There are many beautiful and unique trends and styles all around us that we see everywhere. Kitchen remodels, bathroom remodels, and whole house remodels have been big these past few years and continue to be.

Monochrome: White & Gray

This year in the remodeling and new construction world it’s been all about white and gray. All white kitchens, from the cabinets to the counter tops to the backsplash and everything in between; white is the new black. Gray is also trending heavily in the wall paint department and for cabinets as well. Gray and white are so neutral, fresh, and clean; they go with any color and that is part of what is attracting so many home owners to choose them in their new home construction and remodels.

Quartz Countertops

Another big trend now is quartz counter tops. Quartz is beautiful, clean, and tough, all in one. It comes in so many different colors and looks that you can choose from and it’s very easy to maintain. Tuxedo cabinets are also highly in style, which is where all your cabinets are one color and your island is a different color. We are seeing a lot of white cabinets in kitchens with a gray or black island and they are gorgeous!

Backsplash Tiling

Backsplash is another huge trend that has been around for quite some time. Some of the most popular backsplash trends now are glass tiles and doing picture frame tiling above a stove range, but the biggest trend for backsplash right now is subway tile. Many are doing white subway tiles in their kitchens and/or bathrooms; white is a huge seller.

Bath & Shower Styles

In bathrooms, stand alone tubs and showers are becoming very popular and look amazing in a big master suite. They give the bathroom a luxurious feel and makes it a highlight of the home for many homeowners.


For flooring, waterproof laminate is being put in numerous homes in the Salem/ Keizer area. It is family friendly, durable, waterproof and has a variety of wonderful wood looking colors.
