When you want your home to look fresh and new, you have two choices: sell the current one and buy a new one, or remodel your current home. Remodeling is much easier than selling and buying, and you don’t have to give up your friendly neighbors and great location. Remodeling and renovating can take several forms and can be as simple as redoing the layout of the plants in your yard to having a full-on interior decor redo. In fact, changing appliances, re-landscaping, and giving the inside of the home a new paint job are some of the most common ways in which people choose to improve their homes, according to Statista. You’ll want to call an interior decorator and look at additional trends that you might want to bring into your home. Here are some things you should consider for your renovation.
Making Your Home More Sustainable
From removing fluorescent light fixtures to improving the insulation, making your home more sustainable and eco-friendly is one trend you may want to consider. Fluorescent bulbs, like the long ones used in some kitchen light fixtures, require disposal via hazardous waste procedures, and the bulbs don’t last that long compared to LEDs. Better insulation helps cut down on energy usage for heating and cooling. New dual-pane windows also help keep you more comfortable than single-pane windows. Chances are that there is something in every room that can be improved so that the effect makes your home much more sustainable.
Going More Natural
Trends are going both ways here; some people are making their homes look bolder with brighter colors and lots of marble, but others are going the more natural route, using softer colors and natural fabrics for their interior decor. This stems from the shift to working at home that occurred during the first years of the pandemic. People want to be cozy now, and it shows in design trends. An interior decorator can help you choose color schemes and materials.
Making Life a Little More Luxurious
Life may be cozier in your naturally designed home, but it doesn’t have to be simple. Another trend is to make the home a little more luxurious and relaxing, and that means installing more smart appliances to do things for you or adding high-end wood flooring in place of that vinyl tile. What you consider luxurious may differ from what someone else desires, so you’ll want to have a good consultation session with an interior decorator to decide what your vision is for your space.
