Home improvement trends change year on year, but it’s always a good idea to keep up with them so you can be sure your property remains valuable and relevant. You don’t have to redecorate or add something to your home each time a new trend comes in, but having a good idea of what’s ‘in’ can help you to keep things fresh. Let’s take a look at the biggest home improvement trends we’ve seen this year:
Matte Black Cabinets
If you’re looking for a cool new way to update your kitchen, matte black cabinets are all the rage right now. Who wants a shiny cabinet that shows off every single fingerprint anyway? Matte black is modern, easy to clean, and looks amazing.
Copper/Rose Gold Accents
It’s no longer about silver and gold. Copper and rose gold accents can look amazing in just about any home, and you can mix them with your current gold and silver ornaments if you really want to. Rose gold has grown in popularity so quickly over the years, so it’s no wonder that it’s a home decor trend now.
Forget Scandinavian style, and all of the ‘minimalist’ trends you’ve seen over the last few years. Bohemian is now what trend-chasers are going for. The great thing about bohemian decor is that it can still look clean and fresh. You just have to include a few chosen colours and patterns to create an eclectic look, and include some unusual accessories. This is a really fun look that doesn’t have to be perfect, and can work in any home.
Patterned tiles in the kitchen and bathroom can add bundles of personality. They make a great back splash, or even a feature wall if you’re brave enough. Plain tiles are so last year!
Neutral can help to sell your house faster, yes, but don’t you want a little personality in the form of your favourite colours? Jewel tones look amazing, and work perfectly with the bohemian theme we talked about earlier. Shades of teal, purple, turquoise, royal blue, and so many other colours can look amazing.
Making Your Home Smarter
Smart homes are the future. If you’re not slowly converting your home into a smart home yet, you’re going to get left behind. It can cost a lot of money in the short term, especially if you want to make the switch as quickly as possible. However, it’ll be worth it when it’s saving you a ton of money and time. Having a survey from a place like Allcott Associates before you go through with this is a good idea. That way, you can budget for the real cost of home improvements
And avoid costly mistakes while you’re at it.
Inspired By Nature
Finally, inspired by nature is a great trend to follow. Don’t be afraid to bring the outdoors in, using natural materials and different flowers/plants to bring your home to life.
