Exploring the Home Renovation Trends of 2024

As we enter 2024, home renovation takes on new dimensions, blending functionality with aesthetic appeal. In this blog, we’ll explore the top three home renovation trends of the year. Each trend reflects the evolving needs and style of homeowners.

From transforming starter homes into forever homes and fortifying residences against extreme weather to adding a fresh coat of paint for a renewed look, these trends highlight the innovative approaches shaping the home improvement landscape in 2024. Join us as we explore these exciting trends, offering insights and inspiration for your next home renovation project.

Investing in The Home You Have

In 2024, a significant trend emerges as homeowners opt to invest in and enhance their current living spaces. This year, many are shifting their focus from seeking new properties to reinventing and enriching their existing homes.

This trend is particularly noticeable among first-time homebuyers who secured “starter homes” at favorable mortgage rates in recent years. These starter homes are now evolving into “forever homes.”

Homeowners are realizing the value of their current spaces. They are looking to make them more functional, comfortable, and tailored to their evolving needs. The low mortgage rates locked in previously act as an added incentive to stay put and invest in home improvements. These renovations range from simple cosmetic updates to significant structural changes, all aimed at making the current home more livable and appealing for the long term.

Home Hardening For Extreme Weather

With increasing climate variability, home hardening against extreme weather is becoming a priority. Homeowners are seeking renovations that offer protection from floods, wildfires, and other natural disasters. This includes installing stronger, insulated windows and adding whole-house generators. Additionally, some homes are installing solar-power systems with energy storage. These upgrades not only provide security during power outages but also promote sustainable energy use.

James Hardie Siding

Additionally, a key upgrade is replacing the older siding with James Hardie Hardie Plank Fiber Cement siding. This durable material is designed to withstand fluctuating climates, offering enhanced protection and longevity. Hardie Plank Fiber Cement siding is renowned for its resistance to warping, rotting, and fading. This makes it an ideal choice for areas prone to extreme weather variations. It effectively shields your home from heavy rains, strong winds, and even fire, contributing to overall safety and reduced maintenance costs. By choosing Hardie Plank siding, homeowners enhance their home’s resilience and curb appeal thanks to the wide array of styles and colors available. This makes it a practical yet aesthetically pleasing solution for those looking to fortify their homes against the challenges of a changing climate.

A Fresh Coat For A Fresh Start: Painting Your Home

As we step into the year 2024, one noticeable trend gaining significant traction is the rejuvenation of homes through a fresh coat of paint. In the PNW we are fortunate to have local companies like Sherwin-Williams and Rodda Paint. These local companies understand the ever-changing weather and craft paint that offers long lasting protection.

But painting your home isn’t just about aesthetics; it’s a vital protective measure that adds value and extends your home’s lifespan.
