New Year Home Improvements to Consider in 2019

The new year has paved the way for people to find their new beginnings by getting a fresh start with their lives. With the much-needed yearly resolutions also comes the inevitable home refurnishing which is sure to follow the trending colour themes and current homemaking trends, which always change to adopt the definition of what is ‘contemporary’. If you’re a homeowner who’s interested in being up to date in spicing up your home’s motif, then here are some design tips that might make it easier for you the next time you pull an all-nighter planning your home’s new look.

Sustainable kitchens

Kitchens can be a pain to maintain if you’re living with several people. Finding durable materials that can withstand not just the dangers in the kitchen but also the wear and tear inflicted by people can make it easier for you to extend your kitchen’s lifespan. Kids are often quick to make a mess of things, and if you’re not careful, your granite worktop might become covered with scratches and stains from mishandling. Thankfully, you can simply do a quick search online for: “Where can I purchase granite worktops near me?” Many manufacturers have made it easier for their clients to contact them to place an order, as many now provide a glossary of their products including coating services, for example, the ones listed here.

Modern bathrooms

Going green is now a popular trend in today’s times. Products such as reusable straws and hybrid taxis all contribute to a greener earth. With the current movement to make homes more energy efficient and homeowners more respectful of the environment, many people choose to adopt modern smart boilers that can detect and adjust temperature appropriately, which helps in keeping expenses at a record low. Make sure to double check if your boiler is up to standard, as you could be fined for having an older model that isn’t just using too much energy but also releasing too much pollution into the environment.

 

Spacious hallways

What people need to focus more on in this day and age is having wider walk spaces. Decluttering your home isn’t just about keeping things organised but also keeping things comfortable. Having towers of storage boxes lined up in your cramped hallway is no way to maintain your home’s look. Focus on wall fixtures and narrower furniture this year by letting go of the old and bringing in newer and more practical items for your home.

 

Versatile lighting

It seems that every year, people keep on finding more ways to develop different lighting designs for their homes. A popular choice nowadays is having your home outfitted with LED lamps matched to a controller that works as a master control for the lighting in your home. Not only does this provide you with the versatility of using a wide variety of tones and colours in your rooms, but it also keeps your energy costs to a minimum by having a central control panel which allows you not just to change colours but also adjust brightness depending on how much light you need.
