Home Renovation Trends To Watch In 2017–

Looking to remodel or update your home this year, but not sure where to start? You’re not alone. Whether you’re looking to totally gut and overhaul your kitchen or simply update some of your dated fixtures, it helps to have some inspiration. We’ve compiled a list of renovation trends we’ve seen so far this year, along with a few, industry-wide renovation trends to help get your brainstorm started.


1. Heated Bathroom Floors

Thinking of installing new flooring in your bathroom? You may want to consider going with heated bathroom floors. This small touch can take your home bathroom from lackluster to luxurious. Of all the renovation trends we’ve seen recently, this one is definitely the hottest.

2. Curbless Showers

Another recent trend we’ve seen is also happening in the bathroom. Many homeowners are choosing to make their showers curbless, and some are even choosing to forego shower doors all together. These easy-access, sleek designs are one showstopping way to modernize your bathroom.

3. Maximizing Storage Space

This year, the “tiny home” has grown increasingly trendy. Though most homeowners are not choosing to downsize so drastically, they are looking to maximize storage in their own tight spaces. This includes custom kitchen and bath cabinetry, custom, built-in closet organizers, and adding functionality to the area under the stairs, ideally leaving little-to-no wasted space.

4. High-End Laundry Rooms

Nobody likes a dark and dingy laundry room. Homeowners are starting to see the value in investing more into their laundry spaces. Laundry-room redesigns can help maximize space and functionality. Whether you’re remodeling for resale or seeking to upgrade your space for yourself, a sleek laundry room definitely adds value to your home.

5. Splurging on Entryways

The industry as a whole has seen a recent increase in spend on entryways and mudrooms in homes. According to both Forbes and the 2016 Houzz & Home Report, “homeowners will spend on average $2,500 to make over their entryway or mudroom that’s 150 square feet or more ($1,400 for a space that’s less than 150 square feet).”  First impressions count!
