2017 Home Renovation Trends
- Baby Boomer Extensions
As the Baby Boomer generation continues to age, they are modifying their homes to suit their changing needs. Accessibility marks a big home renovation change in 2017 so that people can stay in their homes as they grow older. From simple things such as making transitions between rooms smoother to removing stairs to create open designs, Baby Boomer home owners have their eye on extending the years they spend in their homes.
Bathroom renovations are a popular open when it comes to renovating for accessibility and common updates include removing the bathtub and installing walk in showers with seating and using higher toilets.
- Open concept kitchens
This trend is not new but will continue to drive home renovation plans in 2017. Open kitchens eliminate isolation between cooking and family space and support the desire to have families spending time together. One of the ways this trend comes together is by connecting spaces using an island or table type seating with sight lines into a family or living room.
If it’s time for a kitchen renovation, find a contractor that can work with your space and give you the open concept kitchen that will change the way you use your home.

Basement renovations will continue to see impressive lighting options, home theatres and sound systems that will impress friends and family as well as heating and air conditioning technology upgrades that save home owners money.
