Thinking about remodeling this year? At NJW, your Columbus Ohio contractors never stop thinking about it! We know this time of the year tends to make people, who already had the inkling, start looking at trends and making soft plans for a small renovation or a complete redo.1_15finishb24

If you’ve got that itch, give it a little scratch by checking out some of these remodeling trends for 2015, then give us a call and we can help make your dreams a reality!

1. Bathrooms are big
Typically kitchens are always top of mind when it comes to remodeling, this year we can expect to see a major overhaul in a different room of the house — the bathroom.

Everything from sinks and color schemes to tubs and tiles will see some sort of upgrade, according to the National Kitchen and Bath Association’s style reports.

2. Bath, Not Shower
Inside that bathroom, trends are moving away from showers and toward large soaker tubs. These days it’s all about the soaking and free-standing tubs, so much so that we can actually expect a decline in standard tubs with shower-surrounds.

3. Not So Fast With That Shower
For those that do want to keep their shower, bigger is better. Expect to see more walk-in showers with oversize panes of glass or solid walls that completely enclose the space, rather than bathrooms with tiny cubicles.

4. Color
As gray continues to invade every aspect of our home, replacing beige as the go-to color, darker hues are starting to make an impact. For bathrooms, gray is also a growing trend. And all those white tiles on the wall? They may soon be replaced by sleek black.

5. The Sink
If you’re remodeling and your kitchen is more than a few years old, you’re probably due for a new sink. Those giant two-bowl sinks are on their way out, deep, single-bowl sinks are the current trend in kitchen sinks.

6. Accent Walls
Yes, they’re back! But don’t go searching for a sea sponge. Today’s accent walls are taking on a natural element in a different way. Homeowners are choosing textures and natural wood accents for walls. Reclaimed and vintage barnwood adds warmth.
