Styles come and go, but when you are building a new home or investing in a home remodel with one of the custom home builders in Phoenix area, the goal is nearly always to create a space with lasting appeal. Something that won’t feel old and dated within just a couple short years.
2020 marked the 10th anniversary of the site, Houzz, a popular home design and inspirations site – one on which Reef Builders has been a Best of Houzz award winner for the last 6 years! We are proud to be a part of a site that showcasing our trade and helps homeowners design the home of their dreams.
In honor of its 10th anniversary, Houzz thought it would be fun to look back on some of its most popular photos in 2010 to see what trends – if any – were still relevant today. Here were a few trends they found had timeless appeal:
White on white on white. Bold, splashy colors and tiles have their place in a kitchen, but if you want something that can endure, a white kitchen is one that commands timeless appeal. Another trend popular within these white kitchens? Quality moldings and millwork. Spending more on classic, high-quality cabinetry and moldings is a look that never goes out of style. If you like the idea of a white kitchen, but want to add a splash of color, you can always add color and interest with the backsplash. Backsplashes have the least amount of long-term commitment, so if you’re tired of a particular design choice, it’s much more cost effective to switch out a backsplash than a countertop.
Blue, Grey, and Cream Color Palettes
Looking back on the last ten years, there have been many color trends, but soft, cool colors like blue, grey, and cream seem to have lasting appeal. And while grey and blue tend to be cooler colors, when married with a cream or soft white, they can instantly feel warm and inviting. Use these colors as a classic palette and choose accent pieces to provide seasonal color that can change on a whim.
Smart, well thought out storage never goes out of style! This is true throughout the home: whether we’re talking about a built-in mudroom storage cabinet or specialty drawer inserts in a kitchen. The key takeaway here is not to skimp on spending the time, effort, and money to incorporate these features into your new build or remodel with custom home builders in Phoenix area.
Must like the timeless appeal of white kitchens, simple, minimalistic style elements have shown to resound long-term as well. This applies to the use of simple lines, black and white color palettes, and warm wood tones to pull a home together vs. loud, splashy colors and designs that only last a season or two.
Master bathrooms are one of the most expensive rooms to renovate, so including design elements that will last for the long haul is a wise investment. But what works? Houzz has found that bathrooms with traditional, spa-like qualities endure better than those without. This means features like Carrara marble, clean lines, traditional vanity sconces, and more can extend the longevity of your master bathroom retreat.
