oklahoma: Things are looking up for ceiling design - 10/25/17 12:40 PM
A room is often defined by the color on the walls, the flooring, and the furnishings. Homeowners often ignore one other surface that could add significant design detail to the room.
The ceiling.
While ceilings used to be standard white, the ceiling design options, trends, and creativity have expanded our view of this “fifth wall”. The ceiling has become more than just the top dimension of the room.
At Ideal Homes, we’re often asked, “what’s the standard ceiling height?” The answer is 8 feet, but you can go up from there on your first floor (8-foot is still standard on the upper floors). Most … (0 comments)

oklahoma: Why basements don’t make sense in Oklahoma homes - 10/05/17 07:32 AM
A basement can be a welcome space in a home. The downstairs room gives you storage and extra living space. In some areas of the country, a basement is also a safe place to escape a storm or retreat from the heat. But if you live in Oklahoma, a basement isn’t a viable option.
Why Not?
Tornadoes are not uncommon in Oklahoma. Between March and August of this year, 74 tornadoes hit Oklahoma. While they’re rarely devastating as the 2013 tornado, these violent wind funnels still cause damage. When a tornado strikes, the power of the storm can rip off a roof, crush … (2 comments)
