July 21, 2010 – Homeowners face many challenges when remodeling a kitchen, bathroom, or outdoor living area. One of the toughest challenges often seems to be the design aspect of the project. A homeowner must be educated on which material is correct for a specific surface, what color mosaic will match a certain tile, and what types of liners or moldings need to be purchased to complete a room.

Brandi Smith, the Showroom Design Manager of the Surfaces USA Corporate Showroom explains, “A homeowner has so many things to worry about during the home remodeling process and the Design Ideas Gallery will take one huge stress off their shoulders. Homeowners can simply choose the installation photo of the room they want, then click on the “Buy This Room” button where all the natural stone and tile needed to duplicate that exact room is specified and is available immediately for purchase. The homeowner gets a professionally-designed room and saves thousands of dollars on the project.”

Smith continues, “All of the images in the Design Idea Gallery were created by experienced Surfaces USA Interior Designers, a $5,000 – $7,000 value which is what makes this online feature so fantastic.” You can browse design photos by room, or by professionally-rendered concept boards. The gallery includes a delightful variety of themed rooms, from modern and contemporary powder rooms, to antique or European kitchens. But what you see in the Design Gallery is not only what you’ll get- Surfaces USA offers a variety of natural stone materials on their website and can customize or incorporate your favorite stone into any of the designs as well.
