An updated, stylish kitchen is said to improve a homes value and its odds for quick resale. At the same time, its helpful if a listing is something of a blank slate. “Its critical that a prospective buyer see themselves in the space—or at least be able to see the possibility of that,” says John Nations, construction manager for New Pointe Communities, a custom residential developer in San Diego. But design trends change regularly, making whats considered fashionable today possibly passé tomorrow. Some of us can remember when backsplashes were routinely decorated with tiles depicting fruit-filled cornucopias, but few buyers can see themselves prepping dinners or entertaining within such a space today. Same goes for dark wood kitchens with beams dangling with rustic baskets: Once cozy and romantic, theyre now looked upon as outdated and claustrophobic.
The couple furnished a room down the hall from all the family bedrooms in their two-story, colonial-style home in Richmond, Va., as a pajama lounge. However, they call it their “lazy room.” Says Petersik: “It works for us with tons of cabinetry for storage, window seat, and three chair lounges pushed together. A lot of people like to use updated bean-bag chairs.” Instead of spending evenings there, however, the family gathers in the morning before heading downstairs. Petersik says the timing doesnt change their casual dress code. “Were still in our PJs,” she says. Ceilings have long reflected architectural, economic, and other influences of the day. In early American homes, low ceilings were favored to keep spaces warm, even if they made them feel a bit claustrophobic. During the Victorian era, high ceilings—at least nine feet high and often higher—were embellished, integrating handcrafted cast-plaster ornaments, stencilling, and other decorative treatments.
