Interior Design Trends to Add Value
When it comes to decorating the home, it is beneficial to consider interior design trends, especially those that will bring value to your home. Having value can allow you to have more equity in the home, helping you to earn more when selling or when you want to take out an equity loan. Adding value to the home is always a good idea!
When considering the interior design of your home, invest more into your property by choosing some of the trends below.
Choose a Durable Countertop
When revamping a kitchen, consider a countertop material that is durable as well as beautiful. Quartz countertops are one of the latest design trends that will add value to your home as well as high design. Quartz comes in many colors and patterns, easily customized to your design style. Use white quartz countertops for a bright and clean kitchen, or go with a darker black quartz to make a statement.
Quartz is a durable material, so you do not have to worry about the material scratching or cracking. The material is also stain resistant, as it is not porous. Easily wipe up spills without worrying about the material staining.
Quartz countertops can be added in the kitchen and bathroom, creating a lovely and cohesive look in the home. Use the same material in both spaces to create a streamlined look in the home.
Update Old Cabinets
When you have older cabinets in the home, your space can look dated. The kitchen may appear dark and dingy or older, which makes you not want to spend time in the space. Update your old cabinets by installing new cabinets for a bright and trendy look. Or consider repainting or staining your current cabinets for a fresh look. White cabinets are a great option as well as gray, with both colors standing the test of time and allowing you more freedom with wall colors and decorative accents. Consider going with a two-tone effect, installing white upper cabinets and gray lower cabinets to stay in line with today’s kitchen remodel design trends.
Replace Outdated Flooring
If you live in an older home, replacing outdated flooring can instantly update the space. Older vinyl flooring or rough looking wood flooring can really date your home. One option in today’s home design trends for flooring installation is wide plank wood flooring. This engineered option comes in a variety of wood species, with coloring and patterns to meet any design need. The flooring can easily be installed, creating a brand new look for your home.
Don’t Forget Your Walls
One of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to update the home is with paint or wood paneling. When it comes to painting the home, today’s color trends are neutrals. Varying whites and grays are perfect for creating a neutral palette. Easily find an array of whites and grays that you can use to create a neutral backdrop to your home.
Decorative wood wall paneling is another option that is being integrated into the home. In the past, the design trend was to have an accent wall painted in a bright color. Now, the design trend is to create an accent wall with wood paneling. This creates a rustic look and can easily be customized to your design ideas. Use varying staining techniques to have wood paneling that stands out or go with one color for a cohesive look. The options are endless and you can really let your imagination run wild as you use wood paneling to create an accent wall in your home.
Energy Efficient Appliances
When upgrading the home, it is important to consider energy efficient appliances. Energy Star rated fixtures for the kitchen and bathroom can add savings to your monthly utility bills. You can also add Energy Star rated appliances in the kitchen, which will help to add value to your home. Better energy efficiency is more environmentally friendly, something that today’s home buyers want to see in their home. Add value by installing fixtures and appliances that are better for the environment, using less energy during daily use.
Overall, these ideas can help you to add design trends to your home that will also add value. It is always a good idea to add value to your home, making it easy to build equity and be ready to sell if the time arises.
