Remodeling your home is an exciting experience. There are many reasons why you would want to remodel your home. Your family situation may have changed and you need to increase space, or heating and cooling costs are hurting your wallet. There are really endless reasons to remodel or renovate.
Some benefits are increasing your home’s value or ROI (Return on Investment). Historically remodeling your kitchen, bathroom, adding a deck or replacing your windows are your best bet on ROI.
With that said, here are some of the hottest trends of this year:
Your kitchen is the center of your home, a place to eat, and have family gatherings. Giving your kitchen a rework can increase your home’s value, as well as create a new atmosphere.
Some trendy ideas in 2017 are breakfast nooks, wood grain designs, and the always appealing white cabinets. Bright colors are also making their presence felt, particularly by way of colored appliances.
Another popular remodeling room is the bathroom. It’s one of the most often used rooms in the household. Popular now are neutral colors – such as whites and gray and tiled floors. The once popular colorful designs have declined in popularity. A simple and clean look with the ideal low maintenance is most popular. Vanity conversations have gained popularity in recent years, so hold onto those old chests of drawers. They allow for smart storage with a vintage type look.
Popular among families with younger children, the mudroom can be a great asset for keeping your home tidy while avoiding clutter throughout the house. Usually found at the most used entrance, the mudroom can serve as a large closet of sorts or a simple transition room. Aside from storage it can also be used as a laundry room and or a pet cleaning station. Ceramic flooring and vinyl wall paper, high gloss paint, or wainscoting for the walls can help with low maintenance. Paired with a bench and/or cubby holes, your mudroom can give your home an upgraded look that is clean and clutter free.
One of the most favorite trends this year is expanding outside living space. Having that spring to summer to fall outdoor gathering area is a great way to enjoy time together with family and friends. Building new or expanding old decks is a great way to create that outdoor venue for homeowners and their guests to enjoy.
Not just limited to decks, patio and stone landscapes are also an attractive option. Tying the area together with furniture, fire pits, grills, and lighting can really make this area the most enticing place on the property.
