Are you thinking about updating your home this year?

Your home is where you spend the majority of your time, but perhaps spending so much time at home has highlighted areas that are in need of improvement.

Prioritizing which project to focus on can be tricky and overwhelming.

Below we identify five key spaces that can really make an impact when you’re thinking about investing in improvements.

Any one of these projects can help you truly enjoy the space you’re coming home to at the end of a busy day.

1) Primary Suite

If your sleeping quarters are not in the condition you aspire them to be, this can be a source of added stress in your day-to-day operations. Reconfiguring the interior of your home or building an addition to make space for a dedicated primary suite can be a gamechanger for busy homeowners. The sleeping quarters might not be the most used area of your home, but this is certainly a space that make a direct impact on your overall health. 

 If you are not satisfied with the size and shape of the primary suite, or if your home is missing a primary suite currently, reconfiguring a poorly laid out space or removing walls are two methods that could be considered lightly intrusive to make room for a suite.  Many homeowners need to consider a home addition to make room for a primary suite.

A design consideration to keep in mind is the breakdown of space between an en suite bathroom and closet. One of the biggest issues we hear from homeowners is that the bedroom quickly gathers clutter because there isn’t enough storage available. You might want to add a walk-in wardrobe to your new primary suite with built in shelving units to address this common concern. 

2) Kitchen

The kitchen is a hub of family activity, but if you haven’t updated your kitchen space and appliances in some time, it’s well worth considering kitchen remodeling.

Over the past decade, kitchens have come a long way, with in-counter microwaves and beverage coolers and other modern features becoming more prevalent in luxury homes. When you make your kitchen an inviting place to spend time, you’ll find your family is more connected and enjoys having this central room to spend time in.

If you enjoy cooking, you’ll really appreciate having a kitchen that’s well laid out and easy to walk around.

During this renovation process, you’ll want to think about updating your cabinetry, countertops, flooring, and current kitchen appliances and tools. Prepping for the dinner time rush will feel much more luxurious with all of the modern solutions you could need on hand.

3) Bathroom

If you have dated bathroom designs in your home, a bathroom contractor can work with you to make this necessary home renovation.

Popular bathroom remodels and additions include freestanding bathtubs, open showers, and creative bathroom lighting. Your bathroom doesn’t need just to be a functional space, and a good bathroom contractor will work with you to make the bathroom enjoyable to visit.

Many homeowners are opting to make their bathroom feel more like a spa, giving them a space to relax and forget about the stress of a busy day.

4) Home Office

If you’re working from home without a dedicated office space, it might be time to invest in a home office setup. This is one of the simpler home additions you could make, and you’ll find that it also benefits your home if you decide to put it on the market in the future.

A home office offers you the privacy and space to concentrate on your work. If you run your own business, you can tailor your home office with an addition contractor to ensure it offers you the features that you need to complete your work with ease.

After two years of working from home, it’s time to give yourself a designated space, so you can separate your work and personal life. You’ll find this helps to set boundaries around working from home, and it’s one of the most gratifying home renovation ideas for 2022.

5) Basement

The basement is often an overlooked space in many homes, but it’s one of the best return on investments a homeowner can make when comparing renovation projects. If you are just using your basement for storage at the moment, you could turn it into a home office or family playroom. The options are endless for how you can upgrade your basement, and it’s a great home addition to add new living quarters to your home.

When putting your home up for sale in the future, prospective homeowners will appreciate this home addition. Families who are preparing to expand in the future are in need of an additional bedroom or living space. If you have children sharing a bedroom right now, the basement could offer an alternative sleeping arrangement.

A home renovation contractor will work with you to ensure this space is safe to spend time in and that the structure will support the basement renovation project.
