Home Improvement Trends for 2021

Renovations, home extensions and conservatories have never been more popular than they are at this very moment here in Dublin. Over the past year, there has been a dramatic shift in how many of us live our day to day lives. The impact of Covid-19 has brought about a seismic shift in relation to not only how we work, but where we work.

Work From Home Spaces

Last Spring, the widespread closure of office spaces led many of us to our spare rooms, attics & gardens, seeking out our own private work from home sanctuary. From our point of view here at 1st Choice Builders, this has been been music to our ears. Our work is adaptable by it’s very nature, and over the past year we have been tasked with creating various spaces designed to meet the ever changing work from home needs of our customers. Finding a quiet, productive space is the key to a successful work from home setup and each individual customer will typically require something different. This may range from an extension, an attic conversion or even the building of a purpose built sunroom. What remains consistent however, is our ability to not only match, but exceed the dreams and requirements of our customers.

More Time Spent at Home

Since many of us are spending more time at home than ever before, it seems like the most likely scenario that we begin to invest more time and effort into the creation of our perfect living space. The rise of working from home coupled with the travel restrictions brought upon by the pandemic have seen us turn our attention to our own homes, particularly from as investment alternative to a family trip abroad. Extensions, Attic Conversions and other home improvement pursuits have begun taking the place of family holidays abroad. Examples we’ve seen recently include transitions to open plan kitchens, home extensions and garage conversions. To put it simply, utilizing the space available to us has never been more rewarding.

Extending Our Living Environment

Extensions have always been popular here in Ireland. However, the unprecedented amount of time we have spent in our own homes over the past year had led many of us to bring the outdoors indoors. 1st Choice Builders have carried out various projects recently, which have seen us creation a whole new dynamic to our clients living spaces. Home extensions also offer our clients an unrivalled opportunity to maximize the space readily available to them. As well as this, house extensions can also add a great deal of value to your property in the long term. By extending our homes outwards, we provide ourselves with more personal space and the opportunity to make our dream home a reality.
