Three Exciting Trends in NJ Home Improvement
- Color is returning to kitchens
How long has it been since you’ve seen a kitchen which isn’t all-white, all-black, andor covered in stainless steel appliances? Well, color is finally on-trend again! People have clearly gotten sick of monochromatic kitchens, and we’re seeing colorful looks like nothing that’s really been popular since the Midcentury movement.
If you can’t stomach the idea of primaries and pastels in your kitchen, a dark look can still be cool – but look for matte finishes, rather than shiny or mirror finishes. Either way, get ready to change your fixtures too, because…
- Silver plumbing is out, bronze is in
Another major shakeup hitting both kitchens and bathrooms is a move away from stainless steel, nickel, or other silvery water fixtures. Instead, alternative metallic colors and materials such as bronze or copper or gold are becoming popular. They stand out against either dark or light rooms and can match with almost anything.
Prefer a more traditional look? As with kitchens, think “dark” and “matte,” such as gunmetal or pewter fixtures.
- Think about knocking down some walls
Open floor plans are all the rage, particularly in smaller homes and condos without a lot of square feet. Removing walls adds more usable space, while also allowing easier movement around the room(s). Instead of walls, try using paint, tiles, carpets, rugs, or furniture to delineate different parts of your living area!
Basically: if you can’t get everyone in the same room, just make the room bigger!
