Pendant lighting tastefully pulls together the cool grey theme of this kitchen.

As 2016 progresses, we are seeing trends in home upgrades that make the home more customized, intelligent, and sophisticated. Because these improvements to the home look great and make life easier, it’s likely that investing in one of these upgrades now will continue to pay off for years to come. Without further ado, here are the most useful home upgrades of 2016.

The Bathroom Getaway

More people are beginning to install luxurious, walk-in showers paired with separate bathtubs. This creates a bathroom that dotes on the comfort of the homeowner for a spa-like experience. A walk-in shower is also a smart installation for aging homeowners or those who live with aging parents. The ease of accessibility of a walk-in shower is what makes this upgrade a lifelong asset to the home.

Statement Pendant Lighting

Chandeliers have long been the statement lighting of choice, but pendant lights are giving them a run for their money. More people are making home upgrades that utilize gorgeous and unique pendant lighting in their kitchen design. Not only does pendant lighting serve as a pleasing centerpiece in the kitchen, it also serves the practical function of providing lighting for the kitchen. You can choose pendant lights that dim for soft mood lighting during dinner and bright light for when kids are sitting at the kitchen table to do their homework.

Grayscale Colors

Stark, surgical white has been the color of choice for kitchens for the past several years. However, grey is making its way onto the scene because of its neutral tone and versatility. A light, airy grey works well to bring color to a stark white kitchen without overwhelming it. Likewise, a dark grey creates a moody tone that looks great for areas of less activity, like the dining room. Plus, grey matches well with any color that shares the same warm or cool tone!
