We’re expecting either full-on renovations or simple upgrades to appliances and spaces this year. Whether you brighten up the space with more cabinetry, or go full on and create a large multi-purpose kitchen island that can be a prep station, work space, or quick dining/drinks spot with modern bar stools, the kitchen is the place to be this year.
Our favourite trends for kitchen upgrades and renovations this year include:
- Quality quartz countertops
- Contrast with dark countertops and light cabinetry
- Wall-to-wall cabinetry for ample storage and use of space
- Energy-efficient upgrades, such as new windows, lights and temperature controls

An easy way to make a living space instantly cozy and comfortable is to add an electric fireplace. If your home has the capacity for a wood burning fireplace, upgrade yours to a functional wood burner. Whatever your budget, there are fireplaces that fit even the strictest remodeling cash allowances, so this is definitely within your range this year.
Working by the fireplace or simply enjoying a change of pace by plopping down to read a book after a long day is an easily affordable luxury this year. Whether you’re enjoying this activity on a late summer evening or staying inside on a cold winter’s weekend, fireplaces are sure to bring joy to your home.
There’s nothing better after a long day than a nice soak. Escape your responsibilities for a little while and transport yourself to an instant state of relaxation by upgrading your bathroom this year. Simple changes can go a long way here, and your sore shoulders will definitely thank you for this investment.
