Best New Upgrade Trends for Your Home

Attic conversion

Does your house have a spacious attic where you store junk? Declutter and make some use of that empty space. Add some square footage and convert your attic into a spare room, sitting space, or playroom for the kids.

Suite Addition

The “modern family” has evolved, and this new trend reflects that. Add or build a home with an add-on suite—for elderly parents or maybe a recent college graduate who has moved back to the empty nest and needs their own space. This can include a bedroom, bathroom suite, or even a kitchenette but is still a part of the home.

Wood deck

Create an additional space that your friends and family will love by adding a deck to your backyard. Your new deck will add value to your home and an additional selling point that future buyers will be looking for.

Tech

Let’s talk about some of the most useful upgrades you can add to your home. Technology in homes is all the rage. Control your thermostat, see who’s at your door, or lock your doors all from your smartphone. This new tech makes your home a safe and convenient place to live.

Siding

If your wood siding is rotting or needs frequent coats of paint, consider updating the standard wood to a material such as fiber-cement. It’s a great investment because your siding will last for many years and will never need a fresh coat of paint.

Concrete

You’re probably scratching your head wondering why concrete is here. Maybe repave a driveway? Nope! Stained concrete flooring, countertops, sink basins, you name it. Concrete is IN.

Going Green

If you want to reduce your environmental footprint, these are the upgrades you’re looking for. Consider replacing your appliances and windows, installing a tankless water heater, or changing your roofing system. Even just one of these updates can help you do your part, and you probably won’t mind saving on your electric bill either.
