With the shelter in place orders that came with 2020, we all had a heightened awareness of the cleanliness of our homes!
This year, hygiene will continue to be a main concern, especially in germ-prone and high-traffic areas like bathrooms, putting an emphasis on easy-to-clean surfaces and anti-microbial fixtures.
Because quartz is one of the hardest natural materials, resisting scratches and stains, and is easy to maintain, it’s a top choice for homeowners this year especially. Quartz can easily accommodate all the frequent cleaning that homeowners are doing now. Plus, it’s non-porous, which means it can’t harbor as much bacteria as more porous materials. This is a vital consideration in a room that is constantly being barraged by moisture and water.
Quartz has a contemporary feel with sleek profiles and little to no seams, which makes them that much easier to maintain. Lighter finishes are all the rage, showcasing the warmth of today’s modern bathrooms. That’s because there’s a move toward organic trends that feature an eclectic mix of earthy elements. Quartz counters paired with natural wood is one example of this.
Bold Fox Development in partnership with Chesmar Homes, History Maker Homes and Empire Communities has acquired 469 acres on the northwest side of Houston in Waller County for a master planned community. The property is located north of Highway 290 near FM 362 and Owens Road, just north of the new 521 acre Beacon Hill property being developed by Wolff Cos.
This community will provide much-needed attainably-priced housing in the city,” said Alex Kamkar, Managing Shareholder of Bold Fox Development. “We want the community to have a pastoral ambiance in homage to the wonderful prairie land this region is known for. Future homeowners will be able to enjoy the quaint rural setting the City of Waller offers, while the proximity to Highway 290 provides an easy commute to employment in The Woodlands or the energy corridor.
