Home Refurbishment Trends to Look Out For in 2018

With 2017 having passed and the New Year begun, many of us will have begun to think about our next home improvement project. To offer some inspiration, we’ve listed a few of the big home refurbishment trends set to sweep the UK in 2018:

Colour

interior decoration

Continuing a trend that has been widely adopted over recent years, external and internal decoration that favours light colouring and balanced tones will gain further popularity in 2018. This adjustment to a more mellow style in British homes has seen an upturn in the use of whites, pastels and softer textures and a reduction in the use of richer more contrasting palettes.

Light

This year homeowners will be doing more than ever to make sure that sunlight is streaming through their windows and into their homes. The desire to get more natural light (and heat) into domestic properties has led to an upturn in window refurbishments and restorations as they become a key feature of large communal rooms and a centre point of internal and external decor.

Space

open plan living

As decorative trends swing more toward brighter and airier interiors, there is a growing call to make the most of the space that our homes offer. 2018 will see a continued focus on ‘open-plan’ living spaces, with homeowners seeking innovative design and storage solutions that help to create extra room and fresh and uncluttered home environments.

Exterior refurbishment

2018 looks set to be the year that Britons upgrade the external appearance of their homes, with a marked increase in refurbishment projects on the outer features of domestic properties. This includes restoring key features such as windows and door frames, re-painting external walls and finally tackling those overgrown gardens.
