Color & Style For 2013

The Latest Looks You’ll Love for 2013



Ok, the latest: Which design trends are interior decorators seeing as the “next big thing” for 2013? Manufacturers like Kohler, Moen and American Standard have lots of products to choose from to enhance all your remodel and Universal Design selections. Chevron patterns, glass backsplashes and retractable towel rings are just a few making their way into the latest remodels. Be sure that you keep in mind that as much as you may want to incorporate the latest design trends in your home, it’s important to choose ideas that are practical and will stand the test of time. On the left and right of this Design colors and styles for 2013, please note the hot colors that are in. Please note that Kohler has a special palette of colors for this coming year in products available for the kitchen and baths. Let’s get ready to Remodel!!!!

Here are some suggestions on the freshest finds out there.

The time for bold, yet neutral Chevron has come! This pattern is showing up everywhere: on kitchen walls, backsplashes, floors, throw rugs, pillows and shower curtains. Most Chevron patterns alternate black then white then black, but by playing around with alternative colors, you can lessen the impact of the design and achieve a more serene look. Do you really love wallpaper? Guess what, a surprising look involves the resurgence of wallpaper and the introduction of wall decals. Since the 60s, people have been using wallpaper to add an accent and some personality to a room. Both wallpaper and wall decals are now removable and a popular option to spice up your home.

When it comes to spicing up your kitchen, you are going to find that creative and beautiful backsplashes are a great way to go for a new clean and bold visual in the new kitchen this year in 2013… Large, back-painted glass panels require no grout and are one of the hottest looks right now. In the past, backsplashes were a purely functional surface that protected a kitchen or bathroom’s walls from sprays and splatters; but today, they’re an easy and attractive upgrade.

If you’re looking for a convenient and eco-friendly upgrade, consider Moen’s MotionSense faucet. With just a wave of your hand, you’ll trigger the flow of water. Wave your hand again, and you’ll turn it off. Its state-of-the-art technology helps to maximize performance, minimize waste and make everyday routines faster and easier.


For another green option in the kitchen, check out the many advantages of bamboo flooring. It’s easy to clean, ideal for allergy sufferers and long-lasting. Environmentally friendly (a quickly renewable crop), it has extremely low formaldehyde emissions and makes an excellent floor for a healthy home.

Head to the bathroom for a smart innovation that’s quickly growing in popularity: Moen’s Retractable Towel Ring. If you’re tired of hand towels cluttering countertops, doorknobs and floors, this is your solution. The ring secures your hand towels in place, expands out to 11″ and effortlessly retracts back to its original position. It works well in every room with a faucet, including the bathroom, kitchen, utility room and garage.

Rounding out our list of updates is the new nature-inspired bathroom. Think rustic tiles. A rock wall in the shower. Wicker baskets. A range of earthy patterns and colors. They’re all designed to achieve the feeling of a relaxing, private spa. It’s easy to create a beautiful room that feels like you’re entering an enchanted grotto or canyon.

These ideas represent just a few of the trends that are destined to become traditions. Here at Action Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning and Electric, Inc. we trust that you can feel confident knowing that as current as they are, these improvements will easily stay in vogue for years to come.
