2016 Home Design Trends

If you’re building or remodeling a house this year you may be curious to know what some of the hottest trends in the housing industry are. Check our list to see what you can incorporate in your new home or remodel.

Mixed Material Kitchens

Gone are the days of “matchy-matchy”. Combining different materials, textures, and colors is what 2016 is all about. Think about mixing cabinets, hardware, countertops and colors to create texture and visual interest.

Black Stainless Steel Appliances

LG, Kitchenaid, and Samsung all carry variations of black stainless steel appliance which tend to be a warmer tone of stainless steel. One thing to note is that none of these manufactures’ appliances match the others.

Bold Powder Room Wall Coverings

This isn’t a new trend; however, the options for material to use have increased from everything to wallpaper prints and textures to tile and horizontal wood paneling.

Stylish Bathroom Mirrors

Say goodbye to the boring medicine cabinet mirror and hello to a more customized, framed mirror that adds some style to the space.

Linear Fireplaces

Linear fireplaces offer a contemporary design aesthetic with a streamlined profile that help to keep visibility of barrier screens to a minimum.

Horizontal Orientation Cabinetry

Deep, horizontal kitchen and bathroom cabinets aren’t necessarily new, but they’re becoming more affordable and customizable. With wide cabinets that have a width of 36 inches, there is less need to stack cabinets vertically toward the ceiling, making it easier to reach items.

Floating shelves

Whether used in the kitchen, bar or on the sides of a fireplace, floating shelves help to break up monotony of standard cabinets and serve as a place to display vases and decorative dishes. Floating shelves are also a great way to increase a sense of space and light.
