Home improvement season is just around the corner! Check out these five hot improvement trends to add some sizzle to your home this spring:

Home Improvement Trend #1: Jewel Tones

Add some bling to your home by enhancing rooms with touches of sapphire, emerald, ruby, turquoise, gold and amethyst throughout. Whether you decide to add these vibrant jeweled hues with throw pillows, a lighted vanity, sofa or even accent walls – you’ll immediately bring your home to life.

Home Improvement Trend #2: Pendant Lights

Add light, focus and texture to any room by putting ceiling fans and lamps away and complimenting your rooms with pendant lights. Perfect over a vanity, in the kitchen or living room, they come in various shapes, sizes and textures to match any decor.

Home Improvement Trend #3: White Kitchens

The clean look of an all-white kitchen is making a comeback, or did it every really leave? Warm up white cabinets with butcher block counter tops, subway tiles, dark grout, and entertaining backsplashes. Add touches of color with jewel-toned table linens, seat cushions and appliances.

Home Improvement Trend #4: Black Stainless Steel Appliances

Go to the dark side and outfit your kitchen in sleek, modern appliances that have all of the bells and whistles to make meal prep-time more convenient. Whether your kitchen is contemporary or country chic, this hot appliance trend works well with most finishes, color schemes and design styles. Plus, it hides smudges and fingerprints- requiring less cleaning time.

Home Improvement Trend #5: Bold Front Doors

Nothing says hello and delivers curb appeal like a bright and welcoming front door. Customize your home with a door that pops color in a neighborhood filled with ivory, taupe and grey – select a shade of blue, green or red that brings out your personality.
