Top 10 home renovations trends for 2015

Home Renovations

Home renovations are completed to transform a home into a new era, to get rid of the old and introduce the new. Trends and home renovations come and go as society and culture changes around us. If you are planning on revamping your home in the year 2015, you can check out these new ideas and see if they inspire you to move forward to the future.

1: Energy efficient appliances

Home renovations often mean that new appliances will be bought. If you are installing a brand new kitchen, you might like to invest in a new fridge or dishwasher that looks the part. Energy efficient appliances encourage sustainability and recognise that power bills will only continue to rise. Think ahead and purchase smart now.

2: Sustainable materials

Sustainable solutions are a new trend, as home owners start to realise that their building choices have an impact on the greater environment. When you choose materials for your home, consider how they affect the energy efficiency of your home, and if their use harms people, animals, forests or land.

3: Love for the sun

We love the sun in Australia, and home owners want to invite it into the places they live. Light increases positivity and reduces the need for artificial power. Think of innovative home renovation features that you can use to support a happy and healthy lifestyle through the sun.

4: Big windows

Big windows mean more light and more breeze that can flow through your home. They will also open up your home to the outside world so you do not feel as though you are living in a tiny box. Big windows can also work as doors, so you can extend your indoor living space into your backyard.

5: Timber floors

Carpet is out and timber and tiled floors are popular because they are easier to clean, are better for pets, and support children with allergies. Timber floors come in a huge range of colours and textures, and can really enhance the entire look of a room.

6: Classic colours

Bright colours can be used in small amounts, but classic colours continue to rule because home owners understand that their preferences in 2015 will not be the same as the ones they have in five or ten years. Also, many home renovations are completed with the intention of increasing property value and buyer interest. Homes with classic colours will be easier to sell.

7: Efficient storage

As time goes on, the more we own. If you cannot build a bigger house, get creative with the space you do have through efficient storage solutions. They will keep your home tidy, and clutter free.

8: Practical solutions

Some trends look fantastic, but they are not practical. Families like to live comfortably and be relaxed these days. Gone are formal lounge rooms, to be replaced for practical spaces that let people simply be themselves.

9: Easy to clean

Nobody has enough time to clean their home properly, so do not make it hard for yourself. Innovative designs that allow a home renovation to reduce cleaning time and effort in the future are nothing less than smart.

10: Creative landscaping

2015 home renovations are not just about the interior of a home, but the exterior also. Introduce entertainment areas for the entire family, but also quiet places that you can nestle up with a good book in solitude.
