By now, the housing market has embraced the term “flexible” when it comes to homes. Homes now double as offices, schools, gyms, restaurants, and even entertainment centers.
It should be no surprise that home remodeling trends are also showing off this “flexibility” . Many home improvement teams that are used for remodeling, home additions, and home improvement projects, has seen a major uptick in flex spaces.
One particular client remodeled a room which served as both a gym and a guest house. When company arrives, the client’s Peleton bike gets rolled into a special closet while a Murphy bed descends for an instantly welcoming look. One space, two uses. Flexibility!
What else should you consider when remodeling your home?
Here are a few ideas:
1 – Identify Dead Zones in the Home
Whether we are talking about a spare room, a blank wall or even a nook under the stairs, think about how this can become flexible. Think about a plan and weigh out the haves vs. the wants. Then go from there.
2 – Think About Your Future Needs
Maybe you have a home classroom for the kids that you are getting much use out of now, but what will be the case five years from now? Keep an eye on the future when it comes to flex spaces. Maybe install solutions that would help give any room a second life.
3 – Don’t Forget About the Outside
Flex spaces can be for the outdoors too. Many desire for a backyard oasis. This can mean outdoor kitchens, year-round patios, pergolas, and cabanas all top homeowner wish lists. Think about habits and lifestyle. Do you like to watch TV outdoors? Are you someone that likes to grill outside and entertain? If any of these additions seem like they would enhance your quality of life, then it’s a good sign to move forward with a flex space.
