As we close another year of working with great clients and completing lots of remodeling projects, we thought it might be fun to create our own list of the top 5 remodeling selections we saw this year.

So, without further ado, here's our list of the Top 5 Remodeling Selections for 2015!
Every year, Houzz, an online interior design and remodeling community, surveys their users who have recently completed or are planning a home project to learn more about trends and motivations behind specific renovation types.

Once upon a time, laundry areas could only be found hidden in the basement or tucked inside a hall closet. That’s all changed in today’s homes.

Positioning the room close to bedrooms has become a very popular request and finishes are oftentimes just as nice as those used in the kitchen or master bathrooms.
