  • Simply painting your front door or even your garage doors can make a bold difference to your home’s curb appeal.
  • Use saturated hues like blues and greens to create a spa-like sanctuary in your bathroom. Doesn’t that sound wonderful?
  • The kitchen, the heart of the home, could always use a change in color. Use a bright yet warm green shade or go bold and daring with the many grays that are grabbing the attention of interior designers.
  • Paint your bedroom with colors that remind you of your favorite place. Get inspiration from your surroundings and incorporate them into your style. Hilton Head Island can be such a great source for this, with the natural colors already the trend.

Re-Style With the Latest Design and Interior Trends

Restyling your home can seem challenging if you don’t know where to begin or what to focus on. Keep it simple and stylish with these tips:

  • Focus on furniture knobs, kitchen cabinet hardware, faucets, shower heads and fixtures in your bathrooms. Replace them by selecting from the yellow metals, like brass, bronze, and golds, but with a soft finish.
  • And lastly, Tile. Yes. Tile. It’s not the traditional heavy, unwilling, material anymore. Adam Weintraub of Koko Architecture explains, “New technologies are allowing tiles to be more versatile–they’re thinner so they’re easier to hang, less expensive, and, well, cooler.” Tile is finding its way into bedrooms, living rooms and other areas of the home.

Re-Create With the Latest Outdoor Home Improvement Trends

  • Draw the attention of any onlooker to an updated garden with bright, vibrant colors added to your landscape.
  • A distinct, bold door knocker can make a statement all on its own.

Hilton Head Island’s natural beauty and moderate temperatures allow residents to spend most their time outdoors. Because of this, families are opting for more trendy outdoor spaces in leu of the traditional backyard. Indoor porches, modern patios, and/or purposeful yet stylish decks not only add value to your home, but make entertaining and living extra enjoyable!

What Buyers Want in Home Design: 2013 Trends

Home Trends 2013Getting the best price for your home when you have it listed for sale is always the main goal right? In order to make that happen, today’s home sellers need to be aware of what buyers actually want when it comes to home design.

Today’s blog post provides an overview of what the design pros are saying will be emerging trends in 2013.

Colors
Neutral color schemes are still the best choice when preparing your home for sale, however buyers are looking for the “new-neutral”. Opt for blue-gray’s and muted yellow’s instead of beige, white, or cream colors. For accent walls and accessories, design pros are seeing a trend toward orange and purple.

Outdoors
Since more and more families are conscience of their budget, having a vegetable garden is a huge bonus for buyers. Outdoor kitchens are also looked at with added interest, if simply to allow families to do more cooking at home all year round and take advantage of the climate, especially here in Hilton Head Island.

Indoors

  • Buyers are looking for things like media rooms with comfortable seating, good lighting, and tables.
  • Double-duty furnishings are gaining in popularity. For example, ottomans that can double as storage and seating, sofa-beds, and coffee tables that can be used for dining provide those extra features. While that furniture is most times not sold with the house, buyers are able to picture themselves living in a home that has these features.
  • Eco-friendly appliances and other features will continue to rise in popularity.
