Home Builder with link home builders

Among the renovations you perform in your home, kitchen and bathroom, upgrades and remodels provide the most bang for your bucks. These are the most used areas of your home and bring the highest return on investment when you decide to sell. That is, when the work is well done and on trend. If you want to renovate parts of your home in 2020, consider the three most popular choices below.


What's New for Renovations in 2020

Key trends for home renovations in 2020 include minimalism, pops of colour and patterns, and the addition of the latest technologies. Focusing on these recommendations can keep your home looking fresh and stylish. At the same time, you enjoy increased functionality through the Internet of Things and innovative space-saving designs.


Scour the web to find your design inspiration that draws from these top trends. Also, talk to your renovation contractor about options they imagine for your space. Together, you can come up with a unique, yet trendy, design to make your inspiration become a reality.


Bold Counter Surfaces in Kitchens and Bathrooms

In 2020, walk away from the granite. One of the biggest trends today is the quartz countertop. Quartz provides durability in a broad selection of colours and styles. These surfaces also offer family-friendly durability and easy-to-clean, low maintenance that appeals to everyone this year.


Simply put, no longer is the focus on solid white surfaces or rooms. Instead, look for modern counter surfaces to accent pops of colour and bold touches in your kitchen and bathrooms.


If you have a bigger budget and want a luxurious appeal, you cannot go wrong with marble countertops. The hottest trend is toward deeply-veined designs. Marble is timeless, so easy to maintain and never goes out of style.


High-Tech Renovations

2020 is also the year to make your home high-tech. Innovative smart home technology was intimidating to many people, at first. But now these features and functions are time-tested and proven. In kitchens and bathrooms, you can control energy efficiency, water efficiency, security, appliance use and many more daily needs using your smartphone while anywhere in the world. You can also turn lights on and off, adjust the thermostat and make coffee with a simple phone or tablet touch.


Smart appliances are among the most popular new features for home renovations. Choose from a broad selection of options, such as voice-activated stoves and ranges. Request maintenance notifications, start your dishwasher, buy groceries and perform other functions with simple commands. In the bathroom, you can implement technological solutions for faucet control, toilets and lighting. These trendy innovations make life easier while saving you money on your utility bills.


Pops of Colour and Visual Interest

In 2020, most homeowners are abandoning solid white kitchens and bathrooms, as said before. Unless you want your home to appear dated, you should consider avoiding the all-white look, too. Today's home buyers seek visual interest in real estate, especially in kitchens and bathrooms. Choose from a wide selection of on-trend colours and styles, including vibrant greens, blacks and grays. You can add blasts of colour, such as oranges, reds, yellows and purples, to add even more interest and depth.


Choose from a wide range of coloured appliances, accessories, cabinets, tiles and fixtures, too. Lighting, backsplashes and appliances are great starting points for integrating colour pops.

Staying on Trend In 2020 Is Easy

It is easier than you think to stay on trend in 2020 for your home renovations. Simply find a reputable contractor who has the experience and broad exposure to design trends, to help you bring your inspiration to reality. Step aside from your fear and constraint by what is now "so 2010s." Move into the next decade in style.
