Are you ready to remodel a part of your home? You may have the room picked out, but have you thought about everything that will go in it? As professional home remodelers, we know that some materials are popular for a reason, because they are wise investments and they look beautiful. Here are nine classics that will stay in style long after your home remodel project.
#1 Hardwood flooring
Hardwood flooring is a timeless addition to any home. These floors look amazing and they are very durable. There are also a variety of styles, colors, and types to choose from. Hardwood floors are expensive for this reason, but they are extremely worth the price.
#2 Neutral finishes
You might want to add your own unique style (like your favorite color) to your home, but it might not be the best investment. Neutral finishes (like white, beige, and browns) will always stay in style and they match a lot of things. White marble counter tops in the bathroom, or white cabinets in the kitchen are very popular finishes.
#3 Simple finishes
Consider simple finishes for your next remodeling project. Simple finishes make your room look sharp and neat. Who doesn’t like that type of design?!
Marble is always a good idea for your home remodeling projects. Marble is extremely durable and gorgeous, which makes it ideal for kitchens, bathrooms, and bars; marble has a fantastic return on investment.
#5 White cabinets
As mentioned above, white cabinets are a staple in kitchen design. Any color will match your white cabinets. White kitchen cabinets create that “clean and tidy” style that people want to have in their kitchen.
Backsplashes (when executed properly) can upgrade the look of your kitchen. This is where our neutral finish tip comes in again. Aim for a neutral backsplash for the best results.
#7 Stainless steel
This isn’t really a remodeling project, but it’s always a wise investment. Stainless steel’s sleek style matches everything.
#8 Energy efficient windows
This isn’t the coolest remodeling project, but if you’re remodeling a room, consider getting new windows. Old windows can bring down the value of any newly remodeled room. Energy efficient windows will save you money in the long run.
Everyone one loves decks! Decks offer a return on investment of about 80%. This gives the home more space and allows you to enjoy your yard. Imagine grilling out or reading a book on your brand new deck.
#10 Fixtures and hardware
If you have outdated fixtures in your home, consider replacing them. New cabinet handles or faucets can completely change the look of the room. Adding a new light or switch plates are simple projects that greatly improve the look of your home.
We hope at least one of these finishes will be featured in your next home remodel. Have something you think should be added to the list? Let us know!
