Trends for 2017

Large Format Tile

Tile in larger formats, ranging from 16 x 16 to 36 x 24, will be increasingly popular in 2017. This format will be found in all rooms of the home, and commercial sites, on the floor as well as on the wall.

Vinyl Plank Flooring

Vinyl flooring has developed into an optimal choice for flooring with its incredible ability to mimic wood, stone, and tile. It can be used in just about any application, even in the bathroom or kitchen, due to the waterproof nature of the material.

Multi-tonal Carpet

Carpet with a heathered look is a smooth way to incorporate colors into the room without being too bold. This is great for those who want to add dimension and texture while remaining timeless.

Bold Patterns

For those who are living on the edge, bold patterns are always a great option. Patterned carpet will be found in many homes this year, with bold tile patterns taking the lead.

Contrasting Cabinets

Why use a single color on your cabinets when you can utilize two? Two-toned cabinets have popped up, using one color for the bottom cabinets and a different one up top, or using one for the cabinets and another for the island. This look is a great way to incorporate both of the colors you cannot choose from.

Semi-Custom vs. Custom Cabinets

Dalton Carpet-7912Dalton Carpet One is proud to be a dealer of the semi-custom cabinet line, Wellborn. We’re often asked what differentiates our cabinets from custom cabinets. The answer is: not much at all!

Wellborn offers more than 50 door styles, 6 wood species, and more than 60 finishes. This includes a vast assortment of stains, paints, glazes, and finishing techniques that range over a variety of design styles. We also offer a multitude of construction options and copious storage solutions.

Wellborn is family owned and operated in Ashland, Alabama. Once your order is placed, dedicated workers in these facilities carefully craft the cabinets, resulting in durability and great craftsmanship. Essentially, the same process as if you were working with a custom cabinet shop. They are all built, sanded, and finished by hand with high standards and a quality control department that ensures these standards are met.

Another great benefit of our semi-custom cabinet line is the guaranteed turnaround time. Wellborn keeps a very strict schedule on production and operate within a 3-4 week timeframe. This gives us control over the scheduling of your project and is, in general, a shorter time frame than you would experience with a custom shop.

There are some misconceptions that these cabinets, sometimes referred to as “pre-fab” or “manufactured,” are considered cheap, or of low quality. We do indeed have an economical entry-level line through Wellborn that would meet the needs of those with a smaller budget, but not all of our cabinets would fit in that category. Also keep in mind that not all custom cabinets are created equal. There are a lot of very skilled carpenters that create beautiful custom cabinets with amazing craftsmanship, but there are also “custom cabinet” guys that use subpar materials & machinery that don’t always create quality cabinets. As you can see, there are many blurred lines between the different types of cabinets available to you.

Essentially, there are very few things that can’t be achieved by working with our semi-custom cabinet line. A visit to our showroom will give you a glimpse in what can be created for your home and will get your creativity flowing. Our designers are able to tailor to your tastes and desires to create the kitchen and bath of your dreams!
