8 Long Island Remodeling Trends You’ll See in 2018
In over 30 years of business on Long Island, Kuhn Construction has seen so many styles and
we couldn’t be more excited about this year’s trending looks!
1) Open Interiors- Yes, you guessed it- still opening up those walls. The first floor open floor plan is still current as ever. It allows for better entertaining spaces and a more natural flow between dining, living, and kitchen areas.
2) Contrasting Exteriors- While stone and brick will always be classic, bold contrasting colors are the craze right now. Look for batten and board siding, dark painted entry doors, and bold white trim in new renovations this year.
3) Flooring- Hardwood flooring still remains as the Client’s most popular request but we have to admit that porcelain plank flooring is a close runner up. The versatile look and durability of porcelain tile has no contenders.
4) Countertops- Quartz is still stealing the show in countertops- its stain resistance, strength, and flawless patterns have proven how reliable it is. This material isn’t going away anytime soon.
5) Accent Backsplash- Crisp white kitchen cabinets are allowing for a canvas of decorative backsplash. Whether its glass tile or etched marble, it’s a certainly a look we are loving.
6) Metal Finish- We are seeing more clients asking for decorative hardware to really give style to their space. We recommend being open-minded to different finishes like brass, bronze, and pewter this year.
7) Doors- There's an upswing on 2 panel arched and track sliding interior doors recently. Door styles can really enhance the character of your home and Clients are not hesitating to take advantage of it.
8) Outdoor Kitchens- Those of us lucky enough to live on an island can agree that being outside is one of our favorite past-times. There has been an influx in requests of built- in outdoor cooking spaces along with covered bar areas, making our backyards more useful and enjoyable.
