With January gone and spring in sight, have you been thinking about remodelling? Choosing what to do can be difficult but the key is to follow the trends that will offer timeless appeal and a sound investment.
There is an emerging housing trend showing that more people are opting to renovate their existing homes rather than moving into a new one. They love their existing communities, mature neighbourhoods and convenient access to familiar amenities.
Contemporary design is forefront and in high demand. Clients, when planning their re-modelling, want to create a clean, uncluttered serene space. “Keep it simple but beautiful”
A traditional style home can be transitioned to a contemporary feel by changing cabinet doors to flat, and finishings that demonstrate a cleaner look.
Homeowners enjoy their “creature comforts”, that is to say, features that look and feel good. Some examples include air conditioning, 2-sided fireplaces, heated floors and lots of glass to bring in the outdoors.
Should you retain or replace? Customers are considering options such as re-staining existing railings or cabinets. Replacing flooring only where needed is more common today. Brick exteriors are painted to update rather than tearing it down.
