On The House: Memory Points
On The House With Mark Molthan: Memory Points
by D-Home’s Loren Means
Mark Molthan lets us in on five great ways to make a lasting impression using “memory points.” What’s a memory point? As defined by Mark, “a memory point is an identifiable feature quality that is unique to you, unique to your home, and unique to your family.”
Make an impact with a splash of color. Emphasis on the splash. “Everything in moderation is good. Anything in excess is wrong. If you eat too many doughnuts you get bad results. Eat one every once in a while, it’s ok.”
The powder bath is the perfect room to go all out. Almost every guest who comes to your home will see this room. With such a small area, you can use high price per square footage materials to create a very high-end feel without blowing your budget.
People associate the quality of a home with the appliances that are in the kitchen. Prioritizing good craftsmanship shows that you didn’t cut corners. Any house can be instantly upgraded with kitchen appliances. Mark’s favorite brands – Sub-Zero and Wolf, of course.
Ceilings and Fireplaces
A lot of people forget about the ceiling, but an interesting ceiling can make a major impact and finish the room. Likewise, a fireplace can be more than just a heat source. Use the opportunity to create an eye-catching focal point.
