Home Remodeling Trends: What Should You Do?

Home Remodeling Trends

We expect to see an increase in remodeling projects throughout the year of 2017. While there have been various developments over the years, such as economic improvement and generational changes, that have helped to positively affect the market, we suspect that there will be some old-fashioned trends that will remain up-to-the-minute this year. Here are some remodeling trends that will be important and popular for 2017:

Universal Designs Driven by Generational Changes

With the Generation X and Baby Boomers getting older, they will see their family structures expanding in every direction. For some, they will move their aging parents into their homes so that it is easier to take care of them as they get older. For college graduates, they may move back into their parent’s homes and stay there for an extended time.

In either case, the space needs to be increased and improved. This leads to a universal design of which ease of use and accessibility are the primary focuses. With this type of design, bedrooms and bathrooms tend to be on the first floor so that climbing stairs isn’t a problem. Handrails and other assistive accessories are added and wider doorways are created so that wheelchairs can fit through.

Focusing on the Bathroom and Kitchen

When remodeling in the home, the bathroom and kitchen areas continue to remain two of the most popular areas to focus on. This may never change. While free-standing tubs are still popular with some homeowners, many people are turning toward large, spacious walk-in showers that offer a clean, sterile appearance. White and gray are two very popular colors to have in both the bathroom and kitchen, including flooring, cabinets, and subway tiles. Recently entering the residential market, luxury vinyl tile is also going to be popular this year. With the ability to look like wood or tile, it is thin, durable and price-competitive.

Quartz and Granite Countertops in the Kitchen

We continue to see homeowners wanting quartz countertops in their kitchens and we do not see this changing in the foreseeable future. While quartz is one of the more expensive countertop choices, there is an alternative option that is just as attractive: granite. Yes, there are still cheaper options, but they won’t hold up near as well. Granite is worth the investment.
