Most Popular Remodeling Trends
In Homes Nationwide

Home renovations have been on the rise since the pandemic began, and as 2021 continues, so does the remodeling of houses.

countertops-remodelingBasurto Painting came across a presentation put on by Qualified Remodeler Magazine about the top trends across the United States in 2020-2021. We hope you find this information as interesting as we do.

According to Qualified Remodeler Magazine, 73% of surveyed homeowners wanted to change their home design due to the pandemic. Only 27% of those surveyed said they did not need to change their dwelling in any way.

Many of those homeowners wanted a combination of the following changes to their homes:

  • Shifts in layout preferences — 29%
  • Shift to a new mix of remodeling types, like adding on bathrooms, bedrooms, and kitchens — 29%
  • Shifts in design styles (like modern, traditional, or farmhouse) — 2%
