Home Remodeling Trends – Remodeling a home can be an exciting process for a homeowner that wants to give their home a new feel and make it feel more lively. There are many home remodeling trends that have homeowners excited about upgrading certain features and areas of their homes.
One major trend this year is ‘green’ homes. Homeowners are opting to live in a home that is free of toxins and chemicals, which is more suitable for the environment. People are also becoming more energy conscious, making them more eager to switch to energy efficient appliances.
Another home remodeling trends in 2015 is replacing granite counter tops with quartz composite. While granite is very beautiful and is still very popular in demand, quartz composite is finding its way into homeowners kitchens. Quartz composite is composed of 93% quartz. It is also stain resistant, scratch resistant, and is also resistant to most household elements. Because this type of countertop requires very little maintenance or cleaning, more people are opting to choose it over the granite countertop.
Hardwood floors are another home remodeling trend that is in popular demand for this year. Homeowners who have previously had carpet are deciding to switch to hardwood flooring. This is a popular demand because this type of flooring is very durable and has a long lasting finish, and it is much easier to clean than carpet. It also comes in a variety of colors, designs, and textures, giving homeowners a large selection to choose from.
Adding screened porches to homes has been very popular in the past, but is at an all time high in present times. More and more people want to have a room that is outside, but still can feel like their living room. They are adding outdoor living spaces with a fireplace to give their home a new feel.
Showers and bathtubs are another trend that many people are excited about. Homeowners are removing their tubs and replacing them with walk-in showers. In the bathrooms, homeowners will upgrade by adding spa amenities, double vanities, and separate shower and bath areas if they choose to keep their bathtub.
