Design trends come and go from year to year. With the new year, there are some new trends hitting the market. Realtor Magazine identified 11 major trends, here are a few of them that you may want to know about. For example, what’s the new, hot paint color? And, what counter-top material is outselling Granite?
White and gray have always been go-to neutral colors, but taupe is coming in as the newest favorite. The gray-brown is a great neutral, while it adds a little extra “coziness.” Would you paint your home taupe?
Out with the Granite and in with the… Quartz!
Quartz and Quartzite are becoming the new favorites for counters. Being just as durable as granite with a wide array of options, it’s becoming the new must-have for any kitchen!

Sense of Community
People crave community. They want to feel that closeness with people. As more and more of us are working longer hours and moving away from family, it’s difficult to satisfy that craving. Because of this, community centers and close-knitÂ neighborhoods areÂ being highly sought after.Â
Because of the long work hours, people want their homes to be an escape. They want to feel like they can relax and have fun when they come home, so many people are installing putting greens, sport courts, pizza ovens, etc. What do you want to have at your next home?
Saving energy and using it more efficiently is becoming not just a craze but a necessity (thanks to rising energy costs). Installing more energy-efficient appliances,Â using healthier water systems and using gas fireplaces are a few ways people are addressing this issue.Â
Although these aren’t the only design trends sure to enter the market this year, these are a few you should keep in mind. You should also rememberÂ that “trends” come and go.Â When decorating with the latest trends you can call YOUR REALTOR, Chuck Malone, for his input on how your trendy improvements will affect your home value… and which ones to avoid.
