When it comes down to it, your home’s interior design has to fit your style and taste. Use these trends as a guideline to plan and begin a home renovation. If you’re thinking about selling your home soon, recognize that homebuyers will be looking for homes with some, or all, of these features and plan accordingly. Start with rooms that get the most use, such as your kitchen, bathroom or living room, for the biggest ROI.
