Home Updates to Consider
Making your home more comfortable is key for 2021. Most of us will spend more time at home and will need to make some adjustments to overused spaces.
Before hiring a contractor to help plan and design your future renovations, decide what your family needs are for the immediate future. Also, it’s beneficial to implement remodeling projects that will benefit you when reselling your home.
If you’re planning a home improvement project, here are some popular trends to consider for your 2021 home renovations.
Green building is on the rise. Many companies now specialize in designing green homes that can cut energy costs by offering energy-efficient windows and appliances. Choosing to renovate your home design with this goal in mind will make your home more attractive and help you save costs on energy bills. When hiring a contractor, make sure they have experience in building green homes.
2. Large Windows
Large windows bring in more natural light which makes any room look bigger. This window trend can be done with different materials, sizes, and types. There are plenty of windows on the market to suit every architectural style.
New windows can increase your home’s value, bring a sense of enhanced home security, and improve energy efficiency. It’s best to have all windows properly installed by a reputable contractor.
3. Two-Toned Kitchen Cabinets
The kitchen is the heart of the home and is always an exciting room to renovate. Change up the color of your kitchen with two-toned cabinets. This is usually done with the upper cabinets painted a light color and the lower cabinets a dark color. Painting your cabinets in two different colors will surely break the monotony of the space, allowing you to create a unique look to your home.
Other kitchen upgrades include larger kitchen islands, and renovations that increase functionality and offer better storage solutions.
4. Home Office
Having a room dedicated as a home office is a big bonus now that many people are working from home. A dedicated home office space makes it easier for those who work from home to concentrate and separate work life from home life.
5. Updated Laundry Room
Laundry rooms are traditionally one of the least exciting areas of the home, but not anymore. Homeowners are making laundry rooms fun and full of color. This makes doing laundry more pleasant when you have an organized space that’s enjoyable to be in. There are many storage and organizational solutions to make doing laundry quick and easy.
6. Home Gym
With more people spending time at home, it’s no surprise that home gyms are becoming more popular. Many homeowners were unwilling or unable to go to a gym for most of 2020. This has led to virtual workouts at home.
With an increase in fitness equipment sales, treadmills and stationary bikes need a designated space to be used and stored. You can renovate the basement or an extra bedroom into a lively and functional fitness room that can be used by the entire family.
7. Closed Floor Plans
With parents working from home along with their children being virtually schooled, many families realize that an open floor plan does not work for them anymore. The need for more privacy, doors, and noise control have homeowners changing the layout of their home. Separate spaces may be needed.
8. Outdoor Living
Spending more time at home means creating comfortable spaces for families to enjoy. A popular trend that will continue is an outdoor living space that is an extension of the indoors.
Screened-in porches help keep bugs out and relaxation in. There are many ways to decorate and use an outdoor living area. It can include cozy seating areas, unique lighting, and even an outdoor bar.
