We’ve gathered a few home renovation trends for you to put on your 2017 to do list!
Open concept kitchens
This isn’t a new trend, but it’s still high up on the list for 2017 renovations. Opening up the space connects the chef to the rest of the family. Tearing down the dividing wall will not only make you feel like there’s more space, but can also allow natural light to filter further into your home. Adding a kitchen island creates a household hub and makes spending time together easier. It opens the sightlines to the rest of the home and connects your living spaces.
Many home owners are choosing to stay and renovate over selling, and they are inspired to use every possible inch of their home. Attics can be very interesting and cozy spaces, perfect for a bedroom or an added family area. It’s a great space to get creative with your design choices and have fun.
Organizing homes and creating storage is high on most people’s home renovation lists. Creating a functional and efficient laundry room, mud room, or “drop zone” can help calm the clutter. We’re seeing a big trend in homeowners willing to invest money into these spaces to gain more storage and help organize their families.
These days, technology influences just about every part of our lives, and our homes are no different. When you start planning for your renovation, you need to consider adding home automation onto your must have list. You can now remotely control things like clocks, speakers, lights, doors, door bells, cameras, windows, window blinds, hot water heaters, appliances, cooking utensils, to name a few.
Aging in Place Renovation and Additions
As the population ages, we’re seeing a lot of accessibility modifications made to homes. People want to stay in their homes longer and ease of access is key. Projects like smoother transitions from room to room, and installing walk in showers with seating, are becoming popular.
Granny flats or secondary suites are also a growing trend. Building a self-contained space in your home for aging parents can help with independent living issues.
