Now that 2019 is in full swing and the holiday season is behind us until the end of the year, many homeowners have turned their attention to how they want to remodel their homes in the coming weeks and months. If you’re struggling to decide what changes you’d like to make to your house, this guide is here to help. As you continue reading, you will learn about a selection of residential renovation trends you should be aware of in the new year.
Wood and glass entry doors – Now more than ever, we know that entryways can make or break the total look of a home. An increasing number of homeowners are eschewing common fiberglass and steel front doors for richer looking options crafted from wood and glass. If real wood doesn’t fit into your budget, consider a durable composite door that has an authentic wood look. Cedar and oak doors are both immensely popular, but you can choose any style you want through a semi-custom or custom door manufacturing company.
Walls of windows – This particular trend is ideal for homeowners throughout North Carolina and South Carolina, where the scenery can vastly differ from one region to another, but remains incredibly beautiful in both the mountains and the on the Atlantic coast. Walls of solid windows are a remodeling trend that will allow for lots of natural light and the ability to take advantage of the view you undoubtedly worked hard to find. If you’re worried about utility usage, remember that today’s windows are extremely energy efficient. As for privacy, consider investing in windows with built-in retractable blinds.
Customized closet areas – For far too long, closets were simply catchall spaces that rarely had great organization. Nowadays, though, homeowners know the value of having every part of their homes in order. Custom-designed closets can lead to lower stress levels and simpler lifestyles overall. If you don’t feel comfortable doing your own closet organization, several companies throughout the Carolinas specialize in this type of service for less money than you’re probably expecting.
Adding a “water space” to bathrooms – More and more homeowners are opting to turn their master bathrooms into spa-like retreats. One way they are accomplishing this is by adding “water spaces,” rather than conventional standalone showers and bathtubs. Water spaces combine showers and baths into spacious, tile-covered areas. Typically, this allows for two people to enjoy the space at once, making it perfect for couples. If you are interested in installing a water space during your renovation, talk to your contractor.
