Three Top Home Improvement Trends for 2015
June 9, 2015
It’s no secret that home improvement projects are increasingly popular in 2015. As the country veers out of the Recession, homeowners are looking to improve their homes not only because they have more money, but because it can ultimately help them make more money. Updating your home with modern design plans can help ensure not only a better selling price, but that, when you eventually sell your home, it doesn’t stay on the market for long.
So what are the top home improvement trends for 2015? Here are three important updates you can make to your home either now, or in the future.
- “Tiny House” Elements You may not want to move into a home the size of a garage. However, the general concepts behind tiny houses — which are gaining in popularity — are incredibly useful. Rooms, architecture and furniture that can serve dual purposes help to open up space without eliminating handy features. Loft bedding and convertible desks are two popular options.
- Universal Design You’re not designing for Mars and Jupiter here; you’re designing for Grandma. Universal design means that the home environment will continue to be easy to navigate and accommodate even as residents age and have different needs from spaces; this is going to only become more important as the elderly population is expected to skyrocket over the next 30 years. Wider doors and easy walk in tubs and showers are examples of this.
- Metal Roofs Roofing industry insiders are saying metal roofing will become even more popular this year. Why? Metal roofing has a long life. It’s resistant to common roof repair problems, like mildew, fire and rot. It’s much lighter than other traditional roofing materials. These roofs are also good at reflecting radiant heat, helping homeowners save on energy bills.
Home remodeling in 2015 doesn’t have to be a struggle. These are just three ways of many that you can continue to improve your home so that it is more enjoyable, and more valuable as well.
