What are the latest design & product trends in residential remodeling and custom building that are most likely to increase a home’s value?
There are few things that can brighten up a home as much as a freshly remodeled kitchen. The kitchen is undoubtedly the major selling point of a home, as well as a focal point for valuable family time.

For kitchen and baths, are there certain features (hardware, finishes, space savers, shower systems) that are in high demand and can fetch top dollars?
Quality is key. One of the most popular features to splurge on are countertops. Homeowners look for surfaces that are engineered to last. It’s why so many homeowners are opting for quartz. As we like to say at Caesarstone, our quartz is designed for life.
Color trends interior or exterior; are there colors that are more appealing for home purchase or sale?
The right paint can give you a lot of bang for your buck…both inside and outside. It adds to the curb appeal and makes everything look fresh and new. White is a favorite for kitchen cabinets and grey comes in a close second. We’re also seeing more mixing of colors and materials.
