Read on to find out why you should consider a remodel if any of these 40 looks are in your home.

Pink bathrooms were huge in the middle of the 20th century, largely thanks to First Lady Mamie Eisenhower. She famously redecorated one of the White House bathrooms in pink, which eventually resulted in the nickname “The Pink Palace.”

Interior design trends that defined the 2010s

The recession of 2007–2009 led people to question long-held assumptions about design, resulting in dramatic changes in how shoppers choose what they buy, where we all get inspired, and what designers create. Modern design became more conscious, more engaged, more exciting, more democratic, more individualistic. It was applied in so many new ways to so many new challenges.

Top Trends in Basement Design - Sebring Services

The traditional theater room has been the dream for most homeowners. But considering the cost and stress of setting one up and the increasing appeal of open concept design, 2019 will see more homeowners opting for open TV spaces.

Home design trends come and go, but some turn into classics that shape the way we think about style and decor for years to come.
