Tools To Help You Discover Your Style

One of the most challenging tasks when planning a kitchen or bath is deciding your actual style. With all the different media outlets – online, print and television such as (Houzz, Pinterest, Southern Living, Coastal Living, HGTV, DIY, etc.) you can quickly become confused about what you truly want for your home.

In the past a physical scrapbook or project notebook was the way you could share with your designer, builder or contractor your ideas to help them understand your wants and needs  – while this practice is still the norm – the majority of people have moved their project notebooks online in some format to be shared digitally to all involved in your project.

So let’s explore some of the tools that you can use to collect, display and share your style!

1. We offer My Scrapbook on our website – The scrapbook allows you to keep product ideas in a central location, and organize your thoughts, and send them on to your Wellborn Cabinet Dealer.

2. The Inspire App is a great way to quickly and simply organize your style and bring in your own elements then share with your Wellborn Dealer or Designer.

Inspired by the nationwide groundswell of interest in American-made products, Southern Living and This Old House are joining forces with Wellborn Cabinet, Cabinets & Tops of the Upstate and Dillard-Jones Builders to construct an All-American Cottage.

Located in the quintessential southern community of Verdae in Greenville, South Carolina, The All-American Cottage will be a stunning showcase and testimony to the ingenuity and quality craftsmanship of products made in the U.S.A.

MEET THE BUILDER  – WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO BUILD ALL-AMERICAN? 

Tom Dillard, Greenville, South Carolina
Tom Dillard, of Dillard-Jones Builders – Greenville, South Carolina

As a former manufacturing guy, I’ve seen first-hand the results of taking a raw material to a finished product that is sold on the open market. Manufacturing means jobs, and a lot of them. After almost a decade in the custom home building industry, I have seen a decline in U.S. construction jobs–a lot of it due to the use of materials and products made somewhere other than the United States. When I saw the news coverage on Montana home builder Anders Lewendal and his commitment to build a home with materials made in the USA, I was inspired to try it myself, especially after reading that the use of just 5% of USA-made materials in the construction of a new home means 220,000 jobs.

WHAT’S THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE DESIGN?

Our goal was to create smaller open floor plans with a strong focus on outdoor living areas. We have done this, in part, by taking cues from what we see as emerging new trends in plan design. Our designs include a focus on a spa-like master shower and no tub, and casual dining instead of formal rooms.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE FEATURES THAT MAKE THIS COTTAGE SPECIAL?

This home has great windows bringing in as much light as possible into the main living spaces. A variety of outdoor living areas expand the living space and 10′ ceilings in the main level help create an even larger feel.

In true All-American style, the Cottage features board-and-batten style shutters from Southern Traditions Window Fashions of Greenville, SC and custom made locally in Fountain Inn, SC. Adding to the authenticity and true southern touch of the shutters is the hand crafted shutter hinges and holdbacks by The Heirloom Companies of Campobello, SC.

The alley-style master bathroom beams an expansive walk-in shower and neutral colored cabinets and countertops that connect together for a crisp and clean feel. Cabinets are made and sourced in the USA by Wellborn Cabinet of Ashland, AL and Corian Counterops.

The interior of the All American Cottage features LP SmartSide panels, one of the fastest growing brands of interior and exterior siding in America.

You truly have to see this wall treatment in person – it is simple style.

From mountain to rock to countertops, the crisp granite pairs nicely with the subway style tiling and Wellborn Cabinets of the Kitchen. Sourced from a fittingly named city, the countertops were procured from Stone Mountain Ga and installed by Carolina Foothills Studio of Travelers Rest, SC.

Every Detail in the Kitchen is lovely.
