Remodeling Projects For Your Home In 2017

remodeling projects for 2017

Do you have a New Year’s resolution? No matter what your long-term or short-term goals are for 2017, one thing is for certain: nothing gives you that “fresh start” feeling like a newly remodeled home. Based on home renovations and designs that have gained popularity in 2016, here are some remodeling trends that are here to stay.

1. Mix Modern & Artisan Goods
Newer is not always better. A huge design trend in 2017 is the combination of old and new through eclectic décor. Wherever you may shop, be inspired by local finds. Interior design guru Nate Berkus persistently encourages shoppers to buy locally made and globally crafted goods. Don’t be afraid to mix mass produced goods with vintage and artisanal items.

2. Embrace Natural Minerals
It’s all about the texture of items in their natural state, and that’s what consumers crave because it exudes that feeling of authenticity and attractive imperfection. Throughout 2017, you’ll see more and more natural minerals that are incorporated into a room’s layout. These can range from accents like pyrite made bowls to large chunks of quartz.

3. Adopt Sustainability
Over the past year, there has been increasing popularity of sustainability in homes. More and more consumers are adopting the “Do It Yourself” way of life in an effort to make the most out of what’s in reach. To reflect this, consider recycling, repurposing, and reinventing different ways to manipulate and creatively reuse decorative items in your home.

4. Softer Color Palette
Get ready to see a huge popularity in soft colors this year. Jeanette Holmes, designer with Miller Homes, suggests using restful palettes that embrace shades of blue, green, purple, mushroom and pink throughout your home. According to a recent article in Furniture World magazine, you should expect an overall softening of the color palette.

5. Brass Accents
Most notably in the kitchen on focal lighting and hardware, brass is predicted to become one of the major finishes, as reported by a study in House Beautiful. Old brass that looks more worn will continue to gain popularity in 2017.
