Top 5 home remodelling trends you won’t want to miss

Creating more space

home remodelling trendsThere’s been an increase in homeowners wanting to knock down walls to create open plan living, especially in older homes.

Removing walls will open up your home and create a new look and feel without needing new construction!

It helps rooms naturally flow into each other, while spreading sunlight around. The most popular option is to knock down walls between the kitchen and adjoining rooms, such as the lounge or dining rooms.

It’s important to hire a qualified tradesperson from Builderscrack for wall demolition, especially if it’s a load-bearing wall. You’ll also need to identify if building consent is required.

Personalise your living spaces

home remodelling trendsCustom remodelling is very well-liked and homeowners are selecting projects to make their homes more functional.

The latest trends include special stations for charging electronics such as phones and laptops, storage spaces and built-ins.

Personalised organisation such as message centers for a busy family, customised pot drawers for the ‘chef’ or under-cabinet lighting are also very popular.

The key is to choose ideas which are functional, designed well and pleasing to the eye.

Walk-in shower and master bath

Currently the big trend in master bathrooms is a large walk-in shower, using frameless glass while sitting flush with the floor.

This will complement a stand-alone bath tub, making the best use of often limited bathroom space.

Regardless of the size of your next bathroom project, Builderscrack can connect you with highly rated tradespeople in your area.

Create a home office

Whatever the reason, you need home office space!

Creating a home office doesn’t have to mean permanent changes. It’s as simple as reworking an existing spare bedroom. You may need an electrician to install some additional power points or a handyman to install some shelving, or you can go all out with a full interior redesign.

Making the most of your back garden

Then you’ll have a great place to hang out and relax while the kids play!

The smartest garden and backyard home remodelling trends will opt for renovations that don’t require much ongoing maintenance.

This way, your free time and funds won’t be spent on slaving away in a garden you should be relaxing in and enjoying!
