Trending Remodeling Ideas for 2023

Color Trends for Cabinets

Greens and blues continue to dominate kitchen cabinet colors for 2024. These are excellent selections for anyone interested in cabinets that depart from traditional stained wood or neutral kitchen cabinets. In fact, we’ve seen the color saturation trend upward when New Hampshire homeowners select colors for their kitchen cabinets. Consider a deep cerulean where you might have once favored robin’s egg to capture the trendiest cabinets for your 2024 kitchen remodel. You may even attempt a more extensive foray into color with bathroom cabinets paying homage to some of the bold and warm colors of the year award winners like Peach Fuzz (Pantone) or Blue Nova (Benjamin Moore). 

Backsplash Remodeling Ideas

Subway tiles never really go out of style. You can never go wrong with classic rectangles and squares. But classic backsplashes aren't the only option for a timeless and trendy kitchen workspace.

Backsplash Remodeling Ideas for 2023 in Seacoast, NH

Backsplash into Tile Countertops

Tiles have come a long way since their last heyday in the 90s. Counter tiles are a viable single-surface alternative and provide a stylish option when combined with a thoughtful tile backsplash. Continue the pattern or contrast with a different backsplash, depending on your style.

Accent Mosaic

2024 welcomes large celebrations of warm color. Your kitchen is the heart of your home, turn up the passion with a warm and vivid backsplash mosaic accent in your kitchen or bathroom.

Play with Color, Shape, Finish, or Pattern

Use fan-shaped tiles, dance with arabesque, or add backsplash interest with a unique tile shape or color to advertise your taste in your bespoke kitchen. Glossy tiles are trending this year, which is another way to dial up the drama and show off your style.

Unique Backsplash Material Ideas

Glass tiles are becoming increasingly popular. Whereas most backsplash tiles have traditionally been ceramic or porcelain, consider mixed materials, metal backsplash tiles, or large-format stone backsplash tile to give your backsplash something extra. 

Trends in Home Technology

Smart home technology improves our daily routines and eliminates inconveniences. Here are some of the trending areas for incorporating smart technology when remodeling a home.


Whole home security kits, panic buttons, remotely-activated locks and lights, surveillance cameras, and more. Protect your investment and monitor your home while you are away.

Efficiency and Automation

Heat your stove burners to a precise temperature, run an elaborate schedule on your smart thermostat to stay comfortable when you’re home and eco-conscious when you’re not, or set your dinner to begin to cook at just the right time. Orchestrating an electronic symphony of home automation convenience can be extremely satisfying. Eliminating the friction of these mundane tasks can make a huge difference in your daily experience.


Enjoy Bluetooth speakers in your primary suite and walk-in closet for a fully-immersive experience. Add discreet television screens to keep you entertained while cooking or preparing for the day. Program your favorite routines into your smart hub to set the right mood with ease.

Earthy and Warm Tones

Rich, warm taupes, blush-tinted neutrals, daring corals, oranges, pinks, and reds. 2024 is bursting onto the scene like a beautiful sunrise.

Gentle Curves

Harsh angles are replaced by curves and slopes for 2024. Look for arched doorways and windows and rounded edges on surfaces and furniture.

Spa-Like Spaces

Serene spaces built for ultimate relaxation are still in for 2024. Use large-format stone tile, luxurious faucets, and fixtures, and include plenty of storage to alleviate clutter. Incorporate plants and natural materials to capitalize on multiple understated trends for 2024 at once.

Remodeling for Universal Design

Design solutions for aging in place are in increasing demand for projects scheduled into 2024 and beyond. Remodeling for universal design focuses on creating places that are easy to navigate and operate from a wheelchair or with other mobility limitations that frequently accompany aging.

Custom Cabinets

Custom cabinets are an essential piece of the puzzle to craft a home that is uniquely yours. Oxland Builders partners with a premium cabinetry maker Crystal Cabinets to bring you exactly what you are looking for. These are crucial to creating an accessible kitchen, including convenient pull-outs, easy-grip pulls, and soft-close hinges.

Lower Countertops

Countertops at lower levels create workspaces for seated people or people in wheelchairs. Microwaves and hot surfaces on lower levels can be safely operated without requiring a risky reach.

Zero-Barrier Shower and Transitions

Reduce trip hazards and create wheel-chair-friendly spaces by creating a single first-floor level without step-up or step-down transitions. Create an ample walk-in shower that can also accommodate a wheelchair.

Extra-Wide Doorway

Extra wide doorways, hallways, and a layout built to accommodate a wheelchair’s turn radius create additional ease if circumstances change.
