Spring Remodeling Trends

Organization takes center stage as homeowners cut back on spring remodeling, according to the latest Zillow® Digs® Home Design Trend Report.

While more than half (59%) of homeowners are planning remodels, the expected median spring renovation spending is down to $700, which is the lowest amount of planned spending since Zillow started recording home improvement spending trends.

Instead of investing in larger-scale remodels, homeowners are getting creative with how they spend their dollars, and are planning smaller projects that are better suited for spring cleaning and organizing.

This one-of-a-kind trend report depends on a survey of members of the Zillow Digs Board of Designers, a group of design experts from across the country, and the most popular storage and organization photos on Zillow Digs.

Built-in cabinets, cubbies with baskets or trays, and repurposed antique furniture are the three biggest home organization trends according to the report.

With Zillow Digs, homeowners can browse more than 400,000 photos of interiors and exteriors of real homes, organized by space, style, cost and color. Patent-pending Digs Estimates help people understand what it would cost in their geographic location to recreate the actual bathrooms and kitchens they are viewing. In addition, Zillow Digs users can collect images, share favorites and follow others for inspiration, from the Zillow Digs App for iPhone® and iPad® or on the Web.
