Interior design experts anticipate several exciting trends to dominate the industry in 2017. If your New Year’s Resolution include a kitchen or bathroom remodel in South Holland this year, check out some of the latest trends. |
Organic and Sustainable The organic movement is expected to grow even bigger this year as natural wood and stone continue to be top picks for remodeling materials. Shiny tile and polished wood are beautiful, but rough-hewn and matte textures are easier to maintain and provide interesting visual contrast. Eco-conscious consumers are also looking for sustainable building materials like reclaimed wood, also known as shiplap. Bamboo has become especially popular because it is recyclable and easy to grow.
Material Combinations For those of you who can’t decide between tile or wood, this trend is for you. Experts suggest using tile in high traffic areas like around the sink and in the shower stalls then do the rest of the bathroom in a neutral wood. Grey wood has been very popular the last few months. It goes surprisingly well with white granite and is softer underfoot compared to tile. Both will add to the overall value of your home, but reducing the amount of tile in your remodel will also be easier on your budget.
Modern Meets Traditional Expect to see some non-traditional uses of building materials in remodeling trends this year. In traditional Japanese homes, a wooden tub is not an unusual sight. The Japanese ofuro is a soaking tub and they are usually made of Hinoki wood which gives off an aromatic evergreen scent when used. American designers use fragrant wood species like cedar and teak to recreate this design in modern bathrooms and provide the ultimate in-home spa experience. 2017 will be the year of natural inspiration, organic materials, and sustainability. Go bold and be creative with your bathroom remodel in South Holland.
