Jan 7, 2022 | 0 comments

Heading into 2022 everyone hopes that this will be the year that sees the pandemic fading away. For two years now, we’ve had to adjust to fresh waves and newly evolving strains, with constant, and often severe, disruptions to our lives. One of the outcomes has been that people have taken to spending more time working from the secure environment of their homes.

This often requires us, though, to adapt and accommodate to existing spaces, that may not be optimally suited to our needs. Because of this, the home remodeling and renovation industry enjoyed a resurgence in 2021.

So, looking ahead, what are likely to be the key home remodeling trends in 2022? Let’s take our proverbial crystal ball and try and foresee what may be in store over the coming period.

Home Office Momentum

Over the past year-and-a-half, the home office has evolved into a complex space. People don’t just work at personalized desks; the home office that has evolved has tended to become an extension of their characters as well. No longer tied to a fixed office routine, they may be better placed and more willing to work longer flexible hours, stretching from earlier or later in the day, and even over weekends

With so many people in the workforce working remotely, they are availing themselves of a number of hybrid remote work setups. So, it’s a no-brainer that home offices will continue to star in many remodeling projects.

The advantage of remodeling a home office now, compared to the chaotic times of last year, is that a variety of exciting new options are available. This means better, higher-quality choices that can often be had for highly affordable prices. It’s a great time to finally build your dream home office.

Technology Integration

Smart homes are becoming even smarter thanks to the wide availability of sophisticated technology. From motion-sensitive lights to entire rooms manipulated and controlled by your phone, everything is in the palm of your hand.

Technology in home remodeling is not limited only to appliances, furniture, and space in the purely physical sense. It also applies to the way contractors approach the whole design process from beginning to completion of the project. For example, there is 3-D modeling technology which allows a deeper dive into project designs and presentations. Artificial intelligence is utilized by the latest computing modeling software and hardware to optimize the choices for each customer’s specific parameters and needs.

Emphasis on sustainability

Organic design influences trended strongly over the past year. That will definitely continue to be the case moving forward. It’s not just organic in terms of materials and appearance, either. There is also a focus on how sustainable a living space can be. Many people are now conscious of their respective environmental footprints, reflected in their consumer choices as well as their ways of life.

That’s why there is a rise in remodeling centered around making day-to-day living a more sustainable one. This could be expressed in the way a room is designed to take in more natural light to save energy. It can also manifest itself in the choices for materials used in the structure. There are many ways through which a mindset of sustainability can be accommodated.

The finest home renovation projects are based on the understanding that each customer has unique interests and specific requirements. When you’ve decided on a remodel for your home, you’ll need someone who understand your dreams, and is capable of delivering them.
