Home improvement

As 2014 draws to a close, now is a good time to be thinking about improving your home in the coming year. Here are 5 hot new trends for 2015 when it comes to home improvement…

1. Bi-fold doors

Bi-fold doors have been steadily growing in popularity throughout the last few years. 2015 looks set to be the year they become widespread across many different types of home. Thanks to the innovative opening options that they offer, bi-fold doors enable you to open up as little or as much of a room to the outside, as you want.

2. Splashbacks

Splashbacks are an attractive, yet practical way to improve the water-protection of your home. Usually fitted to sinks in kitchens and bathrooms, splashbacks make cleaning and maintenance much easier to carry out. Innovative splashback designs look set to dominate the home improvement industry in 2015.

3. Space!

How space is utilised in a home is a trend expected to take hold in 2015. Over the last year, the uncertain economic climate has led many people to modify their existing homes instead of moving house. This trend looks set to continue throughout 2015.

4. Conservatories

Conservatories look set to regain their past popularity in 2015, thanks to the added space and aesthetics that they can provide a home. Available in a wide range of designs, materials and styles to suit any home, conservatories are a great way to add value to your property and to blur the boundaries between the inside and outside of your home.

5. Automated controls

Automated controls look certain to become a feature of many homes in 2015. Using the innovative ‘internet of things’ to connect appliances around your home to your Smartphone, automated controls allow you to control aspects of your home remotely. Perfect if you realise you left the oven on whilst you’re at work, or you want to turn the heating on before you get home, automated controls look set to revolutionise the way we interact with our homes.
