Lifestyle – Homeowners, shaking some of their recession weariness, are making plans again to upgrade to a new home or remodel, a survey from Better Homes and Gardens magazine finds. But their flirtation with a nicer home is still grounded in economic reality.

“Consumers are starting to give themselves permission to dream about a new home again and for the first time in several years actually are considering houses that are slightly larger than their existing homes,” said Jill Waage, editorial director for home content at the magazine, at the International Builders Show earlier this month.

“But they aren’t looking at something significantly larger. They want more space, but it is driven by both function and finances.”

According to a recent survey of Better Homes and Gardens readers, these are the six spaces that homeowners most want to see included in their new home or updated in their existing one:

– A separate laundry room

– More storage and built-ins

– A home office

– An outdoor grilling/living area

– A second bedroom with a private bath

– An everyday eating space close to the kitchen.

Which of these do you have in your home?? Which ones do you want to add?
