Living Smaller

With the new year usually comes goals of living larger. For the past few years we’ve noticed a trend in going smaller when it comes to homes. Whether it’s a financial reason, to be energy efficient, or just to be happy with less; we are curious if this trend is going to continue through 2016.

This casual Hill Country cottage pours on the Southern charm with its familiar farmhouse form, picture-perfect proportions, and inviting front porch nestled beneath a curtain of large oak trees. The stone facade and metal roofing nod back to Fredericksburg's original German-style architecture. We'd love to kick up our feet and wind down our week in this soulful country home.:

There’s something special about a well designed home that leaves a smaller footprint. It can feel like a larger home by simply making it feel more open.

Getting creative with storage is another key. We all come with a certain amount of things that we aren’t really to let go of. Having creative storage spaces gives you more square footage.

This trend has taking over in 2015 and proved to provide more security, financial stability, and been beneficial to our economy. What do you think? Is 2016 going to continue living large in smaller homes?

Rent Rising? Roommate Musts.

Rent keeps rising, and with that comes a financial burden some can’t bear. Although buying a new home might not be on your mind, having a roommate in your newly purchased home or in your rented space is looking like a must have to get through this rise in price.

Remove upper cabinet doors to give a narrow kitchen a sense of openness. Then set off the revealed shelves with a decorative treatment. To do so, remove cabinet doors and fill in holes with wood filler. Sand until smooth, and paint or stain as desired. Apply your desired treatment to the inside after priming the interior walls.:

Shared spaces are hard to conquer, especially when you have been living on your own! Here are a few tips to help you get through the transition. Imagine cutting your belongings in half. All this storage space you have had before is now going to be shared. Be willing to split the space.

Decor Inspiration Ideas: Living Room | nousDECOR.com:

Be ready to mix styles. Each roommate comes with their own items and their own tastes. Each shared space should have a happy balance of each person. Be open to change and incorporating their items with yours.

Give your bedroom a tasteful dose of glam with a slightly shimmery wallpaper and clean neutral colors.:

Define personal spaces. When sharing a living space, it’s important to have your own individual space that you can escape to. Make this space feel like home to you.

5 tips for updating your bathroom with the Crate and Barrel Gift Registry on 100 Layer Cake:

Bathrooms can be the hardest to share! If you are sharing a bathroom make sure you have enough room. Double sinks is a major win when it comes to sharing a bathroom.

Go ahead and sit down with your new roommate and set up a plan. Work out a weekly/monthly cleaning schedule. Talk about what your daily routines are and find out theirs as well. The more you communicate, the better this transition will work out for both of you!

2016 Home Must Haves

As we are preparing for the holidays and the new year, we are trying to figure out what the new year will bring. New homes, new buyers, new trends, and new adventures await us! Here are some of the home must haves we think will be headed our way for 2016:

Dreamy spa-inspired bathrooms --> http://hg.tv/14ci3:

Spa like bathrooms! A getaway from the outside world or maybe even a getaway from the rest of the chores in the home. We see 2016 home buyers wanting a relaxing bathroom with light neutrals and luxury items.

light colored wood and white:

We think the bright white kitchen will still be in, but there will be a movement towards natural wood. It stays in the nice bright family but brings in a warmth that a kitchen deserves.

Gallerie B Friday's Favourites. Beautiful home office makeover by Sita Montgomery.:

The work from home trend is still on the rise! We see the importance of a home office rising and replacing a formal living room. It seems like home buyers are more interested in using every square footage of the home to the best of their abilities!

A DIY half wall bookcase @ThriftyDecorChick:

Open floor plans have been all the rage, but we see something different. We are predicting that 2016 will be a happy balance of open and walls. Not every room needs to be open, and there’s something comfortable about a dedicated space.

A pale blue door brightens this home's facade. More inexpensive ways to add curb appeal: http://www.bhg.com/home-improvement/exteriors/curb-appeal/curb-appeal-on-a-dime/?socsrc=bhgpin051513palebluedoor=2:

Last but not least, a higher expectation of curb appeal. Home maintenance is important and taking care of what we invest our money in is key. We also are coming into the generation that is coming back to the roots of taking care of neighbors and being close to those we surround ourselves with. Curb appeal helps the entire neighborhood.

What do you think 2016 will bring for new homeowners?

Renters Be Aware

With the rent rising and the popularity of renting still in it’s booming phase, it’s going to be a tough market to get the living space you are looking for.

There are a few smart tips to go into this market with that might be beneficial for you in this process. With the prices rises, it might be smart to consider sharing the rent.

If that’s not an option, know your rights! It’s important to know the rules for fees and deposits and to protect yourself from those landlords who aren’t as reliable or trustworthy.

Anticipate extra fees and costs. Expenses can rise with parking, insurance, and amenities. Never go to your maximum budget because there will always be something extra you aren’t taking into account for. If you are one of those lucky ones without any hidden fees, you’ll appreciate that extra income later on.

Be prepared to negotiate. Since renting is on it’s rise, the competition can get rough. Keep all your information needed for an application ready so there is no wasted time, and accept that you might be fighting with others for the same space.

Be willing to compromise. You are not going to get what you used to pay for.  Accept the fact that you might need to live with less and be reasonable. Renting is stressful enough, you don’t need any extra stress added onto it!

Be prepared. Be ready to negotiate. Be open to different possibilities.
