The search for the perfect home is an endless pursuit that is never fully completed. No matter whether it is comfort, function or fashion, there is always something in the house that you would like to have repaired, replaced or improved by house builders. We all love spending time thinking about new projects for the future, and it's always a good idea to know what you want before you start to make it happen. There is no time like today when it comes to planning your last renovation. So without further ado, these are 5 trends in home renovation that you should look out for in 2020.
Large laundry rooms
A not to be overlooked trend in the renovation of houses is the laundry room. In 2020 – far from the wild science fiction predictions of the past – people will create entire spaces dedicated exclusively to washing. Small and cramped spaces can make housework a serious inconvenience. It is therefore important to consider how much space you need in order to optimize the functionality when creating a washroom. Make sure that there is enough space for your washing machine and dryer, as well as storage space for washing power and various cleaning products. A wonderful additional touch is the installation of a place to hang hand-washed items. When planning your new washroom, also take your sanitary facilities into account so that you can budget effectively.

The importance of flexible spaces at the beginning of the new decade should not be underestimated. Trends in home renovation in 2020 include flexible spaces that can be remodeled for different purposes. There are numerous rooms in the house that can only be used a few times a year. The traditional living room or the second living area, for example, take up a lot of space when not in use. The installation of folding doors can divide the space for a study or a room to entertain the guests when they visit. Alternatively, the installation of a bed that can be folded down from the wall can transform the unused living room into an inviting guest room. Depending on your lifestyle, there are numerous convertible options to choose from.
Special work areas
As more and more people can work better from home, dedicated workspaces are more important than ever. This can be done by creating a corner or using an entire room. Functional storage solutions make a significant contribution to creating a suitable workplace, and sufficient sockets are also required for electrical devices such as laptops and printers. The possibilities for a home office area are unlimited and it is worth planning carefully to get exactly what you need.

Intelligent energy monitors
Sustainability is important and at the beginning of the new decade, environmentally friendly lifestyles are becoming increasingly popular. Tracking your consumption habits is now easier with power tracking devices. Installing energy monitors shows the amount of electricity you consume daily, weekly and monthly. This gives you a clear indication of where you need to adjust your consumption if necessary.
The houses may get smaller, but the kitchens get bigger and more spacious. The heart of the house should remain an important place, where regular cooking, eating and family celebrations are held. Open and shared dining areas make separate dining areas unnecessary, as kitchens combine these areas into one large room. In addition, adequate storage with sufficient seating space is a necessity for important functional devices that the whole family can use without any problems.
Planning is the key; whether you are renovating a specific room or your entire house. Before you turn to professional home builders, think about what you want in terms of your lifestyle needs. If only some of these renovation trends for 2020 are taken into account, stylish and functional rooms are created – perfect for the whole family.
