Doing Some Remodeling? Keep Canines In Mind
Home remodeling and design trends in Pasadena Real Estate and nationally always go through major shifts. Styles, colors, and patterns constantly shift while structural and feature changes change less often. The latest change to features has been those that take in the needs of the family dog and it could equate to remodeling profits for you.
New construction communities are being built with dog runs and dog parts at the heart of the development while built-in features like dog bowl and dog bed platforms are being built into cabinets.
Just like we saw a movement to make functional mudrooms across the country because it just makes sense, adapting that same mudroom to accommodate washing a pup makes for a very interesting evolution in design.
Pet ownership in the US is at an all-time high and the next generation of home buyers, the Millennial, are the largest segment of pet owners.
68% of American households have a pet accounting to over 84.6 million households making this a significant sector of the US home buying market.
So the next time you are considering doing some home improvement or remodeling, take the pets into mind. Formally integrating design features to accommodate them will make life easier and make your property stand out for the next buyer that will eventually come along.
