Carnac the magnificent, Johnny Carson

Home Remodeling trends expected for 2015, taken from many sources in the Remodeling industry:

Kitchens:

  • Custom built, sleek, modern style cabinets are popular.
  • Granite is still the favorite for countertops, but Caesarstone, a dense quartz material is gaining in popularity.
  • Backsplashes are being selected that are of a natural material to blend with quartz or granite countertops.
  • The most popular sinks are large single bowl styles in stainless or quartz.

Bathrooms:

Bigger is better! Clients whose homes can accommodate them are having walls moved to create a larger spa-like bath. Some have additions built to achieve the same end. Many are removing tubs and having tiled showers installed.

Flooring:

Pre-finished wood flooring is a popular trend as it offers a durable finish, easy installation (less labor cost) and comes in a variety of colors, designs and textures.

Universal Design:

This trend involves customizing homes to make them more accessible to everyone. Wider doorways, ramps to entries rather than stairs, grab bars, and a many other modifications that homeowners can select which make the home more user-friendly and safer for everyone.

Greener homes:

Paints, carpets, flooring finishes that are free of toxins and installation of more energy efficient appliances. Weather sealing homes; much can be done to make a home “greener”.
