Renovation & Refresh in GreenfieldTransitional Kitchen
What Houzz contributors are saying:
4. The Two-Tone TouchThis modest-size kitchen in Pittsburgh glows with soft style. Designed by You-Neek Designs and built by Prime 1 Builders, it features two-tone cabinets (Jasper Stone for the lowers and Mindful Gray for the uppers, both by Sherwin-Williams) and two backsplash designs, one of which surrounds the windows for variety.
Only 6 of the Top 50 Metros Experienced Renovation Spend IncreasesThe Houzz & Home report also tracks median renovation spending amounts in the largest (in terms of population) 50 metropolitan areas in the U.S. Spending was highest in the greater metro areas of San Jose and San Francisco, California ($25,000 each), and lowest in Buffalo, New York; Cincinnati and Cleveland, Ohio; Nashville, Tennessee; Oklahoma City; Orlando, Florida; and Raleigh, North Carolina ($10,000 each). Last year only six of the 50 metros had a year-over-year increase in median spending amounts on home renovations. That’s notably fewer cities than during the previous two years: In 2017, 12 metro areas saw year-over-year increases, while in 2016, 16 metros did. And in fact, in 2018 half (25) of the metro areas Houzz tracks experienced a drop in median renovation spending amount. These changes are likely due to a shift to smaller projects for renovating homeowners compared to prior years. “We are moving into an economic cycle with a more moderate rate of growth relative to before,” says Nino Sitchinava, Houzz’s principal economist.
