New Front Door
An oldie but goodie. Adding a new front door can add significant curb appeal and increase the value of your home. When deciding on a new front door it is important to keep within the style of the house but to also add edge and flare – think a large red door on a white façade.
Formal Dining Rooms
The return of the family dinner. The American dining room has been phased out over the years in favor of a more open-plan kitchen. This trend is reversing. As Americans are starting to cook and entertain more often, the need for a dining room is ever present. The living room is too casual; plus nobody likes talking over a loud television. Renovating or adding a formal dining room can create an inviting and beautiful area in your house for guests and your family.
Kitchens and Metals and Woods
Introducing mixed material kitchens. Monochromatic colors are a vestige of the past as are strictly single material kitchen schemes. Granite countertops with stainless steel appliances are overdone. Try a modern look with wood countertops with pewter or bronze appliances – or for something else completely try painting your refrigerator doors for an affordable and easy way to bring new life to your kitchen.
Simply cozy. After years of being excluded from contemporary American design the fireplace is making a comeback. Simple stone or brick fireplaces can add a rustic touch to your living or dining room. Modern innovation has erased the old worry that having a fireplace in colder climates can increase heating costs during the winter.
Statement Bathroom Mirrors
Goodbye minimalist design. Bathrooms in the 2000’s commonly featured stripped down, stainless steel furnishings and stark, bold colors. Not today. For a noticeable bathroom upgrade, replace your small, round mirror with one much larger – preferably with an elegantly baroque frame. A new mirror is an easy way to add a twist to your style and make your bathroom dynamic.
