Most fashionable Remodeling Trends in 2017

You may have your own justifications for the ‘why’ of your house-remodeling project. Maybe you know 2017 has been a huge year for remodeling, with innovations made in the most unexpected areas. New design inspirations, abstract geometric patterns, automation and so much more have become known in the recent past. Here are the latest remodeling trends for you to consider because your remodeling project has become a reality now.

Home automation

Home automation has been a well-explored concept in recent times, but 2017 has seen innovations ranging from Wi-Fi enabled indoor cameras to complete home controllers. Automated smoke detectors, cameras and temperature control systems have become more sophisticated and more affordable. Home automation is also a major participant in energy saving. Automation of lights and thermostats lower energy bills too.

Vanity conversions

Remodeling with reclaimed materials, especially wood, can be very exciting, for example making perfect bathroom vanities for your house.  You can convert your reclaimed furniture – old file cabinets, chests, cupboards etc. – into unique vanities suited to your fancy.

It is important to measure the dimensions of each piece before re-purposing it for a vanity. It is best to consult a reputed remodeling contractor, who will describe clearly the pros and cons of converting furniture into vanity pieces, options, designs, costs, etc.

Fantastic laundry room

Homeowners in general never pay much attention to the laundry room. Not before 2017 at least, the laundry room was associated with awe-inspiring designs and colors. Homeowners, no doubt spend a lot of time doing laundry, but rarely do they think of making the laundry room appear fantastic? New lighting methods, smarter storage and imaginative use of the laundry room space are all well explored this year.

Counter-depth fridges

Refrigerators have become a lot bigger over the years. This is good for storing food but bad for space efficiency in the kitchen. Counter-depth fridges are a better alternative for kitchens that are short on space. They free up space and give a sleek look. These refrigerators, although not very energy efficient, are widely in use this year.

Most refrigerators are 28 inches deep. They may protrude a bit outside, but with proper remodeling, these refrigerators will look classy. There are several types of counter-depth refrigerators: the French door type, the bottom-freezer type and side-by-side type. Each type has its own benefits. Companies have improved their technology and made these refrigerators more user friendly and energy efficient.

Apart from these new trends, there are a few more, which missed the cut in being ‘the most explored remodeling trends’. They include innovations in mudrooms, color combinations, geometric patterns, garage makeover, entrance upgrades, indoor greenery, words on your walls, outdoor type showers and so on.

Now that you have a snapshot of hot remodeling trends in 2017, you can contact your experienced remodeling contractor for specifics and options that suit your house best. You can follow these trends or think of creating your own blend that people will be reading about soon as trendy!
