- Increase the Curb Appeal
When surveying a home for remodeling projects, start with an eye for curb appeal. Is the front door shabby, or dirty, or outdated? Paint and brighten the entry way. Replace a bland front door with an entry-way combination door and side window panels. This not only looks good, but it lets in natural light.
Next, turn to the garage door. Is it old and weathered? Incorporating a new garage door in a remodeling project may reflect the terrific remodeling happening inside the home.
Does your porch need replaced or painted? Are the front steps cracked or buckling? A little fix up on the outside goes a long way toward a great curb appeal.
- Update the Flooring
Remodeling trends start from the bottom up. What is the condition of the carpet and flooring? Instead of replacing carpet, consider wood laminates or tiles. Using tile or wood flooring lends to another trend, a cozy area rug which defines an area.
- Open Up Your Floor Plan
Homeowners are looking for open floor plans. Ask the professionals at Allen Keith about weight-bearing walls. Instead of an addition, perhaps your larger family area or entertainment room will include the opening of an unneeded, smaller bedroom. Open the kitchen to the family room or create a pass through window to make it seem more open.
- Enhance Your Home Office
With more Americans working from home, convenient offices have become not only trendy, but also a necessity. Bedrooms and dens are turning into home offices. They are being walled off in the basements. Popular remodeling projects include cabinetry and credenzas for these offices.
- Remember the Basement for More Living Space
The least expensive way to add extra rooms to a house is through a finished basement. Basements are often used as just storage space. With the assistance of the Allen Keith professionals, a basement can be transformed into a glorious man-cave, a bar and game room, or a private home theater. If the family is growing, basements can be transformed into bedrooms, baths, and in-law suites.
- Make a Wise Use of Space
One of the most popular trends in home remodeling is the smart use of space. No longer will you find empty space under stairs or in attics. Smart homeowners are creating clever uses of every square foot of their living space, including shoe storage under staircases or bookshelves under stairs. Instead of having baseboards in the kitchen, consider storage drawers instead. Every inch of space in a home is a potential nook, storage seating, shelving, and closet storage.
- Turn Your Bathroom into a Spa
We spend an important amount of time in the bathroom. It’s where we groom, primp, and fuss in the mirror. However, bathrooms are converting into private spas. Regardless of space and budget, the simplest of remodeling strategies can turn an ordinary bathroom into a relaxing spa. The addition of spa-like shower heads and lighting upgrades are a basic start in bathroom remodeling.
The addition of vibrant colors, recycled glass, and granite sinks and countertops are important factors in the 2015 bathroom remodeling trends. Bathrooms are becoming more spacious, even to the point of adding remote controlled music or televisions, and in-floor gradient heat. Soaker tubs and multi-head showers are remodeling trends that will continue beyond 2015.
- Give Your Kitchen Bright, Clean Lines
Remodeling trends in the kitchen are multi-faceted. They can include cabinets, flooring, backsplashes, countertops, faucets, and appliances. Kitchens in 2015 are bright, with clean lines. Countertops are durable. Storage space is a must. Islands are multi-tasked, being used as breakfast counters, storage, and prep area. Tiles, especially bright white subway tile, are a popular trend.
