Remodeling your home gives you the opportunity to bring your space up to date without having to purchase an entirely new home. While being able to update your space is very exciting, it doesn’t hurt to take a look at what’s popular and on the rise in today’s remodeling market to get a better idea of what you might want to add to your home during its remodel. Here are our top five predicted remodeling trends for 2020:
1) Smart home features
Smart home features are extremely popular with today’s home remodels. In a world where almost everything in our lives is activated by touch or voice, why should our homes be any different? In many kitchen remodels, homeowners are opting for features like smart sinks. With the touch of your hand, the water will turn on and off or adjust to hot or cold. Today’s homeowners want their homes to be as accessible and user friendly as possible. It’s no wonder so many are adding smart home features during their remodels such as smart lighting, robotic devices that make cleaning easier and unmonitored security systems.
2) The destination tub
With bathroom remodels, many people are opting for the destination tub. Typically, it’s a free-standing tub in the middle or off to the side of the bathroom to make it seem like an exclusive and private retreat. Many homeowners are opting to remove their tubs entirely! Contemporary design popularity is also on the rise for bathroom remodels, as is increasing your bathroom’s size if possible.
3) Home wellness
In 2020, you can expect to see a rise in home wellness improvements during renovations. These include but are not limited to non-toxic materials being used during the remodeling process, water and air purification systems and circadian lighting to improve sleep.
4) Climate proofing
Many millennial homeowners have turned their remodeling efforts toward “climate proofing”. With a concerned eye on climate change and the effects extreme weather patterns have had on their homes, many are investing in home improvements that will help make their homes “disaster resistant”.
5) Saving money is the focus
For a lot of millennial homeowners, saving money is a focus during their remodel. They have a budget and they plan to stick to it – and for good reason! While remodeling projects won’t cease entirely, contractors can expect homeowners to be more cognizant of their spending and opt for features that will save them money down the road such as energy-efficient lighting, home insulation and improved roofing.
