Home Renovation Trends 2018
Whether you are designing your new home or wanting to update your current one, there are some trends to consider for the coming year which can make your home more marketable in the future!
- Accommodations for Multiple Generations- extended family members are moving in, all under one roof and one trend 2018 is seeing is accommodations for multiple generations. Think, a granny pod but in your home. Like a basement complete with a second kitchen. Or even a second bedroom on the main floor to accommodate aging parents.
- Wider doorways and hallways- these wider spaces can accommodate wheel chairs and scooters. This trend is due to many seniors choosing to age in their own home. Another consideration is a pocket door instead of a swinging door which may be more difficult to operate.
- Roof Decks- these are not just for apartment buildings anymore! They are becoming a hot item for residential homes by offering an alternative to the traditional deck and patio option.
- Tankless water heaters- these little guys take up less space than traditional water heaters and they provide hot water only as needed which cuts down on cost and energy consumption!
