Our Home Renovation Contractors Design With Style
Part of the reason remodeling is so overwhelming for many homeowners is that they don’t know what’s available to them when it comes to design and material selections. If you’re thinking of updating your home but are short on inspiration, here are some of the current trends our home renovation contractors are incorporating into remodels again and again.
Butcher Block Countertops
Butcher block is a rustic and affordable countertop material that can be made from nearly any wood. With proper maintenance, butcher block countertops age gracefully and add wonderful warmth to a kitchen. They also absorb knocks and drops, so there is less clatter from dishes and glassware.
Shiplap cladding has covered home exteriors for centuries, and the element has found new life on the interior of homes. It can be used anywhere from the hallway to the stairs to the kitchen, and adds wonderful visual interest and a feeling of “farmhouse” warmth and coziness to dull walls. It can also be used to accent certain areas of a room, such as around a fireplace or above the bed.
Similar to features such as shiplap, stained wood ceilings make for a warm welcome to a home. As an alternative to ceilings that are painted white, this design detail adds texture and a more rustic feel to rooms. The ceiling can consist of only tongue-in-groove boards, or boards with beams that are also stained.
Steel & Wood Beam Installation
Add unique flair to any space with the installation of steel or wood beams. This popular element can work with many design styles. Wood beams are particularly effective in rustic, farmhouse and traditional designs, while metal beams complement more modern styles.
Updated Fireplace Surrounds
Fireplaces have become a popular focal point in homes of every style. There are so many ways to give a traditional fireplace more pizzazz. You can add subtle interest with white tile, or make a big statement with a patterned mosaic surround. Pair the surround with natural wood or concrete for a clean, updated look.
Decades ago, it was a trend to create many small, intimate spaces within a home. Today, most homeowners prefer an open layout with clean sight lines between living areas. The kitchen, dining room and family room are the most popular rooms to open up or conjoin. Fort Bend Builders will help you determine how to best open up your home, including load-bearing wall removal.
