Home Improvement Trends for 2016

Interior designers are often asked what are the latest interior design and home improvement trends. If you’re considering remodeling, about to break ground on a new home, or simply curious about the latest in home improvement and designs, here’s what you need to be aware of.

 

Contemporary Looks With No Handles

 

According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association’s style report, many interior designers agree there is a clear move toward simplicity with a cleaner, more contemporary design.

 

Manufacturers are producing handle less fixtures, appliances, cabinets, and other kitchenette features to create clean looking appliances as those designs have become increasingly popular. Cabinets can be opened by touching them or using a handheld remote. Many kitchen faucets still contain handles, but are also including an optional sensor to turn on automatically with the wave of a hand.

 

Interior Designs Out Of Comfort

 

Transitional styles are also becoming increasingly popular with homeowners as home improvements are completed with comfort in mind. Heated floors and towel racks in the bathrooms can make a world of difference in the winter. You can also make the living room more comfy by adding ottomans and blankets.

 

Health Is the Primary Driver for Redesigns

 

Houzz.com, the leading platform for home remodeling and design, reports almost half of remodels are completed to prevent health issues. Whether it's improving the air circulation and filtration in the home, installing vent fans in crawl spaces to reduce the spread of mold and mildew, or installing a dishwasher that automatically opens partially after cleaning the plates to discourage bacteria before putting them away, health is the leading factor in many home improvement projects.

 

Home improvements can be both stylistic and functional, just as Doris Younger factors into all of her interior design services. If you're considering adding home improvements in the Dallas or Rockwall area of Texas, we'd love to work with you to design spaces you can enjoy for many years to come. Contact Doris Younger today at (972)979-2003 for an experienced , reliable interior designer that can work with you to create your dream home.

I don’t know for sure but if not, I’m sure at the very least they contain seeds of truth in the development of traditional furniture styles and, as I said, just for fun……. Read More fun stories here.
