These home remodeling trends will revamp your home and make you feel good.

If you are thinking about making a few changes to your home in 2013, here are some of the latest remodeling trends for the year ahead that will appeal to almost anyone.

Going Green

This is a trend that has been on the radar for a while with many homeowners making positive changes around their home in an effort to embrace greener living. There are many ways to make your home more eco friendly in 2013 ranging from small changes such as replacing your bulbs with energy saving bulbs to having solar panels installed. This will not only save energy but it will save you money on your monthly bills. Environmentally sound timber windows can also add value to your home by making it more attractive while increasing the energy efficiency of your home.

Bigger Bathrooms

A bathroom is no longer simply a functional space in which to get ready for the day ahead. 2013 is set to be the year of the lavish bathroom. Standard baths are to be replaced with Jacuzzi tubs and roll top baths while showers will be upgraded with luxurious, oversized showerheads. Monsoon style bathing is a luxury that many only experience in boutique hotels but this year homeowners will be setting a new trend that will provide  a lavish bathing experience that can be enjoyed daily.

Sleek and Chic Kitchens

The kitchen will remain a functional space in 2013, but the design and decor is set to change significantly. The easiest way to update your kitchen is to focus on the outdated features such as stoves, fridges and cabinets. Updating these areas will instantly bring a contemporary feel to your home and help you to keep up with the latest remodeling trends at speed. When it comes to on trend shades, creams and light neutral shades are a popular choice. These shades will not only make your rooms look lighter, it will also create the illusion of a larger room.

The Laundry Room

If you have a kitchen with a built-in washer machine, especially a noisy one, you will be a huge fan of this final trend. Having a separate room that caters for all of your washing needs is the latest craze and if you have the space, it is a great place to do washing, ironing and general organizing. This is probably the most efficient remodeling trend of the year.
