Whether you want to undertake a minor kitchen / bathroom remodel or even an extensive home renovation, here’s what you need to know about the latest trends in home renovation.
Combining a functional kitchen area with a dining room or living room is something that is all the rage right now. In addition to enhancing aesthetic appeal, an open link between your kitchen and the living space will make the cooking process more fun, as you will never feel isolated from your family. While it’s a good idea to tear down kitchen walls, make sure you’re not overlooking the importance of adding smart storage options and attractive flooring, as well as backsplashes.
Finish and color combinations
This primarily indicates a combination of functional and artistic materials for cabinets, countertops, and flooring. The same also applies to colors. For example, neutral colors are now combined with bright patterns to create an eye-pleasing décor and design. Although classic white is an all-time favorite, shades of gray and taupe are also becoming the preferred color options for many home remodeling projects.
A contemporary bathroom is more like a spa setup, with separate or frameless bathtubs, multi-head upgraded freestanding showers, and safety handlebars. The use of striking metallic fixtures with incredible finishes, heated floors, LED lighting and high-quality faucets will complete the look.
Functional outdoor spaces
Most homeowners now realize the potential of having a well-maintained outdoor living room complemented by a beautiful garden and great features like stone fire pits. As well as increasing the resale value and adding to the appearance of the home, it can also be turned into an amazing gathering space with your family and friends.
Reinforcement of the concept: reduce, reuse and recycle
People now largely prefer to build or renovate their home with eco-friendly materials and energy-efficient appliances, thanks to the increased awareness of the importance of sustainable living. There are companies that sell recycled wood and other building materials, which they claim are attractive and durable. Alternatively, you can also choose to recycle materials to use them in a more creative way than to remove or replace them entirely.
