Gone are the days of shag carpets and carpeted bathrooms! Some of you may still be embracing and living in the 70’s but if you are trying to sell your home for top dollar there are certain upgrades that home buyers are looking for in a home.
Now I am not talking about green walls, furniture, and bathrooms. Buyers are becoming more focused on a home being a green energy efficient home. This means that they are looking for energy efficient lighting, windows, and appliances. With the advancement in technology more and more household items have jumped onto the energy efficient train and these items are becoming more popular in new builds.
Custom Home Theater
Who doesn’t love to watch a movie? Going to the movies is becoming less and less popular due to rising prices. With On Demand and things like Netflix there is less of a need to venture out to be in a theater with other people. A new home upgrade that is trending is bringing the theater to your home. Transforming a room in your home to a custom move theater is a great selling feature. Bringing in your own comfortable seating, projector, screen, and even a popcorn maker can get you the movie theater experience at home.
Sunken tubs are a thing of the past, thankfully. The current trend that buyers are looking for is a walk-in shower. A walk-in, glass free, shower makes your home bathroom feel like a spa retreat. Gaining the tranquility of a spa at home is a popular trend and will be seen more and more as new homes are built. Making this upgrade will not only modernize your bathroom but bring an extra bit of relaxation to your home.
The advancement in technology has made it more important than ever to have a home office. The number of people that are able to work remotely has drastically increased over the past few years. Having a home office space that isn’t shared with a bedroom or a corner in the kitchen will help with privacy, efficiency, and productivity. Where as in the past a home office wasn’t as necessary there is a greater demand and popularity for a home that has a designated room for an office.
Stainless steel appliances are a thing of the past. A new player is becoming the most desired. Matte finished appliances are taking over the kitchen remodel market. They are much easier to clean and don’t leave fingerprints and smudges like stainless steel appliances do. Matte appliances are visually appealing and can give the kitchen a clean and elegant appearance.
