Renovation Trends of 2016

If you are looking around your home and you feel that it is time for a change, renovations can transform your home into the house that you have always envisioned. A renovation can breathe new life into your home and it can also increase the value of your home if you decide to resell. If you are unsure about where you would want to start on your renovations, here are some popular renovation trends for 2016.

Outdoor Renovation Trends

If you feel like it is time to transform your backyard into a comfortable place for entertaining, now is the time to start planning in order to have the perfect entertaining area in time for summer. You can renovate your existing backyard by updating or creating a new patio. Paver stones are a popular option for creating new patios, since the stones are easy to remove and replace if they are damaged, plus they are designed to better withstand the outdoor elements as opposed to concrete. Another popular trend with outdoor spaces is making them enclosed and contained, while also bringing some of the creature comforts of the indoors outside. Create your own enclosed patio, sunroom or entertaining space you can utilize no matter what the weather. Install a fireplace and some ceiling fans to maintain perfect climate control in this fun new entertaining area. Select furniture for your outdoor space that is just as comfortable and inviting as you would have inside your home.

Kitchen Trends

2016 is seeing a change in kitchen trends. While most modern kitchens featured dark granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, this year has focused more on neutral and natural tones. Another trend is mixing glass and metal for things such as lighting fixtures, tiles, sinks, and appliances to create a classic and retro vibe. If you are stuck in a confining kitchen, another popular trend is to remove walls to create a larger kitchen. This open floor plan allows you to entertain your guests while you are putting the finishing touches on appetizers or mixing up some delicious cocktails.

Bathroom Trends

People are personalizing their bathrooms into places of relaxation – a retreat to temporarily escape from their daily problems. The trend for 2016 is for people to use more natural materials in their bathroom such as wood and stone. Many recently updated bathrooms are transformed to look like a sauna or a spa, helping to set a relaxing atmosphere. Another trend is using metal and glass tiles to create a smooth and shiny surface.

You don’t have to be stuck in a boring, outdated home any longer. Take advantage of some of these different trends for 2016 to create the home that you have always wanted. Talk to a contractor in your area to get an idea of how much your renovation project will cost. You will want to make sure that if you are doing any expansions that you check with your town’s building codes before you undergo any major project.
