It seems that everyone is in the mood to remodel. Even as clients sit at the closing table, we’ve noticed here at Brighton Escrow that new home owners are coming up with ideas for making the place their own.
When it comes to a makeover, it is no surprise that trends tend to center around kitchens and bathrooms. After all, those are two of the most heavily used rooms in a house.
The laminates of a decade ago are a thing of the past. Today, laminate flooring is a less expensive way to achieve the look of tile or hardwood when the “real thing” is just out of financial reach. The reason people are flocking to the new laminates is because they so closely mimic the real thing and are available in such a wide array of colors and patterns.
It’s no secret that granite countertops have become the sweetheart of the remodeling world. If one solid slab it outside your budget, consider granite tiles. It’s less expensive and gives the same clean-lined look.
Perhaps the reason people enjoy remodeling so much is because the options are limitless. Changing just one element of a room can make it feel brand new.
