Home update trends you should make in 2022
You can give your home a real lift by updating it in 2022. But sometimes it’s hard to know where to start with renovations. If you’re lacking inspiration, then read on to discover some of the latest home update trends you should consider this year.
Following the coverage of COP26 last year, fears over climate change have grown amongst the population. As a result, many people are looking for ways to cut their carbon footprint – and home updates are one excellent way of achieving this. For a start, using repurposed materials is a good way to update your home in a sustainable way. By using repurposed flooring, for instance, you can avoid the carbon-intensive process of producing new materials. Finally, you can take sustainability even further by adding solar panels to your home.
Storage has also been a huge trend of late. Whether you live in a large or cozy home, there’s always a desire to get the most out of your space. This can be achieved with simple additions too: you can opt for a new walk-in wardrobe in one of your bedrooms or add a shed to your garden. Either way, adding storage to your home usually adds value.
Many people are looking to elevate the appearance of their bathroom this year too. Bathrooms are often overlooked, but sleek renovations can refresh your home entirely. One option is to add marble surfaces to your bathroom for a hint of luxury. Alternatively, you can switch to a more industrial look with exposed bricks to create a rustic look for your bathroom. Meanwhile, a budget option is to freshen your bathroom up with natural light and plenty of plants. Most of these updates can be done with some simple DIY, but there are also some bigger changes you could make that would require some outside help.
How to work on a budget
Working on a budget is critical: you should only spend what you can comfortably afford. If you’re on a tight budget you could consider cost-effective upgrades such as a new stair runner, repainting surfaces such as the floorboards, and reinstating the fireplace.
Updating your home can be an extremely rewarding project. And by following the advice above, you should be all set to pick out some upgrades that take your home to the next level.
