VIATERA® IN AWARD-WINNING GRAND RAPIDS HOME
Interior designer Sarah Beth Timmer used Viatera® in an award-winning home by Kenowa Builders.
The spec home in Grand Rapids, Michigan was part of the Home Builders Association's Parade of Homes.
DESIGNED FROM THE GROUND UP
Because spec homes are not created in collaboration with an owner or client, all architectural and material choices are left to the builder and designer.
"Projects of this nature give us a chance to design something completely new from scratch," said Timmer. "Unlike many interior designers, I'm deeply involved from the beginning of projects. I worked with Kenowa Builders beginning with the initial space place, through plumbing and electrical layouts, down to lighting fixtures and final details."
With the eye of a designer and the quality standards of a contractor, Timmer has high expectations for the products she selects. Viatera always exceeds her requirements.
TWO STYLES BECOME ONE
The award-winning home blends contemporary characteristics with cottage warmth.
"The modern look is light and airy, but it can get a bit cold," Timmer said. "We brought in cottage details-like wainscoting and traditional lighting fixtures-to keep the space warm and inviting."
Viatera in Cirrus seamlessly bridged the gap between these two styles.
"Cirrus is the clean canvas I used to pull polar opposite aesthetics together," Timmer said. "Viatera is a great unifying piece in the spaces I design."
VIATERA® FEATURED IN MASTER BATHROOM AND AWARD-WINNING KITCHEN
In the master bathroom, Cirrus pops against the dark cabinetry, bringing a bright, clean feel to the space. Hints of gray in Cirrus are accented by the dark hexagonal floors. The juxtaposition of the wood grain drawers and matte stone tile is softened and gently tied together with the airy countertop.
The bathroom effortlessly combines sleek contemporary design with warm, inviting textures and colors to create a relaxed, serene environment.
In the kitchen, the clean white countertop streaked with subtle gray brings together cheerful cabinetry and stainless steel appliances with dark wood floors and a butcher block island. The solid surface material ties the modern aesthetic with cottage details, creating a fresh, light atmosphere. Chosen from over 80 entries, the house won Best Kitchen in the $450,000-$500,000 price range during the Home Builders Association's Parade of Homes.
"This is a huge honor," Timmer said. "I think our ability to blend different styles really set us apart, and that wouldn't have been possible without Viatera."
HIGH FUNCTION AT THE RIGHT PRICE
"From bathrooms to kitchens, I use quartz in almost every space I design because it's so durable," Timmer said. "Viatera® is the best solid surface quartz product."
VIATERA SOLID SURFACE PRODUCTS OFFER A RANGE OF BENEFITS:
•Made of 93 percent quartz, Viatera solid surface material is stronger than most natural stone and does not scratch easily.
•Because it is a naturally seamless and nonporous surface, Viatera is highly resistant to bacteria and mold.
•Viatera is a low-maintenance countertop option that does not require sealant, leading to lower lifetime cost than natural stone.
•A great value at a lower price, Viatera is an affordable luxury for any home.
"With Viatera, I get the quality I expect in a range of color and pattern options perfect for all of my projects," Timmer said.
A DESIGNER FAVORITE
"Viatera has been my number one go-to for over three years," Timmer said. "There isn't another company that offers anything close to the strength, durability and style of Viatera, all at a great price point."
Timmer will continue to use Viatera in her projects with Kenowa Builders.
"I can't think of a better product in terms of style or quality," Timmer said. "It's the best of both worlds."
