Top Interior Design Trends of 2016!

Categories: Home Design, Lifestyle | Posted: October 21, 2016

Looking for some new design concepts for the Manuel Builders home you want to build? Take a look at these interior design trends that have really stood out in 2016.


Two Tone Kitchen Cabinets

Contrasting two tones really brings out your furniture choices in your kitchen.  Try light colored upper cabinets and dark colored base cabinets!  Or you could also try light colored cabinets with a contrasting dark island.  Make it unique and make it you!



Deep Kitchen Drawers

These drawers are definitely more than just practical.  Not only are they spacious and accommodate kitchenware of various sizes, but they are also very modern looking!


Lighter Color Pallets

While classic and regal, dark reds and gold are no longer the icon in interior design choices.  Stick to light greys and whites to make your room pop with beautiful lighting choices!


Dark Appliances

Nothing shouts elegance than matching dark colored appliances!  You can even select a matte finish to keep finger prints and smudges away. Look modern, look clean!101_2320_isadore_mb


Statement Bathroom Mirrors

Make a statement with your bathroom and “wow” your guests!  Unique mirrors with features that really pop are sure to leave a good impression.  Also, combine glass front cabinets with mullions to add an extra flair to an already beautiful room.

How often should I change my air filter?

Categories: FAQs | Posted: October 20, 2016

All homeowners should check their air filter monthly to ensure there isn’t any build up. Air conditioning filters are needed because they keep dust out of the home and provide clean, cool air. Old and dirty air filters in an air conditioner will have a negative impact on the performance of the system, causing it to cool ineffectively and affect the quality of air inside the room or house. We suggest to buy filters in bulk to save time, cost and effort. This way you have your new filter easily accessible to replace every month. Tip: Set a calendar reminder in your phone the 1st of every month to stay on top of this important task!
