House styles are always changing. It is helpful to stay up to date with design trends to improve your home&#39s value. Here are some tips on design trends for home remodeling.

Open Layouts

Small separate rooms are typically found in older buildings, but are no longer desirable. Open layouts have been desirable for some time now. They are brighter and make a space feel larger. Look into including dramatic elements such as tray ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, or accent pieces like fireplaces.

Enviromental Consciousness

Enviromental consciousness is more popular today than in the past. You may even see some homes particularly noting this in their marketing. There are a few different approaches. You can use energy saving windows and doors, utilize less chemical-intensive materials, recycle older items to inject character to a modern home, and/or opt for sustainable products.

Transition Between Indoor and Outdoor

The outside and inside of your house are no longer treated as separate spaces. Eliminate the separation between them to make your property appear larger and maximize your living space. Make sure that your floor plan includes easy entry to your backyard, especially from the kitchen. Highlight the yard with a nice deck, landscaping, or maybe an outdoor cooking area. Remember to optimize for privacy.

Integration of Technology

Technology toys are abundant in most households. Keep this in mind when planning the layout and features of your home. All rooms should include wall space that accommodates a flat screen TV. Place cable and electrical outlets accordingly. Consider installing surround sound in particular areas.
