Spring is a popular time for home remodeling projects, and homeowners are choosing practical design schemes to last them years to come with a mix of design trends that keep spaces updated and modern. Below are some of this year’s hottest home design trends, which are nice additions to tried and true design methods like open floor plans and quality hardwood floors. Some of these popular home design trends are incorporating added functionality to the home, which are customized to each room and family. If you need some home design inspiration, here are some of 2017’s most popular home design trends.
More Customized Storage Options
It’s possible to have it all in a home design scheme! This includes an updated design trend with practical aspects like storage space – especially in the kitchen. More homeowners are adding in customized storage cabinets to fit the needs of each home. We can never have enough storage, right? Combining storage and design is practical and on trend.
Lighting as the Focal Point
Lighting has become more of a focus in recent years, leaving behind the belief that one plain overhead lighting fixture will suffice. Lighting choices have become more extensive, so choose a lighting fixture for a main room like the foyer, family room or master bedroom and make it the focal point of the room. There are also more green options to choose from, such as LED lighting fixtures.
Mixing Up Finishes
It’s not so much of a priority to match finishes for hardware or fixtures these days. Rather, homeowners are embracing being able to mix and match to create a cohesive look that works for their space. There are also more finishing options than ever before, so there are plenty of options to work with.
Eliminating Bathtubs for Bigger Shower
Unless you’re a bathtub connoisseur, you might want to jump on the trend of eliminating the bathtub in favor of building a bigger shower. The focus has shifted to a larger, more luxurious shower for some homeowners who don’t use their tub that often.
Open Floor Plan
An open floor plan is hardly a new trend, but it’s still going strong. There’s no denying that a home with an open floor plan feels more spacious, and provides a certain flow to a house across living areas. Pairing an open floor plan with large windows is ideal for achieving an open and airy design aesthetic. There’s a reason it’s been popular for so long.
Statement tile in the bathroom and kitchen provides a playful pop of color or design. Homeowners have been leaning towards more dramatic tiles to use as kitchen backsplashes or bathroom walls. The tile is now used as a focal point rather than a backdrop, and homeowners are experimenting with different colors, textures and shapes.
