Top Trends in Home Remodeling in 2015


Contemporary Kitchen by Edmonton Kitchen & Bath Designers Cucina Bella Ltd. – Rebecca Gagne CKD

Consolidating outlooks from top design-build remodeling firms and highly rated remodelers, the following is a quick look at design/remodeling trends for 2015:

1) The Healthy Home

According to the world’s leading platform for home remodeling and design,, nearly half of us remodel to prevent potential health problems.  Think touchless flushing toilets, healthier paints and carpets, better air filtration systems.

2) Bath AND a tub

The heated tile floors and warming towel racks show no signs of going away anytime soon.  Walk in showers with over-sized shower heads are popular votes too.  Large soaking tubs are high on the wish list too.

3) Recycle and re-purpose

Taking something destined for the landfill is now getting a new life.  If it can be sanded, painted and re-used like old wood, its getting a second look.

4) Remodel to stay in place

Call it the love it or list it phenomenon but statistics are showing that while housing markets have been hot, the price inflation in some areas may be spurring people to renovate and remodel instead of deciding to move.

5) Metals

Metals are making their appearance from counters, lighting fixtures, to sinks and to wall finishes.  Coppers particularly are one of the up and coming.

6) Color

Retailers are always in front of the emerging paint color trends.  Its almost like a subliminal message.  Look at your favorite home goods retailer to find out which colors are popular.  Subdued blues and greens are emerging as favorites this year.  Gray is quickly emerging as the go to color instead of neutral beige.  Dark charcoal cabinets mixed with white and black are popping up in kitchens and baths.

7) Less is more

The trend toward clean, simpler minimalist looks are growing in popularity.  The desire to come home to a simple, less cluttered home is growing.

8)  Kitchens

Kitchen cabinets are turning back toward flat fronts.  The use of higher end vinyl floor tiles is also coming back.  It costs less than ceramic and is warmer on the feet.  The turn away from stainless steel appliances and replacing cabinets vs painting them is also becoming popular.  Single basin sinks are replacing double basin sinks.

9)  Spending more

Average home remodel projects have increased from an average of $15000 to $20-25,000.

10) Outdoor living

Still hot on wish lists is the outdoor living space.  The more year round this space can be used, the better.
