With more time spent at home, it’s no surprise that home improvement spending is up $72 billion according to a recent report which found that 61% of homeowners had taken on a home upgrade project since March 2020. If your home isn’t meeting your current lifestyle needs, now may be the perfect time to update your space. Check out these hot home renovation trends and get inspired for a fresh start in 2021.
Create a Zen-like Vibe with a Home Spa
Bring the spa home with a bathroom update. A fresh coat of paint in a tranquil hue is an easy DIY upgrade, while new additions like a freestanding tub, rainshower or even a bidet will help you create an inspiring oasis for the ultimate relaxation.
Lighting Makes All the Difference
Replacing or adding windows not only enhances lighting, but also improves energy efficiency. It doesn’t stop at natural light either, with many homeowners replacing outdated sconces, chandeliers and backlighting with modern fixtures are sure to wow.
Repurpose Rooms to Suit Your New Lifestyle
Turning a spare bedroom or nook into a cozy home office is critical in today’s work-from-home environment, but many homeowners are looking for ways to make their spaces more productive. Finishing a basement may offer additional room for a home theater, gym or even a dedicated classroom space perfect for at-home learning.
Make Your Kitchen Work for You
A kitchen renovation is a surefire way to improve your home’s value at resale, with a mid-range remodel helping homeowners recoup about 77.6% of their out of pocket costs. Another perk—you’ll be able to enjoy your newly refreshed space to explore your home chef dreams. Modern countertops, upgraded fixtures, refinished cabinetry and spacious island additions rank at the top of homeowners’ must-have lists.
Embrace Indoor-Outdoor Living
Comfortable outdoor spaces are more important and popular than ever. Sliding and folding glass doors create seamless indoor-outdoor living, while in- or above-ground pools are sure to make your home the number one destination all summer long. Adding or expanding your deck allows for added square footage while adding to your resale value.
