Don’t hate us for pointing it out, there are only ten weekends left in 2014. That’s right ten. And while we consider it in poor taste to make New Year’s resolutions before Thanksgiving (more pie please!) it’s not too soon for us to share what our remodeling team projects to be the biggest home décor trends to watch out for next year.
Color: With the economy looking less fragile than it has in recent memory, homeowners are becoming bolder with the color choices of their walls. Popular shades include vibrant yellows, greens and
blues. Color, as opposed to accessories, is taking center stages in rooms. Don’t write white off yet; it’s still being sought out for trim and cabinetry in order to play off the bold colors.
Tile: When it comes to bathroom & kitchen tile, bigger is better! Not only is it more modern, but it also has the ability to make a small space appear larger.
Elaborate Bathrooms: Bathrooms in 2015 will become more embellished. Bathtubs with shower surrounds will be installed less and less and oversized showers and free standing bathtubs will take over. High end tile options are also to be expected.
Countertops: Granite countertops are so last season. We’re noticing an uptick in homeowners opting for high end quartz countertops from companies such as Cambria®. Cambria® countertops do not need repeated sealing and reconditioning like marble & granite counter tops and can be cleaned with warm water and mild soap, making your kitchen a space you’re not afraid to actually cook in. (PS- Cambria® is a Twin Cities family owned company…even more reason to love them!)
Tech Savvy Homes: A recent survey found that more people would rather lose their wallet than their smartphone. Therefore, it shouldn’t be a surprise that more and more homeowners are looking to their cell phone to run their homes. Requests for appliances, garage doors, thermostats, light fixtures, security fixtures and stereo systems that can be operated from a smartphone have become commonplace.
Finishes: We’re obsessed with satin nickel and bronze finishes when it comes to light fixtures and hardware.
3 & 4 Season Porches: These spaces are excellent places to relax and entertain guests. We’re finding that more and more homeowners are seeking them out.
