Every year, HGTV gives away a free home. Many have won one of these amazing houses. Most of these houses have great furniture and great features. The layout of these houses are also amazing. So this year, the HGTV smart home is in Raleigh, North Carolina. You can go to the www.hgtv.com/smart site to get a tour of the home. You will be able to view the first floor, the second floor and the basement. The entire grand prize is over $1.2 million.
You can browse throught hundred of pictures. I started with the gourmet kitchen. The kitchen is always the first thing that I look at in a home. There are 30 pictures of thekitchen. It looks like there are 3 ovens stacked one on top of another. That is really nice. Then there is the nice flowered tile as the backsplash. There is an island and the kitchen cabinets are kind of greyish green. That is what it looks like to me but it looks really modern. The chairs around the island are also very modern and wonderful looking. The floors are dark wood. The drop lights above the island is also great. They look like two ostrich eggs. There is a built in coffee maker. All the appliances are stainless steel. The kitchen flows into a kind of study/pantry area. It looks like a room. There is also a touch panel that leads to the garage. The touch panel can be activated using a cell phone. How neat is that? There is even a sitting nook in the mudroom in the pantry. There is even a desk area. The hardware is all satin nickel. That is my favorite. I think that looks very elegant.
The next room that you should look at is the living room. There are 19 pictures of the living room. There is a modern sculpture on a stack of books. This is the sculpture of a human head. There is also a great chandelier. It consist of glass globes. All the lighting in the house can be programmed. This means that the lights can come on and turn off at any time that you want them to come on or turn off. There is a fireplace in the living room. There is also a built-in bookcase. There is also art on the mantel. There are also sofas and chairs scattered around the living room. There are also great rugs. The floors are also made of a dark wood. There is also a great porch outside the living room. There are also great lamps around the living room. There is a staircase in the living room that goes up to the second floor.
You can also go view the dining room at the www.hgtv.com/smart site. There are 17 pictures that show the dining room. There are two wing back chairs at the end of the dining table. The dining room is right off the kitchen. There is also an elegant chandelier above the dining room. The air vent is hidden behind a stylish door. There is a rug under the dining table. The dining room is also next to the front door. There are also some ceramic pieces.
The master bedroom suite is stunning. The floor of the master bedroom is made of dark wood. There are two accent chairs in the sitting area in the master suite. There are also area rugs. There are roman shades that can be operated by remote or smartphone. There are also hanging pendant lights. There are also two large skylights in the master suite. There is also a fireplace. The fireplace is see through and goes through to the other side which is the porch. There is also a TV above the mantel. There is a frame around the TV and it looks more like a mirror than a TV. There is a door that lead to the porch. The dresser is a sideboard. There is a queen bed. The queen bed is flanked by two accent chests. You can adjust the softness or firmness of the mattress. There is also a panic button next to the bed. This is connected to the home security system.
The next thing that you should look at is the master bath. The master bath is huge and really elegant. There is a walk in shower. There is also a bathtub. It is great that there are both. It is very upsetting to me if I enter a master bath and there is only a shower. I do not understand why people think that someone would not want a bathtub. It is nice to take a bath once in a while. I usually take showers but that does not mean that I would not like to soak in a bath tub once in a while. The cabinets are light grey and the counter top is granite. The hardware on the cabinets is vintage brass. There is a TV that is hidden in the mirror. I think that is really cool as it is not visible when you do not turn it on. The toilet is in a closet. The skylight above the tub provided plenty of lighting. The skylight has a shade that can be closed by remote.
I have described just a few of the rooms in the house. There are plenty more rooms to look at and view. If you go to the HGTV Smart Home 2016 site, you will be able to view all of them and even take a quick virtual tour of the house.
