Emerging Remodel Trends

Home remodelling trends are continually evolving, reflecting changes in design aesthetics, technology, and lifestyle preferences. As of my last knowledge update in September 2021, here are five emerging remodelling trends that were gaining popularity, but please note that the trends may have evolved further since then:

1. Home Office Spaces:

  • With the rise of remote work, homeowners were increasingly looking to create dedicated home office spaces. This trend involved converting spare rooms, nooks, or even closets into functional workspaces with ergonomic furniture and technology integration.

2. Outdoor Living Spaces:

  • Outdoor living spaces, including decks, patios, and backyard kitchens, were becoming extensions of the indoor living areas. People were investing in outdoor furniture, fire pits, and landscaping to create comfortable and inviting outdoor retreats.

3. Smart Home Technology:

  • Integrating smart home technology was a growing trend. Homeowners were installing systems for controlling lighting, thermostats, security, and entertainment through smartphones and voice commands. Smart appliances and energy-efficient features were also in demand.

4. Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Remodelling:

  • There was a heightened interest in sustainable and eco-friendly remodelling practices. This involved using recycled or sustainable materials, installing energy-efficient windows and appliances, and incorporating green building practices to reduce the environmental footprint of renovations.

5. Open Concept Living:

  • Open floor plans continued to be popular, emphasizing spacious and airy living spaces. This trend often involved knocking down walls to create fluid connections between the kitchen, dining, and living areas. However, it's worth noting that some homeowners were also exploring flexible layouts that allowed for more privacy when needed.

Please keep in mind that remodelling trends can vary by region and personal preference. What's considered "emerging" in one area may already be established in another. To stay current with the latest remodelling trends, it's a good idea to consult with a local architect, designer, or contractor who can provide insights based on your specific location and needs. Additionally, following home design and renovation publications and attending home shows can also help you stay informed about the latest trends in home remodelling.
