2020 was the year of DIY projects. Maybe you learned to knit a blanket, painted an accent wall, or made an end table from scratch. But perhaps something’s still missing.
As you continue to work from home, you may realize it’s time for a bigger upgrade. We’re not saying you should go out and buy a new house, but there are multiple renovation projects you can tackle to make your home feel brand new.
Let’s explore some of the most popular renovation trends in 2021 and how they can add value and excitement to your home.
Bedroom or Bathroom Expansion
After being stuck inside for a year straight, you may have stared at the walls of your bedroom or bathroom and wished you had more space. One of the most popular renovation trends in 2021 is expansion because people want just a bit more room in their rooms.
Whether you want to add square footage to your master bathroom so you can have a separate bath and shower or to your bedroom to fit a king-sized bed and a desk, if you have the ability to expand, we can help you make it happen.
Converting a Closet to an Office or Half-Bathroom
If you have an extra closet in the house that you aren’t sure what to do with, you can transform it into an office or a half bathroom. This can significantly add value to your home because it’s another space to do business (in one way or another).
Walk-in closets are inherently more suited to an office conversion because you’ll have more space to fit a desk, while smaller closets are ideal for installing a toilet and a sink.
Renovating the Backyard
Think outside the house and reimagine the landscape of your backyard. Being outside at home has become a major trend in 2021, and having a cozy outdoor space to expand your living for gatherings can increase the value of your home.
Backyard renovations can take the form of an outdoor kitchen, a deck or patio, a garden area, new fencing or light fixtures, or even a fire pit. The world is your oyster, and the possibilities are endless when it comes to creating an outdoor oasis only a few steps from your back door.
Converting the Garage
Garages have made a massive comeback over the last year as people have made the most of their homes. You can upgrade your garage to another living area or convert your garage completely into an office, gym or extension of another room. Anytime you increase the liveable square footage of your home you add value to it.
Adding a Home Gym
Gym memberships are so 2019. If you have an unused room or garage like we mentioned above, you can transform it into a home gym where you can get your sweat on and hop into the shower as soon as you’re done. Home gyms have become increasingly popular over the last year, and you can create your gym to fit your personal fitness goals.
Whether you want to add a treadmill, weight rack, or anything in between, you can consider new floors to support calisthenics and heavyweights. Or, if you’re interested in suspension training, you can talk to a contractor about bolstering the walls to support the installation of a TRX system at home.
Soundproofing a Room (or Rooms)
Maybe 2020 was the year you finally decided to learn how to play the drums, or your child took up the tuba. Or, now that you work from home, it’s hard to isolate yourself from the volume of the rest of the house. In this case, soundproofing a room or two may be the way to go.
While it’s not the most glamorous renovation you can make, it can help you create a sanctuary for work, relaxation, or creativity. Cut out the noise of the dog barking, the vacuum running, and children screaming so you can focus on what makes your heart happy.
