Make it pop – It has become common practice to choose an area, spot or even element in a room that excites you, and then focusing attention on it. This is a chance for you to be creative, and is one of the easiest ways of renovating your home. Pick an element – try to choose only one or two in any given space – and then accentuate it by painting it with a bright or contrasting color. If you are moving into a new home, this is even easier, as you will have a blank slate to work with and most likely find it simple to choose your new favorite elements. It’s a great way to show off nooks in your home that will otherwise go unnoticed.

Create space – Open floor plan homes, or design concepts that allow the outside into your home are all the rage at the moment. Without unnecessary walls and clutter, open homes create calmer atmospheres. It is obviously much easier to choose a new home that already offers this, so be sure to keep a look out for this open concept while house hunting. But don’t be afraid to bite the bullet and renovate your existing home by knocking down a few non-essential walls, or even install a few new sliding doors or windows.
Play in your kitchen – Kitchens have become places of expression and creativity. When moving into a new home, be sure that the kitchen meets your specific cooking needs. If not, check that the space leans itself towards renovation opportunities. Renovating a kitchen is great fun, as you get to create a space that uniquely serves you and your family, centered on an essential part of your lives.
Save energy – Energy efficient appliances are nothing new, but to keep costs down they are the appliances of choice this year. While renovating or moving house, you might as well update your archaic and money wasting appliances in the process too. There are many exciting options to choose from, including high-efficiency dishwashers, washers/dryers, shower heads, toilets and more. They are sure to serve you (and your bank account) well into the future.
Neutralize – Trends come and go. But this trend is amazing in the sense that it sets the trend for other trends to come. Painting your new home (or your current one) in neutral colors means that you will be able to adjust furniture and styles to suit the trends as they come, without having to repaint every time. It’s smart and forward-thinking.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with the trends of 2014, and be sure to keep them in mind when shopping for your new home or updating your current home!
