A new year is just around the corner. If you want to make changes to your home, now is the perfect time to start planning. Many projects can enhance your home and turn it into your dream abode.

Let's explore some of the most popular ideas for renovations and additions as we enter 2023.

1. Smart Technology Additions

With advances in the tech industry over the past few years, this addition makes sense for homeowners who want to elevate their living space to join the movement. Not only will leveraging up-to-date technology add to your living space appeal, but it could also help maximize the use of natural resources while reinventing your comfort levels.

Innovative technology additions also have solutions for every need, with a complete inventory of quality fixtures, appliances, and audio/video equipment. You can tackle any renovation idea, from revamping your kitchen to adding a game room with top-of-the-line gear.

2. Outdoor Living Additions

Not only do outdoor living additions provide an opportunity to take full advantage of Malvern's beautiful weather, but with renovations come unlimited design options so you can create an outdoor living area that best fits your needs.

Outdoor renovations and additions can also add extra living space for the family, from a poolside lounge to a BBQ grill and patio or even a stylish fire pit. Whether it's just a gathering of friends or an intimate setting with family and friends, renovations and additions add a unique environment for all.

3. Energy Efficiency Upgrades

As renovations and additions can significantly impact your home's comfort, livability, and value, energy efficiency upgrades are always a great option. Renovations focusing on energy efficiency can save heating and cooling bills while adding to your home's overall value.

Energy-efficient renovations and additions range from windows and doors to insulation renovations and high-efficiency heating and cooling systems. These renovations are a significant investment as they can offer long-term returns and peace of mind that your energy bill won't be unexpectedly high due to inefficiencies.

4. Adding Square Footage

If you need more space inside your home, consider adding square footage through an addition such as a sunroom, guest room, workshop, or office area. Additional square footage can also increase your living space without requiring a complete tear-down of your existing home, saving you time and money.

When considering a square footage addition, understand the local zoning regulations before starting construction on anything substantial. Additionally, if you plan to add any electrical wiring or plumbing components along with the addition, work with professionals to ensure everything is done correctly and safely.

5. Kitchen Remodel

Kitchens can be tricky renovations to tackle. They often require comprehensive design and structural and electrical changes while keeping functionality in mind.

Start by making a plan of the renovations you want to make. Consider the countertops, backsplash, and cabinets you'd like to add, along with storage renovations and flooring changes.

6. Bathroom Updates

Like kitchens, bathrooms often need to be updated frequently due to wear and tear from daily use. A bathroom renovation can include replacing a sink or toilet, adding heated floors, or installing new lighting fixtures. Consider adding tile accents or painting walls with a fresh coat of paint to add color or texture to any bathroom space.
