Home Upgrades for 2022

HGTV is on constantly in your home if you're anything like us. You have Pinterest boards dedicated to your kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, etc. All of the Instagram accounts you follow are ones like Architectural Digest. Home renovations are fun, inspiring, and mood-boosting to the max, so if you're looking for some additional inspiration, keep reading for our top home upgrades for 2022.

Upgrade Your Water Heater

This upgrade is not glamorous, but it is luxurious when you think about all of the lovely showers and baths you'll be able to take once you upgrade to a tankless water heater. You won't have to worry about running out of hot water after your husband's marathon shower ever again!

Not only will a new tankless water heater allow for unlimited hot water, but it will also lower your energy bills by only heating the water that you need! While they are a bit more expensive to purchase and install, the energy efficiency more than makes up for it.

Picking the right water heater for your home will depend on a number of factors, including your home's size, how many residents there are, and a few other things. Our team can help you select the best model for your home and your family!

Upgrade Your Plumbing Fixtures

Moving onto a fun upgrade—plumbing fixtures! Upgrading your plumbing fixtures is a small way to improve the aesthetics of your space and make sure it matches your personal style without having to sacrifice an arm and a leg. Additionally, newer fixtures are far more efficient, especially if you opt for a WaterSense labeled piece. This will save you tons of water, making your household greener, as well as save you money in the process.

There are plenty of fixtures you can upgrade throughout your home; here are some of our favorites:

  • Bathroom and kitchen faucets
  • Showerheads
  • Bathtub spigots
  • Install a kitchen pot filler
  • And more!

Upgrade Your Garbage Disposal

Time for another unglamorous upgrade—the garbage disposal. While it won't do anything to improve the aesthetic of your home, it is crucial for the functionality and convenience in your kitchen. Whether you already have one installed or you don't have one at all, a newer model is the way to go. New garbage disposal will help to cut down on odors within your kitchen, but make sure to use it properly. While it is meant for food scraps, you can't toss everything down there.

These items, in particular, are known to cause problems:

  • Grease and fat
  • Bones
  • Starches like potatoes, pasta, and rice
  • Fibrous foods like celery
  • Coffee grounds and eggshells

Outdoor Living Space

Since 2020 we've been spending a lot more time in our outdoor spaces, and while it got the job done, there's a lot more you can do to make your outdoor living space more inviting. For instance, you7 can create a dedicated kitchen area with a BBQ, mini-fridge, and sink. A chic sitting area with comfy couches and chairs. And some kind of fire feature so you can utilize the space even on chilly nights.
