Allow these home and garden experts to get you ready for spring


Cabinet Gallery
Shades of gray are becoming increasingly popular. Wood Mode has introduced several grays in recent months, with the addition of two brand new shades just this month.
Twilight and Eclipse both broaden the spectrum of these rich shades available for every room in your home. Gray can be used as an accent color, a background color, or the bold primary color in any decorating palate.
Whites continue to be popular. Warmer shades of white maintain the light bright aspects of white, while making it easier to coordinate with many natural shades and the multitude of wood stains that Wood Mode offers.

Main Street Cabinet Co., LLC
Looking for a spring project? A kitchen makeover may be the answer—with new cabinets. Painted cabinets have always been popular and it’s very important to have a cabinet style and design that looks like it “belongs to the house.” A big mistake that a homeowner can make is putting in a kitchen that doesn’t fit the feel of the home.
You can also change the feel of a room from dark and cluttered to open and light by installing a lighter countertop and satin nickel hardware. If you are looking to add some warmth to a room, a wood countertop is the answer.

Matteo Family Kitchens & Flooring, Inc.
Granite countertops and backsplash tile designs continue to be a big trend in 2013. There is a growing amount of glass and stone tile mixtures, keeping designs fresh and exciting.
Cabinetry is still leaning toward the darker side of colors, utilizing sleek lines and stainless/glass mixtures for contemporary looks. Painted maple cabinets for the accents are used to give a “furniture look” to an island or a hutch—keeping the same style of cabinetry, just utilizing colors.

Young’s Landscape Management
Spring is time to refresh and a home’s exterior shouldn’t be overlooked. This reawakening begins by assessing winter damage and warm weather landscape needs. It includes re-establishing bed lines, over-seeding lawn areas and pruning dead or damaged ornamental trees and shrubs caused by winter. It’s also the time to consider lawn, tree and shrub care programs to protect the landscape investment from disease and pests. According to Young’s professional design team, springtime is also when homeowners often look to enhance their landscape and create a full-scale living environment complete with a tiered patio, an outdoor kitchen, artistic lighting and even a synthetic putting green right in the backyard. These customized outdoor spaces are a great investment, just in time for summer.
