DECORATIVE TILE | FLORIDA DESIGN WORKS
Glass, mosaic or translucent tile can be central to calming, luxurious design. Alternatively, as a way to channel a chic, retro vibe, Design Works also sees decorative tiles placed in either classic or postmodern geometric patterns as an emerging trend for 2021. Add a pop of ‘Illuminating,’ Pantone’s yellow-hued Color of the Year, and design may be elevated from ordinary to extraordinary.

CLEAN, MODERN LINES | YODER HOMES
Guided by their company core value of “unquestionable integrity,” Yoder Homes specializes in custom-built homes, remodeling projects, room additions, and historical renovations. Over the past decade Yoder Homes has built a reputation as a reliable source for homeowners looking to incorporate unique interior features into their homes. Many of these projects involve high-end finishing that requires a superior level of expertise and proficiency. Yoder Homes has shared that Suncoast homeowners enjoy living in spaces with clean, modern lines. To implement this trend, Yoder Homes has recently completed a large scale, remodeling project where trey ceilings and soffits were removed to create a flat, one-level ceiling. The complexity of the project was furthered by the task of leveling the room’s floors to remove step-downs in an effort to maximize water views. Yoder Homes understands that these complex renovations, which are often fashioned in a Coastal Contemporary style, require expert planning, design, and craftmanship. The Yoder Homes team can work directly with clients from start to finish or can collaborate with a client and their architect to manage the construction side of a project. In addition to home building and renovations, Yoder Homes also offers custom cabinetry, storage solutions, hardware installation, flooring and window coverings. To assist with the design process, Yoder Homes maintains a state-of-the-art showroom to display their wide range of high-quality cabinetry and resources. Whether a client is seeking a new home or looking to renovate an existing one, Yoder Homes is dedicated to incorporating practices that support long term sustainability to projects- so integrity and craftmanship can be enjoyed well into the future.
