The Ultimate Home Design and Remodeling Trends

If you’re feeling like you’ve outgrown your current home, but love your neighborhood, yard or the charm of your house, you might be the perfect candidate for a home remodel. Moving isn’t the only way to get a larger home or upgrade your living space, after all. You could also remodel what you have — a decision that has become increasingly more popular.

Remodeling lets you choose exactly how everything is created and finished to suit your individual needs and tastes. This is a big contrast to the decision to sell your home and move since your new home won’t be tailored or designed just for you. The hardest part about a whole-home remodel or even a simple kitchen renovation is deciding exactly what you want to accomplish. The options are endless, but it’s all about what is important to you, your household and your lifestyle. You may have some ideas in your mind already, but it’s always inspirational to see what the latest remodeling trends are. We’ve got you covered with a few of the latest design trends you’ll see today. 

Unique Kitchen Colors

A kitchen renovation is one of the most popular projects homeowners do today. From creating more open space to incorporating new appliances and even painting everything a new color, unique kitchens are trendy. 

Mixing and matching different shades of white, black, and grey are becoming even more popular. White cabinetry is still the biggest trend in our area. An increasingly popular trend is homeowners, will offset the color of their kitchen cabinets by integrating a kitchen island with a different cabinet color. Also, using different stains for wood cabinetry can transform your kitchen into a more welcoming space.

Replace Cabinets with Open Shelves

Another popular concept with a kitchen renovation is replacing closed cabinets with open shelves. The good thing with this type of renovation is you can test it out beforehand to see if you like it by removing the cabinet doors. 

This type of renovation instantly makes the room feel brighter and larger. The only thing you’ll have to consider is whether you want the contents currently in your cabinets to be on display. You can always keep a few cabinets intact and just replace a few with open shelves.

Metallic Finishes

Many homes today have the same metallic finishes on their faucets, door handles, lamps, cabinet doors, and more. One of the trends for Connecticut shoreline renovations is mixing different finishes throughout the home. Take a look at the color scheme of any given room and personalize the metal finish accordingly. 

Warm colors tend to go well with copper, brass, or brushed nickel. Cool colors look great with stainless steel or pewter. You can mix-and-match based on your tastes, but various metallic finishes overall are trending in remodeling projects today.

Open Concepts with Natural Lighting

Today’s homeowners desire open space with as much natural light as possible. This may involve installing a new window or two, adding on a sunroom, taking out a wall, and much more. At Fiderio & Sons, we are seeing an increase in skylights to complement the kitchen and bathroom areas.  In so many of our homes, kitchens and bathrooms both require storage and counter space and in trying to accomplish this, we oftentimes sacrifice natural light for storage space. Well, not anymore when you choose to install skylights. Positioned on your roof, skylights increase natural light in your kitchen or bathroom as well as, reduce your electric bill and create more airflow with fresh air. 

Every home has a unique design, but most of them have different opportunities to create more of an open concept. Incorporating more natural light itself can make a space look larger, so it is a design option worth pursuing if space is something you desire.

At Fiderio & Sons, we enjoy working with homeowners who have creative minds and want to make their home unique. We specialize in remodeling homes throughout Connecticut, as well as on the shoreline.

With 39 years of experience in home renovations, our team can help you with any remodel project you’re considering, from a simple bathroom renovation or a new deck to brand-new construction or a whole-home remodel. It all starts with having one of our experts out to your home for an initial, in-person consultation.
