5 Most Popular Home Renovations
The number of homeowners completing home renovations has skyrocketed over the last 2 years. It could be due to the booming popularity of shows like HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” and “Property Brothers” or maybe homeowners are just sick of staring at a wallpaper decision they made after a brief vacation to Cabo in 2003. Either way, home renovations have never been more popular and here are the rooms getting the most love.
1. With the consumer tech industry taking off, more and more homeowners are finding it easier and cheaper than ever to upgrade their home’s tech. Security systems (like the ones offered by Ring), connected devices such as wi-fi enabled ovens or dishwashers, and devices that can detect leaks or temperature issues are at the top of consumer’s wish-lists this year.

2. Families who are unwilling to give up a home filled with memories are choosing to expand rather than move. Home additions are quickly picking up steam. “There are plenty of options when it comes to expanding, whether adding up, over or out. Either way, families can create space where it is lacking, whether that is a new master suite or larger kitchen and living space.” (Source: https://www.normandyremodeling.com/blog/top-5-home-remodeling-trends-2017)
3. We live in a time where it appears everybody is working harder than ever to get by. With everyone constantly on the go in makes sense that Master Suites are one of the most popular home renovations. People are spending a little extra to make sure they have the perfect place to relax and get ready for the next day’s grind.
4. Kitchens will remain the king of home renovations. Homeowners are beginning to move away from the all white kitchens, breaking them up with natural wood accents and statement pieces.
5. While the kitchen is king it’s actually mudrooms that are the most popular home renovation this year. They provide additional home storage in a very stylish way - leaving your home cleaner and much more welcoming. (Source: http://www.homeadvisor.com/r/home-remodeling-trends-2017/#.WZYsxtPys1g)
