Keep your home on trend in 2022 with our renovation ideas

Homeowners are constantly looking for ways to add value to their homes. From the front door to the back garden decking, there is always something you can do to increase the value of your home. A great way to increase the value of your home is to consider a renovation project in 2022. If you are interested in renovations but don’t know where to start, we have a few project ideas for you to consider.

A home for the family should be a welcoming place to live. This includes both the interior and exterior design. In addition, a historic home oozes charm and character that other houses do not. An updated home should include some modern features such as energy-efficient appliances, and a fresh coat of paint.

Materials and designs to consider modernising your home exterior

If you are a homeowner who has recently purchased or built a new home, you may be considering ways to add value to your home. Adding value to your home can be done by updating the look of your home and improving the overall value. The right changes can make a house more valuable, and it can also increase its marketability.

Blackwood cladding – nothing shouts luxury and style more than beautifully charred timber cladding to the exterior of your home. Featured on programmes such as Grand Designs, adding blackwood cladding to your home gives it a long-lasting and hard-wearing finish that is durable and stylish. 

Rendering – You will have seen that rendering the exterior of a house is becoming more popular as we look at ways to make our homes look unique. Rendering is an elegant and cost-effective way to give your home a facelift. Rendering is a process where material, usually cement with a combination of other materials, is applied to an exterior surface of a building. 

Exterior painting – If you are looking for a cheaper option to change the front of your home, repainting may be a better option. A great choice if you are trying to hide tired or mismatched brickwork. Choose a lighter colour such as cream or white to brighten the front of your home and help it look finished.

Combine your ideas and inspiration on a mood board

You will have so many ideas to refresh your home, but it can be easy to get carried away and you may end up with a jumble of finishes that you are not overly happy with. One way to combat this is to create a mood board so not only can you keep track of your ideas, but you can make sure they flow and fit together nicely. 

Don’t start in the furniture shop! 

As tempting as it is, the furniture for your home should be the last thing you are considering. Start with the basics, including the layout of your rooms, the colour schemes and what you are trying to achieve in terms of style. Choosing the furniture should be fun and exciting which is why it’s often left until last, so you aren’t trying to then match the style of your room to the furniture pieces you have chosen. 

Write down all your measurements

Don’t forget to keep a record of all your measurements. If you live in an older house, the chances are all your rooms are going to be a slightly different size. Don’t be caught out in deciding how much paint you want or how many rolls of wallpaper you may need. Keep those measurements handy either on your phone or in an interior design app so you can get them out and check when you need to.

There is nothing more fun or exhilarating than freshening up your home, whether you are focusing on your exterior walls, or the internal furniture pieces and accessories. We hope you have found this blog informative, and you have come away with some great ideas to brighten your home for your family and your investment!
