More than half (52 percent) of homeowners in the country plan to make home improvements or additions this fall, according to the Zillow Digs Fall Home Improvement Trend and Spending Survey, compared to 60 percent in the summer. Homeowners plan to spend an average of $1,000, which is less than during the summer.
While the percentage of homeowners planning remodels for nearly every room fell from the summer survey, homeowners will continue to focus on home office or playroom remodels in the fall. Parents are sprucing up indoor play areas to keep the kids active and occupied while looking for ways to update their own workplaces for the season ahead.
As the line between work and home continues to blur, homeowners are looking for quiet and clean spaces where they can wrap up leftover projects from the office or work from home during those fall rainy days and winter snowstorms. For home offices, the majority are designing home office spaces for dual purposes, such as adding a daybed for napping, a desk doubling as a guest bedroom nightstand, or a mini kitchen for the home office coffee pot.
Families want play spaces that keep kids climbing, sliding, swinging and jumping as wells as nearby areas for adults to stay active such as a workout area or billiards table. For playrooms, designers usually advise creating gender-neutral spaces that everyone can enjoy, with durable, eco-friendly materials such as carpet tiles and no-VOC paint. Designers also encourage homeowners to make the space practical so it can be converted to a general-use space after it’s had its day as a playroom. Home improvement and remodeling projects can increase the value of your home in Denver. Denver real estate includes a variety of historic homes in old, established neighborhoods that have become some of the most popular places to live in the area, and home improvement and remodeling projects have increased home values considerably.
