When I think of remodeling, I tend to think of the empty-nesters who are finally getting the upgrade they have been wanting for years. But, according to the Pew Research Center, the Millennial generation (1981-1996) accounted for more than a third of all home purchases in the United States.
Millennials grew up with technology, so they are comfortable in a tech-based environment. They see the benefits of home technology which make them excited to be a part of the design process because they have done their research and have ideas of what they want in their remodel!
Here are a few remodeling projects that are popular amongst millennials:
Oversized islands: Millennials love entertaining. So having a large space to prepare meals and gather around is ideal.
Appliances that are app and/or voice controlled: New technology can monitor when you need to add things to your grocery list from your fridge or a Samsung smart oven that can be set to preheat from your mobile device.
Wall mounted docking station: These are growing in popularity for tablets & phones. It allows you to have your phone conveniently with you while you are being a chef in the kitchen.
Touch or touchless faucets: Millennials are all about thinking smarter, which is precisely what a touch or touchless faucet provides when your hands are full in the kitchen.
Sleek or attention-grabbing sinks: This can make a perfect statement piece in your kitchen and millennials are taking notice of it!
