10 Home Remodeling Trends We Love

Discover the latest trends in exterior and interior home remodeling.

Home automation is one of the latest trends in home remodeling.

The home remodeling industry is buzzing with many new trends that can help you increase the beauty, comfort, efficiency, and value of your home. In honor of Valentine’s Day, we’ve compiled a list of exterior and interior trends we love. These ideas can inspire you to turn your home into a space can appreciate all over again.

  1. Home automation

Many homeowners are embracing the "smart" home trend to make their life easier and more comfortable. With features such as Wi-Fi-connected thermostats, security cameras, carbon monoxide detectors, audio-video components, and automated window coverings, home automation is becoming the future of home remodeling updates.

  1. Luxury laundry rooms

Although homeowners don’t gather in their laundry room, they do spend a lot of time in it. In recent years, luxury laundry rooms have replaced dark, dull ones. To turn your laundry room into a more luxurious place, add glamorous ceiling lighting, quartz countertops, a colorful tile backsplash, elegant stone flooring, and a plush area rug. With a beautiful and luxurious laundry room in your home, you’ll find doing laundry to be less of a chore.

  1. Home additions

Rather than selling their home and buying a bigger and better one, many homeowners have decided to opt for a beautiful and functional home addition. Whether you are longing for a home office or large master bedroom suite, a home addition can turn your current home into your dream home. A home addition can offer many benefits, including adding more value to your home, and is a particularly good option if you are happy with your current location and neighborhood.

The choice to make your home more energy efficient never goes out of style. While eco-friendly materials and supplies are one of the latest trends in home remodeling, you can also boost energy efficiency with other projects around your home, including replacing your windows and roof, upgrading to ENERGY STAR-certified appliances, and installing low-flow plumbing fixtures.
