There’s no substitute for experience and when you’ve been in business for close to 50 years, you’ve seen a lot of building trends and gained a lot of experience utilizing them to the best advantage. Homeowners have a wealth of design innovations to choose from when designing a dream home or planning a remodeling or renovation project. It’s important to select a custom builder or remodeler with the depth of experience and local building relationships to blend new trends with solid experience. Caldwell & Johnson provides that service.
Building trends for 2016 blend high tech innovation with modern materials that make the most of comfort and style. According to a recent profile by Consumer Reports, kitchens are getting a lot of love with super-premium appliances and restaurant-style features such as pizza ovens and indoor, undercounter smokers. These amenities are showcased surrounded by low maintenance surfaces with high design factor appeal. Quartz countertops and black stainless steel finishes are some of the standouts, delivering visual and tactile appeal with more forgiving surfaces than their predecessors.
Interest in energy efficiency remains high and the green building movement continues to grow exponentially. Increasingly, virtual reality is helping builders and their clients realize their shared vision. In a marriage of water-efficient green concerns and high tech, Wi-Fi heaters track water usage and allow users to remotely set the temperature through their smartphone.
