Spring provides an excellent opportunity to take on a remodeling project. You’ll be able to focus on all aspects of your remodel without worrying about upcoming vacations and the kids’ busy summer camp schedules. 

If you’re ready to take on a remodel this spring, there are a few ways you can modernize and enhance your home. Here are some renovation trends to consider taking on with your own home this year.

1. Recreational Rooms

As families continue to spend more time at home, there’s an increasing need for access to fun, recreational activities to keep everyone busy and entertained. If you have an unfinished basement or unused room in your home, consider remodeling the space to meet your and your family’s needs. 

From in-home movie theaters to game rooms and bars, the possibilities are endless for your renovation.

2. At-Home Work Space

Have you been working from home lately? Do something with that unused space in your home and create a work-at-home space. You can go as far as creating your own office or simply incorporating new colors and designs in a corner of your home. 

By renovating the space to match your professional needs, you can maximize your productivity and comfort while working from home. You can also install new lighting fixtures that allow you to stay focused and comfortable in your workspace.

3. Enhance Your Outdoor Space

As temperatures warm-up, you’ll want a spot to enjoy the beautiful weather in the comfort of your own home. With an updated deck, you can do just that! From new wood flooring to aesthetically pleasing additions such as a pergola and planters, a deck renovation can provide you with that outdoor oasis you’ve always dreamed of.

4. Upgraded Bathroom

Your bathroom should serve as an at-home escape from everyday life and responsibilities. By renovating your bathroom, you can enhance your overall satisfaction and comfort at home. 

From a comfortable bathtub to heated flooring and beautiful accented tiles, a simple bath remodel can completely transform your home’s ambiance.

5. Escape or Relaxation Rooms

It’s no secret that life gets more and more stressful every year. A renovation trend we’re starting to see are escape or relaxation rooms. This is a personal choice, whether you want a yoga room, a library, or just a place to sit and watch TV without outside distractions. 

If you’re a music lover, creating a room dedicated to music is also an option. Having a place to relax and enjoy your favorite things is essential to reducing stress and making life more enjoyable.

6. Bedroom Oasis

While we’re on the subject of relaxing, why not renovate your bedroom? After all, we spend about 26 years of our life sleeping. Adjusting paint colors, curtains or blinds, and decor can help create a better environment for you to get the best sleep of your life. 

You can also incorporate smart devices, like lighting that turns off with your voice, and perhaps some relaxing music playing over your smart speaker.

7. Add a Mudroom

It’s easy to forget about places to store your coats, bags, and shoes. Adding a mudroom can help you stay organized, and help keep the dirt and snow in one place, rather than tracking it all over the house. 

There are many different storage options these days, and spicing up the room with decor and paint can make your mudroom a pleasant place to enter your home.

8. Pepper Your Walls With Wallpaper

Design styles are cyclical, and bold wallpapers is making a comeback. No longer is it regulated to the 1970s. There are easy peel-and-stick wallpapers that you can try out without the excessive work. 

Wallpaper is eye catching and can help spice up your rooms. It can help show your personality and style, and can be used in any room.

9. Built-in Storage Options

Free-standing storage is great, but built-in storage is where its at. Bookshelves, drawers, and other nooks and crannies can be built right into your walls, where they’ll be more stable and can help enhance your spaces. 

You can also use this as a chance to wrangle some of your electronic cords by covering them with storage.
