What design trends are you seeing most often currently?
Tastes are evolving from the mountain traditional style. Contemporary architectural lines and cooler tones are popular. Clients desire to achieve a balance of clean elegance and inviting warmth. Much of our remodel work centers on bringing the home up-to-date both aesthetically and functionally while taking advantage of the latest in technology and energy efficiency. Windows are vastly improved from even 10 years ago, which allows for larger windows and expanding views. Also trending are materials that include porcelain tile, high-gloss cabinetry, and eye-catching wall finishes. The modern treatment of wood to achieve a variation on the barn wood look is a cost-effective trend, and Chinese stone sources are newly available due to the developing market in East Asia.
