Top 5 Most In-Demand Home Upgrades in 2018

2018 is here and updating homes with savvy new upgrades to enhance your lifestyle and make home life even easier is on many to-do lists for this year. Here are the top 5 most in-demand home upgrades in 2018.

1.) Smart Lights: Smart lighting controls are a brilliant idea for indoor and outdoor use. These automatic systems are catching on because they save energy, save money and can be tailored to suit your family’s lifestyle.

2.) Matte Finishes: Matte will be major in 2018, especially in the kitchen. “The next new trend in surfaces are unique textures such as linen granite and hammered basalt tiles—both in a modern matte finish,” says Sarah Stacey of Sarah Stacey Interior Design in Austin, Texas. Matte appliances will also come on strong next year.

3.) Outdoor Living: In 2018, homeowners will continue the trend of expanding their living space to the great outdoors. More folks plan to put in pools, outdoor barbeques and outdoor furniture that looks like an extension of the living room. And the roof decks that bring indoor and outdoor spaces together will become increasingly popular on private residences in 2018.

4.) Tankless Water Heaters: Saving money and energy is a priority every year, but more people will be installing tankless water heaters in 2018. These devices provide only “as-needed” hot water, at a rate of about two to five gallons per minute. They’re available in both gas and electric models, and because they’re smaller than traditional tanks, they’re also great if you want to save space.

5.) Guest Suites: Extended families living under one roof are becoming more common—and that may now mean the addition of an in-law suite (complete with small kitchen, full bath, and bedroom). To keep elder loved ones safe and comfortable, these suites include slip-proof flooring, fewer stairs, and wider doorways to accommodate wheelchairs. Note: These upgrades are great for those who wish to age in place, too.
