Top Remodeling Trends for 2011, Louisville Conventions

According to a National Association of Realtors survey, the following are the top remodeling trends for 2011. These aren’t specific home improvement projects but more like mindsets and attitudes towards a homeowner improving their property.

  1. Save Money: Remodel Your Bathroom
  2. Must-Do Remodeling Projects
  3. Warming Up The House
  4. Getting Decked Out
  5. Hiring A Great Contractor
  6. Paying in Cash
  7. Opening Up Rooms
  8. Bronze Age
  9. Going Green
  10. Industrial Flair
  11. Creating Relaxation Space
  12. Planning Ahead

As this relates to Louisville real estate, I’ve seen several of these in action. If I had to create the Top 5 Louisville Remodeling Trends mine would look like this.

  1. Updating Bathrooms
  2. Updating Kitchens
  3. Finishing Basements
  4. Updating Home Exterior
  5. New Flooring

And while we’re on the topic, don’t forget that this weekend is the Louisville Build, Renovate and Landscape Expo at the Kentucky International Convention Center. The program runs from January 14-16. Tickets are just $5. Here are the hours:

Friday: 2 p.m.-8 p.m.
Saturday: 10 a.m.-8 p.m.

Should be a great event!
