77% of American homeowners are planning home improvements this year, according to Fine Homebuilding. There are some home improvement trends that are nationwide – almost everyone would like a larger kitchen and an up-to-date bathroom – while some home renovations have more regional appeal. As South Shore building contractors, we’ve seen outdoor living become more and more important locally. Additionally, families are willing to invest to make their homes safer, more functional spaces for their children. Let’s look at what that means:
Outdoor Living: Home Improvements in the South Shore
South Shore summers are too nice to miss. Enjoy the benefits of living in one of the most beautiful parts of the country by adding outdoor living friendly features to your home. Custom built porches, decks, and balconies are tailored for the family’s preferences while boosting curb appeal and the home’s value. Gorgeous French doors make a lovely entrance way from the home and make taking in the view a pleasure all four seasons.
Sunrooms: Enjoy Outdoor Living & Extra Space
Sunrooms have been around for a very long time. When you tour the old great homes in Europe, it’s not unusually to find a room composed mostly, if not entirely, of glass. These sunrooms are also called conservatories, and they’re ideal for enjoying the beauty of the outdoors and the comfort of your home at the same time. We’ve seen many South Shore families designing sunrooms that serve double duty as playrooms. They’re also great for entertaining.
