Highlights From Day Two Of IBS 2014

The show floor was buzzing the second day of IBS as attendees previewed building and home trends.

Day two of IBS featured an informative press conference by the NAHB and Better Homes and Gardens. Jill Waage, executive editor at Better Homes and Gardens, discussed consumer trends in home and interior design, while the NAHB presented findings from its latest consumer study “What Home Buyers Really Want: Ethnic Preference.”

The new Contemporary Door Option for Ultimate Swinging French Doors was the topic of conversation at Marvin Windows and Doors booth (C5520). This stunning door gives architects, builders and homeowners the choice of having Marvin’s industry-leading Ultimate Swinging French Door with a bold new look.

Outside the Marvin booth, outdoor decks and elegant countertops were some of the more popular items.

Trex Company, the world’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking and railing, showcased a variety of different products. Of those displayed, the Transcend series stood out most. This decking is made from 95 percent recycled board and is hassle free, requiring no sanding or staining to maintain its stunning look.

Hi there Alison, Could you add a long fringe to the boottm of the drapes? It would give you the length, but not the solidness of fabric, so heat might pass through it. Could you paint the heating element and molding the background color of the drapes so the fabric color would go to the boottm of the room? Here, I have all white drapes in most of the rooms, with painted and wallpapered walls. The drapes float about 2 to 3 inches above the cast iron baseboard heaters, but the wood work and heating are the color of the drapes so the color works to the floor. Alison, the questions of my readers are getting more difficult for me to answer, not seeing the spaces, but I still love the questions ;-} I hope I have inspired you a bit in some way, best of luck with your project.
