Seasons are changing. From the cold winter months, spring has come. And sooner than you think, it is summer once more!
As seasons change, so do home design trends. It’s time to replace your thick window curtains with sheer ones to let in more sunlight. Switch from the dull grays to the more vibrant shades of aquamarine and teal.
Put some splash of color and pattern into your room and give it a more youthful vibe!
Vogue has listed down some inspiration for this season. Let’s take a look at some of the 2017 Home Decorating and Interior Design Trends.
Shades of Green
Green is back! What can be more tropical than this color? Moss green reminds us of the lush rainforest. Emerald is the color of the calm seas. Whichever ‘green’ you pick in the spectrum, it will give you that updated spring-summer home trend look.
Make a bold move by changing that outdated wall color. If your house has been screaming for home improvement for so long, this might be the best time to do so! If you aren’t as adventurous as that, throw in some lime green pillows on the couch or pair your white plates with green glasses.
If you’re not ready to let go of your grays just yet, keep ’em! Neutrals are creating a hype this season. Pair this palette with whites, beiges, and blush pink and you are set for the season!
One good thing about these colors is that it can work well during all four seasons. If a green wall makes you apprehensive, neutral shades will work just fine.
Geometric Lighting Fixtures
Well, say hello to fresh new takes on lighting fixtures! Your home can be dark; too dark it feels like a dungeon.
Hanging lighting fixtures can be instant accessories to your home. Pick those ones with geometric shapes. These won’t only add more light to the room, it will also make the space look more curated.
Home improvements may include modernizing the lighting fixtures. If you’re planning to do that on your spring home repair, might as well do it right!
Bronze, Brass, and Marble
These elements dominate this season’s trend. An updated kitchen and bath should include these design elements. What’s good about revamping these areas of the house it is will most likely increase the value of the property.
Home buyers will want to skip kitchen and bath repairs if they are planning to buy a house. If you already had these areas updated before you sell the residence, you are most likely to find a willing buyer.
Don’t Be Afraid of Home Improvements
When you think of home improvements, it makes you cringe! The cost can hold you back from making necessary maintenance and repairs.
What you fail to see is that home upgrades may help increase home value. Some federal loans require you to keep the property in a reasonably decent state. Doing home improvements, therefore, is essential to homeownership.
Aside from loans, the government also provides grants for home repair. Although these home repair assistance programs have specific guidelines, it can still be used to make the residential property updated to the current home trend so long as it follows such guidelines.
The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) acknowledges that homes are investments. And because it is an investment, you have to put in some money to keep it in good condition.
The Title I Loans can be used to make improvements that make homes more livable and useful. This loan is backed by the FHA (Federal Housing Administration). The funds cannot be used to build luxury amenities such as swimming pools. It, however, can go towards installing dishwashers or ovens that are built into the house.
House remodeling needs careful planning. It is great to take inspiration from new home trends, but it would be best to make improvements that can be timeless and can work all for all seasons.
