Houzz, the leading platform for home remodeling and design for more than 35 million monthly users, recently presented Drury Design of Glen Ellyn with the Houzz Advice Guru Award. Founded by Gail Drury, CMKBD, in 1987, Drury Design has completed over 1,500 custom home remodeling projects in the Chicago area.

Drury Design was also awarded “Best of Houzz 2016” in the Design category; the studio received Best of Houzz awards in 2015 and 2014. Houzz featured one of Drury Design’s luxury bath remodels in its 2014 Houzz Winter Bath Study report as one of the most popular on the entire site.

“By their nature, kitchen design projects are detail rich,” Gail Drury says. “The questions we answer on Houzz tell us which colors, materials and concepts the community finds most interesting. That’s why we value answering kitchen and bath design questions for the Houzz community.”

Drury Design’s Houzz portfolio features over 67 kitchen and bath design projects.

To answer the multiple questions that come in every day, Drury Design appointed a dedicated team member, Janel Metz, as the studio’s in-house Advice Guru. As comments come in, Janel researches answers and posts replies with insights that reach Houzz members around the world.

With over 1265 comments and counting, Drury Design moderates questions from the Houzz community like this one: How durable is mother of pearl quartzite?

The answer is: Quartzite is a naturally occurring metamorphic rock. Quartzite is harder than granite, so it is quite durable. It withstands heat very well. Quartzite does require maintenance. It must be sealed before use and re-sealed one or two times per year. Without a proper seal, stains can penetrate the stone. Quartzite is beautiful. It just requires a bit of care to stay that way. Hope this helps.

One of Drury Design’s featured projects, a well-dressed traditional kitchen design, has over 260,000 saves and 350 questions. This project was also selected by Pinterest users as the kitchen everyone in America wants.

“Houzz connects our client-focused design™ projects with the world’s most interactive design community. We’d like to thank the Houzz community for their questions, their interest, and their enthusiasm for kitchen and bath design,” said Jim Drury, vice president of Drury Design.
