Bring the Outside In: Nature-Inspired Concepts for Home Remodeling

Environmental activist and Pulitzer Prize winner Gary Snyder once said, “Nature is not a place to visit. It is home.” For those seeking to bring the great outdoors inside, while skipping the dirt and pesky bugs, of course, call Indianapolis home remodeler Central Construction Group for the best solutions to incorporate subtle touches of natural beauty throughout your home.

Neutral Color Schemes Add Natural Warmth

The 2022 Sherwin Williams Color Collection features many expertly coordinated neutral shades including cool grays such as Sweater Weather and Pussywillow or warmer tones like Llama Wool and Urban Jungle.

Lighter colors brighten any room and make it feel larger. Add a pop of color and texture with floral wallpaper. Large, vibrant patterns featuring blossoming flowers and fun foliage provide an easy way to incorporate nature’s beauty — without annoying allergens. 

Old Concepts Provide Natural Beauty

You’ve probably heard the expression “Out with the old, in with the new.” But what if the “old” was suddenly stylish?

Such is the case for many of today’s natural design elements, including those in the bathroom. Large, 3-inch-by-12-inch subway tiles with rough/worn edges provide a rustic yet modern appearance, as do barn-style sliding shower doors.

Flooring, Finishes and Fixtures

Consider installing luxury vinyl plank floors throughout your home. Made to look like real wood, this durable material is scratch resistant and softer underfoot.

Shaker cabinetry is still common, accentuated with thin rails and flat doors and drawers. Transitional styles are also very popular right now and include white cabinetry paired with oak islands.

For modern comfort and convenience, request under-cabinet electrical outlets for counter appliances like toasters, coffee pots, etc.

Simple backsplashes with glossy tiles come in many natural colors, or incorporate a crackle finish backsplash for a more unique appearance.

Black and silver finishes, or aged brass, are both popular options in today’s homes. In the kitchen, natural quartz tops are still on trend. Many homeowners opt for a marble look with thin veining, such as gray or cream, to soften a room’s overall appearance.
