The Hottest Trends in Home Remodeling

Ryan Platzke

When it comes to remodeling your home, there are benefits you can’t ignore: remodeling boosts your home’s value, plus you’re one step nearer to having your dream house. 2017’s trendiest wave of home remodeling features enjoys a wide range: from upping your home’s profile using smart technology, to styling a backyard paradise and much more.

Explore the options below to learn about this year’s hottest home remodeling projects that will not only increase your home’s value, but will also give you plenty of reasons to stay in and relish your own private kingdom.

1.Curating Your Entry Area
In today’s social media landscape dominated by lifestyle bloggers and home décor gurus, design trends have a life of their own. That said, it’s no surprise wonder that design-minded entryway areas are prime to strike a fashionable first impression. Combine the functionality of the front hall—minimalist coat racks, funky doormats, and industrial chic shoe storage—doesn’t have to be completely utilitarian or uninteresting. There are plenty of design-conscious options in today’s stores that can help you express your taste at the front door, bringing the best of form and function to your home’s debut.

2.Introducing Smart Technology
Keeping your home up-to-date with emerging tech trends can add serious dollar value to your home, while making your space completely customizable. Products like smart thermostats and security options that sync right to your phone, to voice-activated refrigerators and in-wall home sensors that detect damage—the marketplace is revolving around new tech options. Homebuilders cheer water damage sensors, and a video-optimized doorbell instills a sense of security. Today’s smart appliances add a luxurious flare to your gourmet kitchen area, while living rooms and bedrooms with built-in Bluetooth speakers create an immersive ambiance.

3.The Luxury of a Bath Suite
Indulgent tubs and waterfall showers are all the rage across social media. Luxurious touches with character like a claw foot tub or a walk-in shower give spa finishes to a en suite bathroom. Though the typical shower/tub combination has dominated for its efficiency, homeowners relish value-adding lux amenities. Bathrooms are no longer considered an afterthought, and instead a true design opportunity. Sleek light fixtures, multiple jets and handheld options in a standing shower, or unique tiles and patterns rule the roost of today’s bathroom remodel trends.

Though trends inevitably shift over time, investing in your home through modern touches and considered renovations add steep value to your home’s bottom line. Remember these ideas mind to afford your home the personal, contemporary flair it deserves.
