As a Home Improvement professional, it is vital that you are familiar with the many trends that have entered the Home Improvement market. Just like the Fashion Industry, things tend to be in-style one moment, and out of style the next. But, just like the Fashion Industry, things that were once popular often regain their popularity as time passes.
Chances are, if you’ve been a contractor for some time, you’ll recognize a few of these trends. Some of them were once quite trendy, and then their popularity faded. Now, though, they have regained popularity and become very trendy, especially for smaller homes.
Right now, small homes are incredibly popular, due to their size, affordability, and lack of damage to the environment. Those reasons make these homes very popular, especially with Millennials, who are concerned about size, affordability, and making sure the environment remains stable and secure.
Hardwood Plywood Furniture
Hardwood plywood is a very familiar material. It was used a lot, back in the day, and it is still used a lot. However, it is very easy to forget just how much you can do with it.
You can use hardwood plywood for all kinds of furniture. Whether you’re using it for tables or chairs or desks; hardwood plywood is a fantastic material due to this incredible amount of flexibility and its open-ended nature as a material.
This doesn’t really get into the heart of why it is so popular, though. In reality, the reason it is so popular is because, while it is an inexpensive material that can be used for many different types of furniture, it is also an incredibly beautiful material, and it comes in many different colors and hues, which are all absolutely stunning!
Unique Metal Furniture Pieces
Metal furniture is very stylish, giving off a very “futuristic” aura, while also remaining incredibly durable and incredibly versatile, due to the many styles and shapes that these furniture pieces are crafted in!
More and more people want to have unique contemporary furniture that they can use as a focal point for their home. People want to differentiate their homes from those of others, and unique metal furniture is one of the best, and most popular, ways to do it.
As a professional, you should know that Id Metalco is one of the best brands for finding these unique and stunning pieces that people love using in their homes!
Handcrafted furniture is an excellent addition to any home, but especially small homes. Why is this? Small homes have less space, and they need to not only maximize that space, but, using fewer pieces of furniture, they need to create the feelings that they want to be in their home. Having a great piece of handcrafted furniture - such as an Amish bookcase - creates a sense of history, practicality, togetherness, and relaxation that is vital for any home, but even more so in a small one!
High Performance Flooring
It goes without saying, but flooring covers the entirety of a home. Therefore, it is one of the most expensive and time-consuming processes that comes in when you have to work on a home. On top of that, most flooring materials aren’t very good for the environment, and some are actually very unsanitary.
Engineered hardwood flooring has become a trend due to the fact that it is incredibly durable - it’s engineered to be that way - and it’s better for the environment. On top of that, it requires less maintenance! More and more people are having engineered hardwood flooring installed, because of those reasons.
