A Look at 2015 Home Remodeling Trends

With a new year just around the corner, it is a great time to start thinking of a few home remodeling projects to give your home an exciting new look. Before you even hire a home contractor, you may want to have some design ideas in mind. If you are not quite sure where to start, here are several home remodeling trends and predictions for 2015. Let’s get started.

A Modern and Low Maintenance Kitchen

Renovation contractors are noticing that more and more families are opting for kitchens accented by sophisticated colors, luxury vinyl tiles, and warm fixtures. Shades of gray, black, and white are becoming more common, whether on the walls or the cabinets. Vinyl tile is replacing granite and ceramic because it looks just as good, is less expensive, and is easy to maintain. Shockingly, more people are forgoing stainless steel for warm metals, such as bronze, satin nickel, or brass. Overall, you can expect kitchens in 2015 to feature simple cabinetry with clean lines, appliances that blend in seamlessly, warm fixtures, and an uncluttered appearance.

Master Bathrooms That Double as a Refuge After a Long Day

This is a trend that has become increasingly popular in the last few years. Homeowners desire luxury, spa like master bathrooms that include separate tile walk-in showers and spa tubs (if they do not go without a bathtub altogether), double vanities with high tech faucets, fixtures in interesting colors and finishes (such as coppery or bronze metals), LED lighting, and heated tile floors. Home contractors are also noticing that families are leaning toward water saving toilets that are both cost and energy efficient.

Indoor/ Outdoor Living Space

More people are choosing to add screened in porches that give them the ability to experience the beautiful outdoors without exposure to insects and the elements. This also provides a great space for entertaining. While some homeowners choose to simply screen in their existing porch without many other changes, others go so far as to add fireplaces and have engineered wood flooring installed.

Wide Open Spaces

Over the past decade open floor plans have become very popular, a trend that is sure to continue through 2015. Renovation contractors expect to stay busy knocking down walls to create roomier spaces that provide an open feel. Families, in particular, are gravitating toward this option because it makes it easier for parents to watch their children while getting other stuff done.

A Healthy Environment that is Energy Efficient

Many people are choosing to remodel in an effort to prevent potential health complications. For example, better air filtration systems, no-formaldehyde cabinets, and non-offgassing finishes are popular choices. Of course, energy efficiency is also important to many homeowners. This includes the replacement of old windows with new windows that can save you up to $500 a year in heating and cooling costs. Adding energy efficient insulation, opting to install programmable thermostats, and putting in low flow toilets and faucets are just a few examples of remodeling projects that are sure to be trendy in 2015.
