Thinking about renovating your house in the new year? You’re not alone! Home improvement projects commonly sneak in as a new year’s resolution and now is a great time to start planning. If you’re looking for some inspiration, consider these home renovation trends predicted by HGTV for 2019:
1. Interior paint job using warm colours.
If you’re browsing interior design blogs for paint colour ideas, you’ve probably come across a lot of cool grey. Grey is still trendy and a great, neutral wall choice, however warmer colours might make the cut next year. Consider a soft gold, mossy green, warm amber or a subtle cream for your next paint job.
2. Installing quartz countertops, but with warmer colours.
Warmth seems to be the trend for the year ahead. Quartz countertops that mimic the look of marble have been popular for a long time. Now we are seeing quartz in warmer, neutral tones become more popular in kitchen design. These tones can create a cozier, homey appeal.
3. Put in larger windows.
Let’s expand your view for 2019! Big open-concept living spaces are being matched with larger windows. This creates an airier atmosphere, allows in plenty of natural light and views of outdoor spaces. If you want to install larger windows, make sure you purchase energy efficient models, or you could see energy lost.
4. Replacing darker floors with light hardwood.
A few years ago, dark hardwood floors were trendy. To complete the light and airy look mentioned above, light wood floors compliment open spaces, large windows and warm tones. Instead of dark cherry wood, consider birch, beech, alder, pine or white oak for the floors. If you have a smaller home, light floors can help open the space too.
5. More natural materials in the bathroom.
Interior designers are putting more natural materials in bathroom renovations. Think of design features like natural stone feature walls and solid wood vanities that show off natural wood grains. Natural stone countertops are still in, but in neutral, warmer tones. If you don’t want to splurge on stone countertops, accessorize with a marble soap dish or cosmetic tray.
