Popular renovation trends in Burlington for 2019
If you’re planning on remodeling your kitchen this year, these trends are worth considering. These are not style points, like mixed finishes on handles or faucets overtaking matching ones, as those details change faster, and are easier to change out, as well. These are longer-term trends that go to the longer-term value on the highest-valued space in your home. When you are wanting to undertake a kitchen remodeling on your home in Burlington, Chatsworth Fine Homes, and our design team, can help!
Consider Quartz Countertops
Quartz countertops have been trending strongly lately. In fact, among the 93 percent who upgrade countertops, engineered quartz surpassed all of the natural stone materials combined in popularity, as granite continues a multi-year decline. Why might you want engineered stone, rather than natural? While natural stone surfaces still have the edge on beauty, there is no finer designer than Mother Nature, they require more maintenance than their manufactured countertops. They also lack the multi-year warranties that quartz brands offer, and require sealing on a regular basis. Engineered quartz surfaces are non-porous, easy to clean and highly durable.
Consider Natural Looking Hardwood Engineered Floors
Natural hardwood floors have also lost popularity to their engineered rivals. Instead, engineered flooring, such as engineered wood, vinyl and laminate, has become nearly twice as popular. Engineered floors can be easier and more cost-effective to install, enhancing their popularity, and laminate and vinyl typically cost less than hardwood.
Consider Hiring Professionals
Given this financial investment, it’s not surprising that 8 in 10 kitchen renovators hire a professional for their project, with general contractors and kitchen remodelers topping the list. One in five hire specialty service providers, such as electricians or plumbers directly, without a general contractor.
