According to a recent article in the Baltimore Business Journal, home remodeling projects are finally on the rise. The American Institute of Architects (AIA) Home Design Trend Survey reveals that remodeling projects have increased for two consecutive quarters, a first in the time since the recession began back in 2008.
However, it’s clear that things have changed a lot since then, as evidenced by the types of projects homeowners are undertaking. Specialty features and single-use spaces are a thing of the past, and practical projects are here to stay. AIA’s Chief Economist, Kermit Baker had this to say about the current home design trends.
We are far removed from the days when there was strong demand for home theaters and saunas. Instead, the last several years have seen consumer priorities based more on practicality, ease and affordability over luxury.
