As they say, the home is where the heart is, so make your space one to enjoy. This year has seen a huge spike in the number of people undergoing household renovation projects and looking to revamp their home, creating a property that is brimming with personality and warmth. Especially since a lot of us have transitioned to working from home, there’s no wonder we have started to spot those little flaws and areas for improvement.
Whether you are looking to work with the best architects in London to make some significant household changes or are just looking for some inspiration to liven up particular rooms in your house, we’ve noticed some key trends which can complement many different aesthetics.
Merge the indoors and outdoors
As much as we love to put our feet up and enjoy a relaxing drink on the patio after we unwind following a busy day, the typical British weather doesn’t always make this a reality! We love the addition of glass rooms and large patio doors, letting the natural light flood in as we overlook the garden from the warmth of our house. If this is outside of your capabilities, bring in some greenery by picking out your favorite plants. As well as adding a touch of color in the home, plants are great for purifying the air and boosting our mood.
Make a statement with your floor
If your room is need of some wow-factor, take a look at the flooring and give it a well needed refresh. We’re absolutely loving a bold floor design, bringing a new level of décor to the room and creating a well needed focal point without having to switch up your furniture. Whether you opt for a simple and sleek matte finish for a premium feel or opt for an eye-catching patterned tile to add some excitement, the options are endless.
Although neutral shades are a big hit at the moment, they are a timeless classic which can withstand the test of time. A neutral palette not only looks classy and sophisticated, but can also impact your mood and create a relaxing space for you to unwind in. Whether you choose to combine natural colored walls with simplistic furniture for a minimalistic appearance or pair it with pops of color that can be changed up as you please, put your own spin on the trend. If you’re on a budget and not looking to transform a room completely, look into accessories such as wicker baskets, rope rugs and decorative pieces made from eco-friendly materials.
Catch the eye with block colors
Block colors have been popular for some years now, but we’ve seen some inventive ways to incorporate this into modern designs over the last year. Adding color blocks to the wall behind furniture to create a simplistic frame or using abstract designs to brighten up a space can make a huge difference when done right, oozing personality and fun. Choose colors that work with your color palette or switch up your feature color as the season changes, keeping things fresh and allowing you to redesign a room with minimal budget.
