2014 Remodeling Trends

 Whether remodeling or getting ready to sell....here's where to put your money!

Home remodeling may have taken a backseat during

the recession, but not anymore. According to a

2013 Hanley Wood survey, remodeling sales were

up 10 percent compared to 2012, and 45 percent

of remodelers surveyed expected another 10 percent

growth in 2014.

Home remodeling is back in again, and with the desire

to improve our homesteads come a bunch of

new and exciting trends we’ll start seeing this year.

Modern Kitchens:

61 percent of remodelers expect

to complete kitchen remodels in 2014, more than any

other room in the house. And, those remodels are expected

to follow a new trend. Not so long ago, remodeled

kitchens had a rustic feel with warm paint colors

and cabinetry, and wrought iron hardware and lighting.

Now, modern is in, with white or gray cabinetry,

simple countertops, glossy finishes and minimalist designs.

Appliances are more likely to be blended into

the design or hidden away from view entirely to give

the kitchen a sleeker appearance.



Updated Bathrooms:




Bathrooms came in second to

the kitchen with 58 percent of remodelers planning to

do bathroom remodels in 2014. As far as style, vintage

bathrooms with wainscoting and claw-foot tubs

won’t be as popular as resort-style bathrooms that feature

amenities such as large walk-in showers with multiple

shower heads, heated floors or towel racks, and

jetted bathtubs. For coloring and style, glass tiles will

be a popular feature as well as neutral and cool colors

like ash gray, light blue and off-white.
