The Heart of Your Home!

by | Jan 23, 2017 | Home & Garden

 Your kitchen has always been considered the heart of the home so, of course, you want your kitchen to look it’s best. If you are in the market to sell your home then having a remodeled kitchen or bathroom can increase your home’s value.  A kitchen remodel is the singular most cost-effective room remodel and the ROI(return on investment) is usually more than 100 percent. The real estate market is on the upswing and a full or partial kitchen remodel can help you sell your home quickly and for more money.
Here are some kitchen trends to watch for in 2017. Some, you may have heard of and some you may not have heard of. A tuxedo kitchen is one such example. This style is usually white on the top and a darker color such as black or dark grey on the bottom of the kitchen.
Another trend is wood paneling. Don’t assume it is the 1970’s wood paneling!  Today’s wood paneling is really rich in color and texture and is not similar to the 1970’s.  The trend over the next several years will be towards lighter colors of wood, even white. Paneling will be used on walls, ceilings and backsplashes.
Hidden appliances are those that are made to look as if they are cabinets with the same design in doors and hardware. Nearly every appliance but the stove can be hidden and disguised as cabinetry. Your kitchen will have a clean and uncluttered look and is great for families who spend a lot of time in their kitchen and are looking for a cozier more relaxed feel.
Tiles are trending and eclectic patterned tiles are in. Patterned tiles can be made to fit every room, use and budget. Be inspired to go for tiles in a kitchen backsplash or even do an entire bathroom.
Automating your home is a big trend and we will continue to see more of these automation trends. Many of them will allow you to run your home from your smartphone or other device. The kitchen of the future is here today from sensor-activated lights to meat thermometers that alert your smartphone when dinner is done!
Whether you are staying put or selling, remodeling is a great investment.
