Topping the list for home trends this year is a vinyl siding style called board-and-batten. It’s vertically installed rather than horizontal. It’s a popular choice to attain a farm house look while still giving off a modern and charming vibe. It’s often times white and textured which is easily paired with natural wood and other shades of brown and black. Other colors are also available. This type of siding requires little to no upkeep. It will never need repainted and is easy to clean with a garden hose and mild soap. Another reason it’s a popular pick is because vinyl siding can withstand winds of at least 110 mph and resists impact better than it’s competitors. This is a throwback kind of love that pops against any landscape and trim.
Home owners are shifting to more natural lighting options meaning more windows. Designers and home owners are even removing upper cabinets on their kitchen walls to create a space for large windows, delivering views and ample natural lighting. This also helps ventilation purposes when choosing a window that is not fixed. Adding a window wall in the kitchen provides a more open area creating the illusion that it is larger. Most home owners who make the switch claim that a less “top heavy” room is more comfortable and feels larger.
Glass and Steel Room Dividers and Interior Doors
Glass and steel have been popular in home exteriors for several years now. Luckily, someone thought to incorporate this design into their interior, starting with glass shower walls and doors. The trend has expanded even further to create sound barriers throughout the home and also look extremely classy. Glass divider doors still allow for light to pass through keeping the open feel but allowing for distinct activity separation in the home.
