When planning any type of home remodel, it all comes down to design. There are certain design elements that will always evoke luxury and style; who hasn’t swooned over a fabulous marble or granite countertop at one time or another? Admired an exotic tigerwood hardwood floor or coveted unique architectural craftmanship in a home? We all have!
These types of design elements are MEANT to be admired. However, beautiful and luxurious design isn’t limited to only a few select materials. With today’s modern technology we are seeing some newcomers that are working hard to steal the show!
Quartz Reigns Supreme
It took a while for quartz countertops to make their way into the kitchen. The lack of color and finish variety was a major drawback for many homeowners. However, quartz is now easily and readily available in a wide range of colors and patterns, making it a highly sought-after product for high-end kitchen countertops. Quartz is anti-microbial, a breeze to maintain, extremely hardy and can last virtually forever.
Hardwood floors are still the most popular choice when remodeling a home, but close on its heels is ceramic tile. No, we are not talking about your mom’s ceramic tile from back in the 80’s, but modern gorgeous ceramic that doesn’t even look like ceramic tile.
Thanks to technology, you can get ceramic tiles that look exactly like hardwood flooring, but with a material that is easier to maintain. In addition to wood, ceramic tiles can be designed to resemble a range of other materials as well, including natural stone. Even the surface texture is changed to mimic these materials. The sky is truly the limit when it comes to ceramic tile options, from unique patterns to countless sizes, we see why ceramic is becoming so popular.
We hope these newcomers will help inspire your own ideas for your home renovation. From functionality to aesthetics, today’s modern homes are the ultimate in luxury, and we can help make this a reality for you and your family.
