Fresh paint on the walls

Fresh paint on the walls

The fresh paint on the walls looks great! The colour is perfect and the finish is smooth. It was a lot of work to get the walls ready for painting, but it was worth it. The room looks so much brighter and more inviting now.

Looking to brighten up your interior space? There’s no doubt that painting is a fantastically easy way to freshen up your home, and B&Q have just announced their top trend for next year: fresh paint. According to the DIY store, blue and green are set to be huge in 2022 as people seek to revitalise their homes with bolder colours, injecting them with positive energy.

If you're looking to bring some calmness and bliss into your home, then greens and blues are your best bet when it comes to painting your living room. Blue is known to soothe us, as well as lower our blood pressure – which is always a good thing! Green patterns or plants tend to be even more powerful with regards to the soothing theme of nature. For instance, a simple paste the wall wallpaper can help introduce botanical elements into your own space without all of the hassle that traditional wallpapering involves!

Installing new carpet

Most people feel more comfortable at home and this leads to doing things that make them feel most 'at home'. However, spending so much time inside has revealed elements of your home that are less than ideal. Carpets are key for comfort as they add warmth, tactility, and coziness underfoot which is important for anyone staying indoors a lot of the time.

Even though wood flooring may not be going away anytime soon (13% of us do plan to buy wood flooring in 2021 after all), carpets meet one need we have at home - aesthetics. One might wonder: what makes carpet options such as Tapi Carpets & Floors a family favorite? For example 41% of Americans have hardwood floors vs 33% who have laminate wood floors! Of course there are factors to consider here such as price distribution or demographics but it also looks like some UK citizens prefer aesthetic needs when picking out their latest boomerangs. Products with an eye-pleasing design sell better after all!

Creating a home office

56 % of the United Kingdom worked from home in 2022, but many people were unhappy. They did not feel productive and had nowhere to go to be sustained. Rated People found that half of us were without a proper place to work at home, which is why we vowed take it upon ourselves to create a dedicated office space in our homes for ourselves. The number soared over the next ten years and renovations to accommodate flexible working increased by 38%.

Refurbishing the kitchen

In 2020, many homes and kitchens were used as makeshift offices because a lot of people were laying off actual offices. In fact, 2% of home workers reported that they use their kitchen tables as desks. Luckily, things have already turned around by 2022. People are more focused on getting more work done in less time at the cost of everything else, including the design and decoration of their kitchens. Since it's not exactly a necessity in today's world to have a fancy-looking office, kitchen or otherwise, it might be high time to take this into consideration if your home hasn't been decorated for who knows how long!

An interesting study by Rated People revealed that the choice of colour in our kitchens can influence potential homebuyers. According to their survey, 27% stated that a white kitchen would make them more inclined to purchase a property, while 22% pointed out that they could be swayed by a light grey kitchen.

Adding a home bar

Perhaps one of our favourite home improvements, Brits overwhelmingly chose to bring the bar to them with 46% choosing this option. This is no surprise in light of the recently extended lockdown measures or perhaps it's a lot more fun without the queues!
