After a season in which the most popular home and garden tours have been cancelled or moved online, Columbus-area remodelers have decided it is finally time to welcome the public back to see, in person, some of their best work.

The Columbus chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) will host the region’s first major home tour of the year on Saturday and next Sunday. 

The tour will feature remodeling projects at seven homes, and one remodeler’s showroom showcase.

“The decision to move forward with the tour has been really hard, but we are very excited,” said Pam Patter, executive director of NARI of Central Ohio.

Special pandemic precautions will be taken for the tour, Patter said.

The number of people allowed at one time in each home will be limited, and social distancing and face masks will be required, she

Rebecca Regnier: COVID-19 inspires new ideas for homes – News – Monroe News – Monroe, Michigan

“An informal survey of my friends reveals the need for more than one office space,” Rebecca says about the work from home situation.

Has 2020 changed the way you look at your home?

A lot of people are rethinking the space they have and how to use it.

An informal survey of my friends reveals the need for more than one office space. A rethinking of “open concept.” Because now having a space to close off and soundproof walls so you can Zoom call quietly is making a lot of wish lists.

There’s always a desire for bigger kitchens, but these days it’s because we’re always in them. There’s also thought going into creative ways to use outdoor spaces during colder months.

And the need for better connectivity for school, work, and entertainment has become a need, not a want.

Experts, too, are pondering the way 2020 will impact the

Basement Renovation Now Adds Value and Additional Living Space to Homes of all Sizes

Whether You Live in a Rural or Urban Property, Basement Renovation Now Can Restore All Types of Basement.

The team at Basement Renovation Now recognizes that basements are often dead space in properties, with the space dark, cold and used for storage of unnecessary items and junk. But renovating a basement can bring a variety of benefits to a property and in a very short space of time.

One of the major benefits of renovating a basement is the immediate increase it brings to the property’s value. In an urban location, the basement or the attic are often the only ways of increasing the living space within a home, and the basement often comes with the added benefit of being more accessible by all the family. In addition to this, adding value such as this to a property can really differentiate it in a competitive market, and generate many more

Home Prices Skyrocketing Because Of Low Mortgage Rates, Not Because COVID-19 Increased Demand For Large Homes

Home prices are skyrocketing in most U.S. markets despite COVID- 19, a recession and a shockingly high unemployment rate.

Many analysts are speculating that part of the boom in house prices is caused by COVID-19 – that some people are concerned about COVID-19 contagion and don’t want to live any more in tight, multi-family buildings so they’re buying single-family homes in the suburbs. Another theory along the same lines is that because working from home has skyrocketed, some people want more space so they’re buying larger single-family homes, especially if their kids are home all day, too. This seems to be happening in metro New York City but what about places that weren’t hit as hard by COVID-19 and aren’t as dense as New York City?

Certainly the lower mortgage interest rates are a huge part of the current home price

Lowe’s Is Bringing New York Fashion Week From Runways to Homes

Key insight:

  • Fashion and interior design are linked by storytelling and self-expression.

With large swaths of the U.S. still hunkered down at home, Lowe’s is teaming with leading fashion designers Jason Wu, Christian Siriano and Rebecca Minkoff to bring New York Fashion Week from the catwalks into the home.

The collaboration is among chief brand and marketing officer Marisa Thalberg’s efforts to reimagine the home improvement retailer since joining in February.

“One of things I love about being at a brand of this scale is it allows you to do things in a different way,” she told Adweek.

The decision to launch the admittedly unexpected partnership—pairing a home improvement store with clothing, rather than interior, designers—was born out of the insight that the connection between style and home has never been stronger, Thalberg said.

It hinges on two ideas: that the home is central to the thinking of the fashion
