Everyone’s home is special and unique to them, but there is no denying that some homes are more unique-looking than others. If you are after a more individual and distinct look, check out some bathroom and kitchen remodel ideas as well as some unique home design suggestions that will make your home stand out from the rest crowd.

Lounge Style Kitchen

Instead of the traditional dining room table and chairs, an emerging trend is the use of lounge style or retro diner furniture. These styles differentiate your living and eating areas, giving them a fresh and fashionable look.

Two-Tone Cabinets

Cabinets all have to be the same finish or color, right? Not necessarily. There’s nothing wrong with having all your cabinets the same. However, if you want a bold look that catches the eye, consider using a different finish or color for the upper and lower cabinets to make your kitchen pop.

Wood Floors and Ceilings

Having both wood floors and wood ceilings, or ceilings accented with wood beams, can work very well if you have a large cavernous space. You can easily make the open area of a medium to large home feel like an enormous Gothic mansion in this way. It can also work in smaller areas too to give a cottage feel.

Soapstone Countertops

For a quirky look, soapstone is well worth looking into for your countertop needs. Soapstone comes in a variety of greens, grays, and blacks too, instantly giving your home an old-world charm.

Get Imaginative With Carpeting

In most homes, wall to wall carpet is pretty straightforward: a solid, often beige, tone that covers everything. However, it doesn’t have to be this way. You can carpet stairs with keeping some of the wood still exposed using stair rods for an exquisite look. Don’t be afraid of bright colors and bold patterns that will also work well. You can also mix carpeting and exposed wood throughout the rest of your home to make it look updated and unique.

Custom Cabinet Hardware

Even something as simple as the choice of cabinet hardware you make can have a tremendous effect on the look and uniqueness of your kitchen. Consider new and more modern knobs, pulls, and handles in addition to the more common choices.
