Out with the old, in with the new. As homeowners continue to spend significant time at home adapting to work, school, and leisure, it’s no wonder the remodeling market has not only bounced back… latest research shows continued growth through 2021. Material consideration and space selection, design harmony, color, project timing, and client rapport are vital to successfully “reimagining” a space. Let’s discuss trends in residential remodeling.


Please share your projects, your photos, and your ideas. We can’t wait to discuss inspired remodeling… together with you at KBtribechat!

Our KBtribechat questions:


1.) Let’s kick things off on a serious note. Like most sectors of the economy, the home improvement segment has been affected by the pandemic. In what ways has the remodeling industry been permanently changed?


2.) Business. For remodelers, firms or independent designers: What’s the first question you ask a potential client who’s looking to remodel?


a.) Flashback to 2019…. Was it the same first question?


3.) Emerging Trends in Luxury Kitchen Design. What trends in luxury kitchen & bath are you most excited about for 2021+? Share photos and specs!


4.) Backsplashes. Glass – mosaic – tile – ceramic, the list goes on. What backsplash materials are your favorite(s) to work with? Why? Does the ease-of-installation play a part? Bonus find: imaginative backsplashes that double as “wall art”…. seen any? Share!

5.) Let’s talk interior trim detail, specifically craftsmanship & style: How can transitional trim create visual interest through proportion? Does proportion = beauty? Is less always more?


6.) Color me fresh. Show us your most impactful use of color in/on an existing room or space from 2020. Exteriors, interiors, and everything in between. Before & after pics are encouraged!

Remodeling ROI

According to Remodeling Magazine the value of remodeling is up after a long slide since 2006.  They report that the number one return on investment item is an entry door replacement (97%).  A minor kitchen remodel nets you 83% and a major kitchen remodel 74%.   A bathroom remodel nets you 73% of construction costs.  These national average numbers easily justify remodeling for those who are going to live in and enjoy their homes for some time before selling.  Nine percent of the time they found projects so extraordinary that they added over 100% of value to the home.  They also found that although the market is improved, more-expensive projects did not return as well as lower-cost projects.
