Bringing 2016 Trends into Your Home

A new year means new beginnings, fresh starts, and different opportunities to experience something different. One of the boldest ways to do so is to remodel any part of your home. Our homes are where we go for sanctuary after a long day of work. It's where we prep our meals, reconnect with our families, and where we can finally rest our minds. Home is where we are the most comfortable, but even the coziest of spaces can feel the wear and tear of years gone by. With the new year still fresh, now is the time to think of trying a new look for your home that re-spark the love you felt with your space for so long.
For the Kitchen...
        White kitchens are still very much in style this year. White has the appearance of being clean, bright, and cheerful. It's also an excellent base to have any color for an accent.
        Stainless steel is becoming far more popular than granite when it comes to a countertop material. Although granite has more color and designs in each slab,  stainless steel countertops are easier to clean and sanitize and make changing accent colors effortless due to it's neutral shade. Pairing both the white cabinets and the stainless steel together creates an elegant, modern vibe to the area.
        When redesigning your kitchen, keep in mind that integrated appliances are at an all time high, and the necessity of a microwave is at an all time low.
         If your kitchen space is large enough, a kitchen island is a must have. Not only does it provide ample counter space to prep meals, but it can also double as a bar to seat guests or children and help them to be involved with cooking.
For the Rest of the Home...
Blue tones paired with grays for a more Scandinavian influence are expected to make a rise in interior design.
Rose Pink is chosen to be the hottest color choice of 2016. Accenting in this color, whether it be in bedding, wall paint, or even a door can add a beautiful pop of color to your home and at the same time create a soft appearance.
Light fixtures are not for just light anymore. They are created with the purpose of being seen and showcased in each room. Walk in showers are replacing the tub and shower combinations, and subway tile is a fail proof way to modernize any space.
