3 Hot Home Trends You Need to Try in Your Home This Year
It’s tax return season, and after speaking with your accountant if you decide to use that cash to revamp your home you may be unsure of exactly what you want to do with your space. Need some ideas? Let’s take a look at some of the hottest home design trends for 2018.
In your kitchen right now, you probably have some shelving that you use to store your plates, bowls, glasses, and mugs. Typically these are cabinets which have a door that can be closed. One of the latest trends in the design world for this year is getting rid of the cabinet door and leaving your shelving open. Open shelves create more space and ultimately give you, the homeowner, the chance to store larger items. They’re an extremely popular choice for modern kitchens.
This year, people are taking the white approach to a whole new level. Usually, people will have white tiling in their bathroom or shower. But consider incorporating white flooring in unusual spaces like kitchens or living areas instead of your bathroom. It can really help brighten up dark rooms and goes with any theme or color combination. Since it is white, though, you have to be extra careful and properly clean and take care of it. Make a simple kitchen remodel by pairing your white flooring with the open shelves discussed above. A minor kitchen remodel like this has an average return on investment (ROI) of 82.7%, so it’ll be helpful if you’re looking to sell your home one day.
The garage is becoming more than a place to park your cars and store household items. The garage is a lot of times used as a social gathering place for family and neighbors to hangout. You can have cookouts in your driveway, watch TV and easily access your garage “refreshments fridge”. To help support the wear and tear from parked cars and heavy traffic, your garage floors should have a concrete coating placed on them. Some of the coatings have really great designs and can add to the overall decor of your garage.
Smart Home Controls
If you don’t have a Google Home or an Amazon Echo in your house, you’re probably not living in the 21st century. Almost everyone these days has one of these smart home devices hooked up in their house and use it for things like playing music, telling the time, and staying updated on what’s happening in the world. These smart devices can also be used to control things like TVs, fans, and even lighting. They’re flying off the shelves, so if you don’t have one you need to get one as soon as you can.
If you’re struggling to decide how to update your bathroom, kitchen, or home tech this year, don’t hesitate to take inspiration from one of the tips listed above! Who knows? You may end up loving your home even more!
