Home Improvement Trends

 

Consider an Open Floor Plan

This trend has been emerging for years now, and more and more home buyers look for open concept floor plans during the home buying process. Even if the home does not feature the open look, many buyers are checking which walls are load bearing and can potentially be knocked down to achieve it.

An open floor plan has so many advantages that make cooking, dining, and gathering spots more flexible and cozy, creating the feeling of a more spacious place.

In addition, it allows more light into the home, so it brightens the area up and makes it look cheerier.

 

It is All About the Lighting

During the day, everyone loves to have natural light in their homes. Larger windows that allow the light in as well as leverage the view of the outdoors are super trendy at the moment.

You will be amazed by the difference when replacing your older windows with some modern ones. The newest windows are larger, more energy efficient, and can keep indoor temperatures at a comfortable level.

For the evenings, lighting possibilities are practically endless. You can choose from rustic/farmhouse to contemporary and modern lighting options. As a side tip, it is good to know that the newer lights are way more efficient and longer lasting than the halogen or fluorescent bulbs of the past.

 

Kitchens Can Make the Difference

Kitchen remodeling can open the space, perhaps incorporating lonely dining rooms, and feature recharging stations, recycling centers, and large pantries.

Double sinks add value by functioning as dual prep islands with lots of space and pull-out drawers.

Moreover, sleek quartz or granite countertops are super attractive and can serve as a focal point for your entire kitchen. They have long durability and require a minimal amount of maintenance.

Kitchens can be a crucial part of your home improvement so don’t neglect the process. Instead, check our useful remodeling tips and turn this beloved place into a real masterpiece.

 

Use Trendy Colors

White and gray are still the most popular wall colors, but dark colors are making their way to the latest trends.

Light colors dominate wall pallets as they are pretty neutral and make the decoration process easier. Besides that, gray tends to pair well with the most popular hardwood floors.

Navy on the other hand, is also a cool color to be combined with gray or white. It is a perfect accent color, suitable not only for walls, but for pillows, accent chairs, and accent walls. It’s a great way to add some color to the room, without making it too dark.

A great way to renovate a room every few years is to simply change the color of one wall and pair with fresh floor rugs and accents.

 

Add a Tankless Water Heater

In a modern home with large-capacity washing machines, expansive showers, and maybe even more than one dishwasher, the traditional water heater with a storage tank may not be large enough to keep up with the demand. Don’t worry there is a simple solution – a tankless water heater!

Unlike traditional water heaters, tankless ones can provide water at the rate it’s needed, enabling homeowners to keep their costs in check.

They’re also rather small compared to the current models on the market, which makes them a great option for homes with limited space.

 

Make it Smart

We are living in a time when technology is becoming an inseparable part of our homes. So, if you want to improve your place, consider adding some smart gadgets and replacing furnishing with newer smart models.

The newest refrigerators can alert you when grocery items are running low, coffee makers can be programmed to have your coffee brewed and ready when you wake up, and your smartphone can control lighting and heating systems throughout the day.

Making your home smart can significantly increase its value, so we highly recommend it.
