Saying goodbye to 2016, and hello to 2017. It’s a new year, and the newest trends are exciting!
Custom Built in Bar
A great idea for a custom home is a built in bar. A small wet bar in the corner is a great option if you don’t have a lot of extra space. You can transform the space with a mini wine fridge, custom cabinets and countertops. This can be a unique area that shows off your style. If you have the extra space and you want your own area nothing better than a man cave for that special guy in your life; a full wet bar with decanter racks, glass holders, a humidor, and kegorator. A custom built in bar can be rustic, classic, modern, elegant, or any design you want. This area can be great for large gatherings, or a simple night at home.
Blues & Greens
A great trend this season that is sure to excite are bold, fun blues and greens. Think navy blue, cobalt blue, and emerald greens. Bold accent walls, furniture, and artwork. These colors will bring life to any room in the house.
A fun trend for 2017 a custom home is a cork wall. That’s right you read that right, a cork wall! An office area with a cork wall could help with the clutter, and free up space, or in a kitchen to organize the kid’s chores on this wall. Another great thing about a cork wall is it helps eliminate noise.
Taking an old piece of furniture and creating a new, fresh look, bringing it back to life is a hot trend. Going to a yard sale, or taking old furniture in your house and bringing it back to life is a fun project. For example take an old dresser and refinish it making it a modern piece, or turn it into something completely different like a tv stand, wine rack, or even a kitchen island. Or, maybe it’s time to change the old throw pillows on your couch, try a reupholstering with new bold fabric.
