There are positive signs for the US Remodeling Industry this year. The Remodeling Market Index (RMI) component that evaluates current market conditions, increased to 48.4 from 43.0 in the fourth quarter of 2011. Also, the RMI component which determines the future market situations increased from 40.4 to 44.8 in the fourth quarter of 2011.
Soon after the RMI showed the highest rise in five years at the end of 2011, the press conference at the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) International Builders' Show (IBS) in Orlando, Florida, revealed that in line with this growth of RMI, the residential remodeling market would also continue to grow by about 8.9 percent in 2012.
The key driver of the remodeling industry is the sentiment in home owners to remain in their homes instead of moving to different infrastructure. Also, economic recovery, energy efficient upgrade practices, aging-in-place retrofits and the trend of reinvesting back into the old properties is recently driving the remodeling industry fast. Apart from this, efforts of NAHB to fulfill financial requirements from remodeling assignments, and addressing their equity issues have also been encouraging the remodeling industry. The behavior of the Housing industry would also have an impact on the growth of the Remodeling industry.
Hope the homeowners get the best of their money!

Christmas is around the corner! A happy and fun season for all, though many homeowners stress about how to decorate their homes and what ideas to use while home decorating. The following are some easy ideas that will help while home decorating. Holiday home decorating trends this year focus on natural pieces such as driftwood and a winter wonderland look. The mantel is usually one of the most difficult areas of home decorating. The traditional tendency of setting up a garland and candle holders at the mantle is not a bad home decorating idea, but those that are looking for something innovative should look at the mantle from a different vantage point. Hanging something from the ceiling above the mantle is a home decorating tip that mixes things up pretty well. A lot of people tend to use small lighted trees during their home decorating endeavours so as to make their home entrance seem more festive. A unique and different home decorating idea would be to fill an urn or large pot with lighted branches. The holiday chandelier is another home decorating idea that can typically be constructed using items one already has at home, this is perfect for those special Christmas ornaments that tend to get lost on the tree.
