Home Improvement Trends For 2017

Are you thinking about putting your house up for sale during the next peak selling season? If you are it is time to think about inexpensive trends to incorporate into any home improvements project that you may be contemplating. When you put your house on the market the goal is to make it appeal to as many buyers as possible. This can be done by creating a more space that is less personalized while incorporating popular trends.

Homeowners that are considering new appliances will want to consider some of the newer finishes that are now available. Even if you prefer white or black it is imperative that if your plan is to leave the appliances with the home when you sell it that you consider upgrading to matte or stainless steel finishes. Matte appliances are quickly outweighing the popularity of stainless steel but both are still preferred over colored appliances. Matte finishes on appliances are great for families as they hide fingerprints, dirt and smudges that other finishes don't.

Another popular home improvement project that is in style is cork flooring. Cement flooring has had its day in the sun but quickly is being replaced with cushioned flooring options. Cork is popular because it is compliments a variety of home environments. It is offered in a variety of styles and color options.

As flooring trends go, in 2017 shag and pile carpeting will be viewed as outdated with a more popular option being cut and loop carpet. Textures and patterns in carpet will be popular as well. If you decide on using texture and pattern in flooring remember to remain neutral and complimentary on the walls, counter and furniture. This will keep the home from becoming too personalized and keep it neutral for buyers to be able to visualize themselves in the space.

Technology is another popular trend that people are looking to incorporate into home improvement, especially in lighting. Circadian lighting is a popular upgrade that is helping to sell homes to modern day buyers. This type of lighting is in sync with the rhythm of our bodies. The technology communicated with a phone to allow the homeowner to control the temperature settings throughout the day. Homeowners can set the day lighting to be warmer and whiter while fading to an orange glow in the evening for a calmer more relaxed lighting option.

Water quality is another trend that has become more important to new buyers as well. If you are looking to increase the attractiveness of your home a great way to do this is with an improved whole-home water filtration system. This is a trend that goes right along with the popularity we have seen in previous years for home to be more eco-friendly.
