Renovating or remodeling your home is one of the best of ways of not only improving the look and layout of a room in your home, but ultimately increasing its value. Making a decision to remodel your home requires you to engage in a good amount of research and learn about design styles and trends so you can ultimately make your home uniquely yours, whether that means going modern or keeping with a more traditional feel.
When it comes to making improvements to a home, most people start of by remodeling their kitchen or bathroom, and then move onto other areas such as great rooms and master suites. On the outside, replacing windows and doors and doing some landscaping can surprisingly go a long way toward improving the curb appeal of your home.
2016 Home Design and Remodeling Trends
Texture is Back
Yes, texture will clearly make a big difference in 2016, especially when it comes to faux fur. Faux can not only be comfortable to sit on, but it can complement the colors and textures of a natural fiber rug.
Floral patterns can tremendously improve the look and feel of your home, making it more appealing and relaxing. Floral patterns can be incorporated in almost every aspect of the home, including chairs, rugs, walls, and of course decorations.
For many people, floral patterns will remind them of the 1980s when homes looked stylish and comfy. Remember the floral patterns with a black background? The best thing about floral patterns is that you can rarely go wrong, as they can be matched to almost every furniture in your home.
Whether you’re talking about an accent wall or an entire room, dramatic colors can add life to your home. Blue, especially navy blue, has always been a dominating color, which has been a best seller in 2015 and will still be trending in 2016. Navy blue can be complemented with indigo and denim shades, or nearly any other contrasting colors.
Pink has always been associated with warmth and vibrancy. There are various shades of pink that can be incorporated on the furniture fabric, rugs, and wall artwork.
Gold will greatly complement your pink or navy blue rooms, creating an amazing décor in your home. Why not try it out in 2016?
White on White Kitchens
Many of our clients have been opting for white cabinets and walls with a contrasting dark countertop, or even a white marble countertop for those who really like the minimalist look.
Double Island Kitchens
The open floor plan has obviously been a growing trend in recent years. Cooking has also been an upward trend. Now that people are entertaining more than ever in their kitchens, double islands provide the opportunity to have one island for cooking and prepping and one island for serving food and dining.
Next to kitchens, bathrooms are the most remodeled room in the house. With homeowners, especially empty-nesters, opting to splurge on spa-like retreats and oversize master bathrooms, a nice free-standing tub can be a focal point.
Wine Rooms and Bars
Wine rooms, tasting rooms, and wet bars are no longer just for the avid wine collectors, but for anyone who wants to entertain in style. Many Sarasota residents have remodeled with indoor / outdoor bars and lounges.
“Homes are being designed with relaxation in mind, as this year we saw an overall simplification in designs with clearer lines and more natural elements,” according to Stephen C. Moore, senior partner-marketing with BSB Design Inc and 2014 BALA Chairman, and as noted in the interior design blog of Loretta Willis.
Indoor-outdoor living will greatly influence homes in the city, as home owners will be looking to incorporate access to nature in their day to day life. Apart from that, homeowners will see driveways ad garages being replaced with sidewalks, bike paths and community gathering spaces.
2015 is coming to an end, but homeowners will be able to see many designs and ideas that were trending in the year to be trending into 2016 and beyond.
