For many homebuyers, the house they wind up purchasing could be far from the dream home they envisioned when setting out on the real estate market. Fortunately, some simple, cost-effective home improvement projects can bring that vision to life. Here, New Jersey Siding & Windows, Inc., reviews some of the top 2021 home improvement trends and how you can take advantage of them, whether you just purchased your home or have lived in it for 50 years.
Upgraded Windows and Window Treatments
Windows play such a major role in the look and feel of a house, and they’ve been getting a ton of attention this year. As the desire to have a more naturally lit room grows, homeowners are opting for taller, wider frames. Bay and bow windows are the perfect fit for the larger rooms in the house, as their larger frame allows light to filter into the room without obstruction. Meanwhile, garden windows are appearing in kitchens, giving homeowners the extra space for smaller potted herbs, as well as soap and sponges..
With these trending window upgrades, the need has arisen for homeowners to up the ante for window treatments as well. According to Homes and Gardens, the maximalist look is in this year, meaning many are choosing window treatments that make use of multiple curtains with eye-catching designs and bold colors, ordained curtain rods, and more.
Enhanced Indoor Sunrooms and Outdoor Decks
The ability to entertain in the home is something of great value, and this often means having a place to host guests – rain or shine. That’s why homeowners have taken to fixing up space in their backyard, whether that means adding a brand new deck or fixing up their current one. But if you’d like to have that kind of space year-round, there’s always a similar indoor space, akin to a Florida room. Usually, these are separated from the kitchen with a door and are protected from the outdoors by a series of tall, sliding windows. There is also a door in this room that would lead out into a backyard space.
Brand-New Exterior Siding
Your home’s exterior takes quite a beating between the different storms throughout the seasons, and if you weren’t in love with its curb appeal in the first place, this 2021 trend is for you. Homeowners have taken to repair or completely replace the siding and roofing on their homes. This allows them to not only fortify their home’s structure but also put their twist on its exterior to achieve that dream vision they’ve always wanted.
