Top Remodeling Trends in 2015

As we enjoy the beginning of an exciting new year, now is a good time to look back at some top remodeling styles from the last couple of years. In 2014, we saw things like enlarged kitchens, built-in storage, and freestanding tubs. Let's take a look at a few of the biggest remodeling trends from 2015. 

White & Gray

The ever-popular white kitchen seems to have some competition… Gray is taking over as the new “IT” color of choice. With undertones that can go cool or warm, it’s a stunning new neutral that everyone wants. 

Rectangle Tiles


Large scale rectangular tiles are back on the rise. 12x24 is a popular size selection for bathroom tiles, both in the shower and on the floor. Bonus: Less grout to have to keep clean! 

Freestanding Tublazear

The large soaking tubs are being replaced with freestanding tubs, which are available in a variety of unique materials and styles. Freestanding tubs have been back on the rise in the last few years, so we have a feeling they will be a lasting style. You can go traditional with a classic claw foot or modern with a sleek and simple profile. What's your style?


Subway Tile with Insert

White subway tiles have always been a safe choice when it comes to kitchen backsplashes, but homeowners and designers are mixing it up with inserts in different patterns. The chevron pattern shown creates textural interest while still keeping the color palate cool and neutral. If these trends are any indication for 2016 trends, it is shaping up to be a bright, fresh year! Contact us today to get the design and trends that fit you and your life perfectly.  To see and compare these trends from those of the year before, check out our Top Remodeling Trends in 2014. 

Small Kitchen, Big Transformation – Part 3

Here’s the final video of our Small Kitchen, Big transformation series. The dated kitchen has been replaced with a better layout, more modern finishes, and an overall light and neutral color palette. This kitchen renovation shows that you don’t always need more square footage, just a design that can better utilize the existing space.
