This Year's Popular Home Remodel and Renovation Projects

2020’s Home Renovation Trends

2019 was the first year in quite some time that the housing market slowed down. Generally, this means that the home renovation industry will also see decreased action. It makes sense: savvy homeowners are watching the market. They’re not ready to make the investment if they’re not sure they will see a return.

Because of this, not only will homeowners be spending less on average on renovations, they will be spending that money differently than in previous years. Here’s our predictions for how homeowners will be improving or updating their homes this year.

DIY Will Never Die

The Internet makes it easy to find instructions for just abut anything. Plenty of homeowners will save money by doing it themselves, especially since they can save big, up to 50% (sometimes more) on things like decks, bathroom additions, and minor kitchen remodels.

Others will be more careful choosing what they do and who performs the work. These people will spend more time researching on the internet to know exactly what they want and how much it should cost them.

Cost-Savings Will Be Key

Homeowners will spend less money on renovations, but they’ll also be spending that money differently, with a larger focus on projects that save money in the long run. Expect an increase in improvements like energy-efficient lighting, better roofing and insulation, and tankless water heaters.

Homeowners Want Bang for Their Buck

Think about the things you notice when you visit someone else’s home. Of course we’ll notice if someone’s home is huge, or filthy, or has great natural light, but we often focus on smaller details.

Floors, Walls, and Ceilings Still a Major Focus

Repairing, renewing, or replacing these surfaces is an easy way to give a house a facelift, and since they usually require less time and money than large renovations or structural changes. To no one’s surprise, carpet’s popularity is still waning, with many homeowners ripping it up to refinish the wood floors beneath.

Wellness Issues On the Rise

Homeowners, especially Millennials, want their homes to be clean and free of pollutans, leading to a rise in use of air and water purifiers, and non-toxic materials such as low-VOC paints and lacquers. Also on the rise: lighting that follows Circadian rhythms to improve sleep.

Wellness is often associated with renewable or “green home” initiatives aimed at making homes more energy efficient and environmentally friendly (more on that below).

Painting is Never a Bad Idea

Painting is cheap, it’s easy to DIY, and there are countless resources online to help you choose your colors. Painting can transform spaces and completely change the vibe within a home.
