Designer Spotlight: Jessica Conner

We love seeing our products featured in designers work that we are now featuring them! Introducing the first of many, our new blog series, Designer Spotlight’s! Each month we will feature their work using our products from our family of businesses! First up is Jessica Conner! Check out her Q&A below.

I graduated with a degree in Interior Design from Mississippi State in 2008. From there, I started working in Kitchen and Bath Design and then went on to be the in-house designer for a couple of construction companies in Birmingham. I started my design firm in 2016 specializing in Interior Architecture and the finishes/fixtures of new construction/remodeling interior design. I assist my clients in the selections of all fixtures and finishes for their project as well as provide any and all necessary drawings/elevations/3D renderings of the project for construction.

Q: List one word to describe your style.

A. Functional

Q. What design trend(s) are you excited about for 2019?

A. I love the durability of quartz countertops and the colors just keep getting better so I can’t wait to see new options in 2019!

Q. What design trend(s) do you wish would die?

A. White and Gray everything… It’s too sterile.

Q. What are your favorite color combos?

A. Navy & White Marble – Antique Brass & Black – White & White

Q. What inspires you the most when designing?

A. My Client – If it doesn’t meet their needs, then it’s irrelevant.

Q. What project are you most proud of?

A. Total cliche but I’m proud of all of my projects. If at the end of the day the client is happy, I’m proud.

Q. Did you always want to be a designer? What did you want to be when you were a child?

A. Well yes and no. I wanted to be an architect for as long as I can remember. I did a year of Architecture at Mississippi State but changed majors to Interior Design.

Q. If you could design a room for anyone who and what would it be?

A. A master bathroom for myself! My current bathroom is 4’x8′ and I share it with my husband… We literally cannot stand in it at the same time. And after designing dream spaces for all your clients, you can’t help but daydream of your own future space.

Q. What is your favorite thing about CR Home?

A. The slab yard of beautiful materials that fit a wide range of budgets. And my local team – they always go above and beyond and always pay attention to the details.

Q. Tell us a little bit about the project photos you are attaching: What CR Home products are featured?

A. #112Ridge was a new construction project I completed with Saunders Bradford Building for a couple in Homewood, AL. The kitchen has crisp white cabinets, custom open shelving, and bright brass fixtures. It also features 3cm Alba Vera marble countertops. We laminated the edge on the island top to give it the appearance of a 5cm slab. Also, we used 6×12 Alba Vera marble tiles for a full height splash to the ceiling. One of the best features is the range hood that is fully clad in the same 6×12 Alba Vera marble. Viking appliances were used and, actually, Viking chose this kitchen and myself as Kitchen Designer of the Year for 2018!

Q. What are you most excited for the future of the architecture and design industry?

A. The industry changes so fast, that it’s hard to know where it’s going but it seems to always evolve for the better. Smart Tech, smart materials, smart fabrics – all of them helping to make everyone’s crazy and stressful lives a little easier.

Spring has finally arrived, so it’s out with the cold, and in with the new! We’ve pulled together some of our favorite spring renovation ideas that can boost your home’s functionality and aesthetic.

1. Revamp your Garage Doors

Garage doors are often overlooked when remodeling, which is a shame because garage doors make up about one-third of your home’s façade. If you’re looking to make a big improvement on your curb appeal, a garage door is the way to go! This simple upgrade can instantly make a statement and change the look of your home.

There are four different garage door styles that will complement an array of house styles. At Builder Specialties, and at our new showroom CR Home Lighting, we have an array of garage doors fit for every home’s design style. Each type is customizable by materials, colors, and hardware, by the manufacturer making it a unique focal point to your home.

Need help figuring out which garage door best suits the style of your home? Our product and design specialists at Construction Resources can help make a selection that will add value and flair to your home. Just remember to bring in a current picture of your home when shopping for your new garage door to ease the process!

2. Perk up your Porch with Outdoor Lighting

As the weather continues to heat up, so do the opportunities for outdoor entertaining. Enjoy those long spring evenings against a backdrop of softly lit ambiance with new outdoor lighting.

From hanging lights to wall mount and landscape lighting, there are plenty of options to choose from. Whether you’re replacing existing fixtures or adding new ones to light up your outdoor living area, Construction Resources has what you’re looking for.

So get outdoors and enjoy it at all hours of the night with exterior and landscaping lights from our two lighting showrooms, Colonial Lighting, and CR Home Lighting.

3. Install an Outdoor Kitchen

If you have a nice spring renovation budget, this one is definitely for you! An outdoor kitchen adds more entertainment space to your home, creates a secondary cooking area and is not only great for entertaining but can be a huge perk for re-sale.

Doing something as simple as a built-in grill with countertop space can really make a difference to your deck or backyard. If you’ve been dreaming of a chef inspired outdoor kitchen, complete with a wi-fi enabled smoker and pizza oven, this may be your calling. Whichever you choose, guests will surely be gathered around as you fire up the BBQ pit and throw on those juicy steaks and fish fillets.

Give the grill master in your family the kitchen of their dreams and make your backyard the new gathering spot of your home by adding outdoor appliances and countertops from our family of businesses.

Sealing? Not With Silestone Quartz Countertops!

Upgrading your countertops can seem like a daunting task, but we can assure you the benefits are endless especially when it comes to Silestone. One of the many exciting aspects of Silestone Quartz is that this type of countertop does not need sealing, and what home buyer or owner doesn’t want to hear that? The convenience of not having to seal your countertops when you choose Silestone Quartz knocks other surfaces right out of the competition. Though we must admit natural stones are beautiful they are porous and can potentially develop cracks that cannot be seen by the naked eye. Due to the pores in natural stone, it easily allows unwanted stains to form and bacteria to grow. Not to say Granite isn’t a great option, but to keep your countertops looking brand new, you would need to seal them once a year to avoid potential damages. But, Quartz is an engineered stone that will not demand as much maintenance and its composition makes this problem a non-factor.

No Unwanted Bacteria Found Here

As we said, the porous composition of natural stones can lead to cracks and allow bacteria to grow if not properly maintained. This is not a problem though when you choose Silestone Quartz. Silestone Quartz surfaces are non-porous allowing these countertops to be bacteria resistant and will keep those germs at bay. Bacteria that starts to form and goes unchecked on porous countertops can multiply rapidly in just a few hours. But with Silestone Quartz you can have the peace of mind that bacteria from uncooked meat, spills, and food crumbs are not thriving on your countertops. We know for many that the kitchen is the heart of your home so, this non-porous composition of Silestone Quartz is great if you are always on the go or spend a lot of your time with friends and family in the kitchen.

Spills Happen But Don’t Stay With Silestone

As much as we try to keep our countertops squeaky clean as the day they were installed, life happens. When you are in the kitchen from sun up till sun down preparing those big holiday feast, spills and splatters are inevitable. Don’t fear though if you can’t get to cleaning those surfaces immediately, this is where Silestone Quartz will have your back! When you have Silestone countertops, you gain the leisure of letting the spill remain for a little while before tidying up. In the end, not only are you going to save time but money on repairs from staining as well. You can sleep soundly knowing your Silestone countertops are ready to take on any spill or splatter the kitchen throws at them. This confidence in the durability of quartz countertops can appeal to any current or potential homeowner.

Add Value To Your Home With Silestone

Now that we’ve discussed the benefits of Silestone Quartz’ non-porous composition, let’s get to the good stuff, how mesmerizing these countertops look! If you are looking for chic and elegant kitchen design, this line of beautiful Quartz countertops will help you achieve it. When looking to resell a home, certain upgrades and renovations can potentially increase your chances of getting offers faster, countertops being one of them. There are three things home buyers are constantly looking for when finding a new place to plant their roots; value, location, and cost. This is due to the real estate market steadily increasing so more people are investing in the market. Research suggests that home buyers highly consider details when searching for a home now more than ever before. When you invest more money into your remodeling project, you will be able to up the price on the home. To learn more about how Silestone Quartz will help you maximize the value of your home, follow along with CR for all the tips and tricks.

What Do Home Buyers Want? Upgrades!

If you are in the home buying or selling market, you know that details play a heavy roll in any home design, whether that be interior or exterior. The kitchen is often thought of the heart of the home where a lot of time can be spent and home buyers want that space upgraded. Potential buyers must take into consideration the major and minor changes that will be needed to be made to the home. And more often than not, they would rather have the home already include these upgrades rather than tending to them after purchase. Quartz countertops are a great choice when looking to add those upgrades and value to a home. As we have discussed, Silestone is practical, low maintenance and elegant, something any home buyer can enjoy. Not only does it benefit the home buyer but seller as well, because the more money put into upgrades, the more money you can make off your property.

Now, renovating the kitchen will not always guarantee you a higher home selling price. You must do the renovations in a smart way and do research to better understand that adding certain brands and materials can either hurt or help you.

Looking to Modernize Your Kitchen? Two Words, Silestone Quartz

Let’s take a step back and really look at that kitchen, just take it all in. Envision the floor, appliances, cabinets and of course countertops. Is the kitchen outdated and in need of a little modernization, but you’re not ready to take the dive yet? Well, research shows that you can get up to 59% of the money invested in a kitchen remodel, and modernizing your kitchen is a great way to do that. Don’t be discouraged though, modernizing your kitchen may sound like it will cost you an arm and a leg but it doesn’t have to! Starting with the countertops is always a great way to begin the process. But how? We suggest dressing your kitchen with Silestone Quartz countertops. You already know that there are numerous advantages that come along with this countertop brand and material. It will give you that modern look you are trying to achieve and every owner new or old would enjoy learning that they look great without demanding a ton of maintenance. If you are wanting a modern kitchen, then Silestone is the way to go!

White Quartz Countertops Will Enhance The Aesthetic Of Your Modern Kitchen

White quartz countertops are the perfect way to improve the functionality of your modern kitchen! Getting white quartz in your home offers a lot of benefits that make it a wise long term investment. Most people are not aware of the many different engineered stone options that are available out there. This is the reason why homeowners, contractors, and builders will turn to granite or marble.

Below we will list the many reasons why white quartz is a phenomenal countertop material for your kitchen. You will also see unique kitchen designs that will give you a bit of kitchen inspiration for your remodeling project!

The Strength And Durability Of Quartz Is Similar To Concrete & Granite

White quartz countertops are one of the most durable kitchen tops in the game! It has a surprising amount of strength that goes well in busy kitchens! You can count on getting a countertop material that will stand strong against daily use. No matter what your lifestyle may be, with quartz, you will be getting everything you could ask for and more. The impressionable strength of this countertop is synonymous to that of concrete and granite. Quartz stone is, however, a little more forgiving.

Delicious, Scrumptious & Tasty Vegan Appetizers To Eat On Super Bowl Sunday

Vegan appetizers for Super Bowl Sunday? That’s right! Every year, America holds the annual championship football game of the NFL where the two best teams fight for their title. Friends and family come together on Super Bowl Sunday to watch the game, commercials, and halftime performance. What better way to bring together your loved ones than with great food and sports! Food is a very important part in Super Bowl Sunday. Everyone looks forward to stuffing themselves with mouthwatering food.

Veganism is on the rise but we feel there is a bad stereotype that makes people think plant-based food is not that great in taste. This is why we have put together a list of the yummiest vegan appetizers that taste so good you will not even remember they have no animal protein. Cruelty-free food is meant to heal and nourish the body, save the animals, and make you fall in love. In order for one to love vegan food, the food itself must taste amazing! As long as you can cook and get creative, it should be fairly easy to do so! Follow along with us to see the top vegan appetizers that will make your Super Bowl Sunday a great one!

vegan recipes

Vegan Quesadillas

Quesadillas are a major staple in any household and are very popular no matter your background. You can make quesadillas in so many different ways, and that is why they are at the top of the list! You can buy beyond meat, Daiya cheese, and load it with your favorite veggies. You can cook veggies on a gas range and make the most delicious quesadillas to serve with a side of vegan sour cream and guacamole on the side. Making vegan quesadillas is very simple!

Do not be afraid to look up vegan alternatives because there is a healthier option for everything. If you want cheese, sour cream, chicken, beef, or pulled pork, there is a plant-based alternative that resembles the texture and taste. Except instead of animal protein you are eating delicious live alkaline foods that are more nutrient dense and very good for your body!

Cauliflower Wings

You cannot have a successful Super Bowl Sunday without wings!!! Whether you like parmesan garlic, spicy barbeque, lemon pepper, or original buffalo, there is a healthier way to make them! My first time ever making cauliflower wings was only a few months ago and I was shocked by the amazing taste! I could not tell the difference between real wings and cauliflower wings! The secret is seriously in the way you season your food! You can make different dipping sauces as well if you’d like. Cauliflower wings are a staple in my home because they’re insanely delicious and very easy and fast to make! You can either grill them or make them using your gas wall oven.

Vegan Sliders

Sliders make great appetizers, they’re small enough to not fill you up but big enough to satisfy. Whether you like traditional beef sliders or the sloppy joe, there is a way to vegan-ize it and still blow your guest’s minds. If you are set and stone on having meat on in your sliders than check out the many beyond meat alternatives that taste exactly like the original. You can use a combination wall oven to make the yummiest vegan sliders that will make everyone at your house ask for the recipe!

Vegan Dips

Who doesn’t love a delicious dip on Super Bowl Sunday? You can make many different vegan dips in less than 5 minutes. I encourage you to not limit yourself on the different vegan recipes out there and try something new. If you are craving a creamy or cheesy dip then check out the vegan queso recipe below. You can also make delectable cruelty-free guacamole that you can eat with pita chips. Add the spices, herbs, vegetables, and seasoning of your choice! If your dip requires milk, make sure to consider almond, cashew, soy, or coconut milk. Plant-based milk has significantly more nutritional value than cow’s milk. You can also pick up some Daiya products if you are wanting the cheese to create the perfect vegan dip for your guests.

Vegan Brownies

For those of us who have a major sweet tooth, dessert is usually the first thing we look for anywhere we go. Vegan brownies are an easy plant-based dessert that tastes amazing and will knock your socks off. For my brownie lovers out there, you know there are many ways to make the brownies. Some people like the dry thin brownies while others may prefer the thick chewy and moist chocolatey-ness to melt right in your mouth. You can get really creative anytime you are making vegan brownies. You can add walnuts, almonds, cashews or even candy in them. Make sure to read the ingredient labels to make sure that what you are going to use is plant-based. Remember, health is wealth, my friends. You can bake your delicious vegan brownies in a Construction Resources electric wall oven. When your brownies are done you can take this one step closer and make vegan banana ice cream to pour on top if you’d like. Ben and Jerry’s has a nice selection of vegan ice cream options.
