2017 Home Renovation Trends

Kicking off the year with a home renovation project? Don’t get left behind on what’s ‘in’ and what’s ‘out’ this year. Hille’s Home Extension summed up some of the most incredible home styles that are expected to set the trend this year, according to various home design magazines, trendsetters, and remodelling authorities.

  1. Bright Green

Pantone Inc., a colour authority and provider of colour system, rendered “greenery” as 2017’s colour of the year. This type of green falls into the bright, vibrant shade and represents rejuvenation, rebirth, and refreshment.  Pantone’s executive director, Leatrice Eiseman, notes that the person who would adapt this colour is likely thinking about change and realigning, revitalising themselves vibrantly.

It is assumed that bright shades of green, inspired by nature are hues that are likely to be seen in décor, fashion, and commercial designs throughout the year.

  1. Faux Finishes

Elledecor, a reputable source for home designs and inspirations, mentioned faux finishes among the top 10 home trends that will shape up most household in 2017. Turns out, designers and homeowners are now opting for more budget-friendly alternatives. They’re talking about faux leather, foliage, and faux wood ceiling – which is actually a better alternative as it does not rot, unlike its authentic counterparts.

  1. Navy Accent

Among the trends, Elledecor has predicted that will emerge this year is the use of navy, instead of black, in accenting a room. As black can sometimes make space looks smaller, navy is an effective alternative and could pair well with most color schemes. Consider these blue bedroom ideas on your next home addition venture.

  1. Raw White

Another development for 2017 is the shift of preference towards artisan items, and along with this is the emergence of chalky white and bone white hand-crafted goods. As items within the shades of “raw whites” look natural and unearthed, they could effortlessly pass as handmade and made of natural materials.

  1. Stand-alone Shower and Tubs

Tub-and-shower combination isn’t the only bathroom floor plan out there.  Stand-alone showering rooms will soon make a statement. Talk to your home renovation contractor to ask for a range of styles that will take up less space.

  1. Foldable Appliances and Spaces

2017 is also the year designers embrace merchandises such as foldable rooms and tucked-away appliances to cater the need for functional space.

  1. Attic Getaways

Much like basement renovations, attic remodelling projects are fast becoming a trend and will continue to do so in 2017. Both are a cost-effective way to add extra space in the house which you can convert into a bedroom, storage room or entertainment room.

  1. Accent LED Lights Under Cabinets

With the right technique, using LED lights as the accent under cabinets can give the illusion it was floating. LED lights can also be used to apply lighting theory if your purpose is to convey certain moods.

  1. Matte Appliances

Out with the brush teal kitchen, matte gives objects a glossy look and a high-end impression. A sleek grey finish on your cupboards or cabinets will match modern appliances, which are commonly made of dark stainless steels nowadays.

  1. Smart Appliances

As devices continuously become part of people lifestyle, it is expected that designers will soon find a way of incorporating charging docks and areas in our home for these gadgets. A fine example of the looming generation for smart furniture is IKEA’s SELJE night stand.
