The trends in housing have changed over the years, and recently there’s been a shift in preference to features previously considered unconventional or tacky. This doesn’t necessarily mean that homeowners and buyers have compromised style for function, it’s just that the situation forced everyone to reconsider priorities and plan for the long haul. There are several trends worth noting in today’s homes, and you should think of including these in your next renovation, prioritize these features the next time you scout for your new house. Accessibility Accessibility has always been the staple of functional homes, but for buyers investing in their future, homes should be furnished to accommodate their years. This is especially true for baby boomers who are getting along in years; an accessible home means ramps instead of stairs, handle railings on bathrooms and along corridors, wider doors and hallways for better mobility. The floor plan only involves a single floor of space, most of the living space accommodated on the first floor at the very least. Maximize Storage Space Garages should accommodate more storage space, not only for vehicles but also for hoarded knickknacks men might drag into their man-caves. A couple starting out in a small home will eventually look for more space as the family grows, and since most clutter either end up in the attic or in the garage, you’ll have to make sure there’s enough room to stash stuff you can’t haul to your attic. Garage space is premium property in a family home, and it’s one of the few things you should invest on in yours.
