Remodeling Trends


With May being National Home Remodeling Month, many homeowners are thinking about how they can improve their homes. But when there is work to be done, where should the focus lie? According to the results of the NAHB’s quarterly Remodeling Market Index (RMI), kitchen and bathroom remodeling remain the two most common types of projects. This trend has been fairly consistent – with kitchens and bathrooms occasionally exchanging leadership – since the NAHB started asking the question in 2001.

According to Eye On Housing, “Whole house remodeling continues to recover from its low point during the depths of the housing downturn.” Before the collapse whole house remodeling was a common project for over 40% of remodelers. That number then dropped by half. In 2014, the NAHB saw that number once again rise above 40%.
