The interior forecast for 2017 is all about bringing comfort, ease, and a sense of personal style to the home. Whether building, remodeling or preparing to sell, fresh design features can make a big difference in the value of a home. Ahead, read some of the top trend predictions for the upcoming year.

Smart Technology

Today’s homeowner dreams of a fully automated home that’s controlled via smartphone or voice commands. And if innovative developments in smart-home technology continue as predicted, this fad isn’t fading anytime soon.

Natural Elements

Embrace the nature! No home that’s “on-trend” is complete without a touch of nature to bring the outdoors in.

Defined Living Spaces 

Don’t worry all you open-living design enthusiasts…the reappearance of defined living doesn’t mean open is out. But, as people spend more time immersed in technology at work, it’s becoming more important to have a space to relax at home.

Patterned Floors     

Whether it’s continuing a room’s monochromatic theme or adding an unexpected pop, take advice from the experts…don’t be afraid to play with pattern. Geometric tiled floors are known to make a serious statement.

Painted Cabinets

Be bold! Leave behind the all-white kitchen trend of 2016, and introduce a splash of color. Painted kitchen cabinets are a surefire way to keep cuisine colorful.

Curb Appeal Tips | A Fresh Look for the Fall Market

Whether you’re selling or staying, never underestimate the importance of consistent home maintenance. Taking steps to keep up your home’s curb appeal can reduce the number of tasks you’ll have to tackle when it comes time to sell and ensure your home gives off the best impression all year long.

Remember: a little effort can go a long way. Consider the ideas below to put your best foot forward this fall season.

Revive Your Garden

Once you’ve got the lawn in pristine shape, spice it up by adding a splash of color with fresh, new plants for fall. Brighten up a faded summer-time garden with vibrant mums or colorful flowers.

Spruce Up the Lawn

Beautiful fall verdure can immediately make your home warm and ready for showings. But, that doesn’t mean it’s time to slack off on lawn maintenance during this season. Keep your yard free of falling leaves with frequent raking and cover up brown spots in the grass.

Highlight the Front Door

The front door of a home is one of the first things that potential buyers notice – regardless of the season.  Make your home’s first impression positively unforgettable with a fabulous front door. During the fall months, try a simple wreath or fall foliage to add a welcoming touch. If you’re ready for something more permanent, a fresh coat of paint in a vivid hue will do the trick.

Clean Up the Exterior

As summer turns to fall, trees will begin to shed its leaves and the canopy of greenery over many homes will fall away. As home’s become more exposed, it’s important to focus on the exterior. Before listing your home, small changes can do wonders for your home’s appearance – pressure wash the outside; clean the windows; apply a fresh coat of paint.

Add Outdoor Lighting

As the days get shorter, it becomes increasingly important to provide potential homebuyers with a safe path to your front door. Use decorative lights to illuminate walkways, and install flood lights or lanterns to brighten up entrance areas.

Keep it Simple

Be careful to not go overboard with fall décor. Keep it subtle with a wreath or a seasonal arrangement of gourds; things that will enhance the curb appeal of your home rather than serve as a distraction. Save the spooky Halloween decor for next year.
