For an insight into what’s ‘hot’ and what’s ‘not’ at home this year only requires a little scouring of the web, but we’ve done the hard work for you and uncovered a few of the likeliest big home improvement trends…
There’s always much anticipation in the design industry ahead of colour experts’ Pantone announcing their Colour of the Year and in December they announced that ‘Living Coral’ had got their vote for 2019.
They described it as “An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge.” If that makes little sense to you it is basically a peachy shade of orange!
You will be seeing a lot of it over the next 12 months and this article usefully points you in the direction of premium and budget homewares you can buy in this very vibrant colour.
Perhaps it’s the amazingly warm summer we had last year that is encouraging householders that like to entertain friends and family members to open out their kitchens to a patio or decking area in readiness for this summer.
The installation of a bi-folding door is perfect for this situation as it can be completely folded to one end to completely eliminate any current barrier between a kitchen and the outdoors. Just make sure everyone has somewhere to sit with chairs, bean bags etc. set out in anticipation of their arrival. You could even create your own bar outside!
At the turn of the year, Pinterest (an invaluable source for anyone wanting inspiration) revealed that searches for ‘tin interiors’ have risen by a remarkable 563 per cent and the great thing about tin is that it can be pretty affordable.
Tin is used to manufacture all sorts of homewares including everything from backsplashes to protect your kitchen wall from splashes to charming decorative flower pots that you can hang outside your house, so you can easily jump on the tin bandwagon.
Terrazzo floors were originally invented in Venice during the 15th Century and consist of chips of marble or granite set in concrete and polished to give it a smooth surface.
But the terrazzo style is no longer just limited to flooring as you can find it on wallpaper, bed sheets, lampshades, you name it! You wouldn’t want too much of it in one room but an injection of it here and there will make an eye-catching impression.
