3 Home Renovation Trends

A home renovation is the perfect opportunity to reinvent your space to fit your current sensibilities or change things up to keep them exciting. Ironwood Custom Remodels has worked on many home renovation projects to create the perfect atmosphere for our customers. Today, we’ll discuss some trends we’ve noticed in recent months.

Personalizing your home office

Our increasingly sedentary lifestyle is bad for our health. Luckily, ergonomic furniture can help reduce the burden placed on the body. In addition to ergonomic chairs, home office owners are taking the next step. Adjustable height desks allow you to switch between sitting and standing. Ergonomic keyboard trays keep your wrist in a neutral position. Adjustable monitor stands position screens at eye level to reduce neck strain. For any physical stressor, there’s likely an ergonomic option to reduce discomfort.

Another common theme in modern office design is integrated storage. A clutter-free workspace reduces stress and improves concentration. Built-in shelves and cabinets or wall-mounted storage containers can add functionality to the room while creating an attractive design. Drawer organizers can help make the most of the space available.

Remember to add some personal touches to the decor. Your home office should feel as much like home as it does an office.

Flooring, Window and Lighting upgrades

New flooring has long been a part of comprehensive home renovation plans. Often, it’s part of even a basic renovation. Old standbys like hardwood flooring are still popular choices, though luxury vinyl plank (LVP) is a popular alternative that provides additional waterproofing and decreased costs compared to hardwood. With an increased focus on environmental impact, sustainable options such as bamboo flooring are also gaining in popularity.

The desire to be eco-friendly continues when it comes time to upgrade the windows in a home. Energy-efficient windows can save on utility costs and reduce dependence on the pollutants required to produce that energy. As smart homes make home automation a more attractive feature, there’s also been an increase in the use of motorized blinds and shades. 

Speaking of home automation, smart lighting has become one of the most common elements of a modern smart home. Not only can these lights be controlled by voice, but their brightness and color can be controlled with extreme precision for just the right mood at just the right time. These include traditional light bulbs with smart features as well as LED light strips for accents and highlights. More comprehensive renovations aim to use natural light in the space better.

Outdoor living Spaces: extending your home to the great outdoors

A common theme in any home renovation is trying to get more space. Many homeowners have lots of unused space right outside their front or back doors. Increasingly, home renovations are focused on making the most of that space.

Cooking on the grill has always been a major outdoor activity. Increasingly, homeowners are making that pastime the forefront of their outdoor design. Built-in grills and smokers provide both form and function to an outdoor space. Some even expand their culinary possibilities with outdoor pizza ovens. Of course, no outdoor eating area is complete without stylish furniture to create an inviting and comfortable setting.

There’s more to do outside than eat. Another favorite activity is the campfire. Outdoor fireplaces or fire pits can make the humble campfire a permanent part of your outdoor space. To add to the atmosphere, weather-resistant audio, and video systems can keep the entertainment going as long as the fire burns. Once again, comfortable seating brings the space together.
