Popular Home Remodeling Trends

1. Open Floor Plans

Open floor plans are a great way to make your home seem larger. They’re desirable to buyers and will maintain their value, and they’ll also accentuate spaces by filling every room with light. It removes many of the barriers traditional home design creates, making spaces feel communal and connected. Depending on the existing layout of your home, there’s a lot of flexibility. Keep in mind that it’s a heavy-duty job, however, and you’ll need a general contractor to assist.

Kitchens are one of the most popular spots for home remodeling projects, and open shelving continues to be the best way to upgrade spaces without a complete overhaul. Open shelving creates space and convenience, and there are seemingly endless design options to try. Consider woods to create a rustic look, or pair metal shelving with stainless steel appliances and natural stone.

3. Gray Tones

If you’re looking for a way to transform your interior design without breaking the bank, crossing over to gray tones is ideal. They can range from subtle to commanding and add a unique backdrop to colorful artwork, furniture, and other design pieces. You can paint the walls or expand the home remodeling project by swapping out your carpeting. Either way, you’ll have a cost-effective project to enhance existing spaces.
