February’s Designer of the Month – On Cloud Desi9n – LaGrange, Hinsdale, Western Springs, Lisle & More

Each month, DeSitter recognizes a different interior designer to be their Designer of the Month. These designers have shown amazing talent in their work and have the ability to work very well with customers to help them choose the best interior design for their homes. Most of our designers do not only focus on flooring but a variety of different aspects of one’s home decor.

This month, we have chosen to recognize Bonnie Gonsior from On Cloud Desi9n! Bonnie’s motto is “The heart of my design philosophy is to create an uplifting environment that will leave you on “Cloud 9!” 

A message from Bonnie:

bonnieg

“Hi there, I’m Bonnie! I’m the designer behind On Cloud Desi9n. I have a B.F.A. in Interior Design from Harrington in Chicago and have gained experience in both residential and hospitality design.

On Cloud Desi9n offers the full-scale of interior design services from affordable to high-end; from targeted uplifts to complex remodels. With an innate ability to pull together a multitude of varied details into one harmonious final result, I believe in working hand-in-hand with each client to create a space that is truly their own. “

 

While we have some of the best sales associates and craftsmen for our installations, we cannot give full interior design service as we don’t specialize in things other than flooring. Of course, we can help you select products that will work with your design tastes and with the design items that you show us. However, when our customers need a full service design company, we recommend our designers, often the ones featured as our designers  of the month!

Please feel free to contact Bonnie for any design needs that you may have and let her know DeSitter sent you!

Kitchen Styles/Designs – LaGrange, Hinsdale, Western Springs, Carol Stream, Glen Ellyn, Wheaton & MORE

We all have kitchens…but, we don’t all have the same tastes. This is why homes have such different kitchen styles and designs. Your kitchen is an essential part of your home, if not the most important room of the house, actually. You cook and bake great meals and yummy treats for your family in the kitchen. You probably host little get togethers in there as well and I’m sure you have enjoyed a cup of tea, coffee or hot cocoa while conversing with a loved one. Regardless of what you do in your kitchen, it’s important that it’s not only useful but that you enjoy being in the room and with the design of it.

Traditional vs. Modern – typically the main difference in kitchens today. What is your choice?

Traditional kitchens usually have a lot of wood finishes, lots of classic patterns, pale/muted colors, floral (most of the time), and always has a “homey” feeling to it. Traditional kitchens are often referred to as “cute” in design and comfortable, of course!

Modern kitchens are a bit different. They have smart appliances, are usually very geometric in design, lack so many wood finishes, a lot of cabinet space to hide appliances, utensils, glasses, etc., and has a very tidy and sleek look to it. Modern kitchens are often referred to as “stylish” and “sophisticated.”

Now, just because you like one style more than the other does not necessarily mean that you have to only have aspects from one. It’s YOUR kitchen, do what you want with it! The important thing to always remember is regardless of what your tastes are compared to what is “popular” or “trendy,” it’s your kitchen and should be a reflection of what your personality is!

Spring is around the corner, which means it’s the perfect time to start planning your remodel/redesign projects! Let DeSitter help you! Call or Visit one of our showrooms today to start making your dream room a reality!

Tile & Natural Stone – Finishes/Types – LaGrange, Hinsdale, Western Springs, Lisle & MORE

During our New Year Sale & Inventory Clearance Event, we have a ton of tile we are offering at amazing deals, so we thought we would take the time to explain what types of tile finishes there are.

The most common types of finishes for tile and stone are:
• Acid-washed – shiny with small etched marks. marble and limestone are common acid-washed products
• Flamed – rough, unrefined texture. granite is a common type
• Honed – also called flat, matte or satin finished. very soft look
• Polished – has a glossy shine finish

• Saw-cut refined – similar to matte but not completely honed
• Split-face – rough texture but not as rough as flamed. Slate is commonly done this way
• Tumbled – smooth surface with broken or rounded edges
• Brushed – by brushing the tile, you develop a worn-down look to it

Most common types of tile and natural stone are:
• Granite – igneous stone, very hard and dense, scratch resistant, hundreds of varieties
• Limestone – sedimentary stone, formed by calcite and sediment
• Marble – a type of limestone, metamorphic stone that is usually polished, very easily scratched
• Sandstone – sedimentary stone, rough in texture because of the loose grains of sand
• Slate – metamorphic stone that comes in sheets, composed of quartz and clay
• Manufactured Stone – synthetic stone made from natural stone, very strong, not likely to crack or chip
• Travertine – partially metamorphosed and crystallized limestone that can be honed and filled, similar to marble

• Ceramic Tile – made from clay and has been hardened by heating it, often shiny
• Porcelain Tile – type of ceramic tile that has had more heat applied to it making it more dense with less water absorption

**In case you don’t remember, igneous means it has been formed by the cooling and hardening of molten rock. Sedimentary means it’s been formed by the deposition of material over time. Metamorphic means it’s been formed when other rocks break down from heat and pressure.

December’s Designer of the Month – Glen Ellyn, Carol Stream, Wheaton, Lombard & MORE

interior-design-quote

Interior design is not for everyone and that’s okay! That doesn’t mean you don’t want your home to look beautiful or have a brilliant sense of style and balance, it just means that you may have a little difficulty arranging the contents and selecting styles and colors for fabric, furniture and flooring so that they all flow wonderfully with one another. There’s no shame in that and there’s usually a relatively easy fix as long as you’re willing to put a little trust in someone else and can try and help them understand your personal preference on style and design ideas. Work with a designer!! Interior designers are amazing individuals who work long and hard to help you make your home beautiful and a reflection of your style choices. What may come as a difficult process for you is usually done effortlessly by them because it’s simply what they do!

Tile Gallery Update – LaGrange, Hinsdale, Western Springs

DeSitter’s very own Tile Gallery is getting a fresh and exciting new look! We are currently undergoing some remodeling and can’t wait until it’s 100% completed. Every once in a while it feels good to change up your interior design so that you don’t get bored with the same look all the time.

If your tile is outdated, starting to crack, or looks out of style, then we’re here to help. DeSitter Flooring provides a unique, personal approach to flooring solutions.

Our award winning selection is made up of the top ceramic, glass, and stone file manufacturers. Our showrooms and online store have one of a kind tile you won’t find anywhere else. Our company also provides our own brand name tiles for even more selection.

For over 70 years we’ve specialized in tile flooring, focusing on providing the best possible products and services to our customers.

Whether your looking for bathroom accent tiles, kitchen back-splashes, or stone tile flooring, we have it ready for you. At DeSitter, we understand picking new flooring can be challenging. This is why our expert designers and sales staff will help you find the perfect tile.
