“Working with Kitchen Kraft and Jim Deen was an incredibly seamless process from

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

to capture the vision we had for our space and effortlessly turn it into reality. There

truly is an art to the level of detail that goes into designing a space and executing the

process, and Kitchen Kraft certainly has that mastered.” - Chad

EDITOR’S

NOTE

GREATER COLUMBUS

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

format.

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.

Kindred

Spiritwood

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


1

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

this one.

“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

in.”

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


Driveway dwelling

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

bolts guy.”

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

their dreams.

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.”

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

throughout.

“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.”

Covid tavern

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

the 1920s.

“I call this room the Kenwood Room,” Lorinn explains. “Because it reminds me of the Kenwood

Country Club.”

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

it is.”

Beachy Keen

Bath remodeled with a bit of oceanside inspiration

BY LEE RHODES | PHOTOS BY DANIEL FELDKAMP ➻

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. ➻

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.

Taller cabinets

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


Praiseworthy tub

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

that today’s discriminating homeowner—and

spa-goer—wants.

AN INSIDE LOOK

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

@twopeasinablog.

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

44 housetrends.com


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

the woods.

“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.

Sports family

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

sleepovers.

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.” ➻

1 This mudroom mural, as well as others in the gym and game room

areas, are by local artist, Chris “Red” Newman. 2 A centrally-located

family room allows the traffic flow to move easily between the front

entrance, the kitchen area and the master bedroom wing. 3 A walkin

pantry is cleverly concealed behind a door designed to look like

cabinetry.

housetrends magazine 2021 47


Happy homebuilding

“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

done.”

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

screens.

“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

school graduate.

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.” ➻

of ping pong. 2 Stools made from bourbon barrels stand around the lower-level,

Amish-made game table. 3 A family friend, 9-year-old Jack (left), hangs out with

Luke (center) and Carson (right) in the gaming area. 4 An open-air patio, off

the lower level, features a linear gas firepit and outdoor kitchen equipment.

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

them go.”

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.

The News

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

home...

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

bidding war.

“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

home...

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

like.

“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

around 80.”

Landscapers and pool installers are

seeing similar inquiry numbers and

project timelines as well.

If you are building a new

home...

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-

58 housetrends.com


ing materials supplier. “This is a shortage

that began during the initial Covid

shutdown and the market has never really

recovered.”

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

you want.

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. ➻

housetrends magazine 2021 61

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.

62 housetrends.com


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,

heated floors).

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

BY KAREN BRADNER

Cabinet Creations Design Gallery Photo by Dawn M. Smith

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. ➻

Perfect Pavers is without question the best paver

restoration company in the business. These people

really care about the quality of work that they do. They

do truly perfect work with respect to cleaning between

the pavers and eliminating all of the debris that occurs

between them over many years followed by a thorough

cleaning and incredibly good job sealing their work

with a quality topcoat that makes them look brand

new. They are very communicative and have a great

professional attitude and friendly style. I will never use

any other company but Perfect Pavers for our needs. I’ll

give them my highest recommendation.
