4 ways to renovate your home in 2017

Making renovations to your home, no matter how big or small, can be a daunting task. But it doesn’t have to be in 2017! We’ve done the research on the hottest (and easiest) trends in home renovation for this year and hand-picked the crème of the crop for you here.

In the Kitchen: A new splash for your backsplash

Updating your kitchen can be a costly and time-consuming renovation. Installing a new backsplash is an easier, and faster, way to give your chef’s space a makeover. Gray tile is the neutral to have in 2017 with the ability to compliment various materials and styles.


In the Bathroom: Black steel fixtures

Replacing the fixtures in your bathroom takes just an afternoon but can give the space a completely new look. Burnished metals like black steel offer an industrial and polished feel that is refreshing and unexpected in this space.


Under your Feet: Natural hardwood flooring

Looking to update your flooring in 2017? Stay on trend with the year’s green movement by using natural materials like bamboo or cork.


Up Above: Pendant lighting in the master suite

Your style should shine throughout your home, but especially in the master suite. Don’t settle for run-of-the-mill lighting from a standard ceiling fan. Illuminate your space with pendant lights for a subtle but fantastical ambiance.
