Austin Home Renovation

Top 4 Home Renovation Ideas for 2021

By Inspiration, Resources

We’ve officially made it to 2021! It’s safe to assume that we speak for most of us when we say a new year couldn’t have been more welcomed this time around. With every new year comes new home renovation and home decor trends. Below is our list of the top 5 home renovation ideas that we strongly believe will trend throughout 2021.

Home Office Conversions

There’s no telling when some of us will return to the office, so work from home spaces are continuing to get more extraordinary. The pandemic has continued to challenge us to discover new ways to maximize every bit of space in our homes, and we predict this trend to not slow down in 2021. We’d love to help you convert unused parts of your home into a home office sanctuary that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing.

Backyard Oases

Spending more time at home doesn’t have to be boring, and an oasis in your own backyard provides quality entertainment. Outdoor kitchens and backyard decks have become all the rage, because they allow even more room for safe social distancing when entertaining at the house. If you want to get extra fancy with it you can add cozy outdoor furniture and drop down screens to protect against mosquitos. Outdoor kitchens, backyard patios and other home renovations that create true backyard oases will continue to trend throughout this new year; we’re happy to help you create your own!

Bathroom Facelifts

The spas may be closed, but you can create your own personal spa with a bathroom facelift. A beautiful bathroom sanctuary can actually help reduce stress. According to a 2020 Houzz Bathroom Trends Study, two in five homeowners (41%) who renovated a master bathroom say they rely on their new space for rest and relaxation. This means that a bathroom facelift can also help you through some pandemic stress! All of these reasons are why we predict 2021 to be full of bathroom facelifts.

In Home Entertainment Spaces

In addition to spas being closed, many movie theaters and entertainment facilities are closed as well. But have no fear — you can create your own entertainment space in your home. Media rooms, home gyms and other in-house entertainment spaces will continue to trend throughout 2021. Now is the perfect time to make your home the fun, functional and relaxing place that you’ve always wanted it to be!

Is Your Home Ready for the Holidays?

By Holiday

The holiday season seems to sneak up quicker every year, leaving us to ask, “Where does the time go?”. The year of 2020 was a strange and difficult one, to say the very least, and the holidays approached in the blink of an eye while most of us were social distancing at home. Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hannakuh, New Years Eve and the days in between may look different for most of us this time around. We may end up enjoying all of the holidays from the comfort of our own homes instead of going on a big trip. The silver lining to being stuck in the house is that this is the perfect opportunity to get your home in the condition that you’ve always wanted it to be in for the holidays.

Make Sure Your Backyard is Ready

Living in Austin, Texas means that the winter months are perfect for hanging out in the backyard. Outdoor kitchens make for great holiday get togethers with family, friends and neighbors for a number of reasons. An outside kitchen allows you to host social distance holiday gatherings in the privacy of your own backyard. It’s easy to maintain a safe distance from guests when outdoor socializing, so it’s one of the safest options if you decide to host this year. If you have the backyard space, now is the best time to transform it into your outdoor oasis for the holidays! 

Make Sure Your Dining Room is Ready

Beyond getting new furniture, there are many dining room renovations that you can do to get the area in tip-top shape for the holidays. You can update the light fixtures to something both aesthetically pleasing and welcoming. You can also paint the dining room walls with an inviting accent color in order to add an element of comfort to your holiday get together environment. We’re happy to help with the painting and fixture projects. 

We Can Help Get Get Your Home Ready for The Holidays

We know that the holidays may look a lot different for you these days, but we hope that you are able to spend it with your loved ones and find joy in the simplicities of your home. If you decide that this is the year to revamp your backyard area, dining room, or anything else we’d love the opportunity to help you out. Contact us for a free quote today!

Five Reasons to Renovate Your Austin Home During Social Distancing

By Resources

You’ve probably stumbled upon this blog post, because you’re social distancing at your home in Austin, Texas and exploring renovation ideas. You may also be wondering if it is the right time to take the plunge and commit to home improvement projects right now. We’ve compiled the list of reasons why it is a great time for Austin home renovations and updating your Texas home during these days of social distancing.

1. You’re Home More Than Ever 

You’re probably spending more time at home than ever before and with Texas mandated “shelter in place” and “stay at home” orders. This means that those pesky home improvement projects you’ve been putting off for the past several years are staring you smack in the face. You know what we’re talking about: That kitchen renovation project that’s been in the back of your mind for years. That new pool cabana, or perhaps a facelift on that powder room. With everyone working from home, now might be the time to repurpose that spare bedroom and tune it into a comfortable modern office. It is the perfect time for you to tackle some of these projects.

2. You Have The Time To Imagine The Changes You Want

Many distractions are now eliminated and it’s the perfect time to sit down and put some thought into what your dream home might look like, and how to accomplish that. The hardest part is always getting started, and the biggest step to starting home improvement projects is taking the time to visualize the changes that your home deserves. Use this time to plan what is possible.

3. Your Entertainment Budget Can Be Used On Home Renovation Projects

Travel and entertainment is very restricted right now, so you’re probably finding it a lot easier to save money during this time (if you were lucky enough to keep your job through the pandemic). The money that you would have usually spent on a big trip to Europe, or some fancy nights on the town can totally be redirected on Austin home renovations in 2020. Bonus Points: this increases the value of your home, so the ROI speaks for itself.

4. Your House Will Be Ready To Entertain Once It’s Safe

We know it might be awhile before you feel safe hosting a big dinner party or backyard Bar B Qs, but now is the perfect time to get your home ready for when that day comes. Get your home ready to be the one that everyone wants to visit. A freshly renovated home will be a blast to show off once the time comes to host friends and family again. In the meantime, you can still show off your new home renovations during Zoom happy hours!

5. You Can Safely Hire An Austin Home Renovation Team With Proper Procedures

We understand that you might have some hesitation when it comes to hiring someone to come work on your house. There are safe ways to go about this during this day and age of COVID-19, and we at Austin Home Renovations are taking it very seriously. We are taking every necessary step to ensure the safety of your family and ours while maintaining the quality of service you have come to expect.

You may have the budget and time to reimagine your dream projects, but not everyone has the patience and skills to tackle such endeavors on their own. Working from home is also taking up a great deal of time right now, so Austin Home Renovations is here to do the heavy lifting for you. Contact us today for an in-home or on-line consultation and let us show you how we can turn your dreams into reality.
