Your Definitive 2020 Home Renovation Style Guide
Whether you’re fixing plumbing issues, updating your walls with a fresh coat of paint, or improving your bathroom flooring, owning a home means there’s always something to be repaired, replaced, or upgraded! The world of renovation in Auckland is set to keep growing, especially now that homeowners, architects, and builders are all striving to create more sustainable, self-sufficient homes. Today, we look into projected renovation trends for 2020!
More homeowners are looking into ways on how they can maximise their total floor area utilising open spaces. This year, multipurpose areas and open floor plans are set to prevail in the home improvement scene. Integrating different living areas into an expansive multipurpose space is a practical solution for families who enjoy more space and an airier feel, as opposed to constricting floor plans that are partitioned with walls.
Bathrooms are also expected to become a major point of focus this 2020. Bathrooms no longer cater to just basic personal care. More than just a room for showers and morning routines, bathrooms have an amplified purpose, becoming a place where individuals can relax after their long day. Plus, bathrooms are one of the few spaces wherein one can disconnect digitally to recharge one’s self. Thanks to modern design, bathrooms are now designed with modern features such as built-in saunas and spa pools, complemented by botanical imagery to complete the calming environment.
Architectural design this year will also lean more towards sustainability. Designers will take advantage of how they can build houses that can receive a substantial amount of sunlight, making homes more energy-efficient. From solar roofs through to skylights and LED motion-activated accent lights, designers will integrate artificial lighting in the most sustainable way possible.
Custom kitchen cabinetry
The kitchen is one of the most integral parts of the home, so it follows that kitchen remodelling projects will continue to be a staple of renovation. The design trend for 2020 forecasts the creation of customisable cabinetry, maximising storage space through drawer organisers, smart pantry systems, utilization of soft-close drawers, and custom sizing. There’s also a great possibility of interconnecting kitchens to dining and living areas with central islands separating the areas for a more open-plan approach.
Glass makes a prominent entrance in this year’s renovation trends. Aesthetically pleasing while highly functional, terraces with glass enclosures and glass curtains allow homeowners to enjoy the space fully, taking in great views, especially in good weather.
