Remodelling Trends Allow For Home Personalization

Published on 2004-07-09. Author : SpecialChem


From the country chateau to the metropolitan dwelling, remodeling trends allow for personalization while adding character and charm.

"Consumers continue to invest significantly in home improvements, with special attention paid to creating warm and comfortable personal areas", states Debbie Zimmer, of the Rohm and Haas Paint Quality Institute.

In addition to concern for home improvements adding value to their existing homes, homeowners are also dramatically interested in transforming their homes into comfortable and functional living spaces. Kitchens continue to expand and bathrooms progress with obtaining more luxurious elements; both remaining highly desirable and popular remodeling projects. However, home improvement industry experts are reporting a surge in specific remodeling trend themes. Current remodeling projects are witnessing a dramatic emphasis on creating specialty areas to fit individual family member needs. Attractive, high quality materials are the method of choice and high on the priority list for today's savvy consumers.

Comfort colors representing earthy, natural hues are at the forefront of helping to beautify home remodel projects. Today's quality paint products provide a budget-friendly way to implement the hottest color choices as well as customize the remodeled space. Rich neutral colors are available in many more than the 'expected' warm brown tones. Contemporary neutral hues also reflect baked reds, smoky blue/grays, washed golds, muted greens and a large array of unexpected variations of exciting colors, including a full range of whites.

Quality paint products ensure maximum adhesion and attachment to surfaces, as well as greater durability to ensure a long-lasting remodeled project. Factory-finished aluminum finishes add an attractive, glossy finish to projects that have entry doors, columns and railings; whereas vinyl and pvc material products are newer available choices for remodel projects that entail exterior decking, walkways, lattice and fences. Polyester, fiberglass and synthetic stone materials lend practicality and embellish exterior living space remodels that have benches, balustrades and railings.

"As homeowners continue to place an intense emphasis on finding comfort within their home structure, home improvements and remodels will continue to surge", states Zimmer. The implementation of quality paint products are a financially responsible way to bring fashionable customization and long lasting results to any remodeled area.
