With a new year right around the corner I decided to do a little research on the home remodeling trends of 2015. There is a wide range of styles and colors that are popular for this coming year. One thing I did notice is people are feeling a little more confident about spending more money and yet are sticking with the sustainability theme. People are choosing to stay in their home and remodel vs. moving to a new home. They are making more of the space they have and adding additions to their current home, giving them the much needed space.
By adding a 3-4 season room you have increased your living space and added value to your existing home. Adding a bumped out breakfast nook you have increased the size of your kitchen and can add an enlarged room above in a bedroom to expand a bath or closet. Adding only one roof line addition can be an investment to your home and at the same time saving you money. People are seeing that conservative economic tendencies have benefits to the value of their homes.
Choosing a luxury vinyl tile is a way to save money and still have the look of grouted ceramic tiles. People are seeing the luxury vinyl tiles are warmer than ceramic tile, the look as expensive without the cost. Choosing to reface their kitchen cabinets or paint them is another way they are giving their old kitchen a face lift. With oak being the favorite wood and white and gray tones being the favorite new kitchen color for the cabinets. Stainless steel appliances are a thing of the past. People are finding the endless finger prints take too much cleaning time.
Oil rubbed bronze is the hottest ticket item when it comes to faucets, cabinet knobs and bathroom fixtures. If you want a hot new color to paint the walls, go to Bed, Bath and Beyond and check out the towel colors. The department stores are one step ahead of the paint stores in trending colors. Changing these items is an inexpensive way to create that new look for your bath or kitchen.
Reclaimed barn wood on the walls give a rustic feel to a home and is trending with the natural look to a room. Textured walls and multi-purpose walls, which include chalkboard walls, in the kitchen and the children’s rooms are also popular. These touches can change the feel of a room and give it personality with creative a flair.
Whether you have a modern or an antique style in mind you will fit into the coming trends of 2015. There are so many small touches you can add to your home that can change the look of a room or to your whole house.
