initial concept all the way through completion. We were amazed at how he was able

I have the great privilege
of being invited into some of
the finest homes in Ohio…
My mother loves reading every article I write in Housetrends. She thinks I live
a glamorous life. And yes, there is some truth to that. I have the great privilege
of being invited into some of the finest homes in Ohio and meeting a slew of
lovely homeowners. But most days I am working in my cubicle staring at my
computer screen hoping for inspiration.
And like the late-night talk show hosts who recently worked from home or
in an empty studio, I am hoping the audience—of Housetrends readers—is
enjoying our show.
That’s why I appreciate the feedback from Corey Knopp, whose home we
feature on our cover. Before taking me through his handsome home for our
photo shoot, Corey told me he loves reading Housetrends and collected some of
our pages for design inspiration when he was preparing to build his home. He
added that he especially appreciates that our magazine is available in a printed
Corey’s enthusiasm was much appreciated and when I returned to my office,
I shared his words with our publishers. They, in turn, added a bit of feedback
as well. One reader was especially happy to see our feature showing 11 outdoor
living spaces in our previous issue. Another requested we include more recipes.
Regardless of whether you are giving us feedback in the form of a compliment—or
constructive criticism—we really appreciate when you take the time
to let us know how we are doing.
In the meantime, thanks for reading this letter, and perusing the pages of
this issue of Housetrends.

Couple renovates century-old Indian Hill home
BY SARAH J. DILLS | Photos by Daniel Feldkamp
Lorinn Williams Smith was in the car business before she caught the construction bug
while selecting finishes for her first Ryland Home. “I remember thinking how cool it
was that I got all these choices—countertops, cabinets, light fixtures,” Lorinn remembers.
“Then I started marking up the floor plans. I was so excited, but quickly realized I
needed more.” ➻
housetrends magazine 2021 19
Since that first project Lorinn has built custom homes,
renovated in Sarasota and most recently tackled the
renovation of her family’s 1929 Indian Hill home. Up
until now, Lorinn and her husband Don have sold every
house they’ve built and flipped. But Lorinn is torn about
“I have realtors calling me all the time,” she explains.
“But I just don’t know about selling because this is my
favorite house of any we’ve ever done. I think it’s because
I have a kinship with this house that is similar to the kinship
I had only with one other house…the one I grew up
It makes sense that the Smiths call the house Spiritwood
due to Lorinn’s spiritual connection with the property; but
that’s not to say a lot of grit and elbow grease weren’t
involved in the two-year process of turning this house into
the Smiths’ home. ➻
1 From the back of the home, one can hardly differentiate the original home to the left from the major addition to the right. 2 The
elegance of the home is established immediately upon entering through the front door. 3 A center beam provides a striking architectural
element in the formal living room.
housetrends magazine 2021 21
When Don and Lorinn first moved
in there was no overhead lighting
or internet connection. The
chimneys weren’t working and the
14,000-square-foot property needed
a new roof.
“We took this house from the
inside out,” Don says of all the
behind-the-walls work that had to
be done. “I’m more of the nuts and
Lorinn adds, “His attention to
detail is impeccable.”
The couple lived in the home
while completing the extensive renovations,
which included gutting
the kitchen. When the dust got to
be too much the couple finally had
to move out…front.
“We lived in our R.V. in the driveway,”
Lorinn says with a chuckle.
But living in cramped quarters
was worth it in the end. The couple
now has the gourmet kitchen of
Room for more
Lorinn definitely had her four children
and daughter-in-law in mind
while designing the L-shaped kitchen,
but she admits she also had
future family members in mind. “All
I want is grandkids,” Lorinn says
looking at the four barstools at one
of the two islands in the space.
The homeowners worked with
Neal’s Design Remodel for the first
time on this project and could not
be happier with the experience.
While Lorinn has definite ideas
when it comes to design, she valued
the expertise of Neal’s kitchen
designer Cyndi Kohler.
“I would tell Cyndi what I was
thinking when we were making
selections, for example with countertops.
She would show up with
three samples and I just needed to
pick one,” Lorinn says. “It made the
whole process so much easier.”
“Troy Sexton was our field supervisor
and he’s a master carpenter,”
Don explains. “Chuck Crellin, our
project manager, was more big picture,
but they all took so much pride
in their work.”
1 A circular drive leads past the front of the
home to a 5-car garage wing. 2 Although it
looks the part historically, this “Kenwood
Room” wing of the home was a later addition.
3 The Lucite base of the sink in a
nearby powder room, was an inspirational
starting point for the kitchen remodel. 4

1 Lucite and brass pulls add a bit of bling to the cabinetry. 2 An existing stone wall, complete with a fireplace, adds a cozy element to
the remodeled kitchen. 3 Brass accent pieces find their way throughout the kitchen. 4 As an avid baker, Lorinn loves this space which is
dedicated to her craft. 5 The island to the right is the working space in the kitchen within easy reach of the appliances. The other is used
more for entertaining.
In the zones
The kitchen is open, yet spatially divided into two separate spaces. One side of the kitchen is the
functional, cooking side of the kitchen while the other side is more of the entertaining section.
Walnut detail nooks, like the butler’s pantry and baking nook, accentuate the white Shaker cabinetry
“I try to select finishes I think everyone will like and then add my style through hardware,”
Lorinn explains. “It’s much easier for a new owner to change handles than replace the cabinetry.”
The larger subway tile backsplash, which Lorinn was happy Kohler suggested, gives the space
a clean finish while honoring the original style of the home, as do the curve-cornered walls. The
radiators were removed and secret storage nooks were constructed in their place. Lorinn and Don
also chose to keep the original hardware on the doors of the home.
Lorinn chose a Carrara quartz countertop because it gives the look of marble with more durability,
which is important to her as she loves to cook and bake.
Replacing the flooring with walnut hardwood was a challenge during Covid. “We thought we
were going to have to drive to North Carolina and load the lumber on a trailer ourselves,” Lorinn
remembers with a laugh. “But it all worked out and was delivered in the end.”
An addition was added onto the house right off the kitchen in the early 2000s, which includes a
billiard room, bar, and apartment where Lorinn’s son lives. The billiard room features a massive
fireplace with masonry work completed by a relative of the original stonemason of the house in
“I call this room the Kenwood Room,” Lorinn explains. “Because it reminds me of the Kenwood
The bar off the Kenwood Room came in especially handy during Covid, serving as the watering
hole for the family. Lorinn and Don take turns bartending, but Lorinn admits she makes the better
cocktails. She says the three taps are, “a beer for me, a beer for Donnie, and a beer for the kids.
“We had such a good time spending evenings in here during quarantine,” she adds.
housetrends magazine 2021 25
From house to home
Lorinn and Don could not be happier
with the finished project, whether
they’re sitting by one of their fireplaces
or chasing their beloved Frenchies,
Ellie and Penelope, on the newly
landscaped lawn where they planted
over a hundred new trees.
“We lived in a condo where we used
maybe two or three rooms,” Lorinn
says. “I can honestly say we use every
room in this house. Even though this
house is much larger than our condo
was, when you come in it doesn’t feel
overbearing. It feels lived in, because

housetrends magazine 2021 29
Who among us doesn’t love a trip to the spa?
These days, people have the option to just head down the hall to the master bathroom, as more
and more homeowners are turning this space into a spa-like retreat. In fact, bathrooms are increasingly
becoming one of the most popular home renovation options, and for Pat and Misti Campbell,
the result of their bathroom remodel is a serene sanctuary whose vibe would rival that of any spa.
The Campbell sanctuary is not only serene but also spacious, though it was not always so. The original
bathroom, 20-odd-years-old, was bisected by a hallway and a wall, creating a tight space not uncommon to
many bathrooms of this era. Working with plans from designer Niki Matthews, Jared Mason of The Creative
Kitchen Company created two entrance and exit points so that two people can function and never be in each
other’s way. The biggest challenge was trying to create good flow while making sure the space was still attractive.
Attractive it is, partly because of the color scheme—almonds and whites, along with different woods and
varied textures—which warms up the spaces and gives it an airy, beachy feel. Hand-crafted, sliding barn doors
allow entry to the bath and adjacent master closet, and custom lighting and natural light from the windows
create a luminous backdrop. The porthole-like windows filter in sunshine (and starlight) to create a nautical
illusion. They are also reminiscent of the round windows throughout the remainder of the house. ➻
1 A mosaic niche in a coordinating tile provides room for shower necessities. 2 Rectangular vessel sinks
sit atop the taller than average vanity. 3 Freestanding shelves, made of wood and iron, provide attractive
storage for towels and shower accessories.
Barn-panel tile adds a rustic touch behind the double vanity.
housetrends magazine 2021 31
Layers of lighting
Mason explains that today’s homeowners
are steering away from a single
overhead light to canned lighting
with a few accent lights. Misti concurs
that the elegant sconces she chose,
complete with vintage bulbs, are “very
romantic in the evening if you’re in
the soaker tub. They look like candles.”
The recessed skylight in the ceiling
is outlined in the same driftwoodesque
material as that on the distinctive
tiled wall that houses the dual
sinks and swivel mirrors. Multiple
bathroom mirrors create a shimmering
effect and, as with light fixtures,
Mason confirms that it’s in vogue to
have a series of mirrors versus one
large mirror extending the length of
the bathroom. The larger tiles on
the floor help the room to visually
expand, while the smaller pencil line
that is the grout stays cleaner, longer.
The rich travertine cabinetry, chosen
specifically to pull in some darker hues,
is one of the homeowners’ favorite
features. At 34.5-inches, the cabinets
are prized in many of today’s baths
(as opposed to the traditional 30-inch
versions of cabinetry). “Our cabinets
and our sinks are higher so we don’t
have to bend over to brush our teeth,”
explains Misti. “I didn’t realize what a
difference it would make.”
The Campbell bath also houses a
separate makeup counter with spacious
drawers for storage—with
storage being the key word. “The
current trend is lots of good storage
in the bathroom,” says Mason,
“and linen cabinetry is especially
desirable.” Today’s pull-out storage
options include slots for hair dryers,
straighteners and more, with outlets
included in the hidden space
so that there are no messy cords
cluttering the countertops. ➻
Travertine tile covers the shower walls floor to ceiling.
housetrends magazine 2021 33
All hail the Campbell’s freestanding
soaker tub, which takes up less space
than the large corner tub that preceded
it. “There used to be a square
in the corner, and we had a walkup
area to get into the bathtub, set in
slate with a large ledge,” says Misti.
“It was overwhelming.” Next to the
soaker tub, perfectly sized for today’s
standards, the glass-enclosed shower
space with elegant hardware and
a built-in shower shelf provides an
equally luxurious bathing experience.
Many of today’s homeowners also opt
to incorporate shower benches and/
or zero-entry showers. “Zero-entry
showers have no curb to step over,”
explains Mason, “A lot of people are
thinking to the future.”
Other forward-thinking concepts
include multiple shower heads, heated
floors, tubs with whirlpool jets,
surround sound and other spa-like
comforts. The Campbells chose to
install a television in their upgraded
bath, further evidence that the master
bathroom can accommodate all the
luxe offerings and creature comforts

Planning a remodel
Lifestyle blogger shares the ins and
outs of her kitchen makeover
While fashion finds, fitness tips and beauty products are often the focus of the photos
in Katey Haines blog posts, her dated kitchen is not. Katey lives in a 35-year-old Dublin
home with her husband and three children. It’s from this space that she creates much of
the content for Two Peas in a Blog, an Instagram account with nearly 200,000 followers,
she produces with her twin sister Betsy, who lives in North Carolina. ➻
housetrends magazine 2021 39
AN INSIDE LOOK
Other rooms in her home have been the backdrop for many of the
posted photos, but Katey has carefully avoided using her kitchen—which
doesn’t reflect her style—until now. After living in the home for 17 years,
Katey is ready to tackle a major kitchen renovation and she is taking
Housetrends readers along for the ride.
In this article, the first of a three-part series, Katey and her remodeling
team at Dave Fox Design-Build Remodelers take us through the process
of a comprehensive kitchen remodel. Construction began in June and is
set to wrap up in the fall. We’ll follow along, starting with the planning
stage and speak with Katey, along with design consultant/sales director
Steve Dempsey and interior design manager Michelle Mixter.
HT: Steve, how difficult was it to
remove the wall?
SD: We were fortunate that the wall was
not structural. However, by taking walls
down, we can run into other challenges
with relocating existing mechanicals.
HT: How has the pandemic and
current remodeling environment—
with global shortages and logistical
issues—affected this project?
SD: Beginning a design process via Zoom
meetings is challenging, but we were able
to make all material selections in person.
In general, lead times for products are
extended—especially some appliances—
but we’re able to make accommodations
and get the products our clients ask for.
Being the size firm we are, we have the
facilities in place to store materials and
products in bulk, which has been key.
HT: Michelle, was there a particular
starting point when it came to the
overall design of the space?
MM: By embracing the angles of the
existing home, we were able to design a
new plan that made the angles purposeful.
HT: What drove your decisions
regarding material selection?
MM: The countertop selection solidified the
final cabinet colors. Using multiple colors in
a single space can become overwhelming,
but here, multiple colors create a calming
environment allowing a few accent pieces to
become highlights in the space.
In our next issue of Housetrends, we’ll
check in with Katey and her team
and let you know what it’s like living
through a kitchen renovation while
working from home and raising three
children. In the meantime, follow along
on instagram @davefoxdesignbuild and
HT: Katey, what didn’t you like about your current kitchen?
KH: The overall layout was functional. I loved the big island space. But the aesthetics—
like the floral tile countertops—were dated. Plus, all the wood cabinetry made it feel
heavy and dark.
HT: What do you want in your new kitchen?
KH: Basically, we want it bigger and brighter. By opening up one wall, we will gain a lot
of extra space and bring in much more light. Plus, I love that we are going to have two
islands. We’ve never had an island where friends can sit and gather and our kids can talk
with us while we prepare meals.

Knocked it Out
BY THE PARK
Home’s design and location is a hit with Washington Township family
BY KAREN BRADNER | PHOTOS BY DANIEL FELDKAMP
housetrends magazine 2021 45
Welcome to a home where boy, boy, boy,
meets location, location, location.
The signs are clear that three young boys are in residence in a newly built Washington
Township home. Photos of the boys at various ages are placed liberally throughout.
Artwork showcasing their footprints is on display. Baseball caps and sporting equipment
are tucked away in a mudroom cubby and beneath second-floor bunk beds.
There’s a cap printed with “#boymom” that hangs on a hook near the laundry room.
So, it’s not surprising when the homeowner is asked why he chose this particular
location, he points out a window to the back yard indicating a path that cuts through
“That path, right there, takes you to Schoolhouse Park,” says Corey Knopp. “The main
reason we bought this lot is we wanted to be near that park.” The Knopps’ prior home
was less than a half mile away and didn’t have much of a back yard. The couple wanted
space for the boys to play while keeping them in Centerville schools. “Carson and Luke
both play basketball and baseball and Luke also plays football, Corey adds. “They can
walk right through those trees to practice and bring friends home afterwards.”
Remote-control-operated screens and a fireplace make the covered patio usable on all but the coldest of days.
Twelve-year-old Carson and 9-year-old Luke are both heavily
involved with sports and there are signs that 3-year-old
Bryce won’t be far behind. Their mother, Lindsay, is a physical
education teacher at Fairbrook Elementary in Beavercreek.
The family’s lower-level exercise room is amazingly equipped
with multiple cardio machines, weights, benches, and a net to
receive baseballs hit off a soft toss and golf balls hit off a tee.
Lindsay gathers here for a workout with her sister and friends
on a regular basis, and the boys, along with their cousins and
buddies from the neighborhood, take full advantage of this
space as well.
“We wanted to have some spaces where they can hang out
with their friends and burn up some energy,” Corey says.
Building the dream
“When we first met with the Knopps, it was clear that this
home was going to be all about family,” says builder Mike
Simms with HBS Development/Homes by Simms. “Corey and
Lindsay would have specific ideas about spaces that worked
for the boys, and spaces that worked for them as a couple.”
HBS has been building luxury homes in the Dayton area
since 1975. Since joining his father’s company shortly after
graduating from college in 1991, Mike estimates his team has
built close to 1,000 homes. Their experience paid off for the
Knopps. “HBS developed a floor plan that really suited our
family,” Corey says. “I feel like we take good advantage of all
of the space.”
For example, an upstairs hallway which was originally
earmarked for study areas was transformed into a bunk bed
gaming spot that is a huge hit for all three boys and their
friends. Simms had seen a similar space in a previous home his
team built and made the initial suggestion. The trim carpentry
team at Sabin Construction, suggested using end-to-end
full-size beds to accommodate growing boys and occasional
Another example is the lack of a formal dining room in the
floor plan. “We had one in our previous home and never used
it,” Corey says. “We wanted to push that square footage into
other areas—such as a larger great room and a wider staircase.
We’re not formal people.”
“I just got rid of our formal china,” Lindsay says. “It was just
taking up space.” ➻

“Mike was great to work with,” Corey says. “For a number of reasons.
First, he brought in Shannon Ruby as a residential designer, and we
could meet with him as many times as we needed.” Shannon gave the
Knopps several iterations of the front elevation before they nailed
down a final design. “I really appreciated that,” Corey says.
“When construction began, Mike didn’t say ‘no’ to anything,” Corey
adds. “He didn’t ask why we wanted a particular feature. He just developed
a way to pull it off.”
Corey has high praise as well for Totha Hurt, office manager with
HBS. “If I had an idea or thought, I would call Totha. She gets things
Something for everyone
“Most of our weekends are filled up with the kids’ sporting activities,”
Corey says. But when they’re not cheering from the sidelines, or shuttling
to the swimming pool, you can often find the couple relaxing
on the covered patio which features remote-controlled, retractable
“When we have friends over, that is the spot,” says Lindsay.
“Everyone flocks out there, even the boys. I think the fireplace and the
screens are what makes it. They allow us to be out there nine months
out of the year.”
The screens allow the couple to open the back sliding doors for
an easy flow—for family, friends, and air—between the great room,
kitchen, eating area and porch. With a large center island that seats
four, it’s no surprise that the kitchen is also another popular hangout.
Nine-foot ceilings and pendant lights dropping from an inserted
ceiling detail, work together to make the kitchen a bright and airy
space that draws the family together. Both Corey and Lindsay cook,
but Corey, who now works in the healthcare industry, is also a culinary
When asked if there is a special dish he likes to prepare, his answer,
like the home’s location, centers around the boys. “These days, it’s
mostly comfort food,” he says. “Whatever the kids will eat.” ➻

Timing is everything
The family moved into the home in January of 2020, just a few weeks before a lot of
the boys’ activities shut down. “We were able to really enjoy the house,” Corey says.
The whole family took full advantage of the exercise room, and the covered patio, and
they played a lot of ping pong, as well as a “ton of monopoly.”
When the weather warmed and it was time for landscaping, the couple turned
over the reins. “We had opinions on everything about the house,” Corey says, “But
when it came time for landscaping, we got Grandma’s Gardens on board and just let
Curved plantings and sidewalks often draw neighborhood friends to visit the
Knopps via the covered porch entry. Dawn Redwood trees frame the open-air patio
with its linear gas firepit and outdoor kitchen space. And clusters of Norway spruces
and river birches stand alongside the boys as they cut through the path to the park
that brought their family home.

Current challenges in the home selling,
building, and remodeling markets
BY KAREN BRADNER
As a result of spending more quality time in our homes this past year, most of us are now
thinking about updating the quality of our homes. But whether you want to buy an existing
home, build new, or remodel your current space, you are sure to be entering a marketplace
that has changed drastically.
No matter which of these three settings you may find yourself in, the phrase that seems
to sum up the current environment is limited supplies. ➻
housetrends magazine 2021 57
If you’re buying an existing
chances are there is a record-low supply
of homes for sale in your targeted
neighborhood. Many homes are selling
for over their list price and you
may need to be prepared to enter a
“We’re seeing a unique market
trend of historic low housing inventory
paired with soaring home values,”
says Rachel Ennis, director of marketing
with Coldwell Banker Heritage in
Dayton. “This has a lot of homeowners
eager to list, but they have some
hesitation knowing finding their next
home could be a challenge.”
In this market, it’s a good idea to
hire a real estate professional to help
you navigate the process, but here are
some tips to keep in mind:
• Be prepared for a longer house
hunt. Even though things are moving
quickly, it might take longer to
find the home that’s right for you.
• Consider broadening your scope.
Having too narrow of a target area,
limits your options.
• Get your finances in order. If you’ll
need a mortgage loan, get preapproved,
not just pre-qualified. If
you can make a cash offer, it’ll set
you apart from other buyers. Either
way, set your budget and stick to it.
Don’t get swept up in the frenzy and
make a bad money decision.
• Know when to walk away. If you keep
getting outbid and think you’ll have
to settle for a home you don’t really
want, or one that is over budget,
consider waiting. Revisit the idea in
six months or a year and see if the
market has settled down enough for
you to restart your efforts.
If you’re renovating your
perhaps looking to improve your
kitchen or outdoor spaces, you are
probably finding it difficult to get
a remodeler to quote the project or
schedule the work as quickly as you’d
“Several of our remodelers are
completely booked through the end
of 2021,” says Pam Patter, executive
director of The National Association
of the Remodeling Industry, (NARI)
of Central Ohio. “One of our members
who used to get 20 or so calls a
week, from homeowners wanting to
remodel, told me they are now getting
Landscapers and pool installers are
seeing similar inquiry numbers and
project timelines as well.
If you are building a new
you’ve no doubt heard about lumber
prices skyrocketing as much as 300
or 400 percent. Surging lumber prices
have pushed the price of an average
new single-family home ($298,500
in 2020 according to the U.S. Census
Bureau) $35,872 higher, according
to an analysis by the National
Association of Home Builders. But
the good news is there are signs that
supply is catching up with demand.
“While some chaos in lumber markets
may continue this year, most of
us in the industry expect prices to
fall from the record highs set in May,”
says Alan Pippenger, president of
Requarth Co., a Dayton based build-
ing materials supplier. “This is a shortage
that began during the initial Covid
shutdown and the market has never really
Pippenger goes on to explain that
although lumber suppliers predicted a low
demand, they were actually met with a
surge in demand as builders and remodelers
continued to work—and try to meet a
dramatic increase in home improvement
requests—during the pandemic.
“Supply is loosening up,” Pippenger says.
“Material is becoming more available. My
vendors are even offering specials—which
was unheard of a month ago. It will take a
few weeks before it reaches the retail level,
but prices are starting to correct.”
Whether you are buying,
renovating or building...
the supply chain has been affected on
almost every level. Along with building
materials like lumber, drywall, and PVC,
furnishing items—such as furniture and
appliances—are delayed as well.
“There has been a humongous increase
in the demand for appliances,” says Kenny
Rieman Jr., of Custom Distributors, Inc.
“We’re still in the thick of it. A lot of brands
are taking 16 weeks plus to ship.” That
“plus” is part of the problem, but manufacturers
are working to give a more accurate
ship date. Most of the appliances are built,
Rieman says, but just need a computer chip
to be ready for delivery.
The situation is beginning to improve,
especially compared to this time last year
when Rieman says it was difficult to get
most any appliance. Today, there are appliances
available in almost every category,
but they may not be the exact style/configuration
It’s a good time to plan...
despite all the logistical challenges. Now is
a great time to evaluate what you need in
your home and plan your project accordingly.

The Good News
Taking the time to plan can make
your build or remodel worth the wait
BY LEE RHODES
Looking for a post-Covid positive? One of the silver linings of spending so much time at home has
been the opportunity to gain a fresh perspective on our surroundings. Hopefully quarantine fired up
your imagination about your living space and how you want your home to look and function. Also,
we all know that remodeling adds home value, whether you’re looking to make upgrades tailored for
your family or looking to sell down the road. So while last year was the perfect time to contemplate a
home remodeling project, this year is a great time to put your plans into action. ➻

Quality home remodels take time...
and now is no exception. In fact, current supply chain issues and increased consumer demand
are extending project timeframes, but this gives homeowners time to fully plan and determine
how to get the best bang for their buck. Dan Dressman, executive director of the Home Builders
Association of Greater Cincinnati, has some advice on top home updates that pay off.
“Kitchens and baths have traditionally provided the greatest return on remodeling investment,”
Dressman says. “If you have a limited amount of resources but want to improve your home for
resale, put your money into these two rooms.”
When it comes to kitchens...
this past year has created a new generation of home cooks who want to keep on cooking. And
they want a space that reinforces the kitchen as the heart of the home. So as you remodel, strive
for a soothing space that provides sustenance of a different kind. If you’re not looking to make
drastic changes, consider making smaller tweaks. Add a fresh coat of paint (hint: white is still in,
as are warm colors). Repaint, refinish or upgrade your cabinetry. Even something as simple as
new hardware or value-added amenities such as a new faucet or new lighting can make a stylish
statement or give the kitchen a fresh feel.
In terms of bathrooms...
the same principles apply: while you wait
to fully renovate, make small changes
that can have a big impact. Incorporate
a unique mirror (or even a full-mirrored
wall), illuminate with luxe lighting, or
introduce some wooden accents. Along
with natural materials in general, wood
is an on-trend element, with its ability
to add warmth and juxtapose the
typically cold, sterile look of bathrooms.
Wood look tiles are a chic option, as are
wood accent walls. Always popular in
bathrooms are space-saving options such
as built-in niches, above-door shelving
or even simple wall hooks. For those
interested in a larger bathroom remodel,
consider incorporating a floating sink or
freestanding soaking tub. And remember:
the bathroom is a place for self-care,
and today’s bathroom should provide you
with a serene, spa-like experience (hello,
Outdoor living continues...
to be popular. “All-season rooms, patios,
and other outdoor living projects add
value to a home and are great resale features
and definitely worth the wait. After
all, they are an extension of your home,
which you have a new appreciation for.
Your little getaway out back may include
an amenity-filled outdoor kitchen, fire
feature and pool. You may also opt for
incorporating some smart technology,
ambient lighting and a garden.
There’s no time like the present...
to reassess your kitchen, bathrooms and
outdoor living space, especially with
remodeling loans at particularly low
rates. And though some remodelers are
booking over a year out, use this time
to set a budget, research remodelers,
gather ideas, earmark photos of designs
you like, and reflect on the past year in
terms of how your home worked for you.
Inspiration will come.

Color Where You Cook
Remodeling your kitchen?
Maybe you should consider color for your cabinets

White kitchens have been considered to be timeless and classic for decades. But some
savvy homeowners have decided to not play it safe by adding a strong pop of personality
in the form of alternate finishes. Various shades of grays and blacks are incredibly
popular right now, but blues—in all hues—greens, and even purple have found their
way to the pages of Housetrends. See if you have a favorite. ➻
