Environmental Design Trends and Research 2021: Healthy Home Rising Demand

    The health of our families depends on the health of the home, since most Americans spend about 90 percent of every day indoors and about 35 million homes in U.S. metropolitan areas have one or more health hazards, according to the National Center for Healthy Housing.

    While the interest in healthy homes had been steadily on the rise, a 2021 survey from YORK found that indoor air quality is the home improvement priority for 81 percent of homeowners.

    The essential elements of a home’s construction, like the windows and doors, can positively impact some of the top concerns of homeowners, including the amount of natural lighting, fresh air, heat transfer and environmental noise.
