Meadows Mountain Realty, Highlands NC real estate

Remodeling Highlands NC homes can benefit from combining the old with the new, melding traditional elements with a modern design. While old and new may not seem complementary, a nod to the past combined with a glimpse of the future can create a comfortable and attractive environment. If you are considering remodeling your home, regardless of whether it is for you or for resale value, talk to your Highlands NC REALTOR for recommendations for reputable local designers.

Kitchen, a great place to start

A kitchen is an excellent place for a modern upgrade. Clean lines, sleek finishes, and new appliances can include both modern and traditional vibes. A traditional feel could be from a wood accent, perhaps barn wood siding on an island. Cabinet knobs or drawer pulls can also be reminiscent of the past as can other fittings and or fixtures. Another blast from the past can come from appliances. An oven can appear antique in design but perform as a modern luxury appliance.

Decor can be mixed

Furniture and fabrics can add an element of tradition to an otherwise modern space. This is a great way to add warmth and charm as well as add character to an otherwise stark room. Clean lines and simplicity are some of the nicest aspects of modern design but sometimes a little homage to the past can add a boot of character and personality to an otherwise blank slate. A Highlands NC designer can help a home showcase the personality of its owners and create a unique mountain getaway that embraces the area and lifestyle.
