Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) February 22, 2013
Home trends do not come and go as quickly as fashion trends. They are often dictated by the economy and lifestyle. Generations have different priorities and they are incorporated into the landscape of a home. This Brookhaven Remodeling Contractor has seen that most of the trends for 2013 began showing up before this year and reflect a move toward making a home functional while customizing it to fit homeowners’ unique needs.
“With an increase in home renovations, homeowners are getting the opportunity to make their homes more personal to fit their specific lifestyle,” said Anthony Bellace, owner of Anthony Bellace Construction.
Home remodeling trends Anthony predicts homeowners will want to adopt in 2013 include; the addition of a special purpose room, accessibility for the aging and the extension of livable outdoor space.
Special purpose rooms range from home theatres, home offices, home gyms, mud rooms, custom storage areas and wine cellars. A special purpose room will customize a home, catering to the current season of life. A room can be created from an existing space like a basement or built new as an addition to a home. “Make sure a recommended professional is hired, so the new room blends seamlessly into the rest of the home. It shouldn’t look like an afterthought,” said Anthony.
Accessibility is becoming a priority for the aging, as the baby boomer generation grows older and the trend of multiple generations under one roof continues. There is a growing demand for wheelchair ramps, the installation of shower bars and wider door frames to accommodate walkers and wheelchairs. Lower counters and toilets can also help to ease the physical transformation seniors are being forced to make. Many homeowners are looking forward and preparing their home to be accessible in the future, as they age.
Extending livable space to the outdoors is becoming increasingly common. Having limited space in the backyard should not confine a homeowner from getting in on this trend. Building a deck or patio is a simple way to remedy inadequate space for entertaining, grilling or relaxing. “A deck or patio is one of the easiest ways to add square footage onto a home,” said Anthony. Remodeling Magazine’s annual Cost vs. Value Report found a wood deck addition returns an average of 70% of the original investment.
