Home Trends You Will Love

If you’re as addicted to Pinterest as the rest of the social media community, we bet you’re seeing those dream kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, and outdoor areas. D. R. Hartman Construction would love to work with you on these beautiful and functional projects for your home. The contract-to-build option means we set you up with an architect we trust to get the design ready for your home improvement, and we can get started on the project quickly.

Here are some ideas we’ve noticed on Pinterest and we think they would work great in the Northern Virginia, Washington D.C., and Maryland areas.

For the Kitchen: Open Shelving and Organized Cabinets

There is a ton of innovation going on in the kitchen from DIY to total remodels. We love making dream kitchens come true and there are two remodel options that won’t break the bank but will make your kitchen look more modern and functional.

First, shelving instead of cabinets is a budget friendly, modern, and attractive option for your home. We would install shelving instead of costly cabinets, saving you tons of time. Then your glass bowls, plates, and other kitchen items become décor on the shelves. If you’re worried about your food just sitting out, check out options like modern pantries to hide your cereal and supplies.

The second thing we love is organized cabinets. Custom designed cabinets organize all of your baking pans, cookware, and cleaning supplies in a modern way. Adding 4 or 5 shelves in one under-the-counter cabinet is a great way to organize just about anything so you aren’t digging and lifting everything you own to find your cupcake pans.

For the Bathroom: Ridiculously Cool Tubs

They’re all over designers websites and social media, and we know you want a huge soaking or Jacuzzi tub, because who doesn’t? From Jacuzzi tubs fitted against the wall that could fit your whole extended family, to free standing soaking tubs, these looks are as exciting as they are functional.

For the Bedroom: Lofting

Sometimes rooms, like children’s bedrooms, are begging for more space. Lofting is a great solution that your kids will love. Lofts can look seamless in a room with high ceilings. After the addition of a loft you will enjoy extra floor space and added comfort.

For Outdoors: Fire Pits and Places, and Outdoor Kitchens

Outdoor entertaining is a great way to spend time with your family and friends and what better way to do it than around a warm fire? Fire pits and outdoor fireplaces are rising in popularity. We love the idea of a stone wall around a fire pit and tons of seating for s’mores.

While we’re on outdoor entertaining, we also think outdoor kitchens are great additions for homeowners who love to barbecue for their friends and family. It can be as simple as a grill and countertops, or a full kitchen with burners, oven, and refrigerator. Outdoor kitchens allow you to stay outdoors with your guests while still preparing a wonderful meal.
