Two years of the COVID-19 pandemic has certainly changed a lot. We’ve changed how we live inside our homes, and what rooms we’re using. We’re also changing what renovations we need to ensure our homes are more liveable, better for working from home, and more environmentally friendly. Our changing needs has led to more interest in certain renovation inquiries and from that we can predict what sort of renovation trends to expect for the rest of 2022.
Owner of Focus Construction, Tim Maile says “In 2022 we’re focusing more on three main categories:
- Green building – Everything from energy conservation to using non-toxic and sustainable materials, to an overall greener build.
- Multi-purpose rooms – Flexible spaces for home gyms, home offices, and guest rooms so these rooms can function in duality, especially when size and space are limited.
- Natural light – Skylights, extensions, walk-out basements, upgrading to larger windows, and transoms are some ways we’ll look to bring more natural light into your home.”
