Unique Home Design Trend Becoming Popular in the U.S.

| From

LOS ANGELES, CA (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- A unique product from Japan has recently become very popular with new home builders in the United States, says Rain Chains Direct. Called "rain chains," these copper gutter products replace the traditional downspout on a household gutter with a series of copper cups. Although they have been around for hundreds of years in Japan, an sold in U.S. for over five years, the product has only recently been thrust into the public awareness by television shows such as "Monster House" on the Discovery Channel, and featured articles in numerous home design magazines.

(c) Send2PressThe "rain chain" allows the water to cascade from cup to cup as it travels downward to the ground. It is just in the past year that they have suddenly emerged as a serious trend in new home design.

"I have seen a 400% increase in my business this year alone," says Scott Blevins, owner of

Scott says increasingly he is being contacted by builders who want to offer the product as an alternative to traditional gutter downspouts. "People increasingly want an alternative to the traditional gutter downspout, and when they hear about rain chains, they get very excited," says Scott.

Although rain chains are Japanese in origin, they are being used on all kinds of homes, from traditional to contemporary. If this year is any indication of what is to come, then rain chains may just become a common household product.
