People usually think of a “trend” as something that will last a short period of time and then go out of fashion. Like the South Beach diet or crocs. But, when you think about classic styles, you have to remember that those were once trends as well. This means that when you think about remodeling, don’t just think about what’s on trend at the moment and what’s classic. Dig deeper and consider things you have loved for years.
For example, let’s say a stand up showers with a separate tub is trendy right now. But, if that’s a style you have loved for years, don’t shun it because it’s trendy. Think about what you will love for years to come. If that thing is a shower which is separate from your tub, then that’s what you should do in your remodel.
With all of that said, we wanted to discuss design trends that only seem to be getting more and more in style as the years go by. Here they are:
In the bathroom
Speaking of stand-alone showers with a separate tub, clawfoot tubs with a separate or overhead shower arrangement are only becoming more popular as time goes on.
Another trend, which we are also seeing in kitchens, is the pretty backsplash. This adds a little color contrast to a utilitarian space and can brighten up a small bathroom or kitchen, making it feel more open. As time goes on we are seeing more and more creative and sometimes very intricate backsplashes.
Throughout your home
Natural accents have always been beautiful and they appear to be growing in popularity. We often get requests for a wood ceiling, stacked stone siding, or a raw wood bar top.
Another fun trend we’ve seen is adding pops of color all throughout the home. Some of this is just decoration, but there are also accent walls, painted doors, and even white walls with bright door and window frames. We don’t think adding color to a dull room is a trend that will go away.
Hidden storage spaces is another trend we think has staying power. From Harry Potter’s room under the stairs to present day built-in storage spaces throughout homes, we are only seeing a higher demand for more places to hide things away. [Natural Accents]
On the floors
Hardwood flooring could be considered a natural accent, but we think it’s a trend in its own right. The floors have staying power - they aren’t going anywhere - and they are beautiful and classic. Also, hardwood floors are relatively easy to clean without buying a lot of expensive cleaners, which makes them pretty fantastic for homeowners.
There are a lot of other home trends, some of which may have staying power and some which probably don’t. Your best bet as a homeowner is to find what you love and have loved for a while. This is the direction you should head in your remodel. If you need some help, contact us today. We’d be happy to go over your needs and help remodel your home so that is perfect for you.
