Any good forums/websites to ask about "what's in" for Remodeling?


I absolutely do not like making decisions regarding design, what's in style, etc. I'm more the type that could live in a cardboard box and be okay. But I am in the middle of doing some remodeling right now and since I'm going to be selling my place in a few years I need it to appeal to the new buyers and I don't know anything about interior design.

Does anyone know of any good forums where one can post pictures and get advice regarding interior design for remodels? Diychatroom is an amazing forum, just don't want to post all my design questions here when most of the forum is dedicated to helping with structure/function of things.

I think the biggest mistake anyone can make is trying to go with 'What's in'.

What ever is 'in' now, will be 'out' in a few more years. What was 'out' a few years ago will soon be in. One exception....Shag carpeting. I doubt that will ever be 'in' again.

A lot of what is 'in' has evolved as a result of improvements in materials and desires for better building efficiencies.

People installed carpet because it was no so easy to refinish those old hardwood floors and carpet was a bit warmer in the winter. Now we have engineered flooring that is very robust and doesn't trap dirt like carpet.

If anything is 'in', it's more open layouts and better use of space. People realize that the kitchen is very much a central point of socialization. No longer is it the 'woman's place'.....it's everyone's place.

Don't worry about what is 'in'....do what you like. You are the one living there.

If you want idea's....try the Houzz web site. Lots of pics...but no info on how to do it. That is what this site is for.

Thanks for the information, Houzz seems to be a great place for me to get some ideas from. And I unfortunately can't remodel it to my taste since my parents are the owners of my condo (I rent from them) and I'm just helping them get it ready so they can sell it in the future. If it were my own place, I honestly wouldn't be too worried about it but since it's my parents money and property I have to put in a little extra work to do the remodel correctly so it's ready for market.
