We may be through with January but there’s still plenty of time to carve out room for a New Year’s Resolution. And if you’re a DIY-nut who loves a good home improvement job, then a home remodeling goal is just the resolution you’re looking for.
Whether you’re looking for a fresh update through kitchen remodeling or want to make your master bathroom a bit more luxurious, it’s important to make sure all of your hard work isn’t for naught. What do we mean exactly? Well, the design you have in your head at this moment may be the end-all-be-all for you, but if it’s a stylistic choice that’s outdated, your home’s value will suffer.
That’s why it’s important to stay ahead-of-the-curve when it comes to 2015 home remodeling trends.
We’ve decided to outline some important trends to be mindful of when planning out your home remodeling project this year. Take a look and then visit us on Facebook and let us know what you think!
Interior Design Trends
When it comes to the overall look of your home, design experts agree that the cold, modern look of years before is being gradually replaced by a warm and homey setting. Remodeling trends are moving towards driftwood and natural, unfinished wood will be more common than polished, gleaming wood designs.
Another trend to look out for this year is ceiling decoration, which is quickly becoming the new accent wall in terms of home design. People are exploring molding, custom color lighting, and painting ceilings the same color as the walls. Some homeowners are even opting for wallpaper, specialty finishes, or wood treatments for their ceilings.
Kitchen Remodeling Trends
When it comes to color for kitchens, “Vivid” is the name of the game. Think bright tiles instead of traditional white. Houzz predicts that kitchen designs will see Middle Eastern influences, specifically Moroccan themes.
In terms of structure, open shelving is being seen more and more since homeowners and designers are learning that open and airy feel creates more room for the kitchen – and its inhabitants – to breathe. Open shelving also makes the kitchen just feel plain bigger than it actually is.
Some other quick kitchen remodeling trends to keep in mind:
- Solid-surface countertops over laminate
- Touchless faucets
- Sustainable, energy-saving kitchen appliances, as well as sustainable lighting. It’s all about going green!
Bathroom Remodeling Trends
Believe it or not, freestanding tubs are making a big splash in 2015. Bathroom remodeling trends are making a push toward contemporary style – more like a spa than a place to just brush your teeth. Freestanding bathtubs are functional and contain a vintage charm or a modern look depending on the tub you choose.
In terms of color and design, expect gray color schemes with statement floor tile and larger showers. And, like kitchens, sustainable bathroom appliances that help save water and energy are definitely in.
When it comes to sink area, expect a return to a wall-hung vanity with an undermount sink. It creates a modern look that makes your floor look bigger, while giving you an easy-to-clean surface area and sink.
