Could your home use a little freshening up or an update? The snowy winter months are the perfect time to remodel – after all, what else do you have to do until the springtime? The only question is how to spruce up the house. Luckily, we’ve found some of the top trends in remodeling for 2014 and put them in one place! Take a look and see if anything catches your eye. Happy remodeling!
Here are the top remodeling trends for 2014:
- Modern kitchens – Is your kitchen stuck in the past? If so, it’s time to introduce it to 2014’s latest appliances and sleek finishes. For the past few years, kitchens with a more rustic feel were the popular choice, including warm colors and cabinets, wrought iron hardware and soft lighting. Today the modern look is in, complete with white or gray color schemes, simple countertops and minimalist designs. Appliances are designed to blend in or are hidden away entirely for a more sleek, streamlined look.
- Brass accents – Are you picturing the bright, polished brass from the past? If so, think again. Today, brass is more rustic and is dull and hammered. This trend will be featured in kitchen and bathroom fixtures, as well as lighting and door hardware throughout the entire home.
- Updated bathrooms – This is another trend that deviates from the nostalgia of what’s vintage to focus on the modern. Instead of claw-foot tubs, 2014 will feature resort-style bathrooms that have amenities such as large walk-in showers with multiple shower heads, heated floors or towel racks, and jetted bathtubs. Glass tiles will be a popular feature, as well as neutral and cool colors like ash gray, light blue and off-white.
- Bright colors – While the kitchen and bathroom may be getting the minimalist treatment, vibrant colors are all the rage for other rooms of the house. Designers will start featuring vibrant accent walls, main paint colors and flooring throughout bedrooms and main living spaces. According to design authority Pantone, colors such as Green Flash, Lemon Zest, Nectarine and Rouge Red will be popular.
