If you’ve lived in your home for a significant amount of time, it can start to feel outdated and stale. For some, moving to a home nearby is a viable solution. Others look to do a remodel to freshen up their home. While these can sometimes be costly, certain projects can go a long way to creating the perfect aesthetic in your home. At J. Schwartz, LLC Remodeling & Fine Home Building, we do high-end remodeling that will give your home a beautiful and luxurious feel. If you’re looking for ideas for your home, we have a list of five 2021 remodeling trends to give you some inspiration.
Go high tech
If you’re upgrading your home, you might as well make things a little easier for you around the house. You can implement smart features into your house that allow you to turn off the lights, lock the doors and windows, put down the window shades, and much more from the comfort of your bed at night. Smart homes are the future and provide security features that will help you sleep at night and give you peace of mind while you’re away.
Walls can make your home feel cramped and crowded. Of course, certain walls can be difficult to take out because they’re load-bearing, but you can take out other walls that are used as nothing more than dividers and open up the space in your home. Open the space from your kitchen to your dining room so you don’t have to feel like you’re cooking in a restaurant. Integrate your kitchen and living room so you can socialize while you’re making up appetizers. Your home will feel much more open and inviting if it’s not sectioned off into so many pieces.
Let in natural light
Letting natural light into your home is a great way to save on your energy bills while creating a happier and more relaxed environment in your home. Whether you need windows installed or want to upgrade to something bigger, you can create a space that allows more natural light. If your home faces west and you’re worried about the evening sun blinding you or making your house too warm in the summer, you can get sun shades that effectively reduce the amount of solar heat in the room and make it so you can still see the sunset.
Alcove shower/bathtub combinations have been around for a long time. They’ve been a convenient way to reduce the amount of space that’s taken up in bathrooms and make it easy to keep from slashing water all over the bathroom. However, stand-alone bathtubs are often much larger and make for a great place to soak and relax at the end of the day.
If you’re worried about a stand-alone bathtub making too much of a mess in your bathroom, build a wet room. The idea behind a wet room is that you have a large space in your bathroom to shower and dry off. You create the wet room by using shower tile for as much space as you’d like, then install a single drain that's strategically placed to drain the shower and accommodate when you're drying off. You can also put a stand-alone tub in the wet room so any water that spills over the top simply lands on the tile floor and flows down the drain for the shower.
