Popular Remodeling Trends in the Twin Cities

In Minneapolis and the surrounding Twin Cities area last year, kitchen-remodeling projects returned up to 75% of the cost of the project in home resale value.

If you’ve decided on a remodel and need inspiration for your upcoming kitchen remodeling or bathroom remodeling project we have compiled a few of the trends that we have seen in the Twin Cities area.

Green product choices seem to be “all the trend” in Minneapolis. Fixtures for compact fluorescent lights, alternative insulation materials, and tankless water heaters are some of the trendy energy efficient choices being used in Minneapolis homes.

As far as looks and functionality are concerned owners of Twin Cities luxury homes are opting for features such as under counter appliances, built in appliances, and natural stone kitchen countertops.

White and grey colors, painted cabinetry, and hardwood floors add to the ambiance Twin Cities homeowners are looking for. Stainless steel appliances continue to be popular, however bolder colored appliances are coming back.

Space is one of the most valuable commodities in kitchen designs, which is one reason why open kitchens are trending. Open kitchens create more functional and social kitchen spaces. To help achieve the feel of open kitchens open shelving, open designs, and custom cabinets are being incorporated.

In bathrooms, Minnesota homeowners especially empty nesters and those with limited space are moving away from bathtubs to preserve space. However, for those with plentiful bathroom space they are still opting for separate showers and bathtubs.

Stepping away from solely, Minnesota, here are a few of the nationwide kitchen and bathroom remodeling trends popular in 2015:

 -LED lighting

-Computer area with recharging tech stations

-Wine refrigeration/storage

-Green kitchens with drinking water filtration systems and air filtration systems

-Luxury walk in showers

-Single deep bowl sinks
