Top 3 Most In-Demand Home Upgrades in 2018

Planning a remodel? Updating your home with savvy new upgrades to enhance your lifestyle and make home life even easier is on many to-do lists for homeowners this year. Here are the top 3 most in-demand home upgrades in 2018.

1.) Matte Finishes: Matte will be major in 2018, especially in the kitchen. “The next new trend in surfaces are unique textures such as linen granite and hammered basalt tiles—both in a modern matte finish,” says Sarah Stacey of Sarah Stacey Interior Design in Austin, Texas. Matte appliances will also come on strong next year.

2.) Tank-less Water Heaters: Saving money and energy is a priority every year, but more people will be installing tankless water heaters in 2018. These devices provide only “as-needed” hot water, at a rate of about two to five gallons per minute. They’re available in both gas and electric models, and because they’re smaller than traditional tanks, they’re also great if you want to save space.

3.) Guest Suites: Extended families living under one roof are becoming more common—and that may now mean the addition of an in-law suite (complete with small kitchen, full bath, and bedroom). To keep elder loved ones safe and comfortable, these suites include slip-proof flooring, fewer stairs, and wider doorways to accommodate wheelchairs.
