What Bryan Baeumler wants to get rid of in homes
Bryan Baeumler bids farewell to traditional subway tiling alongside his Rock the Block competitor and host Ty Pennington to discuss home trends for Broker.com.
“Get rid of them,” the Battle on the Beach judge told the site. “We’re over it! You’re done.”
Subway tiles remain a good choice for kitchens and bathrooms backsplash.com calls it the “most popular” backsplash option of recent years. According to HGTV.com“The subway tile is, by definition, a rectangular, thick, low-fired, glazed ceramic tile, traditionally 3″ by 6″, although it comes in a variety of sizes for home use.”
Baeumler is among eight HGTV stars competing in teams of two in the fourth season of “Rock the Block.” In Berthoud, Colorado, each couple will renovate an identical 5,000-square-foot home with a budget of $250,000 and six weeks, hoping to achieve the highest final estimate. This was announced by HGTV in a press release. Each home was originally valued at $1.9 million, the announcement added.
This season’s competitors are Bryan and Sarah Baeumler from “Renovation Island”; Michel Smith Boyd and Anthony Elle of Luxe for Less; Jonathan Knight and Kristina Crestin of Farmhouse Fixer; and Page Turner and Mitch Glew of Fix My Flip.
Here are their take on other design trends:
Michel Smith Boyd & Page Turner are ready to move away from stainless steel appliances
Subway tiles aren’t the only thing that should be a thing of the past, according to real estate experts. Boyd and Turner agreed that they prefer other alternatives to stainless steel appliances Lowe called the “go-to” option for the last few decades. The hardware store favored the finish as “durable” and a “style chameleon”.
But as Boyd told Realtor.com, he’s “ready to move on.” When the outlet asked about alternatives, Turner exclaimed, “Black, white, pink!”
Page Turner is still a fan of open-concept floorplans
Turner is still a fan of open-concept floorplans, though Realtor.com points out that trend analysts say “buyers don’t prefer it anymore.” According to Better Homes and Gardensthe pandemic made it easier to return to a traditional layout with family members longing for their own space.
“All those dining rooms that you guys are trying to rebuild, they’re going to tear down the wall anyway, so I’m still open to that concept,” the Fix My Flip host told the site.
Ty Pennington calls white marble countertops ‘a little basic’
Realtor.com asked for opinions on white marble countertops, noting that they were a “point of contention” last season. According to HGTV.comthe worktop remains a “favorite of the design world” thanks to its “timeless appeal” and high-quality look. However, the website noted that since marble is porous, this can be a high-maintenance option where staining is a possibility.
Designers were divided, with Pennington telling Realtor.com, “It’s a little basic.” But as Sarah told the outlet, “Marble is safe.”
Knight added, “It has to be classic, not boring white.”
Season 4 of “Rock the Block” premiered on March 6, 2023. New episodes air every Monday at 9 p.m. Eastern and Pacific time on HGTV.
