Rochester MN Top Home Remodeling and Design Trends for 2014

If you are a part of the large group of homeowners in Rochester MN planning to remodel your home in the year 2014, there are many new designs trending. Homeowners are most interested in making strategic improvements to boost functionality, increase efficiency and take advantage of existing space. Whether you are updating your home to increase resale value, or are simply renovating for personal comfort, here are some “in the now” areas to get you started.

Opening up the kitchen-The hottest trend starting us off this year has been removing the walls of the kitchen and the adjoining rooms. This trend appeals mostly to smaller homes, because it instantly creates more space and dramatically changes the look and feel of the house. Having an open floor-plan makes a smaller home appear larger.
2.Installing hardwood flooring in the kitchen-Coinciding with the popularity of open kitchen floor-plans is installing hardwood flooring. Hardwood has trumped ceramic tile immensely in kitchens and is being seen installed continuously throughout the entire open floor-plan. This design compliments an open floor-plan by flowing effortlessly room to room.
3.Customizing the home-Homeowners are making targeted improvements to ensure the home is a good fit for their lifestyle and family size. Families are customizing their spaces to suit their specific needs and wants and are making use of every room, nook, and cranny.
4. Separating the shower and tub-Gone are the days of the shower-tub combo. The latest fad is ditching the tub altogether. Tiled stand up showers are hot!
5.Combining old and new styles-Mixing old and new concepts is a trend that has been around for some time and shows no signs of stopping. In 2014, juxtaposing contemporary products with more rustic ones is quite popular. In today’s trendy home, stainless steel appliances might sit next to a farmhouse sink or an antique chandelier might off set an IKEA bookcase.
6.Going greener-Green home improvements have been trending for years, but re-modelers and designers say homeowners continue to improve the efficiency of their homes — from installing home automation systems that prevent energy waste to replacing outdated light bulbs and shower heads.
