Build a Life in One of the Best of Charleston, South Carolina’s Suburbs

In Summerville, you’ll find a high quality of life. Being just a short drive to Charleston means you can enjoy a healthy mix of small-town charm, big-city excitement, and everything in between. There are so many options to fulfill whatever lifestyle you like. Take advantage of coastal living by planning a beach trip to one of the nearby options like Isle of Palms, Seabrook Island, or Kiawah Island. For a different outdoor experience, you can enjoy the beautiful scenery in one of the many local parks or trails. Rosebrock Park provides a more leisurely hike versus the adventurous trek at Oakbrook Nature Trail. Then, explore the nightlife in Charleston with a trip to one of its many breweries, or take a walk along The Battery, the famous seawall landmark with views of gorgeous Antebellum homes.

After all of these exciting adventures, relax and fill up on delicious food via Summerville’s amazing restaurant scene. As expected, Southern cuisine is the hallmark of the area. You can enjoy delectable dishes like crab cakes, oyster stew, and seafood boils with classic southern sides like mac and cheese, fried cabbage, and cornbread. One town favorite is Oscar’s. Here you can have a taste of southern favorites like fried green tomatoes or shrimp and grits while enjoying an upscale casual environment. When you want to take it to the next level, the Nexton community boasts a classy dining experience with ribeye steaks and pork belly at Halls Chophouse Nexton.

Of course, there’s more than food and fun to consider when deciding to relocate to a new town.

For starters, Summerville has a strong job market with opportunities in a variety of industries. As the town continues to grow, its major jobs are in the information technology, shipping, and tourism industries. Other options like sales and marketing, automotive, and life sciences are prominent in the area, too. With its close proximity to Charleston, there are plenty of work opportunities to explore in Summerville, making relocation simple.

Another major draw is that Summerville is a highly recommended suburb for raising a family. It boasts top-rated schools and highly walkable neighborhoods with plenty of parks for kids to play in. However, at Nexton, you and your family can grow right within the community with its on-site schools and multitudinous parks.

Kitchen Design Trends for 2020

Kitchen Design Trends for 2020

At Homes By Dickerson, we believe in the power of a really great kitchen, because what could be better than creating something delicious to share with the ones you love? Take a look at the top kitchen design trends that caught our eye and get inspired to design a beautiful gourmet kitchen in The Home of Your Life!



Something Navy: While black and white reigns supreme as the most classic color scheme in home design, modern kitchens are craving a little something different. Is navy the new black? This timeless color reflects elegance, understated luxury, and style like none other and works great for your cabinets.


Pops of color in kitche.

Pops of Personality: Sometimes the simplest of touches make the biggest statements. If you enjoy a neutral-toned aesthetic but want to infuse your personality into your space, use bright pops of color in “unexpected places,” including your appliances and hoods. Of course, a lovely piece of decor for your island is always appreciated. 


Open shelving.

Curated Feel: With the popularity of open shelving, curated pieces in your home are now more in than ever. Display your all-time favorites pieces, from crocks to vases, and watch your kitchen come to life with a cozy, contemporary vibe. This design strategy brings your personality to light and keeps your kitchen timeless.


New Gadgets: In 2020, just about everything you can buy makes life easier and more enjoyable… and fun kitchen tools are no exception. Try a sleek salad chopper for 5-star quality side dishes, an egg timer for breakfast just the way you want it, or an avocado slicer to add delicious flair to breakfast, lunch, and dinner. 


Colored backsplash.

Let There Be Color: If you are attracted to bright colors, don’t let the minimalist trend sway you. Brightly-colored tile backsplashes are now just as trendy in homes as whites and neutral colors and add so much cheer to your space. Play around with matching furniture and items and don’t be afraid to “color outside the lines.”


Kitchen - Plate Rack

Perfectly Plated: You already know that open shelving is having its moment, but did you know that plate racks are coming in hot as well? Whether on your countertop or mounted on a wall, a vintage plate rack is a classic addition that packs contemporary style. Display your beautiful plate ware proudly (and enjoy the convenience).

There’s something uniquely satisfying about introducing a new piece of decor or color into your Homes By Dickerson kitchen. In 2020 and beyond, dust off your interior design skills and get to work on something special for your new space! Cheers to a new year and new beginnings.
