Hot Trends Include Barn Doors, Shiplap Walls, Exposed Brick and MUCH More.
Hot trends are nothing new in American culture, and trends are certainly in flux every few years in the building and renovation industry. In decades past, you would have to go to a professional interior designer to see what was happening. But today, you simply go on Pinterest or Houzz or any of the hundreds of websites that will bring you up to speed on the latest craze you need to know about if you are building or remodeling. Here are a few items that fall into the hot trends category.
The Lowcountry has it’s own “coastal cottage” style that can be seen in any planned community where dirt is being moved. Many of these can be spotted with their light-colored exterior — often white — with a silver, metal roof. The interior often boasts shiplap walls (see photo); dark wood floors; shaker cabinets; “barn doors” with exposed tracks; stainless steel appliances (traditional and black); granite counter tops; and possibly a farmhouse sink in the kitchen.
Other hot trends that may or may not be found in the aforementioned house, include subway tile (see photo); exposed brick and other “textured” walls; pendant lights; heated floors; a tankless water heater; and an outdoor kitchen, just to name a few.
So if you are thinking about building or remodeling, be sure to search Google Images or other online galleries to familiarize yourself and then call us to schedule a meeting with Brad Chaney. He is familiar with the latest trends and can advise you in the next steps of the building process.
