Many homeowners want their remodeled space to add convenience and fit their families lifestyle.

As the weather starts to warm and the trees start to blossom, so does the desire of homeowners to get to their home remodeling to-do lists and projects. Somerville Aluminum, a leading home improvement company in NJ, unveils the top trends in home remodeling based on industry statistics and customer requests.

A recent poll by NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry) indicated that people are choosing to do a series of smaller upgrades around the house rather than tackle larger renovation projects. The most popular home remodeling job remains a kitchen makeover.

Kitchens are the most popular room in the house to remodel. Homeowners in the market to sell their home recoup an average of 81% from their investment in a kitchen remodel. Kitchen upgrades offer convenience and energy savings for those homeowners wishing to stay in their home. Stone countertops, farmhouse sinks, and refrigerators with French doors are all popular choices. More extensive kitchen remodels include walk-in pantries, a multi-purpose mudroom and enlarged laundry rooms.

Bathroom remodels are always a must-do project. Usually costing less than a kitchen remodel, many homeowners are turning their bathrooms into a spa. Updating a bathroom with new tile and heated flooring, vanities with granite or quartz countertops and fixtures such as dual rain shower heads, Jacuzzi soaking tubs and LED mood lighting, set the tone for relaxation after a long day at the office.

Sunrooms are always a favored home addition and can easily be added to any style home. A well-designed sunroom can greatly enhance the value of a home and provide extra living space and year-round enjoyment without changing the existing footprint and structure of a house. Sunrooms increase the energy–efficiency of a home by taking advantage of passive solar heating, reducing heating bills, while at the same time providing unobstructed views to homeowners who have often been staring at a computer screen all day. Somerville Aluminum is currently offering deep discounts on select sunroom products. Please visit:

“Green remodeling,” continues to be a best practice in NJ home remodeling. Increasing energy efficiency, reducing heating and cooling costs while boosting curb appeal is always top of mind. Replacement vinyl windows are environmentally strong providing increased insulation while adding aesthetic beauty. Fiberglass replacement doors meeting ENERGY STAR® guidelines offer solid utility-busting properties, provide safety and security and can match the style and décor of any home.Roof replacement with proper ventilation systems promotes energy efficiency by keeping a home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer and vinyl siding, installed with a contoured insulation foam backer makes a homeowner’s walls extremely insulated promoting energy conservation.
