6 Amazing Home Renovation Trends you don’t want to miss! While many people believe that new beginnings start when we ring in the new year, those familiar with real estate know that the real time for new beginnings is spring. As the snow melts away and buyers and sellers are getting geared up for making their big move, those who remain comfortable with their living arrangements may just be feeling an itch for change.
Fortunately, there are many ways to transform your home, and spring is the time to begin. With all the wonderful renovation trends we are seeing today, you can go from drab to fab in no time at all. Financing this home makeover can be done with tax refunds, savings, or for more costly renovations, you may even consider tapping into your home’s equity – just make sure the return on investment (ROI) is a good one. Your REALTOR(r) is a great source of advice on the best home renovations to make to increase the value of your home.
Here are some of the biggest and most exciting home renovations trends in 2022:
While white cabinets and kitchens have been favoured over the past years, new kitchen trends are making their way into the home. Today, homeowners are choosing to change things up with bold colours for their kitchen cabinetry, fully enjoying the addition of personal style into one of the most central rooms of the home.
Many people have taken a liking to working from home. While it was an adjustment in the beginning, most have gotten the hang of managing a good work-life balance, and feel more productive than ever within the walls of their own home. Instead of staying cramped up in multi-functional spaces, try converting a spare room into a fully functional office to make working from home even better.
One trend that has made a fantastic comeback over the years is wallpaper. Today, homeowners have been experimenting with bold wallpapers to add a little jazz to their small or rather lifeless spaces. Wallpapers have unique designs, patterns, and textures that work to really transform and invite joy in through home design.
With people staying indoors more than ever, many of us are craving more natural light. If your home is lacking in spaces where the sun can shine in, whether it’s due to a lack of or just poorly placed windows, consider having a contractor open up an exterior wall and place a new window for the sun to shine through.
Self care has taken on a whole new meaning over the past few years. Where we once thought of outside services such as massage or spa days to indulge in self care, at home practices have become the new norm. Now, a walk-in shower, double sink, LED mirrors, heated flooring, and soaker tubs or a jacuzzi are feeling a little more commonplace than ever before. Transforming your primary bathroom also has a high ROI, and the potential to attract buyers when it comes time to sell.
Enjoying your outdoor space is just as important as enjoying your indoor space. The backyard has so much potential to be the getaway you need, without having to pay a dime in travel costs. Add in a beautiful pergola, firepit, pool or hot tub, outdoor kitchen, and your backyard will be an attraction that your friends and family eagerly await an invite to attend.
With the variety of renovations that can transform your home, spending the money or tapping into your home equity will be an investment worth making. Your home is where you should feel your best, and it’s not too late to make it that way now. Map out your plan, call your contractor, and get started on your path to renewing your love for your home in 2022.
