Get the Most Out of Your Space This Year With These 2021 Home Renovations Trends

When you first bought your home, you probably weren’t anticipating that one day it would need to accommodate mandatory stay-at-home orders. From transitioning to remote work and virtual schooling to canceling holiday travel plans and family vacations – the spaces in our homes are working double or triple duty these days.

If you have started a Pinterest Board of “Home Renovation Ideas”, you are not alone! Many homeowners are struggling to adapt the functionality of their homes to meet new demands. With different home improvement projects trending everyday, it’s hard to know which renovation will actually be worth it in the long run. At DRF Builders, we want to help you integrate long-lasting functionality, convenience, and value into your home renovation project. 

Below we share some of the best home renovations to make in 2021 to add immediate value to your home, as well as long-term value to your life.

1. Save Money This Year with Eco-Friendly Home Renovation Solutions

Many people are spending considerably more time at home, which inevitably results in using more power and increased energy costs. Saving money is a trend that will never go out of style, and one of the easiest ways you can cut your monthly spending this year is by renovating your home to be more energy-efficient.

Upgrade to LED Lighting Systems

If you are looking to renovate an outdated kitchen or living room, chances are the electrical systems in these high traffic spaces are due for an upgrade as well. Upgrading your outdated light fixtures to LED can conserve up to 90% more energy than traditional bulbs and provide significantly more light. 

Water-Saving Fixtures 

Conserve water by renovating your bathroom, laundry room, or kitchen with eco-friendly household fixtures like dual-flush toilets, low-flow showerheads, and water-efficient dishwashers. 

The DRF team can help you incorporate sustainable solutions into your home renovation project to add value to your daily life, while helping to protect the planet.

2. Home Office Renovations with Integrated Smart Devices

With remote work and homeschooling becoming the new norm, the need for tech-friendly home design has significantly increased. Incorporating integrated smart technology in your home office renovation project can provide much more than just convenience. Smart home devices can also help you create and maintain daily routines, allow hands-free multi-tasking, and even promote comfort and focus.

Smart Speakers 

Smart speakers and displays feature built-in voice assistance, to allow you instant access to important emails, calendar reminders, and other essential remote work tools. 

Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats are incredibly simple to use, but feature some of the most advanced sensors and premium features to deliver optimal performance in your home office. Maintain a comfortable work space and reduce your daily energy usage by renovating your home with a heating and cooling system with smart technology. 

Smart Lighting 

With smart lighting devices, you can personalize your environment to significantly improve focus, reduce eye strain, and help you stay energized while working remotely from home.

There are many other integrated smart home devices you can include in your renovation project that will optimize your home and cut your daily energy use. Our design-build team at DRF can help you integrate cutting edge smart home solutions into any room renovation project.

3. Renovate Outdoor Spaces To Be Multifunctional

After spending the last few months indoors, it can easily start to feel like you’re going stir-crazy or claustrophobic at times. The home renovation team at DRF can help you take advantage of your outdoor space and add instant value to your home.

Custom Backyard Renovation

Create your own outdoor escape while still enjoying the comforts of your home by expanding your home’s living area with a backyard renovation project. This outdoor area can include built-in entertainment systems, a cozy reading or mediation nook, an outdoor cooking and dining area, or any other custom features.
