- 2017’s home design trends are all about creating lush spaces by taking traditional designs and making them modern with unique color, texture and material choices.
- As far as color, experts suggest grays with warm beige undertones for living rooms and kitchens, and bold reds and rich caramels for bedrooms.
- When it comes to remodeling, homeowners are favoring upgrades that make day-to-day life more convenient and luxurious.
As the new year approaches, everyone is looking for ways to improve their lives — whether it’s shedding a few pounds, taking on a new hobby or completely revamping their living space for renewed inspiration.
Take note: The next year’s home trends call for lush colors, plush textures and modernistic takes on traditional designs that make the perfect environment to create a “new you.” (Or for staging a buyer’s new home!)
Although it may not be advisable to incorporate all these trends into a home you’re trying to sell, HomeAdvisor Chief Economist Brad Hunter says Realtors can use the following trends to help buyers imagine how a potential new home could look.
“Ideas for changing color schemes, updating countertops and undertaking more significant remodels can be mentioned while showing the home, depending upon the body language and comments the shopper is making,” said Hunter.
Furthermore, he noted that 2017’s trending renovations, such as “human docking stations” and “shedquarters” — along with upgrades, such as new appliances, countertops and cabinets — can help a home get sold quickly and at a higher price. Score!
