Spring is finally here! the weather is warming up and flowers are blooming. It is a great time to plan for any repair or improvement work. Whether you need to fix something small or feel the property is looking old and outdated, you may not know where or how to begin.
Let’s take a look at 5 home renovations trends that will help your property look like a million bucks in 2023!
1. Home Office
More people are working from home nowadays. Whether it’s a hybrid or completely remote position, adding an office at home or reassigning a currently unused room allows you to design the room and create a working environment in which you will be most productive.
You can make it a neutral working space, or you can make it a powerhouse. While you don’t want to cram it with distracting items, you can add plants, books and artistic decorative items that will help keep the room elegant while providing you with the functionality that you need to eliminate distractions. You can also set up a small place in the office where you can take a break and relax.
One of the benefits of having a home office is that you can qualify for a deduction if you have a legitimate business and use part of your home exclusively and regularly for business purposes. You can deduct 100% of the improvement you make just to your home office.

The bathroom is the perfect place to express your home remodeling creativity. Whether it is light or dark finishes, all white or colorful cabinetry and even making a single bathtub the focal point of the bathroom, you can modernize your bathroom and make it future proof for many years to come.
You can set your own long-lasting trend by using decorative lighting, mix and matching tiles, using different tile wall designs, irregular shaped mirrors, floating shelves, stone showers, just to name a few. For example, you can make a functional shower room to include a seat or a bench inside the showering area to add a new level of comfort.
In the end, there are myriad of ways to refresh your bathroom design that can be long lasting, comfortable and luxurious.
One part of the house that can help you increase the value of your property is the kitchen. Whether you want to do a complete kitchen make over or you may just need a few things updated, the kitchen is a great investment to make.
In 2023, kitchen trends have evolved. The kitchen will now feel like an extension of the property instead of a utilitarian place to prepare food in. Combine this with smart appliances and your kitchen will be a place that no one will want to leave.
Adding an island to the kitchen space will help it overtake the living room as the social area of the house while including an unusual sink can help balance the aesthetic. You can opt for open shelves as well as matte countertops for your remodel. You can even hide appliances behind panels if that’s your sort of thing. Maybe a walk-in pantry is something you never knew you can’t live without!
Regardless of how you choose to redesign the kitchen, you will never regret the investment you make on a new kitchen remodel.
Wintertime is almost over and before you know it springtime will come and go and summer will be here. It’s not too early to think about revamping your outdoor space. No matter how big or small, your home’s outdoor space deserves some attention.
You can improve outdoor aesthetic by building a privacy fence. Not only does it help keep out unwanted intruders (and the occasional nosy neighbor), but it also helps reduce noise from nearby traffic. It also allows for children and pets to spend more valuable time outside.
Adding a deck is a fantastic way to extend your home and provide a new area to have entertainment outdoors. A simple deck would do just fine, but you may also want to include a bar area. A backyard deck is one of the best outdoor investments you can make on your property.
Let’s not forget about lighting. Adding outdoor lighting to your outdoors space can create a safer outdoor space but it can also bring out the best features of your outdoor space at night.
One of the advantages of remodeling your property is seeing how accessible your floor plan is. You can create an open floor plan by eliminating unnecessary walls between rooms, thus, making the area seem bigger and brighter.
If you have a second floor or a basement, you can think about adding storage place under the stairs. If you’re lacking room under the stairs, adding pullout drawers is a great option. You can also turn unused space and/or corners into usable spaces by building a bench with storage underneath that you can use as a pit stop for guests to hang their coats, backpacks, purses, etc.
And don’t forget about your garage! If you have a garage, there’s a lot of real estate in there to create storage space for gardening and automotive tools. You can incorporate overhead storage, so it doesn’t interfere with your vehicles.
Ultimately, you can make your property look like a brand new property without the need to rebuild it from the ground up. The options are infinite, and you can take all the time you need to make your property the finest looking house of 2023!
