Blu Homes Unveils The Lotus Mini Featuring Stikwood
"We’re trying to lower our price per-square-foot with this launch," says Maura McCarthy, one of Blu’s cofounders, "and want to deliver cooler, more personalized homes on a tighter timeframe."
The Lotus Mini starts at $275,000.
Blu’s new miniature models offers more streamlined, flexible spaces meant to have a range of uses, from potential pool houses or extensions meant to densify a lot to a vehicle for a full-on embrace of the tiny home lifestyle. The Lotus line, which includes both a compact 640-square foot mini model and 1,600-square-foot option with an offset floor plan and two bedrooms, were created with a more small footprint and luxurious lifestyle in mind. Both sizes features options that magnify their relatively small layouts, including custom storage systems from California Closets, Murphy beds, full kitchenettes, and a series of sliding doors and decks meant to amplify outdoor space. "Building lots of options into the small footprint is important to us," says McCarthy.

Need a short and sweet fix for style-devoid walls? Wainscoting is a great option! Used for centuries, the framed wall paneling is perfect for covering up minor wall damage that’s already there, or simply protecting the wall from everyday wear and tear. No matter where the wainscoting rises to, either one-third or two-thirds up the wall, it’s a classic way to incorporate personality into a room. While beadboard and square moldings are traditional looks, they aren’t the only way to go. Peel and stick wood is another option that cuts the install time in half, since you don’t have to measure and cut molding into perfect squares then nail it all into the wall. Before you give the look a whirl, check out these winning examples of peel and stick wainscoting.
