Why Are Home Renovation Projects Surging?

Have you been looking around your Colorado Springs home and feeling like it might be time for a change? Well, you’re not alone!

In fact, home renovation projects are surging all across the country. 

Whether you’re moving, remodeling or changing your interior design, the COVID-19 pandemic has created a boom in the remodeling industry with the increase of homeowners wanting to make their space feel more like home. 

The Boom of Home Renovations in 2021

Prior to the pandemic, most people spent only a couple hours at home before and after work, thus not leaving them much time or energy to concentrate on renovation projects. However, in 2020 many of us spent most of our time stuck inside working and waiting for the year to pass. 

This change in routine started the surge in renovation projects as people wanted their homes to feel more like their own and needed space to work away from the hustle and bustle of their family. 

The “New Normals” of 2021

We all know there have become a lot of new “normals” in the past year and one of the biggest new normals is spending more time at home. Our workplaces and beautiful offices, where we could once escape the day to day life of family, kids, pets, cooking, cleaning (you know the rest) has become the place we spend the most time at. Our offices are now our homes and we cook more than ever. 

Most of us know we’re not cooks, but when we can’t go out and enjoy restaurant dinners like we used to, we have to whip out those cookbooks and figure out which measuring cup is the 1⁄4 cup and start cooking!

These are the points when you start to realize “I really don’t like my kitchen” or “I need a better space to work and close doors to block off from the rest of the family to actually get work done”.

If you’re looking for a change in 2021, a home renovation may be just what you need to get a fresh new start in life. Here are the top home renovations for this year!

Top 5 Home Renovations for 2021:

  • Kitchen Projects — Whether it’s simply new appliances or an entire redesign, kitchen remodeling is one of the top home renovations projects for this year.
  • Outdoor Entertainment — Now is the time to start your plans for your outdoor entertainment area so that you can enjoy it all Spring and Summer.
  • Bathroom Updates — One of the most popular renovations are bathroom remodels! 
  • Home Offices — If 2020 taught us one thing, it’s how important it is to have a separate space for work and home. Unlike the office, your house may be full of kids and other people. That’s why creating a home office is so important. 
  • Dedicated Home School Space — Similar to creating a home office space, with so many kids still online learning, a dedicated online learning space has become essential for many parents.
