Design Trends: From Tile to Technology

Now that it’s a few months into 2018, we thought it was time to break down our favorite early design trends. In a pop culture landscape as obsessed with design as ours, it’s only natural people love to discuss this part of our industry. Trends are fun and new – who doesn’t like that?

Our job as remodelers is to provide clients with helpful information about which fads will stand the test of time. We want you to feel confident working with us. Resting assured that we know our stuff, and won’t waste your valuable resources on a flash in the design pan! Read on further to discover the design ideas we like – from unique tile patterns to innovate technology.

Patterned Tile
While subway tile remains a force to be reckoned with, playful patterns are growing in popularity. Try mixing in a unique shape, color, or finish when you next update your bathroom or kitchen backsplash.

Bold Color
Soft neutrals and cool greys are finally falling out fashion, and people are ready for some bold color choices! White kitchens, in particular, are being replaced by two-tone cabinets and bright pops of color.

More Mettalics
Mettalics continue to rule when it comes to everything from hardware to light fixtures. Gold and brass remain the most popular, but distressed finishes and matte appliances are also rising as a new spin on the trend.

Open Dining
Boxed away formal dining rooms are a thing of the past. Instead, more and more folks prefer an integrated, open eating area. We love this change because it helps homes flow more freely and is incredibly hosting and family-friendly.

Tech Everywhere
Last but not least, automation technology is on the rise everywhere – from bathrooms to kitchens to lower level lounges. Smart technology can help you save money, stay green, and simplify your day-to-day household chores. Who isn’t a fan of those things?
