Don’t Miss Out: 2016 Phoenix Home Remodeling Trends
We witnessed an interesting year for home design in 2015. In fact, many of the trends that arose throughout this last year will fortunately remain relevant well into 2016.
This is not to say that new trends won’t continue to pop-up, however if you incorporated some design trends from 2015, don’t feel like you have to rush out and make a change right away.
Despite whatever trends are “hot” this year, at the end of the day, your home should be a place you and your family thoroughly enjoy and feel comfortable in year after year.
At the top of the list, creating one-of-a-kind designs to fit a homeowner’s unique lifestyle will become a huge game changer in the custom remodeling in Scottsdale industry in 2016.
Additionally, industry experts predict rising popularity in trends like the “getaway” room, where individual family members can have some “alone-space” to complement the increasingly popular open plan.
Homeowners will also favor enhancing the home office, as more Americans are working from home than ever before.
Here are several other big industry custom remodeling game changers expected over the course next year:
It’s no secret that homeowners often spend more money on a kitchen remodel than any other room in the house. With features now available like oversized islands, gigantic food pantries and high-end appliances, utilizing space and focusing on design can significantly change and update your kitchen.
Wine is becoming more popular than it ever has been. In 2016, more homeowners will incorporate wine centers or intimate wine rooms into their remodeling projects. Luxurious bars are making a comeback, too.
Transforming your bathroom into a peaceful oasis is another game changer expected in 2016. What was traditionally only seen in day spas and fancy mansions, these personalized bathroom retreats are increasingly popping up in average homes nationwide.
Bring the Inside Outside
Homeowners tend to find they enjoy entertaining family and friends much more when their house has a seamless flow between the indoor and outdoor areas. To design this connection, some homeowners in 2016 will include a flow between a patio or deck area that can easily be transformed to a closed-off area for the cooler months of the year.
Homeowners are increasingly turning to user-friendly apps on their smartphones to manage network-enabled lights, thermostats, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, and even video monitoring. These apps and smart devices make daily chores less time-consuming while also helping consumers “go green” by reducing energy consumption.
As the U.S. population ages and life expectancy remains at an all time high, the need for safe living will continue to be a focal point in many homes. Ensuring your living space is safe and user-friendly for loved ones – no matter their age or ability level – is critical. Features like walk-in showers, lowered sinks and appliances, as well as safety bars in bathtubs and showers are all smart choices in the age-in-place arena.
Don’t Forget Fido
Recent research from The American Pet Products Association (APPA) reveals that the profile of pet ownership is shifting towards younger owners who tend to pamper their animals more than previous generations. With that said, pet owners will incorporate Fido-friendly outdoor drinking fountains and play areas with pet hammocks and canine showers into their remodel plans over the next year.
