Top 5 Predictions for Remodeling in 2013

Top five remodeling trends.

At Portland Remodel we are very optimistic about 2013 in the remodeling industry. Here is what  we predict from all the buzz that we have seen and heard in the industry…


1. Kitchen Remodels – The heart of the home is beating strong once again. Kitchen Remodeling is on the rise. Everything from functional to luxurious remodels that offer the best in quality and a truly high-end look.

2. Room Additions – Many families have spent more time at home these past few years with   tighter budgets. And guess what –there is no place like home. At Portland Remodel we
expect to see    more room additions like that bonus room or expanding the family room.

3. Master Bathroom Upgrade – January tends to bring a rise in bathroom remodeling. These cold winter months remind us how awesome it would be to that Jacuzzi tub, towel warmers, and those heated floors. In other rooms why not have your own indoor spa?  2013 will be a great year for bathroom remodels.

4. Whole House Remodels – After the holidays did you realize yet again that you just don’t have room for all those friends and family members? At Portland Remodel we specialize in repurposing existing spaces and creating new and better storage areas. Just rearranging an existing floor plan can make so much more room.

5. Built – in Cabinetry – Portland Remodel predicts lots of custom cabinet units of all types in 2013. New entertainment units with surround sound will be the top of the list for the great room. We work with the best custom cabinet builders in the Portland metro area.
