New year, new home improvement renovations! As we kick off 2022, you may be thinking of putting your home on the market and eager to boost its value — or maybe you’re just ready for an upgrade!
With so many changes in the past couple of years, many homeowners have been faced with the need for more space. Keep reading to learn more about the leading home renovation projects for the upcoming year, according to experts.
1.Update Your Bathroom
According to a study conducted by Zillow and Realm, bathroom remodels are the most popular project homeowners are looking to tackle. A Houzz 2021 bath trends report also states that sinks and faucets are the most popular bathroom upgrade.
Updating your vanity is one of the quickest ways to change the look of your bathroom without undertaking an entire remodel and it’s budget-friendly. Customize your vanity with marble countertops to really turn your bathroom into a spa-like oasis!
2. Add More Storage
Doesn’t it feel like we’re always looking for additional kitchen storage? Increased kitchen storage is an absolute necessity in 2022. In the last few years, butler pantries have established themselves as one of the must-have items in modern homes. Upgrade your current kitchen pantry to include custom countertops, shelves, and drawers to create a functional and well-organized space.
Kitchen islands also work best when designed to your specific needs. Consider including built-ins or cabinets that allow you to get the most storage! Pair it with a natural stone or quartz countertop from Onslow Stoneworks to maximize your kitchen’s functionality!
3. Modernize Your Kitchen Appliances
When searching for a new home, most prospective homeowners say that they would spend more on a house with updated appliances. The trick is to go for quality pieces instead of focusing on trends.
Kitchen appliance trends may come and go, like air fryers or stand mixers. Focus on investing in the big appliances — your stove, fridge, dishwasher, etc. — before you splurge on the fun stuff.
4. Upgrade Your Lighting
New lighting is a simple way to refresh your outdated space. Statement lighting that focuses on unique designs, shapes, and sizes is big for 2022. Look for interesting pendant lights, retro Edison bulbs, or even think about putting in a chandelier.
