Fashion Trends For Your Home

Styles come and go, but if you’re going to shell out some nice coin, it would be nice to at least be fashionable. I’m not talking about your clothes, but instead fashions and trends for your home.

Before you decide to buy all new appliances, don’t you want to know what’s going to be in style for the next ten to twenty years? Stainless steel has been used in the best kitchens for over a century due to its universal appeal, its ability to provide a sterile surface, its shiny appearance, as well as its association with luxury. Rest assured, top designers from around the world say, if you’re contemplating going completely stainless, it will be a safe choice for awhile.

Design experts say in this economy, more and more homeowners are staying put and fixing up their homes, versus trying to sell. Right now, kitchen design is continuing to be the front runner of focus in new homes. In no other room are we seeing as much attention to detail. Along with that, kitchen budgets are still creeping higher in relation to the rest of the house. Kitchens are being recognized as not only the heart of the home, but also quite often the focal point and centerpiece.

Kitchens now often open to large great rooms, and look less “kitcheny” and more often like an inviting place to gather and entertain. The decorative elements that are strong right now include natural finishes like wood and stone but they are complimented by glass, shiny metallics, special attention to lighting details, and even crystal.

It is probably no big surprise that formal living rooms and even formal dining rooms are fading into the past and are eliminating the need for money spent on furniture and expensive decor that will never be used by the average homeowner. Seriously, when was the last time you used yours?

    Another home remodeling project that has been trending up is the addtion of a sunroom or solarium. Many homeowners are finding they can’t use their deck or patio and their existing rooms just don’t provide the light they would like to have. In many cases the new sunroom becomes the most used room in the house.

    I think stainless steel will remain fashionable for kitchens as that is what is always used in the top commercial kitchens which are getting more and more popular on TV as the popularity of celeb chefs increases. Plus they are a breeze to clean!

    I think for any wet place stainless steel can be the great option.As it has facility that it doesn’t react with water or air so it is safe from ferrosoferic oxide.
