Home Renovation Current Trends

Home enhancements continually change. It is important to know the current trends to increase your home&#39s value. Here is some information on home renovation current trends.

Integration of Technology

Technology is becoming a regular part of daily life. Be aware of this when configuring your floor plan. All rooms should contain a wall that accommodates a flat screen TV. Place cable and electrical outlets accordingly. Think about pre-wiring for surround sound too.

Extending Indoor Living Space

The exterior of your home is just as critical as the inside. Minimize the barrier between them to make your property feel bigger and maximize your living area. Allow for easy access to your backyard, especially from the kitchen. Upgrade the exterior space with a large deck, landscaping, or maybe an outdoor kitchen. Retaining privacy is also important to remember.

Green Building

Green building is more popular now than ever before. You may even notice properties marketed specifically for this. There are many different options, some big and some small. You may use energy efficient appliances, use less toxic materials, reclaim older building components to inject character to a newer house, and/or choose sustainable goods.

Open Layouts

Small disconnected rooms were once popular, but not any more. Open layouts are in higher demand. They are brighter and make a home appear bigger. Think about adding dramatic upgrades such as high ceilings, taller windows, or accent features like fireplaces.

More Home Renovation Current Trends

The above are just a few home renovation current trends. Speak to your builder for more ideas. Additionally, there are an abundance of online resources where you may find inspiration. Before finalizing your plans, you may want to request a real estate agent opinion on what features are most desirable to buyers and therefore would maximize your resale value.
