If you’re planning a home renovation this year, you want to be on top of the latest trends in function and design. No longer do you have to deal with an outdated bathroom, peeling kitchen countertop, or living room wallpaper that went out of style before the fall of the Berlin Wall. Your next home renovation deserves only the best and the brightest in design, materials, and finishes. Let’s explore the hottest home renovation trends of 2015:

Commercial Kitchen Features

Ottawa homeowners who want to make restaurant-quality food without leaving home are turning to commercial kitchen appliances and countertops, storage spaces, and accessories inspired by professional chefs. Commercial kitchen ideas that are popular this year include stainless steel cabinetry, butcher block countertops, and professional-grade appliances with copper range hood. At Holland Homes and Renovations, we can help you create a kitchen atmosphere that is efficient and industrial yet warm and family-friendly.

Home Renovation Trends in Customization

Cost-effective prefab cabinets and storage spaces have their place, but in 2015 customized millwork is becoming very popular. In kitchen additions, this means custom cabinetry with built-in spaces for the fridge, freezer, and dishwasher to blend seamlessly with the rest of the kitchen. In living rooms, laundry rooms, and storage rooms, custom cabinetry ensures everything has its place and no space is wasted. Reward yourself with a fully customized home renovation that is built around the needs of your family, not vice versa.

Outdoor Living Space

Living in Canada, we need to make the most out of our outdoor space during the warm summer months before the winter cloak of snow traps us indoors. That’s why an emphasis on beautiful outdoor living space is so trendy this year. Take in the fresh air with an outdoor kitchen, dining area, fire pit, and pizza oven. Connect the indoors with the outdoors with floor-to-ceilings sliding glass windows.

Natural Bathroom Retreat

Bathrooms should be warm and comforting, not stark and sterile. For this reason, natural elements are a big trend in bathroom renovations this year. We’re talking earthy wood plank paneling, natural stone tiles, and even live plant features incorporated into the room, like a “vertical garden” as a feature wall. If privacy allows, a large bright window which allows views of outside greenery is also a great way to bring in natural light into the room.
