Home Design Trends Tips For 2015

As first-time home buyers furnish and decorate their homes, loan officers at The Federal Savings Bank know they are probably searching for home designs that are trending. To start the year off right and keep the look of their homes current, homeowners could consider the following trends for 2015:
Go With Dark colors.
Homeowners looking to revamp their walls could choose deep blue colors to not only have a calming effect, but also to add interest to the room. If blue is not their color, they can also choose Pantone’s 2015 color of the year, marsala. This rich red color is wine red to add some flair to otherwise dull walls.
Combine Old with the new.
Another trend is the use of contemporary chairs with rustic, aging tables. These old and new pieces complement each other.
To keep up with modern times, homeowners should also decide whether they need to replace or remodel certain parts of their homes, including:
Whirlpool baths.
While whirlpool baths that were popular in the 1980s were once thought to exude luxury, homeowners do not value them as much as they used to. Not only can whirlpool baths take up precious space, but they can also cost owners when it comes time to pay the water bill. Rather than let whirlpool baths take up extra space in the bathroom, homeowners could install a shower with more space or his-and-her vanities.
Kitchen desks.
Although homeowners in the past had a need for a desk in the kitchen to store cookbooks or other publications, the Internet age has replaced these books with lightweight mobile devices. Consider taking out the kitchen desk and replacing it with more counter space and cabinets.
