Remodeling Trend Watch

We’re seeing the following projects as our most commonly requested remodels:

Over-Garage additions. Whether it’s for a mother-in-law suite or a family room many homeowners want to utilize this potential space to expand their living area.

Ranch conversions. Corvallis has an abundance of 60’s and 70’s era ranch homes. These houses can be updated and adapted nicely to meet the needs of today’s family.

Master suite additions. People are deciding to stay in their homes and adding a master suite as their own personal luxury space.

Facelifts to the fronts of houses. By incorporating an addition onto the front of a home or reworking the entry the entire facade of the house can be altered, thereby dressing up a home’s curb appeal.

Better relationships to the rear yard and outdoors. Homeowners want spaces that relate to the rear yard for entertaining and play space for families.

Family room/kitchen connections. If you open up these two spaces, they connect to each other and reflect a more casual way of living and entertaining.

Kitchen remodels. The kitchen is the hub of the house and families want this space to be efficient, attractive, and welcoming. Islands and peninsulas are popular design features. Countertop materials of granite and other solid surfaces are in high demand, as are tile backsplashes.

When thinking about your own project consult with a designer, architect, or designer/builder to discover how to unlock the potential of your own home. Meet with your builder early on in the design process to weigh design considerations with function, cost and value to make the most educated decisions possible.
