of space!

 
I love this one! If there isn't enough room for a cabinet, or cabinets aren't going with your style in a small bathroom, try recessed cabinets! It's great because the room is there behind the sink (thanks to plumbing) and it adds more space to your room! Plus, those nosey friends and family members will struggle to find what you're "hiding".


 Ok, I need this one. How great would it be to climb into the bathtub and have everything you need at your fingertips, and get out without leaving a mess? I don't like clutter in the corners, and with this design, you can hide all the shampoo and body wash bottles when you're done. Easy-peasy.


My laundry room is tiny and very difficult to organize. This is a terrific idea! Utilizing the doors, this person added built-ins on the doors and a shelf above the washer and dryer to come up with the most space-saving and ingenious design that is practical for any house!


I want this in my house! Save space by installing this cutting board inside one of your cabinets - now you can pull it out when you need it, and store it when you don't. Or, just use it for added counter space when you're busy in the kitchen!


Here's another ingenious idea for a staircase. No more wasted space under the stairs. This guy actually has a movable island that he uses as a wet bar. This would also be a great idea for a craft island - pull it out when you're working, and slide it away when you're done!

Unique Projects to Inspire any Home to Distinction

 

What makes a house a home? Family, décor, design perhaps. Lets take that one step further. What makes a home a dream home? Is it truly size, location, cost as so many are led to believe. I feel that it is in the details of the home that appeals to you, its sense of style or design, and certain qualities that this home possesses that make it your dream home. Some homes are almost that dream home and just lack that one more special touch to complete it and make it absolute. That is where companies such as Woodmaster Woodworks come in to add that special project.

 




Wrap Center for Craft Room

If you are crafty and have need of a craft room to complete your dream home, this is a great addition to your room. If you are not fortunate enough to give an entire room to crafts, this is still a nice space saving idea that could be built anywhere to keep your wrappings together for all the birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and other gift wrap we collect.

Secret Passage Way

The secret passage way makes you think of castles and hidden treasures. They are still utilized in homes today. They can be built as part of a library to access another room or as a door way built in. On the outside, you will see a bookshelf or built in simply decorated, the door way can be done with elaborate trim work to really highlight your bookshelf beautifully. On the inside another room, or possibly a secret room filled with treasures.
