Is 2015 the year for you? Is this really the year that you are going to do that home improvement project that you have been talking about for years? If so, GREAT! You are not alone. Home improvements and remodeling are at an all-time high. More people are opting for remodeling and repair than for trading in their home for another. If you are wondering what everyone else is doing, here are a few of the more popular home remodeling trends for 2015.
Kitchen cabinet remodel. Kitchen cabinets can have a rough life. They are constantly being opened and closed and tend to be a sponge for all dirt and spilled and splattered liquids in the kitchen. Just like anything in our society, popular door cabinet styles change with the times. Simple shaker or mission style doors are the current choices of many homeowners. Many people are choosing cabinets that show the natural character of the wood, with cabinets made of such woods as Hickory or Knotty Pine. If purchasing new cabinets are not in your budget or you just want to freshen up your kitchen cabinets, refinishing them is always a possibility. Cleaning and re-staining them will give your kitchen a fresh new feel without the price tag of new cabinets.
Replacing kitchen countertop. The kitchen is usually the heartbeat and meeting place of a home. The countertops inadvertently become cutting boards (ouch), desks for homework, hot plates and much more. This kind of ‘love’ over the years can leave them tattered, sagging and worn. Replacing them with a new countertop will revive the life of your kitchen. Granite and stone countertops are now in demand with homeowners. There are also many composite type countertops that are available that have the look and feel of a true stone counter top but are not as pricey or heavy. Of course, you can still use a laminated countertop if stone, granite or a composite top are not in your budget and still improve your kitchen appeal.
Replacing your windows. Windows are a crucial part of your home. From your energy efficiency to the curb appeal, windows impact your home in a big way. If your home has old, worn, leaky or damaged windows then not only are they unattractive, they are allowing unwanted air exchange between your home and the outdoors. Replacing your windows with new, vinyl replacement windows is a great way to improve your home this year. The vinyl replacement windows at Window Nation are custom made to fit your existing openings, so they will fit perfectly! No leaks! And with many colors and styles to choose from you are sure to find one that is perfect for you.
2015 is the year. The year for home improvements. Rejuvenate the life in your home by replacing your windows with new, vinyl replacement windows or restore your kitchen by updating its cabinets and counter tops. There are few investments that we make in our lives as important as our homes. Let 2015 BE YOUR year to further that investment.
