Statement Wallpaper Choices
Homeowners have shown a growing love of wallpapers and they are making brave choices of strong colours and striking patterns. Feature walls are now “statement walls” and feature walls are becoming feature rooms with all four walls wallpapered.
The importance of biophilic design has received a greater understanding year after year. Decades of research have shown that this design methodology aims to increase the building users’ connection with their natural environment. It delivers huge physical and mental health benefits.
Views of nature, large opening windows and doors, greater investment in landscaping, indoor plants and lots of natural light are key components of this design.
Connecting the indoors with the outdoors will increase the spaciousness of your home. You will improve the integration of these two areas by choosing the same floor finish and by renovating them simultaneously.
Home Spa Experience
Turning bathrooms into a spa experience is a very popular home renovation choice. Specialist bathroom fittings can turn your shower into a waterfall and steam shower. And if that’s not exciting enough, you can add multiple jet points and be sprayed from every direction and side.
Add subtle recessed LED channel lighting at low levels for subdued lighting out of your line of sight. The addition of epiphyte plants will increase relaxation and health benefits.
Better Outdoor Area Designs
The landscaping of gardens used to be the domain of the super-wealthy – no more. Gardens are no longer being left to the hands of a few green-fingered homeowners or garden services. The impact of landscaping is finally being taken on board by homeowners generally. The impacts are on:
- The value of the property
- The enjoyment of the property by the owners
- The delivery of mental & physical health benefits via medically-proven biophilic design benefits.
- The correct, full completion of a property’s design
Landscaping will address plants, pergolas, timber screens, parasols, evocative materials, dining, relaxation and rejuvenation.
The Ubiquitous Home Office
Not surprisingly, home offices have burgeoned over the last two years. It is important to have a dedicated workspace in your home for mental health, efficiency & orderliness reasons. Spend time designing an attractive workspace that inspires productivity.
Black Accent Elements
Creating black feature elements has grown in popularity during 2022. Black is an easy colour to work with in interior design and looks good in most styles. We have seen black staircases, bathrooms, kitchens and bedrooms. It can achieve a very cosy interior.
Black is a great option for making structural elements recede which enhances visual layering.
Sustainability is at the forefront of everyone’s minds and simple steps can make a big difference. Choose LED lighting options and install water-saving taps, shower heads and toilets. Upgrading to energy-efficient appliances is also a great benefit and, if budget allows, choose double-glazing windows, skylights and doors.
Incorporating any one of the above trends into your home renovation will deliver glamorous property benefits and increased enjoyment of your home.
