Trending Renovation Design Ideas for Your Home
6 Trending Renovation Design Ideas for Your Home
Renovating your home is exciting and can increase the value of your home. However, deciding what to do can be overwhelming. The great part about owning a home is that the customization options are endless, but choosing what would be best for your family is difficult.
Have no fear, we have found some trending renovation design ideas for your home. Consider these ideas for your next home renovation project.
1. Take a Dip
Everyone loves a beautiful pool. Pools provide a great look and something to do in your backyard. In-ground pools with a surrounding pool deck are the way to go. They are customizable to your needs and can be as big or small as you have space for. Just don’t forget to install a pool deck drain, otherwise, all that water will have nowhere to go when it rains or when the kids splash half of the water out.
Also in regards to your pool deck, ensure that you go with a non-slip surface. When tiles or epoxy get wet, they get slippery so prevent any accidents by choosing a non-slip surface.
Putting an outdoor shower next to your pool with some privacy walls and temperature control is another trending renovation design. You can use it before and after getting out of the pool, or you can use it all year round to feel more connected to nature. Even if you don’t have a pool, an outdoor shower can be a fun, trending renovation design.
2. Create Some Shade
Pergolas are great because they fit in almost any sized backyard and provide good shade. There is a lot you can do with pergolas. You can plant vines to get a nice green aesthetic or hang fairy lights from them as well. Pergolas can make your backyard a magical space. Put them over some comfortable patio furniture or even hammocks to have a relaxing space to kick back.
One thing to consider with pergolas is whether you want them to be permanently installed or moveable. If you do not concrete it in or otherwise secure it, you risk damage from storms, but the benefit is that you can place it somewhere else if you get bored of your original design in the future.
3. Start From the Top
Start from the top of your home and redo the roof. Though you may immediately consider traditional asphalt shingles, asphalt shingles are no longer the trend. They are basic and make your home look like every other one on the block.
There are so many other great alternative roofing materials. Shake roofing is one of those great alternatives. Cedar shake roofing looks great and is more durable than you might think. You could also go with slate tiles or metal roofing to create a different style. Regardless, changing the style of your roof is a trend that is here to stay.
4. Consider Alternative Siding
The siding on your house often goes unnoticed whenever homeowners are thinking of home renovation ideas. However, replacing the siding on your home can transform the curb appeal of your home.
Many people still have vinyl siding which gets chipped, faded, and easily comes off during storms. A good alternative to vinyl siding is steel plank siding. Steel plank siding is far more durable, is modern, and comes in a variety of colors.
5. Discover Outdoor Kitchens
As we begin to transform and enjoy our outdoor spaces more, outdoor kitchens are increasing in popularity. After all, you probably already have your grill out there, why shouldn’t you be able to make an entire meal out there. Outdoor kitchens are also particularly useful for hosting people and when you have a pool. You should consider including a sink with running water, a stove burner or two, a fridge, and plenty of counter space.
A sink will be helpful for prepping and washing your hands, a stove is perfect for putting on the sides, a fridge is great to have the ingredients right there along with cool drinks on a hot day, and counter space is always particularly useful for chopping and laying everything out.
Try laying it out in an L shape to create a designated area and put it under some protection to keep it cleaner. A pergola or even a more solid option like roofing is great to keep your outdoor kitchen clean and protected so you can use it no matter the weather.
6. Build The Bridge Between Indoor and Outdoor
One trending idea for your home renovation is to blend your indoor and outdoor spaces. This can be done by installing glass walls that slide completely open. These glass walls make your living room and your outdoor space become one. This is great for entertaining and creating more space for you to enjoy.
To implement this well, continue the same style throughout your main indoor living space and your outdoor space. Choose the same accent color and similar styles of furniture to create a cohesive look.
