During the wintertime, especially in our beautiful state, many of us spend more time indoors than outdoors to protect ourselves from those frigid temperatures! As we all learned during the height of the pandemic, the more time you spend inside, the more preoccupied you become ensuring that your indoor space is as cozy as can be—that’s where talk of home renovations comes in.
While there are several different home renovation trends that are all the rage right now, here are a few of our favorites that we think you’ll enjoy:
It’s astounding how much the quality and style of a home’s flooring can affect the look, feel, and value of your home. Especially within the last few years, herringbone patterned flooring has returned to bathrooms, kitchens, and other living spaces across the nation—and for good reason! Designers, homeowners, and home buyers alike love this style of flooring mostly due to its versatility—whether you have a traditional design style or a minimalist design style to your home (or you decide to change your style several times over), herringbone flooring is almost always guaranteed to pull it all together tastefully.
Ditch plain Jane wallpapers and flat finished drywall styles. From creating a faux brick wall to add a vintage, industrial feel to utilizing a faux finish technique to create a Venetian plaster or even marble look, texture is a wildly popular way to add a fresh energy to your home. Not only that, but textured walls are a subtle way to give any living space a bit of understated personality.
The renaissance of marble interiors is here. This beautiful stone is the best way to go if you’d like to infuse sophisticated luxury into your kitchen. Not only is it a chic choice, it’s a very sustainable stone that has the ability to withstand most design trends. Marbles with naturally strong veining add big statement value and create a textural contrast between other polished surfaces, metals, and woods within a kitchen space. We think this stone looks best when used to create a statement sink or kitchen island.
